The Man-serpent Greatsword is a greatsword in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

This single-bladed blood-stained greatsword is the choice weapon of the slithering serpent men of Sen's Fortress.
An ordinary human will have great difficulty swinging this heavy beast effectively.

AvailabilityEdit

Uncommonly dropped by the Serpent Soldiers which populate Sen's Fortress and the prison portion of The Duke's Archives.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Man-serpent Greatsword has the best Strength scaling of any greatsword, and requires no Dexterity, making it a good fit for pure Strength based builds. It's very similar to Bastard Sword in terms of moveset and speed, however, the lag between swings is slightly shorter for Bastard Sword.
