The Profaned Greatsword is a soul-transposed ultra greatsword in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A ceremonial sword, held in Pontiff Sulyvahn's right hand, representing the Profaned Flame.
Long ago, when Sulyvahn was yet a young sorcerer, he discovered the Profaned Capital and an unfading flame below a distant tundra of Irithyll, and a burning ambition took root within him.
Skill: Profaned Flame
Temporarily summon the Profaned Flame. Lunge forward and use strong attack to enshroud blade in flame.

AvailabilityEdit

Obtained by transposing the Soul of Pontiff Sulyvahn with Ludleth of Courland for 3,000 souls.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Profaned Greatsword is a quality ultra greatsword that leans towards Strength builds. It is also one of the lighter weapons in its class, only outweighing the Astora Greatsword and Zweihander of the ultra greatswords that can be two-handed.

It has a very robust moveset, allowing the wielder to perform horizontal and vertical swings, along with various thrusting attacks as needed. Additionally, as it is imbued with the power of the Profaned Flame, fully charged strong attacks with this weapon, both one- and two-handed, will inflict additional Fire damage for that attack, making the strong attacks performed by this weapon unusually deadly. Its skill, Profaned Flame, can be used to give the weapon a longer-lived buff and inflict Fire damage with all attacks.
