The Watcher Greatsword is a greatsword in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

Greatsword wielded by the Throne Watcher. Unleash its true power to enwreath in magic.
The Watcher has stood by the throne for ages. Will his wait be worth the while?

AvailabilityEdit

The Watcher Greatsword can be acquired from Weaponsmith Ornifex by trading 3,000 souls and the Throne Watcher Soul.

CharacteristicsEdit

Similar to the Defender Greatsword, the Watcher Greatsword's special attack is a self-weapon buffer, which is triggered by wielding it in both hands and pressing the Parry button. Rather than a lightning buff, however, the Watcher Greatsword can buff itself with magic.

This buff costs 10 durability each time, meaning it can be used up to five times until breaking. However, the use of the Bracing Knuckle Ring variants reduces the cost of the buff (depending on the level of the ring used), allowing the buff to be used more before breaking the weapon.

In addition to the buff adding magic damage, it's fairly low physical stat requirements make it a practical choice for characters with high intelligence. This, along with it's lower weight, stat requirements, faster swing speed, and overall superior scaling makes it a much better choice than the Moonlight Greatsword for high intelligence builds.

NotesEdit

  • Can only be enchanted by it's own enchantment ability.
  • It's best infusion is Magic, as it increases it's magic damage. However, it receives no scaling bonus for intelligence.
    • Poison and Bleed are also good infusions, while maintaining it's great magic damage.
