Wolnir's Holy Sword is a soul-transposed greatsword in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A holy sword eroded by the Abyss. When Wolnir fell to the Abyss, he was gripped by a fear of true darkness, and pleaded to the gods for the first time.
This holy sword, together with three armlets stripped from the corpses of clerics, gave him some semblance of comfort.
Skill: Wrath of the Gods
Thrust weapon into earth to emit powerful shockwave. The wrath of those swallowed by the Abyss is a thing to be wary of indeed.

AvailabilityEdit

Obtained by transposing the Soul of High Lord Wolnir with Ludleth of Courland.

CharacteristicsEdit

The second-lightest greatsword in the game, Wolnir's Holy Sword is a greatsword with unorthodox stat requirements. It scales most effectively with Strength and Faith, and is one of the longer greatswords available to the player. Its moveset consists entirely of horizontal and vertical swings, making it less useful in tight quarters and giving it less reach than other greatswords which have thrusting attacks.

NotesEdit

TriviaEdit

  • Prior to the Regulation 1.09 patch, Wolnir's Holy Sword lacked Faith scaling, but still had a Faith requirement to wield, like the Astora Straight Sword.
  • At first glance, the sword appears to be encased in wire-frame, but in actuality, the sword's true blade is surrounded by black metal which acts as the edge.
