For the Dark Souls II variant, see Flamberge (Dark Souls II).

The Flamberge is a greatsword in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Greatsword with an undulating blade. The blade, resembling flame, was crafted to mutilate flesh and induce bleeding.
Skill: Stance
While in stance, use normal attack to break a foe's guard from below, and strong attack to slash upwards with a forward lunge.

Availability[]

Drop from the Flamberge-wielding Thralls in the Undead Settlement, Cathedral of the Deep, Grand Archives and Dreg Heap.

Characteristics[]

Despite having an average moveset, the Flamberge excels in its raw damage, while also being the only greatsword to inflict bleed and dealing purely Slash damage (with exception of the Stance strong attack, which deals Thrust damage).

This raw damage does have the penalty of a very poor scaling, but it is still very good, and its minimal requirements to wield it properly might make it an attractive choice for any player.
