The Great Corvian Scythe is a reaper in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Great scythe of the forlorn souls guided by heretical storytellers.
The mistress of the Painted World is said to wield a great scythe herself.
Great scythes inflict profuse bleeding, such that the blood splatters on the wielder.
Skill: Neck Swipe
This attack aims for the scruff of a foe's neck, and when successful, functions as a head shot, inflicting heavy damage.

Availability[]

Dropped by scythe-wielding Corvians.

Characteristics[]

The Great Corvian Scythe possesses the same moveset as the Great Scythe. Its wielding requirements are higher, requiring more Strength and Dexterity to wield. However, its higher base damage and superior scaling make it a better weapon than the Great Scythe in almost every category that matters, making it especially popular for elemental infusions.

However, this comes at the cost of inflicting Bleed upon the wielder for every attack that successfully increases Bleed build-up upon a foe. This means that when fighting groups of enemies, the Great Corvian Scythe may become a liability as it is highly probable that the wielder will suffer a Blood Loss proc through landing numerous attacks in a short period of time.
