The Great Lord Greatsword is created by ascending any Standard +10 greatsword, ultra greatsword, straight sword, or dagger at the Giant Blacksmith in Anor Londo with the Soul of Gwyn, Lord of Cinder and 5,000 souls.
The Great Lord Greatsword has a fairly quick swing speed compared to other greatswords and has good base damage. However, its stat scaling is unremarkable, requiring large investments into both Strength and Dexterity to bring out its full potential. Additionally, its strong attacks, while particularly powerful, have very long windups during which the wielder is defenseless. For PvE, it is usable but tricky; for PvP, it is not recommended.
|Player slowly brings the sword behind their head, then smashes it straight down into the ground. Deals heavy poise damage.|
|Vertical, slightly diagonal slashes.|
|Wielder slowly brings the sword behind their head, then smashes it straight down into the ground. Can smash low-poise enemies to the ground.|

- Unlike the version wielded by Gwyn himself, the Great Lord Greatsword available to players lacks the fiery effect, and thus does not deal fire damage. Players cannot even imitate this attribute with Charcoal Pine Resin since the sword cannot be augmented.
