Not to be confused with Greatsword of Artorias or Abyss Greatsword.

The Greatsword of Artorias is the Cursed version of the Greatsword of Artorias and a greatsword in Dark Souls. In-game, it is displayed as "Greatsword of Artorias".

In-Game Description

Sword born from the soul of the great grey wolf Sif, guardian of the grave of the Abysswalker Knight Artorias.
The sword can damage ghosts, as it was cursed when Artorias joined a covenant with the creatures of the Abyss.

Availability[]

The cursed Greatsword of Artorias can be created by ascending any standard +10 greatsword, ultra greatswordstraight sword, or dagger (with the exception of the Straight Sword Hilt and the Broken Straight Sword) at the Giant Blacksmith in Anor Londo with the Soul of Sif and 5,000 souls.

Characteristics[]

The Cursed variant of the Greatsword of Artorias has the rare curse effect, which allows it to hit the Ghosts of the New Londo Ruins.

The cursed Greatsword of Artorias shares the same moveset as the uncursed version.

Unlike the standard Greatsword of Artorias, this cursed version deals exclusively physical damage. Although it has substantial Intelligence and Faith requirements, they do not contribute to its damage; this makes this weapon an unattractive prospect for most character builds. On the other hand, because it only deals one kind of damage, it can out-perform its non-cursed counterpart against enemies with high defense even when it displays lower total attack rating.
