Lightning Greatarrows are a type of ammunition in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

Greatarrows imbued with lightning. Tipped with Gold Pine Resin.
Weapons fortified with lightning are effective against foes resistant to magic and fire.
If you require magic but have learned none yourself, these will serve you well.


Can be purchased from Royal Sorcerer Navlaan for 180 souls each. Navlaan is found in Aldia's Keep.


Lightning Greatarrows deal split physical/lightning damage, much like Fire Greatarrows, although it should be noted that the lightning damage is far greater. Enemies that are weak to lightning damage, "waterlogged", or donning metallic armor, will take much more damage than average, while enemies resistant to lightning will take less damage.

Like the other unique greatarrows, the travel speed is slower and the arrow will fall off more quickly at range. Furthermore, lightning-infused greatbows are a prime candidate for use with these greatarrows.


  • Since there is no way to completely negate both physical and lightning damage at the same time, these greatarrows are popular due to being unblockable by any means, and effective against most enemies encountered through the game, as they are naturally weak to lightning.
