The Lothric Knight Greatsword is an ultra greatsword in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Ultra greatsword of the venerable knights of Lothric. Imbued with the strength of lightning, the trademark of dragon hunting.
Very few have demonstrated the extreme strength and dexterity required for this weapon, even in the long history of the Lothric Knights.
Skill: Stomp
Use one's weight to lunge forward with a low stance and increased poise, and follow with strong attack for an upward slash.



The Lothric Knight Greatsword is a rather unique weapon in a few ways. It is a Dexterity-oriented ultra greatsword that benefits from infusion with a Sharp Gem. As well, it has innate Lightning damage, allowing it to deal damage through shields.

This innate Lightning damage makes the Lothric Knight Greatsword very useful for Faith-oriented builds as well. When infused with a Lightning Gem, the weapon gains extreme amounts of Lightning damage that scales well with the player's Faith, making it a very fearsome weapon indeed. And when infused with a Blessed Gem, both the physical damage and the Lightning damage will scale with the player's Faith, giving them the best of both worlds.

Even without the above infusions, the Lothric Knight Greatsword can still be very powerful in the hands of a good Faith build. When buffed with Lightning Blade, the additional Lightning damage is added on top of the innate Lightning damage, greatly augmenting the weapon's effectiveness.
