The second-heaviest ultra greatsword in the game, the Ringed Knight Paired Greatswords are deadly powerhouses that are capable of devastating lone and multiple foes alike.
Requiring the wielder to hit the soft-cap for Strength to even consider wielding, the paired greatswords are capable of performing wide horizontal sweeps, vertical smashes as well as thrusting attacks, giving it a respectably varied moveset. It also possesses the Poise health of a great hammer, similar to the Fume Ultra Greatsword, making it very strong at trading against other Hyper Armor weapons of equal size.
The defining characteristic of this weapon is that it is paired, allowing the wielder to perform devastating combos that bring both greatswords to bear on one or multiple targets. Each individual attack has extremely strong stun potential, locking down foes and rendering them helpless to be eviscerated by the blades' high damage output. While the one-handed attacks can be parried, the paired attacks cannot. This can be useful for mixing up attacks against opponents who attempt to parry this weapon due to the one-handed moveset. Additionally, its skill can bring even more damage output to the table, as well as greatly extend the wielder's reach via launched projectiles and strong forward-momentum rush attacks.
However, all of the paired greatswords' attacks are very slow to bring to bear, making it easy to reaction-dodge by experienced players. Like other ultra weapons, care must be exercised to prevent the foe from exploiting openings and punishing extended attack combos, particularly with backstabs.
