For the Dark Souls II variant, see Soul Greatsword.

Soul Greatsword is a sorcery in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Sorcery developed for sorcerer-swordsman. Attacks with a greatsword formed from souls.
The ephemeral blade only exists as an extension of the caster, but its power is said to rival that of physical greatswords. Even the most obstinate magic purists may resort to this spell in times of crisis.



Forms a soul greatsword after a short delay, then swings it in a wide arc in front of the caster, dealing 2.0 times the Spell Buff of the wielded catalyst as Magic damage to all enemies struck.


  • Unlike other spells, this Sorcery can be parried, though only if the catalyst itself is parried.
