Elden Ring Ash of War: Carian Greatsword Notes & Tips

  • Outperforms Carian Grandeur in terms of damage if Carian Grandeur is only charged once, but charges more slowly, making it harder to use.
  • Damage of Carian Greatsword scales with Int, upgrade level, and infusion affinity, not with weapon's AR or Int scaling value.

      I really wish this attack was fast & horizontal like the spell. Especially considering we already have the charged vertical attack of Carian Grandeur. There’s very little reason to use this version once you get the more powerful one.

        I don’t see the value in doing the Standard version of this…it looks like without the Magic it’s just a regular sword?

          Tested on a Lordsworn's Straight Sword +8 with 22 int - At fully charged, Carian Grandeur does 43 damage per FP - Carian Greatsword does 61 damage per FP - I don't know why you'd ever use Grandeur then.

            If Rogier dies before you've bought this spell from him (Ranni's quest), is there any way to obtain this spell other than him?

              What's the difference between this and Carian Grandeur? Is it that Grandeur can be charged one more level?

              • Anonymous

                Takes a long time to charge and is easily canceled when you get staggered. You need a lot of poise if you want to consider making use of this ability.
