      The scaling on this is unfortunate on faith builds but it isn’t to be overlooked.

      Dexterity still boosts casting speed and its investment can boost incantation damage per second more than Faith at certain levels.

      It’s speed still rivals the Blasphemous Blade and it has more reach than the former.

      If you are going for new game plus, 80 Faith and 40-50 dexterity is a reasonable investment on a level 200 build.

      This weapon then actually starts becoming on par with the Blasphemous Blade. It’s attack rating is outright higher.

      Taker’s flame is still great but the debate of what’s better at that level starts to equalize.

      The winged scythe makes a great sidearm.

        This thing absolutely destroys Radagon. Killed him from full health in 3 R2s (all 3 hits connected). Godslayer indeed...

          “Colossal weapon”

          “God why would they make such a cool looking greatsword colossal-

          “Faster move-set”

          Aaaaand it’s my new favorite weapon, and that running r2 is just sexy.

            This weapon is absolutely GOATED. I got this up to +9 what feels like pretty early in my run because I took some detours that had me in high level areas pretty early, and it’s basically trivialized everything I’ve fought since. I’ve three shot bosses. I never liked big, slow weapons in Souls games before, especially since I always tend to do Dex/Faith builds, so finding a big sword that scales off those and looks cool plus does fire damage had my attention. This plus the Peeler plus the Black Blade is definitely my final loadout.

              I have the sword but the blackflame weapons kill won't work. I have the stat requirements, but when I try to use it, nothing happens. My character just slowly swings the sword. Is this a glitch? Does anyone else have this problem?

                I'm probably the only idiot in the lands between to think he can poise break someone using the ash of war in full veterans armour and get hit by the ash of war....wow

                  The GOAT weapon... at +10 with 35/35/50 STR/DEX/FAI, the weapon art hits for 3500+ when all 3 hits land. Kills just about everything at Brace of Haligtree in 1 weapon art combo. Basically easy mode. Have barely used anything else since picking it up. Went back to Rennala and respec'd my build around it. Highly recommended!

                    Someone's probably brought this up somewhere in the comments section but I'm too lazy to check: The very first swing of its AoW doesn't use FP and can be interrupted by a roll/backstep. Not sure how useful it'd be in a PvP setting, though I guess it'd be a useful way to mess with people thinking you're going to pull off the entire combo.

                      A much better moveset than the other colossal swords have, but I'm not talking about its speed. The normal CS move set make me feel like my character has to use all their strenghth just to swing the dumb thing, but using this sword feels more like I'm using my strength to actually put considerable force behind it. In short: the cathartic feel of this weapons moveset makes using other colossal weapons feel lame.

                        Does this weapon maintain its unique attack speed advantage now that colossal sword normal attack speed has been buffed in general?

                        • Anonymous

                          Good damage, staggers and breaks stance decently while being faster than other ultra greatswords which i find important as i usually pick faster weapons but this seems to have a good mix of decent speed for the punch and stagger it packs with a good range overall making it great for anything that doesnt resist fire damage too much

                          The weapon art requires a pretty big opening to pull off without getting hit but if you can time it right packs a wallop

                          Got this fairly early (around lvl 50) and with only the minimum stats to use it and upgraded to +5 its close to 500 ar already so looking forward to seeing its full potential, more of a ng+ weapon probably but seems to be very strong for ng if you can get it early on

                              Godslayer Greatsword looks like onyx blade. Onyx blade drops from Vilhem. So sir Vilhelm is the Gloam eyed Queen confirmed.

                                This weapon is absolutely nuts in the best possible way. Like insanely good.

                                I managed to stomp the godskin ******* with my level 70 dex/faith character and grabbed the weapon.

                                At first, I was just messing around with it, since I mainly use halberds, spears, hammers etc.

                                Then I decided to fight the duo at redmane castle and hooooooly ****. This sword MELTS bosses. At least where I am at right now.

                                The weapon art was hitting for roughly 2k, at +5 and moderate points in dex and faith. I think I am at 30 fth and 27 dex with this character right now.

                                So as you can see, not anywhere near max potential, and its making quick work of caelid enemies and bosses.

                                At SL70, you aren't really meant to be here, but the weapon equalizes everything here so it's much more easier.

                                Dragonbarrow is a different story, but the weapon is carrying everywhere else so far.

                                It has so much going for it. Its massive, and thus hard skin enemies get smacked around like nothing, its fire inherent meaning fire weak enemies get bodied. It's beautiful, it's fast, and most of all? It works extremely well with a dex/faith build.

                                Not my favorite weapon in the game by a country mile, but it earns top 5 status for me at least. Grab this thing and give it a shot!

                                  This is one of the game's cooler weapons because it competes well with others in its class despite high attribute requirements and relatively low split damage AR by occupying some niche territory. With its unique and slightly faster move set, good reach (third behind GUGS and zweihander), light weight (second behind zweihander) and immensely powerful weapon art that's slow to execute but grants hyper armor, it's a stylish option for anyone willing to invest in it. And because its physical damage scales best with dexterity and also has fire damage scaling with faith, a hybrid incantation build can use this very effectively even in one hand with a fast casting speed. It's the kind of weapon you base a whole build around.

                                    One comment saying this sword needs the black flame on normal hits. They don't know what they are talking about, I've been using this as my weapon of choice for a good while and its R1 and R2 or "normal hits" have always had the black flame. You can actually see it every time you land a hit.

                                      I wonder if we'll meet another Godskin enemy that wields this sword as a boss in an upcoming DLC, considering this weapon was made by/for the Godslayers.

                                        The funny part is that omen cleaver curved greatsword has the same ar with either flame art or sacred infusion on dex/faith build... This sword really needs either black flame effect on regular hit (it ain't a knife for it to melt anyone and Vyke's spear exists...), higher ar or be as light as an actual great sword (with it being essentially hollow in the middle)... The skill is cool don't get me wrong but some spice to it would be nice...

                                            This sword takes the edge off some strong enemies at Farum Azula very nicely. Seeing it absolutely wreck the banished knights you start seeing around the dragon temple was validation that I hadn't wasted the ancient dragon somber stone to upgrade it to +10.
                                            These are NOT the same as the banished knights in Stormveil or Caelid, at least one of them can use dragon communion incantations. But seeing the weapon art work so well really is a thing of beauty. A charged two handed R2 staggers them just long enough to allow you to trigger the weapon art before they can trade, and again before they can recover properly and hit back after the initial R2 the first low hit from the sword as it swings out before both slashes of the queen's black flame staggers them again before they can land a hit or move out of its range. I haven't needed to use the follow up attack once the first has been enough they don't seem able to cope with it, I haven't seen any of them try to use their shields to mitigate some of the damage.

                                              The weapon made to kill gods is one of the best weapons for killing The Elden Beast, coincidence? Methinks not.

                                                I think its worth noting that the weapon art is very effective against npc invaders who will make no attempt to dodge your swings and will often try to interrupt you only to eat the entire attack which will either take most of their health off in one go or outright kill them, especially since it gives you considerable super armor once you start swinging making it hard for most Tarnished to knock you out of it.

                                                  Might be unintentional but this sword is kind of like an counterpart to the Firelink UGS Soul of Cinder uses. "Blade" widens instead of shrinks and is hollow, but still has a cascading pattern and has a fire related skill/AoW. It sort of looks like a sheath for the Firelink UGS.

                                                    People talk about stance breaking with flame of frenzy, but it would probably be easier to stance break with a random weapon using flame of redmanes and then switch to godslayer gs and use its weapon art.

                                                        I wasn't too concerned about getting this because of the f**king platforming bollocks needed to get to the bottom of Caelid's divine tower to get it. If I'd known how awesome it is I would have made it a priority much sooner. It hits hard as a colossal sword but the weapon art has destroyed one difficult boss after another most recently the duo gargoyles at Siofra aqueduct. One comment says use it with bestial incantations another with frenzy but this sword and its weapon art is devastating with black flame ritual.

                                                          This thing is insane and still does 1,300 to magma wyrms. I love this weapon.

                                                              These 2 incantations are great for creating windows to safely cast the weapon art: 1) Aspect of the Crucible: Horns for knocking down smaller enemies and humanoids; 2) The Flame of Frenzy for stance breaking larger enemies and bosses.

                                                                Consider pairing this with the Frenzied Flame Seal. It provides the highest incantation scaling if you invest primarily in dex. The Flame of Frenzy is great for stance breaking bosses/ large enemies before going in for the 3 hit L2 combo. Frenzied Burst for sniping. Both also benefit from fire damage buffs.

                                                                PS: The stance damage from Flame of Frenzy doesn’t scale with anything, so even at low faith you can stance break most bosses with 2 charged casts.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

Very fast, incredibly long, with extremely large damage numbers, seriously. I rolled my eye a little when I saw it did split damage but on a second viewing, it turns out this thing's raw damage is on par with the Black or the Blasphemous Blade, while dealing fire on top. The weapon art also has a lot of poise on it, so unless you're fighting bosses you can quite literally facetank things, the first swing of the giant combo even stunlocks some mid-sized enemies like the Omen, just a radical weapon all around!

                                                                          • Anonymous

Might as well say the all colossal swords moveset is functionally similar which would be true as they do the dame swing pattern, so long as you're one handing. Whoever edits this page just doesn't want to admit the godslayer greatsword has it's own unique moveset. Just like lorettas Halbert, or the cross naginata spear, or many other weapons with unique movesets. Stop with the comparing to greatswords crap it's misleading and absolutely unnecessary and is obviously coming from someone new to the souls games.

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    • Anonymous

It's got a cool moveset for a colossal sword, I like the weapon art even if it's kinda slow, the DoT is nice, and I think it's one of the cooler looking weapons in the game. I like comining this with the talisman and armor that increases jump attacks and then just going hog wild with it.

                                                                                        He's the thing: it's an amazing colossal sword, and smacks the crap out of most smaller enemies.
                                                                                        So realistically, I never find myself needing to use the WA on regular guys, even groups.

                                                                                        That leaves using the WA for big boys and bosses. And on my build, yeah, it will absolutely decimate healthbars.

                                                                                        However--
                                                                                        I find I'm either getting staggered half the time, or trading a big hit and having to drink a flask after the fact.

                                                                                        Now, you could say "it's a chess game, you need to gitgud and find the right time to pull it off." And you're not wrong.

                                                                                        But I also have these other options that are just as good, and don't leave me with such inconsistent results.

                                                                                        Why risk this sword's WA when I can Giant Hunt yeet Omens with a greatsword? Or Blasphemous WA even big boys to the ground?

                                                                                        I'm just asking for a shortening of that opening flourish, so this thing can become more useful against what it was made for-- giant ****ers who hit like trucks

I'm running around on a pseudo faith-quality build (34 str and dex with 50 faith) and power stancing the godslayer sword with maliketh's black blade just for fun. Even with 14 poise the ash of war super armors through most attacks. With fire buffs and shard of alexander's talisman it's a deadly trading tool and I haven't run into anyone with enough poise to tank the swings on the AOW. Alas, it's very slow and has a fixed speed so it mainly works as a gank spank on overly aggressive fingers. Unlocking and free aiming has some uses for the follow-up strike but don't expect this to do much other than send people who level vigor like it's DS3 into a loading screen.

                                                                                              • Anonymous

But it was a pretty nice build, I couldn't hit the ash of war not once, but the black flame spells allowed for quite a lot. I had range effective crowd control and a ring of safety. The sword didnt do op damage but it was fast, and I could play aggresive whith it. All in all it was pretty fun.

When I picked it up, it played the legendary pickup sound and showed it to be a legendary weapon. I'm confused, its not listed on the wiki as legendary and is also not required for the legendary armaments trophy... Weird

Looking at those two slashes, my brain immediately went to the Mortal Draw skill from Sekiro, and I assumed the range on it must be pretty good! It’s a big fire slash, right? On actually using it, though, you have to be pretty close to get it to hit anything. Sometimes it feels like there’s an invisible wall 10 feet in front of me, protecting enemies just outside the reach of the blade. The damage is great, but getting it to hit requires careful positioning. I think it could use a range increase of 20%-ish.

                                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                                              • The ash of war has a pretty great amount of hyper armor. At 61 poise, I seem to be able to tank a heavy hit from the omen’s in the Shunning Grounds that I would otherwise be staggered from. Very nice. Would recommend.

                                                                                                                  I tried out MANY weapons in the game to find which one gives the most reliable posture break and stagger, and Godslayer's greatsword outscaled everything else I tried by a complete landscape.

                                                                                                                  It can literally stagger anything that can be staggered, and even greatshield enemies can't make your hit recoil upon blocking, not even if you only 1 handing the weapon.

                                                                                                                  Is there any other weapon which can do the same thing with the same or faster attack speed, or only Godslayer can do this? Cause I did not find any alternative to it.

                                                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                                                              It's almost impossible to use in PvP, let alone in a 1v2 or 1v3 situation.

                                                                                                                              The damage doesn't even make up for it. Whereas things like the Moonveil can easily oneshot, this thing requires at least two or three hits from the art to connect for a proper kill unless your enemy has like 10 Vigor or negative defense.

                                                                                                                              IMO, the thing needs a small buff to the speed of its weapon art... Or a base damage buff to make up for its weight and mixed requirements, such that it can slay players with two hits flat out... One hit if they've got 10 VIG or somesuch.

                                                                                                                              Because as-is, it's a cool weapon and a massive let-down for what you need to dump just to wield it in medium armor alongside an off-hand casting tool and a secondary right-hand swap-out dagger without fat-rolling.
                                                                                                                              Fromsoft needs to show this thing some love.

                                                                                                                                Some tips for using this sword:

                                                                                                                                The wind up on the ability, is about the same time as it takes for an invader to spawn in. Meaning, you can stand on them and greet them with an immediate thwack to the face and if they're not prepared (I.e. NPC's) the follow up swing is likely to kill them.

                                                                                                                                Stonebarb Cracked Tear is excellent with this weapon. As it already has decent poise break potential by being a colossal sword (Not as much as other colossals but still quite high) and with the Tear you can fairly easily stagger many bosses which gives enough time to use the ability to blow them up.

                                                                                                                                When mounted, use strong attacks. The attack speed is pretty much the same as light attacks because of the colossal sword one swing "Combo" for light attacks, but you do more stagger and can hit 2+ times (By hitting with the "Charging" portion of the strong attack and the strong attack itself). Also, it's hilarious to flip enemies like pancakes with the strong attack.

                                                                                                                                The ability, can actually hit 3 times. The initial pulling the sword back to wind up for the first swing can deal damage, about 50% that of the first swing itself. So get up close to targets to get that extra hit (Some targets are in fact staggered by burns and so that first bit of damage can actually stagger enemies long enough to land the swing. Things like Onyx Lord, some human enemies etc)

                                                                                                                                When riding Torrent, be mindful of ledges. As being a large sword, it is susceptible to the bug where running off an edge will not allow you to use Torrent's second jump. If you are planning to do any platforming (Such as if you're trying to grab the loot from the bottom of the Bestial Sanctum), swap to something else.

                                                                                                                                Some facts about the sword that make it kind of a neat thing to have for general Faith builds:

                                                                                                                                Dealing Fire damage makes it excellent against Handtulas because fire damage causes them to be set on fire stunning them and dealing massive damage (Sadly, using this doesn't make them burst into black fire...)

                                                                                                                                Being a colossal weapon, it doesn't give a hoot about heavy armoured enemies like Miners and will not bounce off them or deal reduced damage despite not being Strike damage. (Note; Some miners carry firebombs in their backpack. These will be ignited by the fire damage this does)

                                                                                                                                In the same vein, being a colossal weapon, it won't bounce off shields either, while having a good amount of guard break to boot.

                                                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                                                  Great moveset, speed, ash of war and damage output. A shame it looks like complete ass, what the hell are you using to cut? It doesn’t have an edge for gods’ sakes!

                                                                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                                                                    I'm using this in a modded playthrough that makes it buffable and makes Black Flame Blade last 80s instead of 8 and I must say... This thing looks absolutely SICK when buffed with BFB, as the black fire runs down through the helix blade.

                                                                                                                                    I always did think that it had an odd design for a "Sword", but seeing it buffed with Black Flame Blade makes me understand that design. It's kind of like a reverse buffed sword, where the Black Flame is the "Sword" and it's encircled by the steel.

                                                                                                                                    • Anonymous

The sword is just an abolute beast. Its no fun useing a greatsword if i dont even have to fight. Plus that i hate Ranni very much

                                                                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                                                                        The damage on this thing's ability is absolutely obscene, if you can get a window to hit both slashes you will annihilate bosses

                                                                                                                                        • Anonymous

All the colossal/greatswords would be more fun to use if they had better animations, as it is they redefine clunky. Many of the big hammers and axes somehow feel quicker

                                                                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                                                                            I really wanted to love this weapon. It's design, lore, and just overall feel makes it one of the coolest weapons in the game. But it feels lackluster compared to some of the bigger contenders for /best/ weapons. By no means is it a bad weapon. It's very balanced, especially since it can be double buffed with Flame Grant Me Strength. But if you're used to face rolling things like with Rivers of Blood, you'll feel sluggish when using this. Run this bad boy when you just want to enjoy the game and not meta pubstomp content like a Youtube clickbait title.

One hit of the L2 does like 1000 damage. Feels really good and looks awesome. I highly recommend it for any faith build
