Golden Order Greatsword is a Greatsword in Elden Ring. The Golden Order Greatsword scales primarily with Dexterity and Faith, with minor scaling in Strength. It is a versatile Weapon that can deal considerable amount of Holy damage both in melee and at medium range.

 

Greatsword made of light, modeled after the Elden Ring itself.
Forged by King Consort Radagon to proudly symbolize the tenets of the Golden Order.
One of the legendary armaments.

Telltale signs betray that this was once the greatsword bequeathed to him by his first wife, Rennala.

      I really like this weapon, but having such a high dex requirement for it to scale like a unupgraded weapon is so Miyazaki.

      • Anonymous

        Really hoping for the balance patch that was mentioned 1 day before the DLC release to do something to this weapon.

        In my dreams I imagine it being buffed like this:

        - The explosion part of the AoW now applies a sacred blade weapon buff right before the explosion

        -The wave part is now unblocable and deals 50 stance damage.

        The sacred blade type buff will both give it the extra base damage buff it desperately needs and double on the anti undead passive it has by default, and the stance damage buff to the wave part will rewards player who actually manage to complete the AoW against a boss by either breaking their stance or leaving them very close to being stance broken.

          Why do people complain so much about stat requirements, I'll never get it. I always try to get my vigor and main stat to 40 and all the other atleast to 25, this way I don't have to worry about stat requirements with 99% of weapons that I'd possibly want to use in my build. Sure, this way of allocating stats is suboptimal and I could have like 25% more damage investing all of these points into one stat, but it sure as hell is better than complaining online about weapon stat requirements.

            This weapon is all over the place. That dex requirement while having absolutely shitty scaling, being Holy damage and the Weapon Art being useless as ****. What a waste of a design. Elden Ring is plagued by so many SLOW moves for the player, while enemies jump all over the joint and combo you. It makes these moves either PVP-only, or impractical to all but anyone who has mastered a fight.

                  "made of light" weighs 10 miyazakis, surely because it was another sword before!
                  meant to symbolize the golden order and forged by Radagon, no int scaling... surely because it looks like the Elden Ring!
                  21 dex req, surely because from doesn't want anyone to ****ing use this thing...
                  looks godlike (quite literally), SURELY TO PISS ME OFF

                  • This sword is actually quite great at bullying Omens down in the Leyndell underground sections. If you can get the first explosion off at close range it'll stagger them, then the followup attack knocks them down. If you cast the ability again within melee range of the downed Omen and have both sword slashes hit the Omen you'll poise break them, which'll allow you to do a crit finish on them. Considering how annoying Omens typically are to fight in melee, being able to deal with them in just two AoW casts is nice.

                      Great design but missed opportunity to make the weapon art the faith version of the moolight greatsword. Buff the weapon and send gold proyectiles with the heavy attack.

                        Other than the fact that you can get it before the Elden Beast fight, I can't think of a reason to use this instead of the Sacred Relic Sword.

                              -Sword gifted by Rennala, probably one of the most powerful sorcerers bar Lusat/Azur.
                              -Dark Moon Greatsword tells us that this is Carian tradition and scales with int really well.
                              -Recipient of sword is Radagon, secretly the god Marika (or the other way around depending who you ask) and leader of a religion defined by scholarship.
                              -Radagon reforges a magic sword of the Carians and imbues it with the power of Order, a concept unique to his religion.

                                This weapon, like the Golden Order Seal and Golden Order Incantations, should scale with both int/faith. The same is true of death: death sorceries/ghostflame sorceries/the Prince of Death catalyst all scale off int/faith... Yet the death/ghostflame weapons, eg Helphen's Steeple, do not.

                                This doesn't seem like a bad *balance* decision, it seems so utterly inconsistent that I have to conclude it's a massive oversight and mistake by From. I hoped it would get fixed, but we're so far into the release now it doesn't seem like it'll ever happen...

                                  How I hope weapon art would change/have different effects based on what Great Rune you currently use.

                                  Godrick: weapon gets greenish aura and buffs your poise and all attributes with +5 for 1,5 mins.

                                  Radahn: Weapon deals additional fire damage for a period of time and has reddish tinge. You gain small resistances to poison and rot.

                                  Rykard: Every enemy killed will boost your attack power to a certain amount. Weapon art is colored orange/red and deals fire damage at the expense of holy damage.

                                  Morgott: Weapon deals only holy damage for a period of time, but holy damage is majorly buffed. Weapon art triggers small self healing buff. Strong attack triggers golden slams on the ground.

                                  Mohg: Weapon is tinged blood red and deals bleed build up. Holy beams are colored red and also deal bleed buildup.

                                  Malenia: Every connected swing heals you a bit. Swings become little bit faster. Weapon art has one additional slash. Weapon art deals scarlet rot build-up, but wearer suffers from it too.

                                    lots of people saying it should scale with int because its golden order and yeah, theyre right. but ALSO it should scale with int because it used to be a dark moon greatsword (or because it was from rennala, maybe a full moon greatsword) lore wise it used to be a pure int weapon lmaooo

                                      the nerdy over-fixation on weird details in these comments lol. it's a big glowing golden holy sword and it shoots a big beam, you're not allowed to complain. hit a big group of enemies or someone in pvp with the beam, you'll cream your pants and stop worrying about whatever arbitrary little number or scaling letter has you tearing your hair out

                                        Say what you want about this weapon, but dual wielding it along side Darkmoon Greatsword looks absolutely awesome and solves the INT Faith build dilemma somewhat.

                                          If Dark Souls 2 made this weapon it would scale with your number of Great Runes and each new one would visibly appear on the blade

                                            Strictly pvp speaking, weapons like this and half of ER's catalogue are just disappointing man. Dark Souls 3 had such better varied weapons, along with cool covenants. Granted there were some stupid ones like Farron Greatsword spamming and Pontiff Curved Sword, but PvP just doesn't feel the same / nearly as enjoyable for me :(

                                              It's literally called: Golden Order Greatsword. But it's scaling has nothing to do with golden order. Stick to a sacred clayman spear because that is apparently more golden order than this meme of a weapon. Seriously I only ever see max level phantoms using this, & it's usually offhand powerstanced with a sacred relic sword or inseparable sword, because that's how many dex faith weapons we have. My tears evaporate as I blast them with the only real int faith scaling weapon in the game, before getting oneshotted by an uncharged gransax volt because I had to invest 60 points in faith & 40 in int just to deal decent damage. Gankers order represent!

                                                Isnt it weird that in the biggest FromSoftware game there's literally 1 weapon for faith+int build (that i dont like at all) and not a single infusion, while in much smaller DS3 there was a separate casting tool, type of magic, two infusions and a number of unique weapons?

                                                Looking at damage this thing could be good for Int+Fth just because It's one of very few weapons that have more elemental damage than physical, but stat requirements are brutal.

                                                    This sword feels way too unique to be a simple throwaway dungeon weapon. Part of me believes that this was once supposed to be Radagon's weapon for the final boss battle, but it would transition poorly into the Elden Beast fight where Radagon's body would be made into the Sacred Relic Sword. Also fighting two greatswords in a row wouldn't be very interesting

                                                    Radagon was a skilled smith, so him wielding the weapon he forged himself out of pure light in semblance of the Elden Ring definitely feels more in line with his character for a final boss battle than a stone hammer.

You have the weapon of the leader of the int/fth faction, a weapon which used to be an intelligence weapon that was transformed into a golden order weapon, and what scaling do you give it? Int/fth? Even pure faith? No, dex/fth. Heck, it feels like it has high requirements just to make it harder to use on a golden order build. Just anti-fun design.

Thought it'd be like the coded sword and cipher pata. Feel like it'd be a lot cooler as a pure faith weapon with at least like a A scaling with most if not all damage in holy. It just makes sense to me.

If MGS lasts 60 seconds, the ability in the golden order greatsword should last like 20 seconds.

Aow that looks cool but takes 4 days to cast, no hyperarmour, no range, bad hitbox, no damage and costs an absurb amount. A sword that looks cool but is weak but the strongest thing about it is its weapon type and it makes you regret ever using it as you consistently do less damage to endgame bosses than you did to bosses before caelid.

The weapon art is flashy, but lot particularly useful, and 3. Inseparable sword has a better moveset in 2h anyways.

                                                                        Seriously, this thing is a disappointment. The explosion from the weapon art is too slow to be of any use, and using the follow up eats your fp for less damage than you'd get using an incantation. The scaling of the weapon is strange as well, where for some reason it relies partially on dex? Use inseparable sword if you want a somber holy greatsword, or you can swap to blasphemous blade since the requirements are justified on that weapon.

                                                                        • Anonymous

I was dealing less than 300 damage per 2hR1, so it was pretty difficult, especially for a first timer that came from a slow game such as ds1. I am more proud of this than I am of me defeating Malenia with this same weapon for my first time as well.

                                                                            Then changed it to 150 + 54 physical (E and E), 231 +210 magic and holy (B and B) for 1086 AR (71 higher than the blasphemous blade). Finally, changed its aow by removing the stupid salute that never hits anything. Change it to three inputs of 10, 10 and 10
                                                                            and make the waves not hit the ground and actually what you are aiming at with each input sending out a wave of light.

The only thing I wish was this weapon gave a natural healing regen, just having it equipped you have a health regan buff indefinitely.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    While Radagon's totally original Sunlight Greatsword™ is comparable to the moonlight/ dark moon Greatsword due to its origins, it is still its own weapon.

                                                                                    The main issue with this magic hunk o' runes is that while being a legendary armament forged by a god while utilizing a sacred satellite fragment, it's scaling is abysmal when compared to a sword that was used by two very close brothers.

                                                                                    If this weapon wishes to prioritize holy damage, then it should have at least a mid to high A in faith as well as some more generous physical stats. After all, legendary and remembrance weapons are made to have higher than average scaling by design. If the blasphemous blade can get away with this, then it shouldn't be much of an issue.

                                                                                    To end my odd rant, I wish to tackle the weapon art. It's bad. If a weapon made mimicking the grand macguffin of the game can only explode and reuse sacred blade to a poor extent, then it is not worth being a chunk of weighted light. I propose that it's similarities to the elden ring may grant it a unique property. Perhaps the ash of war could go without the big laser sword and capitalize on the initial explosion, allowing it to instead buff it's wielder via the activation of their equipped great rune for around 45 seconds. I believe this would make up for the horrible start-up and allow for a fun mechanic to balance this sad little glow stick.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

I can think of no other reason why they wouldn't add an intelligence scaling to it.

I'd say bring Dex requirements down to 13 and make it E in scaling, then give it a int scale with the same requirements as faith. Both being C scaling (B at max level)

                                                                                                • A greatsword with E strength scaling, a higher Dex requirement than strength despite having D scaling, and it still weighs 10.0 despite being made of light. I ... I think I see how it ended up in the cave. Awesome weapon, but what on earth are those requirements and scaling numbers? And on a legendary weapon? At least it's cool and does amazing holy damage... Until you get past the very next story boss (fire giant) and every boss is 40 - 80% resistant to holy for the rest of the game. I have so many questions as to why they did this to such a cool weapon. I still love it, but this is certainly a choice.

                                                                                                    • Beautiful looking weapon and one of my favourites aesthetically in the whole entire game…. Unfortunately not the most viable and am hoping it gets a buff/rework in the future

A little tough for 150 but you can fit a nice 52/50 int faith stat spread with 60 vigor in the 168 meta range. I’ve only ever tried it on my first character that ended up being way over leveled. Would love to do a 168 invasion build powerstancing the two and throw in some golden order incant cheese and maybe slicer. Also everyone talks crud about holy cause late game boss resistances but dang. This thing SLAPS trash mobs everywhere except haligtree. The dang thing has wrath of gold built in. Just a little slower.

A couple of nice changes might be: make it a hybrid INT/FAI weapon, to fit into Order builds, make the skill deal a bit of Physical damage to help make up for Holy's inconsistency in the late game, and maybe make it weigh less/nothing, considering it's made out of light.

                                                                                                          • Anonymous

There's only like 2 int/faith weapons (Sword of NF and Clayman Harpoon w/ Sacred), so it'd be nice if this was another option.

                                                                                                            • Anonymous

It's weapon skill is pretty slow. The AR isn't particularly impressive and it deals mostly holy damage which is resisted by many of the bosses in the late game. The sword has virtually no niche where it shines comparatively to other greatswords. But at least it is not stuck with Sacred Blade eh?

The WA is super slow if you want to hit the second half so I kind of wish it had a separate heavy and light WA. I wish that the initial blast would be L2 + R1 and the wave as L2 + R2. Also why do the Lionel misbegotten have a monopoly of legendary weapons?
