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.

      This was the original Moonlight Greatsword. Radagon made it into FTH weapon because he could. I get it, FTH builds could use their own version, but instead of Rennala's nicer looking Moonlight GS, we got Ranni's frosty hand-me-down.

        Why this has such a high Dex requirement and the Moonlight greatsword doesnt??? They are supposed to be equivalents

        • Anonymous

          Incredible how every legendary weapon seems to either require Intelligence, Faith or Arcane. If you are playing a full STR playthrough, you can't enjoy using them!

            Skill literally produces the Golden Order incantation symbol but has no int requirement. Let me remind you that this is the only family of Incantations that has a spell that is INT only and 37 INT at that. No incantation from this family has solely faith stat requirements. Not to mention the damn thing is based of the Moonlight Sword. Just straight goofy.

              Despite it not being the best option for dmg, this sword is pleasing to the eye. I carry it around as my 2nd blade along with the Blasphemous Blade, the passive from the Blasphemous blade is just too amazing along with its Ash to not carry it.

                Lore-wise, the end-result of a **** move. Gameplay-wise, an otherwise decent weapon though you'd be wanting something with more firepower.

                  Need someone to confirm if my memory fails me. At 1.06 the attack and ash of war can prevent skeleton to revive like how Golden Epitaph works, which I remember it wasn't before? My character just started NG+ so I only tested with the skeleton at summonwater village (both mob and summon of marine).

                    Ah yes fromsoft games where a poisonous plant can be poisoned, the goddess of rot can be scarlet rotted, a fully armored knight can be easily bled and the most lore significant damage type is also the weakest.

                      Faith users rate my idea

                      I'm going for a faith/dex sort of thing where I powerstance the balsphemous blade and the golden order greatsword. I've got plenty more points into faith than dex bc of the better scaling too. In my off hand, i've got the erdtree seal to swap for the golden order greatsword for the occasional incantation i.e. golden order, fgms, etc.

                        Some halfwit saying too many cool weapons have been ruined by doing holy damage proves beyond any doubt they are not very bright. It isn't the weapons doing holy damage that are the problem. The problem is the idiot design decision to give the majority of enemies a stupidly high damage negation to holy apart from "those who live in death" especially when taking into account how much of the game's story and lore involves the golden order and the erdtree.

                          Man, it really took them more than a decade to add the 'Faith laser sword' from Demon's Souls back. About time, imo- Faith has never felt more fun.

                            Be warned, for whatever reason, probably an oversight; this sword is entirely unaffected by the 1.06 patch.

                            At the time of writing, it's speed is noticably slower then all other greatswords except the Sacred Relic Greatsword.

                              Weird how this sacred and legendary greatsword used by the second elden lord got left in a random cave where some savage wild beast got its grubby hands on it.

                                Why do so many greatswords scale with dex? Especially unique greatswords with faith or int...its hard to find an interesting looking strength weapon.

                                  I respecced just to use this against the death [rite] bird punks. The holy damage and bonus against undead works great.

                                  The consecrated snowfield bird would be more fun if the artillery mausoleum could hurt it too.

                                    Why this weapon isn't and Int-Fth hybrid when thats the entire premise of golden order incantations and seals is beyond me

                                      The hell is up with this weapon? It needs 21 Dex to wield but has D Dex scaling at +10? And the WA only scales with Faith?

                                      For a pure Fth caster (80) build, Inserarable Sword and Sacred Claymore seems like a better option.

                                      For a Dex/Fth hybrid (55/50) build, Sacred Relic Sword outshined this thing in everyway.

                                        Being made of light, it should have had shield-chip like shotels do, would make it more than just a skeleton hunting tool

                                          Aggravating with how many enemies resist the Holy damage-type. It's a cool looking weapon, but if you're looking for a good faith-scaling GS, you're better off using an infused weapon instead with Flame Art.

                                          • Good News: Faith builds have their own version of the Moonlight Greatsword!
                                            Bad News: It has funky stat requirements, a worse overall weapon art, a highly situational passive effect, and a damage type that nearly everything in the country resists.

                                            But hey, it looks really cool.

                                              just a weapon for dex users to be able to use sacred blade with sacred on a greatsword while still retaining some sort of scaling. Why would they go so far as to change a lore sword for something like that, idk.

                                              • Looks good, but I was not impressed by WA. Maybe I need to do more testing, but Gargoyle's Greatsword with Lion's Claw or Double Slash seems way more effective. And it is a str/fai sword unlike Golden Order Greatsword.

                                                  This weapon is weird. Its another Golden Order weapon that isnt Int/Fth. Also, its made of pure light, but has a weight of 10.

                                                    Outshined by the Blasphemous blade in most situations, if it scaled with INT it would make it much better. As it is there isn't much reason I can think of to use this outside of it looking cool as hell.

                                                      Odd how the skill on this produces the Golden Order Fundamentalist symbol, a family of incantations that has dual faith/int requirments or only int requirements, yet scales mostly with faith.

                                                        They really make all Golden Order incantations scale with / require both INT and FTH, only for the corresponding Greatsword to only scale with FTH? Cmon guys...

                                                        • Something to keep noted: The first explosion on this weapon art costs less FP, has poise, and deals more damage than an uncharged Wrath of Gold. The only thing WoG has over Establish Order's explosion is cast speed, knockback, and slightly more damage if you charge it which takes longer.

                                                          Establish order: 20 FP (15 FP with carian filigreed crest talisman)

                                                            In Irish mythology, the first king of the Tuatha De Dannan had his sword arm cut off, replaced it with a prosthesis, and then began wielding a sword of pure light. When you use Establish Order with this weapon, you do the Inner Order emote, which gives you the silhouette of a person missing their sword arm.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    Seems like a misstep not making this require/scale with intelligence as well. For one thing the Golden Order is this game’s designated Int/Fai faction, so it makes sense that the weapon most visually and mechanically aligned with the Order would require both. For another, I just like those sorts of DS1 Greatsword of Artorias design weapons that require high stats for (at least in theory) a high payoff. Cool weapon, though.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      What’s truly baffling is you will rarely see this weapon in PvP. Combine its AoE hyper armor with 70+ poise and you can disrupt and out trade meta “great pokes”

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              It should require like 35/35 in Intelligence AND Faith with at least a B scaling in each at +10!!!

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                Despite being made of light, it has a regular weight of 10.00.

                                                                                Despite being a "Golden Order" greatsword, it only scales with Faith, meaning it does not synergize with the Golden Order seal.

                                                                                Lastly, it's found in a random cave wielded by a random duplicate miniboss. No reason, it's just there. At the very end of the game, so you can't get it early, which is a real shame. There, now it's a completely unique weapon that can give the extremely niche Int/Fai builds a weapon to use that isn't the sword of night and flame.

                                                                                If I were to redesign this weapon, I would completely remove the physical damage and replace it with magical, and then have it scale with Intelligence and Faith. Make it weightless too.

                                                                                • Anonymous

Doing INT/FTH and dual wielding this in the main hand and Dark Moon in the offhand and it destroys. The weapon skill combo on the golden order (L2 twice) knocks stuff back on both hits, and the range both horizontally and distance projected are much further than the Dark Moon at the cost of increased FP use. However, with Dark Moon in the off hand, I can enchant it with its weapon skill and two-hand it at will for faster projectiles with magic affinity. They both scale B off their respective caster attribute, and D on dex which is pretty useful. I feel like a true Golden Order Wizard of the Stars with the Prince of Death Staff and Golden Order Seal. Even if that doesn’t quite make sense, it looks and feels super cool. Very effective weapon I recommend it for anyone utilizing holy damage as part of their build. Even if you’re not equipping it 100% of the time, it’s useful to carry with you to throw out some long distance holy damage that slaps things to the floor. Dark Moon projectiles are still better for poise damage, but that’s what makes having both so great.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

Considering its theme, the skill on it producing a Golden Order Fundamentalist Symbol AND being derived from a Dark Moon Greatsword. Would've honestly preferred Intelligence requirements / scaling, whilst lowering the physical requirements.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        • Anonymous

It would be so fun if they let you keep shooting as long as you used the explosion once at the start. Double slash animation is sick.

Despite being a "Golden Order" sword, it is not split Faith/Int like the Golden Order Seal. And despite being "made of light" it also weighs what a normal greatsword would weigh. I would have loved to use this with the Golden Order Seal but unfortunately they don't synergize.

Like all the other golden order stuff is faith/int. Hell the description even indicates this may be a repurposed mlg, Telltale signs betray that this was once the greatsword bequeathed to him by his first wife, Rennala. this makes it feel like it should have the int scaling.

                                                                                                                        • They did a wonderful work with this sword in the new patch (1.04.1)! The salute explosion now deal 2/3rd of the arc's damage and the swing comes out so much faster than before. I was already using this sword on my paladin build, and now its even better!

                                                                                                                            Is it really that big of a deal to hit them one more time on the ground during the very generous window they take to come back?
