Great Club is a Colossal Weapon in Elden Ring. The Great Club scales primarily with Strength and is a good Weapon for dealing Physical Damage. The skill attached to this weapon also has a unique ability that unleashes a blast of energy and releases them as golden darts.

 

An enormous club of hardwood. Wildly hammering foes with this
striking weapon requires no dexterity; only brute force.

While it may seem sacrilegious, this weapon is said to be a withered branch of the Erdtree.
Imbued with holy power, this weapon will never snap.

          So how exactly does Golden Land scale on this? Just with weapon upgrades, or does it somehow magically scale with Strength as well?

          • Anonymous

            If you’re faith just use large club or curved great club with the same weapon art. Golden land will one shot most players if you’re at 50 fth on sacred infusion. If you’re pure strength just us large club with war cry. This weapon doesn’t have good strength nor faith scaling so it’s useless. I’m gonna look into whether this weapon has any merit when used at 13 int 50 fth, 35 str with Orders Blade buff and regen. Icon shield might be a cool aesthetic too

                I always find great club design to be funny. They make this huuge club of hardwood but tiny little handle so they dont have to animate new hand position to hold it.

                    whhy they changed it from the ds3 move set? i missed the horizontal swings in the prev game. absolute beast. all colossals now play the same with the crappy overhead swing besides UGS which has the crouch poke lmao

                      I tried this out on the guardians in caelid earlier because they have a decent health pool. I don't know if it would be any better against undead enemies. pathetic would be an accurate description for the damage the weapon art projectiles do, the initial explosion has stagger to it, but its hard to judge how effective it is with the tree guardians, they don't have high poise in the first place. at 50 FTH and with all projectiles hitting a single target locked enemy the TOTAL damage to its health pool was a whopping 56, that's not a typo, total damage from all projectiles hitting one enemy was fifty six. compare that to reduvia's weapon art, available to the player very early in limgrave.

                        For anyone who has used great club in the past I believe there is no reason to dislike this version. First off the damage may not be up there with the other heavy hitters but it still hits hard enough. You can’t change ash of war but honestly after some time using it in pvp I noticed it’s good for catching people in the aoe then chasing with running r2 for roll catch while they panic roll for the projectiles. Also can’t get past how sexy this hunk of wood is. Fellow great club bonk bros don’t lose hope! Praise the holy club!

                            Well, well... I just looked into the game parameters out of curiosity and it actually has entries for the infused versions. Usually unique weapons only have one entry for their standard. That explains the upgrade table on this page. But they checked an option called "prevent affinity change". I hope they just did it accidentally, because why would they do all the effort to write fully functional entries (which have a lot of fields to put values into) for every affinity and then just be like "nah, the standard is good enough".

                                  It may have been a bug that this can't be infused. It is upgraded through smithing stones not somber. Seeing as the weapon art is an ash of war you can add to other weapons it's not very unique. The issue with this weapon comes from the damage. Since it isn't a somber weapon it doesn't gain the same large amounts of damage that those weapons get. It has a B in str when fully upgraded, which should really be A because if you compare to weapons with similar damage and weight, they outshine this clubs damage when infused. If this weapon could get infused with heavy it would be comparable.

If they were intent on making it some Holy type thing with its gden land art, they should've at least given it holy damage too or extra physical from faith scaling, maybe B or at least C scaling in faith. Like cmon large club is now better in every way.

                                        Im confused the wiki says it cant be infused with an ash of war, then it says it can a few lines down. Can it be infused?

                                        • At +24 and 80 str 2 handed:

                                          Great Club (can't infuse) - 749 AR
                                          Large Club Heavy infused - 708 AR
                                          Curved Great Club (heavy) - 719 AR

                                          Why would you ever use the great club (a colossal weapon) over the other two which are just great hammers? Especially if dual-wielding them is an option? Why can't you infuse this great club? This weapon is just another example of someone at From Soft being limited to velcro shoes if you catch my drift. Terrible.

                                                      I’m confused. Why does this upgrade with normal stones, with no split scaling, yet it can’t be infused? I’d get it if golden land were unique for the great club but you can slap that on anything you want. It seems like it was an oversight. I do love the R2s though and I will keep using it because I’ve used the great club since DS1… but they did it dirty on here.

You can still buff it with weapon buffs and greases, plus, Golden Land takes into account what you buffed the weapon with. I’ve tested this with Black Flame blade and Bloodflame blade and both of their effects work on both the weapon itself and the AoW.

                                                          To be honest, Golden Land is actually pretty good, the club is not…

                                                          Also, can someone fix the upgrade table? This weapon is locked to Golden Land and can’t have anything else equipped.

                                                            This weapon seems to get a bad rap, but I'm a clubber through and through so I wanted to give it a try. Here are my initial thoughts:
                                                            Heavy attacks with this weapon feel GREAT. Tons of hyperarmor and the amount of poise damage you deal is kind of absurd. I really like the unique animation as well, it's like you're trying to squish your opponent with the tip of the club.
                                                            Not being able to swap out the weapon art kinda sucks, but Golden Land is pretty decent. The only thing I would swap it out for if I could would be quick step, but infusing a caestus for my off-hand or something would probably work just as well. Not really a huge loss imho.
                                                            The biggest drawback to me is the B scaling. This essentially punishes you for playing a hybrid build, even though the weapon art scaling off of faith seems like it's trying to incentivise a fai/str build? Kind of a confused design choice imo.
                                                            As someone who's running a pure strength build, the only thing I can see myself swapping this out for is the giant crusher. Even then, I probably won't. I just like it a lot. Definitely not for everyone though.

                                                              It feels like the only reason this cannot be infused is because of the description saying it's a branch of the erdtree, and instead of making it a strength/faith weapon they just locked it's skill and called it a day.

                                                                  Compared to the Large Club, it is over twice the weight, much slower to swing, cannot be buffed and has a skill that cannot be swapped out. It's not a horrible skill but it doesn't really alleviate any of the Great Club's weaknesses. In exchange you get a little more damage and stagger.

                                                                  Really not worth weighing yourself down with how heavy this thing is.

                                                                  • Anonymous

The large club CAN be infused - the great club is a useless piece of crap that cant be infused, has bad scaling and an ability that already exists as an ash of war you can find and put on other way better weapons

The weapon art, super cool, but almost every swing is straight ahead with lots of recovery time. A slow weapon like this needs more wide swings to deal with groups.
