Heavy Thrusting Swords are a type of Weapon in Elden Ring. Heavy Thrusting Swords focus on piercing attacks and are best used to counter or follow-up an enemy's attack. Their extra weight packs some extra physical attack power and still allows players to use this weapon with a Shield.

Heavy Thrusting Swords can be modified by a number of Ashes of War to change their Skills or Damage Type, so play around with them and see what you like as you acquire more.

      poise damage probs needs a little nerf. in pvp you can basically win any trade just by spamming heavy attacks

      • Anonymous

        If you like thrust-pierce from these swords and collossal weapons but cant decide? Try the pickaxe! Its a greathammer but can be power stanced with greataxes. Wtf?!

        • Anonymous

          Im literally only summoning guys using these just to get good at fighting against these weapons. BIGGEST PAIN IN THE ASS TO FIGHT! on the same level as crouch pokers. running attacks and crouch pokes should take more stamina change my mind.

            how to win every pvp encounter: apply royal knights resolve, running r2, running r2, running r2, running r2, running r2...

              I love how people come to the comment section to dislike comments talking about how heavy thrusting swords being silly.

              • Anonymous

                I want more slashing attacks from these, thats why I only use great epee. Cragblade looks like a great spear, Helice is a bl**d weapon and Stitchers Heavy attacks are thrusts. Hopefully we will get more weapons from this class with better heavy attacks.

                  This weapon class is the best thing ever happened in eldenring pvp not against even if its 2v1 just put flaming strike ngl its not easy to play with but its halla fun

                    slap glintblade phalanx on these with a cold infusion + powerstance with cold stitcher, add a potato, and baby youve got a stew going

                      My favorite weapon class for PvP so far. The running R2 feels unfair and hard to outspace under poor netcode, but it's actually very telepgraphed so could easily be reaction-rolled. In fact, if you spam the running poke too much, the relatively long R2 recovery means that you can easily be punished by equally good setups (e.g. halberd running R1, flaming strike, offstoc). The true strength of this weapon class lies on its (2h) jumping R1 which true combos into another R1. Unparryable, Good poise damage, fast jumping R1 recovery, great damage when it combos, covers great distance, can jump over poke attack, and can be slightly timed for roll-catching. This is why you should do a lot of hopping with these weapons instead.

                        This is the weapon for phantom range wins. The tracking on these is superb to every other weapon in this game with those run in stabs. Players can be way outside the visual cue and still get hit with these weapons and especially the bloody helice dodge attack. The tracking will be no where near the player and still hit.
                        Phantom range King.

                          This really need to be toned down. It’s just a spear that’s as fast as a rapier but as long as a spear. Plus it can double attack with no weapon art.

                          • Anonymous

                            This weapon class should do same amount of poise damage as smaller weapons such as swords, katanas and maces. Literally same swing speed if not faster, greater reach and damage. And yeah, have you guys seen the 2h combo speed? You cannot even roll attack punish, the time between attacks in combo is too little to do that. And you cannot outspace it with anything short of some longer spear or great spear. Just another example of great Fromsoft balancing.

                              I've mastered parrying this class because people just spam the same move.
                              If it had more recovery, then itd be more balanced. Till then, if you wanna use thrust, this is pretty much the only class you need.

                                fun new tech, running heavy attack can be performed while running backwards. just spin unlocked camera in a 360 and in the middle of it hit the running attack. precise to hit but potential is to be had

                                  The entire weapon class needs nerfs across the board. There is ABSOLUTELY no reason for the flail weapon class to be so inexcusably bad when you have weapons like heavy thrusting swords with absolutely NO downsides to using. Fantastic range, great damage, ridiculous phantom range, good stam consumption, good rollcatches, etc. There is currently no downside to using these crutch weapons right now.

                                        Recently noticed heavy thrusting swords (or at least the helice) have a neat heavy attack cancel by pressing backstep 2ce, haven't found much use for it though

                                          The running R2 needs nerfed, its pretty stupid as is but if you throw in lag you get people hitting you like a solid 3 meters past the weapons tip.

                                            All of these are bugged or the servers are trash (which they are): If you jump over them in pvp when they do a stab animation, they still hit you in mid-air, clearly over the weapon, and give you enough debuff in value of 3 normal hits. BS, if you use these, stop it.

                                              I'm worried they're going to nerf these, due to them being so good at poking those late game enemies which are always lunging half a room away after every attack ._.

                                                I'm not sure what they had in mind when they were balancing the heavy thrusting swords but they are absolutely cracked. They all have good reach, good damage, really good running attacks, and have posture damage that easily outpaces almost every weapon in the game. Powerstance these and I guarantee you that you will quickly posture break almost anything.

                                                        The longest heavy thrusting sword has less reach than an estoc due to the lack of movement when attacking, not to mention repeating r1 is pretty slow. The only advantage is the running attacks and maybe poise damage(?), but these are still outclassed by most things on base moveset alone.

                                                            So it looks like there are three different heavy attack styles in this weapon class. Great Epee has wide swipes, regardless of charge. Godskin Stitcher has a double hit when charged. And Helice and Cragblade will move the user forward when the heavy attack is charged, giving it deceptive reach. They all seem to have the same light attack combo, though.

                                                              Great épée is way better than bloody helice : adaptable (you can change the element), deal twice the amount of blood status effect, lighter, and available within the 10th first minutes of the game. only drawback : raw damage is slightly weaker (but better stat scaling) when imbued... and Bloody Helice looks really, really good.
