          As much as i love gravity magic and this sword look, magic infused Omen cleaver on same str/int build deals 60 damage less then this, while being able to choose ashes of war for it and having the same weight...
          Sure the strong attack is different, but it isn't useless...

            every other gravity weapon is black, this thing being gold kind of annoys me lol. and a stiff breeze will knock you out of the weapon art. other than that tho its good. nice scaling and damage. curved greatswords are also good fun. recommended

              Yo will pick this weapon up, play with it for a minute, it will feel horrible to use, and you will put it back down.

                Amazing weapon fashion and move set wise, but the AoW is a bit disappointing. I wish unique weapons like this would at least let you select from a specific type or category of AoW (magic, flame art, sacred) as a limitation, instead of being fixed with just one.

                  20 STR, 16 DEX, 99 INT: 720 AR
                  99 STR, 16 DEX, 16 INT: 787 AR
                  20 STR, 99 DEX, 16 INT: 650 AR
                  50 STR, 16 DEX, 50 INT: 792 AR, 844 AR (2H)
                  80 STR, 16 DEX, 50 INT: 854 AR, 884 AR (2H)
                  99 STR, 99 DEX, 99 INT: 934 AR, 971 AR (2H)
                  Sword will increase 2-3 AR in STR scaling at +10 from 20 to 80 STR, and 2-3 (mostly 2) AR in INT until 50. Adding any DEX from base will increase AR by 0-2 (mostly 1) pretty much indefinitely. 1 level into DEX increased AR by 1 every other level (0 being the other increase) with some random 2s sprinkled in.

                    Does this sword even have a hyperarmor? Is this a bug? Any mob in solo can knock down the castes of this sword for a hit. This is a joke.

                      The damage isn't bad at all, would absolutely use it more if it had waves of darkness or Onyx lord explosion into meteorite attack as a weapon skill, or even gravitas....

                        I have two of these at +10 powerstanced along with a Bloodhound Fang I switch to when I need to dodge or rapidly close/make distance. This sword hits like a truck and looks awesome when powerstancing. Also I am STR+INT build with 80 INT. The weapon art from this for me hits for 1.2k+ to everything around me and makes enemies fly off cliffs easily or at least get knocked on their back 5-10m away. I'm wearing very heavy armor (Tree Sentinel) so things basically never interrupt it so hyperarmor don't matter. Very good weapon.

                          I think this sword's scaling is bugged. The royal greatsword, at cdc scaling is beating the hell out of the Onyx greatsword at beb scaling. I'm at 40 strength, 20 dex, and 60 int. What is this

                          • Anonymous

                            Ngl I think this one is slept on for STR-INT builds or really just INT builds in general. The scaling isn't anything too sexy or anything but it has solid base damage and having a B scaling in INT makes it a pretty capable melee option for INT builds, especially in the mid game. Solid in PvP too, does nice damage and the curved greatswords in general are really useful for catching roll spammers. The weapon art gets clowned on a lot for lacking hyper armor, but it does really solid damage if you can get it to connect. The key is to stagger them with the initial part of the attack where the sword is thrusted into the ground. Or in PvP use it after hitting them with an R1 and they're expecting another R1... If they try to roll behind you you will catch them for massive damage, provided that you have a high INT level. It scales entirely off of weapon level and INT level. I suspect the people complaining about it doing like 200 damage are strength builds that invested the bare minimum INT to wield it. That's a pattern on this wiki in general though, many people invest the bare minimum INT/faith/arcane and then complain about the weapon arts that scale off of those, wondering why they don't do more damage lmao.

                              I don't see the scaling on this working as advertised. When I pump points into INT, the damage increases. If I highlight STR it doesn't show the weapon scales from it at all and if I put points into STR the damage doesn't increase. It seems like the weapon uses the bare requirements for STR/DEX and the actual scaling comes from INT.

                                I don't like the weapon art on this sword but it hits like a freakin' Mac truck. At 55 Strength, 55 Intelligence, and 55 Dex it has something like 850 AR or so. And if I were to divert the dex to Strength and intelligence? Crazy

                                  Why do I see this weapon as S-tier on a bunch of lists? Just curious, using it as a stepping stone to moonlight GS and it’s good but doesn’t feel crazy. Ash of war is slow and I can’t poise through most attacks with it

                                        Bro this **** slaps. Since I got it early game, I’ve progressively upgraded it throughout my play through and +9 I’m sitting steady at 689 per normal hit. Given the fact a portion of that is magic damage, you’re ready for almost any enemy/boss.

                                          I got this at +4 and it hits hard but no bleed and no infusions make it a hard choice vs a +5 Bloodhounds Fang.

                                            Boss notes: not only does this guy have 0 *****es, he also has 0 poise. My large club & spirit wolves left him little room to do absolutely anything in the fight.
