Zamor Curved Sword is a Curved Greatsword in Elden Ring. The Zamor Curved Sword scales primarily with Dexterity, with reduced scaling in Strength. It is a good Weapon for building Frostbite against enemies.

 

Weapon wielded by the knights of Zamor who earned great
renown during the War against the Giants.

In apparent devotion to winter, the curved blade is styled after an
icy wind and imbued with a powerful frost effect.

      It’s short, slow attacks, low damage, poor scaling, and heavier than it should be. Should’ve been a normal Curved Sword, tbh.

      • Anonymous

        Alright guys, sure, yes, the cute unique R1s are actually slower than R2s for some reason. And it's really, really short. It does have the second-lowest base damage of any CGS and relatively low scaling, yes (both STR and DEX are lower than bloodhound fang's). But let's not forget that it's also heavier than Morgott's.

        • Anonymous

          Pros: amazing design, flowing moveset, strong and cool skill, passive frost buildup.
          Cons: shortest in its class (not that much thanks to its moveset), aquired way too late in the game.
          Using this for the 1st time. Gotta say this HAD to be dropped by the zamor knight in weeping peninsula instead of the scarseal. Bloodhound's fang sadly eclipses this, because balancing in this game is not good. I still like this weapon a lot. 9/10

            wish i could get my hands on one earlier into the game. would have made a fine reward from the zamor evergaol in weeping peninsula

              Pro tip: If you're maxing this weapon's damage, do not go above 55 Dexterity. After 55 Dex, every point in Strength will yield higher AR.

                My favorite weapon.

                When I first picked this thing up I did not expect to enjoy it as much as I do, but here I am.
                It beats Miquella’s Knight Sword, CleanRot Spear, and Darkmoon Greatsword on my list of faves.
                Great in PVE and PVP.

                  Try this with the Snow Witch’s Robe for fashion souls. Not only does it look nice while performing the R1 chains, but it fits thematically with the AoW as well.

                    I'm pretty sure the Ash of War on this can deflect certain projectiles. I was using the weapon in PvP and when I used the Zamor Ice Storm, it seemed to deflect some fan daggers that were thrown at me.

                    • Anonymous

                      it's a little weird of a moveset to get used to but isn't too worse compared to the standard, same attack speed similar poise damage, less range but some steps to make up for it. Solid attacks that look cute and a massive frostbite inducing stance eating aow that ONLY COSTS 15 FP. Pretty good!

                      • Anonymous

                        I like the idea of long forward steps making up for the range, but currently that is only on the first and fourth r1, the rest of the attacks are just short without anything to make up for it.

                        • Anonymous

                          Can actually trick people quite well with the delayed R1s it naturally has. A lot of people roll early and right into your swing. In my opinion it won't fully make up for its mediocre range and you're just better off with a frost-infused dismounter if you only go for DPS, but this is a fun alternative nontheless, especially if you're looking for some variety

                          • Anonymous

                            Most of the people saying this weapon is bad are the type of people to say that moonveil is s-tier. This can easily do twice as much damage with the same amount of stat points, costs less fp, and causes almost instant frostbite. And no, the lower AR doesn’t validate hate for this because all of the best weapons in pve are the best because of their ash’s not their damage.

                            • Anonymous

                              the speed of the swings is equivalent to other curved great swords, you can check frame data. the significant forward step in light attacks equates to the reach of the dismounter as well. yes, it is the shortest for its class, but they designed the moveset that way intentionally. i have no idea what people are on about complaining about these things. furthermore the ash of war hits like a moving train.

                              • Anonymous

                                This is my favorite weapon in the game. I beat the game to ng+7 with this and only this. I don't play much multiplayer but for PVE this is an incredibly good weapon. The design is beautiful and the attack animations are really pretty, which I like a lot. The ash of war is where this weapon shines. the jump attacks alone shred poise and usually poise break most main story bosses within two to four heavy jumping attacks. the ice storm ash just shreds everything. it procs frost, shreds poise and also lowers your hitbox lower to the ground, as you crouch. I've found that you can actually dodge some piercing/swinging boss attacks like morgotts swings and nialls spear thrusts by using the ash of war in front of them, and while summoning the blizzard, you can actually dodge their attacks with the lowered hit box. Another tip I have is that the blizzard lasts longer than your animation, meaning you can attack while the blizzard is still dealing damage. I've seen a lot of players just afk inside the blizzard while its still going, instead of attacking. Even though it has short range, in my 300 hours on that character, I have never once died due to not being able to reach my enemy. To sum everything up, this weapon is actually really strong when used correctly and I think people ***** about it more than they should. Also it looks sick, just like the heroes who wield it. THE ZAMOR EMPIRE WILL RULE AGAIN <3

                                  Im fine with this sword having short range and slow speed, but the unique r1s dont go far enough to be useful over the other curved swords range advantage. I also think all the r1s should have gotten a longer leap, since you kinda just stand there swinging with low damage and slow speed after the first r1. It becomes especially bad when you compare it to bloodhounds fang, who easily gets 200 more damage with the same stats allocation to max the damage of this one, and then it also has more range, faster r1s, and a less situational skill.

                                    This thing is hard to use in PvP, having the lowest range and maybe even the lowest AR of the curved greatswords, it's definitely easier to pick up a Bloodhound's Fang or something and call it a day. However, this weapon is also so uncommon in PvP that half the players I fought in arena don't know what the ash of war does and just leap into my ice storm, both frosting them and eating half their healthbar. The R1's are not great even with the buff in attack speed, but it's better to powerstance with another cgs (I personally love using the Monk's Flameblade with Flame of Redmanes aow for a Fire/Ice themed Swordsman.) All in all, it was fun to use but good luck managing the range while spacing.

                                      I have but a 1 question.
                                      If Zamor knights were mortal enemies of fire giants, despise flame and worship winter,
                                      then how the ***** are their swords and armour are made of iron?
                                      Instead of ice, cold-worked copper or wood & flint for example.
                                      Fromsoft usually has a lot of attention to detail, so that's king of odd...

                                        The damage is good and the passive frost is a nice bonus, but its slower than a colossal for crying out loud

                                          A perfect off hand weapon. The roll catch potential in PvP and the defensive 360 swings in PvP make it a great weapon to pair with a longer reach weapon. I would highly recommend giving this a go

                                            I feel like this weapon got the short end of the warped axe treatment. I think originally this was meant to be either the heaviest curved sword or the lightest curved greatsword. It ended up in the later category, and not being infusible means that outside of the weapon art, this is the worst curved greatsword to use.

                                            Given its range and the graceful attacks, this would have made for an interesting weapon if it could be main handed when dual wielding curved swords.

                                              Horrible weapon with a godlike weapon art. I only keep it so that I can shake off agressive player groups in PvP. If you manage to land the entire thing in a small, confined area, that's most likely a guaranteed victory for you.

                                                All devs need to do at this point to make it viable is to buff it's ar, make it hit as fast as other curved greatswords with range buff or make it fastest in greatsword class...

                                                    It's certainly appealing design wise, and frostbite is very powerful, but a cold Omen Cleaver or Dismounter will be better overall. The ash is decent, but it's hard to make up for its unbelievably low AR and pathetic attack range. It's serviceable, as every weapon is; I'm sure even weathered straight sword and cane sword have their fans, but seriously, any success you find with this weapon comes down to frostbite (which is not at all exclusive) and your general aptitude for the game, which could translate to any other curved greatsword.

                                                      I've been rocking a light roll build with bloodhounds fang and it's been fine. I've been running through stuff with almost no issue. BHF is mad heavy though, 2.5 lbs heavier than this. And I can actually wear clothes with this so the drip unreal. For real tho, I haven't done a tone with it yet but it's basically impossible to get really any poise period on aight roll build without throwing an insane amount into stamina, but that AoW gives you insane hyperarmor. I've been whacked by one of the mounted spear knights in leyndell at the beginning of the move and didn't get knocked out of the animation, so this becomes veeeery handy for me, a tarnished with all the structural integrity of a wet napkin. It feels so much faster and smoother, not nearly as clunky. And no INT scaling for frost! I was so happy about that. I could keep my pure melee dex build and not mess with my Stat spread. Obviously the AR is lower, and I haven't done much testing against bosses, but so far this feels really good.

                                                      • This would be a 10/10 weapon if you became a helicopter when powerstancing. Still, nothing short of an amazing weapon. A cool alternative to frost builds without stinky blue. Has a learning curve but effective once you get used to the moveset. Frostbite buildup on the AoW that sends chills down your spine. Makes your head spin with how amazing it is. I might be straight but I would become curved if this weapon was anthropomorphic or something idk.

                                                          In my opinion, this is one of the most unique weapons in the game, given its design, moveset, frost buildup, and weapon art. I feel like I mostly hear people complain about the weapon, primarily its range and swing speed. Its damage is also a little low but the frost buildup could make up for that. The weapon art seems really good and frost buildup is always a nice benefit. So overall, is this really a lackluster weapon (mainly in PVE) or is it just that it's overshadowed by things like the bloodhound's fang and could afford to be improved with some slightly tweaking, but is still a fine endgame choice?

                                                            At the very least either the attack speed should be buffed so that it's faster than other curved swords, or the size of the weapon needs to be bigger

                                                            At least you can do a little spin. It's also got frost bite, which is pretty neat

It also breaks stances easily with just a couple R2s. Did I mention you get Hyper Armor during this?

                                                                Yeah this thing kicks ***. Use it.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      The main difference between them is range (Because Zamor Curved Sword is much shorter than other CGS's) and the area of the attacks (ZCS's attacks all go from your front to your right side, while regular CGS's slash to both sides)

                                                                      Outside of that, the Frost build up on this weapon is kind of tragic compared to a Frost infused CGS (Which will reach 127 build up at +25). However it's WA is pretty nice, does good damage and frost build up as well as having a nice area.

                                                                      However, it's R1's look really cool (If a little silly for fans of weapon based martial arts) and what's life without a little Elden Drip?. Sadly, powerstancing makes you lose the twirls and get generic CGS powerstance moveset, even if you use 2x Zamor blades...

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        I maxed this out and was loving it paired with a Monk's Flameblade for the fire-and-ice of it all, but having to 2H the flameblade to use Flame of the Redmanes for frost resets was a bit tedious, so I tried investing in Bloodhound's Fang for the first time after several hundred hours. At +9 it does more damage than my maxed Zamor. More reach, can buff it, still has a passive status buildup, faster R1s. Oof. So there are only two reasons to use Zamor: 1) poise casting Zamor Ice Storm and 2) twirling like a beautiful dancer, but with a bigger iron than Flowing Curved Sword.

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                If for dexterity or (if your insane) for quality the Bloodhound fang exists which has bleed and deals 100 if not more damage then this, while all other curved greatsword will deal more damage on physical infusions, sure one might say its for cold without need to invest in int, but freezing pots are better for these and small enemies would likely die before frost even procs, which only lefts out it's weapon skill Aoe...
                                                                                Overall cool looking weapon with interesting weapon skill, that get overshadowed by pretty much all other curved greatswords....

                                                                                • Anonymous

But like it said someone needs to test that it could just be a feeling because of the unique flowing style.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

Idk who in FromSoft was like " ye that size is about right" for a >curved greatsword< It looks more like the size of a cleaver than anything else.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            Seems to swing a hair faster two-handed versus one-handed. Not enough to compensate for its short reach and just a pinch too slow speed, however. Not a weapon that 'feels' comfortable.

                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                                Very unique weapon. Unique moveset, ice build up with no damage and a unique weapon art.

                                                                                                Some things to note
                                                                                                1)first swing with the weapon while standing still is kinda slow.
                                                                                                2) it's pretty short for a curved greatsword
                                                                                                3) the weapon gives you a decent amount of poise allowing to tank a hit from a shortsword or something.

                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                  Such an elegant weapon, fell in love with it as soon as I swung it the first time.
                                                                                                  One of the best designed weapons in terms of flavor imo, not just something you just swing like a brute like with every other CGS, its like a dance this time.

                                                                                                  Sadly, the low range and slow LAs limit this greatly.

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                                    • Anonymous

Faster enemies can constantly stagger you out of it if you don't have any poise, I'd give it a buff just for the first light attack, really tricky to use with it's low range. Otherwise one of the most (if not the most) unique weapons in the game.

                                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                                        Also the first attack in the heavy chain seems to be quicker than the first attack in the light chain :P

Just stick with the Bloodhound Fang or the Dismounter, honestly.
