    Elden Ring Greatswords-

    In Elden Ring, there are three different kinds of “greatswords” namely- the Colossal Sword, the Curved Sword and the Greatsword. As you might guess from their names and how they work, all of these swords give up mobility and speed in order to deal with huge amounts of damage to enemies. Since the game has a lot of weapons and a system for adjusting stats, these are the best greatswords and where to find them all over the Land Between of Elden Ring, depending on how you like to play.

    1. Starscourage Greatsword 

    Elden Ring's 10 Best Greatswords!

    Type: Colossal Sword

    Requirements: Strength 38, Dexterity 12, Intelligence 15

    Scaling: Strength D, Dexterity D, Intelligence E

    We are sure you will never forget seeing Starscourage Radahn use this weapon with both hands. Once you beat him, you will get an item called “Remembering the Starscourage” which you can trade Finger Reader Enia in the Roundtable Hold for this weapon. It has 129 Physical damage by default, a skill called “Starcaller Cry” that draws in enemies and when fully upgraded, it can also be scaled to B-grade in Strength. Definitely the best weapon for building Strength.

    2.Blasphemous Blade 

    Elden Ring's 10 Best Greatswords!

    Type: Greatsword

    Requirements: Strength 22, Dexterity 15, Faith 21

    Scaling: Strength D, Dexterity D, Faith D

    You can get it by trading Finger Reader Enia in the Roundtable Hold an item called “Remembrance of the Blasphemous” which is dropped by the final boss Rykard, Lord of Blasphemy in Mt. Gelmir. It has a unique attack called “Taker’s Flame” that is very powerful because of its long range, fire damage and ability to steal life. Blasphemous Blade is thought to be one of the best Greatsword and Faith weapons in the Elden Ring. This makes sense given where it can be found.

    Type: Greatsword

    Requirements: Strength 6, Dexterity 11, Intelligence 38

After giving Ranni the Dark Moon Ring, you can get this weapon below the Cathedral of Manus Celes. This is part of the long Ranni’s Questline.

You can get it in the Roundtable Hold by trading Elden’s Memory with Enia’s Finger Reader in the Elden Ring game, get the Elden Remembrance from the Elden Beast at the Elden Throne in Leyndell, the Royal Capital.

    Type: Greatsword

    Requirements: Strength 25, Dexterity 13, Faith 15

    Scaling: Strength C, Dexterity E, Faith D

    Even though it does not look much fancy, Ordovis’s Greatsword can do a lot of damage because it has a good guard that can stop damage.

    Type: Greatsword

    Requirements: Strength 18, Dexterity 10, Faith 22

    Scaling: Strength D, Dexterity E, Faith D

    The D-grade Faith scaling on this Greatsword makes it deal a lot of Holy damage and its long-range special attack is called the Corpse Wax Cutter. Its also thought to be one of the best Faith build weapons. After beating the Black Gargoyle/ Black Blade Kindred boss in the Forbidden Lands, you can get Gargoyle’s Blackblade.

    9.Greatsword 

    Elden Ring's 10 Best Greatswords!

    Type: Colossal Sword

    Requirements: Strength 31, Dexterity 12

    Scaling: Strength C, Dexterity E

    This weapon is for people who are making a Str build and want to cosplay as Berserk’s Guts. Find caravans near the Caelum Ruins area in Caelid to find this “heap of raw iron” Greatsword in Elden Ring. But word on the street is that there is a bug that makes this and other weapons that scaled with Strength/ Dexterity weaker when they were upgraded to +25. In light of this, be careful when you upgrade it.

    10.Marais Executioner’s Sword

    Type: Greatsword

    Requirements: Strength 24, Dexterity 14, Arcane 23

    Scaling: Strength C, Dexterity E, Arcane D

    Now, this sounds like a great Greatsword for you if you’re also putting points in Arcane. You can get it after beating Elemer of the Briar at The Shaded Castle in Altus Plateau. It comes with a cool-looking move called “Eochaid’s Dancing Blade” which lets you throw the sword at an enemy. Players have said that the Executioner Sword is broken and does not get any extra damage from scaling stats for now.
