Hints and Tips:

  • Reinforced with Petrified Dragon Bone to +5.
  • Uses the Greataxe moveset.
  • By default it deals Dark damage, it can also be infused with Darknight Stone and buffed with Dark Weapon, best for hexers with high Strength, Intelligence and Faith.
  • Once infused with Dark, it deals an obscene amount of Dark damage provided if you have 65 intelligence + Faith above, a perfect melee weapon for hexers.
  • At 45 str/dex, 45 int, and 63 faith, while infused with Dark and wearing Ring of Blades +2 and Dark Clutch Ring, it has an astounding AR of 870 (266+65 Phys damage, 218+320 Dark damage). With Dark Weapon applied that brings the weapons total AR to 1067.
  • It receives S scaling on Dark if infused with Dark.
  • Two-handed strong attack can knock down enemies, like the Murakumo.
  • Wielded by Grave Warden Agdayne when he's summoned or aggroed.
  • It bears resemblance to the Dragonslayer, a giant two-handed sword wielded by Guts, from Berserk (anime/manga).

          Just so the wiki is aware, in Sotfs it goes to S scaling in Dark even if its enchanted with fire, lightning, magic, or poison. Best dark increase with dark infusion of course. I also have over 800 AR at 43 Strength and 50 intelligence and faith with the ring of blades+1

            "At 45 str/dex, 45 int, and 63 faith, while infused with Dark and wearing Ring of Blades +2 and Dark Clutch Ring, it has an astounding AR of 870 (266+65 Phys damage, 218+320 Dark damage). With Dark Weapon applied that brings the weapons total AR to 1067." Does this mean 45 in strength and 45 in dexterity, or 45 in str/dex COMBINED?

              In order to get the crypt blacksword, you have to kill the rotten in NG+ or higher. upon defeat of the rotten, you'll gain the rottens original soul drop plus an additional soul called the "Old Dead One" To get the Sword Bring the new soul to weapon smith ornifax, there you can trade soul for sword. Easiest way to do this is to use a bonfire ascetic That way you dont have to wait till your second play through to gain it...,,,.,.,.,.,.,.,.,.,.,.,.,.,.,> I hope this tid bit has helped in one way or another.
