      This is the weakest endgame greathammer. I compare it to greathammers because of the strike damage. Plus, it's a fuc king hammer. It does not do as much damage as it should given its high AR. At 707 AR it does 10% less per R1 than giant warrior club which only has 723 AR. It does about 2% less than the Dragon's Tooth at 649 AR. Quite a balancing issue given this weapons high weight and requirements. Perhaps in PvP this is offset by the damage to equipment. I wouldn't know, the servers have been offline for months. :(

        Why does the wiki say with 40/40 you get 632? This is an S scaling str weapon, who in their right mind is gonna be putting 40 points into Dex when it has an S scaling in str and E scaling in Dex lmao.

          Basically, if Vandrick really used this sword before he went hollow, our old king is using a figure of his wifu to beat enemies.

            Its a statue on a stick. And it does insane damage and poise damage. You can stunlock and 3 shot people no problem. The hard part is hitting people.

              The damage are massive so do the weight , when i use this thing in battle I have to use soldier ring or unequip some equipment to be able to fast roll

              • Infused with fire seemed to do more damage for some reason. If no counter damage involved has highest damage output but falls behind if involved due to low 110 while most ultra greatswords scale on 130.
                You can literally use it as shield has insane defense stats.

                  TFW you realize Dark Souls 2 is one big cautionary tale about the dangers of simping. Never let a woman lead you to ruin, kings!

                    If you break it (a la Santier's spear) you end up with a fairly brand new looking version of the sword he fights you with, and it seems to have about +5% souls gained bonus. Not sure on the scaling and stuff yet as I just now finished breaking it before having to go to work (where I'm posting this)

                      ,,or an affectionate exaltation"
                      so it's a simp

                        The weapon also deals bonus damage against armoured opponents, dealing insane damage against enemies like the pursuer, ruin sentinels etc.; not sure if it also works in PvP tho.

                          You know I made this sword and fully upgraded it during a strength build thinking I would get the sword Vendrick used during hos boss fight so I could replace my greatsword and stop cosplaying Guts only to get an ugly statue on a stick. It did save my ass when my sword broke during the boss at the end of the Frigid Outskirts so that’s a plus. Pulling that off made the fight much more epic.

                            That thing was too big to be called a sword. Too big, too thick, too heavy, and too rough, it was more like a large hunk of iron.

                            • Anonymous

                              Sure, it may be powerful, but it's so damn ugly! It looks like someone took a statue and glued a handle on to it

                                Kings Ultra Greatsword deals more damage than Fume Ultra Greatsword at +5. Damage is not most important in weapon selection but I'm positive that if Fume had 5% less reach or one of its strong attacks would be slightly worse this sword would made Fume Ultra Great Sword bad choice. The way it is Kings Ultra Greatsword is good alternative to Fume Ultra Great Sword. Amonmg Top 10 weapon's in the game.

                                  Scumlord Equipment Break Build is as follows. 1.) Weapons: King's Ultragreatsword, Greatbow w/ Destructive Arrows, and Bleed Flamberge or Katana/Dagger of your preference to keep an unpredictable mix of attacks w/ bleed effect. 2.) Armor: Either Jester's set or Ironclad set to nullify backstabs. 3.) Rings: Stone Ring, Ivory Warrior Ring, Ring of Thorns, and Ring of Giants (helps keep you from getting stunlocked so you can flee if necessary). 4.) Miscellaneous: Implement hexes such as Promised Walk of Peace, Dark Storm, and Lifedrain Patch; keep Acid Surge pyromancy handy. 5.) Attack Strategy: Be irksome AF by running around shooting destructive arrows and throwing corrosive urns. When enemy closes distance, wallop on them w/ ultragreatsword or other weapons to give them bleed. The hexes and pyromancies are to amplify proximity effect when they close distance, encouraging them to stay away so you can keep throwing urns/shooting arrows at them.

                                    I like this sword. I didnt think i would at first but after using awhile i got pretty good with it. One of my favorite weapons in ds2.

                                      the king's ultra greatsword deals strike damage, not slash/thrust damage. it's the only ugs that deals solely strike damage. should probably update this with that info

                                          This seems to be an ultra greatsword version of the demons greathammer so it swings faster so isn't this weapon just superior to the demons greathammer
