Majestic Greatsword is a weapon in Dark Souls 2.

 

An ancient greatsword of unknown origin.
This sword was passed down through generations, until it reached Gordin, wandering knight of Forossa, and was lost upon his death.

Uncannily, every last one of the prominent swordsmen who inherited this weapon was left-handed.

Acquired From

  • In a metal treasure chest at the bottom of a cursed tower, across the chain bridge before you go to the Foyer bonfire in Brume Tower (where you get invaded by Maldron the Assassin).

 

Hints and Tips:

  • Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite to +5.
  • Using a bonfire ascetic will NOT reset the chest.
  • A second sword can only be obtained trough trading or going into NG+.
  • Use this sword in your left hand to use the moveset of the Abyss Greatsword (Greatsword of Artorias) from Dark Souls, as well as gain a scaling bonus.
  • While using this sword in your right hand only gives a typical greatsword moveset.
  • One-handed L2 if wielded with Left hand: Spinning Sweep.
  • Two-handed R2 if wielded with Left hand: Jumping Overhead Slash.
  • Extremely easy to knock down opponents with these special attack
  • Recommended combo: forward L1 guardbreak -> L2 -> 2HR2
  • This sword has unique dual wield powerstance moves like Knight Artorias from Dark Souls: Jumping overhead slash.
  • Compatible with Ivory Straight Sword beam emission upon powerstance.
  • This weapon cannot be buffed by any resin or spell.
  • With 28 strength and dexterity, this weapon will have an AR of 441.

        This comment section is a good example of why people keep saying "dark souls fanbase is toxic". Chill out, no one is harming you by saying he was left/right/ambidextrous.

        We're no longer in middle school, right?

            Artorias is left handed. Yeah sometimes you an see him with sword in right hand but these scenes happened after his left hand was broken.

              I come to this page expecting info, and all I see is Artorias, Artorias, ARTORIAS. Can't we all deduct that Artorias actually has no hands, they are an illusion. He uses his mind powers to move his sword, DUH.

                What an awesome inclusion. I didn't even know this existed before seeing it on a PVPSkillz best weapons video. I have a Sir Artorias gamertag itching to make a playthrough.

                  who cares what hand he used his sword with, he just killed people, its like saying "do you write with your left or right hand?" its pointless, its the same result

                    you absolutely brainless ****ing mongoloids
                    he is left handed. you can tell because he wields his sword weird in his fight with you, where he is fighting right handed. not to mention his ****ing resting pose, sword on back, left hand in front of him, shows that his LEFT hand is broken. meaning he cant wield the greatsword correctly in his right
                    making him left handed you ****ing walnuts

                      So many dumbasses complaining if Artorias was left handed or not GUYS LITTERALY EVERY IMPORTANT DS CHARACTER WHO USES A SWORD IS LEFT HANDED! so why aren't you just believing that Artorias is Left handed just look at his fightstyle in DS1 its like a squire who've found a too big weapon to wield so if he wa right handed why does his fightstyle look so garbage?

                          Artorias is left handed there is cover art of him surrounded by the abyss, before getting mauled by the abyss. In the pic it shows him holding the sword in his left hand. Its kind of hard to tell if it is him, because the piv shows his back. But you can see the sword and greatshield silhouette clearly

                              Artorias was left handed much like the knight in Ds1 standard cover (which i always have presumed It was Artorias)

                                Artorias broke his left arm using every last ounce of his strength to protect Syf from the Abyss. I mean, you really don’t have to think about it all that much... In DS3 if you offer enough sword grass to the Wolfs of Farron covenant you will be rewarded his shield, that means that he did wield a shield. WITH HIS LEFT HAND!!!!! We all know his story and we all know how he fell to the darkness. He used every last bit of divine power in his shield, blessed by Gwyn himself, to protect his most beloved companion. Shattering his arm in the process. How else would you explain how that ring of golden sunlight, deep in the Abyss in DS1 was protecting Syf...

                                  Let me set the record straight for all of the people who do not believe artorias was left handed. Yes, there is no item description telling us that he was left handed, but we don't need that. The real thing that tells us he was left handed is the fact that it makes no sense for the arm with one of the best greatshields in the game on it to get mauled somehow. It would make far more sense for the sword to have been in the left arm, since the left arm would then be unguarded and able to be damaged. Fight me lmao

                                    Stat requirements for powerstance line up very well with Ruler's Sword. The L2 can be used as a parry counter, it can be parried itself but since its startup is so long they will whiff it if they're trying to read you and eat the full thing. Then you can switch out of powerstance and do the normal L2 on their wakeup to catch the roll if you time it right.
