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.
  • Generally considered a heavier, more damaging claymore when used in the right hand due to a higher counter modifier and similar moveset.

        My only problem with this weapon is the int and fth requirements.

        I understand it being faithful to the DS1 version, but my lord, 20 in two stats it doesn’t even scale with?

        • It's a shame that this is the only weapon that benefits from a left hand, all other weapons seem to have lower damage if you use them in your left hand which is a little aggravating considering I'm a lefty. But it's a whole lot better than DS1 and DS3 where you can't realistically use the left hand for anything other than magic and shields.

            this is clearly a ABYSS Greatsword (Dark souls DLC) - just look for in youtube for move set for this Majestic sword & Abyss greatsword.

              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?

                Too much argue on left hand well i dont really care what handed he was but i use this sword on my left hand because of its unique strong attack

                • Anonymous

                  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?

                              In this video there is evidence of artorias being left handed. I hope it helps some of you with this.https://youtu.be/jcQCpJw7PtI

                                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
