Greatsword of the black knights who wander
Lordran. Used to face chaos demons.
The large motion that puts the weight of the
body into the attack reflects the great size
of their adversaries long ago.
- Dropped by the (non-respawning) greatsword-wielding Black Knight atop the Undead Parish watchtower near the Altar of Sunlight, just past the Hellkite Dragon
|Black Knight Greatsword||220/0/0/0
Strong attacks are replaced by a powerful delayed upward slash. The two-handed attack will send the target flying if it successfully connects
- Two-handed light swings consume 60 stamina each
- Like all Black Knight weapons, it deals extra damage to demon enemies such as Taurus Demon and Capra Demon
- In the German version of the game, this sword has an completely different name. It's called "Schwert des Drachentöters", which would translate back to "Sword of the Dragon Slayer", whereas the normal Black Knight Sword is called "Schwarz-Ritter Großschwert", which would translate back to "Black Knight Greatsword". This is a pretty bad mixup, especially if you're collecting all rare weapons.
- In the French version of the game, this sword is called "Espadon tueur de dragons", which means "Dragon Killing Zweihänder" and adds to the confusion.
- In the Italian version of the game, this sword is called "Ammazzadraghi", which means "Dragon Slayer". This, along with the sword's German and French names mentioned above, likely references the massive "Dragonslayer" sword used by Guts, the main character of the manga Berserk.
- The Black Knight in the Undead Parish is not guaranteed to drop the sword. If you want to get it before the Kiln of the First Flame, then ignore the knight at first, and get the Covetous Gold Serpent Ring from Sen's Fortress, then leave (or continue on to Anor Londo to teleport between bonfires), go back to the Undead Parish, and have at least 10 soft Humanity with the ring equipped before killing the knight. This will increase your chances of getting a drop.
