Greatsword is a Colossal Sword that scale primarily with strength and dexterity. what i like the most about this weapon is the chunkiness and Good Guard boosting in it, combine with Lion’s Claw ash of war, i can perform devastating leaping attack to break enemy stance make this weapon one of my favourite weapon for strength build in the game.
