Hints and Tips:
  • This is one of the cursed weapons that can inflict damage against Ghosts.
  • In the Giant Blacksmith's menu, the sword is simply called "Greatsword of Artorias" with no mention of being cursed. The stats are 24/18/18/18, compared to 24/18/20/20 for the uncursed version (Greatsword of Artorias) that is made from different either of the broken swords. Once you make the cursed sword and view the description, you'll see that it's cursed and can damage Ghosts.
