Greatswords are a weapon type in Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-ReckoningGreatswords are heavy two-handed swords for the Might Class builds, good at dealing a lot of damage and disrupting multiple enemies at a time.

 

Damage

  • Greatswords deal physical damage and piercing damage, with approximately a 85/15 split ratio favoring physical.
  • Although faster than Hammers, Greatswords are slower than any other melee weapon in the game.
  • By spending points on the Brutal Weaponry series of abilities, you will unlock more combat moves for the Greatsword.
  • Greatswords outdamage all other weapons in damage output per hit, excepto damage.

Abilities

Investing in the Brutal Weaponry will grant new attack moves for the Greatsword and investing in the Longsword Mastery will increase the damage delivered when using a Greatsword to attack. There are other indirect ways to improve damage output or add effects to the use of the Greatsword like for example the Blade Honing ability from the Finesse tree, that improves critical hits dealt with all bladed-type weapons.

Crafting

The Fateless One can use any Blacksmithing Forge, to craft Greatswords by using a Large Blade and a Hilt. A Grip and Bindings can also be used as additional components but it is not mandatory.

  • Guillotine: Performs two heavy overhead slams.(Requires Brutal Weaponry II)
  • Gravedigger: Performes a leaping ground attack.  (Requires Brutal Weaponry III)
