You have to sent him scavenging to get new items. I'm not sure if he sells this sword after his first or second outing, though. And the handmaiden only sells whatever someone had available at the moment you killed them, if you bring her their ashes. Example: kill an NPC selling spells without having given them any tomes and she'll only sell the handful they had; kill that NPC after you had given them all the tomes and the handmaiden will sell their updated assortment. So don't kill NPC before you max out their inventories. Anyway, you don't actually have to kill Greirat, since you can buy it directly from him.

Kill the Dancer boss. you can trigger him early if you kill the old lady who gives you the covernant banner and then you can get it from the lothric knight in upper Castle.

It says I can buy it off maiden if i kill greirat and deliver his ashes? But when i started new playthrough i killed the first boss, then i rescued Greirat. Killed him, then delivered his ashes. But I cant buy it from her. I could buy it on the character i completed the game with, but not on this character probably being to early in the game. Does anyone know how this works?

Greirat doesn't sell the sword until after he goes away to loot Irithyll. I would presume you have to wait till after this event to give his ashes to the handmaiden.

blessed adds faith scaling to a weapons physical damage. it wont remove elemental damage that is on the weapon already. and the faith scaling added by blessed increases the lightning damage of the weapon as well making this a tremendously powerful blessed weapon (probably the highest AR in the game for blessed weapons)

because lightning adds faith scaling to ONLY the lightning damage. blessed adds faith scaling for the lightning AND the physical. so 40 faith buffs lightning and physical damage with a blessed weapon. a lightning infusion will have a higher AR for sure but only because it does more lightning damage and WAY less physical.

I wouldn't say that any UGS can be "overpowered," especially with the amount of effort you have to actively put into playing to make use of its moveset. You know, as opposed to something like an Estoc or a Dark Sword, with it's mass R1/RB spamming.

Add-on to the post above:...That is, of course, unless a weapon can effectively one shot a boss or -- more reasonably -- another player. /Then/ it'd be extremely OP.
