I have spent several hours in Lords of the Fallen, and thanks to that, I was able to beat the Lightreaper on the third encounter. The boss is a beast, and the weapon you get from its remembrance is just insane. Without any doubt, I consider the Lightreaper Sword to be the best in Lords of the Fallen. It has great DPS potential, along with great visual looks.

  • Deals a great amount of damage.
  • Has a secret art when dual-wielded at +5. 
  • Using only one sword isn’t that great.

2- Pieta’s Sword

Another great weapon on the list is Pieta’s Sword. First, I was having trouble selecting the best weapon between Lightreaper and Pieta’s Sword. However, I arguably picked the former after playing with both for a while. That being said, since the release, fans have been talking about the weapon continuously, making it the fan-favorite sword in-game.

  • Can inflict smite on enemies.
  • Has a secret art when dual-wielded with Eillane’s Sword. 
  • I don’t think there are any cons of Pieta’s Sword.

3- Bloody Glory

The Best Grand Sword.

Players who like strength weapons that deal different types of damage should definitely try Bloody Glory. Bloody Glory is a grand sword that deals with Physical and Holy Damage, and it has a massive 300 Bleed Build-Up. That is why I consider it the best Grand Sword in-game.

  • Deals Physical and Holy damage.
  • Has a bleed build-up of 300.
  • Can stagger opponents easily. 
  • The stat requirements of Bloody Glory t.

4- Ravager Gregory’s Sword

If you didn’t like the stat requirements for Bloody Glory, then I think you should try out Ravanger Gregory’s Sword. While the stat requirements are still high, as you would need 30 Strength and Radiance as compared to Bloody Glory, they are pretty low.

Ravager Gregory’s Sword deals with physical, holy, and wither damage, and it has a C scaling on both strength and radiance, which is pretty good. That is why I think it is the most balanced grand sword in Lords of the Fallen.

  • Has fewer stat requirements than Bloody Glory. 
  • Deals three different types of damage.
  • The stat requirements are still crazy.

5- Sword of Skin and Tooth

The Best Sword For Fire Damage.

If you are already in the Lower Calrath area, then you must get Sword of Skin and Tooth. I found the weapon during my playthrough and decided to give it a try. It is a purely Strength-based weapon. Sword of Skin and Tooth requires 36 Strength, which you might have already achieved by now.

The attack power of Sword of Skin and Tooth is great as it deals Fire and physical damage, and on top of that, it also has a 200 Burn Build-Up, which is insane. Due to that, I have given it the best sword to deal fire damage award.

  • Deals massive damage.
  • They can inflict burn and fire damage, respectively. 
  • Requires 36 Strength.

6- Bloodlust

The Best Short Sword For Mid Game.

When I was in the early game areas, I considered Bloodlust to be one the best weapons in Lords of the Fallen, but in later areas, I kind of didn’t like it that much. Bloodlust is arguably a great sword as it deals two different types of damage along with two different status effect build-ups.

That can help players win many battles in mid-game, making Bloodlust the best choice for the area.

  • It can inflict two different status effects. 
  • Doesn’t have crazy stat requirements. 
  • Not viable for late-game areas.

7- Justice

The Best Alternative For Pieta's Sword.

I kind of don’t like to rank the Justice Sword so low in my list, but there are just so many great weapons in Lords of the Fallen. Justice is an outstanding sword dealing with Holy and Physical Damage, with a 200 Smite Build-Up. That is why I consider it the best alternative for Pieta’s Sword.

  • Deals a great amount of damage and has a 200 Smite build-up.
  • Viable in late-game areas. 
  • You would need 34 Strength.

You would need 34 Strength and 20 Radiance in order to wield the weapon. Justice has C+ Scaling in Strength and E Scaling in Radiance, so if you want to increase the damage, your priority should be allocating more points in Strength. With that said, if you are not going to use Pieta’s Sword, then I think you should give Justice a try.

8- Rosamund’s Sword

The Best Balanced Long Sword.

Frostbite 150
Rosamund's-Sword

There are four particular stats and many weapons scales in accordance with any of them. However, Rosamund’s Sword scales with all four stats, so allocating points to all of them will result in more damage. Still, you should keep your expectations in check as the damage might not increase as much.

You would need 13 Strength, 13 Agility, 16 Radiance, and 16 Inferno in order to wield the weapon. Rosamund’s Sword deals physical and wither damage and has a 150 frostbite status effect build-up. That is enough to convince me to consider Rosamund’s Sword the best well-balanced long sword in-game.

  • Scales on all four stats.
  • Deals Wither and Physical damage.
  • The stat requirements are reasonable. 
  • Has a 150 frostbite build-up.
  • Not everyone would like allocating points in all 4 stats.

9- Bringer of Stillness Sword

The Best Sword To Dual Wield In Early Game.

Weight 5.7

You might remember the Black Death Reapers as they wield the Bringer of Stillness Sword. Both the right and left-hand swords can be farmed by killing them. You can also get the weapon after defeating a boss in the Sunless Skein. It is the best sword to dual-wield in the early game, but farming it can be troublesome.

  • Deals a great amount of damage.
  • Has a secret art when dual-wielded at +5. 
  • Using only one sword isn’t that great.

10- Resh-Mesah’s Sword

Best Grand Sword In Early Game.

Resh-Mesah’s Sword requires 25 Agility and 15 Strength and has some high base damage. While I didn’t use the sword for a long time, I did have a good experience with it. So, if you want to use a good damage-dealing weapon early on, I would recommend you get the Resh-Mesah’s Sword.

  • Deals a good amount of damage.
  • Can be found pretty early. 
  • Scales better with agility.
  • There are way better options.

Similar Swords To Go For

In Lords of the Fallen, players can use different kinds of swords for a unique gaming experience. However, these alternative sword options didn’t quite make it to my top 10 list for various reasons:

  • Judge Cleric’s Corrupted Sword: A powerful weapon, but it requires careful timing and positioning to use effectively compared to the other swords I’ve picked above
  • Melted Dark Crusader Sword: While it deals massive physical damage, it has extremely slow attack speed, making it vulnerable to nimble opponents.
  • Fallen Lord’s Sword: Offers a reliable moveset for both offensive and defensive play, yet lacks elemental effects or unique abilities compared to other swords I’ve selected previously.
  • Judge Cleric’s Radiant Sword: A defensive sword excelling in high Holy damage and effective stuns, though it demands skillful positioning to unleash its full potential.
  • Hallowed Praise: Its high Faith scaling and healing buff can be incredibly useful for support-oriented players, yet it requires specific builds to shine.

Which Sword Is The Best In Lords of the Fallen – My Take

I think Lightreaper Sword is the best sword in Lords of the Fallen as dual-wielding it is extremely broken.

If you don’t want to dual-wield a weapon, then I would recommend you not to use the Lightreaper Sword, as that way, it won’t deal much damage. Dual-wielding is the real fun, as by upgrading both weapons to +5, a new attack unlocks, which deals serious damage. Still, if you don’t want to dual-wield a sword, I recommend using Pieta’s Sowrd or any other one I have ranked in the guide. 

That is almost everything you would want to know about the best sword in Lords of the Fallen. While you are at it, you should also check out my guide on the Best Class in Lords of the Fallen.
