Great Club is the best strength weapon in the game for multiple reasons. To begin with, you get it quite early in the game. You can also infuse, buff, and reinforce it. So once you get it you have plenty of time to get used to it and collect resources to upgrade it. It only scales with Strength and has a C scaling for it. Here are its stats:

  • Physical Attack damage: 152
  • Critical damage: 100
  • Weight: 12


In order to wield it properly, you need 28 Strength.

It has the skill Warcry. Using this skill allows you to stun any nearby enemies and also gives you a boost to your physical damage. The best part is even when you run out of FP you can use it to use special charge and heavy attacks.

Location: You can get this weapon at Farron Keep. Defeat the enemy that carries it around. The best way to do it is to run past them and use the ladder. They will chase to attack you only to fall to their demise. You can then leisurely collect it.
