Damage type(s) and Attack Speed influence combat. The attack style of the weapon in relation to the combat environment is also important. Consider both when choosing weapons to wield.


Boosts and Penalties are both considered "abilities" in general. Many items don't have any special abilities. See the Abilities page for details. Some enemies are immune to certain status conditions - see individual status pages for details.

The Gran Faust is a 5-star sword.


An upgraded Faust forged from pristine-quality shadow steel. Its charge attacks are powerful enough to curse its wielder, but that hasn't stopped Devilites from treasuring these rare blades even more highly than their meager vacation time.

Basic Attack

A two-strike attack similar to other "heavy" swords. The 2nd hit has a chance of inflicting curse on the target.

Charge Attack

The knight takes a small step back and takes a wide swing with the sword, which emits a Gran Faust-shaped energy beam which primes for a moment before flying forwards a fair distance before detonating. This beam travels through monsters and over gaps. The sword swing, beam and detonation all deal damage. The charge time compared to the Faust is significantly longer.

The Charge Attack has a chance to inflict Curse on both the enemy and the user. Self-curse will last 40 seconds without resistances.


The following damage values represent the weapon at its completed level, without any UV or bonus from other equipment, and listed as a range found from the first to last floor of each stratum.


This item has been available since release 2011-04-04 when the game officially launched.

It was the only 5-star shadow sword until Acheron was introduced with release 2011-04-27.
Its recipe was changed with release 2013-07-30.
Tier 3 phantom monsters used to wield this blade.[1] At some point their sword was changed to something resembling a magenta Cutter.

Gran Faust's speed bar is equal in length to Leviathan Blade's, while Divine Avenger's speed bar is equal in length to Troika's. In reality, Troika combos more slowly than Gran Faust and Divine Avenger do, and those swords combo more slowly than Leviathan Blade does. Furthermore, Gran Faust charges more slowly than does Divine Avenger. (See data.)

"Gran Faust" and "Faust" are named after the German Faust folktale, in which a man sells his soul to the devil for power and knowledge. The visual glow around this blade is similar to the Excalibur in Sonic and the Black Knight.

Despite its description, it actually does not use Shadow Steel in its crafting recipe.
