Bloodlust is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Katana of the old Mound-maker.

The Mound-maker piled sacrifices upon the altar, but became the final offering himself, leaving this katana as a gift for his dear family.

Skill: Bloodlust
Stain blade with one’s own blood to temporarily grant uncanny sharpness. For one driven by bloodlust, nothing deserves to remain standing.



Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused but can be Buffed by using the Weapon Art. 
  • Upgraded with Twinkling Titanite.

      So the weapon skill does damage? Apparently pulling it out your chest will allow it to do damage should the target be close enough.

        tbh I find the uchigatana a much better scaling bleed weapon, even late game. I've only had it break/go at risk once, and thats its only real downside. All the other katanas seem to fill more spefic roles, but this one is kind of just a worse version of uchi.

          Guys in the patch notes the AR bug was fixed. The AR buff will give the Bloodlust a heft AR% increase along with faster bleed buildup. It is more than viable, with high luck/vigor builds especially.

            Just want to say that this weapon is trash as of patch 1.15, tried it out for a bit with 40 dex 50 luck and could not bleed anyone to save my life, hitting people 6 or 7 times and no proc what a shame

              Tried Bloodlust +5 on the hollows in front of Firelink, 40 dex, 18 str, 7 luck (if it's any use).

              Sleeping hollows:
              unbuffed - 310 damage
              buffed - 433 damage

              Not sleeping hollows:
              unbuffed - 310 damage
              buffed - 433 damage

                Just found out if you wield the Bloodlust in your offhand then dual wield it and use the weapon art. When you go back to wielding both weapons they both will have the extra bleed effect applied.

                  To any farmer: farming would be faster if the host suicide (like with bloodlust) instead of waiting to be killed.

                    can confirm i gain 115 ar with the WA only when held in the offhand. the patchnotes only say it increased bleeding power it didnt say anything about removing the attack power so this is indeed a bug.

                      Why are people saying that the WA does not increase the AR anymore? I downloaded the patch and it did so like always.
                      I even went online with it.

                        As of patch 1.14, buff no longer increases weapons ar. Instead it causes more bleed build-up per hit. Tested on Fire Keeper with +0 Bloodlust (20 STR, 25 DEX ) on ng+++:
                        No buff: 4 r1s to bleed (very close to being 5 hits)
                        With buff: 3 r1s to bleed

                          How has this weapon been effected since the recent patches that effected bleed damage? Does the buff do less or more?

                                You CAN use the buff to gain an AR bonus on other weapons. Current Patch 1.10. On a Black Knight Greataxe+5 with 99 dex and str + sacred oath and deep pro, it has an AR of 1121.
                                I sometimes 2 shot in pvp with it.

                                  I want to know something, something that has bothered me for a long time. Was there an original Mound-Maker, and the covenant members are just his followers? Based off the description of the Bloodlust, THE old Mound-Maker used this weapon to add to his family (aka the Mound of Shackles). The phrasing and the fact that this is a covenant item makes me believe that there was. Because, I mean, SOMEONE had to start this covenant. Since this one doesn't follow a God, someone had to start this practice, or ideology. If you have any information, I'd really like to know. Thanks in advance.
