Caestus is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



A fistfighter's weapon made from thick straps of leather studded with iron rivets.

When two-handed, caesti are equipped in each hand.

Skill: Perseverance
Cross arms in front of the body to temporarily boost poise. Damage reduced while activated.

 

 

Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • An excellent parry tool when held in the left hand, for its parry frames are very fast.
  • If held in left hand can be dual-wielded by holding the two-hand button. This way one can activate the Perserverance skill then swap out of dual-wield and hit with the right hand weapon with the extra poise/damage reduction still active.
  • As it's the lighest infusable weapon, infusing it with Blessed or Simple provides regeneration with little consequence.

      Seems like the Caestus' parry frames are so different now...partial parries constantly and retarded stamina drain and extra damage taken. Don't see much of a point using this over the small shields for parry tools. Caestus is useful as a last resort as it has low weight and the weapon art is pretty good.

        I wrecked an invaders butthole with this last night. Perseverance and a good L1 combo made him sweat and made him chug... and ultimately got him pummeled. Even after he got an afc backstab on me.

            Parrying with this weapon just clearly doesn't make any sense against the bigger weapons like seriously you can parry an UGS rolling attack or running, when in truth it would break your hand and cost you your stamina and doing so in Gaming Reality, its such a stupid to get parried by especially since its just a piece of reinforced leather which honestly wouldn't protect you from a razor edged blade in general. This "thing" needs to be nerfed to where it can only parry smaller weapons or even majority of barely anything at all

            • 09 Nov 2016 02:54  

              I just noticed Refined versions of the Caestus are called "Skilled" (as opposed to simply "Refined"), which is pretty unique to me. What other weapons have non-standard infusion names?

              • Wowza26 Sep 2016 21:58  

                This weapon should be ILLEGAL. My god you just freaking wreck people with them. And the surprise parry is just mwah. 10/10 best weapon in any souls game if you know how to use them

                • Against skeletons23 Sep 2016 18:41  

                  Needed a strike weapon for the catacombs on my Dex char, tried out these...<br/><br/>It is so much fun to see the skeletons fly away from running l1<br/>After that you can just stun-lock punch the unliving ***** out of them!

                  • My knuckle punching character03 Aug 2016 16:37  

                    I love using this with my boxer character. Use this with Raw infusion (and any of the buffs). Go around shirtless and with the Deserter's Trouser (it's the closest I could get to a boxer!) lol Punching everything with the 2H form. Especially like using this with Carthus Rogue as it bleeds most enemies very quickly. Stat investment are mostly Vigor/End/Int/Fth/Luck. Vitality isn't even needed since I go around naked so equip load is below 30%.

                      I went to the sewer but there was nothing there, so I played through the game without it. However, on my new character I found them. Must have been a glitch.

                      • The parry16 Jul 2016 04:33  

                        Just a word of advice, after whiffing 6 parries in a row, stop, THEY WILL NOT do things that will be spam parried. You just look stupid with your rockng fist.

                        • Parry09 Jul 2016 19:22  

                          This is IMO the worst weapon to parry with. I've never successfully parried with this, especially against enemies whose attacks are very fast, like Lothric Knights.

                          • anyone tryna drop me this?14 Jun 2016 08:04  

                            i accidently deleted mine and i dont feel like going to ng to get another since im probly only going to pvp from now on (on the off chance someone wants to psn is Ramos4798 - message me)

                            • Broken parry10 Jun 2016 18:02  

                              Post whatever youtube "testing" you want, this **** is broken; I just faced a darksword/cestus "build" and he parried me by starting the animation after my attack had CONNECTED and done dmg, literally reaction parrying
