Dancer's Enchanted Swords is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.

Paired enchanted swords that Pontiff Sulyvahn bestowed upon the Dancer of the Boreal Valley. These blades, symbollic of the Dancer's vows, are enchanted with dark magic in the right hand, and fire in the left, mirroring the Pontiff.

Skill: Dancer's Grace
Unleash the fury of both blaces in a dancing spin motion and use strong attack to continue the performance until stamina is exhausted. 

Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Buffed or Infused.
  • Reinforced with Titanite Scale
  • Although the weapon has universal D scaling, the Strength attribute is actually 30% less impactful towards AR. 
  • The right blade only deals the physical + magic damage parts and the left blade only the physical + fire damage parts. This also means the damage on the character screen is misleading, the actual damage per strike is only about 70% of what is on the character sheet. (Easily tested on slimes, dealt about 50 damage with the R1 attack and 260 damage with the L1 attack. Also the magic/fire clutch rings can be used for testing.)

      My favorite curved swords. It's graceful and swift attacks match up with my DEX build perfectly, and although it has damage on the slightly weak side, it makes up with speed.

            I want to make a battle mage utilizing these weapons. Besides Hidden body. What other spells should I use? I as think of chameleon and cold snap to obstruct other players view of me

            • Info about the scaling08 Oct 2016 18:37  

              After putting tons of different values in weapon AR simulator, and checking it in-game, I came to the conclusion that:<br/>-elemental damage scale with both str and dex as well as int and fth<br/>-dex gives you the best scaling, then int, then str, then fth<br/>-thus at 12/40/40/9, you get 204 phys, 205 magic and 210 fire damage<br/><br/>And, from my experience: use L1! (still need more duels to figure the rest)

              • The Dancer is Cyan from Dark Souls01 Oct 2016 12:14  

                The Dancer Swords are clearly the Tracer Swords from the Artorias pf the Abyss dlc, enchanted by Pontiff Sulyvahn with dark magic and the Profaned Flame, hence the dancer is more than likely Cyan. The tracer swords description even contain references to dancing.

                  • unexpectedly an amazing weapon25 Aug 2016 22:01  

                    I was quite surprised by how good this actually was since everyone was complaining how the damage was low but with a quality build and 12/12 int/faith to get carthus beacon this dishes out quite an amount of damage with all the multi hit damage buffs<br/>but it does have it's weak points you always want to two hand it because the fire blade has more damage and even though the initial L1 isn't that slow the follow-ups are a bit slow to come out and don't use the weapon art it seems to do less damage than a L1L1 unless you want to get a buff from pontiff right eye since it's a guaranteed 6 hit rather than 2

                    • Magic, not Dark?21 Jun 2016 07:12  

                      Anyone else kind of confused as to why this (and the Sword of Judgment, while we're at it) deal magic damage instead of dark damage? They get described as dark magic within their own descriptions, and are associated with a church that worships the dark. Add on to that the fact that it would make it perfectly balanced with the opposites of fire and dark... any reason for it to be magic instead?

                      • I just thought of something17 Jun 2016 17:39  

                        People have noticed how these swords look similar to Gold and Dark Silver Tracer, Ciaran's weapons of choice. <br/><br/>The Dancer isn't Ciaran, but I think I have an idea why they look like this. In Dark Souls, Ciaran's set says that the Lord's Blades is an organization that served Lord Gwyn by assassinating those who threatened the rule of the Gods.<br/><br/>So why were these swords given to the Dancer? I think they were intended to mimic Ciaran's weapons so the Dancer could be Sulyvahn's own version of a 'Lord's Blade'<br/><br/>Why? Maybe to equate himself to the old Gods of Anor Londo to 'prove' that he is the one worthy of being the Pontiff; or maybe in contrast to spite the image of the old Gods. <br/><br/>Feel free to comment below on your thoughts of this speculation :)

                          Turns out that the AR for this weapon +5 with 40/40/35 faith is, wait for it, 678. Beautiful number, but back to reality it is hard to reach that damage on pvp.
