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 blades 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.)

      I get like 617 AR with my pyro build at SL140. 25 int and faith, 18 strength and 40 dex. The damage is insane with the right build, they are just hard to use. + they are very short

        This is how you buff the Dancer's Enchanted Swords:

        Step 1.) You consume the Soul of the Dancer
        Step 2.) You get 2 Scimitars. One in the right hand and the other in the left hand.
        Step 3.) Infuse the right hand Scimitar with Crystal and the left hand Scimitar with Chaos.
        Step 4.) Allocate your stats the same way IF you were to use the Dancer's Enchanted Swords.
        Step 5.) Now go have fun with using a weapon setup that is unique and NOT total*****.

          I would have been okay with the low damage if they made a more unique moveset for the weapon. Hell, just copy some of the Dancer's attacks (thinking of the double uppercut for 2HR2 and thrust attack on 1HR2) and this weapon would be awesome and really fun to use.

            Question: So it says left does physical/fire and right does magic/fire, does that mean that on each attack the damage will only be split 2 ways rather than 3?

              At 99/99/99/99 this swords have 862 AR, the highest non-Infused weapon without buffs at that level, not really practical but fun fact.

                  dancer's enchanted swords really needs a buff I beat the dancer at level 20 by killing the old lady to fight it instantly. Under leveled, deprived, with no good gear in hopes to create at dual wield character, 50 death later with beating this monster. To have it transposed. To find out that un-upgraded a LT < 10 less damage that a fire bomb doing 94 to a monster. Fire bomb (>90 Damage) > Dancer's Enchanted Swords (<85 Damage) please Buff

                    40/40/12/12 STR/DEX/INT/FTH gives me 635 AR (split of course) Add Carthus Beacon, Old Wolf Curved Sword, and the Pontiff knight eye ring. Result: HOLY ***** 1000 DAMAGE A COMBO

                      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.

                            elegant weapons, at a high level with all your stats close to 60 you can cut up any player in 4 left bumper complete hits.

                              Why use slimes to test damage? I know they are easy prey with how slow they are, but certain defensive stats of theirs are off the charts.

                                  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 scaling09 Oct 2016 00:37  

                                    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 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.
