Weapons That Have Falling Bolt

Notes & Information

  • Both versions of Falling Bolt are completely different from eachother, despite the similar name. Dragonslayer's Swordspear's Falling Bolt causes a lightning bolt to crash down on foes, dealing massive damage and is also a weapon buff that lasts 35 seconds. Dragonslayer's Greataxe's Falling Bolt is an overhead smash that deals lightning damage and has incredibly high poise. It is a very deadly move and can often one shot phantoms; it can be parried, however.
  • Both versions of Falling Bolt are very effective in defeating the King of Storms very early, due to the boss' high weakness to lightning.
  • Dragonslayer Greataxe's version of Falling Bolt is reminiscent of the Dragon King Greataxe's strong attack.

      It can be parried! I just parried the WA from the greataxe wielded by an invader who turned up in the Cathedral. It totally threw him off, I bet he thought the poise and the fact it's a big weapon means nobody can parry him. Amazing. I'm usually crap at parrying, too. The riposte didn't finish him off but he didn't manage to avoid the roll catch as he went in the wrong direction, and then a quick R2 ended it. I hope he was panicking. I think I saw him try to throw a knife in a random direction just before my last swing, which seems to suggest he had the wrong item selected and was trying to heal. 10/10 thank you Fextra, would parry again

        Miracle or weapon skill only?05 Jul 2016 21:57  

        Is this also considered a miracle or just a weapon skill? Also, does the Ring of the First Born affect it?

          "appear from the ground"***FALLING*** BoltThe animation is also quite obviously showing it coming from the sky, and furthermore you can hit enemies that are a level above you.
