Preacher's Right Arm is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3. It is part of The Ringed City DLC.

The dessicated right hand of a white-faced locust that rose from the abyssal swamp, that happens to perform as a catalyst for sorcery.

The white-faced locusts were meant to beckon men to the dark with sermons, but most of them are unable to think past their own stomachs, the unruly mob!

Skill: Feasting Branch
Use souls to weave a sharp branch to fillet prey. Can be used repeatedly.


Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused or Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
  • Has 229 spellbuff at 60 Intelligence.
  • Has slightly lower spellbuff than the Court Sorcerer's Staff and lacks Steady Chant. This makes it a bad choice for mages whose playstyle depends on these two things. It is more suited for battle mages however due to its Weapon Art.
  • Works well with Farron Flashsword for expanding its melee movesets.
  • The damage of the Weapon Art appears to scale with strength rather than intelligence.

Location/Where to Find

  • The Ringed City: From the Ringed City Streets bonfire head into the swamp and head straight. Head past a few Locust men and head to the right of the HUGE enemy in the middle. There will be a corpse hanging from a structure here. Be careful as it is surrounded by hidden Locust Men.

      Gotta hand it to FromSoft, this is one of the oddest items throughout ALL of their games and also comes with a stick!

        It would be amazing if you could grab players with these and bite them if you equip them in both arms.

          Is there any reason for this to not drop from locusts? Why wouldn't we rip their arms off. What is stopping us?

            I have discovered that with enough stamina and intelligence you can one shot any player. After this weapon, DS3 PvP was destroyed, or what was left of it anyways.

              Use this weapon, and exercise your right to bear arms. If you use it, you're armed pretty well, but be sure to keep your enemies at arm's length with it. You should use heavy arm-or with it as well.

                what if this was just both arms and they were int scaling paired hammers that couldn't cast spells but still do the weapon art?

                  How I think this went down: Miyazaki lifts his head from a Thai hookers ass covered in cocaine and screams "Severed arm of an insect PREACHER of the dark, stupid weapon art does MAGIC damage not DARK damage for reasons, usable as a CATALYST to cast SORCERY SPELLS and zero ability to perform MIRACLES or DARK spells because Preachers, outperforms a SORCERER'S CATALYST casting sorceries because Japan is best, zero scaling with FAITH that a PREACHER would actually have because the bugs haven't leveled up faith... MAKE IT HAPPEN! BANZAI!!!", then dives back into the cocaine. And nobody in the company has the heart to tell him it's a stupid idea because they've made so much money in spite of the stupid ideas he's already had...

                    If you wield 1 in each and the WA will alternate between left and right. Not sure if it does more damage but it looks funny

                      Weapon Art damage depends on Strenght, more than Intelligence. I don't think INT even matter for that matter.

                        When offhanding the Preacher's Arm, one can buff their mainhand weapon and the Skill will benefit from the Buff; Feasting Branch becomes really quite lethal. Only tested this with Crystal Magic Weapon, haven't checked whether it will apply Poison/Bleed as well.
