Washing Pole is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



A stunning, unusually long katana forged in an eastern land.

The extreme length of this blade provides immense range, but also renders the blade extremely fragile.

Skill: Hold
Assume a holding stance to rapidly execute a lunging slash with normal attack, or a deflective parry with strong attack.

 



Notes and Tips

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • It's the longest katana in the game but has the same swing speed and move set as all other katanas. This comes at the cost of higher stamina usage per swing.
  • With Sharp infusion this is the second highest damaging katana in the game for Dex builds after Chaos Blade. This is the best choice for Dex builds who rely heavily on weapon buffs since Chaos Blade cannot be buffed.
  • The best infusion is Hollow infusion with investments in str/dex/lck
  • It is based on the ceremonial sword ┼Źdachi. This may be why it is always extremely fragile in the Souls series.

      so many people complain about this weapon, I use it but I don't just spam sprint R1s the weapon is easily counterable, a good stability 100% phis protection shield counters sprint R1s easily and it's R1s don't combo so if you do get hit if you role back you shouldn't get hit by the 2nd attack, spears are another counter and if you can time it the blade has a decent wind up for attacks so parrying also works

      • 27 Nov 2016 18:00  

        i fought a guy using this and i had havels shield and the dragon tooth. all he did was running attacks for a while and thos did nothing then he jsut went for parrys after he relized spamming runing attacks was a poor descision. he hit me once because he hit me with the stances r1 instead of going for the parrys everytime. in short this thing is ***** verses a great shield

        • 09 Nov 2016 02:52  

          I've been running through PVE with a few Sully PvP rounds, using the washing pole as a secondary with my Brig. Twindaggers and has been working fairly well.

          • Makes you an asshole12 Aug 2016 19:45  

            This is a review of the weapon while I cry about it.<br/>Simply put, it's amazing. Very high damage, can buff that ***** to insane amounts, THE RANGE, pretty decent stamina cost, good speed, tops all other katanas. The downfall, nobody likes you...using this in pvp I will call in 8 phantoms to gank you and report you to the police fck the washing pole<br/>10/10 would ***** the washingpole again.

            • +4 Katana's11 Aug 2016 14:57  

              If you want low level PVP this weapon hits harder than Chaos blade +2 despite the S calling it gets on +2. <br/>Weird enough the Uchigatana hits slightly harder on +4 when infused with sharp ( it gets an B, while washing pole stays at C) and allows you to stay at 13 STR with more Dex points. <br/><br/>Its really a question if you prefer the long hitboxes over the slightly bit of power.. Good luck.

              • Sharp infusion10 Jul 2016 19:37  

                So on my Str 20 Dex 40 build, sharp infusion actually yields less AR than the normal version (380 vs 382). Did I do something wrong here?

                • Stronger than Chaos Blade15 Jun 2016 10:40  

                  The Washing Pole at 50 str and 40 dex has an AR of 424 at +10 while the Chaos Blade at +5 with the same stats only has 420 along with the Washing Pole infused with Carthus Rouge, making it almost as effective and Onikiri and Ubadachi infused with Carthus Rouge

                  • 9.5/10 best spear in the game28 May 2016 10:05  

                    This is the best spear in the game, it has the best charge attack with the sprint R1, and it's 1 handed R2 thrust has a long range and hits like a truck. This weapon fits really well with the Leo ring of course, as this weapon is a spear and all of its good attacks are thrusts. <br/>It is very rarely used as a slashing weapon, due to the slashes being kinda slow and not even worth it when compared to the thrust attacks. But that is kind of natural for a spear class weapon.<br/>I just wonder why it looks like a katana. I mean, aren't katanas supposed to be primarily slashing weapons?
