Astora Straight Sword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.


A well-crafted sword named after the ruined land.

Astora, before its fall, was a land replete with royal blood, and this weapon is both a reminder and heirloom of that era.

Skill: Stance
While in stance, use normal attack to break a foe's guard from below, and strong attack to slash upwards with a forward lunge.

Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • All weapons have motion values assigned to each attack, which are modifiers to AR that are associated with the attack being used.
    • The Astora Straight Sword has a motion value of 200 on backstab, 250 on riposte, and 60+225 on Hornet Ring riposte. The motion value of a backstab with a straight sword does not change with Hornet Ring.
  • The Astora Straight Sword has a range of 18sp on the 1h R1.
    • sp, or Shield Pokes, are a unit of measurable distance to determine the range of a weapon. Certain actions create different distances from a wall, allowing one to test the range of certain attacks. While this testing isn't 100% accurate, it is a very good indicator of the ranges of each attack.
  • The Astora Straight Sword has thrusting R2 attacks.
  • If the Faith requirement is not met, attacks will bounce off heavily-armored enemies and any blocking opponent in PvP. It will also have a greatly increased stamina cost.
  • The weapon used to be popular when infused raw for speedruns, however it got hit with a nerf and is typically outclassed by any other straightsword.



Location/Where to Find

  • Located in a chest on a platform in the High Wall of Lothric just above the room with 3 large undead and 2 dogs (where the Estus Shard and Cell Key are). Break a crate wall on the top floor walkway to expose a hidden rafter which leads to a drop down to a middle floor where the chest is located.

      I miss the days where this used to be my go to weapon. I still remember hitting 173 with R1 to enemies at High Wall when infused with raw.

        Honestly not a bad sword. Can get 400+ ar with hollow infusion, has stamina cost equal to the shortsword, and S tier in Fashion Souls.

          MG this ss sucks ass. Like seriously it's the worst all. I was about to assert my dominance with my pkcs but now I feel bad.

            Since no one seems to know, this is a quality str/lck weapon. At 40/40 str/lck it rivals Anri’s SS with the same stats and beats out a few others. The “problem” is it’s a QUALITY weapon but, not the kind people wanted, meaning everyone wanted it to scale with faith. The “good ol days” as they say. That being said, as quality weapons go it isn’t bad. It hard caps at 40/40 like others, has over 400 AR, has thrusts and works well as a raw weapon for pure faith builds. Making it a lightning infusion also makes it powerful on pure faith builds, on par with any other straight sword you could use on the same build more or less. As far as Anri’s goes, the only thing Anri’s SS does better is the innate heal and being a non-quality weapon. Ultimately it depends on what you want, quality weapon or pure scaling weapon. Saying Astora’s is bad is like saying the Black Knight weapons are bad because you can get more AR on a different build.

              Wow I’m surprised at the negative comments. This has been my primary weapon for my very first run and it’s worked wonders. I have it infused raw +10 currently and I use carthus flame arc I just beat champ. Gundyr and dragon slayer armor with it. Some bosses I had to switch to a different weapon, but overall I’m very satisfied.

                I dont know why people hate this weapon, it's a broadsword with thrusting R2 if you are not interested in scaling. And even if you are this weapon rarely needs an extra hit to kill an enemy comparee to other SS. It's also longer than a broadsword. And it doesnt even need scaling. This is a really good SS for invasions you dont need to scale it just get around 25 vigor and 25 vitality and you're good to go. It can also be buffed which means it has the means of dealing with nasty bosses weak to certain elements. Overall not too bad again it requires not stat investments.

                    I used it on my level one run and it worked really well with a raw infusion but becomes useless when you get to the dragon slayer armor because the attack bounce off since you don’t meet the faith requirements

                      Like it was in the first game, it's a crutch until mid game, then it become pretty worthless. You can go Faith and get it Blessed, or infuse it Raw. Trust me, ditch it when you the Boreal Valley.

                        If you picked a starting class that has 10 faith or more I highly recommend this weapon. Available early in the game and has damage comparable to the LKS and BS right out the chest. Infuse it with raw and this sword will carry you all the way to irthyll, although this shouldn't be your main weapon. The scaling on it are subpar and are outclasses by the other SS. Overall, a fantastic early game weapon, but a mediocre main weapon.

                            this thing is a straight sword that can be infused and buffed and deal more base damage than the wolf knight greatsword and the stormruler which are greatswords, and yet people underrate it so much, i wish i would see more people using this... damn

                              can anyone explain why i dont see anyone use this even though it has this massive damage and yet still can be buffed and infused??? i mean it probably has one of the biggest damage among all straight swords, and yet people just rather using lothric knight sword :/

                                Best when Hollow infused. At 60 luck and base requirements gets 1 point of AR difference from Anri's SS and can be buffed

                                  I lost it :( I was tryng to trade varius items with Picklepum and i falled down... And, of course, it disappeared. Is there no way to reobtain the sword in this playtroug? A box of lost stuff like in sekiro or a chest like in ds1? Anyway, sorry for my english guys. Im pissed off for this falling because I'm just started the playthroughand I'm still in the undead settlement. I' Hope that was not a invaluable weapon, because I have still to choose my build and I was to pondering a faith build.

                                    This use to be my favorite sword, so I wanted to see how viable it still is. For low SLs, it's slightly weaker in it's Raw form then the Longsword, however, it uses less Stamina per swing meaning it can deal more damage per Stamina bar. At +4, 20/20 is the breakpoint to get rid of Raw. Surprisingly, it does better with no Infusion then Heavy/Sharp/Refined. That stays true for the life of this sword. It's either Raw or no Infusion, everything else sucks. At 20/20 +4, it's only 5 AR behind Raw Longsword or Sharp Lothric. That's pretty much the breakpoint. If you're pumping STR, it's always a few AR behind the Long Sword. If you're pumping DEX, it falls behind the Lothric Sword quickly. If you want Raw or Quality, the Broadsword is the new top dog. But, if you're running a low stamina caster, it's still a great sidearm due to the low Stamina usage.

                                      You only get about 1-2 extra swings than the longsword, but with less stamina consumption, that little bit of stamina can save your life

                                        I really wish fromsoft had finally made a half decent astora straight sword, but no, i cant have my astora knight cosplay because miyazaki decided "lets just make this weapon objectively***** in every game". Like ffs, if it was just a longsword copy i would be happy. Even some form of half decent scaling with an infusion would make me happy. Thanks fromsoft
