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.



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.

      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

            For people who wonder if this sword shine anywhere or if it's just worse version of others straight swords. Astora sword not good as raw infused weapon anymore, but it's one of the best choises if you go poison\bleed infusion. Here some tests. (BL=bleed, PO=poison) +10 upgrade, 60 luck, 12 str, 11 dex short sword BL 76 PO 85 AR 180 longsword BL 74 PO 83 AR 198 broadsowrd BL 74 PO 83 AR 210 astora sword BL 81 PO 91 AR 217 barbed sword BL 82 PO 42/80 AR 197 lothric sword BL 77 PO 86 dark sword BL 74 PO 83 So, if you're playing luck build and want some bleed/poison straight sword, barbed sword and astora sword are the best ones. (barbed sword deals more damage with bleed, but has less range, more stamina consumption and 20 less AR)

              This used to be my girl for spellcasting builds: hit like a modest truck with Raw infusion, carried me though battles where melee was unavoidable. But they done hurt my baby. They hurt her so bad.

                after the nerf it got it's literally a useless weapon, no need for pick it up, not even at low soul level since you need to invest on faith and a long sword doesn't need that, it has actual scaling and it's is basically 10 times better.

                  so i deal 230+ less damage than a lothric knight straight sword with a dark infusion, a bit less of range compared to the lothric sword and a terrible scaling for a few swings? seems legit. this weapon is barely good for a few places and then you should delete it from your inventory after sl 35 tbh.

                    So this just seems like a less spicy version of Anri's sword that does a bit more base damage. Any truth to that or..?

                      Why would I bother infusing this with ANY gem? At +8 regular it's at 232 + 82 for me... that's 314 attack. That's MORE then the +10 RAW at 301 total... Went back to the shrine and checked the blacksmith, Refined +8 is 208 + 100 (308), Raw +8 is 270, Crystal +8 is 335 total, Simple +8 is 307 total... everything's lower. Top that off, my +8 regular with 314 attack jump to 389 when I use Magic Weapon on it (buffing it with more attack). Wouldn't be able to use Magic weapon if I infused it, meaning crystal version's weaker... simple would regen some FP but it's even weaker then crystal. I infused some other weapons making them better, like my Heavy Spiked Mace... why is it any infusion on THIS sword just sucks? lol Or am I missing something?

                        Maybe it doesn't matter to the people who say it is trash but it consumes less stamina than the lothric knight , depending what you're fighting extra swings are important.

                          +10 raw, only the stats to wield (so start herald) all stats go to massives hp, good fp, stam, and a little equip load to go with my +3havel, +3rofap, +3 steel protection and prisoners chain, and then I spank you in the Spears of the Church with my raw A.S.S., miracles to heal B^)

                            Funny how this has a (relatively high) Faith requirement but the Astora Greatsword doesn't have any. Oh well, I guess FROM is like matters of faith: involving logic with them will only result in frustration.

                              Only if you hollow, is inferior only to Anri's, because Anri's work with carthus rouge, the damage i'ts pretty the same, that is superior than any straight sword

                                Makes a nice backup weapon on my herald for those fast enemies who slip between my lothric spear pokes. And it's pretty, too.

                                    this weapon isn't so bad... i mean it was nerfed quite a bit, but it has its merits. It is almost like a shortsword in terms of damage and stamina consumption, but has the range of a longsword. This thing might also have a slightly higher-then-normal requirement to use, but it is still cheaper to wield then the lothric straight sword. So if you wanna use astora straight sword because it looks cool, then try to remember the benefits it still does have as well.
