Avelyn is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



An extremely rare rapid-firing crossbow.  

Fires three successive bolts by means of an elaborate mechanism. Inflict heavy damage by making all three shots count.  

Despite its use as a weapon, this crossbow is also a priceless work of art, and it bears resemblance to a musical instrument. 

Skill: Tackle
Lunge into a shoulder tackle, pushing back enemies to create distance. 

 

Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Buffed or Infused.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • Is severly outclassed in terms of raw damage and range, beating beaten out by every Crossbow by 100+ AR and 10-20+ range. However, the Avelyn has the advantage of firing off 3 times in quick succession, making it very effective at close range and a nice quick and easy damage dealer
  • Individual shots of the burst are weak, however if all three shots land on the target it deals the most damage of any Crossbow with every ammo type. 

 

 

Location/Where to Find

  • Found in the Grand Archives. Climb the first shortcut ladder or pass through the very dark room where you can also find Power Within. Then go up the first flight of stairs and across the balcony with a broken railing at the end where a single Scholar is standing. Drop down onto the bookshelf below and then roll off these onto bookshelves even further below. (video location)

      at lower reinforcement (+1, +2 tops) the damage is very comparable to the other crossbows so it's pretty solid at that point. if you manage to hit 2-3 bolts consistently you can easily kill people, but that's hard unless you're free aiming explosive bolts or you're really good at punishing whiffs. whiff punishing + leo ring + heavy bolt is a killer combo at low sl, but it's so hard to land properly that most the time you're better off just using explosive and learn how to free aim

        Idk about anyone else but after playing with it I was pretty disappointed. Kinda sucks cause I actually really like this weapon in DS2 :(

          Splintering bolts is absurdly effective in this. Not only bleeds 90% of the time, it laughs on hyper armor with so many proyectiles. Stagger with the first r1 (my personal choice is the mace for high stagger or morion blade for when you re about to die and they get cocky), fire that burst and rollcatch if they dodge near you with another r1

            modern soldier build ... morion blade , red tearstone , blue tearstone , ring of steel protction +3 , keep health under 20% , VIG 50. END 25. VIT 40. STR 11. DEX 14... now you can have 260 max hp , 50+ physical absorbtion and high damage per bolts... don’t forget about wearing the fallen knight armor set for the camo... now hide in the bushes and fortnite snipe invaders with your legendary SCAR... fun garanteed , except against casters that non stop spam and make you die in one hit... but remember... you deal high physical damage and you are pretty resistant to physical damage... but always be careful and always prepare to dodge... never be cocky around any builds with this build

              This thing is pretty op at early levels when everyone's damage absorption is absolute garbage. You can cut an opponents health bar in half with one volley.

                Avelyn + exploding bolts = utimate counter to casters and spammers. Also not a lot of people expect you to quickly pull out a machine gun out of your pocket in the middle of a battle

                  Co-oped with a friend while using the Avelyn and my friend was using the repeating crossbow. And my God did it work wonders at repelling invaders. Just way too many arrows to deal with and on top of that the combined arrow volleys easily broke the poise of any players using small to mid shields.

                    It feels nerfed compared to the Dark Souls 2 incarnation. Infuse it with Raw and it's the closest thing you have to a machinegun.

                      Although I prefer the Arbalest when it comes to raw damage, this thing rocks in PVP. If you come across a chugger and you manage to bring them down to low health but not kill them, this thing will easily finish them off before they can get a sip.
