Caestus is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



A fistfighter's weapon made from thick straps of leather studded with iron rivets.

When two-handed, caesti are equipped in each hand.

Skill: Perseverance
Cross arms in front of the body to temporarily boost poise. Damage reduced while activated.

 

 

Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • An excellent parry tool when held in the left hand, for its parry frames are very fast.
  • If held in left hand can be dual-wielded by holding the two-hand button. This way one can activate the Perserverance skill then swap out of dual-wield and hit with the right hand weapon with the extra poise/damage reduction still active.
  • As it's the lighest infusable weapon, infusing it with Blessed or Simple provides regeneration with little consequence. 
  • When two-handed, L1 attacks will not be deflected by shields, enabling a player to break an enemy's guard quickly. Two-handed R1 attacks will be deflected.

      I'm gonna use these babies in PVP on Christmas... Why? because, that's the best day of the year for Holiday Punch! ..... I won't let the door hit me on the way out.

        I've never used these before today, ignorantly thinking they'd be an underwhelming choice. I couldn't have been more wrong. This has already become the most fun play through I've had of this game, yet!

          The only weapon other than the Stormruler and Dark Hand that every starting class can onehand without any stat investment.

            Litterally the most ignored weapon in my entire run until i realised how *****ing nuts it was. At +10, infuesed with dark, at 50 int 50 faith and 35 strengh I get 482 AR. It's AR is infact higher than sellsword twinblades (Infused and at the same stats), while being a 11th of it's weight and taking half the ammount of stamina per attack they do. I used this on NG+2 dancer, keeping the WA up at all times, and creamed her in 1 to 2 minutes.

              yes it is a parrying tool, but even in left hand you can still hit with it, which can be useful if using a heavy weapon one handed and the opponent spam rolls

                In "Max" spreadsheet it says Raw has 262AR, which is not *****ing bad considering stats required. But in Raw table it's only 200 for +10. Which one is true?

                  The Caestus is sort of a trade-off. The Caestus has the shortest wind-up time before parry frames start (virtually instantly), which makes it very good for reaction parries. It's also very light, can be infused, uses very little stamina, and doubles as a weapon (if you like a nice match of fisticuffs).
                  The downfall is if you get a partial with the Caestus, you completely run out of stamina and you're effectively in for another hit. It's kind of a "high risk, high reward" thing.

                    How to properly use the Caestus:
                    1. Equip the weapon
                    2. Have a horrible internet connection
                    3. Spam L1, while the opponent takes no damage

                        Dunno why from decided to nerf fist weapons and not the buckler/target shield, the shields have same startup frames and longer parry frames. Meanwhile, partial parrying with fist weapon drains entire stamina bar. I guess unless you're hardcore minmaxing or you need the WA then parrying shield is superior choice. From y u do dis
