Carthus Curved Sword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Curved sword of Carthus swordsmen.

This weapon's thick, heavy blade is crafted to cause bleeding, and requires ample strength and dexterity to wield effectively, suggesting that the swordsmen of Carthus were amongst the mightiest.

Skill: Spin Slash
Slice into foes with a large spinning motion, and continue spinning to transition into strong attack.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Buffed and Infused
  • Reinforced with Titanite
  • Has a larger range than most other Curved Swords except for Storm Curved Sword and Pontiff Knight Curved Sword
  • Uses slightly more stamina per swing than most other Curved Swords. Most noticeable when two-handing.



 

Location/Where to Find

  • Dropped by Skeletons using them in Catacombs of Carthus.
  • Easily farmed by taking the Catacombs of Carthus bonfire. Go straight and wait for the skeleton ball to go by, go right towards where the ball came from then quickly left. There are 2 skeletons that spawn here with the sword.

      Would this thing be any good on a strength build? I want to make a strength build that uses an offhand ultra but I don't want to just put yet another LKSS on my right hand. I've always wanted to try out curved swords (and their fast swings would probably compliment the slow but hyperarmored swings of a Fume UGS) but I don't have any dedicated dex builds to use them on

        Although it got nerfed, it's still great for INT/DEX build. Lightning infused with 36 DEX/ 40 INT puts out around 430 AR after using Deep Protection. This and Sharp Saint Bident are my main weapons on this build. One is good with buffs, and this one is amazing with infusion. Good damage, nice reach, lit moves and amazing weapon art. Melts through most PvE bosses, excluding Nameless and Dragonslayer Armour. Definitely still good even after the nerf

          Didn't know this got nerfed. Does that mean I can allow myself to no longer feel bad about using Storm Curved Sword?

            Why is there no mention on the page about the nerf? It was all people talked about for months. This went from a weapon that everyone was using to a weapon no one would ever use again in the course of 24 hours. Like I understand both sides, but the update that nerfed this sword basically patched it out of existence. A good balance was never found I guess.

              Where to start. Less range nerfed to less than a scimitar... Stamina use nerfed so a swing uses as much a greatsword, damage nerfed below comparable weapons. Weapon swing speed nerfed so all flip curved swords completely outclass kick ones. Why can't Fromsoft nerf things without going off the cliff with it?

                Still good for chaos and dark builds due to the CCAA scaling at +10. Otherwise it has now been surpassed by other weapons due to the nerfing. Only time I ever see it used in PvP now is for dark builds.

                  I don't understand why this weapon, and several like it got nerfed. IMO it would have been a better move to just up the stat requirements instead of gutting the weapon. Isn't that what happened to the dragonslayer axe? I totally understand if the weapon is way OPed, but I feel like it would be much better if they did it that way. Like the FB, you create your build around the weapon itself. Maybe i'm just swore I never got to use this weapon before it got nerfed, I really don't see anyone using it in PvP anymore. Aside from dark builds because of the scaling, that's one cool think I guess.

                    It's definitely balanced for pvp. Incredible pve as well, seriously, it can and will melt bosses like oceiros or gravetender. Unfortunately, nobody looks for a balanced weapon for PvP, and i must say it's kind of comparable to a LKSS in terms of reliability. Take that as you will, it's definitely good, but not EZmode

                      These twerps whining about their OP meta weapon getting balanced. Folks, the damage got nerfed to balance its reach, which is awesome, and its speed, which is only slight less awesome. It was indeed too powerful before when it had top-of-class damage at a modest weight *and* great reach *and* bleed proc *and* fast attack animations *and* one of the best running-atacks in the game *and* an unparryable weapon-art. You can whine about straight-swords now, but never at any point have straight-swords had that quite that many things going for them. Carthus Curved Sword was cancer. Now it's not. Get over yourselves.

                        If there would be a mod to undo any nerfs while keeping the buffs.....i would gladly take a ban. It makes no sense that even a scimitar is more powerfull than this now. Its not just this wespon. I guess fashion souls applys to weapons as well. Besides, the sharp gem turns anything into insanity anyway so......still a very decent weapon. Not as OP as the two twinblades, but that might actually be a good thing.

                          RIP the legend, it has been 2 years and in a game now dominated by 1 handed straight sword r1's and rampant unpunishable rolling, your unique attributes have been sorely missed.

                            I think the sharp scaling got changed. Sharp at +0 raises the dex scaling to a B right from the start now.

                              This used to be a good weapon before getting nerfed, it wasn't really op at all. then a bunch of idiots who couldn't handle it in pvp had to complain to From Software about it and get it nerfed. Twice. After all the time and effort I've put into getting and upgrading it, it just isn't that good anymore. It doesn't even matter if it's just gonna be used for pve, the stat reduction still applies. I really feel I've ripped off of both money and time. So what I'm going to do is 'nerf' From Software. I won't be paying any money for any future From Software game I'm going to get (if From is going to make anything worth getting from this point onward.) That way at least, I can prevent getting ripped off money.

                                The only reason this thing was ever good was because it was always used with quality hollow builds with 40 str and dex and 35 luck with it having a hollow infusion then apply carthus rouge and you'll get amazing damage and pull high amounts of bleed damage off too and I see why it was good but did bleed really need to get the need that it did cause at 40 luck with a blood infused carthus curved great sword had 99 bleed which is amazing but because if the need it's not even viable in pve
