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.

      I use one on my dark build and win fights fairly easily. It's still a curved sword, after all. Sure the follower saber is probably overall better, but only slightly, and Carthus looks much better two handed.

        "oh no its not op anymore, we gonna cry ;( but f ck pkcs tho". You all crybabies, this sword is still very good, its just not good enough for a simpleton to win every fight.

            Incredibly powerful infused with Bleed at 40 LUCK. Managed to kill Crystal Sage at Grand Archives before he could even teleport for the first time on NG+. Bleed happened 3 times, taking 45% of his total HP and an additional 600 HP from the 3 times bleed was inflicted. That's not even counting the raw physical damage.

            • Anonymous

              I dunno if this is a dumb idea, but... poison infusion and high luck; is that any good? The bleed seems to stay the same, and when poison infused, it looks to be as powerful as the bleed would have been on blood infusion. Probably would wreck stuff, but I don't know.

              • Anonymous

                It's not a greatsword, but it's still sheathed on the back. Any other straight-swords and curved-swords that do this?

                      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

                      • Anonymous

                        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?

                          • Anonymous

                            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.

                            • Anonymous

                              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.

                                            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

                                                    The look on the weapon, if you look closely, has a similar look on those weapons that uses Damascus steel/wootz steel as a base.

                                                      This weapon isn't even that good anymore, but people continue to call it cancer and so on because they keep clinging to the past.

                                                        "Easily farmed"? I spent *three hours* in the Catacombs with the SoA, SoW and CGS+3 and even got *four* Sharp Gems, but no sword! You sure this is an easy to farm sword, or is my luck just bad?

                                                          i want to have this as my main bleed source... does infusing it with bleed have any advantages? according to the table it has 8-10 more bleed damage than the other infusions.. or is it better to infuse it with something like sharp/heavy/refined depending on your class?? is the 10 more bleed that important?

                                                            I really want to use this weapon in pvp as it looks cool as heck, but I'm afraid of getting a point down just for using the weapon ;-;

                                                              I know this is the meta cancer but the game tells you to use this. :D I was farming for a carthus shotel. I killed the shotel wielding guys at catacombs a hundred times over. No drop. I was frustrated. I went up. Killed the first guy on my way and he dropped CCS. And later when I was going back to shrine to upgrade carthus shotel (it dropped eventually), on the loading screen it was showing the CCS. What are you trying to tell me Fromsoft?

                                                                I don't really read forums or know any metas I just found this on my pyro an for it fit the build perfectly .

                                                                ANYONE saying it's for tryhards got btfo by a noob like me

                                                                • I'm glad this thing's out of style, because it's still good but most of all...I've always thought it was one of the coolest looking weapons in the game. I love its look.

                                                                  I've never considered this thing as op as many thought even pre-nerf. It's very powerful don't get me wrong, and in PvE it can handle pretty much any situation (which I like about it), but in PvP that two handed R1 isn't gonna get you Dark Souls 1 DMB Falchion esque results.

                                                                  It's just a good, solid weapon that I think god a bad wrap because its easy to use and everyone used it for a while, but there's nothing really all THAT op about it.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          1) The poors (no DLC,still butthurt as *****,tryhards ecc...)
                                                                          2) The hypsters (Because follower's sabre is too mainstream for them and oh well I like challanges)
                                                                          I think that exist peoples who use others weapons except this two,hope one day I could find them.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                              Curved Sword of Carthus Tryhards,

                                                                              Dropped by Spooky scary Skeletons using them in Catacombs of Tryhards.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                i tested this sword with bleed build in NG++, 40 luck, 40 dex, 40 str and 99hollow for max damage. buffed with carthus rouge. it is good against some bosses, deals great damage but i found other builds more better and easyer for pve. down side is that some enemies like stray demon and giants aren't so vulnerable for bleed effect that taking those down is pain. this weapon is fast and do nice damage in pvp so this is suited best for pvp

                                                                                • So I respecced into a 40/40 int/faith pyro build and made both this and the follower's sabre chaos, and the Follower's now outdamages the Carthus in terms of AR somehow which is really bizarre. Oh From Soft..

                                                                                  • I'm gonna be honest, I think this sword is massively overrated.

                                                                                    I mean, yes I said months back that it was the perfect curved sword, and barring the new Follower Sabre's fancy new gimmick Weapon Art...it still is; and yes while buffed this sword makes some of the PvE game look easy, but if people calm down and take a closer look at it they'll see it's not THAT bad. Yes, it brings insane damage down to pressing R1 repeatedly, but it's not like it's the only weapon or build in the game that's capable of making the PvE look like a joke. And when it comes to PvP, it's quite strong but I've been finding it much easier to deal with than some weapons that have full stunlock combos, far better range, and more versatility. This swords' strength, its ease, is also its weakness. Other than maybe timing and footwork, there's not much more to this weapon. Even its fast two handed R1 can be escaped.

                                                                                    It's a very strong sword but I really feel like people make too much of a fuss over it. The Falchion in Dark Souls 1 stunlocked you with its R1, it has absolutely nothing on that. It's good all around and I don't blame anyone for using it, but it's also a pretty limited weapon that never really goes all the way in any particular way, whether it'd be as a combo weapon, a bleed weapon, or a weapon that maximizes a buff, when one takes a closer look at it.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

Coming back to this game after a few months, I'm pretty surprised it hasn't been taken down a few more notches by now.
