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.

      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

          I dunno why you literally never see anyone use this anymore. It was completely broken, they rightfully nerfed it and now it's just a really good weapon.

            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 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'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.
