      Carthus Shotel uses the same moveset as the CCS, it does not share the moveset of the Scimitar. The Shotel has a kick.

      • 25 Nov 2020 11:10  

        i have the carthus shotel to +10, dunno how, but i can actually raise the bleeding from 30 to 60, would it be worth it ? would it be alot easier to cause bleeds ? not really on expert on that tbh

        thanks in advance

          I feel like this weapon doesn't get nearly enough love. I hardly ever see it in PvP, but the combination of shield pierce, bleed buildup, multi-hit weapon art and a good chasedown moveset makes it absolutely melt players who are hiding behind shields. My SL60 Dex build runs with this in the mainhand and Great Corvian Scythe in the offhand (for even more shield pierce and bleed with a lot more reach), and it has a very consistent win rate against sword-and-board players. Just remember that some medium shields can parry, so don't spam R1s.

            I saw a lot of people compare this and carthus curved sword. It is simple, CCS for dex build with a touch of bleed, CS is good for quality dex/luck due to the B scaling!

              50 dex + dark or chaos infusion makes it one of the best weapons you could ever ask for as a hexer/pyromancer. Not only is the damage fantastic, the weapon skill on it, when used as a follow up for a normal swing, can hit for around 800-900 damage. Oh and the shield damage on it is pretty good. 1 swing against even the mightiest of shields will still do at least 75 damage. (2 swings without a shield will normally hit in the 500-600 range.)

              My only problem with the weapon is that doesn't look all too great but eh, the range on it makes up for it.

                find skeletons with this weapon, just on the left corridor, after the down stairs on the left, by the rolling skeleton ball from Catacombs of catrhus bonfire.

                    If you leave this un-infused and buff it with crystal magic weapon, with about 50 int it can do some pretty substantial damage for a pure caster.
