Dancer's Enchanted Swords is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.

Paired enchanted swords that Pontiff Sulyvahn bestowed upon the Dancer of the Boreal Valley. These blades, symbollic of the Dancer's vows, are enchanted with dark magic in the right hand, and fire in the left, mirroring the Pontiff.

Unleash the fury of both blades in a dancing spin motion and use strong attack to continue the performance until stamina is exhausted.

  • The right blade only deals physical and magic damage.
  • The left blade only deals physical and fire damage.
    • This blade always has more damage than the magic one.

      I actually found that these have an infinite stunlock. Your opponent must be near a wall and you must have the wall on your left. When using the L1 the animation will get canceled fast enough to continue using L1 infinitely (well until you run out of stamina) - ChaseTheBro ps. dude below me tried stealing my discovery lol

        I have found that these stunlock if you hit someone and hit the wall with L1 or LB I found this out by fighting my friend in a dual and getting cornered as you guessed I won. ( not at all recommended to use this weapon for the stunlock )

          For a meta level, this weapon fits to a 20/25/30/30 build… So a weakest pyromancer investing much point in both str and more in dex…?

            Important infos about the scaling not mentioned in this wiki: INT affects the magic damage and the fire damage, FTH affects only fire damage, as expected. But STR and DEX affects not only physical damage but also magic and fire!

              I guess you could use these feather dusters to tickle your opponents nipples. These things are about as useful as going in to fiddle a brick wall with limp pool noodles.

                I am wanting to do a boss cosplay arena fight with some friends and the build I am currently using has 24 str 22 dex 40 int and 40 fth. I also only have 17 vit. I believe that this weapon with the dancer armor set is the most effective boss build I am going to get with those stats. However, I did hear that the damage was terrible. Will this weapon work?

                  pve not good pvp 1v1 rlly bad 2v2 maybe mediocre at best if you are rlly good but co-op vs bosses when you ally gives you the chance to go all out ? rlly nice extremly fun However if you want to use this blades you ned them full lvl full lvl or dont use them for solo plays and pvp you get stunlocked midcombo so not worth

                    This is a great example of the weapons that look good on paper but are horrible in game. Too slow, too heavy, too parriable, too much split damage nonsense... and that weapon art. It's sexy but just overall so hard to hit the person; both with the WA and the standard attacks. It's a shame, these could've been really fun and cool to use. Gives me conniptions.

                      If you're willing to invest almost everything (35/40/35/30 Str,Dex,Int,Fth) the AR is around 707. With 30 Vigor, 20 Endurance, a little skill and a prayer to God you can do a lot of damage. (Starting class pyromancer)

                        only one thing to say to the people in the comments they are slow BUT NOT SLOW ENOUGH TO COMPLAIN AS MUCH AS YOU DO. they are still faster than any two-handed weapons and faster than most heavy 1 handers.

                          These seemed like the obvious item choice after seeing the Dancer wield them, but boy are their attacks clunky as hell. I probably would've gotten more use out of Soothing Sunlight, to be honest.

                          • 26 Feb 2018 07:05  

                            Okay. Can we talk about *why the hell the main hand blade does not have dark damage?*

                            Really - in the fight, the Dancer pulls out the sword from the ground, with a pretty visible - and audible - "splash" of Dark. The attacks from that blade deal Dark, the shockwave she makes with it deals Dark, the *description of the weapon* says one of the blades is enchanted with Dark...

                            *Why the hell is it magic then?*

                            It does not even make sense scaling-wise! It is practically impossible to get an even number of damage from the blades, with one of them scaling only from INT and the other from both INT and FTH. If it had been Dark damage, the scalings would've been equal!

                            This weapon is one of my overall favourites in the game just from sheer style. The concept is amazing, the weapon art graceful and the moveset fantastic - of only it was not marred with such terrible design choices damage-wise.

                              Here’s some advice, this weapon is THE most finicky to use in the game! The base damage being on the low side, the god awful scaling, the split damage, the slow move set, the nearly impossible to hit weapon art, the lying AR, and lastly..... 8.5 UNITS!?!?

                              So basically this weapon is very finicky but be aware it’s not bad..... but not good.... kinda half decent. It’s very parraible and nearly everyone (some who never even have seen the weapon) can parry it and it’s very slow for a twin blade. However it can do some pretty decent damage if you know how to use it. The weapon is extremely sexy though! Overall, if you aren’t like me and need to do boss cosplay, use a different weapon... any weapon is a lot easier to use.
