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.

      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.

                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.

                    These swords complete my Dancer of the Boreal Valley cosplay perfectly. I love doing low level invasions on people dressed as the Dancer complete with blades, right around the time they're trying to do the Dancer for the first time. You can really feel the fear sometimes. I understand that. Dancer was the first boss to really cause me grief. I got so much better at the game by learning how to beat her. When I got to NG+, and it came time to beat her again, I did it first try with two-thirds Estus remaining.

                    So if you're around SL60 and are facing the Dancer, and you see a guy running around dressed as her trying to stab you, it's probably me.

                      Dispite how***** the special is, it's absurdly fun to use. Especialy when you and 2 other summons use it to blend an invader.

                        Seriously? "Tested on slimes"? Slimes take double damage from fire and less than 50% from everything else, so of course the L1 is going to hit for alot more: it uses the flame sword while R1 uses the dark one. Weapons must be tested on enemies that don't have resistance or vulnerability to their damage type. That's why players are the best.

                          Why is it in the boss fight that the dancers right hand weapon is black and transposed is pink u would kind of expect them 2 b the same i simply don't understand the reason as 2 why.

                            If u look close enough u can see that the weapon has holes in it and a similar pattern to that of which resembles the pontiff knight curved sword.

                              If only the WA did more dmg. Comon From its so difficult to land with that slow windup, atleast make it a one combo kill if someone lands it.

                                I've been trying this out with my high level Dex-caster; I'm finding the damage to be pretty good when I manage to land a full combo, it's just so slow that this very rarely happens. The LB sequence is about as fast as a greathammer but without the poise damage. The rolling LB attack is nice and would be good for catching people rolling through the first attack but you then have no follow-up moves; there are no cross-technique combos except RB-LB. These feel slow and cumbersome which the exact opposite of how paired curved swords should be. If they had continuous combos and half the down time between attacks they'd be great. The Aquamarine dagger fits the 'magic weapon with fancy moves' niche so much better.
