Dark Sword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Pitch-black straight sword of the Darkwraith, survivor of the land swallowed by darkness.

The Darkwraiths were the first red orb invaders, and originators of a unique sword technique inspired by their thick, broad blades.

Skill: Stomp
Use one's weight to lunge forward with a low stance and increased poise, and follow with strong attack for an upward slash.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • The heavy attack is a unique vertical sweeping slash; the range is a bit shorter than longsword's heavy attack.
  • This weapon is unique due to it being the only longsword class weapon with the Stomp Weapon Art.
  • When infused with Refined has 428 AR having 40 in both STR and DEX stats.
  • When infused with a Dark Gem, it will be called a "Reinforced Dark Sword" instead of "Dark Dark Sword."

          I take back what I said about the R2 being awkward and unwieldy. If you mix up your moves, the R2 can catch a lot of people off guard and save you from parry spammers. 2-handing this thing is pretty great too.

            Anyone who says this isn't still OP and at the very least meta is fucking retarded. The damage is still amazing at any level range, low, mid and high, and the reach is still just as broken as it's ever been. The reach alone makes this meta, would you rather have more damage and less reach or more reach and less damage? Have you never faced this exact same question while choosing between the broadsword and longsword? Which did you choose? The longsword because it has barely lower AR and has more reach (talking low level, not sure endgame)... Not that this even DOES less damage. I love all these "it's been nerfed!" comments, it's hilarious. Like the patches have ever been a reliable method of fixing anything... Force buffing was a thing till LAST patch... The nerf was just a slight one, that's it, it didn't castrate the dark sword... Reach is everything on a straight sword and the damage literally isn't a problem.

              I infused this sword with heavy with a knignt build focusing on strength and it is awesome. It is fast and a bit stronger than the others straight swords, very reliable.

                  Let's just settle this once and for all. Yes, you've read in a 2016 article that this is a tryhard meta sword. It is not anymore, now go whine about Lothric Knight Sword users being tryhard instead.

                    Is sharp useless on this thing? It seems Refined gives more dex scaling than Sharp, but you never know with these arbitrary scaling scores. Also if it's possible to test, if raw is almost always better than dex on this thing.

                        I just use the Dark Sword because it's a cool looking straight sword, no real other reason. I just enjoy the way it looks.

                          i dont even know why everyone (or a least a large community of players) consider this sword as a "most wanted straightsword" or a "OP" weapon, sure the WA come handy when you dont have other weapon with stomp (bastard sword or zweihander for even more poise) but take out the WA out of the equation and what we have? about the range a lothric sword is better maybe the longsword too,the moveset? his R2 is too slow and have less versatility than a longsword, the weight? its one of the heaviest straight swords (behind paired straightsword), so at least this sword have more damage? well i make a few tests on mugenmonkey with 40 in str/dex/faith/int and compare (dark sword/longsword/lothric sword) with most infusions (pure physical and elements ones) and i didnt notice any real difference like 20 more AR. so if some DS3 experts can explain why this sword is excellent except for his WA because what i see for now is only hype from noobs/casuals comments (i see a lot of websites which recommend this sword)

                            what is the best scaling for this thing? I'm trying to use it in a sorcerer build as my right hand weapon? I have very high intelligence is that a good stat to scale with this weapon? I have not played for long and am simply curious.
