Coiled Sword is a Tool in Dark Souls 3.

Coiled Sword

Sword missing from the shrine bonfire.
Cannot be equipped as a weapon.

Thrust into the shrine bonfire to restore its power and enable travel between bonfires.

This sword is only bequeathed to chosen ash, as judged by the Iudex, who awaits the arrival of ash as a scabbard.


Coiled Sword Usage

  • The only function the Coiled Sword serves is to ignite the bonfire located at the Firelink Shrine.



Coiled Sword Locations

  • The sword is found, having been pierced through the body of Iudex Gundyr at the start of the game.




  • It can't be used as a weapon of any kind and only serves to activate the bonfire in the game's main hub.




The Soul of Cinder uses a coiled sword as a primary weapon, having the name of "Firelink Greatsword". The difference being he can change the weapons shape at will for different uses and effects.

      This is probably referring to the two black knights guarding the entrance to Farron Keep. I avoided them at first, and ended up skipping Farron Keep entirely without knowing.

      One has a great club, and the other a curved greatsword. Not the fairest fight for Lv30 unless you're really good at dodging; can probably get killed in two hits from either guy, and they tend to come together.

      Easiest way to get past them is to lure them away from the stairs, then sprint past and use the ladder near the lantern on the floor. Move down a bit, and they'll fall to their death, giving you an easy 1500 souls each, and two new weapons. They don't respawn, and there's a bonfire at the bottom of the ladder.
