Falchion is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Standard curved sword and widely-used slashing weapon.

The falchion's flesh-rending slash attacks are greatly compromised against armor and tough scale-covered hides.

Skill: Spin Slash
Slice into foes with a large spinning motion, and continue spinning to transition into strong attack.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Infused and Buffed. 
  • Reinforced using Titanite.
  • Features improved range and a unique moveset compared to most curved swords.
  • Has the highest AR (335) when infused with Raw of all the curved swords.



Location/Where to Find

  • Dropped by Falchion skeletons in the Catacombs of Carthus.
  • Starting from the High Lord Wolnir bonfire, head straight out the entrance of the boss room and backtrack through the area and across the rickety bridge (this will not work if the bridge is in its ladder form) and down into the gathering of awakening skeletons. There are many Falchion Skeletons here that are farmable.
  • An easier grinding spot is from the Abandoned Tomb bonfire. Backtrack and target the two skeletons/pile of bones closest to the stairway. They will reanimate, so use a blessed weapon. The rest of the skeletons in this room have Scimitars.

      Has the Highest AR of all Curved Swords, with 40 DEX and a Sharp Infusion is does 399 while one-handed, and 404 while two-handed. While one-handed, it consumes 20 Stamina to attack, and 25 while two-handed, so it's in the middle of all other Curved Swords. It has an average weapon reach when compared to other weapons, but it is comparatively shorter than other Curved Swords. And finally, it's kick is a Normal Kick, rather than the Flip Kick most other Curved Swords have, making it much better at breaking someones guard.


      9/10, a very reliable and powerful weapon that isn't to be taken lightly.

        Surprisingly good damage at low levels + RAW.
        Get one in the settlement sewers, upgrade it to +2 or so and you can do peasant cosplay R1 spam invasions.

          was good in Demons Souls because we could get it early and that was all there was to it. the DS3 "Falchion" is another weapon now. Irithyll Straight sword.

              The AR for Fire infusion is wrong. At +10 it gets 212 Slash & 212 Fire. Oddly enough though, when you equip it and check your AR the game says you have 425 so I guess the 212 are rounded up number?

                Honestly, with a quailty 40/40 build, this thing has a AP of 445 two handed on refined. Pretty crazy though. I like to use the combo r1 + r1 + r2 + weapon art
                Catches a lot of people. Does a bit of damage, but I wouldn't say it's overpowered.

                    This page is definitely outdated. Just upgraded my Raw Falchion to +8 and it already has 302 AR one-handed.

                      A doubt the curved swords including the follower's saber, falchion and curved carthus sword gets better refined or sharp?

                        So I was just going through all kinds of weapons with MugenMonkey to check whether there are any that scale significantly better now than they used to... and came up with this on a 40/40 STR/DEX set up (all weapons have MAX AR with Refined Infusion):

                        - Carthus Curved Sword: 410 2H AR
                        - Follower Sabre: 422 2H AR
                        - Falchion: 445 2H AR

                        Again, this is just some info taken from Mugen which could be wrong but... if this true, Falchion is now the strongest Curved Sword in the game?

                        ...

                        Dark Souls I is back babyyy. Obobobo meme. Do you even R1 bro? Dorkmoon all those blades.

                          Can also drop from the skeletons in the small catacombs of the Undead Settlement. Obviously not a very efficient farming location, but it's possible to get an early Falchion this way.
