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 (338) when infused with Raw of all the curved swords.

 

Softcaps and Scaling

  • 10/16 = 274 = Base Stats
  • 10/40 = 352 = Dex Softcap
  • 40/16 = 327 = Strength Softcap
  • 40/40 = 405 = Combined Softcap
  • This weapon receives irregular strength scaling, ranging from 1-3 per level until the soft cap.



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.
  • Drops from Falchion skeletons in Undead Settlement sewers, near Velka Statue. Requires Grave Key

      I went to the comments to see everyone saying it’s stupidly hard to grind for this thing only for me to get it on the very first skeleton I killed outside of wolnir’s boss room. If only I had this luck while grinding for proofs lmao

        All weapons should be purchaseable without mods, really limits what the playerbase uses. Farming is also never fun

        • Anonymous

          Fun fact: this weapon has the highest AR of all non-boss-weapons curved swords while being infused with refined on a 40/40 quality build

          • This is a great raw weapon early game if your doing a sorceror build. It's stat requirements are fairly low and need minimum investment and it's raw damage is quite high. Add great magic sword on top of it and mow down your enemies

              you can get the ones in undead settlement without the grave key as long as you have some spare ankles and an ember. not counting cat ring

                This weapon is my baby. It doesn't do anything fancy, it's not the best at everything, but it does the job right, looks good, and will serve you well on any build. Take it in the arena for a spin, play aggressively, and defense up. You'll find this thing to be quite enjoyable.

                  The best place to farm this is from Wolnir’s bonfire. Run back across the bridge to trigger the skely hoard a bunch have the falchion, run back to the bonfire side of the bridge and pop a coin. Farmed one in 10min

                      Very underrated refined weapon, compliments stuff like halberds and greatswords, which are usually refined too

                      • Anonymous

                        It seems to me that, unlike the other curved swords, the 1H moveset is faster than the 2H. I would like to know if someone has done some actual testing because I'm probably wrong

                        • Anonymous

                          I thought I remembered something special about this weapon from DS 1. And I think that you could use one of the boss souls on it, to turn into into one of, if not the best Dex weapon in the game and did fire damage. And with my build, at +10 chaos infused it does sick damage and executes very fast standard attacks creating a lot of DPS. It makes the Ashes DLC massively easier, almost felt like I was cheating, especially as a pyro. Like for Dex builds that also focus on intel and faith, if properly managed is crazy good. I have also had a lot of success using it as a chaos weapon in PvP

                          • Anonymous

                            this weapon is a beast for refined builds especially in PVE for it's dumb AR personally if you want a great fast weapon in PVE this is definitely it for the highest AR of any curved sword running most builds however I would not recommend it in PVP due to it's slower speed and stamina usage

                              I kid you not... 618 dead Falchion-wielding skeletons, and still no Falchion drop. This was done in the Undead Settlement sewers. Why is RNG-based loot still an acceptable mechanic? This is actual virtualized cancer.

                                I love this sword. a serpentine vibe to it, to me. plus, deals decent damage without being too OP/cheap. in DS1, had to get it near the poisoned swamp, I love swamp areas but not the lowered mobility. too bad my main rings are gold+silver serpent rings, swamp ring and Izalith ring. the serpent rings for my character's religious aspect and the swamp and Izalith rings to boost both my dark and fire/chaos pyromancies.

                                    Has the highest AR for using a flynns ring 99 dex set up if naked, just beating the chaos blade. Unlike the chaos blade a sharp falshion can be buffed with resin.

                                      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.

                                                      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.

                                                            Currently roleplaying as a Sellsword/Bandit-esque character and finally farmed Carthus CS. Damage is par with my Sunlight SS with only 4 AR difference in refined infused/quality build. Looking at Falchion's base damage in Refined infused makes me think that they probably have the same damage with CCS with the scaling bonus.NOT to mention that CCS does not have any sheath/scabbard.So yeah, Falchion or Carthus CS? (Both for Fashion Souls and PVE/PVP)

                                                              It seems like this time around, at least, as far as I can remember (I can't remember Dark Souls 2 very well though) now has a different swing than other weapons in its category. The 1-handed R1 in particular's a lot looser than the tight swing and pullback of the other curved swords like scimitar or painting guardian's sword. Pretty neat.That said, is there any reason to use the scimitar over this? I've been using the refined falchion with lightning blade and loving it, and have been wondering why anybody would use something else like the scimitar which is virtually the same weapon aside from the weight and stat requirement... unless those are the only reasons.
