Irithyll Straight Sword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Straight sword bestowed upon the Outrider Knights of the Boreal Valley. This weapon is enshrouded in frost, and causes frostbite.

Every Outrider Knight one day devolves into a beast, constantly hounded by Pontiff Sulyvahn's black eyes.

Skill: Stance
While in stance, use normal attack to break a foe's guard from below, and strong attack to slash upwards with a forward lunge.



Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused or Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
  • Being a standard straight sword, an effective combo for PvP is R1+R1+R2+R2. While it doesn't true combo, the delay of the first R2 lines up with the duration of a medium roll, letting the attack connect outside of the opponent's i-frames.
  • All weapons have motion values assigned to each attack, which are modifiers to AR that are associated with the attack being used.
    • The Irithyll Straight Sword has a motion value of 200 on backstab, 250 on riposte, and 60+225 on Hornet Ring riposte. The motion value of a backstab with a straight sword does not change with Hornet Ring.
  • The Irithyll Straight Sword has a range of 35.5063xl on the 1h R1 and 35.0193xl on the 2h R1.
  • The Irithyll Straight Sword has thrusting R2 attacks when 1h.
  • Causes Frostbite
    • Does not scale with Luck or Upgrade level
  • The weapon is powerful at low levels due to its high base damage and frostbite, but can be used effectively later on due to its long reach.

        This has to be one of the best straight swords imo, it has great range and moveset and damage to supplement this and frostbite is the cherry on top. This MELTS Gael on NG+3 and beyond.

          Gather round lads and harken to me tale of a casual, who began his journey. The casual forged ahead through the ashen cemetery, to the judge where he would be judged, and on that day a journey began, a journey more relative than you think. For the casual had no clue what to do, no clue who he was, or his purpose, his only friends were those of the shrine, and his r1 button, but nonetheless he forged on through the perils of the souls left alive. Until he found a sword, a pure white sword, layerd in frost, it provided comfort and security, and the power it held reassured him. So he trudged on. Until the spirit came, a dark spirit who prayed upon one such as him, but he did not back down, hild his blade tight he spammed like never before, although he fought in vain, that casual learned that day that there are more friends in the world than his r1 button, and that there was more to learn through his adventures. For every great hero and legend started at the bottom, but it's his climb to the top that matters the most.

              this sword has its meme reputation, and for good reason, but it's really not bad at all on a meta level quality build. Hits decently hard, builds up frost, good range, good old reliable straight sword moveset

                Kirk armor, obscurity ring, pontiff eye, cloranthy ring and this sword allowed me to rek so many people in fightclubs.... puts pressure on, guard breaks with the weapon art and the annoying invisible spike rolls makes people panic. Easy to avoid backstabs and without them most people suck at pvp tbh.

                  ppl using this sword in late game areas are usually gods at PVP so becareful befor you point down a guy wearing fallen knight armor and using this sword

                    Honestly a great sidearm option for the frostbite effect, then switch to your main weapon for massive damage.

                        While this is the casul weapon for the mediocre scaling, no buffs or infusions, slow frost bite build up, using twinkling titanite, and general consensus I still enjoy using this weapon as a Gael killer, sure many weapons like the lothric knight straight sword may be inherently better in later levels this weapon is simply badass to use and a solid starting load out weapon

                          Anyone else annoyed by the fact that you can see the frost effect of this sword from behind objects including the player’s back? The frost effect looks cool but they could stand to tone it down a bit.

                            This sword is cool but is kinda mediocre:
                            Pro:
                            straight sword
                            more range than average
                            pure physical damage
                            frostbite aux
                            ok scaling and damage

                            Con:
                            On high level frostbite deals almost no damage
                            takes 5-6 hits to proke frostbite
                            on quality build consistently out damaged by other straight swords
                            unbuffable
                            need twinks, like use that on a black knight sword or something

                              Casual, unoriginal and uncool on low lvl. Rare and cool on SL100 ++

                              Personally i love it's look. Usually I dont like using straight swords in pvp, mostly because they're so good it kind of feels cheap and too easy, but from time to time I make an exception for this sword and fashion.

                                you can use this on a sl1 build with knights ring and hoonters ring. sot the best damage considering u cant infuse this, but if you like magic dust coming off your weapon, you should try this. its also good on bosses weak to frost, like thotslayer armour. ironicaly tho u get the hoonters ring AFTER thotslayer so its kinda pointless.

                                  Somebody should put the fact that you can manipulate the frostbite cool down by using fire every time the frostbite effect triggers. If you freeze an enemy, they lose a % of their hp, but can’t be frostbitten for another ~30 seconds, unless hit with fire, which resets the cool down. You can just spam r1 til they freeze, hit with fire dagger, repeat

                                    this weapon is good for smurfing. +0 irithyll straight sword + dark hand is the best smurfing build for pussies.

                                      The majority of these comments are from worthless idiots that want to judge people for playing a game. I would say this is a solid weapon for anyone to use, but it relies on SA. Make sure to combo, but spacing is always most important. Don't listen to the the scrubs that hate this weapon. They just suck and want to manipulate anyone that could beat them pvp, which is literally anyone.

                                        Of course since Fextra sucks, they didn't write in this buff.

                                            Something I've overlooked is that this sword is probably the single best Straight Sword for ganking. Frostbite increases not only your damage but also the damage of your team, plus it can be reset by your pyromancer if you have one and it has very good range. If you're new and you're looking at the comments of this wiki to decide if you should use this, it's definitely a good option. Just make sure to go a 40/40 STR DEX build otherwise it's not gonna hit hard at all.

                                              i played through all of dark souls 3 on my first playthrough years ago with it just because it was the only decent weapon i was comfortable with early on, and tbh i recommend NOT doing that. yeah, i absolutely agree it's a fantastic weapon overall but dark souls is so much more fun when you're experimenting with other weapons. i also personally just kind of find the straightswords a little boring. of course, it's personal taste. if you enjoy this weapon, feel free! just don't be afraid to branch out (:

                                                Its really not that good, I have beaten dark souls 3 with it, but it was very challenging. If you're looking for a good dex weapon, a sharp +10 sellsword twinblades is one of the best weapons in game.

                                                    I see a lot of people saying this sword is bad, but Frostbite chip damage is nothing to laugh at. It also has one of the longest ranges of all the Straight Swords so it has a lot going for it. The only downside is a bad scaling (only 388 at 40/40) but that's compensated by Frostbite. Does 218 damage to an unembered player with 40 vigor, plus -15 Stamina Regen and +7% increased damage. The 7% extra damage alone effectively brings the AR to 415. Not to be underestimated if whoever's using it isn't just R1 spamming.

While summoned and rebuffed, I frostbit Lorian in about 5 or 6 hits. It’s a really good weapon and I recommend it since most enemies/bosses aren’t immune to frostbite.

                                                                • Made a Frost character for cosplay, but holy crap this thing has bad scaling early. The only good thing is it runs on Twinkling Titanite, so you can fully upgrade it by about Abyss Watchers/Deacons, along with heading to the first DLC for a Titanite Slab. Hopefully the Strength scaling gets better than what I am currently getting at a +2 weapon upgrade.

                                                                  • Anonymous

PvE-wise at least, ESPECIALLY if paired with a crossbow with exploding bolts as the bolts count as fire damage and reset the build-up after you get your damage. PvP-wise, you would need roughly 4-5 hits in immediate succession to proc Frostbite, which is just not reasonable to ask of anyone in a PvP fight.

                                                                    • Anonymous

No matter what build I make, i gradually gravitate back to this sword. Light weight, second highest damage for a straight sword, very high dps and fast swing, obtained early in game, and the frostbite is a very useful touch as well. The light weight makes it pair quite well with a great shield. If you're going with a straight sword, this is one of the best.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • I love this sword. Easiest Slave Knight Gael kill yet. Don't know whether he's just super susceptible to frostbite, but this sword absolutely wrecked him, compared to Anri's straight sword or the Farron GS for example.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

Do weapons not show in the reinforcement section of the blacksmith if you do not have the materials to do so?

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                Pretty much every dark souls 3 players choice weapon. You’ll either see this or someone slapping you with their dark hand (don’t ask why it’s dark). Of course in Fallen Knight set also! Because what is originality?

                                                                                But in all do seriousness, this weapon is very, very, VERY viable in the hands of someone who knows how to use this. Try pairing it with snap freeze on a Sorcery build and use this when people get too close to you. That’s at least what I did! Oh and please don’t use the Fallen Knight set with the this.... it just starts to get old....

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  Easily my favorite straight sword because it's simply easy to use and provides many benefits. Just in case of it failing you though, I'd keep a normal damage Longsword with you as well in case you run into any frost-immune enemies.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

I keep using it against various enemies, and their attacks always seem to bypass me. Or is it just the lunging low-profiles my hitbox? I can't find much information on this stance's attacks, which is surprising since it seems so helpful, but all I see about straight swords is R1 talk.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

He continues to charge you and will fall in. Boom done deal. Also I did that***** on accident cause I waltzed up like wassup I'm fresh from the thrift shop saw him was like nope he was chasing me but I was locked on just walking backwards and meant to just get on the lift but over shot it it went up I didnt and he was just like "This *****ing noon I can't even" and he killed himself and I got the sword

I upgraded it to +5 and just finished killing Master Gundyr (killed all bosses before with that sword). You guys think this sword would help me till the end of the game out? Or should I upgrade another weapon

                                                                                                • Anonymous

You get it early, put all your twinkling titanite into it, and get it to +8 equivalent before the point where titanite chunks are readily available.

Perfectly balanced for both PvE and PvP (of course, since it's a straight-sword). Its running attack is great for catching people off guard, and the rolling attack has a pretty good range. Overall a good weapon, however it doesn't have good heavy attacks, and the weapons art for it isn't too special.

                                                                                                    (New Players):

There is a bonfire on the other side, and you can use the doorway to employ guerrilla tactics until it has died :)
