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.
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. While it doesn't true combo, the delay of the 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 range of 19sp on the 1h R1.
- sp, or Shield Pokes, are a unit of measurable distance to determine the range of a weapon. Certain actions create different distances from a wall, allowing one to test the range of certain attacks. While this testing isn't 100% accurate, it is a very good indicator of the ranges of each attack.
- The Irithyll Straight Sword has thrusting R2 attacks.
- 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.
