Long Sword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



A balanced, widely-used standard straight sword. Inflicts reliable standard damage, as well as high thrust damage.

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:

  • Can be Buffed and Infused.
  • Reinforced with 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. 
    • It can be a good idea to hold the first R2 for a moment to get past delayed rolls and parries.
  • A neutral one-handed tap R2 will combo with the follow-up R2. 
  • All weapons have motion values assigned to each attack, which are modifiers to AR that are associated with the attack being used.
    • The Long 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 Long Sword has a range of 33.6343xl on the 1h R1 and 33.0704xl on the 2h R1.
  • The Long Sword has thrusting R2 attacks when used 1h.

      THIS my friend is your good old reliable.
      Is good no mather of build.
      Got big ass weapon for strength but enemie rolling or running too fast? Just do quick swap. Got magic but need some self protection for no mana cost? its there for you. You wanna build dex build but wanna focus bit more on health and little bit on magic? Raw crystal and good to go.
      This weapon is by no means the best. Nor most exciting and fanciest one in dark souls. But it's doing its job how it should be doing. Doing good. Not fantastic, but good. If you don't wanna use this weapon it's fine and understandable, but you should at least consider having it as back up option. You never know when you gonna need good speed with solid dmg.

        One of the best and most flexible weapons in the entire series, no matter what game it appears in. Perfect for Quality builds, as a sidearm for magic builds, and even a backup option for Dex or Strength-based builds. Do yourself a favor and use one of these (or a Lothric Knight Sword, either works) for any of a variety of reasons.

          Just upgraded on of these reliable gems to +9 with dark infusion its physical atk is 113 at C scaling and it has 118 base dark damage with A scaling in int and faith instead of B as shown in the table. Im at 60 faith and It gives me + 143 in dark damage. Just wanted to point out.

            Hello DS3 player, I am come to you for a little favour, and I will carry this message to everywhere in DS3 community.
            There is a glitch that allows you to summon white sign mad phantom in Gael’s Arena (Credit to Dashingsaint), if you keep Shira alived while she invade you (you can escape her simply sprint out her aggro range), you won’t trigger gael boss cutscene, and then you could put down you purple summon white sign or summon other white purple.
            Thus, a new fight club is founded, an arena in a long lost dessert under the sunset sky which sprinkle with fainted galaxy.
            If you’re watching this, kindly please help me share this and invite any ds3 enthusiast you known to this new fight club, your little effort would be much appreciated.
            SL25+2, SL40+4, SL60+6, SL72+8, SL90+10, SL125 Meta, SL 351++, all SL range are acceptable.
            Welcome to the Gael’s Sunset Arena, the most beautiful map in the entire series, the last arena at the End of World.
            I will await you there, in the End of the World, and we shall fight eternal, shiny and incandescence.
            LONG MAY THE DARK SOULS COMMUNITY LIVE

              If only it was shiny like the dsr and ds2 versions. And while I understand the reason, I really wish its blade was clean as well.

                My dumbass gathered titanite to +10 one of these and infuse it with hollow for my str/luck character. It was days before I remembered Anri's sword exists

                Anyway if Dark Souls was Smash Bros, Longsword would be Mario. Might seem a bit boring with all the other options, but it can take you all the way to the top. It has the speed, power, range, and versatility to handle just about any situation

                  The gold standard in perfectly balanced phallic weapons that naturally seeks a confident alpha male. Beta's go for the longer but girthless lothric straight sword. Inferior stock gravitate to the chode-like broadsword that can only thrust in one style that is telegraphed and predictable. The Longsword is like a true classic. It never goes out of style. Even if you stray from it with a murky dagger build or the lapp armored hunk with an irithyll curved sword, the Longsword isn't jealous and partial. It serves everyone and will be there when you inevitably decide to take it back. No matter your build.

                    Makes an excellent melee weapon for a Pyromancer due to its low stat requirements, relatively high attack speed and excellent scaling with either Chaos or Dark infusion.

                    • There's a space in the name unless it's infused. For example Long Sword becomes Refined Longsword. Isn't that neat and definitely not confusing or arbitrary?

                          Literally the only good weapon for everything.
                          Speed, dps and easy to level and get.
                          I feel after BB influence, any weapon that has even a 1 second delay before hitting its target, is automatically worthless.
                          Why weapon art?
                          Just spam.
                          Why use boss weapon arts?
                          By the time the animation is done, youd have killed them with your sword
                          Big club mace against anything?
                          No, just use sword, the mace wont kill em fast enough.

                          And dont worry, most enemies, like you, dont have poise.
                          And the few that do, can be rolled trough their attacks, cause stamina in 3 is more generous, so you can spam after dodging.
                          Skip magic builds, by the time your done casting, the sword would have finished them.

                          • Allow me to explain why this weapon is 'bad' (not actually bad just in a weird spot)
                            So, it's useful for builds that don't want to build much Str/Dex, but most of those builds also don't like to level Endurance very much, making the Shortsword the far superior weapon due to the lower stamina consumption. Stamina cost really starts to matter when you aren't leveling Endurance. If you ARE a build that levels Str/Dex, you'll either go Lothric Knight SS for a Dex build, Gotthards for a Quality build, Broadsword for a Strength build, so where I ask does this sword truly fit in? I don't think the slight range bonus is worth putting it over the Shortsword, and the Shortsword does everything else better.

                              Would this wep be good for sl1 run? Or broadsword is still better? Also, for the sl1 run is it good to go Raw path or Elemental? Say Deep or Fire. I guess its probably best to go Raw with high usage of resins

                                this weapon literally work on basically any build it's kinda insane how flexible it is.
                                want a pure AR build? has great scaling for Quality, Strength, and Dexterity builds
                                want some elemental damage? well it has great elemental infusions and can buffed without them
                                on top of that no matter what you do to this it's usually top of it's class only either beaten by the broadsword or competed with by the dark sword.
                                if you need a weapon for any build, use the long sword, it won't let you down no matter what build you run.

                                  This one is underrated I used this sword with a refined build (40 dex 40 str) and my ar was around 500, 600 with buff and WA is rewarding when playing offensive. i recommand a "simple" caestus offhand for sp regen, parry and fast hit

                                  It is also very rewarding to play it agressive

                                        The sword is a simple tool, but in the hands of a master it becomes the most versatile of weapons, and just as the imagination is limitless, so too are the possibilities of the sword.

                                            Good for dark souls 3 starters. Play as knight which has long sword at start. Infuse with raw gem. Maximise health and stamina. Spam r1. It also has thrust for narrow spaces.

                                              Viable for a FTH build? I wanna try running a sort of "holy knight" character but given that this is a quality weapon I might be starved for stats while remaining within meta level (as FTH already requires me to level it and ATT, and VIG and END are necessary for any build). Given how lightning miracles aren't very good until you hit 60FTH I'm really stretching my levels here.

                                                Would a Longsword with dark infusion be a suitable weapon to use with a mainly STR/INT/FTH build? Alongside using Dark Clutch Ring and Pontiff's Right Eye?

                                                    On this weapon its worth to infuse it with a simple gem for a mage. It reaches almost the same damage as the crystal infusion since it has a better scaling on a simple infusion while you profit from the FP regen

                                                      Possibly one of the best weapons. Great Utility moveset, the weapon art has very nice usage (especially the guard break r1, not as good as the claymore but a lot faster) and excels with just about any build, from regular sword and board to a caster, this'll work on anything. Especially on a mage, as crystal LSS might be a bit better, the stat investment can make it non viable. Great weapon, and if you use it right you can really go to town with this.

                                                        Very good jack of all trades with low stat investment. Sure the LKS is more successful, but maybe your strength build doesn't want to invest that heavily in dex. The longsword is very good with scaling infusions all-round too

                                                          Weightless, Reliable, Quick, and most importantly deadly. With it’s only downside being range. Highly recommend if you want a good backup or like to get up close to attack.

                                                            In my opinion, the less stamina consumption, way lower stat requirements, and combo-ing R2s (True combo) makes this a better option than the LKS at lower soul levels (I play at 82).

                                                              Very first weapon belonging to the very first starting class. Amazing move set with two completely useful weapon art moves. Fine damage with just about any infusion, melee at least ... little stamina cost allowing you to keep pressure and consistent attacks and next to no weight. A flawless weapon with no effort required to obtain.

                                                                Y’know, with my Ledo’s there was almost no fight club I couldn’t dominate. I then went to Rosaria and made a quality build. Sword and Board. Average knight. 50/50 chance of me winning every time. I’m no longer the strongest guy in the room. I lose. I’m the underdog in this brutal world and this metal suit is supposed to protect me? Impossible odds. No more staggering bosses into oblivion. No more one shoting PvPers. I’m now the average knight. And I love it.

It's literally just a normal performance straight sword. No 10 extra crit, less reach, same damage. It's an inferior LKS. At most, all it has on LKS is that the r2 combos instead of repeated thrusts, but who uses 2 r2s?

                                                                  • Anonymous

And when you get to half health you can twohand FUGS and buff with charcoal pine resin lol.

                                                                    • Anonymous

A Refined +10 weapon deals 203 (???) damage with B/B Strength/Dexterity scaling? Why is the parenthesis value excluded?

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          Unless it's the Broadsword table, this Longsword table isn't fully updated.
                                                                          I checked the Fire and Deep infusions of both the Longsword and the Broadsword because I thought the higher damage made the Broadsword better with a split damage infusion.
                                                                          It does. Obviously both are useful.
                                                                          Except, one of these is not updated. Both swords are very very close in stats, but here, there's like 20-30 AR of difference, and if you check other more regulated tables on reddit, you'll find they're consistent with the game.

                                                                          I'm pretty sure I remember a nerf to straight swords a long time ago. Weird that it's not edited here yet.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            LS:
                                                                            Heavy (60 Str): 405
                                                                            Sharp (60 Dex): 423
                                                                            Refined (40/40): 428 - (60/60): 478

                                                                            I think this makes this weapon one of the best 1h swords in the game followed by the Short Sword for infusions and by the Lothric Knight Sword for Dark infusion and buffs.

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              I played with a lot of different builds and weapons, including magic. I tried a lot of things in both PvE and PvP, I finally came to the conclusion this weapon is the my favorite.

                                                                              It is good in every situation, it is a jack of all trade (and slightly king in all to be honest). This is a weapon that could be difficult to use at its full potential for an inexperienced player, but you can do anything with it if you are seasoned enough.
                                                                              For PvE, again as a seasoned player, you will have little to no difficulty to defeat every boss/enemy in the game, you can play with a small shield to parry or a medium shield if you like. It even works with a greatshield (but you'll look kind of funky).

                                                                              In PvP this weapon is incredibly good but requires great mastering. It has really fast R1s allowing to outspeed players with medium-low poise and stun them before their hit lands. If you are facing a tank build you can use the speed of this weapon to roll-poke around the shield. If you are facing a caster, again roll-poking can be good, just as the running R1 attack which has a deceptively wide range.
                                                                              This weapon may look easy to parry, however if you are facing a parry god (parry spammer even), do the following: Roll. Poke. The roll-poke attack (roll + R1) is extremely difficult to parry as the parry frame is minuscule (after ranking up most covenants to max rank, I've never been parried on this attack). If the hits land, you can safely go for a regular R1 since your opponent cannot move until the second hit.
                                                                              Against a parry player you can also use the weapon art which may seem crappy at first but can be used to vary your attacks and confuse your opponent on the parrying frame.

                                                                              If you are facing someone who rolls like their is no tomorrow fear not my friend, longsword has your back. Put some Carthus Rouge on it, the hits won't do damage through the roll but the bleed will build up (just like frostbite or poison) and you will still land some serious damage.

                                                                              In case you are facing a fast UGS user things can be tricky, personally I'd try to bait a hit, roll once, roll twice since they tend to believe you won't roll through the second hit, (if you feel the enemy is quite good you can try a third roll to avoid a funky third hit spam) and then poke or try a backstab, rince and repeat.

                                                                              To be honest I can't really think of a weapon that can handle so many different situations this well. Definitely my god-tier weapon.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                After a 1200 hours killed into this game, using every damned weapon and builds I decided to throw back to my DS roots: Cosplaying and Astoran Knight with a Longsword.

                                                                                While it's a bit weird playing with a small weapon like this again, I found out that no matter how big a weapon is, how much elemental damage they do and can do sick combos/weapon arts, still no other weapon be as damn effective as a straight sword. Especially this one, the most balanced one of all.
                                                                                It can be used with ANY build. Has great scalings infused with everything. Very fast and easy to abuse moveset. Inbuild guardbreak WA.
                                                                                Best to use a shield with it. Classic Sword-And-Board can still stand up to everything.
                                                                                You can't go wrong with this "basic weapon".
                                                                                No matter how many other weapons are out there, this little piece of steel will always be my favourite one of all.

                                                                                • Using MugenMonkey to test out some damage values for a +10 Longsword, so people have the info for reference.

                                                                                    I have a question for this weapon and my build. I'm currently running a faith build and I like using this weapon.
                                                                                    If I imbue the longsword with Lightning I get an AR of about 470. If I imbue it with Blessed I get an AR of about 390.
                                                                                    Now because Lightning is technically "Split" Damage would Blessed do more actual Damage?
                                                                                    Thanks guys =)

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          • Anonymous

A 100% protection weapon art shield makes it one of the most powerful loadouts in the game with a ton of versatility. Use this and get good with it and you'll have little trouble with basically anyone.

                                                                                            • I have been using straight swords since Dark Souls 1. Apparently the Long sword is top tier in PvP (Im not going to complain).
                                                                                              However, I seem to have no trouble beating spell casters and light/medium weapon users in PvP but when it comes to the heavy weapon guys Im getting crushed (sometimes literally). Im not ranting or anything like that but If anyone has any tips for PvP vs Heavy weapon guys with a long sword - I would greatly appreciate it!
                                                                                              I've tried hit and run tactics, tried parrying (not a good idea vs ultra weapons etc). Tried fishing for backstabs (harder to get in DS3 it appears). The only success Ive had is if I can intimidate them into panic rolls etc (which good players wont do). Also when I got lucky with backstabs when I started out (am I missing a technique here to be consistent with them?). Tried perfect shielding hits but stamina takes a brutal beating (40 endurance). Tried timing rolls but smart players will vary and delay swings.
                                                                                              Anyone got any experience dealing with heavy weapon guys using a long sword? I'd appreciate any approaches to it and strategies dealing with them.
                                                                                              Just wanna git gudder ya know?

The scaling rank means a % bonus to the base demage. C=50%, B=75%, A=100% S=130+% bonus with ~50 statpoints.

                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

The Dark Sword has exactly the same AR but manages only 8 swings with no clear moveset to break defense like the Longswords L2/R1. The Dark Sword is not worth it anymore.

                                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                                      The Longsword is the most straight forward weapon in the game and the most adaptable. Sure the Dark sword and Ringed straight sword have fancy moves and lots of damage but they are predictable and take forever to recover compared to the longsword. As a noob the longsword is your best friend and if you stick with it can become a god weapon. I have a longsword +10 with chaos infusion. My main character pumps almost 700 damage with a one handed weapon. That sword has killed every enemy that can be hit with melee twice, including every boss and mini boss. I have done two runs of the game on NG+++ and NG++++ using only the Longsword I got as a default weapon. Any fool can be great with a Dark sword or a ringed straight sword but when you run into someone who is great with the longsword you are screwed. Think about it this way if Artorais, The nameless king, and the dancer of the boreal valley had the most terrifying three-way ever they would produce the Longsword..... or the hardest boss fight to ever exist in a videogame. in short, If you want a weapon for every situation the longsword is the King of versatility.

                                                                                                          From 50-60 DEX, it gains 12 points, while from 60-70 DEX, it gains 24 points!
                                                                                                          And it will continuously gains 2 points for each DEX after 70 until 77 DEX.

                                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                                            • Anonymous

Heavy infused at 56 strength and it's hitting 380AR, which is perfect. A heavy Broad Sword hits harder at 408AR, but the reach and moveset of the Long Sword is a better trade off imo. I love using this with the Fume Ultra Greatsword.
