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. 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. 
  • 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 18sp 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 Long Sword has thrusting R2 attacks.

      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

                I literally played through the entire game with this with a lightning gem fully upgraded. also got me through my second play through. It's kinda sad but the long sword can be a beast

                    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?

                              Good for any occasion. Whether it be for fashion or practical purposes, you can always rely on the Longsword.

                                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
