Lothric Knight Sword is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



A well-crafted straight sword designed for thrusting attacks, wielded by the venerable Knights of Lothric.

The Knights of Lothric, with their drakes, once crushed anything that threatened their shores. Of course, that was a long, long time ago.

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 Infused and Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • Moveset is similar to the Balder Side Sword from Dark Souls, with thrusting strong attacks.
  • Has a longer reach than the Long Sword.
  • The thrusting moves are especially effective in damage trading with the Leo Ring on. 
  • Receives S Scaling on Faith at +9 when infused with Lightning Gem.
  • One of only two Straight Swords in the game with 110 critical modifier, the other being the Shortsword.
  • This sword is excellent in PVP due to its long reach, thrust attacks and critical modifier. Also, its AR is on the higher side compared to other Straight Swords. Works well with either the Leo Ring or the Hornet Ring.

Lore

Their Prince Lothric may have been based on Berserk's Griffith Griffith Being Carried likely also the inspiration for Dark Sun Gwyndolin. (read article)

        I kinda feel bad for killing people with it, but I always carry one around as a backup to kill casters and cheesy dagger users. Works wonders

          @the guy below me: It depends on what you're going for. It seems like you're wanting to be a heavy meleer, so you'll want vgr for hp, end for stamina, vit for armor and str for damage. Just focus on finding a weapon you want to use first, get the base str/dex you need to weild it and then focus on the other stats. People usually go to 40 vgr, 30-40 end if the build allows, maybe 30 vit or just use prisoner's chain (It's a ring) and Ring of favor for for equip load and 50 str. If going full str, go 50, if you want str and dex go 40/40. Heavy infusion if you go full str, refined infusion if you got str/dex. You can use bundles/resins to buff.

            What stats do I need to use I've been playing DS since 1 but I've never passed any of them and I always get confused which stats to upgrade when it comes to holding heavier weapons and armor

              compare broadsword, LK and LKS, LKS has more reach but has the longest frame LK could spam most hits in terms of stamina

                Is everyone lying about this sword? This is my first playthrough i have an astora straight sword +6 and a lothric knight sword +6 and the knight sword sucks in comparasion, i managed to kill pontiff relatively easy in 6 tries with the astora sword, i have 35 vigor, 30 endurance, 18 strength, 18 dexterity, 12 faith and the rest are the default stats for the knight, What should i level up? Do i need to upgrade more the sword?

                  I chose this with refined infusion on my first play through since I just wanted to be a knight and accidentally became a tryhard

                    This is easily one of the best weapons in the entire game, it carried me through my entire playthrough. It has great reach, gets amazing scaling with infusions, and deals a lot of damage. If you're curious what build I'm running: SL 125 Cleric Vigor: 35 Attunement: 30 Endurance: 32 Vitality: 7 Strength: 12 Dexterity: 18 Intelligence: 7 Faith: 60 Luck: 13 R1: Lightning Lothric Knight Sword (511 AR) L1: Blessed Caestus (Simple is also a great infusion) L2: Yorshka's Chime (PVE)/Canvas Talisman (PVP) Armor: Sunless Veil Sunless Armor Sunless Gauntlets Sunless Leggings Rings: Ring of the Sun's Firstborn Morne's Ring Sage Ring Lightning Clutch Ring (PVE)/Hornet Ring (PVP) Spells: (Very situational, but a standard loadout I liked that is also geared towards PVP) Lightning Arrow Lightning Storm Lightning Spear Lightning Stake

                      Just because i like more the dark longsword only because the better two handed R2, to me this is the best lightning infused weapon (or crystal)

                        For the ones that say that their sharp lothric Knight sword doesn't have S scaling on dex it is because you need to upgrade it to +10
