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.

      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?

              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

                I love this sword. It has great stats and speed but this is not the reason i use it. I use it because i love the sight of desperation and anger it brings. There is nothing that soothes my experience more than watching a player gradually giving up on his "approved" playing style and throw emotes at me in a desperate attemt at stoping me as i cut him down like the weed he is.

                    "you are defending a weapon with phantom range, insane damage and a ton of speed"- phantom range is everywhere and there are plenty of weapons that reach farther, everything has about the same damage at meta lvl so for you to complain about that is just funny (everything kills you in 4-5 hits with a few specific exceptions like EGS or HCGS that can like 3 shot you, LKS not being an exception) and it has basic straight sword speed... As i said, equip a good shield and straight swords are literally doing chip damage. Equip a weapon with more range, like a spear for example and you can rek straight swords, make them follow you and turn and burn if they are outplaying you in spacing. You all ***** about how this specific straight sword is particularly OP without acknowledging that literally everyone using a straight sword is using one of the top three, not any of the trash tier. In other words, it doesn't matter that it has "this, this and this" since everyone is playing at the same difficulty and if you're not, I.E. using a slower heavy weapon, then it's on you to fight in a way that allows you to win as YOU are choosing a bad type matchup against the guy's LKS. Type matchup matters guys! Have you tried using halberds against straight swords? With enough poise (a small amount to hyperarmor through SS r1s), they rek straight swords too. The spin weapon skill is great for combos and roll catching. Honestly, turning and burning in general reks the LKS if you aren't an idiot and keep getting clipped from behind. Free aiming exploding bolts reks straight swords, though i honestly consider that ez mode as if you back pedal and do this you can win without taking damage thanks to the stun. What i'm hearing here is "i'm not going to look at the weapon logically, i'm just going to look at how many times i've died and base whether or not it's OP solely on my feelings". You can't state that a weapon is OP when i can list off normal, not even ez mode weapon, counters that you can handle it with. Yes, it looks like it has an advantage, but that because people just fight you with whatever they have on instead of switching to a good matchup, are rapiers OP because they destroy UGS wielders? No. It's just that UGS's are slow enough to be punished easily, they're only really good against other slow heavy weapons.

                      Omg, all these "it's OP" or "no skill required" comments, laughable. CAN a noob pick it up and mash r1? Yes. Is that going to do anything for them against someone with the smarts to parry or simply equip a good shield? No. This weapon isn't OP, straight swords as a class aren't OP either you whiny bandwagon babies. Straight swords are just another weapon type with it's own set of weaknesses like everything else. Obviously if you're using a slower weapon you'll have to be smart, you'll be interrupted and punished if you try to just mash r1... The reason straight swords seem "superior" is because so many use them. Straight swords are good against other straight swords, so you'll die less if you have one equipped as SO many people have them. Type matchups matter, the issue is the lack of diversity forcing more people to use the types that match well as well as the overuse of the actual ez mode weapons. To classify an entire class of weapon as "OP" is, in most cases (curved swords exempt), ridiculous. I win plenty of fights against straight sword users, i only really lose to players who use straight swords better than me. They do take skill and they're easily manageable as well. -end of rant-

                          Guys, please help. I have a Sharp Lothric Sword +10 and my strength/dex scaling is D/A. It is supposed to be an S dex scaling on sharp +10, and I don't know why it is still an A. Thanks in advance.

                            Ya know what It’s time for me to calm my salt nerves, because after becoming a pyro demon scar user I realized it’s dumb to get mad at ppl for using these weapons. After seeing salt levels rise against me using fire surge I just realized being a salt lord is stupid. Use whatever weapon ya want and plz go dislike my comment saying RKPGS were tryhard un fun weapons that should be purged bc it’s subjective plus it I realized it’s counters bore holes in it just like the edge salt that was flowing threw my veins.

                              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
