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.
  • All weapons have motion values assigned to each attack, which are modifiers to AR that are associated with the attack being used.
    • The Lothric Knight Sword has a motion value of 220 on backstab, 275 on riposte, and 66 + 247.5 on Hornet Ring riposte. The motion value of a backstab with a straight sword does not change with Hornet Ring.

 

  • The Lothric Knight Sword has a range of 18.9sp 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 Lothric Knight Sword has thrusting R2s when 1h.
  • One of only two Straight Swords in the game with 110 critical modifier, the other being the Shortsword.

Location/Where to Find

  • Dropped by Lothric Knights (Can be easily farmed down the stairs from the Tower on the Wall bonfire. The knights outside of the Dancer of the Boreal Valley bonfire may have a very low drop rate or may not drop at all.)
  • Sold by Greirat for 4000 souls, after pillaging Irithyll Valley.

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)

      Guys if you cannot parry this weapon through the users McDonald’s wifi, the best tactic is to simply stoop to their level and equip a straight sword of your own and spam r1 right back. Believe it or not they probably will have no idea what to do and become frustrated with their very own play style. Be sure to have dung pies equip to your hot bar, as these are essential for putting straightsword spamming wifi users in their place. Happy gaming.

        Alright I’ve been a warrior of sunlight since launch and here’s my 2 cents. The weapon is good, but caps out at the users skill level. So many hosts lost because they spam R1 into the invader’s shield and get 1-shot riposted a second later. So many hosts dying because an invader has this and they try to parry with a medium shield. This weapon is far from a crutch. It’s just good at all skill levels. Praise the Sun!

          The Balder Swag Sword of DS3. I think near launch sharp dex scaling at +10 was a B. Nice to see they pumped it up to S

              Hmm i'm not actually sure it has a A scaling in faith/int with dark/chaos imbue more like a B. Since i use it on my pyro may've been patched since but not sure. ^^"

                It's not OP. The playstyle associated with this weapon is OP. Spacing abusers is very common nowadays and you simply can't just make a tryhard stop acting like a tryhard. They won't be fun to fight, but if you beat them at their own game and wait for them, they'll get impatient and dig their own grave. Out-passive them. It's a dirty tactic but they've already sucked the fun out of the fight anyway so who cares lol. This sword is very good and that's obviously why people use it

                  I disagree with people saying this weapon is overpowered in PvP. The only way you are going to be consistently beaten by this weapon is if you have no idea how to parry. Hornet Ring+Ur favorite parrying item (I recommend a shield with the additional parry frames)+fully upgraded chaos dagger = invaders black crystal'in out of my world when they invade me. The moveset of this weapon is very easy to time, I recommend practicing on the strong red eyed lothric knights for a better challenge and once you get it down no one will ever trouble you with this sword again.

                    very good meta weapon. Although it's easily countered using a great hammer and timing your attack between theirs. let them start their swing, go for your first one and you'll definitely get a second one too. needless to say you need above 25 poise to help complement your Hyper Armor. Have fun

                        A dark or chaos build's wet dream is what this sword equals. I wish I had researched it a little more before making my dark and chaos falchions. They are still real good but would have been worth putting the extra 5 points into dex i think. oh well, I will grind out some more gems and shards. This gets S scaling for blessed, crystal, and lightning gems as well at max upgrade or just A scaling?

                          I love this sword, my absolute favorite all round weapon in the game. It's not a great raw weapon, but sharp or refined is great, and it's my go to for any scaling elemental infusion. It gets CCAA scaling with dark and chaos, and S scaling for faith I believe as well. I use it in PvP as well to break guards from heavy shields. But as stated, against good players you're going to get parried all day long, so I always have a backup.

                            I will concede that the last poster makes the only real legit complaint about this weapon, or any weapon for that matter in PvP, and that is the intentional use of lag to win against other players. If you do this, you should be banned from PvP, plain and simple. Although when I think of this I hear the voice of HK-47 from Knights of the Old Republic when he says: "Cheating seems to be a relevant term only when one is caught in the act. Otherwise it is viewed as intelligence, no?" Hahaha, I love that game and that character, sounds like something Hunter S. Thompson would say, definitely was part of his philosophy

                              Trying learning to parry guys. A good place to learn is in the area near the first boss and where you later fight the dancer. There are a lot of lothric knights patrolling the area. Kill the one with the spear first to get him out of the way and then you get fight the ones wielding this sword one at a time. I recommend using the Caestus. But the buckler, target shield (my favorite) or the small leather shield if you don't have the stats for the others. These shields have some extended parry frames so it makes it a little easier. But the Caestus only weighs 0.5 and if you bless it you can get some health back in the process. It's funny, whenever I take my Caestus out people usually equip another weapon. A lot of people seem to play a bit trashy these days, but this will help you turn the tide. Hope this helps.
