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 34.8389xl 1h R1 and 34.526xl 2h R1.
  • The Lothric Knight Sword has thrusting R2s.
  • One of only two Straight Swords in the game with 110 critical modifier, the other being the Shortsword.
  • This weapon is incredibly powerful due to its good damage, long reach, great moveset, and versatile Weapon Art. Furthermore, it infuses very well, making it good on almost every build but Strength.

      I'm farming this sword for my pyromancer and it doesn't drop f*ck. The knight under Tower of the wall bonfire have droped 6 crosbows and the armor set with several parts repeated and still not a single sword.

        can I use this weapon on my quality build? I realy wanted to make a knight build, improving dexterity and strength status.

          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

            sad that it doesn't scale well on strength! quite unfortunate personally since i like to boost all my points into the strength stat :(

            • Anonymous

              My first character was a strength build, had a lot of fun with it. I heard a lot about dark builds and was told this was the weapon of choice that everyone hates facing, so naturally I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I never really have problems in PvP facing people with this weapon because I find straight swords real easy to parry. So i made a character based on using a dark and chaos version of this, (510 AR) popped a few extra points into strength so I could use the black knight shield figuring that would really tick people off and i have no idea what all the drama is about. I'm no doubt a noob with this build and using SS's in general, but I was getting parried left and right using this thing, and weapons that use the perseverance WA seem to be able to counter spammers if you are not good with parrying, although you should be if you do a look of dueling. I mean its definitely a good weapon, great reach and best SS moveset, really good on my Pyro in PvE but in PvP I thought it was pretty average, just like the long sword but with a longer range and slightly better moveset and scaling. Although the 110 critical definitely sets it apart. But I do not understand where the hate comes from and I was really trying to play like a punk too. hahahaha. I dunno, maybe if my skill level was higher I would do better with it, but i thought all the anger comes from this being a weapon that requires very little skill.

                The notes specifically mention one-handed thrust heavy attacks, for the record it has thrusting heavies when 1h & 2h

                Perfect moveset, stance, buffable, long as sin. This thing is versatile even by straight sword standards. Miyazaki even stepped in to add an extra 10 critical before the game shipped, the complete lunatic

                    Faith builds benefit more from the sunlight straight sword, if you are playing faith you are going to want to use SSS not LKS

                    sidenote: lightning infusion spell and dark infusion spell is definitely the way to go when using SSS

                      Am I missing something here? After running a bunch of calcs the long sword outdamages this on pretty much every build and has the same r1 r1 r2 combo. Idk how accurate this wiki’s range testing is but according to it, long sword only has .9 units less range.

                      I don’t know man. Between all that and the lower usage requirements LKSS just kinda seems like a worse long sword. Though LKSS does look cooler for fashion

                        The R1 spammers can be bothering some times, but de phantom range/ network is the real issue, this shid outrange almost everything.

                          you guys call it meta because everyone uses it, but it gets outperformed by ringed knight straight sword (quality build) or gotthard's twinswords (any build) in the hands of a good player. and that's just mentioning other straight swords, there are other much stronger setups (hello pkcs and murky :))))))))) )
                          it is good, but far from overpowered, simply a strong all-rounder that is decently effective even if wielded by a bad player, and very popular for this reason.

                                Is the Refined enhancement worth dumping my Strength into for a 40/40 quality build, or would it be more effective to just toss a Sharp enhancement on LKS for a 12/40 Dex build and dump my 30 points elsewhere?

                                  Cosplaying a Lothric Knight right now. The armor is way heavier then I thought it was, but it's pretty fun so far. I'm going to start getting some miracles ready.

                                    The Lothric knights are masters of illusion in lore, and it is this mastery that allows them to hide 90% of their 6 meter long sword.

                                      I know all you baby wannabe try hards think this is the ultimate meta weapon, but it's actually complete trash compared to the all mighty PKCS! While all you LKSS scrubs are mindlessly r1 spamming away with this inferior "meta weapon" that's way slower than the PKCS and going for predictable parries I'll easily out space you and dead angle my swings to avoid your obvious noob parries then point you down after easily killing you with my PKCS to show you what the real meta weapon is!

                                        Probably the best straight sword in the game. It has S scaling in Dex/sharp, lightning/faith and intelligence/crystal and simple, including the BB in refined and 2 A scalings in dark and fire. (Sorry for the long comment ;)

                                              is it best to have a refined infusion for a 30/30 - 40/40 quality build? I saw the sharp infusion has a S in dex, but I'm sticking to a quality build.

                                                  Haven't played this game since 2017 before all the nerfing and crap. I'm making a dark/chaos build and heard this was the go to weapon for that because of A scaling in both intel and faith. I have only 18 dex and still have a 490 AR. Only thing is that it really sucks in PvP because it's so easy to parry, or maybe I am not doing something right, because I see all the drama on this page. I just get parried all day long with it and have a low percentage of wins in PvP with it. I'm much better with heavier strength based weapons. So I have been using this in PvE and the Astora UGS in PvP which also eats wicked A scaling in intel faith. Never played a dark build before but its a lot of fun.

                                                        I remember when I got the Balder Side Sword to drop from my 2nd Balder Knight that I killed in DS1. I came here to see if it was decent. It turns out, it was deemed both a DS1 myth due to the low drop rate and also deemed "cancer" because the moveset was "too OP". I used it anyway and I adored it. It wasn't my main but it was Ol Reliable for close quarters stabbing. Fast forward to DS3 and it looks like LKS is the new BSS. Top tier dex weapon, low drop rate... It even has the same moveset as BSS from DS1...and the same level of contempt you get from people here for using it! I can't wait to use this forever and ever now! Thanks for the info. Try parrying if you're one of the salty ones. Anyone halfway decent at parrying wrecks people using this moveset because it is basic and predictable.

                                                            Can this weapon launch enemies in the air? I’m not sure where I heard it but it’s been bugging me and I just need a simple confirmation, even though in hindsight how could
                                                            it lmao.

                                                              I like how in the comments meta tryhard morons fight with other meta tryhard morons and accuse each other of being meta tryhard moron scrubs :D
                                                              "Clyymore/Lapp you scrubs!" "No, only pkcs and git gud" "I can f your mom with LKS"

                                                              • I like this weapon, but I don't exactly like straight swords. Going against a good straight sword user with this can be frustrating though. If they're high damaging but not greedy and you can't parry, they'll probably backstab and that's gonna SUCK. In the right hands, you could slice a mountain in half with this MONSTER.

                                                                  If I'm being honest,the longsword beats this sword out in every single damage infusion. Even dex which is weird because its an S,the 110 crit is mediocre and it looses the longswords heavy heavy true combo. The length advantage doesn't exist,if thats your need the Gothards are your girls. This weapon is a bit of a trap,its good, but not longsword good.I mean at least it looks nice.

                                                                      Not the strongest compared to other weapons, but man it's fun to use since it doesn't drain my stamina too badly.
                                                                      I'm still trying new weapons, so maybe a new one will become my main eventually.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        Pros:

                                                                        1. very good moveset and range with sweeping r1s, thrust r2s, good utility WA with hyper armor

                                                                        2. good damage, lower than both long sword and broadsword with same infusions, don t be fooled by S scalling, but the difference is very small

                                                                        3. can be buffed and infused and works very well with all infusions except heavy, so a very versatile weapon

                                                                        4. good r1-r1-r2 combo. also r2 can be delayed to roll catch.

                                                                        cons:

                                                                        1. high stats needed to wield 11/18 str dex, much more than long sword, but this wont be an issue for dex or quality builds, just for elemental infusions

                                                                        other:

                                                                        One of the best weapons in the game. It excells in pvp because of better range and moveset compared to other SS. It does a good job in pve as well, but if one just wants a SS just for pve, long sword is by far the better option with lower stat requirments, ligher and higher damage, while having a very good moveset as well. Lkss is a very versatile weapon for pvp and can be used as both primary and backup weapon. 18 dex is a comintment though for pure magic users so they have to balance the extra points compared to long sword with slightly increased range lkss has over ls. Still if 18 dex fit your build, then I clearly recommend to use lkss as your primary ss.

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

UGS are so much more fun compared, just parry and r1 spamming degenerate and i’ll win every time. And if u do somehow die to this weapon, parry.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

I simply get parried left and right, then thats usually followed by a chaos dagger + hornet ring riposte and it game over in humiliating fashion. I'm not spamming r1 either, this sword just seems to be a parry lovers fantasy or maybe I'm just being matched up against really good players. I've had some success using the straight sword that does frost damage, but not this one. I don't understand what the fuss is about.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

If you cannot figure out how to beat or at least compete with straight sword users in 2020 dark souls world, your going to hate playing golf in retirement.
