Mail Breaker is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



A small sword made for thrusting attacks.

This hard, edgeless sword can pierce through tough armor, and boasts a deadly critical attack.

Skill: Shield Splitter
Aim carefully, and attack in a large forward lunge to pierce through enemy shields and inflict damage directly.

 

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 Mail Breaker has a motion value of 375 on backstab, 450 on riposte, and 75+437.5 on Hornet Ring riposte. The motion value of a backstab with a dagger does not change with Hornet Ring.
    • This means that aside from a difference in AR, no infusion is strictly better for ripostes, as all infusions will get the same motion value, with the only difference being AR. Use whatever infusion will net the most damage for the best results.
    • Note that Dark damage does not benefit from Hornet Ring in PvP.

 

  • The Mail Breaker has a range of 14.7sp on the 2h 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 Mail Breaker's Weapon Skill Shield Splitter will combo into a second use of Shield Splitter in PvP.

      From really hates variety and fun in their games, I suppose. Forcing us to use the same 2 weapons over and over again. Dagger looks like*****, this one is cooler looking and might be funnier to use if they didn't ***** it up

        disregarding low SLs the standard Dagger is better than this in almost every way. but the most important difference is that the Mail Breaker isn't a bright orange eyesore.

          I made a new character the other day and I noticed that a +0 Mail Breaker did more riposte/bs Damage than a +0 Rapier by quite a bit. Why? The Rapier has higher base AR and crit.

            I think there's a really good case to be made for which dagger would be preferable to use between this and the Corvian Greatknife, as a general purpose sidearm. There's three factors: critical damage following parries/guard breaks, against shields, and as a stand-alone weapon. I've tested them both +10 Lightning-infused with a 26 STR 40 DEX 30 FAITH build. For critical damage, Mail Breaker (125) takes it over Corvian Greatknife (110), but not by much, as the Mail Breaker's crit multiplier is better, but it's damage is lower; against Black Knights NG+1, Mail Breaker did 956 w/o Hornet (1187 w/ Hornet) while Corvian Greatknife did 877 w/o Hornet (1080 w/ Hornet), which is a ~10% difference. Against shields, both have WA's that avoid shields, but I found the Corvian Greatknife vastly superior for a few reasons: Blind Spot hits around their shields for 270 whereas Shield Splitter hits for 157 and Blind Spot is a much better approach as it's much faster and less telegraphed. Both daggers bounce off higher stability shields (which also gives an edge to Corvian, as starting off with Blind Spot makes an opponent much less likely to sit behind a shield, letting you R1 mash once they let it drop, whereas they'll roll the more obvious wind-up of Shield Splitter and put their shield up again) but can be spammed against lower stability ones (I haven't figured out exactly how this works, but they can chew through the Dragonhead Shields of Ringed Knights but not the Black Knight Shields of Black Knight, not entirely sure about players). As a stand-alone weapon, there's a fair bit to consider: CGK is 1 unit heavier than MB but has more damage (351 vs 328 2H on this build); CGK has much better range than MB but also has a worse R2 (this weird downward slash), which wouldn't matter too much except MB's R2 (normal thrust) is a fantastic wake-up attack following a riposte which is a major reason to have a dagger; Blind Spot is an excellent starting move and gives you options how to approach (R1 or WA) but not as a roll catcher (and often feels like the Frayed Blade WA-R1, meaning you have to hope they dodge directly back or they'll avoid it), whereas Shield Splitter is an amazing roll catcher as the timing is perfect, the direction of the lunge isn't determined until the last second and so can catch people if they roll to your left or right (but not behind, as it can only hit in a ~180 deg cone in front of you), and it combos into itself (WA-WA is a thing). If I had to weigh in personally, I'd say if you have difficulty getting aggressive and making approaches with your main hand or struggle against shields, than Corvian Greatknife would likely be a better option as it has multiple ways to approach (WA or R1 pokes) and punish, but if you're good with parries and/or are looking to finish opponents off (catching panic rolls of low HP players) then the Mail Breaker is for you. All that said, they're both absolutely excellent, infuse well with Lightning on any build, and do really well with the Leo Ring.

              until you start getting more stats, the mail breaker is superior to the dagger for criticals. it seems to be that as long as it continues to be atleast 8% (not 5 because 5% is more then you think) stronger then the daggers damage it is superior. once its base drops below that, the dagger starts to do more. So basically, lightning/fire/deep mail breaker is your twink crit weapon due to its much higher base damage

                just curious but which do you (person looking at this) think was better starting weapon for sorcerer? mail breaker or dagger?

                  Only weapon I ever needed for my all magic build! Just make the weapon "raw" and use invisibility with the sleeping dragon ring. Easy kills via PVE, cannot say for PVP for I no longer have a landline.

                  Works excellent with applied bleed pine buffs. Kills those Scorched Pyromancers fast.

                    A little surprised at how useful this has become. Excellent criticals, fast strikes, and decent reach. That and with the base buff its now only a slightly weaker raw weapon than the Corvian Greatknife with less of a stat investment.

                    All in all a good weapon for casters and honestly better than the rapier mainly because it allows for guard breaks instead of that stupid back step attack.

                      Especially for those hosts that like to be very predictable for easy parries. Stick a raw Mail breaker in your second right hand slot and get massive reposte damage. Obviously you shouldn't take this tactic with duels or anything but in an anything goes invasion it is pretty great

                      • Just an idea.14 Jun 2016 11:54  

                        Mail Breaker. It was meant to pierce through chainmail and inflict damage directly to the opponent, bypassing any "resistance" attributes. And yet one has only 130 critical bonus and shield piercing skill. Daggers need to be buffed, and in this case the choice is obvious: Mail Breaker needs to have a passive ability of bypassing one's defences. All of them. Except shields, of course. At 60/60 Strength and Dexterity it has, while +10 reiforced and Refined, an AR of 250. Half of it is negated by armor. Now it is just a toothpick. But with said upgrade one could deal 250 damage directly to Winged Knight, Aldrich, or PvP contender. 250 is not that much, however it is constant. That would make Mail Breaker worth choosing, to a certain extent (read: viable). And would make actual sense in terms of weapon's lore. Fromsoft, please.
