Sellsword Twinblades are a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Paired scimitars used by certain sellswords. The scimitars' sharp blades make for effective slashing attacks, but fare poorly against metal armor and tough scale-covered hides.

With a scimitar in each hand, the wielder can vary their onslaught with unique left-handed attacks when in the proper stance.

Skill: Spin Slash
Slice into foes with a large spinning motion, and continue spinning to transition into a strong attack



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Buffed and Infused.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • Can perform a parry when one handed in the left hand.
  • This weapon has a high DPS when the paired attacks are used.
  • The Alpha version originally had the Legion Scimitars, which behaved like this particular weapon. It was eventually dropped in the final game, being replaced by this weapon.
  • Based off of a real life weapon called the shashka, which is a Russian hiltless backsword used during the 17~19th century.

 

Softcaps and Scaling

  • 10/16 = 237 = Base Stats
  • 10/40 = 323 = Dex Softcap
  • This weapon receives minimal scaling from Strength



Location/Where to Find

  • Starting equipment for the Mercenary
  • Found behind the Black Knight in the swamp area in the Road of Sacrifices. Spawning at the Halfway Fortress bonfire, go down past the Lycanthrope Hunters and stick to the right going forward until you find an entrance to a destroyed Keep. Head left and past the Black Knight. The Twinblades are down the hallway on the right. 
  • Fextra Video location (starts at 1h 5m 47s)

      After a couple of years I went for a 3rd run and wanted to try dex build. I did try something else but sharp sellsword are just the best considering how fast they are. Chaos blade? Nope. Murakumo? Nope. Dancer's twinblades? Nein.
      So endgame is found myself with these and I cannot stretch enough how easy this run was for me.

        The feeling when you choose Mercenary as your starting class and you end up with the best weapon in the game right from the start

          If you're using the R1/L1 -> L2 -> L1 true combo in PvP, you can also follow it up with the full Weapon Art and likely rollcatch them with the end of it if they don't roll directly away from you. It also has the upside of blendering them if they try to attack/parry instead of trying to get away, and protecting you from attempting backstabbers if you're dealing with a gank.

            The Winblades. Fast, reliable, and putting out a good amount of damage make it an incredibly user friendly weapon. Slap your preferred buffs on, and watch healthbars be evaporated.

              So um, my Chaos Sellsword Twinblades +7 have E/C/B/B scaling, not E/C/C/C as the chart says. (game version 1.15)

              • Anonymous

                Just killed Nameless King with this weapon. Dark infused + two handed deals an enormous amount of damage in a quick span of time. It's definitely the Meltsword Winblades for PvE. It's even better when infused with a Sharp Gem to scale with DEX...

                Sucks for PvP tho. Easy to parry and predictable.

                  Question: People say that straight swords in general are OP, but the in speed runs that I have seen, runners always go for sharp SSTB. Do these blades just have more DPS or is it more a routing thing for speed runs?

                    stupid question, it's better this or the warden twinblades? i'm doing a pure dex build so i wanna go sharp

                    • Anonymous

                      These consume less stamina than, at least, the Warden Twinblades. At 20 Endurance I could L1/LB slash 5 times with Sellwords and only 4 times with the Wardens.

                        More cancer then murky if you do running L1 R1 L2 L1. The R1 after running L1 is fast enough to avoid any punish and if someone tries they get full

                            im starting to think dex weapons are the best ones for pve in the whole saga, in ds1 we had the monstrous uchigatana , in ds2 the overpowered rapiers, and in ds3 these things...

                              If you lack pvp skills but stil want to win, put this on and gank with running L1 L2 L1. Good job, Miyazaki is proud of you.

                                      I like to carry a second set of these in my offhand. When I get invaded, I'll go from the dual-wield to one in each hand and parry with the offhand. Catches a lot of people off-guard.

                                        Good against bosses.

                                        However, if you want to farm concords, use the warden twinblades. You can put minimal strength and dex and set luck to 99.

                                          if you dont want to farm 30 concord kepts for the hypermode build, just use lightning blade. it might not look as cool, but offers about the same damage(depends on your build). simply reallocate so that you have high faith and not mix with intelligence, and use a pure faith scale talisman, like canvas talisman, or anything with high spell buff. hope this helped, and i will tell you, it is NOT worth the hours of farming from those knights. I got close to 2 million souls and only 3 concord kepts

                                            Amazing w sharp infusions,one of the best dmg output w l1 spams in pve. Also good in pvp though beware of parries and atck from behind instead of backstabbing since backstab doesn't do that much from this weapon.

It's range and damage are both dogshit, has no hyper armor AND it's parriable, only value is the L1+WA true combo but that's literally it. Would've loved to see this baby at least have hyper armor in its WA

                                                      Pros:

                                                      1. insane DPS and I cant underline this more :). l1 with pontiff ring is all you need.

                                                      2. good moveset in general and good running atack

                                                      3. insanely strong with buffs and infusions cause l1 hits twice for both pvp and pve, in pvp a skilled player can kill his opponent faster than a UGS can.

                                                      cons:

                                                      1. low range

                                                      Best dps weapon and boss weapon in the game hands down. Pretty good in pvp as well. l1 atack makes this weapon very strong with dex faith or dex int builds cause either darkmoon blade/lightning blade/crystal magic weapon will hit the target twice with a single swing (less damage per hit but still ). Pure dex builds work as well. It s damage and moveset makes it a top tier weapon in ds3 and best dex weapon in the game imo at least.

                                                        The sharp scaling on these is so good that it even gives better damage than Dark/chaos infusions on my Pyromancer. Over 100 more damage in fact. AT 40/40 int/faith 18 base Dex they give around 430 AR with Chaos infusion, but well over 500 AR with sharp + lightning blade, even higher with flame arc. This is a great option if you want a potent fast hitting weapon that is not a Dark/Chaos Lothric knight sword.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    how to be lowkey op: step 1- get a +10 sellsword twinblades // step 2- sharp gem // step 3- 40 to 50 dexterity, don't mind what the casuls say, dexterity is actually very good with weapons like this and sharp gem // step 4- get your crystal magic weapon or just magic weapon if you have not enough intelligence // step 5- just use it and watch salty strenght builds cry lmao

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      The funny thing about this weapon is that many casuls got themselves in a delusion that pvp would be as easy as pve with this weapon...I mean like, after thrashing a shhit load of them with my broken straight sword, I realized this fact. Maybe it's just because I'm too good at pvp while the majority of players out there are mostly low skill trash who are making this weapon looks like shiit. But still, I'm sure you get my point.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        also, the jumping attack (one-handed and two-handed R2 of this weapon) is harder to stun/stagger even if you have low poise, because you are in the air, so the only thing that could stun/stagger you would be a strong attack, maybe a well-landed mace or greatsword attack if you have low poise, but if you have high poise like 60+ poise on a full havel set though... oh boi, only a ledo's great hammer could possibly stagger your R2 when in mid-air, the same thing goes for the club and reinforced club jumping attacks

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          its also worth to mention that this weapon is very hard to parry except for maybe the R1 two-handed attack which you can parry normaly but not too easily, and the one-handed R1 that is a bit harder than the two-handed but still not actually hard, but the R2 attacks are hard as ***** to parry and the L1 is nearly impossible if not impossible at all, because half of the animation for the R2 attack is a jump and you cant parry a jumping/plunging attack, the club and reinforced club jumping attack is an example of it, and when you can parry its actually hard and require nearly-perfect timing, while the L1 is an attack with two weapons at the same time, and you JUST cant parry a double-weapon attack at all

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

(not the tutorial area, the one with lothric knights and mostly scrub undead) using the sellsword twinblades, and im having an issue with timing opening attacks and not being interrupted by enemies before i connect. as it is, its my first time playing without a shield/sword setup, and while i have a shield on my back, i would prefer not to have use it just bc i cant time my swings right. any suggestions? and fyi, yes im casual, but im TRYING to 'get gud' lol

If you use a Sharp infusion +10 and 60+ dex plus Lloyd's Sword Ring + Pontiff's Right Eye and a Curved Wolf Greatsword at your back you can defeat anything on PVE .

                                                                                        • Anonymous

Why do you always have to ad a weapon to your games that makes almost every other weapon look like a wooden stick in comparison when it comes to fighting bosses.....? And give it such a nice moveset too..? And you can get them right at the start! Like the Crescent Falchion, the Great Scythe, the Rapier and the Saw Cleaver/Spear back in the day? These and the Warden Twinblades have the best looking moveset out of all the weapons and feel so good to use, are very responsive and do insane damage to bosses once you know how to use them properly. The only problem is that i feel like a *****ing scrub because almost no other weapon can match them no matter the stats. This is a starter weapon for *****s sake! Being able to use them at SL1 does not make it any better. Maybe i should stop upgrading them and maybe break them so i can still enjoy the moveset while feeling better about myself.
