Shotel is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Broadly curved sword known as the favored weapon of the tragic Embraced Knight.

Shaped to sneak around the defenses of shields, this sword requires ample dexterity to wield effectively.

Skill: Spin Slash
Slice into foes with a large spinning motion, and follow with strong attack for a spinning vertical-slash.



Notes and Tips:

  • Can be Buffed and Infused
  • Upgrades with Titante
  • Can aquire two Shotels per playthrough.
  • When used in the left hand, the weapon art turns into a parry.
  • In place of kicking, pushing the left stick forward and light attacking at the same time activates a unique cartwheel dodge attack. The Horsehoof Ring has no affect on this attack.
  • Has innate shield pierce: 65% on heavy attacks, 35% on the first and second spin of the weapon skill, 55% on the last spin of the weapon skill, and 15% on all other attacks.

      Attention to everyone who disliked my comment below - before disliking please test 2h r1 on shotel and you will see that it shares the same speed with heavy curved swords despite its flip animation instead of a kick. 2h r1 attacks on pkcs and scimitar are faster. 1h r1 attacks have the same speed as the scimitar and pkcs though, but i think no one actually uses fast curved swords 1 handed

        So it is basically a curved sword with flip animation that should have had fast attacks like the other flip curved swords, but doesn't have for some unknown reason. Carthus shotel has more range and damage with the same attack speed, so in fact this shotel is useless :/ Prove me wrong

          Amazing weapon that hardly gets any use due to being outshined by the other fast curved swords. We all can agree that PKCS is undeniable tied with Demon's Scar for the best curved sword/best weapon in the game, which both are used for different scenarios, but I think that this weapon is just barely behind those two, at least in the curved sword department. It is more often compared to Scimitar, which doesn't make sense since it is almost a straight upgrade. While the Scimitar boasts higher damage in sheer numbers, the Shotel makes up for that with better range and it even includes innate shield piercing. Obviously it is outranged by PKCS and lacks a long range weapon art like it, but it has a few redeeming qualities to grab your interest.

          First, it out damages PKCS on a base strength 70 dex build (albeit by a few points) when both builds reach 120. Second, it has the natural shield piecing capabilities, which helps give it an edge against Black Knight Shield meta. Third, it can be used extremely well as a one handed weapon, with a combo to boot. Just like a straight sword, you can use R1->R1->R2 as a pseudo combo, along with the Weapon Art->R2 combo. Fourth, it has amazing wakeup potential after backstabs and ripostes, by using your R2 after they fall onto the ground.

          With all of this information, I didn’t even mention this weapon on a Dark build, further boosting its shield pierce. With this in mind, a Dark Shotel also out damages a Dark Scimitar (Funny how they trade places). After taking all of this into account, it completely out damages PKCS and can be used in conjunction with Demon’s Scar if you wanted to mix it up. But many people pair PKCS with an offhand crossbow, so that is another hurdle which may be difficult for a pure dex build to surpass, but I think this weapon might actually be in a three way tie for the best weapon in the game.

            Would’ve been cool if you could’ve bought the two from Patches and then be able to combine them at Ludleth like how you can with the Twin Prince’s Greatsword. Idk, just a thought.

              Range feels very short, but dark infused will scare shield huggers into an early grave. Pair with a chaos dagger for best results.

                Wanna see 50-80% of someones hp dissapear? Dark infusion (or sharp+buff) WA into R2 combo. also eats shields ontop of high stamina damage. Your welcome, this is now more meta then the pontiff curved.

                  Saw the update. Figured my favorite lightning weapon combo would be useful again.Whipped it out in pvp. After upgrading to a +5. Did 40 damage through a kite shield. If I hadn't already purchased a season pass I'd just leave the monotony to from and their quality raw weapon bs.

                      I love this weapon, if only they just changed the backstab/riposte animation. It's kinda immersion breaking. Maybe swap it with the GS riposte animation?

                        Based on the damage calculator ( http://trogg.net/DS3Calc/ ) the shotel is the highest AR curved sword with the lighter attacks and backflip kick. Am I wrong?

                          I think out of all curved swords, this one has the least amount of stamina usage. Its AR and move set also seems better compared to the scimitar but still uses less stamina.
