Spotted Whip is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.



Whip mottled with venomous-looking spots. Favored by some female pyromancers of the Great Swamp.

As its noxious appearance would suggest, damage from this whip poisons its victims, slowly but surely guiding them to their deaths.

Skill: Impact
Strike from the left to evade shields and deal a stinging blow that temporarily slows stamina recovery. The shackles of bondage lie deep in the hearts of all humankind.



Notes and Tips:

  • Reinforced using Titanite.
  • Cannot be Infused, but can be Buffed
  • Like all the other whips, it cannot be parried but also cannot riposte, backstab, or plunge attack.
  • Like all whips it cannot be deflected off shields, walls, or buffed players. This allows for it to attack through walls.

    • Why is Dark Souls 2 not mentioned at all here in this entry? The Spotted Whip is from DS2 and this page should acknowledge that. In DS2 this weapon was the strongest poisonous effect (I say "poisonous effect" because it inflicted toxic buildup) in the game iirc. If you powerstanced two poison infused Spotted Whips (yes, it is possible to infuse it with poison, lol) while wearing Sanctum Gauntlets and the Rat Covenant Ring you could instantly toxic some enemies and other players. It was beautiful. I've never used it in DS3 though.

        Notched Whip can be infused with Blood Gem but Spotted Whip can't be infused with Poison Gem ... Okay ... WTF

        • Pretty stupid for people like me 1000 plus hours in ds3 and 1500 between the first 2 n I forget to summon this ***** every time. Really irritating. And u can’t get the whip without summoning for odk which is big dumb dumb poopy head

            You can find this by the Pyromancer's cage above the Cliffside bonfire if it's not by the Old Demon King entrance.

              Is there any point to using this over a Notched Whip, since you can just infuse the Notched Whip with poison so it does both poison and bleed.

                Do you guys know wether or not a whip does dotted hits? Can you accidently hit someone else with a whip or do you only hit the target if it strikes? This would be very interesting to know....

                  and i was wondering what could be the worst weapon in this game just like a scythe with an impossible to proc frostbite effect>poison>whip

                    You have to survive the fight also. Downed the boss but I died on the second to last hit because I got greedy. Cuculus definitely survived because he finished ODK for me. Got the boss soul, the fog gate disappeared and the bonfire spawned in but no Whip at the cage

                      Well, at least you don't have to kill that thing - just keep an NPC alive. Hmm. On second thoughts I'd rather the former.

                      • And here I thought there weren't any new items to find. How interesting.Good thing she's so helpful in that fight, what with all her poison and stuff.

                        • It's as if the devs didn't think this boss fight didn't already have enough challenge so they make you micro-manage if you want to get the weapon. Not that I'd be using it, but I like collecting everything in these games.
