Sunlight Straight Sword is a Unique Weapon in Dark Souls 3.
Straight sword imbued with the strength of lightning.
This featureless long sword contains the very power of the sun. Perhaps is a relic of one-sided adoration.
Skill: Oath of Sunlight
Raise the sword aloft when praising the sun to boost attack and damage absorption for self and allies in vicinity. The warriors of sunlight are co-operators from an ancient age.
Notes and Tips:
- Cannot be Infused, but can be Buffed
- Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
- All weapons have motion values assigned to each attack, which are modifiers to AR that are associated with the attack being used.
- The Sunlight Straight Sword has a range of 18sp on the 1h 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 Sunlight Straight Sword has thrusting R2 attacks
- The weapon is a natural choice for faith builds due to its natural scaling, and since its Weapon Art works similarly to Sacred Oath it also makes for a good buff weapon.
