Valorheart is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3. It is part of the Ashes of Ariandel DLC.



Weapon once wielded by the Champion of the Undead Match. A special paired set consisting of a broad sword and a lion shield.

The champion fought on, without rest, until he lost his mind. In the end, only his page and a lone wolf stayed at his side.

Skill: Lion Stance

While in stance, use normal attack to thrust forward with shield up, and strong attack to execute a shield bash with a lion's roar.



Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused or Buffed.
  • Upgrades with Twinkling Titanite.
  • When two-handing the weapon will automatically block at the beginning of the first R1, Roll R1, Jump R2, WA R1, and WA R2.
  • The jumping attack of this weapon is very fast and has very little recovery frames unlike other jumping attacks making it hard to punish. It can be used immediately after a roll, WA R1 but has a tiny delay frame after a charged R2 and WA R2 making it annoying to chain. Explanations.
  • Jump R2, Charge R2, R2 and WA R1 will proc the Leo ring's counter thrust dmg.
  • The WA R2 can be used for guard breaking.

 

Softcaps & Scaling:

  • 12/12 = 244 AR = Base Stats
  • 40/12 = 297 AR = Str Softcap
  • 12/40 = 333 AR = Dex Softcap
  • 40/40 = 386 AR = Quality Build

      The block resistance isn’t much to write home about, but the fact that it blocks while attacking makes it nice for pvp. Just be aware that an enemy with good stability can out-tank you.

        This is almost purely a pvp weapon, in my opinion. Its moveset, used wisely, can very effectively outmanuever more standard weapons. Its damage and reach, however, render it fairly ineffectual against many in-game enemies.

          What I began to realize about this weapon is its ability to artificially "poise" through almost any single attack. After playing a few games of pvp (a destroying a Havel Monster with it), I remembered that when you block with a shield you are left unfazed and can attack (unless your guard is broken). Because of this mechanic, with the first R1 primarily, you can block any hit with the right amount of damage and proceed to hit them. For example, in that Havel Monster fight, the guy would go for a hit with the dragon's tooth, but I would shield the hit, losing some extra stamina from the block, and my attack would continue for my full combo. This is all very good said and done but it does have some draw backs: if you don't have enough stamina then your guard will break and they can get a Ripostle, and if you aren't careful with the timing you may be the one being comboed.

            should have made this weapon a lance/greatshield combo plus a nice WA and L1 moveset. But I guess another straight sword is fine too...

              Might be because I'm retarded, but I think you can guard break the user while they're attacking (because there are block frames).

              I was fighting the Gravetender, and tried to kick them. They then lunged towards me, but before their sword made contact, I broke their guard.

                Noob here. Why would anyone use a weaker weapon that does only 300 damage when he can use a weapon that does 700+ damage, like the Greatsword, e.g.?

                Also, what is AR?

                  Correction. The weapon art R2 will almost guaranteed break the guard of anyone using a medium shield or smaller even at full or near full stamina.

                        So we didn't fight the Champion? Description said that at the end only his page and lone wolf are by his side. Champion's Gravetender is his page & Gravetender Greatwolf is his lone wolf?

                          I have been using this weapon recently for pvp and it works quite well. Managed to get 400 damage after a rebirth and the jumping attacks (2H) are very good for roll catching. You can get 5 hit combos off if your lucky. Now I just do torch fights.

                            WA R2 bash has some surprising range. The lion mirage hits them, your don't actually need to hit them with the shield to connect. Low damage but it's something.

                              This is a really fun weapon to use, it's something about bashing people's head in with a shield that really gets me. The only problem I have had with it is the damage and how hard twinkling titanite is to find. God I love this weapon though.
