The Avelyn is a crossbow in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

An extremely rare rapid-firing crossbow.
Fire three successive bolts. Inflict heavy damage by making all three shots count.
Fiorenza, the richest merchant in all of Volgen, recreated this lost weapon after reading of it in an old book.


Characteristics Edit

Like it's Dark Souls counterpart, the Avelynn is a burst fire crossbow that fires three bolts in quick succession. Though weak on their own, hitting with all three bolts can triple the listed attack rating, making the Avelyn deceptively powerful. Though the reload animation is relatively fast, proper care must be taken when firing as it's impossible to evade incoming attacks until the reload cycle is complete. With the implication of Power Stancing, it's possible to fire 6 crossbow bolts; Allowing a higher Damage Per Second.


  • Requires Titanite to upgrade.
  • A +10 Avelyn has a base damage of 170.
