The Chaos Blade is a katana in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A katana of unknown origin. Damage to foes also damages its owner.
The peculiar pattern upon the blade suggests the sinister nature of this cursed blade. It is an alluring vortex, and a lonely soul.
Effect: attacks also damage the player.

AvailabilityEdit

The Chaos Blade can be obtained after trading the Old Witch Soul with Weaponsmith Ornifex for 10,000 souls. To obtain the soul, the player must defeat the Lost Sinner in NG+.

CharacteristicsEdit

Much like its original counterpart, the Chaos Blade drains health from its wielder with every successful hit. However, it deals very high damage with each swing, making it a popular choice for PvP or against tougher enemies. The two-handed strong attacks, if they connect, can inflict devastating amounts of damage in the blink of an eye, especially if the weapon is buffed with either resins or spells. 

The high damage, along with its ability to be infused and augmented, means that the Chaos Blade can be used for almost any build, providing the high Dexterity requirement and self-damage are not too off-putting. 

The Chaos Blade has the highest counter strength of all available katanas, on par with the Lances

NotesEdit

  • The self-damage will not activate when landing critical hits, such as backstabs or ripostes. It will, however, activate when striking breakable objects in the world.
  • The self-damage can be used to activate the effects of the Old Sun Ring and the Ring of Thorns; this can also be used as a rather unorthodox method of activating the Tearstone Rings.
  • The damage dealt to the wielder is always 50 HP and cannot be altered by any means.
  • Upon upgrading the Chaos Blade, the B scaling with Dexterity changes to an S.
  • The effect of the weapon can be somewhat offset through the use of passive healing sources, such as the Ring of the Evil Eye, Ring of Restoration or the Replenishment miracle.
  • Infusing the Chaos Blade with an elemental type (fire, magic, lightning, or dark) will split the damage evenly, meaning both the physical attack and the attack of the element chosen will be equal to each other. This can be both positive and negative, as the lower physical damage will result in enemies sustaining less damage if they are resistant to the element of choice. However, buffing the weapon with a spell that complements the secondary damage type (I.E. using Sunlight Blade on a Lightning Chaos Blade) will result in a much more formidable weapon for the duration of the effect.
  • Hitting an opponent while they are invulnerable, such as when rolling or interacting with certain objects, will still activate the self-damage.
