The Crystal Straight Sword is a straight sword in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

A fully crystallized straight sword. How such a weapon was created is entirely unknown.
The crystallization boosts its attack, but makes the blade brittle. The sword cannot be used for long, as it cannot be repaired.



The Crystal Straight Sword's high base damage means that at the point where it first can be bought, it will be quite powerful and effective in both the Depths and Blighttown, being about equal to a Longsword +8 in terms of attack power and moveset. However, it can't be upgraded or repaired, making it unsuitable for sustained use or high level play.  


Attack Description
Weak Attack
Horizontal swings. Can be chained.
Strong Attack
Forward thrust. Addition input allows for an upward swing.
Weak Attack
Vertical swings.
Strong Attack
Player takes two steps forward and swings horizontally. Addition input allows for another step and a horizontal swing in the opposite direction.
Jump Attack Player reverses grip on weapon and thrusts downward.
Running Attack Horizontal swing from left to right. Changes to an overhead swing when two-handing the weapon.
Rolling Attack Upward swing. Changes to a forward thrust when two-handing the weapon.
Kick Standard kick.
Weak Attack
Standard block.
Strong Attack
Horizontal swing.


As for the Crystal Greatsword, this weapon is almost never seen in PvP, due to the impossibility of reinforcing, repairing and upgrading it. When a user of this weapon is encountered, extreme caution and measures must be taken in order to survive, because it will likely be a modded version that deals around 900 damage when swung one handed, and is capable of almost killing anyone with a critical attack.
