NotesEdit

  • The Dark Hand is the only base game weapon dealing Dark damage, except for the Deep Battle Axe found in the High Wall of Lothric, which is merely an infused weapon.
  • The Dark Hand's skill is similar to that of its Dark Souls counterpart, although if it lands on a non-playable character in this game, the player will enter a grab animation where they will drain out life from such character in a similar way as Darkwraiths do. However, unlike its Dark Souls 1 counterpart which stole humanity, the Dark Hand will steal HP.

UpgradesEdit

Cannot be upgraded.
