The Darkdrift is a katana in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A cursed sword with an unseen blade, the choice weapon for Yuria of Londor.
Yuria, a mentor of the Sable Church and accomplished swordswoman, is said to have claimed a hundred lives with this weapon.
Skill: Darkdrift
Aim carefully, and pierce with a large forward lunge. The unseen blade penetrates straight through shields, for nothing can defend from Darkdrift.


Dropped by Yuria of Londor. She will only appear after leveling up five times with Yoel.


Black blade, appears translucent in-game.


Moveset is identical to that of the Uchigatana, however its weapon art is unique.
Attack Description
Weak Attack
Fast, vertical cuts. Good for draining stamina and increasing bleed due to its long reach and excellent hit-frames.
Strong Attack
Wielder pulls back, then lunges forward with a thrust attack. Excellent reach, but moderate windup time.
Weak Attack
Vertical cuts that are slightly slower but deal more damage than the one handed variant.
Strong Attack
Wielder holds the sword overhead in both hands, then brings it down forcefully. Long windup time, making it impractical in the heat of battle but useful to add damage to a recovering foe. The downswing animation allows you to clip through arrows, or even an attack if timed right.
Jump Attack Wielder jumps and buries the katana into the ground. Good damage, but small hitbox and a short reach.
Jump Attack
Same as Jump.
Running Attack Running lunge. Fast with good reach, but small hitbox.
Running Attack
Same as Running Attack.
Rolling Attack Swings katana in front of the wielder horizontally.
Rolling Attack
Same as Rolling Attack.
Kick Standard kick.
Weak Attack
Strong Attack



Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
