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 when she is killed. Alternatively, left at her normal location once she disappears after completing the Lord of Hollows ending.


Darkdrift is a relatively unimpressive katana. It has low base damage and does not scale well with Dexterity compared with other katanas. Its damage output is comparable with that of an un-buffed Bloodlust, making it one of the weakest katanas in the game.

Darkdrift's primary utility is in using its skill in order to break the defenses of players that rely on shields. However, even this can be considered a mixed blessing as more experienced players can see the weapon's telegraph and dodge out of the way of the attack. In lieu of this, Darkdrift does not possess an otherwise serviceable skill like other katanas which can allow it to parry in a pinch.


Moveset is identical to that of the Uchigatana, however its weapon art is unique.
