The Falchion is a curved sword in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Small curved sword. Each hit inflicts little damage, but fluid chain attacks are deadly.
The falchion's sharp slashing attacks are effective against cloth and flesh, but not against metal armor or tough scales.

AvailabilityEdit

CharacteristicsEdit

The Falchion has the same scaling, moveset, attack speed, and stamina consumption as the Scimitar, but has higher base damage. The Falchion has a higher Strength requirement than the scimitar (although all starting classes have enough Strength for it). The only weakness it has compared to the scimitar is its heavier weight. In terms of damage output, the Falchion loses to the Painting Guardian Sword at higher levels; however, it still holds the edge over the Painting Guardian Sword in terms of reach.

In terms of builds, the Falchion holds a great edge over builds intended for DPS (Damage Per Second) which utilise miracles and sorceries that have few casts such as Sunlight Blade, Darkmoon Blade and Crystal Magic Weapon. The Falchion is one of the weapons with the least stamina consumption and when upgraded to +15 Standard, players with poise less than 50 will be easily stunlocked and players can 'spam' the weak attack for an easy kill. There are few ways to combat this but a weapon with more damage, like the Obsidian Greatsword, can stunlock them or kill them in fewer hits.
