Farron Flashsword is a sorcery in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Alteration of Soul Greatsword developed by sorcerers of the Undead Legion of Farron.
The legion has a tendency to emphasize speed over power, and this practical alteration of an existing sorcery is no exception.

AvailabilityEdit

Sold by Orbeck of Vinheim for 5,000 souls.

EffectEdit

Summons a Soul Greatsword quickly in front of the caster, dealing Magic damage to any enemy within the cone of attack.

Strategy Edit

Farron Flashsword, while not as robust as Soul Greatsword itself, has the potential to be a very potent spell, as the true power behind the spell lies within its utility.

When cast, it mimics the attack pattern of a straight sword, and the caster can even perform running and rolling attacks. The spell can be channeled for a very long time, as the FP cost is very minimal, and the slashes are relatively-quick to cast and can chain together effectively.

With a high pool of intelligence, the damage of each slash can be on par with what a crystal-infused straight sword is capable of. These traits allow sorcerers to have a reliable, and effective, close-quarters tool for dispatching of foes that close in on them, instead of having to run the risk of using ranged sorceries at close range. Mixing up Farron Flashsword with Soul Greatsword is an effective way to deal with aggressive enemies, and in terms of PvP, disorient or otherwise catch players off-guard.

However, there is a catch to using this sorcery. Since it behaves like a straight sword when in use, it is able to be parried much like one. This should be taken into consideration before engaging an enemy that can parry the caster, or dons a parrying shield.
