The Guardian Tail is a whip in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Sliced tail of the Sanctuary Guardian.
This flexible, spiked and highly poisonous tail would make a rather obnoxious weapon.

AvailabilityEdit

The Guardian Tail is only available in the Artorias of the Abyss DLC. It is obtained by cutting the tail off the Sanctuary Guardian boss guarding the Oolacile Sanctuary, or the two Lesser Sanctuary Guardians that spawn in its place after the defeat of Artorias the Abysswalker.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Guardian Tail has low attack power, but causes Poison buildup. In addition to it not being able to backstab, it cannot be parried or riposted, making it easier to cause Poison to other players in PvP. The Guardian Tail has the highest base damage of the whips, but has lower dexterity scaling.

Once inflicted, its Poison deals 3 damage per second over 3 minutes.
