The Heide Knight Sword is a straight sword in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

Straight sword originating in Heide. A special alloy makes it very durable.
The composition of the alloy of these swords remains a mystery, but in Drangleic the attempt to imitate it resulted in the similar bradden steel.

AvailabilityEdit

Dropped from the Heide Knight encountered in the Forest of Fallen Giants.

Dropped from one of the Red Phantoms in the King's Door area in the Forest of Fallen Giants in NG+.

In Scholar of the First Sin it can only be dropped from the Heide Knights in Heide's Tower of Flame and also must be farmed rather than being a guaranteed drop.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Heide Knight Sword is a relatively robust straight sword with a varied moveset. It is capable of horizontal as well as vertical slashes, and a thrusting attack on the second strong attack when one-handed. It also possesses higher than usual durability, making it a rather reliable weapon to use on longer journeys.

Its main characteristic, however, is that it deals Lightning damage, making it a fairly useful weapon for Faith builds. Combined with its early availability (it can be found in one of the two immediately accessible areas at the start of the game) as well as its low physical stat requirements, and it becomes a very strong candidate for infusing with a Boltstone, and even for Power Stancing (requiring as little as 16 Strength and 15 Dexterity). However, this second option is only viable in Scholar of the First Sin.
