The Longsword is a straight sword in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Widely-used standard straight sword, only matched in ubiquity by the Shortsword.
An accessible sword which inflicts consistent regular damage and high slash damage, making it applicable to a variety of situations.

AvailabilityEdit

CharacteristicsEdit

Often overshadowed by the Balder Side Sword, the Longsword is nonetheless a versatile weapon which can be relied on for the entire game. Compared to Balder Side Sword, the Longsword has shorter range but comes with lower stat requirements, as well as even distribution of scaling through both Strength and Dexterity. The poor C scaling can only be taken advantage of through investment of both Strength and Dexterity, making it unpopular for dedicated builds.

Its strong attack, a vicious thrust with fairly exceptional range, is the straight sword's family trademark, and can be followed up by a quick vertical swing. The vertical swing has shorter range than the thrust itself, so it would help to judge distances carefully.
