The Lothric Knight Sword is a straight sword in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A well-crafted straight sword designed for thrusting attacks, wielded by the venerable Knights of Lothric
The Knights of Lothric, with their drakes, once crushed anything that threatened their shores. Of course, that was a long, long time ago.
Skill: Stance
While in stance, use normal attack to break a foe's guard from below, and strong attack to slash upwards with a forward lunge.



The Lothric Knight Sword's strong attacks are reminiscent of the Balder Side Sword's strong attacks, which are explicitly thrust attacks instead of the typical upward slashes (one-handed) or broad, horizontal slashes (two-handed). The two-handed strong attacks have impressive range, and much like spears, can hit for very high damage as a counterattack.

This, coupled with the ability to charge strong attacks, can make the Lothric Knight Sword deal astronomical damage if timed correctly in combat. As such, the Leo Ring complements this weapon excellently, as it will make the already substantial counterattacks even stronger.

It should be noted that the Lothric Knight Sword has a slightly higher critical modifier than the other straight swords (110 instead of 100).


  • One-Handed weak attack: Horizontal slash.
  • One-Handed strong attack: Thrust.
  • Two-Handed weak attack: Horizontal slash.
  • Two-handed strong attack: Thrust.
  • Rolling attack: Thrust.
  • Running attack: Slash.


When using the weapon skill, the player transitions into a stance in which they grasp the pommel with both hands and hold the sword up at shoulder level. Executing a light attack whilst in the stance will cause the player to perform a quick vertical slash that inflicts significant stamina damage, which will likely result in an opponent's guard being broken if they are blocking; the player may then riposte them with a critical attack if they so choose. Using the strong attack whilst in the stance will have the player perform a lunging thrust forward, inflicting heavy poise damage on contact.

The Lothric Knight Sword has noticeably longer range with each weapon art.


Reinforced with Titanite.

Maximum reinforcement requires a Titanite Slab.
