The Manslayer is a katana in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A katana with a terribly worn blade. Appears useless, but is in fact coated with deadly poison.
The sword has claimed countless victims, and the bloodstains upon its blade have turned to poison.

Location Edit

The Manslayer can be found after beating the Demon of Song in the Shrine of Amana. After defeating the demon there will be a hidden path submerged in water next to a ruined shrine. This walkway will lead to a tower and a bonfire. Up the tower there is a door that may only be opened while the character is hollow. Open the door and kill the enemies. At the end of the walk way there will be a Milfanito and a large alter of fire. Head down the stairs behind the Milfanito. Upon exiting the small tower, the character will come to a small set of stairs that lead to water. The chest containing the Manslayer will be directly left of the staircase when exiting the tower.

Notes Edit

  • This weapon upgrades with Twinkling Titanite.
  • The Manslayer +5 has the exact same stats and scaling as the Uchigatana +10, but the Manslayer has the bonus poison damage.
  • The Manslayer is found in a metal chest and cannot be re-spawned with a bonfire ascetic.
