The reskinned Murakumo can be found in the same chest after the patch on February 5th, 2015. The other three reskinned weapons can also be found there.
- +10 Murakumo has 380 base attack strength and E/A scaling.
- The Murakumo is the most powerful curved greatsword unless the Crown of the Ivory King expansion is downloaded.
Curved greatswords like the Murakumo are slower than Greatswords but faster than Ultra Greatswords. And having high scaling in Dexterity in general, these weapons are more suited to DEX builds.
The Murakumo distinguishes itself among its fellow Curved Greatswords in that it is the lightest and the fastest Curved Greatsword in the game. The first one-handed weak attack comes off a bit slow, but the second one-handed weak attack follows up quite fast, which is good for staggering opponents or trying to sneak in just that one more hit on bosses before they recover from their attack animations. And while it has lower poise damage than any UGS (50 to any UGS as 45 to any CGS), a 45 poise damage is still substantial to stagger humanoid enemies in 1-2 hits, and paired with the Stone Ring, would allow a player to stagger and stunlock most enemies in the game.
- "Murakumo" is a recurring name appearing in games developed by From Software, like Murakumo: Renegade Mech Pursuit and the Armored Core video game series. In Armored Core: Verdict Day, there is a melee weapon in the game called "MURAKUMO mdl.1".
Reinforced with Titanite.
