For the Dark Souls III variant, see Painting Guardian's Curved Sword.

The Painting Guardian Sword is a curved sword in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Curved sword of Anor Londo painting guards. Unique shape with flat tip.
The guardians, who strike down those who dare threaten the painting, attack in a continuous, circular dancing motion, a technique passed down through generations.

AvailabilityEdit

The Painting Guardian Sword is dropped uncommonly by the Painting Guardians located in Anor Londo, in the hall leading to the entrance towards the Painted World of Ariamis.

CharacteristicsEdit

The great damage per second and high swing speed of this sword is offset by its very short reach. The Painting Guardian Sword inflicts bleed. It has higher scaling for Dexterity than the other curved swords. The Painting Guardian Sword is the fastest attacking weapon in the game, and thus is arguably the best weapon for an Augmentation build.
