Wpn Silver Knight Straight Sword

Regular is a damage type that can be inflicted in Dark Souls.

General InformationEdit

Regular Damage is one of four physical damage types and is dealt by every straight sword, axe, great axe, ultra greatsword, and nearly every greatsword. While many inflict only Regular Damage, some inflict both Regular and Thrust, depending on which attack is used from its moveset.

Regular Damage is one of the most frequently encountered damage types and one can protect themselves against it in a multitude of ways.

DefenseEdit

Def atk phy To lower Regular Damage received, it is necessary to raise the Physical Defense stat, which will from now on be referred to as Regular Defense.

StatsEdit

At lower levels, increasing any stat while leveling up will raise Regular Defense to some degree, however, Resistance will raise it more than any other.

EquipmentEdit

ArmorEdit

As a general rule, the heavier an armor piece is, the higher its defense against Physical damage will be.

Of the starting armor sets, the Knight Set offers the highest Regular Defense.

Light armor sets are not the best choice to reduce Regular Damage. The Xanthous Set and Lord's Blade Set are the heaviest of all light armors, and therefore offer higher defense against Regular Damage. Lighter armor sets that offer very good Regular Defense for their weight are the Crimson Set and Big Hat's Set.

Within medium armor sets, the Catarina Set, Paladin Set and Ornstein's Set are good choices when receiving Regular Damage.

Heavy armor sets offer the best choices when raising Physical Defense. Havel's Set, Smough's Set and the fully upgraded Giant Set are excellent choices.

RingsEdit

The Ring of Steel Protection raises all forms of Physical Defense.

ShieldsEdit

Unlike armor, shields modify damage based on a percentage and all forms of Physical damage are affected by its single modifier. Many of the standard shields and greatshields protect against 100% of Physical Damage; the Heater Shield, Dragon Crest Shield and Black Knight Shield are examples of these.

WeaponsEdit

Many weapons deal only Regular Damage, however, some deal both Regular or Thrust Damage based upon what attack is used out of its moveset.
