The Rotten Ghru Curved Sword, upon initial inspection, is a very unimpressive weapon, however it has many surprising features. Based on the "light curved sword" moveset of the Scimitar, the Rotten Ghru Curved Sword has a short reach but consumes little stamina with each swing, much like the Painting Guardian's Curved Sword. As well, its attacks inflict Poison build-up with each strke, making it useful for inflicting foes with the status effect. It can even be infused with a Poison Gem to further augment this effect.
However, the most surprising feature of this sword is that, when infused with a Sharp Gem, it is capable of dealing impressive amounts of damage. At very high levels of Dexterity, a Sharp Rotten Ghru Sword can compete with and even outmatch the damage of a Follower Sabre.
