The Scimitar is a curved sword in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

Small curved sword. Each hit inflicts little damage, but fluid chain attacks are deadly.
The scimitar's sharp slashing attacks are effective against cloth and flesh, but not against metal armor or tough scales.

AvailabilityEdit

CharacteristicsEdit

The Scimitar is similar to the Falchion in many ways. The only differences are that the scimitar is one unit lighter, deals inferior damage, and has a lower Strength requirement (although the last point is moot as every starting class has the Strength to wield the Falchion). Consequently, unless the player would be overburdened otherwise, the Falchion is the more practical choice.

Both swords possess an advantage for a high-mobility character build, however. The R2 attack, in particular, synergizes extremely well with dodge rolls, allowing the player to dance away from an attack routine before coming back in with a devastating blow that can also hit multiple enemies.
