The Shotel is a curved sword in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Broadly curved sword known as the favored weapon of the tragic Embraced Knight.
Shaped to sneak around the defenses of shields, this sword requires ample dexterity to wield effectively.
Skill: Spin Slash
Slice into foes with a large spinning motion, and follow with strong attack for a spinning vertical-slash.

AvailabilityEdit

Two are sold by Unbreakable Patches for 4,000 souls.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Shotel is an unusual curved sword that utilizes the "light curved sword" moveset of the Scimitar, but combines it with specialized strong attacks that are designed to exploit its specialized ability to deal damage through raised shields. With speed and damage output comparable to that of the Scimitar, the Shotel is a very useful weapon for dealing with enemies with constantly raised shields, though it must be two-handed to prevent it from recoiling, leaving the wielder vulnerable to Instability damage.

At very high levels of Dexterity, a Shotel infused with a Sharp Gem unfortunately cannot keep up with other infusable curved swords, weakening its utility on extremely specialized builds.
