Straight Swords are a type of weapon in Dark Souls.

OverviewEdit

Most of the general Straight Sword attacks are like exaggerated versions of Dagger attacks, the most accurate description of this weapon. Each swing is just slightly slower than a Dagger, but as an upside, the attacks all have slightly better range and greater damage. These weapons do not have the high Critical Attack modifier of the Daggers, so while their normal damage output is greater, their critical damage usually works out less. The extra attack range these weapons have do make them better for attacking multiple opponents. If, however, you are having trouble landing critical attacks, the extra normal damage is a welcome upgrade over Daggers.

Straight Swords are good all-round weapons with quick attack speeds and decent damage.

  • Best straight sword??

    • The sunlight sword has good base damage and scales A/A with str and dex.
    • AFAIK only the Sun Sword has the old Dark Souls SS moveset, but is gimped by requiring a quality build. You're probably better off one-handin...
