In-Game Description

Straight sword wielded by Varangians and engraved with a skull.
A former king launched a campaign to capture these terrors of the high seas, but rather than imprison them, forced them into hard labor at No-man's Wharf.
The king, wracked with fear and suspicion,
began to see the progenitor of the curse in
anything and everything. During his reign,
sorcerers in particular suffered dreadful
persecution.

AvailabilityEdit

Drops from Varangian Sailors in No-man's Wharf.

CharacteristicsEdit

The Varangian sword is a good blade. It seems to have very low stamina cost for the damage that a fully upgraded one can deal out. Has decent scaling but very low durability and seems to degrade very fast, making Repair Powders or the Repair sorcery almost a necessity.

NotesEdit

  • Upgrades with Titanite.
  • +10 Varangian Sword has 250 base damage and C/C scaling.
  • Probably a glitch but the durability of this sword seems to degrade exponentially faster than other regular straight swords, even with the Bracing Knuckle Ring. If used for extended periods, this sword will surely break before reaching the next bonfire.
