Not to be confused with Smelter Sword.

The Aged Smelter Sword is an ultra greatsword in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

Ultra greatsword crafted from the soul
of the Smelter Demon.
Its blade is imbued with a great flame.
Use the strong attack to unleash its latent power.
When the old king acquired the power to grant life
to heaps of iron, he molded a great array of
metallic automatons.The iron monstrosity itself
was perhaps one of the king's puppets.
Effect: special attack (strong attack)

Characteristics[]

Visually, its design is very similar to the Smelter Sword. The only difference is that it glows blue, as it deals Magic damage, as opposed to Fire damage.

Whilst being one of the heaviest weapons in the game, the Aged Smelter Sword features a unique moveset, where each strong attack is a combustion-inducing strike, creating a small, fiery explosion when the sword makes contact. Strong attacks consume 10 durability each; this can be partially mitigated with use of the Bracing Knuckle Ring variants. Unlike most boss soul weapons, the Aged Smelter Sword cannot be infused.

Notes[]

  • Powerstancing the Smelter Sword with the Aged Smelter Sword allows for a large mixed red and blue explosion.
  • Despite the looks, both Smelter Swords deal physical damage with their explosions. You can test this by hitting Flame Salamanders with the fire explosion as they are immune to fire.
  • Like the regular Smelter Sword, the explosion of the special attack is only triggered if the player hits a solid object or enemy.
