For the Dark Souls variant, see Astora's Straight Sword.

The Astora Straight Sword is a straight sword in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A well-crafted sword named after the ruined land.
Astora, before its fall, was a land replete with royal blood, and this weapon is both a reminder and heirloom of that era.
Skill: Stance
While in stance, use normal attack to break a foe's guard from below, and strong attack to slash upwards with a forward lunge.

AvailabilityEdit

Found in the High Wall of Lothric, on a path hidden behind some barrels after passing through the rooftop area, inside a chest after one drops down to the scaffolding below.

CharacteristicsEdit

Although it has a minimum requirement in Faith in order to be used effectively, the Astora Straight Sword does not scale with Faith (unless it is infused down the Blessed/Lightning path), nor is it innately-blessed (unlike Anri's Straight Sword).

While it does have higher base damage than the Long Sword, it should be noted that it scales worse in Dexterity, and continues to scale unremarkably with both Strength and Dexterity, even at maximum reinforcement, and when it is made into a refined weapon.

Unlike its Dark Souls variant, it does not have magic damage or blessed damage.
