The Black Dragon Sword is a straight sword in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

In legend, this oddly shaped straight sword is said to be forged from the black dragon's tail.
As it is told, the black dragon lost its tail to a brave warrior in a magnificent battle, and the tail was later used to forge several legendary weapons.

Availability[]

The Black Dragon Sword is a rare drop from the Dragon Knight wielding the sword in the Dragon Shrine near the Ancient Dragon. Using lots of item discovery to get it is recommended.

Characteristics[]

As with all Black Dragon weapons, they have no scaling, which means they are great choices for infusing with Raw if the player is low level; infuse it with Enchant, if they have high Intelligence; or infusing with Mundane if they have very balanced stats.

They are upgraded with Petrified Dragon Bones and their increase in damage when fully maxed out, is more than double their initial damage.
