The Follower Sabre is a curved sword in Dark Souls III: Ashes of Ariandel.

In-Game Description

Great curved sword wielded by Farron Followers. Its great weight enables heavy-handed chain attacks.
The Followers brandish their swords to hunt warriors taken by the Abyss. Their technique is honed to face men, implying those yet to lose their human aspect are their likeliest prey.
Skill: Prying Wedge
A chain attack that wedges below foes and swings upward, breaking their guard. Strong attack can be used to follow up the onslaught with a fatal blow.

AvailabilityEdit

From the Ariandel Chapel, head back toward the bridge and cut it down. Climb down the ladder and continue on the rooted path. After several drop-downs, there will be a circular area with several roots leading downward, the Follower Sabre will be on a corpse above a torch-carrying Farron Follower.

CharacteristicsEdit

On initial inspection, the Follower Sabre is not a very impressive weapon, as it uses the standard "heavy curved sword" moveset of the Falchion.

However, what distinguishes the Follower Sabre, besides its longer reach, is its weapon art, the Prying Wedge. This gives the Follower Sabre a niche where its brethren often have trouble, performing lightning-fast guard breaks. This serves to greatly augment its offensive potential, rewarding aggressive players who are able to put constant pressure on their foes.

Unusual for a curved sword, it can reach A scaling in Strength when upgraded and infused with Heavy. A quality build with Refined will still have a higher attack rating, however.
