The Murakumo is a curved greatsword in Dark Souls II.

In-Game Description

A curved greatsword said to have been brought to this land by a foreign warrior. Hold with both hands to make parrying accessible.
The exquisitely crafted wide blade makes deadly use of both its weight and smooth slicing action. A tough training regimen is required to master this sword.

Availability[]

Sold by Weaponsmith Ornifex for 5,800 souls once she has relocated to her home in Brightstone Cove Tseldora.

As a special promotion for the Crown of the Sunken King DLC, a special black Murakumo could be found in the Majula Mansion basement chest on the day prior to its release.

Notes[]

  • +10 Murakumo has 380 base attack strength and E/A scaling.

Characteristics[]

Curved Greatswords like the Murakumo are slower than Greatswords but faster than Ultra Greatswords. And having high scaling in Dexterity in general, these weapons are more suited to DEX builds.

The Murakumo distinguishes itself among its fellow Curved Greatswords in that it is the lightest and the fastest Curved Greatsword in the game. The first one-handed weak attack comes off a bit slow, but the second one-handed weak attack follows up quite fast, which is good for staggering opponents or trying to sneak in just that one more hit on bosses before they recover from their attack animations. And while it has lower poise damage than any UGS (50 to any UGS as 45 to any CGS), a 45 poise damage is still substantial to stagger humanoid enemies in 1-2 hits, and paired with the Stone Ring, would allow a player to stagger and stunlock most enemies in the game.

Trivia[]

  • "Murakumo" is a recurring name appearing in games developed by From Software, like Murakumo: Renegade Mech Pursuit and the Armored Core video game series. In Armored Core: Verdict Day, there is a melee weapon in the game called "MURAKUMO mdl.1".
  • A reskinned Murakumo was available as a promotional weapon for the Crown of the Sunken King DLC for nine days after the patch on July 22nd, 2014. It was offered again as a promotion for for a week after the Scholar of the First Sin patch released on February 5th, 2015. The Murakumo, along with the other reskinned weapons that were released for the other DLCs, were all obtained from the unique chest in the basement of the mansion in Majula.
