The Shotel is an unusual curved sword that utilizes the "light curved sword" moveset of the Scimitar, but combines it with specialized strong attacks that are designed to exploit its specialized ability to deal damage through raised shields. With speed and damage output comparable to that of the Scimitar, the Shotel is a very useful weapon for dealing with enemies with constantly raised shields, though it must be two-handed to prevent it from recoiling, leaving the wielder vulnerable to Instability damage.
