The Soldering Iron (焼きごて Yakigote, Branding Iron) is a spear in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Branding iron used by the jailers prowling Irithyll Dungeon.
Press its searing tip against foes to inflict fire damage, and temporarily block Estus healing.
Skill: Charge
Hold iron at waist and charge at foe. Use strong attack while charging to extend the length of the charge.

Availability[]

Dropped by Jailers in Irithyll Dungeon.

Characteristics[]

Has low base physical damage and inflicts a flat amount of Fire damage per attack. Its poor scaling in Strength and Dexterity ensure that any attacks performed with this weapon will deal minimal damage no matter its upgrade level or the wielder's stats. It also has short reach for a spear, matching range with some straight swords and being outranged by a number of greatswords.

However, upon hitting a target with the weapon, they will be branded and their ability to heal is reduced. Consuming a charge of an Estus Flask will restore 20% less HP while the debuff is active. The debuff persists for 15 seconds, and can be re-applied indefinitely.

Trivia[]

  • This weapon's name is incorrect; a Soldering iron is a piece of engineering equipment used in electronic assembly or repair, primarily to create electrical conductivity between wires. This weapon should correctly be called a Branding iron.
