The Spotted Whip is a whip in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Whip mottled with venomous-looking spots.
Favored by some female pyromancers of the Great Swamp.
As its noxious appearance would suggest, damage from this whip poisons its victims, slowly but surely guiding them to their deaths.
Skill: Impact
Strike from the left to evade shields and deal a stinging blow that temporarily slows stamina recovery. The shackles of bondage lie deep in the hearts of all humankind.


Found in the Undead Settlement, on the same cage where Cornyx was first found. The whip, along with Cornyx's Set, will only appear after defeating the Old Demon King with the aid of the Great Swamp Cuculus in the Smouldering Lake.


An unorthodox whip, the Spotted Whip specializes in inflicting foes with Poison.

Scaling purely with Dexterity, the Spotted Whip possesses the same moveset as the standard Whip. However, unlike the Whip, it possesses innate Poison build-up, and thus is useful for builds that inflict status effects upon opponents. This means that it is ideal to level up Luck as well as Dexterity when using this weapon.

Although it upgrades using standard Titanite, it cannot be infused. However, despite this fact it can still be buffed. Thus in order to more effectively inflict foes with Poison, it is possible to apply Rotten Pine Resin, greatly augmenting the pre-existing Poison build-up and allowing the wielder to proc the status effect in less than half the number of require hits.
