The Warden Twinblades are paired curved swords in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Paired weapon wielded by the grave wardens of the Cathedral of the Deep.
The grave wardens of the cathedral, who put down reincarnating copses, wield weapons that cause profuse bleeding, for the loss of blood and bodily fluids is said to slow reanimation.
Skill: Spin Slash
Slice into foes with a large spinning motion, and continue spinning to transition into strong attack.


Dropped by Grave Wardens in the Cathedral of the Deep and the Untended Graves.


The Warden Twinblades are best described as an analogue to the Sellsword Twinblades: paired curved swords that utilize the Scimitar's "light curved sword" moveset, but which are specialized to inflict Bleed. While they have a longer reach than the Sellsword Twinblades, they also consume slightly more stamina, reducing their combo ability when pulling off long chains of attacks

The Warden Twinblades deal notably little damage compared to its ilk, even with a Sharp infusion and at very high levels of Dexterity. However, they are unique in that they are specially designed to inflict the Bleed status effect on foes, which is compounded by their paired nature. To this end, they can be invaluable when engaging enemies or even bosses which are weak to Bleed, but otherwise are completely outclassed by the Sellsword Twinblades.
