The Witch's Locks is a whip in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

A whip fashioned from the black hair of a daughter of the Witch of Izalith, creator of the Flame of Chaos.
The long, shining locks woven together to create this whip are imbued with the essence of fire, which can be channeled through the use of its Skill.
Skill: Flame Whip
Temporarily coat the whip in fire, the self-same fire as that which consumed the Witch herself, it is said.

AvailabilityEdit

Found inside a chest in the Grand Archives, in a secret room behind a moving bookcase in the darkened room on the second floor, past the large vat with wax. The bookcase's mechanism is triggered by a lever within the same room.

CharacteristicsEdit

While it has the same moveset as the other whips, with the proper stat investment this whip far outstrips the others, as well as having inherent elemental damage.

The weapon skill is of particular note, as it temporarily adds more Fire damage (100 to be precise) and uses a unique move that causes damage at short range upon initiation and ends with a long range attack that is longer than the whip's regular moveset.

This is an ideal weapon choice for pyromancers, as the inherent investment that pyromancy damage requires meets the requirements of this whip.

While it is a very powerful weapon, it has all the drawbacks of the whip weapon class; it cannot perform critical attacks. However, as with other whips it also cannot be parried. Furthermore, the moveset is slow and therefore this weapon is poor at trading damage with. A more strategic mindset is required to use this weapon effectively.

NotesEdit

  • The weapon's description may be a reference to Chaos Witch Quelaag, as she is the only Daughter of Chaos whose hair is seen by the player, and it is black in color.
  • The skill's range can be tricky for players to map down; as such, this is a useful weapon in PvP.
