To people who own Scholar of the First Sin, the Heide Knight will not be in Forrest of Fallen Giants. You will have to farm for it in Tower of Flame.

Usually on the wiki pages there is a second location specifically labelled for SOTFS, though I don't know why that isn't the case for this one, maybe it was just forgotten.
By Anonymous
I mean, it says at "+5" kms

Playing SOTFS and it's still there at the forest, what? Literally, 2 seconds ago, just got it. :O
By kogaO
thank you, they really need to make 2 separate wiki's for SotFS, i never know which info is for my version or not but i thank you very much!
By Anonymous
It says at "+10 it has 150+105" but my Heide Knight Sword is at +10 and it has 150+101 at 20str 31dex

If the knight is still under the tree in FoFG, then you're not playing SOTFS.
By Anonymous
Wrong. Heide knight is still under the tree in FoFG in SoTFS. I just killed him this morning.
By Anonymous
there are actually 3 versions of ds2, the original, the old softs and the new softs, i played both softs versions and the diference is overwhelming in the first levels.

It is the length of a shortsword with the handle of a greatsword/longsword.Someone explain this.
By Anonymous
it's actually a bastard sword hilt
By Anonymous
the design is realistic, this is one of the best looking swords in the game.
By Anonymous
Indeed, a realistic looking bastard sword.
Like it or not.

is it wise to infuse it with lightning?
By Bioforce
Sorry for the late response, but yes, it is VERY wise. Although it only list a B for scaling, the Heide knight swords faith scaling when lightning infused is actually absurd. Should probably be listed as S realistically. I have a pure faith build with 50 faith and bare minimum str/dex stats to equip the heide knight sword and it gets an AR of well of 400 when lightning infused. Slap sunlight blade onto it and it is one of theh ighest DPS'ing weapons in the game. I'm amazed more people don't use it. The only reason i can see why people dont is because it lists a very misleading "B" scaling when lightning infused.

By dorferino

By Anonymous

Last gen(xbox360 and ps3) SotFs doesn't change item placement
By Anonymous
This wiki is wrong
it is on SoTFS edition where it says, atleast on ps3 anyway
By Anonymous
Weird,it's not there for me...
By Anonymous
it's not there for anyone in SoTFS
By Anonymous
It's there for me too (Xbox 360) on SoTFS
By Anonymous
"scholar of the first sin" refers to the DX11 PC version, which has the SOTFS changes. The 360, PS3 and DX9 PC versions count as "not sotfs".
By Anonymous
Fast attack, good scales, have lightning damage, low states require, easy-to-find upgrade materials. This one is a very good sword!
By Anonymous
25/25 STR dex 46 faith
at +10 I get 126+35 phys
140+108 lightning
oh that's with lightning imbued
By Anonymous
Anyone else hate the way this sword swings compared to other straight swords?
By Anonymous
Pretty terrible I agree.
By Anonymous
It's actually pretty useful in quite a few scenarios. Narrow swings so you don't bounce in corridors, vertical to ping anything that's hanging out at ground level, and a swipe for the heavy? Yeah, pretty dang good
