Think I missed something. .. is there a point to boosting this to Enchanted +5? The stats say it gives a S boost to INT, but the sword doesn't use INT, so why bother? *confused*

Enchanted and Magic upgrade paths both give INT scaling for the weapon. This means that as your INT increases the weapon will do more damage. This weapon in particular goes to an S scaling which means a high INT character would get a lot of damage out of it with that upgrade.

The intelligence scaling comes when you ascend on the magic path. The weapon doesn't gain the S scaling for intelligence until it is Enchanted +5, though, so you'll only have A scaling until you max it out with a blue slab

the bit that mentions this being a weaker falchion is just flat out false. in no scenario does this weapon do less damage than the falchion. on a pure dex build or even quality build this weapon will out damage any other curved sword in the game in terms of non-split AR at 40 dex

The same as every other Weapon in the game.

It does less damage at a lower level? What an astute observation, slave knight kos.

The weapon is ruined, and I don't know how to fix it

Did you try shutting it down and restarting it? If that doesn't work take it out blow in it a few times. Ancient chinese secret.

If what they said didn't work, try sacrificing Lautrec, works 100% of the time

I think this weapon might have the highest DPS in the game.

R2 Spamming DMB with Richard's rapier is better I think.

But the Ricards is far less cosistent, given the stamina consumption

Personally I prefer the falchion for juuust enough phantom range for it to not be a limiter

This weapon is almost the perfect dex build weapon. It weighs nothing, hits fast and it deals amazing damages (it's even worse with the Sunlight Blade buff). It has only one weakness : its range.

perfect against four kings, then ?
By Anonymous
#16274538
Yes, perfect against Four Kings... Or should I say Three Kings, because I've never seen a fourth king when using this weapon. Upgraded to +15, have 40+ dex, Sunlight Blade and Power Within = Dead Kings

How long do I have to farm for this to drop?
By Anonymous
#16233815
Probably too late, But it’s a 2% drop chance. You kill about 10 painting guardians every run, And each run takes about 2 minutes. In conclusion, I’d say about 10-20 minutes.

Be sure to wear the Gold Serpent Ring that you can pick up in Sen's Fortress, along with 4 "loose" humanity whenever you are farming anything.

Got it after 2 drops on new run.
