Curved Swords are a type of Weapon in Elden Ring. Curved Swords specialize in slashing attacks, and are capable of inflicting damage on hostile creatures without sacrificing mobility. They can also attack more quickly than many other melee weapons in Elden Ring, making them excellent against fast-moving opponents. Curved Swords, like Thrusting Swords, have a back-step feint. While charging up a heavy attack, pressing Dodge will cancel the attack and instead perform a back-step attack.

Curved Swords can use most Ashes of War, but not those that require Pierce Damage, since they cannot deal that damage type.

Note: Since Patch 1.06, the time required to roll after performing an attack has been reduced, the motion speed of strong attack and charge attack has been increased and the motion speed of Guard Counter has been increased.

        Two best curved swords in the game: a rusted pile of **** and a blade so chipped it doesn't even have a proper edge.

        • It is said, if you manage to fist only the entire game with your bare hands, and i mean the ENTIRE game so stuff like rykard, malenia, mohg aswell, you will unlock the wondrous Pontiff Knight Curved Sword on all characters which has a S in all stats, even in Vigor!

            It makes no sense at all that they use the stabbing animation for critical hits if they can't actually do piercing damage, they should be either made Slash/Pierce damage or change the critical hit animation to the 2 part slash like the Curved Greatswords

              so when I look at the max between Fire and flame art.. why the **** should I use Fire? flame art has more physical AND fire damage.

                hope this helps!!

                • So when you hit stone-type enemies (miners, stonetroll etc) with dual-wielded L1 or one-handed R1 it always bounces off. Two-handed R1 works fine. Does it always work like that or do I need 50% extra stat requirements like in Dark Souls 2?

                    People always talk about the powerstance moveset with these, but they also have a really satisfying and effective guard counter.

                                Aside from the occasional embarrassing moment where your swords are just a little too stumpy to hit your target, dual-wielded curved swords are super fun in PvE. High damage output, lots of combos, a number of viable infusion paths you can tailor to whatever area or boss you're facing -- what's not to love?

                                    I can PvP and PvE with the two-handed moveset just fine, in fact I find it safer and more consistent in PvP. Dodging the powerstance running attack and jump is quite easy if you don't panic roll. Saying there's only 3 powerstance attacks that are worth it is wrong. You just need to practice guys.

                                      From went to lengths to ensure these were not the PVP machines they were in 3, hoo boy. These things have one move and one move only, powerstance running L1. Which is a pretty good move. But also, I can hit someone for over 1000 with a running L1, and then proceed to miss five in a row right in their face while they're doing nothing to defend themselves, and the next one that actually connects deals less than 200. Wildly inconsistent. I've had markedly better success with katana, thrusting swords, and straight swords.

                                        Dual curved sword running attack is really frustrating to play against in pvp for me. Comes out really quickly, and the range is also really deceptive, since the player gets kind of a boost of speed and lunges forward when using it. Very easy to be roll-caught with it, and in situations where you need to run to reposition, it's very hard to avoid getting hit by it, since I think the active frames of the attack are quite long, as opposed to say, dual Great Spears which feel more straightforward to roll-dodge.

                                          dear pkcs users,

                                          there may not be a new fast curved sword with the range of the pkcs but there is something similar. i introduce you to the wing of astel. although it is a slow curved sword, it r2 which launches a magic slash similar to the moonveil l2 r1 but weaker but yet faster. with some timing it is an efficient roll catching tool to have on your belt. since the wing of astel is an intel scaling weapon it can be paired with a staff with carian slicer. ive ran this set up and it absolutely shreds, carian slicer being you bread and butter attack and let the r2's of the wing of astel do the roll catching then add some spell mixups and combo casting like swift shard to comet or spiral shard, you now then have a powerful and fun build.

                                            Is dual scimitar faster than dual bandit's cs? I mainly use running & jumping L1. Only have dual bandit's cs now.

                                                GUYS iIhave news of a leaked dlc weapon, a curved word that innately deals frost damage, that's right! in the dlc we are getting a new PKCS!!! also the is a dagger that deals mad stunlock damage, may be murky, ill have to find out.

                                                • In my opinion, the ER community has not really tapped into the true potential of curved swords yet.


                                                  Curved swords are very light when compared to any other weapon loadout. Any two curved swords will land between 4 and 7 weight total; even power stanced, that is much less weight than any other weapon class.

                                                  Curved swords are extremely high dps (arguably highest dps weapons in the game) but have drawbacks: short range, need time to unleash full attack combo, terrible against shields. Most builds I've seen using Curved Swords try to mitigate these weaknesses by just having tons of armor and forcing their way into combat.

                                                  Instead, I advocate for adding MORE tools to your arsenal to compensate for weaknesses. The shotel is only 2.0 weight, but it doesn't just have 40% block break - more often than not in the offhand it just goes AROUND shields and pokes enemies in the head causing huge poise damage. It also causes your main hand weapon to NOT bounce against shields, letting you frantically spam L1 in a big pack of enemies with a shield or two among them.

                                                  Similarly curved swords have relatively low AR and don't crit for ****. So add a super light dagger in r2.

                                                  All curved swords have 82 base bleed at max level and blood infused... so why are you adding blood to scav curved sword? instead have scav curved sword mainhand w/ like, cold or something, still hit that ***** with seppuku, and use any other blood CS with Seppuku for your main offhand, or hit scav sword with bloodflame blade. Need some range? Add a whip or a crossbow.

                                                  Due to their light weight you can easily carry 3-4 seperate curved swords with different WA's and affixes for different situations and add even more tools and still come in at less weight than someone using a single Zweihander, or even a straight sword and a shield

                                                  • Anonymous

                                                    I just learned that when curved swords are powerstanced you can apply parry to left hand.

                                                      i wish dual wielding these wasnt so much stronger than two handing them that it feels stupid to two hand them instead bc curved swords are my favorite but i think dual wielding looks dumb but two handing a curved sword just doesnt feel like it does enough damage

Go through, and ride the elevator in the next room to the very top. From there, turn left and kill the Black Dumpling enemy hiding behind some boxes. Afterwards, you will find one Magma Blade Man-Serpent down each of the two remaining paths. One is down a short flight of stairs to the right of the elevator, and the other is straight ahead from the elevator, along with a Magma Whip Man-Serpent. Once the two Magma Blade Man-Serpents are dead, fast travel back to the Temple of Eiglay grace and repeat.

                                                                      For me some designs raise questions about the creative process. Perhaps, the Scavenger was originally intended as a Katana, while the Serpentbone was supposed to be a curved sword? But they decided to switch it up before releasing.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        Anyone else hates how light these feel? Like every swing it feels like I'm swinging a stick because of the light sound effect. Even Dagger's sound effect carries more weight than this. It really feels like they did Curved Swords dirty in this game and Katana are just From's favorite. Katana are just way less goofy looking, their powerstance/two hand movesets are some of the coolest, most fluent and realistic ones, they have more interesting skills (Yup, even if Moonveil and Rivers are busted and you see them everywhere it's still more interesting than whatever Curved Swords do). Katana even get a running poke attack! As a SLASHING weapon. Favoritism is hilarious, we can't even get a poke on Greatswords unless it's Claymore for whatever reason and we swing them like we're smashing a hammer into the ground. What a joke.

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          I've been playing a dual wielding dex build and I want to emphasize how powerful the powerstance dashing and powerstance jumping attacks are with curved swords. These attack inputs result in two swipes per sword, four in total and do really good damage. I've had the Blue Dancer Charm, Claw Talisman and Confessor Talisman equipped most often, but I'm really interested in seeing how this build performs with the Raptors Black Feathers, Rotted Wing Insignia and also see if the Lord of Blood Exultation would be a better replacement for any talisman slots.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            Compared to straight swords and thrusting swords, these curved swords attack the slowest but hit the most. You'd think that just because they're dexterity weapons, they'd be fast, right? Well they're quick to add flourish and style with most swing. Plus they strike at angles that make it difficult to cleave multiple enemies but not borderline impossible. That's why straight swords are more popular for the longest time. They're straight to the point, swinging fast and wide.
                                                                            However if you want rapid hits and a really good dual wield set, you can hardly go wrong with curved swords........Although Thrusting Swords give curved swords strong competition in this game, especially when dual wielded.

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                I don’t like being pidgeon holed into a specific weapons.

                                                                                      • Hey so I dont know if this is on all or a few curved swords, or if it's already common knowledge, but on the magma and beastman swords I was able to hold rt/r2 and b/circle and do the first part of the strong attack and it animation cancels into a ds1 style ninja flip. Let me know if u can get this to work for you.

                                                                                        • its funny how most of the "curved swords" require farming and more time investment to get, compared to "katana" for example. devs just want you to use those instead of curved swords. it clearly shows the devs agenda
