      People give this weapon **** for no good reason. Stamina consumption is super low, it's heavy attacks have increased stagger and stance damage (seriously, it's so good, that you might wanna use a short sword just for it's heavy attacks, abd evenso being a "dex" weapon, it scales fantastic of flame, evenso it has very low based damage.i like to use it in combination with a executioner axe in the back. Fast Stick with Big Chop

        How much poise damage do these things do? The one handed 3x jumping R2 can stagger Omens for a critical hit.

          As a weapon itself, as you may guess, it's pretty lackluster compared to the larger, longer, flashier options. However due to it's very low requirements you can use it as a Weapon Skill stick on a caster build without investing too much into the oonga bunga stats. This can be handy because there's a large number of Ashes that are useful for Straight Swords. Gravitas can be acquired shortly after starting the game, which gives you a strong magic option very early on.

          When used in this manner it has a purpose, although you'll find better options for this purpose later on.

          • In Black Knife Catacombs, skeletons do not die and stand back up even if you hit them after "killing them" while on the ground. I wouldn't be surprised if this becomes more prevalent later in the game.

            For those situations, holy damage is useful. On my Astrologer, I used the short sword (Astrologer starting weapon) with the Ash of War: Sacred Blade and the Sacred Affinity.

            Being an Astrologer, I have plenty of FP to cast the Sacred Blade ranged skill for the entire catacombs. And since "the armament retains its holy essence for a while," I can usually kill one more skeleton with the infused short sword outright. These kills work without needing to even down them first.

            It's the first time I use my short sword on my Astrologer since low levels. My main sword is Lazuli Glintstone Sword, which doesn't accept Ash of War applications.

            As an Astrologer, you too might find yourself in this situation where you need to use a melee armament and have a limited selection to choose from if you didn't increase str / dex / arc / fai. In those situations, your starting short sword might come in handy again.

              The charged heavies have some insane poise damage from such a tiny weapon. Some late game guys I can just chain poise break.

                Oddly, at 48 dex, Keen broadsword +24 has 454 attack power (B scaling dex), and keen short sword has 427 attack power. I also checked all the way up to 89 dex, and even though the short sword has A in scaling, the attack power is still 18 less than the broadsword. Maybe it'll take the lead at +25? Weird

                  by not having the higher crit bonus (a la DS3), i don't see a point... from again just making **** useless for no reason.

                      For anyone crazy enough to dual wield these, you can get a second one by farming the highwaymen in Murkwater Cave (Patches’s Cave).

                      Also, the two main perks of the short sword compared to the LSSS (Lordsworn’s Short Sword) seem to be that is has a stab strong attack and at least in Standard form its dex and str scaling are both higher (but still “D”, just a better D.) I wonder if the short sword has better scaling in all forms. But of course its base damage is significantly lower so I have no idea how high your stats have to be for short sword to have the damage advantage but they probably have to be pretty high…

                        So THIS is the stabby two-handed straight sword of this game? I guess it makes sense to give it to the shortsword since there's no other reason to use this weapon.
