In Dark Souls 3, katanas are the best choice for Dexterity builds because they can be scaled and have a lot of different moves.
In Dark Souls 3, out of all the weapon classes, katanas might be the best choice for Dexterity builds, since all 8 of them offer good to great growth in this number when improved. They also have a wide range of moves, including both cuts and thrusts, which lets them fight multiple enemies at once and counterattack. Of course, the fact that they’re really cool to use in Dark Souls 3 and give the player a huge sense of joy when they can chain a bunch of attacks together without any problems also helps.
Furthermore, all Katanas naturally cause bleeding, which is an extra technique that makes them even more useful. Bad guys can try to block or dodge, but these great bent swords from the east let players chase them down and beat them, as well as get through their defenses in more than one way. But it should be said that some try too hard to be unique and lose their ability to be dangerous blades. You should stay away from these and instead use weapons that actually kill enemies instead of ones that just look cool. But at the end of the day, players should always use the weapon that they enjoy rather than the ones that most people agree are the best blades out there.
This Katana was found from a real mound at covenant rank 1. Which can be used as a joke many times. Bloodlust is one of the first weapons of this class that players will come across. Because they can get it by joining the Mound-makers pact very early in the game.
But real bushido fighters should stay away from it because it’s thought to be the worst Katana in the game. Even though it has been fully improved to +5, its physical attack still doesn’t go over 200. It stays at 184. At the A-tier of Dexterity scaling, this isn’t too bad, especially since its weapon skill raises the user’s Attack Rating. However, there are a lot of bad things about using it. Bloodlust is one of the riskiest skills to use in battle because it gives the blade a red aura and a lot of power. But it also hurts the person who is using it and makes them bleed.
Given that using this tool causes you to lose health and gain a status effect, rings are the easiest and most effective way to fight them. Rings like the Prisoner’s Chain that give more maximum health and a few other benefits can help lessen the damage done by the weapon skill.
Of course, this is a weapon that can’t be obtained until the Lord of Hollows ending of the game is reached. However, it can be obtained much earlier by killing Yuria of Londor. But unless the player wants to be perfect or has a personal goal to gather certain weapons. There’s not much reason for them to kill a good trader.
Like Bloodlust, Darkdrift gives up the great Hold skill that most Katanas have in exchange for a special one that isn’t very good most of the time. The skill, which is named after the sword, lets players use a lunging attack that goes around shields and does enough chip damage. At first, this seems helpful, but then you realize that all Katanas already leave a trail of bleed that lets players get around defenses. Also, even though it has a good physical attack (234 when improved to +5). Most other blades of this type are better because it only scales at a C-tier level in Dexterity.
Darkdrift is different from some other Katanas because it also scales with Strength, though only at the D-tier level. So, players can boost their Strength by a few points to slightly raise their Attack Rating. They can also use the Knight’s Ring to do the same thing and instantly gain 5 more Strength points.
The Chaos Blade is back, this time with the power of chaos itself. It can be found at the Untended Graves, which is where the Sword Master would be. If the plan were the same as the Cemetary of Ash. If you’ve played previous games with this double-edged sword, you probably already know how powerful it is and how it can hurt both enemies and the person using it. There is a flat amount of damage that this Katana does with every hit. This damage is not affected by stats or protection. People use less risky moves in fight because this effect happens even if they miss their target.
Many people can still make good use of the Chaos Blade thanks to its Hold skill and long range, as long as they have a way to heal. It can cut enemies into strips thanks to its 180 physical attack and S-tier growth in Dexterity. But it’s not the only Katana that can do this well. There are also stronger ones that don’t hurt their user’s health every time they hit.
The best way to prevent the bad effects of hitting with the Chaos Blade is to slowly heal. For this reason, putting a few points into Faith and using any low-requirement Sacred Chime can be useful. Gentle Prayer is the skill that comes with many Sacred Chimes. It’s a quick and easy way to get some health back for a short time. This kind of trigger will also let you cast the low-requirement miracle (15 Faith) Replenishing. Which works a lot like Gentle Prayer and can be stacked with it for double the health recovery.
It is the longest Katana in the game, so don’t think that the Washing Pole is a weak weapon. It’s great for PVP because it’s easy to catch enemies coming out of rolls. But be aware that it doesn’t last long. You should always have Repair Powder with you. If you want to use this long blade, since it only has 20 in this stat.
After giving the Shrine Handmaid the Easterner’s Ashes, you can buy it from her for 7,500 souls. One of the swords in the game that can do the most damage. It has a physical attack of 223 at +10 and an A-tier scaling effect in Dexterity when mixed with a sharp gem.
One of the few bad things about using the Washing Pole is that it takes a lot more energy to swing than most other Katanas. To make up for this, buffing your green bar in some way can help. Putting on the Chloranthy Ring is a quick and easy way to get more energy back.
This plain-looking sword is the first Katana you can get in Dark Souls 3, and it’s a good choice for anyone who likes Dexterity weapons. It will be hard to get, though. Because the dangerous Sword Master who lives to the left of Firelink Shrine’s main door will drop it every time.
When you think about what a Katana should be like, the Uchigatana does everything right. It has a good range, the Hold skill that lets you hit quickly or easily block. And it can be injected and improved to the highest level possible. When it’s +10 and has a sharp infusion, it has a strong 212 physical attack and an A-tier scaling with Dexterity. Folks who have played Dark Souls for a long time all agree that this is by far the weakest version of the Uchigatana in all three games and Elden Ring. This is a shame because this weapon is supposed to be famous.
Dark Souls 3’s stealth features usually involve sorcery-based tricks or the effect of a piece of gear that makes you invisible (though more like different degrees of transparency). However, players can sneak around more subtly by using the Hold pose. When players use the weapon skill to go into the Hold stance, they crouch down and hold their sheathed Katana. This lets them hide behind low walls and other parts of the world for sneak attacks in PvP.
This endgame Katana was changed from the Soul of Darkeater Midir. It takes a huge 40 Dexterity to even use it. But if you have those stats, the Frayed Blade can be one of the most dangerous allies you can bring into fight. As a result, this abyss-powered tool has a low longevity stat of 20. Make sure you bring a lot of Repair Powder to make up for it.
It has the Hold skill, but a very dangerous version of it that sends shockwaves with its light attack and a devastating chain of cuts with its heavy attack. The light attack is great for stopping enemies who are rolling. Along with its natural bleed effect, the Frayed Blade does dark damage as well, making it very hard for shield users to protect against. On top of that, this sword of darkness has 184 physical attack, 76 dark attack at +5, and an A-tier scaling for dexterity. It does some of the most damage of any blade except for Greatswords and Ultra Greatswords.
If players want to boost their dark attack on this blade to get a higher Attack Rating and a better natural shield penetration, they could wear the Dark Clutch Ring. This ring boosts your dark attack by 8% in PvP. But it also lowers your ability to absorb all physical damage by 15%.
Even though it’s bigger and shorter than most Katanas, the Black Blade can be one of the most deadly tools for sure. It falls from a fake in the Catacombs of Carthus, in a big room with a demon and some skeletons.
Its moves are the opposite of the slash and thrust strong attack routine that other Katanas have. Instead, it starts with a horizontal sweep and ends with a stab. Most of the time, this is better because the bigger opening slash makes it easier to separate enemies. The Blade is one of the most powerful Katanas in 8 Ball Pool. It has a great 225 physical attack with +10 sharp infusion, and it scales at an A-tier in Dexterity.
Just adding a few simple things can sometimes make a build bette. Especially when using one of the best guns in this area. It is still possible to buff the Black Blade after it has been infused. This means that players can use different pine resins and other weapon finishes to briefly raise their Attack Rating.When combined with the Black Blade’s natural bleed effect, Carthus Rouge can be very dangerous to a lot of different types of enemies.
Onikiri And Ubadachi
Onikiri and Ubadachi are the most dangerous of their kind because they deal the most damage per second and have moves and skills that make people more aggressive. When used normally, these two Katanas work like other weapons in the same class. But when used together, they can launch a barrage of attacks that no one can handle for long. If you beat Black Hand Kamui near the roof exit of the Grand Archives, he will drop them.
The shorter of the two blades can only be used at full power by getting right up in the face of an enemy. However, once someone is within this range, they can quickly kill most PvE or PvP threats. Because they have 192 physical attack and A-tier growth in Dexterity, these two weapons work together to deal a lot of damage quickly. The thought of using two katanas at the same time is very appealing. This is one of the main reasons why Dark Souls players love this weapon so much and think it’s the best katana in the game, which is very high praise.
The Onislayer skill is what really makes Onikiri and Ubadachi stand out from other Katanas. It sends the user forward and then unleashes a storm of cuts that do a lot of damage to health and poise. This is a great way to fight and approach an enemy at the same time. And it’s also a very good way to finish them off. Both the Pontiff’s Right Eye Ring and the Pontiff’s Left Eye Ring work well with this weapon. Because they give extra attack power and healing to the person using them as long as they chain hits together, like the Onislayer skill.
