"An extremely sturdy pitch-black straight sword.
Colossal warriors staunchly watch over the shrine, ready to defend its resident, or allow one worthy enough to be granted audience."

Hints and Tips:

  • Reinforced with regular Titanite to +10.
  • Has a complete suite of slashing attacks and consumes slightly more stamina than most straight swords, the same as the Broadsword and Black Dragon Sword.
  • This weapon is very similar to the Broadsword, including in moveset. However, the main difference besides a tiny advantage in both physical damage and poise damage, is that the Drakekeeper's Sword is considerably longer than the Broadsword, giving the weapon above average range. Combined with the Broadsword moveset, this weapon is actually a fairly versatile and effective weapon overall, mainly let down by the fact that it has no long-range thrusting move.
  • At Normal +10 with 40 Strength and 40 Dexterity the Drakekeeper's Sword has an Attack Rating of 350 (245+105), exactly as much as the Sun Sword.
