A leather whip that has seen plenty of use.

It appears no different than an ordinary whip, but is charmed by an ancient blessing that boosts damage inflicted on Hollows.


The blessing is likely the work of a cleric, but whether the spell is good or evil is unclear.

Effect: attack boost against Hollows.

Hints and Tips:

  • Upgraded with Twinkling Titanite
  • The whip loses durability very quickly if used against enemies with a large degree of armor. It loses durability at a regular pace against enemies with no armor.
  • This weapon has 350 + 71 Attack Rating at 40 dexterity
  • At 20 Dex and 78 Faith, the lightning Old Whip +5 has an attack rating of 260 (245+17) physical damage, and 296 (245+51) lightning damage, a very good weapon in PvE (only on enemies without armor) and PvP.
  • The sprint R1 does almost a full 180 attack which is very strong in pvp.
  • This whip is very desirable for a character based on whip use, as it has the highest physical damage of any whip at +5.

      Old Whip [DKS2 Wiki]29 Sep 2017 04:17  

      Definitely a Castlevania reference. I made a Simon Belmont build based on this one weapon. I feel like they made it harder to acquire this weapon in SotFS. I had multiple copies for all the different characters I made in the original 360 version. Now I can't get one to save my life. 5 Demon greathammers, 3 channeled tridents, dozens of petrified dragon bones but not a single Old Whip... Either the RNG gods hate me or it doesn't exist in the SotFS version of the game... ::sigh::
