Arced Sword is a weapon in Dark Souls 2.

 

A curved greatsword forged from the soul of the Flexile Sentry. There is something unsettling, and at the same time beautiful, about its long curved blade.

Long ago, the dungeons overflowed with the accused, and the King commanded a contorted sentry to deliver those who had no cells to a faraway land, and to make certain they were never heard from again.

Scholar of the First Sin changed to:

A curved greatsword forged from the soul of the Flexile Sentry. There is something unsettling, and at the same time beautiful, about its long curved blade.

The sentry crammed inmates of the overflowing Bastille onto a rickety ship, and cast them out to the open sea.

The majority of them drowned or starved but a few hardy survivors made land to the south, and imparted their knowledge of sorcery to the people there.

      So the ArSed Sword (hehe Arse get it?) is a giant looking scimitar, amazing with fashion souls, can't be buffed but it can be reinforced, has the same move set as Murakamo, they patched it just so it could be a little bit stronger tha Murakamo because it's a boss weapon, the most desired thing I wanted from this was this sword powerstadning it with the second ArSed Sword to have a unique secret power stance move that nobody knows and need sto be discovered (like with the Majestic GS). I literally thought that if I power stand two of those great curved blades I would get that crazy helicopter move that Flexile Sentry has when he doeas the grab atack on you.

        You gotta love how sometimes a kid in these comments appears saying stuff like
        "Nobody asked"
        Or "Your mom"
        What a nice member of the community

          I’ll have to go for a Strength & Dex build next time, so I can try using the Arched Sword instead of the Murakumo. It may do slightly more damage, but I can manage.
