Chaos Blade is a weapon in Dark Souls 2.

 

A Katana of unknown origin. Damage to foes also damages its owner.

The peculiar pattern upon the blade suggests the sinister nature of this cursed blade.

It is an alluring vortex and a lonely soul.

Acquired From

  • Weaponsmith Ornifex, traded for Old Witch Soul and 10,000 souls.
  • Can only be acquired in NG+ and beyond or by using Bonfire Ascetic at the Sinner's Rise bonfire in a normal game.

 

Hints and Tips:

  • Reinforced with Petrified Dragon Bone to +5.
  • Successful hits also damage the wielder (50 HP). Self damage will still be applied when attacking destructible objects, but not when attacking indestructible objects. You can be killed by the self damage.
  • The self damage can be offset by using the Ring of the Evil Eye or Ring of Restoration as well as Resplendent Life and Replenishment.
  • The 2-handed strong attack has excellent direction control and can be used to bait opponents into approaching into range. A successful hit can almost always be followed by a second strong attack to deal a substantial amount of damage.
  • The 1-handed strong attack in turn has excellent forward range but is hard to track without using lock on. However, because it's a thrust attack, it benefits from the boost of the Old Leo Ring. When stacked with Ring of Blades and hitting an enemy on counter damage animation, the player can double the damage they would deal normally.
  • As of Regulation 1.08, Chaos Blade now receives S Dexterity scaling. At Normal + 5 and 50 DEX, the weapon has an attack rating of 374. With the Ring of Blades +2, the attack rating is 424. Self damage 30 -> 50.
  • The blade's length is longer than the Blacksteel Katana and shorter than the Washing Pole; also handy for dual wielding.
  • Has slightly (10) more counter damage, more durability and less weight than the Blacksteel Katana, making it a good alternative if the HP loss is not a concern for the player.

      the only chaos blade in the serie that makes sense. Big damage, can be infused and buffed. Self damage can be conrolled with gem stones.

        You know it's me how this word remained intact as it passed on from user to user throughout the entirety of the dark souls series it really makes me wonder who made the sword and who wielded it before anyone else did

          Thought it was gonna be a ***** to get early on. And then I realized Lucatiel exists, best waifu 10/10 will never kill you for your armor and sword again probably.

            Honestly one of my favorite weapons to use in PvP, and while not great for PvE, still fun. I like the drawback of having to consider my HP every time I hit instead of mindlessly R1/running attack/etc, even if it is minimal. Getting a higher faith stat or maxing out on dark and infusing this with the relative element feels great for PvP, especially when running into people running extremely tanky builds.

            I think the mix-ups with this weapon are great, and the 2 handed heavy attacks are honestly too much fun to not use. Especially at higher levels, getting to that 50 dex + 50 faith or 40/40 for dark, this weapon can take people out in nearly two hits. As far as Katanas go this one is easily tied for #1, if not the #1 spot.
