Fume Sword is a weapon in Dark Souls 2.

 

Straight sword forged from the soul of the fume knight, and imbued with the Dark of Nadalia.

The exile swordsman Raime had the ability to expunge the black fog, but chose instead to live alongside it, in the company of the child of Dark that haunts this sword.

Hints and Tips:

  • Has slightly more range than the Drakekeepers Sword making it the longest straight sword.
  • Upgraded with Petrified Dragon Bones.
  • Consumes vastly more stamina than most other straightswords while dealing modest damage unless dark infused.
  • Has above average poise damage and one of only four straight-swords with 120 counter damage.
  • Has the same moveset as Sun Sword.
  • While having less scaling than the Crypt Blacksword, this weapon requires a much lower stat investment, which makes it a viable side arm for a dedicated hexer when dark infused and buffed.
  • For Dex dedicated hexers, DO NOT infuse with Dark, use Dark Pine Resin to pull this sword to full potential while retaining its S scaling on Dex. Infusing with Dark drops Dex scaling to A and Dark scaling only improves to B
  • One of the few weapons to share a moveset with the shortsword.  Debatably a more useful moveset than that of other straight swords, and certainly one that makes better use of the Fume Sword's additional length

      I'm not sure because Dark Souls 2 is the newest Dark Souls to me but holy **** it feels like there are so many dex weapons and not a lot of anything else

        "For Dex dedicated hexers..." Thats not a thing. If you are dumping a lot of points into dex, you wont be a hexer. All those valuable souls go into Int/Faith/At and whatever Vig/End you can squeeze out.

          I don't know if this got nerfed or what, but it's got crap damage. Comes with dark damage, yet when infused with dark the scaling does not increase. When fully upgraded and not infused, at 60 dex, even though it claims to have S scaling, my normal +9 dagger does more damage. Really horrible weapon. I can find no use for it, so it goes in buried in the box. However, it's easy to find, all you need to do is sort by attack and at +5 it's located near the bottom close to the completely un-upgraded ladle and parry dagger. Do not waste your time with this weapon.

            Even with S scalling, it's not all that good to a pure dex build. You're better of using a katana, curved dragon greatsword or Black Knight halberd

              This thing seems best used elegantly with counter punching. It sometimes feels like a cross between a spear and a long sword, and when it's just one opponent, that r2 counter *****s folks up. But against mobs, well... you'd better be good at managing your movement.
