Mail Breaker is a weapon in Dark Souls 2.

 

A slightly stubby thrusting sword. Has a sharp, sturdy blade designed for thrusting. The Mail Breaker has limited reach, but a powerful critical attack. Effective against foes donning thick armor or with naturally hard skin.

Effect: shield piercing (strong attack) 

Acquired From

• Rare drop from Skeletons in Skeleton Lords boss fight.

Hints and Tips

  • Upgraded with regular Titanite to +10.
  • Ignores shields completely.
  • Primarily useful in PvP.
  • Despite its weak damage, it can be used to break the stance of opponents with low poise (such as casters) who hide behind their shields.
  • Despite being a low-end piercing sword it can be thought of as a high-end dagger as it shares the same critical multiplier as many daggers and only weighs 0.5

    • I have a knight / quality / low cleric
      and I'm going to use this weapon as a second weapon, so I want to modify it, but what update should I use? I'm trying to bleed because it's a quick weapon or lightning, but it can be anything
      my statuses are 20 strength- 20 dexterity- 8 intelligence- 25 faith

        It chips through shields while hitting fast as a rapier, it parries LIKE a rapier when two-handed, and it's crits are overwhelming for such an early weapon, and its lightweight to! paired up with a small leather shield, and you'll not need anything else, possibly couple from magic gear, or a bigger primary weapon! Incredible! (I am really surprised how awesome the simplest weapons can be, in a game filled with weapons made directly from the souls of legends, but then again... you are technically making your own legend, so it is fitting I guess.)

          The question becomes "Which turtle soldier?" There are a decent few in both vanilla and Scholar in the forest
