Red Rust Scimitar is a weapon in Dark Souls 2.

 

Curved sword of warrior Vengarl of Forossa.

This sword is battle-worn and terribly rusted,but remains a deadly weapon owing to its incredible weight.

Legend has it that it was built to test the limits of the strength of Forossa knights, until Vengarl swung it about like a wooden plaything, claiming ownership by demonstration. 

Acquired From

  • Sold by Vengarl of Forossa for 7500 souls after defeating his body.
    • Standard: Body is found after defeating the Duke's Dear Freja, in the primal bonfire chamber
    • SOTFS: Body can be found in the shaded woods, after using a Fragrant Branch of Yore on a Lion Warrior statue, following the narrow corridor near Man-Scorpion Tark, where the Gold Lion Warrior was located in the original game.

 

Hints and Tips:

  • Reinforces with twinkling titanite to +5
  • Uses Falchion moveset.
  • Can be used to Power Stance with a large selection of weapons, similarly to the Warped Sword. Works with Red Rust Scimitar in either hand, and uses the Curved Sword L2/LT power stance attack if used with a Dagger/Axe/Thrusting Sword in the other hand. Otherwise the L2/LT attack will be that of the other weapon's type. If used with Red Rust Sword, which ever is in the Right hand will dictate the power stance L2/LT.

      "uses the Curved Sword L2/LT power stance attack if used with a Dagger/Axe/Thrusting Sword in the other hand. Otherwise the L2/LT attack will be that of the other weapon's type." this is completely wrong. i was planning on using this with the gyrm axe for an extremely op power stance for a fun pve playthrough, so i get both weapons and get the stats only to find i have the ultra/great weapon downward slam, so i think i must just be using a special axe and try all the other axes, but they give the regular axe moveset (regardless of which hand each weapon is in). additionally you can use things like straight swords in the left hand and still get the curved sword moveset. so remember to never trust dextra kids

        Question: why this beauty doesn't have a Counter Damage like most of the other Curved Swords? along side with the Red Rust Sword.
        still an amazing weapon for Strength builds tho.
