Crossbow wielded by sanctum knights.

Strong attack fires dark bolts.


These guardian knights were sentenced to eternal stewardship of the Sanctum in a clandestine ritual carried out in the great depths, but today the sanctum receives nary visitor.

Hints and Tips:

  • Fires a single precise bolt
  • Two Handed Strong Attack on the supporting hand (If you wield it with left hand then it's located on right hand) fires a

    Dark Orb.

  • Special attack costs 10 durability (or 5 If you have Bracing Knuckle Ring +2)

  • With 53 Int+Faith, special attack fired from Dark Sanctum Crossbow +10 deals approximately 736 damage
  • Infusing the weapon with a Darknight stone reduces the physical damage while adding dark damage to special attack.
  • With 30 Int+Faith, Dark Clutch ring adds 39 dark scaling, increasing it from 84 to 123. This adds roughly 2-300 damage to the special attack.

      Can't seem to be able to increase the attack power of the special attack with either the Blue Dagger, Abyss Seal, or Black Witch Domino Mask. Thought I'd test Ring of Blades and Flynn's also for the sake of it, but unsurprisingly, no change. Perhaps it is only the Dark Clutch Ring that helps.

        Is this good backup weapon for Int character with 10 faith? If so is it better with dark infusion for special or uninfused for bolt shooting? Or maybe(not likely) enchanted?
