"High-quality weapon with a powerful blessing."
How to Get / Where to Find the Astora's Straight Sword
- Can be found in front of the Undead Dragon in the Valley of Drakes.
- Can be acquired very early if you have the Master Key. Go to New Londo Ruins from Firelink Shrine, then head right to the Valley of Drakes and use the Master Key to unlock the gate. This allows you to get to the sword immediately after arriving at Firelink Shrine. The Undead Dragon will wake up (so expect a fight) when the sword is picked up, it is the item on the left out of the two items.
- Since the Undead Dragon can one hit kill a low level character, try to be fast and at least pick up the sword before dying. The item on the right out of the two items is the Dragon Crest Shield which is also a good item. You can pick up both items before the Undead Dragon attacks if you are fast enough. You can pick the sword up without waking the dragon but not the shield.

Hints and Tips:
- Can be given to Kingseeker Frampt to receive 100 Souls.
- Astora's Straight Sword can be upgraded by using Twinkling Titanite.
- This sword is an excellent early game weapon if you have the required 14 Faith to wield it, as it can be acquired earlier than the Drake Sword and does comparable damage, and is much cheaper to upgrade. It does 160 base damage, half physical and half magical and also scales with stats. It also counts as a Divine weapon and is excellent for exploring the Catacombs early, before you even unlock the Divine Ember. The stat scaling is rank C and is not that good, but the base damage on the sword makes up for it.
Unique Upgrades are performed by any Blacksmith or by using the Weapon Smithbox.
