Crystal Straight Sword is a Weapon in Dark Souls and Dark Souls Remastered.


A fully crystallized straight sword. How such a weapon was created is entirely unknown."
"The crystallization boosts its attack, but makes the blade brittle. The sword cannot be used for long, as it cannot be repaired."


How to Get / Where to Find the Crystal Straight Sword


Hints and Tips:

  • Can be given to Kingseeker Frampt to receive 10 Souls.
  • Like all Crystal weapons and armor, cannot be upgraded or repaired.
  • Not as effective as the Crystal Greatsword, since in the boss fights where it's damage is relevant, the sword and board playstyle usually isn't very helpful. However, it can be a potent throwaway weapon for dealing with regular mobs during early game, being equivalent to a Longsword +8. By the time this sword starts dropping from enemies (The Duke's Archives), it is mediocre at best, though tolerable if you feel the need to use a fast weapon.
  • Be wary when seeing this weapon in PvP, for it is rarely actually used. Instead, it is most likely a hacked version that does ~900 damage while in one hand. However it swings slightly slower than most Straight Swords.

      Can anyone confirm if this counts as a crystal upgrade path weapon in remastered, thus changing your weapon matchmaking to the lvl 4-15 range?
      I think I may have messed up my low level invasion character by buying this from Domhall.
      I had kept everything no higher than +5 to match with +0-11 weapon levels.
      I swear it seems like I don't find invasions as easily since buying it.

      • Despite having decent scaling and low stat requirements to be serviceable for a early game weapon. However, the downsides out weights the positives. It's damage output for mid game like anor Londo is miserable, it can't be repaired nor upgrade making this weapon extremely limited. Use this weapon only at early game or use the balder side sword since it's possible to get it in early game while being useful for endgame due to its higher damage output.

          Anyone else irritated Crystal weapons still can't be repaired? Am I the only one? Magic and many other unrealistic things are reality in Dark Souls. So why can't crystal weapons be repaired? :/
