Description

Weapon that allows its wielder to evoke an art unique to Londor, the land of the Hollow. It is also said to be an ancient relic of a Primordial Serpent.

The Dark Hand mercilessly saps the essence of its victims, and can also double as a special shield. Cannot be used two handed.


Location

Bought from Yuria of Londor for 12,500 souls.


Weapon Notes

Cannot be two handed.

Low stability and absorption renders Dark Hand a subpar blocking tool, and low damage due to lack of reinforcement also makes it a subpar primary weapon.


Moveset

As Weapon Arts are mapped to (SHIFT)+RMB | L2 | LT, this area will not be shown.
