Acquired from: Ricard the Archer on top of Sen's Fortress.

Upgrade cost: 200 souls + Titanite.

Notes:
  • If you press R2 (Heavy) once, you will do the standard double thrust BUT if you press R2 (Heavy) again right after the initial attack, you will do another four very fast thrusts. Although easily parried, this is one of the more lethal unique strong attacks in the game.
  • Like all piercing swords, it replaces your kick with a back-stepping horizontal slash attack.

Often used with different buffs since its strong attack can deal incredibly high damage very fast. This makes it useful for killing bosses in PvE even in high NGs and also a deadly PvP weapon when used properly.
