Dark Souls 3 Best Faith Weapons Stats and Locations [2022]

Last updated:

Dark Souls 3 is the third iteration in the Souls series of video games that continue the same formula but offer much more than its predecessors. Released by FromSoftware and Bandai Namco Entertainment, the game was launched on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC in 2016. Dark souls 3 has tons of weapon types, each having unique weapon art. Regardless of what weapon type you go with, Dark Souls 3 faith weapons are a tad bit better than the others when it comes to killing NPCs in PvE or dominating online players in PvP.

Players can create unique builds with such a wide variety of weapon and armor types in Dark Souls 3. One can go for the luck build, quality build, or the PvP-based Katana build. Of course, creating builds will require the Ashen One to be at a certain level in order to wield particular weapons and wear certain armor pieces. This is achieved pretty easily by farming souls. Even after all that, you may need to have a big health bar and a good number of Estus Flasks to keep replenishing the lost health, and that is why locating the Estus Shards must be kept a priority from the first playthrough.   

Dark Souls 3 Best Faith Weapons

Like our Dark Souls 3 Dex Weapons and best Staff guide, we have come up with ten faith weapons in the game that offer a good value. All of these weapons are the absolute best when it comes to fighting NPCs or dueling the phantoms in Dark Souls 3.

Great Corvian Scythe

One of the many benefits of wielding Great Corvian Scythe is that it can be infused with any infusion. Thus, making this weapon a go-to weapon in nearly every single build in Dark Souls 3. This weapon is an excellent pick for PvP. This weapon has a Dark infusion that allows an Ashen One to pierce through shields and slash enemies quite conveniently. This weapon is not the best pick for PvE, although it gets the job done. So, make sure you know when and where you need to use this weapon.

Great Corvian Scythe – Faith Weapon

The Great Corvian Scythe requires 16 Strength and 18 Dexterity levels. Other than that, one can find this weapon in the Road of Sacrifices, the Untended Graves, and the Grand Archives areas. Corvians creatures mostly dwell in these areas, and they have a higher chance to drop this weapon.

Saint’s Bident

Just like the Great Corvian Scythe, the Saint Bident spear deals average PvE damage. However, this weapon shines in the PvP department. This spear has a great reach; in fact, it has the best reach out of all Dark Souls 3 faith weapons. Most spears in Dark Souls 3 have the highest reach, and this is why Saint’s Bident is the most picked faith weapon in duels and Undead Matches. This weapon can be infused, and hence the overall damage can be significantly increased.  So, infuse this weapon and buff the damage if you are rocking a faith build in Dark Souls 3 while running with a Saint’s Bident weapon.

Saint’s Bident – Faith Weapon

In order to wield the Saint’s Bident weapon, an Ashen One must have 12 Strength, 12 Dexterity, and 16 Faith levels. Other than that, the Saint’s Bident can be found inside the Cathedral of the Deep. It’s precisely located beside one of the chained giants, the one near the blue door. Players need to open the door and go down a stairway to obtain the weapon.

Wolnir’s Holy Sword

The Wolnir’s Holy Sword, just like the Saint’s Bident weapon, also has an excellent reach. If picking faith weapons is your jam, then this one will be a great choice to go with during the mid-game. In the earlier version of Dark Souls 3, Wolnir’s Holy Sword was not as powerful as it became after a series of updates. Most importantly, the spell casting time received a buff that made this faith weapon incredibly powerful in the game. Wolnir’s Holy Sword is not as good as other Dark Souls 3 Faith weapons in PvP. However, its weapon art does excel at taking out large crowds of enemies in PvE.

Wolnir’s Holy Sword – Faith Weapon

Wolnir’s Holy Sword requires a minimum level of 13 Strength, 13 Dexterity and, 13 Faith. This weapon can be directly obtained by killing Wolnir boss and offering its soul to Ludelth the Exiled at the Fire Link Shrine. He transposes the boss’s soul and rewards the Ashen One with Wolnor’s Holy Sword. If you are into Boss Soul Weapons, check our guide as well.

Sunlight Straight Sword

Sunlight Straight Sword weapon is an excellent DPS weapon and deals a decent amount of critical attacks on enemies and PvP opponents. This weapon works similarly to the Sacred Oath miracle on a Faith build, and it buffs the wielder. Additionally, wearing a Hornet ring greatly increases the overall damage of Sunlight Straight Sword. On the subject of rings, check out our Dark Souls 3 Best Rings guide and learn the overall value of all rings in the game.

Furthermore, an Ashen One needs at least 12 Strength, 12 Dexterity, and 16 Faith to become worthy of wielding the Sunlight Straight Sword. The weapon can be easily obtained once players progress to the Lothric Castle. Once there, they need to kill the mimic chest located near the White Dragon.

Dragonslayer Sword Spear

This Sword Spear has an incredible reach. It is also the one-of-a-kind weapon with the most amazing weapon art and a unique moveset in the Dark Souls 3. Dragonslayer Sword Spear’s weapon art summons a lightning bolt from the sky whose attack is based on line of sight, so if the enemy is facing you, he will get hit immediately. Other than that, this weapon cannot be buffed or infused. Regardless of it, Dragonslayer Sword Spear is a stunning Dark Souls 3 faith weapon that resonates well with Faith builds.

In order to wield the mightly Dragonslayer Sword Spear, an Ashen One needs to have at least 16 Strength, 22 Dexterity, and 18 Faith. This may sound a bit too high for a Faith build, but all three stats mentioned above are the perfect combination for AR and Faith. The Dragonslayer Sword Spear can be obtained by offering the Nameless King’s soul to Ludelth the Exiled. He transposes the soul of a mighty warrior and rewards the Ashen One with Dragonslayer Sword Spear.

Morne’s Great Hammer

The Morne’s Great Hammer features incredible poise. While dueling in PvP, an opponent can break the poise by using stronger weapons like Great Swords, Fume Ultra Great Sword, or Smough’s Hammer. Morne’s Great Hammer offers overwhelming physical damage at the cost of 50 Strength. The weapon cannot be infused with magic, pyro, or dark elements, and the only way to upgrade is by using the Twinkling Titanites. Wielding the immensely heavy Morne’s Great Hammer requires an Ashen one to have 50 Strength and 30 Faith.

Morne’s Great Hammer – Faith Weapon

There are two ways to get Morne’s Great Hammer. One is to kill Eygon of Carim directly; once killed, an Ashen One can loot the weapon from the corpse’s body. This can be achieved very early in the game, but an Ashen One is likely not to have the required level to wield it. Also, it is not easier said than done; Eygon of Carim will destroy the Ashen One if he is made an enemy.

The second and the easiest method is to loot the corpse of Eygon of Carim found inside one of the cells of Irina of Carim. This comes very late in Dark Souls 3, and by this time, an Ashen One can accumulate the required souls and level up to wield this weapon.

Dragonslayer’s Axe

The Dragonslayer’s Axe is one of the best Dark Souls 3 Faith weapons that excel at landing high DPS in the game. Compared to other axe weapons in Dark Souls 3, Dragonslayer’s Axe feels a bit faster than most in its category. It is a decent weapon for one versus one scenario and generally a better pick in PvP duels. The Dragonslayer’s Axe requires 14 Strength, and 14 Dexterity levels.

Dragonslayer’s Great Axe

The Dragonslyer Great Axe is a monster of a faith weapon in Dark Souls 3. It has an immensely powerful weapon art, which deals with enormous damage and decent AoE damage. At +5 and 66 Strength, when this weapon is two-handed, it deals a total of 729 damage on a single target. The Dragonslayer Great Axe needs a 40 strength of an Ashen One to be wielded with both hands.

Crucifix of The Mad King

The Crucifix of The Mad King is one of the difficult to master Dark Souls 3 Faith weapons. It has a unique weapon art that differs from most of the weapons belonging to this weapon category. Crucifix Of The Mad King weapon deals Dark Damage by default and amplifies the overall damage to a greater extent. In order to wield this weapon, an Ashen One needs to level up 19 Strength, 10 Intelligence, and 14 Faith points.

Lothric Knight Greatsword

The Lothric Knight Great Sword is arguably the best Dark Souls 3 faith weapon, not because of one, but for many reasons. The insane amount of damage, charged or uncharged, is the first reason why Lothric Knight greatsword receives so much love from Ashen Ones. The second being that it can be infused or buffed with blessed and lightning elements. However, one must always buff Lothric Knight greatsword with the lightning buff. It is because both the blessed and lightning buff deal the same amount of AR.  But the blessed buff requires more grinding to unlock, thus making it less valuable.

Dark Souls 3 Best Faith Weapons
Lothric Knight Greatsword – Faith Weapon

In order to wield the mighty Lothric Knight Greatsword in Dark Souls 3, an Ashen One need to have at least 24 Strength and 16 Dexterity. There are three ways to obtain this weapon in Dark Souls 3:

  • Farm the weapon by killing Lothric Knights. The chances are slim, but you may receive the item much faster if you have a better luck stat.
  • The chances of receiving Lothric Knight greatsword are higher if Ashen Ones kills Lothric Knights at the twin princess bonfire.
  • Buy the Lothric Knight greatsword directly from Greirat of the Undead Settlement if you give them the Greirat’s Ashes.
