The Falchion is a Curved Sword in Demon's Souls.

Description[]

In-Game Description

A standard curved sword.
A slashing weapon that inflicts heavy damage upon soft flesh but has a limited effect on metal armor and hard scales. In addition, it causes its targets to bleed.


Availability[]

Characteristics[]

The Falchion is a midway point between the Scimitar and Kilij in terms of damage and attack range. The Crescent Falchion is notorious as one of the most powerful early-game weapons, even for characters with little Magic to speak of. However, as a typical weapon, it's outclassed by the Kilij, and should be swapped as soon as stats allow.

Upgrades[]

The Falchion has seven upgrade paths: Basic, Crescent, Mercury, Moon, Quality, Sharp, and Tearing. Additionally, it can be transformed with a Demon's Soul.

Basic[]

Requires Sharpstone
