 Seawolf Cutlass in Salt and Sanctuary is a Greatsword type weapon.


A horrifically warped cutlass pried from the cold, dead hands of Dread Pirate Hager... or what remained of him. Throughout the continents it is often said that there are fates worse than death. This mangled blade and its grotesquely-mutilated former owner are chilling proof of that somber adage.


Notes and Tips:

  • At 50 STR this weapon will have an Attack of 145.3.
  • Two-handing a weapon increases Strength by 50% for damage scaling, meaning you only need 34 Strength to reach the 50 Strength soft cap when two-handing a weapon.
  • Heals for 0.5 health per hit.
  • Has the highest base damage of any greatsword, which synergizes well with consumable buff items like the blessed page.

        I found myself dissatisfied with the stat balance of most other greatswords and stuck to upgrading my Shrouded Bulwark for roughly half the game, but hiring an alchemist to transmute my Bulwark into the Cutlass was hands-down the single best transmutation I ever committed to.

        Although ludicrously hard-hitting in its own right due to its second-to-none base damage, if you devote your build to this sword with significant Strength investment (enough to wield it in one hand it without struggle), full upgrades, the endurance boost and stamina cost rings especially, and whatever charms would be best suited to you or what your need to kill, you'll find yourself ripping through grunts and kings alike.

        Fair warning though, developing your skills and equipment like I described with this sword WILL render a small number of the Island's bosses trivially easy to defeat. Very much worth it though if, like I did, you intend to make the Island and its forces pay in blood and salt for what has been done to you.

          this sword served me very well. well enough until sharfricter came along... sorry seawolf cutlass, but, your just not as good as Sharfricter.

          • Once buffed, this is the sword with the highest AR in the game. That being said, the Shrouded Bulwark is very little behind as it also has a high base damage and strong buff but you can get it wayyyyy sooner. And with their Fast Hitter, the Trinity Blade and Schar actually outclass it in the long run. Not bad, but if you already have the Shrouded Bulwark and want to upgrade to this, I would recommend you wait on the Scharfrichter or Trinity Blade.

              Best Greatsword in terms of raw damage once you add divine blessed weapon and golden wine, thanks to its high base damage
