What are the best weapons in the oath of vengeance Elden ring? There is no simple answer to this very important question. There are many different types of weapons in the Elden Ring, each with specific strengths and weaknesses to suit different structures and situations.
Below we have compiled what we hope will be the ultimate guide to the best weapons in Oath of Vengeance Elden Ring, updated to the latest version of the game – patch 1.04. We’ll guide you through some of the best weapons in the game, and exactly where to find each of them.
The Best Weapons in Oath of Vengeance Elden Ring
The weapons in Elden Ring are very complex things. Not only do different weapons deal different types of damage and size with different attributes, but they also differ in terms of attack speed, attack type, range, status effects, skills, and more.
Below we have listed the best weapons in the game, arranged in different categories, such as the best weapons in Oath of Vengeance Elden Ring, and the best early game weapons. But some of these weapons are so powerful that they go beyond these categories. So before we start in earnest, here is my personal list of the best weapon in the oath of vengeance Elden ring.
Best Weapons in Oath of Vengeance Elden Ring
- Bloodhound’s Fang
- Rivers Of Blood
- Sacred Relic Sword
- Sword Of Night And Flame
Now let’s learn a little more about these and other top Elden Ring weapons, and how to get your hands on them.
Best early weapons in Elden Ring
An early dagger that also happens to be one of the best weapons in the game, Reduvia’s call to fame is its unique skill, which gives you the ability to launch potent ranged bleed attacks.
- Weight: 2.5
- Type: Dagger (Unique)
- Requirements: 5 Str, 13 Dex, 13 Arc
- Damage Type: Slash, Pierce
- Passive: Bleed (50)
Reduvia Blood Blade – Slash with the wicked dagger, transforming its never-drying bloodstains into airborne blood blades that cause hemorrhaging. Can be fired in rapid succession.
Being a dagger, Reduvia is capable of very quick attacks, which allows you to stack bleed very efficiently on a target. It may lack the range of most weapons, but that weakness is ameliorated by the Reduvia Blood Blade skill. This skill has a low FP cost and can be spammed very effectively, giving you a very powerful mid-range weapon that remains effective even into the mid-to-late game if you keep leveling up the weapon.
How to get Reduvia
To get Reduvia, you must defeat Bloody Finger Nerijus outside Murkwater Cave in Limgrave. When you approach the cave entrance from the river for the first time, you’ll be invaded by Nerijus, who uses Reduvia against you. Defeat him to claim the powerful blade for yourself.
The Uchigatana is the first and simplest of the katana weapons in Elden Ring, but it’s tremendously powerful in its own right. This weapon has become the go-to early-game blade for many an Elden Ring player.
- Weight: 5.5
- Type: Katana
- Damage Type: Slash, Pierce
- Passive: Bleed (45)
- Requirements: 11 Str, 15 Dex
Unsheathe – Skill of swordsmen from the Land of Reeds. Sheathe blade, holding it at the hip in a composed stance. Follow up with a normal or strong attack to perform a swift slash attack.
Don’t let its simple nature fool you: the Uchigatana is a tremendously versatile weapon with no real downside, and you can quite happily use it throughout the entire game, all the way up to Malenia, Blade Of Miquella, and beyond. It has a good range, a nice bleed effect, low requirements, and decent scaling, and you can put most Ashes Of War onto it to adapt it to your particular playstyle. What’s not to like?
How to get the Uchigatana
The Uchigatana is the starting weapon for the Samurai class (lucky them!), but if you don’t start as a Samurai you can still get hold of it
Head to the Deathtouched Catacombs in northern Limgrave. Partway into this mini-dungeon, you’ll enter a room with an elevated platform, from which skeleton archers shoot down at you. Keep progressing through the Catacombs and you’ll eventually reach this elevated platform. Kill the skeletons, then loot the body hanging over the edge of the platform. On this corpse is the Uchigatana.
The Great Épée is a powerful early-game thrusting sword with an excellent reach and a versatile moveset that is excellent for 1v1s and fighting while outnumbered.
- Damage Type: Standard, Pierce
- Weight: 6.5
- Type: Heavy Thrusting Sword
- Requirements: 15 Str, 16 Dex
Impaling Thrust – Skill that lets piercing armaments overcome enemy shields. Build power, then lunge forward for a long thrust that pierces an enemy’s guard.
The Great Épée is the earliest of the Heavy Thrusting Swords in Elden Ring, a weapon type characterized by their excellent ranged thrust attacks. It hits hard, and its light attacks are surprisingly nimble for a weapon of its size. Like the Uchigatana, when fully leveled the Great Épée can contend with any boss in the game.
How to get the Great Épée
The Great Épée can be found in an encampment a short distance northeast of the Forlorn Hound Evergaol at the bottom of Limgrave. Next to some ruins are a couple of tents guarded by a handful of mercenaries. Defeat them, then open the chest under the right-hand tent to obtain the Great Épée.

Prelate’s Inferno Crozier
Very high strength requirements should give you an idea of the awesome power of the Prelate’s Inferno Crozier, a massive fiery hammer that can send smaller enemies flying into the air.
- Weight: 23.5
- Damage Type: Strike
- Type: Colossal Weapon
- Requirements: 45 Str, 8 Dex
Prelate’s Charge – Slam armament into the ground to create a surge of flames, then charge in. Hold to continue the charge.
As with most high-strength weapons in Elden Ring, the Prelate’s Inferno Crozier is a very slow weapon to wield. But it deals tremendous damage with each hit, and with heavy attacks, it can easily break even large enemies’ stances. The Prelate’s Charge skill is also a fun one, allowing you to lead a fiery charge towards (and through) an enemy before ending with a large uppercut strike.
How to get the Prelate’s Inferno Crozier
To get the Prelate’s Inferno Crozier, you need to defeat the Fire Prelate inside Fort Laiedd on the west coast of Mt Gelmir. The outside of the fort is guarded by Flame Chariots and other enemies, but you can easily avoid most of them and simply enter the fort to fight the Prelate alone.
There are many different types of weapons in the Elden Ring, each with specific strengths and weaknesses to suit different structures and situations.
