This weapon is a heavy sword that takes a great deal of stamina and strength to wield. It may not be too useful for those who prefer to use magic or stay quick on their feet, but for anyone looking to deal raw damage that quickly staggers foes, this is a great pick. Interestingly enough, this weapon is also a direct nod to the late Kentaro Miura and his landmark manga series Berserk, which focused on a traveling swordsman wielding a massive sword.
This weapon is located in the Caelid region east of Limgrave. From the Warmaster's Shack in Limgrave, you follow the road heading west, and once you see that the atmosphere has changed to a blood-red sky, you'll know that you're getting close.
Daggers in Elden Ring can be somewhat tricky to use effectively. While they are the fastest blade weapons, they tend to lack the range and attack power of other melee options. That said, daggers can still deal quick damage with the right build and land an effective backstab for big damage. One dagger, in particular, does a lot to make up for range and attack power, and that's the Reduvia. This evil-looking dagger can inflict serious damage fast, and it's able to spew out blood attacks that can inflict blood loss damage.
This dagger is one of the easier weapons to find, as you won't have to go too far from the beginning of the game.
You can get the game's first twinblade-type weapon in Elden Ring's opening area, and it's very easy to miss. The Twinblade is a double-sided sword that caters to strength and dexterity builds, resulting in fast and heavy damage that will give you a large area of effect. The quick strikes can easily overwhelm enemies, allowing you to lay in a lot of damage in multiple hits.
To find this weapon, make your way to the Dragon Burnt Ruins in the southern part of the lake in Limgrave. While you may be aware of the chest trap, there is another weapon here that's free for the taking. Head to the southern part of the ruins, and you'll find a ruined building with no entryways to get into.
Located in the Tombsward Ruins, along the peninsula's northern coast, the Winged Scythe is locked in a chest underneath the destroyed temple. Once you clear out the enemies, you can descend into the ruins to grab the weapon. Along with being great at balancing magic and melee damage, it also deals Holy Damage.
Katana - Moonveil
To find the Moonveil, you'll once again need to head to Caelid. However, it's recommended that you level up enough to stand a chance against some of the region's bosses. You'll need to defeat the Magma Wyrm in Caelid's Gael Tunnel, a cave dungeon located just on the border of Limgrave and Caelid, directly south of Shack of the Rotting. After defeating the Magma Wyrm, the Moonveil will be acquired shortly after.
Sword of Night and Flame
To get this weapon, you'll need to make it to Caria Manor, located just north of the Liurnia of the Lakes region. This particular location is especially dangerous, as you'll have to deal with ghost knights and a plethora of creepy hand/spider hybrid monsters that like to hide in the dirt. Once you make it to the second floor, you'll come across a stone pathway populated by ghost soldiers.
