Most Powerful Underrated Weapons in Elden Ring
Players in Elden Ring can choose from a wide range of weapons. In fact, there are around 309 weapons in the game that are categorized into 31 different types. Check out the most powerful underrated weapons below and find what you’re missing out on!
Fallingstar Beast Jaw
First on the list, the Fallingstar Beast Jaw is a colossal weapon with strength, dex, and intelligence attributes. This weapon deals physical and magical damage. The weapon’s skill Gravity Bolt is useful for both PVE and PVP because of its range. To get this weapon, head to the crater of Mount Gilmer where the boss fight will be. The boss will drop the weapon when you defeat it.
Bloodhound’s Fang is a curved great sword. Despite it being heavy, it scales with strength and dex. This weapon causes blood loss buildup and can be deadly when utilized properly. The weapon’s skill Bloodhound’s Finesseconsists of a back-flip attack which deals great damage in both PVE and PVP.
You can get this weapon early in the game, located at Forlorn Hound Evergaol in Limgrave. Go to the entrance found in the middle and defeat the boss to obtain the weapon.
The Cross-Naginata is one of the best weapons in the game. Surprisingly, not many people use it. This weapon is a mix of a spear and a katana. This also causes blood loss buildup. Like other bleed weapons, Sepukku, one of the best Ash of War, can be used with it.
To get the Cross-Naginata, head to the Gael Tunnel. Enter the mine and follow the path. When you reach the first staircase going downstairs, move to the right instead of going down the second staircase until you reach a dead-end where a huge monster will be waiting but you don’t have to fight the monster. Simply go to the right side of the monster where a skeleton is found. You will see the weapon there.
Margott’s Cursed Sword
Margott’s Curse Sword is also an arcane weapon with blood loss buildup. Since this is a curved great sword, it has a similar move to Bloodhound’s Fang but only slower. This could be good for PVP. On the other hand, Its Ash of War, the Cursed-Blood Slice, is both good for PVE and PVP.
To get this weapon, you need to defeat Margott, which is part of the game. He is located towards the Erdtree at the end of Leyndell. After defeating him, bring the Remembrance Soul to the Fingers and exchange it for the weapon.
Zamor Curved Swords
The Zamor Curved Swords is a frost weapon that causes frost buildups. It scales with strength and dex and comes with the Zamor Ice Stormas its Ash of War. It procs the frost effect and can stagger enemies, dealing consistent damage. To acquire this weapon, head to the Giant-Conquering Hero’s Grave and defeat the final boss.
Genshin Impact: Sandglass Dendroculus Puzzle Guide
Get rewarded for clearing this new exploration-based mechanic.
Primal Sandglasses are a new mechanic for exploration that you’ll find in the Ruins of King Deshret. Flipping one will start a timed challenge where you’ll need to flip other Primal Sandglasses. Doing so within the time will grant you a reward.
In this guide we’ll teach you how to beat one of these challenges.
The Sandglass Location
To find the Primal Sandglass that rewards you with a Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest you’ll want to go west of The Mausoleum of King Deshret.
Get to the red-circled area – there’s a Four-Leaf Sigil around to make the travel faster. You’ll end in an area with one of the squared-floor panels that you can activate by interacting with the book front of it. This will create an updraft that will get you to a Dendroculus waiting on top, plus a Forged Primal Light.
From that position you can look at the second area, the one we encircled in a blue circle in the first image. Take the Forged Primal Light to the panel there to create a Primal Sandglass.
The Sandglass Time Trial Challenge
Once you flip the Primal Sandglass you’ll have29 seconds to flip the other two. It may look simple, but there’s invisible walls that’ll make tricky getting to the others.
First you’ll want to do a straight-line run towards where the red arrow points: the part where you can see stone steps rather than sand.
From here turn to the right and keep going forward until you crash against the invisible wall. Then employ some wall-hugging: move while sticking close to the wall so that at the moment it stops being there, your character will get past it to the other side.
When you ‘see’ the door get past it and turn back in direction to the hourglass. This time the wall will be to the right-side of your character. Make your way to the Sandglass normally, and we’re on to the last one.
From that sandglass you’ll run straight to the second batch of stone-floor.
At that point, turn 90° degrees to the right until you see another invisible wall flare up blue. You’ll turn 90° degrees to your right again. Make sure to wall-hug a little so that you can see where the wall ends.
After you’ve cleared the wall do a full turn around, leaving it to left-side of your body and run in a straight line like you were trying to get the torch close to the last Sandglass. You’ll be clear off the wall in a matter of seconds and you can make a beeline for the last Sandglass. Flip it.
Now just walk forward in the direction of the Four-Leaf Sigil, but don’t use it. If you look down you’ll be able to see the Dendroculus and an Exquisite Chest to its right.
