Where to Find Bloody Slash in Elden Ring

  1. Reach Fort Haight West.

    You can do this by traveling east of First Step, the Site of Grace with White Faced Varré, passing the Dragon-Burnt Ruins, and coming up to the outskirts of the Mistwood. You could also teleport to the nearby Site of Grace if you grabbed it beforehand. Elden Ring Where to Find Bloody Slash

  2. Fight your way inside from the front (or behind).

    You’ll encounter demi-humans trying to get inside the fort as Godrick soldiers push them back down a slope of wooden barricades. You can choose to fight your way up, eventually running into a Troll before getting inside. Another way is rushing up the hill, cutting left, and jumping over rocks to sneak around the perimeter to pick them off from behind.  Elden Ring Where to Find Bloody Slash

  3. Make your way up the stairs inside while getting rid of the rats and bomb-slinging commoners around you.

  4. Face off against the Godrick Knight at the top.

    Watch out for the Godrick Knight’s sweeping and lunging blood attacks. You could summon Spirit Ashes if you’re having trouble with landing hits or stay at long-range to whittle down its health bar. Once the knight is defeated, you’ll gain the Ash of War: Bloody Slash. From the nearest Site of Grace, you can put it on your weapon, but be aware that the skill will sap your health on execution. Elden Ring Where to Find Bloody Slash
