How to get the Godslayer’s Greatsword? (Elden Ring)
To obtain this greatsword, you must first get to the Divine Tower of Caelid. This tower is located in the central northern part of the Calydus region. It is located next to the map obelisk and is hard to miss due to its enormous height. To enter the tower, you’ll have to use Torrent to jump onto a root that sticks out of the ground. Jump from the root to the next ledge with an enemy and a fire on it. Follow the path upwards and you will find the Grace Place.
After you enter the tower, follow the path down. To do this, you will have to make a series of jumps over various ledges. Once you reach the bottom, you’ll find another grace place. Make sure to rest in it. You will now have to deal with the Godskin Apostle boss. You may have seen this boss as a field boss in Windmill Village. It is much harder to fight in this room. Bring a friend with you if you need to. After defeating the boss, enter the next room and open the chest to get a two-handed sword.
Where to find the Godslayer’s Greatsword in Elden Ring
The Godslayer’s Greatsword is a colossal sword in Elden Ring. It requires 20 Strength and Faith and 22 Dexterity. It deals physical damage and fire damage. To get the weapon, you must defeat the Divine Leather Boss Apostle, located at the base of the Divine Caelid Tower. To enter the Divine Caelid Tower, you’ll have to jump from the root of a tree that extends from the mainland to one of the tower’s ledges. From this ledge you’ll have to park your way to the top, climb ladders and cross ledges.
After you reach the top, rest in grace, turn left and go down the stairs to enter the divine tower. We recommend killing the enemies here, as they will follow you and interrupt your descent into the divine tower. Jump onto the platforms. One of the platforms will collapse, but don’t worry, the fall won’t kill or even hurt you.
After you fall, you can find a ledge below you, jump on it, then on the extinguished torch and again on the next platform in front of you. From here, jump back down and get to a red-maned soldier. You will see a pressure plate that can summon an elevator for you. Use the elevator and turn left from the corridor it will take you to and continue.
The descent pattern is the same as before, but the platforms are easier to spot. Another platform will drop into this section, so don’t worry and just keep going. At the end, you will see another elevator that will take you to the basement of the Caelid Tower Grace. From here it is easy to go to the Godskin Apostle Boss. After defeating the boss, enter the room behind him and open the chest to get the Godslayer’s Great Sword.
