The Grafted Blade Greatsword is a colossal sword in the Elden Ring. Scaling primarily with Dexterity and Strength, the Grafted Blade Greatsword is a good weapon for ominous battles.
With its heavy stats and unique abilities, this weapon was built to destroy all large beasts and enemies it comes into contact with. This greatsword can only be wielded by a worthy warrior and requires high strength stats before it can be used. The Grafted Blade Greatsword can be obtained from one of the seven bosses that must be defeated before Margit, the Lion-like Beast, in a dungeon that makes for a nice appetizer before Stormveil Castle.
How do you get the Grafted Blade Greatsword?
You can get the Grafted Blade Greatsword by defeating the Lion-like Beast boss in Morne Castle on the Weeping Peninsula. To find it you must first reach Castle Morne, located at the southernmost tip of the Weeping Peninsula, a small area south of Limgrave. It is relatively easy to bypass the castle’s ballista defenses by keeping to the right as you approach on horseback. The dungeon itself is simple in design. After taking the elevator up from the entrance, you encounter a large mass of enemies on the right. After that, you get to the back of the courtyard. There is a ladder on the right that leads up to the castle ramparts.
You can only go south there from the top of the ladder. If you go in this direction you have to watch out for flying Misbegottens. At the fork, the right path leads down to a place of grace and the relatively straight path to the boss. The left path leads to Edgar, Irinia’s father and part of her side quest. You should talk to him if you already have the Grafted Blade Greatsword with you to progress in this adventure. The boss area for the Lion-like Beast is on the right side. He’s a fast and aggressive opponent, but only a moderately difficult Eldenring boss. Defeat him and he leaves the Grafted Blade Greatsword for the player.
