Alabaster Lord's Sword is a Greatsword in Elden Ring. The Alabaster Lord's Sword scales primarily with Strength and secondarily with Dexterity and Intelligence.

 

Greatsword forged from a blue-white meteoric ore.
The blade conceals gravity-manipulating magic.

A weapon unique to the Alabaster Lords, a race of ancients with
skin of stone who were said to have risen to life when a meteor
struck long ago.

 

Where to Find Alabaster Lord's Sword in Elden Ring

The Alabaster Lord's Sword weapon can be found at the following location:

  • Awarded upon killing Alabaster Lord in the Lake of Rot. You have to raise the platforms to get up to him by stepping on the buttons around the swamp. There are two buttons that are next to small columns or obelisks. Once you get raised on the platform, take on the long and narrow path, after a few meters you will be greeted by this enemy. Kill him to obtain the Alabaster Lord's Sword. Note: If Alabaster Lord dies after you die the sword will not drop. [Elden Ring Map here]
  • Awarded upon killing Alabaster Lord in Yelough Anix Tunnel. [Elden Ring Map here]

Below shows where the platform activation is at.  You will know it it the correct one if it lifts you up with it.  It has a ladder to climb down from it on the South West corner.

      This weapon is better than it looks on paper, but still a bit underwhelming. Would be cool and unique if it did Strike damage with the greatsword since this thing looks dull as hell.

      • Anonymous

        So close to being a decent str int weapon. Needs more magic damage and int scaling, then it could be great

        • Unfortunately I can confirm that the R2 to R1 combo was accidentally patched out with the greatsword buffs of 1.09, which is damn shame because this thing would have been a beast with usable R2's.

            So tried my lightning build on this and ice lightning spear did nothing just like ADLS.
            Dude went through the animation but the effect didnt appear anywhere.

              This weapon now becomes a monster after 1.09. Spamming heavy attack and you can stagger human size enemies infinitely.

                RIP R2-R1 true combo. At least standing and running R2's come out faster now, but it can't threaten two different ~1000 damage moves at the same time.

                  This sword has a few niche things going for it. It's the lightest greatsword at only 8. The fact that you can get two of them in a single playthrough means you can dual wield both, kinda like mini Starscourge Greatswords in terms of them both having physical and magic damage plus a similar AoW though without the followup slam. They do have the advantage of being able to utilize dual wielded L1 attacks unlike the SSGS and both combined are still lighter at 16 vs 20. Pretty good.

                    Sorry for wall of text y’all, but this is one of the most underrated weapons in the game. Absolutely incredible MV and poise damage on fully charged R2 and if you love the Greatsword move set you’ll love this one. And you get two per NG!


                    If trying to get as early as possible, rush to get Meteoric Ore blade to +4 via iji’s sombers, +6 at wolf+dead man in Mt Gelmir and +5 at Redmane. Kill sleepy mama dragon for runes, and then sprint through all of Radahn -> Ranni’s quest (meteoric ore blade makes Radahn notably easier and scales similarly to this one). Once you reach the lake of rot (where alabaster sword is) you’ll essentially have enough sombers to bring your new Alabaster Sword to +9 and slap everything with it.


                    Next grab axe talisman, charged attack and poise damage physik tears, and it’s smooth sailing from there. Reached Mohg the Omen in about 3hrs from character start (obv can be done faster but for me that’s not bad lmao).


                    This sword might be my new fav in all honesty.

                      It says the only thing setting it apart is its ash of war when in reality its 2 handed heavy attacks hit for as much as a colossal does and does more poise damage than them the only thing that out classes this in poise damage is the great club colossal this weapon slaps bosses around

                      • Anonymous

                        Attacks cost less stamina do more poise damage than others and it has a true combo attack from is 2 handed r2 to its r1 plenty of things set this apart from the moonlight and the helphenes wiki needs changing

                        • Anonymous

                          Wiki should be updated it says that the only trait setting itself apart from helphenes steeple and the moonlight is its aow but infact it has a 2handed r2 that true combos into the r1 if if lands and on top of that this things 2 handed R2s do the second most poise damage in the game yes even more than colossal swords the only thing thats better is the greatclub colossal

                            The ash of war is really fun for pulling people off ledges. And the R2 combos into the R1. Very underrated.

                              Everybody's talking about this weapon as if it's an int tool. It's a strength weapon demanding an investment into int, or as is clearly the theme, it's a gravity weapon. You're meant to sprinkle some int in there, but then focus on the physical end of the tools.

                              And don't mention Astel's weapons. Those are outliers. Good weapons, mind, but outliers.

                                The way the ladder's location is written there is just so confusing I have been looking for it for almost 30 minutes before deciding to just watch a video on it. It's not on the West side at all, it's just straight south on top of a small cliff.

                                  I just tested this and the weapon art scales very highly with Int, and hardly at all with Str.

                                  Using Alexander's shard with 38 int I hit the albinaurics for 1118.
                                  Boosting my Int by 10 increased the damage by 64.

                                    did they patch the drop from Yelough Anix Tunnel? was farming there for ages, went to lake of rot and got it immediately. could just be insane odds.

                                      for some reason the stamina cost on its (1h+2h) R2 is only 9 and charged 18, while other greatswords like claymores is 25(2h 30) and charged 35 (2h 40)

                                      also it has some weird and insane motion values on its R2s - 1h its normal R2 is 120 while the charged has 175 (for comparison claymore 1h normal R2 is 125 and charged 160)
                                      the 2h version non charged 138 and charged 215?? (claymore is 130 and charged 170)

                                      tl;dr the 2h charged R2 has by far the highest motion value of 215 and costs only 18 stamina? while something like the claymore gets only 170 motion value and costs 40 stamina lol
                                      mind all other greatswords are close in line and this one is an extreme outlier in this regard for some reason

                                            I don't like this with the weapon art pulling enemies towards you. I much prefer the curved greatsword from the onyx lord in sealed tunnel boss room.

                                              Just got this as a drop from the Alabaster Lord at the bottom of the Yelough Anix Tunnel in the consecrated snowfield. Page doesn't list that as an item source.

                                                Unless you wanna create a personalized niche build this weapon is underwhelmingly mediocre.
                                                Technically you get it earlier than the Darkmoon Greatsword so there might be a use for a little while but if you go Strength Intelligence it's the very Darkmoon Greatsword to go to

                                                  TBH I like the design of weapon but why use it when there are literally several better options at the point where you can get, not to mention it's AoW is just the gravity pull spell. Would have been better if it was also a random drop from one of the lords you can find out and about.

                                                    Would be a cool weapon if it didn't have an arbitrary 18 INT requirement while having terrible INT scaling

                                                      The charged R2 on this weapon deals the seconds most poise damage of any such attack in the game, only bested my the Great Club. Yes, this sword's charged R2 deals more poise damage than colossal swords, great hammers and colossal weapons (except Great Club).

                                                        That weapon has 2 weird thing going for it, first it has higher poise damage on its uncharged heavy attack compared to other greatsword (1H: 13.75 vs 11; 2H:13.75 vs 12.1), secondly it uncharged 2 handed heavy attack True Combo into 1 light attack unlike any other greatsword in PVP for some reason, you can use the gravity ashe of war and follow with that combo which is pretty cool, the ashe being cancellable with roll and backstrp allow you to do some cool mindgame, its a pretty cool weapon, more than people give it credit for.

                                                            Most of the gravity based weapons have such low magic damage and scaling that it would be better for them to have no magic damage and just scale physical with int. As it is, there is very little reason to use these with anything more that base int requirement except the skills, but at that point it seems better to just put gravitas on a regular weapon

                                                            • Anonymous

                                                              Surprisingly low damage on an Str Int build. Cold Iron GS has more AR, a bit longer reach, with a customizable AOW. Unless Alabaster Lord's Pull deals more damage than Gravitas, I see no particular reason to pick this over Iron GS.

                                                                It's like the perfect side arm for my STR/INT Gargoyle's Twinblade build, but it just looks dumb as hell.

Alabaster Lord's Pull does about 5 times more damage but is slower, has no hyper armour and doesn't seem to stagger enemies as easily as Gravitas. Not sure if it rivals the Starscourge GS damage when it's upgraded but the lack of hyper armour is pretty disappointing.

                                                                  • Anonymous

I have 47 poise, went to use the normal gravitas on the ore blade and all the sudden I'm able to tank the ant bites and silver tear lance attacks. Am I missing something or is gravitas just better for trading compared to the slower yet more powerful gravitas attacks? You'd think that there would be poise on the ash of war that has a semi long wind up similar to its faster version, but there's seemingly nothing. :(

I know thats not always the CASE but idk. When I see a weapon that looks light or I KNOW is lighter than what it is, make a heavy thunk in the ground, feels bad as ****.

                                                                                  Or maybe they can just give greatswords less amateurish swings. Something. idk.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    So, this Ash of War is literally just slightly better Gravitas? I'm beginning to believe FromSoft got halfway through designing these special weapons and just said "**** it, make their ashes like normal ones".

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      Despite the WA casting time being longer, costing more, and the name being different the only real difference is about it is seeming to have a radius bigger if you had +1 somber upgrade or a +3 smithing upgrade. As a base I used a +0 weapon and a +6 weapon to check radii. I compared this GS at +5 with a +6 Meteoric Ore Blade, a +15 Brick Hammer with Gravitas, and a +5 Starscourge GSs. Radius on the hammer and Ore Blade were identical as they should be since +15 and +6 are comparable in ratio 15/25 and 6/10. The radius on the GS was only slightly larger but the casting time was significantly longer. By comparison the casting time on the Starscourge GSs has a shorter casting time and a follow up attack. Maybe, just maybe, the radius scales as you upgrade and isn't just a flat boost, but the difference is so minor between the weapons it was barely noticeable. Honestly just use two Meteoric Ore Blades and you'll have some more success dragging people in for aggression and roll catching and the only reason I say that is because no other katana scales with Str and Int.

This platform is closest to that nearby dragonkin soldier boss at rot lake, just west of it in the middle. You can raise other platform to rise on it using other pressure plate near gate just south from that one.

You'll notice it slopes down. There's a ladder at the top of the hill to try the fight again.

                                                                                                • I got the sword from an enemy later in the game and the dude didn't spawn in the elevator above. Not sure if this is a bug or he just doesn't spawn if you already have the sword.

Indeed, it has a larger aoe effect and the damage is seemingly higher...but it was twice the startup and no hyper armor during any of it (regular gravitas has hyper armor). Which makes this sword inferior outside of looks to just a bastard sword with Gravitas.

Oh well... then again, INT builds can have the Darkmoon Greatsword, so I guess it's okay.

It looks like it was pressed already or not active yet. Looks like something else must be done to activate it

                                                                                                            • Anonymous

Walk south from where the platform used to be until you hit the wall (very close). Walk east along the wall until you reach a ramp. There is a ladder at the top of the ramp that brings you back up to the platform. GL.
