Alabaster Lord's Sword is a Greatsword in Elden Ring. The Alabaster Lord's Sword scales primarily with Strength, Dexterity and Intelligence. It is a good Weapon for casters. 

 

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.

      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.

      • Anonymous

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

        • Anonymous

          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).

          • Anonymous

            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.

              If you die after this drops (due to scarlet rot in my case) the item disappears and does not appear to respawn or remain. I have essentially lost my ability to get this sword on this play through.

                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.

                  • Anonymous

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

                    • Anonymous

                      I compared this with a Lordsworn's Cold Greatsword with Gravitas, both +0. 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.

                        Can someone help me? i killed the alabaster, but couldn't heal in time to get the sword. Went back there and there was no lord or sword. It went somewhere else or o lost it for good?

                          I tried comparing the three gravitas based weapon arts, and used Meteoric Ore Blade, Onyx Lord's Greatsword, and Alabaster, and after using the Onyx and the Alabaster for about a couple of minutes trying to trade with the ants and silver tears in Nokstella, they just have no poise in their ashes of war. 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. :(

                            Ground based skills and items for sure dont work right on that platform where you fight the Alabaster Lord for the sword. I put a healing stone down fell right through the floor, Taker's Flames from Rykard's sword only go like 5 feet and even the Albaster Lords Gravity Pull skill wasnt even working past like 5ft against me lol.

                              The 1.04 patch made the WA so much better. It’s speed was significantly increased and you get the ability to roll cancel it.

                                This greatsword's 1hR1 seems to do 13.75 poise damage on PVE compared to the usual 11 poise damage of Greatswords.

                                  on a strength/int build this thing is pretty cool. the gravitas weapon art has unusual timing and rather good reach, i've finished off many an invader with it.

                                    somethings up with this weapons 2h R2s, they seem to do way more poise damage and also higher damage overall...

                                      holding this thing, really looks like it could've just been a longsword.
                                      Not really sure if I'm liking From's reliance on making weapons just default be greatswords or colossals cause they have a weapon art. 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.

                                        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".

                                          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.

                                                Somber Smithing Stone [9] on nearby corpse in same platform. 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.

                                                  If you dropped during your fight (and died) -- after you run back out and are facing the raised platform -- hug the right wall. You'll notice it slopes down. There's a ladder at the top of the hill to try the fight again.

                                                    if you die before picking up the sword after killing the ennemy, you loose the sword because the ennemy don't respawn.

                                                    • 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.

                                                        Weapon skill is supposed to be a stronger variant of Gravitas. 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.

                                                            Based on the upgrade chart shown on this page, this weapon looks more to be a STR weapon with a touch of magic damage, and not an INT based weapon. Oh well... then again, INT builds can have the Darkmoon Greatsword, so I guess it's okay.

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.
