      I can confirm makes the game more enjoyable and works against malenia. Paired with long envoy great horn and still have incantations is fun.

        50/50/50 STR/DEX/FAI has carried me from ng+1->ng+5

        I’m starting ng+6 tomorrow and fully expect similar results—especially as I’ll be leveling faith to 80 over this playthrough

        • Anonymous

          This is the item if you don't want to have insane blood pressure playing the rest of the game.

          Never nerf it. Please.

          • If you intend on relying primarily on the skill, level strength, and dex to meet the requirements, then faith up to 80. If you want to use it one-handed, go for minimum requirements in faith and str, then level dex until you see diminishing returns. For two-handed, just swamp dex and str.
            I STRONGLY recommend the faith route. That skill is just bonkers and you could also pair it with Erdtree seal for incantations.

              Honestly one of the best weapons in the game. I used my first playthrough and it carried me all through the haligtree. Such a great weapon, fun to powerstance with another greatsword

                This weapon is absurdly OP. I have used it and loved using it. But everyone denying it needs a nerf needs a reality check. This option is SO OP for PVE faith build that other options might as well not even exist. It's hard as a player to choose anything else. But on some level, I *want* to be able to choose something else. Tired of trying other faith weapons and feeling burdened by the knowledge that I have made an objectively worse choice. I guess the other open would be to buff some of the awful faith weapons in the game. but, we're being honest; this would still need a nerf. And it would make me sad. But I am a human with very little self control, and I want to enjoy a different weapon in PVE

                Also to idiots who will dunk on any weapon that has like. story telling or personality built into its design as being "ugly": best of luck picking between shades of beige nest time you are repainting any room.

                  this is the weapon i used on my first playthrough, after that on NG+ i tried using other weapons. and at that point i realized that Elden ring is actually a hard game.

                    I started a new PvE character, and I wanted to try a new play style. I did Dex / Faith, and was determined to use weapons I don't normally use, and close-quarters spells I don't normally play with.
                    In general, just trying to keep things interesting and add some difficulty for myself.
                    It actually meant that there were some bosses I couldn't beat the first time I encountered them, and I had to put a skull on the map so I could come back later.
                    And then....
                    And then I got the blasphemous blade.
                    And damnit, I folded like a tea towel.
                    I went back to each boss and my mimic and I cheesed those bastards with the blade skill.
                    I'm weak. So, so weak.

                            The best pve weapon hands down when paired with rykyards great rune, takers cameo and the serpent gods curved sword. I'm genuinely amazed a lifesteal build in a fromsoft game works this well. Put some regen on and it's bye bye estus.

                              It feels OP everywere except Magma Wyrms and Fire Giant. At Malenia it feels just well blanced. There are a theoretical chance to stunlock her until death, but in practice, it's hard to do so.

                                The healing on kill effect still works if you carry the sword on your back. You can two hand another weapon or use spells and you will still heal yourself if you kill an enemy as long as you carry the sword is on your back. Even if you don't have the required stats to wield it. Simply carrying it on the back is enough. This trick can safe lot of healing flasks.

                                  PvP review: the damage is really bad against meta dex or str builds since they pack fire resistance on vigor along with elemental resistant armor. Not like a sweat builds just gonna let you cast FGMS either. Erdsteel dagger with sacred blade will actually do more dmg on r1s. Invasions are a different story and the L2 vigor checks along with hyper armor r1s. No one is getting hit by this L2 in a duel though, even with prediction free aims. Even with 60% defense boost from hyper armor, I will lose trades against lightning katana with lightning blade buff…

                                    Yall i feel like this weapon is to weak in its current state and that it doesn't have enough effects, they should make it heal your entire health bar every time you swing and also add blood build up and the blood flame effect to its basic attacks and ash of war. If they buff it like this it still might be a bit underpowered but it will defiantly help it compared to how bad it is now, maybe make the ash only cost 3 fp to cost to.

                                      After using Marais Greatsword, Mohg's Greatspear, dual beastman's blades(same stats, str+arc build)
                                      Blasphemous seemed trivial, boring and underpowered, especially for boss fights.
                                      Upgraded it to +10, respec, one evening of full dissapointment, respec, back to Arc Str build.

                                        Really is blasphemous considering how powerful it is against basically all the demi gods but the serpent king.

                                          Even without the Alexander Shard and Flame grant me strength it's got arguably the best AOW in the entire game. A fitting reward for such an awesome optional boss. This weapon should never be nerfed.

                                            Many of BB users I've seen have powerstanced it with Sword of Milos, and oh God it's so cringe (thank you Fextra). Sword of Milos is a dex weapon (even though it has C in both str and dex at +10 it still benefits primarily from dexterity) and BB is faith/quality, but since BB users know only how to abuse L2 and Taker's Flames scales exclusively with faith, str/dex investment doesn't matter here. Just like the bleed buildup on Milos', because 1) there is no way you will ever proc it on enemies since status builup was nerfed on paired weapons, and 2) damage from bleed is non-existent when compared to Taker's Flames or jumping L1. You kill anything so fast it just doesn't matter. And mana recovey? You really think that 5 FP restoration is something mandatory? The only thing worth noting is a defense debuff, but then you can use Milos' as an off-hand tool with any other weapon, just make sure you have 19 dex. Or use it as a main weapon on a distinct quality build, which is an incomparably better choice.

                                                    interestingly, despite the weapons corruption by the serpent, the blade is made of gold and appears to be quite ornate. he may have owned it before being devoured by the serpent, and intentionally corrupted it; a fitting example of why he is know as "the lord of blasphemy"

                                                      Dual wielding this sword with various fire and/or faith buffs is a fun build. Jump attacks with the Claw Talisman are good. The AoW is actually really useful too.

                                                      • I love this weapon with my Strength/Faith build. Even without the AoW the base damage this thing does is on par with some of my colossal swords!... I would LOVE to see it without all the creepy bloody remains stuck to it. Underneath it looks like a beautiful ornate golden blade.

For one, the weapon art is useless for anything airborne. Secondly, it's outranged by hard-hitting weapons like the Bolt of Gransax. Third, it's easy to avoid in PvP for anyone who is careful, so you cannot abuse it there either.

For comparison, Dark Moon Great Sword is 200/240 with DDB. It's more than Godslayer's Greatsword, which is an ultra greatsword and significantly slower. It even does more stamina damage!

I was a Patches build for ng to +3, but trying to use the blade as a crowd control weapon, the ash only bumped Rykard's children without any damage.
                                                                        I assume it's due to the blade protecting Rykard's children.

It's only on my second playthrough where I tried fighting her WITHOUT mimic tear and WITHOUT blasphemous blade that I realized what a cheat code this weapon is lol. XD

Taker's Flames hits for a consistent ~1,100 damage which is around half of everyone's HP bar at levels 301-713. The HP return for landing it is well worth letting them get distance thinking they're safe. Makes their heal a waste of time and heals myself in the process.

I get how it's the point for it to look like 30 infectious diseases at once came to life, but it's just not for me

So many top 10 weapons stuff say that it is number 1. I feel like weapons like star fist, ScS, WoA, Deaths Poker, Iron Ball, Gargoyals twinblade, Eleonoras Poleblade, Nagakiba, Greatsword, and GSGS are a bit better. (I am not counting staffs and seals as weapons and I know if I say RoB Ima get disliked, so IN PVE, ROB IS ALSO THERE. NOT FOR PVP IT IS KINDA BAD IN PVP NOW.)
