Cinquedea is a Dagger in Elden Ring. The Cinquedea scales primarily with Strength and Dexterity and is a good Weapon for short range melee combat. This dagger is paired with the Quickstep skill to help gain an advantage in position and avoid damage, granting an opening to follow up with a combo of attacks. This dagger also has the unique ability to boost the damage of Bestial Incantations when held.

 

Short sword given to high ranking clergymen of Farum Azula.
Raises potency of bestial incantations.

The design celebrates a beast's five fingers, symbolic of the intelligence once granted upon their kind.

 

Where to Find Cinquedea in Elden Ring

The Cinquedea weapon can be found at the following location:

  • Location: Cinquedea can be found at the bottom of the exterior structure of the Bestial Sanctum, near a broken rat corpse statue. [Map Link]
  • To reach this spot, go to the west cliff outside the sanctum and travel down a series of roots and platforms. Jump down to the outlying branch and continue downward using the ledges and pillars. You can use Rainbow Stones to figure out where to fall from next.

Elden Ring Cinquedea Notes & Tips

  • Weapon Skill: Quickstep
  • Cinquedea can be upgraded by using Somber Smithing Stones.
  • This weapon cannot be infused with Ashes of War.
  • Can't be enchanted with Magic nor boosted with Consumables.
  • Buffs damage of Bestial Incantations by 10%, stacking multiplicatively with Clawmark Seal.
  • A Cinquedea is a short Italian sword whose name literally translates to "five fingers," originally referencing the width of the blade.

      the name is literally five fingers. the clergymen and other beastmen probably served the 5 fingers, and then the frenzied flame split from the greater will, somehow taking 3 of placidbois heads and the greater boi sent the elderly beast down, which probably jacked a good chunk of the larger elden ring you see depicted in farum. hell, it could broken the rune of time in doing so, which might be why farum is ****ed up.

        There goes my build... Powerstancing with daggers doesn't out damage a 1handed dagger. Like WTF... Great for applying frostbite I guess but that's it. Daggers are at the bottom tier in the game.

              A nice little bonus tool for those trying to do pure strength with some utility beast incantations. I like doing 15 faith, the requirement for the highest beast incantation, Gurranq's Beast Claw. You get 212 incant scaling at 80 strength 15 faith at +25, and with the 10% boost from this dagger the incant scaling for beast incantations is about 233. Not bad for low faith investment.

                So would using this off hand, Roar Medallion and Highland Axe with Beast's Roar ash all combo? Oh, or can Clawmark Seal do same thing in off hand? I'm still learning here.

                  Cinquedea doesn't mean five fingers in italian. "cinque" is five yes but "Dea" means like godess. Instead "Dita" means fingers. so that could be what they were referencing to "CinqueDita".

                    If you're having trouble getting down, you have to land on pretty much every single ledge to avoid the kill barrier. I dropped down a distance I didn't think would kill me, but it did, and I had the cat talisman to prevent fall damage. On the second try, I dropped from the column to a little ledge on the building itself, and then dropped down from that and made it without damage. Seems like it's kinda finicky with fall damage for whatever reason, but yeah if you're having trouble, land on every ledge possible.

                      I am begging fextra users to develop basic information processing skills, it has quickstep because the BEAST CLERGYMEN LITERALLY ****ING QUICKSTEP WHEN YOU FIGHT THEM

                        i used this weapon for a while because i found it with no guides and i think it was one of the coolest secret locations in the game. "Praise the Down! Down, O down!" if im being honest though... this weapon is just not practical to wield. the most glaring issue is the lack of critical damage, especially since you are locked in with quickstep, you would expect a backstab to do good damage. if you have to stats to utilize this weapon properly, you are better off with the heavy dagger or misercorde. also the passive is simply not worth factoring because as much as people spam bestial sling, it is not really worth investing 10% damage for a main hand weapon with low AR.

                          People are giving this thing hate, but quickstep on daggers is nutty in PvP. You can attack out of quickstep sooner than you can attack out of a roll, this means that against a lot of heavier weapons, if you react to their attack with quickstep, you can get in an attack before they can roll, which doesn't quite work with a normal dodge. I find that this thing heavily counters colossal swords, and is difficult for many people to deal with. Bloodhound step doesn't work so well with daggers for this purpose, it goes to far and is difficult to use and stay within reach of hitting the enemy, plus quickstep costs less.

                            Does the bestial incant buff apply just when equipped or do I actually need to have it out in my main or off hand?

                                if youre just getting this as a bestial incant booster, dont bother, the jellyfish shield has a 20% boost to everything and this only does 10%

                                • Some stats for 80 STR:

                                      I feel like this weapon might be tied to the unobtainable ending where you join the 2 fingers and 3 fingers into what looks like a hand, or maybe it was a beast who used this to cut the hand in twain beginning this mess of lords and demigods and fighting fingers. It doesn't help that the dagger shows off five literal fingers running down its blade.

                                        Looks fairly similar to how the gargoyle weapons look. Wonder if this is intentional, either way great weapon for a magic caveman build.

                                          What a disappointing weapon. It looks super cool but it has nothing going for it apart from making other things, the incantations, better. It should definitely have some kind of a unique Ash of War ( preferably throwing rocks) or a unique moveset, it feels lacking which is just weird when you consider the fact that it's used by a cool NPC/boss.

                                            The weapon art should be the thing maliketh does were he pulls out the floor and the rocks fly and then fall back down...

                                              Does great cleanup damage for a beastial incantation build.

                                              At 80 strength this thing has some honest to goodness fantastic dps. Golden vow + FGMS you can get 2000+ out of a chain of light attacks.

                                              Stone of Gurranq to chunk single targets or get in close with bestial sling/claw. I’d recommend playing with Radagon Seal as the cast increase is especially noticeable on beast incants

                                              • The end boss in Farum Azula uses this same weapon to unlock the seal on his hand and break the binding. Perhaps this weapon can be used somewhere else to unlock something...

                                                      Best base damage out of all the daggers. Cool unorthodox weapon for Strength and Bestial Incantation builds. You can have this as a packup weapon to finish off low health opponents while you use a typical strength weapon as primary.

                                                        Just want to put out here that the Cinquedea + Clawmark Seal combo IS hella viable and fun (imho). Like, C or B Tier stuff, but most importantly stylish and fun.

                                                        You can't count on stance-breaking things with just a dagger and (most) incantations, which is unintuitive for a STR build.

                                                        But, Bestial Sling flows well with dagger attacks, and most spells for that matter. Bestial Sling is a great bread and butter, with dagger combos ramping up the dps during punishes.

                                                        It's very engaging gameplay. Makes me feel brave, except when I'm throwing rocks repeatedly, because then I feel caveman (which is good too).

                                                          Unsure how this is supposed to be obtained? Got to the point where it gave a soft cotton, jumped across onto the pillar’s platform, then jumped again to an edge on the main structure - bc the actual bottom floor seemed like death. This spot looked safe enough, so I used the cotton and died. There are no other spots on the way down to alleviate the fall damage.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                              It seems that the latest patch put up a kill wall right on the first root you jump down to. It's an instant death trigger when you try to drop down to the second root, even if you try walking off.

                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                                    I think a recent patch broke the path down. I try to make my way down, but I keep dying in the exact same spot on the first root, I can't even jump off of it... I die as I approach the edge.

                                                                                                    • Anonymous

Not sure if it's the new patch that came out today or PC is just screwed over by this small detail

                                                                                                      • Anonymous

So +10% to damage

It is nice if you want to sling beast spells but really feels a bit underwhelming.

Went after it before the typo was corrected and was excited to run the fast casting Bestial incantations with the mobility of BHS, but not being able to utilize a featured weapon is a heart breaker.
