Cinquedea is a Dagger in Elden Ring. The Cinquedea scales primarily with Strength 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. The Cinquedea has extremely high base damage for a dagger while also having good Strength scaling. Overall, it's a surprisingly good Weapon choice for pure Strength builds and Strength / Faith hybrid builds.

 

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. 
  • Sell Value:  er runes 13 500
  • An R1 or even R2 can come out so fast after a bestial sling, it's insane. Great for bursting down the end of a health bar or catching someone who's going to delay their roll expecting another sling.
  • A follow-up attack after using Quickstep is executed faster than for normal rolling, allowing you to attempt a counter with more time if your enemy attacks slower than you.

      Is it just me or could the description be referencing Bloodborne?
      "The design celebrates a beast's five fingers, symbolic of the intelligence once granted upon their kind."
      Like, we have the Two Fingers and the Three Fingers but could Five Fingers have been what created the Scourge of Beasts in Bloodborne?

        To get the 10% beast buff, do you have to have the weapon in your right hand or just in a random slot? I was thinking of just using this dagger as a talisman and getting a strength based weapon like the brick hammer. Thoughts?

          Figuring out the jump and run stuff is most of the fun for me. Just needed to get a start. I tried it before cause I felt like I saw something at the sacred tower you can teleport to nearby with my binoculars. Just couldn't figure out where to start

            I'm Italian, "Cinquedea" does not literally translate to "Five fingers" but to "Five godness" instead (yes, with that mismatch on the plural form, saying "godness" instead of "godnesses")

              Honestly the worst thing about this dagger is that it's probably the dagger that benefits most from two-handing, but doesn't have a long enough hilt to look good while two-handing

              • Anonymous

                Dude, I don't understand the people complaining about daggers in this game. This thing has insane dps, while being able to attack so fast that you can weave hits inbetween enemy combos. Additionally it buffs bestial incantations, which will more than cover you in situations where the dagger range is lacking. Daggers are great tools, you just need to supplement the areas it's weak in, like any good build should be doing anyway.

                  This is the weapon for you if you put a lot of points into strength but you also want to wield a dagger that doesn't apply status effects, can't be buffed or infused, and won't do extra critical damage.

                    Now it would have been great if this weapon was also referenced in either Caelid, Greyoll's Dragonbarrow or Bestial Sanctum pages and not just only in the Weapons page as it's extremely well hidden
                    A bit more attention given to consistency on this wiki would be welcomed

                      One of the most underrated weapons in the game.
                      Very easy to find early on if you kill the Tibia Mariner and have D open the waygate to the Bestial Sanctum.
                      It's mostly STR scaling, so actually good for two-handing, and does tremendous DPS if you can hit reliably.
                      Good for aggressive play styles.

                        I feel kinda sad it doesn't resemble a real life cinquedea more, but I like how they managed to twist the original to fit with the beastmen culture.

                          Starting from the Beast Sanctum Site of Grace head the front door and turn right. Jump the railing and head west past the two birds and look down over the cliff. You’ll see a series of roots above a stone dome roof, drop down to the large root. If you’re not fond of or confident in Torrents controls you can dismount to drop down to the next root (I found this reduced my odds of slipping off) and then drop down to the roof.

                          From this level face the pillars and jump to the top level. Look down the back of the sanctum and you’ll see more slight alcoves and ledges. You will be zigzagging between these outer pillars and the wall of the sanctum down two more levels. After the first level (the one beneath the level with the roots) be sure to move either to the right or left side of the pillars so that you can jump onto the ledge on the side as the under arch will block you from landing safely directly beneath.

                          Once you’ve descended three levels (roots, pillar climb, pillar climb where you need to make sure to use the side of the pillar) the bottom level will have the Cinquedea beneath a crumbled beastman corpse. The Dragoncrest shield talisman will be right around the corner. Fair warning you may have to reload if you don’t kill the bats on the way down as you can become trapped by aground and unable to open your map.

                            Wow correct me if I'm wrong but I haven't seen a STR based dagger without infusions since the ones those black assassins in DS2 had. Pretty cool.

                              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 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.

It doesn't help that the dagger shows off five literal fingers running down its blade.

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.

You can have this as a packup weapon to finish off low health opponents while you use a typical strength weapon as primary.

                                                                                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).

                                                                                • Anonymous

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

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          • Anonymous

Seriously though, what is the harm here in allowing that? Do they think this thing will be too OP? Lol.

It's duplicate is found in Farum Azula instead, please update with its proper location. That's how you're supposed to get it I'm guessing given its item description directly indicates its from Farum Azula.

The items are still down here and haven't been moved elsewhere, so people are correct in saying it's bugged to get this and the Dragoncrest +0 talisman in patch 1.03 and 1.04.

Idk why they decided to put an invisible death field, maybe you shouldn't be able to get there just yet.
