Devourer's Scepter is a Great Hammer (Warhammer) in Elden Ring. The Devourer's Scepter scales primarily with Strength, Dexterity and Faith. It is a good Weapon for high strength players who can hold this weapon's weight. The weight is worth the ability to crush enemy armor, sometimes along with the enemy itself.  

 

Scepter in the shape of a serpent devouring the world. This
weapon will one day become the very symbol of the Lord of 
Blasphemy.
One of the legendary armaments.

A vision of the future briefly seen by Rykard in his final moments
before being devoured by the great serpent.

      wish the skill on this weapon followed through with casting even if you get smacked mid-animation, similar to that axe/spell where you summon 3 skeletons to attack for you lol. would be much more tempting to use

      • Anonymous

        Really wish this had better scaling (B/B/B or B/B/C) and/or a little higher base damage - I think the Weapon Art being situational is fine (could use hyper armor though). As is, the damage and scaling are lackluster compared to other Great Hammers (notably the CVC, which is also Strike/Fire), which is a shame as this is a LEGENDARY weapon. To avoid breaking the game early (as is you can get this by killing Bernahl at the shack), just make it only droppable by Bernahl as an invader.

          I got killed right after I killed Bernahl. I’m not sure if I got the sceptre or not but regardless he’s dead. Any ideas on where to go to get the drop or do I require a new Playthrough?

            An interesting weapon.

            Can hit pretty hard. With 99 in Str + Dex + Fth it has AR of 983 1h and 1015 2h.

            WA with these stats basic pleb Soldiers near Gatefront grace for 472. It does however, deal Fire damage so you can boost that up with Shard of Alexander and Flame Scorpion to hit for 608.

            If you want max damage, with 99 in all 3 stats, Flame, Grant Me Strength, Golden Vow, Shard of Alexander, Flame Scorpion and Flame Tear the WA was hitting those pleb soldiers for 1k damage.

            Really, the main issue with the WA is how easily it's interrupted. Unless you're full potato you'll be stopped by a sneeze. The only thing going for it is the duck towards the end of the animation can dodge horizontal attacks. Otherwise it's a decent tool for controlling an area and getting some health back (Especially against packs of Rats and Dogs as fire damage is especially strong against them... Just packs of those are also the most likely thing to spam you with 10 billion attacks per second to interrupt the cast)

              Elden Ring is heavily based on ancient alchemy. This weapon resembles the Caduceus, the staff wreathed by snakes that was a signature item of the Greek god Hermes. Hermes was the patron god of alchemy; alchemy's pursuit of the panacea, the legendary medicine that could cure any disease, is why the Caduceus is often depicted in hospitals. The grim irony of this weapon is that Rykard's vision of a "cure" for the world was to feed it to the serpent.

                Just started a new character (hero) and killed bernahl for this at storm shack, Now for Pve the weapon art does not do alot do damage, but buffed with Flame grant me strength and flask you can do decent damage and it also staggers any non large enemy. The hammer is great at breaking stance, can't wait to run through Ng+ to get two of these. Also the range of this weapon is great. The skill is very satisfying if used in a large group.

                  this weapon is really fun to use, my recommendation is to have some decent poise, and not rely on the weapon art for damage, but more or less have it as an AOE finisher in duels, combining it with other means of creating spacing. people say the damage is underwhelming, but it comes out pretty quickly, and does good poise damage, did i mention it's strike damage? yeah it isn't mohg's spear, but bonus, it isn't mohg's spear, so people don't run away from you as soon as you pull it out. sometimes a less popular weapon is just what you need to get an edge in a duel. i think this is a pretty fun weapon, if you're considering giving it a try, did i mention it looks really cool?

                  • ive got 80 in all three stats it scales with and its at +9 and the skill does a grand total of 370 damage to the generic godrick soldier in front of stornveil, really needs a buff on the skill

                      Disappointed this doesn't heal on kill like the blasphemous blade or serpent god's sword. Missed opportunity, makes it less appealing imo though it's still a powerhouse when you spec properly.

                        You can get this at the start of the game by killing the npc in the warmasters shack east of the stormhill shack

                          In game this is considered a colossal weapon not a greathammer. I'm new to souls games so I'm not sure if that is a significant difference in terms of movesets, but I just thought I would mention it.

                              Highly underrated. One of the longest Warhammers in the game and great for pyro builds, especially since the 1-handed moveset is fantastic for rollcatching. The Ash of War isn't great but is capable of catching people off guard if they get too close. I encourage any Strength/Faith builds to give it a chance!

                                Seems week sadly. At +9 with my stats str. 27 dex 20 abs faith 85 (had a great run active) AR 1h 643. 2h 677. Not that great compared to my sacred great stars +24 at 743 2h.
                                Ash of water comes out far too slow, seemly zero hyper armor so I get knocked out pretty easily.
                                Unfortunately it’s just not worth using at this moment. Only upside it seems to have more poise damage then the great stars.

                                  It got buffed with the recent patch, both damage AND its weapon art. NAAAOW WE CA' DEVOUR THE GODS...TOGETHAAAAAA.

                                    The heal is great statistically, but the weapon art is just to slow to reliably use it.

                                    And when I say slow I mean you could probably open your menu mid combat, do the glintstone crown glitch and get to full health more easily than attempting to get this off without being hit out of the animation. That said, perhaps poisebois could make good use of it as alt weapon, as they would be more able to withstand the punishment while using it.

                                      For some reason Bernahl went home during his invasion, and I was worried that I wouldn't get the weapon; but I came back later and he invaded again, so it's all good.

                                        This might be a good AOE option for dealing with AFK farmers if you don't have Mohgwyn's spear. I haven't been able to confirm yet whether or not the weapon art has enough vertical range to work for the First Step cliff, will continue testing. Horizontal range is great, devours farmers nicely.

                                          the two things nice about the weapon art: the heal is actually quite big and the aoe is pretty large. that said, you get no hyperarmor whatsoever, and it's slow asf. the damage is less than a normal light attack.

                                            At 40 STR / DEX / FAI this weapon is terrible, however…

                                            Against Malenia I tried +10 versions of Godslayers Greatsword, Grafted Greatsword, Malikeths BB, with no luck.

                                            This Snake Hammer Abomination outperformed all of them even at +9. It doesn’t do the most damage but it somehow manages to stagger Malenia consistently in 3-5 hits. Use the jump attack talisman and spam jump attacks with this thing, charge your R2 after the staggered critical hit for more free damage.

                                            This weapon is the only weapon I’ve beaten Malenia with, no cheese or summons I recommend giving it a shot. Throw a dagger into an open slot with bloodhounds step to switch to in order to avoid her spam flurry attack, welcome trades with this Devourers Sceptor since there’s a good chance of you can poise through Malenias hit you will stagger her, and the fight becomes doable.

                                              Yep, can confirm he does still invade if you killed Maliketh and even beat the Elden Beast. You just need to fully complete the Volcano Manor questline, kill Rykard, then talk to him in the Manor. He will tell you that you will fall to his blade, so go to Farum and walk towards the chest.

                                                So I'm in two minds with this weapon, on the one hand, splti damage is good for the most part but the weapon art damage isn't the hardest hitting; HOWEVER! they can't buff it because in PvP situations where there is 2-3 targets around you, the weapon art despite its lack of damage really shines and you'd be almost unkillable outside of being staggered.

                                                        I may be hated for saying this but I think the dex scaling for this weapon is too high for what it does. I think it should be lowered between the 13-16ish range.

                                                          Is it possible to do all the volcano manor quests and still have him invade me at Farum Azula? (provided I just choose not to kill rykard till later)

                                                            You can get this weapon along with his set and bell (not sure about the claw as i didn't get it) from killing him in the Warmaster's shack in Limgrave, so if you REALLY want to get this weapon, kill him there while he's weak.

                                                            but it's also understandable if you want to kill him in Farum at his highest level, though even as a sorcerer, it was NOT a fun fight......

                                                              As other said, don't do volcano mnnor if you're planing to go 100% achievement in one run since this thing is needed to do that. It's deceptive, cause the volcano manor feels like you should do it pretty early yet punishes you by breaking a quest line and missing some gear if you complete the manor before the other stuff to the east and north east.

                                                                I killed Rykard. Bernahl does not show up at the Volcano Manor anymore, nor does he invade me in Farum Azula. Reloaded the game a few times and went to area on the lower end of the walkway of the Beside the Great Bridge site of grace just to be sure, nothing.

                                                                Solution is to just don't kill Rykard I guess, or NG+.

I killed Bernahl cause he attacked me at night time and so I'm a little upset cause I wont get the extra two missions at volcano manor... oh well his armor has carried me through the game thus far. And I think it has better stats than the missions he gives armor(s).

In Crumbling Farum Azula, Recusant Bernahl invader closest to the 'Beside the Great Bridge' site of grace. There is a sloped path going up that leads to the boss of that area, if you turn around & go to the opposite side there's an ultimately linear dead end path with his invasion and some beastmen guarding the Old Lord's Talisman in a chest.

Its not that powerful on each mob and its slow casting, but the range on it is pretty big. The weak and strong attacks are pretty damaging and have the standard great hammer moveset.
