      This weapon is so addicting. I slept on it my first two playthroughs because it didn't fit my build and for my third save (in anticipation for the DLC) is my blood dex character build so this weapon is perfect and seriously fun. Just gonna ride this into SotE.

          Dual wielding this and frost twinblade currently. The jump attack is absolutely broken. Frost and bleed procs every couple seconds. It’s so broken that I think I’m going to change up my build because it’s actually a little boring.

            First playtrough here, mix ARC/FAI with DGS and Crucible set. I Used Reduvia until lvl 120, then got tired and used Bloody Helix, which I found ... meh. Then I tried this and this... is an absolute banger, powerful, fun and fills nicely with a dragon communion build + has a nice combo with charger Aspect of Crucible : Horn.

                                Large weapon with deceptively short reach
                                Has less bleed than bleed twinblades
                                Has less AR than fire twinblades
                                Very situational AoW
                                Falls off against bosses like mohg who are 80% fireproof


                                Pros

                                Stylish AoW
                                Stylish weapon
                                Great stagger and poise break potential (cough cough malenia)
                                Inflicts a lot of bleed with the AoW (Many hits)
                                Fast twinblade moveset
                                Low weight
                                Good for chaining hits (milly's prosthesis, Rotten insignia etc)
                                Good for flame grant me strength
                                AR can easily go above 1500 if you land many hits and bleed enemies and have your buffs active.

                                Total rating: 9/10 weapon, 10/10 twinblade

                                    Dex arcane build with Millicents prosthesis, rotten sword insignia and lord of bloods exultation (swap for shard of Alexander if you can't bleed a boss), and it NEEDS a nerf, this thing hits as hard as a godslayer greatsword and as fast as a Katana, Jesus christ someone nerf this monster.

                                      A burning tree should be left well alone. Oh I know very well how the elden ring beckons so sweetly. Only an honest death can cure you now. Liberate you from your ambitions.

Rotten winged sword insignia, Millicent's prosthesis, shard of alexander, thorny cracked tear, flame-shrouded cracked tear, white mask, lord of blood's exultation, blue dancer talisman, golden vow, and flame grant me strength, this is how we solo malenia, boys!

                                          Weapon bleeds suck, the ash of war moveset is two big which means you can't use safely and since the blees is so low it's better to use a Katana and land some heavy attacks and get the stun instead of using this weapon art... which is a shame on regular enemies is amazing but for bosses? This is a big nop.

                                            Not great. Low blood build up, low and split damage, locked into ridiculous ash of war. Blood twinblade outclasses it.

                                              I don't get what the hype for this weapon is about. I can't even bleed low level bosses, and the damage is barely even considerable at +9. To actually use this weapon, you have to have a setup of physick tears, buffs, consumables, and talismans to even do anything with it.

                                                  It's kind of crazy how much damage you can get out of this with the Rotten Sword Insignia + Millicient's Prosthesis + Lord of Blood's Exaltation. A charged R2 has rapid hits that build up the stacking damage buff from the two aforementioned talismans, the multihits build up bleed to proc the Lord of Blood's Exaltation, and you might even stagger the foe with the stance damage.

                                                    Most weapons do not have a combination of damage, stagger, speed, and status buildup. That does not apply to this weapon.

I don't even know what to say it's so powerfully good, Winged Sword Insignia, Green Turtle Talisman and any other one depending on the situation. It's a dex/arc build, along with mimic tear it simply melts everything it faces lol

                                                                  Pretty frusrating to use the map link to try locate an item but its impossible because every single item location and place of discovery is covering the map with an a million obnoxious symbols hiding the one item I am trying to locate. Kinda makes it worthless if I have to go somewhere else to find the right image showing the location. Otherwise I almost always come to fextra to expand my knowledge in games, but the map feature desperately needs to be fixed.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    Best weapon in the game, bar none. The raw stats are misleading as the moveset is incredibly versatile, does TONS of stagger, hits fast as lightning, rips through Malenia, and even splitting damage between fire, bleed, and physical, it still tears down health bars.

                                                                    • The base damage is very low and it doesnt have good scaling either. A +10 poleblade only has 352 base damage, a +25 flame art twinned knight swords has 468 base damage. Thats 25% less base damage at the same upgrade levels and the trade off is that you get a bit of innate bleed on it. The problem is, enemies weak to fire are usually immune to bleed (tree spirits and avatars) or not worth trying to bleed because they are regular mobs with relatively low health (cleanrot knights and kindred of rot).

                                                                      The scaling on this weapon is also problematic. The arcane scaling is only rank D and is honestly quite bad. Dex scales better but doesnt affect the fire damage. The end result is lackluster stat scaling. For comparison, Reduvia has C dex scaling and B arcane scaling so it will scale better. The innate bleed doesnt scale particularly well either. Even with 60 arcane, it only scales to 81 bleed which is honestly not that impressive.

                                                                      Another problem is that you cant take advantage of flaming strike or lightning's strike buffs, which add a flat 90 damage. This is a huge damage difference, especially at lower upgrade levels. A regular twinblade with either flaming or lightning strike will shred regular mobs much faster than the poleblade due to having way higher raw damage, and when stacking elemental damage bonuses from talismans and other sources, kill stuff much faster than the poleblade can.

                                                                      This weapon feels more like a jack of all trades, but fire and bleed just doesnt mix well together given that you usually want to focus on one or the other, not both. I think it would be a lot better if dex affected the fire damage as well, then perhaps the lower base damage would not be so bad and it probably should also get B dex scaling and C arcane scaling (or vice-versa). You are usually better off running either flaming or lightning strike, and swapping to blood affinity for the occasional high hp boss like fire giant.

                                                                      The one potential saving grace is the unique skill. On paper, it does absolutely ridiculous poise damage, 6 hits for a total of 42.5 poise damage and the follow up deals 30 poise damage. For comparison, lion's claw with a colossal hammer only deals 45 poise damage. But so far in my testing, it does not appear to deal that much poise damage, it cannot stagger crucible knights for example so they will just kill you during the lengthy animation. Which is another problem, the lengthy animation gets you killed against fast bosses. I need to do more testing on this however. Damage wise and status build up wise, the skill isnt particularly impressive, spinning slash will outdamage this skill and is significantly faster.

                                                                      • Anonymous

Here are the simple steps to get this fast. 1)Go beat up Bloody Finger Nerijus when he invades you near the Murkwater Catacombs. 2)Kill Bloody Finger Hunter Yura just ahead of where the Murkwater Catacombs are. 3)Get both pieces of the Dectus Medallion and go up to Altus Plateau. 4)Run to Second Church of Marika and beat up Eleonora, Violet Bloody Finger. Congrats you now have Eleonora's Poleblade. You don't need to progress far into Yura's questline to get this. You just need Yura to die to trigger Eleonora's invasion at the Second Church of Marika.

It has way more range tan the other twinblades and the r2 is a fkin blender. The ash of war not only has a ton of hyper armor, but it's also an almost guaranteed 6 hit combo + a retreating follow-up wich greatly reduces the risk of using it.

Twinblades are really fun to use, and to boot even for bosses that are resistant (or immune) to bleed, there's always the fire damage on top (helpful for a certain end game boss or two). The aow won't usually hit people in pvp but if you manage to get them it can hit pretty hard, and in pve it's pretty great (and style points). Usually I try not to re-use somberstone weapons but I am very tempted to find an excuse to use this again in another playthrough

So since this weapon has multiple hits, has an insane ash of war, bleed build up and fire damage, it basically makes my short comings less punishing.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                              But it is the worst for PvP because the start of the skill makes you jump backwards and then go forward allowing other players to avoid it by walking backwards!!!

No. Does it get a ridiculous weapon art that staggers enemies and bosses extremely easily on top of having bleed? Yes. Scaling mainly to arcane makes using the dragon communion seal alongside it very easy too, overall one of the more versatile twinblades that's strong in more than just status build up alone.

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

And i also like the quest to get this

                                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                                      Alright here's how to get this weapon (and Nagikiba) at base level without progressing any questlines other than Yura's. Start game, grab Torrent. Talk to Yura, then run straight down to the Nerijus invasion and kill him (if you're struggling it's vital to run towards Yura so he'll help you). Continue straight ahead and talk to Yura again. Jump up the spiritspring and go to the Third Church of Marika grace. Two things to do from here. First, go to Fort Haight and get the dectus mdeallion half from there. Second take the teleporter to Dragon Barrow. Go down the hill and find the lower bridge on the left side. Head across past Lenne's rise, take the spiritspring. Down to the back of the minor erdtree take the second spiritspring and head to Fort Faroth. Straight in up the first ladder grab the other half of the medallion. Now go back to the Gatefront and run around the back of Stormveil and into Liurnia. Go straight for the glintstone key, enter the academy and kill the Ravenmount assassin (I put enough points to use Reduvia and the bleed makes this fight easy, just let Yura tank, use the weapon art and a few r1s). Talk to Yura again then go back to the closest blue symbol and teleport to the other gate. Run straight to the lift and head up. IMPORTANT: DO NOT REST AT ANY GRACES IN ALTUS IF YOU DON'T WANT TO SKIP QUESTLINES! I can confirm that if you don't rest at any graces then Rya will remain in Liurnia, Blaidd with stay in the Mistwood and brother Corhyn won't leave the hold which I assume means none of their quests have progressed. Resting at a grace in Volcano Manor is fine though. It's not worth trying to fight Eleonora, she will one shot you instantly with dragonroar or dragonflame. This makes trying to knock her off the edge difficult too. Instead, (I recommend looking before fighting her, even on another character already in Altus) there's a spot on the cliffs behind the church where you can drop to halfway down. Look for the big rock on the cliff's edge, it's just to the right of that. You want to drop onto that ledge and then stand where it's thinnest, to minimize the chance that she will land safely. I unequipped all my gear too. Once you're ready go into the church, pay your respects to Yura by looting his corpse. Wait just outside for Eleonora to spawn (wait until she actually appears). Book it for the cliff, drop down carefully and just wait. She'll spam dragon spells for a bit but you should be safe. I got it first time, but everyone's luck is different. Eventually she'll jump down and die. Tada! Enjoy your poleblade at base level and intact questlines.

The arcane scales both phsical and fire damage on the weapon while the dex only increases the physical damage. Despite the lower arcane acaling you get more damage overall from arcane. On top of that you also increase the bleed buildup as well.

The weapon art combo brutalizes them and frequently also stuns them when most of it lands, giving you an additional riposte opportunity if they're even still alive at that point.
