Where to find Fingerslayer Blade in Elden Ring

 

Elden Ring Fingerslayer Blade Use

Fingerslayer Blade is used to progress in Ranni's questline. This is the 'Hidden treasure of Nokron' she asks you to find. After giving this item to her, she gives you the Carian Inverted Statue as a reward.

 

Elden Ring Fingerslayer Blade Notes & Tips

  • The chest cannot be opened unless you have talked to Ranni and entered her service.
  • This item bears similarities to two weapons in Elden Ring:
    • It's shape is similar to that of the Black Knife, being that of a curved dagger. The cross guard of the Fingerslayer Blade lines up with two of the three spikes of the Black Knife, but it is missing the Black Knife's additional spike. As the Black Knife Assassins are scions of the eternal cities, one of which this weapon is a treasure of, the assumption can be made the Black Knife daggers were fashioned after this blade. The Black Knives were also used by the Assassins to kill a member of the Golden Lineage, and thus a vassal of the Greater Will, so this design choice might have been intentional by the Assassins as either a symbolic gesture, or the Black Knife actually inherited its demigod-slaying power from this item at least in part, somehow.
    • It shares its double helix blade with the Sacred Relic Sword, which, similarly to this item's description, was fashioned from a corpse. The description of the Sacred Relic Sword states it is considered to be an omen of the end of era and a beginning that might bring ruin or prosperity. Similarly, this item brought about the doom of the society inhabiting the eternal cities, as it caused the greater will to banish them underground, which made way for the Age of the Golden Order.

      Pretty sure the answer is no, and its just a big missed opportunity, but are we sure there is no special interaction with your own fingers or with the three fingers if you keep the finger slayer in yoyr inventory?

        I messed up Ranni’s quest. I got this blade but no Ranni to give it to in exchange for the inverted statue. Is there a workaround?

        • Anonymous

          After looking carefully at its design, I noticed that it kinda looks like an old, bent, crumbling version of the Sacred Relic Sword. I mean, it was made from a corpse of some unknown figure, and the Sacred Relic Sword was made from Radagon’s corpse, so there might be some kind of connection between the two since both were created from the corpses of supposedly powerful entities.

            If Ranni required this blade to kill her Two Fingers, what killed the various Two Fingers atop the Divine Towers?

            • Anonymous

              "...but is said to be able to harm the Greater Will and its vassals."
              So perhaps this might be what Ranni used to slay her Two Fingers underneath the Cathedral of Manus Celes.
              Also could this mean that Ranni's goal in the Age of Stars ending might be to go into space and slay the Greater Will itself?

                This is the counterpart of the sacred relic sword, if that sword has Radagon in the Inner Order gesture, this blade has a pose similar to the stakes of Marika.

                  Most likely created from the body of an Empyrean, like the Sacred Relic Sword. Are there any known links between the Godslayers/Dusk-Eyed Queen and the Eternal Cities? It could be her body. We don't really know of any other Empyreans.

                    thought this was a weapon i could use and searched maniacally in my inventory just to find out it's a key item

                      This looks to be the wound given to Godwyn the Golden, seen from the flesh-side (not the skin-side).
                      What this illuminates is why Ranni orchestrated his assassination - to create this weapon.

                        Anybody else notice the similarities in the blade to the “sacred relic sword”? The swords description also reads “Sword wrought from the remains of a god who should have lived life eternal”. What I’ve concluded is that killing really important things in this universe gives you a twisty blade.

                          It said it's born of a corpse and proof of high treason... And it looks like the wound on the back of Godwyn...

                            If you notice, it's got some similarity to the blade wielded by the elden beast and the godslayer greatsword as well. All three seem to be somewhat made of bone and have voids along the surface of the blade.

                              I would dearly love to know for sure, when this was forged relative to https://eldenring.wiki.fextralife.com/Black+Knife, https://eldenring.wiki.fextralife.com/Godslayer's+Greatsword, https://eldenring.wiki.fextralife.com/Inseparable+Sword, or https://eldenring.wiki.fextralife.com/Blade+of+Calling. Currently, I think the Noxtellan Numen women who would become the Black Knives described this artifact to Ranni, which allowed her to create the Black Knives for them, which explains how she knew about it and asks you to retrieve it. From there I think the https://eldenring.wiki.fextralife.com/Blade+of+Calling was Marika's knockoff of the Black Knife design. https://eldenring.wiki.fextralife.com/Death's+Poker and https://eldenring.wiki.fextralife.com/Helphen's+Steeple are clearly even older, but which one predates the other? There's so much we don't know by design, since the Golden Order controls so much of the information that is available.

                                I'm curious if this blade was forged from Ranni's body, which is why her remains are hidden away. The only other corpse that makes sense would be if it were forged from Godwyn's remains, but I think that's manifested elsewhere.

                                Both seem plausible given the design overlap to the Sacred Relic Sword that the Elden Beast forges from Radagon/Marika's body.

                                What's also interesting about this is that the Sacred Relic Sword is made of intertwined Silver & Gold, exactly the same way D's armor is, where it's heavily implied that his "Twin" younger brother is actually a Mimic of him, and they share the same soul.

                                The reason that's notable is that it's upon entering Nokron that Fia grants you the Weathered Dagger which was once made of intertwined Silver & gold, but is now worn down and marred by a black gash — and it's the item that kills D and separates him from his Mimic brother, who you give the armor to.

                                There's a lot of symbolism around the split facets of the demigods when the Cursemark of Death is fractured in two, but Godwyn's Death and D being a hunter of Those Who Live in Death to feed Malekith the Death Root seems to be all linked into the elements of Godwyn, as a parallel to what Ranni is doing.

                                  Before being sent to retrieve it, the chest containing it cannot be opened, and you only get a message saying "you are not destined to open this."

                                    the "finger"s she killed I noticed has, three fingers. Three digits, albiet twisted and mangled, are protruding from the victim she's killed. So I'm wondering if she killed and agent of the frenzied flame.. or if maybe they just reused the three finger's model to make this corpse. I'm confused as it doesn't make much sense visually.

                                    She has no reason to kill a three fingers other than y'know chaos being bad for her, and generally everything else- but beyond that its not whats binding her to her "purpose" as an empyrean to the two fingers. If you had found at two fingered corpse down there, it would make sense.. but we dead just find a three fingered corpse..

                                    So I'm just wondering what exactly we're looking at here.

                                      Is there any chance this could be connected to the gloam eyed queen? Could this be her body? (She was an empyrean, and this looks like Radagon/Marikas fate after the final boss fight) It would make an interesting theory… but I might be reaching

                                        we know Ranni uses this to kill the two fingers after giving it to her and completing her quest, has anyone instead tried taking it with them to the three fingers below the capital and seeing if there's a special interaction there? just curious

                                          It really should mention Seluvis on here, seeing as how if you turn this blade in immediately, you permenantly lose out on a 15% damage magic talisman.

                                            FYI, when you pick this up it is shown under the "key items" section of your inventory and is not under "melee armaments". Don't be like me and freak out when you can't find the fancy looking dagger you just picked up.

                                            • Did Ranni kill the greater will with this? We see the Frenzied Flame take refuge within the Three Fingers deep underground. What if the greater will was hiding within the two fingers she killed as well?

                                                Kek I thought this was a weapon. I wandered around Nokron for a solid two or three more hours beating my dead against the Gargoyles from time to time because I thought the treasure would be better hidden.

                                                  This is actually the same type of weapon as the Sacred relic sword. Both feature the same design motif and even some details are the exact same like the intertwining spines

                                                    1. If she isn't in the tower after you get the item, repent using a celestial dew at the church of vows (interact with the statue in the water)
                                                    2. You cannot open the chest until you progress through Ranni's quest. This means completing Seluvis' quests, talking to Sellen and killing Radahn.
