Giant's Red Braid is a Whip in Elden Ring. The Giant's Red Braid scales primarily with Strength, Dexterity, and Faith and is a good Weapon for those users who rather to execute long range attacks. Its unique ability grants a large array of rapid fire attacks..

 

Hefty whip woven from the flame-red hair of a Fire Giant.

Every giant is red of hair, and Radagon was said to have despised his own red locks. Perhaps that was a curse of their kind.

      Ok, here me out: it is stated in another description that the elden ring was brandished in the forge of the giants after the war. Radagon has a thing for thornes and all the fire giants were killed with spears of thorns ripping them apart from beneath. Kinda like a whack a mole, but with a deity that respawns in his followers. So, after beating them and using the Forge and the Flame of Ruin to create the Elden Ring as an object and bounding it to their body, he cursed himself to have the Mark of Ruin, resembled by his red hair. But, before and after the slaughter, they appeared as Marika. Probably because of publicity, but implying that Godfrey knew of their secret, but that is also implied at many other places and by Melina at some churches and battle sites.

        This is my favourite remembrance reward, the 'burn, o flame' incantation is really nice as well and if you summon your mimic with a sacred seal in your off hand it will use the incantation multiple times without costing any FP. This whip, golden vow and the mimic casting 'burn, O flame' is shredding the red albinaurics around the blood-filled lake.

          I don't know if I have just gotten lucky, but I've noticed the Ash of War on this thing is a true combo if any of the hits stagger the enemy in PVP.

            Just used this Weapon Skill during a Sanguine Noble invasion before the Mohg teleporter. He was ducking and dodging everything I threw at him including Wave of Gold (didn't know that was possible). This whip knocked him on his butt multiple times. Undodgeable?
            Pairing with Hoslow with Holy damage. They rock.

              Deepest Lore: All right, so I have come back with a new theory: What if it was Marika who was originally cursed by the Fire Giants to have red hair, and Radagon was then created by Marika in order to transfer the curse entirely onto him? It would make sense since it would look bad if the leader of the Golden Order had the red hair of the Fell God. From Melina, we learn that Marika referred to Radagon as "my other half" in her private quarters, further supporting the idea that Radagon had always been her other half she broke off from herself.

                Deepest Lore: So either Radagon was a cursed by the fire giants to have red hair like them, or he was a fire giant himself. We know from the Sword of Milos that human-sized giants existed, so the latter theory is certainly possible.

                  Ok, so this weapon kinda slaps in a single run. It has its benefits of reach and the good weapon skill. This weapon really shines in NG+ when you get the second one and power stance them.

                    Fun Fact: The hair that this whip is woven from comes directly from the crack of the Giant's bottom, which is why it's so easy to light aflame. Each hair is encrusted and bathed in highly flammable ass-juice that hasn't been washed since the dawn of its birth. Stop by again for more Elden Ring Fun Facts!

                      Imagine slaying a literal giant with a face for a torso who yeets explosive fireballs at you, only to be given the choice between a spell or this disgusting lock of hair we call a whip...

                        Bit underwhelming compared to other whip options. Was hoping it would have some stagger but its basically just a less cool skin of the magma whip. Art is definitely better than magma whip but only gives 50% more reach and has very little poise to make it actually viable.

                          I have been destroying PVP with the weapon art, pair with a frost infused haslows for bleed, frost and fire on frost damage

                            What a cool weapon. Still feels a little underwhelming for something from a Remembrance... maybe the damage could just be a 1.3x higher, or Flame Dance could actually hit everything in a radius around you instead of having some bizarre blind spots behind you.

                              Is the AR good enough if I'm just increasing STR? I have 25 in FTH but I don't plan on increasing it any further.

                                My new favorite backup weapon. Good range for a quick attack. Great weapon art that can give some much needed breathing room when surrounded, and best of all, it can actually strike out at flying enemies like those hawks.

                                  I don't get why this has better scaling than my magma blade (b instead of c) yet the additional damage from the scaling is less. So weird..

                                    Even though I'm a paladin, makes me want to swap to a pyromancer and whip it around above my head constantly because I just love the weapon art.

                                      This whip has a mean weapon art. Very good for clearing out groups and certainly better than any other AOE pyromancy I found. It seems to be a trend that weapon arts are better than most high faith incantations.

                                        It suck that you have to kill this extremley hard boss you can only get a piece of his ass hair. Why can't i get his giant plate weapon?

                                          You have to basically beat the game to get this, the fire giant in the mountaintop of the giants, then you talk to the lady in the roundtable hold next to the "two fingers"
