Grafted Blade Greatsword is a Colossal Sword in Elden Ring. The Grafted Blade Greatsword scales primarily with Strength, with minor scaling in Dexterity. With its heavy set stats and unique skill, this weapon was built to overcome larger beasts and foes it comes into contact with. This Greatsword can only be wielded by a worthy warrior and will require high Strength stats before it can be used. 

 

The storied sword of Castle Morne. A revenger's weapon, it is burdened with oceans of anger and regret. 
One of the legendary armaments. 

A lone surviving champion from a country now vanished was so determined to continue fighting that he claimed the swords of an entire clan of warriors.

      Amazing weapon on a standard vigor, endurance, strength build. Somber smithing stones make this weapon easy to get to high levels around mid game.
      Pair with godricks greatrune for overpowered stats (+defenses).
      Pick up a heavy armor like tree sentinel and you are set.

      Game actually gets too easy and simple this way.

      Greatswords arent bread and butter in pvp though

      • Honestly great weapon for someone roleplaying as an 'anguished warrior' archetype, carrying the blades of his fallen brethren. I paired this was the fingerprint greatshield for my 'Last of the Knights of Plenty' character. This weapon goes very well with the frenzied flame ending imo. Very fun for strength builds overall, even if the weapon art is a bit boring but still neat thematically.

          Im running wolverine build, 2 handin hookclaws cos i only have 1 so i cant dual wield. The buff from this affects the character not the weapon and so its a decent buff going into tough fights. It works with the buff from commander oneils spear aswell because while they both apply damage n protection buffs to your character not your weapon they apply it in different ways. The grafted sword increases your stats by 5 which increase your base damage while the rally from oneils spear just increase damage, mix this with a spell "flame grant me strength" n you got 3 very strong buffs, only 60 seconds but it takes my +23 claws from 320 to 580ish AR for some extra damage buff ust use beast roar ash for extra damage and give your heavy attack a combo just like your norm attack. Starting a boss with these 3 buffs + your flask buff and you chopping chunks of health in a few hits. I know the weapons are heavy but the buffs work, just equip em before the boss

            The skill gives a 5 sec buff identical to endure, including dmg negation (45/40% in PvE/PvP) & ability to bounce back some attacks. Lasts longer than endure. Very useful for early game PvE and low level PvP with the huge stats buff. Two handed, with Radagon's soreseal and starscourge heirloom, you need only 17 str for it.

              Not surprising, this used to be a reward from Godrick's Rune of remembrance at some point, and presumably his weapon of choice.
              They probably went with the Axe of Godrick to more heavily emphasize on his ties to the Golden Lineage.

                I forgot what patch 1.04 did for this weapon, we need more comments about that.

                No, actually, this is ugly.
                It's ash is impressive at all times, but it is just ugly.
                When I saw someone using it I thought it was a club of some kind, made to look like a giant, elongated pinecone.


                If it looked like the claymore hiding under all the grafted blades I might even use it.
                As it stands, it will forever just be the thing I use to cast Law of Regression on my non-int characters, for the Goldmask quest.

                  The Oath of Vengeance skill was updated in the 1.07 patch. According to its page, the attribute buff now lasts 60 seconds and the poise buff lasts 5 seconds. It may also prevent stagger from the hemorrhage/frostbite effect.

                  • I wish buffs to your vigor or mind stats didn't require you to drink a flask immediately after just to take advantage of them. It would make rune arcs less clunky too since you wouldn't have to rest at the grace a second time when throwing yourself at bosses.

                      I would have been cool if this weapon did strike dmg with bleed buildup, kind of like a flail or morningstar

                          I wonder how one manages NOT to deal strike damage with this hell of a peace of iron. With a kinetic energy required to swing a thing it should rather crash skulls and bones right away making cutting flesh that covers them a mere side effect.

                            Is Strength the only stat of importance to you? Do you enjoy sending the small and weak flying with the lightest of attacks? Does crushing poise like the pathetic stat it is excite you? Then this is the weapon for you my friend! With B str. scaling at higher upgrade levels and the ability to bring even the largest of foes to their pathetic knees in recognition of your true superiority this weapon will have no problems carrying you to your final destination in overwhelmingly crushing POWER! This thing pairs well with the turtle charm for faster stamina regen, winged sword insignia for MORE DAMAGE with successive attacks. I also recommend the Champions armor set and the Lone Wolf ashes for that truely barbarian conquer vide but your best friend wolves will hunt down and destroy poise even faster.

                                Haven't played since doing 2 playthroughs right after launch, with the patch that buffed speed and guard for colossal weapons, is this one more viable (as in you can actually get away with doing something other than jump R2 spam) and fun than it used to be?

                                  If you're doing a pure strength build like I was don't fully upgrade this weapon. The Ruins greatsword outclasses this weapon in damage completely and the buff this weapons gives tapers off pretty hard when you reach the soft caps for certain stats. I imagine it might be good for a quality build or some other duel strength build but I haven't tried it.

                                  • The blades even kinda look like raven feathers, hmmm. Would’ve been really cool if the current AoW buffs could be augmented via a charged R2 into a projectile cluster that shot them all at the target for a proc bleed, and then they get recalled back to the sword after hit (or regardless). Maybe they could even make a raven cawing sound while they attack.

                                      i never did bother thinking about this specific legendary weapon but i was thinking about it and realized that it gets its name because it's made out of several different blades, similar to grafting only without severing limbs

                                      • I am pretty sure the ash of war doesn't actually increase poise, just stats. You can find the effect in SpEffectParam -> 1850 (found the ID by using the Hexinton CE table effect logger). I looked at the values and it just increases the stats, not poise, but I may be wrong here. Needs actual testing.

                                          A great off-hand colossal sword for the fashion oriented dual CS users who want lots of damage and a useful buff.

                                            Did this item get its description changed? I could of swore it used to say something about the "avenger" falling at the hands of Godfrey.

                                              It's tough to beat this in terms of raw damage. Unless I'm fighting a quick enemy, I end up using this at +9, or Ordovis' Greatsword +9/Death's Poker +9 most of the time. The poise damage on it is crazy, so, along with the high damage and the AoW, as long as you can get 1 hit in, you can usually just chain stagger them to death if they survive the first blow or 2. Also can be incredible for Crit attacks. When I hit a Golem with a crit, it does almost 11K damage, which is bonkers. Pump your END up enough to wear something like Tree Sentinal, Radahn's Lion or Crucible Tree/Axe set and still be able to mid roll, and you are an absolute tank.

                                                For everyone reading: This is the best scaling STARTING str weapon for that strong build playthrough you've been putting off.

                                                Slap on five somber stones early and use the (relatively) low wielding reqs to start smashing your way through the game.

                                                • Ahh, thinking back to the beginning of my first playthrough, young, dumb, and inexperienced. First souls game. Sold this to merchant kale for a whopping 200 runes. Thankfully it cane be acquired early in the game

                                                  • Anonymous

                                                    Been toying with this with my new Str. character since I blew past it the first time. the 1.04 base damage upgrade is pretty huge: It going up to near 400 raw damage before scaling compared to Ruin GS's 303 isn't something to overlook, and considering you can get it very early in the game without dealing with a particularly nasty duo makes it more of a contender.

                                                    I'm...mixed on the skill. The stat boost and poise is handy for squeezing out more damage out of the thing, especially early on, but there's clearly better alternatives. Still, if you're looking for an early game Somber Str. weapon this will more than certainly do the job.

                                                      This is the ultimate twink weapon to kill low level invaders btw. You can get absurd Defense values (which reduces incoming damage by a flat amount) by stacking a number of bonus stat buffs.
                                                      1) Start with the Samurai class
                                                      2) Rush Strength Knot Crystal Tear (Stormhill) and Starscourge Heirloom (Fort Gael). These will give you the stats to wield the GBG without leveling anything up.
                                                      3) Go head for Morne castle, picking up a +1 somberstones near the Night Cavalry at the bridge, the morningstar near Irina, and a +2 somberstone near jellyfish at the beach. Also while you're running around, don't forget to pick up Golden Seeds, Sacred Tears, Lift keys, and other such key items.
                                                      4) Skip straight to Castle Morne bossfight and kill the Leonine Misbegotten. Receive the GBG as your reward.
                                                      5) Upgrade your weapon to +1, +2 at most for pvp search range purposes. *Remember this build is better the lower level you are.
                                                      6) Kill Greydoll using the Morningstar for a free 70k souls (Route: 3rd church of Marika teleporter -> Bestial Sanctum -> Lenne's Rise spiritspring-> Minor Erdtree spiritspring -> and you're right at Greydoll & Fort Faroth). Level Vigor to 30, Strength as much as you can (probably around 20 at this point).
                                                      Optional Step: pick up Radagon's Soreseal from the fort. I don't use this because of the increased damage taken, but it does give you another +5 str, dex, vig and end, if you want to stay even lower level than what I am suggesting)
                                                      8) Kill Margit for your second talisman slot. You can now equip that Radagon Soreseal if you want.
                                                      9) Skip through Stormveil using the main gate (it might take a couple tries to learn the ballista timing but the grace is right there. don't worry about dying) then kill Godrick with Nepheli's help for his rune & rememberance. Use the 40k total to level your str to 28 or 23, depending on whether you want to equip Radagon's Soreseal. Remember, this build is better the lower level you are so don't level just because you have excess runes.
                                                      10) Go back to the starting gate and access the Divine Tower of Limgrave to activate your Godrick's rune. With this rune and Oath of Vengeance active, you will essentially be at level 120 in terms of Defense. Take a few hits from some random mobs and laugh at the absurdly low damage you take. But you're not quite done yet.
                                                      11) Next go grab the Dexterity-Knot Crystal Tear in Liurnia on an island near the Scenic Isle grace. While you're at it, go grab the Two Fingers Heirloom Talisman (optional for more stats) in the Purified Ruins as well as the Sacred Tears and Golden Seeds in the area.
                                                      12) Sprint through Raya Lucaria Academy & kill Radagon's Wolf and Renella. Use the runes to buy out Boggart's stock of Boiled Prawn.
                                                      13) Speak to the Fingers to receive your third talisman slot. Speak to Gideon so that Nepheli spawns in Roundtable Hold. Speak to Nepheli for the Arsenal Talisman (optional for equipload). Then go to the lower level of Roundtable hold and kill the invader for the Taunter's Tongue.
                                                      Congratulations, you've done it. Now you have a build that, at level ~40, has Defense equivalent to a character that's 105-130 levels higher. Accessible, cheap, and efficient equipment that you might want to wear for defenses are the Chain Armor set, the Knight Armor set, and the Scaled Armor set. Add on the Boiled Prawn, and you're nigh unkillable. If you want another stat raising talisman, Millicent's Prosthesis-Wearer Talisman is the next easiest to obtain. You could also go all the way to Godfrey and get your last talisman slot as well as access to Boiled Crab, but that's a bit tough with a +2 special weapon.
                                                      Now all that's left to do is to activate your Taunter's Tongue at the Academy Gate Town grace (no gank squad pls, you don't need it) and murder the poor unsuspecting invaders that are simply following Varre's orders. Crouch poke and trade your way to victory.

                                                        At 74 str two handed the damaged increased by about 60-70 for me due to the buff. Pretty solid and rivals the greatsword in terms of damage now, as well as having great blocking stats for a weapon.

                                                          Just so you know, the activation of this skill grants you extra poise (aside from the bonus poise during 30s). It allowed me to stand against a Fire Prelate's jumping attack. Aka you can use it to gain Hyperarmor. Also you can use the activation to poise through even troll attacks. This ash of War is basically Endure with a 30s Godrick rune and Poise bonus, but w/o Endure/Stamp's Dmg negation. The cast time of this is also pretty fast.

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous
