Magma Blade is a Curved Sword in Elden Ring. The Magma Blade scales primarily with Strength and Faith, with reduced scaling in Dexterity, and is a good Weapon for characters who prioritise strength and want to deal additional Fire damage while benefitting from the swift curved sword move set. 

 

Curved sword with a blade fashioned from the lava of Mt. Gelmir.
An armament of the man-serpents, impossible for a human to have made.

Deals fire damage.

 

Where to Find Magma Blade in Elden Ring

The Magma Blade weapon can be found at the following location:

  • Possible drop from Man-Serpent enemies wielding the orange glowing Magma Blade at Volcano Manor. [Elden Ring Map Link]
    • Two of the Serpents can be easily accessed by going up the wooden elevator outside of the building to the North of the Temple of Eiglay Site of Grace: one enemy down the hallway, the other through the first archway to the right.

  • Sell Value:  er runes 13 200
  • Base drop rate is 1% (at 100 Discovery).
  • Scales with Strength better than Faith: 45/45 Str/Fth equals 608 AR (376 Phys, 231 Fire), 80/16 Str/Fth equals 619 AR (432 Phys, 185 Fire), and 9/80 Str/Fth equals 536 AR (280 Phys, 254 Fire).

      I'm not sure anyone is going to believe me but I got two of them in the same farming session. I used the silver scarab, silver tear mask and pickled fowl foot consumables. Each pickled foot lasts long enough for two runs without fast travelling back to the grace at the temple of eiglay. But bear in mind I was using the sacred relic farming sword to quickly kill all three serpent-men then sprinting back to the grace checkpoint. I only used nine of the pickled fowl foot in total for two of the swords to drop for me.

        I got two of these on my first try now I should probably do a build in the future where I duel wield these

          Useful tip for anyone farming this item: Swarm of Flies stuns these serpents very easily. Throw one out, run up to them, hit them with a charged heavy attack or ash of war. Easy farm

          • Anonymous

            Took me about 45 mins to an hour of farming from the Temple of Eigley grace using the silver scarab and 25 arcane. Someone below mentioned "rebooting" and you should try it. I have done that with previous "souls" game farming covenant items. It really works and others have said as much. If the snakes start dropping shields then a sword is sure to follow. Best faith melee sword by far, wish I got it months ago. Took down PLACIDUSAX with all his fatness on my second try using this which I have not done with any character including bleed builds.

              I've literally respec all my point into 99 arcane. got the silver scarab and fowl foot. most discovery possible in this game. second day of farming and no sword. Fist day farmed for like 2-3 hours. Today i farmed for about 2.5 hours.... Honestly **** drop rates like that.

                I have 2 of these and messed around with them in pve and pvp a fair bit. My 2 cents:
                + its a curved sword. good moveset, especially the running and jumping multi-hit attacks
                + the ash of war is pretty good. its spinning slash+, and the magma puddles do a fair bit of damage when enemies are staggered by the spinning slash part and they zone out/stagger enemies with low poise so its somewhat safe to spam
                + fits well as a lighter weapon/side arm alternative in a str/fth build which is mostly composed of only heavier weapon classes
                - AR isn't anything too special, flame art bandit's curved sword faith in particular has comparable AR while having interchangeable AoW
                - pain in the ****ing ass to farm, if you don't have the patience for it you are better off just getting one and infusing another curved sword with flame art as the only thing that you're really missing is the unique AoW
                - 15 ****ing dex requirement despite being a str/fth weapon is annoying and misleading
                Its been pointed out that the recommended stat allocation should be equal str/fth first (45/45 or 50/50) because the AoW scales with both the AR (spinning slash portion) and faith (magma puddles, fire damage for AR). Afterwards, Str has better scaling than fth.
                All things considered, definitely a bit more trouble than what its worth when looking at it practically, but the glowing blades look cool, the AoW looks cool, and you get the show off the fact that you have one of the rarest weapons in the game.

                  as a pyromancer, i now want to farm this item, not for the blade but for the stones
                  your pain strengstens me lol

                    I feel kinda bad reading the comments cause I got this weapon on my first try with only 11 arcane and no boosts

                    • Anonymous

                      Aside from the comments on farming - this weapon shreds quite a lot in PvE. For the fun of it, I tried beating Radagon & Elden Beast on NG+2 with two of these bad boys, and got them on my second try. You can pretty much kill any boss easily with this. AoW staggers a surprising amount of enemies. Conclusion - the farm is worth it if you can endure the pain. Plus, they are pretty damn sexy lookin'

                        All the comments about farming aside, is it worth picking this weapon up for a build or two or are there better alternatives?

                          Lies. This weapon actually has a .0001% drop rate. I tried to farm this for two days straight. You’d have a better chance at acquiring the battle hammer from the duelist in Leyndell

                            i unknowingly farmed the Black Dumpling head piece from that creepy guy after the elevator while i was farming this weapon. at least got that i guess!

                                Took 33 tries (total of 66 snakes killed) for two to drop, used silver tear mask and silver foot with 37 arcane.

                                  thought, lemme try and get this could be interesting to use. i go equip the sliver scarab, silver tear mask, marikas soreseal and teleport to go start the long and arduous farming process for a 1% drop rate weapon and... first kill drops two of the damn things. i used up all the luck ill ever have and i put it into two funny orange swords. im never gonna get a drop ever again, not a rowa fruit from a noble.

                                    My first one took about 5 hours to farm, I was so upset because it wasn't all that great of a weapon; Unless I'm doing something wrong. I wanted one to try for my level 1 character and I started farming after 10 minutes I remembered how long it took to farm this weapon. So I decided to think outside the box I played offline, and still nothing. But when I killed myself I got the shield, hmmm I killed myself again and I got another shield. Went back killed myself again wait I should mention where I kill myself, just as soon as I kill the first lizard I jump out the window towards the bridge to my death. Everytime I would do that I would get the shield or the shield and 2 extras goodies, and finally after the third time I got the sword all within 10 minutes of finding out this method please let me know if it works. I went back to try it on another account I got the shiedl very quickly. 6 more suicides I got the sword. Beats 4 hours.

                                      I've been farming for this weapon for over an hour now and I don't even know if it is actually good or not. I just want to collect every possible item in one playthrough. XD

                                        I have collected every weapon cept this one. Killed like hundreds and days later still no go. Its the hardest drop for me by far

                                          Finally got the second one. I became a well oiled machine farming this. I timed my last run it took 52 seconds from loading into the grace to teleporting back. 192 discovery and 30 mins for 2. Ride elevator, kill creepy dude, shoot something at snake kill snake to the right, second snake guy is on his way to find you. Rinse. Less than 1 minute for 2 kills.

                                            Do not give up. Its there. Jump attack talisman with dual wield ultra greatswords really helped. Silver tear helmet + Marika Scarseal/Soreseal + Silver Scarab Talisman. at 30 Arcane gives 223 discovery.

                                              I finally got one after trying on and off for 5 hours and my second one dropped about 10 minutes after. I think I dropped a tear, lol.

                                                One just dropped for me when I originally was just passing by to pick up my last cookbook, because I already grinded 2 using the usual scarab/foot/mask combo (took about 5 hours). Because RNjesus was so kind to me I thnk I will drop it to someone while cooping.

                                                    i was killing the serpents for like 10 minutes and i got 2 of them

                                                      why tf does the "notes and tips" say best used on a pure strength build with minimum faith when the numbers show it's clearly most efficient on a 45/45 STR/FAI split? 80/16 split only gains 11 AR total over 45/45 while requiring 6 more levels invested and also sacrificing almost all scaling on the fire damage/weapon art

                                                        This couldn't be more wrong, lmao, the entire point of this weapon is the fire damage and weapon art, both of which scale purely off Faith, if you want a curved sword for your physical damage STR build literally every other weapon in the class is a better option

                                                          • A helpful tip to anyone farming this is the colour of the item is purple rather than white as a quick identifier on whether it dropped.

                                                            Also based on the sample size of numbers here including my own experience, the blade more than likely is a 0.5% drop chance like the nobles slender sword.

Take the elevator, kill the albinauric, go to the side entrance facing the lava and kill magma blade serpent around the corner. Then go back to the main room and the other door facing a bunch of poison zombies. Ignore them all, sprint to magma blade serpent and kill while back is turned.

Every time I’ve fought someone using this all they do is run away until they get an opening then spam the AoW.

                                                                                      Volcanic stone.

                                                                                      3h of farming, reading comment while returning to grace.

                                                                                      Was really REALLY thinking I should just stop.
                                                                                      Volcanic stone.

                                                                                      Sword drops.

                                                                                        After farming this for a while, I have come to the conclusion that it never drops because it dosnt actually exist. This entire page is an elaborate troll job.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          You don't really have to farm two of them. You can use magma blade in right hand, fire/flame art curved sword in left hand. If you have higher str than faith use fire, if you have higher faith use flame art. Your moveset will be identical to dual magma blades and the damage is nearly similar. Bandit's curved sword would be the best option for fire/flame art, though it is also a rare drop. But you can also just use fire/flame art scavenger curved sword which also has a little amount of bleed, but the ar is worse than bandit's.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            personally i think this is the best curved sword in the game. Its most definitely worth the farm to get although, I recommend obtaining 2 of them because of its powerstance. the running attack and jump attack is very good while powerstanced. and the weapon has a amazing aoe ash of war which melts players and bosses. it has very short range so running, jumping, and baiting heavy attacks/ash of wars is the type of play style to use with this weapon. p.s backstepping is good to combo with this weapon

                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                              I crafted 5 more sivler foots, spent all of them and ran out of them with one last serpent on the way back to grace.

                                                                                              My thought process? This:

                                                                                              Should just go back, no point trying without the silver foot.
                                                                                              It's overall not worth grinding. I hate grinding and Im just wasting my time here.
                                                                                              I might as well take the last one on the way. Simply just because..
                                                                                              No way it will drop from the last serpent

                                                                                              It fcking dropped.
                                                                                              I started breathing heavily, walking around in the game mindlessly.
                                                                                              Alt tabed to tell you about it.

                                                                                              Go rescale for 99 arcane before you start, wear silver tear scarab...
                                                                                              and most importantly - if you dont have silver foot active, it's not wrth trying.
                                                                                              Although...

                                                                                                this weapon ****ing slaps, especially when dual wielded. the only problem im the range. it has nice DoT, the skill breaks shields, breaks enemy stances so easily,high damage, looks cool, melts anything that isnt fire resistant, fun to use, low fp, overall a good solid weapon and very worth the farming.

                                                                                                • Anonymous

They are awesome, great ash of war, nice powerstance moveset and fast with around 650 AR each for me at lvl 180. They can melt bosses in the right setup, been soloing Godfrey for people all week. Downsides are poor range and high stamina usage
