Morgott's Cursed Sword is a Curved Greatsword in Elden Ring. The Morgott's Cursed Sword scales primarily with Arcane and Dexterity, with reduced scaling in Strength, and is a good Weapon for melee combat. Its unique skill, Cursed-Blood Slice, allows players to charge forward and deliver a downward slice that causes an additional Blood Loss build up effect.

 

Warped blade of shifting hue used by Morgott, the Omen King. 

The accused blood that Morgott recanted and sealed away reformed into this blade.

      Good alternative choice as a dex/arcane weapon choice after ROB nerf and great curved sword buff. Not op though, for me the after nerf ROB and Morgott curved sword takes about the same time to defeat malenia in 1v1. The bloodflame slice is pure fashion.

        Ah, a curved sword for my arc build! let's just see if I meet the req-


        >35 dex

        ...At least I got 30,000 more runes I guess.

          I'm buying as much as my inventory can hold and filling my boots with ingredients and upgrade materials as per NG+ checklist before starting my next playthrough.
          I really like this sword and it's weapon art, I also have Mohg's sacred spear and I'm toying with the idea of a respec heavy into ARC. But at the same time I don't really want to put the blasphemous blade, godslayer's greatsword and giant's red braid aside by putting what I have in FTH into ARC, any opinions or ideas? I don't see much mention of FTH / ARC builds, is this because I would also need DEX and I'd be spreading my attributes too thin?

            Good weapon, would recommend it for any strength arc build. You will have this half way through your first play through and it doesn’t disappoint, in terms of the weapon skill, thank god curved swords were buffed in 1.06. It comes out faster and the bleed buildup is solid. 10/10

              Originally picked this up just because who wouldn't want a cool shimmery rainbow sword, but it quickly grew on me and it's my favorite greatsword I've used so far. The bloodflame is such a good roll-catcher and it's surprisingly fast and light for a greatsword. The bleed buildup isn't really the point of the weapon, I find, but a nice bonus suprise when it does proc. Overall a nicely versatile and reliable weapon. I kept finding myself switching to it whenever I was having a tough time with other builds in later NG+ cycles.

                Had great luck against Alecto using this sword. The Cursed-Blood Slice fire attack consistently staggers her.

                  Low base damage, poor scaling and a 110 crit modifier on a weapon class that has one of the lowest critical damage multipliers, I can't see any reason to use this other than the weapon art

                  • Anonymous

                    This blade far outclasses bloodhound but only if you spec for it. Alexander's shard, Fire Scorpion Charm, Ritual Sword Talisman, and your choice of a talisman as last slot, but I usually use Great Jar's Arsenal for heavy armor at 30 endurance. You could always go for more damage instead. The weapon art hits like a truck in PvP and is pretty good in PvE as well. I also tend to roll catch panic rollers with its delay. It's way better for parries and does considerable damage at 50 dex on riposte even compared to misery-cord.

                    The one downside to this weapon is that you cannot buff it, but Flame Grant Me Strength raises your WA damage by a ton. I'd say a good buff vs enemy weakness on Bloodhound Fang could make Bloodhound a contender, but not in dps. You want as much Dex as you can get, until you hit the damage cap, and then focus on Arc.

                    For me, I tend to like to powerstance, which is why I like using Great Jar's Arsenal. Bloodhound is okay to offhand with this, but you can't buff your offhand weapon, meaning that you'd be better off off-handing a different curved greatsword. That being said, I haven't really found any other ones that I like to duel wield with this that scale with arc for bleed. Instead, I like to mainhand swap between Morgott's blade and Bloodhound when I need to be mobile while still dishing out damage like at Malenia. Bloodhound Fang's weapon art has helped me space Malenia's startup waterfowl so many times, while still doing damage. Morgott's blade can't do that.

                    Can we please get more curved greatswords that actually bleed? Did I miss some of them? I suppose I could mainhand Bloodhound Fang and 2 hand Morgott's blade to use the WA, but then that removes Bloodhound's weapon buff.

                    • Well, I was trading rememberances just for completionist purposes, and this one got me. I was using the Bloodhound Fang+10, but since I liked the Curved Greatswords decided to give this one a try, and upgraded it to +9.

                      The first point is the visuals, having a Gamer Curved Greatsword is simply amazing, Bloodhoun Fang is nice indeed, but the lore and visuals of Morgott's is simply compelling.

                      The moveset is about the same, and after almost 70 hours of bloodhound fang, it wasn't a problem at all. But statwise was a drawback for me. In damage output the Fang outperforms the Cursed Sword by a lot, making even the 10% crit bonus useless.

                      But the WA on the Cursed Sword is (literally) fire. The damage potencial using the followup was doing almost 50% more damage on the Mountaintop Of The Giants Trolls, compared to the BHF. The catch is that is harder to achieve all this pontencial, cause your enemy have to almost dance on you slashes to take all the damage. Other important point is that is also a bit trickier to hit, compared to BHF WA.

                      I'll definitely be using this (MCS) on areas that the damage output isn't a issue (exploration), but for bosses the BHF will be my main focus.

                      I might be noting this difference because of my build being heavily invested on DEX, but the D scalling on ARC doesn't seem to be much of a difference on a 50/50 build...


                      (Well, english isn't my native language, sorry for any inconvenience on this little bible).

                      • Anonymous

                        There's a reason to use this over Bloodhound Fang? It looks beautiful, but stat-wise does not seem to worth the change, D on ARC does not seem to make it any better...

                        • The 17 arcane requirement really makes me want to push this build towards melee/dragon seal hybrid caster, but it’s damn near impossible to squeeze faith points into a RL125 build. Doable on RL150, but you could get by with just the 17 arcane and the rest in dex. Just feels like a waste. 17 is such an awkward place to leave arcane at IMO.

                            This is the weapon for people who want to use rivers of blood but can't bring themselves to become spineless losers. It has a pretty good moveset, also a great weapon art for closing distances and pressuring the opponent. Its weapon art is actually very easy to evade if you're calm about it and mind the second bloodflame talons that it leaves so its not really busted, just plain good.

                            If you're a dex build but can afford some point to arcane this is one of the best weapons you can use.

                              I didn't know that blood could do so much damage. I guess all you need is blood to kill things and not a big slab of iron.

                                Hey so since the AoW is bloodflame, and usual bloodflame gets buffed by Flame Scorpion talisman, does this weapon's AoW damage get buffed by Flame Scorp?

                                  The weapon art deals decent stagger damage. 2 full inputs and I can stagger the giant in front of Godrick. My gripe is the FP cost. It really shouldn't cost 20 FP.

                                      Is this worth using as a dex build with only enough arcane to meet the requirements or does it’s special scale exclusively on arcane?

                                        first of all it's grip is small while still allowing the user to execute two handed techniques the blade is the longest in it's class yet thin enough to not add unnecessary weight that's about four pounds lighter than normal, one could carry two more weapons and a medium armor without being overburdened.
                                        the blade shape is original too, it's not strongly curved nor is it stright while difficult to handle it can out space weapons in it's class it can even compete with greatswords too, it's a tool for the pros.
                                        couple this with techniques such as dash in rotating swing, jumping swing, backstep step in rotating swing, and of course cursed-blood slice, all the techniques one could want to initiate combat and stay aggresive unlike bloodhound's fang.
                                        it's mix ups are solid as well between all of the diffrent techniques you could use while dashing in, the opponent wont react to all of them and is bound to make a mistake
                                        even a heavily armored enemy will fear cursed-blood slice as it always breaks posture and poise and the blood loss will ensure that you win every trade.
                                        cursed-blood persisting after every slice can allow one to handle multiple targets with it's suprior reach and area denial
                                        also cursed-blood slice can allow one to forgo spacing principles and force thier way in aginst most attacks and magicks with this masterpice of a weapon you get to control most situations in a fight.
                                        and remember that it's light enough to allow you to carry two more weapons and switching your approach and style on the fly.
                                        Whoever did this is a professional. No question - this thing could cut a one-slice at 10 yards.

                                            I'm powerstancing two of these in NG+ and so far it's pretty awesome. Looks fantastic and hits pretty hard. Y'all are too obsessed with numbers. Git gud and the numbers won't matter, it's all about the style.

                                              the weapon art is very nice now and makes it worth using, if you wanted to, but the actual AR on the normal swings is pretty underwhelming. People will do as much damage with katanas/straight swords with much faster swings.

                                                It would be really cool if this had the Omen flame effect from Morgott's second phase. At least for a few seconds after using the skill. We already don't have Morgott's move set with the sword or his weapon conjuring.

                                                  Am using this with Hoslow's whip in NG+ atm. It's really fun to stagger and then dash onto a staggered enemy.

                                                    After 1.04 buffed the speed of the WA, this sword is definitely as viable if not better than a tricked out flamberge. Pair with the bloodboon incantation in PVP and you have a great roll catch/distance closer WA and the ability to wall people in the arena where you want them to be.

                                                      An occult Flamberge outclasses this weapon with a higher AR and more bleed (112 when soft capped). It's a tragedy because the weapon art and visuals are stunning.

                                                        Needs to lower WA animation time or ability to cancel last second of animation. Because that’s exactly what stops it’s WA from being consistently usable against mobs that don’t stagger like lobsters and fire prelates

                                                          This is followed by both the Zamor and Firemonk Flameblade with 9.0 wgt.

                                                                            Even on a dex build like say, 18 str, 60 dex and 17 arcane, Bloodhound Fang still outperforms Morgott's Cursed Sword and by an even further margin. The only saving grace for this weapon is the ash of war and honestly it doesnt really compensate much for the steep stat requirements it demands of you for either a dex or arcane build.

                                                                                How worth it is to replace bloodhound's fang with this? I'm power stancing bloodhound's fang +9 with a blood dismounter. On paper morgott's seems better for bleed builds because it scales with arcane whereas BH fang does not. Otherwise, with BH fang I can still always buff with blood flame to increase bleed. If morgott's is better, is it better enough to switch from an invested BH fang?

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    • Anonymous

Also a lot of people are saying it’s not good so… I don’t wanna use bloodhound fang cuz I heard it’s overpowered. Not really sure what to do
