Nightrider Flail is a Flail in Elden Ring. The Nightrider Flail scales primarily with Strength and Dexterity and is a good Weapon for inducing blood loss to victims and bludgeoning foes with its triple spiked heads. This will require players to have raised their Dexterity a significant amount before this weapon can be wielded. 

 

A flail with two additional bludgeoning heads.  
Weapon of the Night's Cavalry who ride funeral steeds.

The large spikes make it highly effective at inducing blood loss, but also demand higher dexterity to wield.

      I love how hard this thing hits for my dex character, but... I hate how often I hear it clinking around as I run, and I turn around thinking there's an enemy, but it's just me.
      Maybe I'm a dumbass but it's just too distracting for me

        I use this with barbaric roar with millicent’s prosthesis + rotten winged insignia + roar medallion. The uncharged R2 comes out really fast, the range is deceptively good. The animation is also quite appropriate for the weapon class as well. Easily better than that dinky wild strikes ash.

            Why in the actual **** does this weapon scale with Strength instead of Dex for a Fire infusion? ITS A DEX WEAPON. Someone clearly messed up somewhere.

              I used Sacred Nightrider Flail w/ Sacred Blade AoW, paired with Brass Shield w/ Golden Parry, for almost the entire game. Jumping attacks with the flail are great for breaking poise. Guard counters are fast but sometimes miss smaller enemies. The mix of Strike, Holy and Bleed made this a fun, versatile setup, and I only every switched away if a boss was highly resistant to 2 of the 3.

                  I heard that Flails are seen as low-tier, which is a surprise to me. My first playthrough I used Heavy Thrusting Swords and Flails and I had almost no issues (in PvE). The Nightrider Flail is a DEX build multitool: You've got strike damage for things like the miners and skeletons, innate bleed damage, relatively lightweight, and it's buffable to suit the occasion.

                  Only downsides I've come across is the subpar range (just like a Hammer weapon) and that Guard Counters are a cool uppercut but it can completely whiff small or humanoid enemies.

                  On most starting classes all you have to do is kill the Night Cavalry in the Weeping Peninsula and pump DEX to the soft-cap and it should carry you throughout the game.

                  A final note is that the Spinning Chain Ash of War is weird and you can change it, but the one use I've found is that it's great at cheesing NPC Invaders you don't want to fight fairly; just stand on top of wherever they spawn and hold L2 until you can't anymore and most NPCs will be stunlocked and bleeding from your Medieval blender.

                    For a DEX build, this is an invaluable strike weapon. While further in the game, there are others, you learn to appreciate its value as you can get it early on. I've used this from start to finish for enemies that needed striking.

                    • Anonymous

                      Im using it as a sidearm to my eleonora for when I need blunt damage. I just buff it with blood flame and use wild strikes, deleted mohg with it before he could even activate his second phase, the poor bastard.

                        When I see someone using Golden Parry in PVP, I pull out this bad boy. Most of the time they have no idea what happened as their shield is doing nothing while I am smacking them across the head with bleed procs.

                          Mostly a PvP counter weapon, power stance jump atks/crouch atks for poise monsters or unblockable for parry lords. I was really dissapointed with this one, expected it to be much bigger and coming from For Honor as a flail fighter, these things are just boring. But still, if you've got the dex and int don't miss out on the Bastard's Star. It's the best one.

                          • People complaining that not everything can be used as a low-investment caster/infusal weapon need to take a moment to think about what build the weapon might actually be intended for.

                              It always intrigued me, but it disappointed me.
                              Lack of reach, lack of damage and poise/stagger.
                              Situationally great against crystalians, but its unparriable gimmick is only relevant against enemy players.
                              Overall- save yourself the dex if building Str and go for great stars - it shores up every weakness of the nightrider and then some.
                              A simple fix would be to give nighrider flail AoE slams that chain back to back, but it would be a nightmare to balance in the pvp meta, so I guess there is no such thing as simple.

                                I am using this with Lion's Claw inserted as a backup weapon, had to have a Strike damage type armament next to my Slash type Uchigatana and Winged Scythe (character is dex/faith). It's pretty good, poise breaking is effective, and there is bleed. Damage could be higher.

                                  Look people, this weapon NEEDS a massive AOE like stormcaller to be effective. Infuse it with occult to get those sweet bleed procs. I like using it with my dragon caster, perfect for creating some space with aggressive players. Unfortunately, this thing is really stat hungry at 24 Dex in a build that otherwise doesn’t really need it. But I need my black three headed mace for my Targaryen cosplay.

                                  • "This weapon does less damage that this and that so it's bad" - People with just 2 balls that they can't even infuse with lightning, sounds like a skill issue.

                                      Wanted to do a playthtrough with two of these and im so bummed how much they suck ass. Need to put a scope on em to even hit anything and they are also slow AF for the dex they require. They cant even break shields as they should be able to i tried summon a red sign friend to test on shields and they cant break any shield better than any other shite weapon or even fists. This goes for the normal flail aswell.

                                        This needs a buff, the same scaling but less damage than katanas? AND a slower moveset, the only redeeming quality is the poise damage but with no crit multiplier…

                                          I was salty when I killed that night's cavalry then saw the dex requirement, so I've never used it. It was pretty funny how big it was when the night's cavalry was battering me with it though, it reminded me of the flail used by the 1st of 9 from lord of the rings. It doesn't look like that when the player is holding it though, it's small enough to trigger flail envy.

                                            Basically the best strike damage dex weapon. Has one of the best dex scalings in the game and is one of the only that does pure strike damage. Being what it is it's also a great way for dex users to deal good stagger damage and also be aggressive against shields.

                                              Since this is a dex-weapon and inherently requires some dex-stats:
                                              Is it better to upgrade it down the Keep-path to get higher Dex-scaling, or does the Standard-path still result in more damage put together? How much dex do I need for the Keen-path to out-damage the Standard-path?

                                              Also is this the best option for blunt/armour piercing damage for dex-builds?

                                                This is the first time I’ve ever been jealous of a dex build. 24 is a crazy requirement to ask of a strength build and man… it looks so cool.

                                                  range is a little disappointing for a stick with a ball on a chain, but it does good damage. I assume it also does good stamina damage against blockers too considering its a blunt weapon that doesn't bounce. for pvp, level your dex and put something like quickstep on it with a lightning infusion and you can do decent damage to your enemy's stamina plus some health damage and a bit of bleed buildup to add to the pressure. very useful as a backup weapon against shield huggers on dex builds that mainly use light, slashing weapons, and it can't be parried which leads to some funny moments where people spam their parry while you wail on them. would recommend, has got me out of some tight spots even if it's nothing too fancy.

                                                    As a backup weapon for dex builds, this thing does the job great. It doesn't need to be used all that often, but for any dex build encountering a new mine, it shreds through hardened enemies better than most options, since it won't bounce. Plus, you can assign your ash of choice to it. Maybe sometimes a weapon doesn't need to be more than that.

                                                      Infuse this with lightning and you will have a weapon that:

                                                      -deals the least resisted physical damage type that scales with dex
                                                      -also deals the least resisted elemental damage type that scales with dex
                                                      -does not bounce off of hardened enemies
                                                      -bypasses guarding enemies
                                                      -cannot be parried under normal circumstances
                                                      -can trigger the most powerful status effect (damage-wise)
                                                      -can be obtained as soon as the game starts
                                                      -has a pretty strong guard counter

                                                      Downsides:
                                                      -Short range
                                                      -Loses the unique AOW if you apply something else (not that spectacular tbh)

                                                      I dunno, seems kinda good to me.

                                                        This is my go-to right-hand weapon for my Arcanist mage build when I'm not using the Scavenger's Curved Sword. It's nowhere near as fast as the Scavenger's and doesn't proc bleed as often, but it deals ridiculous amounts of poise damage and absolutely shreds crystallians and heavily armored foes who are otherwise highly resistant to slashing.

                                                        Pair it with the Lion's Claw AoW and you can instantly stance break most small and medium-sized foes from a good distance away, then either land a critical hit or wail on them until the bleed procs. Knights that previously gave me huge amounts of trouble with their greatshields are now easy fodder for this thing.

                                                            Pretty solid as an early game weapon for a DEX ARC build, at least until you get the black whetstone. You can get it from the very beginning, you don't need that much of a stat investment (mainly the dex), has innate bleed, bypasses block, is pretty fast, and can be infused with AOW. Despite not having viable bleed AOW early, you have the option to apply poisonous mist to it, for double status effects and arcane scaling. Overall pretty solid weapon for pretty much and dex build, and it also works well with frost.

                                                            Downside: the range is small.

It's good for crowd control and a good weapon to try ashes of war. Tries it with faith. For the golden balls. Lol nothing meta but a good in the pocket weapon to annotate crystallizes for the strike damage

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

This one is easily half the length of what those guys have and I would love to see a larger "greatflail" version of this available for players.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

When that hemorrhage and frostbite proc at the same time, OH BABY. My Dex is at 50 so I always keep the Keen affinity on it for that A scaling, but mix and match with different AoW that grant weapon buffs to exploit enemy weaknesses (sacred blade, lightning slash, etc). OR throw some blood grease on it for good measure. I am an Int/Dex build and yes, I primarily run Moonveil, but every build needs a good strike weapon and this is it. I have a fully upgraded bastard star’s, but I almost always choose thing thing over it since it is so versatile and it hits harder than BS with a scholars armament buff anyways, especially when you factor in the bleed (also not a huge fan of the BS weapon art). Arguably the best one-handed Dex weapon in the game and very fun to use.

                                                                            • Anonymous

It seems to cover a lot of bases, strike vs armour, rocky enemies, bleed and frostbite vs cloth and fleshy enemies. You can chain jump attack to stun lock large enemies before going for a crit when it gets knocked down. Frost stomp to AoE swarms of rats, dogs, zombies and horseback R2 to multi attack dragons or other large outdoor bosses. It might not be flashy or go with your fashion souls but this thing puts in work.

                                                                              • Anonymous

Wild Strikes gives you an increase to poise while using the skill so you'll pretty much only get interrupted by bosses, but this thing shreds regardless. It's also great for thiose annoying rats and dogs as the ash has a lot or range and can hit multiple targets. Did I also mention it costs 2 FP to use? Yeah, highly recommend

This combo has carried me through so many encounters. You have to hit some enemies more than 2 times to enable the stunlock + critical status but holy crap is this weapon combo good. I also recommend equipping frost on this weapon (such as Hoarfrost Stomp) because the elemental damage + inherent bleed is a killer 1-2 punch.

As pointed out in some enraged comments below, you CAN NOT keep the Spinning Chain Ash of War while infusing (Heavy/Keen/Cold...) this and every flail with Spinning Chain. So you either have Spinning Chain and no infusion OR infusion and some other Ash of War. It does feel like a gross oversight, as Katanas have Unsheathe, and Unsheathe can only be used in Katanas. Hopefully, they fix this by either adding the option of selecting the standard Ash of War to infuse the weapon or adding a Spinning Chain to the game, only usable on Flails.

Just start over or...? I get there are more night's cavalry, but apparently they are 9/10's of the way through the game which kind of defeats the purpose.

Just keep charging the heavy attack and watch the status effects proc and their health bars disappear! Makes 'em literally weak in the knees ahahahahahahah!

                                                                                                                          • Amazing option to have for any dexterity/intellect build in areas that you can't use piece/slash due to shields or crystal enemies. I was using thrusting weapons with staff most of the game, but have since swapped to this as my primary because the stagger is so useful, yet quick and chainable too. May not scale as well as some of the later game flails, but you can use this for a very long while, so don't be shy about upgrading it

                                                                                                                              Overall one of the best tool to have on any Dex build

They have a great ambush attack that hits with both weapons and can be followed with a high aggression
