Elden Ring Red-Feathered Branchsword Notes & Tips

  • Sell Value: runes currency elden ring wiki guide 18 500
  • Stacks with other attack power boosts.
  • There are a few ways to intentionally activate this talisman:
    • Find some mobs and let them hit you. This doesn't require any special equipment or FP, but does depend on there being mobs nearby that aren't too threatening.
    • Bloody Slash: This Ash of War is obtainable early from Fort Haight and deals you 50 + (5% of max HP) damage each time it's used. Five activations are enough to bring a character with 10 Vigor below 20% HP.
    • Night Maiden's Mist: This spell can also be obtained relatively early from Gowry and damages the player as long as they stand in the mist. It requires 14 Intelligence to use, but it costs less FP than Bloody Slash to get below 20% HP.
  • Works well with the Blue-Feathered Branchsword and Twinbird Kite Shield as they all provide benefits at or below 20% HP.
  • Similar to the Red Tearstone Ring from Souls titles.

      You can find this item in valley of the drake. Run past the drakes on the narrow bridge and there is a ladder on the right

        I like that it looks like the Morion blade from Dark Souls 3 which had the same effect of increase attack power when at low hp

          Kind of useless was better in the previous series but 20% at 20% hp? At 20% hp you are dead in 1 maximum 2 hits and the 20% dmg is not worth it wasting a slot for that

            Question, what is considered low HP, like what percentage does my HP need to be in order for the talisman to activate? I also think that it would be nice if you guys put these percentages out here for the people that don't want to go out and do their own testing and stuff.

            • Anonymous

              Worth adding what counts as low HP level, the comments here say <20%, but it's not stated in this wiki article.

                Never really used this type of effect in souls games of past but just how this talisman looks caught my eye and how I always get smacked hard running around in light armor this really is like icing on the cake for me. Just might be unable to ever unequip this. Literally has increased my clutch moments by 20% as well !!

                  Guys complaining about it not being as strong as Dark Souls 1 Red Tearstone Ring or just new players underestimating a percent boost across the board. Ds1 had 2 ring slots. Elden Ring has 4 talisman slots. Take this as an example: a magic build stacking talismans for dmg, red feathered branch sword for 20%, magic scorpion charm for 12%, Graven mass talisman for 8%, graven school talisman for 4%. I'm not sure if it's additive or multiplicative with this specific layout but that would be an additive 44% extra damage. Not including armor sets that also boost specific damage sources, staves that boost specific spells, passive damage buff spells and incantations, weapon arts that provide passive buffs across all damage, or a different talisman setup that could boost in different ways like godefroy icon that boosts charged spells for 15%. Or anything else I can't think of or remember. People are 1 shotting bosses.

                  It's strong.

                  Do you want people to have 50% extra damage and 3 more slots to stack more? With even more sources to stack damage beyond those 4 slots?

                  I had a glass cannon build in demons souls where you could accomplish if I remember right 200% damage with a ring and an offhanded passive buff sword, the most people could accomplish is receiving 2 hits most were 1 shot and that was merely with a falchion. Imagine a great weapon or if I stacked the magic buffing ring on top of it or if I twinked? Of course I would be 1 shot at low health too but I usually decided when I would go in for an attack with my quick weapon.

                    Dunno about you all, but personally I found this thing very useful. Saved me countless times by helping me oneshot my opponent. People get cocky when you are low hp all the time. If you play it right, you have the advantage.

                      I don't know why this is listed as increasing attack and defense.

                      The description states it only increases attack and in the character sheet it shows no increase in defense.

                      • Anonymous

                        Only 20%. Worthless. Why bother with this crap when you can use the Ritual Sword Talisman and get 10% at full health? You're putting yourself at a permanent danger of getting one-hit-killed and for what, a meager 10% more?

                          The real question if there's a Weapon that "raises attack power when HP is low" like the "Morion Blade" in Demon's Souls & Dark Souls 3. I found A "Death Ritual Spear" that looks kind of like the talisman, and by extension the Morion Blade but the description doesn't specify such a boost...

                            No hit runs in this game are gonna take a long fu*king time seeing as how most bosses just use AOE magic spells.

                                This is the red tearstone ring, boosts damage when health is low. Not sure of exact % but likely 20% or less. Drops off one of the Deathbirds.

                                  At night, kill Deathbird north of the Scenic Lake grace site in the Liurnia of the Lakes. Start at the grace, run north to a giant rock with a lot of shiny pebbles. Impossible to miss.
