Reduvia is a Dagger in Elden Ring. The Reduvia scales with Strength, Dexterity, and Arcane. It is one of the first weapons the player can acquire that scales with Arcane and is exceptional at inflicting Blood Loss on targets.

 

Jagged dagger with a distinctive curled blade.
Carried by the noble servants of the Lord of Blood.

This dagger rips the flesh as it enters, inflicting blood loss with sickening efficacy. A proud testament to the success of its vicious design, this weapon is perpetually coated in blood.

      I'm pretty sure the only way to nerf this weapon is to remove it from the game (Not saying it should be remove, just stating that it is fantastic). I went up against a Godskin duo in ng+2 with 60 arc and 50 dex with lord of blood's favor, white mask, and rotten sword insignia, and they went down unbelievably fast. I even tried it early game against O'Neil with 24 arc and 18 dex with the white mask and winged sword insignia, this still produced irrefutable results Truly the unnerfable weapon.

        if im not mistaken the AoW on this gets extended by Arrow's Reach Talisman, Ive noticed the range is slightly enhanced when using them in conjunction. Can anyone else help confirm this?

          Coming from DS3 and BB I love - parrying and proccing bleed. I have been using this with offhand buckler and I am thinking about doing another playthrough but just can't decide for any different weapon. This being a dagger with high critical motion, high bleed and inbuilt ranged attack make it seem unreplacable for me. I want to have more variety but feel unable to give it up.

            Great little knife. What a honey. You can hammer nails with her all day and come home, she'll still cut dead center.

              If you're playing a bandit you can get this straight out of the gate without killing anything. Start the usual run to get torrent (and anything else you normally pickup along the way, like the map), and run up the steam north of the lake. After the NPC spawns, dodge/fight for twenty seconds or so until Yura comes to the rescue. He can solo the NPC if needed. Congrats, you now have 2 bleed daggers to get you going.

                The weapon skill does ~2x bleed buildup of the weapon, both ranged and melee parts, so if it's used in melee it will do 4x bleed.

                  As a low level invader, Reduvia users are a lot scarier than any overleveled phantoms with end-game weapons. Play at extreme caution if facing one, they will melt you in seconds.

                    The single greatest dagger in the game with some of it not the highest AR early and late game. Even early it’s doing as good with dex then a blood great knife and better with arcane then an occult one with greater max scaling and bleed then each in there own respective category. Combine that with an excellent Ashe of war and it’s clear to see why they only give you one per cycle

                        The skill is illegal version of Blood Blade, Reduvia Blood Blade skill damage scale with str(very weak), dex & arc, while normal Blood Blade just arc, it doesn't cost hp like normal Blood Blade but it cost 3 more fp, spam it, it's designed to be spammed.

                          Some players with valid critiques: "This knife is OP early game, and maintains a portion of this power through out the game. Some balance checks should be done that allow the weapon to be fun, but not overwhelming."

                          Meanwhile me: "Hee hoo, funny blood knife go brrrrrr!" 'proceeds to spam L2 at a wall for the splash sound'

                            Man I love this weapon so much I did a playthrough Reduvia only. Needless to say it was easy (seamless co-op), naked, underleveled, it was so fun. Until radagon...but that's a story for another day.

                                def the most practical and strong bleed weapon. rob and mohg spear both offset their heavy damage and bleed buildup with a long animation, but this thing is fast, ranged, and bleeds very fast. wouldn't even be mad nor surprised if it gets a nerf

                                  At 60 Arcane, outperforms Blood Affinity daggers in both damage AND bleed.

                                  The fact this thing is available in Limgrave as a reward for one stupid little NPC invasion is positively criminal.

                                    I hate when I invade early game and one of the squad of opponents has one of these. Just spsm this from distance while others attack. It's pretty impossible to win or very hard at the least. Now one on one .easy to dodge. Imho .

                                      dual wield this in NG+ with high arcane and dexterity plus whatever more damage per hit you do in succession talisman and let this thing shred as you just press L1, i managed to kill mohg with the shackle and he didnt even get the chance to change phases, at 80 arcane this thing does 94 bleed damage per hit and when you can spam a button for a 9 hit combo this thing is absolutely criminal because its not even like it does negligable physical damage, not accounting this strat for pvp ofcourse but even in pve you can blend bosses provided you have the stuff for it.

                                        The fact that you can win fights just by carelessly spamming L2 and procing bleed in 2 phantom hits in pvp only shows how unbalanced this weapon is. They should increase base damage and lower the bleed build up, maybe even increase FP consumption so people have to actually start using their brains and play with other buttons.

                                          I used this off hand with a Keen Misericorde in my right hand. The powerstance moveset was really favorable for Reduvia in off-hand. Misericorde is better in main hand anyway due to the crit scaling. I buffed Misericorde with Bloodflame Blade and used Bloody Slash for a longer range melee attack that packs a punch. Great build for shredding everything for an Arcane Dex Bandit starter who likes to powerstance daggers or use an off-hand dagger with a heavier weapon.

                                              I had an absolute blast powerstancing this with a poison infused great knife, it was excellent at applying bleed and poison at high arcane levels which turns the build into a monster with crag blade on the great knife and the exultation talismans.

                                              The ash of war does ****ing bonkers damage too and it was my absolute favorite weapon to farm weapons off of enemies along with mohg's sacred spear.

                                                    this is probably the fastest weapon to inflict bloodloss on opponents. The blade itelf stacks with the blood projectile, doubling the bleeding effectiveness

                                                      Reduvia has 30 bleed build up at least at the date of April, 21, 2023. Hopefully this will be edited or have a explanation I missed within the wiki page already

                                                        The name "Reduvia" probably references Reduviid bugs - otherwise known as assassin bugs. Most are predatory and eat other insects but some assassin bugs feed on blood. The blood-feeding bugs are called kissing bugs on account of their preference for soft kiss near the eyes and lips. It's an apt name for a weapon used by blood crazed assassins.

                                                          Worth noting that according to the spreadsheet, the Blood Blade projectile does Standard damage. this uh could potentially be useful if you're doing a full on Reduvia + Bloody Helice run and start to feel bad about your weapons' slash/pierce damage vs certain enemies. Look, you have one way to deal Standard damage! For only 6 FP! OK I haven't tried it but I'm pretty sure there's no way it's actually cost efficient for killing imps/skeletons/gargoyles, so the fact that it does Standard damage is mostly just trivia I'm sure.

                                                            Judging by this comment section, there are a lot of people who haven't assessed this weapon properly at all, within the context of an ARC/DEX build. "It's a dagger, it's short, it deals low damage and poise damage, blah blah blah." As if you're going to spend a whole run using just one weapon. As if any arcane build wouldn't instantly become better with this weapon in its arsenal. As if some enemies being immune to bleed even matters to an arcane build with access to Occult weapons and incantations. Or, in the opposite direction, "this weapon is broken, deals huge bleed damage, spammable ash of war, rivers of blood 2.0." No, it's a weapon balanced by low base damage but good scaling and the ability to inflict bleed. Against applicable enemies, it will be good. Against other enemies, use something else.

                                                              Alright I wasn't sure at first but not I'm convinced reduvia is so good. I recently built my arcane bleed build and needed a strong secondary weapon to compliment morgots curved greatsword and bleed spells. There are a lot of mixup you can do with reduvia. First you can cast fleshflies and sprint towards your enemy. Once you are within range you can start spamming the weapon art and most likely the person you are dueling is dodge rolling sideways to avoid the flies. Chances are your going to catch them atleast once with the weapon art and a little bit from the flies to proc bleed. Next is casting morgots weapon art which even if you miss the lingering blood explosions usually keep the enemy at a cautious medium range then bust out reduvia for some cheeky weapon art spam they usually don't expect range attacks right after morgots weapon art. My personal favorite is when people start to rush you you cast blood talons which creates a defensive blood explosion in front of you. 2 things will happen they will either get stunned and combos into reduvia weapon art. Or they will roll past you in hopes of doing a rolling attack in which case keep spamming the weapon art. It comes out usually faster than anything the enemy at close range can dish out and has great poise damage meaning even heavy armor builds will be stunned. Usually they get greedy and after 2 or 3 failed trades they die.

                                                              TLDR version:
                                                              -Reduvia is goated
                                                              -Great mixup potential on bleed builds
                                                              -Cheap fp cost, medium range, fast af, and great poise damage.

                                                                The bleed buildup on this weapons WA is ridiculous. The range it gives to the dagger is great and if mixed in with other attacks can very quickly bleed an opponent. For poise monsters that manage to get close I would recommend pulling out a weapon with higher poise damage (I recommend either mogh spear or occult star fists). Alternatively you can try to blender them with dual daggers if their weapon does low poise damage.

                                                                • i started a bleed build to do another platinum trophy run. got this weapon at the very start, and spent 2 hours unlocking the full map, getting all seeds and goblets readily available, and getting the 9 somber smithing stones. after that, margit, godrick, radagan, renalla, godskin noble, ancestor spirit, loretta, leonin, godfrey, morgott, niall, were all easy claps even with meager dex/arc investment. a +9 reduvia to play standard ng is devastatingly destructive, and easily carried me to firegiant in 10 hours of gameplay.

By contrast, Reduvia is filled with little grooves that hold onto your opponent's blood and let you throw it back at them. It's like a Sham-Wow for body fluids...

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

Every single catacomb automatically becomes hell, imps will take about 8-9 hits to die with it, and we all know the game loves to spam those in groups of 3-5. It absolutely melts everything in Limgrave when you get it and immediately +2 it, but after that you won't get a single +3 upgrade stone till the end of Liurnia (cause progression rewards in Elden Ring are just terrible) turning the entire Weeping Peninsula and most of Liurnia into an R1 spam contest.
                                                                              Once you reach altus and you start getting loot that are not actually garbage bin filler, the weapon becomes good against things vulnerable to bleed though, so at least there's that. But early game, it's basically Drake Sword 5.0, dropoff hits super hard after a good start.

                                                                              • This thing needs a nerf to its aow. Now that I have encountered this thing a lot in pvp it feels very cheap to get obliterated in seconds because of constant aow spam. But this is a problem in general with Elden Ring. Not only with this weapon. Strategic fights where people actually use their weapons are a rotten relic of the past. Now duels and especially invasions come down to who can spam their aow faster and this is neither engaging nor fun. Either you dodge a million times until your opponent finally runs out of fp or you have the superior spammable aow. It's actually pretty sad imo.

                                                                                • Anonymous

Oh and I was talking about the melee, the ranged portion needs a hard nerf too.

Like it's so off-putting to poise through a straight sword or thrusting sword light and then get staggered by this dagger in the same arena fight.

Super early game, very quick bleed proc, yes the range is short but more than compensated by the fact that it shoots frickin blood at enemies

If you're looking for raw bleed, powerstanced Blood Daggers are the way to go, although Reduvia is still perfectly viable as a weapon.
