Sword of Milos is a Greatsword in Elden Ring. The Sword of Milos scales primarily with Strength and Dexterity and is a good Weapon for casters because of its ability to restore FP. 

 

Sinister greatsword fashioned from a giant's backbone.
Metes out wounds like a lopsided saw-blade, and restores some FP upon defeating an enemy.

Milos was undersized for a giant, and was viewed as sullied and terribly grotesque.

 

Where to Find Sword of Milos in Elden Ring

The Sword of Milos weapon can be found at the following location:

  • Dropped by killing Dung Eater in the Subterranean Shunning-Grounds if you choose to kill him here.
  • Dropped by Dung Eater (NPC Invader) in the Capital Outskirts moat. He can be found in this location after releasing his corporeal body from his cell in the Subterranean Shunning-Grounds and then reading his message at the Roundtable Hold. [Map Link]
    • If the sword is dropped and lost (i.e. if the Tarnished is killed by the giant death crab before picking it up) it can still be acquired by killing Dung Eater's corporeal body in the Sewer Gaol (where he will now be tied to a chair), he will not drop the sword if you complete his questline.

      From design it looks like Dung took a Lordsworn straight sword and pushed it through every single vertebrae of that poor "giant" from bottom to neck area since you can see remains of ribs on the end. I wonder how he made those bones calcificate together in one solid piece and how is it attached to guards because it doesn't look like pelvis.. Maybe I shouldn't think about it this deepely.. Anyway it fits nicely with Royal Remain set and Clinging bone. shame you can't change aow since it's just a Bragars roar with debuff you can do with Greyols roar..

        Its very weird to have a weapon that incidentally shares the same name of you while having the backstory of being carved out of a grotesque and sullied giant

          Milos really was terribly short for a giant. Like, this is his entire spine and it's not even the longest greatsword.

            "Restores 5 FP whenever you kill an Enemy"

            Discus of Light= 3 FP
            Faith Mask
            Sacred Scorpion, Ritual Sword, Flocks Canvas, whatever Marika's Soreseal is good.
            Buff using Golden Epitaphs Litany and Ash: Sacred Order(Erdsteel Dagger)
            Equip this and +10 Golden Order Seal. Silly damage with good stats. Your go to spell is essentially free and actually gains you fp with each use.
            * The FP is restored regardless of whether or not you have the skill to actually use the sword.

              This weapon sadly is underperforming compared to standard bleed infusions at what should be its special niche, The buff/debuff should last a minute like braggarts roar/other power shreds and the +5 virtual strength should of just been +5 strength. If the weapon was balanced like so it would of had situational use in co-op for level progress/bossing but in it's current setup 30 FP for a 15% reduced damage negation debuff is just awful compared to other power shreds, a flamberge which u can put any AoW on is much better then the Dung Eater's unique weapon. On another note in same patch they buffed this they made the Winged Greathorn, which is another co-op based power shred weapon that increases there damage taken by 15% last a whole minute with a FP cost of 12 which is actually good, this is another classic case of from shocking design decisions at work.

                Just finished NG+ and, like NG, the Deathblight Crab caught us both. So can I even say I actually defeated him? This time the crab was so fast Dung Eater couldn't even finish his script.

                  I wish the weapon art only altered the 2 handed r2 like braggarts roar, and keeping the uppercut r2 when one handed

                  • Does this weapon skill (Shriek of Milos) act as a debuff aura that moves with your character or is this a stationary AOE debuff that only affects enemies within range?

                    • Anonymous

                      Holy crap this thing is good. Debuffs your enemies, buffs your attack, restores FP on kills, inflicts bleed on top of having a three/four-hit heavy combo when self-buffed... From gave this thing hella love.

                        After his spine was fashioned into a sword, he went on to direct several critically acclaimed films, including One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975), Hair (1979), Ragtime (1981) and Amadeus (1984).

                          I like how this weapon, like the turtle shield, has a design that suits wearing it on your back for the passive effect. It's a spine! It's on your back! It makes some sense. No comment on actually using the weapon (I'm sure it's very fun with that Skill on it) but it's basically the best source of FP recovery in the game aside from those star shard things that are limited in supply. It refunds a whole bloodhound step! Or even 1.66 Discuses of Light. Or a swift glintstone shard. Obviously it also just "reduces" the cost of larger spells/skills (assuming they kill), and also obviously its relevance varies depending how many easy kills there are in wherever you are. Currently I'm using it on a character who only spends FP on BH Step and Bestial Vitality, and carries very few blue flasks and therefore appreciates the FP resupply.

                            This combined with the sacrificial axe or great stars + takers cameo and/or ancestral spirits horn and maybe the royal remains set make excellent loadouts for exploring long dungeons if you're afraid of running out of flasks. Passive HP/FP restoration is never a bad thing in PVE.

                              Does the passive trigger when killing a skeleton once?
                              Or do you need to properly kill it when it is respwaning to get the fp?

                                Made a pretty crazy double greatsword build with this and a Cold Flamberge (127 frost buildup 50 bleed with 52 int), I use a golden vow dagger, flame grant me strength, Dex boost flask, and rotten winged sword talisman + hand of melania + Lord of Blood's exultation, after a few swings and a bleed proc my AR is like 1300ish on milos and 1200ish on the flamberge, with bleed and frostbite procs and all that greatsword stagger, its totally broken in PVE (not to mention the lowered enemy resistance which isnt reflected in the AR numbers.

                                  Why can you infuse bloodhound fang with bloodflame, grease etc but not this weapon? They’re almost identical except this is a greatsword and bloodhound is a curved greatsword. And bloodhound just has higher AR, almost making this thing obsolete

                                    The Ash of War on this seems bugged possibly? Physical damage gets boosted when attacking an affected enemy but elemental damage actually seems to decrease? Tested multiple times and my fire incantations did less damage with the Shriek applied than without. Seems almost like it's giving the enemy elemental resistance rather than lowering it.

                                      This is def a solid weapon. Does decent damage when properly leveled up and the drip feed of FP can make things like legacy dungeons, catacombs, caves or just exploration a lot easier to trudge through for magic users. If you manage to hit a target with the debuff, that plus your damage buff makes this thing hit kinda hard, and the charged R2 will stack a bleed and chew through poise on larger targets. Can def break stance with two consecutive buffed R2s. Very solid general weapon choice.

                                        At high enough attributes this eventually becomes the highest pure physical AR greatsword. R2s seem to do drastically reduced poise damage; two consecutive full charge R2s will poise break a Leyndell Gladiator with a knights greatsword, banished knight greatsword, or lordsworn's, but not Milos. R1s and jump attacks seem consistent with other greatswords in this regard however.

                                            The FP restoration seems to stack with the ancestral spirit horn. Nice alternative to the cerulean dagger.

                                              • If only the R2 was just a tad faster could it be effective in PvP. I've used this for a while now, and it just doesn't come out fast enough to compensate how short ranged the attack is. That being said, every R2 for greatswords is very low-tier (besides claymore).

                                                  This is amazing for PVE on pure caster builds, you can just wear it on your back, two-hand your staff/catalyst, and get the FP per kill effect. You don't need to meet stat requirements and it stacks with Ancestral Spirit Horn.

Does anyone know if the passive HP/FP regens from each weapon work no matter which of the weapons gets the final blow? Is the regen ability like the damage boosts on staves where as long as its actively equipped you will get the benefit?

                                                      It’s more likely that dung eater is milos. Like how Radagon has giants blood and is part giant/ a small giant, though handsome. ( according to giants Red brain whip, “Every giant is red of hair, and Radagon was said to have despised his own red locks. Perhaps that was a curse of their kind.” Milos was undersized and ugly… resembles dungeater… then the skill, shriek of milos, which is the shout of dung eater. Also people have removed dung eaters helmet and it reveals an ugly face with red hair…

                                                        Pretty effed up description. Milos was another stigmatized victim of society for being smaller and weaker but somehow was brutally killed and had his spine used to decorate a once fancy sword. Suits the Dung Eater to sadistically wield it, it's glamorous to defeat giants but he likely picked the weakest one and butchered his body to use as a prized weapon.

When I gave him his last seedbed curse and reloaded for the rune and armor, I got the sword at the same time. A recent change?

Int spell casters, AoW spammers, you name it, can benefit from just having this on their back. But it really shines when paired with another greatsword for powerstancing jump L1ing. Keep in mind the weapon art on this debuffs enemies drastically, increase your damage and status infliction against said enemies. Great on Flamberge occ bleed builds, or Blasphemous Blade builds. 5/10 on its own. 10/10 as a utility secondary.

                                                                                    I think the crab actually killed the Dung Eater in my game with Deathblight because I saw him being thorned to death. Is it possible for NPC invader to get killed by enemies in our world? because that’d be funny.

                                                                                      Trying to use this in medium armor or lower will feel pretty terrible. The moveset, specifically the buffed and unbuffed R2s, benefit a lot from poise and trading hits. When used in its' element, the damage is deceptively vicious and can cut through things surprisingly swiftly. Often feeling as if it is a weapon class larger or an upgrade level higher.

Apparently it only works on friendlies. Could be good for evil blue shenanigans
