Twinblades are a type of Weapon in Elden Ring. Twinblades are difficult to wield, and they can be wielded with a single hand, but their true strength is enabled with dual-handed attacks. This weapon is for the player who likes spinning slash attacks that hit multiple targets at the same time.

Twinblades can be slotted with a number of Ashes of War, making it a very versatile weapon type. Experiment with them until you find the one you like.

 

NOTE: As of Patch 1.08, the speed of some attacks has been increased and the recovery time has been reduced. The poise damage has been reduced only on PVP.

      I slept on these things for way too long. Multi-hit attacks on a single weapon make them amazing both for Bleed Builds and buffs like Lightning Slash.

        • I actually think these are better than dual wielding katanas. Not only are they lighter, but most of their two handed light attacks deal either 150% or 200% status buildup, which is more than the 130% of powerstance light attacks. They do less raw damage per hit than powerstanced katanas but are much faster, i think they are at least as fast as curved swords.

          The best advantage is that they count as only one weapon so you need less stones to upgrade them compared to dual wielding, and weapon buffs affect both ends, which is huge if using flaming strike, lightning strike, sacred blade or bloodflame blade.

            Love the basic twinblade, very versatile two handed and imo more fun than katana for early game bleed build.

            • Anonymous

              It would be really cool if they added a twin blade that had kicks mixed in with the two-handed move set. Like the stone knights from DS2, those guys were awesome.

              • Anonymous

                these things with a status infusion are unfair, for their speed they inflict too much buildup. at 40 ARC rivers does 63 bleed per hit while blood twinned knight swords does 104. it does more bleed than bloody helice, bleed-infused curved swords, occult scavenger's, everything! 1H running R1 into spinning slash will just delete people

                • Anonymous

                  The Charge Attack is like the flail charge attack comically unpractical. Ludicrous wind up, no hyper armor and only the last hit does decent damage. If there is one attack in the game that needs hyper armor, it's the charge attack of Twinblades or make the charge up time much faster, because as it stands right now, the charge attack is objectivly unusable pve and pvp wise.

                  • Anonymous

                    I just love this weapon set. I play up close sword/shield so it pairs great. Bloody slash in right hand and swap between shield or Eleanora in left and I can dual, 2H or block as needed. So versatile. Props are so consistent or go occult for more damage or any scale you like and you will have fun. By end game you can restat and go mage or any other path you like but for PvE these are great. Only disappointment is variety. Completely understand why you can't dual these til mid game.

                      I really wish there’d be a few more twinblades available :( I was surprised to see the list is so short

                      • Anonymous

                        these things kick ass but you've gotta keep the range in mind. you may think it's long but your character's forward motion on each attack is very short so you end up not traveling as far as you would with other weapons and whiffing attacks when your enemy backs up a little. makes roll catching with r1s in pvp impossible if they roll backwards lol

                        • If you look at the Thumbnail in Fextra's twinblades vid, you'll notice the Twinblade of Abundance and Decay in the upper mid of the of the image, but it features neither in the video, nor on the main Twinblades page, as it's cut content. Hope we get to see it in the dlc

                            Do both Gargoyle blades have the same range? I'm asking this because I don't see two gargoyles on the visual above.

                            • Anonymous

                              these weapons are so weird when you think about it, they're better when two handed so strength is the obvious choice but they're more dex focused than anything else for obvious reasons, and the only pure physical damage one that's strength oriented has much lower range than it's dex counterparts. it's like you're punished for using them they way they're intended

                              • Anonymous

                                after using one-handed Twinblades (mostly Lightning Twinned Knights Sword and Keen or Blood Godskin Peeler) a lot in a sword and board context (with three heater shields to swap between for different skills), I gotta say the one-handed twinblade moveset really is the bees knees. R1 Spam is great on it, it feels like a bigger fancier version of longsword R1 spam. The first R1 comes out 2 frames slower than the longsword's but the following attacks' speed is extremely similar to Longsword's but with better damage and I think bigger hitboxes (especially with the Twinned Knight's which feels surprisingly reachy). And your running R1 becomes a quick stab.

                                The two-handed moveset is still better for sheer damage-dumping on big vulnerable targets, to be clear, but if you're just lashing out with quick hits and dodging then the one-hand moveset feels super nice. I'm getting a little sick of shields making me shield-brained (hiding behind my shield) so I'm trying to find something else to use in my off-hand (currently trying the pulley crossbow) but the centerpiece of my build remains one-handed twinblades because the balance of speed and damage and style feels so compelling to me right now. Also worth noting that the offhand chain is worse (slower) than the mainhand chain in spite of them looking very similar, which is unfortunate.

                                  Does 23 poise damage with the first hit in pvp with 2HR1, 2H Rolling R1 and 2H Runnung R1. Any weapon could poise though it.


                                  However, probably the best weapon for applying status effects in PvE, preferably bleed, since you can easily apply frost with freeze pots, so no need to use it on a weapon.


                                  Also the muti hit property it has is only useful to apply status effects since it does so little damage, that and fighting off crowds in PvE.

                                    If you're like me and you enjoy two-handing twinblades rather than powerstancing (either because you prefer it or because you also run spells in offhand,) you can use some interesting mixups by alternating one-handed and two-handed combat. The running attacks differ significantly when you're one-handing versus two-handing, and you get some unexpected reach out of it.

                                        This weapon class feels unfinished... theres so many weird quirks with it and not in the "this weapon class has unique specialties" way

                                            Can we address the fact that this weapon class still does significantly reduced damage and poise damage on the first swing of regular hit, meanwhile even other multi hit dedicated weapons such as claws, fists, Ornamental Straight Sword, Starscourge Greatsword do full damage on it essentially doubling damage output per single attack ... Same for dual wielding...
                                            Meanwhile the most twin sword can get is 60 damage on the first swing with practically no poise damage, especially while two handed...
                                            This is getting ridiculous at this point, at least the speed was improved...

                                              The added speed buff with this update is nice, but twinblades would really benefit from some added poise breaking damage when two-handing. Give players an incentive to play a different style other than dual-wielding in this weapon class.

                                                part of me feels bad invading dual twinblade users. they have 1 move, and that move works on 99.9% of pve, but is completely ineffective on players because of how easy it is to predict and space

                                                  Its weird how despite ds2 being rushed and unfinished, er has the same amouth of twinblades. Except thats not even true, er pretty much have 4, since gargoyle`s black blade is an abomination that should not exist and the only difference between twinblade and knights twinblade is its looks (yes, i know that they have slightly different AR, but thats not enough, especially then one is just weaker, making it obsolete). It seams that infamous B team is making Miyazaki look like he doesnt know that he is doing

                                                    I feel like im the only person here who actually uses twinblades as a twohanded weapon, the godskin peeler two handed is such a great moveset and is so underrated.

                                                      I've spent about 50 hours messing with these in PvE and I find this weapon class to be ridiculously versatile. Its fast enough to use against most bosses and its reach and moveset trivializes not only groups of trash mobs but also really hard-to-hit enemies like Black Knife Assassins. Think of these as the range and moveset of a colossal sword, but with the speed and damage of a straight sword. I find it to be the best of both worlds with few of the drawbacks of either.

                                                      Recommendations on use:
                                                      - Don't use a shield. Two hand or power stance. This is how you unlock full potential
                                                      - Generally don't target lock, except when 1v1ing a tough enemy
                                                      - Winged Insignia talisman! The talisman's buff applies on hit, not attack. So because of chain attacks, its pretty much a free 10% damage buff when using a twinblade
                                                      - Jumping R2 deals pierce damage on top of being a jumping attack. Pair with Spear Talisman to be even more broken.
                                                      - Charged R2 will do a spinning 4 hit attack which makes it beastly at applying status effects, poise breaking, and following up backstabs for absurd damage
                                                      - Crouch attack is crazy fast and has great range
                                                      - Impaling Thrust and Spinning Slash ashes pair fantastically. These are all the poise damage of charged R2 without the windup.

                                                      I get the sense people complaining about twiblades are either A) playing meta PVP or B) turned off immediately by its unusual moveset, and haven't spent the time to learn how to handle it. It will seem clunky at first. But play with it a 5 or 10 hours before you decide.

                                                        Am I the only one that thinks it’s weird how none of them deal slash damage? I feel like slash/pierce would be more appropriate for twinblades, since their move sets consists of spinning, slashing, and/or stabbing

                                                          As of patch 1.07 the dual twinblade jump attack spam setup for bleed is no longer optimal. I was using the Godskin Peeler at +23 alongside with the Twinned Knight Swords +20, both Blood infused, and the jumping L1 attack that hits 4 times no longer bleeds enemies instantly.

                                                          HOWEVER, this is a good thing, because at the same time they buffed other ways to proc bleed.
                                                          - Two-handing the GP procs bleed in two or three attacks now (not hits, two or three R1 attacks)
                                                          - The running GP R2 procs bleed (when two-handed)
                                                          - Blood Tax on usually bleeds enemies in one combo on any of these two twinblades, AND it heals you, AND it staggers most enemies.
                                                          - Bloody Slash got re-buffed and it deals more damage and bleed buildup now. Haven't tested it too much yet

                                                          I am very happy about this change, when I read in the patch notes that bleed buildup on dual weapons was nerfed I was sad since it was the first time I tried out a bleed build and it felt really powerful, but after playing around with it I realized it actually made the gameplay more fun, I no longer feel like using anything other than jumping L1s is me losing DPS.

                                                          Seppuku being nerfed is also a good thing for twinblades, now freeing up more AoW choices since you don't have to rebuff and heal every few minutes.

A weapon who’s main attribute being better twohanded is weaker than just using two separate ones…just, brilliant.

                                                                You know that first hit of one multi hit attack deals massively lower damage compared to a second one to balance out twinblades? Meanwhile all dual wilded light weapons deal their full damage on the first hit essentially doubling their ar while losing none of their speed... wtf is this logic????

                                                                    • Anonymous

You find the default Twinblade within 5 minutes of starting the game, and then you find three more right next to each other in Altus Plateau, 50 hours of gameplay later. Obviously you can just run there on future playthroughs, but it sure is odd

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

You can't really spam attacks when two handing it, you'll be easily punished by a counter attack in both PvE and PvP.

                                                                            They don't generate as much stagger as greatswords & you'll have to play around enemy attacks a bit more, which keeps combat fresh. The chain attacks go through stamina surprisingly quickly.

                                                                            This is a pretty fun weapon class if you're looking to keep things interesting on a new character or NG+. You need to stay fairly close to the enemy, be wary of leaving counter attacking opportunities, and also watch your stamina usage.

                                                                            The first hit out of a standard, two-handed R1 attack does very low damage. You need to change your movements and attack timings a bit to help you connect the more damaging second swing of your attacks.

                                                                            • Anonymous

I dual wield base twinblade with Bloody Thrust and Godskin Peeler with Bloodhound step and poison and it tears through things, especially the dual wield jump attack since it's a two part attack that comes out almost instantly with the first part

                                                                              • Anonymous

I noted that the Gargoyle's twinblade feels like it attacks slower than the others (both the standard one and the black one), but when in the off-hand and dual wielded with another twinblade (not a gargoyle's twinblade) it attacks at the normal dual wield speed. I'd highly recommend this combo or an Eleonora's poleblade combo if there's the need for bleed.

                                                                                • Anonymous

Also, try it with Rotten wing talisman and axe talisman as well as the Flask of Physic tears with similar effects. While buffed from both "consecutive attacks" effects, a fully charged R2 will do upwards of 3000 damage as well as causing insane poise damage. Less to players, of course.

With the multihit nature of the weapon's attacks, your opponent can mistime a parry for the first hit, receive damage, and still have parry frames active to intercept the second. I learned this the hard way on a buckler user, so I'm sure with things like golden parry it's even worse.

                                                                                            • Anonymous

You'll only have access to the basic twinblade for the longest time, as the second one you can get is in Nokron, and by that point most players will have done Limgrave, Liurnia and Caelid, along with some side areas, which is a huge amount of content. Then once you get to Altus, the game just gives you 3 new twinblades back to back since they're all so close to each other. Like, the twinned knight twinblade is just sitting there as regular loot, why not move it to Liurnia or something? Other weapon types seem fairly well spread out, so it makes no sense to me.
