Wgt. 2 passive effects elden ring wiki guide 18Passive - Causes blood loss buildup (39)

Varré's Bouquet is a Hammer in Elden Ring. The Varré's Bouquet scales primarily with Strength, Dexterity and Arcane and is a good Weapon for blood loss buildup. 

 

A steel mace resembling a charming bouquet of roses. Each petal has a sharpened edge, leaving the roses perpetually colored with blood.

This weapon reflects White Mask Varré's manner of speech rather well, enticing in its splendor, but full of deadly consequence.

  • Varré's Bouquet can be upgraded by using Somber Smithing Stones
  • Can be buffed

      +0 Mantis Blade has 1 point more in physical damage than a +10 Varres Bouqet. 112 for +10 Bouqet, 113 for +0 Mantis Blade. well done FromSoft. it looks so cool and its so useless.

        This is not necessarily a bad weapon if you buff it with frost. Basically you get some nice burst damage but also both frost and bleed can be proc'd during the weapon art, which will break your opponents stance multiple times. If you want to get really spicy, cast fire's deadly sins with it and you'll instantly reset your opponents frost status, allowing you to continuously proc it with bleed. Lastly, since frost and bleed procs always break your opponents stance, you don't actually have to two hand the hammer (which still has a horrible moveset), instead you can just keep it one handed, with a staff or incantation seal in your other hand... This setup is really good in 1v1 and invasions, but because you rely on two buffs, it's really hard to pull off in free for all matches, or team fights.

          Getting bored on my arcane build. Un upgraded this thing currently has. 100 blood loss. I’m thinking of picking up another hammer to give it blood affinity. I’m interested to see powerstance bleed procs along with spamming bouquet’s AOW. Heck, even placing a better blood AOW on the other hammer and have boquet in the off hand. Though I do not expect dagger powerstance magic, I will have a little fun for a few days. And hey this hammer is pretty. Remember +9 is easy once you’ve progressed far enough.

          • I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think people are underestimating this weapon because of its low damage. PVP aside, I think this is a pretty decent weapon in PVE. My current stats are 50 arcane and I got about 125 bleed buildup stat. I also add blood flame blade for extra bleed and damage (+Varre cosplay lmao). With all this combined, the cleanrot knight outside of the prayer room gets unlocked with its AOW. Enemies get a bit of hyper armor when they're stunned, but the bleed breaks through the hyper armor. Basically, just spam the AOW. Also, a single cast of AOW guarantees 2 procs of bleed, even though on the second proc the enemy would have increased resistance. If you want a guaranteed bleed, this weapon is a go-to. The damage is still terrible though, but it's not the worst weapon in the game (Those are for bows lmao).

                Got invaded by a guy powerstancing this. He started attacking me & i felt bad for him so i just seppukued myself over & over. Even with his help it took a long time to die. I cant imagine the pain he must have suffered before that point.

                • Anonymous

                  The reason for the low damage is that the bleed effect it has is special. Almost double the normal bleed, but even with this it is a lousy weapon. With so little damage it is useless against enemies immune to bleeding.

                          Where is everyone getting the idea that this is just a regular bouquet of flowers? It quite literally says in it's description that it's a steel mace and the petals have sharpened edges.

                            Hilariously bad. Even with Bloodflame or a Blood Grease the base damage is still so low that the bleed procs don’t make up for it. It’s also the second shortest hammer in the game, next to the Nox Hammer which actually is useful.

                              I was somehow convinced this is an actual weapon in the shape of a bouquet of flowers, like perhaps a steel mace with flower ornamentation. But no, it's just Varre's flowers. Ok...

                                        I think this weapon is trash as kind of a dunk on Varre, cuz he is so damn smug.

                                        You get a better reward for following his quest line just by getting to access Moghwyn so early for all that furtive rune farming.

                                        This weapon just looks cool, but is ultimately feeble, and that is okay.

                                            Like I know this weapon sucks but God damn can't I at least get it without going online From!?

                                                It should be noted this weapon cannot be optained if you are offline always. You need online access to get it.

                                                  I finally went and got this weapon for my pve character I'm working on, my plan is to +10/25 everything in the game.

                                                  I got this so I wanted to see if its as bad as people make it out to be.

                                                  On a level 400 character, upgraded and buffed with bloodflame it does a whooping 200dmg per r1.

                                                  My headcannon is that it was meant to be used as a key weapon to romance several npcs across the lands between. In short 10/10 one of the greatest weapons.

                                                    This would make for a fun challenge run weapon. Terrible damage so you rely on the bleed, which in turn forces you to play aggressively and get as many hits off as quickly as you can.

                                                      Why in god's name does this have Blood Tax as the AOW? They could've easily gave it some petal storm that causes bleed build up or something akin. It's the Harp Bow all over again :/

                                                        Terrible, thats it, no other way to describe it, its damage is abysmal, it has short range which makes the AOW utterly useless, and its a hammer which are pretty mediocre weapons, and the dual moveset is god awful.

                                                        Other than a flat buff to its dmg, it also needs a new AOW, cause Blood Tax is only usable on longer weapons, a Blood Mist would be fitting, like the ones from the Putrid Corpses, its a bunch of flowers, so the mist would be like pollen or something idk.

                                                        • Hello, i try today the blood greases with this and it behaves strangely. with the innate bleed the weapon has + greases i should proc bleed in One or 2 hit max just like a weapon with seppuku and that's not the case at all.
                                                          I wouldn't be surprised if the Bleed grease overright the innate bleed for some reason. Need some testing.

                                                            It feels like it should have additional fire damage just like the other blood arcane weapons: rob and eleonora's poleblade. Hope they add it because hammers overall suck and this one doesn't even have damage.

                                                              Viable only if you're using greases - when a weapon with arcane scaling is applied a status grease that scales with Arcane (bleed, poison, sleep) the grease effect scales.

                                                              Yes, this can be buffed with Bloodflame but it's a poor candidate for it since Bloodflame's bleed tick is static. Use the grease.

                                                                    • Anonymous

The optimal setup is Fire's Deadly Sin with a seppuku weapon (the heavier - the better, because you get higher bleed buildup from a bleed infusion), and burred bolts with the pulley crossbow. Now, if for whatever reason you want to do this combo before you reach the Mountaintops, or if you don't want to take any damage while doing the combo, or you think, as I do, that holding a flaming bouquet of roses while hipfiring a crossbow looks cool as hell, then you can use varre's bouquet with bloodflame blade, because the base bleed buildup on it is higher than any other buffable weapon (I think). Tested this on a troll and it roughly has the same performance as a seppuku blood claymore in the main hand, with only 35 arcane.

                                                                      To summarize, this doesn't make the weapon good, but it's the best, most optimal setup you can possibly give it. Also much more fashionable than stabbing yourself in the stomach (also the buff animation is shorter and you can move while buffing).

                                                                      • Can someone help explain to me how to get this, because i've gotten to where you can invade him, but the invasion sign just isn't there. I haven't actually done his quest, and went there through the snow-field. Is there a way to get it without doing the invasions? I killed all the nameless white masks already as well. Only one i haven't killed is mohg, for obvious reasons.

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

You can use Blood grease on it or even add Hemorrhage to it, and it swings fast. Insane Hemorrhage proc speed to it. If you can get a 2nd to Power Stance with, its the fastest killing weapons in the game, hands down. It can kill Omens and bosses in well under 30 seconds or less.

                                                                                    • This is the worst weapon in the game hands down, however bloodflame blade and many other scaling utility/heal spells are currently bugged and doesn't scale with anything other than faith, in this case arcane with the dragon communion seal. Maybe when they fix that bug it could be playable.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

That would give it some flare.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

The pages for Morgott's Cursed Sword, Reduvia, Clinging Bone, Albinauric Staff, Marias Executioner's Sword, Bloody Helice, and Dragon Communion Seal all say they can be buffed by magic or boosted by consumables, and among those Morgott's Cursed Sword, Reduvia, and Bloody Helice all apply innate bleed.

Even being a pretty light mace based on the weight and strength req, I still think it’s pretty dissatisfying that it deals less damage than a basic dagger for only a little more bleed than status quo for bleed weapons, especially when you can trade damage for bleed with a simple bleed infusion, and still do more, and this is compounded by the fact you can get the ash of war for the same weapon art as this in the same area, without having to do any quest. I get that it’s also buffable, especially notable with bloodflame blade, but even then, that requires an entirely separate spell with its own fp usage, needs a catalyst, etc. and I don’t think that really makes up for it in the end. All in all, it feels like this could’ve been a much better weapon, and it’s a damn shame considering how unique it’s design is.

I got there using the way gate in the consecrated snowfield. Does anyone know if I can still get the weapon without doing the full Varre quest?

                                                                                                                • Anonymous

Doesn't have anywhere near enough bleed buildup to make up for it's pathetic damage. Reduvia has roughly 40 less buildup but is faster, deals more damage, and can double as a spammable ranged spell that also builds crazy bleed.
