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.

      Besides WHOOPING lol not sure why someone needed to copy that from a comment a few down, the upgrade chart is right there and you don't add anecdotes to a wiki

        Golly I love playing on Playstation where I need to pay at least 10 dollars to play online for one game and for one month despite already paying for my own internet anyways.

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

          This weapon is undoubtedly terrible, but it is pretty funny beating up your enemies with a literal bouquet of roses

            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.

                • Anonymous

                  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 :/

                  • Anonymous

                    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.

                      • Anonymous

                        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.

                        • Anonymous

                          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.

                            Ran it at 125 with blood grease. Bleed went off every three hits in pvp but the damage was 28 per swing! I managed a 50% win rate. Trash.

                              anyone else find it odd that the hammer is a dex weapon? also if it did fire damage, it could be the strength counterpart to Rivers and Eleonora's

                                Steel mace that does as much damage as some grass with spikes.
                                Even powerstanced(what even is that moveset) this thing does no damage and absolutely sucks in PVP.

                                  I found a cool use for it. So you know how crossbow bolts inherit status effects from your main hand weapon? 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.

                                      Curious, since Ripple weapons are pretty good with greases, I wonder if Blood Grease would be pretty decent on these. Even with the B scaling since it already has innate bleed.

                                        When two handed at +10, with 99 in every single stat, this weapon has a total AR of 318 with 135 Bleed build up.

                                        So pretty good damage for a pair of roses.

                                              This weapon is incredible with an Arcane build. Most overlooked weapon in the game. 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.

                                                    They should give this a new Weapon Art called "Stop and smell the roses" where you do just that, but it causes a massive plume of Blood Flies to erupt from you in a large AOE that remains for a decent volume of time. That would give it some flare.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    I see people saying it does such low damage because it’s just a bouquet of flowers, but the item description pretty clearly specifies it as being a metal replica as such. 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.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        arcane 48, using infused heavy thrusting sword dealing 134 bleed, varre's bouquet has reached 120 bleed, the difference is 14. The difference used to be 21 and then it was 18 and now through piling arcane to 48 i have shrank that to the mentioned 14, I have a theory you can push this incredibly far, someone needs to check this weapon out again after soft capping or hard capping arcane. I have screenshots and everything of me shrinking those differences and so on, I will continue to document this to the best of my ability for a showcase perhaps but someone else really should try pushing arcane for this as well.

                                                                                        • Unfortunate that ps4 players can't get it it without paying for ps plus. I don't really care if the weapon is good or bad but it is so visually unique that I'd like to have it.

                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                              Used a +25 Keen Nagakiba vs. a +9 Varre's Bouquet, both with Blood Tax. Here's the results:

                                                                                              Nagakiba (damage buffed/unbuffed): +129 HP
                                                                                              (I tested switching the damage types on the Nagakiba, but it doesn't appear to matter for the normal Blood Tax Art.)
                                                                                              Varre's Bouquet: +86 HP (per hit, had to buff it to get it to kill in one hit)

                                                                                              I'm kind of wondering - Blood Tax doesn't proc when you hit corpses. Maybe the Bouquet is deliberately weak to maximize your vamp potential? It definitely is getting a lot more HP vs. damage, but I'm not certain Blood Tax scales on damage dealt.

                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                scaling is clearly bugged, scales on D even though it is B, people only assume it works because its scaling at all, that is not to say it is doing so properly.

                                                                                                • There's no way developers intended the weapon to be this weak. I do 120 damage on a single r1 at +9 with stat requirements met:

                                                                                                  At 45 arcane and 50 dex, my base damage is 106 with 117 scaling. Oh yeah this thing is at +9.

                                                                                                  Both the base damage and scaling attribute (B arcane, C dex, E str) are way off. It's weird because this arcane weapon doesn't even have additional damage like fire, so it seems like multiple arcane weapons were off and they missed this in the patch. Shame because it's a cool looking weapon.

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                                      The base damage is absolutely abysmal. Eleonora's Poleblade +4 has 113 base physical and 113 base fire. The bouquet has 72 physical only. What is the point of this weapon existing when I can just give a better hammer the Blood Tax AoW?

                                                                                                      • Eleonora's Poleblade has 113 base physical and 113 base fire damage at +4. The Bouquet has 72 base physical at +4, and maxes at 112. The scaling is different sure, but scaling barely gets it to the numbers of the base damage on many other arcane weapons. I have to wonder what is the point of the weapon when you can just put the Blood Tax AoW on a way better hammer? Also, looking through my weapons for an alternative strike weapon for an arcane/bleed build, I saw that Spiked Caestus has base 91 physical without upgrades. Again, what is the point of this weapon. It's not a joke weapon like the ladle in DS2. It's a weapon you get at the end of a questline, and it isn't actually a literal bouquet, but made of steel. This weapon is in desperate need of buffs.

                                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                                I think I’m seeing a lot of confusion around this weapon so here:

                                                                                                                Scaling is not bugged, bugged scaling is only for weapons that scale with arcane and do split damage.

                                                                                                                Arcane scaling does affect AR, look at the Reduvia or Bloody Helice for reference, both weapon’s AR increases when you put a level into arcane.

                                                                                                                This weapon has a very low AR, but it’s meant to rely completely on the bleed. It’s buffable, so with bloodflame blade this weapon can proc bleed better than most other bleed weapons, it’s as good at poise breaking as other hammers and lighter, so it can be used as a solid side weapon to proc bleed while other weapons do raw damage.

                                                                                                                • Anonymous
