Wakizashi is a Dagger in Elden Ring. The Wakizashi scales primarily with Strength and Dexterity and is a good Weapon for short range melee combat. It initially starts with the Quickstep skill, which excells at both evasion, and providing openings for follow up attacks. 

 

Short sword with a tempering pattern on the blade. A weapon unique to warriors of the Land of Reeds. Afflicts targets with blood loss.

These swords are considered auxiliary weapons. Yet, one man is known to wield this weapon in his left hand while using a full-sized katana in his right. A demonic swordsman known only as Okina.

 

Where to Find Wakizashi in Elden Ring

The Wakizashi weapon can be found at the following location:

  • Inside Gaol Cave, found inside one of the locked cells. The player must unlock the cells first. [Map Link]

 

 

Elden Ring Wakizashi Notes & Tips

  • Weapon SkillQuickstep
  • This weapon can be infused with Ashes of War.
  • Wakizashi can be upgraded by using Smithing Stones
  • Causes Blood loss Buildup: hemmorage (38)
  • Does NOT powerstance with daggers other than a second Wakizashi.
  • Can be powerstanced with Katanas or a second Wakizashi.
    • Uses the normal katana powerstance moveset, even if powerstanced with another Wakizashi.
    • Like all powerstanced weapons, L1 (left hand attack) attacks with both weapons and L2 (weapon skill) uses the right-hand weapon skill.
    • This only works with the Wakizashi in the left hand. Cannot powerstance with a katana on the left and a Wakizashi on the right. 
    • When used as part of a powerstance, the Wakizashi uses a separate set of attack ids when powerstanced with a katana in mainhand, making its damage output roughly comparable to an equally leveled left-handed Uchigatana.
      • This leads to it getting a 115, 127, 115, 141 motion value chain instead of a 90 100 90 110 motion value chain.
    • Advantages over using a second katana:
      • Able to equip Ash of War: Parry. When equipped with Parry, L2 will use the left-hand parry instead of the right-hand Katana's skill.
      • The powerstance L1 combo consumes roughly 20% less stamina.
    • Disadvantages over using a second katana:
      • Shorter than all even the shortest katana (Serpentbone Blade), resulting in its attacks missing regularly if not close to an enemy.
      • If power-stanced with itself, its power-stance moveset is slower than the normal dagger moveset, resulting in slower status buildup.
    • Despite the weapon calling itself a Wakizashi, it more closely resembles a Tanto due to its small size.
  • Sell Value:  er runes 13 100.
  • NOTE: As of Patch 1.08, the speed and distance of some attacks has been increased and the recovery time has been reduced.
  • NOTE: As of Patch 1.09, the scaling values of this weapon were changed. Please refer to the Upgrades Table of this weapon below.
  • Other notes and player tips go here

The Wakizashi can be infused with Ashes of War. Click below for a list of all possible Ashes of War that can be applied to the dagger.

    • While you might be enticed to use this alongside a Katana for Power Stance related reasons, they also pair well with Halberds, and a Cold Wakizashi with Chilling Mist is better than any other Cold Dagger by quite a large margin when used alongside the Dragon Halberd with 0 Intelligence investment and 54 Str/42 Dex (I'm getting 445 AR versus the next best option being the Cold Bloodstained Dagger with 408 AR), you'll have a decently strong true combo of Halberd R1 -> Dagger R1 that applies a grand total of 245 Frostbite.

        Alot of people think this thing is worthless so lets just clear the air here - this 'Dagger' does one thing, it allows the use of Parry with a powerstanced Katana moveset. (Since Katanas can't equip parry.)

        As for actual applications for this, maybe fun for a parry only playthrough or something, but the main time I see this guy used is in RL1 runs, where powerstanced Katanas to stack bleed are very good at mitigating a lack of damage on late game bosses, and being able to parry on a RL1 run makes thing alot easier, also the stat requirements are low enough you can pair it with an Uchi and Radagons Soreseal from the jump.

          Its powerstance attacking speed should be equal to other dual daggers, not just a copy and paste from dual katanas.

          • Anonymous

            I got my hands on TWO wakazashis, however the dual wield attacks become "katana" dual wield moveset, which MUCH slower than the dagger dual wield attacks. If you want a long reach dagger pair, try Misericorde with Celebrants dagger. Otherwise this Waki is just for fashion.

            • Anonymous

              When you equip two katanas the sheats overlap each other on the same side of the waist but when you equip a katana and the Wakizashi, the latter's sheath is placed on the other side of the waist.

              I truly wished for a long+short sheath fashion and was disappointed to find out it wasn't possible.

              • Anonymous

                Worth noting that this thing's B scaling (for Heavy or Keen) is noticeably better than the Misericorde's so that e.g. a two-handed Heavy Waki +25 with 60 strength gets you 453 AR while a two-handed Heavy Misericorde +25 with 60 Strength gets you 411. The Cinquedea gets you 480 but also looks dumb cuz the handle is made for one-handing >:( Anyway this is very much one of the best daggers for just dealing damage, plus it has bleed and the 4th best reach (albeit behind both the Cinque and the Miseri).

                  I'm trying this build: Dual wield cold uchigatanas, fire wakizashi 2nd slot. Apply frost, apply bleed. Change wep, reset cold. Rinse and repeat

                  • Anonymous

                    Fashion choice! Not a really bad weapon if U use it for fashion dual-wielding though, decent damage, just shorter reach than full-size katanas. Just remind that U can't use a lot of powerful AOW on daggers, so no dual seppuku.

                    • Anonymous

                      I know people say it all the time but hear me out, Seppuku, right? If you use it with this weapon, but it kills you, it plays a unique death animation. Wouldn't that be cool

                        can someone explain why seppuku is not available for this but from some unholy reason is available for spears?

                          I only use this to seppuku when I get low-health in duels to preserve my honor. Gotta uphold historical accuracy.

                            powerstancing a katana and the wakizashi should give it onikiri and ubadachi moveset on its L1 attacks would make it much more usable in fights since you really do tend to miss allot of your attacks with this; That and the L1 combo is stupid slow for how small the wakizashi is.

                              So fun to dual wield this with the uchi. Feeling like musashi from rgg kenzan. Except there are no over the top heat actions lol.

                                It’s so goofy that this is the only weapon that can power stance without being the same weapon class. There’s so many combos that just make sense, yet this is the only one. Ight.

                                  Good god, this weapon is basically trash Teir. I seen it on paper like cool parry with katanas…yeah, the damage nerf, short range, and the fact it can’t power stance with other daggers is just a hard pass lol. Rather just equip a shield and dual katanas.

                                    This was almost a great weapon imo. I don’t understand why you cannot power stance with other daggers.


                                    Daggers are pretty much tied with bows as being nearly unusable because of the effort that’s needed. Make or buy 99 arrows and most enemies that they would be useful on simply dodge 80% of them unless you catch them in a long combo. Same with dagger. You basically have to build pure tank and try to fight through damage to make them useful. Otherwise curved swords are simply better.

                                    At least if you could power stance with daggers and katanas then you could swap for quick status build up (like frost for debuff) and go back to katanas for bleed and damage.

                                    Just a 1/2 baked idea

                                      This gets a considerable motion value buff when powerstanced, letting it do far more damage than its AR suggests. Even with ~100 less AR than my other katana, it will hit harder than some of them in the offhand.

                                          Personally, I dont find the fun in using Katanas, but this however I consider this the best Katana in the game.

                                            Does this have the longest range among daggers? I'd love to make a dual weird build but daggers range is so poor. The only one I can think that might have better range is Misericorde but I was hoping someone would know

                                              I'm not interested in dual daggers and don't care about riposte damage, so this is the best dagger for me.

                                                                Seems kinda pointless to run dual wak, katana moveset on dual daggers, not to mention the stamina drain is identical to using a katana and wak, unless you are doing it for weight your better off with great knives for powerstancing

                                                                • This thing is Insane on a dex/int build. I use it sling rivers of blood. with the Frost affinity. It cause 38 bleed and over 100 Frost. It is fast, uses 20% less stamina, can parry and in my build it does over 400 dmg (40dex/60int).

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    I was originally going to use the bandit knife with my weeaboogatana so I could have a faster and slower attack... but when I found out the wakizashi doesn't powerstance with katanas if you have it in your main hand, I figured "Screw it, I'm going all weaboo with this one." Very nice to have a weapon with a fast attack paired with a slower one, as it seems Musashi figured out.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        And seems like has a faster move set ( less animation frame and faster recover frame).

                                                                        It could be a good chose if u have a moonveil / river of blood on right-hand and use them with Wakizashi for bleed/cold

                                                                        • Anonymous

Really strong power stance procs bleed and cold overall cold + moonveil is goated regardless of enemy bleeding or not

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  Is poison viable enough to make a double status effect build work?

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      In some ways it is the best choice for building a dual-wielding katana in the early stages of the game.
                                                                                      1. Lighter weight means you can allocate upgrade points to other areas.
                                                                                      2. You can use Parry while dual-wielding.
                                                                                      If you are a master of Parry and dodge, you will not need a shield?
                                                                                      3. Like Uchigatana, you don't need to raid the boss to get it.
                                                                                      Disadvantages:
                                                                                      1. Using Parry will sacrifice the skills of the right katana, you will need to switch between left-handed weapons or two-handed to make the skills.
                                                                                      2. need two Stonesword Keys to open the cave.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            They must have pretty basic coding for weapon pairings, because it should be interchangeable with the dagger and katana pairing for different movesets.

                                                                                            It's dagger classed, but has no crit (though most don't) and can't access dual dagger moveset. It's solo damage isn't that good because clearly it's designed for parrying/accompanying katana.

                                                                                            So basically you get the shortest katana in souls history. With less damage and bleed, but the dagger 1/2 handed moveset.

                                                                                            But the absolute worst thing about this is the R2 charge attack being a slash and not a thrust unless 2 handing it and it's the second R2 at that :/

                                                                                            • Anonymous

Damage difference from doing keen waki is negligible and if you have that high of dex you probably are further ingame with better katanas for powerstance

                                                                                                Be very careful about using this, since you are stuck with the Katana moveset and NOT the dagger one when powerstancing it. Just learned this one the hard way after spending all my runes to +24 two of the buggers

But it leaves a little to be desired. the only other 2 katana's I've found are magic katana's which I can't use (the moonviel and the metrorite blade. Is there a way to get a second Ugchi other than starting as a Samurai?

                                                                                                    • Would be absolutely busted if you could apply seppuku. Imagine 2 handing this into seppuku, then switching into a bleed unfused katana powerstancing with 2 blood buildup goliaths while being able to use the katana's ash of war.

                                                                                                        • Anonymous

Because that would literally make this the best side arm in the game.
