Sacred scythe resembling a pair of white wings. Deals holy damage.

According to pagan belief, white-winged maidens are said to be Death's gentle envoys.

      After trying this thing out it's no wonder this weapon is popular, it hits very hard in spite of the fact that its scaling isn't very high, it can of course moderately bypass blocking, its weapon art is probably where it shines the most, it does great damage while juggling humanoid enemies on top of being able to break poise quite quickly, it has pretty heavy super armor once you're in the air and stops enemy players/npc enemies from using flasks temporarily when you land a hit with the weapon art, and to top it all off it has innate bleed, its not as effective against bosses who tend to have high holy resistance and certain enemies, and its reach can seem a little short in spite of how long it is but otherwise its rarely ever a bad option for a Faith build, and it has an awesome design, and its so fun flying through the air like an angel while juggling and cleaving through asses.

        The most important weapon I. This game. Prevents health chugging because that stupid albunuric pot is way too easy to dodge.

          Remember not to use a holy damage weapon against bosses. It's fine against most mobs, but against bosses you need to whip out lightning and fire incantations and not rely on melee if you're a hybrid melee/faith or a pure faith build unless you're the type that uses faith for buffs but is otherwise heavily melee.

            On the damage chart, what does “Sta” stand for? Or what value is the column representing?? The last column under attack power on the damage chart.. been literally eating away at me from the inside out and I give in and therefore must ask… smh.. lol my elden ring only has Physical Magic Fire Lightening Holy and Critical … where is my “Sta” lol I want some “Sta” damage too!

              Great secondary RH weapon for a faith build, especially in PVP. I've been combining it with thorn sorceries via staff of the guilty as my secondary LH. A nice switch up and surprise for a faith build.

                Don’t be fooled. This is likely referring to the death rite birds. This is not for holy paladins who salute the erdtree... but for unholy pagans who shepherd Those Who Live In Death, much like the eclipse shotel.

                  Love this weapon for invasions. Weapon art does a ton of damage and with the health prevention it allows you to pick off phantoms quickly.

                      Noteworthy pros and cons:

                      Pros:
                      Great damage, physical and faith
                      Bleed effect
                      Partially bypasses blocks
                      Weapon art breaks poise and juggles human sized enemies
                      Weapon art also prevents flasks in pvp

                      Cons: holy damage is almost useless against a lot of enemies and bosses in the game, and holy knights with high armor will end up taking little of either type

                      Less range than you’d expect given its length. Very easy to miss charged attacks and guard counters other weapons would hit with


                      On torrent, charged attacks don’t damage enemies you run past as they charge, and the attacks are straight vertical to the side. Coupled with the short range, makes horseback jousting fights more difficult than other weapons

                        The best thing I like about this weapon in PVP is that if you can proc the bleed effect, players and can't heal cause the WA prevents them from doing so and they take off running around trying to heal while you chase them down and finish them off. So hilarious watching them trying but failing to heal. LOL!

                          I finished the game, tried out many weapons (Staffs, Katanas, Swords, Axes, Twin Blade, Colossal Weapons, Spears, Hellebardes) but this one is my all-time favorit. I dunno why, but I love the moveset, I love the attacks, I love the AoW... never liked a weapon in any game before like I liked that one. I will go on DEX/FAI in my NG+ and will dual wield this sexy mf.

                            perhaps a reach, but could this be inspired by Lothric's unused scythe from DS3? both Lothric and this scythe have some angelic theming and both use relatively similar white holy magic

                              one of the reasons i went for a holy build in a new character was to have a weapon that didn't need to double tap undead, well i thought any holy weapon could do that but this one can't

                                Is the weapon art super punishable in pvp? Yeah. But since you get two swipes, you have a decent chance of hitting once. As a caster, it's pretty easy (and funny) to punish people running away to find that their flask doesn't work. With so many status effects available, not healing is a death sentence

                                  I'm level 110 and still use this one. The AoW is awesome, you gain blood loss buildup and can attack very fast. I really love this weapon, nearly as much I loved Bloodhounds Fang on my Vagabond.

                                    Aiming the L2 from mid air feels soo satisfying. The ability to break poise with the L2 is another thing the weapon has going for it. Finally killing octopuses is reliably possible for new. I did not like the design at first but it grew on me. With a Mausoleum Knight Armor you will look like an awesome paladine. Definitely give this one a try with a faith paladine hybrid build!

                                      So randomly I’ll attack a enemy and do 13,400 damage out of nowhere. Idk what causes it but I was fighting Godfrey and started doing 13,400 damage a hit randomly

                                        This, Reduvia and Meteoric Ore Blade are really good weapons to start off a run comfortably. This for faith, ore blade for int, reduvia for arc / if you only care about dat blood loss

                                        Why these? Somber weapons can be upgraded to +9 before beating a boss. If you do that, you even get to cheese a boss for 50k. From that it steamrolls to cheesing more cheesable bosses and poof, you're lv 70 lol

                                            Is this any good as a backup melee for a FTH/ARC dragon build since there's no melee weapon that has dual scaling with those two stats?

                                              Really good weapon until Blasphemous blade. Then it is completly outclassed (strictly speaking about pve).

                                                Why did they think this was okay? Its a hard hitting weapon with reach, bleed and seemingly infinite poise on the weaponart that combos into itself AND blocks flask usage? Im telling you, once bleed/rivers of blood gets nerfed to oblivion EVERYONE will be using this, and pvp will just be who can spam the weaponart first. Its just too good.

                                                  This weapon makes the game easy mode. Get the str and dex requirements, then just pump faith, and you will BREEZE through content. I'm never playing with this weapon again because it legitimately trivializes the game. Add the mimic, even post-nerf, and you will melt bosses. This this is an easy mode monster.

                                                    Weapon felt great overall while playing a faith build.

                                                    It does respectable posture damage with guard counters and jumping R2s, bleed procs are great against bosses, and the split damage makes it viable against most enemies.

                                                    The weapon art is quite strong as well, as a few of them will typically break a bosses stance and/or give a bleed proc.

                                                    I also leveled up Godslayers Greatsword and Blasphamous Blade but Winged Scythe just felt stronger for general use.

                                                      Best weapon for any Faith Build... I took down the Capital Tree Sentinels and all the Black Knight Horseman on foot with this Scythe... WA gives you hyper-armor while in the Air+Holy Damge+Bleed damage... You can cause bleed stun lock on just about any enemy or Boss after your second WA move depending on your stat level and Physik... WA animation as you rise forward in the Air Scythe does a up slash hit and coming down it does down slash hit... after that just spam it again and your enemy is stun locked into oblivion... I don't leave home without my Wings!!!!

                                                        An absolute godsend for invading, nothing more satisfying than seeing a host desperately try to heal as you kill him, 10/10

                                                        • If you are constantly able to hit both swings scytches WA overtakes BB WA by 101 damage, while also consuming less fp, taking as much time to do both swings as BB WA and not rendering you stationary for the cast time duration AND causing blood loss.


                                                          Tested on the godrick soldier near gatefront with 71 dex, 80 fth, 80 str, shard of alexander and fire or holy scorpion charm.

                                                          (-)
                                                          Its physical damage is absolutely ass and for a scytche the range seems to be really short. Outside of the WA it also feels extremely clunky to use, and thats not because its a scytche, ive played like 100 hours in DS3 with friedes scytche and that one was smooth af, this one is just... weird. Also most main bosses have high holy resist.

                                                          (+)
                                                          Good weapon for not so mobile bosses that have low holy resist / high fire resist / are weak to blood loss, its also extremely light, with 36 end, radagons soreseal and great jars arsenal i was able to equip full bull-goat armor with godslayers seal along with it.

                                                          (Better then BB?)
                                                          Imo generally no, but its worth getting to +10 along with BB because it can outshine it on some bosses.

                                                            most underrated weapon in the game. people are sleeping on this thing because there's no flashy effects and it doesn't look like anything special on paper but wow this weapon art is amazing. not only for the heal block, but because you almost never get interrupted and it does insane stance damage. do yourself a favor and give this thing a try if you're running a faith melee hybrid build.

Tracking makes it hard for enemies to dodge, light wieight for easy shields, makes invaders chumps due to heal blocking, bleed makes it good for bosses and somehow does okay poise damage. Pretty much only dropped it for blasphemous blade when more enemies because scary to be near or couldnt be bleeded or have very high holy resistance. If i were to do a faith build again id probably use this or halo scythe because of how late they give you the sanctified blade.

                                                                  • Anonymous

The weapon art is outstanding- reasonably quick, does excellent damage and staggers in potentially both of its two hits.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                        im really enjoying it. Its special skill "Angels Wings" prevents healing on the target.
                                                                        its heavy enough that i can stagger most normal enemies, and even some bosses. to the point that the normal knights in lyndell i can just delay my attack by about a second and they just die before they can attack.

                                                                        • Anonymous

Especially because the damage isnt even that high to begin with. But it looks gorgeous and i think with a good dex/faith build, you can still do acceptable damage.

                                                                          • Good off hand weapon If you rely a lot on your faith spell there might be a C dex scaling but I don't see the difference in damage at all with and without high dex

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                          Sneak attack is faster than normal attack and pretty good for roll catch.

                                                                                          • This weapon is a real beast! I mained this on my first playthrough, minimum str/dex and high faith. It has high damage, holy damage, bleed, does slashing attacks, ignores shields, has a Duel Hunter Charm WA that does a lot of damage (very effective against Invaders and Tarnished enemies that have Flasks) and it looks sick af. The only downside it really has are the relatively high stat requirements when you find it for the first time. Together with a fully upgraded Mimic you shred through every single boss like butter with this weapon.

                                                                                                • Anonymous

Infinite hyper armor after going airborne, big stagger, great damage, good for rollcatch. It's also extremely practical for PvE if you need a guaranteed trade to finish off a boss or enemy and it has strong CC with its sweeping motion and ability to dodge over low attacks. The weapon itself also just has awesome range, speed and even has better 2H poise than a greataxe which makes no sense. Honestly everything about this weapon just works.

                                                                                                      • Anonymous

The second hit can often stagger, but the first hit is fairly light. Need more testing, but I'm pretty sure there's hyper armor during the animation.

                                                                                                        • Anonymous

Also unfortunate you can't change Ash of War for better scaling but its skill is still very good.

I ran a confessor build with dex/faith but switched halfway because I wanted to try this weapon out. The weapon art does tons of damage once you start leveling it and each upgrade is a noticeable difference.
