The Swamp Executioner’s Sword is one of the most powerful weapons in the Elden Ring. Here’s everything you need to know about it.
Enemies in Elden Ring can decimate your health bar with one or two attacks. The final bosses leading up to the end usually have one or two attacks that can shoot you.
If you’re fighting the Elden Beast and don’t have one of the best armor sets in the game, just about any attack can hit you.
It’s important to have a weapon that can do huge damage even with the smallest opening. This is where the sword of the executioner of the Marais comes in.
His unique skill is enough to wipe out the likes of Lichdragon Fortissax. Here is where you can find it.
We use Sites of Grace to reference different places in this article, so it’s worth going out and checking them all out!
Where to find Swamp Executioner’s Sword + Map
Players will be able to obtain the Swamp Executioner’s Sword as a drop from Elemer of the Briar in The Shaded Castle.
To find the Shadowed Castle, you’ll need to head north from the Grace site of the Atlus Plateau. Eventually the path will narrow and you will see a huge castle surrounded by pools of scarlet rot and some stone walls.
Explore the sides of the walls and you’ll eventually find an opening that will take you to the Scarlet Rot area. From there you should see a ladder.
At this point you can take the ladder to enter the castle. Go through the castle and eventually you will come across a hallway with many statues.
You’ll see the dreaded fog boss covering the door at the end of this hallway. Enter this area and the Elemer of the Briar boss fight will begin.
This boss battle can be tricky due to the small size of the room, but dodge Elemer’s drill attack and you can sink into a few heavy hits.
After defeating Elemer, the Swamp Executioner’s sword will drop.
If you haven’t completed Millicent’s quest, now is a good time to do so. One of the main quest items, Valkyrie’s Prosthesis, can be found here.
Swamp Executioner’s Sword – OP Weapon Skill: Dancing Blade of Eochaid
To use the Swamp Executioner’s Sword to its full potential, players will need to use Eochaid’s Dancing Blade.
The Swamp Executioner’s Sword is a great weapon, but his unique skill, Eochaid’s Dancing Blade, can decimate enemies when used correctly.
Eochaid’s dancing blade hurls the Swamp Executioner’s sword at enemies and pierces them, wiping out their lifebar in seconds.
When we say thrust, we mean that players will enchant the sword and send it flying towards enemies. The sword will spin vigorously and damage enemies with each spin.
A fully upgraded Swamp Executioner’s Sword is already phenomenal and one of the best weapons in Elden Ring.
But when players develop the right stats, it can take out some of the strongest bosses in Elden Ring with just a few hits.
Players will want to prioritize their STR and ARC stats when leveling up to maximize the potential of Marais Executioner’s Sword.
If you feel like you want a second weapon in your arsenal, there are plenty of other weapons that scale with Arcane that will allow you to maximize your strengths.
And if you haven’t been able to get past Godfrey, First Elden Lord, then we have some tips that might help.
Finally, if you’re planning on starting a New Game Plus in Elden Ring, you might want to run through this checklist before you do.
