Katanas in Elden Ring how to use them and where to find them ...

Whether you like too much anime or are looking for the best class of weapon in Elden Ring that offers a nice combination of slashing and thrusting damage, Katanas might just be the thing you need.

Regardless of how much Rurouni Kenshin youve seen, most people who play Elden Ring will at some point likely use a Katana, even if its just the Samurai class starting weapon (the Uchigatana, which can easily be found in the Deathtouched Catacombs in Limgrave), but the Katanas in Elden Ring are both excellent slashing and thrusting abilities, given that the move-set is somewhat faster than their competitors in other sword categories

Some of the other sword classes may cause further damage, but the Katana class will always be quite flat on paper and in the game due to the speed of their move-sets, owing to the extent to which damage is dealt by each attack. Most of the Katanas also have a particular skill which is often both stylistically pleasing and useful in combat.

While finding a katana early on might be tedious, here are a few of the easiest to get rid of, and even more unique entries in this weapon class:

Familiar to any Elden Ring player who attempted to 1v1 Malenia, the Hand of Malenia can be seen after facing off against Malenia herself and giving her Remembrance to Enia at the Roundtable Hold. Out of the blades'' huge Dexterity Requirement of 48, the Hand of Malenia is its weapon ability, Waterfowl Dance, which takes up the air to perform a slew of cuts.

The Meteoric Ore Blade is a great weapon for anyone looking for the Katana skill using the Caelid Waypoint Ruins. It has 15 strength, 14 dexterity, and 18 Intelligence to use, thanks to its Gravitas, which creates a gravitational well, and a unique downward slash that staggers most enemies.

The Nagakiba is a long Katana with a base bleed damage of 45, which can be enhanced with Ashes of War. Alongside the Bloodloss Buildup, the Nagakiba is notable for its large thrusting attack which increases the scope due to the blades'' size. The Nagakiba itself can be obtained through the Bloody Finger Hunter Yuras questline.

Rivers of Blood: It''s the Katana that everyone knows, and it''s the Bloodloss specialty Katana that consists of 52 Bloodloss buildup and uses the blood slinging skills Corpse Piler. Out of 12 Strength, 18 Dexterity, and 20 Arcane requirements, potential Rivers of Blood wielders will also have to face off against the Bloody Finger Okina.
