Elden Ring: How To Get The Winged Scythe

Become a holy reaper.


Elden Ring's weapon selection is certainly massive, and that can make it difficult for some players to figure out which armaments are worth using. One weapon that is as deadly as it is cool-looking is the Winged Scythe, which Faith-focused users can turn into a relentless dealer of death. It can be obtained very early on in your adventure through the Lands Between, and if you're hoping to reap some enemies with this excellent option, we've got you covered with where you can get your hands on it.

Winged Scythe explained

The Winged Scythe is a reaper weapon that requires 16 Strength, 16 Dexterity, and 24 Faith to wield. It's a solid option for any Faith build due to its high damage and long reach.

Using the Winged Scythe's weapon skill Angel's Wings will cause you to leap into the air for a flashy and brutal slashing attack. Even if it's not the strongest weapon skill in the game, the visual spectacle of the attack is nevertheless very appealing.

The Winged Scythe's item description reads:

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.

Where to find the Winged Scythe

The Winged Scythe can be found at the Tombsward Ruins in Weeping Peninsula. This area of the game can be accessed almost immediately upon leaving the tutorial, so if you're wanting to rock the scythe for the entire game, it can be grabbed without much of a hassle. Due to its relatively high stat requirements, though, it may be a bit before you can actually wield it.
