Elden Ring The Ancient Meteoric Ore Greatsword

The Shadow of the Erdtree DLC brings forth a colossal weapon imbued with celestial power – the Ancient Meteoric Ore Greatsword. This weapon, crafted from a shard of an ancient god’s arsenal, offers a unique blend of strength, dexterity, and arcane scaling, making it a versatile choice for Tarnished warriors seeking a blend of physical prowess and mystical might.

A Relic of the Starfall Past

The Greatsword’s origins lie within the Ruined Forge of Starfall Past. This desolate location whispers of a bygone era, where forgotten deities wielded weapons of immense power. The inscription describes the blade as "a capable piercing weapon that excels at thrusting attacks," hinting at its proficiency in swift, precise strikes.

Claiming the Celestial Shard

To claim the Ancient Meteoric Ore Greatsword, you’ll need to navigate the treacherous path to the Ruined Forge. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

  1. Conquer Castle Ensis: Defeating the formidable Rellana, Twin Moon Knight, is necessary to gain access to the Ruined Forge.
  2. Activate the First Lever: Rest at the Ruined Forge of Starfall Past Site of Grace. Cross the bridge to the southeast and pull the lever, revealing a new passage.
  3. Ascend the Forge: Head inside and turn right, venturing through the corridor until you find a ladder leading upwards. Climb it and proceed onward.
  4. Scale the Rubble: Continue moving forward, navigating the rubble and eliminating any enemies you encounter. Ascend until you reach an elevated platform.
  5. Unlock the Second Gate: Drop down onto the bridge below and pull another lever, unlocking a previously sealed gate.
  6. A Leap of Faith: Behind the gate, pull another lever and quickly jump onto the rising platform. This platform grants access to a western forge.
  7. Claim Your Prize: Within the forge, you’ll find the Ancient Meteoric Ore Greatsword resting upon an altar, alongside an Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone – a testament to the weapon’s celestial origins.

Optional Treasure: Smithing Skill

Following the path beyond the second gate, you’ll encounter a circular room with a corpse holding the Smithing Skill: Cirque. This skill can enhance your combat repertoire, but beware of lurking enemies guarding this hidden treasure.

A Blade for the Arcane Warrior

The Ancient Meteoric Ore Greatsword’s true strength lies in its unique scaling. It thrives with investment in Strength, Dexterity, and Arcane. This blend allows for a versatile playstyle, integrating powerful melee strikes with the potential for arcane enchantments.

Unleashing the White Light Charge

The weapon’s inherent skill, White Light Charge, embodies its celestial nature. This skill allows you to charge forward, covering a significant distance, before unleashing a burst of white lightning that damages nearby foes. While the skill offers impressive offensive capabilities, keep in mind that it cannot be enhanced by the Lightning Scorpion Charm or buffed with spells or consumables.

Upgrading a Celestial Legacy

The Ancient Meteoric Ore Greatsword can be further strengthened using Somber Smithing Stones. By investing these rare materials, you can unlock the weapon’s full potential and unleash its devastating celestial fury upon your enemies.

The Ancient Meteoric Ore Greatsword is more than just a weapon; it’s a tangible link to the forgotten age of the Erdtree. Wield it wisely, Tarnished, and may its celestial power guide you on your journey.
