Elden Ring has many weapon types that you can choose from, and by far, the one weapon type most people forget about is the Curved Swords. These are insanely good weapons if you know how to use them, and there are quite a few really good ones to find.
Some Curved Swords can extend themselves, and some can spawn lava on the ground. Most of these weapons can be turned into great builds, and they all have their scaling.
There are many other good Curved Swords in the game that are good, but these have the best scaling or skills that go along with them. If we did not put your favorite sword on this list, then we are sorry, and it is mainly someone’s opinion if they like a specific weapon.
1. Eclipse Shotel
Storied sword and treasure of Castle Sol that depicts an eclipsed sun drained of color. One of the legendary armaments. In Sol, the sight of an eclipse inspires a dreadful awe, preventing an onlooker from averting his gaze.
Location: Found at the church’s altar in the southeast section of Castle Sol.
This is probably the coolest-looking weapon on this list because it is different. It is a legendary armament that you need for achievement, and it is worth using. It is a special weapon, so you need Somber Smithing Stones to upgrade it, so you can’t change its skill.
Its skill imbues the weapon in death, and it does a lot of damage to pretty much anything you use it against. The weapon is just an all-around good weapon, and it is one of the best Curved Swords you can get in the game.
2. Wing of Astel
Sword fashioned from a delicate wing, suffused with the magic of the stars. Strong attack unleashes a wave of enchanted light. Crafted from a relic of the Naturalborn of the Void who is said to have assailed the Eternal City.
Location: Found in a small chest at the top of southern Uhl Palace Ruins ruins.
This is a weapon that is based on the Astel fight. The skill shoves a purple Nebula in front of you and explodes, dealing a ton of damage to whoever is near it. The skill damages Poise, so it is a great way to Riposte a boss or a large enemy.
It is a special weapon, so you can’t change its skill, and it is also upgraded with Somber Smithing Stones. It is a very cool-looking weapon that is very good if you greatly enjoy using its skill. If you don’t, it is still a good weapon because of its speed and damage output.
3. Magma Blade
Curved sword with a blade fashioned from the lava of Mt. Gelmir. An armament of the man-serpents, impossible for a human to have made. Deals fire damage.
Location: Dropped by lizardmen wielding the Magma Blade at Volcano Manor.
It looks fun if you have seen an enemy use this weapon. Yes, you can get the weapon from them. You just need to defeat them until they finally drop it. Having lava out of the sword is a nice skill for this weapon, and it deals insane amounts of damage if you can get the enemy stuck in it.
Most of these weapons on this list are special, so you can’t swap out their skills. This is made easier by Somber Smithing Stones only needing 1 per level. Regular Smithing Stones takes 12 per type of Stone; upgrading them fully can take a lot.
4. Nox Flowing Sword
A grim weapon wielded by swordsmen of the Eternal City, this shotel has a blade as fine as a needle. Forged from the liquid metal of a Silver Tear, it is thoroughly tempered until hardened.
Location: Dropped by the Nox Swordstress and Nox Priest boss duo upon defeat.
This is the unique sword on this list because of the skill. This blade was crafted with liquid metal, which can deform and reform into a longer blade. It almost works like a whip, making it a very interesting choice for Curved Swords.
Getting early in your playthrough is relatively easy, but don’t rush to get it. It is found in Caelid, and you must defeat a boss to get it. Its scaling is pretty good and a good weapon choice for anyone.
5. Serpent-God’s Curved Swords
Curved sword fashioned in the image of an ancient serpent deity and tool of a forgotten religion practiced on Mt. Gelmir. Formerly used to offer up sacrifices, this sword restores HP upon slaying an enemy.
Location: Can be found at Ruin-Strewn Precipice behind the Land Octopus.
This sword is probably a great choice because it restores 5% of your HP when you defeat an enemy. You don’t need to have it equipped in your main hand to heal you. The damage isn’t crazy, but it is a great weapon for the buff it gives you. Dual-wield this weapon with another to get multiple bonuses.
6. Mantis Blade
A curved sword with a blade at both ends wielded by the Cemetery Shades, the insect-ridden grave keepers. The blade is thin and sharp, and strong attack unleashes a far-reaching slash.
Location: Dropped by Cemetery Shade in Gelmir Hero’s Grave.
This blade is a normal weapon so you can infuse it with Ash of War. That is what makes this weapon worth it. You can put blood attacks on it, poison attacks, or whatever you want. It has great scaling if you use the correct Ash of War, and it is worth the upgrades if you want to use this weapon.
7. Beast man’s Curved Sword
Curved sword forged of dull iron wielded by the beastmen of Farum Azula. The blade is heavy but well-balanced. Comparatively easy to wield for the damage it delivers.
Location: The Beastman’s Curved Sword can drop from any Azula Beastman carrying this weapon.
Like the other weapon, this can be infused with an Ash of War. The skills on these weapons aren’t the best, but the infusions are worth the time if you want to get any of these Swords. You won’t get this weapon until the late game, so keep that in mind. You could also use this weapon for another playthrough or save Smithing Stones for it later.
