With the majority of gameplay being devoted to combat, it’s no wonder that Elden Ring has so many weapons to choose from. Of course, some weapons are simply better than others. The Winged Scythe is one such Reaper weapon. An excellent Faith weapon that you can get very early if you know where to go, it has Str E, Dex D, and Fai D scaling, and requires Str 16, Dex 16, and Fai 24. It gives you the Angel’s Wings skill. But the true power of this Reaper lies in the fact that it deals (and protects from) high Holy Damage, and possesses a passive that causes blood loss buildup – especially useful against bosses. We will show you the location of Winged Scythe in Elden Ring.
Where to Find Winged Scythe
The Winged Scythe can be pretty easy to get. To acquire it, head on to the Tombsward Ruins. This dungeon is part of the Weeping Peninsula region. When you get there, go down the stairs. Inside, there are two enemies. They have very quick and powerful attacks. Luckily for you, you do not need to fight them to get this Faith weapon. You can dodge their attacks and open the door on the other end of the room. In this room, there is a chest. Loot it to find the Winged Scythe inside.
While the Winged Scythe is an excellent weapon to wield, especially for characters that have high Faith, it does have a couple of downsides. The most obvious of these is that it cannot be upgraded with Ashes of War. You also cannot buff it using magic and other consumables. The good news is that you can upgrade Winged Scythe with Smithing Stones. When you have enough of these, take them to Smithing Master Hewg at the Roundtable Hold to improve the weapon.
Very early in your exploration of Elden Ring world you will find out that you need to prepare your character for different tasks. You'll need to learn how to use Ashes of War, how to two-hand weapons, or use magic spells during the course of your adventures. Many secrets are also waiting for you, such as, a hostile NPC Sellen that doesn't let you see her shop, an invisible man in a bush, or a huge turtle with a bell that lets you duplicate some very important items.
