Elden Ring: How To Get The Rivers Of Blood Katana
There may be dozens of unique and compelling weapons to find and use in Elden Ring, but few players would disagree that the blood-losing weapon has proven to be one of the most powerful. As such, it’s smart to want to find one that suits your build needs and is also aesthetically cool. That’s where the Blood River katana comes in with its blood-soaked blade, and luckily for you, we’ve got the inside story on where to get this visually striking sword.
Rivers of Blood explained
Rivers of Blood is a katana that can quickly cause blood buildup and requires 12 Strength, 18 Dexterity, and 20 Arcane to wield. His weapon skill, Corpse Harvester, is unique to this weapon, and he unleashes a barrage of bloody attacks that can devastate your enemies. The description for the River of Blood item reads:
Weapon of Okina, a swordsman from the Land of Reeds. A cursed weapon that has slain countless people. When Mog, Lord of Blood, first felt Okina’s sword and the madness on his flesh, he had an offer to offer Okina the life of a demon whose lust would never go unsatisfied.
Where to find rivers of blood
Rivers of Blood is found in the late game Mountaintops of the Giants.. After gaining access to this biome through the main quest chain, you will find the Church of the Rest in the southeast of the map. As you approach the church, you’ll be invaded by an NPC named Okina’s Bloodfinger, who happens to wield the River of Blood katana – so it’s your job to take it from him.
Okina is a relatively difficult fight, as he is very aggressive and can deal significant blood damage. However, punish him when he tries to heal and stay on top of him with the same aggression and he will soon fall. When he does, you’ll receive the Okina mask along with your real prize, the Rivers of Blood katana you’ve been looking for.
