Morion Blade is a Weapon in Dark Souls 3.

A twisted sword resembling the towers of Londor's Sable Church. Eight branching blades and thorns induce bleeding.

The church's blessing makes the weapon revel in the agony of its owner. Heavy losses of HP boost attack, a curse most befitting its deformed appearance.

Skill: Stance
While in stance, use normal attack to break a foe's guard from below, and a strong attack to slash upwards with a forward lunge.

Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused or Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Twinkling Titanite.
  • While on critical HP (below 20%) damage from all sources is increased multiplicatively by:
    • PVE = 20% AR
    • PVP has a hidden modifier. The damage you would have done at the end is multiplied by .94, losing %6. The combination of both this weapon and the Red Tearstone Ring has a modifier of .9, losing %10.
  • Stacks with the Red Tearstone Ring
  • The stat requirments do not need to be met for the buff to take effect.
  • The Morion Blade is named after the weapon with the same name from Demon's Souls.

Location/Where to Find

  • Received from Yuria of Londor after you give her the ashes of Orbeck of Vinheim
  • If Orbeck dies on his own as part of his questline and you loot his ashes from the Grand Archives, Yuria will still accept them. The only requirement is that the quest where Yuria asks you to murder Orbeck has been previously started, .
  • If you don't have enough int (less than 10) Orbeck wont follow you to Firelink Shrine, if you kill him, you'll get his ashes but Yuria won't do anything. To get this weapon, you either need to kill Orbeck in Firelink Shrine after talking to Yuria or progress Orbeck's questline all the way to the end.  Doing the latter will let you get his ashes without having to actually kill him.

        I don't get it ... In the replies of the last comment it was mentioned, that in PVP, you get an additional DMG of 94%. But in the Wiki, it's still written "losing %6". ... And if it stacks with the Red Tearstone Ring, why "losing %10"? ... It should be either additional 94% + 94% = 188% or additional 1.94 * 1.94 - 1 = 276% (so totally 376%). Or having the Red Tearstone Ring plus a Morion Blade in each hand, it would be 730% (1.94^3) in total! In this case, using a Morion Blade+5 on the right hand, against a player with an average Damage Absorbtion of 40%, it would cause a damage of 369 (with 50 STR and 20 DEX, according the weapon calculator) * 7.3 * (1 - 0.4) = 1'616! ...

        Considering this unrealistic amount, I guess Wiki is right but not the replies of the last comment. Isn't it? Otherwise, it's just ridiculous!

          If I've already done usurpation ending and Yuria has left firelink before I gave her Orbeck's ashes, do I have to do another journey in order to get it?

            This is not the place to ask for trades. Go to r/pumparum on reddit. You will have more success and leave this as a location for discussion and information about the weapon itself.

                      I let him die for his own questline, but it seems if Yuria has never commented that he needs to die before he threatens your rule, she won't take his Ashes. Having already completed the portion of Yuria's quest to kill Anri and take her dark signs, all Yuria would say is that she hopes I choose to usurp the flame. It seems that if you don't talk to Yuria about Orbeck before killing Anri, she won't comment on his need to die, but this needs verification.
