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 by 20% multiplicatively.
  • 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.

      If you had one of these in your offhand, casted a slow spell, then at the last second, switched the casting hand to a second morion blade could you get a 40 percent damage boost from the double morion blades on spells?

        Hammer in your head it is all about the Lothric prince fight. It's the end for 2 questlines: Sirris and Orbecks. So check BEFORE you kill them if Orbeck was in the shrine and if you talked to Yuria. Because I forget it myself (happens more easily than one might think) I highly suggest to invest that one single point in intelligence (if you start with knight class) to get Orbeck as soon as possible into the shrine. Sooner or later you will have to visit mom Rosaria for fine tuning anyway. Think about it. Is it worth to risk the Morion Blade just for that single point? Don't wait until you find the Scholar Ring.

          I was stupid and while giving ashes to the handmaiden, accidentally handed in his ashes... Plz do not rush through ash giving like that if you kill him after the quest starts.

            I noticed a strange thing about the morion blade: When stacked with the red tearstone ring at critical health it gets 561 AR, and the black knight sword has 543 without any buffs or effects, and both deal standard physical damage, but when I tested the damage on the firekeeper, the morion blade dealt less damage even though the AR was higher. Unless the firekeeper is a chaos demon I can't get my head around it.

              I just got ducked over by this so I'm going to write it here so you guys can make sure not to do this. Even if you have talked to Yuria once before, you must talk to her again after Orbeck is in firelink and exhaust ALL of her "Talk" dialogue. If not, she will never accept Orbeck's ashes and never give you the sword.

                At +5, which I could get after exploring irythyl (something like 80lvl) has C-C scaling. I have 400+ damage, got some extra luck points for bleeding with and 30-30 str-dex. I have to say that damage is decent. At this point it's great for pve and quite good for pvp (I guess people don't know art of this weapon and don't expect it to be so fast and heavy damage). It will get less useful in late game imo but it's really fun to use it on 80-90 lvl on pvp (on pve I will use it for whole game with dark set because I can haha).

                  Maybe the low scalling isn't that much of a weakness with such a high dmg.<br/><br/>How much AR at STR 40 / DEX 17?<br/><br/>And 40 / 40?<br/><br/>Sure it can't be infused but oh well it looks sweet.

                    Not tough to get this sword if you have patience.. just get the final sorcery scroll in the Grand Archives and find Orbecks corpse kicking back upstairs beyond the first elevator after summoning him for the Lorian/Lothric fight. Take his remains to Yuria for the reward - Thats how i do it anyway and it makes sense cause his dumbass always dies there swinging around a bullsht dagger
