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 = 19% AR
  • Stacks with the Red Tearstone Ring, and with another Morion Blade. This can be abused with spells like Homing Soulmass or Seething Chaos to get 3 instances of damage boost stacked together.
  • The stat requirments do not need to be met for the buff to take effect.


Softcaps & Scaling:

  • 12/17 = 268 AR = Base Stats
  • 40/17 = 356 AR = Str Softcap
  • 12/40 = 309 AR = Dex Softcap
  • 40/40 = 397 AR = Quality Build

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 wish there was a shield in the game that can boost your defense when you’re at low health so It can also stack with blue tearstone ring.

            Use this at SL 25 with Sneering Mask, Antiquated Dress, Leather Boots; Flynn's, Milkring and Obscuring ring (<30% load). Be a Londor's Assassin! It is also a pun because, you know, the Leather Boots.

              Is there any possibility to get both Morion Blade and Manikin Claws without killing Orbeck or just waiting his "naturally" death at his quest end?

                Im sorry but "the damage you would have done at the end is multiplied by 0.94, losing 6%" - ??? If for PVE its 20% and for PVP its 0,94*20 then it's 18,8% which is almost just as high as for PVE. Also why not write percentages for PVE and PVP instead of writing math equations?

                  Sekiro's Divine Dragon wielded a branched sword kind of similar to this. It was a take off of the seven branched sword from Korea, but it's really similar. The only difference is the seven branch had staggered branches and these are evenly parallel.

                    If I cast Sunlight Spear at full health while trading, but when the spell actually is ejected I have low health, does the buff apply?

                      This Sword always reminds me of The lord of the rings. Mainly because it wounds similar to Moria (The mines of Moria to be exact) and the description saying it resembles the towers of the black church reminds me of the two towers of Sauron. Anyone else?

                        This weapon design is based on the ***** of a cat or chimpanzee. Yuria was a zoologist in her human life.

                          Made a bleed build so I made sure to bring Orbeck back to firelink. Brought him there, killed him for the ashes only to realize I didn’t talk to Yuria first. I hate this game sometimes
