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.
  • The Morion Blade has a range of 34.761xl on the 1h R1 and 34.4023xl on the 2h R1.

 

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.

      Do I need to use the sword to get the damage boost or I just need it assigned to a slot?

      Thinking about two-handing my right hand weapon while letting Morion Blade on my left hand + RTSR

      Thanks

        best looking straight sword in the game, but the non sensical bonus C scaling from str should have it on dex instead :/

          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.

            this sword is absolute trash! why would i need a damage boost when i can kill all my enemies without getting hit using the pkcs! only casuls would use this terrible weapon...

              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?

                • Anonymous

                  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?

                      • Anonymous

                        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

                              I think s pretty useful for casters that want an "all or nothing" approach. By definition of a caster build, they have low health and/or defense/absorption, so why not to take advantage of your low hp with something that rewards your perseverance at your final moments? That extra damage might save you from time to time.

                                  True to to it's name, this "moron blade" is perfect for idiots who want to be one-shotted just for some AR buff.

                                    NOTE: if you want this sword you'll have to sacrifice either Orbeck or Anri. Orbeck will die on his own but Anri will be impaled whether you do it yourself or not. If you plan to usurp the fire it doesn't matter though.

                                      If it's shaped like that, it deserves a higher crit multiplier because oh god I don't want that jammed in my *****hole

                                      • So it looses 6% damage bonus when used in PvP, and when combined with the Red Tearstone ring it looses an additional 4%... Does it loose more when when you also have e.g. Lloyd's Ring on??

                                          Stack 2 Morion blades × red tearstone ring + pontiffs right eye + carthus beacon = potential near 100% damage buff provided youre below 20% health and keep landing hits On a 40/40 build the sword will go from just shy of 400 AR to just shy of 800 AR. Add in some extra luck investment and youll also procc bleed at a reasonable rate Not a terribly amazing pvp weapon but for pve no hit runs, this thing is THE best

                                            I thoroughly enjoy how everyone asking to trade for one of these blades has all kinds of dislikes. The instructions to get one is LITERALLY right above this comment section and you barely need to do anything to get it.

                                              For some reason, I am unable to give Orbeck's Ashes to Yuria. I have killed him at Firelink and after Yuria mentioned him. However, I also gave him two scrolls (from Farron Keep), and bought Farron Flashsword, Spook, Aural Decoy, Pestilent Mist, and all of the Gold Scroll sorceries. Did this screw up the assassination reward? Or is it just some glitch or bug that I was unfortunate enough to experience?

                                              • So lets get this out of the way; In NG and for completion reasons I think getting Morian is worth it. You can progress Orbeck normally and get Ashes after Twin Princes. You'll want those Spells on stand even if you're Melee for NG+. Now as to how the weapon actually holds up; There's way better options for Dex/Str scaling S.S's, with higher AR and are they Buffeble/Infuseble. Heck, there's better innate Bleed options too. The only selling point Morian has is it's multiplicative increase below 20% HP. Meaning that in NG+ and beyond it's very easy to die, aka getting 1 hitted. Seems people forget Ads/Bosses get higher HP/Dmg. Even in PVP, no matter if it started as a Melee build people will have some powerful Ranged damage/Spells at that point in NG+. If people want to use it there, they're welcome too it but for those that take critisms to seriously; I'd like too see a upload of them using Morian on NG++ Bosses like Lothric and Consumed then still swear it's a viable option, one worth continued use. Nearly every item is useful at some point. I actually prefer Dagger for Aldrich but you won't see me swearing by the Meta-Gods.

                                                • “Named after the weapon of the same name.” Reeaaaaally? That’s MONUMENTAL! WOW! THEY HAVE THE SAME NAME IN COMMON PEOPLE! WHO KNEW THAT WHEN YOU NAME AN ITEM AFTER AN OLDER ITEM THAT IT HAS THE NAME OF THE OLDER ITEM!!?

                                                      Does it make you do 6% less damage? Seems not right

                                                        Useless sword, especially beyond NG. If you're at critical health, you might as well be already dead in most situations. Mediocre damage otherwise.

                                                          Red tearstone ring, this in the left hand, chime or stave in the right. Use the Symbol of Avarice to get your health to just above the 20% mark, then take it off. Cast Sacred Oath, Deep Protection and then switch to a flame for Power Within. Use your highest damage spell or miracle, e.g Sunlight Spear. You have a narrow window to deal the damage you need to get out.

                                                          This can be an excellent way to start a fight off well, either passing a bosses' first stage rapidly, bringing them to very low health, or alpha striking them outright. Once the various buffs wear off, heal yourself back up to fighting fitness and carry on as normal, if you still need to do it. You'll lose most of the extra damage bonuses, but you'll still have had 40 - 50 seconds to deal Sunlight Spears or whatever that hit 4 - 5k damage each, for instance.

                                                          High risk, high reward, I suppose, but if you can't dodge a bosses' attacks for that long you've got bigger problems.

                                                          In PvP, the idea is to alpha strike as fast as you can. Sneak up on people/hide somewhere and unleash hell as soon as they appear. Your average invader only has about a thousand to a thousand two hundred HP, and your average host of embers only has eighteen hundred. With your massive damage bonuses, this is easily met. Glass cannon PVP is excellent fun, and can gank spank. Remember that Sunlight Spear has a small point blank range hitbox that does spell damage + 60% extra, plus your 200% extra damage from all the stacked buffs...

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!

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.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      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.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                            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.

                                                                                            • Anonymous

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.
