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


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 really don't understand how the wording in PvP : "The damage you would have done at the end is multiplied by .94"

        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...

              "If I carry 2 then I might..." no you don't want that. "If in pvp I'm in low health..." you don't want that either. "ok. this weapon sucks. I hate you all. die." Listen kid, if pvp is all you get out of DS3 crawl back to CS GO.

                  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!

                    What does "PVP = additional modifier = 0.94*damage" mean?
                    Does it reduce my damage by 6%? I don't get it.

                      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.
