How to get the Rivers of Blood Katana in Elden Ring: Map location

Rivers of Blood KatanaFromSoftware

The Rivers of Blood is a powerful Katana in Elden Ring, but finding this blood-soaked blade can be rather tricky, so here’s exactly where you can locate it on the map. 

While the Moonveil Katana may dominate in Elden Ring’s PvP, the Rivers of Blood Katana is one of the coolest-looking weapons in the game. As the name suggests, this cursed blade has felled many an enemy and is extremely deadly when upgraded. 

However, what makes the Rivers of Blood stand out from both the Meteoric Ore Blade and Moonveil is its unique Weapon Skill – Corpse Piler. When activated, a Tarnished wielding the Katana will unleash a ferocious combo of bloody attacks.

Not only does this look incredibly flashy, but the Katana’s Bloodloss passive makes it incredibly satisfying to use. In fact, even the tankiest enemy’s health bar will quickly drop to zero when this cursed blade cuts through them.
