How to Get the Sacred Relic Sword in Elden Ring

The Sacred Relic Sword is one of Elden Ring’s strongest weapons.

Given that you can only obtain this weapon after beating the game, it should come as no surprise that it happens to be the most difficult to acquire.

Sacred Relic Sword Location

To obtain the Sacred Relic Sword in Elden Ring, you must defeat the final boss of the game.

Elden Ring is a challenging game, and making it to the final boss is not an easy journey and will demand skill and time.

You will need to complete the following before you can reach the final boss:

  1. Reach the Giants’ Mountaintops
  2. Defeat the Fire Giant
  3. Make your way to the Forge of the Giants
  4. Burn the Erdtree
  5. Make your way through the Crumbling Farum Azula
  6. Defeat Maliketh, the Black Blade
  7. Obtain the Rune of Death
  8. Progress through the Ashen Capital
  9. Head to the Elden Throne

After you have made it to the Elden Throne, take the stairs and enter the fog.

There, you will face Radagon of the Golden Order.

When you beat him, you’ll see a cutscene in which the Elden Beast appears to fight you as the game’s true final boss.

After defeating the Elden Beast, you will be rewarded with the Elden Remembrance.

Once you’ve obtained the Elden Remembrance, proceed to the Roundtable and seek the Finger Reader Enia.

Interact with her to obtain the Sacred Relic Sword in exchange for the Remembrance.

Sacred Relic Sword Requirements

In order to effectively wield the Sacred Relic Sword, you must have a minimum requirement of 14 Strength, 24 Dexterity, and 22 Faith.

The Sacred Relic Sword is a greatsword with Strength, Dexterity, and Faith scaling. It’s capable of dealing both Physical and Holy Damage.

Moreover, the unique weapon art, Wave of Gold, releases a lengthy and gradually expanding arc of Holy Damage that affects everything in its path.

What Build Does Sacred Relic Sword Work Best With?

Based on the Sacred Relic Sword requirements, it’s best used for a mixture of Faith and Dexterity builds.

Considering Runes levels, these are the stats you’ll need to make the most of your Sacred Relic Sword:

  • Vigor: 40
  • Mind: 25
  • Endurance: 30
  • Strength: 15
  • Dexterity: 50
  • Intelligence: 16
  • Faith: 40
  • Arcane: 8

The two most important stats that you should focus on are Dexterity and Faith.

This will help to boost the weapon’s damage with the scaling that it gets from these two stats.

Additionally, it’s recommended to not forget about leveling up both your Vigor and Endurance since they are as important to keep you alive.

Moreover, the Talismans that will work best with the Sacred Relic Weapon and specifically benefit its weapon art are Carian Filigrees Crest and Shard of Alexander.

Since the Wave of Gold requires 42 FP, the Carian Filigrees Crest will reduce the FP cost down to 25%, while the Shard of Alexander will increase the skill damage by 15%.

Another thing to consider is pairing this weapon with some incantations.

Since your Faith level will be high, it will not only boost the damage of the weapon but will also give you the chance to use incantations.

A mixture of this strong weapon with some of the best incantations in Elden Ring will make you unstoppable.
