The BEST Twinblades In Elden Ring [Ranked]

Learn everything there is about the best Twinblades in Elden Ring among all six as well as their stats and the best overall build.

The Elden Ring Best Twinblades come down to their playstyle and attributes, but mainly, they depend on players on how they want to adapt these weapons to their builds. There are 6 Twinblades in the base game of Elden Ring, ranging from the fan-favorite Gargoyle Twinblade to simple ones aligned with affinities to cause bleed damage. Having prior knowledge about the stats and attributes of each Twinblade will be key to mastering them as well as integrating them with your Tarnished’s builds.

Key Takeaways
  • There are a total of 6 Twinblades in the base game of Elden Ring, each having its unique stats and properties, such as special attacks and customizable affinities.
  1. The Gargoyle’s Black Blades offer nothing noteworthy; despite their high attack rating, they lack viability via their holy/physical damage output.
  2. The default Twinblade is great for beginner players as they can dish out excellent damage in two-handed mode and be tuned with different Ashes of War.
  3. The Twinned KnightSwords has great scaling options, as you can use Bleed, Cold, and even Heavy on it without losing too much attack power.
  4. Godskin Peeler has a special attack called Black Flame Tornado, but it isn’t powerful in most situations; however, it is still a decent Twinblade for dual-wield builds.
  5. Eleonora’s Poleblade is a fan-favorite among the community, most notable for excellent blood-loss damage and the Bloodblade Dance special attack.
  6. Gargoyle’s Twinblade has the highest attack rating on Heavy affinity as well as used in my favorite builds of Elden Ring.

  • Why I Chose This: The highest attack rating and the high holy damage that it is able to deal with.

Our list starts with the Gargoyles Black Blades, which can be obtained in the Forbidden Lands area by defeating the Black Blade Kindred. You reach this connecting area right before triggering the entrance to the Mountaintop of the Giants.

The default Weapon Skill found on the weapon is called Spinning Slash.

  • Gargoyle’s Black Blade has the highest attack rating.
  • The Gargoyle’s Black Blade features both physical and holy damage.

  • Why I Chose This: The early game access and the modification options it provides to its Ash of War.

Living up to its name, the Twinblade is the basic weapon in its respective weapon archetype, offering a simple move set and being available immediately when you start the game. You can find it early on in the Dragon-Burnt Ruins in Limgrave, using it with almost any type of Melee build.

The main weapon skill is Spinning Slash, but thankfully, you can at least modify the Ashes of War to configure or alter the Twinblade to your liking.

  • Can be infused.
  • In addition, its Ash of Wars can also be changed.
  • Twinblade has the lowest damage overall.

  • Why I Chose This: The long reach it has on top of its modifiable ash of war.

The Twinned Knight Swords are an upgrade from the default Twinblade, as these can be found in Altus Plateau in front of a Windmill on the East side.

The weapon once again features the Spinning Slash as the default weapon skill, but you can modify the Ashes of War and change its affinity. 

  • Can be infused and given different Ash of Wars.
  • The longest reaching Twinblade.
  • The maximum attack rating still gets outshined by Twinblades such as Gargoyle’s Twinblade.

  • Why I Chose This: The ability to surround yourself with an AoE black flame attack allows for easier combat.

The Godskin Peeler Twinblade can be found by defeating the Godskin Apostle located in the Windmill Village of the Altus Plateau region. The weapon has a unique R2/Right-click attack when two-handing, and what makes it even more unique against other Twinblades is how it has the highest weight.

The Weapon art is called Black Flame Tornado, which allows you to summon an AoE Black flame attack around you, similar to the attacks used by the Godskin Duo bosses.

  • Has one of the best Ash of Wars for Twinblades.
  • Acquired during a mid-game area.
  • The Godskin Apostle can be difficult to kill.

  • Why I Chose This: The flurry of attacks allows for dealing devastating damage to enemies.

Eleonora’s Poleblade Twinblade can be acquired by defeating the Violet Bloody Finger, Eleonora, an NPC Invader who can be found at the Second Church of Marika in the Altus plateau.

The unique weapon art of the weapon is called Bloodblade Dance, where you will charge at the target with a flurry of tornado-like attacks, and you can follow it up with another input which will deal an additional attack.

  • Boasts the best Ash of War for a Twinblade.
  • Builds up Blood loss per hit.
  • The weapon cannot be infused.

  • Why I Chose This: The modifiable ash of war and the high scaling it has with the strength attribute.

Lastly, it brings us to Gargoyle’s Twinblade, which can be obtained by defeating the Valiant Gargoyle Duo in the Siofra Aqueduct area of Nokron, Eternal City. The Gargoyle’s Twinblade also has the highest weight (8.5) out of all the Twinblades found right now.

  • Has strong scaling with Strength.
  • It can be infused and given different Ash of Wars.
  • Boasts the highest weight out of all Twinblades.

My Recommendation For The Best Twinblade

Elenora’s Poleblade stands out as the top Twinblade in Elden Ring due to its potent bleed affinity and satisfying Ash of War. In my experience, it rivals the formidable Rivers of Blood, offering similar high blood affinity and powerful damage output. Additionally, Godskin Peeler serves as an alternative against enemies resistant to blood loss.

In conclusion, this guide highlights the top Twinblades in Elden Ring, but there are many other exceptional weapons worth exploring. From the Reduvia Blade to the Moonveil Katana and Nagakiba, the game offers a diverse selection. Additionally, Legendary Armaments presents enticing options for various builds. Elden Ring’s accolades as a Game of the Year winner are well-deserved, with its exceptional art direction and profound gameplay garnering praise in our review.

There is never a dull moment here. I cannot wait to play the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC when it launches in the coming year or so. I hope you enjoyed reading this article. If you have any other questions, please list them in the comments below! As always, eXputer wishes you luck!
