Elden Ring: How To Get The Blasphemous Claw [Location]

In today's guide, I will discuss how to obtain and use the Blasphemous Claw to ease the Maliketh boss fight.

The Elden Ring Blasphemous Claw is a tool with a single very specific purpose. Like various other tools in the game, its purpose is to help you defeat a boss that you have to take down in order further to discover the power and purpose of the Elden Ring.

Now in order to obtain the Blasphemous Claw, you will first have to progress the story of the game to a point where you have battled with the Fire Giant. This is due to the fact that after the battle, you will be teleported to the Crumbling Farum Azula.

  • He is also a merchant, but in this instance, you will have to battle him and defeat him. 
  • Upon defeating him, he will drop the Blasphemous Claw as a reward. And now you know the Blasphemous Claw’s Location.

My Experience

My Elden Ring hours (SteamID: Future Bird)

For me, Maliketh was one of Elden Ring’s hardest bosses during my first playthrough. Unfortunately, I didn’t learn about the Blasphemous Claw until my third playthrough. But after actually using it, I must say that fighting Maliketh got a lot easier. Remember that you’ll need to practice your parry timing before you can actually use this item.

Also, don’t make my mistake; the Blasphemous Claw cannot parry every swing made by Maliketh. It can only parry the ones with a yellow glow. And with that, I bring my guide to an end. Where I thoroughly instructed you on the Blasphemous Claw Location and Uses. However, if you feel like I forgot to add something, please let me know through the comment section below.
