Elden Ring Carian Greatsword Location Walkthrough

This is a step-by-step guide on the location of Carian Greatsword in Elden Ring. It's one of the best skills that will aid greatly in combat.

If you don’t feel like engaging physically much in battles, you don’t need to worry anymore because Elden Ring has introduced a brand new unique system as you combine some of the best weapons with magic. Ashes of War has allowed great skills like Carian Greatsword to exist in both forms, making combat more enjoyable.

Key Highlights

  • Carian Greatsword is an Ash of War that is usable on all swords except Colossal Weapons.
  • Carian Greatsword is located in Stormveil Castle which can be accessed after defeating Margit, The Fell Omen.
  • Traverse through the Stormveil Castle until reaching the Rampart Tower Site of Grace.
  • From there, get out of the room and just past the flying eagles, you’ll see a little Chapel. Inside the Chapel, players can meet the NPC Rogier.
  • After exhausting his dialogue, players will be able to buy Carian Greatsword from him for 2500 runes.

Since the Soulsborne fans are already familiar with the magic system, they would be glad to know that Elden Ring has adapted a similar but more simplified version of magic. And you will need it because Elden Ring, like other games from Souls Universe, maintains its traditional brutality, even taking a step ahead in difficulty but keeping the overall experience amazing. So, in this guide, we will discuss the location of the Carian Greatsword in Elden Ring.

Carian Greatsword Location 

You can find the Carian Greatsword in Stormveil Castle. But to get to the Stormveil Castle, you will have to beat the first non-optional boss you will encounter in Elden Ring, known as Margit the Fell Omen. While fighting this boss can be quite challenging for the new players, his movements follow a repetitive pattern like all the other bosses.

So you can dodge his attacks if you can pick up his movements. Summoning an Ashen Remains or multiple ash spirits can be a good strategy here. To get to the Stormveil Castle, follow our step-by-step guide below.

Arriving At Stormveil Castle

Once you’ve done defeating Margit The Fell Omen, make your way to the Stormveil Castle. You can enter the front of the heavily guarded castle or take a much safer route by taking a left. Gatekeeper Gostoc will guide you from here. Make your way to the Stormveil Cliffside. You will face Bladed talon Eagles here. After you are done with these, you should head to the left side of Stormveil Castle.

You will face yet another enemy here, a Castle Guard wearing a red cloak. You can sneak past him stealthily as well. You will face a lot of enemies here. You will see a locked wooden door that can be opened using a Rusty Key. You can find this key on the upper level of the chamber. You will find a room guarded by a banished knight. In this room, you can find the Rusty Key. After getting this key, move to the chamber above.

Keep an eye out for the Castle guards roaming around. This time, you’ll encounter another Banished Knight with a spear instead of a sword. After dealing with him, move up the stairs and look for the Site Of Grace in Rampart Tower, for you will need this after facing so many enemies.

Interacting With Sorcerer Rogier

Now you are almost near to the location of the Carian Greatsword. Moving ahead, you will face yet another enemy, the Bladed Talon Eagles. They will drain a lot of energy and health, so it is recommended not to fight them.

Moving past them, you will see a staircase on the right. If you see a bladed eagle following you, quit the game and join again. In this way, you will lose the Bladed Eagle. Drop down the hole in the middle of the bell tower, jumping on a platform first then dropping down below to avoid damage.

You will see a little chapel in front of you with a red carpet on its entrance. Make your way inside the little chapel, and you’ll be greeted by Sorcerer Rogier, who is a vendor that sells sorceries. You will also find out that he sells the Carian Greatsword as well, for 2500 runes.

Note that if you have defeated Godrick the Grafted, Sorcerer Rogier will spawn on the Roundtable Hold. Also, we have listed Godrick the Grafted as S-Tier boss in our Elden Ring boss tier list

Infusing the Carian Greatsword

Now that you have obtained the Carian Greatsword,  the next step is how to infuse it. You can infuse the Carian Greatsword to any sword you like except for Colossal weapons. To infuse it, you must possess a Whetstone Knife. This knife is necessary because, without it, you cannot access the Ashes of War menu. You can find this knife in the Godrick base. So, you will either have to fight all the knights and clear out the area or sneak past them. You will find an underground path here that will lead towards a door. Behind this door lies a chest that contains the Whetstone Knife along with Storm Stomp Ashes of War, another useful skill.

Now you can access the Ashes of War menu and infuse your weapons with Ashes of War. You can infuse the Carian Greatsword with a single sword only. However, you can duplicate it by giving the blacksmith a lost Ashes of War and duplicating an already existing one.

The Carian Greatsword is chargeable, and you can execute much bigger and more powerful attacks by holding down L2/LT. This will make your sword increase in its size, making the attacks inflicted by it very damaging. While you’re at it, why not read our Elden Ring Weapons tier list.

With this, we conclude our guide of the Carian Greatsword location. We hope that with our guide, you will be able to locate the Carian Greatsword easily, so you can easily increase the power of any melee weapon.
