I consider Leyndell one of the hardest locations in the Elden Ring. The area is swarming with enemies left and right. Some of them are relatively easy to fight, while others are tougher. So, once you’re inside Leyndell, you can simply follow my guide to get to the Coded Sword’s Location.

Coded Sword Stats

The Coded Sword stands out as an exceptional weapon for Faith players in Elden Ring, making the journey to its location worthwhile. This sword delivers massive Holy damage to enemies, accompanied by the unique and powerful Unblockable Blade Ability.

The Unblockable Blade Ability allows you to cut through enemy defenses, reaching beyond their blocks with an extended range. This feature proves especially effective against heavily armored foes, keeping them at a distance. While the ability has a high cost of 25 FP, its benefits make it worth the investment.

My experience with the sword was good as it has great stats and Ash of War.

How To Reach Leyndell, Royal Capital In Elden Ring

To reach Leyndell, Royal Capital, and access the Coded Sword’s location in Elden Ring, face two main storyline bosses, Godrick the Grafted and Renalla Queen of the Full Moon. The area won’t unlock without defeating them. Subsequently, confront the Draconic Tree Sentinel before entering Leyndell.

The following is what you have to do to get the sword: 

  1. Defeat Godrick the Grafted.
  2. Defeat Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon.
  3. Defeat Draconic Tree Sentinel.
  4. Entering Leyndell

When I was using the Faith build, The Coded Sword was the perfect weapon for me. Although, it doesn’t require you to fight any of the bosses to get it. But getting to the Sword’s location itself is quite hard. You have to go through a swarm of enemies in Leyndell, Royal Capital.
