What is Eleonora’s Poleblade in Elden Ring?
Similar to how there are Colossal weapons in the game or any other weapon type for that matter, Eleonora’s Poleblade is also a distinct kind of armament found within the Lands Between. It’s actually a Twinblade in essence, comprising a formidable rank in the overall Elden Ring weapons Tier List.
The in-game description of the weapon gives us a brief slant about the backstory of Eleonora’s Poleblade. “Twinned naginata forged in the Land of Reeds. Chosen weapon of Eleonora, Violet Bloody Finger” is what this Poleblade comes with as a form of expressing itself.
There’s definitely a lot more to this than just that, provided how we have to slay a certain character to actually obtain the weapon. Speaking of which, you don’t have to embark on a day-long questline, such as the Elden Ring Ranni Quest at least to get your hands on Eleonora’s Poleblade.
All you need to do is locate, or should we say, hunt down Violet Bloody Finger, kill the commendable foe, and claim her main armament as your own. To be honest, getting to Eleonora’s Poleblade isn’t hard at all. This is part of what makes this Twinblade so desirable to have in Elden Ring, and we haven’t even told you the rest.
This is an armament that houses the capability to absolutely butcher your foes. It’s fast, lightweight, and a sure-fire method of obliteration that adversaries in PvP definitely cannot handle.

This thereby verily hits the perfect trifecta of some truly hard-hitting stats.
No matter if you’ve used a Dex-based character build or you’re someone who prefers an Arcane build in Elden Ring instead, the Poleblade we’re on about is the jack of all trades, capable of accommodating your character regardless of the build. Although, of course, some statistics are imperative and have to be watched out for.
Let us cut to the chase and transition our lingo more toward the essentials of this weapon. First off, Eleonora’s Poleblade is an “honest” bleed weapon with a blood loss buildup Passive Effect. This is in the sense that it does not go above its reach and amount to a balanced experience at the end of the day.
Now that you know the weapon’s Passive Effect, let us talk about the damage figures that the Poleblade can dish out for us. The base Physical Attack power of the weapon is slated for 72 points, which is fairly average. However, the overall damage dealt by the armament can be taken significantly higher.
That is if you keep focusing on statistics distribution and upgrade the Poleblade with Somber Smithing Stones. Similar to how there are various Rune Farming Methods and Exploits, you can employ certain strategies to get yourself these utilitarian in-game resources as well. Fast, simple, and nothing but straightforward.
If things ever get tough when you’re exploring different regions and trying to gather Somber Smithing Stones, make a friend tag along. But that is, of course, if you know how to immerse in co-op in Elden Ring. Oh, and don’t forget how you’ll need map fragments to unlock new areas and make helpful discoveries in this regard.
As for the looks of Eleonora’s Poleblade, what we have here is just on fleek. It’s basically what Darth Maul keeps to himself as he exercises his right of being a Sith Lord in the Star Wars franchise. The design of the weapon is exceptional and strikes fear into the heart of anyone who stands before it.
If you’re looking for a fun, powerful weapon with a possible character build around the Strength attribute, perhaps, don’t look any further than Eleonora’s Poleblade. It may have lower damage as compared to some of the other Twinblades in Elden Ring, but the pure utility that this armament offers isn’t anything to sleep on.
To talk about the weapon art of this death-meaning tool, the Bloodblade Dance is something genuinely menacing. When you initiate this unique skill, your character doles out a whole flurry of spinning, tornado-style attacks, thereby dancing to the rhythm of this surreal Twinblade.
You can even trigger an evasive maneuver at the end of the action sequence that pulls the player a bit behind and watches out for counter-punishing moves of the enemy in front. Terrific stagger damage and the added buff of both physical and fire damage application are two more incentives to get yourself Elenora’s Poleblade.
This one giant crusher of a weapon packs all the bells and whistles for someone who’s just starting out with Elden Ring and trying to experiment with different types of weaponry. Sure, the Twinblade in question is a bit more complicated than its counterparts, but once you start getting the hang of it, it’s over for your foes.
No matter if it’s Malenia that you need to best or the Fire Giant that needs toppling, players from across the globe report that Eleonora’s Poleblade carried them through thick and thin and almost always ascertained destined doom for human players and AI enemies alike.
Now that you’re all caught up regarding the basics of this noteworthy Poleblade, let us get right down to the heart of this article. The next section will discuss the exact method that you can use to obtain the Elden Ring Eleonora’s Poleblade in the game with no further ado.
How to Get Eleonora’s Poleblade
Eleonora’s Poleblade doesn’t warrant the player to go through extravagant questlines that end up with a terrifying boss fight. While this indeed was a slight nod to the Fia questline in Elden Ring, it’s safe to say that the armament in question is relatively easily obtained.
However, there are a couple of steps that you need to go through in order to get this tip-top Twinblade effectively. By the time you’re done with this endeavor and you finally have the Elden Ring Eleonora’s Poleblade in your hands, watch your enemies as they bow down to you and cower in fear.
All things considered, the Twinblade in question does make you take on a request of an eerie NPC. Somewhere along the completion of the side-mission, you come toe-to-toe against the Violet Bloody Finger. Dispatch this godforsaken enemy for a chance to get this weapon drop.
We’re going to break down all that you need to know about the main steps involved here, so you can acquire the Eleonora’s Poleblade without too much of a struggle. The following sections are going to include instructions in a chronological order, so do try your best following them to the best of your ability for favorable results.
Acquire the Two Halves of the Dectus Medallion in Full
Acquiring the Dectus Medallion in full is one of the very first steps that you’ll have to go through in order to get yourself this dragon of a weapon in Elden Ring. Medallions are one of the many key items in the game that allow you to unlock newer sections of the Lands Between.
This scenario is pretty much similar to the Haligtree Secret Medallion that grants you access to a secret area in Elden Ring called Consecrated Snowfield. Just to give you a reminder though, you hoist the Haligtree Secret Medallion at the Grand Lift of Rold that otherwise gets you through to the Mountaintops of the Giants region.
Anyhow, the Dectus Medallion is a different story and is imperative for you to obtain right at the starting segments of the game. This key item is split into two halves and is scattered across the Lands Between in two distinct yet easily approachable locations.
One of these places is spotted as Fort Haight on the map while the other is known as Forth Faroth inside Greyoll’s Dragonbarrow. If you’d like step-by-step instructions with screenshots on how to get yourself the two pieces of the Dectus Medallion, check out our curated guide on the Elden Ring Dectus Medallion.
Acquiring the Dectus Medallion is simply one part of this multi-faceted affair. After getting yourself this crucial quest item, continue reading from the next section to find out what to do next.
Locate and Interact With Bloody Finger Hunter Yura
The next step in line that pertains to picking up the Eleonora’s Poleblade Elden Ring revolves around locating a special NPC in the Lands Between. Without this forthcoming figure, you’ll struggle to proceed with the questline at hand. The individual we’re on about goes by the name of Bloody Finger Hunter Yura.
Evidently, this man hunts down Bloody Fingers. Whether he does that using ranged weapons or simply by employing some of the best incantations in Elden Ring, the figure is devoted to the noble cause, judging from his discourse.
Bloody Finger Hunter Yura is located underneath a sizable bridge-like structure standing nearby a campfire. His exact whereabouts can be determined by heading northwest from the Agheel Lake South Site of Grace in the Lands Between.
Looking at the scenario from a different perspective, Yura’s location is nearby The First Step Site of Grace, which is quite the most initial area of the game right after you step foot out of the tutorial and into the in-game world. Just head east from The First Step until you come across the bridge-like space.
Check out the following screenshot for a visual explanation of where to go from here. We do realize that traversal in Elden Ring isn’t possible without your trusty spectral steed, so make sure you know how to summon a horse early on.
Make haste toward the area and get close to the campfire section. If you’ve been playing like normal up until now, Yura is bound to be standing in the section awaiting your arrival to send you on a small-scale quest. However, there is a possibility that the NPC won’t be where he is supposed to.
If you arrive at the designated area and Yura is not there, fret not. This just means that you’ve probably taken care of something ahead of time. Keep on reading from the next section if you couldn’t have your first encounter with the NPC here.
On the contrary, if Yura is already present, speak to the man and go through his dialogue. He’ll warn you not to venture into a nearby lake if you’re not looking into meddling around with death.
However, we’ll do the exact opposite. This is where we end the second section of the Elden Ring Eleonora’s Poleblade. Let’s get on with what to do next.
Head to the Lake Near Murkwater Cave and Slay Bloody Finger
The next step in line is to head to the lake near the Murkwater Cave Site of Grace, but make sure you don’t go around the area and approach the route in the straight direction. This area of interest where you have to proceed subsequently after meeting up with Yura lies in the north direction. Check out the following screenshot for more.
Call your magical Torrent and gallop across the area to the lake. Upon approaching the section and proceeding forward, you’ll soon be invaded by Bloody Finger Nerijus. This NPC is why Yura was warning us not to venture into the lake.
Little does he know that we sport some of the best weapons in Elden Ring, capable of laying waste to most those who stand before us. Some players have even acquired the all mighty Comet Azur spell at this point in the game, thereby making it meaningless for anyone telling us to watch out. It’s them who needs to care for themselves.
After cutting down Nerijus for good, continue reading from the next section. You should be able to proceed just fine, regardless of whether you met Bloody Finger Hunter Yura earlier or not.
Talk to Yura and Gain Access to the Raya Lucaria Academy
From here on out, we’ll be heading into an entirely different section of the map with its own novely and other unique elements. However, Yura has to be interacted with before we set out for that matter. Do this by heading until the end of the lake where you killed Bloody Finger Nerijus.
You’ll be led into a constricted pathway down to a ruined section of the place. Yura will be standing nearby. Talk to him and receive his warning (sigh) yet again. This time though—we’ll admit—the threat that he talks about is a bit more concerning. Yura speaks of a dragon lurking in another lake in a different part of the map.
Don’t lose your breath. It’s not the Dragonlord Placidusax that Yura is going on about—thank heavens. It’s just the Glintstone Dragon Smarag who is otherwise a formidable opponent waiting in his slumber to hookclaw you down. Now on to the more demanding part of this scenario.
You have to gain access to the Raya Lucarian Academy in Elden Ring, the main boss fight of which is housed by Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon. This region is located far in the northwest section of the Elden Ring map. You might have come across it already, depending on your story or side-quest progression.
With that said, it’s pointless to get to Raya Lucaria Academy without acquiring the Academy Glintstone Key first. And just check out the coincidence here for a mere moment. This key that we need to obtain rests right in the confines of the Glintstone Dragon Smarag, exactly inside the lake that Yura warned us about earlier.
Check out the following screesnhot for the location of the Glintstone Dragon in the Lands Between. For reference, we’ve indicated the location of the Academy Town Gate Site of Grace as well, which is what you can use a starting point for this venture.
Make your way to the location of the Glintstone Dragon Smarag by following the waypoint designated above. When you get there, it’ll be easy to spot a vastly open lakeside area. Lurk beyond that and you’ll soon find our fire-breathing foe with the Paladin build in Elden Ring.
Want to know the funny part? You actually have no need of fighting this dragon, unless, of course, you’ve got something like the Rivers of Blood and are looking for a quality challenge. It’s possible to simply sneak around the Glintstone Dragon and grab the Academy Glintstone Key that we’re longing for.
Look for a den sort of place in the area. You’ll find the key near a corpse. Pillage the remains of the latter to dig out the key in-game item. Check out the following screenshot for a visual illustration of the key. Oh, and make sure you’re sporting one of the best armor sets in Elden Ring to absorb the dragon’s thrashing and safely make your way back.
We now have to make haste back to the Raya Lucaria Town area. A quick and easy way to do that is by backtracking your steps and getting to the Academy Town Gate Site of Grace. From there, it’ll be much easier for you to get where you need to rather than meddling around exploring on your own.
The screenshot given below should be replicated on your end. Place the waypoint as shown in the map and do your level best to follow it. This should be a plain enough affair, given that you’re summoning Torrent and galloping across the map on it.
From the Academy Gate Town Site of Grace, therefore, place the waypoint as you can comprehend from the image above. As soon as you do that, traverse the area and get to the placed map marker with the help of your horse. You should be seeing a staircase leading up to somewhere once you arrive at the place.
Go up the stairway until you reach the top of it. Don’t be mindful of the surrounding enemies in the area. They’re little fodder that can be ignored at will. When you arrive at the surface, take a right and observe an extremely creepy atrocity awaiting your arrival. Again, make short work of giving the ugly wretch any attention.
After going right, therefore, keep heading straight until you observe a blue-colored seal. It’s possible to spot this distinct section from far out, so do keep your eyes peeled. As soon as you approach the seal, press the “Event Action” button to interact with the doorway. You’ll shortly get teleported to the other side that way.
Great going so far! You’re almost at the end of the whole Elden Ring Eleonora’s Poleblade affair. Keep on reading from the next section to find out what to do after getting through to the other side.
Help Yura Cut Down Bloody Finger Ravenmount Assassin
Using the aforementioned seal will take you straight to the top of the Raya Lucaria Academy. When the screen stops loading and you’re thrown back into the game after the transition, the “Liurnia of the Lakes” title strip will appear. However, your work is far from over.
Make haste to the center of the area you’re teleported to and take a right. You’re bound to observe another seal in that direction. Call your horse and get ready to mount the hearty horse. Go straight from the seal until the very end of the bridge where you can observe a break. From there, examine a spot of blood on the floor.
This is a telltale indication of someone asking for a summon. Interact with the sign and you’ll be asked whether you want to be summoned by Yura, Hunter of Bloody Fingers. Agree to the offer to get to the next step. Just make sure you’re saying “Yes” on the prompt screen.
As soon as you agree to help Yura out with his due diligence, you’ll be transported to the Bloody Finger Hunter’s world. There, it’ll be easy to spot a battle taking place between two entities. Rush to the area and start attacking Ravenmount Assassin. Do away with the Bloody Finger and make sure not to show any mercy.
After finishing off the bout with the vicious Bloody Finger, which, we’re guessing shouldn’t be any more than a brief fight, you will be taken back to your world. A title strip will also surface on the screen, saying that the Bloody Finger Ravenmount Assassin has been defeated.
Killing off the NPC does get you a fair bit of rewards, including the Raptor of the Mists Ash of War skill. While the latter isn’t up there with the Hoarfrost Stomp Ash of War, it certainly is something. With that said, it’s now time to get into the next phase of this questline.
Speak With Yura Again and Set Out to Find the Second Church of Marika
After you get taken back to your world after fending off the Ravenmount Assassin, Yura will be standing exactly to your right when you spawn back into the game. Make sure to take a good look around for the best results afterward. Go up to the menacing Bloody Finger slayer and engage in a dialogue.
This is when Yura will first thank you for the assistance and then nudge you the right way, so we can finally get our hands on Eleonora’s Poleblade Elden Ring. He’ll tell you about the Second Church of Marika—a distant location situated in the northmost corner of the Lands Between. Check out the screenshot below for more.
This may look intimidating at first, but don’t worry just yet. To close in on the Second Church of Marika as best as possible, all you need to do is teleport to the Grand Lift of Dectus. If you haven’t been here before, you’ll have to venture to it yourself. Simply head northeast from the Liurnia of the Lakes region and you’ll get there in no time.
Keep going straight from Bellum Highway and you’ll soon come across the Grand Lift of Dectus. Hoist the Dectus Medallion that you collected earlier at the lift to get through to the next area. Once done, head straight on until you get to the Second Church of Marika. This is nothing but a cake-walk process, given that you do it correctly.
On a side note though, somewhere along this scenic route, you’ll come across this massive nod to the Berserk anime series. Props to the developers of the game to include such a striking element from what appears to be one of the world’s most popular anime franchises.
If you’re looking to kindle the spirit of Guts and plow through enemies in all your glory, check out our curated guide on the best Greatsword build in the Lands Between. You’re bound to manifest the power of Guts by the time you’re done tweaking your character.
In addition to just this point of significance though, this particular area also marks the fact that the Second Church of Marika is quite nearby. Head straight from this area and you’ll visualize the church at a lower level from where you’re standing. Approach it to complete this section of the quest.
Do Eleonora to Death and Acquire the Poleblade
This is the end of the line for you, fellow Tarnished. After arriving at the Second Church of Marika, you’ll notice Yura fallen to the ground, murmuring that he’s no longer a match for Eleonora. Sure you’re not, but guess who is? The one who wields the power to equip some of the best Remembrance weapons in Elden Ring.
Talking to Yura will surprisingly add the Nagakiba katana to your inventory, but that’s not all. In no more than a moment’s time, you’re bound to be invaded by the Violet Bloody Finger Eleonora. She’s a slick woman who knows how to use her strengths, so make sure you’re bringing your level best to the table.
Plainly put, you need to kill Eleonora to get yourself Eleonora’s Poleblade. There are no other workarounds to this we’re afraid. Perhaps, check out some of the best Arcane weapons in Elden Ring to pick up if you’d like to keep a firm distance between you and your foe and rain hellfire from afar.
After doing away with her, you’ll receive a Furlcalling Finger Remedy, a Purifying Crystal Tear (not a Mimic Tear), and, of course, the one thing that we were after for all this while now—Eleonora’s Poleblade. Enjoy your newly acquired armament by testing it out on nearby foes, or maybe go on to achieve one of the endings in Elden Ring.
That’s about it for learning how to get Eleonora’s Poleblade in Elden Ring. We hope that you’ll enjoy the procedure in-between as much as we did on our first playthrough. Before we conclude the article though, let us talk about some of the best tips and tricks that can help you have one whale of a time with this Twinblade.
Tips on Using Eleonora’s Poleblade Effectively
While Eleonora’s Poleblade is pretty fire on its own, there’s no harm in taking its level leaps and bounds above its base statistics. To do that though, you need to employ a fair bit of time and effort, but don’t worry at all. We’re here to walk you through what’s necessary to do with this Twinblade and what to avoid.
Upgrade the Weapon With Somber Smithing Stones
This goes without saying, but one of the first things that you should look toward when acquiring the Twinblade in question is to upgrade it to higher levels. This, of course, isn’t possible without the help of some Somber Smithing Stones and you’ll have to venture out into the terrors of the Lands Between for it.
While that might be a bit of a stretch, it’s almost certain that once you start playing the game more often, you’re bound to come across more and more Somber Smithing Stones to pick up and apply to your equipment. Take the Poleblade to the highest level for the best, most vicious results.
Use the Poleblade’s Weapon Art Strategically
Many users have come together to regard Eleonora’s Poleblade as an S-tier weapon that’s just second to none. To cast a lens on its unique weapon art, for a moment, is to talk about the armament’s greatest strength. The Bloodblade Dance is perfect for inflicting lightning-quick strikes in fast succession.
When you combine that efficiency with the “Bleed” passive status effect of the weapon, you do get yourself one monster of a weapon. The number of hits the Poleblade lands increases your chances of filling up the “Bleed” status bar in full. Explain it to us then—you don’t miss out on something like this, do you?
Pair the Poleblade With the Godskin Peeler
It’s very much possible to dual-wield weapons in Elden Ring with not only just one but two different weapon types. The same goes for the Dual Katana build and the Starscourge Greatsword acquired only after trading the Remembrance of General Radahn.
Now, one of the best weapons that can be paired with Eleonora’s Poleblade is the Godskin Peeler, and this is yet another high-quality Twinblade that aspiring Tarnished warriors can pick up and wreak havoc with. Note: We’re not talking about the Godslayer Greatsword here. The latter is actually a part of the Elden Ring best swords.
Now, to get yourself the Godskin Peeler, you have to go out of your way and defeat the Godskin Duo, comprising Godskin Apostle and Godskin Noble—two distorted creatures with zero vision in life. Pair the Twinblade in question with Eleonora’s Poleblade and punish your foes like a devil out of hell.
Elden Ring features an extensive collection of weaponry that ranges from Katanas, Flails, and even Bows. You definitely won’t see a lackluster choice of armaments to pick up and brave the terrors of the Lands Between in-game. As for Eleonora’s Poleblade, this particular weapon is worth taking into account solely due to its worth in PvP settings, not to mention the reliability it boasts in other situations.
We have to hand it to the armament in question really—Eleonora’s Poleblade is a real monster in the Lands Between. You won’t find an armament as swift and deadly as this one, no matter the number of buffs, talismans, or other effects applied.
Naturally, a Twinblade-type weapon, this adroit tool of death is adept at making short work of anyone who dares stand before it. You’ve got the Dexterity and Arcane attributes to scale primarily with the weapon in question. Character builds revolving around those traits are definitely in for a treat.
Eleonora’s Poleblade not only offers best-in-class statistics for what it comes for but also causes huge amounts of blood loss buildup faster than any other armament in Elden Ring. We highly recommend pairing this armament with the Godskin Peeler, which also happens to be one of the best weapons in the game.
That way, you’ll be inflicting an insane amount of damage at a rapid pace with your dual-wield stance, as we’ve laid it out for you in one of the sections above. The cherry on top is the jump attack when you’ve got Eleonora’s Poleblade and the Godskin Peeler in the other.
Your character hurtles in the sky, plunging at your enemy, and swinging both of your Poleblades at full flight. This hereby causes a more or less instant depletion of your enemy’s health bar, and the same goes for bosses as well. Read our 25 Best Melee Weapons in Elden Ring and dominate any hand-to-hand combat scenarios in the game.
There’s one more thing in your control that can possibly heighten the combo of Eleonora’s Poleblade and the Godskin Peeler even more—a Seppuku. There is a bevy of Seppukus dispersed all over the Lands Between that you can collect using our guide on Elden Ring Seppuku Location.
In essence, it is an Ash of War skill that can be applied to any armament. What it basically does is elevate your attack power and increase your chances of inflicting the Blood Loss status effect on your enemies. Take it from us. An armament combination of a Seppuku-laden Godskin Peeler and Eleonora’s Poleblade is a force to be reckoned with.
Your foes definitely don’t want to be on the business end of this versatile union of tip-top weaponry, we can guarantee that. As for acquiring the Poleblade in question, you have to defeat a particular NPC invader called Eleonora, Violet Bloody Finger who spawns near the Second Church of Marika area.
Finding Eleonora isn’t a cakewalk, especially if you’re a new player. That’s why we decided to put together this special write-up to help aspiring beginners get their hands on a surreal piece of weaponry fairly early on. Do let us know down in the comments section if you found this guide useful for your cause.
As always, eXputer wishes you good luck!
