Elden Ring Nagakiba [Location & Stats]

The following are the three ways to get Nagakiba according to my experience.

The Elden Ring Nagakiba Katana is among the greatest, particularly for the early-game content. It is suitable for a little more defensive playstyle. In comparison to the Uchigatana beginning Katana, it has a blade that is very lengthy and causes more blood loss to accumulate in the Elden Ring.

Key Takeaways
  • Nagakiba: Katana Class melee weapon with an extended blade causing increased blood loss in Elden Ring.
  • Acquire through:

    2. Kill Yura and loot from his corpse.
    3. Obtain from Yura’s Camp.

Obtain the Nagakiba Katana in Elden Ring by defeating NPC “Yura, Hunter of Bloody Fingers” in Murkwater Cave. Prior to encountering Yura, eliminate another NPC near Murkwater Cave’s entrance, triggering an invasion by Bloody Finger Nerijus.

Defeat Bloody Finger Nerijus, then proceed to the northern end of the river, where a bridge is located. Beneath the bridge, confront Bloody Finger Hunter Yura, wielding the Nagakiba Katana. Once Yura is defeated, claim the Nagakiba Katana from his body.

Loot the Katana from Yura’s Camp

Secure the Nagakiba Katana before encountering Shabriri at the Mountaintops of the Giants to ensure the completion of Yura’s questline for this weapon.

Discover the Nagakiba Katana at Yura’s camp near the Place of Grace, accessed through the Seaside Ruins. Once at the camp, find the Katana next to the fire.

The Nagakiba katana is excellent, especially towards the middle of the Elden Ring. This katana increases damage by applying an additional blood loss effect to its victim in addition to dealing good physical damage to it. Of all the Katanas in the Elden Ring, it has the greatest reach, making it an extremely potent and versatile weapon.

The Nagakiba Katana has the following stats:

I would recommend using the Keen affinity to receive an A-tier scaling for Dexterity at 24 or above. Moreover, the Nagakiba’s Ash of War can be modified. I recommend Seppuku for increased blood loss.

That concludes my guide on the Elden Ring Nagakiba Katana. Killing Yura and looting his corpse are the easiest ways to obtain the Nagakiba Katana. Nonetheless, if you choose to pursue him and finish his quest, you will receive this sword as a reward.
