Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree: How to Find the Falx?

The Shadow of the Erdtree DLC for Elden Ring introduces quite a lot of new weapons and weapon categories and we know this can be quite overwhelming at times. Finding all of the good things in the dangerous world of SotE isn't that easy. Among these new weapons is the Falx. This weapon is a paired curved sword with impressive damage, quick attacks, and a decent Bleed build-up rating. If you enjoy Bleed builds, the Falx is definitely the right weapon for you.


What is the Falx in Elder Ring SotE


The Falx is a new curved sword similar to the Serpent-God's Curved Sword and the Falchion. Its design features long, sickle-like blades, perfect for fast-paced dueling. The weapon's speed and aggressiveness compensate for its short range. It can be upgraded to +10 with Somber Smithing Stones, but it cannot be buffed with spells or consumable items.

Stat Requirements

  • Strength (STR): 12
  • Dexterity (DEX): 15
  • Intelligence (INT): 0
  • Faith (FAITH): 0
  • Arcane (ARC): 0

Weapon Skill: Revenger's Blade

What makes the Falx special in Elden Ring is the unique Ash of War - Revenger's Blade. It quickly closes gaps and slashes the enemies. 


How to Obtain the Falx?

There are two ways to get the Falx in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree. In both cases, you'll have to run into the NPC Hornsent.

Method One: Rauh Ancient Ruins

  1. Follow Hornsent's questline.
  2. Hornsent will invade you at the Rauh Ancient Ruins, just before entering the arena to fight Romina.
  3. Defeat Hornsent to obtain the Falx and his armor set.


Method Two: Cleansing Chamber Anteroom in Enir-Illim

  1. If you, for some reason, miss Hornsent’s quest, you'll have another chance at the Cleansing Chamber Anteroom.
  2. Invade Needle Knight Leda's world.
  3. Defeat Hornsent, Leda, and Dryleaf Dane to get the Falx.



The Falx is a great new weapon in the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC for Elden Ring. By following Hornsent’s questline and defeating him at key points, players can add this powerful curved sword to their arsenal. It slashes fast, it triggers Hemorrhage procs, and it's an overall decent choice for any build.
