Where to find the Bloody Slash Ash of War in Elden Ring

What does Bloody Slash do in Elden Ring?

The Bloody Slash in Elden Ring makes a sword deadly by doubling its attack power.

The Bloody Slash Ash of War can be used on any sword except a Colossal Weapon. The weapons of course should have the ability to have an Ash of War applied to it. Some special weapons in Elden Ring don’t allow that. When you apply it to a sword, the sword will splash blood whenever its effect takes place.

It will cost you 6 FP for each bloody slash and it will also cost you some of your health. The Ash of War scales with Arcane. While it deals a decent amount of damage and some blood loss buildup, there are better options out there than Bloody Slash Ash of War like Rivers of Blood and Uchigatana for bleed setup.

To use the Bloody Slash effect, if you are on PC, hold “Shift” and then left-click. If you are on Xbox, you will use “left-trigger” and on PlayStation, “L2”.
