If it was not already obvious, you need to defeat Maliketh, the Black Blade to get his weapon in Elden Ring.

Either fast travel or reach the Behind The Great Bridge Site of Grace in Crumbling Farum Azula. Then make your way west and follow the path south until you find some stairs.

The stairs will lead you to a ramp. Here, you can either go past the Draconic Tree Sentinel or take time out to defeat it as well.

The door at the end of the ramp will lead you to the Beast Clergyman. He is actually the first phase of the Maliketh boss fight in Elden Ring. You will face off Maliketh in his truth form in his second phase.

To defeat Maliketh, the Black Blade you need to summon Spirit Ashes, avoid his sword attacks and heal yourself using the Sacred Flask whenever your health gets low. You just have to balance between attacking and dodging his attacks and eventually you will be able to defeat that boss.

Once you have defeated the Maliketh, the Black Blade you will be transported back to the Leyndell, Ashen Capital.

The Boss will drop the Remembrance of the Black Blade and 220,000 Runes once you have defeated him. Now you can use the Remembrance of the Black Blade for trading with Enia at the Roundtable Hold.

Maliketh’s Black Blade is infused with a special skill called Destined Death that creates a powerful attack with multiple blades at the cost of 40 FP making it a great melee weapon to add to your inventory.
