Where To Find The Winged Scythe In Elden Ring

Here is how you can get the Winged Scythe to become a reaper and slice through hordes of enemies in Elden Ring.

The Winged Scythe is one of the four Reapers found in Elden Ring. It is a deadly weapon that can be obtained early on in the game, making it the best option if players are looking for an early-game scythe.

The Winged Scythe does Holy damage and Slash attacks, making it one of the best Holy weapons for Faith builds in Elden Ring.

The following guide will explain where to find and how to get your hands on the Winged Scythe in Elden Ring.

Winged Scythe location in Elden Ring

The Winged Scythe is hidden in a chest located in a dark underground room of Tombsward Ruins of the Weeping Peninsula, just at the location marked on the map below.

Acquiring this reaper is pretty easy as you do not have to fight any boss or encounter any enemies on the way. In fact, the Winged Scythe can be obtained right after finishing the game’s tutorial.

Make your way to the center of the ruins. There you’ll find a staircase leading downwards. Although they appear to be daunting there is nothing to worry about. Take the stairs and reach down.

You’ll find yourself in a pitch-black hallway. If you look around, you’ll notice a small room at the far end of the hall. This is the room you’ve been looking for. Enter the room.

You’ll find a chest inside the room. Open it up! Inside the chest lies the devastating Winged Scythe.

How to use the Winged Scythe, Is It Any Good?

The weapon has a skill called Angel’s Wings by default that comes at a cost of 17 FP and does not need to be unlocked. Due to its unique skill, the Winged Scythe, unfortunately, cannot be imbued with Ashes of War.

The Angel’s Wings skill allows players to jump and infuse light into the armament’s wing blade before unleashing a slicing attack on the enemy. The white wings also hinder recovery attempts with a flask of tears.

The Winged Scythe is a popular PvP and players can run some fun builds with it as well. However, the weapon might not be the right choice for end game due to its holy damage as you will come across a lot of enemies that are resistant to Holy Damage at later stages of the game.
