Where to find the Blade of Mercy Elden Ring talisman?

Now, let’s take a closer look at the location of Blade of Mercy Elden Ring talisman. Your search for the Blade of Mercy starts at the Gravesite Plain in the Realm of Shadow. Once you arrive, head north towards the ruins you see in the distance. These are the Scorched Ruins, where the talisman is hidden.

The enemies around these ruins are weak, so you should be able to reach the talisman without too much trouble. If you are having troubles getting past these enemies, well, you may want to practice your combat skills because they are relly not that hard. When you get to the north end of the ruins, find a narrow tower. Climb to the top of this tower to find a door. Open it, and inside you’ll see a treasure chest. Inside this chest is the Blade of Mercy. You can grab the Blade of Mercy Elden Ring talisman early in your adventure in the DLC.

What does the Blade of Mercy Elden Ring talisman give?

Now that you have the Blade of Mercy, you’ll want to know what it does. This talisman boosts your attack power every time you land a critical hit. This is especially useful for players who like fighting up close and often hit enemies critically.

The talisman has an interesting background. It used to be a weapon owned by Hornsent, a character in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree. He used it to end the suffering of a fellow traveler. Over time, the dagger broke and couldn’t be used as a weapon anymore. However, it gained a special power and became a talisman that increases attack power after critical hits. That is why you may want to obtain it at the very beginning.

The Blade of Mercy is also light, weighing only 0.3, so it won’t slow you down. You can land critical hits by sneaking up on enemies or breaking their guard and hitting them hard. With the Blade of Mercy, these attacks will be even more powerful.

The Blade of Mercy Elden Ring talisman is not just a powerful tool for boosting your damage. It’s also part of the deep stories in Elden Ring’s world. It is actually really nice to have this talisman at the very beginning of your adventure.
