Weapons & Ash of War

Scavenger's Curved Sword, it's a pretty basic sword that you can pick up from a dead body. Mt.Gelmir is where you'll find the Scavenger's Curved Sword. After reaching First Mt.Gelmir Campsite Grace, head northwest through a ruined campsite and up a hill to a stone bridge. Cross the bridge to reach a ladder-accessible campsite. The Scavenger's Curved Sword can be looted from a corpse at the bottom of the ladder leading to Mt.Gelmir. Its initial damage isn’t great but it does a little bleed damage, be sure upgrade it to 25, so you are going to need two of these. So if you are in New Game Plus, there may be a chance to get the second one, if not, you can either duplicate it or trade with others. Set the affinity to occult on both swords, this will scale them with arcane. 

Once you've got your two swords, stick an ash of war on each of them, it’s recommended to put Seppuku on the left and Bloodhound's Step on the right.


For the armor, you are going to want the White Mask, which increases damage whenever blood loss occurs, you can get this by doing the White-Faced Varre questline and then eventually fighting the invaders in the blood pools.

For the chest set, you are going to want to go for the Raptor's Black Feathers, this will boost your jump attack damage by 10%, and you can find this armor piece behind an illusory wall in Sage's Cave.  

For the hands and feet, just pick something that will give you the most amount of armor without causing you to fat rolling, such as the Maliketh's Armor. 


- Lord of Blood's Exultation: this increases attack power when there is blood loss in the vicinity, you can get it after defeating Esgar, Priest of Blood inside the Leyndell Catacombs.  

- Rotten Winged Sword Insignia: this greatly raises attack power with successive attacks, we are using two swords and the way you are going to using them will trigger this talisman every time you hit an enemy.

- Godskin Swaddling Cloth: it restores HP with successive attacks, which is the perfect when fighting enemies like Maliketh. You can find it in Spiritcaller's Cave, dropped by the Spirit-Caller Snail that summons the Godskin Apostle & Godskin Noble in a consecutive boss encounter.

- Claw Talisman: it enhances the damage output of jump attacks of all weapons by 15%, it is located in the Stormveil Castle.

Flask and Tears

For the Flask of Wondrous Physick, you'll be using Greenburst Crystal Tear, which boosts stamina, recovery speed, this will help you get more jumps in and more sword swings, but the most important Tear the one that really ties this all together is the Thorny Cracked Tear, which boosts successive attack power. 

Using all of this, you'll now be ready to take on Maliketh and rinse him in seconds, just pop your Wondrous Physick, and use Seppuku run in there, use a summon to take his attention away, then when you're ready jump and hit L1 for PS4/5 or LB for Xbox, after the second time you jump attack, all of your talismans, armor, and tears will begin working in harmony, each attack after that will stack more effects and drain more of the enemy's health, then Maliketh is defeated.
