Elden Ring gives the players freedom of choice to equip whatever weapon they want as long as they meet the stats. Finding the ideal weapon for your class and build can be a difficult task since the world of Elden Ring is massive. Various weapons are spread throughout the map and you have to find them.
Fortunately, one of the best Katana available in the game can be found relatively early on in the game. These weapons are optimal for Samurai and Vagabond classes. With that said, let’s dive right in and take a look at how to get Meteoric Ore Blade Katana in Elden Ring.
Elden Ring: How to Get Meteoric Ore Blade Katana Early
This is one of the best Katana as it has the second-highest base damage out of all other Katanas. Plus, it deals both Physical and Magical damage, offering more diversity to the player. Considering that this weapon is superb, you might think that you can only find this in the later stages of the game. However, the good news is that you can get this relatively early on.
If you are having difficulties taking out the bosses or the enemies seem strong, you should get this weapon to make life easier for yourself. Hopefully, this convinced you to get the Katana. If you are curious to know how you can get it, the next section will take a look at that!
Enter the Dragon-Burnt Ruins
The first step you need to follow is to go to the Dragon-Burnt Ruins. This is an early game location that can be found in Limgrave when you are exploring. From the First Step of Grace, go to the right side, and eventually, you’ll come across this area. Don’t worry, it is easy to find.
Also, be careful when roaming in this area as a dragon can spawn if you linger for too long. We suggest that you use your horse – Torrent – and gallop along the lake to enter the ruins. Make your way down the stairs and enter the cellar.
Clear out the rats that are infesting the area. Once you have done so, open the door and you’ll see a treasure chest. This is a trap but we will use that to our advantage. Open the chest and you’ll be teleported to the Sellia Crystal Tunnel situated in Caelid. Keep in mind that this is a high-level area so it’s best to avoid the enemies for now.
Exit the Sellia Crystal Tunnel
Once you are in the tunnel, exit it by running past all the enemies you see. If you go to this area in the early game, you won’t be able to kill a single enemy as they have a lot of HP. Plus, they deal tons of damage as well.
The way out is quite straightforward so run past every enemy and exit the tunnel. We suggest that you activate the Site of Grace on the way out to make it easier for you to fast-travel to this location.
Reach the Caelid Waypoint Ruins
After exiting the tunnel, use your mount to reach the Caelid Waypoint Ruins dungeon as seen in the image above. It isn’t that far from the tunnel so it shouldn’t take long. Make sure that you avoid all enemies that you find on the way. Also, we do not recommend going on foot.
When you reach the ruins, once again need to locate stairs that lead to a cellar. Try to avoid the enemies in the cellar but you might have to fight a few of them. Make your way through the cellar and you’ll find a chest behind a door. Open it and you will find the Meteoric Ore Blade.
Stats and Ability
As for the stats, this weapons is extremely good, especially for Dex users. To properly use it, you must have 15 STR, 14 DEX, and 18 INT. Plus, the scaling is quite good as well. It has a D in STR, E in DEX, and D in INT. For a weapon that you can get super early in the game, this is amazing.
This Katana can deal 112 Physical Attack damage and 72 Magic Damage. When it comes to defense, the weapon has 50 Physical Defense, 32 Fire Defense, 45 Magic Defense, 31 Holy Defense, and 31 Lightning Defense.
Also, keep in mind that this Katana cannot be infused with the Ashes of War and you need the Somber Smithing Stones to upgrade it.
The best part about this blade is its ability – Gravitas. This is a regular skill that require 13 Focus Points (FP) to use. You can use this ability to pull enemies towards you and deal a good amount of damage. The area of effect is quite large and it can stagger most enemies.
