Key Takeaway

Defeat Rykard, Lord of Blasphemy to receive his Remembrance. Take the Remembrance to Enia at the Roundtable Hold and exchange it for the Blasphemous Blade.

The Blasphemous Blade is an individualistically stylish and powerful weapon in Elden Ring. It scales equally with Strength, Dexterity, and Faith, making it a particularly versatile weapon. Its moveset is also powerful and easy to use. It’s great against common foes and bosses alike.

    Rykard, Lord of Blasphemy from Elden Ring.

    The first thing you’ll need to do is beat Rykard, the Lord of Blasphemy: the boss of the Volcano Manor. Make your way to the end of the Volcano Manor and you’ll find Rykard there waiting for you. He’s an intimidating boss, but the Serpent-Hunter Great Spear found in his arena will make short work of him.

    You’ll receive the Remembrance of the Blasphemous for defeating Rykard. This is the item you’ll need to obtain the Blasphemous Blade.

    Using the Remembrance of the Blasphemous to Get the Blasphemous Blade

    With Rykard’s Remembrance in your inventory, return to the Roundtable Hold and approach Enia. Use her to receive power from this Remembrance, then hover over the Remembrance of the Blasphemous. You’ll then find the option to obtain the Blasphemous Blade.

    Acquiring the Blasphemous Blade using the Remembrance of the Blasphemous in Elden Ring.

    Voila! That’s all you need to do to get the Blasphemous Blade in Elden Ring.

    However, remember that the Remembrance will let you choose between two items, and, after choosing one, you won’t be able to obtain the other until your next playthrough.

    With that, you’ve acquired Rykard’s red greatsword. It’s strong without being too slow and the skills attached to it are decent enough, especially against hordes of enemies. Have fun burning your enemies to ash.

    Speaking of ashes, be sure to make use of Spirit Ashes if you’re in a tight spot. The allies you can summon via Spirit Ashes can really help you out if you need a meat shield or a bit more damage output. Upgrading Spirit Ashes can let you bring out their true potential!
