To get your hands on the Eclipse Shotel:
- Head to the Mountaintops of the Giants. Once you arrive in Castle Sol to the North, the weapon is almost within your grasp.
- Head straight into the castle, past the patrolling enemy, and up the wooden staircase. Once you’re at the top, head straight North for the archway ahead, being wary of the flying enemy that will attempt to swoop in from behind when you head into the open.
- Head up the stairs and run directly South, past all the enemies that will try and stop you. Watch out for the knight at the top of the stairs and head to the alter directly inside the chapel. Here, your Eclipse Shotel will be lying in wait for you!

- Start from the Castle Morne Rampart Site of Grace in the Weeping Peninsula. Follow the road heading south from the Bridge of Sacrifice, and you will get to this Site of Grace
- From this location, take the main road south.
- You’ll need to watch out for massive arrows fired by a giant to get in the front door, but the enemy isn’t difficult to defeat, as long as you have your horse! Rest at the Castle Morne Lift Site of Grace, then head up the nearby elevator.
- You’ll arrive in a courtyard full of enemies, but the good news is that you don’t have to fight many of them. Simply run straight through the yard, to the end, then turn right and up the ladder to the West.
- On top of the castle wall, cross the bridge ahead, then drop down to the Site of Grace to the South West, jumping to the grass below. From here, keep making your way down the castle, dropping down where possible until you’re finally at the water level.
- There’s another Site of Grace before your final drop down to the Jellyfish area, and you’ll be able to spot the Boss Gate to the South West.
- Inside, you’ll face off against Leonine Misbegotten, a boss who will drop your Grafted Blade Greatsword when defeated. Here’s a video guide to lead you to the boss fight.

Here’s our whopping 17-step guide to unlocking the Dark Moon Greatsword in Elden Ring!
The Dark Moon Greatsword is one of the most difficult weapons to unlock in Elden Ring. After all, you’ll need to complete a lengthy questline to unlock it, rather than just finding it around the map or defeating a boss.
However, it’s well worth your time.
Requirements: 16 STR, 11 DEX, 38 INT
Skill: Moonlight Greatsword
Where to Find Devourer’s Scepter
Players can obtain the Devourer’s Scepter by defeating Knight / Recusant Bernahls at any given point after finding him at the Warmaster’s Shack in northern Limgrave or by following his questline and defeating him when he invades in Crumbling Farum Azula.
You can follow Bernahl’s questline at Volcano Manor:
- Make your way to Altus Plateau and complete the assassination missions at the manor, talking to Bernahl each time and exhausting his dialogue. Eventually, you will get the Red Letter.
- Talk to the NPC again, and he’ll give you his own request. You can complete this before your final Volcano Manor mission, but either way you then won’t see Bernahl until near the end of the game.
- When you finally get to Crumbling Farum Azula in Elden Ring, you’ll get invaded by Recusant Bernahl. Defeating him here will give you not only the Devourer’s Scepter, but also a Blasphemous Claw which should help you defeat the next boss!
Despite its name, the Devourer’s Scepter is actually a Warhammer in Elden Ring. Its powerful skill allows the user to steal HP of all nearby enemies, making it one of the best Legendary Armaments in Elden Ring.
Requirements: 24 STR, 20 DEX, 25 FAI
Skill: Devourer of Worlds
