One of the early Greatswords that players come across in Elden Ring is the Claymore. This weapon is for players that want to take the next step above the regular long sword and use something that hits nice and hard. The Claymore also comes with one of the more useful and stylish weapon Skills in the Lion’s Claw, which sees the player going a forward somersault before slamming down on their foes. Players that want to get their hands on this weapon will first need to know where to find it. This guide will show players where to find and get the Claymore Greatsword in Elden Ring.
How To Get The Claymore In Elden Ring
The Claymore is inside Castle Morne, the wartorn structure at the southernmost part of the Weeping Pennisula region south of the game’s starting area, Limgrave. Head south and cross the Bridge of Sacrifice to keep traveling south until you reach Castle Morne. You will know where the Castle is as a giant Iron Gollum is protecting it. Enter the location and take the elevator up to the courtyard. Climb the pile of corpses, the group of Misbegottens. Behind this pile is a pathway that you can see in the center picture below. Get onto that path and enter the door on the right to find a chest directly left of it. Inside this chest is where you will find the Claymore.
The Claymore is a regular weapon, meaning that it can be infused with different Ashes of War to help customize your playstyle and give the weapon different properties. Players that want to wield the greatsword will need to have their Strength at Level 16 and their Dexterity at Level 13, which is not too bad for a sword like this, making it an excellent choice for those early Strength builds.
Elden Ring is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
