Where to find Fire Knight's Greatsword in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree

To find the Fire Knight’s Greatsword, you must take on and defeat the Fire Knights who are wielding the sword. These knights are scattered throughout the Shadow Keep legacy dungeon in Scadu Altus. However, there is one location that can be easily accessed thanks to a shortcut to a nearby Site of Grace, making this farming experience a (hopefully) painless one.

Start by exploring Shadow Keep until you reach an area where you find a sword-wielding Fire Knight on your left and an enormous, descending staircase on your right. Head down the staircase until you reach a shortcut that you can open up, leading back to the Shadow Keep Main Gate Site of Grace.

Once you've opened up this handy shortcut, you can now easily reach this Fire Knight by traveling back to the Shadow Keep Main Gate Site of Grace if you need to reset the encounter. I also recommend using a Silver-Pickled Fowl Foot to increase your chances of having the weapon drop. And let's hope for some beginner's luck, right?

Fire Knight's Greatsword Scaling, Affinity, & Best Build in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree

The Fire Knight's Greatsword is a Colossal Sword which is already a huge advantage, making it one of the more powerful weapons in the game. It scales with Strength, Dexterity, and Faith, making it a surprisingly versatile weapon too. Its open Ash of War slot notes that it is blessed with a flame incantation, meaning a further flame imbuement will greatly increase the sword's power.

It therefore works particularly well with the Flame Spear or Flame Skewer Ashes of War. Once you've equipped one of these, you'll be plowing through mobs of enemies in one or two hits, making quick work of them.
