Elden Ring: How To Get The Sacrificial Axe

To get the FP-restoring Sacrificial Axe in Elden Ring, Tarnished adventurers must search the southern half of the Weeping Peninsula for a Field Boss.

The Sacrificial Axe is a lightweight, short-range weapon in Elden Ring imbued with a passive buff that restores 4 FP from the enemy’s death. This axe is a handy tool as it doesn’t need to deal the killing blow to replenish FP. As a result, Tarnished adventurers can two-hand claws or a sword with the Sacrificial Axe in their off-hand and still receive FP from its passive bonus in Elden Ring.

The Sacrificial Axe’s FP restoration also stacks with other equipment, such as the Ancestral Spirit’s Horn Talisman. With both equipped, Tarnished can replenish up to 7 FP per kill. Several Tarnished have also discovered that the axe replenishes FP when a bloodstain’s red phantom of another player “dies.” This effect can be repeated infinitely off a single bloodstain. Furthermore, despite the weapon’s description regarding “FP restored upon slaying a foe,” any entity that dies near the player will regenerate their FP. For instance, during Radahn’s boss battle, the summonable spirits will grant the player 4 FP upon death, even though they aren’t a hostile entity.

To get the Sacrificial Axe in Elden Ring, Tarnished must defeat a Deathbird in the Weeping Peninsula. Unfortunately, this Elden Ring Field Boss spawns in a small clearing off the main path, which may cause many players to miss this boss.

To find this Deathbird, travel south from the Bridge of Sacrifice to Castle Morne Rampart’s Site of Grace. After going through the crumbled wall towards the Map Fragment, turn right and head up the rocky slope to reach a giant chunk of rubble lying near the outer walls. Down in the patch of grass below is where the Field Boss will spawn. Keep in mind that Deathbirds only emerge after nightfall, meaning that nothing will appear if Tarnished visit this area during the daytime.

Enemies within the Weeping Peninsula spawn at a relatively low level, particularly between Levels 20-30. Therefore, Tarnished who face this Deathbird after reaching Liurnia or Altus Plateau will likely be able to take down this Elden Ring Field Boss within less than a minute. On the other hand, those starting a new adventure may still find the beast somewhat challenging. Accordingly, one way to cheese this Deathbird would be to stand atop the giant chunk of rubble nearby and snipe the boss using arrows or Spells until it is dead. Once the creature has been defeated, Tarnished adventurers will receive the FP-restoring Sacrificial Axe in Elden Ring.
