The Stone-Sheathed Sword in Shadow of the Erdtree is a fascinating weapon with unique transformation abilities. This guide will explain how to get Stone-Sheathed Sword in Shadow of the Erdtree and the steps needed to transform it into the Sword of Light or Sword of Darkness.

Finding the Stone-Sheathed Sword

First Altar Location

You can find the Stone-Sheathed Sword at three different altars across the Land of Shadow. The first altar you interact with will give you the Stone-Sheathed Sword. The other two altars allow you to transform it into the Sword of Light or the Sword of Darkness.

Fog Rift Catacombs

The most challenging altar to reach is in the Fog Rift Catacombs, which you can access right after starting the Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. To find this altar:

  1. Cross Ellac Greatbridge until you’re outside Castle Ensis.
  2. Turn left and head downhill through the valley.
  3. Enter the grassy lowland area to find the entrance to Fog Rift Catacombs.
  4. Navigate through the catacombs to a long room with a spike trap on the ceiling and a raised pedestal at the end.
  5. Avoid the spike trap by hiding in the alcoves, then reach the pedestal.

Obtaining the Sword

Stand on the railing at the end of the raised altar and wait for the spike trap to drop. Jump into the small square alcove quickly. Wait for the spike trap to rise, then jump out and land on the platform at the top. Open the chest containing Ash of War: Blink Bolt. When the spike trap drops again, jump onto it and reach another room on the right side. Here, you'll find the altar with the Stone-Sheathed Sword.

Transforming the Stone-Sheathed Sword

Ruins of Unte

The second altar is in the Ruins of Unte. Use the stone coffin in Shadow Keep to get to the Castle Watering Hole Site of Grace. Throw a Hefty Furnace Pot at the inactive Furnace Golem blocking the entrance to the Ruins of Unte. If you've already picked up the Stone-Sheathed Sword, this altar will be an Altar of Darkness.

Ancient Ruins of Rauh

The third altar is in the Ancient Ruins of Rauh. From the Rauh Ancient Ruins, West Site of Grace, head into the interior ruins and up the ramp. Navigate through the ruins until you reach an outdoor area with a gazebo. Continue past the gazebo through scarlet rot until you see a broken bridge pointing to a stone tower. Cross the invisible bridge to reach the tower. Inside, you'll find the altar.


By following these steps, you can successfully obtain and transform the Stone-Sheathed Sword. Remember, visiting the most challenging altar first can save you time and effort. With this powerful weapon, you'll be well-equipped for the battles ahead in Shadow of the Erdtree.
