Elden Ring has a ton of flashy and crazy weapon arts for you to locate. From the great ranged attacks to the charged eruptions, you’ll be able to find something to fit your play style. However, with all of these Arts of War, you might have trouble finding one that fits your build. The Carian Grandeur weapon skill might be one of the slower ones, but happens to be absolutely insane if you can pull it off. Because of that, we’re going to tell you where you can find this useful Art of War.
Where to Find Carian Grandeur in Elden Ring
Carian Grandeur is located in the Caria Manor in northern Liurnia of the Lakes. Enter the manor, then head to the upper catwalks by traversing the stonework. Then, from the upper cliffs, drop down on the point of the map shown in the above image. On this ledge will be a corpse with a purple glow on it. That corpse has Carian Grandeur, a massive intelligence-scaling Ash of War with a large charge time. You can also find it attached to a Somber weapon in Northwest Liurnia, in the chest of a troll convoy.
Caria Manor is accessible as long as you’ve defeated the first boss of the game, Godrick the Grafted, as well as his buddy Margit. However, to get to the top of Liurnia and into Caria Manor, you’ll likely need to be geared and leveled up enough to survive the approach. We recommend level 60 before coming here, as the enemies within the manor can be annoying to fight. Fire is extremely effective against all of them, however, so bring some Fire Pots.
The Carian Grandeur ability itself is an area-of-effect sword smash in front of you. It has a medium charge time, but can be charged two extra stages to deal massive damage and increase the size of the impact. This makes it great for waiting around corners for enemies, or for punishing an enemy that is staggering.
This ability is also available in the Carian Knight’s Sword. This weapon is found in Liurnia of the Lakes, in the northwest, located in a Troll convoy. You can access it by killing one troll and then hopping in the back of the cart. It’s an Intelligence-scaling Sword that scales off of Strength, Dexterity, and Intelligence, but scales best with Strength.
