Ways to Get Nagakiba in Elden Ring

Nagakiba is an early-game weapon in Elden Ring, given by the Bloody Finger Hunter Yura. This long Katana comes with pierce damage and helps with bleed build-up. You must follow the Yura questline to get the Nagakiba katana in Elden Ring. Keep reading to learn how to do so:

  • Spawn at Agheel Lake South Site of Grace and turn towards the west. You’ll see a large structure far away, which looks like an arch. Head there and you’ll see Yura standing under the camp.
  • Talk with Yura and exhaust his dialogues. He’ll instruct you to go and defeat an invading NPC called Nerijus near the Murkwater Cave. Head to the location mentioned on the map and defeat the invading Nerijus.
  • Once defeated, head straight to the end of the pathway and talk with a relocated Yura to progress the questline to receive Nagakiba in the Elden Ring.
  • With the first half of the questline complete, there are two things you can do from here.
  • Spawn at Agheel South Lake Site of Grace to start tracking nagakiba in Elden Ring
  • Go under this marked structure to meet Yura, progressing through the quest to receive Nagakiba in Elden RIng
  • Go Near the marked location at Agheel Lake to get invaded. Defeat the invader to progress the questline

Continued with Yura’s Questline

Once you have defeated Nerijus, you can keep continuing Yura’s quest line and get the Elden Ring Nagakiba. You also receive Eleonora’s Poleblade and the Purifying Crystal Tear. Follow the steps below to do so:

  • Head over to Raya Lucaria academy. Enter the structure through the South Gate if you are visiting for the first time. Otherwise, spawn at the Main Academy Gate Site of Grace.
  • Once in the middle, look northeast and keep heading towards the edge of the bridge. You’ll see a red summon sign in the middle of this bridge. Refer to the map below. Interact with it to invade and defeat Bloody Finger Ravenmouth Assassin. Talk with Yura and progress through the storyline.
  • Head to the second church of Marika at Altus Plateau to find Yura wounded on the ground. He’ll eventually die, and you’ll get invaded by Eleonora.
  • Once you defeat Eleonora, revisit the second church of Marika in Elden Ring to find Nagakiba out here, lying on the ground.
  • Head to Raya Lucaria Academy, at the Main Academy Gate and head to the location mentioned to invade and progress the storyline
  • head to Second Church of marika to find Yura near his death, and get invaded by Eleonora

Did Not Continue Yura’s Questline

If you don’t want to continue with Yura’s questline and still want the Nagakiba in Elden Ring, keep progressing through the game. Once you reach the mountaintop of the giants, you’ll see that Shabriri has taken over Yura’s body.

Once that has happened, go to Yura’s camp west of the Agheel Lake South Site of Grace. There, you’ll find the Nagakiba Katana lying on the ground. I chose this outcome because I didn’t want to continue the quest.

Return back to Yura's Camp to receive the Katana
