To get the Rakshasa’s Great Katana, players have to defeat a hidden boss named Rakshasa, located deep within the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC. 

This boss is located deep within the Shadow Keep and the path to it is a challenging one so be prepared and good luck.

One of the game’s popular YouTubers, Ziostorm even posted about this weapon and called it an easy favorite for him.

Many players in the Elden Ring Reddit have praised its balanced moveset and devastating attack power, making it a versatile choice for various combat scenarios.

The weapon’s unique Ash of War ability, which allows for swift, sweeping attacks, is particularly effective in crowd control situations, giving it an edge over many other weapons introduced in the DLC.

In PvP, the weapon shines with its hyper armor and formidable attack power, allowing users to withstand and retaliate against multiple opponents.

Its ability to poise through attacks and deliver devastating blows makes it a favorite among players who enjoy high-risk, high-reward combat styles.

For players focusing on builds, the optimal use of Rakshasa’s Great Katana involves investing heavily in dexterity, with strength as a secondary attribute. 

This weapon is one of many that fans have flocked to in the new DLC. The new additions seem to be a mixture of balanced damage and design.

Despite its advantages, Rakshasa’s Great Katana is not without its challenges. Some players have pointed out the penalty to counterattacks and the necessity to learn its timing for optimal use.

The weapon also passively reduces your damage negation by 10% while you are attacking. While this is a slight risk, the game has several damage negation buffs that are widely used and should cancel it out.

If you find the DLC to be difficult with this weapon, then fret not as there are plenty other options to pick from.

The community’s response to Rakshasa’s Great Katana has been overwhelmingly positive. 

Its combination of aesthetics, damage output, and versatile moveset make it a standout choice in the DLC.
