Elden Ring – Butchering Knife I Bleed Wild Strikes Build Guide & Showcase / DEX

Butchering Knife is a Greataxe that scale primarily with Strength and Dexterity. What i like the most about this weapon is it’s reach and the capability to restores 1% health per hit, combine with wild strike ash of war make this weapon a great choice for Dexterity build to continuous inject blood lost build up to the enemy.


  • It has a lifesteal effect, restoring 1% of your health with each successful hit
  • I consider the range and weight are quite good for Greataxes type
  • Also infusible, make the Butchering Knife a versatile weapon to use

Wild Strikes Ash of War

  • As long as you have stamina, you can continously swing your weapon, make it a great choice to inject blood lost build up to the enemy and Restores 1% of your health per hit.
  • What i like about this skill is that it makes it difficult for enemies to go near you and make an attack as they will most likely get interrupted.


  • I’m not fan of it’s two-handed charge attacks, because they are quite short and difficult to land so I have to be very close to the enemy to make an attack.
