The Black Steel Greathammer is a powerful weapon that can be found exclusively in Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. This hammer is perfect for those with a Strength/Faith hybrid build, as it requires STR – 25, DEX – 11, and FAI – 17 to wield. The weapon comes equipped with Ash of War: Endure, which increases your poise and absorptions by 45% when activated.

In addition to its powerful stats, the Black Steel Greathammer also has a unique guard-counter attack that creates a holy explosion. This makes it a great choice for players looking to deal with big attacks from tough bosses. The hammer can be upgraded to +25 with standard Smithing Stones, further increasing its power.

The item description of the Black Steel Greathammer reveals that it is a weapon of the Black Knights, servants of Messmer the Impaler. It is a greathammer made of black steel with gold embellishments and is blessed with an Erdtree Incantation. Enhancing it with more holy imbuement will greatly increase its power, especially during guard counters.

To find the Black Steel Greathammer, players can head to Gravesite Plain in the Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. From the first Site of Grace in Gravesite Plain, head southeast and follow the road until you reach the Church of Consolation. Inside the church, an enemy wields the Black Steel Greathammer. While not overly challenging to defeat, be cautious of his hammer slams and holy AOE attacks. Once you defeat him, the Black Steel Greathammer will be yours to wield.

Overall, the Black Steel Greathammer is a valuable weapon for players with the right stats and playstyle. Its unique abilities and powerful attacks make it a sought-after weapon in Elden Ring’s expansive world. So, if you’re up for the challenge, head to Gravesite Plain and claim this mighty hammer for yourself.
