How to get River of Blood Katana?
You will need to head to “Giants Gravepost” in the Forbidden Lands. After spawning in “Giants Gravepost” head forward until you see skeleton statues and giants roaming around and fighting each other.
Do not engage with these giants and keep moving forward. If you move forward you will come across a dilapidated stone church. In this area, you will be invaded by “Bloody Finger Okina”.
This enemy is extremely powerful and fast and you will need to keep your distance while fighting it. Summon spirit companions to help with the fight and use ranged attacks. Spells like “Comet Azure” will help a lot in the fight. Defeating this enemy will give you the “River of Blood” katana.
To reach the Forbidden Lands you will have to complete more than half of the main storyline quests. This will allow you to enter the Forbidden Lands and travel to the “Giants Gravespot”.
The general area of the “Giants Gravespot” location is filled with high-level enemies. You do not need to engage with these enemies and just rush past them using your spectral horse “Torrent”.
