Twinblades is a weapon that can morph into many unique playstyles. Therefore, its Ash of War implementations is virtually limitless. While you could be looking to opt for an assassination-oriented playstyle, it’s still possible to pivot into bruiser builds. 

Thus, the end choice ultimately lies on your shoulders. With that being said, let’s take a look at the best Ashes of War for Twinblades in Elden Ring:

1.) Bloody Slash

The Bloody Slash is an Ash of War that essentially allows you to coat your twinblades into a crimson red obtained by your own blood. The character then launches the weapon’s slash in a wide frontal arc that deals an absurd amount of damage to the enemies in its path. 

There is a multitude of perks associated with having such an Ash of War during combat, with the most prominent one being its low activation cost. Not only the ability can be called a number of times during a battle but it also deals exorbitant damage, thereby making it extremely useful to have on weapons like twinblades. 

With that said, it does use HP to use, so it’s more of a self-sacrificial skill than anything else. 

2.) Bloodhound’s Step

Bloodhound’s Step is an Ash of War that allows you to go into temporal stealth mode with the intention of launching a surprise attack. It’s generally great to use for assassination. Furthermore, your character will also be initiating a dodge at high speed, thereby making it extremely useful in 1 on 1 combat. 

Consequently, it can also be used to lock around the target for backstabbing damage. Since the costs of the skill aren’t that high, you’ll find it quite easy to take advantage of the momentum boost that comes with it. 

Bloodhound Step is essentially a buffed-up version of Quickstep and can be used to travel distance while running as well. This is because the skill is essentially an invisible dash that allows maneuverability. 

3.) Hoarfrost Stomp

Unlike the conventional assassin-based Ashes of War, the Hoarfrost Stomp is a skill that essentially allows you to pivot into a bruiser built through its CC and base damage. Your character will slam the ground, causing it to spread s unidirectional trail of white mist that applies the frozen status on affected enemies. 

It’s generally used to eliminate the lacking AOE issue present in most high damage classes. While the Hoarfrost stomp is intended to be used against multiple enemies, it works just as well against single targets. 

Since Twinswords are generally intended to be used for mutilating the opponent, you will have a great time flexing your skills on frozen enemies.
