Elden Ring’s Game of Thrones tribute is an Iron Throne-inspired weapon, and you can find it early in the game




Game of Thrones might be over, but George R. R. Martin is still out there rocking it. While all of us have been waiting for The Winds of Winter, that’s not all George is doing right now. Aside from helping develop the Game of Thrones prequel House of The Dragon and other spinoff shows at HBO, Martin is working on adapting his Wild Cards universe into a Marvel comic series, all the while sharing his expertise in creating a mythical world for the new video game Elden Ring. And the game shadows a few similarities with Martin’s most famous works.

Game developer From Software hid a neat easter egg reference to Martin’s famous series-turned-HBO mega-hit Game of Thrones, in the form of a weapon. The weapon is called the Grafted Blade Greatsword, and it looks very similar to an iconic prop from the world of Westeros. This Greatsword is several smaller swords grafted together, and looking at the design it is a clear nod to the famed Iron Throne from Game of Thrones. Like the sword, the throne is made from different swords welded together.


However, unlike the Iron Throne of King’s Landing, the sword is easy to get. To acquire the sword players will need to travel to the Weeping Peninsula. There, players will come across Castle Morne. After fighting their way towards the back of the castle, players can fight a boss called Leonine Misbegotten and the reward for defeating him will be the Grafted Blade Greatsword. The weapon requires players to have 40 Strength to use effectively.
