The bosses in Elden Ring are powerful adversaries, and when you’ve defeated them, some of the more powerful ones drop special items. For example, Godrick drops the item Remembrance of the Grafted, a rare item you can use on your travels.

You’ll be able to use some of the weapons that he used against you during your battle, the Axe of Godrick and the Grafted Dragon. However, you can only use one, and the other is lost unless you duplicate it. Should you choose the Axe of Godrick or the Grafted Dragon in Elden Ring?

What is the best Remembrance of the Grafted Choice?

The choice will come down to what type of character you’re playing. You’ll have two options while playing Elden Ring: the Axe of Godrick and the Grafted Dragon.

For the Axe of Godrick, your character will want to focus primarily on the Attribute Strength in Elden Ring, as the weapon requires a minimum of 34 Strength to wield properly. Alternatively, the Grafted Dragon weapon also requires Strength, but not as much, and has a mixture of Strength and Faith Attribute requirements.

If you primarily focus on increasing your character’s Strength and using weapons in this category, we recommend the Axe of Godrick. Alternatively, if you’re also leveling Faith alongside your other skills, the Grafted Dragon weapon is handy and has a mixture of Physical and Fire damage that it inflicts against enemies while you play Elden Ring.

Between the two options, we feel that the Axe of Godrick is a superior option, especially at the start of Elden Ring. It can be argued that the Grafted Dragon has more flexibility, but not every character focuses on Faith while they play. Strength is a much more common choice, and works for several types of players.

You can decide when you go to the Roundtable Hold and speak with the Finger Reader. She will teach one of these after defeating Godrick. You can only pick one of them, and the other goes away.
