There are no AoE Weapons as such in the game instead it has weapons skills that do AoE damage. So in the below list, we will take a look at the weapons that already have a skill that does AoE damage.

  • Sword of Night and Flame: Sword of Night and flame has the weapon skill Night-and-Flame Stance. This is by far the best weapon for AoE as it has not one but two AoE attacks. Hold your sword and do a normal attack to use Comet Azur. Alternatively, you can hold it and do a strong attack to slash with flames.
  • Ruins Greatsword: Ruins Greatsword has the weapon skill Wave of Destruction. This skill charges purple lightning and launches a large slash forward that does a lot of AoE damage.
  • Sacred Relic Sword: Sacred Relic Sword gets the weapon skill Wave of Gold. It covers a small area but slashes a golden arc forward that deals holy damage.
  • Meteoric Ore Blade: Meteoric Ore Blade is another weapon that has a skill that does AoE damage. Its skill is Gravitas, your character will thrust the sword into the ground. It will deal damage to all the weapons in the area, and pull them towards the sword.
  • Reduvia Dagger: Reduvia Dagger uses the weapon skill Blood Blade, this might not be the best AoE weapon skill in the game. But it is ideal if you have a bleed build. It launches a small arc in front when you attack which deals good damage when connected.
  • Icerind Hatchet: This weapon gets the weapon skill Hoarfrost Stomp. While this weapon might not be the best weapon by itself in terms of damage but this skill compensates for it. The player stomps on the ground and releases an area of frost in front of it. This attack covers a decent range and also does frost damage to any enemy in front of it.
