Where to find Leda’s Sword in Shadow of the Erdtree

To get Leda’s Sword in Shadow of the Erdtree, you must defeat Needle Knight Leda herself.

You will have spoken with Leda as you progress through the story of the DLC, as she, and her allies are guiding you on a path forward.

She’s also the one who you talk to to actually enter the expansion, just to be even more clear on who the NPC is.

However, while you do converse with her and her party in the Realm of Shadow, refrain from killing her before the time is right.

This is because even if you do try and challenge her, she will teleport away, since there is a specific point in the story when you come face to face in battle.

Unfortunately, you will have to wait some time though because it is not until right before the final boss.
