  • Strength: 28
  • Skill: 11
  • Arkan: 16

The weapon scales primarily with Strength and Arcane. Physical damage, on the other hand, scales with strength, whereby bleeding damage is particularly influenced by arcane

Optimal use of the Bloodfiend’s Arm

To maximize the full potential of the Bloodfiend’s Arm, you should apply aBlood Warscroll to the weapon and upgrade it with Forge Stones– ideally to the maximum of +25.
