Have you been continuously dying and getting frustrated because you just can’t seem to get past some boss in Elden Ring? Trust me, you are not alone. We’ve all been there! You customized your character and embarked on your journey. However, you don’t know where to begin with your build. You wing it, but you keep dying. Don’t worry, this article is just for you. We’ve researched all the possible Elden Ring builds and here are the top 5!
5. Comet Azur Elden Ring build
Does being a cool blue wizard seem good to you? Look no further because with this build you will look great while striking fear in your enemies. Within Elden Ring, Comet Azur stands as one of the most formidable spells. To harness its full potential, we’ve crafted a build designed to elevate you to the status of a master sorcerer of primordial might, allowing you to swiftly eliminate most of the encountered bosses with a single devastating strike.
Weapon: Lusat’s Glinstone Staff
You can achieve the highest Sorcery damage output by equipping this weapon. However, it does come with a high FP cost. This weapon perfectly suits this build, offering immense damage to foes while also complementing the playstyle of the Astrologer class
Flask Spread: 5 FP and rest HP Flasks + Magic-Shrouding Cracked Tear, Cerulean Hidden Tear
Spells: Comet Azur, Terra Magicus, Glintstone Pebble, Night Comet, Carian Greatsword, Carian Slicer, Carian Piercer, Unseen Form
Stats: Intelligence (80), Mind (30/40), Vigor (prioritize 50/60), Endurance (as needed)
Armor: Azur’s Glintstone Crown
You can complete Sorceress Ellen’s Quest to obtain Azur’s Glintstone Crown. The rest of the armor is up to you!
Talismans: Graven-School/Mass Talisman + The Stargazer Heirloom Talisman and Marika’s Scarseal
Graven-School Talisman and Graven-Mass Talisman are deemed crucial for this Elden Ring build. They further increase the potency of the sorcery attacks. You can equip only one of these. We suggest the Mass one since it is slightly better.
The Stargazer Heirloom Talisman is also useful with this build because it boosts your Intelligence by 5 points, and Marika’s Scarseal also increases your mind and Intelligence attributes, which are the pillars of this build. It comes with a damage-received penalty, but that’s pretty much negligible given your stats.
4. Blasphemous build
Ah, Paladins… Warriors of the light. This build, although it’s called blasphemous due to the weapon, will bestow upon you self-healing abilities. This type of item or even spell is extremely rare and not without reason. It’s extremely OP and will bring you to victory against many of the game’s bosses!
Weapon: Blasphemous blade
The Blasphemous Blade maintains balanced scaling with Strength, Dexterity, and Faith until it undergoes advanced upgrades, accomplished using Somber Smithing Stones. Upon reaching +10, the sword attains a C scaling in both Strength and Dexterity, along with a B scaling in Faith.
Flasks: Flame-Shrouding Cracked Tear, Cerulean Hidden Tear
Spells: Golden Vow Flame, Grant Me Strength, Blessing of the Erdtree, Flame of the Fell God
You can enhance the Blasphemous Blade with Incantations that complement its Health regeneration effect, such as Blessing of the Erdtree, or offensive spells like Flame of the Fell God to create attack opportunities.
Stats: Faith (60/80), Vigor (prioritize 50/60), Mind (as needed), Endurance (as needed for medium weight)
Armor: Up to you!
Choosing armor for the Blasphemous Paladin build isn’t set in stone, as your playstyle influences your attack and healing tactics. However, since it’s a Greatsword build, opt for heavy armor that resists piercing, maintains mobility, and offers reliable protection. Instead of a full armor set, mix and match ideal pieces.
Talismans: The Shard of Alexander +Carian Filigreed Cres
The Shard of Alexander enhances any Weapon Art’s effectiveness, making it an ideal choice for this build. The Taker’s Flame, while potent, can be a bit sluggish without charms. This talisman reduces animation and charging times, allowing you to use Weapon Art without enduring damage.
For the Blasphemous Blade’s Weapon Art, which is a pillar of this Elden Ring build, optimizing its usage is crucial. However, activating the skill consumes FP each time. To counter this, employing the Carian Filigreed Crest reduces the FP cost of all Weapon Arts. When combined with a high Mind attribute, it ensures an endless supply of the Taker’s Flame.
3. Black Flame Elden Ring build
Certainly, being the Reaper of Death seems like an attractive idea to most of us. With this build you can have a lot of melee combat and burn down the bosses health due to the Black Flame.
Weapon: Angel Scythe
If you look at other sources this particular build offers a lot of flexibility in terms of weapons. However, we recommend Angel’s Scythe as it causes blood loss with physical and holy damage.
Flasks: Flame-Shrouding Cracked Tear, Leaden Hardtear
Spells: Black Flame, Black Flame Blade, Scouring Black Flame
Stats: Faith (60/80), Vigor (prioritize 50/60), Endurance (as needed for medium weight), Dexterity (as needed), Mind (as needed)
Armor: Ruler’s Mask
Although the choice of armor isn’t of utmost significance, a few good armor pieces can slightly enhance the effectiveness of this black flame build. We suggest the Ruler’s Mask!
Talismans: Green turtle talisman, Ancestral Spirit’s Horn, Crimson Amber Medallion
The Green Turtle talisman proves excellent for various builds, including this one. Since you’ll adopt an offensive stance, maintaining a higher stamina regeneration rate becomes pivotal to sustaining relentless pressure.
Additionally, consider the Ancestral Spirit’s Horn to recuperate some of the lost FP from enemies during your journey. In boss encounters, swap it out for universally valuable talismans like the Crimson Amber Medallion or alternatives that bolster your HP or enhance healing.
2. Dragon Lightning build
Do you want a chance to become Zeus himself in Elden ring? Well, look no further! This fun build will not just make you look super cool, but it will allow you to defeat enemies at ease.
Weapon: Inseparable Sword
The Inseparable Sword serves as the primary melee weapon in this Faith build. To obtain it, follow Fia’s quest until you acquire the Twinned Armor from D. Afterwards, hand over the Twinned Armor to D’s brother and proceed to the Deeproot Depths. There, you’ll encounter Fia at the Prince of Death’s Throne. Defeat her champions, and the Inseparable Sword will be on the throne.
Flasks: Cerulean Hidden Tear/Opaline Bubble Tear, Lightning-Shrouding Cracked Tear
Spells:Ancient Dragons’ Lightning Strike, Lightning Spear, Honed Bolt, Lansseax’s Glaive, Vyke’s Dragonbolt, Golden Vow, Flame, Grant Me Strength
Stats: 40 Faith, 40 Dexterity, 20 Strength
Armor: Up to you!
Like other Faith builds, this doesn’t require any special armor set and it is the best to choose individual items. However, at least try to avoid fat rolling!
Talismans: Cerulean Amber Medallion, Flock’s Canvas
The Cerulean Amber Medallion is a talisman that enhances your maximum FP, enabling you to cast more spells before resorting to a Flask of Cerulean Tears for FP restoration. With this enhancement, you can allocate fewer points to Mind and instead concentrate on leveling up Faith and Arcane to amplify your damage output.
Another valuable talisman is the Flock’s Canvas, which increases the damage of incantations. Pretty simple!
1. Rivers of Blood Elden Ring Build – Best one
Bleed is definitely the best damage dealer in Elden Ring. It is stackable and easily utilized. So, here’s the best build you can possibly have! Also, we have to give it credit for being available pretty early in the game.
Weapon: Rivers of Blood
The Rivers of Blood katana specializes in dealing bleed damage, but its true power lies in the Corpse Piler skill. This skill unleashes a devastating 6-hit combo that almost invariably inflicts the bleed effect, making it very easy to defeat anyone!
Flasks: Cerulean Hidden Tear, Thorny Cracked Tear
Spells: Bloodboon Ritual, Bloodblade Dance/Corpse Piler
Stats: 12 Strength, 18 Dexterity, 20 Arcane
Armor: Up to you!
There isn’t any specific armor set that we’d recommend for this build. Just pick something that will make you relatively quick and you’re good to go!
Talismans: The Rotten Winged Sword Insignia, Carian Filigreed Crest
The Rotten Winged Sword Insignia is a vital talisman for this Rivers of Blood build, greatly enhancing successive attack power, which syncs perfectly with the Corpse Piler skill on Rivers of Blood.
For added efficiency, consider the Carian Filigreed Crest, another exceptional talisman for this Rivers of Blood build. It reduces the FP cost of the Corpse Piler skill and can be obtained more easily.
