Elden Ring builds: Do you want to experiment with some other Elden Ring configurations? Now that Minecraft has been out for a while, it’s an excellent way to revisit the game. A character in the game may pique your interest, or you may simply wish to test a hypothesis on the viability of a character concept.
What if you had a gigantic horn and could use it to defeat bosses? Turn Elden Ring into Bloodborne with vampire powers? Alternatively, why not use a treasure hunter build that streamlines the process of collecting the entire collection? The wide range of weapons, armor, talismans, and Ashes of War allows you to experiment with your configuration.
If you can use Larval Tears to re-spec your character numerous times per game, there is nothing stopping you. Our favorite strange and amusing Elden Ring builds are featured here.
The best fun Elden Ring builds
The king of hunks.
Longhorn Talismans: Alexander’s Shard, Godfrey’s Icon, Carian Filigreed Crest, Sacred Scorpion Charm
Crown Stats: Faith, Strength, and Mind distributed across Envoy’s armor.
The Oracle Envoys are white blobs that play horns and attack you with bubbles while you’re exploring Lyndell. However, did you know that their horns can be used as a weapon? This build focuses on the Envoy’s Longhorn, one of three weapons that can be wielded by different sized envoys. Bubble-shooting prowess is superior to that of the Envoy’s Greathorn, and it’s a lot easier to acquire.
The horn may be obtained from the mid-sized Envoy on Leyndell’s Ramparts, and talismans such as the Shard of Alexander and the Godfrey Icon can increase the damage of the bubble skill it uses. This crest also reduces the amount of FP required for each bubble burst, allowing you to do more bursts. Longhorn’s faith and strength are two more important considerations. For a final touch, the Haligtree offers an Envoy’s Crown headpiece and the summon ashes you need to call in the little fellas.
Goat with a Burning Mouth
Butcher’s Knife: Ash of War: Lightning Ram
Giant’s Seal Casting Calls
Other fire-based spells: Fire’s Deadly Sin chants of the monks
Godfrey Icon, Godfrey Swaddling Cloth, and the Winged Sword Insignia are all talismans.
Armor: Bull-Goat Armor, Imp Head Armor (for the Elder).
Spread of stats: Endurance, vigor, mind, and faith.
An old Elden Ring PvP strategy that entailed putting yourself on fire and rolling toward your attacker was formerly popular among players. This build relies heavily on the Fire’s Deadly Sin incantation and Ash of War: Lightning Ram. Using the first, you’ll inflict harm on everyone in the vicinity, so you roll towards your foes with the ram and inflict both fire and lightning damage.
If you want to stay alive, you’ll need to keep up the talent all the while having a lot of health and mind. Because of the weapon’s ability, I recommend using Butcher’s Knife with Lightning Ram because it heals you every time it hits. With the Godskin Swaddling Cloth and the Winged Sword Insignia and its accompanying talismans, you can further enhance this and increase the attack power of those consecutive rolls. Wearing the Bull-Goat armor requires a lot of stamina, and the fire incantation requires faith. Though it’s only playable in the late game, this is a hilarious build to play around with.
Serpent of Immortality
Talismans: Taker’s Cameo, Godskin Swaddling Cloth, Assassin’s Crimson Dagger, Serpent-Curved God’s Sword, dual-wield
the gravekeeper cloak (altered), the Zamor bracelets, and the prophet trousers
Stats: Dexterity, Strength, and Faith.
This build focuses on becoming a vampire and regaining health via killing enemies, as many serpent god-related items in Elden Ring return health when killed. Dual-wielding the Serpent-Curved God’s Sword and Rykard’s Blasphemous sword, both of which restore health when you defeat an enemy, can help you heal a lot faster. Taker’s Cameo, Godskin Swaddling Cloth, and Assassin’s Crimson Dagger are all useful talismans because they replenish health after you defeat an enemy, although the latter two only work when you land a critical strike.
Get Melania’s great rune if you want to take this vampiric build to the next level. It allows you to heal yourself after being harmed by an enemy. While it’s possible to get two of the serpent god’s curved swords, a new game plus is required to get a second one. Duelist armor, which can be enhanced with the Gravekeeper Cloak to add more snakey elements, completes the look.
Death’s Poker, Rosus’ Axe, Ritual Death Spear, Grave Scythe, Helphen’s Steeple, and Rosus’ Axe
Prince of Death’s Sword Casting:
Talismans: Graven Mass Talisman, Radagon Icon, Magic Scorpion Charm
Royal Remains Helm, Night’s Cavalry Armor Stat spread: Intelligence, Mind, and a combat stat for the weapon you choose.
Death sorcery isn’t the best in the game, but with the Deathbirds and the Tibia Mariners, a Necromancer composition has so much potential. In order to use any of the weapons listed above, an intelligence scaling must also be present. Helen’s Steeple won me over with its unique ghost flame infusion ability. Magic Scorpion charm, Graven Mass Talisman, Radagon Icon, and the staff of Prince of Death increase your damage and casting speed when you use death sorceries.
Most of the best death sorceries are found in the late game, such as Ancient Death Rancor, Explosive Ghostflame, and Fia’s Mist. The Death Rite Birds are so hard to kill that this entire build is the endgame. Finally, the Royal Remains Helm and the Night’s Cavalry set provide some amusing armor, but really, anything goes as long as it’s frightening.
The Madness Merchant
Frenzied Flame seal cast by Vyke’s War Spear
Unendurable Frenzy, Frenzied Burst, and Flame of Frenzy are all spells that can be used.
Flock’s Canvas, Radagon Icon, Shard of Alexander Armor: Nomadic Merchant’s Finery Talismans: Faith, Dexterity and Mind Stat spread
Some of my favorites in the game are the itinerant merchants and their relationship to the Frenzied Flame and madness incantations. Vyke’s War Spear is the only weapon in the game that can cause madness, thus it’s a no-brainer to equip it with the Frenzied Flame Seal. In terms of PVP, Frenzied Burst and Flame of Frenzy and Unendurable Frenzy are two of the best options.
Your incantations will take a beating thanks to Flock’s Canvas and Godfrey Icon, as well as the Shard of Alexander. Vyke’s Frenzyflame Thrust will also benefit from these talismans. As an added bonus you’ll find a wonderful Merchant Finery outfit in a place hidden beneath Leyndell Cathedral of Forsaken.
A Frenzied Flame seal is cast with the Venomous Fang’s Frenzied Flame seal.
For example, Pest Threads and Scarlet Aeonia are two of the spells available.
Radon Icon, and Flock’s Canvas Talisman Rot’s Exultation’s Kindred
a suit of mushroom armor consisting of a mushroom crown, mushroom chest, mushroom legs, and mushroom arms.
Arcane, Faith, Dexterity, and Mind are the four stats that make up this breakdown.
It’s true that Poison and Scarlet Rot aren’t as good as you’d anticipate, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t useful. In addition to already having Scarlet Rot, the Antspur Rapier can be poisoned with the ash of war. Stacking Scarlet Rot and Poison will be critical in order to make this build work, so pay attention.
Incantations will play a role in this. Due to Arcane scaling, the Dragon Communion seal is your strongest casting option, but the Frenzied Flame Seal could also be used. Except for Kindred of Rot’s Exultation, which boosts attack when you inflict Poison or Scarlet Rot, you’ll want the usual incantation-boosting talismans. Sets of mushrooms from Seethewater Cave and a stunning Mushroom Crown from the Lake of Rot complete this look.
It’s all about the collector here.
Warrior talismans include the Winged Sword In signature, the Carian Filigree Crest, the Shard of Alexander, and the Godfrey Icon.
Set of Briar Armor with a Black Hood
Strength, Dexterity, and Arcane.
This is a great build if you want to complete a collecting playthrough and gather every item in Elden Ring. Both the Regalia and the Marais Executioner’s Sword are used by the Eochaid. Both of them feature the Eochaid’s Dancing Blade skill, which allows you to combine bosses with a spinning magic blade, and they both scale with Arcane. Millicent’s Prosthesis, the Rotten Winged Sword Insignia, and the Winged Sword In signature are all-powerful talismans that can be used to enhance this ability. As each strike of the spinning sword boosts the attack, it can inflict a lot of damage.
The damage and FP cost of the other talismans on this list will be increased. The Gaol Cave dungeon contains the Regalia of Eochaid early in the game, allowing you to use it before moving on to the Marais after defeating Elmer. To protect me, I wore the Black Hood and Briar Set, along with the Pillory Shield. Aside from improving death light resistance, it’s not a very useful shield. On the other hand, it’s perfect for the “escaped criminal” theme.
