Best Elden Ring Arcane build Like our Rivers of Blood and Dexterity builds this Elden Ring Arcane build focuses on inflicting the bleed effect on enemies. It does this by using the Bloodboon Ritual skill that comes with Mohgwyns Sacred Spear which is one of the best weapons in Elden Ring. This skill allows you to thrust the spear into the air and cover the surrounding area in blood dealing lots of damage to enemies and building up their bleed status. Where to find Mohgwyns Sacred Spear in Elden Ring To get Mohgwyns Sacred Spear you must go to Mohgwyn Palace and kill Mohg Lord of Blood. After you can take the Remembrance of the Blood Lord to Finger Reader Enia and purchase Mohgwyns Sacred Spear.
Elden Ring Arcane build stat requirements This Elden Ring Arcane build requires the following stats 24 Strength 14 Dexterity 27 Arcane The most important attribute for this build is Arcane. Youll need 27 Arcane to wield Mohgwyns Sacred Spear but we recommend raising it all the way to the soft cap of 60. This will increase your damage with the spear and also increase the speed with which you inflict the bleed effect on enemies. Once you have 60 Arcane youll find that you can make enemies bleed every time you use the Bloodboon Ritual skill. Dexterity and Strength are less important here so we recommend initially aiming for the minimum requirements listed above. Youll be able to use Mohgwyns Sacred Spear with 24 Strength and 14 Dexterity at which point you should shift back to Arcane. If you reach 60 Arcane and want to invest in a secondary stat put some extra points into Strength. The spear doesnt scale well with Dexterity so leave that at 14.
Important gear for the Elden Ring Arcane build While just leveling Arcane will make Mohgwyns Sacred Spear incredibly powerful there are a few other items that you can get to become an unstoppable Blood Lord. Well break down the talismans and Crystal Tears that you need below Marikas Soreseal a talisman that increases your Arcane Faith Intelligence and Mind by 5 levels each. This will raise your max damage with Mohgwyns Sacred Spear and increase your FP making it vital for this Arcane build. You can find it in Elphael Brace of the Haligtree by climbing down into the ravine near the Prayer Room Site of Grace and unlocking the fog wall nearby. Carian Filigreed Crest a talisman that lowers the FP cost of weapon skills allowing you to use Bloodboons Ritual more often. You can purchase the Carian Filigreed Crest from Iji after helping Blaidd kill Bloodhound Knight Darriwil at the Forlorn Hound Evergaol.
Lord of Bloods Exultation a talisman that increases your damage when a nearby enemy gets the bleed status effect. Since this build focuses on making enemies bleed as often as possible this talisman offers an invaluable damage increase. You can get Lord of Bloods Exultation by killing Esgar Priest of Blood in the Leyndell Catacombs beneath the Subterranean ShunningGrounds. Cerulean Hidden Tear a Crystal Tear that reduces any FP costs to 0 for a brief amount of time. This allows you to repeatedly use the Bloodboons Ritual skill without losing FP so you can deal massive damage to enemies at no cost. Youll get the Cerulean Hidden Tear after killing the Ulcerated Tree Spirit at the foot of the Mt. Gelmir Minor Erdtree. FlameShrouding Cracked Tear a Crystal Tear that raises the power of your fire attacks.
