Elden Ring Lightning Build 1.08

Best Elden Ring Lightning Build 1.08 - Most OP Lightning Build in Elden Ring 2023

Coming at the Elden Ring 1.08 lightning build by Your Average Gamer, this is going to be an overpowered lightning build for 2023 that can do a pretty good amount of damage, it might not be one shot, but you’ll get consistently high damage out of it while doing a couple of simple buffs, and then being able to cast it with ease and the safety of having full HP.

Stats (Level 150)

For the level 150 stats, you should heavily invest in faith and a decent amount of vigor, then a little bit of endurance, everything else is up to you, but you need 20 strength for the Jellyfish Shield. 

- Vigor 50

- Mind 25

- Endurance 26

- Strength 20

- Dexterity 15

- Intelligence 9

- Faith 70

- Arcane 14

Weapons & Equipment

Jellyfish Shield is a unique Greatshield that mainly scales with strength. And the Gravel Stone Seal is a good weapon that primarily scales with faith, it is used for lightning incantations. As many buffs are active, just use the Jellyfish Shield in this instance, if you have time maybe cast Howl, but it could be a little bit difficult to do, the boss may be able to hit you at range while you're using that, Golden Vow is something that you could use again because as the fight goes on that will wear out as well.

- Gravel Stone Seal +25

- Jellyfish Shield


For this lightning build, you can go with Black Dumpling and any other armor.

- Head: Black Dumpling

- Chest: Crucible Axe Armor

- Arms: Crucible Gauntlets

- Legs: Crucible Greaves


- Dragoncrest Greatshield Talisman: boosts physical damage negation.

- Lightning Scorpion Charm: raises lightning attack, lowers damage negation. 

- Ritual Sword Talisman: raises attack power when HP is at maximum.

- Flock’s Canvas Talisman: raises the potency of incantations.

Flask of Wondrous Physick

You can use the lightning tear and defense tier in order to get a lot of defense for this type of build.

- Lightning-Shrouding Cracked Tear

- Opaline Hardtear

Buffs and Spells

For the buffs, a couple of longer-duration Elden Ring items are recommended, this build uses simple stuff like Jellyfish Shield, Howl of Shabriri, and Golden Vow to increase damage at full HP. The first step is to use the tear, then proc the Black Dumpling when you go mad, which gives you an extra 10 generic damage, you can switch it out for any other helm. Then you are going to tap her off your FP and use Golden Vow, the last thing you are going to do after filling up FP is the Jellyfish Shield, Howl of Shabriri, then get to cast Ancient Dragons' Lightning Strike for massive damage. 

Build Tips

This is probably one of the most fun builds to use in Elden Ring, Ancient Dragons' Lightning Strike is the pillar of faith builds, the best advice is to be close to an enemy but not too close, and make sure you fully charge the cast all the way through and then release it, you will do massive damage to the majority of bosses. This is definitely the build you want to start out with if you're trying to do Ancient Dragons' Lightning Strike.
