10/24/2022 5:24:57 PM

A bunch of changes were made to Elden Ring with a new 1.07 patch going live, which raises the question of what is now actually the best build in the game. Well, we've got you covered, a lot of builds are now stronger than ever and this guide will show you why we have to start off with one of these biggest winners after the 1.07 patch in Elden Ring!


Top 10 - Great Stars Strength Faith Build (Best Paladin Build)

  • Main Stats (Early Game): Strength, Faith, Vigor

  • Weapon: Great Stars

  • Ash of War: Prayerful Strike

  • Talismans: Radagon's Soreseal, Sacred Scorpion Charm

  • Flask of Wondrous Physick: Holy-Shrouding Cracked Tear, Faith-Knot Crystal Tear

This is a Powerful Endgame Great Stars Build - Great Hammer in combination with Prayerful Strike as its Ash of War to get insane heal on hit and just have amazing damage and toes damage. The developers must have been on crack when they changed the game and thought both the weapon as well as the ash of war needed a buff when they were already really OP which makes this build now GOD tier and stronger than ever, combine it with a bunch of Paladin themed incantations that also got a buff that is in fact a part of the Paladin's Arsenal and kit. Since it is a hybrid strength and faith build where these incantations just fit the build and theme perfectly and this build is now perfection itself.

Top 9 - Blasphemous Strength Faith Build (Best Demon Build)

  • Main Stats: Faith, Strength, Vigor

  • Weapon: Blasphemous Blade

  • Ash of War: Sacred Great Stars

  • Talismans: Fire Scorpion Charm, Shard of Alexander, Great-Jar's Arsenal, Ritual Sword Talisman/Dragoncrest Greatshield Talisman

  • Flask of Wondrous Physick: Faith-Knot Crystal Tear, Flame-Shrouding Cracked Tear

The Demon Paladin build is also a hybrid strength and faith build. Blasphemous blade is the demon Paladin's weapon and was already one of the strongest weapons in the game as you probably know, but it's Ash of War actually got a slide buff as well after the 1.07 patch making it even better. The demon Paladin build is now stronger than ever for the same reason as the holy build really. And with various demonic incantations getting a buff as well, this build emerges as a major winner of Patch 1.07.

Top 8 - Wing of Astel Nightblade Build (Best Int/Dex Build)

  • Main Stats (150 Level): Intelligence (>60), Vigor (50/60), Mind (25/30), Dexterity (26)

  • Talismans: Shard of Alexander, Magic Scorpion Charm, Graven-Mass Talisman, Godfrey Icon

  • Flask of Wondrous Physick: Magic-Shrouding Cracked Tear, Intelligence-Knot Crystal Tear

  • Gear: Spellblade Set (for Offensive)

The Nightblade build is the major winner in Patch 1.07, as it got buffed in every aspect possible. This nightblade uses Wing of Astel as its main weapon is a powerful mid and late game build. The Ash of War of Wing of Astel- Nebula got a really nice buff, even though again it was already very powerful, so with this build blowing up everything was never this easy before though. The NightLight is also specialized in a bunch of spellblade dark and night sorceries and pretty much every single spell bait sorceries in the game that nightblade uses got a buff. Add to that, that multiple legendary spells that the night blade uses are called a very significant buff and we can safely say that this build is now stronger than ever.

Top 7 - Samurai Mage Build (Best Dual Katana Spellblade Build)

  • Weapon: Uchigatana (Main), Rift Shield (Left), Meteorite Staff (Left)

  • Talismans: Radagon's Soreseal, Godfrey Icon

  • Flask of Wondrous Physick: Intelligence-Knot Crystal Tear, Magic-Shrouding Cracked Tear

  • Gear: Spellblade Set

This Samurai Mage build is also in winner since it's the Nightblade's brother and truly embraces the idea of getting OP early with a DEX Build. It is a really fun hybrid build, pretty much every single sorcery which at the samurai mage uses Gog buffed, and don't forget the samurai Mage is a three-way type of build. The Samurai Mage uses powerful katanas such as the Moonville Katana which if you may or may not know is an absolute crazy Katana next to that the Samurai Mage also uses a mighty magic Carian Knight's Sword with Carian Grandeur, in conjunction with all the sorceries that it uses and everything added up makes the samurai mage build in a better sport than it has ever been.

Top 6 - Black Flame Dagger Rogue Build (Best Faith Assassin Build)

  • Main Stats (150 Level): Faith (80), Vigor (40/60), Mind (30), Endurance (14/19)

The black frame Rogue is the definition of breaking your opponent in every aspect of combat. This dangerous assassin makes use of multiple little daggers, the best daggers in the world of Elden Ring really, and quickly destroys everything in combat through create easy Poise damage the highest possible critical damage in the game, and just overall insane damage. This assassin also doubles heavily into the arts of Destined Death and the Black Flame, of which both got buffs in various forms making the Black Flame Rogue stronger than ever. 

Top 5- Fire Mage Build (Best Pyromancer Build)

  • Flask of Wondrous Physick: Flame-Shrouding Cracked Tear, Faith-knot Crystal Tear

  • Gear: Diallos's Mask, Fire Monk Armor, Fire Monk Gauntlets, Bull-Goat Greaves

Black Flame spells are a form of pyromancy and thus practiced by various pyromancers pyromancy is in a better spot than ever before with again various buffs to a lot of different pyromancy spells and don't forget pyromancy spells were already buffed once before. With the most powerful Pyromancer Build, you can do a full playthrough and you can erase the existence of everything you're facing within mere seconds, even Burn Flame got a buff which was already an absolute ridiculous spell, and really it's the same story for flame fall upon them.

Top 4 - Reduvia Blood Blade Build (Best Arcane Faith Build)

  • Main Stats (150 Level): Arcane (45), Faith (36), Vigor (40), Mind (30+), Endurance (20+)

  • Weapon: Reduvia Dagger (Main), Rivers of Blood (Left), Jellyfish Shield (Left)

  • Ash of War: Reduvia Blood Blade

  • Talismans: Radagon's Soreseal, Great-Jar's Arsenal, Flock's Canvas Talisman, Ritual Sword Talisman

  • Flask of Wondrous Physick: Cerulean Hidden Tear, Opaline Bubbletear

  • Gear: Silver Tear Mask, Veteran's Armor Set

Like sorceries, a lot of incantations got a buff as well recently, the Arcane Faith hybrid build makes great use of various Dragon communion spells. And in our opinion the best and most fun incantations to really optimize its heavy investment in both Faith and Arcane to destroy everything in the game, now whether we're talking Dragonmaw, Frenzied Burst, Lighting Spear, Black Flame which incantation you want to name from the Arcane and Faith builds, the Buffs targeted all of them and are now stronger than ever. When combining Arcane and Faith, you also get access to the powerful Dragon community school, you can blast your opponents of the Earth with a lot of dragon spells and all of these spells are just really strong and fun to use.

Now one incantation in particular Rotten Breath got a Nerf to its Scarlet Rat buildup, but it really doesn't matter, you only have to proc Scarlet once and your opponent is dead. So use Rotten Breath for a few seconds longer than before and the result is still the same, but this time with all of the other stuff in those builds actually being stronger now as well. 

Thanks to the Arcane part of the build, we utilize nice weapons as well such as the Reduvia. Reduvia was already a really good weapon that you can pick up within like two minutes of starting a new playthrough, but it also got a buff in this patch. It is also a bleed Weapon by the way, it was and is a really strong weapon utilized really well within a really strong build that is now even stronger definitely check those out. 

Top 3 - Twinblade Dexterity Build (Best Samurai Build)

  • Main Stats (150 Level): Dexterity (55), Arcane (30+), Vigor (40), Endurance (30)

  • Weapon: Blood Nagakiba (Main), Keen Uchigatana (Left)

  • Ash of War: Bloody Slash, Blood Blade

  • Spells: Whirl, O Flame!

  • Flask of Wondrous Physick: Crimsonburst Crystal Tear

  • Gear: Land of Reeds Armor Set, Dexterity-Knot Crystal Tear

When we're talking about things to check out you cannot miss the good old classic - the samurai build. The samurai is really just stronger than ever because Bloody Slash got a pretty significant buff. Bloody Slash is one of the main Ashes of War that the samurai uses and before you could already slice your way through the game easy peasy like a hawk knife through butter, and now it is even stronger. Also, the other main Ash of War that the samurai uses the Blood Blade also got significantly buffed. The samurai utilize amazing weapons like the Nagakiba in a dual wheeled Katana setup with Uchigatana. You can do all of that right at the start of a new playthrough, the Nagakiba has an amazing reach and combines very well with an Uchigatana, making the samurai build not only the best dual Katana setup you can make early on, but also the best blood setup you can make early on, and it's more true than ever thanks to the buffs to both bloodblade and bloody slash.

Top 2 - Cold-Blooded Flame (Best Bleed-Frost Build)

  • Main Stats (150 Level): Arcane (55), Dexterity (55), Vigor (50), Mind (20), Endurance (23)

  • Weapon: Eleonora's Poleblade(Main), Cold Twinblade (Left)

  • Ash of War: Ice Spear

  • Talismans: Radagon's Soreseal, Claw Talisman, 

  • Flask of Wondrous Physick: Flame-Shrounding Cracked Tear, Stonebarb Cracked Tear

  • Gear: White Mask, Raptor's Black Leather, Bull-Goat Gauntlets, Bull-Goat Greaves

The Frost Bleed build is the strongest ice bleed fire combo build that you'll ever see. Using twin blades and sick move sets, you completely destroy your opponents with the Cold-Blooded Flame build, and this build is really barely affected by the changes to dual-wielding status effect buildup. Twin blades hit your opponents up to 6 times within a single jump attack making it the class that is the least affected by changes to dual wielding. The cold blood flame also makes use of various very powerful ashes of a war that embody the spirit of combining Frostbite and Bleed base damage in one build, to make it a harmonious build that makes quick work of anyone. This build completely perfects the idea of applying both frostbite and blood loss buildup on your enemies at the same time

Top 1 - Scavenger's Curved Sword Seppuku Build (Best Bleed Build)

  • Main Stats (125 Level): Arcane (80), Vigor (40), Mind (11), Endurance (29)

  • Weapon: Scavenger's Curved Sword (Main), Eleonora's Poleblade (Left)

  • Ash of War: Seppuku 

  • Spells: Borealis's Mist, Dragonmaw, Greyoll's Roar, Swarm of Flies, Rotten Breath, Pest Threads, Rrenzied Burst

  • Talismans: Lord of Blood's Exultation, Rotten Winged Sword Insignia, Millicent's Prosthesis

  • Flask of Wondrous Physick: Thorny Cracked Tear, Opaline Bubbletear

  • Gear: White Mask, Raptor's Black Leather, Bull-Goat Gauntlets, Bull-Goat Greaves

When we're talking bleed, however in a seppuku setup that got a nerve. Now you might think that the most powerful blade build would be affected by this and the answer is yes it did kinda, but thankfully we use a Scavenger's Curved Sword in the most powerful bleed build. Scavenger's Curved Sword is the only curve sword in the game that has innate blood loss build up, so you can run or kill enemies and scale both their blood loss build-up, as well as their actual raw damage through the same stat this leads to a really efficient stat distribution. Even with the nerves to seppuku and dual-wielding blood setups, the Scavenger's Curved Sword is still very strong simply due to the reason that it has the moveset of the curved sword weapon class but actually also comes with innate blood loss build-up, you will probably a bit slower now but with our setup, your damage output will overall still be top tier since all of the investment in our gain will make your normal damage bonkers and you will still get those juicy bleed blocks every few jump attacks blocking all kinds of bonuses to your damage output, that's why we are definitely still advocating for running an occult Scavenger's Curved Sword build, especially using this setup
