Elden Ring DLC Shadow of the Erdtree Best Builds

According to reports and tweets from data miners, it is believed that the next part of the Elden Ring, Shadow of the Erdtree, is coming out in February 2024. It is also expected that the whole game is going to focus on the burnt and diminished state of Erdtree. There are going to be a lot of lore dives, PvP-driven challenges, new weapons, new bosses, and other expansions. What is the immediate first step to be followed after acknowledging the news of the new expansion and more challenging events? That’s right. Finding the best build. This blog serves as a guide to pick up the best build before the launch. It is not only based on the attack power and damaging skill of the build but also on the liking and convenience of the players. 

Bolt of Gransax

What is so amazing about this build is that you can pair spears and swords with barricades and shields which can give you so much versatility. When it comes to play style, this build is one of those that do not have a major downside. Behind these shields and thrusting swords, you are almost invincible. It is a dexterity-based build. So, you need not worry about your stat. And another major advantage of this build is that you need not invest so many points in your faith tier or any other as it is already a powerful build. It will cause your character to be in a higher level of power and this build has everything including damage, defense, and range.  

Dragon Scale Build

Earlier, the dragon scale build was neither the most admirable build nor the most favourite build of the players. It is because, if you compiled your weapons with different Katanas, it was not worth the investment and effort. The damage was not good enough and didn’t have noticeable powers. It is still on the list because of the new expansion. In the Shadow of Erdtree, these problems are to be solved. There will be an increase in the spell duration and there can also be an improvement in the damage of the spell buff. With these new changes, it may enhance your attack power. Dual Stance is going to be the key to your victory. Yet you need to go through several playthroughs to achieve the stance. This build is also one that provides you with the coolest-looking weapons while they also do electric damage.

Night and Flame Build

The build that is easily the player-favourite build with the power stance is the Flame Build. This build has one of the best weapon sets in the whole game. It has been a favoured build even before the expansion due to its damage-causing potential. It is also because, if you pair a weapon with some kind of Talisman and then you use the Regalia, you can enhance the colossal damage. Once you are charged up, you can use Regality Ash of War in one side, while it makes the damage more nuclear than it already was. 

Royal Greatsword Build

This build is considered to be one of the greatest build of all time but also according to some, it is an over-hyped one. The build’s weapons also have a high scaling possibility. They can increase the Poise Damage of these weapons. If you can build your character, it can really be the greatest experience of the entire game. The Ice of War power of the weapon is amazingly powerful and it lets you go into a hyper armour stage. When you jump simultaneously while attacking, when you are in the air, nothing can touch you. Not a weapon or not even the spell of the enemy. It can also cause damage to the enemies while you are still in the air, and you will most likely not cause frostbite with this power. But you can cause huge amounts of damage than what you can cause with your basic attacks. For this build, magic is very handy and you need do not have to invest that much. This is better than Pure Sorcerers builds just because of the destruction capability that the weapons of this build have.

Vampire Build

The Vampire Build is not the most powerful build of the entire game but it still has wonderful bleeding damages. Not only that, this build’s weapons are stylish and can do extreme damages. An amazing thing about this build is that it is dependent on its stat. It has 80 Arcane which is a great advantage that scales with the damage. So, it is not impossible for this build to cause the highest damage. Bleed is also another asset of this build. But it is not the only purpose of the build. You can use the Bloody Heel behind a shield to destroy enemies and deal with heavy damage. This build has the highest possibility for scaling and blade build-up as well. When the Arcane stat reaches 45, it is the cap for the Bleed yet we are choosing this build, keeping the Arcane stat as the centre for damages, not the bleed. The final step in making this the best build is to master the Azure of War. If you do it, your build can do unbelievable damage.  

Conclusion

To conclude this blog, we have brought to the most powerful builds that you can use in the Shadow of Erdtree. We have taken into account the damage caused, the stat, the different tiers, and the attack power. For certain builds with flaws, we have considered how many changes are going to be brought in and what scope the new expansion has for them. Though each and every build is different in its own way, nothing is inferior to the other if the character is well-made. With this as a guide, we hope it will be easy for you to choose your build and make it easier for you to slay the final boss.
