This article will look into a melee caster build in Elden Ring that is quite powerful. Before we get started let’s look into the Pros of this build.
In the open-world fantasy RPG game, Elden Ring you can equip your character with different abilities and spells. Since most of the main bosses in Elden Ring are hard to defeat by conventional means these abilities help a lot in combat.
- High survivability
- Less flask usage
- Tremendous damage
- Fast casting speed
- No interruption
- Good riding
For your main weapon, you’re going to have a Keen Spear, we take this because we can place the ash of war on top of it, The scaling on dexterity would be B, this is a dexterity build so you increase your damage for your physical weapon while increasing your casting speed. One of the few cons of the spears is that they do not have an area of effect damage which is why we have a straight sword to accompany it.
We will be placing the ash of war on the shield, we will be using the barricade shield for this build, next up we have our finger seal for our incantations you can also swap this for your desired staff.
choose any good armor of your liking, next we have the spear talisman, this is what will increase our quite significantly, it is one of the most important parts of our build and gives us a needed boost. We will also be using a lot of stamina for which we will be using the green turtle talisman.
This build does have a lot of good parts to it to name a few it is the best ones for doing damage while riding, since we have high dexterity it is unlikely that we will be thrown down from our horse.
I should also mention the fact that it is a highly melee-based build where you can see the spear talisman help you out a lot during battles, the spear also has a lot of enhanced counter-attacks thanks to this and it works like a charm, you also have a very gorgeous and gross casting speed that great in battles.
If you are more into the melee style of gameplay it is recommended to improve your endurance and dexterity as they come in handy which is quite self-explanatory but if you are going with a mage build then it is recommended to upgrade your faith, mind, and dexterity if you can also try upgrading your intelligence as that might also come in handy.
This is a great build that will carry you through the entire game in easy mode and is quite fun also, I highly recommend you give this a try if you haven’t already, I also highly recommend checking this video below to get a more visual representation of how good this build actually is.
