Faith is required to cast incantations in Elden Ring, a weird cousin of sorcery. Plus, many weapons scale off Faith too. Faith builds are flashy to play with, and building properly can be devastating. That is why we will show you the 15 best Faith weapons in Elden Ring.
There are a lot of weapons in Elden Ring, but only a few of them deserve to be on this list. The weapons chosen all have good stats and scale extremely well with Faith. With that said, let’s dive right in and check out the 15 best Faith weapons in Elden Ring.
The Blasphemous Blade is a cool-looking greatsword that has a unique look. If you are doing PvP, your opponents will surely fear you due to how intimidating this weapon looks. The best part about this weapon is that its skill heals 10% of your max HP plus a base 150 HP upon each hit of an enemy.
As for the stats, you get Str D, Dex D, and Fai D., What’s more, is that you can even heal yourself without using your skill. While the healing is significantly reduced, it is still better than having no healing at all. This will allow you to stay in the fight longer and without wasting any Flasks.
If you want one of the best greatswords in Elden Ring, certainly pick this up. To get it, you must progress through the game and reach the Volcano Manor. Here, you will have to face Rykard, Lord of Blasphemy. Defeating him will give you his Remembrance.
Once you have the Remembrance of the Blasphemous, trade it with Enia at the Roundtable Hold to get this amazing weapon.
The Winged Scythe has great Faith scaling, to begin with, and it only gets better with each upgrade. The Ash of War it has – Angel’s Wings – is the best, where its initial strike staggers most enemies and the second hit does amazing damage on top of great reach. Also, this weapon has bleed buildup too and we all know that mechanic is extremely powerful in Elden Ring.
If you are having issues against enemies with high armor, make sure that you pick up the Winged Scythe and slice them in half. Plus, you can also use it to close the gap between you and your foe quickly.
While I’m not the biggest fan of sythes in Elden Ring, I cannot deny that the Winged Scythe is one of the best bleed weapons in the game. Plus, you can find this amazing weapon in the Tombsward Ruins which is near the area where you start the game. So, if you want a good bleed weapon with your FAI build, make sure that you pick it up early in the game as soon as you start.
However, as you can see, it requires a high FAI rating before you can properly equip it. So, it might take a while before you can fully utilize this weapon.
Golden Order Greatsword
While most players overlook this weapon due to its relatively mediocre stats, you cannot deny how awesome it looks. The design of this greatsword is one of the best I’ve seen in Elden Ring and the stats are quite decent as well.
Its scaling stats are Str E, Dex D, and Fai C. If you upgrade this sword, you’ll find out that the scaling is superb and this weapon can deal tons of damage. So, if you are going for a mix of Dexterity and Faith build, this greatsword will come in handy. To properly wield it, you must have 16 Str, 21 Dex, and 28 Fai.
Getting this weapon is easier said than done. It is found inside the Cave of the Forlorn. You need to defeat the Misbegotten Crusader to get it. The boss fight is somewhat difficult as the entire area is quite high-leveled, but if you have fought the Leonine Misbegotten, this fight is extremely similar to that.
Maliketh’s Black Blade
As the name suggests, you can get this weapon after defeating Maliketh. When you first see this weapon, it will not have the best stats when it comes to Faith weapons. However, after upgrading it a few times, it is one of the best Faith weapons in the game.
Plus, you can take a page right out of Maliketh’s book by using its ability – Destined Death. You will swing the blade around your character, which deals a lot of Holy damage. This is a great skill that can help you take out enemies that get too close to you or surround you.
On top of that, if the enemy gets hit, their maximum HP will be lowered briefly, and their health will be drained as well for a short time. This puts a lot of pressure on the player, especially in PvP.
Fans of the Dex/Fai build will want to get this weapon as soon as possible. Thanks to the high base stats and its ability – Queen’s Black Flame – you can quickly dispose of any person standing in your way. The skill boosts your fire damage and leaves a lasting effect in the form of the burn effect.
If you master the timing of this skill, you can keep the enemy burning and they will take a lot of damage over the duration of the fight.
Sword of Night and Flame
The Sword of Night and Flame was my go-to weapon for the majority of my Intelligence playthrough. It is one of the best weapons for the mid-game due to its scaling and stats. This sword has three unique forms of attack, which provide variety to the user.
Wielding it requires 12 STR, 12 DEX, 24 FAI, and 24 INT. As you can see, this isn’t purely an intelligence-based sword but it requires Faith as well. Since you can get this weapon relatively in the early game, it offers STR E, DEX E, INT D, and FAI D in scaling. Once upgraded, however, that’s a different story.
However, once you meet the requirements, you can use its ability depending on the stance you are using. Using a heavy attack in the Night and Flame stance will summon a wave of flames that deals an insane amount of damage.
Similarly, if you use a light attack, you’ll summon a Night Comet that has a decent range. Despite getting nerfed in an update, this weapon still holds up against all bosses. But, the nerfs were enough to drop it into the B-tier.
Sacred Relic Sword
Moving on to the Sacred Relic Sword. It is easily one of the best greatswords in Elden Ring thanks to its high damage, and amazing stats. Players going for a hybrid of Faith and Dex builds will love this weapon. Apart from its stats, the weapon looks amazing and will intimidate your foes instantly.
As for the stats, you get Str E, Dex D, and Fai D. As with most weapons on this list, the scaling is great but you can make it much better by upgrading it. If you want to use this weapon properly, you need to have 14 Str, 24 Dex, and 22 Fai.
To get this weapon, you must defeat Radagon and the Elden Beast. When you get the Elden Remembrance, trade it with Enia at the Roundtable Hold and get this weapon. Since you can only get this after completing the game, it is only recommended for post-game PvP or NG+.
Gargoyle’s Black Blades is a Twinblade in Elden Ring. The Gargoyle’s Black Blades scales primarily with Strength, Dexterity, and Faith and is a good weapon for inflicting Holy damage. If you are going for a Strength / Faith hybrid build, this Twin Blade is extraordinary thanks to its scaling and overall stats.
This weapon can be dropped by Black Blade Kindred at the Forbidden Lands just before Mountaintops of the Giants. Since this is a late-game weapon, you’ll have to fight strong enemies and bosses to get it.
Like other scythes, the Halo Scythe is an amazing weapon that does a lot of bleed damage. It is extremely easy to build up bleed if you hit the enemy. On top of that, it also deals Holy damage that scales from your Faith stat.
Its skill – Miquella’s Ring of Light – casts a ring of Holy damage that fires at the enemy’s current location. It forces the enemy player to run away and quickly reposition. During this time, you can run at them and strike them while they are vulnerable.
While this isn’t exactly a Strength weapon, it still has phenomenal scaling. Leveling it up a bit will cause it to have a C in Strength scaling which makes it superb. On top of that, if you are planning to go for a Strength / Faith hybrid build, the Golden Halberd is a great choice. You can use its ability – Golden Vow – to increase your attack and defense powers for about 45 seconds.
The best part is that you can get this weapon pretty early on after defeating the Tree Sentinal. However, you will need a Strength of 30 to equip it. If you are fighting an enemy while using your trust steed, Torrent, using this Halberd will prove beneficial. The wind-up time is quite decent and you can get a good range from it as well.
Prince of Death’s Staff
Prince of Death’s Staff is a Glintstone Staff in Elden Ring. The Prince of Death’s Staff scales primarily with Intelligence and Faith and is a good weapon for death sorceries. This staff has good scaling with E in STR, D in INT, and D in Faith. If you are someone who uses a lot of Dark Sorceries, then this weapon is ideal for you as it boosts that effect.
You can get this staff in the Deeproot Depths by making your way across the map and finding it in a tower when you are climbing the large roots. One of the good parts about this staff is that it is light in weight so you don’t have to worry about having a heavy load.
Blade Of Calling
Blade of the Calling is ideal for players that are going for a Dex and Faith build combined. Since it has a good Fai rating, you can use this to deal tons of damage to enemies. This weapon requires 6 STR, 13 DEX, and 15 FAI to use.
While it has a decent amount of physical damage, the primary damage comes in the form of holy damage with its regular attacks. On top of that, using its skill – Blade Of Gold – allows you to deal an insane amount of Holy damage on your enemies. It also allows you to get out of sticky situations since you spin around the dagger and jump in the air while using this skill.
If you have completed Elden Ring, you will know that this is the weapon that Radagon uses. It is an amazing weapon that packs a strong punch. Plus, its unique skill – Gold Breaker – allows you to do strong AOE damage and a high amount of both holy and physical damage.
However, the reason why it’s so low on the list is that you need to beat Elden Ring to get this weapon. Other than that, it is worth getting this hammer and defeating everyone in PvP.
You can get this amazing Faith weapon after defeating Godrick the Grafted in Stormveil Castle. You will need 20 STR, 14 DEX, and 16 FAI to properly wield it. Plus, despite being a fist-type weapon, it has a good amount of reach thanks to its skill.
However, without its skill, you need to get up close and personal with the enemy to attack them. This can often leave you in sticky situations so be careful while using this weapon. If you want to use a dragon as a weapon, this fist is more than worth it for a good Faith build.
Finally, this is a great spear that scales primarily with Strength, Dexterity, and Faith. It is a great weapon that has a medium reach when in melee combat. You can take advantage of the reach and damage the enemy while they try to attack you.
If you are curious to know where you can find it, we’ve got you covered. You can find this spear by killing the Abductor Virgins in Volcano Manor’s underground. Since the drop rate is a bit low, you will have to kill multiple enemies to get it. If you are lucky enough, you might even find it during the first few tries.
This spear has a skill called Charge Forth.
You can use this to track enemies and run straight at them. While that sounds simple, it is surprisingly difficult to hit considering you run straight ahead. If you manage to hit the enemies, you can cause Bleed damage to build up after every hit thanks to its passive.
And there you have it; those are the 15 best Faith weapons in Elden Ring. If you are going for a Faith build in your current playthrough, make sure that you try out some of these weapons and see if you like them or not. Certain weapons like are extremely viable in PvP as well.
