Elden Ring features stats that the player can assign points to. Each stat has its own use and can allow you to equip certain weapons or equipment. Depending on your build, you might want to prefer one stat over the other. That is why this guide will show you what does Arcane do in Elden Ring.
Arcane allows you to increase your drop rate from defeating enemies. It also increases resistance to Holy damage and resistance to the buildup of the Death Blight status condition.
There are other things that Arc does as well. So, make sure that you keep reading to find out. Without further ado, let’s jump right in and get started.
Elden Ring: What Does Arc Do?
Most players do not put points into Arcane since it seemingly is not a useful stat. If you see the image above, you will notice that I haven’t upgraded this stat either despite being 300+ level. However, this stat is useful and can help you in a number of ways.
The main purpose of Arcane is to increase your item discovery. When you kill an enemy, they have a drop rate where they drop certain items. Every weapon, equipment, or item has its own drop rate. Some are extremely rare while others are somewhat common.
So, if you want to increase this rate, make sure that you level up Arcane. Apart from this, you can also enhance your resistance to Holy damage and resistance to the buildup of the Death Blight status condition with Arcane as well.

These are just some of the weapons that can benefit from this stat. While this stat isn’t the best when it comes to weapons, it does allow you to use them more effectively. So, make sure that you put points into this stat and try out which weapon is more useful.
