Best Elden Ring Arcane Builds

Here are some of the Best Arcane Builds to be used in Elden Ring.

Arcane is one of the main attributes of a player. It is primarily used in increasing your Discovery Stat. But it is also used in scaling certain weapons that use Intelligence or Faith. It is a very useful stat and can bring some interesting & broken builds. In this guide, I will show you the Best Arcane Builds in Elden Ring.

The Arcane stat doesn’t affect most weapons in the game. The only time it has an effect is when the Weapon, Spell, or Incantation has scaling on Arcane. In those cases, Arcane will affect the amount of Bleed Buildup, increases Vitality & increases Holy Defense. As such, Bleed Builds are pretty strong with Arcane. But that is not the only Build you can make with Arcane. Here are the Best Arcane Builds in Elden Ring.
