Elden Ring is an action role-playing game set in the Lands Between. As such you will need the best weapons & armor to survive against the hordes of enemies. But what if your Enemies weren’t NPCs? PvP in Elden Ring performs very differently than your average foes. They are smarter, stronger, and will pull off some of the most infuriating strats. As such, you will need the best weapons to deal with them. In this guide, I will show the Best PvP Weapons you should be using in Elden Ring.
Best PvP Weapons in Elden Ring
The Best PvP Weapons that you should be using in Elden Ring are as follows:
Rivers of Blood
Ever since the 1.3.0 update dropped which fixed Arcane scaling on Weapons, Bleed damage has never been the same. Bleed is one of the best if not the best status conditions in the game. Get a few hits on your enemy and just watch its health drain in a few shots. The Ashes of War on the Rivers of Blood will guarantee a bleed proc if the enemy is not careful. Pair it with some Talismans like Lord Of Blood’s Exultation, Winged Sword Insignia, Shard Of Alexander, & Rotten Winged Sword Insignia will melt your enemies.
The Eclipse Shotel is a Curved sword that can inflict the Death Blight Status effect. Death Blight is a status effect that once proc’ed will insta-kill any Tarnished level Enemies. This is perfect for PvP in Elden Ring which may make it the best weapon. Your job is to land as many hits as possible till the status effect prokes, after which the game is over. To boost the effect you can run the Claw Talisman, Curved Sword Talisman, Marika’s Soreseal, & Radagon’s Soreseal.
Antspur Rapier – Best PvP Weapon in Elden Ring
The Antspur Rapier is a Thrusting Weapon in Elden Ring but that’s not why it is on this list. Antspur Rapier is the only weapon in Elden Ring that has natural Scarlet Rot & can have the Sepukku Ashes of War. Set the Weapon to Poison affinity and you will be able to deal with 3 unique status effects on a single blow. Couple that with another Antspur Rapier with the Chilling Mist Ashes of War and set that to Cold affinity.
Dual these weapons and you will be able to deal with 4 unique status effects. Now to bring the whole thing together, use the Lord Of Blood’s Exultation, Kindred Of Rot’s Exultation, Shard Of Alexander, & Rotten Winged Sword Insignia to dish out the damage.
