Elden Ring Colossal Power Stance: Best Swords & Weapons To Use

Here are the best Colossal swords and weapons for power stancing in Elden Ring.

Colossal swords are some of the best weapons to Power stance with, in Elden Ring. They are really heavy, and thus deal a lot of damage to your enemies. Now imagine attacking them with two such weapons. The amount of damage to their HP and Poise easily gets doubled. So in this guide check out the best Colossal swords and weapons for Powerstancing in Elden Ring.


Best Colossal Swords & Weapons to Power Stance in Elden Ring

The best Colossal Swords for Powerstancing are:

  • Greatsword + Ruins Greatsword

Alternatively, you can also use: Greatsword + Zweihander

The best Colossal Weapons for Powerstancing are:

  • Prelate’s Inferno Crozier + Giant-Crusher

Alternatively, you can also use: Dragon Greatclaw + Dragon Greatclaw

Do remember you can only power stance with weapons of same class. So you cannot power stance a Greatsword with a Prelate’s Inferno Crozier. This is because one of them is a colossal sword while the other a colossal weapon. And of course you need to equip these weapons on both your hands so using a shield is not an option. Now that we know the basics of powerstancing, here is why you should use the above recommended weapons:


Greatsword + Ruins Greatsword – Colossal Swords

There are multiple reasons for these weapon combos. Lets us start with getting them. You can get both of these weapons in Caelid, which is fairly early or mid-game. Next is the damage output, not only do you do a ton of physical damage with these weapons. But Ruins Greatsword also allows you to do a bit of Magic damage.


The thing is both these weapons weigh 23. So you need to have a decent equip load in order to be able to do Medium rolls while using them. But you also need good stats for effectively using them. Here are the stat requirements for both:

  • Greatsword
    • Strength: 31
    • Dexterity: 12
  • Ruins Greatsword
    • Strength: 50
    • Dexterity: 16

The good thing is that they have plenty of damage output, Greatsword has 164 base physical damage while Ruins Greatsword has 124 base physical damage. Don’t worry with Ruins Greatsword you also get 37 base magic damage. Thus making this powerstancing combo very effective against a lot of enemies.

Although, if your equip load isn’t high enough or if you are still leveling up your strength then use the following Colossal swords for Powerstancing.

Greatsword with Zweihander. Zweihander is a good alternative because not only is it very light with a weight of only 15.5 but its base physical damage is also 141. You also need fairly low stats for wielding it. It needs:

  • Strength: 19
  • Dexterity: 11

Prelate’s Inferno Crozier + Giant-Crusher – Colossal Weapons

This is a very broken combination when powerstancing Colossal Weapons. Prelate’s Inferno Crozier has a base physical damage of 156 and Giant-Crusher has a base physical damage of 155. Thus when powerstancing with them you should be able to deal a lot of poise damage to your enemies while chipping away chunks of their health. It does come at a price though, and that is their weight.

Prelate’s Inferno Crozier has a weight of 23.5 while Giant-Crusher has a weight of 26.5. And what makes this build even harder to use are its stat requirements.

  • Prelate’s Inferno Crozier requires:
    • Strength: 45
    • Dexterity: 8
  • Giant-Crusher requirements:
    • Strength: 60

So when powerstancing with these weapons you will most likely be using the lightest armor in your inventory. Since both these weapons allow you to change their Ash of War, I suggest you use Lion’s Claw with them.

But in case you are looking for a lighter build, then here are the weapons that you should use.

Dragon Greatclaw with Dragon Greatclaw. You will require two playthroughs of the game to get it or will need a friend to give their Dragon Greatclaw to you. But once you have them, that is where the real damage begins. Dragon Greatclaw weighs only 16 and has fairly low requirements, to use it your stats should be:

  • Strength: 30
  • Dexterity: 14

But it has a base physical damage of 120 and base lightning damage of 78. So you can add to the variety of damage you can deal with these weapons.
