Golden Halberd is one of the strongest weapons in Elden Ring that can spell trouble for your enemies with the right build. What makes this weapon fearsome is its holy damage. As most enemies and bosses don’t carry around holy resistance, this makes it easier for it to penetrate their defenses. But this weapon is not easy to wield. You can get it quite early by beating the Tree Sentinel. It required you to have the following stats Strength 30, Dexterity 14, and Faith 12. Once you manage to level up your strength the reward will be worth it. So in this guide let us take a look at the best build to go with the Golden Halberd in Elden Ring.
Best Golden Halberd Build for Elden Ring
- Golden Greatshield (Weight is 17)
- Beast Champion Set (Combined Weight is 40.1)
- Malformed Dragon Set (Combined Weight is 38)
- Sacred Scorpion Charm (Weight is 0.8)
- Stats to level up
The above build is focused on the heavier side. The main reason is if you are going to use the Golden Halberd you are probably going for a strength-based build. This is because it requires you to have minimum of 30 Strength in order to wield the weapon. The Golden Greatshield gives you good resistance not only to physical attack but also from other Elemental damage. As for the armor both the Beast Champion and Malformed Dragon set are good as they give heavy physical damage resistance. Lastly, the Talisman Sacred Scorpion Charm raises your holy attack. Thus making any holy damage dealt by the golden halberd even deadlier.
While the above talisman gives holy damage a boost, don’t forget to use the weapon skill of Golden Halberd. Golden Vow is its weapon skill, it costs 40 FP to use. While this skill is not chargeable, it gives you a buff to your weapon damage.
