How to Pick Best Keepsake in Elden Ring
The Golden Seeds is one of the best Keepsakes for Samurai, Astrologer and Vagabond. This is because it’s the perfect combination if you are planning a sorcerer build. The Golden Seed is a consumable item that you can access at the Site of Grace. It will provide you with an additional Healing Flask along with the 4 that you own at the start. It is basically a healing item that can help you survive battles, especially if you are a new player. However, there is no shortage of Golden Seed in the overworld as you progress later on.
Crimson Amber Medallion
This medallion gives a boost to your maximum HP. This is one the best keepsakes for Warrior and Vagabond in Elden Ring. It is mainly useful for characters with low Vigor stats and also others who boast of high strength and dexterity attributes. It is a must-pick keepsake for beginners. It also complements the Golden Seed quite well.
Lands Between Rune
Runes are a form of currency in Elden Ring. This keepsake can give you a good amount of runes right at the start. This keepsake is best for Samurai, Astrologer, Vagabond, Confessor, Prisoner, Bandit and Wretch. In short, you can use it for any and every class in the Lands Between.
Fanged Imp Ashes
This item can help you summon the spirits of a couple of Imps whenever you require them. It is also the best keepsake for the Astrologer class in Elden Ring. However, you will need to obtain the Spirit Calling Bell item first in order to use the keepsake.
This keepsake item can help you craft throwable bombs in the game. You will only be able to get two pots at the start of the game however. From this list, it is not the best keepsake to pick during character creation in Elden Ring.
This keepsake item can help you charm enemies. This will transform them into your allies for a short period of time. However, this can be crafted easily later on in the game. Hence, it’s not worth it at the start.
The Stonesword Key is one such keepsake item that has a mixed fanbase. Since there are so many doors in the overworld, this key can help you unlock it and access precious loot. You may often find yourself having fewer keys and encountering several doors. Hence, it’s important to stock them. However, it’s not rare to find and you will always chance upon them in your adventures if you plan on skipping it.
This is a useful keepsake if you’re trying to face strong opponents. From the five boiled prawns in your inventory, you can eat one to gain a boost on your physical damage resistance. Keep in mind that this buff lasts only for a minute.
If you plan on creating a Tank build, then this is the keepsake you need. It basically makes enemies more aggressive and attracts them towards you. If you’re ever playing co-op and want to divert the attention of the enemies away from your teammates, then Shabriri’s Woe is for you.
