Eldenring, like other recent games from From Software, is often thought of as a sword-and-shield combat game, but it is very effective in using magic to overcome the horrors that the world stands before you. Therefore, the “Best Faith Weapons” attribute and the weapons associated with that attribute play an important role.
Best Faith Weapons builds offer a unique blend of magic and melee combat and can add a different feel to the overall experience. It is important to understand that in those darkest moments when the challenges you face feel insurmountable, a little faith may be all that is needed in those moments of despair.
The Best 5 Faith Weapons
#5. Golden Halberd
Golden Halberd is a Faith weapon that is only useful in builds that focus on improving the Strength attribute. Along with Faith’s D grade scaling, it requires at least 30 Strengths to meet the requirements for its effective use. Golden Vow Ash of War’s abilities buff attack and defense significantly, albeit for a short time.
Remember the Tree Sentinel roaming the field in front of the Erle Church in the early stages of “The Elden Ring”? To get the Golden Halberd, you must defeat this golden armor-clad rider.
#4. The Blackblade of Gargoyles
When it comes to gargoyle weapons, you may wonder. Why is the Blackblade superior to the Black Halberd, and the answer is simple? Not only is it a large sword, a weapon type familiar to the average player. But it also has a D-grade faith scaling and requires only 18 Strengths.
If you encounter the Kindred Gargoyle boss in the Forbidden Lands. You will receive both of their weapons as a reward. However, you will have to fight both of them at the same time, so be prepared for that.
The beauty of the Uchigatana is that even though it is essentially not a weapon of faith, it can be transformed into something that can do damage in a faith-focused build. If you did not start the game with the Samurai class, you would need to head to Deathtouched Catacombs and get it from your inventory.
You will also need to use the “Sacred Whetstone” to mold the “Uchigatana” into a “Sacred Uchigatana.” This will give the weapon both Faith Scaling and Holy damage. In addition, to complete the Faith conversion of the Uchigatana, the weapon must be equipped with an Ash of War called Unsheathe.
#2. Cipher Pata
Elden Ring may provide you with a weapon early in the game, but you won’t be able to use it for quite some time; Cipher Pata is available as soon as you are transferred to Roundtable Hold. It can be found on the bed in the room by jumping down from the central ledge and going left.
You need 30 faith to use the Cipher Pata, so if you want to take advantage of the ashes of war called Holy Damage and Unblockable Blades, you will need to invest heavily in faith from the start of the game.
#1. Corded Sword
You will be hard-pressed to find a more effective faith-based weapon in the Elden Ring than the “Cord Sword.” It is located in the Lower Capital Church of Liurnia. To use this sword, you need an attribute value of 20 or higher in Faith.
Upgrades can bring the faith scale to an S rank, but even before that, it is still a weapon with a B rank on the faith scale at first, so it is worth wielding. It also has its own Ash of War called the “Holy Blade Slash,” which is quite useful and fun.
