Best Faith Weapons In Elden Ring

This guide will cover the best Faith Weapons in Elden Ring as we will go over all of them in detail and tell you where to find them.

Faith is an interesting attribute to understand. The best Faith weapons will allow you to do various elemental damage to enemies at the same time.

So, imagine inflicting Fire and Holy damage on a single target. It becomes difficult for enemies to have resistance against all types of elemental damage, allowing you to find at least one damage type that bypasses all of their defenses.

Your main goal for a full Faith build should be to find a good Faith weapon to boost your Faith stats. That is how you are going to increase your damage for the late game. This is important because Faith builds tend to fall in terms of damage against late-game bosses.

How Faith works in Elden Ring

Before selecting the best faith weapons you need to know about the Faith stats as well. This ability allows you to cast incantations along with equipping yourselves with weapons with decent faith scaling.

Keep in mind that the stronger the incantation the higher the faith requirement will be for that, so you need to invest in Faith stat if you are a magic user or if you want to cast incantations in Elden Ring.

In order to apply faith scaling to weapons you will have to equip the ash of war ability. This will increase the base faith scaling of your desired weapon.

So basically, faith builds allow you to switch incantations to match the challenge ahead but what makes the faith buildup powerful is by having the best faith weapons in your arsenal.
