Elden Ring provides the sorcerers with several weapons that can be scaled with the Intelligence attribute. The intelligence scaling helps you in performing some of the best glintstone sorceries through several weapons in Elden Ring.

You can boost your sorceries’ damage by equipping the best intelligence scaling weapons in Elden Ring. So invest your hard-earned runes into intelligence attributes to experience the devastating power of intelligence-scaled weapons and enjoy the ride as a sorcerer in Elden Ring.

Before knowing the best intelligence weapons, exploring this attribute fully in Elden Ring is essential.

How Intelligence works in Elden Ring

The intelligence attribute is the primary stat you need to look after if you plan to complete Elden Ring as a sorcerer. You need to polish this attribute to perform high-level sorceries. Additionally, Intelligence is the primary requirement when it comes to equipping the spell-casting weapons.

In Elden Ring, each weapon has minimum stat requirements to be fulfilled to equip the weapon. You need to invest your ruins in Intelligence or Faith for the spell-based weapons.

Investing in Intelligence improves your magic power, and the scaled sorceries deal more damage. At the same time, you enjoy more excellent magic resistance due to the higher intelligence attribute in Elden Ring.

To buff your magic weapons in Elden Ring, you just have to earn runes and utilize them to level up Intelligence by resting at any Site of Grace.

With the understanding of this attribute, let us dive straight into the best intelligence-scaling weapons so you can wield them to become the Elden Lord by destroying your enemies in Elden Ring.

Best Intelligence weapons to use in Elden Ring

You get the opportunity to wield two intelligence-scaled weapons while equipping Crystal Sword, making it possible to deal good damage using the combination of weapons. The Spinning slash skill of this sword allows you to inflict damage on multiple enemies within a short range.

Like all other strength weapons, the offensive side of Fallingstar Beast Jaw is second to none and is regarded as being hard-hitting in Elden Ring. It has the ability Gravity Bolt, which allows it to laugh bolts onto enemies and deal damage from a distance.

It is more of a mid-game weapon, and you can increase its damage output by upgrading it using the Somber Smithing Stone. This will increase its Intelligence and strength stat.
