Best Weapons for Bloodhound’s Fang Builds

The only weapon you really need for the Bloodhound’s Fang PvP build is the Bloodhound’s Fang itself. For the secondary weapon, feel free to choose whichever weapon you prefer.

The key component of this build is Bloodhound’s Fang, and upgrading and putting it to good use is of importance. You will need to move around a lot so picking a lightweight shield is the best way to go about it.

For the Bloodhound’s Fang Dual Wield build, you’ll be using two Bloodhound’s Fangs. You can dual-wield a lot of weapons in Elden Ring, but two Bloodhound’s Fangs are probably the only way to go.

The reason is that the dual-wielding Bloodhound’s Fang deals the most damage compared to any other dual-wielded weapon. Also, due to its range and sweeping attacks, it proves to be highly effective.

In case you don’t know how to equip two Bloodhound’s Fangs, don’t worry. You can simply equip two of them during multiplayer. You can ask one of your friends to drop it, and you can simply equip it by saving your previous progress in the game.

Since you are dual wielding, you will not be able to use a shield, so movement is very important. You’ll be relying on rolling, dodging, and overall timing to avoid incoming attacks.

Best Armor for Bloodhound’s Fang Builds

For the Bloodhound’s Fang PvP build, the armor set you need to go with is the Black Knife Set. Despite being a heavy armor set, it enhances your stealth by decreasing the sound of your footsteps. This will help out a lot when you’re trying to back-stab enemies.

For the Bloodhound’s Fang Dual Wield build, the armor set you need to go with is the Spellblade Set. This armor set increases the potency of sorcery skills, which will help increase your damage output with this build.

Best Spells for Bloodhound’s Fang Builds

For the Bloodhound’s Fang PvP build, the best spells to use are Black Flame, Black Flame Blade.

These two spells have a quick casting time and deal significant damage. They will help you out a lot in close-range combat.

For the Bloodhound’s Fang Dual Wield Build, the best spell to use is Catch Flame. This spell also has a super quick casting speed, and it deals great Fire Damage. If Bloodhound’s Fangs don’t seem to be doing the job, you can also use the Catch Flame Incantation.

Best Skills for Bloodhound’s Fang Builds

For the Bloodhound’s Fang PvP build, the best skills to use are Bloodhound’s Finesse and Ash of War: Bloody Slash.

Bloodhound’s Finesse allows you to perform an upward slash and then, with the help of the blade’s momentum, does a somersault giving you enough distance from the enemy.

This helps you keep your distance from enemies while causing some serious damage as well, and if you follow up with a heavy attack, you can also do the Bloodhound’s Step Attack.

Bloody Slash will help you take out chunks of health using bloodloss, making the already good weapon even better.

For the Bloodhound’s Fang Dual Wield build, the best skill to use is Ash of War: Unsheathe.

Ash of War: Unsheathe will apply the Keen affinity on your deadly Bloodhound’s Fangs, giving you a dexterity boost, and since this weapon scales with Dexterity, it will give you a decent advantage
