Best Class for Dex Arcane Builds

For OP Dex Arcane build we recommend starting with the Vagabond class as it has excellent Vigor and Dex stats. You will only need to dump some points into Arcane for this build to be viable.

The class we will be using for the Samurai Dex Arcane build is Samurai. The reason why we use this class as it comes pre-equipped with the Uchigatana. Other than that, it has extra points in Dexterity and Endurance which will be useful for this build.

Best Weapons for Dex Arcane Builds in Elden Ring

The main weapon we will be using in this build is Eleonora’s Poleblade. It has a significant blood loss build-up passive effect. With its other listed specifications, it does extra slashes being amazing in scenarios where you need to put the enemies to rest.

Eleonora’s Poleblade has high critical damage, which will be highly useful against high-level enemies. By equipping the Eleonora’s Poleblade, you are already guaranteed a win against giant bosses.

Eleonora’s Poleblade is just a winner weapon for this build due to its speed of attacks. It has really fast attacks that can catch the enemies off-guard and result in massive high damage output.

For the Samurai Dex Arcane build, we will be using the weapon that will come pre-equipped with the Samurai class, Uchigatana. You can infuse this weapon with the Bloody Slash Ash of War. This weapon, when combined with the ashes of war will prove to be very useful in quickly building bleed.

Best Armor for Dex Arcane Builds

The Hoslo Armor set is chosen for the OP Dex Arcane build as it complements this high dexterity and arcane build nicely through its stats and bonuses.

There is no specific armor needed for the Samurai Dex Arcane build but we recommend going with whatever still lets you perform the light dodge roll.

Best Talismans for Dex Arcane Builds

In the OP Dex Arcane build when you combine your attacks with the boosting talismans, you’ll become unstoppable. The Rotten Winged Sword Insignia Talisman allows you to increase the overall effectiveness of this build by providing a damage boost to successive attacks.

The Shard of Alexander Talisman provides a boost to the attack power of different skills, which makes it quite useful. The Lord of Blood’s Exultation is also great when performing successive bleeds.

The first talisman that we will be using with the Samurai Dex Arcane build is Claw Talisman. The reason behind that is it will increase the jump attack and you can do more slashing attacks.

The other talisman that you can use with the Samurai Dex Arcane build is Radagon Icon. This will reduce the time of spell casting and you can attack your opponents more quickly.

The third and final talisman that we will be using with this build is Radagon’s Soreseal. It will increase different stats, specifically the Dexterity, Endurance, Vigor, and Strength. The downside of taking more damage is overtaken by the stat boost.

Best Spells for Dex Arcane Builds

Apart from the primary weapon, using Golden Vow in the boss fight arena boosts attack and defense powers during combat. It’s incredible for the little push you need to clear your way in OP Dex Arcane build.

As you have the Radagon’s Soreseal in the Samurai Dex Arcane build, you can combine it with the Greyoll’s Roar incantation to reduce the enemy’s attack power by 20%. This will not only reduce the enemy’s attack power but increases yours for a short time.

Best Skills for Dex Arcane Builds

Samurai Dex Arcane build uses the Ash of War: Bloody Slash that will infuse the weapon with the blood. After that, when you use this weapon on the target it will cause blood loss buildup. However, this skill has medium AoE and you can’t do much damage with it in a ranged battle.

For more advanced attacks that will deal more damage to the enemies, you can use the Ash of War: Blood Blade. This skill will cause more blood loss buildup than the Bloody Slash
