Best Stats for Dex/Int Builds in Elden Ring

For the Prisoner Dex/Int build, the class we have chosen is the Prisoner, with stats focusing primarily on Dexterity and Intelligence.

Start investing points on these two stats by putting 40 on each attribute. The remaining should be put on Vigor and Mind.

Intelligence will increase the power of your magic spells, and Dexterity will increase their casting speed. These are important as you already have to keep moving or reacting fast to enemy attacks.

  • Vigor: 19
  • Mind: 20
  • Strength: 8
  • Dexterity: 40
  • Intelligence: 40
  • Faith: 8
  • Arcane: 9

For the Astrologer Dex/Int build, the class we have chosen is the Astrologer, and of course, the stats are focused on Dexterity and Intelligence.

As for your secondary stats, we have again chosen Vigor and Mind as these are the two stats that par perfectly with Dex and Int.

  • Vigor: 24
  • Mind: 24
  • Endurance: 9
  • Strength: 12
  • Dexterity: 40
  • Intelligence: 60
  • Faith: 7
  • Arcane: 9

Best Weapons for Dex/Int Builds in Elden Ring

The purpose of the Prisoner Dex/Int build will be to give you a fierce combination of melee and magic damage. With the help of this build, you will be able to defeat any boss in the game and take on other players in PvP mode.

With no points in Strength, you will only be limited to smaller weapons. We have chosen to two-hand the Rogier’s Cold Rapier, paired with Glintblade Phalanx. This rapier scales primarily with Dexterity, which works perfectly for this build.

For the Astrologer Dex/Int build, we have chosen the beloved Moonveil Katana as your main weapon. This Katana is one of the best weapons in the game, and it scales with both Dex and Int, so it works perfectly for this build.

For your secondary weapon, we’ve gone with the Wing of Astel. You can shoot magic attacks by charging heavy attacks without using any FP with this weapon. This will allow you to easily deal damage from long-range if the need arrives.

Best Armor for Dex/Int Builds in Elden Ring

For the Prisoner Dex/Int build, we have chosen different armor parts from four armor sets that will suit you for this build. These are light in weight but hard to get. You can replace some of the parts with the ones you already have.

The Banished Knight Helm will protect your head, the White Reed Armor will protect your torso, the Guardian Bracers will protect your arms, and the Bloodhound Knight Greaves will protect your legs. All of these armor pieces will individually apply multiple defense buffs to you.

For the Astrologer Dex/Int build, we have chosen the Spellblade Set. This armor set will increase the damage of your Wing of Astel weapon while also giving you decent protection.

Best Talismans for Dex/Int Builds in Elden Ring

For the Prisoner Dex/Int build, the talismans we have chosen are Erdtree’s Favor, Green Turtle, Spear Talisman, and Crimson Amber Medallion. These Talismans mainly focus on increasing your health and stamina recovery speed. The only exception is the Spear Talisman, which improves the counterattack attacks of thrust weapons.

Erdtree’s Favor will increase your maximum HP, Stamina, and Equip Load; the Green Turtle Talisman will allow you to regenerate stamina faster, and the Crimson Amber Medallion will further increase your maximum HP.

For the Astrologer Dex/Int build, the talismans we have chosen are Shard of Alexander, Radagon Icon, Moon of Nokstella, and Graven Mass Talisman.

Shard of Alexander will give your Moonveil Katana a great damage boost. Radagon Icon will greatly decrease the casting time of your spells, while the Graven Mass Talisman will give an 8% raw damage boost to all sorceries.

And finally, Moon of Nokstella will give you two extra memory slots for your spells, allowing you to add more spells to the build.

Best Spells for Dex/Int Builds in Elden Ring

The spell you need for the Prisoner Dex/Int build is Glintblade Phalanx. The Glintblade Phalanx spell lets you close in on your enemies quickly and land a fast melee attack by summoning a defensive arc of magic glintblades.

For the Astrologer Dex/Int build, the spells you need are Rennala’s Full Moon and Stars of Ruin.

Rennala’s Full Moon is an amazing AoE attack spell that applies great debuffs to targets. Stars of Ruin fire out comets that track the target, which is very useful against evasive enemies.

Best Items for Dex/Int Builds in Elden Ring

The only item you need to have for both builds is a Sprit Ash. As for what Spirit Ash you should choose, we have left it for you to decide. You can use any of your upgraded spirits with a high health bar.
