Best Weapons For Halo Scythe Builds in Elden Ring

As this is a weapon-focused build, you will be using the Halo Scythe across all builds as your main hand weapon. But, for the Faith Scythe Build, you can use the Godslayer’s Seal in your off-hand. This is an Incantation casting seal that scales mainly off of Faith.

Best Talismans for Halo Scythe Builds in Elden Ring

For the Holy Mage Halo, Scythe build, we will be using several different talismans. Shard of Alexander will give a great boost to the attack power of Miquella’s Ring of Lights. Sacred Scorpion Charm will increase holy attack power but at the cost of decreased damage negation.

If you go with Radagon’s Soreseal, you won’t have to worry about raising Vigor, Strength, and Endurance attributes. This will allow you to put more points into Faith, which will give a raw damage boost to the build.

And finally, Marika’s Soreseal will raise all attributes but increase the amount of damage you take. If you’re fine with being a glass cannon, this Talisman is the way to go.

For Faith Scythe Build, we will be using Radagon’s Soreseal and Radagon’s Scarseal. Radagon’s Soreseal and Radagon’s Scarseal will raise your attributes but increase damage taken.

Due to the great raise in attributes you’ll be getting automatically from the seals, you’ll be able to put most of your points into Faith. And since the Halo Scythe and the Godslayer’s Seal both scale heavily with Faith, your damage will be insanely high with this build.

Best Armors for Halo Scythe Builds in Elden Ring

For the Holy Mage Halo, Scythe builds, we will be using Haligtree Knight Helmet. This helmet is part of the Haligtree Knight Set and increases Faith by 2. This will be beneficial in this build.

As for the armor of the Faith, Scythe builds, the Imp Head (Wolf) will increase your survivability by applying multiple defensive buffs to you.

Best Skills for Halo Scythe Builds in Elden Ring

For the Holy Mage Halo Scythe build the Ash of War: Golden Vow is another key element of the build. It will give you and your allies a 15% increase in attack power and a 10% increase in damage negation for 80 seconds. This will help you out immensely during boss fights.

For the Faith Scythe Build, the Godslayer’s Seal will be responsible for your primary ranged attacks for this build, while the Miquella’s Ring of Lights skill of the Halo Scythe will act as your secondary ranged attack
