Best Holy Weapons In Elden Ring

Holy Weapons do Holy damage that works great against enemies such as skeletons, undead, mariners, and humanoids in Elden Ring.

Holy weapons are another type of weapon you can equip in Elden Ring for both advantages and disadvantages.

Firstly, the Holy damage you get to do with these weapons is only impressive against certain types of enemies; mainly the undead and humanoids. Your Holy weapons do not do well against most bosses and shardbearers in Elden Ring.

If you are still interested in building yourself a holy crusader or knight, here are the best Holy weapons you need to have in Elden Ring.

How Holy damage works in Elden Ring

Holy Damage is one of the four Elemental Damage types in Elden Ring. It is used to eliminate enemies such as skeletons, undead, mariners, death rite birds, crabs, and humanoids.

Holy damage penetrates your enemy’s guard and leaves them defenseless in Elden Ring. This gives you the advantage of doing full damage to them and ignoring their resistance.

Keep in mind that most of the enemies such as bosses are not vulnerable to Holy Damage and it only scales the best with Faith builds.
