Elden Ring Int/Faith Build Guide

If you’re looking to create the perfect Int/Faith build in Elden Ring, we’ve got you covered with this guide, where we’ll be going over the best Int/Faith build in the game.

Elden Ring Int/Faith Build

This Int/Faith build is one of the more difficult builds to work with in Elden Ring.

When you first create this build, remember that you don’t need to max out Intelligence and Faith immediately. The starting Sorceries of the Astrologer are powerful enough that you’ll be able to clear out most of Limgrave without needing to get more powerful ones.

Class: Astrologer

Flask: Flask of Wondrous Physick with Opaline Bubbletear and Cerulean Hidden Tear

Weapons: Sword of Night & FlameSacred Relic Sword, Golden Order Seal and Gelmir Glintstone Staff

Armor: Snow Witch Set

Stats: Intelligence (Primary) and Faith (Primary), Vigor (Secondary), Mind (Secondary), and Dexterity (Secondary)

Spells: Glintstone Arc, Whirl O Flame, Flame Fall Upon Them, Wrath of Gold, Roiling Magma

Ash of War: Thunderbolt

Talismans: Radagon Icon, Cerulean Amber Medallion, Flock’s Canvas Talisman, and Graven-School Talisman

Best Stats for Int/Faith Build

  • Vigor – 30
  • Mind – 30
  • Endurance – 30
  • Strength – 20
  • Dexterity – 20
  • Intelligence – 40
  • Faith – 40
  • Arcane – 9

The build utilizes two major stats that have directions of their own, and you also need Strength and Dexterity to be able to use weapons. Then you also need lots of Mind and Endurance, and Vigor is a must. Meaning that the build is high level and you will be putting in a lot of runes in this build.

Best Weapons and Armor for Int/Faith Build in Elden Ring

You need both a Staff and Holy Seal to cast incantations and sorceries. So, you’ll need to remember which spell is of which type to be able to cast them from the right item.

You won’t be slinging spells all day though; a sword is required play this build properly. We’ll be aiming for the mighty Sword of Night and Flame or Sacred Relic Sword.

Combo-ing sword attacks with invocations will be quite challenging, but if you remember to memorize the right order of your spells, you’ll get the hang of it. The melee weapons we’re using for this build scale with both Intelligence and Faith making them the perfect choice.

Don’t forget to also use the powerful skills of weapons like the Sword of Night and Flame or Sacred Relic Sword to round out your offense when spells aren’t doing it.

The Golden Order Seal works perfectly for this build as its incantation scaling also uses both Intelligence and Faith

Best Talisman for Int/Faith Build

The Cerulean Amber Medallion talisman is another great Talisman that will raise your FP by 11.

The Radagon Icon will shorten spell casting time, Flock’s Canvas Talisman will increase the potency of incantations, and the Graven-School Talisman will increase the potency of sorceries.

These four talismans will synergize perfectly, taking this build to a whole new level.

Best Spells for Int/Faith Build

When it comes to the spells, the Glintstone Arc will remain the MVP throughout your playthrough with this build, which is ironic as it is the first spell you’ll get with this build.

The Whirl O Flame spell will help you instantly take out weaker enemies, while Flame Fall Upon Them will allow you to clear out large groups of enemies. With Roiling Magma, you’ll be able to blow up enemies that aren’t yet aware of you, making it the perfect opener spell.

Wrath of Gold is the second strongest spell in this build after Glintstone Arc. It will deal good damage, but it’ll also knock enemies to the ground, allowing you to get further damage on them for free.
