Best Stats for Prophet Builds
The Prophet of Blasphemy build is a Strength and Faith Build. The main weapon of choice, Blasphemous Blade, requires 22 Strength, 21 Faith, and 15 Dexterity to use, and has D scaling in all, so we will focus on Strength and Faith.
In Prophet of Faith build, we will be keeping Faith at 60. We’ll also be using a sword in this build to restore HP when you defeat an enemy. The unique skill the weapon comes with will throw massive flames to a long distance.
The other builds can use the same stats as these with minor alterations.
Best Weapons for Prophet Builds in Elden Ring
The main weapon of choice for both Prophet of Blasphemy build and Prophet of Faith build is the Blasphemous Blade. This requires 22 Strength, 21 Faith, and 15 Dexterity to be use.
The Blasphemous blade’s main skill, ‘Taker Flames,’ will engulf the weapon in Flame, and if an enemy gets hit by it, it will steal HP from them.
For Dragon’s Prophet Build the only reason we selected Reduvia is that it scales well with arcane and can be found in the early game. You can switch it for other weapons if you want, depending on your choice. This weapon can inflict blood loss buildup on the target.
The main part of Prophet of the Greater Will build is supported by the Coded Sword and Cipher Pata. Cipher Pata can be acquired as soon as you get to Roundtable Hall, on the lower floor. The build can be acquired at the very start of the game and can be easily leveled up from there, without much grind.
The weapons scale with Faith exclusively, so you can freely invest as much as you like without any compromise to your non-casting damage.
Best Armor for Prophet Builds
The Crucible Tree Set is a Heavy Weight armor that you will be using in Prophet of Faith build. This armor set will increase the defense from both magical and physical attacks.
Moreover, it will help you negate the status effect, so it is a great armor to have in the battle against different bosses in Elden Ring. The other Prophet class builds don’t require any specific armor.
Best Talismans for Prophet Builds
For Prophet of Blasphemy build you can simply switch it out for Starscourge Heirloom, which will increase your strength.
Two Fingers Heirloom, a bump to Faith in addition to a variety of stats. One special thing about this talisman is that you can remove it after casting a weapon buff and the buff will remain intact.
The weapon buff will work even if your final Faith stat without the talisman is lower than what is required by the weapon buff. Hence, allowing you to play around with numerous stats and buffs.
Prosthesis-Wearer Heirloom talisman affects your dexterity and has even got a better version named Millicent’s Prosthesis.
Flock’s Canvas Talisman used in the build gives a huge rise to your incantations power (7.5%) and has multiple stacks multiplicatively with other buffs. Fire Scorpion’s Charm talisman increases the attack power of the players at the cost of decreasing the defense on the other hand.
The last talisman is FP oriented. Carian Filigreed Crest talisman reduces the FP consumption by the skills and decreases the skill consumption by 25%. It is used so that we can spam the Weapon Skill of Blasphemous Blade, Taker’s Flame.
For Blood Dragon’s Prophet build our main focus is Marika’s Soreseal talisman. If you are wondering what Marika’s Soreseal talisman is, it significantly raises your attributes at the cost of increased damage taken.
The Shard of Alexander Talisman increases the attacking capabilities of your skills. If you are using the Cipher Pata, then its special skill will smash the enemies incredibly in Prophet of Greater Will build.
Best Spells for Prophet Builds
The two spell, Golden Vow and Flame, Grant Me Strength help increase your damage, both physical as well as fire, whilst also increasing your resistance of your Prophet of Blasphemy build.
Since in Blood Dragon’s Build, the two types of spells you are using are completely different from each other, you have a good chance against enemies who are resistant to any one of these.
A spell-like Elden Stars will let you throw gold color projectiles that will burst into smaller projectiles and damage the enemies. You can continue to move while casting this spell.
The other spell we will be using along with that is Frenzied Burst which will release the concentrated blast of the Flame of frenzy. This can easily break the enemy guard.
Best Skills for Prophet Builds
This skill is called Contagious Fury, which will boost the damage by 20% for 30 seconds. However, since it is a greatshield, it does decrease player mobility. This one is for the Prophet of Faith Build. Other builds don’t need any special skill.
