Elden Ring Reduvia Dagger Builds Guide

The following guide will help players with not one but two Elden Ring Reduvia Dagger builds to dish out the most damage as possible while surviving skirmishes.

Elden Ring Reduvia Dagger Builds

The Reduvia Dagger is a very powerful melee weapon in Elden Ring which scales with Strength and Dexterity.

What makes this weapon unique is that even though it is a melee weapon that performs best in backstab attacks, it can also do decent damage from mid-range. However, to take the full benefit from this weapon, you need to create the right build for it.

To help you out with that, below we’ve listed down the two best builds for the Reduvia Dagger in Elden Ring.

Best Flask for Reduvia Dagger Builds

For the Reduvia Dagger Early Game Build, get the Flask of Wondrous Physick as soon as you can. And if you add an Opaline Bubbletear to the mix, you’ll get a shield that negates the first damage received.

For the Dual Reduvia Dagger Build, high FP is necessary for making your spells and skills more effective. So, pay attention on investing for the Focus Points for this build.

Best Stats for Reduvia Dagger Builds

The best stats for both the Reduvia Dagger Builds are Endurance and Dexterity. Endurance will help you to enhance your stamina and equip load. Dexterity will help you to scale your weapon and wield it more effectively. Also, it will increase the damage dealt by Reduvia.

Keeping Arcane as a secondary stat is important to increase the effectiveness of your spells by acting as a modifier. Vigor is important too, as some enemies and bosses will one-shot you if you don’t have any health to tank the hits.

Best Weapons for Reduvia Dagger Builds

This Reduvia Dagger Early Game build is designed for new players who want to have a great DPS build right from the get-go. This build is purely based around offense. If your enemy bleeds, you’ll be able to deal some serious damage with this build.

Both weapons (Reduvia and Great Knife) have blood loss build-up which quickly stacks up on enemies and bleeds them dry. However, you’ll need to have your dodge and roll game on point to be able to stay alive.

To use this build to its fullest potential, you need to learn art of dagger combos. Start your combos with a right quick attack and end them with one or two presses of left quick attack. With this combo, you’ll be able to mow down your enemies.

This build is probably the most overpowered bleed build in Elden Ring. The two Reduvia Daggers used for this build can easily overpower any enemy that is affected by bleed.

For Dual Reduvia Dagger Build, you’ll need to get two Reduvia Daggers. You can get the first Reduvia Dagger from the Agheel Lake North Site of Grace. From the Site of Grace, head towards the bridge over the river to the south-east. Go under the bridge and head north along the river until you’re direct to the east of the Site of Grace.

Defeat Bloody Finger Nerijus and he’ll drop a Reduvia dagger. To get the second dagger, you’ll need to get a friend to make a new character and get the Reduvia dagger for themselves. Once they’ve done that, if they summon you to their world, you’ll be able to get the dagger from them.

The Reduvia dagger performs well in both close and mid-range battles, so this build is surprisingly well-rounded if the opponent can bleed. If you’re up close to an enemy, begin your combo attack with a right quick attack and end it with one or two presses of left quick attack. This will quickly stack up bleeds on the enemy.

Best Skills for Reduvia Dagger Builds

For the Ash of War for Reduvia Dagger Early Game Build, the default one of the Reduvia is already good enough; and it cannot be changed anyway. But for the Great Knife, the Ash of War should be exchanged for anything that has a Keen version, such as Quickstep.

Coming to Dual Reduvia Build, you can make use of Reduvia Blood Blade as a useful skill. It is a unique skill which cause hemorrhaging by launching projectiles towards the enemies.

Best Talismans for Reduvia Dagger Builds

Talismans for both the builds are same, Arsenal and Assassin’s Crimson Dagger. Arsenal is a useful Talisman, as it raises the maximum equipment load. The strongest version of Arsenal Talisman is Great Jar’s Arsenal Talisman.

Moreover, you can make use of Assassin’s Crimson Dagger. This Talisman can help you restore your HP while performing a critical hit against the enemies
