From Software puts many different ailments in their games which can be used by the player or used against the player. Similarly, entire builds for players can be made around a single type of ailment. This guide will help you create your own sleep build in Elden Ring.
Elden Ring Sleep Builds
Out of all the ailments in Elden Ring, sleep is the most underrated ailment in the entire game. This is mostly due to the fact that no enemy in the game inflicts sleep, and only a few weapons in the game can deal the sleep ailment. Most players don’t even know of this ailment in the game.
Flask Spread: 3 FP, rest HP
Weapon: Sword of St. Trina, St. Trina’s Torch, Any Bow, with St. Trina’s Arrows and Sleepbone Arrows
Stats: Faith (Primary), Intelligence, Dexterity (Secondary)
Skills: Mists of Slumber
Best Stats for Sleep Build
Every enemy is vulnerable to sleep but with the right distribution of stats, you can totally make the most out of it. Here are the best stats for a sleep build.
- Vigor: 49
- Mind: 15
- Endurance: 20
- Dexterity: 65
- Strength: 35
- Intelligence: 50
- Faith: 80
- Arcane: 10
Your main focus should be investing in Faith, Intelligence and Dexterity because your weapons will scale on them for the damage output.
Best Weapons for Sleep Build
Any weapon you see with St. Trina in its name is able to build up Sleep and therefore should be preferred in this build. The Sword of St. Trina sits on top of these weapons and it should be your primary weapon.
Sword of St. Trina is a straight sword that deals 66 Sleep per attack. The best thing is that it scales majorly with Faith and Dexterity, so you can use it both as a caster or a melee build. A few attacks will put your enemies to sleep and if you don’t mess it up with another attack that wakes them up, you can get an easy riposte.
The sword can be found immediately after you enter Limgrave, if you can manage to get to it in Caelid.
Best Skills for Sleep Build
Mists of Slumber is the best special skill that resonates with this build. It releases a purple mist forward to the enemies and put them to sleep. Using the skill also grants an effect that looks very similar to the Sporific Grease. This effect further increases the sleep buildup for the weapon.
As mentioned before, Sleep is the most underrated ailment in Elden Ring, but it doesn’t make it useless. Sleep Build is one of the more unique builds in Elden Ring universe and most players are not equipped to deal with it, increasing its effectiveness.
