Elden Ring Starscourge Greatsword Builds Guide

This Elden Ring guide will provide two Starscourge Greatsword Builds for you to use based on our experience with the game. All of the stats, talismans, and armor sets required for the builds are also mentioned.

Elden Ring Starscourge Greatsword Builds

Many weapons in Elden Ring come with mind-blowing stats that you can use to make a build around them, and one such weapon is the Starscourge Greatsword.

The weapon requires 38 Strength, 12 Dexterity, and 15 Intelligence to make good use of it. It also comes equipped with the Starcaller Cry unique skill that pulls the enemies towards you using gravitational waves and damages them.

You can also follow up with an additional attack that slams the energy from the sword in the ground and deals a huge blow.

You will get the Starscourge Greatsword from Enia found at the Roundtable Hold after defeating Starscourge Radahn.

Best Stats for Starscourge Greatsword Builds

For the Hero Class Starscourge Build, we will focus on Strength as our major attribute and Vigor. The Starscourge Greatsword is extremely heavy, and therefore, we need to get our endurance high enough, allowing us to use the sword without fat-rolling. Here are the stats we will be aiming for in Hero Class Starscourge Greatsword Build.


  • Vigor: 50
  • Mind: 10
  • Endurance: 30
  • Dexterity: 15
  • Strength: 50
  • Intelligence: 20
  • Faith: 8
  • Arcane: 11

For our Vagabond Starscourge Greatsword, we will focus on creating a quality build for using the weapon and investing in both attributes to increase the damage output. This allows us to have more variety in the build, and additional options will be available for the player in this build.


  • Vigor: 40
  • Mind: 15
  • Endurance: 30
  • Dexterity: 25
  • Strength: 40
  • Intelligence: 20
  • Faith: 9
  • Arcane: 7

Best Talismans for Starscourge Greatsword Builds in Elden Ring

For the Hero Class Starscourge Greatsword Build, we will be working with the Carian Filigreed Crest, Godskin Swaddling Cloth, Claw Talisman, and the Axe Talisman.

Since we are focusing on a brute build here, we need to make sure that we don’t have to depend on any of the other attributes to solely invest in what we are focusing on. Carian Filigreed Crest will allow us to use the Starscourge skill without taxing too much of our FP.

The rest of the talismans we are using enhance our damage output. The Godskin Swaddling Cloth replenishes our HP with successive attacks, allowing us to trade attacks with other enemies.

The Axe Talisman and Claw Talisman increase the damage of Charged attacks and Jump attacks, respectively, allowing you to chew through your enemy’s health as quickly as possible.

For Vagabond Class Starscourge Greatsword, we are only recommending the Great-Jar Arsenal. Since we will be spreading out the stats in this build, we need to make sure that we can use all-out equipment without sacrificing any of our mobility.

Best Armors for Starscourge Greatsword Builds

For the hero Class Starscourge Build, we preferred the Crucible tree Armor set. The only reason for this choice is that wearing the full armor provides you with a 15% damage increase and the excellent defense it provides.

For Vagabond Class Starscourge Build, we recommend using the Bull-Goat set. You have versatile stats, and the Bull goat Armor will make your defenses go as high as they can be. Bull Goat armor set has the highest defense and poise, so you can even be a little carefree in your approach to every fight.
