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.

To get the Starscourge Greatsword in Elden Ring, you’ll have to defeat Starscourge Radahn, located in Caelid. He’ll drop the “Remembrance of the Starscourge” item which you can then trade with Finger Reader Enia at the Roundtable Hold to acquire the sword.

To wield Starscourge Greatsword effectively, you’ll need to have the following stats: 38 Strength12 Dexterity, and 15 Intelligence. It comes equipped with the Starcaller Cry unique skill that pulls the enemies towards you using gravitational waves and damages them.

You can follow this attack up with an additional move that slams the energy from the sword into the ground and deals a huge blow. The Starscourge Greatsword scales primarily with Strength, Dexterity, and Strength.

Hero Class Starscourge Greatsword Build

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, your endurance stat needs to be high, to prevent fat rolling. Here are the stats we will be aiming for in Hero Class Starscourge Greatsword Build. Use the following setup:

  • Class: Hero
  • Weapon: Starscourge Greatsword (dual wield)
  • Flask Spread: HP
  • Armor: Crucible Set
  • Talismans: Carian Filigreed Crest, Godskin Swaddling Cloth, Claw Talisman, and Axe Talisman.
  • Spells: Any spirit of your choice


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

Vagabond Class Starscourge Greatsword Build

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. Make use of the following setup:


  • Vigor: 40
  • Mind: 15
  • Endurance: 30
  • Dexterity: 25

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 ClothClaw Talisman, and 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.
