Whether you’re looking for magic damage or pure physical damage, we’ll do our best to cover all the excellent choices as much as possible.

Let’s get started!

Understanding the Best Faith Weapon in Elden Ring for Faith Builds

One of the best features of Elden Ring is the freedom to build your characters in any way you want.

Despite being a young game, we have seen quite a lot of Elden Ring faith builds on the internet.

5 Most Common Faith Builds in 2023

1. Paladin

Paladin is heavy weaponry and magic intertwined. This build focuses on damage and defense.

It is designed to receive enormous damage while having the capability to dish out massive damage as well.

2. Dragon Priest

As the name suggests, dragon priests are powerful faith casters with devastating draconic spells in their arsenal.

They are the best players to use dragon items in the games, whether spells or weaponry. 

3. Blackflame Apostle

A Blackflame apostle is a dexterity and faith attribute character that harnesses Black Flame to help boost damage to level the playing field.

With faith and mind as the primary stats, they are ferocious when Bloody Slash is used effectively.

4. Sword Sage

Having intelligence and faith for primary stats, sword sages are versatile characters that can use the Sword of Night and Flame stance with amazing precision and effectiveness.

Using skills like the Rancorcall, dealing with multiple enemies is a breeze, thanks to its attack power.

5. Lightning Lancer

The lightning lancer is a very challenging build. With strength, faith, and endurance as your primary stats, surviving in long and drawn-out battles can pose quite a challenge.

Blocking and counterattacking are the most common roles of this build.

Best Faith Weapon in Elden Ring – Top 5 Picks

As much as we would like to rank these faith-scaling weapon types, we would rather feature them on an equal platform so you can actually try and see which weapon works best with every style of play.

Without further ado, let’s talk about the best faith attribute weapons in Elden Ring.

Blasphemous Blade

The Blasphemous Blade is probably the most famous faith weapon due to its versatility and damage stats.

Its scaling stats might not look interesting on paper, but once you start swinging this effective weapon and see the results, you can agree why.

One of the best features of the Blasphemous Blade is its ability to restore 40 HP as well as  4% of your max HP for every enemy type slain.

Combine it with Taker’s Flames, you can just keep spamming your attacks left and right and never worry about your health dipping.

Pro-Tip: you can experiment with a hybrid strength type build for massive damage

Cipher Pata

The Cipher Pata is arguably one of the best faith-scaling weapons in Elden Ring due to its amazing holy damage and devastating skill – the unblockable blade.

This fist-type weapon can be upgraded with Somber Smithing Stones.

If you prefer speed and flexibility in your gameplay, the Cipher Pata will definitely not disappoint.

However, when it comes to late-game boss fights, we highly recommend using a different weapon as it’s really difficult to defeat them (yes, we tried countless times).

Coded Sword

Another weapon known for massive holy damage is the Coded Sword. If you heavily rely on faith scaling, this is among our favorites.

It doesn’t require an insane amount of faith attribute like the Cipher Pata, and it’s also fairly easy to obtain.

The Unblockable Blade skill has a devastating damage type, especially when this weapon comes with the Sacred Scorpion Charm.

It’s also important to note that the running attack speed and first attack speed have been increased since the recent patch.

Envoy’s Long Horn

The Envoy’s Long Horn is one of the most devastating great hammers you can use in the game.

Don’t be fooled by the calm and gentle bubbles coming out of the Bubble Shower, as they can deal tons of damage to enemies once it rains down on them.

The higher your faith points are, the more devastating damage it can bring.

Furthermore, If you’re looking to make this weapon even stronger, then you can upgrade the weapon with Somber Smithing Stones.

When it comes to guard-countering weapons, Maliketh’s Black Blade is one of the best weapons to wield.

This powerful sword has a really insane damage output and is one of the fastest weapons to use when you prefer parries and counterattacks.

Despite the D rank in faith-scaling weapon types, we still believe it’s a versatile sword that can redirect the tides of battle with every slash.

Combined with Destined Skill, it’s no surprise that a lot of gamers highly enjoy this weapon.

How to get itEnia – Roundtable Hold – can be acquired by trading the Remembrance of the Black Blade (defeat Maliketh)
