She’s especially disheartening because every fuckup is more work to do but build into your primary weapon and it’s far from impossible the old fashioned way. cept you can block, like ever, so build accordingly

              It's the ritualistic ribbing you're going to get when learning the fight, Anon.

                That's literally never how Souls bosses have ever worked outside of literal puzzle bosses, Anon. Unless you are choosing to play hyper defensively, all Souls bosses have let you be aggressive as fuck so long as you dodged their attacks. Malenia forces you to play semi-passive, and there is only ONE correct method for dodge rolling her attacks. The fight is pretty queer and actively requires you to fail in order to know there is a "fail state" attack you need to worry about. No other Souls boss is this insta-gib.

              How do you roll a good faith build in Elden Ring?

              Never played it or any FS game,but want to get all 3 ends with different playstyles, was going to do wizard for the moon god,samurai for the Frenzied flame,and want to do a faith paladin build to become the Elden Lord.

              What makes a good build like that? Do you have overpowered moves and weapons like comet Azur and RoB? What would the equivalent of those be for a faith paladin?

                Realistically you're going to end up with a strength/faith hybrid with most of your casting being buffs. If you want big dick attack invocations you're pretty much limited to certain pyromancies, but luckily fire is a pretty good element. You can get a spell that's basically a tracking version of forbidden sun from the evergaol in southwest liurnia. Offensive holy invocations almost universally suck ass for PVE. Lightning bolts are good for poking at range.

                Yes, "Placidusax's ruin" I believe, although obviously that requires, you know, reaching and defeating Placidusax, so more of a PVP toy, but pretty fucking good, even among dragon incantations (though for whatever reason it doesn't benefit from the dragon seal bonus)
                >Also, I heard you could get the attack Elden Beast uses for yourself, the mass of falling stars?
                Yes, elden stars. Interestingly enough you can access it deeproot depths, so you only have to beat Radahn to get it, but it's not very good.

                Dang, looks like it's going to be an uphill battle as a Faith character, at least a wizard could use moonveil until the comet Azure, can a faith build use the moonveil Katana?

                Faith weapons tend to trend more strength than dex. Faith also gets some very good utility spells, like "flame cleanse me" that lets you get rid of scarlet rot for almost no FP.

                Unfortunately for faith players, holy damage is only really worth a damn in the midgame. 75% of the bosses in early and endgame are massively strong against it. The good news is that if you can do holy damage you can almost certainly do fire or lightning as well, so bring the right tool for the right job, infuse your primary weapon accordingly. Also worth mentioning that plenty of spells like the bestials or aspects of the crucible do physical or elemental damage instead/ on top of holy.

                I finished with a FTH caster when the game first came out, honestly your damage potential is less but you'll have a lot of utility. Healing. HoT, damage and protection buffs, etc... For a more paladin style there are a lot of good thematically appropriate weapons and from what I've been told the most holy looking spells got buffed to actually do decent damage now. I'll defer to other anons who actually used their weapons for advice there. Faith I don't think has the overpowered moves as azur or RoB but you have a lot of good options, hell as a FTH caster despite having to use up half my slots in buffs I still had an offensive option for every situation.

                Did they ever change lightning spear so that it triggers the anti-range reactions from bosses(ie malenia dodging)? If not it still should be a good spell despite the buffs to other faith stuff

                Pure INT but don't bother with moonveil imo, you'll waste a lot of stats and really slow down your casting fun. Just use a basic small weapon to finish off enemies until you have enough FP to juste shoot everything down.

                For pure int don't even bother with a weapon past early game, Carian Slicer has got your back for fast moving stuff. Personally I find Carian Knight builds are lot more fun where you mix in melee. Carian Knight Sword is very unique and fun, but slapping glintstone pebble or the Carian ashes of war on any old weapon works. Also Carian retaliation makes the game fun.

          if it's radagon's then you probably don't need it? coded sword is pure FAI and thus requires no investment into STR or DEX, any points you get in vigor is highly outweighted by the hit to defense anyways and there's better talismans to increase equip load.
          If marika's then ask yourself if you really need those points when you're over level 150 with more than enough FP and FAI. the extra points are practically a drop in the bucket with high penalties in return
          >Frenzied flame seal
          meme seal that's only good for twink builds and fence sitters. you'd be better of with the erdtree seal or starter one since you'd require investing into DEX, STR and INT for good scaling
          also IIRC seals that scale off other stats than FAI don't contribute to healing spell effect, scale worse with FAI and are generally poor for builds that use healing(unless it's percentage based or healing over time)

    I think it’s incredible that after an entire decade of making these games, FROM still hasn’t made a single boss with proper hitboxes on his grabs

      the hitboxes are fine on godfrey, what fucks people is roll is triggered on release, not on button press becase sprint is the same button, its a terrible design

    why not get cheat engine at that point if you're trivializing the game that you don't even have to play it, or uninstall the game. How is the game even fun knowing you can one tap any boss without engaging them

    Ice spear weapon skill literally cheeses every single boss in the game

      Run backwards and stay clear of the first two whirls, then dodge forward as she lunges across you on the third whirl so she ends up jumping overhead and missing you. There, problem solved.

      You can do it with the Carian Shield with the talisman. You can block the first section, and then it's pretty easy to roll the rest.

      Can't say I have the experience with INT stuff but I feel like it's the same principle as a FTH caster. Slinging spells should keep you at enough of a distance to dodge the first two swings(considering I was using beast claw's low range fairly certain most INT spells would give you more room to breathe), then you just dodge towards on the third and dodge out for the 4th. The timing is not as strict as you'd think I believe in you.

    Man, arcane builds are so cool. Getting powerful poison, bleed, and sleep and figuring out when to use which is cool. The weapons with natural bleed that make for good occult weapons offers a neat array of stuff to use. You got scavenger's curved sword, you got grave scythe, you got uchigatana, you got flamberge. Rot/Blood talismans that boost your damage when you proc them are cool. You get hybrid casting shit with both incantations and sorceries thanks to dragon communion seal + albinauric's staff. It's just such a cool build, it offers so many awesome options. And yeah I know people will rag on le dual bleed seppuku (and rightfully so) but arcane builds offer so much more than that.

        Hm, I just tried em all and I feel like all of them are too thin compared to the body. I fucking wish the Tree Sentinel set are silver, the greaves would've been perfect for the armor.

      I like the duck feet...
      Scaled greaves go well with it, though I personally find them a bit skinny for heavier chest pieces. Might try prelate. Prelate has two looks, one where it's absurdly bulky and looks awful, and another where it has a smaller, more reasonable level of bulk. The less bulky version gets matched with armor that has leg coverings usually, so I think the unaltered BK should do it.

      I like the look of blaidd's

      And as this anon says, Blaidd's. Blaidd's greaves go well with all sorts of armor.

        It is, just looks wrong. Blaidd's greaves also looks too skinny for.

        Just tried it, I got the second look alright but the color matching is kinda bad ngl. I might've to go with the goat legs at this point, I can stand the jojo shoes more compared to the duck feet.

          I think I found my baby, Blackflame Monk greaves. The color matching is almost spot on and it doesn't look too skinny for me.
