Dueling in Elden Ring is a fight to the death between two people. This is a great choice for players who are taking part in the game.
Elden Ring is known for its tough but fair gameplay that focuses on sticking with it and looking around. PvP is another part of the game. One of the most well-known types of PvP is fighting, which is a one-on-one fight where players fight to the death and can’t use Crimson Tear Flasks.
In Elden Ring, players have a lot of choices when it comes to the best weapons for fighting. If players aren’t sure what to use, they can rest easy knowing that the examples below can’t go wrong.
The Death’s Poker is one of the few weapons in the game that builds up frost. It is also one of the best Int weapons in Elden Ring. It gets better with Dex, but gets worse with Str and Int. This makes it a good Int-Dex tool. As a greatsword, it can also deal a lot of damage and quickly stun enemies.
But the great special skill Ghostflame Ignition is what makes this a good Int weapon. With this skill, a ball of ghost flame appears in front of the person. When you follow up with a light attack, you make a line of flames, and when you follow up with a heavy attack, you make a medium-sized explosion that hurts all nearby enemies. The Death Rite Bird near the Southern Aeonia Swamp Bank Site of Grace drops the Death’s Poker.
One of the best Curved Greatswords in the game is the Bloodhound’s Fang. It has the third-longest reach among weapons in its class, and it naturally builds up bleed, which makes it very useful in PvP. Players can also improve this weapon with magic and consumables like fire or blood grease, which makes it do even more damage.
But what makes this weapon stand out is its skill, Bloodhound’s Finesse, which lets players do a fade-away strike and then a dash-follow-up strike. Players can get the bent greatsword by beating Bloodhound Knight Darriwil at the Forlorn Hound Evergaol in the southernmost part of Limgrave. This makes it easy for those who are strong enough to beat him early on to get to it.
The Reduvia dagger is one of the most powerful knives in Elden Ring, and it is a monster in PvP. It bleeds naturally and attacks quickly, which makes it easy to build up bleed. Also, its amazing weapon skill, Reduvia Blood Blade, lets players do damage from far away. It fires a short-range blood projectile that causes more bleeding to build up. But what players will want to do is power stance two of them. This will increase their attack speed by a lot, allowing them to cause blood loss on their opponents much more quickly and eat them like butter.
The Reduvia knife is dropped by Bloody Finger Nerijus, a non-player character who attacks the player along the stream outside of Murkwater Cave. This means that the dagger is easy to get early in the game and is a great choice for players who want to start a “bleed build.”
The Bloody Helice is the longest weapon of its type and one of the best stabbing weapons in the game. It mostly scales with Dexterity and Arcane, and it has bleed buildup built into it, which makes it great for bleed builds. As a Heavy Thrusting Sword, it can also be used like a spear with a shield.
But this weapon’s special skill, Dynast’s Finesse, makes it a monster in PvP. The weapon skill makes the player move backward, which lets them do a lunging thrust back at the enemy that does a lot of damage and can easily kill anyone it hits in one hit. Also, if the opponent escapes the lunging thrust, players can chain a two-hit heavy attack true combo. In the Writheblood Ruins, there is a box where the Bloody Helice can be found.
Morgott’s Cursed Sword
Morgott’s Cursed Sword is a weapon that players find later in Doodle Baseball. It is the lightest of its type, so players can wear heavy armor with it. It mainly scales with Arcane and Dex, and it naturally builds up blood, which makes it great for bleed builds. Also, among the Curved Greatswords, it has the longest reach.
But its Cursed-Blood Slice weapon skill makes it stand out. This skill lets players do two quick slashes that coat the weapon in fire and leave a trail in the air that explodes after a short delay, causing fire damage. Also, its quick moves, long reach, and flying weapon skill can catch opponents off guard, making it hard to deal with in duels. With the Remembrance of the Omen King, a player can get this weapon from Finger Reader Enia.
The Blasphemous Blade is the Faith scaling greatsword that does the most damage. With the right stats, it can do a lot of damage. The greatsword does more damage from fire and largely scales with Strength, Dexterity, and Faith. But the skill Taker’s Flame, which comes with this weapon, is what makes it so strong. The skill slams the sword into the ground, making an explosion of fire in the middle distance that does a lot of fire damage.
Also, every time the player hits their opponent, they get a small amount of health back. It’s great because healing while causing damage is always a good way to keep an enemy at bay in a fight. After you beat Rykard, Lord of Blasphemy, you can buy the Blasphemous Blade from Finger Reader Enia.
The Pike, which is the largest weapon, is one of the best weapons, if not the best, that players can use in duels. It does decent damage, scales about averagely, and has a good range. This gives players a sweet reach edge over most weapons, which opponents can use to their advantage. It can also be infused with Ashes of War, which, along with its edge in reach, makes it a very versatile weapon for duels.
The Pike can also be used with a shield and attacked without lowering it. This lets players poke their opponents from afar. This makes it the best tool for builds with a lot of health. This spear can be found in the highly guarded courtyard of Stormveil Castle.
In Elden Ring, the Zweihander is the second-longest Colossal Sword. It works the same with both Str and Dex, which makes it a very good tool. The Sword is also the lightest weapon in its class, so players can use it with one hand and still use another weapon with the other. But this tool is good for duels because it can be used in a lot of different ways at once.
The kneeling and rolling heavy attack can be linked to an off-hand attack that can’t be rolled away from. This makes sure that if the first attack hits, the player will get a two-hit combo if the first hit. Also, some Ashes of War, like the storm stomp, can make the move last longer and let players do another attack with their off-hand. The Isolated Merchant in the Weeping Peninsula is the place where players can buy this sword.
The Guardian’s Swordspear is one of the unique Halberds. It has the same move set as Loretta’s War Sickle, which is mostly cuts. It has the second-fastest light attack speed among weapons in its class. This lets it quickly make a surprising number of hits. It also works well with the keen infusion, which gives it an A scale in Dex. Spells and grease can also be used to boost it, making it do even more damage.
But the Guardian’s Swordspear’s real power comes from the way it works with other weapons. Its heavy jumping attack can be linked to a light attack, making a two-hit combo if the first attack hits. This great halberd can be found in the hands of Erdtree Guardians, who are usually found under Minor Erdtrees.
Katanas are cool, and the only thing cooler than a katana is a long blade. Nagakiba is one of the longest weapons in the game. It scales mostly with Strength and Dexterity, but more with Dexterity. Being a sword, it naturally builds up blood, which makes it good for duels.
The Nagakiba is great for fighting, though, because of its reach and the fact that they can put Ashes of War into it. This lets players use the weapon’s range to its fullest and catch most opponents who don’t realize how far it can reach. When players finish Bloody Finger Hunter Yura’s questline, they can get the katana.
