Elden Ring: Best Samurai Build with Talisman

The samurai character’s main stat is Dexterity, the soul level is 9, the vigor of 12, and the strength of 12. So, basically how this works is you can wield some of the bigger weapons due to decent strength and dexterity.

You also have a quality endurance of 13. Now after selecting samurai as your character choose Golden Seed as your keepsake because you get an extra flask.

Now the weapons that you start with are an Uchigatana, Longbow, and a samurai armor which is pretty decent. The long Bow is good because you can use it as a long-range weapon and it is better than the bolt crossbow which doesn’t have much range. The Uchigatana that you start with is one of the best weapons early in the game for close-range fights as you also cause blood loss to enemies. The armor is decent you can change some of the things from it but you really don’t need to in the beginning.

Upgrading Attributes

So, to upgrade the stats of samurai you mainly want to focus on the dexterity to use the dexterity-based weapons later in the game which is best for this character, you can buff strength also along with dexterity. You also want to focus on the Vigor as well because it increases your health since samurai health is low so you should keep that in mind too. You can also increase the mind stat as well to increase the FP because the weapons will cost FP so early on you can buff it up to 15 then you can take it easy on it.

Weapons

Starting with the build we are going to use Nagakiba, the reason we are using it is that it has a bigger length in the blade than any other katanas and it gives you range advantage in combat. You want to level this weapon up to apply the Double Slash Ash of War to it. It’s very cheap in FP cost, it costs 6 for the initial attack then 3 for the follow-up attack, and the Double Slash is going to be the Rivers of Blood moveset. You also want to apply Keen affinity because that’ll give you 24+ A tier scaling for Dexterity. The attribute requirements are 18 strength and 22 Dexterity. This will also build up a blood loss at a rating of 45. The reason we used Keen affinity is that this build is based on dexterity.

The left-hand weapon you can use is Uchigatana and apply keen affinity on it as well to give A tier scaling for Dexterity. You can apply any Ash of War on this weapon.

Location of Nagakiba

You can get this sword by killing an NPC named Bloody Finger Hunter Yura which will give you a quest and it’s your choice you want to proceed to complete the quest or you can just kill him at any time and he will drop this sword. You can start his quest from Agheel Lake South Site of Grace.

Location of Nagakiba

Double Slash Ash of War

You can get this Ash of War from the Sellia Under-Stair Site of Grace in Caelid region. This Ash of War will be on a Root of the tree and it’s near to this site of grace.

Seals

In terms of seals, you can have any seal for the build, the easiest one to get is from the Twin Maiden Husks in the Roundtable area. Go to them and buy the finger seal.

Incantations

The incantations that you are going to use are three and they are as follows:

Golden Vow, is used in almost every build. It increases your attack and your defense.

Flame, Grant Me Strength, increases the fire damage as well as the physical attack power at the same time.

Bloodflame Blade enchants your right-hand armament with blood flame which is where you’re going to get bonus bleed damage and fire damage.

Incantations

Mask and Armor Set

You can use the Okina Mask for this Build because it boosts your dexterity by 3.

Mask and Armor Set

For the Armor set, you can use the White Reed Armor set because it has decent attributes and the nicest samurai-looking set.

Talismans

Talismans

You can use the Prosthesis-Wearer Heirloom because it increases the Dexterity.

You can use the Rotten Winged Sword Insignia as your second talisman which greatly increases the attack power with successive attacks

As a third talisman, you can use the Shard of Alexander as it boosts your attack power of skills.

As for the last talisman, you can use the Radagon’s Soreseal as it greatly increases all the attributes but also increases the damage taken from the enemies.

That would be all for your build mainly focused on dexterity stat which is best for the samurai character.

I enjoy playing games, and gaming is a passion of mine. Among my favorite games are Tears of the Kingdom, GTA, and Cyberpunk.
