Elden Ring has a unique combat system in which there are base stats that you need to understand. Because the base stats of your character are very important as it tells your character’s ability that it can take on a high-tier enemy or not. Just like your character’s stats, there are also the base stats of your character. In this guide, we tell you what is poise and how to increase it.
Poise is the base stats of your character which is defined by the armor you are wearing. Each armor has different poise points which are also called the Poise HP, which shows the resistance of your character against the staggering from the enemy attacks.
So basically, what poise does is that if you are wearing armor that has more poise HP than your enemy poise HP then the enemy cannot stagger you during fights. It resists you from being staggered during fights. If your character has low Poise HP then you can get staggered during the fight and your resistance ability will also be less. It has a huge effect on fights as it makes fights easier or if you don’t have enough poise then you will have to struggle more in the fights.
How to Check Poise HP
If you are wondering how to check your character’s Poise HP then you can look at it in the same tab as you look at your character’s stats. Open the menu and go to the Status tab to look at your character’s Poise HP.
The poise will change if you change your armor, if you play aggressively but don’t want to get staggered by the enemies then it is necessary to wear good armor.
The staggering works on the poise points, if the damage taken by the enemies is increased by your poise points, then you get staggered by the enemies. The higher the poise, the higher the chances of not getting staggered by the enemies. It works the same on the enemies as well when you get to deal enough poise damage to them, they will get staggered and then you can deal critical damage to them.
If your poise gets low by taking damage by the enemies and if you want to refill your poise HP then you can do that by not taking any damage for 30 seconds. It will refill your poise.
There are three types of staggering in the game and it depends on what type of weapon you got hit by the enemy.
- Weak Stagger: You cannot move for half a second after getting hit. This stagger is caused by standard weapons.
- Heavy Stagger: You cannot move for a second after getting hit. This stagger is caused by Great weapons.
- Knock-down: You get knocked down completely off your feet after getting hit and cannot continue any actions until the recovery animation is completed. This stagger is caused by the Colossal weapons.
How to Increase Poise
The poise HP is of your armor and it can be increased by using different items in the game. You can use Bull-Goat’s Talisman which increases poise by 33%. The Baldachin’s Blessing is also a great consumable item that increases poise by 52%. The Stonebarb Cracked Tear also increases the poise by 25%.
If you want to deal the most poise damage to enemies then use the Colossal Sword as it deals the most poise damage. The best ash of war to break stances is the Flame of Redmane, it does 29 poise damage normally and if it is buffed with the Crystal Tear then it does 38 poise damage.

- X-Strike: These are the blades that you throw towards the enemies and it boomerangs back to you. It’s each hot with the blade will deal 85% physical damage.
- Veil of Chaos: In terms of mobility, you want to have this ability because it works best with the frenzy ability. When you dash into the enemies with the frenzy ability, you can dash out with the veil of chaos and leave an illusion of yours behind and after a couple of seconds, the illusion will explode, dealing more damage to the enemies. The explosion will deal 50% magic damage to enemies.
The magic abilities are also very important in the V Rising especially in the PvP because you want to make more plays with your teammates and you do want to use the magic in the fight to gain the benefits. The magic abilities that you want to have in this build are the following.
- Purgatory: It creates a pillar that slows enemies and heals the allies and yourself. It deals 75% of magic damage to enemies.

Now the Blood Type is also very important in the build because the blood type will improve certain abilities of your character. The Blood type you want to use for this build is Brute. The Brute Blood type will give you the following increments.
- 7.5% – 12.5% Primary Attack life leech.
- 7.5% – 15% Increased Primary attack speed and gain 1 gear level.

Even your primary attack will give you life leech meaning healing you while you are hitting the enemies. All the magic abilities heal your allies and yourself so, their healing stats will also increase with this blood type.

V Rising: How to get Greater Blood Essence in an easy way
V Rising game has the mechanics of recipes as well that your vampire can make in the Blood Press machine. This material is the stronger version of the regular Blood Essence that you get by feeding on different enemies or living things. In this guide, we tell you how to get the Greater Blood Essence in an easy way in the game.
Greater Blood Essence
Greater Blood Essence is a recipe that can be made in the Blood Press machine that you have to craft in your Castle base. After you’ve crafted the Blood Press you can make different recipes in it which’ll give you different benefits. The Greater Blood Essence works exactly the same as the regular Blood Essence but it has more efficiency.
You can use it to upgrade the Heart Castle, increase the fortified time of the castle, use it to turn humans into obedient servants, and use it to learn the sealed knowledge. In order to make 1 Greater Blood Essence, you’d need to have 150 Blood Essence and the Blood Press will combine the 150 Blood Essence into Greater Blood Essence.
How to Get Greater Blood Essence in Easy Way
The Greater Blood Essence is a high-level material and the first that you’d get this will be from the Tristan the Vampire Hunter Boss. You’d get this recipe by defeating him. That boss is 46 level and you have to be at least level 40 to defeat him. But there is also another easier way to make this recipe using items other than Blood Essence.
The way you can make this recipe is by getting the Unsullied Hearts. The unsullied Hearts are dropped by the mobs that have a little higher level than the regular mobs. You’d find these mobs in a different area of the map. You can recognize them by their level, if there is an enemy that has a higher level than the enemies around him that means he can drop you the unsullied heart.
Normally the bosses in Blood Altar can drop you the unsullied Hearts. Almost every boss will drop an unsullied heart and what you want to do is that you need to gather the unsullied hearts and bring them back to base to store them. Make sure that you do not consume it while you are low on health. Save these hearts for making the Greater Blood Essence when the recipe is unlocked.
The 4 unsullied Hearts would make 1 Greater Blood Essence and if you want to make it with the Blood Essence then it would cost 150 Blood Essence. That is the only reason to save the hearts so, you can make numbers of Greater Blood Essence material.
