A Step-By-Step Guide To Craft This Arcane Blood Storm Build In Elden Ring

Build Overview

You’re going to be stacking as many attack power boosts as you can with successive attacks, bleed in the vicinity, as well as critical strikes, and overall boosting the power of Stormcaller to become a Blade of Death, blending up your enemies while building up Blood Loss incredibly fast.

You can also add the Spiralhorn Shield because it has Blood Loss on it. So anytime somebody hits you, that’s going to help build up the Blood Loss. If you want to use this off-hand, using a shield will also allow you to break their stance while parrying and negate those critical hits.

Weapons

As for the weapon, we’re using the Vulgar Militia Saw. This is very easily farmed by some of the Vulgar Militia on the map in Caelid. You can get there very early by taking the portal behind the Third Church of Marika. You'll also get a ton of Elden Ring Runes from this early game, so this will probably be your first weapon, and you'll be able to carry it with you pretty much until the end of the game.

This combination stacks incredibly fast when utilizing the Ash of War: Stormcaller. This synergy is essential because it significantly enhances the weapon's effectiveness, decimating enemies with a powerful blend of physical damage. With a base damage value of 258 plus 291, a B Agility rating, and a significantly improved Arcane rating of D, it produces impressive results. Its scaling properties are pretty good, and with minimal stat investment, requiring only Strength 15 and Agility 30, it can be used even early in the game.

The Spiralhorn Shield adds an enjoyable dimension to your gameplay. With 45 Blood Loss, each time you're struck, your opponent will suffer from bleed build up. You can use it for parrying with the Ash of War, a technique and adds depth to the gameplay. If you appreciate parrying and desire additional Blood Loss build up, it's a worthwhile addition.

However, it's not optimal for straightforward physical damage blocking, as it only offers 61 physical damage negation. Among available shields, it's notably adept for parrying. Requiring Strength 8 and Dexterity 10, you can find this weapon in Liurnia of the Lakes.

To complete this weapon setup, we'll utilize the Ash of War: Stormcaller, obtainable in Stormveil Castle, located opposite the Secluded Cell Site of Grace, near a Teardrop Scarab.

Armor

When it comes to our armor, the only thing you necessarily need is the White Mask. I wish that the effect that it had was on a different helmet, but sadly it’s not. The White Mask is going to provide you with a 10% damage boost anytime Blood Loss is in the vicinity, and we are going to be constantly getting Blood Loss, so this makes the most sense if you want to do the most damage.

Talismans

Moving on to our talismans, our talismans are going to be really outstanding and fun to use, allowing us to spike our damage incredibly high as we’re making our way through the Lands Between.

First, we’re using the Lord of Blood’s Exaltation, which is going to give you a 20% damage increase anytime Blood Loss is in the vicinity. This is also going to stack with the White Mask and one tear in our flask, allowing us to spike that attack power like crazy.

Next up, we have the Rotten Winged Sword Insignia. If you don’t have this, you can use the Millicent's Prosthesis, but the Rotten Wing Sword Insignia is going to increase the attack power of your skills greatly, giving you a 133% increase in your attack power, which is going to stack with the rest of our attack power items.

In slot number 3, we’re going to be putting the Dagger Talisman, which is going to increase those critical hits by 177%. This is going to be really nice, especially when we have our Spiralhorn Shield equipped, getting off those parries and getting those massive critical chunks of damage off.

If you don’t want to use the shield or focus on parries and critical attacks, then you can put Millicent’s Prosthesis if you’re in NG+, allowing you to have a crazy amount of attack power once your successive attacks and your Blood Loss get going.

Lastly, you can use the Shard of Alexander, which is going to increase the attack power of our skills greatly. This is going to give us a 15% increase to our Ash of War: Stormcaller, and that damage is only going to soar higher because each one of those rotations goes towards the success of attack talismans and eventually will cause Blood Loss, allowing everything to work well.

The Lord of Blood’s Exultation is going to be a dungeon boss kill reward in the Leyndell Catacombs within the capital. The Rotten Wing Sword Insignia is going to be one item you can get at the end of Millicent Questline.

Flask

For a Flask of Wondrous Physick, we are using the Thorny Cracked Tear and the Greenburst Crystal Tear.

Elden Ring Flask of Wondrous Physick

The Thorny Cracked Tear is only to support our Ash of War: Stormcaller and all of our other successive attack and attack power boosting talismans. The Thorny Cracked Tear is going to boost your success of attack power by 20%, giving you a massive amount of damage on top of all the other attack powers that we’ve already been stacking with this build.

For the Greenburst Crystal Tear, this is going to boost your recovery speed by 15 per second for 3 minutes, so you’re definitely going to be recovering stamina a lot faster. Stormcaller does eat away your stamina very quickly. The Thorny Cracked Tear isn’t going to be found until the very end of the game in the Consecrated Snowfield after you kill the Erdtree Avatar right next to the Erdtree in the north.

If you want to grab the Greenburst Crystal Tear, you need to head east from Limgrave and go right to the Minor Erdtree. As soon as you get right next to the Smoldering Church, defeat that Erdtree Avatar and the Greenburst Crystal Tear will be yours.
