Here, we are going to go over what are the best arcane weapons in Elden Ring.
Best Arcane Weapons in Elden Ring, Ranked

Elden Ring is one of the most diverse games that came out in 2022. The reason that we say this is due to the fact that there are many different ways that you can play this game. For example, players can focus on using sorceries instead of swinging a sword around. This is a very viable way to experience Elden Ring.

Sorceries scales with intelligence, but there is another often underexplored path for players to take. Players can focus on arcane weapons. Arcane increases your holy defense and on top of that, there are a large number of weapons that scales very well with the arcane stat. Here, we are going to go over the best arcane weapons in Elden Ring.

5. Bloody Helice

The Bloody Helice is an interesting arcane weapon. For one, you can actually infuse other Ashes of War on this particular weapon, making it very versatile. With that being said, players will want to complement this weapon with Ashes of War, which causes bleeding and thrusting attacks, because this weapon can do both very well.

4. Morgott's Cursed Sword

If you have a lot of dexterity, this is the arcane weapon for you. Morgott's Cursed Sword has a high dexterity requirement, but those who meet that bar will be met with a sword that will deal massive damage. This sword scales very well with dexterity and arcane, and on top of that, its skill will close the gap against your opponents.

3. Mohgwyn's Sacred Spear

If you want to focus most of your points on the arcane stat, then this is the weapon for you. Mohgwyn's Sacred Spear is an excellent weapon to clear out crowds. That is because this weapon's skill, Bloodboon Ritual, has a very large area of effect that can cause blood loss to enemies all around you. If you are having trouble dealing with crowds of enemies, this is the perfect arcane weapon for you.

2. Marias Executioner's Sword

If your focus has been building up your strength and arcane stats, then you do not want to miss out on Maria's Executioner's Sword. This is a heavy greatsword that can do an insane amount of damage, especially if you invest a bit more in strength than arcane. The skill of this weapon will also take opponents by surprise as well.

1. Rivers Of Blood

Arcane and blood loss almost goes hand in hand, and no other weapon does it better than the Rivers of Blood Katana. The Rivers of Blood weapon is not only extremely fast, but it is also powerful as well. With the skill in hand, you will be mowing down enemies left and right before they have a chance to counterattack.
