When it comes to becoming the very best samurai in Elden Ring, it is all about the katanas in the game. Samurai builds are completely dependent on katanas due to how much they need to focus their stats in dexterity. So for the best samurai sword, you should consider the Rivers of Blood Katana. This weapon will cause Blood Loss status very easily and wipe out enemies in a few slashes.

The Moonveil katana is also very popular. The reason for that is the skill that it has absolutely decimates opponents. There was a time period when the Moonveil katana was the very best PvP weapon. The only problem is that to use it, you will need to invest 23 points into intelligence but it is well worth the investment.

The Ronin Armor Set is a great choice for a samurai build. Not only does it make you look like a proper samurai in the world of Elden Ring, but the protection it offers is nothing to be sneezed at, and it does not slow you down either. For talismans, consider using the Godskin Swaddling Cloth. As a samurai, you will be attacking fast, which means you will recover even more HP with this talisman.

The Shard of Alexander is fantastic because your skills will drastically become stronger and that is often the strength of samurai builds. The Rotten Winged Sword Insignia is also perfect because your attacks will become stronger with each swing. Since you are swinging your katana multiple times, causing blood loss, you will need the Lord of Blood's Exultation talisman, which raises your power when you proc Blood Loss against opponents. So long as you are focusing on talismans that become better with successful attacks or blood loss, you cannot go wrong.
