Elden Ring: Sorcery and Sword Build for Patch 1.10! - The Nightblade

Posted: Aug 24, 2023

Here, I want to give you another Elden Ring build for Patch 1.10, which is called the Nightblade.

Stat Spread - Starting Class & Point Allocation 

Let’s start with the class and stats.

You can start this build with the Astrologer class. You can set your Vigor at 55, Mind at 20 (and can be boosted by your Navy Hood from 20 to 21), Endurance at 12, Strength at 8, Dexterity at 50, Intelligence at 68, Faith at 7, and Arcane at 9.

The Gear - Weapons, Armor, Talismans, Ashes of War, Flask of Wondrous Physick 

Let’s have a look at my gear first. And next, I will go over where you can find each piece of gear, Ashes of War, and Sacred Tear.

I have a Rapier with a Cold affinity - Cold Rapier, as our melee weapon. And what I love about this is not only the critical rating of 130 but also the fact that adding Frostbite lowers enemies’ defenses by 20%. 

The Ash of War Glintblade Phalanx is going to be used to break the enemy’s stance, leaving them open to boost Critical Hits. 

You can cast the Night Sorceries with the Staff of Loss, the best staff for them. And what’s great is that they are invisible, so bosses don’t dodge them. We can really keep our distance in battle. 

Fully charged Night Comets do respectable damage. Night Shard is great for mobility as you can cast it whilst running and jumping. And although Ambush Shard is not being boosted by the Staff of Loss, it is also great for enemies that are out of range and for keeping up the chip damage, so their stance doesn’t reset. I mean, sometimes you kill Melania with it.

Of course, you can start most fights by firing off Ranni’s Dark Moon to get Frostbite proct to lower enemies defenses by 20% before you unleash your Night Sorceries and Critical Hits.

These are the Talismans that support and boost the build:

The Graven-Mass Talisman, which raises your sorcery damage by 8%. 

The Godfrey Icon, which boosts the damage of your fully charged Night Comets by 15%.

The Magic Scorpion Charm, which boosts your magic damage by 12% and increases any physical damage you take by 10%. It is a worthy trade-off.

The Dagger Talisman, which increases our Critical Hits by 17%.

Now, if you don’t want to lock yourself into charged Night Comets and the Godfrey Icon, you can switch in the Graven-School Talisman and along with the Graven-Mass Talisman. You’ll have a +12% overall damage boost to your Ssorceries.

In the Flask of Wondrous Physick, you can pick the Magic-Shrouding Cracked Tear, boosting all your magic damage and you can pick the Greenburst Crystal Tear, speeding up your stamina recovery as the bar is a little low.

Now your armor loadout is held and bling to the max. You can pick a Navy Hood, boosting your Mind stat by one point. This actually allows you to cast 6 Night Comets with a full FP bar before chugging.

The rest of the gear is the Black Knife Armor set. Not only does this look awesome, but it makes no noise, which means we can sneak about and ambush enemies.

Let’s have a look at some combat.

Start by chugging your Flask of Wondrous Physick and then pop off Ranni’s Dark Moon. Then, I like to throw up Glintblade Phalanx and switch to Night Comet to snipe away.

Depending on what you are fighting, you may just want to stay away and snipe enemies with Night Sorceries. But if you do want to get in close, keep Glintblade Phalanx up and hitting enemies to get their stance broken and your awesome Critical Hits in.

There’s something for everyone with this build. I just love switching it up depending on the boss.
