By | August 10th, 2022 | Categories: Elden Ring

Like most action-adventure role-playing games, weapons are important in progressing through Elden Ring. Though many aspects would help players, like Elden Ring incantations and runes, armaments are the main damage-dealing equipment that the Tarnished has. Gamers need to make sure that their characters are using the strongest weapons available to ensure their success in their encounters. This Elden Ring Weapon Tier List will help players figure out the best combination of weapons to (finally) beat Malenia).

Elden Ring weapons are ranked according to their strength, power, and effectiveness in combat. Each item has its own perks, so gamers should research more about their preferred weapons or which one would fit them more. This Elden Ring tier list will help players whittle down their choices so that players can be more thorough with their search.
