Best Strength Weapons in Elden Ring

While the world of the Lands Between is epic and vast, so too are the number of different builds you can create. Yes, FromSoftware’s latest open-world action RPG offers unparalleled freedom to create a specific build for your very own personal playstyle.

The foundation of every build often centers around the weapons you carry. If you’re looking for a strong weapon to act as a lynchpin for your Strength build, we’ve got you covered. Here is a selection of the best Strength weapons you can find in Elden Ring.

Best Strength Weapons in Elden Ring

Lordsworn’s Greatsword

Best Strength Weapons in Elden Ring, Lordsworn's Greatsword
  • Requirements: Strength 16, Dexterity 10
  • Weapon Skill: Stamp (Upward Cut)
  • Strength Scaling at Max Level: C
  • Can it be infused with Ashes of War? Yes
  • Location: Obtained from a carriage chest near the Gatefront Ruins in Limgrave.

After a strong early game weapon? The Lordsworn’s Greatsword fits the bill nicely. Blending ample speed with decent damage output, this is a balanced early game weapon that’s especially effective for critical strikes.

Great Club

Best Strength Weapons, Giant Club
  • Requirements: Strength 35
  • Weapon Skill: Golden Land
  • Strength Scaling at Max Level: B
  • Can it be infused with Ashes of War? No
  • Location: Obtained after defeating the Stonedigger Troll boss in Old Altus Tunnel.

If you fancy lugging around a club the size of the Eiffel Tower in your back pocket (I mean, who doesn’t?), then the Great Club is for you. Boasting massive physical damage output, this is a beast of a weapon that is only held back by its slow moveset.

Prelate’s Inferno Crozier

  • Requirements: Strength 45, Dexterity 8
  • Weapon Skill: Prelate’s Charge
  • Strength Scaling at Max Level: B
  • Can it be infused with Ashes of War? Yes
  • Location: Obtain from an enemy in Fort Laiedd, west of Seethewater Terminus Site of Grace.

Like other Colossal weapons, the Prelate’s Inferno Crozier is excellent at staggering foes and sending them flying in the air. It also looks badass, too, with its eye-catching vermillion red finish, which is obviously always a bonus.

Greatsword

Best Strength Weapons in Elden Ring, Greatsword
  • Requirements: Strength 31, Dexterity 12
  • Weapon Skill: Stamp (Upward Cut)
  • Strength Scaling at Max Level: B
  • Can it be infused with Ashes of War? Yes
  • Location: Obtained in a caravan chest in Caelid, Dragonbarrow. North-west of Caelem Ruins Site of Grace.

Don’t be fooled by its generic name, as the Greatsword is anything but generic. With its wide swings and effectiveness at staggering its opponents, this is a solid pick if you fancy cleaving your way through a bunch of enemies at once.

Grafted Blade Greatsword

Best Strength Weapons in Elden Ring, Grafted Blade Greatsword
  • Requirements: Strength 40, Dexterity 14
  • Weapon Skill: Oath of Vengeance
  • Strength Scaling at Max Level: B
  • Can it be infused with Ashes of War? No
  • Location: Obtained after defeating Leonine Misbegotten boss in Castle Morne at the Weeping Peninsula.

With its stat-buffing Weapon Skill and its impressive damage output, the Grafted Blade Greatsword is a mighty choice for Strength-based builds. Plus, does anyone else think it looks like the Iron Throne from Game of Thrones? No, just me, then.

Ruins Greatsword

Best Strength Weapons in Elden Ring, Ruins Greatsword
  • Requirements: Strength 50, Intelligence 16
  • Weapon Skill: Wave of Destruction
  • Strength Scaling at Max Level: S
  • Can it be infused with Ashes of War? No
  • Location: Obtained after defeating the Misbegotten Warrior and Crucible Knight boss fight in Redmane Castle.

One of the only weapons in the game that boasts an S rank for Strength scaling, the Ruins Greatsword is pretty OP and offers one of the most devastating Weapon Skills in the game with its screen-wiping Wave of Destruction ability.

Giant-Crusher

Best Strength Weapons in Elden Ring, Giant-Crusher
  • Requirements: Strength 60
  • Weapon Skill: Strike
  • Strength Scaling at Max Level: B
  • Can it be infused with Ashes of War? Yes
  • Location: Obtained from a chest south of Outer Wall Phantom Tree Site of Grace.

Not only does the Giant-Crusher hammer offer incredible physical damage output, but it also staggers enemies effectively and looks seriously awesome to boot. The only downside is that it requires a ton of Strength to wield. It’s worth it, though. Trust me.
