Elden Ring Best Holy Weapons, Ranked (2023)

Elden Ring Best Holy Weapons, Ranked

Using magic is an ordinary affair in most of FromSoftware’s latest games, such as Dark Souls and Elden Ring.

It’s pretty helpful in warding off enemies in PvE combat or chipping away HP in PvP combat, even though a lot of people mistakenly think of these games as sword and shield combat. However, fusing magic and weaponry gives you the best of both worlds, which is why the Faith trait and the associated weaponry are essential. 

When you’re fighting off the undead, you will have difficulty fighting them with ordinary weapons. You’ll need weapons that deal Holy damage, which these creatures are weak to.

If you’re wondering which ones you should start out with, we have made a list of the top ten best Holy weapons you must try out in Elden Ring!

This weapon is last on our list because it’s the blandest looking, but it still qualifies because of its reliability. Behind its boring design, the Inseparable Sword deals a whopping 98 Holy damage.

The main selling point of this weapon is that it has the Hollowslayer Greatsword moveset in that many Souls fans love. If you want to know where it is, it can be found at the Prince of Death’s Throne after giving a twinned armor to D’s brother.

9. Cipher Pata

Cipher Pata

Elden Ring will occasionally provide you with weapons early on, but they won’t be ready for use for a while. You can get the Cipher Pata as soon as you get to the Roundtable Hold.

It is on a bed in a chamber to the left of the center ledge, where you may discover it by jumping off.

This weapon also deals 98 Holy damage and requires 30 Faith, so you’ll need to work hard on your Faith build to actually wield this weapon. If you want to look extra cool, you can dual-wield two of the Cipher Patas.

8. Winged Scythe

Winged Scythe

The Winged Scythe is one of the most underrated scythes in the game. Although it’s slower than the others, the Winged Scythe offers a lot of boosts for Faith builds.

It takes numerous targets into account because of the wide range it covers while also dealing 104 holy damage. Due to its inherent Bleed damage, the scythe is also excellent against enemies that are lightly armored. 

7. Envoy’s Longhorn

Envoy’s Longhorn

You may have noticed this weapon being used by the snowmen in the Royal Capital.

But did you know that you could get it as well? Envoy’s Long Horn is a unique addition to Elden Ring’s Faith weaponry as it’s an instrument that holds a special skill.

This three-horned Hammer has a couple of moves with a considerable range, making it a useful weapon. The horn on this weapon is actually good for attacking enemies with strike damage, which works against all enemy types.

6. Erdtree Bow

Erdtree Bow Elden Ring

Holy archers do exist the Erdtree Bow is a testament to that. There’s no need for special arrows as the bow itself deals a lot more holy damage than physical.

When used and buffed properly, you can start your own bow build, which hasn’t been done a lot in Elden Ring. Players can deal with enemies that are shielded and even do huge damage to specific bosses with The Mighty Shot Ashes of War.

Even if it can’t be replaced, the weapon skill is still a useful addition to any player’s inventory because it isn’t very restrictive.

5. Sacred Relic Sword

Sacred Relic Sword

You won’t get this weapon until you’re at the end of Elden Ring as it requires the soul of the final boss. However, the payoff is worth it.

The Sacred Relic Sword is a weapon that possesses the Wave of Gold, an amazing skill that emits a golden light that hurts enemies. The waves can simultaneously attack enemies due to their wide coverage. This makes it an excellent skill for rune farming.

4. Maliketh’s Black Blade

Maliketh’s Black Blade

Players with Faith builds often opt for the Black Knife because of its huge health damage, but if you’re looking for something that’s similar but bigger, Maliketh’s Black Blade is perfect for you!

This weapon does a lot more area damage and utilizes a cool skill called Destined Death, which releases an explosion of red blades and lets enemies caught within it suffer 10% damage over time. 

3. Coded Sword

Elden Ring coded sword

The Coded Sword is a full-fledged Faith weapon as it deals 85 Holy damage and nothing else. The selling point of this weapon is its capacity to pierce virtually anything, including shields.

It also uses a special Ash of War called Holy Blade that is both practical and fun to use. It starts out with a weapon scaling for Faith at a B-grade, but with upgrades, you can level it up to S-Grade.

The Coded Sword is challenging to use in most situations but could be more effective if combined with a weapon that deals physical damage. If you want to get this stunning weapon, you can find it at Lower Capital Church in Liurnia.

2. Marika’s Hammer

Marika’s Hammer Elden Ring

This stone hammer was actually used to shatter the Elden Ring, which makes this weapon quite interesting to have. Some players have complained about it being slow, but it seems to have improved in the game now.

Marika’s Hammer is a light weapon that works well against enemy armor and shields. It possesses a skill called the Gold Breaker that emulates Radagon’s moves, causing severe AoE Holy damage.

1. The Golden Order Greatsword

The Golden Order Greatsword Elden Ring Best Holy Weapons

This is one of the best-looking swords in the game and has some interesting lore in it.

The Golden Order Greatsword can be found in a cave in the Consecrated Snowfield, its name was derived from a set of beliefs created by Queen Marika and the Elden Lord. The design was made to look like the Elden Ring, which is what makes the weapon worth having. 


That’s the best Holy weapon in Elden Ring we know so far! Although we’ve only mentioned ten in this list, it’s important to know that there are lots of other Faith-scaling weapons that are worth trying out.

These are just the great ones that many players, including us, have tried and tested in our journey toward creating the most overpowered Faith build.
