Faith allows Tarnished to cast incantations and form offensive and defensive spells. Several weapons scale with Faith, but only a few can be considered strong and useful as the game’s difficulty rises. With that said, we have compiled a list of the best faith build weapons that can greatly help you in-game.

BEST Faith Build Weapons in Elden Ring

Some weapons can be stacked with both Faith and another attribute at the same time. This is why few Faith build weapons are considered gamechanger.

Godslayer’s Greatsword

Godslayer’s Greatsword is a Colossal Sword that scales with Dexterity and Faith, making it a good weapon for characters who inflict fire-based damage. Its unique skill, the Queen’s Black Flame, swings a black flame in a sweeping slash, followed by another mid-range swing, dealing respectable damage in PvE and massive damage in PvP.

It’s not as good as the actual spells that deal with black flames but Godslayer Greatsword still offers extra damage on your Ashes of War. Its moveset is faster than other swords of the same kind but it deals less damage overall.

You can obtain the Godslayer’s Greatsword at the Divine Tower of Caelid, inside a chest behind the Godskin Apostle’s boss arena.

Golden Epitaph + Coded Sword

The Golden Epitaph is one of the most famous and unique Straight Swords in the game. It scales primarily with Dex, Strength, and Faith, and is a great weapon for dealing Holy Damage. Its unique skill, Last Rites, acts as a buff and grants the Sacred Order effect to yourself and nearby allies. Since it buffs the player and not the weapon, the Epitaph can be switched with other offensive swords after casting Last Rites. Pairing this weapon with the Coded Sword will give you a huge boost in damage.

The Golden Epitaph can be looted off a corpse in Auriza Hero’s Grave. Use a Stonesword Key on the Imp Statue in the area to remove the barrier blocking the entrance to the room where the body is located. Be careful of Basilisks in the area.

Beastclaw Greathammer

Third on the list is the Beastclaw Great Hammer, a Greathammer that scales off Strength, Dex, and Faith. It’s an ideal weapon for players with high strength and is powerful in PvP. Regal Beastclaw, the weapon’s unique skill, deals a great amount of damage due to its range and very fast moveset.

The Beastclaw Greathammer can be obtained from Gurranq after you turn in their 7th Deathroot.

Halo Scythe + Winged Scythe

The Halo Scythe is a Reaper that scales primarily with Dex and Strength, and is an amazing weapon for fighters who are Faith-based. Its unique skill, Miquella’s Ring of Light, allows your character to swing this weapon, summoning a halo of light that shoots forward. This skill deals Holy Damage and applies Bleeding buildup to everyone it hits. The Halo Scythe creates an incredible amount of space that gives more freedom to your character while in PvP.

You can obtain the Halo Scythe from Cleanrot Knights located south of the Heart of Aeonia. Equipping this reaper together with the Winged Scythe increases your AR by an ample amount. Top it off with its unique skill, Angel’s Wings, this combination has become a favorite of many Tarnished.

 

Magma Wyrm’s Scalesword

The Magma Wyrm’s Scalesword is a Curved Greatsword that scales with Strength, Dex, and Faith. It is another good weapon for dealing additional fire damage. Its unique skill, the Magma Guillotine, deals respectable damage in PvE, especially against bosses. On the other hand, the magma blasts are incredibly powerful in PvP and are more than enough to easily kill other players.

This Scalesword is dropped from Magma Wyrm Makar in Ruin-Strewn Precipice.

Total War Three Kingdoms: Court Guide

Shameful display!

total war three kingdoms court guide

Going to war and managing your troops in the heat of battle has always been the core gameplay of Total War, either that or deliberately heading straight into battle outgunned or outnumbered in order to test the mettle of your troops. But with the Three Kingdoms things can get mighty confusing when you’re not out fighting. You’d be surprised how something as simple as choosing who to put on councils can take up your time when you’re not quite sure of your decisions. That will all go away as we show you the way of heaven’s will in this guide and lead your kingdom to prosperity!

Court Guide | Total War Three Kingdoms

Now the court is made up of your faction leaders, heirs, and your administrators. You manage your dynasty here as you unlock more positions when you progress. Let’s go further into detail below and see how you can manage your people better.

While you’re in the in-game map click on the Court button or press 2 to bring up the rest of your family tree. What you can do here first is to hover over everyone’s portraits to see the positive and negative benefits they can offer if they’re to be assigned to a certain position.

Next thing that you should be on the lookout for is the character’s Background. You can find this by hovering over the general’s name, there’s plenty of generals each with their own unique background so be careful who you choose! For this example, Liu Bei is a Virtuous Idealist. That helps you with public order and upkeep but gives you 25% less income due to their poor background.

Another interesting thing to keep in mind are the basic Traits. You will have to keep a close eye on this as it influences character relations throughout the campaign. Same with the Background, there are numerous Traits in the game and your character can earn more as you progress with them.

Of course besides the individual Traits and Backgrounds you also would want to know more about navigating the Court itself. Each individual position in the court will have its own explanation and allows you to see the rank required in order to unlock it.

You can choose good old fashioned nepotism and assign a post to a family member or a general who’s done actual work with their own hands. Each character will offer various bonuses depending on the position they’re assigned to.

Remember – not all your characters need to be out in the field as some of them are more proficient with administrative affairs. The pen is mightier than the sword, and all of that.

Now that you’ve assigned a post to the members of your Court the next thing you need to do is to make sure everyone is satisfied. You wouldn’t want someone in a position of power to complain and suddenly decide it would be in their best interest to rebel! That gets in the way of prosperity and no one wants that.

In order to view a character’s Satisfaction go and hover over their character panel or check the characters list on your campaign screen. If you choose the character panel check to the right of their age in order to see their opinion about you.

Some of the things you can do to make sure they don’t look elsewhere is to make sure that the post you assigned to them is compatible with their class. For example if your character’s class is Sentinel then you would want to make that character into an Administrator.

Lastly, it’s recommended that you assign a post that complements their level. Give them a post that’s too out of reach for them and their satisfaction will suffer just as much. Now that’s good work ethic!

And that is how you manage internal affairs in Total War: Three Kingdoms. Now that you know the intricacies of the court you can be your very own Sun Tzu and lead by example!
