There are so many combinations of builds you can make in Elden Ring. You can experiment with a myriad of sets to arrive at the most suitable match for your class. The Sorcery Sentinel is one of the many builds that players want to have.

How to Build a Sorcery Sentinel in Elden Ring

The Sorcery Sentinel is a late-game build in Elden Ring that does tons of physical damage because of its strength and dexterity scaling. At the same time, it also deals decent magic damage at range. Find out how to build a Sorcery Sentinel with this guide.

Weapon & Skills

For weapons, the Watchdog’s Staff is highly recommended because of its unique ability, Sorcery of the Crozier. This does a tracking projectile spell at distance that deals pretty good damage, that is like a caster. At the same time, you’re also using a colossal weapon with high strength and dexterity. This weapon allows you to deal decent magic damage with no points in intelligence and faith.

Armor

When it comes to Armor, the Omensmirk Mask increases strength by another two points. The Okina Mask can also be used for dexterity but you will have to put some points in endurance since it is heavy. Then, the Raptor’s Black Feathers can increase your jump attack damage by 10 percent although you can choose to use a more protective chest armor if you want. The other two armor pieces aren’t that important as long as they give you decent protection.

Talismans

Talismans, on the other hand, have a lot of options. Magic Scorpion Charm increases the damage of your weapon ability. Carian Filigreed Crest reduces the FP cost of your weapon ability down to 15-12, which will allow you to use your ability more frequently. Claw Talisman increases your jump attack damage even further. Lastly, Ancestral’s Spirit Horn can increase your FP as you kill enemies.

Stats

For your Sorcery Sentinel’s stats, focus on Vigor, Strength, and Dexterity. You will need a bunch of health to help keep you alive since you will often trade damage with this aggressive build. Strength and Dexterity are there to increase the overall damage of your weapon.

Shameful display!

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!
