Getting to level 100 opens up a lot of built possibilities in Elden Ring, one of which is the Frenzied Acolyte build. It’s a great choice if you want to make a character-focused on casting powerful spells from a distance.

How to Build a Frenzied Acolyte in Elden Ring

This built is almost completely focused on casting spells, so you want to focus mostly on dealing magical damage at the cost of everything else. This means that, during combat, you’d want to stay away from enemies, as your stats offer little In terms of protection and don’t meet the requirements for most stronger pieces of armor and weapons.

Frenzied Acolyte Stats

You’d want to have at least 45 arcane and somewhere between 30-35 Fait, although feel free to dump more points into faith if you feel you don’t need them for anything else. The mind stat should also be around 30.

Vigor is a bit more controversial – if you want to focus only on dealing damage, you don’t need more than 25, but if you want to survive more than one hit from an enemy, you might want to trade some of the points from the other stats for it. Other stats are completely useless, so you can ignore them unless there’s a specific piece of equipment you want that requires them to be high enough.

Frenzied Acolyte Equipment

You can mostly choose whatever weapons and armor you want for this build, though generally, you’d want things that either give bonuses to Arcane and Faith or increase your Focus. Some of the spells you’ll be using inflict the Madness status effect – the problem is, this status also affects you when casting. Focus makes you less susceptible to Madness.

Frenzied Acolyte Spells

The Talismans you’d want to use include the Godfrey Icon, Ritual Sword Talisman, Faithful’s Canvas Talisman and Fire Scorpion Charm. The whole build is dependent on you using the seals that enhance the type of spell you’d want to cast – in one hand, you want to have the Dragon Communion Seal, while in your offhand you’d rotate between the Gravel Stone Seal, Godslayer’s Seal and the Frenzied Flame Seal.

Your spells will be The Flame of Frenzy, Frenzied Burst, Black Flame, Lightning Spear, Golden Vow and Flame, Grant Me Strength.  These have different elemental affinity, so depending on what enemies you fight, you’d want to use different spells. Just be careful and keep your distance – this built isn’t known for its endurance.

The Garden of Endless Pillars is located within the northwestern part of the Sumeru Desert. Once you’ve reached there, you’ll notice a giant slab cemented in the dunes, along with various Pyro totems surrounding it nearby.

There will be various mirage walls across the region, but they should be fairly easy to traverse, while hitting the totems with Pyro attacks.

We’ll explain how to successfully complete the Totem Puzzle in the “Garden of Endless Pillars” Guide – read on for our walkthrough.

Totem Puzzle for Garden of Endless Pillars Guide in Genshin Impact

The very first thing you’ll need to do is go to the Garden of Endless Pillars location on the map, which we’ve indicated in the screenshots below.

Once you’ve reached The Garden of Endless Pillars, you’ll need to switch over to Amber, as you’ll have to utilize Pyro attacks on the corresponding totems.

The first totem is extremely easy, as there are no walls blocking you – simply take a right upon entering the area, and shoot the totem.

To reach the second totem (pictured above) you will have to walk forward a fair bit until you spot the totem located in the right-hand corner. As you are blocked by the wall, you will need to traverse onto the concrete pillars to get a vantage point from which you can target the second totem.

Head right for the next totem, located in front of crumbled concrete walls. To find the last two totems, proceed forward and take a slight left. The very last one is located to the right, opposite of the prior totem.

Hitting all the totems will cause the slab to activate, and after this sequence, you will unlock a fast travel point for this region, which you can then use moving forward throughout the new update.
