Elden Ring: How to Build a Blasphemous Herald

Elden Ring is no stranger to build variety. One of the most fun builds you can run in the game is the Blasphemous Herald, a build that centers on the Blasphemous Blade armament.

The Blasphemous Blade is one of the strongest armaments in the game, not in base damage but in its Ash of War, the Taker’s Flames. When it connects, it can deal devastating damage to your target and can even stagger it. What’s more, it even heals you for 10% of your max HP + 150 flat HP per enemy hit.

Lastly, the weapon also heals you for 4% of your max HP whenever you kill an enemy, even if the kill was not due to this weapon. It’s for this reason that the Blasphemous Herald build is so strong.

Let’s have a look at what makes up the build.

How to Build a Blasphemous Herald in Elden Ring

As mentioned, this build revolves around the Blasphemous Blade which is a greatsword that deals both physical and fire damage and scales primarily off of Faith. However, you won’t be relying on the weapon’s Ash of War alone. Instead, you’ll be dual-wielding the weapon on the right with the Gargoyle’s Blackblade on the left.

The reason why we’re going for this weapon is because it also scales off of Faith as well as Strength, allowing you to benefit from both stats. Compared to Blasphemous Blade, however, this one deals physical and holy damage. As such, you can just freely swap between each weapon whenever you want to fight an enemy that’s resistant to holy, fire, or vice versa.

Making Yourself Tanky

The good part about this build is that you can still be tanky while dealing an insane amount of damage. In some cases, you might even shrug off enemy attacks and even trade hits in certain situations. As for the armor, you’ll want to use the Raptor’s Black Feathers for a damage increase to your jump attacks.

Meanwhile, use the Tree Sentinel gear for the rest for maximum protection without having to fat roll. You should also use the Dragoncrest Greatshield Talisman to increase your overall physical damage negation values.

Which Talismans to Use

As for the talismans, the Dragoncrest Greatshield Talisman mentioned earlier is necessary to help you tank and even trade hits. Then, you’ll want to equip the Claw Talisman to increase the damage of your jump attacks.

Keep in mind not to spam your ash of war. Instead, focus on jump attacks to deal massive damage and use the ash of war only when you have a window to pull it off. Then, you also want to use Radagon’s Soreseal for a +5 increase to your Strength, Vigor, Endurance, and Dexterity stats. This will increase the damage you take, though we can offset that with the Dragoncrest Greatshield Talisman.

Lastly, you’ll want to equip the Great Jar’s Arsenal to increase your equip load, especially if you don’t have enough investment in Endurance. This will prevent you from fat rolling while allowing you to wear heavy armor.

How to Play the Build

The gameplay of this build is pretty simple. First, you’ll want to buff yourself with the Golden Vow for that extra damage and defense bonus. Then, you’ll also want to cast the Blessing of the Erdtree incantation to provide you with a heal over time over a long duration. This will provide you with an extra layer of survivability even if just a little.

During battles, you simply have to spam your jump attacks whenever you get an opportunity to do so. Meanwhile, if the boss you’re fighting is within a safe distance or is staggered, you can spam the Taker’s Flame ash of war to deal huge damage and heal you at the same time.

The latest update brings tons of things into the game and with it, a number of achievements to complete.

One of the content is called “A Rare Realm” achievement where you will have to create one of three known world seeds released in the latest update.

Unlike some of the achievements where you will have to walk a certain number of steps, dig a specific number of blocks, and the like, the achievement we will be tackling today can be obtained fairly early into your game.

In this guide, we will show you how to create one of the latest World seeds in Terraria 1.4.4 and nab the “A Rare Realm” achievement at the same time in Terraria 1.4.4.

Guide on How to Get A Rare Realm Achievement in Terraria

The achievement unlocks if you create a world that is unique in Terraria. These realms can be created after you select your character and create a specific realm with unique effects.

Some examples of these are the no traps seed, zenith seed, remix seed and so much more.

Start the game and select your character

To begin, launch your game from your desktop. This achievement can also be unlocked on the mobile version of Terraria on IOS and Android. Next, select your character and click play.

Create a New World

You will have to create a new world from scratch on the option of which world to play on. Select create a new world and fill out the world details.

Be mindful of the difficulty level of your character when creating a new world otherwise, you won’t be able to play in the world you have created.

In our case, our character difficulty is set to classic so we will be creating a world on the classic difficulty settings.

You can freely select the world size and the evil alignment. This won’t affect you getting the achievement in the end.

Next, select a world name and on the seed tab, type in “no traps”. With everything set, click the create button.

Wait for your world to be created

Depending on the world’s size, you will have to wait for the world to finish generating. A small world will take you about a minute or so whereas the larger worlds could take around 3 to 4 minutes.

The No Traps seed will let you generate a world with no traps in it so you can explore the world with no fear of booby traps in the areas.

Select and Play in Your Newly Created World

When the realm is fully generated select it from the list of worlds that you have created. Entering the world for the first time will grant you the “A Rare Realm” achievement. Now go explore your new “Trap Free” world with leisure.
