Buffs and Debuffs in Elden Ring are categories of Status Effects. This page covers how Buffs and Debuffs stack, the potency of their effects, their FP costs, and their stat requirements.

The tables provided below do not provide an exhaustive list of every status effect in the game, only those that fall into exclusive categories and are prone to being overridden.

  • See Status Effects for all status buildups and other effects applied to your character.
  • See Damage Types to identify the best sources and resistances for all damage types.
  • See Special Weaknesses for details on types of enemies weak to particular equipment.

As of 4/24/2023, this page is up-to-date with Patch 1.09.1.

Buff & Debuff Order Tips in Elden Ring

Spells require a catalyst to be cast:

The Old Lord's Talisman increases the duration of buff Spells by 30%.

Armament buffs, excluding Skills, require wielding the armament in a certain hand:

Armament buffs are lost when the armament is swapped.

When dual-wielding, Skills are used from the right-hand armament:

Buffs & Debuffs often stack multiplicatively (e.g., Red-Feathered Branchsword (+20% Damage) and Exalted Flesh (+20% Physical Damage) would result in +44% Physical Damage).

For Skills such as Golden Vow, the Caestus and the Dagger are immediately usable by all Classes, and have the lowest weight among all weapons which can use the Ash of War.

Elden Ring Buffs and Debuffs Notes & Tips

  • Effects from differing categories can occasionally share status icons.
  • Certain effects have visual priority over others (e.g., Uplifting Aromatic's uplifting aromatic elden ring wiki guide 200px  Unique Buff shield).
  • Consumables must be bought, crafted, or found, making Spells and Skills more convenient as they often only require FP.
  • Talismans were included on this page only in cases where their effects are uniquely non-stackable/redundant when paired with one of the temporary buffs/debuffs.

      What about seppuku, or the similar madness and poison ones where you dmg yourself and get buffed? It’s a key part of the one shot builds but mentioned nowhere on this page.

        Just tried it and unfortunately Cleanrot Knight Finlay's buff is both a regen buff and a body buff, and therefore does not stack with other of its type (blessing of the erdtree will cancel the healing part of the ashes buff).

          Ritual shield talisman effect at full health appears to count as a body buff. Can someone else please confirm?

          • Anonymous

            ritual shield talisman buff at full health counts as a body buff. Will test to see if same is true for blue feathered branch sword.

                so if im not mistaken, i should be able to power stance 2 weapons with braggart roar on one and endure on the other and neither should cancel?

                  Spell weapon buffs aren't very good without the raw infusion, unless you like double dipping into multiple stats

                    It mentions that Sacred Order stops Skeletons from reviving, but doesn't say it on Sacred Blade. But I assure you that not only will the projectile not let them revive if it kills, but they also will not revive if killed while your weapon is still buffed from the AoW either.

                      The table shows 5 extra categories that weren't mentioned in the article:
                      1 - Health Regen
                      2 - Stamina Regen
                      3 - Fall Damage
                      4 - Dodge Roll
                      5 - Unique.

                      I want to know if buffs of type 'Stamina Regen' (pickled turtle neck and greenburst crystal tear) can stack.

                        What’s with this random debuff that says my healing from flasks is lowered? I took off all armor, weapons, and talismans. It’s still there. Why are my healing flasks reduced and what’s with this debuff? Not health reduction, HEALING reduction.

                        • I... Still have no idea what any of this means. Like, in trying to read it, but I just don't get it. I get status effects, but that's about it.

                            The Defense Shred section should probably just be Shred because Acidspray Mist counts as a Shred as they all overwrite each other. Also the Oil Pot stacks with the Shreds therefore it should actually be in the Unique section.

                            And the moon spells doing the same increased damage as Greyoll's Roar looks silly when you have the moon's posted as 20% instead of 10%.
                            Astonishing how many parts of this wiki in the both the pages and comment section across the wiki has people posting wrong about absorption stat because they can't math or do tests in PvP naked. Especially on the moon spell pages.
                            For example you can clearly see how Pierce damage increases by 15% on counter hits. When naked with 0% absorption and in a counter state the Pierce becomes -15%. But with the Ritual Shield Talisman you go from 30 Pierce to 19.5 in counter state. That's still a 15% increase in damage. So I got no clue where this 20 number on the moon spells are coming from.

                            Also Soul Stifler duration on this page is outdated. It should be 60sec.

                            Overal Greyoll's Roar hands down the best Shred as a support/debuffer.

                              Is Destined Death(Maliketh's Black Blade skill) and Black Blade(Incantation) actually weaker than the Blade Of Death(Black Knife skill) or is the wiki wrong?

                                I hope that incoming DLC patch will have a buff that negate all debuff , just make it a body buff for balance (not stack with dmg nagate buff)
                                since everyone in pvp only use cheap build such as bleed , sleep , madness and FromSoft can not fix debuff proc without damage (yeah you can get free stun with sleep even they can roll all your attack)

                                I don't know how hard to program like if you don't get dmg then you don't get debuff proc when the debuff in come form weapon or somewhat that (Im not dev) , but if we have this buff , at least we will solve this issue ourselve.

                                  oil pots description should read "by ffire" at the end to provide a clear accurate understanding without having to refer to the full article to clarify that detail.

                                    Stupid question, but... Does the pvp nerf for buffs apply if you're a summon helping the host against a boss or only against invaders/duelists? I'm just trying to figure out of the buffs are worth it when helping people out or just a waste of fp

                                    • Shouldn't Black Flame's Protection be put under Barriers, rather than Greater Barriers? It has the same DR value as the lesser ones, at 35%, rather than 60%, like the greater ones.

                                        wouldn't 'dragonbolt blessing' be an aura buff not a body buff? or maybe I just don't understand the difference, but after casting dragonbolt blessing you can see lightning dancing all over your armour, or is an aura buff only when you see gold or red waves of light around you?

                                          gotta help out the noobs who still buff spam in pvp. if you think its not pvp nerfed, it is. idc about defense, but attack rating increases; golden vow ash of war is 3% increase, exulted flesh is 15%, shared order is 3%, golden great arrow buff is 1% hard to measure all the ramping up damage effects like rotten winged talisman, but they are heavily nerfed in pvp borderline worthless. warcry/roar are 12% not 7.5, idk who tf got that number. meaning golden vow spell, exulted flesh, bloodboil, and flask elemental buffs are pretty much the only buffs worth using

                                            So I'm a bit confused. The sword of milos debuff can or can't stack with the black blade incantation debuff?

                                            • Radagon's Soreseal is amazing +5 to all stats, but it's not. You take 15% more damage. By the time you reach the fire giant, you should just level up and get rid of this piece of ****. It's easy to get +STR +DEX +INT talismans and you can easily get the Silver Tear Mask for +8 to Arcane.

                                              • This biggest buff of all time is to simply change your graphic settings to low - particularly when fighting in Consecrated Snowfields or Farum Azula ... also the Fire Giant and Rykard... and Astel and many other areas. If you see massive environmental happenings, turn your graphic settings to low and you won't get that graphic lag which is a ****ing killer.

                                                • Fyi, you forgot the fire damage crystal tear, THAT stacks extremely well with Rallying Standard, Flame Grant Me Strength and most don't know but War Cry can stack with itself TWICE (dual wielding), because it's a weapon skill you can put it on BOTH weapons while the buff itself ALREADY applies to BOTH weapons. As long as you don't remove a weapon you will receive +10% to BOTH weapons TWICE.

                                                        (Understandably) this page is missing the buff obtained from Golden Great Arrows. They give a 45 second buff to defense and offense to self and allies within a meter or so of the arrow's impact (needs to be fired at your own feet to receive the buff yourself). I assume it's in the aura family of buffs, but I'll check around and make sure before confirming.

                                                                  Can be stacked with themself? Correct me if im wrong, but if i were to spam CONTAGIOUS FURY (jellyfish shield) for 20 seconds straight, then id have 10 seconds of super high damage before the first buff runs out?

                                                                  So hear me out: We take Terra magic, Golden Vow, Uplifting Aromatic, and once they are all applied we spam Contagious Fury and drink the physick potion that gives unlimited FP for a short time to fire Comet Azur (I think that was the lazer beam like spell) and we should, assuming its times correctly and the Contagious Fury stacks with everything else, get damage high enough to evaporate anything.
                                                                  If the character using this is invested the almost all points into INT, a little bit into Faith (for golden vow) and a little bit into mind to ensure all spells can be cast before using the physick potion and the staff that boosts damage for higher FP cost is used then this will be devastating.

                                                                  Again, this assumes that Contagious Fury stacks with both all the other buffs and itself which allows a player to spam it for a crazy buff.

                                                                  • Anonymous

If an uplifting aromatic is used before the Rallying Standard, the shield effect stays while the buff is overwritten by the later, which is higher.
