Buffs and Debuffs in Elden Ring are categories of Status Effects. This page will cover how Buffs and Debuffs stack, the potency of their effects, FP costs, and their respective stat requirements.
However, this page will not include an exhaustive list of every effect in the game, only those which are temporary and how they're categorized.

  • See Status Effects for all status buildups and other effects applied to your character.
  • See Equipment with Special Effects for special stat-increasing or effect-granting weapons and armor.
  • See Damage Types to identify the best sources and resistances for all damage types.
  • See Affinities for a comparison of each affinity's effects and their respective whetblades.

 

Stacking Buffs & Debuffs in Elden Ring

status effect 55 elden ring wiki guide 44pxPermanent Buffs and buffs from permanent sources, their effects represented by a square border, can be freely stacked:

status effect 54 elden ring wiki guide 44pxTemporary Buffs, their effects represented by a diamond border, fall into categories where only one of each category can be active a time:

  • Weapon
  • Shield
  • Body
  • Aura

Buildup Debuffs can be freely stacked:

Temporary Debuffs fall into categories where only one of each category can be active a time:

  • Defense Shred
  • Destined Death

The Unique categories below are used as a catch-all for the remaining Buffs & Debuffs which don't share a "slot" and can be freely stacked.

Buff & Debuff Order Tips in Elden Ring

Spells require a catalyst to cast:

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

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

Armament buffs are lost when the armament is swapped.

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

Consumables can be used at any time.

Buffs & Debuffs often stack multiplicatively (e.g., Red-Feathered Branchsword (+20% Damage) and Exalted Flesh (+20% Physical Damage) result in 1.44x Physical Damage).

For Skills such as Golden Vow, the Dagger is immediately usable by all Classes with its low stat requirements of STR 5 / DEX 9.

Honorable Mentions/Strange Behaviors

  • Ironjar Aromatic supersedes other Body Buffs. Once applied, you must wait until the end of its duration to apply another body buff.
  • Old Lord's Talisman increases the total healing from Incantations instead of simply extending their durations as it did in previous titles.
  • Uplifting Aromatic's damage negation shield persists even after using another Aura Buff. This shield's damage negation stacks with the Opaline Bubbletear, but it will not increase the number of hits you can take before the shield breaks.
  • Rallying Standard is affected by the duration increase of Old Lord's Talisman, despite not being a Spell.

Elden Ring Buffs and Debuffs Notes & Tips

  • Effects from differing categories can occasionally share status icons.
  • Certain effects have a visual priority over others (e.g., Uplifting Aromatic's shield).
  • Consumables often require Materials, making Spells and Skills more convenient for repeated use as they often only require FP.
  • Bolded and underlined Duration values indicate how long the effect is usable, not its full duration.
    • e.g., Cured Meats require time to dispel initial status buildup
  • Talismans were included under Fall Damage and Dodge Rolls on this page as they're uniquely non-stackable with their temporary buff counterparts.
  • "Why 'Damage' and not 'Attack Power?'" The game itself can be inconsistent and you're free to simply read "Damage" as "Attack Power" if it makes more sense that way.
  • "'Silenced Movement' and 'Disable Flasks' don't have their own categories. Why?" Need to eventually add them to their own tables, but it's low priority.

      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.

                      Sooo, which buffs can co-exist? I mean nice overview, but it's the same Elden Ring principle again: Big chaos, some logics, try all the 50000 combination and see what happens.

                        How are you supposed to tell the difference between a weapon and aura buff. Especially when a weapons skill has an aura buff!

                          (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.

                            MIssing the Red and Blue Feathered Branch Sword Talisman Buffs (while under 20% health). They may be circumstantial, but they are still buffs.

                              Most useful page for beginners, seeing someone buffing himself with BFlame protection and FlameGMS is painful

                                Golden Vow(Incantation) will overwrite Boiled Crab. Using Boiled Crab while Golden Vow(Incantation) is active does nothing.

                                  Sure wish there was a body damage buff that lasted 90 seconds and lined up perfectly with Golden Vow and Electrify Armament / Order's Blade / Scholar's Armament.

                                    "Exception Buffs are exactly that; exceptions. They do not follow the behavior of the other aforementioned buffs and can be stacked with both themselves and other types of buffs without concern."

                                    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.

                                      When.. does a buff overwrite another buff because

                                      The sacred order ash of war doesnt overwrite the rallying standard on me.
                                      But i not complaining

                                        The Jellyfish shield’s Contagious Fury seems to stack with everything as long as you still have it equipped (the buff leaves even if you switch to two-handing your weapon).

                                          If you are going for a support build, the best buffs that don't negate each other are Rallying Standard for the Aura, Blessing of the Erdtree for the regen buff and a damage negation barrier apropriate for the situation. 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. Any additional effects from ashes of war can be used without conflicting with the above buffs.
