Elden Ring Samurai Notes & Tips

  • Unsheathe is an extremely powerful ability. Learning to use it often makes this Class much more powerful.
  • Thin out enemies with Arrows and then finish them with the Uchigatana.
  • The best stat spread for pure Dexterity builds and tied with Vagabond for Strength/Dexterity hybrid builds. Also ideal for Dexterity/Arcane hybrid builds requiring 11 or more Strength, Bandit is better for 10 or less Strength.
  • Recommended for New Players and Veterans.
