Basically, we’ll farm everything, every Golden Runematerial or consumable will be found and looted if you follow this guide. You’ll finish your first playthrough with plenty of materials to do anything you want in your New Game+ or Co-op / PvP game after.

I’ve planned this guide to do everything in the most efficient order, so that we never hit difficulty walls and complete the full game with as little deaths as possible. Every upgrade that can help will be obtained at the right moment, you’ll be warned in advance of every ambush and trap, there will be an optimal strategy for each of the 170 bosses in Elden Ring.

  • If you’ve never played a souls game before, I guarantee you will Platinum this game without any problems if you follow my guide.
  • If you’re a casual gamer or 70+ year old with bad reflexes, I guarantee you will Platinum this game too.
  • If you’re a veteran souls player, I guarantee you won’t regret following this guide, it will save you a lot of time and you’ll probably learn a few tricks and hidden game mechanics.

We’ll start the game with a few basic combat mechanics, get some early upgrades and progressively add more tools to our arsenal and explore some advanced combat tactics as well as new game mechanics which only exist in Elden Ring.

The Build

We’ll start with a very simple quality build and keep it that way in the early game. We’ll be very powerful and kill our first two Shardbearers that way.

Then we’ll use a single Larval Tear to respec and go a different route. We’ll be go heavy in INT and switch to one of the strongest weapons in the game, Moonveil, which will not only make us extremely strong in melee, but also have access to a range of Sorceries which will make us even more powerful and versatile.

About midway through our adventure, we’ll also acquire the most iconic weapon in all souls games: the Dark Moon Greatsword, which will make us even stronger. That’s the general path we’ll take, but there will be many other surprises and upgrades we’ll pick up along the way. We’ll of course use Summons, Ashes of war, Shields and strong counters. We’ll also use a bit of crafting in certain situations to use pots. And we’ll use Perfumes, which are incredibly underrated.

One of my goals was to showcase a very strong yet versatile character build, instead of a one-trick pony type of character. I wished I could have included more variety, such as Incantations and Dragon Communion Incantations, but it would’ve required more respecing to make this viable and keep our power curve above the enemies we encounter. So I kept it simple and focused primarily on making this build simpleefficient and most importantly: get us through Elden Ring without any painful hurdles such as dying 10+ times to the same boss or difficult area.

The Guide’s format

This is a double format Guide. There is a full video walkthrough AND a very compact text walkthrough.

The video walkthrough will contain more detailed combat tips, so I suggest you check them out.

Each video will have a list of timecodes with all the important moments in the episodes:

  • Timecode for each Item obtained
  • Timecode for each Combat tip and boss strategy
  • Timecode for each Important info given
  • Timecode for each Trophy obtained

All cut scenes and NPC dialogues will be includedbut if you want to skip them it will be quite easy to do so: each video will be spilt into chapters, with clear labels so you can skip the parts you don’t want to watch or would rather watch on your own.

The text version of my Elden Ring walkthrough should also be quite useful, it is very compact, and whenever the direction or explanation isn’t detailed enough, you can always check the video to get a clearer direction.


Q: Will I get all trophies, including the platinum, if I follow your guide?

A: Yes of course. But much more than that. You’ll get everything you can possibly get in one playthrough. All items, weapons, spells, etc. Everything.

Q: Do I have to follow your character build exactly ?

A: No. You can follow this guide and do your own build and you’ll be fine. However, this is a very optimized guide and I believe the builds I use are extremely fun and powerful. Some strategies in the later part of the game are specific to my build, so you’ll have to find your own strategies if you don’t have the same skills / spells.

Q: Can I follow your guide if I’m on PC / PS / Xbox?

A: Yes. This guide works for ALL platforms.

Q: I love your guides! How can I support your work?

A: There are many ways to help me become a full time guide writer:

  1. ✅Subscribe to the channel
  2. 👍Like and comment every video
  3. 📢Share this walkthrough to your communities / forums / friends
  4. 💖Leave a tip:

Q: Is there a way to get the Gesture: The Ring if I didn’t preorder the game?

A: Yes. You have to play co-op and defeat a boss with someone who preordered the game.

Q: Why don’t you enable the Martyr Effigy?

A: Because it’s a personal choice. Many players don’t want to play Elden Ring (or other Souls games) online, no co-op and no PvP. Once you enable a Martyr Effigy, there is no way to disable it. So it’s really a matter of preferences. If you don’t want to PvP or to co-op at a specific location, you should never enable that Martyr Effigy. Also, this guide is 100% focused on PvE. It’s not a PvP guide or a co-op guide. It’s actually everything but that.

Q: Are you also covering rare drops from farmable enemies?

A: No. The guide would be way too long. The only exception will be the Brass Shield because we’ll use it in our build and it’s probably the best shield in the game in terms of weight / strength requirement to Guard Boost ratio. None of the other farmable rare drops are necessary, because the best items in the game are guaranteed drops.

Character creation

Origin: Samurai

You can pick a different origin if you like, especially if you want to take a different path for your character build.

But in the end it doesn’t really matter, at high level those starting attributes won’t matter at all.

Let me tell you why Samurai is a good starting class:

  • Katana is an amazing weapon with great stats, innate bleed buildup and one of the best Ashes of War in the game
  • Samurai starts with a Longbow, which will be quite useful early on
  • The starting stats spread is perfect for our quality build and the unique weapon we’ll switch to soon.

Keepsake: Lands Between Rune is the best choice, it gives us some early runes to spend to have an easier start

  • Why not pick the Golden Seed? Because we’ll get plenty Golden Seeds early and reach the maximum amount of flask charges regardless. We’ll finish the game with 12 extra Golden Seeds, so it’s useless to pick this keepsake.
  • Why not pick the Stonesword Key? Because we’ll finish our first playthrough with 34 Stonesword Keys to spare, and that’s after opening every single imp statue.
  • Why not pick any other other item? Because we’ll get them all during our first platythrough anyway.

As much as you can
Warp to Elden Throne
Our final battle is a 2 round boss fight:
  1. Radagon
  2. Elden Beast
Check video for detailed strategy, we can’t power through this final battle, we’ll have to learn the attack patterns and learn how to dodge them
Radagon will actually be easy because our Mimic will be there to tank the whole fight, but we must still be careful because Radagon has some really powerful attacks
Elden Beast:
Elden Beast moves around a lot and has some realy wide attacks, so even if Mimic is still alive and tanking, you’ll have to dodge most of the attacks anyway
There’s very little chance that Mimic stays alive the whole fight, you will have to finish this fight solo, so you must learn how to dodge and when to strike
Both bosses do Holy damage. Radagon also does Strike damage, Elden Beast does Slash damage. So we’ll try to put on the beefiest armor we can to lower those 3 damage types.
Here’s my recommended setup for the final battle:
   Unequip Carian Regal Scepter
   Unequip Shield
We’ll be 2-Handing the Dark Moon Greatsword throughout the fight
   Bull-Goat Helm
   Bull-Goat Armor
   Bull-Goat Gauntlets
   Bull-Goat Greaves
Note: if you don’t have enough END to wear that, or don’t have any Rune Arcs left, just equip something a little lighter to reach Medium Load.
Omen Armor set has very good Holy resistance, so if you don’t mind the bad fashion, it’s a solid choice.
   Dragoncrest Greatshield Talisman
   Erdtree’s Favor +2
   Godfrey Icon
   Shard of Alexander
Mix Wondrous Physiks:
   Magic-Shrouding Cracked Tear
   Spiked Cracked Tear
Hotkey consumables:
   Exalted Flesh
   Uplifting Aromatic
Before entering, buff up with:
Uplifting Aromatic
Exalted Flesh
Mimic, Heal, let Mimic get aggro
Charged R2 Arcs
If you get targeted by Radagon, do your best to dodge, let Mimic get the aggro back, heal up and repeat
Try to buff up with Flask of Physick and Moonlight just before dealing the final blow to Radagon
As soon as Radagon dies, you have a few seconds to buff up with Uplifting Aromatic and Exalted Flesh
Elden Beast
Get 2x Charged R2  Arcs at the start, then run behind the boss, who will almost always start with his Golden Breath attack
Get another Charged R2 from behind and depending on the next move you can even land a 4th Charged R2
If you get a stagger, you can land 1 Charged R2 and one quick R2 before going for the R1 critical hit
Then it’s all about dodging and attacking at the right time, it will take some practice but this shouldn’t be too hard
Check video to see all Elden Beast moves and how to deal with them
Keep practicing until you defeat it:
  • Elden Remembrance
==Important== Now don’t touch any of the summon signs on the floor. Don’t touch the statue either.
Instead, activate Site of Grace: Fractured Marika
You’ve got 500 000 Runes. You can level up or spend them on whatever you like at Roundhold Table before making a save.
Now is the time to make a save. This is the most important one if you want to be able to complete all the endings in one playthrough. We’ll have to reload that save 5 times to see all the endings (only 3 necessary to get the Platinum, but this is a 100% Walkthrough, so we’ll see all endings of course!)
So make sure you have at least one backup of that save file before you do anyting else.
  • How do I back up & restore my save file on PS4/PS5? – Console Settings > Saved Data Management > Saved Data > Console Storage > Upload your save to PS+ Cloud [PS5/PS4] or USB flash drive [PS4 only]. If using PS+ cloud (only option on PS5) make sure you have automatic save sync uploads disabled or else it could automatically overwrite your cloud save (PS5 Settings > Saved Data and Game/App Settings > Saved Data PS5 > Sync Saved Data > Auto-Sync Saved Data = Disabled). To copy it back: Console Settings > Saved Data Management > Saved Data > Cloud Storage / USB Drive > Copy to Console > Overwrite console saves.
  • How to back up & restore saves on PC? – For Steam it should be C:\ Users\ [username]\ AppData\ Roaming\ EldenRing  – but also back up the other Steam folder to be safe – C:\ Program Files (x86)\ Steam\ userdata. Copy and paste these into another folder where you can find it later. To restore the save, paste it back and overwrite. If you don’t see the AppData folder in your C:\ Users\ [username]\ , you need to go to Folder Propertises and tick the show Hidden Folders option.
  • How to back up & restore saves on Xbox One/Xbox Series? – disconnect yourself from the internet > move around in-game whilst disconnected from internet for a few seconds > reconnect yourself back to the internet > now it will force a cloud save > (double-check that it really uploaded to the cloud) > do what you need without exiting the game (exiting the game may overwrite cloud save) > when done, press Home-Button > scroll down to Elden Ring > press Options > Manage Game > Saved Data > click Gamertag > Delete Saved Data > Delete from Console > if it still shows the save, delete it again until it’s gone > press Home-Button and restart the game > it will now sync/download your backup save from cloud.
If you don’t want to use the save trick and you’d rather do several New Game+ to complete all the endings, I suggest starting with either the Age of the Stars ending (touch the blue summon sign), because it’s quite a long quest line and you might not want to have to do it again in your next playthrough.
Or the Flame of Frenzy curse, because Hyetta’s quest line is also quite long.
Rune of the Fell Curse ending is also long because it requires to go through all the sewers area again in Leyndell, plus collecting 5 Seedbed Curses, so that means Volcano Manor + Miquella’s Haligtree will have to be explored again, but this Ending is not needed for the Platinum so you should save it for last if your really want to do all Endings, even the non-trophy related ones.
Also, feel free to change armor to your favorite fashion before starting the ending cut scenes😉

Go to the Finger Reader and use Remembrances as you please
Go to the Twin Maiden Husks
Give any bell bearings you still have
Purchase all spells and items you want from them and the bell bearing shops
Warp to Church of Vows (east Liurnia)
Purchase all Sorceries and Inantations you want from Miriel
All of those are not tied to any trophy, it’s just for completing your arsenal.
And you can do that later as well in this playthrough after completing all the Endings.

04:25 Reloading an Elden Ring Save




13:26 Episode End


I’ll do the endings in the following order:
Touch Fractured Marika
“Mend the Elden Ring”– This gives us the standard ending.
Achievement Unlocked: Elden Lord
Total Trophies Unlocked: 39/42
Watch or skip the credits, up to you.
I’ll let the credits play out when I’ll do the Age of Stars Endings next episode.
“NO” when prompted to Begin Journey 2
But it doesn’t matter in any case, quit game and reload your pre-ending save.
The next 3 endings are similar to the one we just did, with some cosmetic changes and different lines.
Any of these endings will also unlock the Elden Lord achievement if you haven’t unlocked it already. So whichever of these 4 endings you do first will unlock the Elden Lord trophy.
Touch Fractured Marika
“Use Mending Rune of Perfect Order”
Reload your pre-ending save.
Touch Fractured Marika
“Use Mending Rune of the Death-Prince”
Reload your pre-ending save.
Touch Fractured Marika
“Use Mending Rune of the Fell Curse”
Reload your pre-ending save.

== Frenzied Flame Ending ==
After reloading your save, warp to Cathedral of the Forsaken
Strike the altar behind the chest to reveal a secret hallway
Re-equip Brass shield and change your armor to reach Med. Load
Move up to room with lots of corpses, to the right:
  • Yellow Ember
Walk down the beam, don’t kill the zombie, instead, stand next to the tents to the left to have the merchant destroy them. Then kill the merchant.
The destroyed tents will reveal a corpse with:
  • Nomadic Merchant Armor Set
Also in this room:
  • Yellow Ember
  • 5x Grace Mimic
Stairs down, use merchant to destroy tents infront of the stairs, to access item:
  • 5x Eye of Yelough
Also in this room:
  • Yellow Ember
Walk down another beam:
  • Golden Rune [11]
Walk back on the beam, face northwest in the middle of it and drop down to the beam below, walk up to the collapsed hallway:
  • Frenzied’s Cookbook [2]
Down the beam, corpse on the right:
  • 3x Hefty Beast Bone
  • Yellow Ember
You don’t have to kill the violin playing merchant, up to you.
Check video for this next part, we have to jump on several narrow platforms with high risks of falling to death
Get back on the beam and jump to the East corner
Face North/northwest and jump
Turn around, jump
Turn arouhd, jump again to land on tombstone cover with a corpse:
  • Inescapable Frenzy
South hallway to find item near a pot:
  • Fingerprint Stone Shield (best shield in the game, can reach 100 Guard Boost when fully upgraded + Greatshield Talisman – But very high STR requirement and very heavy too)
Don’t kill the merchant sitting next to the pot. Instead, attack it with a low damage weapon (Dagger for exemple) to lure it to the opposite side of the hallway and destroy the tents. Then kill him. Destroyed tents shoudl reveal an item:
  • Note: Miquella’s Needle
Side note: This item explains us that once we’ve inherited the flame of frenzy (which we’re about to do at the bottom of this place), we can remove it by using Miquella’s Needle. Once you inherit the flame of frenzy, your character is locked onto the Frenzied Flame ending and would be unable to do the other endings (Age of Stars, Elden Lord and all its variants). Anyway, this doesn’t concern us because we’ve already done all the other endings, but in case you’re not save scumming, this info could be useful to you.
Walk around the stairs to reach the lower part of this room, then drop down to the floor, whichi will crumble and reveal a hidden level
Site of Grace: Frenzied Flame Proscription
A few steps southeast of the grace you should find Hyetta
Talk to her once
Go to the red door and remove all your equipment (Weapons, armor, talismans)
Open Door
Cut scene
Go back and talk to Hyetta
“Touch Hyetta”
Talk to Hyetta 2x
Loot item:
  • Frenzied Flame Seal
  • 5x Frenzyflame Stone
Warp to Fractured Marika
Walk to the statue and:
Become the Lord of Frenzied Flame
Achievement Unlocked: Lord of Frenzied Flame
Platinum Achievement Unlock: Elden Ring
If you’re curious about how to use Miquella’s Needle and subdue the Flame of Frenzy:
Warp to Dragonlord Placidusax
Look for Miquella’s Needle in your inventory and use it, you’ll be prompted:
Use Miquella’s Needle to tame the flame of frenzy?
Your charachter will still have the burns, but the yellow glow in the eyes will disappear. This means you are no longer under the flame of frenzy and could theoritically complete other endings.
Congratulations on unlocking all the Elden Ring Trophies and getting the “Elden Ring” Platinum Trophy.
Next Episode I’ll show you a very powerful and fun build to crush New Game+ and I’ll give you a checklist of things to get in New Game+ to really complete 100% of Elden Ring, there are a few items we couldn’t get in a single playthrough because we had to make choices on some of the quest lines.

The Fingerprint Stone Shield CRASH Build
Fingerprint Stone Shield +25
Blood Affinity
Shield Crash Ash of War
Blood reduces Physical Negation to 95% and reduces Guard Boost but it adds a lot of Blood Buildup
Shield Crash is a multi hit Ash of War so there will be a lot of Bleeding!
Cross-Naginata +25
Occult Affinity
Seppuku Ash of War
Occult scales with Arcane so a lot more Bleed buildup and damage
Seppuku adds a flat +30 Attack Power and 84 Bleed Buildup on the weapon

Shard of Alexander
Lord of Blood’s Exultation
Rotten Winged Sword Insignia
Green Turtle Talisman
Shield Crash will trigger the Rotten Winged Sword Insignia a lot
Lord of Blood’s Exultationa nd White Mask will be triggered almost all the time because we’ll bleed stuff almost every hit with either Shield Crash or Cross-Naginata regular R1 attacks
Shard of Alexander boosts Shield Crash damage
Green Turtle Talisman is nice to have while blocking all that damage with our shield
Thorny Cracked Tear
Crimsonburst Crystal Tear
Thorny Cracked Tear stacks with Rotten Winged Sword Insignia and will be triggered easily to the max with Shield Crash
Crimsoburst is nice to have health regen to get the life back we’ll lose from having only 95% Physical damage negation
Things to do before starting New Game+
  • Go to Raya Lucaria Academy in Rennala’s Room (Grace: Grand Library), Sorceress Sellen should be morphed into a ball of mage faces and there will be an item to loot next to it: Witch’s Glintstone Crown
  • Purchase all Spells from Sorceress Sellen (who will now be a giant ball of Sorcerer faces)
  • Make sure you’ve offered all your Bell Bearings to the Twin Maiden Husks, they carry over through New Game+
  • Purchase all Spells and Incantations (from Mirel and from the Twin Maiden Husks various shops)
  • Purchase all Ashes of War (from the Twin Maiden Husks, Bernahl’s Shop)
  • Purchase all the Dragon incantations from the Dragon Communion Shrine in Caelid
  • Use all 7 Wandering Mausoleums to duplicate Remembrances
  • Trade all your Remembrances at the Finger Reader Enia in Roundtable Hold or Sell Them for Runes
  • Kill Tanith and her Crucible Knight to get Aspect of the Crucible: Breath
  • Loot Tanith to get the Consort’s Set
  • Go to Shabriri at the Zamor Ruins Grace to get the Ronin’s Set
New Game+ To Do List
  • Nepheli Loux Puppet (give her Seluvis’s Potion then after Ranni kills Seluvis and Pidia, loot Pidia’s corpse and Nepheli Loux Puppet will be there)
  • Dung Eater Puppet (give her Seluvis’s Potion instead of giving it to Nepheli. But that means you’ll have to do NG+2 to ge the other Puppet)
  • Side with Jerren at the end of Sellen’s Quest Line, you’ll hear other dialogues and be rewarded with an Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone
  • Millicent’s Prosthesis – Instead of finishing her Quest Line, just kill her when you see her in Windmill Heights or at any of the locations you see her after that.

    You’ll have to do a 2nd playthrough to get the other endings and their related Trophies.
    I highly advice you double check that your save works before you finish the game.

    @Peter Thank you very much for the kind words! I highly recommend going for the platinum on FF7R, it’s so worth it! Also if you play on PS5, make sure to use synergy materia + Fire materia or Lightning Materia on Aerith as much as possible, it’s incredibly OP in the intergrade update, and I don’t mention that in my guide because it was recorded on the old version.

    Jame, incredible effort here. I don’t think I would have had the wherewithal to get the platinum without you putting things together so clearly and helpfully. Thinking about trying to (finally) beat FF7R hard mode since I see you have a guide for that too! Best wishes and see you in the DLC if not sooner.,

    Just wanted to leave my thanks for an excellent guide!

    I was bouncing off Elden Ring hard, despite being a huge fan of prior Souls games. It was just too unfocused, overwhelming. As a last ditch attempt to enjoy it, I decided to use a guide, and so stumbled on yours. And I’m so glad I did!

    Your guide was detailed where it needed to be, brief where detail wasn’t needed. It provided just enough to get you through. Having the videos as a backup reference to the text was invaluable.

    I was utterly amazed how trivial your build made the bosses. I’m generally a fairly average Souls gamer, with each boss taking me many attempts. With this setup, I had no trouble at all with anything… Melania (3 attempts), Gideon (1 attempt), Godfrey (1 attempt), Elden Beast (2 attempts). The Darkmoon Sword/Mimic Tear combination was just too powerful.

    Thanks again!

    Astonishing work, just fantastic! Thank you very much for making the guide, it was super easy, fun and enjoyable to complete the game with your help!
    The build was very good and it always felt super strong against the monsters and bosses I was fighting against and I didnt die more than around 5 times to a single boss, even the radagon+beast was like a walk in the park haha.
    Would definitely recommend this guide to anyone that wants to beat the game and leave no stone unturned, much love!

    After my initial playthrough completion, I decided to follow this guide in order to witness the whole glory of Elden Ring’s content.

    Wow, just wow… This has been the most detailed playthrough I have ever followed for any game.
    All instructions were on-point and the complementary video was extremely helpful for tough situations.

    The guide is very well thought out and the research and planning this must have undergone is exceptional.
    Great work once again!

    @Justin Congratulations on completing 100% of Elden Ring mate!

    And yes, it took me a lot of hours to do this both in written and video format, thousands of hours to be honest haha.

    Thank you for leaving a nice comment and I hope you’ll stay tuned for my future projects. 😉

    Oct 16, 2022 @ 15:13 pm

    Hey Jame,

    That’s me done too. VERY well done again. I was suitably nervous about the savegame/offline vs. online procedure in order to witness all three endings… but it worked out fine.

    It’s amazing the way you combined both video and written instructions/guides. I can only imagine how many hours you poured into this endeavour.

    Best of luck in your new ventures!!
