Basically, we’ll farm everything, every Golden Rune, material 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 simple, efficient 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 included, but 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.

Corpse on the right:

Open double doors, move up and get killed by Grafted Scion

Note: it is possible to kill this scion now, but it’s very difficult and not worth the trouble. We’ll be back here much later to get our revenge.

Cut scene

  • 1x Flask of Cerulean Tears

Jump down the hole to the right

Move up, Site of Grace: Cave of Knowledge

Rest at site of grace

Do the Tutorial area. Check video if you want to see my basic combat tips:

Unsheathe is an amazing Ash of War

Use Jump Attacks vs Shield enemies to break their posture and get a critical

Stealthing and backstabs

Spacing, letting enemies swing first, backstabbing

Parrying – Great when it works, but requires perfect timing and knowing the enemy’s movesets – So we’ll rarely use it in this guide, we’ll rely on much safer mechanics

Note: These Ruin Fragments are crafting materials (similar to plants) respawn everytime you rest at a grace, so most of the time I won’t mention them or list them in the item checklist. Just grab them on your way whenever you see them.

Go left around the big camp until you reach Site of Grace: Gatefront

Open inventory and use our keepsake: Lands Between Rune

Also use Golden Rune [2] we just picked up


Rest at the grace to trigger a cut scene to meet Melina:

    Whoo my IP is approved. Crazy that you’re still making guides mate; I used your Alliance leveling guide all the way back in vanilla WoW.

    One quick suggestion for you — can you add a table of contents with links to each episode for quick navigation at the top of the page? With each entry of a video, time stamps, and text walk through, it gets longer and longer to scroll down the page every time haha.

    @Jame I can see in the youtube playlist there’s two hidden videos, just wondering when the plan is for them to go live? I couldnt find the silver scarab at the end of episode 4 and then i’m ready for 5!

    @RSBennett It’s the real thing, just pasted it there from my note, I’ll edit it for better readability later tonight.

    Is the text guide for episode 4 meant to be there? Happy to play more but if it’s an unfinished placeholder that went live by accident I’ll hold off

    @Loranger EP02 is out. I’m going for Daily Uploads, each episode takes so much time I can’t do more unless this becomes my full time job 😉

    So what are you thinking Jame? I know you said before you were hoping for daily episodes on this one but I get that it’s gonna be a lot of work. Is daily still seeming doable or should I stop checking every hour? 😂

    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.
