Best PvP Colosseum Builds in Elden Ring

Enter the colosseum the right way!

The free colosseums update has launched in Elden Ring. This update adds the three colosseums in the Lands Between as PvP arenas for players to test their skills. There are multiple combat formats for players to test their skills in. Here is the best PvP colosseum builds in Elden Ring.

3 - Blasphemous Brawler

The Blasphemous Brawler is a melee brawler build that uses bestial Incantations and the Blasphemous Blade to deal fire and physical damage. The Taker's Flames Ash Of War deals fire damage in a line in front of you and will win you duels as long as you can land it once. Beast Claw speed to cast is a great pairing to a slow Ash of War like Taker's Flame and can catch enemies after rolls or attacks. Flame, Grant Me Strength will further increase your physical and fire damage, while Bestial Vitality can give some HP regen during Duels where you cannot heal.

  • Secondary Stat: Mind, Endurance.
  • Weapons: Blasphemous Blade, Clawmark Seal.
  • Shield: No Shield.
  • Armor: Scaled Armor.

The Sorcer builds wants to avoid close-ranged combat as much as possible while relying on enemy-seeking spells such as Stars of Ruin and Ancient Death Rancor.
