How to dodge faster in Elden Ring, how to increase your i-frames, explained

Keep The Tarnished nimble.

Elden Ring is the latest title by FromSoftware, a developer notorious for its challenging games. In each of these games, the ability to evade incoming attacks can mean the difference between life and death. One of the best ways to avoid attacks is by dodging. Depending on how your character's gear encumbers you, you'll be able to roll away from attacks more efficiently.

There are three types of rolls in Elden Ring, and which one you get depends on your character's equipment load. The higher your equipment load, the less effective your toll will be. The most beneficial roll in the game with the highest I-frames is the Light Roll, which is only available to those with a modest Equipment Load.

We've listed the effects Equipment load has on character rolls and each type of roll below:

Roll TypeEquipment Load
Light RollEquipment Load lower than 30%
Medium RollEquipment Load from 30% to 70%
Heavy RollEquipment Load at 70% to 100%
No RollEquipment Load above 100%

Those looking to raise their equipment load in Elden Ring would do well to put stat points into the Endurance tree, as this directly impacts how much weight The Tarnished can handle.
