ELDEN RING – Guide to Buffs

Quick guide to all weapon/incantation/sorcery/consumable and miscellaneous buffs your character can gain.

Intro

To make things easier to explain, buffs separate into a handful of categories. Here are the most important ones:

  • Body Buffs
  • Aura Buffs
  • Weapon Buffs
  • Regeneration Buffs
  • Unique Buffs

When stacking buffs, take in mind you can only have: 1 active Body buff, 1 active Aura buff, 1 active Weapon buff on each weapon wielded, 1 Regeneration buff. Unique buffs do not overwrite each other, meaning you can stack as many of them as you’d like!
