Elden Ring: How To Create The Best Strength And Faith Build? - Star Sentinel

Seriously, Star Sentinel build is unstoppable while we’re in full tank mode with super high Magic Damage Negation and Poise.

We’re trying to maintain power, we’re constantly recovering, and we have a good chance of having dual Great Stars and high Affinities with our attacks. Not only do we have abilities like Godslayer’s Seal, Prayerful Strike Ash Of War, and Blessing of the Erdtree. We also have gear like Talisman and Bull-Goat Set.

The most important thing is that players can make this build when they first start the game, the threshold is very low. We also have optional defensive Incantations against different bosses. Here I’ll show you the build from all sides.

The Gear

Let’s start by taking a deeper look at gear and settings. Our weapon of choice is dual Great Stars plus 25 stars with high Affinities, Prayerful Strike Ash Of War, and our off-hand.


Plus, we have Godslayer’s Seal plus 25 Incantations. Since Great Hammers in patch 1.09 added speed range recovery time and stat scaling, you can get two great Great Stars weapons in Altus Plateau.

Of these, one comes from a chest on the guarded Carriages on the map, and the other can only be dropped by defeating Magnus The Beast Claw.

On the map, players can find heavy Affinity’s Iron Whetblade in the armory at Stormveil Castle. The invisible Teardrop Scarab and Prayerful Strike Ash Of War drop under the short rock tunnel after unlocking Stonesword Key. Leyndell Royal Capital armor and Talisman at the west entrance make us stronger.

We have a Bull-Goat Set which makes us a full-fledged tank with super high Poise. You can find Talisman by killing Great Horned Tragoth in Volcano Manor dungeon.

We’ll still have some variation depending on the situation. But we’ll start by finding Bull-Goat’s Talisman, which reduces Poise’s damage. We think it’s great in combination with our super high Poise. Also, you can get Bull-Goat’s Talisman from behind Dragonbarrow Cave at the entrance.

Next, we have Great-Jar’s Arsenal, which is increasing our gear loadout so we can maintain our medium roll speed. From it you can earn Great-Jar’s Arsenal as a reward for completing Great Challenge of defeating three NPC duelists in Dragonbarrow to the north.

Then we have 2 Erdtree’s Favor plus two that can improve my our Health, Dragoncrest Greatshield Talisman of Stamina. This greatly improves our Damage Negation.

We find an enclosed area from Ashen Capital to the left of Forbidden Lands. And Greatshield Talisman is located in Miquella’s Haligtree. It’s on a chest on an elevated platform inside the enormous building to the northeast, guarded by several monsters.


We’ll look at the same strategy later with Incantations. And Old Lord’s Talisman is also another option that can be toggled in Flask of Wondrous Physick for a longer duration buff.

For even more damage offset, you might also consider one of Crystal Tears. We have Bloodflame Blade, which you can find on Scarab near Rose Church in Liunia of Lakes. You also get Blessing of the Erdtree, which heals us well over time. We can find this in Queen’s Bedchambers in Leyndell Royal Capital.

Then we have a series of Damage Negation Incantations. We can choose Black Flame’s Protection depending on what we’re fighting, greatly improving our physical defenses.

Next we have Barrier of Gold, which greatly increases our magic defense. We can find this at Royal Capital after fighting Shade of Godfrey. Finally, Black Flame’s Protection greatly increases our fire resistance. These defensive attacks and healing Incantations all help a lot with our builds.

Stat Spread

Next, let’s look at the statistics. Then we can get into the fight and see how all the gear mentioned above works for us. I started with Hero Class and our goal is to maximize Strength.

This build is Faith 60 points, Endurance 46 points, Strength 80 points, Dexterity 12 points. So with all of that in place, we’re now breaking the mold. Next, let’s talk about our Star Sentinel battle.

We start by optimizing our Blessing Of The Erdtree with Golden Vow and whatever defensive spell works best for the situation. We can use Flask of Wondrous Physick, restore FP and turn on Bloodflame Blade.

Then we switch to our dual Great Stars. We could easily trade with most bosses, and not only did Great Stars heal us and hit enemies, but they did blood damage. So, there’s no doubt that Star Sentinel is an unstoppable powerful building.

Final Thoughts

If you also have a Star Sentinel, I’d love to hear how you tweak this build. Also, I still recommend that you take advantage of Elden Ring Runes to get some suitable gear when creating this build. Trust me, this will definitely make your build stronger. Don’t forget that you can also get a 5% discount in IGGM.com with the code “CSCCA”. Come and try it out!
