5. Broadsword

Best Confessor Weapon for Beginners

It is the starting equipment for the Confessor class. Many players never pay much attention to the weapon because it is the entry weapon for the Confessor class. But the amount of damage it deals with scaling of Strength and Dexterity is remarkable. 

Broadsword looks beautiful and holds more importance for matching the affinity with your attributes.

Why did I Choose Broadsword?

The Broadsword is readily available, offering decent damage and adaptable move sets. Its simplicity makes it a good introductory weapon for Confessor players.

Ashes of War & Skills:

  • The Broadsword comes with the Square Off Skill, enabling powerful horizontal slashes and strikes against enemies.
  • Square Off Skill allows you to clear groups of foes with ease.
  • Investing in Dexterity for weapon scaling unlocks the Bloodhound Step Skill.
  • Bloodhound Step grants a disappearing effect, enhancing your combat versatility.

If you add values to Dexterity for weapons scaling, you can also use the Bloodhound step. The main reason is that it grants a disappearing element that allows you to vanish and move forward with a strike on the opponent. 

  • Starting equipment.
  • Square Off Skill: Unleashes potent slashes.
  • Unlocks the Bloodhound Step Skill for increased versatility.

  • Limited availability of skills.
  • Lacks unique effects.

4. Winged Scythe

Best Confessor Weapon for Holy Damage.

Regarding the most unique and magical weapon in the Elden Ring, the Winged Scythe is never an exception. It is a magic weapon that deals with holy damage and protects from it. It is one of the best Confessor weapons in Elden Ring because of its scale with Strength, Dexterity, and Faith.

Since you will add more attribute values to these stats in your character, you will also gain boosts in holy damage and different Skills to pave the gameplay. 

Why did I Choose Winged Scythe?

The Winged Scythe is distinctive due to its holy damage and bleed effect. Its versatility and scaling with multiple attributes make it a strong choice for Confessor builds.

Unfortunately, this weapon does not merge with the Ash of War, thus limiting players to buffing the magic attacks. But what it lacks in the Ash of War makes up for the unique effects of passive bleed buildup. 

Intelligence -

Winged Scythe Stats Table.

  1. First, you will have to come to the Church of Pilgrimage to acquire this weapon.
  2. Here you will be able to go to Tombsward Ruins. Here, you will see an entrance to the basement.
  3. Beware of the lurking enemies, as this basement has a lot of strong enemies that will be hostile.
  4. Go straight into the basement, and you will find an item, Winged Scythe, to claim for yourself. 

  • Inflicts Holy Damage.
  • Causes passive bleed buildup on enemies.
  • Offers both light and heavy attack variations.

  • Reduces magic enhancement.
  • Limited Elemental Diversity.

3. Coded Sword

Best Confessor Straightsword.

Another unique weapon for holy damage is the Coded Sword. It is also a Straight Sword that will deal holy damage to enemies. Although, it might not be the primary weapon for the Faith Confessor characters. But the shield repels the effect of the Coded Sword, which is worthy of attention. 

  • Holy Damage: 85 (scales with Faith)
  • Critical Damage: 100
  • Unblockable Blade Skills can be added, allowing damage even when the enemy blocks.
  • It is not infusible with Ashes of War and does not affect Consumables items.

Coded Sword

Why did I Choose Coded Sword?

The Coded Sword is unique with its shield repel effect, making it effective against shielded enemies. Its high critical damage potential also makes it a solid choice.

To push that further, you can also add Unblockable Blade Skills. It grants a unique effect that will allow your Coded Sword to register damage despite the block from the enemy.

Getting this weapon is also easy for early-level players.

  1. You must go to Lyndall, Royal Capital, to find a lost and abandoned Horse Stable.
  2. Climb on it to reach the top of the building, which will let you gain access to the broken round table.
  3. In the same room, you will find a broken door.
  4. Opening it will allow you to acquire an item from the room that will be only mighty Coded Sword.
  5. This is an easy process to avoid confrontation with the enemies and bosses as you will encounter a Tree Sentinel to ruin your progress. 

  • Inflicts holy damage and repels shields.
  • Offers high critical damage.

  • Not compatible with Ashes of War.
  • Few options for skill customization.

2. Rogier’s Rapier

Best Critical Damage Scaling Weapon.

This thrusting sword comes with Strength and Dexterity scaling, enabling players to achieve 93 Physical Damage. The cherry on top is that it also adds 110 Critical Damage to end the worst enemies at the last moments. 

Acquiring the sword involves a story progression until you reach Sorcerer’s Rogier in Roundtable Hold. If you have not met him yet, I advise you to speak with him to get the first quest. To avoid the spoilers, you might have to complete his quest to allow him to reward you with Rogier’s Rapier sword. 

Why did I Choose Rogier’s Rapier?

Rogier’s Rapier offers flexibility with its scaling and infusion options. Despite its lower base damage, its customization potential makes it valuable.

Rogier’s Rapier can infuse with the Ashes of War even with the highest amount of scaling.

Skills for Rogier’s Rapier:

  1. Repeating Thrust:
    • Smoothes gameplay against tough enemies.
    • Grants a unique attack pattern with multiple thrusts.
    • Obtained by defeating the Night’s Cavalry.
  2. Glintblade Phalanx:
    • Adds sorcery to the weapon.
    • Casts five magical Glintblades around your character’s head.
    • Releasing these blades disrupts enemy stances and may result in Critical Strikes.
    • Easily obtained to enhance Rogier’s Rapier’s capabilities.

  • Enables high physical and critical damage.
  • Allows for additional magic or abilities infusion.
  • Customizable skills.

  • Requires story progression.
  • Relatively Low Base damage.

1. Uchigatana

Best Confessor Katana.

Lastly, Uchigatana is known among the best Confessor weapons, with stats entirely off the charts. As a Katana, Uchigatana offers to slice and pierce damage, yielding 115 physical damages and 100 for critical damage. 

Why did I Choose Uchigatana?

Uchigatana excels in physical damage output, making it a potent secondary weapon for Confessor builds. Its scaling and infusion compatibility add to its appeal.

Elden Ring Uchigatana
  1. As for the location, you must visit Deathtouched Catacombs, northeast of the Warmaster’s Shack.
  2. Go all the way to the backway hall of the location.
  3. If the door is locked, you must pull the lever on the other side to open the door.
  4. You will also be searching for a corpse hanging on the ledge. Looting the corpse will give you a Uchigatana katana. 
Physical Damage115
Critical Damage100

Uchigatana Stats Table.

Once again, this weapon grants a passive Blood Loss Buildup effect. I strongly recommend infusing it with Ash of War to remove or add different Skills and Incantations to the unique sword.

It also comes with a default skill known as Unsheathe. This enables players to build a composed weapon stance on the back and swiftly slash the weapon. 

  • Offers considerable physical damage output.
  • Strength & Dexterity Scaling.
  • It can be infused with Ashes of War for customization.

  • No Faith Scaling.
  • It might not be suitable for every combat scenario.

Why Others Were Not Chosen?

  1. Sword of Night And Flame: Elemental focus limits versatility.
  2. Lazuli Glintstone Sword: Leans towards magical playstyle.
  3. Carian Knight’s Sword: Strength scaling focus not ideal for hybrid playstyle.
  4. Ornamental Straight Sword: Lacks unique effects or advantages.
  5. Miquellan Knight’s Sword: Strength scaling may not suit hybrid playstyle.
  6. Regalia of Eochaid: Specific build focus doesn’t align with versatility in playstyle.
  7. Lordsworn’s Straight Sword: Excluded for lacking clear advantages compared to chosen weapons.
  8. Rotten Crystal Sword: Specializes in toxic damage, not ideal for the versatile hybrid playstyle.

What Would I Recommend?

Starting with the Broadsword is ideal for budding Confessor players. Its balanced mix of damage and adaptable moves, including the Square Off Skill and Bloodhound Step, offers versatility in combat. 

Additionally, the Uchigatana stands out as a potent secondary choice, especially for those prioritizing melee might. With its emphasis on Strength and Dexterity scaling, this sword delivers formidable physical damage.

These two swords, the Broadsword and Uchigatana, form a dynamic duo, granting the Confessor the flexibility to adapt to various combat situations, whether aiming for balanced versatility or sheer melee force.
