Elden Ring: Best Comet Azur Build [2024]

I have more than 180+ hours invested in Elden Ring, and I can share my experience for a good Comet Azur build.

Maaz has played Elden Ring for 180+ hours, so you can easily trust him with the information and insights he shares about the comet azur build.

The Comet Azur Build is a broken build, allowing you to spam the attacks on most bosses (not all bosses, as some have too much mobility for this to work properly). The first part is the Flask of Wondrous Physik, which allows for infinite FP, meaning an unlimited laser beam while the effects last.

Next, I use the weapons, in this case, staff, that offer the most maximized damage output for the Comet Azur.

Key Takeaways

  • Equipment:
    • Flask of Wondrous Physik: Provides unlimited FP for a duration and enhances Comet Azur spam for 15 seconds.
    • Lusat’s Glintstone Staff: Increases FP cost by 50% for stronger sorceries.
    • Meteorite Staff: Boosts gravity-based sorceries with 30% extra damage.
    • Azur Glintstone Set (Armor): Crown grants 15% bonus spell damage, benefiting Comet Azur.
  • Spell Requirements:
    • Comet Azur Spell: Requires 60 Intelligence points to cast.
  • Accessories:
    • Marika’s Soreseal Talisman: Helps reach 60 Intelligence points.
    • Graven-mass Talisman: Increases sorcery damage by 8%.
    • Radagon Icon: Reduces spell cast time for quicker casting.

The secondary weapon is simply so that the user has another option except for the incredibly high mana cost option; that’s where the Meteorite Staff comes into play, being cheap and effective in terms of FP costs. Then I have the armor that helps facilitate damage output and fits the theme I am going for with the build.

Best Build for Overwhelming Magical Prowess and Raw Destructive Force.

Why did I Choose Comet Azur?

I chose the Comet Azur Build because it offers a unique and powerful playstyle centered around sorcery damage. The combination of the Flask of Wondrous Physik, Lusat’s Glintstone Staff, Meteorite Staff, Azur Glintstone Set, Marika’s Soreseal Talisman, and Radagon Icon creates a synergistic build that maximizes the potential of the Comet Azur spell. This build caters to players who enjoy dealing massive damage from a distance and are willing to invest in the Intelligence attribute.

Combining the Cerulean Hidden Tear and the Magic-Shrouding Cracked Tear will create the best flask with the Comet Azur Build. The hidden tear eliminates all FP costs for 15 seconds, while the cracked tear increases magic damage by a flat 20% for 3 minutes.

The combination of these two helps to emphasize the glass cannon nature of the build while also giving the user infinite FP to use and abuse the Comet Azur for at least 15 seconds of uninterrupted burst damage.

Weapons

Lusat’s Glintstone Staff

An integral part of the build. The Lusat’s Glintstone Staff is the primary key to the Elden Ring Comet Azur Build. The staff has a rather plain-looking exterior, not indicating much, but the head of the staff is a different story.

The head is like a broken crystal geode, containing powerful magical crystals of varying lengths and sizes. Each one shimmering with a unique magical glow to them.

The unique part of the staff is not its weapon skill; it has none, but rather the passive effect it applies for sorceries, which is the main focus of why I am using it. The passive effect is a 50% increased FP cost for any sorceries in exchange for more powerful sorceries.

Located in Eastern Caelid is Sellia, Town of Sorcery. Lusat’s Glintstone Staff can be found in a chest after defeating the Nox Swordstress and Nox Priest boss.

Things to note about them is that this is a duo boss, so you will be fighting both of them at the same time, which is why I recommend either good AoE damaging weapons or high damage single target weapons to get the fight over with as quickly as possible.

Meteorite Staff

I have talked about the Meteorite Staff many times, and you may have even seen the weapon in other builds and tier lists. Well, there is a reason for that, the reason being it’s simply a very good staff.

It has S scaling for Intelligence, which automatically gives it high damage output. Something else about the weapon is it has enhanced damage for gravity-based sorceries by 30%, quite a significant margin when it comes to a soulsborne game.

While the weapon may not have a unique skill to its name, it makes up for that fact with the amazing stats it boasts regarding raw power.

It can be found relatively early in the Caelid Swamps near Sellia Crystal Tunnel. Keep exploring this area, and you will eventually come across an area called the Street of Sages Ruins. Look around here, and you will see a corpse hanging from a window, having on it the Meteorite Staff.

The whole build doesn’t work without it, so let’s get right into it. You have probably seen the Sword of Night and Flame build, but now we have reached the point of no return. It’s not just an energy blast, but rather it’s more reminiscent of a Kamehameha from the popular franchise DragonBall.

It fires tremendous energy at the desired target, instantly vaporizing them from the plane of existence. The sorcery requires a whopping 60 Intelligence points, which makes sense based on the destruction you will cause after using this spell. 

Now that you are invested in the spell, it’s time to go and get it. You must journey to the volcanic region of Mt. Gelmir, located west of the Altus Plateau.

Once there, journey to the Hermit Village and travel northeast, along the cliffside, you will find the body of Sorcerer Azur. Stare deeply into the body; you should be given the Comet Azur spell.

Rock Sling

The gist of the spell is making three pieces of rocks from the ground levitate and fling them towards an enemy. Hitting an enemy enough times can also stagger them, which opens the options of combat from just ranged to a hybrid of melee and ranged, with Rock Sling used to set up staggers and then perform a critical strike on the enemy.

The Rock Sling sorcery is buried in a cellar on the north side of the Street of Sages Ruins. It is also where you find the Meteorite Staff, as mentioned earlier.

Azur Glintstone Stats Table.

The Azur Glintstone Crown gives 15% extra damage to spells such as Comet Azur. Since our build is about maximizing damage, we can’t skip out on anything that might help, and a flat 15% damage increase is nothing to scoff at by any means.

The rest of the set does not have any bonus effects; rather, it’s more thematically fitting to the aesthetic we are trying to go for. This all-powerful sorcerer supreme evaporates enemies with his ultimate spell.

But the real tough part is obtaining the Azur Glintstone armor set. To get a hold of it, you must complete the entirety of Sorceress Sellen’s Questline.

Now, this particular questline is quite long and will take some time to complete, so to avoid boring you to death, I will move on and not spoil anything from the questline if you want to experience it firsthand.

Marika’s Sorseal Stats table. 

It is a good talisman if you don’t want to grind the last five levels to reach 60 Intelligence. It helps out by giving you a buff instantly, and even if you have the required Intelligence, you can simply slap this guy on your build to get even better stats simply because of the scaling of the Lusat’s Glintstone Staff.

It also increases the damage received by 15%, quite a big number, but then again, it is a glass cannon build, so that much is fine.

Graven-Mass Talisman

Now we know that the whole point of the build is damage, especially sorcery damage. So what better way to amplify that damage than to add a flat 8% increase in sorcery damage.

The talisman itself looks like the amalgamation of the faces of scholars who tried to master their power but failed and were eventually consumed by the power, being added to the orb.

Pros & Cons For Azur Build

  • High Damage Output.
  • Flask of Wondrous Physik provides unlimited FP.
  • Lusat’s Glintstone Staff increases FP cost by 50% for stronger sorceries.
  • Meteorite Staff boosts gravity-based sorceries with 30% extra damage.
  • Azur Glintstone Set grants a 15% bonus spell damage.
  • Radagon Icon reduces spell cast time for quicker casting.

  • The Glass Cannon Build sacrifices defense.
  • The Comet Azur spell requires a high Intelligence of 60 points to cast.
  • The build may lack mobility options.

Why Others Were Not Chosen?

  • Magic Scorpion Charm: Excluded for lacking synergy with the core focus on sorcery damage.

  • Hidden Cerulean Tear: Doesn’t align with the primary strategy for maximizing Comet Azur damage.

  • Primal Glintstone Blade: Incompatible with the build’s emphasis on sorcery, as it is a melee-focused choice.

  • Terra Magica: Doesn’t contribute to the primary goal of enhancing sorcery efficiency and damage output.

My Recommendations For Azur Build

For an unstoppable wave of magical destruction, I would recommend the Flask of Wondrous Physik, Lusat’s Glintstone Staff, and the Meteorite Staff, it ensures non-stop Comet Azur attacks, establishing a great force on the battlefield. The Azur Glintstone Set, especially the crown, further enhances Comet Azur’s might, complemented by Marika’s Soreseal Talisman for immediate intelligence boosts and the Radagon Icon aiding swift spellcasting in crucial moments. This build caters to players aiming for overwhelming magical prowess and raw destructive force.
