Elden Ring is the latest addition to the Soulsborne lineup of games. It comes to us from the creative minds behind the Dark Souls series, collaborating with world-famous author George R. R. Martin. Elden Ring is a departure from the traditional souls game with a more heavy fantasy setting. It allows FromSoft to flex its creative muscles more than previous titles due to the sheer scale and scope of the game. This includes the absolute broken mess that is magic, specifically the Elden Ring Comet Azur Build.
Now we don’t know what the developers at FromSoft were thinking when they allowed this quite frankly insane combination a possibility. Be that as it may, we now have an unfair almost hack level of damage to defeat bosses.
What is the Elden Ring Comet Azur Build?
The Elden Ring Comet Azur Build is actually a broken build. You can spam the build 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, we use the weapons, in this case, staff that offers the most maximized damage output for the Comet Azur in particular. 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 we have the armor which also helps facilitate damage output and fits the whole theme we are going for with the Elden Ring Comet Azur Build.
Flask of Wondrous Physik
Combining the Cerulean Hidden Tear and the Magic-Shrouding Cracked Tear will create the best flask to use 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.
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 actually has none, but rather the passive effect it applies for sorceries which is the main focus of why we are 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 we recommend either good AoE damaging weapons or high damage single target weapons to get the fight over with as quickly as possible.
We have talked about the Meteorite Staff on many occasions, 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 in terms of raw power.
It can be found relatively early in the Caelid Swamps near Sellia Crystal Tunnel. Keep exploring around 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.
Another main component of the Elden Ring Comet Azur Build. The whole build doesn’t really work without it so let’s get right into it. You have probably seen the Sword of Night and Flame build but now we reach 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 a tremendous amount of 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 amount of destruction you will cause after using this spell.
Now that you are invested in the spell itself, 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, there along the cliffside you will find the body of Sorcerer Azur. Stare deeply into the body and you should be given the Comet Azur spell.
Welcome to the team Rock Sling, the most used spell in all Elden Ring. It’s used by everyone from newbies to veterans and all the ones in between. A solid spell that is effective at any stage of the game and compatible with almost any build due to the low requirements for equipping and using it. The gist of the spell is basically 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.
Now you may be wondering where you can get your hands on this spell. So let’s get into the specifics. You can find the Rock Sling sorcery buried in a cellar, located on the Northside of the Street of Sages Ruins. It is also in the same place you find the Meteorite Staff as mentioned earlier.
Azur Glintstone Set
Finally, we arrive at the armor set we will be using for the Elden Ring Comet Azur Build, and what better set to use than the set of the canonical creator of Comet Azur himself. Now we realize that it’s quite an outfit to rock but there are legitimate gameplay reasons for wearing this armor too. 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 but rather it’s more thematically fitting to the aesthetic that we are trying to go for, an all-powerful sorcerer supreme who 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 have to complete the entirety of Sorceress Sellen’s Questline. Now, this particular questline is quite long and will take some time to complete, so for the sake of not boring you to death, we will move on and not spoil anything from the questline in case you want to experience it for yourself firsthand.
A good talisman if you don’t want to grind the last 5 levels to reach 60 Intelligence. Really helps out by giving you a buff instantly and even if you have the required Intelligence then 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. However, 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.
Now we know that the whole point of the build is damage, especially sorcery damage. So what better way to amplify that damage than add a flat 8% increase in sorcery damage. Quite a steal for simply exploring the area to find this talisman. 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.
We all know the feeling of being one hit away from death, the boss is almost down for the count and you charge up your last spell. As you charge up your final blast to end the boss it leaps at you and you die. You were 1 second away from beating the boss and if only you could cast your spells just a few seconds quicker. That’s where this talisman comes in, it reduces cast times by emulating 30 dexterity points. Quite the addicting effect once you get used to it.
