Fellow tarnished! Welcome to another Elden Ring guide. The Giant Crusher Build has become the talk of the show around here lately. Players wonder what’s so special about these weapons and why there’s hype. For starters, it has been almost two months since Fromsoft released Elden Ring to continue its soul series.

Key Takeaways

Recommended Stats for Giant Crusher Build

  • Vigor – (35-43)
  • Mind – (10-14)
  • Endurance – (35-42)
  • Strength – (70-85)
  • Dexterity – (12-16)
  • Intelligence – (13-16)
  • Faith – (23-25)
  • Arcane – (7-10)

For the Giant Crusher Build, you should prioritize leveling the following stats:

  1. Strength: This is the primary attribute to focus on as it directly impacts your ability to wield the massive hammer effectively and deal high damage. Aim for a minimum of 70-85 points, but ideally, keep it around 80 for optimal performance.

  2. Vigor: To increase your overall health and survivability, invest points in Vigor. While not as crucial as Strength, having a decent amount of health is essential for this build.

  3. Endurance: Enhance your stamina pool by investing in Endurance. This will allow you to perform more attacks and maintain better mobility when wielding heavy weapons and wearing heavy armor.


  1. Focus on Vigor: Prioritize leveling up Vigor because it grants an additional health bar.

  2. Survival in Boss Battles: Bosses in Elden Ring can quickly deplete your health bar, so having decent health is essential for success.

  3. Fire Resistance Boost: Vigor also enhances your fire resistance, making it a valuable attribute.

  4. Endurance for Physical Defense: Allocate points to Endurance for improving physical defense, capping it at 40.

  5. Optimal Leveling: Max out Vigor at 42; going beyond this point provides no further benefits.

  6. Points Allocation: Remember that increasing attributes beyond 30 provides significant character improvements.

  7. Consider Other Attributes: Once Vigor and Endurance are capped, allocate points to other attributes for a well-rounded character build.


Thirdly, you have Endurance which is crucial to level because of the weapon and armor you’ll be wearing. Endurance governs your Stamina, and you need a lot of Stamina to swing these bad boys for the Giant Crusher Build.

Here’s why Endurance matters:

  1. Stamina Management: The large weapons you’ll use demand a lot of Stamina to swing effectively. A high Endurance level ensures you can execute these powerful attacks without running out of Stamina too quickly.

  2. Equipment Load: Dual-wielding weapons and wearing heavy armor require a significant equipment load. Endurance helps increase your equipment load capacity, allowing you to carry and use these items effectively without suffering movement penalties.

  3. Defense: Endurance also contributes to your overall defense, making you more resilient to enemy attacks when combined with heavy armor.

Weapons for Giant Crusher Build

The weapons I bring to you in my guide will mainly comprise of eithet the Giant Crusher or the Prelate’s Inferno Crozier. You must be wondering why I added two weapons for this build. The answer is very simple; you can dual-wield both of them, and if one can’t meet the requirements, you can equip the other one.

Heavy Giant Crusher

Elden Ring Giant Crusher Build
The Giant Crusher has insane base stats and they can skyrocket if you upgrade it to +24! Dual-wielding the weapon will give you a tremendous jump in your overall damage output.

The weapon is insane, and its appearance is terrifying. It Scales S with Strength and requires a whopping 60 Strength to wield. The hammer does crazy damage; to further raise the level of damage, you need to equip it with the heavy affinity. Moreover, it works well with Crozier Hammer as a secondary weapon but does slightly less damage, so the best option is dual-wielding the same weapon. Might I add that you will be able to accomplish a 5,000 above damage with this build? The further down I go into this guide, your damage output will increase significantly. You can upgrade the Giant Crusher with Smithing Stones up to a level of +24.

With this upgrade, you can see the incredible amount of damage you can achieve. Any other weapon will do best with the build. For instance, you can carry the Commander’s Standard to deal with quick attacks. Although it scales D with Strength, you can use its pretty neat move set and a buff skill to increase damage on the Giant Crusher.

Before engaging in battle, you can trigger the Royal Knight’s Resolve on both weapons. It will enhance your damage output and give you +5,000 damage to any boss in the game. Beat bosses such as the Tree Sentinel, Flying Dragon Agheel, or Loretta with these weapons!

Prelate’s Inferno Crozier

Elden Ring Giant Crusher Build
A perfect combination to pair well with the Giant Crusher!

You can choose to equip the Giant Crusher in both hands or switch the other one with Prelate’s Inferno Crozier. However, you will get a slightly lower damage output with this combination of weapons. The best option would be to dual-wield the Giant Crusher. You can use the Weathered Blood Straight Sword weapon or literally any lightest weapon that pairs with Seppuku to increase your damage using the Blood Loss ability.

Prelate’s Inferno Crozier is a colossal weapon in Elden Ring that scales primarily with Strength. Similar to the Crusher, you want to equip it with the Affinity Heavy to increase damage. Simply face the enemy and use the heavy attack to smash your weapons towards the enemy to inflict massive damage. You can also switch to other excellent attacks of this weapon, such as the Prelate’s Charge, which allows you to dash towards the enemies while setting the hammer on fire and leaving trails of lava on the ground.

Recommended Talismans and Seals

  • Clawmark Seal
  • Great jars Arsenal
  • Claw Talisman
  • Lord of Blood’s Exultation
  • Radagon’s Soreseal
  • Ritual Sword Talisman
  • Flame, Grant me Strength!
  1. Clawmark Seal: This seal scales with Strength and Faith, allowing you to scale your incantations with Strength. It increases your character’s damage output when casting incantations.

  2. Alternative Seals: While Clawmark Seal is suitable for a Strength build, the Finger seal is unnecessary. Focus on Clawmark for improved damage.

  3. Great Jars Arsenal: This talisman increases your carrying capacity by 10%, aiding you in effectively dual-wielding your weapons.

  4. Claw Talisman: Essential for the build, it enhances jump attacks by an additional 15%. This means more than 2,000 damage, possibly exceeding 5,000, even without other perks or buffs.

  5. Flame, Grant me Strength!: An incantation that provides a 20% damage buff and also affects your fire spells. Stack effective spells and talismans for maximum damage output.

  6. Versatile Incantation: This incantation can be used with other spells you choose to equip, making it adaptable to different situations.

Raptor’s Black Feathers

Raptor's Black Feathers
The armor set comes with a unique buff that pairs so well with the Elden Ring Giant Crusher Build. You can instantly increase your jump attacks due to this armor!

Jump attacks deal incredible damage in Elden Ring, and you want to utilize the move set as much as you can. There are many ways to do that, and in contrast, the Raptor’s Black Feathers armor can give you an additional 10% damage for plunging attacks. It is a combination of both light and medium armors in Elden Ring.

You can obtain the armor and the Skeletal Mask from Sage’s Cave. Mashing all of what I have discussed in my guide, you can increase your attributes, jump attacks, and the total damage of your weapons by tenfold!


First, cast your Golden Vow and then activate Flame, Grant me Strength! use Seppuku to trigger Lord of Blood’s Exultation, dual-wield the hammers, and trigger the Royal Knight’s Reserve on the left hammer and do the same on the second. Engage the enemy with a mighty hammer of justice and watch them die instantly!

The build is overwhelming even at a base level, and you can start leveling it out early. All in all, you will have a great time messing around with this build and bully any major bosses and enemies you encounter in the game.
