Here are the best weapons, plus a very powerful Ash of War that helps players one-shot bosses in Elden Ring speedruns!

Like all FromSoftware titles, Elden Ring is a huge challenge. However, this only encourages fans to speedrun the games.

Elden Ring is even more difficult to complete quickly too, thanks to its vast open world, the Lands Between. Although, players have managed to complete Elden Ring in under 30 minutes thanks to some very powerful equipment!

So without further ado, here are the best weapons and Ash of War you need for Elden Ring speedruns!

Also, if you want to get through Elden Ring quickly, make sure you know how to get to these important locations:

Best Elden Ring Speedrun Weapons

Sword of Night and Flame

Elden Ring Sword of Night and Flame Stats

First up, the Sword of Night and Flame is on our list of the best Intelligence weapons in Elden Ring and is one of the most powerful swords in the whole game!

What makes it so good is its skill, the Night and Flame Stance. This lets you use Night Comet sorcery to deal some huge concentrated damage or a flaming sweep attack that does Fire damage to a wide area.

Here’s how to get the Sword of Night and Flame in Elden Ring if you want to pick up this boss-slaying blade!

Icerind Hatchet

Alternatively, you could pick up the Icerind Hatchet. Once again, it is the weapon skill that makes this axe insanely good for Elden Ring speedruns.

The Icerind Hatchet comes equipped with the insanely powerful Hoarfrost Stomp Ash of War that you can spam to take down any boss with ease!

Here’s where to find the Icerind Hatchet in Elden Ring – you can pick it up very early in the game!

Royal Knight’s Resolve Ash of War

Elden Ring Ash of War Royal Knight's Resolve

To complement these powerful weapons, you’ll also want to get the Royal Knight’s Resolve Ash of War. It’s reasonably strong when working as intended, but a glitch is making it insanely overpowered right now!

Elden Ring speedrunners have found that this Ash of War is insanely broken at the moment. Instead of increasing the damage of just one attack, it raises your spell and Ash of War attack damage permanently!

This almost-double damage makes the Night and Flame Stance and Hoarfrost Stomp ridiculously OP and lets you melt through bosses almost instantly.

Here’s how to get the Royal Knight’s Resolve Ash of War in Elden Ring.

How to Get Warrior Jar Shard Talisman in Elden Ring

Finally, the last piece of the puzzle for speedrunners is the Warrior Jar Shard Talisman. While it doesn’t make our list of best Talismans in Elden Ring, it is still very powerful and easy to get.

It boosts the attack power of skills, which is exactly what you need if you’ve got the Sword of Night and Flame or Icerind Hatchet.

You can get the Warrior Jar Shard by killing the Pot Boy, Iron Fist Alexander in the northern part of Stormhill. We’ve also marked this location on the map below:
