Elden Ring: Elon Musk Build Has Players Questioning His Genius

Elon Musk revealed his Elden Ring build earlier this week, and it has many players questioning his genius. He has some interesting equipment choices, to say the least.

Elden Ring can be a punishing adventure for that ill-equipped. It features some of FromSoftware’s best boss design and throws it into their first open-world game.

Players will be able to adventure through the plains of Limgrave to the snowy plains of the Mountaintop of the Giants. Along the way, they will need to fight grand battles against dragons, Those Who Live in Death, and Demi-Gods.

Now, Elon Musk, one of the most successful billionaires on the planet and founder of Tesla, has revealed the build he uses to travel the Lands Between.

And let’s just say that it has many players questioning his genius.

Defeating a Demi-God in Elden Ring will reward you with a Remembrance that you can only use once to acquire a special item. You can duplicate them a few times, but not all of them will be worth the struggle.

How to Use Elon Musk Build in Elden Ring

Elon Musk’s Build in Elden Ring is considered a Level 111 Mage and trades in mobility for greater defensive and power. But it does seem a bit over-cumbered and will not fit the playstyle of many players.

Elon Musk took to Twitter recently to discuss his emotions regarding FromSoftware’s Elden Ring. He defines Elden Ring as “the most beautiful art” he’s ever seen. He also explains that his build is a “power mage but decent with swords/katana.”

And just a few days ago, he revealed a photo where he showcased his complete build and stats. Players were confused. Elon Musk’s build featured two shields, two swords, a staff, and practically no mobility.

With his build, players will barely be able to roll and will need to alternate between spells and sword/shield combo.

Elon Musk’s build uses Hidetaka Miyazaki’s favorite boss’s armor. Finding out who it is might surprise you!

Elon Musk Complete Build

Here is Elon Musk’s build:

And if you aren’t a fan of those talismans then there are plenty of other talismans that will give you equally if not better effects as well.

His Spirit Ashes include Skeletal Militiaman Ashes, Marionette Soldier Ashes, and Banished Knight Oleg. While the spells he has equipped are Zamor Ice Storm, Night Comet, Magic Glintblade, Comet, and Loretta’s Greatbow.

Elon Musk Equipment

Banished Knight Oleg is one of Radahn’s strongest soldiers, and one of Elden Ring’s strongest Spirit Ashes. But obtaining it won’t be easy.

Here is how Elon Musk distributes his attribute levels:

  • Vigor: 31
  • Mind: 38
  • Endurance: 23
  • Strength: 16
  • Dexterity: 25
  • Intelligence: 68
  • Faith: 6
  • Arcane: 9

This leaves him with 1009 HP, 221 FP, and 107 Stamina. But what is truly alarming is his Equip Load, which is 67.2/68.8. This means that his mobility is minimal, and his roll is at its weakest. But overall, it’s not a terrible build.

With different armor and a more significant focus on mobility, this would be a build that could go up against even Malenia, Blade of Miquella. The Moonveil and Lusat’s Glinstone Staff make for a potent and capable mage.

Having issues defeating Malenia? There’s a player that has beat her over 1000 times and goes around helping other players! Get to know “Let Me Solo Her“.

Despite this, players are having trouble understanding why he would need two different shields.

But if Elon Musk is looking to change up his playstyle anytime soon, the Frostbite Mage Build might be a fun upgrade from what he currently has.

And if he’s looking to switch over to Faith any time soon, then he might need to get one of the best Sacred Seals in the game.

Honestly not a bad build. Sure, most of us cringe at the weight, but there are plenty whom use the heavy roll and play absolutely fine. Also, the Carian Knight Shield is wonderful against phys, mag, and holy. The Brass Shield is phys, mag, fire. So he may just be covering all his bases. I myself run the spiralhorne shield and the brass Shield together

He also doesn't have crimson flasks nor cerulean flasks

Elon Musk is no genius, he is one of the greatest con-men in the history of the world. Using Twitter and NDA's he has used tesla to scam city after city, state after state out of billions while also fleecing investors as well. When tesla falls it will be greater than Enron, Worldcom and Tyco combined. His intelligence is average but his smarts are off the charts.

Horrible build with horrible attribute allocations.

@Clayton, I'm gonna go on a limb and say you have NEVER played a souls game. He has built a full on dex mage. His stat allocation, as such, is actually almost perfect. The ONLY thing that needs changing is health.

He says equip load will be lower if fast roll is needed right there in his tweet. I think he is just showing weapons and loadout all equipped to show it in a single screen shot. Also with jumping, rolling isn't the most important thing any more.
