Top 3 Elden Ring PvP Meta Builds to Win Every Duel

Winning every PvP duel in Elden Ring is easy when you’ve got the right meta build equipped!

Elden Ring allows players to enjoy a pretty robust PvP system. Aside from all the secrets the game offers, you can still have fun dueling other players after all the stones have been turned.

However, PvP can be pretty hard to master. Your build must fit your playstyle perfectly, and your skills should be on the spot to win a duel.

To master Elden Ring’s PvP, equipping meta builds and tuning them out yourself for optimal results is a must!

Top 3 Elden Ring Meta Colosseum Builds

The top 3 Elden Ring Meta Colosseum Builds include:

  • Shinobi Build – Blood Loss Strategy
  • Frostfire Knight Build – Quick Consecutive Frostbite Strategy
  • Glintstone Witch Build – Perfect for INT Spell Casters

Before proceeding with one of these builds, remember that it must suit your personal playstyle.

For this reason, it is recommended that you equip these Elden Ring PvP meta builds and modify them as needed to fit your needs.

3. Shinobi Build – Blood Loss Strategy

This build requires precise movements. Nevertheless, this build is unstoppable once you master the fast pace, the combinations of the Rivers of Blood katana with the Bloodhounds Step Ash of War!

This is the equipment you need for this Elden Ring PvP meta build:

For armor, you can wear any of your likings. However, keep in mind this build requires close proximity during combat, so pick an armor that is as robust as possible.

At a 210 level, these are the attribute distribution for the Shinobi build. Nonetheless, remember you can do some tweaking to make it work at level 120.

  • Vigor – 65
  • Mind – 45
  • Endurance – 40
  • Strength – 21
  • Dexterity – 48
  • Intelligence – 15
  • Faith – 20
  • Arcane – 75

After Update 1.06, this build remains effective. However, it will now take players more strategy to defeat their opponents due to the nerf both Rivers of Blood and the Bloodhound Step Ash received:

  • Rivers of Blood
    • Corpse Piler – Decreased damage and bleed build-up when hit with the blood attack, slight damage decrease when hit with blade
  • Bloodhound Step Ash
    • Reduced performance when used continuously
    • Increased travel distance when on light equip load
