Elden Ring Best Tank Build Guide

In general, tank builds are among the greatest strength builds in Elden Ring and among the most entertaining in ng+ and higher. The tanky character might seem monotonous, but the ability to simply push past any obstacle can be a lot of fun. Additionally, the ability to effortlessly stagger without being attacked makes such builds incredibly effective in Elden Ring's PvP.

Top 3 Best Elden Ring Tank Builds

Now that you know the basic requirements to create a powerful tank build, let's share the best 5 tank builds and list the basic setup for each character for your reference.

Top 1 - Unstoppable Juggernaut Melee Tank Build

This build is designed to be absolutely unstoppable, you have a ton of protection, can soak up hits like it's nobody's business, and constantly regen health, making you an absolutely unstoppable killing machine. It is primarily meant to be played as a melee tank build although it does have a little bit of a ranged option in the form of swarm of flies. Obviously, you could swap out whatever you want to swap out for whatever ranged ability you want to swap out, but this one initiates bleed and disrupts the target allowing you to get close to it and close the gap just lay waste to it. This build is designed to be a total boss destroyer, you just tank hits and constantly just mow down the boss continuously swinging your giant mace or blade whichever weapon you decide to go with because you have an option of two, or you can swap back and forth between the two as you want. Because we make use of multiple spells, perfumes, heavy armor, and the bloodhounds step ash of war, we have a lot of maneuverability and can take a ton of punishment and just keep on swinging.

Top 2 - God-Tier Strength/Faith Healer Tank Build

It's obviously no surprise here but we are wielding the blasphemous blade - one of the best weapons in Elden Ring, definitely on par with the moonblade katana and the rivers of blood. There are many faith weapons you can use on your faith builds but nothing compares to the utter destruction that the blasphemous blade brings to, any opponent in this game whether it's a low-level enemy or even one of the hardest bosses in the game literally stood no chance.  This faith build has the best defense and the best offense, and is one of the most simplistic approaches ever making this one of the best faith builds in Elden Ring.

Top 3 - God-Tier Int/Strength Tank Build

Using this build has made this Elden Ring play through one of the most effortless painless easiest playthroughs we've ever had so far. When you are using this build, it makes everything in the game way less threatening, you literally have the ability to tank all types of damage from smaller low-level enemies to some of the hardest bosses in the game. If you play this build right, you will seriously be unkillable, so we think you seriously need to make this build as soon as you possibly can because it gives you that opportunity to pretty much go wherever you want in the game without having to worry about dying.
