Elden Ring Arcane Weapons not scaling
So, I was enjoying my Elden Ring Gameplay to the Fullest and as a veteran Souls game player, I was looking forward to Weapon scaling & built my whole character around the Arcane Weapons scaling.
Despite having specified scaling traits, weapons such as Rivers of Blood, Mohgwyn’s Sacred Spear, and Marais Executioner’s Sword do not benefit from player stats. This appears to affect all weapons with elemental damage and arcane scaling and utterly spoils the experience with such weapons because they do not operate as intended with the players’ stats.
Some Arcane scaling weapons are now broken in Elden Ring.
Continue reading to learn why Arcane weapons do not scale and what you can do about it.
What are Weapons Scaling?
If you’re new to the FromSoftware games you may be in a maze about what’s weapon scaling. Scaling refers to how much damage is given to a weapon as a result of your investment in a certain Stat, such as Strength or Dexterity. Elden Ring manages it similarly to the Souls franchise, with ‘S’ being the best Scaling, followed by ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’, ‘D’, and ‘E’.
To summarize, the better the letter, the more harm you will deliver by investing in the state of scaling Stat. Some Weapons have more than one Scaling Stat, so pay attention to which ones these are and boost the ones that offer you the greatest damage per Attribute Point invested.
The reason behind Weapons not Scaling in Elden Ring
Previously, owing to an unresolved error, weapons that scale with Arcane and have at least two damage types did not gain any scaling benefits.
The main reason behind weapons not scaling of an internal game bug.
The good news is that not all arcane-scaled weapons are bugged. Weapons with simply Physical attack power can still obtain scaling benefits, however, weapons with an additional attack power can not receive scaling bonuses.
How to Solve Arcane Weapons not Scaling in Elden Ring?
Consider a stat respec if you’ve already committed to arcane-focused weapons but don’t want to wait for FromSoftware to release a patch. After defeating Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon, you will be able to access this function.
FromSoftware has published an update Patch v1.03 that corrects the incorrect scaling of Arcane with select weapons as of March 17, 2022. The entire patch notes can be found on the publisher’s official website.
