Does Arcane Increase Bleed: There are weapons in Elden Ring that make people hurt. If you plan to use these weapons, you should determine if Arcane makes people bleed more.
This is one of the game’s features that is easy to forget. People who know how it works will change how they use their weapons.
So without further ado, let’s quickly find out if Arcane can make Elden Ring‘s bleed damage go up more with its magic.
Does Arcane Increase Bleed in Elden Ring?
Yes, and no. Arcane can make a person bleed in different ways depending on the weapon.
If a weapon has Arcane scaling, it will cause more bleed buildup. If a weapon doesn’t have the scaling, it won’t make a difference.
User Battle Bear 819 on Reddit told us how to build up bleed with Arcane, and we’re grateful.
You can see all the posts on this thread here. Let’s look at two of the best bleed weapons in the game: the Reduvia Dagger and the Uchigatana, both on our list.
By default, the Reduvia Dagger has the following weapon scaling:
Str (Strength) E
Dex (Dexterity) D
Arc (Arcane) D
In this picture, you can see that the scale is D. So, if you want to use the Reduvia Dagger, you should raise your Arcane level.
To help you build up the bleed. Now, let’s look at the Uchigatana, too.
By default, the Uchigatana has the following weapon scaling:
Str (Strength) D
Dex (Dexterity) D
As you can see in the picture above, this weapon doesn’t have any scaling in the Arcane field. When your character has a high level of magic, it doesn’t matter how tall it is.
This comes down to your build. If you plan to use weapons that have arcane scaling in them, then you should level up that stat, as well.
It’s OK if you use other weapons, though. In addition, if you plan to build a game around Arcane, check out our guide on how to fix the Arcane Scale bug.
