Elden Ring AR Calculator [Explained]

Check out my guide to learn all about the unofficial Elden Ring AR calculator, its usage, and how to plan builds with it.

The unofficial Elden Ring AR Calculator plans out player character builds. This tool allows players to set their stats, gear, and talismans to properly plan out any build.

Key Takeaways
  • AR (Attack Rating) In Elden Ring is a numeric value that showcases how much damage a weapon does per hit.
  • The increments of damage buffs such as lightning or status effects are also included in the AR.
  • The AR Calculator is used to assemble builds and calculate their damage output.
  • Players can set their attributes and filter out the weapons for their preferred build.
  • Also, if you ask me, it’s good that these builds can be saved to be accessed later.
  • This tool is primarily to craft PvP builds as they require a lot of intricate stat management, due to the META level being around 150.
