Elden Ring Item Tier List: Best & Worst Items

Want to unleash a featureful version of the Elden Ring? Our Elden Ring Item Tier List will help you pick up all the vital in-game items! 

Elden Ring offers its users the most intense combative duel they might have ever seen with the massive horde of weapons and exciting collection of bosses on the leash. The thrill doesn’t end here as the Elden Ring holds yet another essential set of equipment to heat the intensity–called items. How could we resist either? Similar to our Elden Ring Weapons tier list and bosses tier list, here’s a complete Elden Ring Item Tier List to help you make the most of this utility too! 

Key Takeaways
  • Elden Ring has a massive collection of Items as its Weapons, Spirit Ashes, and Bosses. There are more than 150 Elden Ring Items currently available in the game.  
  • The vast array is divided into six distinct types that define an item’s use. The types are Great Rune, Key Item, Remembrance, Consumable, Upgrade Material, and Multiplayer Material. 
  • We rank all Elden Ring Items based on the overall value shown by each Item for their individual purpose and whether or not they are worthy of looting from lethal Bosses, chests, or the Lands Between.
  • Sewer-Goal Key, Remembrance of the Dragonlord, Godrick‘s Great Rune, Rune Arc, Somber Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone, and Small Golden Effigy are currently the highlight Items in Elden Ring. 
  • There are no worst-performing Items in Elden, but definitely, such that are not worthy compared to most. They are Fireproof Dried Liver, Smithing Stone, Torch, and Maps
  • The S-Tier ranked Elden Ring Items are an absolute must-have equipment for winning players that will help you in every situation. A-Tier Items can instead be skipped.

S-Tier Elden Ring Items S-Tier

S-Tier Elden Ring ItemsThe S-Tier includes items you must possess to further your adventure in the realm of Elden Ring. Though many of these will not be a direct key for opening the next challenge along the Elden Ring pathway, they will still prove significantly crucial.  

For instance, some Remembrances or Consumables of this tier may seem useless to you as not every offering suits everyone. Still, you may require it against a necessary-to-defeat boss at some point in the game. Therefore every Elden Ring Item mentioned below is worth your attention. 

Nevertheless, items ranked in this tier don’t necessarily imply that players initiate a blind quest of finding them. You will come past most of the S-Tier items along the way, and you just need to prioritize picking them.

How I Built This Tier List

We put a substantial amount of time and effort into curating game tier lists after thoroughly experiencing the play ourselves. The Elden Ring item tier list is no different, either. The items ranked above are not only placed into respective tiers merely on stats but also on how viable their effects can prove for individual players. 

Our team has tried to induce every necessary, most up-to-date information possible so our readers couldn’t miss any. However, because Elden Ring is a new release and we as gamers are still experiencing its vast fields filled with intense, new challenges, this tier list may lack some speck of information. 

Our overall Elden Ring items ranking and guide are open for further discussion in the comments below.

Tips: We previously curated the Elden Ring Spells tier list based on usability; make sure to read that as well.
