“Elden Ring”‘s Darth Sidious (Kind of) Lightsaber Build

One “Elden Ring” player demonstrated how they made their Tarnished as strong as Darth Sidious, aka Palpatine, by employing many dragon incantations.

“Elden Ring”‘s medieval warfare style is colliding with Star Wars’ sci-fi splendour thanks to a new build that transforms the player character into Darth Sidious. While it is fairly uncommon for “Elden Ring” players to transform their character Tarnished into a well-known fictional figure, this may be the first time a player has succeeded to construct a lightsaber-wielding Sith lord.

Because of its slick action, vast environment, and extensive character creation, Elden Ring has been regarded as one of the greatest games published this year. “Elden Ring” players have been able to show a lot of ingenuity in how they play the game due to the nature of the game. Different class builds, armaments, and weaponry that the player employs may drastically alter the game’s experience, and figuring out the optimal method to play is part of the pleasure for players. “Elden Ring” players like finding great builds, but they may also use such builds to reinforce a character theme or idea, as one “Elden Ring” player demonstrated.

The design of a player’s “Elden Ring” figure looks to be modeled on Darth Sidious, the Galactic Emperor from the original Star Wars trilogy and The Rise of Skywalker, according to a Reddit post by user Nomadianking. Nomadianking was able to reproduce Darth Sidious’ horrible face features and attire using the character creator suite, but it’s the full package that sells the replication. The Faith and Arcane characteristics appear to be significantly invested in the player character, allowing them to perform the Dragon Lightning Spear and Strike incantations. Darth Sidious’ force lightning from the Star Wars films is modeled off this. The Vyke’s Dragonbolt incantation is also used by Nomadianking to strengthen the weapon in their right hand. This causes it and the player to spark with electricity, giving the blade the appearance of a Star Wars lightsaber.
Other “Elden Ring” participants quickly pointed out that the brawl was most likely staged. Players perceive the incantations in “Elden Ring” to be underpowered, therefore it’s probable that if Nomadianking faced a monster in a real fight, they’d be overpowering. The incantations are interesting to look at, but they aren’t useful.

Even though “Elden Ring” has no incantations or spells that may provide a player force abilities, this Darth Sidious construct is still a lot of fun to look at. It’s just one more illustration of how rich and profound the “Elden Ring” experience can be.
