The Finger Seal is an excellent catalyst for using the Howl of Sabriri and Golden Vow incantations. It has an S scaling with Faith attribute when upgraded to max level +25.

However, if you don’t have it, you can also go with a catalyst of your choice.

  • Howl of Sabriri: When you use this incantation, you shriek and build up madness in nearby foes and yourself. You need this to utilise the new talisman, Aged One’s Exultation.
  • Golden Vow: Using this incantation, you increase your ATK and DEF attributes and your allies.

Armor set — Rakshasa

The Rakshasa armor set not only looks fantastic, but it also comes with a hidden buff that increases damage dealt to foes at the expense of increased damage taken by the wearer.

You can mitigate most of that by using Golden Vow and improving your Endurance stat. Also, you must not worry about the added debuff, as you will be one-shotting every enemy and boss.

For Flask of Wondrous Physick, to deal maximum damage with your attacks, we recommend using the following Tear:

  • Bloodsucking Cracked Tear: Enhances attacks at the cost of HP in mixed physick.
  • Lightning-Shrouding Cracked Tear: Temporarily boosts lightning attacks in mixed physick.

When it comes to stat point distribution, we recommend keeping the Faith and Dexterity stats at least 50. Vigor greater than 50 is always good, and Endurance between 25 and 30 or more is essential.

How to play the best Perfume Bottle build in Elden Ring

Before any big fight, you must first use the Howl of Sabriri until you inflict Madness status on yourself. After that, use the Golden Vow followed by the Flask of Wondrous Physick. Once done, you must restore your HP and FP and enter the arena.
