Are you not able to dodge roll quickly in Elden RIng and wondering why it’s happening? That is because your Equip Load might not be high. So in this guide, we will tell you how to increase or raise the Equip Load stat in Elden Ring.
1. What is Equip load in Elden Ring?
One of the stats in Elden Ring is Equip Load. The term “stats” refers to various characteristics that control your character’s strengths and weaknesses as well as how interactions in and out of combat affect them. Equip Load affects your ability to perform dodge rolls and backsteps.
Based on the combined weight of your currently equipped Weapons, Armor, and Talismans, Equip Load calculates your mobility, which, depending on the load, can limit your ability to take evasive action. It is one of the Base Stats that is directly impacted by a player’s distribution of their Main Attributes. Elden Ring’s character development heavily relies on stats like Equip Load.
I. How does Equip Load affect Dodge Rolls?
When you dodge roll, your character becomes temporarily invincible. Rolling uses the least stamina and provides the maximum invincibility with a Light Equip Load. Incoming assaults are very challenging to consistently avoid with a Heavy Equip Load since they require significantly more stamina and have a notably shorter window of invincibility.
The Status Screen displays Equip Load as two values combined into a fraction. The number on the right is your Maximum Equip Load, which is directly influenced by your Endurance stat, while the number on the left represents the total weight of your presently equipped Weapons, Armor, and Talismans.
There are three levels of Equip Load in Elden Ring – Light, Medium, and Heavy.
- Light Load: 29.9% of Max Equip Load and below.
- Medium Load: 30% to 69.9% of Max Equip Load
- Heavy Load: 70% to 100% of Max Equip Load
Around 60-69 percent load is a balanced kind of spot that can give you maximum defense and decent evasive ability. Additionally, Fall Damage starts to rise at 70% Equip Load. You will take 10% extra damage from falls at 100% Equip Load, and up to 30% at 150% Equip Load.
Further, we going to discuss how to increase the maximum Equip Load in Elden Ring.
2. How to raise Maximum Equip Load Elden Ring?
In Elden Ring, there are two ways to raise your equip load.
- Increase the Endurance Level
- Using Talismans
- Great-Jar’s Arsenal
- Arsenal Charm
- Erdtree’s Favor
I. How to Increase the Endurance Level?
Endurance is one of the eight Main Attributes on which you can spend Runes to level up.
- Defeat enemies and bosses to collect Runes.
- Go to any site of grace once you have enough Runes to level up your character.
- Rest there and choose level up.
- Now, raise your level of endurance. (With each character level, more runes are needed to raise an attribute.)
II. How to increase your Equip Load with Talismans?
Elden Ring has a variety of Talismans that you can use to enhance your character.
You can use three talismans to increase the maximum Equip Load:
- Great-Jar’s Arsenal – Found in the northwest of Deep Siofra River.
- Arsenal Charm – Found after beating the Godrick the Grafted boss and talking to Nepheli Loux in Roundtable Hold. You will have to first talk with her at Stormveil Castle before fighting the boss.
- Erdtree’s Favor – Found in a room in Fringefolk Hero’s Grave
3. Conclusion: How high can you raise the Equip Load in Elden Ring?
The highest equip load you can have in Elden Ring is 205.6. With Great-Arsenal Jar’s and Erdtree’s Favor +2, a character with 99 Endurance can equip the highest possible Equip Load of 205.6. This indicates that 61.4 is the maximum load that may be carried while still maintaining quick rolls. When combined with a Winged Crystal Tear, a Flask of Wondrous Physick momentarily raises this value to 925.3.
That marks the end of this guide article and we hope that this helped you.
