Elden Ring was the biggest release of 2022, and players still enjoy the game even after a whole year. Elden Ring is a massive game with loads of activities to do and features to explore. While you have to increase your character strengths to fight enemies, players need to concentrate on increasing certain powers that help them handle tricky situations, and here comes the Focus feature. This guide will help you know about Focus and how to increase it.

Elden Ring Focus Feature Explained- How It Works?

If you are playing Elden Ring, you are aware that this game has numerous activities to do, and some dangers await you at every step. So, from the beginning, you have to carefully think about your character building and which abilities of your character are most effective.

Elden Ring has a few classes available, and players need to invest in strengthening the powers of their character based on the class they have selected. Though players generally try to maintain HP and Stamina to survive and progress through the game, Focus should also be taken into consideration. It is probably the most underrated Stat that can play an essential role if you work on it. Now, you may get confused about why Focus is so vital in Elden Ring.

In Elden Ring, Madness and Sleep are the two most problematic Status effects that can be inflicted on players, and there are several enemies who will try to inflict these effects on them. These Status Effects make players vulnerable to the enemy and make the game more challenging. Focus can give players additional resistance against Madness and Sleep. So, we suggest increasing Focus as much as possible so you don’t get vulnerable to these Status Effects.

Focus can’t be increased directly. Players need to invest in Mind Stat to increase Focus. Below we have listed a few items to increase Focus-

  • Rift Shield
  • Spiralhorn Shield
  • Shield of the Guilty
  • Cohryn’s Robe Chest Piece
  • Mottled Necklace
  • Clarifying Horn Charm
  • Astrologer’s Trouser
  • Mushroom Arms Gauntlets
  • Mushroom Leg
  • Greathood Headpiece
  • Gold Waistwrap
  • Fire Prelate Greaves

Try to have some of these items in your inventory; So, whenever you are in some trouble, especially encountering enemies who can inflict Madness or Sleep effects on you, use these items to get resistance.

That’s all you need to know about how Focus works in Elden Ring.
