To activate Power Stance, you need to have two weapons of the same type equipped.

It can be two daggers, two spears, or even two colossal weapons.

Once both weapons are ready, press the L1/LB button to activate Power Stance.

When activated, it unlocks a special moveset designed for dual-wielding combat.

This enables you to execute a series of specialized attacks, emphasizing the use of two weapons simultaneously.

What Stats Do You Need to Power Stance?

Unlike Dark Souls 2, Power Stance activation does not have specific stat requirements in Elden Ring.

It depends solely on meeting the necessary stats of the equipped weapons.

What Are the Advantages of Power Stancing?

Power Stance increases damage output and offers new ways to fight.

Upgrading both weapons is crucial for maximizing effectiveness.

However, it’s important to note that Power Stance attacks consume a considerable amount of stamina.

So if you’re not careful, you might struggle to dodge or avoid incoming attacks.

That’s why Power Stancing requires investing in the Endurance stat to increase equipment load and stamina capacity.
