Increase Attack Speed In Elden Ring: In a game like Alden Ring, every second counts. It can be another that can give you a great victory or a devastating loss. In order to make the most of your time in the game, it’s vital to land some quick attacks to whittle down enemy health. This guide on how to increase attack speed in Alden Ring can help you with that.
How to increase attack speed in Alden Ring?
The only way to “boost” your weapon’s attack speed in Alden Ring is to change it to a smaller weapon with less weight. There is no stat or item that can modify and increase swing speed for any weapon. Players need to choose a lighter weapon that is faster than heavier, slower-swinging weapons. Since lighter weapons deal less damage per hit, players need to land back-to-back attacks and make the most of speed.
What are the fastest melee weapons in Alden Ring?
These are some of the best weapon types that aren’t heavy hitters but are small and good enough to land a quick attack or two (before the enemy puts your silly ambitions to rest).

The speed of your weapon, along with the timing of attacks will make a big difference in the game.
