Combat in Elden Ring is full of different mechanics and a load of customization into how you want to play. One thing players can do in Elden Ring, that is actually a feature from Dark Souls 2 is called power standing. Here is how to do a power stance in Elden Ring.

What is Power Stance in Elden Ring?

Power Stance is when you dual-wield two of the same exact weapon. For instance, if you have two Warhawk Talons you need to equip one in your left hand and one in your right. From here, if you attack with the normal R1/RB button, you’ll do a normal combo.

What you actually want to do is now use the L1/LB button to use the Power Stance mechanics. This will use a more dual-wield focus attack chain. It’s more powerful and adds some quick hits into the mix.

Using a power stance can be done with any two weapons that are the same. A lot of weapons in Elden Ring, especially special weapons don’t have a second version in the game. This limits your options somewhat but not entirely. We recommend trying a bunch of different weapons out in power stance to find the combo you like the best.

That’s everything you need to know about how to power stance in Elden Ring.
