It is worth mentioning that your character’s class will only impact the beginning of the journey. As you progress through the levels, you can evolve any attributes and follow a different path from the original without any problems. Furthermore, it will be possible reset attributesafter defeating some campaign bosses.

In my case, for example, I started the campaign as Prisoner focused on enchanting weapons with magic. After a while, I became a Samurai equipped with two katanas. After an in-game update, I switched once again to a sort of Warrior who uses dragon enchantments and causes hemorrhage.

Now that you know the details, let’s get to the class guide Elden Ring:

  • Starting level: 9;
  • Initial attributes:
Vitality: 14 Skill: 9
Mind: 9 Intelligence: 7
Fortitude: 12 Faith: 8
Force: 16 Arcane: 11

Rogues deal physical damage at close range and rely on evenly distributed Stamina, Strength, and Dexterity. This class has balanced attack and defense, making it ideal for anyone who wants to live the fantasy of being a standard medieval knight. In the starting arsenal there is a halberd, a longsword and a shield.

The class has a lot of physical defense, being the most “tank” of all options. With the initial shield, it is possible to defend against even the most powerful attacks of bosses without taking damage.

Because it is more resistant and simple to use, this class is recommended for beginners in action RPGs or for experienced players who don’t intend to equip spells or enchantments. In attributes, focus on evolving Vitality, Strength, Fortitude and Dexterity, in that order.

Warrior

  • Starting level: 8;
  • Initial attributes:
Vitality: 11 Skill: 16
Mind: 12 Intelligence: 10
Fortitude: 11 Faith: 8
Force: 10 Arcane: 9

Warriors forgo the defense of a large shield to wield two swords. This class focuses on attack, with quick strikes and agile movement, thanks to light equipment. The two starting Scimitars can still be upgraded with Blood-type War Ashes to hemorrhage enemies.

This class doesn’t have as much physical resistance, so you need to know the right time to dodge the bosses’ attacks. His playstyle revolves around finding openings in enemy combos., deal quick damage, and walk away again. Summoning spirits to distract opponents is also a good choice.

If you put the Blood attribute on the Warrior’s weapons, the class can become one of the deadliest in the entire game, dealing massive damage in no time. For attributes, focus on evolving Vitality, Dexterity and Fortitude, in that order. It’s also worth putting some points into Arcane to cause more bleeding.

Hero

  • Starting level: 7;
  • Initial attributes:
Vitality: 14 Skill: 9
Mind: 9 Intelligence: 7
Fortitude: 12 Faith: 8
Force: 16 Arcane: 11

Heroes, like Warriors, also have great offensive potential.. However, instead of dealing damage with rapid movements in a row, the class values ​​the use of giant, heavy weapons – great for breaking enemies’ posture, allowing critical hits while they are stunned.

This option is best for players who like to use the biggest weapons available, like the colossal swords. Your starting arsenal includes a battle ax and a large leather shield for defense.

In starting attributes, the class has the lowest numbers in intelligence and mind. So it’s a good choice to build characters focused only on physical damage. When evolving, choose to spend points on Vitality, Strength and Fortitude. If using weapons that bleed, upgrade Arcane as well.

Bandit

  • Starting level: 5;
  • Initial attributes:
Vitality: 10 Skill: 13
Mind: 11 Intelligence: 9
Fortitude: 10 Faith: 8
Force: 9 Arcane: 14

Bandits are the most agile and stealthy in Elden Ring. With their daggers, the class can carry out sequences of dozens of attacks in a few seconds. In case the situation gets complicated, there’s still a small shield for defense and a bow to deal ranged damage with arrows.

The Bandido’s biggest differential is its initial dagger, which has a special ability called “Agile Step”. This power allows the character to perform a small side dodge. In addition to being invulnerable for a few milliseconds, you can reposition yourself in the middle of the fight, without relying only on the traditional roll.

By starting with a lot of stat points in Dexterity and Arcane, the class is well suited to use equipment that causes hemorrhage. If you want to go this route, keep evolving these two stats, as well as Vitalityand fetch a dagger called Reduvia in the first region of the game — Limgrave.

Samurai

  • Starting level: 9;
  • Initial attributes:
Vitality: 12 Skill: 15
Mind: 11 Intelligence: 9
Fortitude: 13 Faith: 8
Force: 12 Arcane: 8

Samurai are eastern warriors who use katanas as their main weapon.. In playstyle, the class is quite similar to Warriors, as it focuses more on offense than defense. There is, however, an important differential: all katanas in the game cause enemies to hemorrhage passively.

Bleeding is a very important status in Elden Ring, as it deals a large amount of damage after a certain number of attacks. Being able to do this right at the beginning of the adventure helps a lot in the fights against the first bosses. In the initial arsenal, Samurai also have a bow for ranged fights.

When upgrading attributes, focus points on Vitality, Dexterity and Fortitude. Katanas also get stronger based on the character’s Strength, but Dexterity is even more important. Placing points in Arcane will allow you to hemorrhage enemies faster and more often.

Elden Ring Astrologer

  • Starting level: 6;
  • Initial attributes:
Vitality: 9 Skill: 12
Mind: 15 Intelligence: 16
Fortitude: 9 Faith: 7
Force: 8 Arcane: 9

Astrologers are the traditional wizards of the game. Specializing in the use of offensive, defensive, and support spells, the class starts with a staff and two learned spells — Pebble Pebble and Pebble Bow. In addition, there is a wooden sword and shield in the arsenal for emergency situations.

In Elden Ring, spells are pretty strong. In all, there are 87 spells to learn from different elements such as ice, magma, gravity, among others. This class is suitable for both those who want to build a complete mage and for players who want to make an arcane warrior.mixing physical and magical blows.

In attributes, focus on evolving Intelligence, Mind and Vitality. Depending on your build, you can still increase Dexterity if you want to enchant swords with magic, or improve Faith if you want to mix holy enchantments or dragon strikes with traditional spells.

Prisoner

  • Starting level: 9;
  • Initial attributes:
Vitality: 11 Skill: 14
Mind: 12 Intelligence: 14
Fortitude: 11 Faith: 6
Force: 11 Arcane: 9

Prisoners are balanced between physical and magic damage. This class is the best option for building arcane warriors, who equip swords enchanted with spells and can still use spells. At the beginning, the character starts with a staff, a stabbing sword, and a shield.

Because it is very balanced, the class can be difficult to use., especially by beginner players. Even the initial spell — Swords of the Wolf — requires training, as it only deals damage after a few seconds of casting.

If you want to build an arcane knight, distribute the attributes in Vitality, Intelligence, Dexterity and Mind, in that order. Only put points into Strength until you have enough to use whatever weapons you want.

Prophet

  • Starting level: 7;
  • Initial attributes:
Vitality: Skill:
Mind: Intelligence:
Fortitude: Faith:
Force: Arcane:

Prophets can also use spells, just like Astrologers. However, its powers are enchantments based on Faith and Arcane attributes, such as healing and stat upgrades, as well as holy, electrical, poison, blood, fire, and dragon attacks. In the starting arsenal there is a short spear, a shield, a seal and two enchantments.

This class is recommended for more experienced players., mainly because the initial enchantments — Healing and Ah, Flames! — consume a lot of mana at the beginning of the game. In addition, Faith is an attribute that takes a long time to result in damage in Elden Ring.

If you choose to be a Prophet, evolve the Faith, Vitality, and Mind attributes in that order. If you want to use heavier weapons like Reapers, put some points into Strength and Dexterity.

Confessor

Vitality: 10 Skill: 12
Mind: 13 Intelligence: 9
Fortitude: 10 Faith: 14
Force: 12 Arcane: 9

Confessors work similarly to Prisoners. However, instead of using Intelligence spells, they rely on Faith-based enchantments in addition to their primary physical damage weapon. In the starting arsenal, the class has a straight sword, a shield, a seal and two enchantments.

Unlike Prophets, who have an offensive enchantment right at the start of the adventure, Confessors start with two support skills — Urgent Healing and Approaching the Killer. Because it doesn’t have powers that deal direct damage, the class can be tricky for beginning players.

If you want to make an enchanted warrior who uses large and heavy weapons, evolve the Vitality, Faith, Strength and Fortitude attributes, in that order.. If you want to use lighter and faster weapons, trade Strength for Dexterity. Put points in Mind for mana if you are going to use a lot of enchantments.

Miserable

Vitality: 10 Skill: 10
Mind: 10 Intelligence: 10
Fortitude: 10 Faith: 10
Force: 10 Arcane: 10

Miserables are like blank canvases in Elden Ring. This class is considered the most difficult in the game as it starts at level one, with no defensive equipment and just a simple wooden club as a starting weapon.

The great advantage of Miserables is being able to transform the character into whatever you want. All attributes start at 10 points, making it the most balanced class in the entire game. Only choose this option if you are a very experienced player and want more challenges early on in the adventure.

On the other hand, this class is perfect for players who like to change builds all the time, especially after clearing the campaign for the first time. When respawning, your stats always go back to 10, so there will be no wastage of points.
