On this page of the Elden Ring guide you will find descriptions of all classes along with their stats.

Last update: Monday, February 28, 2022

The following page of the guide to Elden Ring describes all the character classes available in the game. It covers their characteristics, statistics and strengths.

General information

The starting class is your character's origin. This choice determines the initial statistics of your character and the equipment with which you start your adventure in Elden Ring. Choosing the class significantly affects the first hours of the game.

However, the differences between classes will begin to blur over time and become less important as you progress. There is no wrong choice, so feel free to choose the class that best suits your style of play.

Vagabond

This is a class of tough and well-armored knights. Vagabonds banished from their country are good at melee combat. However, you must remember that by choosing this class, you will have to take off your helmet or halberd. Otherwise, you will exceed 70% of the carrying capacity and you won't be able to dodge and roll over.
