The best Character Build for each class in Elden Ring.

Astrologer Build

Anyone who has experience with fantasy RPG games can tell it’s a mage class by the appearance of the Astrologer. The Astrologer can be a powerful beginner class with its ranged spellcasting ability. The Astrologer has the highest “Intelligence” and “Mind” perk rating. The “Intelligence” will decide the magic strength of your character. The “Mind” perk will dictate the number of spells your character can use and learn.

Astrologer Rating.

Additional Build Info.

  • Every class in Elden Ring has the ability to choose a “Keepsake,” which is an additional item that will boost your character’s stats. Choose the “Golden Seed,” which will give you an extra flask. Allocate your Flasks in a way that will give you more “Mana” than “Health.” You can allocate your flasks at “Sites of Lost Grace.”
  • To get a better and upgradable staff than the one you start with, head out to the “Weeping Peninsula.” Defeat the “Demi-Human Queen” boss in the “Demi-Human Ruins” to receive the “Demi-Human Queen’s Staff.
  • Kill Imps down in the “Catacombs” at Limgrave. They may drop an “Imp Head,” which will give a 2 point boost to your Intelligence rating.
  • Buy “Memory Stones” from the hold early in the game to increase your spell slots.

Bandit Build

The Bandit class may look like a typical assassin class, but it is not. The closest class the Bandit resembles is a “Thief” class. The Bandit has a high “Dexterity” rating which will allow you to be swift and nimble in combat. In addition to “Dexterity,” it has a high “Arcane” rating. The “Arcane” perk in Elden Ring is basically “Luck.” A high “Arcane” rating will give you better loot drops. Since Bandit is a “Sneak” class, you will eventually have to spend points on “Vigor” to maximize your low health.

Prophet Rating.

Vagabond Build

This class is perfect for amateurs who are new to games like Elden Ring. Vagabond has evenly distributed ratings and makes a good class for new players. This class’s “Dexterity,” “Vigor,” and “Strength” are equally high.

Vagabond Rating.

Additional Build Info
