Ring of Elden possesses has captured the imagination of warriors and sword-throwing witches everywhere, becoming a huge hit since its release in February 2022 and living up to years of hype. FromSoftware’s latest open-world RPG manages to create a gross world with potty goblins and an utterly captivating dude called the Dung Eater, where any player gets the chance to prove their mettle. But before embarking on your deadly adventure in the Lands Between, you must choose from one of 10 character classes.

With a host of weird names and varying strengths and weaknesses, it can be daunting to figure out which one is right for you, especially if you’re new to FromSoftware games. Here is our list of levels of Ring of Elden Classes.


The Wretch is one of the weirdest classes in Elden RingFrom software

10. Miserable

Naked Wanderer has some of the worst early stats and starts the game with only a club and no armor. Wretch is only recommended for veterans of Dark Souls style games who are looking for an extra challenge on top of the game’s already high difficulty.

9. Prisoner

The chained soul has high dexterity and intelligence, making you strong in both magical combat and melee combat. The class can be difficult to handle if you’re not a veteran, so it might be best to try something else if you’re a newbie.

7. Prophet

The prophet has 16 high points of faith, which makes him perfect for summoning helpful spirits. With the ability to cast spells and aid you in combat, the Prophet is a solid choice for those looking to invest in a higher power.


6. Confessor

Are you ready to admit your sins? If not, the Confessor can certainly make you say so. With a fair amount of faith, strength, and dexterity, this class can deal extreme magic and physical damage. Just keep in mind that you don’t have the biggest health pool compared to some of the other classes.

He comes with a full arsenal of amazing weapons, like fire arrows, a katana, and a longbow, giving him the perfect mix of ranged and melee attacks. His original magic stats might not be the best, but they make up for that in stamina and dexterity.
