Can You Change Class In Elden Ring?

How to change your class in Elden Ring - is it possible to do so or are you stuck with it for the rest of the game?

If you’ve picked a class that needs mastery in melee combat but now that you’ve seen how OP some mage builds can get, you might want to switch over to another class. In such a scenario, you might wonder – can you change class in Elden Ring, and if yes, how to change it?

How to Change Class in Elden Ring?

Unfortunately, you cannot switch classes midway in Elden Ring. If you are okay with restarting your progress, you can create a new save file with another class that you want to play the game with. But before doing that, consider this – you can respec your character’s attributes to make them more like another class without needing to start from scratch. This is ideal for those who have already progressed quite a bit in the game and would like to continue from there by reallocating the stats on their leveled-up character.

Keep in mind that there will be some spoilers related to the boss you need to beat and the item you need to make it happen.
