  • The best Elden Ring starting class is Vagabond.
  • For a full magic-based ranged attack class in Elden Ring, then Astrologer is the best starting class.
  • For a mix of close-ranged weapons and long-ranged bow & arrows, the Samurai class is what you should choose.

Let’s look at these classes in a bit more detail.

Vagabond class can wear heavy armor to protect you against the attacks from bosses and even other enemies. This single ability itself will help you learn all the combat basics like parrying and blocking attacks. Also, Vagabond players will get 14 Strength, second highest only to Hero class with 16 Strength. This means you can equip weapons that depend on Strenth stats (weapons in Elden Ring are tied to different stats), and deal more attack damage than others.

This is the best class if you are planning to use only melee weapons instead of ranged weapons like arrows or magic skills. Vagabond is equivalent to a “Quality Build” in Elden Ring. This allows you to experiment with different weapons by leveling up your Dexterity & Strength in equal measure. This will allow you to have the highest damage output possible from the start. Which is there should make way for simpler gameplay without much focus on other attributes in the game. So if you are new to soul-like games, or in short if this is your first “From Software” game, then Vagabond is the best starting class for you.

If you are looking for a full magic-based ranged attack class in Elden Ring, then Astrologer is the one for you. Having different magic spells in your arsenal means Astrologer is the defacto Sorcerer class in Elden Ring. The only downside is that you have to always keep a close eye on your FP bar, and plan out your skills to take out enemies efficiently.

And finally, if you want a mix of both close-ranged weapons and long-ranged bow & arrows, then you should check out the Samurai class. Their main highlight is the longbow to chip away enemy health bar from a distance, then close in for that sweet instant kills with your Katana. Being the best melee class in Elden Ring, you can always depend on your dex stats to deal extra damage.
