With up to ten different classes for players to select from, the possibilities are endless in Elden Ring. Experienced RPG players may opt for a personal favourite class type among multiple titles, while beginners may want to stick to a more user-friendly type.

The best and most forgiving class for new and inexperienced players to select is the Warrior class. Within RPGs, the Warrior class is amongst the most well-rounded, minimizing deficiencies and maximizing ease of play.
