Starting classes in Elden Ring also begin stocked with particular items and equipment, matching the title and stats of the class. Players can also customize their character with different armour sets and skills, but there's no doubt starting class is an important early-game decision.
One of the more interesting new starting classes features some serious magical abilities and players are certainly taking note. Here's a detailed guide to Elden Ring's Prophet class, including gameplay details, starting items, and stats.
Elden Ring Prophet class - Starting stats & items
The Prophet class in Elden Ring is described as "A seer ostracized for inauspicious prophecies. Well versed in healing incantations." It should be noted that the Prophet is probably not the best Elden Ring starting class for beginner players, but those familiar with Soulsbourne titles will likely enjoy this class.
Check out the starting items for the Prophet class in Elden Ring below:
- Finger Seal
- Rickety Shield
- Prophet Blindfold
- Prophet Robe
- Prophet Trousers
- Beast Claw
- Oh, Flame!
- Vision of Grace
- Player choice of Keepsake
This class is best suited as a mage-type, but still comes equipped with a few close-range physical combat items like the Spear and Shield. There are a few selections to browse through so have a look at our guide for the best keepsake items to help with your selection.

- Dexterity - 10
- Mind - 14
- Intelligence - 7
- Endurance - 8
- Faith - 16
- Strength - 11

With the highest starting Faith in Elden Ring, the Prophet also features 14 Mind, 10 Arcane, and still decent Strength at 11. Though only 8 Endurance suggests you should keep yourself from getting into tight situations, at least in early gameplay.
Elden Ring Prophet gameplay advantages
Due to the very high Faith and Mind of the Prophet starting class, this is best to be selected by players who want to focus on Incantations. The Finger Seal comes with the starting Prophet set of items so players will be ready to perform spells right away.
Something to take into account is the mana needed to perform spells, so be sure not to run out early-game by spamming magical abilities. Catch Flame will be one of the better spells available to deal damage to opponents in combat settings.
Prophets can also use Incantations for healing and curing purposes in addition to damaging enemies.
