Elden Ring: How to level up and better stats

Let’s find out together, in this dedicated guide, how to level up in Elden Ring and what are the best statistics to increase from the beginning of your journey in the Interregnum

We have left behind a 2021 full of small and large pearls, interesting titles and sensational postponements. This 2022 began in the wake of the previous year, with great video games already released, such as Pokémon Legends Arceus, Dying Light 2 or Horizon Forbidden West. And waiting for a sparkling March, February ended with one of the most important releases of the year: Elden Ring. The highly anticipated new iteration of the Souls franchise, from which it differs practically only for the name and not so much for the formula, the new title of From Software backed by names of the caliber of Hidetaka Miyazaki and George RR Martin arrived on the shelves last February 25, immediately enjoying a truly impressive success (both commercial and critical).

Waiting for our review, which will arrive as soon as the Interregnum will let us live, we thought of help newbies in their first steps in the adventure with a series of guides. To date you will find, here on, the complete trophy list and the best classes to start playing with. Here, however, we want to introduce you to a basic mechanic in the From titles, but which in Elden Ring differs marginally from the previous iterations of the franchise. In fact, we want to talk to you about how to level up in Elden Ring and, subsequently, which are in our opinion the best stats to increase right away. Let’s begin!

Level up | Elden Ring: How to level up and better stats

Fans of the souls, in front of the question “How to level up in Elden Ring?” they could turn up their noses, considering that the level up and the enhancement of the character, in the previous iterations, are possibilities given to the player from the beginning of the game (or at least, at most after the tutorial). In this new chapter of the franchise we could assert the same thing, but with a small difference. To start leveling up you will need to first make a pact with the mysterious Melinawhich will allow you, in her role as “Maiden”, to unlock other features of the Places of Grace.

To do this, go through the tutorial and exit to the first Tombstone map. After that, you will have to reach a specific Place of Grace, the one located in front of the Gates of the Gate (on the map it will be marked just as “In front of the gate”). Actually this is the closest to your starting position, but there are others as well, such as the one placed exactly opposite. The Ruins in front of the Gate will also allow you to get your first Map Shard and the Sharpening Knife.

Melina | Elden Ring: How to level up and better stats

Returning to us, once you have rested near the Grace in front of the Gate, a presentation cutscene will start for Melina, at the end of which she will offer her help. If by chance you are wrong and refuse it, you can still make your choice again. Accepting the help of the Maiden will guarantee you, in addition to the possibility of leveling up in all the Places of Grace, also that of ride Torrente, the phantom steed. Finally, if you decide to return to the Church of Elleh, the place of Grace immediately preceding it (at least following the game map), you will find Reindeer the Witch waiting for you. She will give you the Summoning Spirit Bell, which will allow you to summon spirits from ashy objects, consuming AP.

Once you understand how to level, the next step is obviously to understand where to throw your runes. We always premise, in these cases, that the following will be general and useful recommendations, perhaps, to novices of the genre. It is therefore not a universal guide, but a starting point for those who can find themselves lost in the first hours of the game.

The main stats | Elden Ring: How to level up and better stats

First of all, our advice is to give priority to Vitality and to Tempra, the two basic statistics par excellence. Increasing your Vitality will allow you to increase, in parallel, your Health Points and therefore inevitably your chances of survival. As the levels of Stamina increase, however, your Stamina will increase, the green bar under the HP, which allows you to run, block and dodge.

We then move on to Power and to Dexterity, the two basic stats that will allow you, based on the weapon you decide to wield, to inflict greater damage. In general, almost all early game melee weapons “scale” (so they deal more damage based on the stat) on either Strength or Dexterity, so leveling them up will inevitably make you stronger. However, we take care to tell you about the best weapons to use right away in a future guide.

Lastly, Intelligence. The parent stat for using spells and spells, although admittedly, for most classes will turn out to be fairly secondary at the start of the game. In fact, if you have chosen a class without a Staff to use spells, it will be quite difficult to find one in the first hours in Sepolcride. If, on the other hand, you have chosen the class ofAstrologer, leveling Intelligence will allow you to access other spells and increase the damage dealt by those you already have. Other statistics useful for casting spells are Dexterity, Faith and Arcane.
