Elden Ring Bandit Notes & Tips
- The bandit is the "stealth" or "assassin" option for players.
- The Bandit is ideal for Dexterity/Arcane hybrid builds with less than 12 strength. With 12 strength or more, they tie with the Samurai class for stat optimization.
- Comes equipped with a Buckler shield. Due to its unique skill, Buckler Parry, players who pick Bandit will immediately have one of the best parry tools once they start playing.
- Recommended only for veteran players, as the Bandit starts off squishy and their equipment is not well-suited for head-on, aggressive combat.
