Elden RingChampion Notes & Tips
- Champions are one of two Classes that begin the game with Sacred Seals (Prophet being the other). This allows them to cast Incantations, which can be both offensive or defensive. They are also the only Class that starts the game with Dragonfire, so consider selecting this Class if you like this Spell.
- The Finger Seal has better Faith Scaling than the Clawmark Seal of the Prophet, so it should outperform it if you're going for a Faith Build. However, Champions don't gain Beast Claw until they complete the demo, and they start out with considerably less Mind, meaning they have much less FP to cast with.
- Dragonfire is very strong, and it has a much longer range than you might realize. Use it on horseback or on foot to take out large packs of enemies at once. You can hold down the cast button to keep spewing fire if you need to.
