      Just finished Nokron at low 60, and I was feeling that the game was being way too generous on the runes. Now I understand why. The level of challenge was ok, died just when I got reckless, like before the talisman against the two mimics.

        Should add a recommended vigour level just to avoid the "I'm X in Y but I keep getting one shot by Z?!?!?!"

        • Anonymous

          All the post-Stormveil areas should be +8 for regular weapons -- even if it's not their main weapon, many people will get the +8 Rogier's Rapier after beating Godrick.

            Nice list but for all the people not looking to summon or invade until later, level doesn’t matter much. You start with plenty of endurance for most fights. Fp is already not an issue at 20+ mind. Hit your early weapon/spell requirements, pump vigor, and you won’t have many level problems. What really matters is weapon level, which is easy to overdo if you use somber smithing stones from dragon barrow which is relatively easy to explore early,

              What's the recommended level for Godskin Apostle in Divine Caelid Tower? Currently around level 70, but keep getting decimated in 2 hits.

              • Anonymous

                If I receive +8 Rogiers Rapier, whats the recommended lvl to invade at? Seems like you get it very early in level and this chart is saying to use when you are level 60 which is not so early.

                • Anonymous

                  is the game progress route map suppose to match the list? if so, Altus Plateau doesn't match up. Should i have gone there before nokron?

                    If you guys want to have any chance of online cooperated help follow the level ranges above

                    Level too high and you are on your own

                      I did the sequence wrong I guess, I did the capital super early (high 60 low 70) then I did and am currently doing Leyndell, Ashen capytal, whic I find a bit too hard (am level 112) so I tought of going back to do the other zones, but they are all way too easy. that's sad but hey, the fault might be on me.

                        I remember having 1.5 million souls by the time I fought the last boss at 150. Rarely did anything online, bought every spell I could, and missed a couple bosses. I remember because I was sad when I lost them all in the last boss' second phase, where I couldn't retrieve my bloodstain/wheat in the first phase.

                          Level won't do much early only for spells or weapon usage. Most levels give you only like 10 pts to HP for Vigour? or so. Most bosses and enemies will hit half or a third of your life, so anywhere from 100-200 dmg from Limgrave to Stormveil. Armour negation only helps in this case as high as 20.00 physical or so forth. Weapon upgrades play a HUGE role in every souls, bloodborne and even elden. You will have a harder time with Margit even at soul level 20 with an unupgraded weapon as to a +3 weapon and a jellyfish.

                            Overlevelling/upgrading is so easy. If you aren't carefull you will be at level 50 with a +6 somber weapon. Good luck finding people to play with

                              Um, isnt somber 2.5x normal? All of these give a lower normal than what the special upgrade allows, is that intentional?

                                If you do all side dungeons and don't lose tons of runes from deaths there is no way you will end up with level 120-150 endgame.

                                I did every shred of optional content, but also never lost runes, bought tons of smithing stones, bought every vendor item in the game and flatout stopped leveling when I entered crumbling, and I still ended the game at level 168.

                                  do people not realize this is for invasions and not based around PVE singleplayer? or am I the one who's wrong?

                                    Most of these should decrease by about 10 levels. A lot of these zones have more wiggle room too. For instance I was getting constant summons in Leyndell at 74, but the second I hit 80 they stopped.

                                      Lol I don't think 120 is asking too much for the end game areas. I followed this list for most of my playthrough and I felt the difficulty was steadily increasing. Dont even focus on the level aspect just complete each area in this order

                                      • Anonymous

                                        Wow, I don't think this is correct. I easily killed Margit and Godrick around level 30. I completely curbstomped Rennala ar around level 53, to the point she couldn't even use her summons. Weeping Peninsula is also definitely easier than Limgrave. Siofra River is also very manageable at around 30 - the archers hurt but you can ignore them a simply explore and Ancestor Spirit is very easy.

                                        These recommendations severely overestimate the power of the enemies, at least in the early and mid game.

                                          Amazing, almost every single word of what you just said is wrong.

                                          Stormveil should be 10-20, Raya Lucaria should be 30-40, Leyndell should be 50-60. It's no wonder newbies to the franchise think that grinding runes at Mohgwyn palace is the right way to play the game when the wiki is telling them they need to be so overlevelled for each area.

                                              I play without particular build in my mind, just mix-and-matching melee, range, and incantations, use none of the supposedly OP weapons, and these recommend levels seem appropriate (at Mt. Gelmir at the moment). If you struggle A LOT (some struggle is expected since no build should be without weakness) in these area at these level ranges, you might want to look over your build. I believe that's the real use for the table; to measure if your build is up to the task or not.

                                              • Don't get too anxious about your levels. The levels in Elden Ring are much unlike any particular levels you know from other games, since it's not really the measure of your power, unless you invest without waste, but even for that your power is determined by your build, not really by your level. You get very low returns in damage if you invest too early or too much into offensive stats like strength, but you get much higher damage by upgrading weapons, which significantly cuts the difficulty. You also get much tougher by investing a fair amount of points into Vigor, which reduces the overall difficulty as well. Not to mention the fact that you have many OP weapons that you can defeat many powerful bosses with them with a fairly low level. Even if you are at level 400, without powerful builds, OP weapons or some good techniques, you will still struggle in most middle and later maps. You only need to heavily concern about levels if you are going to play as an invador, since your levels and weapon upgrades are the measures of the matching up.

                                                  Liurnia is far too low. Most people progressing the game will have a +8 weapon at Liurnia by virtue of a certain rapier and halberd obtained from quests. Suggesting that people are only +3 at the lake is a joke when at least 50% of the people are going to be +8 at this point anyway.

                                                  Same for all areas following Liurnia. They should be listed as +8. Only people who specifically aim to miss the rapier or halberd are going to be lower and those are a minority.

                                                    Arguing about levels is pointless. If a build is OP or not depends on how you min maxed stats. A highly optimized lvl 80 build can easily beat a lvl 120 who was experiencing with different stats.

I was wondering why people were saying rennala was easy when I beat her at lvl 30 with a non upgraded lordsworns straightsword. It didnt help that I started as a wretch bcuz I wanted to be "different". The increased hardship at least sharpened me.

                                                            What's a good level to be for invading a wide range of areas? I got bored of the one shot meta at lvl 125, I'm thinking level 60 is good?

                                                            • Anonymous

                                                              People arguing about levels etc are forgetting a few things:

                                                              1. The obvious thing is player skill level of course.

                                                              But there are more:

                                                              2. Every time you level, you don't necessarily get that much more powerful. It really depends on your build. For most main stats like Int for example, there are MASSIVE diminishing returns on stats once you pass 60 and once you reach 80 the gains are almost none. so the difference between a level 60 and 70 is a lot more than between a level 120 and 140. If you don't go with diminishing returns as a mage and start to invest more points into random stuff like arcane/faith, you aren't benefitting as much because you may only use incantations to a limited extent, because your sorceries will still be better with high int...

                                                              3. It largely depends on your build. Some bosses and areas in general are a lot easier as a ranged mage. Most people struggled with haligtree but as a ranged character I was able to snipe a lot of creatures from cliffs. Even the erdtree avatar+2 knights area was easy because I rock slinged at the avatar from the cliff to the right and I just hid behind the pillar when he did his shooting move.

And since it is a game and only intended for fun who cares. If you feel the need to flex how good you are at pressing buttons to complete strangers then that's on you. Play the game at whatever level your comfortable and having fun.

                                                                • You people are leveling? There are only three reasons to level in this game: (1) to meet a stat requirement for a weapon. Fists have no stat requirement. If you want to cheat and use a weapon, use a base-level club, even that has basically no stat req. (2) You keep dying. But you only die because you get hit. You get hit because you are playing the game wrong, so stop doing that. (3) Fights are taking too long. You're playing ER, which means you literally have nothing else going on in your life anyway and you are lying to yourself

Killed Godfrey in about 5 hits and Morgot in like a minute. Each rock sling was taking like 10% of their HP. So yeah I'd say level 70-80 for Leyndell

I was disappointed that they were so easy. The new play through I'm doing, I wanted to make sure I could experience the entire game and all bosses at a difficulty that was challenging, so this page has been an essential part of that effort.

                                                                                    That being said, I would say the levels shown here are a little too much, even at the lower ranges. For example, I'm in Siofra river at level 41, and not having much difficulty. I've got the twinned armor, a jellyfish shield, and a +10 weapon.

                                                                                    As a general rule of thumb, I think your level should closely correlate to your weapon upgrade to fit the difficulty of the game, and the weapon upgrades shown here do seem accurate (I would think so as you can infer the "normal" weapon upgrade level pretty well from what resources are available in each area). For me, the level range that works best for me to be challenged is (weapon level) * 4-ish. So, if my max weapon is +10, my max level should be around 40. Using that logic for Siofra River for example, you can see that the level range for that area would be around 32-48, which seems a little more reasonable to me.

                                                                                    tl;dr: For experienced players, use the normal weapon upgrade * 4 as the recommended level range

                                                                                    • Anonymous

The quest in Volcano Manor requires you to go to Mountaintop of the Giants, which requires completing the Capital first. You also get +7 somber stone in Volcano Manor and only +5(6?) in Capital which is also an indication that Mt. Gelmir should be completed later.

Please understand the average person does not care enough about video games to do this. From watching average people play this game these levels are perfectly reasonable for what an actual video game player would do.

                                                                                          It's a game yall.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            • Anonymous

I would say you don't have to be as high level if you are doing a lot of stealth, bypassing enemies you can just run past, etc however.
                                                                                              I beat some of these areas with little experience at a lower level no problem but I did a lot of that, when I tried to fight everything I very much needed to be the levels suggested.

                                                                                              So I think it's a fair spot right now.

If a new area is hard use whatever runes you get to level a level or two, if its easy hold off on leveling and use those runes for weapon upgrades or whatever. I think youll have a better experience.

I've been/and still being spanked by bosses 20-30 times easy prior to defeating them. It took me level 170 to put down Fire Giant and level 197 to put down Black Blade.

                                                                                                  I'm currently being absolutely hosed by Godfrey and I'm at an absurd..

                                                                                                  - Level 221
                                                                                                  - Using weapons either +10 or +25 with ashes of war
                                                                                                  - Mimic Tear +10 (Pre-Nerf as I'm not connected online)

                                                                                                  - 14 vials of health
                                                                                                  - 4 stat boosting talismans

                                                                                                  And I'm being absolutely crushed over and over.

                                                                                                  I just can't get the dodge techniques down with these bosses, their moves are too chaotic.

                                                                                                  I had a much easier time on Bloodborne because it rewarded you for pushing into the fight and the key moments to stagger bosses seemed more clear.

                                                                                                  That being said all I have left of all the bosses are Godfrey, Elden Beast, and Malenia. So not lack of progress, just nowhere near as pro as the rest of the community.

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

Reading all this level req. per area isnt really realistic. I have 110h until this point, never used exploits nor cheese methods. I heavily depend on my spirits, flask/potions/arcrunes ect. And i made sure i maxed out my weapon and even my spirits who are around +5 and +10. I am running a sanquine bleed build with the Rivers of Blood +10. It works perfectly.

I'm level 180, I fight everything I find in my path type of player and I also did some farming here and there, some bosses were super easy, especially with Black Knife, but I quickly woke up when I arrived in the Forbidden Lands to see that I can still get 2-3 shot (1600hp), by either the Zamor soldiers, or them damn ghost soldiers from Castle Sol. I play Samurai. Went to fight the gargoyle in front of the Bestial Sanctum and he still has attacks, fast ones, that hit like 2/3 of my HP bar. So if you're not like level 500 or something, I don't think there's something like overleveled In this game. I know, I'm not playing great, that damn action queue is killing me, can't get used to it, but hey, that's my experience.

                                                                                                        • Anonymous

I was like, level 166 and I could perfectly get summoned. But, today I increased it to level 172 and now no one can summon me. I'm honestly dying inside. I can't neither summon or be summoned, so I'll basically have to complete the game entirely alone. If I knew any of this before leveling up, I would have never done it. NEVER.

                                                                                                                    I’m barely at the late level 50s with strong equipment on my third playthrough and I’m already doing Nokron, Mt Gelmir and Deeproot depths. Spend your souls on boiled crabs, arrows and smithing stones for any weapon you find interesting. The game is very generous with souls and not every catacomb is necessary to pillage for every build.

                                                                                                                    • Anonymous

Just finished my second playthrough. First one blind with no co-op or pvp, didn't buy spells and most gear. I managed to platinum the game (seriously not sure how that happened) so I know I saw most of the content. I hit 150 while in the Consecrated Snowfields and literally played through Haligtree, Farum Azula, Shunning Grounds, Moghwyn Palace, Capital of Ash and final bosses sitting on 4.5million+ runes because I didn't want to level past 150 for pvp purposes.

                                                                                                                      Second time through I purchased everything I could, spells, gear etc, found all the stuff and did all the questlines I missed on my first playthrough and still hit 150 before Farum Azula. Literally no farming, minimal co-op and pvp, just a thorough playthrough. I don't doubt I could've EASILY hit 175+ in both cases had I not capped myself.

                                                                                                                      • Anonymous

Stopped at lvl150 with 3.3m runes to spare. Anyone claiming they completed the game below 120 was definitely cutting corners. This is not like other souls games where you could complete it within 20 hours or less. The scope is huge. 150 is reasonable.

                                                                                                                          So this thing is very off for those who intend to see all the sites before moving on from one area to the next. This "guide" assumes you have zero taste for taking your time, exploring, and/or sidequests, and that you just want to beat the game in the most direct line possible.

                                                                                                                              Should i Powerfarm so i level up or should i just leave liurna

Playing through again using level 80 weapons lvl 7 max and having a funner time. Am using summons though because some bosses smother me. Mohg died too easy to blood flies/ekzykes while distracted by summon.

                                                                                                                                    Overall I think this chart is accurate based on my co op. At lvl 80 I have had no issues invading or summoned past Lakes region. Siofra may be a bit low just because there are so many strong enemies that you can get worn down by arrows

I consider myself good at reflex games.. but I guess that's how Fromsoftware games are

Was attempting the apostle at lvl 117 and even with godrick's great rune on i was getting combo'd out in 2 hits. Even the basic radahn soldiers in there will 2-3 shot me with the damage they do. Even when using phys resistance tali and golden vow. if you look at the runes given by the apostle in the tower (94k) versus Giant's (70k) and Altus' (14k). He is the highest level Apostle. I would not be surprised if the scale is geared to lvl 130s

Real bummer since I completed Stormveil at level 15 for invading purposes.

                                                                                                                                                          If you're reading this, don't worry about levelling making things too easy on you. You deserve to play the game however you want and enjoy it! Levels won't make the entire game a cakewalk by any means, only certain pieces of gear do that.

                                                                                                                                                          I think it's important to note that, even for experienced Souls players, these are reasonable levels if you aren't using something that "breaks" the game.

                                                                                                                                                          If, for example, you're twinning collosals and jumping, using Rivers of Blood, or Casting with an optimized build, things are going to be much easier on you.

                                                                                                                                                          If you're trudging through the game with a zweihander and a dream, then expect to have a much harder time with things, and need more levels to make things bearable.

                                                                                                                                                          Regardless of what you end up doing, the most important thing is to ensure the game stays engaging and fun, and to not to worry so much about people judging you.

                                                                                                                                                          You got this, brave Tarnished!

I've sat idle pretty much everywhere possible on the map and this is my conclusion. Anyone have any other suggestions drop them below for me. Thanks!

People beat the game at SL1 all the time. Speed run it even. For the guys who say this is unreliable. Get outa here. This is great info for new or returning players. That's why I'm here. New to Elden Ring, not new to souls games, and was wondering of a recommended level by end of new game. Fextralife never lets me down! Happy playing all! (level 183, 143 hours in, 1 character)

Feels like God of War or some easy button masher. Raya Lucaria was a joke at level 70.

Once I'm done, I will make a backup and then be able to do multiplayer at every levels after 50. I can go to lvl 80 for example, have fun in cooperative PvE and then take my backup and return lvl 50 and do some activities in Liurnia. That way you don't have to stress about being overleveled because you have a clean low level backup with everything you need.

                                                                                                                                                                  • Anonymous
