Stats in Elden Ring refer to various properties that govern your character's strengths and weaknesses, as well as how they are affected by interactions in and out of combat. There are 8 main Stats in Elden Ring, as well as several dozen secondary stats which all contribute to your character's growth and effectiveness in various situations. Stats are affected by a number of things and can be modified by your Level, Equipment and any active buffs and effects.

Within the Status Menu, you can check your level, attributes, base stats, and more. The information shown here also reflects changes to your attack, defense, and resistances bestowed by armaments and armor that you have equipped. 

  • See Leveling for details on how to level, a breakdown of runes necessary per level, and more.
  • See Runes for details on acquiring runes and rune acquisition boosting equipment.
  • See Rebirth for details on how to reallocate (respec) assigned attribute points.

 

How do you increase Stats in Elden Ring?

The primary method of increasing your stats is by Leveling Up. Near the beginning of the game and shortly after meeting Melina for the first time, you will unlock the ability to Level Up by spending Runes acquired by defeating enemies.

Elden Ring features 8 Main Stats (also referred to as Attributes). These are your Vigor, Mind, Endurance, Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence, Faith and Arcane. Each one of these main Stats governs your secondary stats such as HP, FP, Stamina and Equipment Load. Players can spend Runes at a Site of Grace to increase their main stats, effectively increasing their character Level, as well as improving their secondary stats.

Stats are also affected by your current Equipment and any active buffs obtained through Magic or Items. Combining these aspects is key to character progression and creating effective builds in Elden Ring.

Can you respec your Stats in Elden Ring?

After completing Raya Lucaria Academy, you will be able to reset point allocations and redistribute all of your earned Stat points however you wish in exchange for a Larval Tear, a rare item obtained through various means. You would most likely be over level 50 by the point you get to this, so your early build is quite important as you cannot change it: see our Elden Ring Builds page for ideas on how to make a good character.

This is commonly known as 'Respeccing' and is a system that caters to players' needs for customization and trying out other builds without having to restart the game over.

Elden Ring Stats

Level

A cumulative figure that represents overall attribute strength.
You can level up using runes.

Runes Held

Total runes in possession. Upon dying, you will drop any runes in your possession at the site of your death.

Runes Needed

Number of runes required to raise a level.
When you Level Up, you can choose an attribute to increase.

 

Main Character Attributes

This section lists all of your character's Main Stats, also referred to as Attributes. These Stats govern all other secondary Stats and can be increased by spending acquired Runes on them using the Level Up menu at any Site of Grace once the feature is unlocked.

At certain points when levelling an Attribute at higher levels, you will start getting diminishing returns, i.e. the benefit you gain from levelling that Main Stat is less significant than before. The level at which these diminishing returns occur are referred to as soft-caps or breakpoints. You can find the soft-cap of each Attribute listed below. Note that some stats actually grant accelerating returns at lower levels: for example, Vigor's HP gain per level increases from levels 1-40, but decreases after level 40.

The hard-cap for all Stats is 99: you are unable to level a Stat past that level, and it is not possible to exceed 99 through equipment or buffs. (An exception is that your effective Strength can be increased past 99 by two-handing.)

      can someone explain to me what defense does because I know the numbers on the right of the menu are negations but what is defense

      • Anonymous

        As someone who doesn’t really like strength, I really want strength to become insanely strong in the dlc or future games. Mostly because there is a subsection of strength builds who complain about everything all the time since ds1 poise was removed (and honestly they complained a lot even back in ds1), and if strength is undeniably the best stat I’d like to see what they’d complain about.

        • Anonymous

          you guys keep talking about soft caps but when i go over 80 (up to 99), damage definitely does increase for things like str and dex. slower, yes, but it goes steadily up. so an S scaling weapon for strength gives demonstrably more damage at 99 than 80. soooooo there's no cap in reality...

          • Anonymous

            This has contradictory information on it. It says the Faith damage scaling is 20/55/80 in the first section and then it says it's 20/50/80 in the table.

              Stamina Regen should be mentioned here as a stat. With some information about how it actually works. For example: is it the same on heavy and light equip load?

              • Anonymous

                Feels to me like this game is designed to be played with either Dex or Strength and one out of Intelligence, Faith and Arcane. Quality infusion especially feels awful and going pure melee is just frustrating for many late game boss fights. Not saying this is bad or anything, just an observation.

                • Anonymous

                  Do stats round up? say if you want to use the night rider glaive at 26 strength requirement and you invest 17 points of strength and two hand, would the game round up the 25.5 strength to 26?

                    I leveled mind and stamina and did a quality build and my numbers look like garbage compared to a focused build I’m seeing now.

                    Their hp is twice mine, and their damage output is nearly twice mine. Is there a way for a quality build to not be so much less than pure str/dex?

                    And especially the not having double hp is really the downside. Makes it so much easier to escape death.

                    Bit disappointed that leveling things for a good time now makes the game a lot tougher, now I need to take the time to get a ton of runes to get my levels up instead of progress through the game

                    Lesson learned. Just optimize your stats and get the talismans you need. I think I missed over half the game progressing so far by the way. Lots of stuff out of the way, and stuff pretty well hidden. Bit of an odd game lol. But I haven’t played other big world rpgs

                    • Anonymous

                      Dumb stats again. Equip load gives so much, it should be its own stat instead of all melee chars getting it for free with stamina on Endurance. Cast speed should be on Mind instead of Dex. Arcane should just be Luck, and contribute to almost nothing in sorcery/incantation. Uninteruptability for archery/weapon skills should require Mind, since casters are getting screwed with stupid high stamina costs on spells that already cost FP. TL;DR: Melee builds should require much more stat investment to do everything with one build, while casting builds shouldn't require every stat in the game in order to accomplish anything.

                        Hi, I don't know if I'm at the right place to ask this, but I'm just wondering somthing about my current lvl and how far, I think, I'm in the game.
                        Does it sound odd to be 140 while doind Consecrated Snowfields? (Montaintop is done, Fire Giant felled)
                        Ths is my second Fromsoft game (DS3 before that) and I know it's different from the others.
                        Is my lvl coherent with my progression or did I do something wrong?
                        Thanks a lot to this really helpful website and community!

                          My character is currently around 22-25 across all stats (Bar faith and Arcane which are way lower) I am trying to keep them all at a similar level.. Am I best changing my methods? I have a lot of weapons that require 35+ strength and feel like I'm missing out.. equally I have a lot of incantations (rotten breath is one) that I'm not making use of.. It just feels like I could be missing out.. in terms of progress I have followed the user guides on here a lot and am just entering Nokron. I am new to From Software games hence this might seem like a daft question. Just after some advice from the community

                            Says under endurance maximum equip load is at lv 60 this is incorrect your equip load increases all the way to 99 at 160 equip load

                              Lmao they said this game was too hard?
                              Tbh once you've beat the story once it seems easy from there learn the boss and your own build or keep dying its that simple.

                              • There's no way Endurance Stamina Soft cap is 55. From 30 or so you get 1, 2, 1, 2 and later 1, 0, 1 or something iirc. It's just that bad. You get severe Diminishing returns from 25 Endurance. So why does it say 55?

                                    Once again the stats are way to handholdy, expecting the player to do the correct amount of chores in order to progress. Three different stats for melee, then three different stats for magic which might have worked if their extra effects were stronger or more impact full to game play. You still have to do a lot of dumping to health and carry weight if you don't want to play 100% perfect 100% of the time. resistances are spreed amount across 5 stats, so good luck not finding a few mobs that won't nuke you if you don't player a generalist of 100% perfect 100% of the time. Wanna use skills and magics, gotta dump into mana in conjunction with almost mandatory health and the damage flavor skills. If they really wanted me to try different builds they why did they hold my hand and put a list of chores in the other.

                                      Since the cap of strenght and dexterity seems to be 80, for a quality build how much difference there Is from 40/40
                                      55/55 and 80/80?

                                        Does Defese (flat reduction) apply to pvp? Cause it seem it'd make split weapons uber nerfed. Like a if opponent has 150 defence on phys and fire, a weapon with 250 fire and 350 phys damage would deal 300 when a 500 phys weapon would deal 350. A 600 AR weapon would deal quite a bit less than a 500 AR weapon? Unless it's reduced or disabled in PVP, it seems like it'd really make split weapons bad.

                                          Does Arcane have any affect on the build up speed or damage of things like Poison and Bleed? Or is what you see what you get for the value in the weapon's stats?

                                            I created an excel sheet for what portion of the attacker's damage is dealt based on the attacks damage against the defense of the one taking the hit using Dark Souls 3's formulae. I don't expect this formulae to have changed much from DS3 to Elden Ring. In fact, I somewhat expect it might be exactly the same, this would be easy to test but I'll leave it up to someone else to do the testing.

                                            The formulae for damage in from games given attack and defense have always had people complaining they're too difficult to understand. I figured having charts that you could compare the attack and defense values against would simplify things.

                                            This information is especially important for people who want to know how much is really gained or lost by having split damage vs pure damage. Since split damage separates your damage into two lower damage values that compared against 2 different defense values.

                                            Here is my excel sheet:

I'm guessing it's either how much Stamina it drains when using it, how much Stamina it takes away from the enemy when they try to block, or how much Stagger it does to enemies before putting them off-balance. Can anyone clarify please?

I’m a new player and am at level 70. I feel bricked like I can’t get passed Radahn. I fear I’ve botched all my stats. I did two respecs but things still seem wrong. Can someone help?

                                                          • Anonymous

                                                            I am kinda glad that there really isn’t any throwaway stats. Everything is viable in some way. Even the stat governing item discovery has its uses elsewhere as many spells and weapons have arcane scaling. Having equip load and stamana be under the same stat makes for slightly less tedious leveling.

                                                              Does defense only have percent based defense now? I am not sure if split damage still gives less damage as other souls games

                                                                Vigor have two softcaps, actually, at 40 you start getting about half hp per point, and at 60 it really drops, much like in other dark souls games.

                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                  Apparently, the weather system affects your defenses (10.0+-)
                                                                  E.G if you get wet from the rain, it will raise your fire defense and lower lightning defense.

                                                                  • The note about Endurance soft caps at 40 is totally incorrect according to the data from Luca which shows that the soft cap for stamina is 50 endurance and for carry capacity the soft cap is 60. There is no significant change in the amount gained per endurance at 40.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      Soft cap for Vigor is 40 then 60.
                                                                      Soft cap for Endurance is 50 for stamina and 60 for equip load.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        I wonder what the Meta will look like. Since weapons upgrade to +25 it seems the game is a lot longer than previous titles. I think the new Meta will be at a higher level. 120 will be mid-game level maybe

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          Has no one realized:
                                                                          Endurance used to give physical defense, now it gives equip load.
                                                                          Strength used to give equip load, now it gives physical defense.
                                                                          They swapped it around.
                                                                          Logically speaking and by definition of the words; it made more sense before, since to endure is to take more punishment and still last, and to have more strength would mean you'd be able to lift heavier things. But I'm assuming they changed it for balancing purposes. I hope the physical defense actually means something though, so strength isn't as weak as people make it out to be. Also with the change people seem to be getting flashbacks from DS1 with the full Havel Dex/End/Magic builds.
                                                                          In DS3 Vitality gave physical defense, but it didn't feel very noticeable to me, it was primarily used for equip load. I'm honestly glad they essentially merged vitality in with the other stats.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            What does the -(* *) numbers mean next to the fp cost in the equipment menu? Same with the attack power 117+ 14 where are these numbers drawing from?

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              It's possible that Strength and Endurance can both effect Equipment Load at different rates (probably Strength moreso than Endurance), but it's too early to tell.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                So equip load is tied to endurance now. It would be cool to add some extra casting poise for str to balance dex. This solution would make fai\int + str builds more viable.

                                                                                • Anonymous

It says very clearly that equipment load is tied to endurance. "Attribute required to wield heavy armaments" means it's a stat requirement... for heavy things... ie FGS, LKGS... ie anything that would get a heavy infusion in DS3.

                                                                                  • Just to let you all know, that due to new infomation from the outlets that have had hands-on gameplay with the final build of the game, have stated that (Stat:Strength) no longer raises maximum equipment load, that is now moved over to (Stat:Endurance).

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                        I think connecting STR and Equip Load is perfectly logical. I am saying this even as a DEX build fan... :) It's logical and simple. Also, DEX users should be fast and agile, and not taking heavy hits.

                                                                                        Connecting casting speed to DEX is less obvious, but also a good idea. Casting speed is more important if you are a battle mage, ready to go into close combat if necessary. If you would fight from afar as a mage, you can probably do it with less speed anyway.

                                                                                        I can't wait for this game to come out, and the metagame to start forming, and the discussion about builds to come to life. :)

                                                                                          People would rather put points in a equip load stat than get extra damage with it on dex builds lmao

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            Casting time in dex sounds like total mistake for me and other stats probably will not help in combat as much as heavy armor resistances. But we will se what real numbers will say :)

Im super interested in how Arcane shapes up to int and faith. Im guess it's a magical item type stat, which is why discovery is tied to it? Might make item/consumable builds viable.

Why would they make the same mistake again and put it on Dexterity? It's the only thing I disliked of all this Elden Ring information. It feels like they're dragging an awful mistake from DS1 for tradition's sake.
