Vigor is one of the Stats in Elden Ring. Stats 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. Vigor primarily affects a player's HP or Health Points and is one of the 8 Main Attributes that players can spend Runes on to level up, increasing the Stat's effectiveness and influencing their relative secondary stats. Stats such as Vigor are an important aspect of character progression in Elden Ring.

Elden Ring Vigor Notes & Tips
- Vigor is one of the most important attributes for endurance combat builds. Having more HP means having more room for mistakes during combat.
- The general consensus is to have 35-40 Vigor by the time you reach Mountaintops of the Giants, to not die in one hit, then 50+ Vigor by the end of the game. Player skill and different playstyles can allow players to get by with a lower amount.
