Best Hero Builds in Elden Ring: Weapons, Armor Sets, and More

In this guide, I will show you the Top 3 best Hero builds in Elden Ring that you can start with from the very beginning.

Elden Ring is about a ring to rule all. No, not The Lord of the Rings’ story but the vibes kind of hold it quite a lot. The agonizing pain is worth it for the scaling expectation that you, kind sir, have been seeking. FromSoftware, you pulled your ace this time.

Elden Ring can also be defined as a Soul-franchise rip-off but has evolved more than any other hotcakes from the other Soul-stuffs. I have already discussed how to be the Elden Lord from being Tarnished to Mighty by being a Warrior. So let’s give you the taste of a Hero today.

Hero Class Stats

Hello there, Ashen one. As Bonnie Tyler said, ‘I need a hero…He is gotta be strong, and he’s gotta be fast,’ does it resemble you a bit? No worries; if she can hold it till the end of the night, you will be sure to reach out to her before the time runs out. Now, if you are fresher, Hero class might be the perfect choice for you to roam in this wretched dominion.

Hero class mainly focuses on strength from the very beginning. That can be dictated for AP and to equip heavy armor that will come to a significant advantage in the later phase of Elden Ring. Along with that, Vigor will take care of your maximum HP with resistance. For more stamina than the other classes, Endurance comes with a bash to take care of your robustness.

Hero Class Starting Stats:

Below stats will be with you at the very beginning. Let’s have a look at these:

  • Strength: 16
  • Vigor: 14
  • Endurance: 12
  • Weapon: Battle Axe
  • Shield: Large Leather Shield
  • Armor: Champion set

Why you should play Hero Class in Elden Ring?

You will have plenty of options with starting weapons. Think of the Colossal weapons. Leave it there; you will be able to get your hands on Lordsworns’ Greatsword as well. Sounds good, right? Well, for an aggressive class like this, the assertive playstyle is inevitable. Invest in yourself, and you will be found being in battle with yielding two-handed weapons in no time.

There are also some attack-based Ashes that go perfectly with the Hero class. A Hero can utilize it to the fullest capacity. Also, you will have plenty of choices in Talisman.
