Classes for beginners
The Vagabond : It is the most robust of all, it is well equipped, with good weapons. It can immediately be played with the very comfortable sword and shield combo for beginners as well as for experts. It can also be played with the Hallebarde, to gain stretching and attacking power. Subsequently, it can be used for almost any type of build of the game, making it a solid and universal base. Just remember to remove weapons that you do not use in order to avoid being afflicted by overload of equipment.
An alternative is the Samurai : Rather robust and equipped with a katana, it is formidable in melee. However, it prefers rolls and dodges more than the default shield, which is a good thing if you want to prepare for bosses and PvP. It has an excellent bow from the start, which opens up a lot of gameplay possibilities if you prefer to make use of this type of weapon. The bow makes it possible to shoot down some enemies of a group before engaging in combat, or to face a boss taking much less risks. It’s also classy to be in samurai amure.
A radically different approach is to play Mage. This is generally considered the easy mode in Dark Souls, and Elden Ring is no exception, especially with the addition of summons and the horse. By selecting the Astrologer or the Prisoner, you will be very fragile at first, but after a few levels to increase your life, you should generally not encounter too many difficulties, at least compared to other classes.
Finally, the Confessor is an excellent choice too, since he offers a character with high attributes, a good equipment with a shield and above all: an emergency care spell. It is a fantastic complement to the healing potions that are very limited at the outset.

Alternatively, you can choose to bet on Incantations. This includes pyromancy techniques and even draconian abilities in Elden Ring, so this field promises to be incredibly rich, and that it is not limited to the miracles of previous games. It remains to determine exactly what awaits us at the high level, but it is certainly not limited to playing caretaker or support.

There is also the Bandit, which can be an interesting choice for an exotic build based on jets of explosive pots, daggers and others. Or, it can also take the path of draconian spells for example. There are plenty of options, and the game’s builds are expected to be as many as rich, so don’t feel constrained by your class.
