Elden Ring has a variety of classes to select from. Your Tarnished can tackle the function of an Astrologer, a Bandit, a Samurai, and extra as they journey by means of The Lands Between. Modder hellgeist wasn’t happy with among the variations between classes, so that they made their very own.
Their Roleplay Classes mod is obtainable on Nexus Mods, and it makes some massive adjustments to Elden Ring’s character builder. “This mod adds a heavy armor specialist class to the game and edits some details of the other classes for roleplay purposes,” says hellgeist’s description. “The goal is to provide a couple of archetypes which seem to be absent (archer and tank) and to define the classes by names which I feel are a little more indicative of what they actually do.” To maintain the identical variety of classes, hellgeist eliminated the Samurai and changed it with the brand new Cavalier.
This is meant to be the aforementioned “tank” construct, because the Cavalier begins with extremely damage-resistant armor. The aim is to supply a category that “should never resort to rolling around,” as a substitute having the ability to stand agency and take up blows. Modder hellgeist additionally will get out forward of any complaints about this class being too simple to make use of, stating that it merely gives “an alternate way of playing the game.” That is actually true.
Along with the Cavalier come title adjustments to current classes. The Astrologer is now the Scholar, the Vagabond is now the Man at Arms, and so forth. The Bandit has develop into the Ranger, and its beginning gear has modified to replicate that. It begins with a brief sword and lengthy bow “with many more arrows,” modified from knife and brief bow.
As with any Elden Ring mod, you’re required to play the game offline to utilize this. It’s particularly vital whenever you mess with core classes on this method. Still, the identical goes for easy reskins like Link’s Master Sword and Hylian Shield or the Tree Sentinel’s horse turning into Thomas the Tank Engine.
