Namco Bandai shared a clearer look at the ten classes in Dark Souls. Here’s a look at each of them.
Warrior – a fearless warrior and weapon expert with high strength, and dexterity.
Knight – a low-ranking knight with high HP and solid armor that is not easily toppled.
Wanderer – an aimless wanderer with high dexterity that wields a scimitar.
Thief - a guilt-ridden thief who deals high critical hits and has a Master Key.
Bandit – a savage bandit with high strength and wields a battle axe.
Hunter – a bow-wielding hunter who can handle close-range combat, but is vulnerable to magic.
Sorcerer – casts soul sorceries and from the Dragon School.
Pyromancer – casts fire spells and wields a hand axe.
Cleric – casts healing miracles and wields a mace.
Deprived – unclothed and starts the game with a club and old plank shield.
Ah, the poor deprived class with only a loincloth for armor. Dark Souls lets player customize their character’s face and body type. New characters don’t start the game empty handed. In addition to basic weapons, players get to pick a present.
