Elden Ring Stat Caps: All Attributes & Soft Caps

Check out my guide to learn all about the stat caps, how they work, and how to design builds using them in Elden Ring.

Elden Ring stat caps represent the values at which the benefits of leveling up an attribute decrease by a bit. That is why a lot of the best builds in Elden Ring stop leveling specific stats at the soft cap. Due to this, the builds become versatile and efficient, which in my opinion will help you overcome most of the bosses and enemies.

Key Takeaways
  • Elden Ring stat caps represent the values at which leveling up an attribute provides fewer benefits.
  • These caps exist to balance the game and to avoid game-breaking builds.
  • There are multiple soft caps for an attribute, each decreasing the benefit given to the player upon leveling.
  • Players should focus on leveling their damage-dealing attributes until the second soft cap.
  • Doing this will allow you to focus on your vital stats, such as Vigor, Mind, and Endurance.
  • Knowledge of the attribute caps in Elden Ring will allow you to make extremely powerful and versatile builds.

In Elden Ring, leveling up an attribute gives an increment to its effectiveness. After reaching a certain threshold on an attribute, leveling it up further will provide fewer benefits. This threshold is known as a soft cap. Players plan out their builds while keeping stat caps in view.

There are multiple soft caps for an attribute, each lowering the benefit provided upon leveling up. I have listed All Elden Ring stat caps below.

  • Also, the hard cap for all attributes is 99.

How To Plan Builds Using Soft Caps

In Elden Ring, builds usually specialize around 1 or 2 damage-dealing attributes. I recommend that you level your damage-dealing attributes to the second soft cap value.
