Lords of the Fallen has been released, and the Crusaders should be ready to begin the journey in Axiom and Umbral.

  • There are a total of 13 classes in Lords of the Fallen, among which four are secret ones.
  • The nine classes are ranked in accordance with their worth. 
  • The best one is Paristan, as it has the perfect points allocation and a variety of weapons.

CONDEMNED STATS VALUE
Strength 9
Agility 9
Endurance 9
Vitality 9
Radiance 9
Inferno 9

Condemned is arguably the worst class, not just for the beginners but overall, in Lords of the Fallen. I would not recommend you pick Condemned, as it has the worst stats among all the other classes. Codemned starts with absolutely nothing except for an armor set and a bucket. All stats are also at nine, so if you choose it, you would be at a huge disadvantage from the start.

  • Good for pro players. 
  • Features a wooden bucket as a weapon.
  • All stats are at 9.

8- Pyric Cultist

The Best Class For Inferno Build.

PYRIC CULTIST STATS VALUE
Strength 9
Agility 8
Endurance 11
Vitality 9
Radiance 8
Inferno 18

I personally don’t like magic builds in any Soulsbourne or Soulslike game, but that is not the reason why Pyric Cultist is the second-worst class in-game. While it is nothing close to being the Lord of the Fallen Best Class, it is surely not the worst. It focuses on dealing with damage, as the most leveled-up stat is Inferno, making it the best class for Inferno build. 

I don’t think Pyric Cultist is even among the Lords of the Fallen best class for beginners. While it can deal a lot of damage in the early game, it might become trouble for you later on.

  • Allow players to deal good damage from the start. 
  • It will be difficult for players to clear early areas with the class.

7- Udirangar Warwolf

The Best Class For Strength Build.

UDIRANGAR WARWOLF STATS VALUE
Strength 16
Agility 10
Endurance 13
Vitality 10
Radiance 8
Inferno 8

While the name Udirangar Warwolf is a little intimidating, the class is not that intimidating in the battle. It is a great class, with most points being in Strength. It makes it a high-damage class, but it is not ideal to start Lords of the Fallen for the first time. Due to that, I consider it the best class for strength build.

I also liked the experience with it, as I have played almost every game from a similar genre. However, if you are not that familiar with such games, then I would not recommend you choose Udirangar Warwolf. The reason alone for it to be ranked low in my list is that the class should be welcoming to newcomers. 

  • Allows you to wield heavy weapons.
  • Focuses on dealing high damage. 
  • Heavy hitting leaves you open to hits.

6- Orian Preacher

ORIAN PREACHER STATS VALUE
Strength 10
Agility 8
Endurance 9
Vitality 11
Radiance 18
Inferno 8

While Orian Preacher can be a good class if played correctly, it is definitely not the best class. As said before, I don’t like mage classes, but that is not the reason why Orian Preacher is ranked low. While it can be a good class for beginners, it makes the experience a little boring. The main focus for Orian Preacher is on Radiance, making it the best class for Radiance build.

If you want to choose Orian Preacher, then make sure to allocate some points to endurance in vitality first. There are some places where the same type of enemies are present in large quantities, so that might become troublesome for you given that Orian Preacher has really low Endurance and Vitality.

  • Focuses on offense and defense. 
  • Tons of Radiance spells and weapons are available.
  • Boring playstyle.

5- Exiled Stalker

The Best Class For Agility Build.

EXILED STALKER STATS VALUE
Strength 9
Agility 16
Endurance 11
Vitality 11
Radiance 8
Inferno 8

Exlied Stalker is a class for players who are looking to play a little bit faster than other classes. The class is arguably one of the best-looking or probably the best-looking in-game. I really liked the looks of it, but it falls behind the stats tremendously. The main focus of Exiled Stalker is on Agility, so if you are going for an agility build, it is the best class for that.

The low damage is a problem, but that can be solved by allocating more points in Strength at the start. Make sure to allocate some points in Vitality, too, for some extra health.

  • Best looking class in-game.
  • Makes the run interesting. 
  • Lacks high damage.

4- Mournstead Infantry

The Best Well Balanced Class In Game.

MOURNSTEAD INFANTRY STATS VALUE
Strength 12
Agility 14
Endurance 12
Vitality 11
Radiance 8
Inferno 8

Mournstead Infantry is for those who don’t like mage builds but still try to play a little safe. You have a spear and a shield as starting weapons, so you can poke the opponents while also defending yourself. The stats distribution is not the best, but it is also not the worst. You get enough Strength, Agility, and Endurance in the start, making it the best well-rounded class in-game.

I prefer Exiled Stalker more than Mournstead Infantry due to my personal preference. However, Mournstead Infantry is better due to its stats points, armor set, and weapons.  While the class is pretty good for a beginner, it is not the best one and definitely not the best-looking one.

  • The class is well-balanced. 
  • Features good starting weapons.
  • Less points in vitality.

3- Blackfeather Ranger

The Best Alternative For Mournstead Infantry In Game.

BLACKFEATHER RANGER STATS VALUE
Strength 11
Agility 13
Endurance 11
Vitality 10
Radiance 8
Inferno 8

The Blackfeather Ranger class is a great all-rounder class in Lords of the Fallen that can be great for beginners. It is arguably a great class, and I really loved it. The looks are pleasing, too, but it just doesn’t have the best stats. There should be more points in Vitality and Strength; then it would have been way better. If you didn’t like the previous class then it is the best alternative for that.

While I still think Exiled Stalker looks the best among all, Blackfeather Ranger does look like the most badass one. On top of that, it is an all-rounder class

  • Starting weapons are good.
  • Stats allocation is great.
  • Cool starting armor. 
  • Low vitality and strength.

2- Hallowed Knight

My Personal Best Class In Game.
Hallowed-Knight-Class

HALLOWED KNIGHT STATS VALUE
Strength 12
Agility 8
Endurance 15
Vitality 11
Radiance 9
Inferno 8

The Hallowed Knight class is arguably one of the most badass-looking and best classes. It can be the best choice as a class for beginners in Lords of the Fallen, as the allocation of points is pretty good. On top of that, the armor, weapons, and starting items you get with it are pretty good, too. With that said, Hallowed Knight is my personal favorite class in-game.

I personally played the most with Hallowed Knight, as it was a really great experience. I didn’t have much trouble with the tutorial boss and instantly defeated him (only in the first phase) with parries and some heavy strikes.

  • The weapon and shield are great.
  • The armor is great, too.
  • Stats allocation is also reasonable. 
  • It has no cons.

1- Partisan

The Best Class In Game.

PARTISAN STATS VALUE
Strength 13
Agility 12
Endurance 12
Vitality 12
Radiance 8
Inferno 8

Patrisan takes the throne of being the best class in Lords of the Fallen for normal players and beginners. While it is not the best-looking one, it is the most balanced class in-game. You can always buy different armor sets to make your character look later in Lords of the Fallen. The armor is just not good-looking; for defense, it is pretty good, especially against the first boss.

The weapons it comes with are a flail, crossbow, and a shield. So you can fight in close range and even in the long range. Partisan gives you freedom over deciding which way you want to take your character, except for the magic build.

  • It features great armor and weapons.
  • The stats allocation is perfect.
  • Best class for beginners.
  • I don’t think there are cons of the class.

Other Honorable Mentions

Here are some other classes in Lords of the Fallen that we did not include in the guide but are worth mentioning:

  • Dark Crusader: A decent choice with high Vitality, but lacks in the ranged department.
  • Lord: A great option that has high inferno and strength, but low radiance.

Which Class Is The Best – My Thoughts

Lords-of-the-Fallen-Best-Class

I personally think Hallowed Knight is the best class you can select due to its gear and stats allocation. You can select any you want, but I had the best experience with Hallowed Knight. While I liked the gameplay of Exiled Stalker the most, along with the appearance, I still think Hallowed Knight is best. At first, I simply wielded the Hallowed sword in both hands and destroyed a bunch of mobs.

Honestly, I didn’t have trouble with the first boss. It might be because I am a veteran in such games. However, the class definitely played an important role. You can choose the Mage class, too, if you like them.

That’s almost everything you would want to know about the Lords of the Fallen Best Class. While not all the classes are worth your time, there are some that definitely deserve to be chosen. Hallowed Knight, Partisan, and Exiled Stalker are my pick for the best ones. You can select any based on your preference so you can have more fun. If you prefer a mage class, then go for Orian Preacher and build it accordingly for some massive damage. I don’t think Pyric Cultist is worth going for, even as a mage class, so ignore it.
