Bandit Starting Equipment



Notes About This Class

  • The Bandit is as straightforward as classes get in Dark Souls. High Vitality, Endurance, and Strength leaves no questions regarding its use.
  • Much like the Warrior, the Bandit is also better for pure Dexterity builds than the classes that start with high Dexterity, due to many Dexterity weapons needing at least a little Strength to equip and use one-handed and the Bandit's fewer wasted stats in other areas.
  • It is possible to put levels into Faith and Attunement for miracles and Faith-scaling weaponry, but the Cleric does Strength+Faith builds better. The Bandit is better off using purely Strength or combining Strength and Dexterity.


Builds That Use This Class

  • Along with the Warrior, the Bandit is one of two classes that can pull off the 50 Vitality, 40 Endurance, 40 Strength, 40 Dexterity build at level 125. This build is highly versatile and can use a great variety of weapons without giving up anything in defenses, letting it handle just about anything in the game without much effort.
