Elden Ring is an immersive role-playing game with nearly limitless customization for The Tarnished during your journey through the Lands Between. Aside from armor and weapons, the primary way Elden Ring allows you to personalize your character is with eight Attributes that can be increased with Runes.

These Stats aren’t without limits, however. Each Attribute has multiple Soft Caps that, when reached, will cause diminishing returns for additional Runes spent on them. Below are the Soft Caps for each Attribute in Elden Ring.

Vigor

Vigor is the Attribute that affects Health Points along with the Fire Resistance and Immunity Stats.

  • Level one to 40 – HP gain increases from four to 48
  • First Soft Cap: Level 40 – HP gain decreases from 26 to 13
