What Are Attribute Soft Caps in Elden Ring?

Once you know what every attribute does in Elden Ring, you’ll need to know more about increasing them. Attribute soft caps in Elden Ring mean that increasing a stat past a certain point won’t be very effective.

The system is a bit complicated but to simplify it, we will use an example. Leveling up Vigor increases your total HP. Raising it from level 1 to 20 will make your HP go from 100 to 200.

However, increasing vigor from 20 to 60 will only increase your total HP up to 250. This is because there is a soft cap at level 40, making each level you put into it after that much less effective.

Finally, there is also another soft cap for Vigor at level 60, making it almost pointless to bring the stat above the highest soft cap. Even if you completely max out Vigor, you will only get another 10 HP for 39 levels!

"However, increasing vigor from 20 to 60 will only increase your total HP up to 250." Absolutely wrong... 20 Vigor = 685 HP 60 Vigor = 1900 HP
