        Honestly, I would go with the Knight class because it's pretty suitable for the Index Gundyr fight and you get that sweet long sword along with it. The luck sucks but when you level your luck up you just get 1 item discovery stat, when you could just go get a Covetous Gold Serpent Ring at the Profaned Capitol. Plus, you can just go murder some mimics for the Symbol of Avarice, but just be careful for the grabbing attack. The only downside is that the knight doesn't have high intelligence or faith, neither does he have a lot of FP, so like if you want long range attacks and good heals from miracles, then you best choose sorcerer, cleric, or herald for that stuff. You can always reallocate your stats at Rosaria in the Cathedral of the Deep anyway and you should have a sustainable amount of status points (which is 99 in the beginning). Good luck!

          For one's first playthrough I think deprived is best. You get the most freedom in stats to see where you wanna go

            For me my favorites are : DS1 Pyromancer, DS2.. we don't talk about that one unless I must (Sorcerer), DS3 Thief (more my style) or Pyromancer.

            Just pick what you like or want to be, you can make anything work.

            • Mercenary pretty much carried me through my first playthrough, you can use sellswords throughout the entire game. Though, for experience players (unless doing a mage/pyromancer/miracle build) you should pick deprived, as it lets you get some cheaper levels and is a lot more well rounded.

                    personally prefer the deprived for starting at lvl 1 with all stats at 10. but since they start with the worst equipment i advise to only pick that class if you are familiar with dark souls, for newcomers i recommend the knight, offers a good defense and survivability to get used to dark souls, Warrior is also okay if you know you want to pick the heaviest weapons and armors you can find.

                    which leads me to believe mage classes are in the medium range, wouldn't recommend them for newcomers, but otherwise an acceptable choice if you learned the basics in dark souls. but i'm no user of intelligence or faith builds, so i don't know.

                      Every class serves a purpose except for Assassin. No build requires min-maxing with Assassin. Don't pick Assassin.

                        Just find a weapon you wanna use then pick the class which puts yo closest to the requirements.

                        Stop worrying you can change most of your stats later anyway

                          The first time I beat a DS game, DS 2, I used the knight class with a bastard sword. It's a good combo of solid armor to keep you alive and heavy weapon with a simple moveset that's easy to master. I use this build for the first couple runs with every DS game I play, and would recommend it to any new player.
