Deprived is a starting Class in Dark Souls 3.




Naked and of unknown origin. Either an unimaginable fool in life, or was stripped of possessions upon burial.

Notes About This Class

  • Balanced stat and starts with Soul Level 1.
  • While weak at first, you can eventually develop your desired stat pretty easily.
  • For early weapon and armor, you may go for Master's Attire and Uchigatana.
  • Good balaced class for trying builds but is rarely optimal for min / maxing.
    • Having every stat start at 10 means other classes with more focused distribution will often times lead to better optimization depending on builds.
    • This is a similar issue with the deprived class in previous DS games.

      The single best class in the game for experienced players, if you're doing a melee build. It's like 9 free levels if you can get past Gundyr. Perfectly usable for a sorcerer build, too, though if you want to run a Pyromancer or a Faith build, you might prefer a class that actually starts with the proper catalyst.

        Much more competent initially than the DS2 Deprived. Stats are high enough all-around that you can wield a surprising number of weapons and spells without multiple stat investments, and the Club is a perfectly usable starter weapon. Not really sure how I feel about that. DS3 Deprived is certainly less of a pain to get going--if you've beat Gundyr, you're pretty much in the clear--but I almost like how much harder DS2 Deprived makes you work to get moving.

        Or I would if your first 10-20 level in DS2 didn't go to Adaptability.

            I ended up preferring this class to the others, even when another class would be better tailored to what I want to end up pulling off in the earlier game. It's not that difficult once you're used to the game, and I like that it starts out balanced and reasonably not-trash at every stat. Gives you some leeway if you want to modify your stats a bit later on

              For some reason, I get my butt whooped when starting with the other classes but with Deprived I just go full Conan on everyone’s asses.

                Weird comments in this section.

                Deprived allows you to switch builds easily and be 95% as effective with them as their most optimized class. Look, at SL 125 a deprived can use the Prisoner's Chain and have 40 VIG, 40 END, 33 VIT, 66 STR in addition to 10 in every other stat. That's a potent Strength build right there. Or at that same SL the deprived can have 40 VIG, 34 ATT, 40 END, 15 VIT and 60 INT with 10 in the remaining stats. Now you've got a legitimate Sorcerer build.

                Deprived can't min max but it can do everything well, which is suitable for players who don't want multiple characters.

                  Deprived is best hands down for anything. Unless you are going for pvp. If you pvp and like to limit yourself due to other peoples wants and thoughts then pick another class. pvp scrubs think they own every game that has a pvp element. Sorry no. Pvp in games is for little*****s who are cowards in real life. You want pvp? Join the *****ing military. then you can pvp in real life.

                    This is the most versatile class, its logical leveling up is more a matter of the level mobs and NPCs requirements rather what a classical build encourages you to prioritize as a specialized class

                        Naked, afraid and making us of what you find along the journey. This is the true way to start Dark Souls.

                          For optimization purposes, well… Hum, think carefully before choosing the deprived class. Because it is made only for very specific builds, and require a good planification to allocate the stats. Here an example : Anri's sword is know to be a pure LCK weapon, so we naturally think it will fit the thief class. BUT you need 10 STR, the deprived has them, the thief lack 1 point; you need 10 DEX, the deprived has them, but the thief has too much DEX (13), not Worth the poor scaling and you can neglect the faith scaling. Because notably of the too high dex of the thief, I would choose the deprived for a future optimization of a anri-build.

                            You can use the club the stagger the crystal lizard at the start of the game, every 4 hits staggers then touch his belly, rinse ,repeat

                              After discovering that Rosaria has a respec glitch I always pick this class. It allows a clean switch to anything given you have the equipment. "Shapeshifter" Class!
