Herald is a starting Class in Dark Souls 3.



A former herald who journeyed to finish a quest undertaken. Wields a sturdy spear and employs a gentle restorative miracle.

 

 

Herald Starting Equipment



 

 

Notes About This Class

  • Starts with Kite Shield, which has 100% physical block.
  • Has better starting equipment, but fewer and less powerful miracles, than the cleric.
  • Considering the 100% shield, long reach of the weapon and the small healing miracle, the Herald is a very good starting class for both new and veteran players.
  • The Herald's starting miracle, Heal Aid, heals roughly 150 hp, which is about one third of the heralds total starting hp. It is reccomended to acquire a stronger healing miracle as soon as possible.
  • Can immediately use Astora Straight Sword without leveling.

      I honestly prefer heal aid over heal because I typically only use miracles out of combat. Because heal aid heals less, you can more easily control your health so that you don't waste any healing above your maximum. When more healing doesn't go to waste, that means a single ashen estus can keep you running around a dungeon at full health for even longer before you need to touch your estus. Given all this + the far superior equipment the Herald starts with, I consider it the definitive cleric starting class.

        For those of you who don't know, not everyone is a patient player, and using spears in dark souls is underwhelming compared to the rifle spear in bloodborne. The biggest hurtle is killing Gundyr and everything else on your way to the sunlight straighsword, because the spears and halberds are for the patient, and other weapons (unless your being a troll and using sheilds) are for the aggressive and/or versatile. So unless you want to get bent over by everything on your path, forget anything you know about bloodborne's playstyle if you pick this class, and take it slow until you get the mail breaker, shortsword, or astora straightsword. Otherwise, you'll die a lot.

          If this class were to have a build, I believe the build would be a like a Paladin build because of its ability to cast miracles and wield a decent wepon early on in the game

            Get yourself the Halberd or Lucerne and a straightsword as 2nd weapon asap and this class will become instantly more fun.

              A minor tip for Herald class. they can immediately wield Astora Straight Sword without leveling requirement. Try making it into Raw +2 and you can pretty much dominate low level PvP fights and early areas.

                what do i level on herald?07 Sep 2016 14:00  

                just finished my 1st play through of dark souls 3 as warrior and went full vigor and strength build. i want to do another play through of the game but as a herald but am unsure on what to level up.

                • Use heavy spear attack03 May 2016 02:51  

                  Quite an adaptable class, has healing, a nice shield, long range weapon, and I found the strong thrust of the spear to be quick and the go to attack when not poking from behind a shield at the end of an enemy's attack.

                      Herald is not so good13 Apr 2016 15:18  

                      2 Big reasons-Starting spear garbage, poor damage poor moves set -His heal is a self heal, and a weak one at that, so no jolly coop heal

                        Herald First or Deprived First?12 Apr 2016 18:04  

                        I am interested in running both Herald and Deprived, but I'm not sure which to play as first. Any suggestions?

                              DEX/FTH?09 Apr 2016 05:40  

                              I always favoured quicker weapons instead of greatclubs etc. and I love miracles to death. How viable will DEX/FTH be you think?

                                Great starting class05 Apr 2016 01:00  

                                Has moderate STR and SKL, and FTH has always been a favorite for me. Definitely making a Paladin build with this starting class.
