Confessor Starting Weapons

The Confessor class in Elden Ring starts with a Broadsword as their main offensive weapon. This sword does decent damage and comes with the Square Off skill which lines up a quick running attack against your opponent that can do big damage.

The Confessor also starts with the Blue Crest Heater Shield which is one of the best starting shields in the game! This shield is so powerful that it absorbs 100% of incoming physical damage as long as you block properly and maintain your stamina. This shield alone makes the Confessor a great class for new players in Elden Ring.

Finally, the Confessor class also comes equipped with a Finger Seal which is what allows you to cast Faith-based magic spells called Incantations.

Elden Ring Confessor Starting Armor

The Confessor class in Elden Ring starts with the Confessor Armor set which includes the Confessor Hood, Confessor Armor, Confessor Gloves and Confessor Boots. These armor pieces provide a decent amount of overall protection while also resulting in a medium equip load.

Elden Ring Starting Spells

The Confessor class starts off with access to two basic Incantations: Urgent Heal and Assassin’s Approach. 

The Urgent Heal spell provides a quick self heal for a small amount of FP while Assassin’s Approach reduces your Fall Damage as well as your detection radius against nearby enemies.
