Lords of the Fallen (2023) Max Level: Level Cap


Reaching the maximum level in Lords of the Fallen is no easy task. However, those who want to reach the highest heights may find that there may be a level cap that sets the limit on how strong they can become. What’s really important are the stat boosts you get from leveling up that have soft caps.

What is the maximum level in Lords of the Fallen?

Lords of the Fallen technically has no maximum level limit so that, in theory, you can level up forever. It is important to note that stats do not automatically increase per level and you must assign points manually. The problem is when you hit the soft limits of each stat that gives you diminishing returns.

Stat Limits Breakdown:

  1. Damage and magic stats:
    • Softcover: 50/75
    • Maximum limit: 100 (although, beyond 75, the benefit is limited)
  2. Vitality and Stamina Stats:
    • Softcover: 40/60
    • Maximum limit: 100 (but can increase beyond this; profits are minimal)

There are six stats each in Lords of the Fallen and each of them has a hard cap of 100. Because of this, you will only reach around level 540 at best, even if you choose the class with the lowest stats, Doomed, which starts at level 1 and already has every stat at 9. Once you reach level 540, depending on the class you choose, you will no longer be able to invest in the stats due to reaching the maximum limit.

It takes quite a while to reach level 100 in Lords of the Fallen and you don’t need to max out your character to finish the game. Pay attention to Lords of the Fallen’s soft stat caps so you know which attribute you want to increase each time you spend valuable Vigor to level up.

How to level up

  1. Focus initially on your main stat of damage, vitality, and stamina.
  2. Balance these stats up to 75 damage and 60 vitality/stamina.
  3. Then, assign points to other damage types until they reach 75.
  4. From there, increase everything to 100.
  5. Any additional points can be distributed between vitality and stamina beyond 100. But remember, the benefits are minimal.

You can level up any Vestige by spending Vigor you gain from defeating enemies, selling items to vendors, or consuming Vigor Skulls. In Upgrade Character you will see how much Vigor is required to level up in the upper left corner of the screen represented by a purple bar.

Your character’s level and stats will carry over to New Game Plus. Although the stamina required to level up once you reach higher levels will be more demanding. You will have to carefully manage which stat you want to increase based on your build. You can respec your stats by talking to Pieta in the center after you have defeated her boss form. However, it will cost you Rebirth Chrysalis, which sells for 8000 Vigor in Molhu in the Umbral Realm, or if you’re lucky, you can find it by traveling.

It is a challenge to level up in Lords of the Fallen since dying means losing all the stamina you carry. You can acquire it again if you manage to return to the place where you died, but if you die again before doing so, it will disappear forever. To avoid this, you will have to level up any Vestige whenever the opportunity presents itself.
