Bloodborne is a difficult game in many ways, so it's important that you level up your character to increase your survivability. In this article, we will explain how to do so in the game and how to prioritize different attributes.
The most important thing to know is that there are a number of different stats in the game, and they all have their own benefits. For example, Vitality increases your maximum health, which gives you the ability to stay alive longer in battles. Similarly, the Endurance stat increases how much you can attack and dodge before becoming exhausted, giving you the ability to take on more enemies without having to rest.
Additionally, the Skill stat determines how much damage you can deal with weapons, and if you choose to use certain weapon types, it's essential that you prioritize this statistic. There are other stats that provide other benefits, such as resistance to various status-based effects.
To level up, you'll need Blood Echoes, the primary in-game currency that can be earned by defeating enemies and bosses. You can get Blood Echoes from enemies as drops, but the best way to earn them is by fighting and defeating bosses. Once you have enough Blood Echoes, you can visit the Doll in the Hunter's Dream and begin allocating them to your chosen stats.
It's important to remember that there is a limit to how much you can level up in Bloodborne, and at a certain point, the game will stop increasing your stats. The first level cap is around 25, and from there, your gains will decrease until you reach level 99.
