The Last Faith: 5 Best Tips for Beginners

The Last Faith is the latest craze in the Metrodvania game sphere. The title by Kumi Souls Games has a couple of things similar to Bloodborne and Castlevania, so there is no reinventing the wheel here. However, it adds its flourishes, which nail the gameplay. 

For veterans of the genre, the system is the same: nail down a few baddies, hop-skip your way to safety, and retrieve whatever needs retrieval. It may sound easy on paper, but The Last Faith hits it out of the ballpark. If you need a head start, we've got you. Here are the five best tips for beginners in The Last Faith.

5. Choose Your Class Wisely

Right from the get-go, you're faced with the crucial decision of picking a class, and there are four options: Rogue, Brawler, Marksman, and Stargazer. Initially, these classes might seem like they're cut from the same cloth, especially since your stats are zero. But as you level up, the real flavor of each class starts to shine through. Here's a breakdown of the classes:

The Brawler class is the beefcake of the bunch. Forget about magic spells or fancy potions; this class is all about good old muscle power. If you're the type who wants to flex those biceps and soak up hits like a human shield, the Brawler is your go-to. It's an ideal class for players yearning to exercise their raw strength and HP. This class focuses on melee combat, which is a plus for its starting stats. Players in this class start with a high-strength stat and a high health pool. If you don't want to miss a piece of the action, this class is for you.

The Stargazer class is for players who prefer to maim their adversaries from a step or two away. It is your standard Mage class, where casting spells is your primary defense. A leveled-up stargazer can cast spells consistently, but with a low health pool. On the other hand, the Rogue class emphasizes fast movement, which is excellent for players who thrive in hit-and-run tactics. The class's high Dexterity Stat supports long-range weapons, keeping you out of harm's way.

Finally, the Marksman class is all about weapons. Their main focus is ranged combat with firearms. Like the Brawler class, aside from the high Instinct stat, there's little magic here. This comes in handy when locating ammo from loot drops. Now, you can pick which class suits you best.

4. Familiarize Yourself

With your hero in hand, it's time to embark on your treacherous journey. Kumi Souls really did a number on the gothic allure brought to life through pixel art, which you can only appreciate as you move. The game takes a non-linear approach, which means you are free to roam the world. Start by having a lay of the land. This way, you can find resources and familiarize yourself with your enemies. 

Plus, you can find resources that make your commute easy, like the ring that helps you move heavy objects or the gloves and wings that let you cling to surfaces. Either way, it's a great way to kick in your new hero shoes. 

Some areas may be so inaccessible that you'll need to upgrade your abilities, like grappling hooks or double jumps. Once these set in, you can double back and explore these levels. 

Oh, and here's a pro tip: if you spot a door you want to revisit, just drop a handful of pins there. That way, you won't find yourself lost in the pixelated wilderness.

3. Grab a Healing Holster

With enemies gunning your throat each minute, it's not peculiar to get a cut or two. The game gives you a set of second chances with Healing Injections, its primary healing item. You may find the injections as drops after defeating an enemy. Alternatively, you can purchase them from vendors.  

Grab a Healing Holster, and you can stash two more Healing Injections. You never know when the next vendor will show up or when the next defeated enemy will drop a life-saver. So, a healing holster helps you play it safe. 

Plus, the more chances you have of healing, the better your chances of taking down a boss. To find it, you must locate a locked chest that unlocks after completing a puzzle.

2. Level Up


Leveling up is your only chance of transforming your character into a formidable weapon. You'll have access to different stats and attributes based on your class choice. These may include Strength, Mind, Vitality, Instinct, Fate, Health, and Dexterity. You must speak to Helenya, who trades your Nycrux for amped abilities or stats. 

Yes, everything comes at a price. So, to level up, you must sacrifice your hard-earned in-game currency. If you go for the Brawler class, I'd recommend enhancing your Vitality and Strength stats. Stargazers can opt for the Mind stats since Magic Spells are your primary attack style. 

You can find Helenya outside Oxnevylle's manor. The manor is home to the fast-travel altars, so you don't have to worry about getting a skill at the right time. 

1. Fight, Fight, Fight!

Boss battles in The Last Faith are intense and require a lot of strategy. Each boss has distinct attack patterns and weaknesses, requiring you to analyze and exploit these nuances to succeed. Success in combat is not solely dependent on raw power; it also hinges on understanding your character's abilities and ability to adapt to evolving challenges.

Combat is a hack-and-slash affair with a blend of melee weapons, including scythes and whips. The game has a surprising amount of variety with its weapons. For instance, apply oil to your blade to give it elemental powers.

Moreover, you can use the parry feature to earn mana points and restore Eryk's health. If you're defeated in battle, you lose all your Nycrux. And if you use a save point, it respawns your enemies.
