Shadow of the Erdtree throws you into the nightmarish zone of Dreamveil, where enemies scale far beyond the base game’s endgame. Here’s where your level comes in:

  • Level 120-130: This range provides a solid foundation. Enemies will be tough, but with well-honed skills and strategic use of Ashes of War and Spirit Summons, you can overcome them.
  • Level 150+: This is the sweet spot. You’ll have ample stats to handle the Dreamveil’s brutality while still experiencing a tough challenge. This is the level range players who participated in the developer preview event were placed. Also, this level enables you to play co-op and PvP invasions.
  • Level 160-200: This level will be slightly more than the recommended 150 mark. You will find it tough to get friends and players to play with in co-op.
