No Rest for the Wicked: Weight Classes, Explained

No Rest for the Wicked features Weight Classes that determine how quick your dodge roll is. Here’s what you need to know about them.

Unlike most ARPGs, No Rest for the Wicked has a unique spin on classes. One of the major differences is how it handles weight. Your character has its own Weight Class, which affects several factors, including your dodge roll. However, it can be difficult to understand how they work or even how to change which Weight Class you are. Fortunately, we’ve broken it down for you below.

How Do Weight Classes Work in No Rest for the Wicked?

There are three Weight Classes in No Rest for the Wicked: Light, Normal, and Heavy. Your Weight Class changes depending on the type of armor and weapons you are using. The heavier the gear, the heavier your Weight Class will be. Your Weight Class will mainly affect your character’s overall speed, including attack speed, how quick your dodge roll is, and how far it will take you.

The Light Weight Class has the best dodge roll. It doesn’t require too much stamina and will move you quite the distance. It’s also the perfect class for pulling off quick combos and unleashing a flurry of deadly blows against your enemy. While your overall defense will be low, and your strength won’t be particularly high, it’s perfect for those who want to be as nimble as possible.

No Rest for the Wicked combat

The Normal Weight Class is the most balanced. You’ll move relatively quickly, your dodge roll will still get you out of harms way, and you’ll be able to equip armor that provides plenty of defense. It’s not as fast as the Light Class, and certainly not as strong as the Heavy, but will offer the most traditional experience fans can expect. We would definitely recommend sticking to this Weight Class, especially if you’re finding combat to be a little tricky.

Finally, the Heavy Weight Class is incredibly slow. Your dodge roll will barely move you, and your attack speed will be quite slow. This Class typically favors heavy armor and two-handed weapons. If you’re putting on the best gear, you’re likely going to end up in the Heavy Weight Class. It’s certainly a viable option, especially for those who want to prioritize strength above all else. However, we don’t really recommend it, especially to newcomers. So, if you see your Weight Class shift into Heavy, it’s maybe worth switching your armor.

How to Change Your Weight Class in No Rest for the Wicked

To change your Weight Class in No Rest for the Wicked, you’ll need to switch the gear you have equipped. The heavier the gear, the heavier your Weight Class will be. However, only the gear you have actually equipped will affect your Weight Class. Anything in your inventory does not count towards your total weight.

You can also change your Weight Class by investing in the Equip Load stat. Every point you put into the Equip Load will increase your character’s overall inventory weight by 10 points. This means that you can wear heavier armor but still remain in the Light Weight Class, keeping your faster dodge roll. So, if you want to wear the best armor but don’t want the heavier roll, then you’ll need to invest as much as you can into the Equip Load stat.
