        There's no tree for the three headed dragon fight which is total bullshit. But yeah it's great how your sign just shows up at any martyr effigy you activated now. I made a new character that went and picked out specific tree's for maximum coop fun. I did that specifically because my other character kept getting summoned for Fire Giant and I got really sick of that fricker.

          Me and a host learned this the hard way when we tried to jump over the rocks but just kept getting teleported back.
          Both of my characters are above lv170 so I mostly just fight the endgame bosses and the occasional NG+ demigod boss, as well as a couple of catacombs.

          You have to kill Maliketh, the summon pool is assigned for both bosses.

          I've beaten the game several times. It's a smooth shape but it's not a shape shared by the Elden Beast, doesn't have it's limbs or distintive tail. The little protrusion could be the neck but the ratio is completely different. Does that imply the Godskins know about the Elden Beast? I suppise that makes sense given their seeming allignment with Ranni and Rykard

            >Does that imply the Godskins know about the Elden Beast?
            Doubtful. Godskins derive power from killing gods and wearing their skin like some 6 walking way stuff from the elder scrolls. Finding out what the elden beast is robs the golden order of any power if the godskins knew it was just some ayy they wouldn't want to kill it or skin it the power is in the illusion of what it is if you see what it really is it doesn't have any real effect. The people that have rejected the grace have already rejected the beast and prove it has no real power.

            Yeah the shape is completely different than whats on the cape.

            It's not, it is the elden beast you can see the hallway leading into where the ring is in the lower circle.

              Its still a God and a powerful one. Realizing it's not a true deity seems like the perfect excuse to try and kill it for its power. How would the village come to learn of it if not from the Apostle when he's the only other anomaly in the village? The only peopke who know of and despise the Greater Wills nature are all in the company of Godskins.

                I only grind when I'm at th very end of the game to get my levels all to nice numbers ending in 0 or 5. At that point, a few extra levels grinded out isnt going to change how the last bosses go
                It bothers me greatly, though, that if all of the skills are at 0 and 5, then your total level will end in 1. Why couldn't they start stats at 0?

                He's a moron with poor reading comprehension not much else to say
                As someone who's done thousands of invasions across multiple souls-like games, in a 3v1 in Elden Ring against a gank squad who use the most abusive stuff (spell/L2 spamming, sleep/madness status, etc) you have little to no chance unless you have some enemies for them to run into or if you have your own overpowered L2 to shit on them with (like bloodboon)
                That's just the name of the game, and tbh it's always been like this, invaders are a nuisance, they are part of the challenge of the level and in a more organic setting (i.e. you're not in audience chamber cave getting blendered by shitters) you can do pretty good, it's just that Elden Ring's balance is obviously full of crutches for newbies to use and abuse because FromSoft wanted to make the game more accessible with various ez mode builds, which translates to people who just wanna win no matter what using weapons / spells that are both brain dead and highly effective

                Yeah that's a big gripe with Elden Ring. Weapon arts kind of ruines build identity.

You complain about people playing meta instead of "having fun" but you want to get away with sloppy, unimaginative and bland playstyle that doesn't even try to incorporate some proper tactics to actually gain the advantage as invader, like crossbows, bows, pots, Night Maiden Mist,...
                It has nothing to do with meta or not, you don't want to do any effort, rather want the mod to become watered down ibto overglorified R1 rollcatches.

                They don't know how to carry an actual conversation so they rely on gimmicks to keep posting counts high. Using a gimmick ad nauseum makes the gimmick very noticeable. 720panon is the most to noticeable because it is the same series of webms over and over again.
                And then he started resizing them after anons started making fun of him which was a mistake, after that it was confirmed he really was the same guy spamming all the 720 webms and took the bants personal.

                Its no different than a post saying they wanted a different ending. It is meaningless as a post.

                STUPID QUESTION how do I infuse a weapon, with Heavy or something, WITHOUT fricking around with it's ash of war? The menu makes me choose a new Ash before I can select the infusion, and I haven't bought the ash that came with it. I don't want to replace the default ash and I don't see a "keep the current one" option. Am I fricking stupid? Am I getting trolled? How do I infuse a weapon without changing it's ash of war? This seems like something I should be able to do. It should be a separate menu.

                You just leave the ash as the same and then go to the infusion screen after. If it is a special weapon with no Ash slot I don't think you can infuse it.

        The invasion mechanic was always stupid, I'm glad Fromsoft is starting to put the odds in the favor of the host. If builds were transferable between PVE and PVP then it would be a different story but you typically need to choose one or the other and people fricking around in coop typically aren't going to be PVP focused.

                it doesn't, there's a 300ms wait if the receiving end of an attack has higher latency, so the enemy answers with an animation later, but was still hit at the correct time. It's actually a smart way to handle connection with higher latency players, Fromsoftware selectively picks what is attacker or defender based so on the receiving end the enemy reacted immediately to being attacked with minimal delay at the cost of slightly delayed feedback from the high latency side in showing the hitstun, which doesn't even matter because I'm stuck in an attack recovery for much longer anyway

                That's not what happens. Read again
                The receiver got it immediately because attacks are attacker sided, only the hitstun is defender sided, for a good reason, and 300ms doesn't matter because the actual recovery animations in game are way over that

              Nobody cares, it's a made up complaint you always spout because you are an autistic moron thay is not actually in touch with the reality. Your vision of Elden Ring is Plato's allegory of the cave version of the game.
              Ever since the first Souls game player can skip content and go back later, or choose any content to prioritize what you need first. If anything, Elden Ring does it best because it still heavily gatekeeps weapon upgrades unlike previous games and has still a somewhat defined and set order for Remembrance and main bosses unlike Dark Souls 1 or Demon's Souls. The game has also maps you can find, which pretty much highlights every single piece of content for players to find. At most, missing field bosses tied to time of day is possible.
              But real Souls players regularly play through these games at RL 20, 30, 40 or whatever to engage with the PVP at various levels through multiple characters. The game even has talismans and an early Great Rune for that. You are just an autistic tourist and newbie that started with Dark Souls 2

              There are so many things to do in the game that if you get stuck in one place you can come back to it a higher level, spend the time studying the patterns, crafting helpful, using spirits and summons. It’s the kind of game where you will get out what you put in.

              I never played any of the Souls games really, so I made a terrible STR build because the games are known for their combat. I have had a most grueling time, but there are some highlights I’ve had like being filtered by the Tree Sentinel outside Leyndell before figuring out I could instantly kill him by parrying him off a cliff.

              With all of that said, I don’t enjoy the gameplay. Not enough use of jumping and a light attack/heavy attack shit with “combos” being pressing R1 three times is always super gay. The clipping is extremely irritating and the animations have no zero weight.

                The issue for a lot of people is that they are so familiar with these games that they can instantly break them. A str/melee focused build for instance most players will instantly gravitate either towards a greatshield full tank build or just grab two giant weapons and use the most poise breaking attack over and over to steamroll everything.

          still better than level scaling.

          Want to know the actual 200iq solution? Tone down the power creep of the player and enemies and keep the stats tighter. No need for level scaling, each encounter can be fine tuned easier, no worry about over level or under level. Look at conan exiles, max level is 60, you get a point per level, attributes cap at 20 each and there are 6 of them, you get perks for different stages, so at max level you can at max cap out 3 attributes if you want to go for the max lvl perks for each one, or you can get jack of all trades, or jack of 4/6 trades, whatever. You can do endgame stuff at low lvl if you want/ have good gear, and low lvl stuff can still be dangerous if you arent wearing armor, or didnt build tanky. Unironically the best stat system in an open world RPG and its some janky ass mmo lite survival crafting game.

      It's fun to play and good but it does have flaws. It also has the quality that people overlook the flaws to call it flawless.
      I don't think they are doing it to upset anyone though, the game really does have some sort of "it" factor that makes you overlook it's failings (unless you are trooned).
      I think the combat maths are bad and the flat damage into % negation is a sloppy fix that actually made things worse or more confusing as evidenced by the soreseal fiascos. No one talks about that realistically though because most of you haven't actually really played the game seriously and wouldn't know what people are talking about.

        There's no "fiasco"
        Soreseal help enhance build variety at early game, so that players can spread into multiple stats and unlock requirements without a major downgrade due to the relative low damage. In Dark Souls 3 the disadvantage was irrelevant and every single build had Prisoner Chain. People not realizing that soreseal aren's good beyong RL30 because they are dumb usn't a game flaw.

          There was a fiasco. People didn't understand what soreseals were doing to their defenses because % negation doesn't factor in until the 60s level range and they didn't see the effect until then.
          The entire number crunching system is broken. You see it falling apart when you hit NG+4 and onward.

          Its still a God and a powerful one. Realizing it's not a true deity seems like the perfect excuse to try and kill it for its power.

              You'll get it when you play the game. The whole latter half is about uncovering the lies within the golden order proving it is a fake religion that has no authority.
              Protip - mortals can't kill gods.

              Do you even know what a "fiasco" is? Because your usage of the word is only correct if you're referring to a complete and absurd failure on behalf of the player to understand how something works.
              THAT is a fiasco. There's nothing wrong with the system, it's purely a player failure.

              Yes. The usage of the word is correct. The fiasco comes about because people knew how the soreseals worked and wouldn't get listened to when they accurately described the situation at first.

              The system is designed poorly. % negation only exists because they didn't know of any other formula to track damage at higher levels and make it scale correctly.
              Their solution ends up not scaling correctly in a different way, because flat damage is still calculated with % negation.
              The scaling becmes exponential because they are referencing a % on top of a % and you end up with defense values on enemies that are too high.

                nope, it works perfectly

                There was a fiasco. People didn't understand what soreseals were doing to their defenses because % negation doesn't factor in until the 60s level range and they didn't see the effect until then.
                The entire number crunching system is broken. You see it falling apart when you hit NG+4 and onward.

                Good thing physical damage reduction is also a percentage for every item involved and is also boosted by RL

                It says it increase the damage taken.
                Was your first instinct to believe it added just a flat percentage of damage for every hit? No, it was clear that as the game escalates in damage the Soreseal would have increased it by the same percentage, making it unsustainable. The truth is that people hoped to get away with it like in Dark Souls 3

                It doesn't increase damage taken though, it decreases negation percentages and nothing on the stat screen informs you it is a percentage. You can see the number drop but you won't know that is a percentage value since it doesn't have any value assigned to it it just says something like 20.655. You have to reverse the math yourself and see it is a percentage of negation since the value will change based on the initial value. The item description doesn't describe what it does accurately, the stat screen doesn't denote percentages as percentages.
                It's like you are being willfully moronic just to argue. Its trooned out behavior.

                pure technicality, it effectively does what it says, and only a moron would believe that somwthing that "increases damage taken" doesn't work as a percentage, because like I said the other alternative would be... a flat damage for every single hit. No, it's utter moronic. You are either braindead or butthurt because you believed you could go up to RL100 with Prisoner Chain again.
                It also shows that the system does work as intended, as the damage reduction system based on leveling + armor and percentage values actually differentiates tankier or damage reduction boosted builds and gives it relevancy, whereas in Dark Souls 2 armor became meaningless after mid game

                People get the weaker seals early and equip them and don't see a massive drop in their damage negation b/c a % decrease will be small at low levels.

                you mean in NG+4 or something?

                Higher damage weapons are better for breaking through defences because of the flat +% damage reduction, which is why you can do most of caelid with a +6 great weapon comfortably but a +6 dagger does nothing.

                That and the fact you can miss the vendor item for stones to and above +18 can make for some awkward situations where a person feels enemies are damage sponges, or are killing them in 1 hit. If you keep everything up to date and build appropriatly the endgame enemies feel as balance as the starter zone ones. Honestly there is a case to be made for taking away weapon upgrades altogether, the only thing they really add is sense of progression but is that worth it when it limits variety?

    Nah, not really. I don't hate, I don't even so much as dislike it. I think is a pretty nice game, honestly. I honestly couldn't tell what my problem with Elden Ring that prevents me from loving it is. Not because I don't know, but because it isn't one or a few big problems, but dozens upon dozens of tiny ones. There is no one huge issue that frustrates me, like DS3's art direction, but a million tiny frustrations that over the course of a playthrough just keep building up until I can barely put up with the game.

    I had tons of anxiety about trying to beat Malenia on my mage build solo. In fact, I didn't play the game for around 18 months (May 2022-Jan 2024). I spent three days trying to beat her and I finally did it last weekend. I don't know what to do now.

      exploring Siofra river and then Nokron and Nokstella with that soundtrack playing. no game has put me in such a state of trance like awe as elden ring did. and these are just some examples of its greatness. Entering Leyndell was another such moment. I remember I muttered to myself "this fricking game maaaan, holy shit" so many times while playing through it for the first two times.

      The siofra well going down forever really sells what you are getting into when you finally see the layers of the underground.

    I tried to make a thread about roleplaying in this game and it archibed with no (You)s
    I am reposting in this thread to attempt again
    Share your roleplay builds and also post Ranni
    >burned prophet - str/fth. one handed axe as righthand (highland). Also alternatively used giants braid whip and cipher pata for specific situations. Left hand is for all things fire and any kind of fire. Almost never used non-fire incants (lightning is allowed because atla rules). Medium armor, only crimson hood is necessary for style
    This was my first playthrough and I pretty much never deviated from the build. I married Ranni and we had a fire and ice thing going, it was cute
    >footbawd samurai - dex, dual weilding katanas, rotating through all of them for variety. Main weapon tho is uchi or nagi with storm blade (the animation and effect is so fricking cool), dual blades or curved swords also acceptable. Guardian set is a must have for this style, especially the barefoot legs
    On this playthrough I deliberately tried to melt bosses with the easy mode weapons. Katanas are so overpowered but they're so much fun. Really gives you the power fantasy feel.
    >carian simpblade - int/dex. Carian knight sword in right hand, but left is the main weapon, which is any carian staff(eventually regal). Can use all sorceries, but prefers carian and frost (adulas moonblade is the best). Obviously CK armor set, helm can be any stonecrown, rennalas hat, but I prefer the deer antlers. It just fits so well with the outfit >inb4 troony antlers
    Obviously youre supposed to marry Ranni on this run
    >psychob***h killer - arc. Only use frenzy flame and dragon communion incants. Weapons are vykes spear, regalia of eochaid, and dragon fist
    This is my current playthrough, so I dont know what the outfit will be at the end, but probably drake set with some swaps. Gonna kill EVERY dragon and burn the world to the ground.

        Thanks for trying to save my thread bro
        Have fun with your pozzer build lmao

        I'll try my favorite builds:
        >Flame Prophet
        Pure FTH and pyromancy. Goes for heresy through black flame in Stormveil. Cleanse Caelid of rot. Armor is flame monk/blackflame monk and blindfold.
        Take Lord of Frenzied Flame only to burn the Erdtree, complete Millicent's quest and become Elden Lord through Goldmask. If you're weak-willed, just go for Lord of Frenzied Flame ending (but you should be a master of all flame, not a servant of it).
        >Carian Vagabond
        STR/INT, the most fun build. Play a standard STR build until you get the Meteoric Ore Blade. Kill Radahn solo, then go to the Carian Manor and seduce his sister. Pick up the Dark Moon GS and use that once your INT is high enough.
        Avoid using sorceries, and rely entirely on your swords. Your INT is just to make the swords hit harder.

        Flame prophet is pretty similar to my first one, only I went with marrying Ranni. I like the idea of using the israeli flame to save melina, then outisraeliteing the shibriri and reversing it before going with gold mask. That's what I did on my footbawd run.
        Also, a gravity magic focused build could be really fun
        meteoric ore blade and staff, but idk if there's enough spells to make it a spellblade type build

        My first build was a holy faith guy that went fire and godkilling flames because my holy build betrayed me.
        I was on the path of becoming another vyke just without the dracopusy (found out dragon breath is good way too late...).

          It's not so much a spellblade build as a full melee build with INT for magic damage. You could do Meteoric Ore Blade with pure STR and just enough INT to wield it, honestly.
          >Also, a gravity magic focused build could be really fun
          Gravity magic can complement a melee build decently well, since it gives you area control to push and pull enemies away from you. You don't want to use the meteors and asteroids, though.

          Does it play much different to Moonveil? Kinda bored at weapons that just do braindead L2 (Wing of Astel), but Bloody Helice is interesting

          >Does it play much different to Moonveil?
          Entirely. Meteoric Ore Blade has a buffed Gravitas WA, which is good but not a great anti-boss technique. Instead, you're going to want to time your R2s. Its charged R2s are some of the most fun and satisfying to land in the entire game, though. They're the same as Sekiro's ichimonji.

                A majority of bosses are heavily resistant to holy damage, going with fire or lightning is going to be better if you modify them. If you go for weapons that have faith by default, the weapon arts tend to be fairly decent if you can't modify them

      Meteoric Ore Sword is based. If you don't want to use a katana, use the Carian Knight's Sword.

        Entirely. Meteoric Ore Blade has a buffed Gravitas WA, which is good but not a great anti-boss technique. Instead, you're going to want to time your R2s. Its charged R2s are some of the most fun and satisfying to land in the entire game, though. They're the same as Sekiro's ichimonji.

          That's because most katanas are dexgay weapons that you 1H (or even dual wield) and spam WAs with. The Meteoric Ore Blade is a STR weapon and is closer to a greatsword with katana speed. Two-hand it, charge your attacks, and take advantage of those stance breaks.

    Is there a good weapon I can use for my pure faith build? Currently I'm using a Sacred Claymore with Sacred Blade ash of war, and it has C scaling in faith so not bad

      Depends what you want. Miquellan knight sword is kino but lategame. Best faith based weapons for me were generic stuff with flame arts infusion slapped onto it. Flame fricks up so much stuff passively and it always goes to B scaling for faith in flame arts.

      Faith based weapons are middling to above average damage wise, their real advantage is 100% of real faith weapons have unique weapon arts.

        A majority of bosses are heavily resistant to holy damage, going with fire or lightning is going to be better if you modify them. If you go for weapons that have faith by default, the weapon arts tend to be fairly decent if you can't modify them

        i was trying to do a holy paladin build. I dont mind if late bosses are resistant, I enjoy the difficulty. Might switch to lightning though if it's an issue

          You'll switch to lightning or fire by late game. Paladins with enough carry weight to have all 3 weapon types on them are bae.
          Late game you end up with a 0 weight seal for spells, can weild the staff of guilty for briar gimmicks at almost no cost, can have 3 different 3 lb swords all with different infusions, and a erdtree bow, with your armor, and be mid rolling with 24 endurance.

    I didn't really like it that much. I was new to the souls series so I played DS1 before Elden ring and what a disappointing shift into delayed/spam attacks and endless dodge rolling as the prime strategy. Elden ring felt like a chore to get while I still replay Ds1 all the time

      yup. it lacks the mood and level design of DS1 that always kept you on your toes. now the focus is clearly on just designing the most spastic boss fights possible. everything in between was putting me to sleep.

      leveling
      golden runes make this the easiest game to passively grind in. You can die and lose all your runes then pop some golden rune items you've gathered and have enough runes for 10 level ups late game without trying.
      You can probably get to a level reasonable scale to stormveil just collecting loose golden runes and not attacking enemies. I'm talking 30 levels with no combat.
      You can also go cheese that dragon with bleed like everyone online does every run.

      >faster leveling
      Elden Ring probably has the fastest leveling of them all.
      >stats that actually matter before 40+
      They do. 40/40 builds are perfectly valid, and you only need more than 40 VIG if you're primarily a melee build.
      >lower stat requirements
      They're already low.
      >no random faith requirements on gear it has nothing to do with
      Don't exist.

      The rest is shit from DS2, which is ignored for good reason.

After 30 minutes of losing to foot soldiers she asked me if it was supposed to get better after a few levels. I said that things were going to get better if she got better at the game, and if she didn't then things would get worse.

    I wish ashes of war were just a way to add a cool extra move to your weapon without doubling or tripling your damage for that hit. They feel like cheating as is. Also great spears fricking suck

          Almost everyone that plays these games beat it the clear rate is really high for games with a difficulty reputation.

      >dude what if we made the storm ruler a spear
      >except without it's power outside of the boss fight
      I am angry about this, the storm ruler in 3 allowed you to use the skill anywhere after demon's souls did the same thing as the spear

        The flipside is its good with no stat investment. People abuse that spear in low level runs because it will do big damage when nothing else will.

        It is probably intentional.

    Yes. I wish the PvP was more like DS3 though.

    I love that I can reliably find out whether someone's opinion on RPGs and melee action games is worth a shit based on their opinion of the Souls series.

    I think Elden Ring's biggest flaws are the staples brought over from Souls series.

    Elden Ring has so many weapons, yet so few smithing stone upgrades until you are over halfway into the game which could easy be 50 hours for some. So when you upgraded a weapon to +14, you are stuck with it. No point trying another weapon since you can't find the shit to upgrade it. Should just work the same as Somber upgrades. Just 1 stone.

      Yeah the basic stone distribution is fricked while the game is extra liberal with somber stones.
      Not sure if it's intentional though since basic weapons are made particular broken by weapon arts, so it's almost like somber weapons are made easier to upgrade on purpose for being locked into a single scaling map and weapon art.

    I think making a copy paste of one of the most unique and hard to find bosses in the game (Astel) and throwing it in a random dungeon was one of the most moronic decisions I've ever seen. It took all the reward out of following a long and exciting questline.

    If they were to do a SOTFS style update to Elden Ring I'd like to see them just make a bunch more new dungeon bosses and replace any repeats with them

      I understand your point, but theryre nog exactly unique, there are like 8 of those things hanging around(literally) the map in other locations which are in a younger phase
      I do get that it is in a random dungeon instead of another place that's fitting, tho

        Then make the more developed version of that lifeform the quest boss and not an almost copy pasted version of it with no changes in design.
        It's like even the devs knew they were casualizing to pander to normies and decided to leave the slightly harder boss in a generic dungeon of all things.
        It's not even the case for the argument of a superboss/secret boss like the Dragon God or Malenia since both have somewhat unique zones and arenas and are indeed harder than just Astel

          ??
          The developed version IS the astel
          The astel is the grown up adult and is a quest boss. The idea is that there is a second full grown one out there in the world, implying there might be even more

    No. It's a flawed game, I enjoy it for what it does well but the shortcomings are too big to ignore.

    Elden Ring is, at this moment in time, the best game ever made. Probably why it strikes such a chord with contrarians

      no, it's one of the ones where it's like playing against your little brother and you constantly have your mother orbiting the screen to make sure you're letting him win so he doesn't have a tantrum
