I will say I'd far rather play Elden Ring than any COD.

Coming from only having played Sekiro so not much on the From Software front, but Elden Ring has been one of my favorite gaming experiences in recent years. I don't totally follow everything, and I do get frustrated at times, but I just love the ability to go do whatever, whenever, and discover things by chance that take me down another path. I was recently having trouble with an NPC invader, so I just left and went somewhere else for a while. Later I'll return and stomp em.

I like how it's got an easy mode for almost everything if you need to. It's much more accessible and there are way more options to tackle encounters. I never really messed with runes, perfumes and only barely the flask. So many new spells and OP summons / weapons. Just don't with the nerfs.

Perfumes? Did I miss something after spending over 200 hours on this game? shock

@Archer did you ever pick up the empty bottles?

Oh okay. Yeah I did. I forgot about those. Since its tied to crafting I never used them. I started using crafting stuff early game. But completely forgot about it after like 40 hours and just never opened that menu really. I stocked up on all the stuff I thought I would ever need like the boluses. And the throwables are things I never really uses in these games.

Basically just another way to stack attack or defense if you need it. I never really used them beyond testing.

Saw some save edited max level stuff- it's not much easier and comparable to being fully buffed etc. This game does not seem to get as "easy" as other from games as you out level. You can still get 1-2 shot at over level 700.

I've not yet crafted or used any items ... minus using a couple of the green things to get rid of poison. I have a massive inventory of crap I'll never use.

I'm sure crafting is useful, but unlike other games with crafting, it's not necessary to use it.

Crafting is very useful if you use consumables or throwables. But I find for myself at least, that I tend to not use them.

In past games the fire pots were strong and did solid damage to anything. I'd use the ones I found. But in this they seem very weak. So I just gave up on bothering to farm and try and make them. The trowing knives in this one seem pretty good. And crafting those would probably be a good idea. But I personally always forget to use items when in combat. I keep a few equiped to pull from mobs, etc. But I never end up using more 20-30 a cycle. And you find way more than that. And the buff items I just don't use. In any game. I don't know why. I just don't like using items like that. I'm not "saving them for later" or anything. I just don't use them. I always forget about them usually as well. So I sell them and use the runes for upgrading weapons.

Uhhhm, this felt super cheesy and should not have been made. Should have been way cooler.

76 hours in and Level 88. Just reached Lake of Rot (will need to come back because of annoying Scarlet Rot). Need to finish up Deeproot Depths and a bit of Caelid before going back to Atlus Plateau.

I love crafting my Fire Goops to enchant my weapon, run into the boss room, ring the level 10 Mimic bell and die in 35 seconds

Almost got the PS5 plat done. Pretty much just speed running at this point. I started fresh since I wanted my trophies to be in an order you could actually get them. My earliest backup save I have from PS4 is from before fire giant, so I had to run to do all the bosses anyway. I'll just use my PS4 save for the endings/all weapons trophies. Only annoying part was having to basically do ranni/fia quest all over. I did the run just off of memory so I kept getting lost and I ended up at Elmer really early. That fight was brutal. I only had wolf ashes and he literally 1 hit them, most of his attacks 1 hit me as well with only a few that didn't. Radahn was also brutal this time. I really hate this fight. I can dodge the arrows on foot, but he seems to be able to smack the horse even full sprint.

Since Im offline I'm much lower level as I cant get to the grind spot until basically end game. Ran most the game around level 40, then was able to get in the 70s with some of the later bosses and the gold scarab. Once I got there normally I just ran for the fly spell, +10 stone and the boss. Didn't do any leveling. Was stuck again on flower boss for 5 hours. Almost did it first run too, was so close. Its the second phase thats so hard since your summons gets wrecked and they are so aggressive I cant find any opening for attack. How do you guys punish the flower attack? I get rot before I can even reach the boss. I respeced like 10 times. I had a good tank build that it crazy good. I could survive all day. However the boss will still heal when they hit your shield even if you take 0 damage. So it took like 20 minutes to even reach phase 2. And then the tank build wasnt that good. For it to work on this boss I have to have a summons survive since I cant do enough damage for how much they heal from hitting me. In the end I did the same as I did before, but this time I respeced with 80 arcane/60 faith and used the flies. Had my summons use the frost stomp while I spammed flies. Should have just did this first, but really wanted to find some other way. With 80 arcane, the seal you get from the start of the game and the files just wreck the boss.

I used the sword lazer or any other ranged spell attack to punish it. Launch a whole bar of glint swords / as many as you can or a couple of sword lazers. Equip a heavy bleed weapon when you summon Jerry and then switch back to lazer makes it pretty simple too.
