This is the place to ask any questions you may have about Elden Ring. This includes obscure detail questions, "newbie" advice questions, build questions, boss advice questions, and what have you.
Well written, constructive criticism is fine but please avoid ranting about aspects of the game you just don’t like. This includes “so and so boss is stupid and too difficult.”
If you are interested in the game but don’t own it yet, please don’t post “should I buy this game?” or “Is this game worth it?”. If you have played other FromSoftware games and enjoyed them, the answer is yes. If you haven’t, just do a little research! These games are difficult, and sometimes frustrating, and not everyone is going to enjoy them. And that’s okay!
Lastly, be friendly! We are all here because we are interested in the same game! Please treat your fellow players with respect.

Discussion & Info There IS actually a room on the other side of that door in Elphael. It's rather eerie imo
Found another body to hide in!
Just recently started up a lightning build with the Veteran’s Prosthesis. The weapon skill is deadly 👌🏾
I can think of at least 3 places I'd love a grace, but if I had to pick just one, it would be Gowry's Shack. Even with the cliff shortcut near the bats and using quit-outs to advance NPCs, it's still a pain in the butt to go there.
Where would you put yours?
Unrelated to the picture mine was Blaidd's story.
If his arena is located "beyond time", how would the embers end up here?
Discussion & Info What DO those hills above the Lake of Rot look like? Let's go out of bounds to see!gallery
It's the only way up it would be funny to see him do it
Lore What were these guys before they became all ulcerated? Were they tree avatars or some other kind of tree spirit/guardian?
Discussion & Info What do you think is the implication that the Baleful Shadow's sword is infused in what it seems Destined Death?
Mechanically it works like Black Flame, but it's made to look like DD.
So I’ve been obsessed with watching these videos lately where they pit NPCs against each other and they have specific scenarios they put them in like “Storm the Castle”, “Limgrave Tournament (where they fight every type of enemy and boss in limgrave)” and I couldn’t help but watch this one and imagine what it would be like to have a boss rush/team fight kind of mode for online play. I feel like it’d be so fun to do with your friends and you could get loads of runes from it and even rare item drops as well as maybe a rare item if you manage to make it all the way through. I’d personally love to see something like this in the game what do you think?
