Elden Ring - chortlesome japes

My game just crashed on PS4. Never had a game crash before, strange.

 

Has anyone tried Shabriri's Woe talisman in a bossfight? Will the boss focus entirely on the wearer? I was thinking I could get summoned and then run in circles. :lol:

I was stuck on Godfrey for a while earlier but it was just a case of staying close and doing one or two hits at a time whilst rolling through his attacks. It takes a lot of discipline. It helped me a lot to summon the Horned Arrow Bro halfway through the fight, once I was in the swing. Summoning straight away seems to get him killed immediately.

Right?! Just ridiculous. The second the cutscene started I was like “you’re fucking kidding me”. Can’t wait for everyone to start getting there. 


Wait…which boss are you on about? I thought 

 

Spoiler

Godfrey, First Elden Lord


was the boss, but then I realised he was the halfway boss. He took 3 attempts. 
 

Then I got to

 

Spoiler

Morgott, the Omen King

 

And he took two goes.

That's what seems to be working for me so far - the damage is so scary though. :D and I still haven't got very far in the encounter so I don't know what's coming...

Did you at least kick down the ladder to open the shortcut to that area?


I did but find it tough getting back up there due to the burger kings knocking about at the top

Duly edited.

Actually it doesn't seem too bad so far, because I'm getting pretty close and he isn't doing much else - so hopefully I just need some discipline

Been getting a message I haven't seen before, tonight ...

Somebody in the (symbol) group has defeated the shard bearer

Anyone know what this is about? Looks like some kind of covenant thing maybe?


Means someone has killed a main boss. What platform you on? For example, I killed a main boss on Xbox tonight.

Might have been me!

 

Btw, I’ve seen someone from here running about as a ghost - they glow golden instead of white when they’re in a password group with you :)

 

 

Yeah, I figured that was the case as well.

Spent an enjoyable hour helping people to beat a catacombs boss near to the lakes. It must be a pain in the ass trying to beat it offline. 
 

strangely though, I’d get summoned within a minute each time, but when I used my material to see what summons there were nearby none were revealed.

Jesus, just spent the last 4 hours banging my head against this 'Git of a boss (geddit?).

Doing better now I've managed to get reliable dodges using a double-tap (can dodge the moves that got me before all day long now) and also since I realised there is no point having the heater on if I never use it, so have switched to two-handing. On that note, I do wish they had a symol on the dpad UI to show you're two-handing, as it's easy to switch and not realise, especially when I cant actually see my dudes hands. Also prompted me to finally look at my weapon ashes, though ended up not using any as they dont seem a great fit here.

 

Anyway, progress, but still not there yet. I just get whittled down by the second phase as I only see a couple of gaps for as single strike, so his damage ends up outpacing mine. I could go away and come back levelled a bit higher, though I'm at 24 now so stats-wise should be ok. I'm refusing to use any summons though so there is that. I nearly first-tried him by accident when I did use them so want to manage without. Ho hum. I'll get the fucker tomorrow.

 

edit:

Side note - I did spend half that time focusing on timings for heavy attacks, charges, jumps etc now that the two-handing is making staggers viable, but has anyone else noticed that sometimes jumping attacks dont actually 'attack', you just jump, impotently? I think I'm bumping into him (not taking a hit, just making contact) and that sometimes interrupts the strike? Is that a thing? Unless it's a stamina thing, where I have enough for the jump but not the swing....

Where do you set the multiplayer password? I found it when I first started playing but cannot for the life of me find it now. I will join the rllmuk crew!


Press triangle in the multiplayer menu.

Yeah that’s broken as fuck :lol:

 

Normally the asshat doesn’t stop attacking for 1 second, let alone most of the fight :lol:

I dunno, I reckon after he was hit so hard by so many for 5 seconds solid he decided to peace out of there. ;) That's the second boss I've had glitch on me after Ulcerated Tree Spirit, but they're both bullshit bosses so, oh well.

 

@Monkeyspill I'm just using lowercase rllmuk

Just out of interest......are you able to explain why it’s so good? Just wondering how you justify not being able to dodge it’s attacks......because you can’t see them........because they’re glitching straight through walls? Or what about the camera going crazy and glitching all over the place? Or the player character glitching through the boss? Or not being able to see any of its attacks, or dodge them, even when locked on because it’s just too big for the area and for the camera to deal with? 
 

Just to check we are talking about the.....

Enemy at the bottom of the very long rope ladder.


 

Played around 80hrs and haven’t experienced anything like that, other than on that boss.


Don’t use the camera lock all the time! 
seriously, don’t use it especially for the larger enemies, and especially again if you’re on horseback. 
 

It’s far easily to manually adjust the camera while attacking with the triggers. 
 

I use the lock all the time against smaller enemies but often disengage it for the bigger ones. It makes - for example - the dragon fights way easier! 
 

I think I made the same point in the Demon’s Souls thread back in 2009 😂 

 

Edit: Also! Why is it so good? because it's a weird ominous place in a game that has a really strong core combat mechanic and there's just more of it. There's a boss in a small environment? Unlock the camera and the fight is just a good as ever.
