Five Tips & Tricks for Bosses in ELDEN RING
Is someone killing you relentlessly and you’re tired of it? Check out these five tips and see if you’re making any of these mistakes!
Elden Ring Deluxe Edition
Let's be real, with well over 100 bosses in ELDEN RING, most of what you will be doing is fighting them. Although most of them have unique skill sets and tricks to use in order to defeat them, there are some universal rules you can follow that are sure to make your life easier when fighting them. Here are five tips & tricks for fighting bosses in ELDEN RING!
#1 — Don't panic roll
FromSoftware has a knack for making our lives a living hell and making us feel constant dread and danger at every turn of the corner. Thankfully, they provided a panic invulnerability button to help us. Unfortunately, that same panic button can often lead to us getting hit, as most bosses have a delayed attack that is meant to catch you when you're rolling. Try to pay attention to boss animations and roll accordingly, as spamming it will lead to less-than-favourable results.
#2 — Have patience
This is a tip that is practically universal when it comes to soulslike titles. Truth is, this genre is all about trying to remain calm at the worst of times and having patience when that fails. Try and try again so that eventually you reign victorious and never have to fight that boss again — unless they're one of the numerous repeated bosses throughout the game.
#3 — Don't play overly aggressive
Let's be real, we've all gotten one or two hits away from killing a boss and then miserably failed. Recently — while fighting against Margit, the Fell Omen once again — I had this almost happen to me. It's never a good idea to fight aggressively unless you are 100% certain that you will succeed; I'd personally much rather roll through three attacks and get one last hit later than die trying to get that hit and suffering a boss' perilous combo.
#4 — Learn to die and be okay with it
Here's a secret about ELDEN RING: you're going to die... a lot. Die and die you will, and at times it'll feel like Groundhog Day. That's okay, each death is getting you closer to your imminent victory; the most important part is making sure you learn something with each death. Rolled too early? Try stalling your rolls. Played too aggressively? Learn the enemy's pattern. All of these bosses are beatable, you just have to employ the right technique to do so.
#5 — Try again later
When all else fails, take a break. Go out, take a nap, or — if you're fanatical for gaming like me — play your "break" game; being angry is the single worst mistake you can make in gaming. Come back with a clear mind, and there's every chance that you'll defeat your foe in just a couple of tries. Trust us, it'll work!
That's it for our boss tips & tricks! We hope it was useful and good luck defeating whoever you're stuck on (most likely than not, Fallingstar Beast)!
