(if you pass by this, don't mind me, just trying something out. That bot gave me the opportunity to try this dumb thing I thought off)

@lolwhatno Probably not best to engage with trolls or spammers. Just report em and move on. 🙂

We are now in a world of people being offended for other people who they think should be offended, who arent offended.
Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

@Thrillho Nice! That is…quite the area. There’s a persistent invader there that was giving me trouble. I really like the boss fight though! I finally just finished up the last trophy boss that I had missed.

@JohnnyShoulder Oh it's just a bot, if I knew he was going to reply I would've just reported him and not said a thing. I just was wondering if I could do the fake quote thing and since a bot won't get his feelings hurt by whatever I modified, I took the opportunity.
I love how the quote says "@kykylkan said:", just makes it more believable lol!

@Jimmer-jammer Nice work on the plat!

But good lord, can people definitely tell me that this game comes to an end??

I cleared Mohgwyn Palace (Mohg himself was surprisingly easy with Tear Mimic and had such a long death sequence I actually remembered to use a golden foot thing to get 500k runes!) and went back to the Consecrated Snowfield.

Ordina is genuinely one of the worst things in a From game and I had to use a guide and a video to get through that. I've just made it through Miquella's Haligtree and defeated the boss. And there's another area here too? And this whole area is apparently optional???

@Thrillho Thanks! But I still have to get that armament, just waiting for a buddy to get to Leyndell, then we’ll do the switcheroo.

Haha! I really is long, eh? You’re definitely in the home stretch now, though still a bit to go. I really liked the Haligtree area, probably one of my favourite areas. I felt the game went more classic souls in its last stretch as far as linearity and level design.

I didn’t mind Ordina but it was definitely a bit of a pain!

@Jimmer-jammer Oh, damn. I didn’t read your post properly about it being the last trophy boss! Looking at my list, I can’t believe how many I still have to do

And Odina was very DS1 like with those bloody archers reminding me of the infamous Anor Londo ones. I read a tip saying to fire an arrow to distract one of them and then sprint past which did the trick!

@Thrillho ahh I never thought to do that. I just ran as fast as I could a few tries until one time I didn’t get sniped. I found the game to become a bit of a boss rush towards the very end so the trophies come fast!

I'm 80 hrs in and just beat the fire giant! I'm going to try out the medallion I got the second half for in Castle Sol before pressing on. I'm not normally a trophy hunter and have been trying to play without a guide but I'm quite tempted to look at a trophy guide and see whether the platinum would be achievable.

@R1spam It’s totally achievable! For all of it’s purported obtuseness, I was able to acquire all I needed for the three trophy endings by just exploring and playing the game., leaving just the four “collect all legendary…” trophies, of which I only needed to find one or two from each set to complete. I also missed one boss. Just know that there is a missable legendary armament! After a certain point in the very late game, you will not be able to acquire it. I learned this the hard way.

@R1spam @Jimmer-jammer I was looking through the Legendary gear and one of the spells is from an Evergaol which isn’t open to me for some reason so I don’t think there’s any way I can get it 😕

As for my run, I completed the Haligtree area and defeated Malenia. I got her to the second phase a few times but eventually did it with some summons. Summoning people just makes me realise how boring/rubbish my build is!

Thrillho

Jimmer-jammer

@Thrillho hmm, that’s strange. Either you’ve already beaten the evergaol or I know some of them need imp keys to unlock. Hopefully it’s not broken for you!

I also definitely summoned for Malenia. She’s no joke! I ended up going through Mohgwyn Palace after Miquella’s Haligtree, and felt both bad and relieved at finally seeing Miquella. Bad that, in defeating Malenia, he had no one to return to, but relieved to know that it didn’t make much difference. I do wish there was a bit more to this whole arc.

I know what you mean with the builds! I’m there rolling around, swiping away with my little blade while they’re standing stoically, raining meteors and death fire from the heavens 😂

@Jimmer-jammer The Evergaol I need is locked but isn’t one you need to use a key to unlock. I’ve checked my inventory and definitely don’t have the spell from beating the enemy inside, although I hadn’t left a marker next to it to say I needed to beat it still. It seems to be a problem for a few people on Reddit too.

And yeah, all these people dual wielding awesome weapons with unique abilities and I’m there with my weapon and shield..

@Jimmer-jammer @Thrillho yeah I was surprised when I looked at the list, I have things for all of the endings already and a fair chunk of the weapons/spells already. Missed a few summons though, just did the Alecto fight in the evergaol. I'm level 124 and that fight was pretty solid!!

@R1spam I didn't realise I already had access to Alecto and beat her myself this evening. I'm level 146 and that fight was not fun! That jumping move that does mega damage and continues to drain health was brutal

@Jimmer-jammer Crisis averted; I picked up a final spell up on the same region as the Alecto fight and the trophy popped for having all legendary spells.

No just to figure out where the main storyline is again after that 15-20hr detour

Thrillho

Jimmer-jammer

@R1spam yeah, that was a great fight! I’d like to go and complete all of the evergaols, I left a few uncompleted. It’s funny, after all of the hours I put in, and even starting some other games here, I still feel like I’m being pulled back to Elden Ring.

@Thrillho I’m really glad to hear that! You’ve put too many hours and too much time and energy into the game to be platinum-thwarted by a bug. Sounds like you’re very much in the final stretch now though.

Fire Giant DONE.

I finally got the Rivers of Blood as well and managed to get it straight to the top level. The special attack on it is pretty great but my bloody Godskin Peeler still seems like a better overall weapon though.

@Thrillho Well done mate! I actually really struggled with Fire Giant, took me a couple of days to best him...
RoB is astoundingly punishing, even after some of the patching/nerfs etc. The scale with Arcane is pretty deadly, alongside an amazing weapon art.
Are you working a bleed build? I had a fully spec'd RoB, but was leaning more towards Eleanora's Poleblade - do you have this?

EP is probably not as 'OP' as RoB... but EP weapon art can land many multiple hits in quick succession, allowing you to get a nice proc on bleed status!

The end is in sight for you now, are you gunning for the Plat?!

CJD87

Thrillho

@CJD87 I managed second go. Not too tricky with me, Mimic Tear, and Iron Fist Alexander. My Godskin Peeler was more useful than RoB as the latter has fire damage which didn’t do much against him!

And yeah, I’m a bleed build with my +25 Godskin Peeler having Bloody Slash on it. It’s a pretty cool weapon, especially when two-handed but I do use my shield quite a lot. It’s a great one for the Mimic Tear though, even if he does overdo Bloody Slash and use up his health..

Because I’ve used that so much, I have quite low FP levels as I have barely raised that stat so the RoB special uses it up pretty quickly. I must have the Poleblade but not used it.

And I’ll probably go for the plat. My last couple of sessions have been going back to pick up legendary weapons, spells, talismans that I’d missed. I only have one weapon and talisman left to get and then need to remember to back up my save near the end of the game to get all the endings!

How are you doing in the secret medallion area?
