    After 2 months and 152 hours accumulated I've finally beaten elden ring. Really enjoyed the experience and definitely up there with bloodborne as my favourite from soft game.
    Difficulty wise I think its somewhere in the middle, easier than DS3 and bloodborne but more far more difficult than DS2 and DS1 which I played recently and was surprised at how much easier it seems compared to the later games.
    My favourite boss was radahn who if you look into his backstory is just a badass character, up there with artorios from DS1.
    Toughest boss was Melania or mohg who I found difficult even after using the mimic ash, godfrey was tough too tbf.
    Was really disappointed with the final boss and ending though, radagon was a fun fight but elden beast was a piece of * who I beat on first try and was just generally abit of a let down as was the ending (ranni ending). I know souls games tend to always end abruptly but i wanted more after putting so many hours in the game.

    Congratulations on completing it. I’ve just defeated Makalith the black blade. Very close to end game now myself.

    agree the best battle was Radahn.

    I’d be tempted to do a different build and do another run through but I’ll prob go back to another game for a bit before I try again.

    any word of DLC?

    I'm tempted to do a NG+ aswell because I know I'm going to struggle to get into another game anytime soon but at the same I dont know if I can bothered to do it all again even with skipping alot of the optional stuff.

    Aye the one thing putting me off is the amount of times I’ll have to die again to get the same results lol. I believe there is 6 different endings. Not sure what path you went down but I ended up going down the traitorous route (don’t want to give to much away incase it’s a spoiler) ended up doing dirty deeds for the Volcano manor mob etc. let’s say the round table doesn’t look quite like ot should by the time I’d rampaged thru the game

    took me ages to beat them. Impossible to do solo. I got lucky in the end. Use the pillars to your advantage if you can. Run round them and attack from behind while they are attacking one of the other players / summons. Apparently sleep / mimic tear helps

    How do you do that? Are you on about my mimic tear or another player? Because people have suggested that to keep and I haven't a clue how to do it.

    You use the furlcalling finger remedy to call someone into your game. Their sign, if there is one, will be on the ground in gold. There is the summoning pools/Marty effigies like these and there should be plenty of summon signs there

    Have to agree some battles you just need other players playing with you in my opinion

    Class, thank you. Do you get to see the stats of whoever you want to summon in? Wouldn't be interested in a character with * stats lol

    Respec your character with queen rennala, either make a bleed build or a magic/intelligence build which is what I used. I used a moonviel katana which scales with intelligence and dex, pump maybe 70 into intelligence and 30 or 40 into dex. Get mind upto say 30, fully upgrade the moonviel katana which uses somber smithing stones.
    The main reason for using the moonviel katana is its ash of war which is very powerful and easy to pull off and if you and your mimic tear both use it against Melania it causes her to stagger and you can get a hit critical hit off on her.

    I think you will only be connected with people in your sorta stat level. It is just your luck, you will get player who are godlike, average joes and utter *.

    It is quite satisfying helping people and being summoned into their games to help with areas and/or bosses, It also allows you to see whats coming and you gain runes while helping too.

    Using the Tarnished's Furled Finger, you can place your sign down in a location you think will be useful (outside a boss area).

    stick close to him, wear armour set with Holy damage protection, jump over the rings , roll directly through the stars and run towards him.
    I beat it will the assistance of 2 summons as well. Luck of the draw who’s fighting along side you
