Gamer Destroys Elden Ring DLC Bosses at Level 1

Jun 27, 2024 9:09 AM

The Elden Ring DLC Shadow of the Erdtree has only been out for a short period, yet players are already managing impressive feats. Content creator LastDarkHope is making waves by defeating the new bosses at level 1, without upgrading runes or equipment. This is especially notable given the DLC's notorious difficulty, which has pushed FromSoftware to release a patch to balance the Scadutree Fragments that players rely on for damage negation and output increases. Despite these aids, the tremendous skill required to beat these bosses at such a low level without enhancements is turning heads in the gaming community. This challenging gameplay could inspire more content creators to attempt similar feats, further highlighting the difficulty and depth the DLC offers.

How are players beating Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree bosses at level 1?

Players like LastDarkHope are utilizing skills and strategies to optimize their gameplay, avoiding rune levels and equipment upgrades. They do, however, use Scadutree Fragments to boost their damage output and reduce damage taken, although their effectiveness was recently adjusted by a patch. This requires a deep understanding of game mechanics and exceptional dexterity, making their achievements all the more impressive.

Elden Ring, developed by FromSoftware, has been a monumental success since its release. The base game already set a high standard with its intricate design, challenging bosses, and deep lore. The Shadow of the Erdtree DLC continues this legacy, providing players with even harder challenges and further expanding the game's world. The community around Elden Ring is known for its creativity and dedication, often pushing the boundaries of what is possible within the game, as seen with players defeating bosses with unconventional methods, such as dance pads or at minimal levels.
