Elden Ring

Platinum trophy from Elden Ring.

Frodo saying “it’s done” after he throws the ring into Mount Doom.

Some notes:

  • Took about 90 hours, not including time spent Googling “wtf is going on”.
  • Ended up doing two runs, one as a DEX/INT build with Ranni’s ending, and a second NG+ run as STR/FTH that was a speed run to the end so I could do the other two endings via some save scumming. DEX/INT I ran with Moonveil katana and Wing of Astel, and then got enough INT to throw the moon at people. STR/FTH I dual wielded Blasphemous Blade and the Gargoyle's Blackblade. Both were fun. Never used a shield.
  • If you’ve never played a Dark Souls game, this is the easiest one to get into, for sure, and there are a lot of ways to have fun exploring and not constantly seeing YOU DIED screens.
  • Definitely a top ten favorite game. Maybe a top five. The open world map is just the right size: huge, and so much to explore, but almost every inch of it has enough to make it unique and memorable.

Now, time to wait for some more God of War.

Got something to say?
