Ring of Elden has been out for several months now, and since its release, it has amassed a large and loyal community of players. Thus, many players engage with each other by sharing their gaming experiences Ring of Elden in line.
Ring of Elden players tend to share snippets of their game progress, sometimes highlighting humorous, embarrassing, or triumphant moments in their games. However, some players take it upon themselves to commit to playing the game or fighting certain enemies in different ways. One player decided to do something similar by taking on main character Malenia in a specific way.
Reddit user JPNBusinessman recently posted about the Ring of Elden subreddit showing their tarnished persona facing Malenia, Blade of Miquella. The title of the video states that they will be beating popular boss Malenia every other day with a different character build. They will do this until the new DLC for Ring of Elden is announced, and they are currently on Day 2.
In the video, their character is dressed similarly to NPC Lady Tanith’s character, Consort of the Devourer, showing them battling Malenia in both phases of the boss fight. In the post, JPNBusinessman shares details about the specific items they use for the build in the video. Their build of the day uses the Flame Misericord weapon with Flame of the Redmanes, the Blasphemous Blade, and the Erdtree Seal. The spells they use include Flame Grant Me Strength, Golden Vow, Burn O Flame, and the Flame of the Fell God spell.
They also revealed that the armor they use is called the Consort Set, which explains why their Tarnished character visually resembles Tanith. They also list talismans they have used, including Marika’s Soreseal, Radagon Idol or possibly Radagon Icon, Fire Scorpion Charm, and the Viridian Amber Medallion. For Physick, they had a combination of +Stamina and +Flame damage mix to use in the boss fight with Malenia.
JPNBusinessman also shared their strategy used against Malenia shown in the video. This includes using the Flame of the Fell God spell on Malenia while using the Flame of Redmanes weapon to stagger her. Once the second phase of the Malenia boss fight begins, they switch to using the Blasphemous Blade for critical hits against her whenever possible in the fight.
While many commenters were impressed with the idea of fighting Malenia with a new version, some were in disbelief that JPNBusinessman could do it. JPNBusinessman would explain in the post why they do this every other day instead of every day. They say they have learned that it is impossible for them to complete this challenge once a day, especially since it takes them at least a day to practice using new versions in Ring of Elden.
Ring of Elden is now available for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
