Elden Ring Player unwittingly has an epic fight with Crucible Knight

An Elden Ring player shares their increasingly dramatic fight with one of the game’s Crucible Knight enemies, which ends in a very sudden twist.

Ring of Elden gamers can often find themselves in intense situations, as FromSoftware games are famous for their tough combat. The usual game structure for a game like Ring of Elden sees players advancing through the game until they encounter a boss or difficult area. Players then repeatedly pounce on that boss or area, learning more and more about it and advancing slightly with each death until they eventually break through.

As demanding as Ring of Elden is up to its players, there is also a huge element of luck in the game. Bosses will sometimes appear to immediately light up and kill the player moments after entering the boss room, while other times they will appear inexplicably passive.

On very rare occasions, a boss’s aggressiveness can be its own downfall, as Reddit user SSSmoke recently discovered. Sharing a clip of their fight against one of Ring of EldenTough enemies of Crucible Knight in the Crumbling Farum Azula, the Reddit user is seen playing very defensively and on the back foot of an endless onslaught of powerful attacks. Luck suddenly turns in the Reddit user’s favor, however, after diving through an archway and landing safely on protruding ground. Then, in a bizarre moment, the Crucible Knight launches a powerful thrust attack and flies straight through the same archway to its death.

The timing only shows how quickly the odds can turn in a FromSoftware game. Players have shared countless clips of Ring of Elden fights go tragically wrong in an instant, and most fans of this series will painfully remember a time when they got greedy during a boss fight and were killed with just one hit to go. Things that suddenly go well for the player are more easily accepted and forgotten, but it’s good to remember that there’s an element of fairness to the randomness of Ring of Elden‘s fights.

Some Ring of Elden enemies are considered very annoying to players. A Crucible Knight can offer players a very tough fight, but at least when the player wins, they will feel the accomplishment of a battle well fought. There are enemy encounters in Ring of Elden which only leave players swearing never to return to that area again.

The Knight of the Crucible is one of Ring of EldenEvergaol’s many boss fights and as such is clearly designed for fighting in a wide open arena. Not only can he cause his own death while fighting near the Crumbling Farum Azula’s bottomless drops, his attacks are far too fast and varied for players to reasonably defend themselves in a tight hallway. Either way, the Reddit user may have been grateful the fight went as well as it did, and many more Ring of Elden players probably want their experiences with the Crucible Knight to go the same way.

Ring of Elden is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
