While games like Dark Souls are known for its almost punishing combat that demands the most exacting timing out of its players, you can actually mitigate the worst the game has to offer by turning to the community. And Fromsoftware’s latest game, Elden Ring, is no different. With the vast open world, tough combat and their signature obtuse approach to storytelling and leveling up, most people certainly need all the help they can get.
You can summon people help you through the toughest of bosses or have your friends tag along with you on your journey. But if you prefer to go solo, you can still see various messages left by the community by tapping the markings on the ground, which reveals helpful hints. I managed to avoid multiple ambushes thanks to these warnings, actually.
But there are absolute mad lads in the game who see the messaging system, and make a whole new art form out of it. Elden Ring is full of the weirdest, funniest, and thirstiest messages. Here’s my small tribute.
Screenshots below are mine except when indicated.
Time for Head
Look I’m not here to yuck anyone’s yum, but I don’t think that’s the best place for that?
I… I really hope the community doesn’t have a ton of those.
Master detectives, these Elden Ring Players.
I… don’t have time for this.
I fucking love this game so much.
Seek hole and then Offer seed
I don’t feel safe anymore.
And of course, the legendary “but hole”
Truly the Dark Souls of things you stuff up your but hole.
