Yeah, I had to use Sorcerer Rogier as a main distraction and smacked him a bunch in the back with one of the power up items on my sword.

Right? Shield didn't seem to do much against it either.

Ok I probably made a mistake. I've died probably ten times and I just barely left the tutorial cave.

Is this your first Souls game? What class did you go with? Consider a magic ranged class if you haven't. I used magic in my first Souls game (Demons) and I always stick with a magic build in every Souls game

If you are talking about the Tree Sentinel, the game is just teaching you to just go around something that is too hard and come back later.

It is pretty crazy how much of the map you can unlock before progressing the main quest at all. It seems like you can unlock basically the whole map. Yeah you are seriously outclassed by the enemies in some areas, but since you can pick up items while on horseback and dying isn't really a penalty if you don't care about however many runes you have at the moment, you can get some nice items. I got a Golden Rune [12] a while ago at a time when it was worth something like two full levels.

I wish I could say yes, but no. Just random creatures. Zombies near a crypt area, some bat things, falling off a cliff.

It's my first game of this type. I picked the prisoner.

Don't know how the coop works in this...still wanting to get the game but already have two others working on....but Bloodborne was my first Souls Like game and while it took several tries in some place and got done, some Bosses I simply had to ask for a helping hand to get thru and try to get resources and items to get me stronger. Wouldn't hesitate on that part and from what I did read the coop in this is far easier and better than Bloodborne and Souls...just saying...

I went with Prisoner too. First thing you should do is allocate your flasks to favor FP over HP. So if you have 4 flasks do 3 FP and 1 HP flasks.. You can allocate flasks when at a lost grace spot. Collect Golden runes. These can be found scattered around the starting area in the glowing skulls. They give out a bit of runes. You can also collect the pebble runes that are around as well but they give out a lot less.

Get a spear. I got one by fighting one of the soldiers that had one. It might take a few times before he drops one. Spears are great for beginners. Gives a lot of distance to avoid getting hit.

Find a good spot to grind runes. I found one spot that can give you 30K runes an hour. The strategy is to find an enemy you know how to take out that drops a good amount of runes and is close to a lost grace. Kill. Rest , repeat.

Make sure to get your horse ASAP. It helps a ton in getting out of tough battles. You'll be given one in the beginning area pretty fast.

Visit the first church you see. You'll know it when you see Santa Clause chilling. Visit every church you come across as they contain an item that adds another HP/FP flasks.

Also use this guide to help you with your build..

Re: Elden Ring (From Software | Miyazaki | Martin | Feb 2022)

how does the switch item (down button on PC) work?
after i put my health and mana potions in my pouch. i can no longer select them with the item button (X on PC)
even after i remove them from the pouch i still can't select/cycle thru them. the list is just empty.
any help with this? its super annoying.
I want to press just one button to use a potion and NOT press Y + direction pad.


Never mind. please ignore. i finally figured it out.

Prisoner is a very hard class to start with for someone newish. Its armor doesn't provide much defense and its shield only reduces damage by 48%, whereas the Vagabond, for example, has a shield that reduces damage by 100% (while you have stamina).

As an Astrologer who also started with a wet noodle for a shield, I agree that upgrading to something metal is a big help.

For Wolf and maybe Deftones too, here you can see how much damage reduction a shield does. Those are percentages. So if you have a shield that only does 47 physical damage reduction, for example, you will still take 53% of the damage even if you have your shield up. If you have a 100 physical damage, you won't take any physical damage as long as you have stamina.

(I know I mentioned to Deftones that rolling is often more important when fighting bosses, but I usually use both. You can just hold the shield button while rolling or attack so that you immediately have your shield up again when the roll/attack animation is done. That way if you rolled too early or late, you can still avoid taking the full damage)

Well I was doing better. Until a trap chest transported me to a hellacious part of the map and I can't fast travel out.

​​​​​​Just say screw it and request some co-op help, an extra person + You + Sorcerer Rogier should make it a breeze.

Re: Elden Ring (From Software | Miyazaki | Martin | Feb 2022)

i am playing prophet.
not sure how to level up and what weapons to level up.
I am still using my starting weapon short spear.
should i level that up with smithing stone? or is that a waste of smithing stones.
my stats are too low to use any other weapons since i've been pointing points into mind.

Just like to say Fuck Carian Study Hall!

Been stuck on that Mage for over two hours.. Even leveling up didn't help. She's one tricky bitch. I know I can move on as it's optional but I want her spell.
