FromSoftware’s Elden Ring has launched to sparkling reviews, and while some fans thought that the hype had started dying down for the game online, one community legend has managed to turn people’s heads all around the internet.
As per IGN, a player called Let Me Solo Her (or LMSH for short), has been leaving his summon sign outside the door of Malenia, the so-called hardest boss in the game. Should you summon LMSH, he would then proceed to take on Malenia on his own, and you get to watch him beat her and share in the reward.
LMSH told IGN, “I chose Malenia to help others because I fell in love with her design… All her attacks are very graceful and she is unforgiving as a boss. Her infamous waterfowl dance is considered to be the [hardest] to dodge moveset from a FromSoft boss to date, so I decided to prove to others that it was not impossible.”
Despite his subsequent wins taking on the character, he admits that he needed 242 attempts to beat Malenia the first time, and with two summons to defeat her. Now, equipped with two katanas, a pot on his head, and no armor, he has become a local hero of the Elden Ring community.
When it comes to his choice of armor, he says, “It is a running tradition of Soulsborne games that the naked players are the most powerful beings in the game… Why wear armor if you don’t plan on getting hit at all? And the pot is a good luck charm from the character Iron Fist Alexander whom I admire.”
What an absolute madlad.
Elden Ring is now playable for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4|5, and PC.
