Eldon Ring is huge.The land in between is full of things to see, like Cut to show the content of the entire questline or some of the best drips. However, a group of vocal players still can’t stop asking for a little bit of that delicious DLC.This Topics that pop up regularly for downloadable content exist Eldon RingThe official subsection ofalthough FromSoftware knows almost nothing about its latest additions soul-like.And now, a player named JPNBusinessman has chosen a bizarre self-challenge: beat Malenia, Blade of Miquella with a different build every other day, until Eldon Ring DLC announced.

You may remember Malenia.she’s a redhead goddess Eldon Ring The legends and fantasies of Let Me Solo Her, The legendary player who recently defeated Malenia for the 1000th time. Fans love Miquela’s Blade.they did fan art and fan fiction about her. (And porn, of course.) They debated whether she would win in battles with other FromSoft characters like The main character of Sekiro, the wolf. and even some Amazing Malenia Cosplay there Really captures her majestic elegance. With all the Malenia liked, Redditor JPNBusinessman wanted to get involved. So he made a plan to fight her every other day, swapping out his figure with something completely new each time. This is pretty wild stuff.

California fifth grade teacher JPNBusinessman battle with malenia From April 25th.But unlike LMSH, JPNB uses a whole new strategy every time it enters Alpha Arena Fight Mikaela’s Blade. After each victory, he posts on the game’s subreddit and shares any relevant details (such as build and inspiration) as well as video receipts for proof.

JPNB has tried multiple builds.He made a surrounding Terrible Moonshroud Katana another based on Godric’s most forgotten but still beloved soldier. he is Even asking for advice on strategies to try When he runs out of ideas. JPNB told small house Because Rennala’s full moon queen is easily accessible after defeating her, he’ll be able to change gear, reassign his rune points, and re-engage Malenia with a fresh look. This led JPNB to discover some of his favorite weapons, as well as those horrendous builds.

“mine favorite build Will be one of my Sellen’s because it challenges me to think outside the ‘nuke everything’ box that spellcasters focus on,” JPNB said. “Instead, I’m focused on taking advantage of the game’s vast spell diversity to pick spells for multiple situations. . least favorite build Probably my first, it’s a basic river of blood. At that time, I didn’t rely on corpse piles, basically a weapon skill that melted all but a few anti-bleeding enemies, and couldn’t miss (kill Marinia without getting hit). “

But that’s where the idea for the cutest part of his alternate-day bout with Malenia came from. As a fifth grade teacher, JPNB interacts with a wide variety of children on a daily basis, learning about their habits and personalities in the classroom.It was his students who became one of his inspirations Eldon Ring Construct.

“When picking builds, I consider their personalities and what kind of game character or archetype would match them,” JPNB said. “For example, I had a student who liked to use sarcasm to deflect praise and keep a distance from friends. So I did a build Here, you parry Marinia with a huge golden shield, then stab her away from you with a heavy rapier. Another idea of ​​mine is based on a student who does nothing in a group project but orders the kids to move around (though they end up doing fine). This will be a build where you summon a bunch of summons and then hide in a corner while they fight for you. They didn’t know I was imagining them defeating the demigods. “

Ouch. Talking about being read is meant to be dirty, but it’s all fun. JPNB said his students “may think it’s great and want to learn more about the game and building on them.” But being a teacher may require work, and while he doesn’t do a lot of homework, he Tests are indeed often given. JPNB said he “found himself grading between deaths.”

It’s not just his students who inspire him. JPNB will LMSH and Redditor Atijohnwho is fighting wolfThe final boss of each day until Eldon Ring Down, as other inspiring numbers for this challenge.he even Simulate the build of LMSH with a single sword twistsaid the goat player “helps to balance the toxicity from the competitive segment soul game. He doesn’t want to be LMSH, though, because what he’s doing “takes twice as long” compared to what JPNB is trying here.

So for now, he’ll just keep singles Malenia until the extra Eldon Ring Content revealed. He’s on his fourteenth day, and he has more building ideas in a spreadsheet he accesses on the way to work. As far as DLC ideas go, he likes the usual stuff: bosses, legends, weapons, whatever. But most importantly, JPNB hopes FromSoft is doing something more specific.

“I thought it would be nice to have a lore-friendly co-op scene that would fit seamlessly into the game,” JPNB said. “Like a level, if you play offline, you need to bring in assistants from online or NPCs. Generally speaking, the multiplayer experience can be more seamless. I know the modders are working on it, but FromSoft could be there too Do more work.”

You and me, JPNB.
