A Elder ring fan managed to finish the game without attacking a single enemy. By using a lot of glitches this is Elder ring player was able to complete the game’s main story quest just by walking and blocking with the shield.
That’s no secret Elder ring is a rather long and difficult game. By mixing the classic Soulslike combat and placing it in a sprawling open world, the game’s developers were able to create an experience that spans dozens, if not hundreds, of hours to complete. Back in February, Elder ring finally passed a major sales milestone, with over 20 million copies sold, proving that people like hard, long games. However, there are a few players who simply prefer to work their way through the entire game instead of following the right paths.
The YouTuber Ymfah, who specializes in content related to Soulslike games, recently published a video in which he Elder ring without attacking an enemy. In the video, it’s possible to see the player exploiting a glitch to essentially zap all over the world using teleports, progressing through areas like the Chapel of Anticipation, Raya Lucaria Academy, and the Crumbling Farum Azula much faster than they would must.
Using glitches to kill Elder ring bosses or making the game easier in speedrunning isn’t unheard of, but Ymfah really took this to the next level. To complete the game, he used several glitches, including the famous zip, mega-zip, and the wrong warp. Zip and mega zip allow the player to travel great distances almost while teleporting, which helps to break the order of the game. Using the wrong warp makes it possible to teleport to other locations instead of the “correct” one. Ymfah even used a now-defunct glitch that kills bosses, which was patched in 1.04, so he had to download an archived copy of the game to complete the whole ordeal.
While weird glitches are no stranger to the Elder ring community, they are not always nice. Recently one Elder ring player was attacked by an intruder who killed him with a glitch. During this incident, the gamer was playing peacefully in multiplayer when a suspicious player named “Glitch Tester” invaded. They waved to the visitor a few times, but were ignored. Then the mysterious intruder used a glitch to hit a wall but instead kill the host from a distance, leading to a discussion about how glitches can ruin the fairness of the online aspect of the game.
Elder ring is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
