    Yeah there's a stat that governs how much equipment you can carry before you become too weighted down. If you're on the equipment screen, look in the bottom right. You can make your overall number go up with points in Endurance. But as you equip heavier gear it moves you from Light Load > Medium Load > Heavy Load and the heavier you get the more you're slow and can't move as fast.

      Malenia is down. But was not easy for me, I would say probably took about 20-30 tries in all. I think this fight exposed the Sword of Night & Flame's weaknesses. She was able to easily dodge the comet skill, and the flame skill was far too slow to be effective. So I had to rely on good ol' stick and move for most of the fight, and also Flame of Frenzy helped get some staggers.

      Definitely the toughest "good" boss fight in the game though. It was mostly a fair fight, except the health steal on any hit she connects with gets kind of lame after a while. Oh, and the scarlet rot in second phase was pretty awful. Have to say, if not for just those two factors she would not have been nearly as tough, even easy maybe. FS definitely decided they wanted to hit the player with the absolute worst damage effects to deal with, and put them in a single boss fight. Yuck.

      But hey, its the toughest fight in the game for a reason, totally optional, and a bitch to even get to. Its there for those who seek the ultimate challenge in Elden Ring, and bragging rights.

      OK, I think I'm officially done with this game now. Maybe I will revisit for a second playthrough someday down the road, or maybe not. For now I've had my fill, or possibly I am done with FS Souls games. For their next release I would really like them to do something totally different. Just think I've had enough and want to see a next evolution of combat from them.

        So, I went back and beat Godfrey and his Wrestlemania alter ego.

        Now I'm on Radagon and that's an AOE spammy mother****er. I get the sense I'll get him down within a few more tries though. I haven't killed Malenia though I've found her doorway. I still need to go down under Farum Azula and take out that big dragon down there.

        But all-in-all I'm a point now where I don't know if I'm ready for it to end. I know there's a few bosses I've missed that I might go looking around for, like the 2nd version of Astel, and other random **** like that. I've certainly gotten my 150+ hours worth out of this game.

            I’ll be playing with this game for a while, but I won’t (probably) go for another title with this combat system either. Miyazaki needs to get with the times.

            All in though, it’s been a good ride.

                It took a while to update for me. I hope it’s optimizations for the stuttering/hitching. It’s been better for me lately, but still hanging occasionally.

                  That was a bit of a bust. took out the bloodhound knight, but laetanna is dead in my game apparently. Probably because I found the secret amulet by myself.
                  Her ash was sitting by the wolf.

                  Didn't seem to change anything about the sister afterwards. So, dead end I guess.

                    I have to add one more thing. Fromsoft needs to ditch the platforming. They suck at it, worse than any other game series built on the same engine.

                    Going to the structure below bestial sanctum, a long drop is fine, but the shorter drop at the end kills me because we just want you dead, annoyed and doing it how we want you to do it.

                    Seriously the worst

                        Patch seems to include a lot of Speed-up and lower recovery time adjustments. Looks like they're trying to make things more responsive at least.

                          Patch looks pretty nice. Hope the performance bonuses are nice too. Interestinly ive seen some people say it also reduced heat on gpu and cpu. Which is kind of interesting.

                            It does look nice. We obviously weren’t the only ones complaining about fp costs lol.

                            I wish they had left swarm of flies alone though. That saved my bacon a few times.

                              I just watched a player on yt take the same exact route I took. From the looks of his health bar he was lower level than me, and I had the cat ring equipped, but died to the fall, and he didn’t…

                              Don’t know why I keep doing this to myself

                                Man I killed fire giant but before the bonfire step I decided to go back and clear some optional areas and did Haligtree and of course now Melania. I spent two and half hours last night trying "one more time" I tried solo, one summons, two summons...probably tried it 35-40 times. Fights would be going great and then summons would get caught inside the blade storm thing and be dead just like that. Or die to the opening of the second phase. or I would die in those spots. I know it's optional but now it's personal...I have to win this fight.

                                  Wow now that's a patch. I might jump back in for a bit to play with some spells just to see how they've been improved.

                                  Yep. Its just evident in so many boss fights that the combat system is dated. I just felt I was fumbling around too much in this game, where as before the fights were so well designed and mechanical for the combat system once you got them down. But a lot of the times in Elden Ring I feel due to the movement its just a mess.

                                  She's a real bitch for sure. She's weak to bleed and frostbite procs, so if you have anything good for that just to work it into your strategy. Unfortunately for me I didn't have a good leveled up weapon with either of those, so I had to rely on casting occasional frost spells. I can imagine a nice fast bleed weapon like Rivers of Blood would work well if you have the stats for it.

                                  But yeah the big trick to that fight I found was you want to take her down FAST. Because of the health steal on hit ability she has you don't want to try the war of attrition approach. The high DPS high damage attacks is what you want.

                                    Meteor is right, fast damage is essential because she’s pretty easy to stagger. If you have the stats for it, swarm of flies can stagger her out of attack animations including the water fowl (blade storm) attack. It takes a second to cast though, so your timing has to be spot on.

                                    Another option if you can use it is the blasphemous blade ash of war. A hit while she’s on the ground will knock her down.

                                    best of luck man - she’s a tough one.

                                      And if you get fed up you can just use the rivers of blood and a mimic, she will be dead in less than a minute.

                                        I meant to mention earlier that I finally got and tried the pest threads incantation. Not bad at all, and it’s a fast cast which is really nice for a change. I’ll try it out on some bosses later.

                                                  So that is the same guy. Because he's back once I reloaded the area after resting at the Grace. I was pretty sure it was the same guy, but he's dead now, and also still here for me to feed Deathroot to.

                                                  Also, this area under his Beastial whatever... is it just the Talisman and Cinqueda or should I keep exploring?

                                                          Okay, that explains that. I think I got everything down there but couldn't tell if that platform was supposed to work as an elevator or not.

                                                          I think this thread needs some Fashion Souls pics.

                                                                It’s the whole Night’s Cavalry set. It’s not the best in the game stat wise, but I love the dark look.

                                                                  The final boss, and Melanie’s especially noteworthy. 10/10 for me

                                                                  Comment

I have come close a few times but still no success. Its awesome to get players using bleed ashes and/or Rivers of Blood as it does tons more damage than my build, but Mimic tear was a lot more durable. Most players die so fast, usually when she pulls out water fowl.

                                                                    Man, I almost want to respec to dump points into DEX and ARC to try soloing her using Rivers of Blood. With the damage some players were doing I feel like I might be able to do it.

                                                                    Meh, maybe some other time though. I don't want to get sucked in again lol. But I just can't help feeling there's got to be a perfect build mix that can take her out easily.

                                                                    Comment

Golden vow and the Flame strengthen me for the most part. I should really look into seeing what I can put together for a really high dps build…

                                                                                  I ran across this recently. Excellent guide explaining damage in this game. Easy watch, not a flashy ‘for clicks’ kind of video.
