- An unlucky Elden Ring player defeated a tough boss only to immediately be killed by a random dragonfly.
- Unexpected incidents, like losing 1.8 million runes or dying to a dragonfly, highlight the difficulty of Elden Ring.
- Leveling up Vigor could help players avoid similar deaths and survive these unlikely events in the game.
One unlucky Elden Ring player had their epic win against a dragon ruined by an unlikely enemy, as they ended up dying to a random dragonfly. Even though some fans consider Elden Ring to be more approachable than FromSoftware’s other titles, it’s still an incredibly difficult game.
Since its release in 2022, many Elden Ring players have shared videos of how an unexpected incident led to their unfortunate demise. As an example, one unlucky Elden Ring fan died on the way to get their runes, resulting in them losing 1.8 million runes in the process. Now, another clip proves that gamers should never let their guard down while playing Elden Ring, even if they manage to beat a tough boss.
The Elden Ring DLC Wait Has Started Another Absurd Community Challenge
With no release date for Shadow of the Erdtree in sight, a determined Elden Ring player is facing Godfrey every day until the DLC is out.
A user named rocker2021 has shared a new clip on Reddit with this incident, showing their fight against Glintstone Dragon Smarag in Elden Ring, as well as the events that take place immediately after. The video features the battle’s final sequence, as rocker2021 successfully lands several hits on Glintstone Dragon Smarag with their weapon. The dragon uses an attack that depletes a majority of rocker2021’s health before dying, as the words “Great Enemy Felled” appear on the screen to signify their victory.
At the same moment, a dragonfly appears out of nowhere and takes out rocker2021 with a single attack, as they had only a tiny bit of health left after surviving the dragon’s final move. The player didn’t have any Flask of Crimson Tears left in their inventory, but it looks like they were just about to use the Heal incantation in Elden Ring before the dragonfly killed them. Regardless, this video is another reminder that users are never safe while playing Elden Ring, as similar unlikely events can sometimes result in their untimely demise.
The comments section of the post is filled with jokes about the dragonfly, with one user wondering about how proud it must be feeling after killing Elden Ring’s main character. Another player expressed relief at rocker2021 getting a confirmed kill, stating that dying right before the message appears can result in fans having to restart the boss fight.
Some other players also point to rocker2021’s relatively low health, as it looks like they haven’t leveled up the Vigor stat in Elden Ring. Other videos also show that similar deaths can be avoided by leveling up Vigor, as having more health can possibly help gamers in surviving these incidents.
