57 hours played. 😮6
I know you lot are all very excited, but trust me, everything you have seen so far is barely an intro!
This game is way bigger than your brain can possibly fathom.3

I lost 85k earlier by dying to a fucked up enemy, and getting greedy on the way back and dying to the same sodding thing. Nearly launched the controller onto the bed.
Love this game!
You should never carry that much around.0
My fashion garments (not even armour) need to go out the window. My Sword Dance no longer breaks through the attacks of the beefy armoured foes because their poise is clearly greater than mine.
It wasn't a problem early game but these fuckers hit hard.0
Just dropped 36K Runes in a level (too big to be called a dungeon) thats so convoluted i have no idea if i can re-trace my steps.
Scared to death. Shields up. Peeking around every corner. Proper Souls.8
If anyone needs help, be sure to shout out. I'm tooled up enough to know i can coop drunk.0
You’ll find there's a delay on a lot of summon signs - as in they’ve already gone to someone else’s world by the time you see it glow on your floor.
Just keep spamming them, it’ll work eventually.1

What level are you, my best is +4

For you Magic users, don't give up hope:Spoiler
i've found a couple of high level Sages/teachers who offer some tasty bits! But more importantly, be on the look out for Scrolls when you're exploring/looting, and hand them in to the NPC for even more spells.
I also jolly coop'd with some randoms last night (as a phantom) and i saw some outlandish shit being thrown out there. Made me jealous at the spectacle of it all.0
I am so happy!! The universal emote in Souls games is press block in quick succession and wiggle your shield/weapon about, so you know you're cooperating with veterans.
Now, the new success emote is just press jump repeatedly. At least that's the trend I'm helping build.7
I have found the perfect jolly coop spot for my level, and I'm racking up Rune Arcs for solo buffs later.
If you lot need help feel free to ask.0

I don't really undertand how toSpoiler
equip the soul and use the Rune Arc to activate. I do know there's a new NPC at the Round Table who trades Great Runes for boss weapons.0

Oh, I don’t think the game tells you this, so for clarity: you can sprint by holding down the dodge button (B/circle). Works whilst on your horse, too.
You don't have to hold down it on your horse. Just press once to gallop.1
Playing this game for 14 hours straight clearly takes it out of ya. Thats the best sleep I've had in ages!
I did dream about my build though, and what direction i want to take. So today we realise that dream...after coffee.5

Also I need a magic vendor if such exists, magic missile is tedious if effective so something different would be cool.
I found him, but this early in the game he's only got the Mage starting spells plus one extra. I assume he's there (like other NPC vendors) for players who want to dabble, not those dedicated to one specific trait.
I know because my second build is a pure Caster. I was hoping my discoveries on my main might propel my second, but it seems not.0
Thank you FashionGods! 😄
I finally discovered a decent set of armour where my female Vagabond actually looks like a woman. Its not the prettiest set in the world, but i managed to grind all the pieces, and the colour scheme matches her hair perfectly.
Now the real Elden Ring begins...2
Had to take a break because my eyeballs are falling out my head. Also, i need to eat. 😅
I've been doing nothing but exploring all day (maybe 8 hours on my main build) and i've uncovered (but only seen a tiny fraction of) the entire map. To say its massive is an understatement! The amount of crazy looking monstrosities i've bumped into, then hastily galloped away from is almost comical. There's soooooo much content here its hard to comprehend! Only now, as i'm resting and thinking about it, its dawning on me how immense this game actually is.
Not gonna say anymore for now. Hope you lot are enjoying yourself.5

30 minutes. Come on j, you can do this!
💪 I never stay up for midnight launches, but the next 3 hours i spend in the character customisation and stat deliberation (before i pass out) will save me valuable time tomorrow.0
Elden Ring - Shadow of the Erdtree Expansion Announced
My Dex is at 55 without the Great Rune buff, and its still showing an increase with every Soul Level, so definitely no diminishing returns yet.
