 Beginner Elden Ring FAQ 

How do I know what to do Elden ring?

The most recent Souls game, Elden Ring, has attracted a number of new Souls players, but a common impression is that it requires a guide to properly playthrough. Unlike previous souls games, Elden Ring has a larger open world with less linear questlines that are sensitive to all your actions in game. This was deliberate to give the game replayability since each playthrough is unique. With a less linear approach, players can interact with new things encountered through exploring the environment and start a new questline or story. At the start of the game, start by filling out the Map and discovering the Sites of Grace in the area. Clear any dungeons that you come across, if not, you always have a choice to come back to them.

The Slots at the top display your Memory Slots. Select one of the slots then choose which spell you will like to equip into that memory slot. Make sure that you meet the requirements and conditions for the Spells you select to memorize. You may now see these equipped spells from the quick access menu and switch your items here with the designated button depending on the platform you play on. Once selected, attack to use the spell.

Which Elden Ring is the Easiest?

Due to the influx of new souls players to the latest popular souls game, Elden Ring, its difficulty has been a discussion amongst the community since some players find its challenging Combat encounters and Boss fights unforgiving to those starting out. Players have also questioned the game's inability to modify any difficulty levels, forcing players adjust to the challenges of each hostile encounter and work on their Combat skills to get through the game. Elden Ring is the latest souls game but was released as a standalone title. Players can compare Elden Ring's difficulty to other souls games developed by FromSoftware from the Dark Souls series or Bloodborne. 

The Souls games are well-known to have great difficulty getting through them. Other ways to alleviate the difficulty would be to play with different Weapons and equipment that work better against different opponenents. When comparing the souls games, some players have expressed that Elden Ring was already made to accommodate new players and believe that it is the easiest amongst the Souls games. This is because of its open world flexibility and the way it allows players to return to difficult areas at a higher level to gain an advantage during these combat encounters. Elden Ring also has some aiding features that greatly help with these encounters such as Spirit Ashes leading people to believe these features make it easier. This then also forces veteran players to play with constraints to challenge themselves such as refraining from certain Builds, playstyles or using certain equipment when getting through the game.

                      It would be nice to see a general comparison, showing how Elden Rings doesn't require humanity/you don't lose it when you die. Another thing is World Tendency, Player Tendency, Weapon Durability, and the ability to Travel between locations using the Grace Sites. Things like this were interesting to find on my own the first week, it may be very helpful to newer players that have kept from playing previous games due to it's difficulty. Just a heads up, great job.

                        On your wiki, basic things like flasks/runes need some explanation to a newcomer to the game. I'm using on a PS5 and the in game descriptions are vague and lack any substance to make sense of things. Specifically looking at keepsakes!
