Elden Ring players are already tricking bosses into falling off cliffs

Elden Ring’s closed network test came and went over the weekend, introducing players to FromSoftware’s first open world Soul-style game and the handful of bosses that reside in it. Players quickly became familiar with the more vertical world of Lands Between, but it looks like some of the owners of the Elden Ring haven’t found their footing yet.

The Flying Dragon Aghil in particular seemed to struggle against the almighty force of gravity. During 15 minutes of footage of Fromsoft’s debut before a network test, we saw Agheel swooping down to fight a player in an open world encounter. Aghil looked scary enough to struggle while on horseback, but it turns out this giant dragon isn’t so confident with the climb.

In the network test, the players were able to lure Agheel over a nearby edge. In an attempt to swipe at the player standing below, it initially looks like Aghel is about to climb a steep cliff. Instead, Aghiel falls from the sidelines and falls to death immediately below. Clumsy dragon.

I noticed that the damage caused by falling into the Elden Ring appears to be a lot more forgiving than in Dark Souls. That said, Aghiel fell from a height of about two flying dragons—ten or twelve meters, perhaps—seemingly like what must have been an inevitable stumbling block. Perhaps the decline of the Elden Ring isn’t so forgiving of enemies.

Other players are also facing Aghiel’s bad luck. one explains How does he fall off a cliff if he touches another enemy? one more limit same experience Where the remaining fifth of Aghil’s health fell due to the fall.

Agheel isn’t the only boss who has had to deal with the edges. We put together a guide for one of the bosses of the Elden Ring on how to beat Margit the Fell Omen. Seducing Margit on the edge of the stage you fight on wasn’t one of our tips, but it certainly worked for this player.

By some lucky accident, Margit’s giant hammer jump attack drives her to the edge of the field and kills her instantly. These mentors really need to watch their move.

Finding shoddy ways to kill bosses is certainly nothing new at FromSoftware Games. Bosses can sometimes be caught in similar traps in Dark Souls. For example, the Taurus demon in the original Dark Souls can be driven to fall from the crumbling ramparts you fought. Perhaps it should come as no surprise that the open world of the Elden Ring allowed these strange strategies to be honed so quickly during a weekend of three-hour play sessions.

Keep an eye on your feet when Elden Ring launches properly in February 2022. You wouldn’t want to have a nasty spill like Aghill’s, but you may be able to use those few sharp drops to your advantage.
