Elden Ring: Breath of the From Software
That's the thing about this game. The combat is just souls, for better or worse. I love it and I always have after my first From game but I'm open to the legit criticisms of that formula. On the other hand, the actual adventure game open world reveals in it are breathtaking and *are* new. That's why the d+d 1st ed comparisons are so spot on. Like, I could absolutely enter an Expedition at Barrier Peaks area in this game, anything is possible just like 1st ed. It is also so supremely confident. It doesn't care if you see it, because it knows even if you miss some stuff you're going to drop your jaw at some other thing you do run into.
I recently heard the game described as a single player MMO and I think that's an excellent description of the series but this game in particular. One general piece of advice is to read the item descriptions using square. There's a lot of good shit packed into those descriptions.
Ah_Pook, it sounds like while Radahn is bullshit, the vibe I'm getting is that the entire late-end game is kind of whack in terms of balance/difficulty. I'm not there yet but part of me is unsure whether its because From has subtly changed the meta (VIT is good now, soft caps at 60 instead of 40, etc.) and the online community hasn't responded well yet or if they just missed the mark when tuning the difficulty. I'm hearing it frequently enough for me to think it's the latter which makes me a bit apprehensive about getting there myself. I wonder if some patches will address the most egregious shortcomings.

Will he be pissed at me forever?
Short answer, No. Long answer in spoilers:
Alternatively, if you just want their stuff then they should drop a Bell Bearing upon death which you can turn into the two crones in Roundtable Hold who will then start to sell the dead merchant's inventory.
Edit: beat it the next attempt. Fuck that guy forever.
I’ve officially become a dual flail guy. Or lady as it were since my character is female. I’ve pretty much done away with using the shield except in situations that I specifically know it’s useful. The attacks are just ruthless, as long as I hit with the first I can put down almost any regular foe in one combo. Except those damn bears.
Village of the Alburniacs or whatever was really cool- a great example of how the game understates its story…and has a cool Alien reference if you catch my meaning.
I can’t be the only one that found the singing harpy, I’ve not heard anyone mention it.
