Elden Ring - On my way to the Demi Human Pair in Coastal Cave
For those unfamiliar, Elden Ring is a fantasy-action game on Playstation, Xbox, and PC where you play as the recently resurrected Tarnished -- a combination of warrior, mage, or rogue -- who is journeying the Lands Between to collect the broken pieces of a missing goddesses's magic ring from her now-demonic children so that you may become the Elden Lord.
For my starting class, I chose Confessor because they gave off a dark magic templar vibe and since I wanted to focus on incantation-based magic which requires seals instead of sorcery-based magic which requires staffs, although I'll probably be grabbing a staff eventually.
Today's post will cover my trip along the beach to Coastal Cave to fight the Demi-Human Chiefs inside
I'd love to say this fireball landed ... but that's not what happened lol
BABY LAND OCTOPI
Lady Tarnished, please help!
Someone killed two of the big land-octopi!
No, child, you are mistaken.
Someone killed ALL the land octopi.
I felt bad attacking them the since they looked so peaceful at first but they started screaming and drawing their weapons so I had no choice but to do a little more beach-cleaning.
Twas another chilly day at the beach so I warmed them up with a fireball
Both goblins caught my fireball mid-air. How impressive of them.
Me regretting not buying a torch from a merchant earlier.
There's something very soothing about these Seats of Grace.
There was also a Summoning statue nearby and while I have some noble and wolf summons, I have no idea how to activate them.
There were some goblins hiding in the dark so I illuminated them.
This is always a nice reminder that a mini-boss/boss is close by. I've been tempted to not use these but previous boss battles have shown me how grave an error that would be.
Two Demi Human Chiefs and some goblins.
Thankfully, my summoned cooperator Old Knight Istvan acts as a good distraction and damage-sponge.
Old Knight Istvan shows off a bit and creates a shockwave by stabbing the ground.
My fireballs do a nice chunk of damage to these big ugly guys so maybe they're weak to fire or magic.
I like these announcements when you win.
I win a pair of new items -- Tailoring Tools & Sewing Needle. Perhaps a friendly reminder that this fancy cape I'm wearing won't fix itself lol.
