Since it first released just a little over a month ago, players have actively discovered a multitude of content within Elden Ring. From weapons and armor sets, to meticulously detailed locations, to optional boss fights, Elden Ring has a great deal to offer its player base when it comes to the way the game could be individually approached. However, those seeking to optimize armor based purely on stats might end track of a strange-looking player character.
One of the hallmark options that come with FromSoftware titles may be the variance in armor sets. Each bit of armor possesses individual stats that fluctuate with respect to the equipment under consideration. While titles like Bloodborne tend to have a lot more great looking armor sets, Elden Ring features many armor sets which are reminiscent to sets featured in the Dark Souls series. As one player recently discovered, mismatching armor sets could make the gamer character look absolutely bizarre.
Over on Reddit, a user named Craft_zeppelin posted a screenshot of their in-game character wearing a mismatched set of armor, complete with a pig mask and a gigantic piece of torso armor in the shape of a pot. Otherwise for several aesthetic characteristics and hang decorations in the background, this likely could have been mistaken for that Winged Night armor in Dark Souls 3.
The gear you end up when you totally optimize for stats is hilarious everytime at a souls game. from
For how ridiculous this character might look, this is honestly something which players should expect when attempting to optimize armor, particularly when you are looking at different types of builds. Therefore, you will see innate teams of armor and weapons geared towards certain builds, whether that's magic builds, intelligent builds, or faith builds.
It's amazing to see just how much popularity Elden Ring has achieved in this short timeframe. It might just be because of just how much hype Elden Ring received within the years leading up to its release or the involvement that George R.R. Martin has already established using the story of Elden Ring. In either case, several players have certainly been enjoying their time with the game, as evidenced by all of these different stat builds.
In any case, it will be interesting to see what the future holds for Elden Ring going forward. While there have been rumors about potential DLC for Elden Ring, nothing has been confirmed yet. It's important too for fans to keep in mind that does not every FromSoftware game has received paid DLC, such as games like Demon's Souls and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
Elden Ring can be obtained on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
