Let Me Solo Her has achieved recognition for helping players defeat Malenia, but he recently revealed that he lost to her a whopping 242 times first.
As countless Elden Ring players toil away against the notoriously difficult Malenia boss, one gamer calling himself Let Me Solo Her lost to her hundreds of times, just to be good enough to help struggling players. Although some fans of the game have mastered her encounter, including the Elden Ring player who conquered Malenia at level one, most do not defeat her so easily, with several considering her to be one of the hardest enemies FromSoftware has ever designed.
Elden Ring, like most FromSoftware games, is incredibly difficult at times. The Lands Between is certainly not a hospitable place, and even the most talented gamers will likely find themselves struggling against certain enemy types, bosses, and special attacks. This is where the game’s co-op function comes in. Players can connect with friends who also own Elden Ring to take on bosses together, making these showdowns significantly easier. Players can also leave behind summon signs, which other players can interact with to bring its creator into their game for assistance. Even though many players feel that Elden Ring’s co-op could be improved, it has proven to be a useful tool for countless Tarnished suffering against powerful foes.
