Elden Ring Player’s Godskin Duo Fight Ends With a Heartbreak
One unlucky Elden Ring Player nearly defeats the Godskin Duo, one of the toughest bosses in the game, only to be disappointed.
Elden Ring has surpassed the expectations of everyone in the gaming world, including fans, developers, and critics. The FromSoftware title is widely considered the top contender for Game of the Year awards by multiple media outlets and experts. Moreover, Elden Ring continues to enjoy commercial success even six months after its release and is currently the best-selling game 2022. Much of this success can be attributed to the game’s vast open world that rewards exploration and numerous terrifying enemies.
These enemies include an estimated 150 bosses scattered around The Lands Between, posing a challenge to players at every step. Gamers often spend countless hours defeating these bosses, which makes victory more satisfying. One of the most challenging bosses in Elden Ring is the Godskin Duo, which is a mandatory boss that players must defeat to progress in the story.
The Godskin Duo boss fight in Elden Ring is often considered the most annoying as many of their attacks can’t be blocked. Reddit user Glass-Classic2227 took part in one such fight where they nearly beat the duo, only to see a disappointing climax. The user uploaded a video that shows their unfortunate encounter with the Elden Ring boss. In the footage, the user’s health bar is full, and they also have a Flask of Crimson Tears to spare. Meanwhile, only the Godskin Noble remains from the duo, and its HP bar is nearly empty. In addition, Knight Bernahl, the NPC summon, is still alive and has more than half of his health left. It seemed that Glass-Classic2227 had the fight under control and would soon emerge victorious.
However, everything goes haywire as the Godskin Noble makes a sensational comeback by performing the Godskin Wheel attack that tramples everything in its path. The Elden Ring boss rolls over Glass-Classic2227 three times, taking a huge bite off their health bar with each successful hit, ultimately killing them. The post quickly caught the attention of the Reddit community, who gave it more than 2,000 upvotes in less than 24 hours. As seen in hundreds of comments, people were amused and somewhat sympathetic toward Glass-Classic2227’s attempt to kill the Godskin Duo.
For those who don’t know, Godskin Duo is a mandatory boss fight in the Crumbling Farum Azula region of Elden Ring. The duo consists of the Godskin Noble and the Godskin Apostle, which the player has to fight simultaneously. Rather than separate HP for each, both of them have a shared health bar. Players should carry a sleep or bleed weapon in this fight as the Godskin Duo is vulnerable to both.
Elden Ring is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
