Elden Ring: Why Players Accidentally Died During The Battle With Maliketh

Recently, an Elden Ring player died unexpectedly while fighting Maliketh. Strangely enough, the way the player died was completely unreasonable. Afterwards, Black Blade smelled sour on their corpses, which may explain the accident.

In fact, in Elden Ring, it is not uncommon for players to die in such a tragic way. However, most of these accidents are caused by the greed of the players, not by the unfairness of the game.

Veterans of FromSoftware series often suspect that games like Bloodborne, Sekiro, or Elden Ring are downright unfair to certain moments. Even games such as Dark Souls and Bloodborne have specially uploaded “challenging but fair” posts in response to player misunderstandings. The community is also actively responding to players’ questions, pointing out players’ own mistakes in the game.

How to FIND Maliketh The Black Blade Boss Location

There are also some interesting situations where some Tarnished are chased by the boss because they don’t understand the game mechanics of Elden Ring, including equipment load and subsequently fat-rolling, and dare not face the boss’ challenge head-on. Maybe sometimes actively speaking out about injustices in the game is not a completely useless response.

Among them, a PalpitationWitty8195 posted a video on Reddit of them fighting Maliketh and losing miserably. The death of the players here is not due to their own greed. We can see a special moment in the video.

During the brawl between the player and Maliketh at the edge of the arena, Maliketh has successfully changed to the second stage. Players quickly flee around the area where the ground shakes due to Maliketh’s changes. At this time, some Tarnished quickly released their Glintblade Phalanx Ash of War, and in an instant, four Blades of magic flew directly above the player.

Then, a cutscene of Maliketh’s possible transformation into Destined Death begins. I saw Maliketh stabbing the weapon into the ground, causing countless blades to emerge from the ground, quickly filling the surrounding area.

Fortunately, players have recognized this ability and try to roll forward to avoid taking damage from this ability. Afterwards, the rapidly spinning Glintblades collided with Maliketh accidentally, causing them to deviate from their original attack route. The cutscene stopped suddenly, and the player was also in a state of being unable to move.

Maliketh the Black Blade Boss Fight

It was also easy to understand that even if he stopped in a safe place, Tarnished would not let go of the chance of a fatal blow to the immobile self. But in any case, the player is suddenly attacked by Maliketh’s Destined Death, and dies instantly.

Even so, someone commented below the post that this is just a matter of skill. As long as you can successfully avoid Maliketh’s attack, you will receive less damage. Of course, this is also a good suggestion worth trying.

Even Maliketh’s attacks in Destined Death form are notoriously difficult to avoid. Players can only master certain strategies proficiently. Lie low and roll past its feet, and avoid damage by attacking dead corners. But doing so players will still inevitably be hit by several attacks, and they may die at any time when their weapons cannot withstand these attacks.

Therefore, it is very important to prepare shield equipment before fighting Maliketh to resist its tremendous damage. Players can utilize enough Elden Ring Runes to acquire gear. In the meantime, you can also use the code “CSCCA” here to get 5% off. Don’t hesitate, hurry up and try it.
