Key Takeaways
  • An Elden Ring player, RS_Lionheart, shattered the previous record by defeating the boss Malenia in just 15 seconds on the highest difficulty level of New Game+7.
  • RS_Lionheart utilized buffs, consumables, and precise timing to achieve this remarkable accomplishment.
  • Another Elden Ring player, Let Me Solo Her, completed a Malenia-only run in just ten hours without leveling up the Vigor stat and wearing only a pot helmet and rag for underwear.
  • The punishing difficulty of Elden Ring inspires players to devise unique strategies and take on seemingly impossible challenges, pushing the limits of what is possible within the game.
  • With new content, such as the upcoming expansion Shadow Of The Erdtree, the passionate and dedicated Elden Ring community will undoubtedly continue to break records and achieve new milestones.

In the world of Elden Ring, an infamous boss known as Malenia, Blade of Miquella, has been the bane of countless players’ existence.

However, one determined Tarnished player, RS_Lionheart, has managed to shatter previous records by defeating the formidable boss in a mere 15 seconds.

This remarkable accomplishment was achieved on New Game+7, the highest difficulty level offered by the game after completing it eight times.

Malenia is an optional boss in the game and is notorious for her difficulty and one-hit kill potential.

As reported by FromSoftware, she has been attempted a staggering 329 million times, which undoubtedly highlights the challenges players face when confronting her.

RS_Lionheart’s Strategy: Buffs, Consumables, and Precise Timing

Before engaging Malenia in battle, RS_Lionheart meticulously prepared by applying a variety of buffs and consumables to his character.

These included the Golden Vow, an incantation that increases attack and defense, and the Frenzyflame Stone, a consumable that continuously restores HP.

Armed with two Bandit’s Curved Swords, RS_Lionheart completed the first phase of the fight in just seven seconds.

As Malenia entered her dreaded second phase, RS_Lionheart threw a Freezing Pot consumable to ground her, then proceeded to defeat her with a series of jump attacks.

The entire battle took just over 15 seconds, making this an astonishing achievement.

However, the record was soon broken by RS_Lionheart’s friend, who managed to defeat Malenia in a little over 10 seconds, albeit not on New Game+7.

In the world of Elden Ring, an infamous boss known as Malenia, Blade of Miquella, has been the bane of countless players’ existence.

Let Me Solo Her: A Legend Among Elden Ring Players

In addition to RS_Lionheart’s record-breaking feat, another Elden Ring player has achieved something extraordinary.

Let Me Solo Her, a renowned streamer, decided to take on the daunting challenge of a Malenia-only run.

Utilizing a mod to replace every enemy in the game with Malenia, the streamer created an entirely new and unique playthrough titled “Elden Ring But Everything Is Malenia,” which is available to watch on YouTube.

Despite the seemingly insurmountable odds, Let Me Solo Her completed the Malenia-only run in just ten hours.

Although other streamers have completed this challenge with faster times, Let Me Solo Her stands out for accomplishing the task without leveling up the Vigor stat, and wearing only a pot helmet and rag for underwear throughout the game.

Elden Ring: A Game that Inspires Creativity and Perseverance

The punishing difficulty of Elden Ring has spurred players like RS_Lionheart and Let Me Solo Her to devise unique strategies and take on seemingly impossible challenges.

These players have demonstrated that with determination and creativity, even the most difficult bosses like Malenia can be conquered.

As new content, such as the upcoming expansion Shadow Of The Erdtree, continues to be released, the passionate and dedicated Elden Ring community will undoubtedly continue to break records and achieve new milestones, pushing the limits of what is possible within the game.
