Elden Ring's hardest boss has a super easy trick I wish I'd known earlier

Elden Ring's hardest boss has a super easy trick I wish I'd known earlier

There's a lot of hidden secrets in the title

With the upcoming DLC release for Elden Ring, players are all attempting to beat Mohg, a boss that needs to be beat to actually access the expansion. As it turns out, there's an item that makes it a lot easier to beat him, and it's hidden in the world.

Hidden in the Subterranean Shunning Grounds of Leyndell on the Atlus Plateau is a weapon named Mogh's Shackle. Once players go through the dungeon in order to find the item itself, they might be wondering exactly what to do with it, since it initially seems to be rather useless.

Take a look at the upcoming Shadow of the Erdtree in action below.

What Mohg's Shackle does is allow players to easily slow down the boss, Mohg The Omen. Players can use the item twice before it becomes completely useless, but it binds the boss to the ground, allowing players to get damage in and use any items that they have which apply status effects to the boss. This doesn't work the second time that you encounter Mohg at his main haunting ground, Mohgwyn Palace, but it allows players to very easily defeat the boss the first time that he is encountered.

Beating Mohg is rather handy to do now, as players need to have beaten the boss before they can actually access the upcoming expansion for the game, Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree. The DLC is currently scheduled for release in under a week, on 20 June 2024. It promises hours of new gameplay, plenty of new bosses, new weapons, new dungeons and new additions to the lore of the world.

"Discover uncharted territories, face formidable adversaries, and reveal in the satisfying triumph of victory. Dive into the riveting interplay of characters, where drama and intrigue intertwine, that create an immersive experience to savour and enjoy," the Steam page for the expansion states.
