Player Beats Elden Ring Without Attacking In This Impressive ‘Pacifist Run’
It’s been a little over a month since Elden Ring was released to rave reviews, with many already considering it as the potential Game of the Year for 2022. Many have already finished the game, even obtaining all trophies and achievements along the way, paving the way for imaginative runs, most of which are impressive speedruns that conquer the game in record time.
A content creator by the name of Iron Pineapple thought about taking another route, going on a “Pacifist Run” which simply means that he wouldn’t attack or kill anything but instead use certain tools found in the game to do the dirty work for him, including an all-powerful ally called Gravity.
Through this pacifist run, which is believed to be a world-first, Iron Pineapple used the tools he had at his disposal to great effect. Elden Ring provides players with spirit summons that are able to aid the player in battle, and when paired with healing spells, can make these spirits quite formidable.
It’s great to see players getting creative with their Elden Ring runs, and it just goes to show the breadth of tools that the game has that can really make the game viable for veterans and even newcomers who have not tried a single FromSoftware game.
