The Elden Ring image shows the map if players only unlock the required areas

One Elden Ring fan points out how little of the Midlands must be explored for the player to claim the title of Elden Lord.

of Software Elden ring It may be a huge game, but dedicated players eager to perfect their plays and optimize their speed runs have shown that most of The Lands Between doesn’t need to be explored. In April, the Distorion2 speedrunner managed to beat Elden ring in just under nine minutes, and the world record time has continued to drop ever since. Further exemplifying this concept of minimalism is a recent post by Reddit user u/Spicy_Slice 22, which shows how little territory must be covered to become the Elden Lord.


Highlighting only thin swaths of land in Limgrave, Liurnia, Atlus Plateau, Lyndell and the Mountaintops of the Giants, the u/Spicy_Slice 22 route cuts through an incredible amount of content, simplifying the Elden ring experience to such an extent that dozens of hours of gameplay could theoretically be ignored. Of course, this doesn’t count for leveling and grinding; And if Elden ring If players are looking to take on bosses like Godrick, Rennala, Morgott, or the Fire Giant while they are way below level, they are likely to have a rude awakening.

while a Elden ring The player gained notoriety for grinding to level 93 before facing off against Margit, the game’s more or less obligatory first main boss, which wouldn’t be possible in this scenario if there wasn’t a large amount of replay. Exploration is at the heart of Elden ring experience, and removing it would turn the title into a tedious test of endurance. However, hilariously, the route theorized by u/Spicy_Slice 22 can be further optimized.

As pointed out by Reddit user u/Thesaurus_Rex9513, a section of Liurnia that is highlighted on the map can be avoided through the use of teleporters. Also, a secret entrance to the Volcano Manor legacy dungeon can be found at the bottom of Raya Lucaria; if the player is killed by the Abductor Virgin’s claw attack – the enemy can be found at the bottom of the large crevasse near the Schoolhouse Classroom’s place of grace – they will be transported to an inaccessible section of Volcano Manor. From there, they can follow a path that will end up at Wyndham Ruins in the western section of the Atlus Plateau.

One area that cannot be ignored, however, is Roundtable Hold. Usually, Elden ringRoundtable Hold’s Roundtable Hold is an extremely important hub area, but as Melina’s offer to take the player there can technically be declined, it doesn’t seem to be mandatory. However, the player must speak to the Finger Reader at that location after acquiring two Great Runes to access Lyndell.
