One Elden Ring invader provides a host as well as their party an earlier taste of Malenia because they ambush them dressed because of the Blade of Miquella.
An Elden Ring host's party received quite the surprise when an invader ambushed them while dressed because of the infamous boss Malenia, Blade of Miquella. Elden Ring's PVP scene is really a sight to behold, and it is wildly different in comparison to the sport's usual PVE. Whereas the enemies only do as relayed through their AI, other players could possibly get creative using their approach, like when one player made a clever ambush in Elden Ring's Lake of Rot. However, it appears one invader got creative using their own character, and set the fear from the Goddess of Rot into the hearts of the host as well as their party.
Malenia, Blade of Miquella is famously known because the hardest boss in Elden Ring, being the bane of numerous players who've gone against her simply to die, with a few Elden Ring players dying to her 1,800 times before finally beating her. Her fight includes the infamous Waterfowl Dance attack that's notoriously devastating. However, defeating her first phase only transitions Malenia to her second phase, Goddess of Rot, which adds Scarlet Rot into the equation. Safe to say, the mere sight of her could strike fear in lots of players.
And that is what one Elden Ring invader attempted to do once they ambushed one host's party while invading their world. Posting to r/Eldenring, user GaelTheVapeMaster uploaded a clip of the invading experience on a single unfortunate co-op party. In the clip, the ball player, dressed as Malenia and wielding her sword, is standing just outside an elevator because it brings players down. Just because the elevator reaches the underside, the invader uses the Waterfowl Dance attack in it.
The attack kills both host and one of the buddies, winning the match for that invader because they turn to the final remaining co-op partner and greet them, the partner returning the greeting since there isn't much left to complete in that situation. Indeed, players have experienced to come up with multiple methods to avoid the Waterfowl Dance, it is so dangerous.
However, this really is sure to be considered a unique experience for that host, especially if this really is their very first time playing the sport. Elden Ring is filled with unique experiences in itself, but PVP only brings more, like when an Elden Ring player once turned themselves right into a living furnace. That's what makes Elden Ring special, and there is certain to be more to come because it continues to be played.
