A player of ‘Elden Ring” discovers a brilliant strategy to solve the most frustrating puzzle in the game.
Elden Ring presents some very difficult challenges. Even random enemies can be quite threatening when placed in the right circumstances (unless it’s me being bad at the game) but are bound to get stuck at one point or another of the game’s larger bosses.
Not only are the enemies obstacles to Tarnished’s progress, but the Frenzied Flame Jump puzzle in the Cathedral of the Forsaken has been a notorious pain to solve. Reddit user has found a simple solution to this problem.
“Turns to Vyke’s War Spear jump animation is the perfect distance to get down to Frenzied Flame Proscription,” The_Sailor wrote. You only have to jump onto the first coffin to use the weapon skill to hop between the coffins.
Vyke’s War Spear can be obtained by defeating Festering Fingerprint Vyke on the route to the Church of Inhibition in Liurnia of the Lakes. However, it inflicts Madness upon its owner, which Reddit users quickly pointed out was super ironic given the context of the puzzle’s placement.
D3vilM4yCry wrote, “I wouldn’t be surprised that this was the intended method the entire time.” A Madness weapon that has a specific ability (the only one that is not included in the Fingerprint Shield) can jump the perfect distance to navigate the puzzle leading to the NPC unlocking the Madness ends. This is an amazing coincidence.
