Elon Musk’s Elden Ring Build Is Unsurprisingly Half Baked as Hell
Elon Musk, Tesla CEO and potential owner of Twitter, has been a hot topic lately. Reports that he paid $250,000 to an employee in hush money, not to mention that he had allegedly sexually assaulted her. His madcap antics continue to drive down Tesla’s stock price. He was using it to pay for Twitter and social media services. Musk is now in the news for something less horrifying than those other things, but still funny: the dude’s really bad at Elden Ring.
A tweet was posted Monday by the man who paid a lot to have people call him Tesla’s founder. It showed a photo of his Elden Ring equipment, and it is actually really dumb.
One, his stats are all over the place. He is level 111, but he hasn’t decided to take up magic or dex yet. Instead of choosing a hybrid, he just…equips weapons that can be used for both. He is also carrying two shields which is something that no one does. This is a silly thing to do. He’s on the heavy roll. However, he says he will reduce his equipment load if a fast roll is required. This is similar to saying that I’ll gain muscles when I need them. Heavy Load is not something you can “fast roll” with.
A mage would not wear heavy armor. A mage should have at least a medium-sized roll. He carries the staff and the swords in the same hand. Who can carry three types of spirit ashes simultaneously?
These are just the beginning of his talismans. This is where the real wild ride begins. Radon’s Soreseal is a talisman that increases your health, stamina, and strength while also allowing you to take 15% more damage. This negates all the benefits he gets from heavy armor. The Green Turtle Talisman is his best option, as it recovers stamina quicker, but he’s also a mage. Fast stamina recovery is only necessary if you are rolling in damage and then rolling off, which he cannot do since he has too many craps.
You build when you don’t understand the game’s underlying systems but like to see numbers rise. This is not surprising. Musk started the thread by tweeting that he thought Elden Ring was “the most beautiful art” and it’s something we agree with within our review. It begs the question: Would Musk use that same pickup line for flight attendants?
