A year after the release of Elden Ring, FromSoftware and Bandai Namco finally announced to you an expansion for the open-world RPG. This expansion is called Shadow of the Erdtree, and I believe you have been looking forward to it for a long time like me. Via social networks, the Japanese company announced to you the existence of the Elden Ring expansion, as well as the first official art of the DLC. At present, only an announcement has been made to the DLC. We don't know exactly when the DLC will be released and what you'll experience in this new adventure.
At The Game Wards, when Hidetaka Miyazaki took the stage to pick up 2022 GOTY, he has already indicated that the latest FromSoftware experience would be extended. So, this DLC will come sooner or later. Compared to the method the company has been using since the first Dark Souls, it doesn't look like much has changed with this DLC. In the future, it may somehow take you to other places in the Lands Between, and it may even take you to another reality or time. Thus, those Elden Ring enemies that make you feel uncomfortable won't show up again. So, next, I'm going to introduce you to 3 annoying enemies that shouldn't appear in Shadow of the Erdtree.
1. Giant Crayfish
Usually, they are called Giant Lobster and Railgun Crustacean. And, they also have an abbreviation called Lobster. In fact, these fearsome enemies are called Giant Crayfish. They have the most effective attack, which is a stream of poison. This attack can travel far, and you'll be knocked unconscious after a few hits. However, Giant Crayfish can also fire a lot of projectiles at you in quick succession, leaving you with little chance of dodging these attacks. Since these enemies have hard shells, fast speed and powerful strength, and they will attack you suddenly in groups, they are very difficult to take damage. They have many powerful attacks, including a grapple that can kill you quickly.
These enemies can be easily avoided if you enter a partially submerged form. However, later in the game, if you're in a smaller space, it's possible to run into them and never know how to beat them. One thing I need to remind you here is: In fact, there is a variant of this monster. And this variant is infected with parasites, has red eyes and more powerful power, and has a disgusting creature that wriggles in its stomach.
In Elden Ring, there are many enemies that are very scary. Among them are Fingercreepers, one of the most difficult and disturbing horrible creatures. If you have a phobia of spiders, they may make you feel uncomfortable. Fingercreepers are giant, grotesque hands that are very good at playing hide-and-seek. In close combat, they only need a few swipes to knock you out. Fingercreepers bother you mostly because of their basic visual design. Since they are huge disembodied hands with an unnatural number of fingers, it is very hard to read their movements.
While playing the game, if you're not cautious, you're easy to fall into the trap of these horrible beasts. Some Fingercreepers will even lure you with shiny objects in order to get you into their trap. Even if these beasts don't ambush you, they will actively attack you, and even use gravity magic to paralyze you.
For many players who enjoy playing Elden Ring as much as you do, multilimbed creatures like Revenants are the bane. As one of the most aggressive enemies in Elden Ring, they move much faster than you might expect. Not only can Revenants jump very far, but you will be surprised at the high hit rate of many of their basic attacks. To make matters worse, Revenants also like to fire attacks, spew poison, and even teleport. That way, you have very little chance of escaping their clutches. If you want to increase your chances of escaping these monsters, you can use Elden Ring Runes to get stronger gear and improve your character's combat abilities to help you escape them. These monsters have a wide range of abilities that can kill you.
Actually, another arachnid-inspired horror show is Revenants, and you might have a hard time beating them. It's like one of the most annoying bosses in Elden Ring is the enemy's version of the boss, the Royal Revenant, and even if all you encounter are some normal Revenant, they can be very annoying. In addition to those just mentioned, sometimes Revenants will appear in your vicinity in groups. In this way, an already difficult battle will become even more difficult.
Revenants have erratic movement setups and a lot of limbs, so they can turn into a fighting nightmare for you. Even if you are the most experienced warrior, you may not be able to survive a battle with them. In Shadow of the Erdtree, Revenants should be the least common enemy.
