Are you about to start your adventure in Shadow of the Erdtree and want to prepare in the best way? Here are some things you should definitely do in Elden Ring before starting the expansion.

Meanwhile, if you want to know more about this first expansion, here is our test of Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree .

ELDEN RING: 5 THINGS TO DO TO PREPARE FOR SHADOW OF THE ERDTREE

Get ready to start the DLC

Unlike what you might imagine, it is not necessary to complete Elden Ring to be able to access the contents of Shadow of the Erdtree. This doesn’t mean that all players who own the expansion will be able to start it immediately, as there are some requirements to meet and, unfortunately, there doesn’t appear to be an option to start the expansion immediately.

As confirmed by FromSoftware itself, only the Lightless who have already defeated both Radahn the Celestial Scourge and Mohg the Lord of Blood can access the new area of ​​the Interregnum . So if you are in a New Game Plus and have not yet eliminated these two dangerous enemies, reach them as soon as possible and teach them a lesson.

Fully upgrade your Flasks

Before venturing into the new area of ​​Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree and facing the dangers that lie within it, it would be preferable to arrive prepared.

In this regard, we suggest you start collecting all the Golden Seeds and the Sacred Tears , i.e. the two types of collectibles that allow you to maximize healing: the former allow you to increase the number of healing flasks that can be transported and the latter improve the healing effect of each consumable. If you don’t know where to find them, you can help yourself with the popular Elden Ring interactive maps , thanks to which it’s a breeze to find anything around the Interregnum.

Collect the strongest equipment

Another thing you absolutely must do before venturing into Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree is to collect all those objects that could be useful to you during the expansion. We are talking in general about weapons, armor, Talismans and War Ashes .

These are objects that often have unique characteristics and, for example, alter statistics and increase resistance to certain types of damage. Since we don’t know what awaits us in the DLC, having any type of equipment will allow us to be ready for anything.

Improved weapons

As we said above, it is not essential that you complete the story of Elden Ring to explore the contents of the expansion , but this does not mean that the challenges proposed by Shadow of the Erdtree are not particularly arduous

.

Precisely for this reason, it is very important that you collect all the resources and upgrade your favorite weapons to the maximum possible: only in this way will you be sure to have an offensive potential worthy of the new enemies. In this regard, here is a list of the new weapons in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree .

Get ready for a respec

Those who want to have the absolute certainty of being able to easily face all the new challenges of Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree should also prepare for a respec. If you don’t know what we’re talking about, we’re referring to that particular game mechanic through which players can redistribute all the statistical points spent up to that moment , so as to modify the build in a more or less important way. In this way, you can make some changes to the parameters of your Senzaluce and ensure that it can better face some bosses or enemies in the DLC.

To perform the respec in Elden Ring you need the Larva’s Tears , a few examples of which are found around the Interregnum: once you have collected one, you can take it to Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon . Obviously you must first defeat this NPC in the form of a boss in the area called Daya Lucaria Academy.
