Elden Ring Player Discovers OP Item That Breaks The Game

An Elden Ring player has discovered an OP item that breaks the game. Well, it seems to break the game in the player’s favour.

Elden Ring FAQ: Every Guide You’ll Need

YouTuber syrobe was curious about the purpose of the Raptured Crystals in Elden Ring. It was thought that this item is useless. To be fair, apparently, one Raptured Crystal serves little purpose.


However, after a CSI level investigation, syrobe discovered that if you combine two Ruptured Crystals, along with other items, you will deal unholy damage!

Furthermore, syrobe reveals in the video that with a certain character build and items, you can deal a massive damage total of nearly 8,000. That being said, you will do damage to yourself. Yet, if you’re surrounded by a group of enemies or an invader, then it’s bye-bye for them. Just remember to top up your health once you go kaboom!

There are a lot of technical details into how you successfully implement this build. The video from syrobe is just over 7 minutes long. But if you’re an Elden Ring player, this could be the best 7 minutes that you’ll spend today. Hopefully, FromSoftware won’t nerf this tactic in the coming days.
