One Elden Ring: Shadow Of The Erdtree Boss Fight Type Is A Huge Missed Opportunity

: is another stunning FromSoftware DLC, yet for all its open-world refinements, gruesome enemy designs, and fancy new weapons, it still struggles with one of its most iconic field bosses. The new expansion features four new Ghostflame Dragon fights sprinkled throughout the surprisingly vast Land of Shadow. Despite their undead makeovers, however, fighting these drakes is just as repetitive and tedious as it is in the Lands Between.

Some have a couple of unique AoEs, or might chuck in an extra swipe here and there, but generally speaking, the same simplistic tactics that worked for Agheel also work for the rest of his kin. All their attacks, except for the tail flick, charged AoEs, and any aerial bombardments, can
