Do Elden Ring Bosses Scale With the Player?

Do Elden Ring Bosses Scale With the Player?

Elden RIng has some serious bosses in the game, and if you aren’t prepared for them, you will have a very hard time. If you are struggling, then you can leave the boss and come back later That is the best part of this game. One question that a lot of new players to the genre have, is if the bosses scale to your level?

Elden Ring bosses don’t scale with the player, as long as they are not playing Multiplayer. The bosses will have the same amount of health no matter what level you are, so you don’t have to worry about fighting insanely hard bosses. If you are having trouble, you can come back later more powerful than you were before.

This FromSoft game is by far the most welcoming to new players because you don’t have to fight a boss at that moment. You can walk away for a bit, level up, and then come back for a rematch. It gives the player a ton of room to grow and it doesn’t force any really annoying fight on you, until very late game that is.

Do Elden Ring bosses scale in Multiplayer?

Yes, bosses do scale in Multiplayer. Every single person you bring in increases the boss’s health dramatically. This is to make the game more challenging and not to make the game extremely easy. If you could just summon a person and the boss’s health was the same, you will just defeat it insanely quickly.

The boss’s health scales with the number of players, but it still doesn’t scale by the player’s levels, so if you bring in a Level 200 player to fight Margit, the boss won’t be scaled up to his level. You don’t have to worry about that.

If you do play with a friend, make sure you understand how the Multiplayer works so you can compensate for each boss you fight. Most people who play with friends want to play casually, so if you do play with other people, try to do more things than just fight bosses because they can get pretty hard with the more people that join.

Is Multiplayer harder than playing Solo?

As we said before, it can be harder depending on what class you chose and how many people you brought in. Obviously, the more people you have, the harder the boss will be, but its aggression will be dispersed among all the people there. The difficulty is made harder how you play so make sure to always be ready for anything.

It can also get a little crazy with a ton of people, especially if you are fighting a boss with a lot of Area of Effect attacks, so try to take turns wailing at the boss’s health bar. You don’t want the boss to do an AoE attack and you all die because everyone was in the vicinity. If you play solo though, all the boss’s aggression is on you and that is what makes the game difficult.
