One of Elden Ring’s most difficult bosses has now been made even trickier.
It’s thanks to a bug in the latest update that causes the infamous Malenia to self-heal when other players are summoned in to help.
The bug was spotted by the now legendary player Let Me Solo Her, who regularly leaves a summon sign outside the boss fight to help those struggling to defeat her.
A YouTube video from the player shows the problem: Malenia is meant to self-heal but only when striking the player. Now she can self-heal at any point if another player is summoned.
The latest update, more intentionally, nerfed the Swarm of Flies incantation that was previously a popular strategy against Malenia. Other balance changes were also included.
Let Me Solo Her has even been made into a summonable spirit ash thanks to a new mod.
