One Elden Ring player with 765 hours in the game has managed to get one of their characters to max level in the game. Elden Ring has an upgrade system similar to FromSoftware’s Dark Souls game, except instead of players using souls to upgrade, they use runes.
When players have enough runes, they can visit the Fields of Grace and spend them to improve a character’s stats. Each level of upgrade in Elden Ring costs more than the previous one, so reaching the highest level in the game requires a lot of runes. Still, some Elden Ring players have put in the work and managed to make it to the top in FromSoftware’s open-world epic, though it’s not a big club right now.
Reddit user Fireman_Artsen, one of the most recent to reach the highest level in the Elden Ring, shared their achievement on Reddit. The post garnered 11,000 upvotes, with many impressed by Fireman_Artsen’s sheer dedication to the game. According to Reddit users, they have a total of 765 hours in the Elden Ring, but this is spread across multiple characters. They have “nearly” 500 hours of character usage to reach the highest level in the game.
What is the maximum level of Elden Ring?
Job done in Eldenring by u/Fireman_Artsen Reaching max level in Elden Ring means reaching level 713, costing a total of 1,692,558,415 runes. To achieve this, Fireman_Artsen beat enough games to reach New Game+ 8, while also doing a lot of co-op and rune farming. There are a number of ways players can farm runes in the Elden Ring, but even the most effective methods require a significant investment of time from anyone who wants to reach the highest levels in the game.
It’s possible that FromSoftware will increase the Elden Ring’s level cap with new DLC, though that seems unlikely. After all, the vast majority of Elden Ring players are probably nowhere near the level cap. People can unlock all the achievements and trophies in Elden Ring without even getting close to the cap, so increasing the level cap of the DLC will only benefit a small number of players.
Regardless, those who do hit the max level cap should be well prepared for the upcoming Elden Ring DLC, Shadows of Erdtree. Not much is known about the Elden Ring DLC other than that it’s coming later this year, so fans of FromSoftware’s open-world epic should soon have more challenges to conquer and more areas to explore .
Elden Ring is out now on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
