Elden Ring, like all Soulsborne games, contains a plethora of challenging boss fights that will make your gameplay experience a living nightmare. Some of the game's toughest bosses must be defeated in order to progress in the storyline, while others are optional, meaning you can choose not to fight them if you don't want any more painful challenges.
Malenia, Blade of Miquella is one of the most difficult optional bosses you may face. She's one of those bosses who will make you smash your keyboard in rage. Malenia is a very agile boss who will charge at you constantly, at times without pausing. She is also the type of boss who is difficult to stagger, making her even more difficult to fight.
A month after the release of Elden Ring, a certain player has discovered a simple yet effective counter to her most deadly attack, by utilizing a freezing pot.
This effective method was shared by a Reddit user named toxicBird7, who has gained a ton of upvotes because of the counter. This means that a lot of players really appreciated it since Malenia is such a pain to deal with. Her first phase deadly attack Waterfowl Dance, can be completely negated by throwing the Freezing Pot. Here is the post below.
