Elden Ring’s beloved Pot Friends aren’t all as pleasant as they could appear.
Besides Solaire of Astora, it isn’t usually that FromSoftware video games have a mascot behind them. Yet, that is been precisely the case with Elden Ring and the Pot Friends. These sentient pots have been paraded round alongside the game at occasions like The Game Awards, and have typically been assumed to be the Tarnished’s finest pal.
That is not the case for all of them, nevertheless. As reported by IGN, the Pot Friends aren’t fairly as simplistic as you may need first thought, and some of them may even be thought of enemies. Let’s begin off with the excellent news – some Pot Boys are pleasant. Alexander, the massive pot that was seen at The Game Awards and that may be discovered caught within the floor in-game, is a pal to the participant and can even level you in the direction of an necessary location.
That’s the place the excellent news ends, sadly. Elden Ring’s dungeons reportedly characteristic pots each massive and small that may assault the participant on sight. These pots are identified formally as Living Jars and the participant’s solely choices upon seeing them is both to run away or smash them to items. Take a guess what most are going to be doing.
IGN studies that these giant pots aren’t simply disappointingly unfriendly, however that the big ones can really be fairly harmful and difficult to defeat.

FromSoft followers most likely aren’t all that shocked to listen to this, as even Solaire of Astora can flip violent relying on the participant’s actions. With this surprising flip of occasions, we’ll most likely maintain off on hoping for a Pot Friend amiibo anytime quickly. At least we’ll all the time have Alexander.
