Elden Ring Stats Reveal Players Have Died Over 9 Billion Times Since Launch, Malenia Attempts, and More

Elden Ring celebrated its one-year anniversary last month, and now publisher Bandai Namco has released an infographic detailing player deaths and stats since launch. According to the chart, players have collectively died over 9 billion times to date, with 69% of them from NPC/enemy damage, 15% from status effects, and 2% from other players ( online PvP). Of course, the stats didn’t leave out developer FromSoftware’s wonky platforming mechanics that led players to their deaths, which caused 12% of the total fatalities in Elden Ring. It’s no secret that the Empyrean Malenia, Blade of Miquella was the toughest boss in the game, with infographics revealing that players attempted to fight her 329 million times.

According to Bandai Namco, Elden Ring players have launched 5.9 billion boss fights since launch, with the no. 2 position taken by Margit the Fell Omen — 281 million. While certainly an easy affair on New Game+ and beyond, this boss was a choke point for underleveled players at first, who instead explored the world and leveled up their characters – like they were. supposed to – tried to rush through the game. The Limgrave Tree Sentinel trudging outside the Church of Elleh came in third with 277 million attempts, while the last boss Radagon of the Order of gold took fourth place with 148 million. Its second phase, Elden Beast Attempts don’t really matter here, as defeating Radagon is the only way to do it – unless you’re using mods. It’s no surprise to see Starscourge Radahn all the way down to fifth – 139 million attempts – given that his arena in Caelid is littered with markers calling on NPCs for help.

The infographic also features numbers for the multiplayer component of Elden Ring. Co-op summons for help in boss fights took up 88% of the summon pie chart, while invasions where players tried to ruin another player’s game online only took up 12% . This number and the aforementioned 2% PvP kills show just how much PvP functionality takes up a tiny space in the colossal Elden Ring. Gravitational Rock Sling was the most used spell in the game, followed by Crystal Torrent, which fires multiple crystal shards to deal piercing damage. Glinstone Pebble came in third, followed closely by the GreatBlade Phalanx, then Rotten Breath, which allows the caster to conjure a plume of decaying gas.

The Erdtree’s Self-Healing Blessing was the most gained incantation in Elden Ring, followed by the Bestial Sling, which you get from Gurranq, Beast Clergyman, by giving him the second Deathroot. The Golden Vow buff incantation came in third, while The Flame of Frenzy took fourth, allowing players to inflict madness on enemies through flames that shoot out of their amber eyes. Bestial Vitality completed fifth place.

Late last month, without much fanfare, FromSoftware announced the first major expansion for Elden Ring – Shadow of the Erdtree, which is currently in development. At the time, we also received a teaser photo for the same, featuring a mysterious blonde figure – presumably, Miquella – riding Torrent, our trusty in-game steed. In the distance, two intertwined trees can also be seen, and letting golden sap flow.

Elden Ring is now available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X.
