Elden Ring Gameplay
The Elden Ring narrative takes place in a location between a great world populated by demigods and blessed by the Elden Ring’s power and Erdtree. These regions are essentially a massive mythical continent encircled by sea. You begin your trip in Limgrave, a southern section of the larger world, as the main character. This area has lush grassy valleys, tall trees, cliffs, and old ruins.
The Elden Ring, which is a relic encased inside a big dazzling golden spectral tree known as Erdtree, was sent down by some unknown god to bless the areas between the Elden Ring. This tree has the main source to bless the land and its inhabitants.
The land was ruled by Queen Marika, who was chosen by the Greater Will, the keeper of the Ring, and had a large family. She then removed the mystery of death by making everyone immortal, except for the Elden Ring and Erdtree, who were not included in this immortality, making them exiled and tarnished.
Night of the Black Knives
After an occurrence known as the Night of the Black Knives, in which a clan of mystery assassins assassinated several of the Queen’s demigods, the Elden Ring was shattered into multiple Great Runes. As a result, a war broke out, destroying the Elden Ring, and the Queen vanished without warning. Demigods, who are the children of Queen Marika the Eternal, each retain one fragment of the ring, but those shards are corrupting the demigods, and the player is entrusted with discovering each shard and restoring the Elden Ring for the sake of the world’s health.
Now, this article is mainly about the Illusory Walls and paths which are the main obstacles in this game. We are going to discuss everything about this in the article and what all you need to know about those walls.
What are the Illusory Walls in Elden Ring?
Illusory walls are barriers put on players by the developers, similar to those found in Dark Souls and incorporated into the Elden Ring. The players are presented with these secret walls to trap them and reveal a hidden passage beyond. These are not genuine rock walls, but rather optical illusions. If you come to a dead end at a spot and can’t find another way out. There’s a good likelihood there are some barriers to getting to another part of the building.
These barriers can be readily eliminated by striking them with your weapon or casting a spell. Doing so will dispel the illusion, and you may be rewarded with a prize, a secret passage, or even bosses. There are multiple walls in Elden Ring, and spotting them might be difficult due to their lack of visibility. It takes several passes by them before it becomes apparent that they are illusions.
