An Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree player has recently discovered a wholesome detail about the stone golems in the Ruined Forge Lava Intake: they pet their loyal lava blobs. The new Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree expansion is filled with several secrets and strange places, but most gamers would not expect to see such a shockingly cute moment in this bleak open-world game.

Elden Ring’s eagerly awaited DLC was recently released, and it’s already a massive hit loved by most critics. Right now, Shadow of the Erdtree has an average of 94 on OpenCritic, with 98% of the critics who reviewed the expansion recommending it. This puts Shadow of the Erdtree among the highest-rated DLCs ever released, surpassing The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine and other games.


Elden Ring Player Finds a Hidden Passage in Shadow of the Erdtree’s Shadow Keep

An Elden Ring player discovers a well-hidden secret passage in Shadow of the Erdtree’s Shadow Keep, sharing it with the community.

Now, an Elden Ring player called Cpt-Crab discovered something very wholesome: the Golem Smiths in Ruined Forge Lava Intake pet their Fire Blobs when the player is not attacking them. The gamer shared a 12-second video of the moment on r/Eldenring, comparing the Fire Blobs to dogs. This discovery was praised by the Elden Ring community, as gamers gave over 1,700 upvotes for Cpt-Crab’s post. In the post’s comments, some gamers also highlighted other moments when Elden Ring is cute, such as when wild wolves chase invisible glittering beetles around as if they were playing with them.

Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree’s Golem Smiths Pet Their “Dogs”

The new Elden Ring expansion brought several new enemies to the game, and some of them are quite curious. For instance, players recently discovered that Elden Ring’s huge Furnace Golems are weak to fire, despite this not making much real-world sense considering they’re actually on fire when fighting.

While most gamers would argue that both Golem Smiths and Furnace Golems can be beaten with some effort, some enemies are quite a pain for Elden Ring players. One example is the masked assassin Curseblade who is wrecking many Shadow of the Erdtree players at the start of the DLC.

While Shadow of the Erdtree is being praised by most critics, it’s not exactly loved by all players due to its high difficulty level, which is higher than the base game. Among the Elden Ring players who find Shadow of the Erdtree too hard are many veterans who did not expect some of the bosses to be so difficult to beat. In any case, the DLC added many new enemies, and it’s likely that gamers will find the most optimal strategies to beat them all over time.
