Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree DLC is exactly as incredible as players expected, and the enemies are not pulling any punches. If the player isn’t the recommended level for the DLC, they might want to turn back and do some farming until they’re ready for the DLC.

The game introduces many new items, weapons, and armor sets that are unique in one way or another. One of the new weapons is the Poisoned Hand , a unique type of weapon, aptly named “Fist” that wasn’t in the base game. Here’s how players can get their “hands” on this poisonous menace.
