We spoke to Let Me Solo Her, the Elden Ring community hero we need and deserve

In the dark, unforgiving world of Elden Ring, there are no characters that can truly be considered heroes – not even the protagonist. But one community member has risen to fame in the last week: a naked man wearing nothing but a glass on his head, waiting outside the door for the game’s toughest boss, with a polite request of a name: “Let me solo her.” “.

Let Me Solo Her (who asked in an email to use either his Elden Ring nickname, or LMSH for short) is a humble, altruistic player who has been dropping his summoning shield in front of Malenia’s boss fight door for at least a week. While not a mandatory fight for completing Elden Ring, Malenia is the culmination of several side quests and is infamous in the community as one of the most difficult battles FromSoftware has ever created. Of course, there are many players who feel like they want to finish it to completion but are struggling with it. Enter LMSH.

While Elden Ring is mostly a solo adventure, players can choose to work together by using certain items that reveal “summoning marks” – golden markings on the ground that they use to mark other players (who have chosen to summon ) can call their games and work together until a dungeon is completed, a boss defeated, or someone dies. In the case of LMSH, he simply drops his summoning shield in front of Malenia’s boss door and once summoned, goes into the boss chamber and immediately sets about destroying Malenia without the help of others. This allows anyone who hosts it in their game to get the kill and continue with the story, but also puts on a hell of a show.

LMSH’s story is simple: he fell in love with Souls games after playing Dark Souls 3 and was previously an avid PvP player in other FromSoftware games. When Elden Ring came out, he chose the Samurai class and played through the game like anyone else. He is on New Game+ at the moment and is currently working on completing all the side quests.

But as adept as its fights against Malenia may look from the outside, LMSH wasn’t always a Malenia killer. He tells me that his first attempt to kill Malenia in his own game was tough – it took him 242 attempts, and it took him two summonses to finish her off. But precisely because of this extreme difficulty, LMSH felt motivated to help others.

“I chose Malenia to help others because I fell in love with her design,” says LMSH. “All of her attacks are very graceful and she is unforgiving as a boss. Their infamous waterfowl dance is considered the [hardest] Dodge movesets from a FromSoft boss so far, so I decided to prove to others that it wasn’t impossible.”

So he started working and practicing on his build. He has about 200 total hours with this character, is level 179 and has no plans to level up any further. LMSH currently wields two katanas – a Rivers of Blood+9 in his left hand and a Cold Uchigatana +25 with Hoarfrost Stomp. His talismans, for those wondering, are the Green Turtle, Viridian Amber Medallion, Kindred of Rot’s Exultation, and Claw Talisman.

At one point he stripped naked and put a pot on his head. I ask him why.

“It’s an ongoing tradition of Soulsborne games that the naked players are the most powerful beings in the game,” he replies. “Why wear armor if you don’t intend to get hit at all? And the pot is a good luck charm for the character Iron Fist Alexander who I admire.”

Now, with hours of practice, LMSH is a Malenia Master. He says he’s gotten very good at reading their animations, attacks, and sound queues with ease. He’s lost count of how many Malenias he’s defeated, but he estimates it’s somewhere between 300 and 400. However, LMSH doesn’t have a perfect record and admits he’s lost “more than I care to admit” to them.

“Sometimes the delay between the host and I is too great, sometimes killing me instantly or missing crucial dodge timing in Malenia’s Waterfowl Dance,” he says. “I want to apologize to those I failed at.”

One myth he’s keen to debunk, however, is that he evades people who try to help him. Although his name specifically asks players who summon him to allow him to fight alone, LMSH does not drop when others join. Who walks around with the same name, who leaves at the first sign of collaboration is apparently a scammer.

“I’m not the ‘let me solo her’ in this video,” he assures me. “I always carry a jug on my head and never fold a Malenia boss fight. If the host or other summoning decides to help, I have no problem whatsoever.”

LMSH quickly became a legend in the Elden Ring community for supporting so many and unusual performances. A wave of fan art Depicted destroying Malenia has appeared in recent days, including a 3D printed sculpture that LMSH says he will get for himself. He is thrilled with the community support for his unusual endeavor and the numerous kind words from players he helped.

Though he plans to move to New Game+2 at some point, LMSH says he really enjoys fighting Malenia, especially because it “feels so satisfying dodging her waterfowl dance.” He intends to continue helping other players in his spare time for a while and notes that you can find his summoning shield outside Malenia’s door on PC, usually between 3pm and 10pm CST.

“I want to thank the Elden Ring community for all of the support and hype surrounding my character,” he concludes. “My summoning mark will always be below for the afflicted in need.”
