Red rot in Elden Ring – how to use, how to make pills and get rid of the effect

 

Red rot is one of the strongest negative effects that the protagonist of Elden Ring can face . However, you can use this effect to deal additional damage to your enemies. In this guide, we’ll cover everything you need to know about Red Rot in the game.

What is Red Rot
Red Rot is a status effect that applies to all characters in the game. It can occur during attacks by certain enemies, as well as by contact with the surface of the red swamps. It does not kill instantly, but it imposes a negative effect for a certain time, which deals high damage.

Red rot accumulates gradually – the process can be tracked on the scale that appears in the center of the screen. If this happens, then the hero’s health will begin to decrease until the scale is reduced to zero. In order not to waste precious flasks on restoring vitality, use pills or spells .

Consumables

If desired, you can poison mobs and bosses that are not immune to this effect with Red Rot. The easiest option is to use Rotten Melee Grease and a Pot of Rot as a throwable. The recipes for making them can be found in the Nomad Warrior’s Handbook (22) . You will find it near the Great Cloister, a place of grace. You will need to get to the other side of the red lake.

If you’re playing as an archer, use putrid bone arrows. The recipe needed to make them is sold by the nomad merchant, who is located west of the arena with Radan.

Weapon

There are eight weapons in the game that apply the Red Rot status to enemies. But it makes no sense to talk about them in detail – almost all of them are too slow and not very effective. The only exception is the Ant-Thorn Rapier . She has a high attack speed and decent damage. In addition, you can strengthen it with the Ashes of War .

To get this weapon, go to the point indicated on the map. Defeat the red phantom and take the rapier from its body.
