This Elden Ring Player Survey Reveals Our Favorite Weapons, Spirit Ashes, Areas, and Bosses

A new survey from Elden Ring developer FromSoftware has revealed our favorite weapons, bosses, and more during our time in the Lands Between.

Conducted by Famitsu and translated by FrontlineJP (thanks, NME), the survey was completed by 1,700 people, the majority of whom (1,509) were men between the ages of 25 and 29.


Almost all of the respondents confirmed that they liked the story and the world of Elden Ring, as well as the exploration, terrain, and boss fight. The item crafting and gear upgrade system were the least liked aspects of Elden Ring.

Our favorite NPCs are Ranni, Iron Fist Alexander, and Blaidd respectively, while Diallos and Enia were the least memorable. The most popular foe was a close race between Starscourge Radahn and Malenia, with Margit – a fight no one can forget – coming in third place. Caelid tops the list of most memorable places – no surprise either – followed closely by Limgrave and Leyndell, Royal Capital. It seems that very few people thought the Giant’s Peaks were particularly memorable.

Most played as a Drifter and most prioritized Vigor over any other stat, with fewer players opting for a Faith build. We like Katanas the most – over half consider them their favorite weapon type – followed by Greatswords, Medium Shields and Staves respectively. Large claws were the least popular among respondents.

The most popular weapon skills and Ashes of War were Bloodhound Step through a country mile, while Comet Azur topped the list of favorite sorceries and incantations. Erdtree’s favor was the most precious talisman.

As for Spiritual Ashes? In news that won’t surprise anyone, that award goes to Mimic Tear, followed by Black Knife Tiche and Spirit Jellyfish. The Soldjars of Fortune were the least popular.

There are plenty more results to sift through, so head over to FrontlineJP for the full list, which also revealed that players’ average playtime was between 100 and 150 hours, with most being at level 150 or above ( 824).

Where most of us tried a thousand times to kill Malenia once, the legend of Elden Ring Let Me Solo Her has now killed a thousand Malenias. Let Me Solo Her became an icon in the Elden Ring community for helping beat Malenia, with many fans producing artwork of the player.
