Elden Ring PS5 PS4 PlayStation

While the hype for Elden Ring's incredibly vast expansion, Shadow of the Erdtree, is fast approaching a fever pitch, the vast majority of players will be unable to enter the eagerly-anticipated DLC. One of the base game's tougher boss encounters, Mohg, Lord of Blood, must be defeated to access the Shadow Lands, which Trophy and Steam achievement data suggest not many have managed.

The situation is getting so dire that even Elden Ring publisher Bandai Namco has put out a PSA, reminding players that they are going to need to put in some work to see what fresh hell FromSoftware has dreamed up this time. Streamer Cohh Carnage highlighted the situation on Steam, where just 37.8% (out of a potential 11 million players on the platform alone) of Tarnished have managed to mash Mohg. The situation looks slightly better on PlayStation trackers like PSN Profiles, which sits at a respectable 54.7%. However, as the service is opt-in and used by the most dedicated Trophy Hunters, it's reasonable to assume that this number is heavily skewed by the hardcore. In fact, accounting for all PS5 and PS4 players, as little as 34.7% have beaten the bloody baddie.

Thankfully, for those of you struggling, we've put together guides on both How to Reach Mohgwyn's Palace and How to Beat Mogh, Lord of Blood. You'll still need to dust the cobwebs off, of course, and git gud enough to beat the DLC-blocking boss. Consider yourself warned, however: Shadow of the Erdtree launches on 21st June, so you have less than two weeks to start training.

Did you beat Mohg, Lord of Blood yet? Are you prepared to go on another dark quest in Shadow of the Erdtree? Pray for muscle memory to return in the comments section below.
