Elden Ring is a game for which many felt that a pacifist run (finishing without attacking an enemy) would never be possible. This is primarily because the game is so vast and there are so many difficult bosses that gamers felt it was a task that should be left alone.

Recently, however, a YouTuber named "Iron Pineapple” pulled off the impossible, completing the pacifist run successfully in Elden Ring for the first time. The community was quick to react to it, as most of them could not come to terms with this massive feat.

Some people can't even beat the game WITH attacks! 😂#EldenRing onemoregame.ph/player-beats-e…

One such gamer tweeted:

Obviously, Iron Pineapple had to spend a lot of time experimenting with a variety of concepts, such as spirit summons, possible cheese angles, and required incantations, before achieving this feat.

Before providing a little more information on the run, it is important to know exactly what a Pacifist's run is. This is a run where players basically complete the entire game without landing a single hit on the enemy.

It obviously sounds absurd, but the introduction of spirit summons in Elden Ring is what makes the Pacifist's Run doable. In fact, in the case of Iron Pineapple, that is exactly how he finished the entire game.

It was, however, not as easy as he had to figure out various unique ways to deal with bosses in the game, such as Godfrey, Morgott, Radahn and the Radagon. He used a variety of spirit summons, such as the Rotten Stray Ashes, Fanged Imp Ashes, Mimic Tear Ashes, and Greatshield Soldier Ashes.

However, merely using spirit summons was not enough, as they would often end up dying in fights. So, he brought some really powerful healing incantations and continued to cast them in battle, long enough for the spirit summons to deal the necessary damage.

Sometimes, when he used the Rotten Stray Ashes, the spirit summons would end up dying. However, once the scarlet rot was inflicted, the boss eventually died, and all that he had to do was wait it out.

On April 3, 2022, he published the full run on his YouTube account. Since then, the community has been going wild. Every player who watched the video was quick to praise Iron Pineapple for the effort he put in.

While he did use spirit summons, he had to spend a lot of time developing unique strategies in order to deal with the bosses. These plans were not just a mark of his mastery over the game, but they also provided valuable information to those players who have struggled to beat the same using normal methods as well.
