Elden Ring Players have had a game day with messages they can leave each other in the game, but one particular note is being used more than others. The phrase “finger but hole” is constantly used by players, as its open-world explorers are happily taking advantage of its message patterns.
Elden Ring’s message wants you to touch the holes
Fingers are an important part of Elden Ring, with players using them to access the multiplayer component of the game. As a result, the word ‘finger’ appears in the game’s message patterns, allowing the player to choose from a number of words to create a sentence that would theoretically help other adventurers. For example, players can use templates to issue a message informing others of a nearby chest, or a particularly strong enemy, or even a hidden secret. However, since FromSoftware included the words ‘finger’, ‘but’ and ‘hole’ in its message templates, there was only one way this would happen.
Exploring the Elden Ring regularly encounters messages asking you to “try your finger but hole” or some other unfortunate combination of these words. Therefore, when others read a message and think it might help them on their journey, they are encouraged to do an impromptu rectal exam themselves instead.
This common-sense recommendation has not been lost on players, who have used social media to point out numerous “fingers but holes” messages:
Half of Elden Ring is telling strangers to point to holes and objects and say “dog”. And that’s why it’s an instant classic.

After 3 hours of Elden Ring, the best advice is:
Tried finger but hole

The Elden Ring may be a strong contender for Game of the Year and a huge achievement for FromSoftware, but that won’t stop players from taking this modern classic and using it to claim Other players discover their own spots. Time will tell whether players will become more creative with their messages or will continue to insist that we ignore them, but we are enjoying these messages in the meantime.
In other news, the Bethesda.net launcher will stop working on PCs. The Street Fighter 6 logo was also criticized for appearing to be an $80 stock image.
