Elden Ring Fans know well how frustrating it can be when their other players use the “hidden path ahead” or “try to attack” messages, a reference to one of FromSoftware’s infamous walls of illusions. – Illusion walls conceal secret rooms in castles or hidden passages in dungeons. Sure, you’ve smashed a sword against a wall expecting a fun secret after reading one of these messages, only to be rejected and verified that the “lie ahead” message you also saw near that is legal.
But a player’s discovery in Elden Ring may have just rewritten the rules about illusion walls in FromSoftware’s new game. A member of Elden Ring subreddit, teristam, posted on Friday that they found out a secret wall in the game requires dozens of hits – 50 hits!! – let it go.
Here’s a look at the hyper-virtual wall in action:
That wall – you probably hit it yourself, because it stands out – is in the Volcano Manor, and it only provides access to a room that you can easily get to. In fact, it is likely that you were already in this room, where Rya and Knight Bernahl lived.
Elden Ring players on the subreddit quickly went from “oh, great” to “oh, no” after witnessing teristam’s discovery.
“You know, we have to go back to the whole game and check every wall right now,” said RexLongbone.
Turns out there is at least one other super-illusory wall like this one, also in Volcano Manor.
doubt I was the first to find it but there is another wall of virtual machines at the bottom of the tunnel that also takes 50 hits. I assume some of the walls in this area just happened to have values set too high or something haha pic.twitter.com/Mczbmm2g6a

But this particular Volcano Manor wall seems to be more of an anomaly than a gate. After defeating this strange new wall in armed combat myself, I can confirm that it doesn’t work like other illusion walls. First, breaking the wall doesn’t make the traditional illusion wall breaking sound – it simply disappears. Second, these walls will revival Should you rest in a place of grace. It’s possible that this stone wall is a special example, possibly even unique to the game – it may have been inserted as an object to separate Rya’s room from Ser Bernahl’s room, which is not supposed to be. fighting spells, from the corridors full of poisonous snail monsters.
Or maybe there are dozens of walls like this in Elden Ring, with exciting secrets and powerful weapons behind each. There’s only one way to find out…
