Like previous FromSoftware games that can be framed in the saga soulson Elden Ring we meet different NPCs (non-player characters) with side quests with several stages that are not recorded anywhere in the game. Update 1.03 released on March 17th added, at least, that the position of known characters would be recorded on the map. But also implement dozens of small changes of which the Twitter account has echoed @illusorywall (he Kotaku), among them making more accessible the Boc side quest. if you don’t want spoil even secondary activities, stop reading right here.
For some players, Boc will be the first side quest they encounter. Others probably won’t find it throughout their adventure through the Midlands. Boc is at beginning of Necrolimbo, near the soldiers’ camp that you see in the early stages of the game. Near the area where the spyglass is, is this demihuman… albeit very well camouflaged. In fact, completely transformed into a bush.
When the Lightless pass near the bush, they hear the Boc’s voice asking for help, and following it, one may end up discovering that it is the bush that speaks: a smack and goodbye to the transformation. The problem was that you had to go too close to hear the demihuman, and after patch 1.03 he was can you hear from the stone path that passes nearby, a more common traffic area for most players. Not only that, but FromSoftware has placed an item nearby for players to get closer.
But wait, there’s more! The distance from which his dialog triggers was massively expanded. Like it wasn’t just doubled or tripled, it reaches out MUCH further, allowing you to hear him from the road. pic.twitter.com/c5KRTqyLqW illusory wall (@illusorywall) April 5, 2022
In our guide you we explain how to find Boc (the following steps to complete the mission can be found in the Wiki) that since Kotaku qualify as “touching”. Although what he offers for completing the quest is nothing more than the chance to change appearance free of chargeit is in the narrative where we talk about how a semi-human creature rejected here and there faces life.
An instant video game classic
Elden Ring is available from February 25 at PC (Steam), PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4 and Xbox One. In its analysis we said:Elden Ring is not only the best game FromSoftware has made to date, but also one of the best video games of all times. A colossal and unthinkable work that does not stop giving us new surprises at every turn that we give and that has come to become an instant classic, forever changing the paradigm of what it means to live a grand open world adventure“.
