Elden Ring

The most popular mod for Elden Ring gives you the Easy Mode, which many fans radically dislike

As with many open-world RPGs, there is also a mod scene for Elden Ring. However, the most popular mod for the game is very controversial: a self-made Easy Mode. MyMMO tells you more.

The Nexus Mods website is actually mainly associated with other open-world RPGs such as Skyrim or Fallout. But players will also find all sorts of mods and tweaks for Elden Ring on this website, with which you can adapt your gameplay as needed.

On Nexus Mods, players can download gameplay mods created by other fans for free. These mods can improve the graphics, tweak the balancing a bit or bring completely new mechanics and items into play.

The most popular mod for Elden Ring promises the radical change that many players want but hardcore fans consider impossible: an easy mode.

Mod for “Easy Mode” comes in 3 versions

How does this mod work? User odashikonbu’s mod “Easy Mode for Elden Ring” says it has only one goal: “To make the game easier for frustrated players”.

The mod is available in 3 versions:

  • Version 1 – Damage Adjustments Only:
    • The player takes 50% less damage.
    • You do 25% more damage.
    • Your attacks have double damage radius.
    • Healing and mana potions are twice as good.
  • Version 2 – damage adjustments and 10x runes:
    • All adjustments from version 1.
    • In addition, players get 10 times as many runes.
    • Weapon upgrades now only require a blacksmith stone.
  • Version 3 – Personal adjustments:

No matter which version of Easy Mode you choose, you’re missing out on one important thing: Elden Ring’s multiplayer.

Because for a mod to work, you have to start the game in Steam without anti-cheat – which in turn automatically disables multiplayer completely.

Easy Mode for Elden Ring? This easy mode mod is currently the most popular Elden Ring download on Nexus Mods. It has already been downloaded more than 50,000 times.

Due to the topic, this mod is also discussed controversially. In 500 comments on the Easy Mode Mod, a well-known question is discussed again: Can a game like Elden Ring even have an Easy Mode?

“I think I’m still getting the real Dark Souls experience”

The discussion surrounding Elden Ring difficulty is a heated and well-known one. Ever since Demon’s Souls, the first FromSoftware game of this kind, the community has been arguing about the beginner-friendliness of these games.

We also asked you about the subject – with a clear answer. In our survey, 3 out of 4 MeinMMO users spoke out against an easy mode:

Does Elden Ring need an Easy Mode? You have a clear opinion

In the comments on Nexus Mods, the discussions are also very heated. A back-and-forth between advocates and those radically opposed to such changes is particularly common.

User rykentharr thanks the creator of the mod:

Thank you for this mod. It has saved me a tremendous amount of grind, stress and frustration. […] I’ve beaten the game twice already without mods and got completely mentally devastated. This mod made my third playthrough so much more bearable.

NaraApricots also writes:

Thanks a lot for this! I’m a total newbie who has never played a game that requires dodging as a key part of the game, so this saves me a lot of trouble and I can slowly get used to dodging.

I still die a little, and I was thrilled when I defeated Godrick. So I think I’m still getting the real Dark Souls experience.

However, another user says: “You lie to yourself, but that’s okay”.

There is also a lot of rejection for this mod. AFlyingWilly101 says something like:

git gud, holding hands like a baby is not how the game is supposed to be played. You can honestly make it so much easier for yourself just by playing the game and exploring the world a little lmao

What do you say about this mod? Do you think it’s appropriate, or does it contradict the “philosophy” of the Souls games? Do you think users of this mod still have the “real” gaming experience? Let us know in the comments.

MeinMMO author Christos Tsogos recently presented a different kind of “Easy Mode” – his incredibly powerful mage build:
