Elden Ring's Goldmask Looks Different When Seen as a Summon

Recommended Posts

From Software loves to conceal interesting details in places where players may not track down them, and Elden Ring is the same. It's all however certain Elden Ring players will find new clues attached to the RPG's legend and story months and years from now. The latest example was discovered by an Elden Ring player who had been summoned as a cooperator by another player. While their center partner was interacting with Goldmask, the ghostly apparition for the NPC revealed a secret truth about them.

Elden Ring players who have interacted with Goldmask already realize that the tall, skinny character isn't particularly animated. They stand almost totally still with their arms and fingers outstretched, a behavior that Brother Corhyn describes as cogitation and contemplation of the Erdtree and the Golden Order. In any case, whenever summoned into another world, Goldmask's ghostly apparition is instead in an altogether different pose. Goldmask is grasping their head in their arms as assuming they're being tormented or going mad.

Those who have already progressed through Goldmask and Brother Corhyn's story probably already understand what's happening here. Corhyn explains it to the player straightforwardly, saying that as they neared the Erdtree Goldmask envisioned Marika, the one genuine divine force of the Golden Order. Be that as it may, King Consort Radagon also appeared to Goldmask. To Corhyn, Goldmask appeared confounded, yet clearly the subject wracked Goldmask deeply. He didn't move an inch, physically, yet his psyche unraveled.












This revelation isn't probably going to change many Elden Ring players' views, as convincing a discovery as it very well might be. Following this second in-game, the player discovers that Marika and Radagon are one. Goldmask takes this information and uses it to ultimately create the Mending Rune of Perfect Order, a critical component to an Elden Ring finishing where the player "repairs" and continues the Golden Order. On the off chance that Goldmask went insane along the way, it perhaps taints this closure in a way players didn't realize previously.

Perhaps the biggest question is if this discovery - that the shade of Goldmask was different from the way he was presented in the player's own reality - can be found for different NPCs, as well. Elden Ring players may have to brush the game again as a summoned cooperator, really taking a look at NPCs to see assuming they're different.

This just goes to show that there are surprises to discover in Elden Ring yet. The odd Goldmask discovery could be an insight into different secrets, or it might have been a bug that From Software left uncorrected mid-improvement. One way or the other, Elden Ring's legend is proceeding to expand in an astonishing new way.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
