The feat was achieved by Twitch streamer Seki, who managed to complete the game without taking a single hit from enemies or suffering any other environmental damage at all over three hours. While the run itself took a relatively short time, he says he spent more than 130 hours in-game to master all its mechanics. There were also several traits he relied on, such as dexterity and intelligence build, the Moonveil katana, and the Rock Sling spell.
“The hardest part of the run by far is the final boss: Elden Beast,” Seki told Kotaku. “It has a specific move that is infamously unfair: Elden Stars. One of the only ways to possibly avoid it is by staggering him while he’s casting the spell. This took dozens of hours of precise practice and training to time correctly.”
While Seki managed to pull off the world’s first no-hit/no-damage run, he’s not putting down the game any time soon: the streamer says he’s now looking to complete an all-Remembrance/no-hit run.
