Are you looking to spice up your Elden Ring streams and give your viewers something extra to enjoy? Why not try out a challenge run! These runs are a great way to add excitement to your streams, and they can be a lot of fun for both you and your audience.
Here are four challenge-run ideas that you can try out in Elden Ring, the Game of the Year:
No Upgrades Run: In this run, you'll need to complete the game without upgrading any of your equipment or stats. This means you'll have to rely on your skill and strategy, rather than stronger gear, to defeat enemies. This run can be especially challenging, but it's also a lot of fun and can add a unique twist to your streams.
No Shield Run: In this run, you'll need to complete the game without using a shield. This can be especially challenging because shields are a common way for players to block enemy attacks. However, it can also be a lot of fun (and traumatic).
No Rolling Run: In this run, you'll need to complete the game without using the roll maneuver to evade enemy attacks. This can be especially challenging because rolling is a key part of the combat system in Souslike games.
No Healing Item Run: In this run, you'll need to complete the game without using any healing items, such as Crimson or Cerulean Tears. This can be a very challenging run and you must be pretty tanky (or master of rolling) to finish the game.
If you're looking for some inspiration for your challenge runs, be sure to check out some of the following streamers who are famous for their Souls series challenge runs:
Happy Hob: Happy Hob is known for his God Runs in the Souls series, and his streams are always a lot of fun to watch - he calls himself the true Edge Lord.

Vaatividya: Vaatividya is a popular streamer who is known for his Souls series challenge runs, including his no bonfire/grace and no healing item runs. He currently holds the title of World First Elden Ring No Hit Run.
So why not give one of these challenge runs a try in your next Elden Ring stream? Your viewers will surely appreciate watching you... "overcome your challenges" and you'll have a lot of fun in the process. Happy streaming!
