Let's just say the economy of Elden Ring is a little off kilter. In the Lands Between, you can make a living as a merchant, but if you want to really make some money, you should probably just kill some folks and pick their pockets for valuable runes. Even so, when you're in a mad dash for loot, you're bound to pick up a few things, some of which may prove more beneficial than others.
Visit a merchant to unload your surplus baggage; selling these stuff won't fetch you much, at most a couple hundred runes. In the early game, when nearly everything may kill you instantly, every rune counts. If you wish to succeed as Elden Lord, you need to work hard.
Detrimental Piece of a Ruin
One of the first things you might notice when you enter the Lands Between is all the crumbling buildings in Limgrave. Pieces of wall lie around waiting to be discovered, and the sparkle of tiny stones over their surface will tempt even the most jaded traveler. What role do they play in the lore of the world, if any? What secrets could be contained in these mysterious objects?
Regrettably, not much. In their item descriptions, they allude at a temple that was destroyed when it fell from the sky, but other than that, they aren't really useful. Still, you can exchange them for a small quantity of runes from a merchant, which could come in handy early on.
Grace Mimics appear, at first glance, as if they could be of great assistance. Make your own saving grace that will point the way forward. Awesome!
On the other hand, this phony place of grace doesn't do too much. Even though it looks to be designed for PvP, you shouldn't rest at it because its fetid ray shoots off in an unpredictable direction and it's otherwise pretty much useless. That Patches is selling them should tell you everything you need to know. It's great to use them as a joke to annoy your buddies. It's preferable to have some cash on hand than to have these Elden Ring cheap items taking up space in your warehouse.
Primitive Tools for Making Stone Tools
You'll obtain a sack full of smithing stones at level one or two, and you'll want to hold on to them for the time being. You can discover these very easily, and they are really helpful if you want to compare a new weapon to your existing main. When you walk into a cave, you'll find them almost supine on the floor.
In order to acquire a few runes, a first-level smithing stone is a great item to pawn off because there is an infinite supply of them. You should not pass on anything named "somber" or "old dragon," though. There are just a handful of these valuable gems in existence, and their true worth far exceeds their retail value.
Depending on your personality, the Beast Blood Elden Ring's construction system can be a hit or miss. Some of the things you can make are really practical. However, as the game's combat relies on pattern memory and quick reactions, you can decide to focus on honing your dodging skills instead of worrying about stocking up on supplies.
Due to this, Beast Blood is a hot commodity in the market. It's used in a wide variety of crafts, but the finished products aren't always easy to understand or use. You won't get very far with 50 runes, but that's better than carrying around a load of real blood that you have no intention of using.
