An Elden Ring player notices an incredible detail hidden in one of the portraits hanging in the debate parlor of the sorcerer academy of Raya Lucaria and immediately reports it to the group. FromSoftware’s environmental storytelling has consistently been a major strength, and the company’s most recent release, Elden Ring, is no exception to this trend. As players continue to delve deeper into the game’s more intricate details, one player has discovered a secret in the boss room for the Red Wolf of Radagon in Raya Lucaria, which they have shared with the rest of the community.
