We’ve Got Bad News About Elden Ring’s Pot Friends
Warning: This article contains minor spoilers for Elden Ring.
Leading up to the launch of Elden Ring, there was one breakthrough character that the community embraced: Pot Boy. This sentient pottery, later named Bandai Namco Pot Friend, won the hearts of thousands of people.
But we have bad news about marijuana. They are definitely not all friends.
The most famous of the pot-boys is Alexander. This is someone you may have seen in game clips that are stuck in the ground and need help. Don’t worry about this big guy; he is a friend and will even tell you about an important place.
But not every one of his relatives is so friendly. Within the walls of some Elden Ring dungeons, you’ll find both small and large versions of these weed boys. Officially known as “Living Jugs”, the larger versions can be particularly aggressive and use various rolling and slam attacks to destroy your health bar. In these cases, your only options are to either run away or, more likely, smash that ceramic surface so that the red liquid inside the jar can splatter all over the floor and walls.
We’re sorry to bring you bad news.
