Want to know how you can get Scarlet Rot resistance in Elden Ring?
One of the deadliest and latest status effects in Elden Ring is Scarlet Rot. Considering how frequent this new effect shows up in The Lands Between, you’d want to make sure that you have some resistance to it on the go.
Without any form of protection from Scarlet Rot, your health bar will quickly melt away and force you to consume every last bit of Crimson Tears you have around.
Scarlet Rot in Elden Ring acts similarly to the poison status effect, but it does way more damage per tick. This makes this status effect far more dangerous, but like any other Soulsborne game, there are counters available for the red-rot.
With the new crafting system in place, players will have far more options to battle Scarlet Rot as they explore the open world.
