How to Cheese Fire Giant After Patch in Elden Ring

Previously, the way you could easily cheese your way through this fight was by luring the Fire Giant on a cliff and getting him to fall off of it, twice (to deal with both of his phases). This new method is similar to the old one, though it is a bit more involved and will take more time. As before, once the fight starts, lead the Fire Giant to the same cliff. Summon Torrent, and use it to jump to the other side. The Fire Giant will approach the cliff, but unlike his pre-patch behavior, he will not fall down to his death.

Your strategy now is to pelt him with projectiles from afar. You can either summon some Spirit Ashes with a ranged attack (such as Latenna the Albinauric), or do it yourself if you are a magic user. This can take a while, so be patient. Also, just be careful not to let his fireballs hit you, as they can do tons of damage. Once he enters his second phase, the game will teleport you back to the starting point. Lure him to the cliff again and repeat the process until you have killed him.

Very early in your exploration of Elden Ring world you will find out that you need to prepare your character for different tasks. You'll need to learn how to use Ashes of War, how to two-hand weapons, or use magic spells during the course of your adventures. Many secrets are also waiting for you, such as, a hostile NPC Sellen that doesn't let you see her shop, an invisible man in a bush, or a huge turtle with a bell that lets you duplicate some very important items.
