Be careful to pick up any items left during Elden Ring PvP; Hackers seem to be back to their old tricks of handing out unobtainable items in an attempt to get your account banned from the RPG. This isn’t an entirely new trend: FromSoftware’s previous games, including the Dark Souls series, have seen pirates drop broken items or try to force them into players’ inventories. These can often trigger cheat detection software, leading to your account being flagged and being banned from playing multiplayer games online.
Elden Ring players report that a similar trend is currently occurring in open world gameplay, with Brave’s Cord Circlet being one example.

If you choose things, with help, several players in the thread offer some alternative fashion options to give you a similar look to the item shown.
