Elden Ring continues his ascent to glory, as players continue (and restart) their journeys within the Interregnum to uncover the mysteries of the Ancestral Ring. With today's guide, we propose the locations and strategies to defeat all the bosses present in theAltus plateau and Leyndell, royal capital e Leyndell, the ashen capital. This is an area full of bosses, ravines to explore, and very challenging challenges, so prepare yourself for the best!
Before continuing to the plateau moors, we remind you that we have written several guides regarding Elden Ring, such as the guide to all the bosses, (not only those of the Altus and Leyndell plateau) the guide to trophies and platinum, that to all the side missions, and a series of other useful guides that you can find on the page dedicated to the game.
Are you ready to continue the path of the Senzaluce in the title of FromSoftware?
ATTENTION: we remind you that reading this guide to the bosses could make you run into unwelcome spoilers on the plot of Elden Ring, linked to the Altus Plateau, Leyndell and beyond, so we invite you to read only with this awareness in mind.
All the bosses of the Altus Plateau
Part of the plateau borders Mount Gelmir, however we have distinguished the two guides, so if you are looking for a specific boss that you will not find in this guide, we invite you to visit the other one as well, because perhaps you will find it there. On the other hand, the guide also includes Leyndell, so we tried to group all the bosses of the capital in one paragraph, later on. We remind you that the difficulty of some bosses could be perceived differently according to the level that you will have when you face it.
Mother Tree Burial Guardian (4) - Easy / Medium (at level 60 or higher)
It is located on the Altus Plateau, at the end of the dungeon in the Wyndham Catacombs, located near the homonymous ruins.
This is a very similar boss to the Tomb Guardians we've encountered throughout the game, however it does have a couple of features that could make it very uncomfortable to fight. Unlike the other areas you have encountered so far, the arena where you will face it is totally flooded ... and needless to say, the element that the cat will master is electricity. Then combine his "standard" attacks with those linked to energy balls thrown at a distance, electricity that propagates on the flooded ground, and you will have a clear picture of what awaits you.
Clearly if you get to the boss after passing level 100 you won't have any kind of problem, while if you venture into the dungeon at 60/70 you will need to be careful. This is a 1-on-1 battle and it could also be fun, so there is no strict need to use evocations or cheeses of any kind. Whatever your build, take on it as usual, but dodge and run away to avoid getting caught in the electricity.
If you defeat him, you will get the Globo cinereo della convallaria  e 12.000 rune.
Video of the fight at this link, a 1 hour, 29 minutes and 40 seconds.
Tibial Sailor (3) - Easy
It is located on theAltus plateau, and you can find it in the middle of plain / lake near the Wyndham Ruins.
This is not the usual Tibial Sailor, or rather, not entirely. Clearly the stats will be increased compared to the two you have already encountered, and he will take less damage when you hit him. Also, to annoy, in addition to the skeletons this time will make real evocations, which will last a few seconds but which are capable of really hurting. However, if you implement the usual tactics, you will move away when he prepares to make the attack from above (which instead maybe will kill some of his minions), you will bring home the fight without too much effort. Beware of the skeletons anyway. If faced with a level beyond 100, there will be no story, while with level 60/70 it will take a little patience (also based on the types of damage you will inflict).
If you defeat him, you will get a reward 14.000 anime, a Deadly Root and Evocations of Tibia.

Regina semiumana Gilika – Facile
You will find it on the Altus Plateau, in the Ruins of Lux. It is perhaps the simplest of the Elden Ring semi-human queens to defeat and the only one in this guide, given that by arriving on the Altus and Leyndell Plateau you will have probably already defeated a couple of them (for example if you have passed by Gelmir) and that you will be at a more than good level.
Once you reach the ruins (don't be fooled, you have to reach the part on the hill) you will find the usual ladders and go down. Go through the door and the fight will begin. Know that before engaging you, Gilika fara la solita animation to get up and roar, then you will have a few seconds free to attack it. It doesn't have much life, then avoid wasting time to summon ashes, load it with your head down and perhaps you may have already killed her by the time the fight is actually starting. Perhaps one of the simplest bossfights in the entire game.
If he has time to react, he will try to hit you hand-to-hand with his club, and will have some fairly fast movements (the arena is also small, so you may have little room for maneuver).
If you defeat it, you will get it 8500 rune, and in the chest in the room behind her you will find the Ritual sword talisman.
Video of the fight at this link, a 22 minutes and 40 seconds.
Sacriderm Apostle - Medium (at level 90 or higher)
You will find it on the Altus Plateau, in the highest part of Village of the mills.
It is an enemy with gods very varied attack patterns and with a challenging range to manage, although luckily being an outdoor arena we will be able to try to manage it better. It will attack you with a long curved blade, which will also spin if necessary, and also has magical attacks with which it can hit you from a distance. It does not end here, because when he has lost about half of his life, as if the distance reached by his blows were small, he will even begin to stretch his body and to make strange movements, so as to reach you in an instant.
If you own a magic or ranged build, try to keep you away and if you succeed, use an evocation. If, on the other hand, you are a melee player, you will absolutely have to study his attacks, trying to dodge and re-enter the openings he will grant you.
If you defeat him, you will get magic Black fatal flame, the weapon Scorticatore da Sacriderma e 14.000 rune.
Video of the fight at this link a 1 hour, 46 minutes and 25 seconds.
Perfumer Tricia and Aberrant Warrior - Medium (at level 70)
You will find them on the Altus Plateau, inside the dungeon of Repugnant catacombs (you will need, as with some other dungeons, a stone sword key).
This is a relatively readable bossfight given that we are dealing with two types of enemies already dealt with previously. The most direct advice is to kill the Perfumer first, although you may have to dance a bit to avoid the blows of the much more aggressive Aberrant Warrior. However, getting Tricia out of your way will almost break the fight, as she is a standard humanoid it will die with just over 5 or 6 hits, and you can focus on the Warrior like a normal other boss. The arena factor won't affect that much. If you call on the ashes of summoning, the fight will be even easier (recommended for wizards).
If you kill them, you will get the summoning ash di Tricia perfumed it e 9000 rune.

Black Knife Slayer (3) - Medium (level 85 or higher)
You will find him on the Altus plateau, he is one of the two bosses inside the Cave of the wise man.
Unlike the other murderers we've met, this will be much more treacherous: in fact it will be able to hide and become invisible, to then take a hold and take a large slice of life away. One of the ways we have for prevent its attacks, is hitting her as she approaches, trying to anticipate his moves, and also regulating with water on the ground, which may reveal its location to us. It is also an agile boss, able to easily dodge many of our attacks. Warning: as also happens with many normal mobs, once the grab animation has started it is really difficult to dodge or block it, so always try to anticipate the moves a little more than usual (also because, as we said, it can be lethal.
Summon one ash it can be very useful, even as a scapegoat when for example you will lose track of the assassin.
If you defeat it, you will get the talisman Covering veil e 9000 rune.
Video of the fight at this link a 2 hours, 31 minutes and 22 seconds.
Necromancer Garris - Easy / Medium (level 85 or higher)
You will find him on the Altus plateau, he is one of the two bosses inside the Cave of the wise man.
This boss is also as treacherous and annoying as the other one in the dungeon you are exploring, although you will be able to see him. This time it is a human necromancer, who will not give too many compliments and will immediately start charging you. In fact, this boss makes use of not only magic moves, such as summoning skulls that will chase you around the room, but also attacks body to body with his weapon (don't be fooled, it deals a fair amount of damage) and summons, such as skeletons.
Being an unarmored humanoid enemy, it will not be too resistant to physical attacks, and if you manage to close it immediately in a corner you will be able to do it a lot of damage already in the very first phase of the fight. To bully him properly, just summon ashes with multiple units, such as the classic wolves or knights.
If you defeat him, you will get the weapon Householders e 9000 rune.
Video of the fight at this link, a 2 hours, 37 minutes and 20 seconds.
Noble Blood - Medium (level 80 or higher)
You will find it on the Altus plateau, in the Risangue Ruins.
Don't be fooled by the humanoid appearance, because it could really hurt you. He looks a lot like the enemy you met in Liurnia Lacustre, in the church where you met Varré. This boss will attack you with one rapier, and is capable of doing some damage, in addition to inflict bleeding (and if you are a player who uses it, you know how lethal this can be in combat). It has a good one flow of attack, can use a couple of blood spells, and be careful to attack him with your head down, because it is also able to perform parries.
Try to play it on the defensive, but not too much, pay attention to when it will be in stance for the parry and avoid attacking it. If you want to play it quickly, summon an ash and the fight will be over soon, because the numerical superiority will suffer a lot, but always be careful of her attacks. The jump attack is also a good alternative to hurt him.
If you defeat it, you will get it 8800 rune, and in the chest in the room behind him you will find the weapon Bloody helix.
Video of the fight at this link, a 1 hour, 33 minutes and 59 seconds.
Stone Digger Troll - Easy / Medium (at level 80 or higher)
You will find it on the Altus Plateau, in theAncient gallery of Altus.
A boss you've already fought in Sepulcride early in the game, and certainly one of the first you've learned to read. Deal with it as you would face any giant foe you encounter, but beware of the arena's not overly permissive size, and its attacks that have a range definitely important (in addition to doing fairly badly). He's not too slow a boss, so always be prepared to dodge or parry (depending on your build and style). Remember that to the sound of heavy blows you can stun him and drop him for a critical hit.
If you defeat him, you will get the Colossal club e 9.600 rune.
Video of the fight at this link, a 2 hours, 9 minutes and 13 seconds.
Onyx Champion (2) - Easy / Medium (at level 90 or higher)
You will meet him on the Altus Plateau, in Sealed gallery. It is located in the moat before entering Leyndell. After this boss you can go further, and you will find the passage to one of the two towers of the Plateau.
This is basically the same enemy you faced in the Eternal Galley in Liurnia Lacustre (the one after the Cariano Manor). It will be relatively easy to defeat, especially since the attacks of him are fairly predictable and not too fast. Always pay attention to when the meteorites are about to hurl and run in circles to avoid them. Use the openings to hit him. You can also harm him from afar while a scapegoat will grab his attention from up close (summoning, perhaps a hoplite).
If you defeat it, you will get it Onyx Champion's Greatsword e 16.000 rune.
Video of the fight at this link, a 3 hours, 32 minutes and 20 seconds.
Omen Slayer (2) and Miranda the Wilted Blossom - Easy / Medium (at level 85 or higher)
It is located on the Altus Plateau, in a dungeon located next to the highest part of the main external stairway outside Leyndell's outer wall. The dungeon is there Cave of the Perfumer and its port è cover from a giant poisonous flower, which you will have to kill in order to enter.
These are two enemies that you have already had the opportunity to face in the past, individually. In any case, fighting at the same time will not be very difficult, given that Miranda will stay where she is, and that the arena is large enough to allow you to stay clear of the poison and dodge both shots at the same time (you'll need to be mobile enough to prevent the Omen Slayer from jumping on you). You can choose the strategy that suits you best and kill one before the other, it won't make much difference, even if getting rid of the armed enemy first will guarantee you more peace of mind and will make you feel less hunted down (his attacks hurt like hell).
If you defeat them, you will get theAx of the Omen Stripper e 8500 rune.
Video of the fight at this link, a 52 minutes and 40 seconds.
Lansseax, ancient dragon - Medium (at level 85 or higher)
You will find it on the Altus Plateau, right away at East on the map starting from the Church of the Echoes of the Tempest. This is the first dragon-type boss you will encounter in this Elden Ring guide dedicated to the Altus and Leyndell plateau.
It is not a flying dragon like Agheel or a stonecutter, but it still has wings, only they will be a less easy target to hit due to their shape and size. Focus on paws and belly, if you are melee fighters.
To face Lansseax we advise you as always to remain on horseback to have greater mobility and to quickly reach the boss in case he moves away or prepares attacks from above. His attacks result in electric claws very fast, e red lightning quite annoying, while if you stay too under him he can make a charged attack that he will throw you off the horse (in addition to harming you). Attention, there is no lack of swoop attacks and the fiery breath, so watch which attack is going to launch to be able to counter it better.
If you defeat him, you will get 72.000 rune andLansseax Glaive spell.
Video of the fight at this link, a 2 hours, 25 minutes and 25 seconds.
Black Knife Assassin (4) - Medium (at level 95)
You will find it at the door of the Tomb of the Blessed Hero, on the Altus Plateau.
This is the first boss of this type you will face outside, for this you may have better room to maneuver, but be careful because it can quickly cover a lot of ground and get close. It uses different types of moves, starting from the infamous grip that will stab you, pine to jump attacks, quick dodges, lunges, blades of red magic that hit you from a distance, and so on and so forth.
You can choose whether to fight a horse riding, but not too recommended, especially since it could throw you off with a couple of well-aimed blows. If you are doomed to attack body to body, wait for her to jump attack to dodge towards her and hit her, you'll have an opening. Always try to hit her with single hits, but know that she will quickly get away. The easiest way to hit her is to wait for her to engage her, dodge or parry, and then respond before she leaves. If you are gods Wizards choose your spells well, they must be fast and quick to cast, and used when the Assassin probably won't dodge (we recommend the faith spell Dazzling spear).
If you defeat it, you will get the Black Knife e 10.800 rune.
Video of the fight at this link, a 2 hours, 34 minutes and 20 seconds.
Antoco Hero of Zamor - Easy (at level 90 or higher)
You will find him on the Altus plateau, as the boss of the Tomb of the Blessed Hero.
This is a boss that you have already faced in Elden Ring on the peninsula of weeping, and that this time you will face again with the improved stats, the only one in the Altus and Leyndell plateau guide. It is a real one copy, and fighting him will not be a problem: you already know his movements, and this time you can also find help from summoning ashes.
Pay attention to the status assideration and the attacks that will do it to you find him in a flash. Get around it when it makes the magic attack that freezes the floor, and be ready to dodge when it starts spinning. The second part will be slightly more problematic, but the openings to hit it will always be the same.
If you defeat him, you will get the Ashes of the Ancient Dragon Knight Kristoff e 20.000 rune.
Video of the fight at this link, a 2 hours 51 minutes and 30 seconds.
Livface - Medium (level 90)
It is located on the Altus plateau, near theMinor Mother Tree (the one under the Village of the Mills). He is the only boss of this type in the Elden Ring guide, although the game puts us in front of several of these abominations, even in "small" format, of which the plateau in that area is littered (you will not find them at Leyndell).
It is a very tall monster, which is capable of inflicting the a mortal disease with its magic. You have to be very careful, because a well-placed blow is enough and in less than two seconds you will be infected (and dead), so you must necessarily be able to dodge them. Furthermore, if you are on average close, it will try to make a hold, even one with the ability to infect and kill you.
There are no particular tactics to fight him, except to kill all the minions in the area (at least 5 or 6), and groped to attack him from behind or from a distance. We point out that in addition to being faster, if you are on horseback the Facciadiverme will not be able to make the hold and it will fail, so you can take advantage of it. Beware of his attacks, they even come from a distance, and can throw you off the horse (even then, almost instant death because you could not escape the disease while you are stunned.
If you defeat him, you will get 10.000 rune, Spotted solid tear and Crimson liquid crystal tear.
Video of the fight at this link, a 1 hour, 59 minutes and 50 seconds.
Night Rider (7) - Easy
You will find it on the highway right in front of the big freight elevator at the beginning of the Altus Plateau. Like all other bosses of this type in Elden Ring, although the only one in the Altus and Leyndell plateau guide, you will only encounter him at night.
This is one of the usual Night Knights, and you've probably already had a callus on it. Your opponent will be armed with scourge, as also happened to the Peninsula of tears, and it will not be too complicated to defeat: the space to face it is ample, the stats of the enemy are not very high, since if you have arrived in this area you will already have a good level, and it does not present any particularities compared to the other knights. The only trick lies in the clean up the area from enemies that might bother you while you fight, such as the golem archer or some soldiers patrolling.
If you defeat him, you get the reward War ash: Shared order e 10.000 rune.
Video of the fight at this link, a 15 minutes and 15 seconds.
Godefroy the Grafted - Medium / Difficult (at level 90)
You will find it in the Eternal prison of the golden lineage on the Altus plateau. To unlock the entrance you will need one stone sword key. It deals with of the latest Elden Ring Eternal Galley, as well as the only prison boss present in the guide dedicated to the Altus and Leyndell Plateau. Try to start the fight with the ampoules to the maximum (which you will deafult if you die and start again from the Marika statue next to it).
This is an enemy who uses grafts, like Godrick. He will attack you with a large ax with attacks body to body, but also with magic of wind, which in addition to creating an area around him that harms you when you are close, will also see him throwing at you wind balls and debris, always in pair one after the other. Her combo I'm from medium speed, therefore discreetly readable and avoidable with the right timing. Despite this, it is not advisable to stay under him continuously, because he is able to inflict great damage, and is hardly stunned by repeated attacks. Also, when he is at a distance, he will perform somersaults to get close, which will be followed by either a ranged attack, or a devastating jumping ax. We therefore advise you to undertake one resistance battle, with little damage at a time as soon as you can, with melee or ranged magic attacks, perhaps even helping you with altered statuses such as poison.
If you defeat him, you will get the talisman Icon of Godfrey e 26.000 rune.
Video of the fight at this link, a 2 hours, 45 minutes and 30 seconds.
Crystallian (Spear) and Crystallian (Circular blade) - Easy / Medium (at level 90)
You will find it on the Altus Plateau, in Altus Gallery, which is located near the minor Mother Tree where there is Facciadiverme. This is the only boss with two Cristallians that you will find inside the guide of the plateau and Leyndell.
They are two simple Crystals, with no changes whatsoever to patterns or powers. You have already encountered both types of weapons in previous guides, so the only difference in combat is in the level of the enemies. Use blunt weapons as always to be able to break the defense as soon as possible, and use a summoning to establish parity or numerical superiority.
If you defeat them, you will get the Globo cinereo del minatore (funerary)  e 1800 rune.
Video of the fight at this link, a 2 hours 11 minutes and 18 seconds.
Meteorite Beast - Medium (Level 90)
You will find it on the Altus plateau, in a crater that you will meet skirting the cliff to the south of the region, getting to the bottom, almost up to the walls. It is one of the three meteorite beasts that you will find in Elden Ring, but the only one featured in this boss guide dedicated to the Altus and Leyndell plateau.
You have already encountered this beast as a boss in a Caelid dungeon, and it will feature the same moves, with the difference that you will have more room for maneuver and you can fight it a horse riding. It goes without saying that then, compared to the last fight, you will be more facilitated. Always pay attention to his charges and his gravity spells, try to be very elusive, and where you can attack him from a distance or close if he grants openings.
If you defeat it, you will get it as a reward 11.000 rune, 1 Funeral Forging Stone , 5 Forging stones , 10 Gravity stone fans e 10 Gravitational stone blocks.
Video of the fight at this link, a 44 minutes and 48 seconds.
Dueling Tomb Guard (2) - Easy (level 85)
You will find him as the boss of the dungeon Secondary tomb of Auriza on the Altus plateau near Leyndell to the east, a boss that you have already met almost at the beginning of the game and that is identical for this guide.
You already know the type of enemy, and he goes back to having the hammers with which we first encountered him in Sepulcride. Exactly the same strategies, and the same way to fight it. Only a greater power changes due to the more advanced zone, and clearly an increased amount of life. You shouldn't have big problems fighting it, but try to get there with an adequate level.
If you defeat him, you will get 15.000 rune and Mercenary Jar Ashes.
Video of the upcoming fight ...
Bird of Death (4) - Medium (at level 95 or higher)
You will find it on the Altus Plateau, in the small plateau next to theMinor Mother Tree inside the first walls of Leyndell. Like the other bosses of this type, also in the guide of Plateau and Leyndell, it appears only at night.
After a long absence, the "simple" bird returns, which does not make use of magical attacks or upgrades of any kind. The challenge will be to defeat him - with the same tactics as always - with the disturbance of the rolling animals that roam the arena, and with a space that is not very large after all. You are used to worse challenges, and you will probably be able to handle the fight quietly from a horse, trying to get rid of the rolling snails / skulls first to focus on the boss.
If you defeat it, you will get it 29.000 rune and Two-headed bird shield.
Video of the upcoming fight ...
Ashen Globe Hunter (3) - Hard (level 100 and up)
You will find it on the Altus plateau, in Hermit's hut. WARNING! Unlike the other bosses of his type who only appear at night, this Hunter in the plateau guide and Leyndell appears instead at Midday!
Aside from that difference, the combat modes are always the same, and he'll be an awkward customer as ever. Try to stall, don't get hit, and hurt him from a distance. Don't face it if you haven't reached an adequate level.
If you defeat him, you will receive 20.000 rune and Medicine walking globe.
Video of the upcoming fight ...
(TROPHY) Elmer del Rovo - Medium / Hard (at level 100 or more)
You will find this boss at the end of the area Castellombroso on the Altus Plateau, which you will reach by proceeding north from the giant freight elevator that took you to the Plateau.
If you want to make it easier to win, you need to have support from one summoning ash, because it is a boss who can defeat you in a few strokes: you know i Ashen orb hunters? Well, Elmer he is one of them, but not an invader. The worst part is that you will have to face him in a very small room (compared to the other areas where you fought with the Hunters), without a horse, and full of obstacles that can get in the way of the fight. His moves will be lethal, quick, but and you will be far below him, will use telekinesis less and he will try to hit you normally, so deal with him as if he were a Knight of the Crucible, studying the timing of his attacks and hitting him when he presents the openings.
If you defeat him, you will get the legendary sword Executioner sword of Marais, the shield Pavese of the bramble e 24.000 rune.
Tree Sentinel (2) and Tree Sentinel (3) - Hard (at level 90)
You will find them on the Altus Plateau, at the end of the staircase leading up to first city wall by Leyndell.
If you remember the boss you had to face in Sepolcride right after the tutorial, you will also remember how annoying this type of enemy is. Well, this time you will face two at the same time, and the drop will only be obtained when both have been defeated.
You start from the assumption that if you are not on horseback, it will be really difficult to evade the shots of 2 sentries (which will have two different weapons), so Torrente becomes indispensable (also because the space in which you will fight will be a bit tight). An evocation will come spontaneously and will be almost mandatory in order to legitimately face the sentries one at a time, and will also allow you to take advantage of some attacks from afar. If you're a wizard, go for fast-cast attacks, to deal immediate damage and dodge before they're caught. Poison and rot can be good gimmicks.
If you defeat them, you will get 20.000 rune, 1 Hero Rune  and the shield Oplon of the Mother Tree.
Video of the fight at this link, a 1 hour, 2 minutes and 10 seconds.
Crucible Knight (3) and Ordovis Crucible Knight - Hard / Very Hard (At level 100)
This is the boss that you will find at the bottom of the Tomb of the Hero of Sauriza, on the Altus plateau. This is one of the toughest bosses you'll find in this Elden Ring Altus Plateau guide before entering Leyndell.
What's worse than fighting a Knight of the Crucible? Fight two at the same time! There aren't too many tips to give, at least not unlike what we've given you for the other knights you've faced. First of all it is highly recommended to have on your own an evocation, to make sure that they also focus on you or split up.
An important strategy would be to make them both attract from the Reflected Tear summon (which despite succumbing sooner or later, is able to hold up more time against the two), and once they are focusing on her, inflict area attacks on both of them at the same time, to take away some life. If you use the breath that inflicts scarlet rot, you will have on your side an excellent ally to do damage over time. However, we advise you to then focus more on one of the two until he gets it out, and then equalize the numerical inferiority and fight as usual.
If you defeat them, you will get 28.000 rune and the full set of Ordovis: Ordovis broadsword, Crucible Ax Helm, Crucible Ax breastplate, Crucible Gauntlets, Crucible Greaves.
Video of the fight at this link a 4 hours, 32 minutes and 10 seconds.
Dragon Tree Sentinel - Medium (at level 95 or higher)
He is the only boss of this type in the Elden Ring and in this guide, and you will find him atLeyndell entrance, doing the tour of the plateau and entering from the side top right of the walls internal. Behind him, there is the door that will allow you to enter Leyndell.
Although it shares several characteristics with the "normal" Mother Tree Sentinels, this one possesses some attacks more dangerous and capable of doing more harm. However, there is one against him reduced mobility: it tends to move less and is slower, so you might use ranged attacks to your advantage. This is above all because with his blunt weapon he is able to make devastating attacks that can take a large chunk of life from you. Watch out for red lightning too! If you summon an ash it will be very easy to get rid of it, if you are at an adequate level.
If you defeat it, you will get it as a reward 50.000 rune and his weapons: Great dragon claw e Dragon claw shield.
Find the video of the fight at this link, a 3 hours, 18 minutes and 35 seconds.
All the bosses of Leyndell, Royal Capital and Ashen Capital
These bosses are always found on the Altus Plateau, but they can be tackled specifically within the walls of Leyndell, the royal capital and the ashen capital, and consequently we have dedicated a separate section of this Elden Ring guide to the 10 bosses that can be faced here. Many of these will also guarantee you a trophy.
(TROPHY & BOSS STORY) Godfrey, first ancestral Lord - Medium (at level 95)
You will meet him at Leyndell, Royal Capital, after climbing the tree roots (starting from the grace point after the giant dragon you "climbed" and following the road to the place of the boss fight. He is not an optional boss.
A lot about the difficulty of the boss depends on the level you will have when you face him. You can face him already around level 80 if you are stubborn, and still have won, as long as you pay close attention to his powerful attacks. If you face it when you've already passed 95/100, it will probably be one health walk, especially if you also approach evocations and aids of the case.
As you can imagine looking at it at first glance, it is a sort of spirit, and not in the "flesh and blood" form of Godfrey (which you can also find in Loretta, for example). The boss's attacks result in powerful ax hits, whether from the ground or from above, collapsing on you with impetus, but also stomp that create earthquakes capable of damaging you in the area (crucible knight style, but wider) . There is no stage 2. As players Wizards solita distance tactics, nothing unusual, as well as the players melee they will have to read his movements and dodge towards him to attack him during the many openings, as he is a boss quite readable, with not really fast attacks but they have variable speed and pace, so beware. You can take advantage of the shield parry if you have physical defense at 100.
If you defeat him, you will get a very useful one Talisman bag e 80.000 rune.
Video of the fight at this link, a 3 hours, 0 minutes and 20 seconds.
(TROPHY & BOSS STORY) Morgott, the Omen King - Medium / Hard (at level 95)
You will find it at Leyndell, royal capital, at the entrance to the Mother Tree. After defeating phantom Godfrey, continue to the grace point of the Queen's bedroom, and then continue to the combat arena. This is a boss that could give a lot of players a hard time, especially if faced with an inadequate level. If you remember the bossfight with Margit, you can find some similarities also with the Omen King. Before starting the fight, you can summon Melina to fight alongside you via the golden summoning sign.
It has a very varied range of attacks, which ranges from sword attacks (with a very wide range), hammer attacks of faith, ranged daggers, spear of faith and so on: in short, in addition to read his movements, you will have to act also very instinctive. In any case we are faced with a much more spacious arena compared to the one in which we faced Margit, and consequently we will be able to better manage our spaces, dodges and tactical escapes. In the second phase she will add arrows of different types to her quiver, adding more attacks to her squad, perhaps combining some of the already existing moves, and the arena will fill up with shallow water (which will not affect the fight much).
If you are fighters melee a good one might make you comfortable covering fire, or an ash that acts as an additional blade to do as much damage as possible right away. However, it will be important to stick to medium distance and attack only when possible, since many of the Morgott attacks are also fast, and the aforementioned variety it might even cause you to be taken by surprise. THE Wizards always keep the medium distance, however trying from time to time to attract his attacks and neutralize them, in order to keep their summon or Melina alive as long as possible.
Defeat it and you will get it 100.000 rune, Remembrance of the Omen King and Major Rune of Morgott.

Relentless Twins - Easy
You will meet them in Leyndell, the royal capital, sul bridge that takes you to the Divine Tower to the east.
You won't see them right away, and as you cross the bridge chasing an unsuspecting soldier, the sky and then thefull screen will become neri, and only you and your opponents will remain visible (a scene from Soulsiana memoria). It is about two Omens, similar to some you have encountered in some catacombs or around the game world. The peculiarity is that you will fight with the two at the same time, even if one will be a little more shy and will join you later. Take advantage of it clearly to do as much damage as possible to the former (that armed with an ax). The second, which will come to give him a hand, is armed with a great sword.
The fight is not too complicated, as the two omens take a fair amount of damage, and they will never actually be on you together: the one armed with a sword in fact it also owns magic attacks, and therefore will also entertain you to cast you against some spells. The only thing that could be a little confusing is the complete lack of reference points, given the darkness of the arena, and therefore you could lose the compass (especially when you do not understand where the enemy might attack from). With this problem solved, whatever your build is, you will have a fairly easy life.
Your reward will be the Ceneri di Rollo the Omen Slayer e 29.000 rune.

Esgar, blood priest - Easy / Medium
You will find it in Leyndell, the royal capital, in Underground of the outcasts.
It is a quite particular bossfight, which it doesn't seem too complex, but that could get you in trouble if you have a slow build. It is a humanoid boss who is accompanied by two dogs that inflict bleeding (like himself). Fast, dodge quickly and with some spells that can annoy you, as well as melee attacks touch and run.
First, kill the dogs, which you can get rid of with a couple of well-aimed headshots, to be able to deal only with him (it is advisable to have a shield and counterattack, for this phase). Once you switch to Esgar, pay close attention to his speed, and you may not have to be outdone. If you have a heavy sword, try to close it in a corner so as to limit his escape routes, and torture him with blows (he is humanoid, and has little balance and defense). With a medium / fast melee build, you will have to pay back with the same coin, or use throwing objects to make him stop for a few moments, reach him and hit him repeatedly.
With the magical build you can attack repeatedly as always, but try to exploit spells that do more damage, and with a quick cast (the boss is very elusive).
If you defeat him, you will get the talisman Jubilation of the Lord of Blood e 30.000 rune.

(TROPHY) Mohg, the Omen - Very Hard (Level 110 or higher)
You will find it in the sewers di Leyndell, royal capital. The road to get there is really long, so arm yourself with patience as soon as you enter the well to access the sewers onwards.
It is one of the toughest bosses to beat both of this specific guide for the Altus and Leyndell plateau, and of Elden Ring in general, and the worst thing is that you will meet it 2 times. This is because of not just one mammoth life bar, but also ofhigh strength to virtually any type of attack. The thing that in any case can - partially - make us breathe a sigh of relief, is that his pink of moves it's enough limited, but that doesn't mean it's less lethal.
Fight it with a strategy body to body it will certainly be hard work, as the large amount of life to take away will take a long time. Furthermore, it will be very important to learn the timing for dodging of his attacks, which often change and require that you roll at the last moment. Watch out for all of his attacks, and try to back away when he throws the red powder that ignites.
If you have a magical build, always try not to take damage, as you will have to balance the ampoules very much, dividing them between life and mana. In your case evocation of the Reflected Tear (or another tough one) will be very useful, since you will have to try to spam magic attacks on repeat without being riddled with shots by Mohg. The Comet of Azur tactic, if you have intelligence builds, can go into a combo with summoning.
Whichever build you use, be quick and dodge well, because his melee attacks they really hurt, therefore also consider staying at a medium distance often, as far as the arena can concede.
If you defeat him, you will get magic Blood flame claws e 100.000 rune.

(BOSS STORY) Sir Gideon Ofnir, the Omniscient - Medium / Hard (from level 110)
This boss will be available only after defeating Mailket. You will find it in Leyndell, the ashen capital, in the same spot where you faced the ghost of Godfrey, the first ancestral lord. This is one of the story-related guide bosses you'll find in the plateau and Leyndell, but the first without a trophy attached.
This is the one with whom you have often spoken at the Round Table, in the library. Don't be fooled by his rather quiet manner, because you are facing a very talented wizard, and that uses magic for practically every element and type. It goes without saying that this boss is much more vulnerable to melee attacks, having less physical resistance, but that it will be less easy to approach because it is elusive and with different spells ready to hit us and prevent us from getting close. Magic swords, black fire flames, blades of light, energy waves stonecutter and many other attacks of these types will truly be a thorn in your side. It does not end here, because it will also have some ampoules to heal your life, and leaving him alone too much means having to do some of the work all over again. The good thing is that he doesn't have a stage 2, which makes him less of a challenge than other bosses.
To defeat him you can adopt one distance tactics, if you are a wizard too, with spells capable of unbalance (and consequently not making him escape), for then hit it hard with other spells / sorceries. The faster they are, the better. Clearly a summoning of ashes will make things a lot easier for you, as it will often focus on them if you want to. keep a safe distance, and if they are leathery and resistant (such as hoplites, knights and the like) they can give repeated blows, which together with yours will give them very little time to recover and heal (but they could still continue to attack, be on guard and ready to dodge) .
If you are a hand-to-hand combatant you may have a slightly more complicated life due to its sudden escapes and practically infinite mana. Try to approach you while dodging his attacks and hitting him hard. Bleeding and DOTs could be a good way to do a lot of damage together and force him to cure, or cause it over time. Jump attacks and heavy attacks, if successful, can be useful in slowing and unbalancing him, exposing him to critical attacks. We recommend some light armor, but protect you from various types of magic. Clearly, in this case too, summons are your friends.
If you defeat him, you will get 150.000 rune, the Scepter of the Omniscient,Helm of omniscience, Armor of omniscience, the Gauntlets of omniscience and Greaves of omniscience.

(BOSS STORY and TROPHY) Godfrey, 2st Ancestral Lord (110) and Hoarah Loux, Warrior - Hard (at level XNUMX or higher)
You will meet them in Leyndell, the ashen capital, in piazza dell'Albero Madre, after defeating Sir Gideon Ofnir, this is the second boss of the story in this guide to the Altus plateau that will be unlocked after defeating Mailket.
It is a two-phase boss (and not a double, as the name might seem). The first phase will see us face Godfrey as we have known him before, only in flesh and blood… and then much stronger in the attacks, and with a life bar much more abundant. Apart from an explosion of spikes that will expand 360 °, there are no particular differences from the first fight you did against him, except that you will be asked for a more attention in not letting you hit and in learning his attacks to dodge / parry them at best.
Things get complicated with phase 2, in which shortly after taking half of his life, the boss will start fighting as Hoarah Loux, warrior. Once he is in this form, he will fight hand-to-hand, give much more direct melee, quicker, and grapple and lanci in stile wrestling. Be very careful, as some builds may suffer a lot from this type of attack, and it could kill you even with a single blow. He will often jump, make movements similar to those of beasts, and perform powerful ones area attacks, loaded and unloaded.
Fighting it hand-to-hand could be problematic, because if you are alone he will give you no respite, and to dodge his constant attacks you will have to carefully read his movements (which are unusual compared to all the other bosses you have encountered). Jump if he's creating shockwaves, measure stamina and dodge, otherwise you won't have any to attack during the few openings he will grant you. With an Ash Summon (Reflected Tear Over All) it will be easier not to be targeted, but be aware that sooner or later it will likely take enough damage to succumb, leaving you on your own again. If you can, use bleeding weapons.
With the build magica you will have slightly easier life to attack, but you must always be very careful not to get killed by his attacks, dodging well. Summoning will be even more useful for you because you can spam spells to no end (remember to distribute the ampoules before the fight), and never like in this case we recommend quick cast spells.
If you defeat him, you will get the reward Remembrance of Hoarah Loux e 300.000 rune.

(BOSS STORY) Radagon of the Golden Order and Ancestral Beast - Hard / Very Hard (at level 120)
You will find it at Leyndell, the ashen capital, after defeating Hoarah Loux. In this case it is due boss that you will have to face one after the other. This is the final boss not only of the guide of the plateau and of Leyndell, but of Elden Ring,
You will start with Radagon, with humanoid features, but slightly larger. From him he has very powerful attacks, thanks to his ancestral power. She will jump up and swoop down on you with hers martello, not only doing blunt damage, but also creating an area of effect around itself, it also possesses magic attacks, will deceive you with gods teleports, will cast magic at you lightning style and so on. Whatever build you use, it is very important to be able to alternate timed dodging and parrying, especially since it will often continue to attack you. If you have a build with attacks body to body, pay close attention to create openings in it by dodging towards him, perhaps after it has finished certain attacks. With a build magica you can avoid risking against him, but even more so, by attacking from a distance, you will have to be very precise in parrying and dodging his attacks from a distance. While it's not exactly easy, it shouldn't take long to learn his moves and fight him, but it's when you defeat him that the real challenge will begin.
After Radagon in fact, here is in front of you Ancestral beast, a boss con a abnormal amount of life it's a very high strength. It is a creature definitely big (but not huge), so be careful when trying to lock the camera on her, as you may lose perspective. She will attack you with the magic in several ways, with light who will take one much of the arena in its area, or attacks direct at a distance, but also with yours huge sword, with which it has a very high range. Be careful when he jumps into the yard, because his dive attack it's devastating. Roll to dodge it. It also has taken, so always keep an eye on what he's preparing for you. When will it reach half life, will also add a comet of light (with other small ones to accompany it) to its list of attacks they will chase you in search, so run as much as possible to avoid getting hit. Be careful, because to a certain one it will be able evoke ancestral rings, which you will have to dodge by jumping or rolling.
If you have a build body to body, know that in some cases (especially in the first phase) if you can get around it, you can take a few seconds to make some attacks from behind while she is busy with some of her spells, so try to close the distance with her in as little time as possible, and be it always ready to dodge. In general, this is a boss that has many different attacks, and you will have to behave situationally, so a lot will also depend on your skills in fighting. If you are gods wizards, try to keep at medium distance to keep the beast within your reach, but you will be very subject to its attacks, so always try to alternate attacks and craps / parries. The Reflected Tear could help you out, so try to save ampoules and evocation for the beast, as you will need it.
If you defeat them, you will get the Ancestral Remembrance e 500.000 rune.
