If you like boss fights in Elden Ring, the evocative video game developed by FromSoftware, you will have bread for your teeth as you will meet several of them, and in this guide we will tell you about all the bosses encountered so far in the area of Sepolcride, but above all we will show you the best tactics to defeat them.
Elden Ring bosses use different tactics, they hit as hard as they can, they promptly repel your shots, they throw everything at you and above all they will give you a lot of blows, so it will be essential to use the best strategies to be able to break them down by bringing home the skin. Generally spells help a lot because they effectively hit the target while keeping you at a safe distance, but if you want to get them out of the way in the shortest possible time you will have to face the melee and stock up on potions.
ATTENTION: We remind you that this guide dedicated to the Elden Ring bosses contains spoilers, continue at your own risk.
Before continuing, thanks to Powerpyx, the portal that has also provided the public with the videos of the bossfights, in order to also give visual clues to the players.
What are the bosses in Elden Ring in Sepulcride? Here is the guide
In the guide that follows, we will go to find out all Bosses present in the vast area of Sepolcride (includes Sepolcride is e West Sepulchrid, including the Grantempesta Castle), and we will show you where you can find them. Since Elden Ring is a widely open world game, and you can choose where to go right away, there is no fixed progression, and consequently we will propose them to you. based on areas that more or less you will meet before and after, leaving you i boss of the story as a final course.
Chapel of the Waiting
Grafted Heir - Very Hard (Easy when you come back)
Small bonus in the guide concerns the first boss of Elden Ring, the one we will face as soon as we wake up, apparently impossible to beat on this occasion. This boss is that of the tutorial in the prologue it means that you will have a very low level and you will not have any potions with you. The ideal would be to hit him with the arrows keeping you at a distance and then run forward and make him send his blank shot, then turn around, hit and run away.
It is a really difficult boss to kill during the tutorial, but you can face it much later, (recommended level at least 60) by going from one of the three portals dei Quattro Campanili in the Liurnia Lacustre area.
Video of the boss fight at this link, a 3 0re, 9 minutes and 30 seconds.
Tree Sentinel - Difficult
It is located in Sepolcride, on the patrol between The First Pass and the Church of Elleh. It is a knight who deflects magic with the shield, and to confront him it would be preferable to have the level at least at 35, and since he is on horseback, you too should use the horse to counter it as best as possible (here is our guide to where to find it), approaching it to attack it and running away. You can use the surrounding terrain to have some of his attacks blocked, and free areas to run and not get stuck. If you decide to use the magic instead, don't abuse it, otherwise it will repel it with the shield and send it back to you.
The rewards for the victory will be his halberd e 3200 rune.
Farum Azula's Human Beast - Very easy
It is located in Sepolcride, in the small dungeon of the Latibosco cave. This boss executes the sword attacks with simple ones, and one of chained blows: wait for the combo to finish (avoiding it) to hit him. Repeat several times for an effortless victory.
The reward consists of Fire Dragon Talisman (gives you resistance to fire damage) e 700 rune.
Sepulchral Guardian of the Mother Tree - Easy
It is located in Sepolcride, in the Catacombs of Passo Tempesta. This boss will use an attack from above and at that moment you can only run back, but wait for the attack to finish to hit him as much as you can. For this boss it is also preferable to use magic, which will keep you at a distance. Pay close attention to the fire attacks, which will follow you even if you turn in circles, however if you are at a safe distance and have a bow, you can use this moment to attack with arrows (or always magic).
The rewards will be the Ashes of the noble sorcerer e 1200 rune.
Semi-human Head - Medium
It is located in Sepolcride, in the Coastal cave. This boss is protected by his henchmen, and they won't be few. The fight will see you both wiping out the little ones and fighting two semi-human leaders. Area-hitting spells might be a good way to clean up while at a distance. Pay attention to their attacks, especially the heavy blow, after which you can take the opportunity to attack melee and take away a fair amount of health from the enemy on duty. At the entrance to the boss area it will also be possible to summon a helper if you find yourself in trouble.
The reward for you is the Tailoring tools,Sewing needle e 675 rune.
Crazy Pumpkin Head - Very Easy
It is located in Sepolcride, in the Crumbling Cell of the Rest point in ruins. This boss is not too dangerous. You will easily beat him if you dodge his attacks by jumping backwards and even when he does his combo he will be easily controllable. He doesn't have a great attack range, you can also stay at medium range. Remember that the head is armored, it would be better to hit it on the rest of the body to do more damage.
As a reward you will unlock the Merchant of Sorcery of the ruined rest point (just behind the door) e 800 rune.
Troll Scavapietra – Facile
It is located in Sepolcride, in the Tombs Galleries. Enter the cave up to the elevator which will take you to another cave with another elevator to go straight in front of the boss. The space around you is small and dodging him is not easy, and he hits hard, however his attacks are slow and he has low health. Watch out for his attack range. If you can get close enough and take the right time, you can do some loaded attacks on the legs: it will take two to make it fall to the ground, so you can also make a critical attack on the head. You can repeat the operation several times to kill him.
The reward for the effort will be the Roaring Medallion, accompanied by 1800 rune.
Night Rider - Easy
It is located in Sepolcride, Proceed along the cobbled street from the telescope of Sepolcride up to the bridge and you will find the first night knight there. (ATTENTION, appears only at NIGHT, speed up time from a grace point before going there). It is a knight not too difficult to defeat in this case, but annoying like all bosses on horseback. You will meet Night Knights multiple times during your adventure, and each time in one different place, with a different weapon.
This night rider carries one with him long halberd, but if you've been training against the Tree Sentinel, this boss will be very simple. If you fight on horseback you could try to deal with him like in a carousel, trying to hit him and then moving away quickly. If you want to keep your distance, hitting him with magic won't be too complicated, but killing him with melee weapons could be more hasty. Despite being mounted, we might advise melee players to fight on the ground, especially if you have a shield that blocks 100% of physical attacks. His attacks are fairly predictable, and the jump attack easily avoidable. Self you will kill his horse first, he will fall to the ground, and you can perform a critical attack, executing him.
Your reward will be there War Ash: Repeated Lunge and runes.
For the video of the fight, go to this link, a zero ore, 16 minutes e 16 seconds.
Light rider Darriwil – Medio
It is located in Sepolcride in the Galera eterna del limiere alacre.
Dodge his combos and hit repeatedly. This is a fairly quick enemy, avoid spells that require a long cast. Wait for his combos to finish to have a decent window to attack. If you face him after reaching level 35, the damage you will inflict on him will be good.
The reward is the weapon Zanna of the limiere e 1400 rune.
Crucible Knight - Difficult
It is located in Sepolcride, in the Eternal galley of Colle Tempesta. This boss is a human knight, and you have to be very careful, especially if you will face him during the first hours of the game (we recommend that you face him when you are beyond the thirtieth level, and with at least 7 ampoules available). This is probably the most difficult Elden Ring boss in Sepulcride that we will find in the guide.
This will repel all your shield hits, and for this reason using long-cast spells is not a winning strategy. The best solution is close the spaces, watch out for his attacks, and dodge (if you try to parry them you will lose a lot of stamina). Some combos are longer than others, so be careful. Whenever he finishes a series of attacks, you will have a window to hit him.
Attention, because when you take a little less than half of its life, it will start there second stage, which will also add an ethereal tail strike and a swooping strike with ethereal wings to his attacks. These too must be avoided. When it is less than a third of life, these ether attacks will also be more powerful, and the tail will go a long way. Keep your distance more at this stage. If you fight hand-to-hand, try to beat him one hit at a time and always be ready to dodge. From the second stage on, almost every sword stroke of his is followed by a flick of the tail, so be prepared to dodge twice and then hit him.
The reward for the effort, however, is related to the effort: you will receive the Crucible Shape: Tail e 1800 rune.
Bird of Death - Easy
It is located in Sepolcride, and you can reach it from the Hut of the warrior master, proceeding towards the great rovina ad east/southeast from there, near where the "patrol" giants are (ATTENTION, Compare only at NIGHT, speed up time from a grace point before you go there). This is the second night boss we meet in the Elden Ring guide.
Its appearance is that of a large bird with a stick, with fairly slow movements. It only makes melee attacks, so a good tactic can be exploit the horse, in combo with remote spells. Beware of jumping attacks that can reduce the distance and hit you by surprise. If you are not riding Torrente, arm yourself with a good shield with maximum physical resistance, block the attacks and hit it hard. In short, a boss who won't give you too many problems.
Reward for you the talisman Branch sword with a blue feather.
Patches – Facile
It is located in Sepolcride, in the Aquafosca cave. After completing the dungeon (if you have triggered the sound traps and lost life or ampoules, we recommend that you finish the exploration and then return to the Grace and recharge the area), you will find yourself facing the fog of the boss. When you go through it, go to the chest and open it, and Patches will appear. The return of this old acquaintance tastes quite sweet, as it is one of the easiest bosses to defeat in the game.
As usual, infamous shield and attacks, but nothing irresistible. When you reduce his life to less than half, which you will do very easily, he will give up right away… as always. After he surrenders you can talk to him and decide to forgive him, or not. Be clementi and you will see him apologize and declare that he will open a shop later.
Reward obtained, Golden man  X2, the gesture He begs for mercy e 400 rune.
Dueling Tomb Guard - Easy
It is located in Sepolcride, in the Catacombs of Acquafosca. In this fight you may need a summon to help, such as lone wolves (here is the guide to summons and how to unlock them).
While the weapon is visually effective, it does not actually cause excessive damage, as it is short-range and easily dodged. Watch out for his attacks, especially once he activates Rage Mode and deals more damage. Stick it with spells and sorceries taking the right time could be a good strategy, especially in combo with invocations.
The reward consists of War hammer e 1600 rune. With Patch 1.03 it seems to get the Ashes of Engvall, Knight in exile.
Flying Dragon Agheel - Medium
It is located in Sepolcride, in the center of the Agheel lake, just above Ruins incinerated by the dragon. The enemy will not be immediately visible, it will spawn when you get close to his area.
To have an easy life, it would be preferable to face it when you are at least level 50 and you have 8 potions available, but if you will exploit the horse, you will have a little patience and you will be attentive to his attacks, you will be able to get away with it even in the early stages of the game. It is not recommended to hit the head because he will bite you, and if he breathes fire he could kill you with a single blow. You can hit the head with good results if you use magic instead. The best tactic, if you face it first, is be very mobile on horseback, go under him when he takes off to avoid attacks from above or flames, and then attack him melee on the wings or from behind. Make a lot of use of the phase where he breathes fire while he is on the ground to go around and hit him from the back with free attacks. (Here is the guide to unlocking the horse).
The reward you will get is a Dragon heart and well 5000 rune.
Tibial sailor - Very easy
It is located in Sepolcride, in Hydrocanto village. One of the simplest boxwoods in the game, especially if you explore East Sepulchrid after leveling up quite a bit in the opening bars. It is about a sailor who sails in the shallow water of the village, summoning skeletons and teleporting himself to the various areas of the map. However, his movements are very slow, as are the summons (almost to be able to ignore the skeletons). The only attack that could possibly bother you is when he creates a column of water for and is elevated, then trying to crush you. In any case, he has a low defense, if you attack him melee you will inflict considerable damage, even ignoring the skeletons that can even be hit by the sailor himself. If you take advantage of invocations and horse, you will have unparalleled advantages. A health walk.
Your reward will be there Deadly root, accompanied by Ashes of skeletal soldiers e 2400 rune.
Guardian Golem - Very Easy
It is located in Sepolcride, in the Highway cave. The most inconvenient part will be reaching the boss, who will be in a cave hidden behind the waterfall in the deepest part of the dungeon (on the water, on the pond). The boss is a stone guardian like some you have probably faced in the game, either in the plateau plain just above the dungeon, or on the bridge leading to the Divine Tower of Sepulcris.
If you are fast, you can finish the fight in 6 shots: as soon as you pass the golden mist, run to the giant, still lying down and about to get up. Hit him with a charged attack on one foot, and then the same thing on the other (even if he has not finished getting up): the Golem will be stunned and will fall to the side, exposing the live part on the chest to make a critical attack, which if done will take about half of his life (if you are around level 35). While he is about to get up repeat the action, and he will die without even getting your cloak dirty.
If you are a wizard the situation is slightly more complicated, as you may have to keep your distance, and some Golem attacks are long range. Spam short, persistent attacks from a distance on his legs to make him collapse as soon as possible, and get help from invocations.
Kill him and you will get theAmulet of the blue dancer e 1600 rune.
Killer of Black Knives - Very Easy
It is located in Sepolcride, in the Deadly catacombs.
This boss already starts with a little less life, which will make the battle very easy. If you are wizards, take advantage of the invocation of the wolves and spam magic from a distance, although he will be able to dodge a few hits.
For the more daring who will attack melee, it will be enough to be quick in dodging the attacks, and in case you are able to carry out attacks from behind. With a good dose of parries, counterattacks, and the same old dodges, you won't have too much trouble defeating her, also because she has a small amount of health).
Once defeated, you will get the amulet Crimson dagger of the assassin e 1600 rune.
Ashen Globe Hunter - Medium / Hard
It is located in Sepolcride, and it spawns within the Hut of the warrior master (ATTENTION, appears only at NIGHT, speed up time from a grace point, talk to Bernahl in the hut, then travel to another point on the map, and return to the hut again). This is the third night boss we meet in the Elden ring guide. This is not a boss to be taken lightly, and it is exaggeratedly complicated to take down in the early game, so it is recommended to return later, perhaps once you have reached the level 45 or higher.
If you have witchcraft at your disposal, you could take advantage of it a lot distance and the horse, since medium and long range attacks with the telepathic sword they are devastating, and you will need to evade them. Be careful when he will call the sword to him, even then he can inflict damage on you. If you are devoted almost exclusively to melee, you may even need a dozen additional levels.
We report that if you die, trying to fight it again requires the same procedure to make it spawn again, so this is a bit tedious, try to go there when you are already prepared enough.
The reward for this complicated boss is the Walking globe of bones e 2700 rune.
(BOSS HISTORY and TROPHY) Margit, the Relentless Omen - Medium / Hard
It is located in Sepolcride, and enter its area from Gallery for the Castle. This is in order of the first boss in the story you will encounter. The first boss in Elden Ring history to appear in the guide. We recommend facing it from level 25 up.
This boss turns out to be a real one "Entry test" for the players, as it can attack you in many different ways, both at range and close combat. Taking a few tries to learn his attack patterns might be wise, as well as taking advantage of dodges at the right time (and coming close to him) to take advantage of melee attacks, no more than a couple, because then he will react. If you are at a distance, after a few seconds it will probably launch i daggers of light (dodge them) or vi will jump against (you can use the dodge to go towards him and hit him again, since he will take a couple of seconds to get up).
The attacks with martello in the second phase (which unlocks as soon as he has lost almost half his life), they can do a lot of damage, so on this occasion it might be wise to keep your distance and try some magic attacks. Also take advantage of summons, such as lone wolves or soldiers, which can offer balance between ranged and melee attacks.
If you are a wizard, it may also be useful to summon the Sorcerer, perhaps to a point near a wall, so that Margit focuses on him by providing you with free ranged attacks.
IMPORTANT: you can make life easier for a few moments if you will purchase a specific item da Patches, after he opens his shop (at first, always in the cave where you defeated him): this it will create a magic that will chain Margit to the ground, allowing you to hit it while it lasts.
The reward consists of one Talisman Bag (which will allow you to equip an additional one) e 6000 rune.
(BOSS HISTORY and TROPHY) Godrick the Grafted - Difficult
It is located in the Grantempesta Castle of Sepolcride, and you will access it from Isolated cell. The second boss in the Elden Ring story that appears in the guide. We recommend facing it from level 30/35 up if you don't want to be particularly in trouble.
Godrick is a boss that consists of two phases, interspersed with a cutscene. It has an enormous amount of life, so you will need to be very careful in dosing your reserves of healing ampoules. Whether you have a build devoted to melee, or magic, the advice is to summon the NPC at the entrance to the boss area to help you in the fight (Nepheli Loux, Guerriera, if you have talked to us before).
In the first phase his attacks will consist of more of melee attacks and various turnsVery veloci and quite lethal, and having a scapegoat could be a good advantage (again, invocations can save your skin). The main purpose will be to try to attack it from behind, so as to inflict greater damage. So try to dodge often and attack those few situations in which it will be quiet. If you are in a sorcery build, you may have an easier time if you leave the boss at the mercy of the helpers and dedicate yourself to magic attacks from a distance (in this case, you may need to distribute the ampoules so that you have enough for mana ).
The second phase could be tricky, as the dragon head will also add fire to its attacks, but it will allow you (especially if the NPC is still alive) to have more time and more openings to hit melee than the first phase. If you have any invocations or items capable of inflicting it decay status, you can also decide to manage the combat from a distance without risking too much, and wait for the DOT to do its part.
The reward will be there Godrick's major rune, Remembrance of the Grafted One e 11250 rune.
These are all the bosses of Sepulchrid in Elden Ring, but if more come up, we'll add them to the guide. In the meantime, our guide to all the trophies and platinum of Elden Ring may be useful, where there are also all the other guides dedicated to the game that can be useful, including the complete guide to all the other bosses. Also for all the information on the game in real time, here is the page dedicated to Elden Ring.
Ulcerated Tree Spirit - easy (at least Level 60)
You will find it in Sepolcride, in Tomb of the hero of the acrites. Go to the grace of Abandoned cemetery (exactly in the catacombs where you started the game, after the tutorial), used two keys of the stone swords, and open the dungeon. This is an atypical dungeon, where you will have to escape from a metal chariot that takes all the width of the corridor, and which will kill you if it touches you. Solve the puzzle by running and zigzagging, but beware of the enemies. In front of the boss statue you will find a statue of Marika.
The boss is a giant, infected, tree lizard that moves around a lot and deals heavy attacks. However, he won't harm you with every hit, and spends a lot of time squirming. The room is not very large, so it is better to finish the fight quickly so as not to get stuck.
If you have a melee build, hit him often, try to roll and avoid the parry (and summon some ashes you will have good help). With a magical build it gets complicated, but if you are good at rolling, you can win the drag race. Fire is a good friend.
If you kill it, you will get it 15000 rune, for an Seme d'oro and Ashes of Oleg, exiled knight.
