How to defeat Morgott, The Omen King in Elden Ring

One of the must-have boss fights, Morgott the Omen King is so much more than he first appeared. During the cutscene, he appears to be trying to descend some stairs, but as soon as he enters the arena, he launches the stone projectile that binds his sword and jumps at an alarming speed towards you. Morgott is fast, hits hard, and has a number of sporadic attacks that can send players off the field. If you’re having a hard time, here’s how to beat Shardbearer Morgott.


If you don’t mind playing online, summon two allies to help you in this fight. You can summon Melina, Maiden, at the top of the stairs near the boss gate – and unlike many NPC summons, she’s very useful in this fight. She can use ranged divine attacks and dodge well enough to survive Morgott’s onslaught.

If you want to try Morgott solo, we recommend a bulky Ash ally – Ancestral Ashes or Kaidan Sword Ashes are both fairly easy to obtain and durable enough to invest in. Kaidan in particular will deal massive amounts of damage, but Ancestor Spirit can be swapped into a bow if the boss runs away. If neither of those are present, the Wolves trying can do some damage, but don’t expect them to stay on the field for long.

One last bit of preparation: at this point you should have a +15 weapon of some sort that benefits from whatever your highest damage stat is – and that stat should be 35 or higher. You must be at least level 65 for this fight – it can be cleared at lower levels, but it’s good that you won’t have enough raw stats to take more than one hit before needing to heal.

Morgott has two phases. The first stage is pretty simple – he’ll jump around the arena and dash past you with his sword, while occasionally summoning divine weapons like short swords or hammers (much like the battle with Godrick.) He can also hurl a trio of divine daggers at you if you’re far enough away, as well as conjure a giant divine spear. All of his attacks during this phase have enough wind power, so dodge to him or to the side to avoid damage.

Remember that Morgott’s sword has a very deceptive hit – even if it looks like you’re far enough away or you think he can’t hit you with his slash, it can still tag you if you are not careful . It’s best to attack once or twice before retreating or raising your shield – you’ll never have enough time between his attack patterns to take out more than two or three hits.

One of his deadliest attacks is when he will drop his spear on the ground around him. At first it is in a wide area around him, but after the first wave it will disappear into a cross pattern around him. These diagonal spears will continue to drop for a few seconds and can confuse you before another Morgott attack, so make sure you don’t accidentally roll into a spear.

Phase two starts around 55% health – he’ll spin in pain, allowing you to take two or three hits – before spewing toxic geysers around him. These geysers will appear periodically throughout the battle, and they do a lot of damage. Worse yet, they’ll frustrate you if your stance isn’t high enough, leaving you vulnerable to another Morgott attack. Periodically, he will repeat the AoE geyser attack, so when you see him curled up, move away.

The main thing to remember is that this fight, like many high-speed boss battles, relies on memorization and attack patterns. You’ll probably die a lot, but keep practicing your dodge timing and learn to hit once or twice before you break out – Morgott will soon fall, granting you 60,000 Giant Runes as well as Morgott’s Great Runes .
