The Lands Between are home to a variety of creatures, some friendly but most hostile. Here’s where you can find Elden Ring’s Night’s Cavalry boss enemies and the reward for slaying each!

Roaming the dimly lit plains of the Lands Between, the Night’s Cavalry patrol in search of any Tarnished who may cross their path.

Their appearance is, like other Elden Ring enemies, greatly inspired by The Lord of the Rings. These dark horsemen bare a striking resemblance to the Nazgul from Peter Jackson’s film series.

As their name suggests, these bosses only come out in the dead of night. However, due to the glow of the Great Erdtree, it can sometimes be hard to tell when they’ll be around. Use one of the many Sites of Grace to wait until the sun goes down.

Here’s where you can find all Night’s Cavalry riders and what you can loot from them once you have them beat!

Consider combining this guide with our story progress walkthrough if you’re looking to take the recommended path from Fallen Tarnished to Elden Lord!
