Attacks Patterns

  • This boss has plenty of Blood Flame and Blood Claw abilities, so you need to make sure you dodge those as Blood Loss can accumulate fast and cause massive damage!
  • Make sure to take some Stanching Boluses to alleviate the Blood Loss in case you are hit. Here is how you can find the Nomadic Warrior’s Cookbook [7] to get this crafting recipe on Elden Ring.
  • Mohg’s attacks are a little slow. He will start an attack movement, but the real hit comes in later due to its slow animations. Taking this into account, once an attack animation starts, do not immediately roll! Take just a fraction of a moment, anticipate the attack, and then roll.
  • Mohg raises his hand to reach a portal; this indicates an upcoming Blood Flame rain attack. Whenever this happens, get some distance and prepare to dodge in case he throws Blood Flame at you.
  • Keep an eye on Mohg’s right-hand movement, as it will indicate attacks with his trident. The trident is not what you want to dodge; it is Mohg’s hand! Once you see his hand is coming at you, it is time to dodge!
  • Trident attacks are somewhat delayed, so wait just a fraction of a second to dodge them. Also, keep in mind these attacks cover a great range, and sometimes distance is not enough to avoid them, be prepared to dodge.
  • Mohg usually follows a three-hit pattern with his trident, so be prepared to dodge multiple times in a row.

How to Get Damage In

  • Sometimes when Mohg does his overhead slam, he might get stuck in a pillar. This does not happen all the time, and it is hard to predict. Nevertheless, it is the perfect moment to get in one or two hits.
  • Get very close to Mohg and use Mohg’s Shackle item. This will pin him to the ground, allowing you to get several hits in. You can do this twice during the boss battle.
  • You can summon Spirit Ashes and help from other players for this boss fight if you need an extra hand. Here are the best Legendary Spirit Ashes in Elden Ring!
  • Mohg does a thrust attack with his trident. This move leaves him open for a couple of hits.
  • You can also land a few hits after the third trident attack in his combo if you are close enough.
  • Since Magic is somewhat effective against this boss, using ranged spells (not fire ones) is a good idea. Here are all the legendary Sorceries and Incantations in Elden Ring!

There is a step missing in this guide where, in the room with the two ladders, one of them is latched up and it needs to first be dropped down to be reached. When moving backwards from opening the door to the site of grace you must walk up the pipe on the far wall then jump down to the platform that leads you to the latched ladder and the pipe with the hole you can jump in to.

It's funny that every day another website serving gamers is trying to keep Elden Ring in the spotlight. It's over like every game produced in this series. The painful gameplay is a big stressor and hardly worth a repeat regardless of how many things bloggers attempt to keep alive. I played it once and enjoyed the first couple continents then it was just painful and I couldn't wait to finish.

@Mike,

That sounds like a personal issue. I’m having a blast with this game trying different builds etc.
