Elden Ring bosses guide PCGamesN

Want to know how to beat the Elden Ring bosses? The most defining moments in any of the best Soulslike games are the tough boss fights. They can be tricky for several reasons: some are hard to hit consistently, others can squash you with just one attack. Elden Ring is also an open-world game, so as you’d expect, there are plenty of formidable foes with big health bars waiting to be discovered.

So far, we’ve managed to find out which bosses are in several regions. Since any region can have up to 19 bosses, keeping track of which ones you’ve beaten can be tough.

In this guide, you’ll find a list of all of the Elden Ring bosses we know of so far, where you can find them, which ones are mandatory, and what items they drop when you beat them. It’s worth noting that, generally speaking, as you hunt them down, dungeon bosses are not as hard to kill as the major bosses. However, there are exceptions, so upgrading the Flash of Wondrous Physick with Elden Ring crystal tears can make all the difference.

Elden Ring bosses

To make it easy for you to see which ones you’ve beaten and which ones remain alive, we’ve listed each boss in every region, their locations, and their loot drops. You need to defeat all major bosses to complete the game, so we’ve highlighted each major boss in bold.

Here are all of the bosses in Elden Ring:
