This post shares information regarding Elden Ring’s end game, specifically, player actions after Leyndell, Royal Capital and gamers defeating Morgott, The Omen.

Mountaintops of the Giants

Players will access this area of the Elden Ring utilizing the Grand Lift of Rold via a medallion provided by Melina after defeating all the bosses in Leyndell, Royal Capital. Players must make their way to the forge where Melina will sacrifice herself to burn the erdtree defeating The Fire Giant along the way. The boss encounter has two phases and his ankle is particularly vulnerable during phase one. Playing astrologer mage presented challenges on this boss due to low vigor. However, looting the crimson amber medallion +2 and moving points from endurance to vigor via a respec with Rennala solved the Fire Giant encounter after a solid 20+ deaths.

Crumbling Farum Azula

After defeating the fire giant and touching the site of grace on the forge rim and the Melina cut scene, players will be transported to Crumbling Farum Azula where two bosses await. Navigating the last major dungeon of the game and reaching the various save points seemed intuitive in a way players may be able to actually play a major dungeon without looking up how to get to the next site of grace. The first boss encounter is against the God Skin Duo

Maliketh, the Black Blade

How many times does the average Elden Ring player have to die fighting a boss before finally defeating the encounter? You can watch the astrologer mage absolutely MELT phase one of the encounter and then pillar hump the boss in phase two like playing frost mage in arena 2s when I would pillar hump my opponents trying to let my cool downs recharge. Players utilizing terrain, particularly the pillars in this encounter, will lead to success. The author of this post was having trouble when Maliketh would emerge in phase 2, however, utilizing the pillar saved a lot of pain. Comet hit so hard the author was able to carry more healing potions. Player learning curve on the encounter and learning from other players, their experiences, the class they played, how they downed bosses are key to this Elden Ring adventure. Stars of Ruin was clutch finishing Maliketh.

Leyndell, Ashen Capital

Players will be returned to Leyndell, now in ruins. There aren’t a lot of things to do other than find the bosses and complete Brother Coryn’s quest. Players must first defeat Sir Gideon Onfir.

Players will then move to Godfrey, First Elden Lord and Hoarah Loux, Warrior in Phase 2 of the encounter.

Finally, players will fight the last boss of the game. Radagon of the Golden Order in Phase One and the Elden Beast in Phase 2
