How to Beat Magma Wyrm in Elden Ring

In Elden Ring, there are two Magma Wyrms that you can find & Beat. One is at the end of Gael Tunnel, at the border of Limgrave & Caelid, & the other is at the Lava Lake, South of Fort Lailedd in Mt.Gelmir. The Magma Wyrms are not that tough to beat considering that they do shoot literal Magma at you. There are two main ways you can beat a Magma Wyrm, the Defensive Cheese or the Offensive Strat. Whichever method you choose, here is what you should keep in mind. The Magma Wyrm does two kinds of Magma Attacks, one is by a Breath attack & the second one is by a Magma Charge attack. It also will the Gigantic Curved Sword and ground smash on top of you. At stage 2, it will ignite the Sword, dealing more damage.

Offensive Strat

The Offensive Strat is pretty simple. Get near the Magma Wyrm and get behind it. Once you are there, start slashing at its hind legs. In most cases, the Magma Wyrm won’t be able to get you from that position but when it moves, you will have to reposition. Now and then, you will have to dodge and jump to avoid some attacks but the Strat will get the job done. For more effectiveness, use an Uchigatana Katana or a High damaging weapon. After striking the Magma Wyrm, you will deal enough bleed damage, if you are using the Katana, to beat the boss. It’s simple but it has a risk of dying if you do not dodge it in time. If you are good at dodging then this is the strat you should follow.

If Bleed is not for you then you try out some other builds like the pure Strength build. The Giant Crusher is probably the best weapon to use against the Magma Wyrm in Elden Ring as the Bioss’s weakness is Physical attacks. Another type of build you can try out is Lightning or Holy. But if you are unable to do it then try the following method.

Defensive Cheese

The Defensive Cheese is a pretty simple method and is much safer than the first one. All you will need is a Staff with a strong Spell and the Mimic Tear. While on Torrent, get in and out of the Magma Wyrm’s aggro range. When you are inside of the range, fire 1 or 2 spells, after which run away. Repeat this till you have taken half of the Magma Wyrm’s Health in Elden Ring. Once it’s half, summon your Mimic Tear and let it tank. At this point, just spam Spells and you will be able to beat the Magma Wyrm in Elden Ring. This is the easiest method of the two. You can easily beat the Magam Wyrm from a distance as the Boss losses interest pretty quickly.

If you use a Rock formation in your surrounding, you will be able to get the Magma Wyrm stuck and you can just go to town on it. The Boss is trying to path find your location but gets stuck. If you use your Mimic Tear in your place then you can beat the Magma Wyrm without taking a single point of damage.

Rewards of Beating a Magma Wyrm in Elden Ring

You can defeat either one first whenever you reach their location. Easiest would be the one in Caelid as it is closer to Limgrave. Just keep in mind that you will need to be somewhere between level 30 to 40 to take on a Magma Wyrm. After you defeat the Magma Wyrm at Gael Tunnel in Elden Ring, you will get Runes, Dragon Heart, & the Moonveil Katana. After you defeat the Magma Wyrm at Fort Lailedd in Elden Ring, you will get Runes, Dragon Heart, & unlock Magma Breath.
