Read this guide to learn how to beat the Grave Warden Duelist in Elden Ring.

The Grave Warden Duelist is one of the many bosses you will come across in Elden Ring, and beating it is crucial to progressing in the game. However, if you are new to the game, doing so can be easier said than done. If you are one of those who are looking to know more about this boss fight, we have got just the guide for you. Here, we will show you all you need to do to defeat the Grave Warden Duelist.

How to Beat Grave Warden Duelist in Elden Ring?



To beat the Grave Warden Duelist in Elden Ring, you need to go to the end of the Murkwater Catacombs in Limgrave. When doing so, we recommend you have a minimum level of 16.

Once you do make it to the catacombs, you will encounter the Grave Warden Duelist himself. The boss will initiate battle proceedings by swinging two huge hammers linked with chains. The process of swinging will almost be continuous, and this means that the boss will end up wasting most of his attacks.


You can use these blind swings to your advantage with the help of the Lone Wolf Ashes. These ashes result in the spawning of wolves. The wolves work as a distraction, taking the Duelist’s attention away from you. We recommend you use this time to attack the boss. You will find that this strategy will result in you quickly launching a scathing offensive upon the now-overwhelmed boss.

As you keep battling the Grave Warden Duelist, you will notice the boss growing in aggression and damage-dealing abilities. When doing so, he will flash in a shade of red upon charging. If your Lone Wolf Ashes are still active, they will help in effectively numbing the power-enhanced boss.

We recommend you keep relenting with your offensive moves. Keep doing so until you find the boss crouching. Him doing so will leave further room for you to mount attacks. Continuing to attack for some more time will eventually see the boss succumb to damage in Elden Ring.


So there you have it. This is all you need to know about the Grave Warden Duelist in Elden Ring. As you can see, defeating this boss is actually quite easy. We recommend you follow all of the steps in this guide to quickly get rid of this boss.
