Elden Ring Malenia Blade Of Miquella Boss Fight Guide
Malenia Boss Fight Location
In order to get to the location of the Malenia boss fight in Elden Ring, you will need to head to the base of Haligtree. Before doing so, you will also need to unlock Liurnia of the Lakes’ western side, including the Village of Albinaurics. Additionally, we recommend you also gain access to the Mountaintops of the Giants.
How to beat Malenia, Blade of Miquella – Phase One
To beat the Malenia, Blade of Miquella boss in Elden Ring, we recommend you team up with another player. While teaming up with three players is also an option, we would not recommend doing so. This is because Malenia tends to draw strength each time she attacks a player. Having three players will only further increase Malenia’s tendency to heal herself, which might serve to defeat the purpose of the fight.
Once you get another player along, you can begin to split Malenia’s aggro with the help of heavy weapons and jumping attacks. Doing so helps take away her constant attention from one player.
When fighting Malenia, we recommend you use strength weapons. However, if you want to, you can also use a combination of different weapons and a spell caster.
Moving on, during this boss fight in Elden Ring, you will notice that Malenia tends to use jump attacks quite frequently. If not dealt with properly, these attacks can result in fatalities. To dodge them, we recommend you use a great shield in your off-hand. By doing so, you offer yourself the option to defend yourself from the jumping attack by absorbing the deadly blows.
Another great move you can pull off is to simply run away when Malenia completes the first two phases of her attack. After she does so, you can dodge when she attempts to make the third attack.
While the scope for predicting this third attack is quite low, you will need to do your best to read through her movements.
When battling this boss in Elden Ring, we also recommend you use and optimize your talismans. Doing so will help you inflict greater damage upon Malenia.
Phase Two of Malenia, Blade of Miquella Boss Fight in Elden Ring
During the second phase of this boss fight, Malenia will perform two new moves.
The first of these attacks will see her leap into the air. When doing so, she will also attack you with the help of several scarlet spirits. Dodging can help you evade these attacks, as long as you avoid her snooping down on you once she’s done.
Malenia’s first attack in the second phase of this Elden Ring boss fight will see her explode after transforming into a bloom. This explosion inevitably leads to immense damage. Additionally, it can also be rather random, meaning that you or your teammate could come under fire without any prior warning.
And that’s about all you need to know about this boss fight in Elden Ring. Considering the random nature of Malenia’s attacks, surviving with the best of strategies may just prove to be an amazing accomplishment. At the end of the day, the best way to win this fight is by experimenting with which moves work best in your favor.
