Before you can retrieve the Elden Ring and remake the world as you see fit, you’ll need to get past the game’s final bosses. Here’s how to beat Radagon and the Elden Beast.

If he summons the Elden Ring to appear above your head, run away as quickly as you can. This homing attack can end the battle in one hit if you’ve not adequately leveled your health. This is by far the most deadly attack in his arsenal.

Taking the fight to him

The Elden Beast has a glowing spot on his stomach which, if attacked, will cause extra damage. This weak spot can be targeted by ranged players, but this is a risky strategy for melee users.

That being said, being close to the Elden Beast can sometimes be safer than being far away. It’s a good way to avoid his ranged attacks, but it’s also easy to be caught up in AOE damage.

Ranged fighters will likely have an easier time in this boss than melee players. Those using close quarter weapons should try to stay near to the boss and keep attacking. Fighting too defensively will make this battle very one-sided.

It will mostly be just you running away from him, meaning it’s likely to go on a while. There are plenty of openings to attack the Elden Beast before and after his attacks, so learn to spot them, then take full advantage.

Further tips

We’d advise using your Spirit Ash now, as your summonable allies will draw his attention and fire while you can focus on dealing damage.

We’d also advise using elite summons like the Mimic Tear. This creates an AI clone of yourself, complete with all your stats that is surprisingly reliable and useful against a tough boss.
