I defeated Margit of the Fallen Omen in the first attempt…in the cooperative mode. With two players, we can easily distract him, stay away from the range of his huge magic axe, and cut him down with powerful magic when he turns around. what! He spoke hard, but he fell down like a fool. I confidently went back to fight Margit the Fell alone… and was defeated at least a dozen times.
I was very tired and didn’t really focus on learning and reacting to Margit the Fell’s moves. Like many soul bosses, Margit needs that kind of mastery.He is fast, strong in attack, and has a lot of moves that can hit you at close range with Long distance. You will never be safe in this battle, and the window for a sneak attack is very small. This is an exciting and uphill battle.
If you have trouble defeating Margit, I have always been there, so I can help. Here are the attack modes you need to learn, as well as some techniques to make the battle easier.
Need to watch out for Margit the Fell attacks
Mopping up—— If you stand behind Margit after completing an attack combination, you will be safe for a few seconds-then he may attack you with his tail spinning, knocking you down. It will come out soon, so be prepared.
Magic Blade—— In the first half of the battle, Margit mainly used two weapons to attack: the staff in his right hand and the glowing magic blade he summoned in his left hand (which still causes physical damage). The staff attack is a relatively slow blow, but Margit summons the sword to provide fast, close-range combos, even though he appears to be resuming animation from the staff attack. This is the most troublesome attack for me, because he always uses it when I think I have a chance. For safety’s sake, don’t attempt multiple attacks before dodge or raise the shield.
Blade throwing- When you back up to heal, Margit likes to summon two magic blades again and throw them at you. Every time you drink water some distance from your flask, shoot left and right so that he doesn’t hit you. If you are ready, they are easy to avoid.
Combination- The most dangerous thing in this battle is Margit’s unpredictable combination mode. Sometimes he will swing once or twice, and sometimes he will link the spinning attacks into a multi-strike sequence. Don’t try to attack him: if you think you can get out of range of the staff, just block back or dodge. I think it is easier to block because he will swing many times in a row. Usually you want to keep your distance and wait for his hammer to jump, which makes it easier for you to open.
Hammer jump—— This is Margit’s heaviest blow, but if you dodge correctly, this is also the best window for you to get a few hits. When his health reaches about 60%, Margit will summon a huge glowing hammer with his left hand. He will wave it at you at close range, but when you pull a distance, he will make a jumping overhead attack. You want to bait, then roll at him at the last minute, avoid the impact and stand up in front of Margit. This will give you a few seconds of security to wailing at him.
If you don’t use magic, turn all your flasks into scarlet tears
This is a small thing, but it will help you get more healing power in your back pocket, thus helping you to fight. In the location of Lost Grace, you can balance the use of the flask between Crimson Tears (HP) and Azure Tears (FP). Set all four to Crimson Tears so you can drink four life-giving liquids.
However, if you rely on magic attacks to cause damage, you need at least a bottle of Azure Tears to replenish your FP. See if you can pass one, and if you find yourself running out of FP before Margit finishes, increase the balance to 50-50.
Use mental gray to distract Margit
Spirit Ashes are the summonable NPCs of the Elden Ring version, such as Solaire, but this time they are items that you can obtain and can be reused throughout the game. You can purchase two types of ashes from Merchant Kalé near Limgrave: Lone Wolf Ashes and Noble Wizard Ashes.
Lone Wolf Ash is very suitable for this fight, because they will produce three wolves, which can distract Margit for a while. You don’t expect them to cause harm: they just need to live long enough to pull the hatred away from you so you can rush in and get some blows.
Magic user: use animal claws or amphibole to attack
These two spells are a big blow to Margit, and when used together with Lone Wolf Ash, you will be able to cause a lot of damage to him while mainly avoiding his anger. If you want real one-on-one combat, using magic is trickier, but it’s definitely feasible.
The claw of the beast is the starting spell of the prophet profession and is adjusted according to beliefs. You can recharge spells to increase range and damage, which is an amazing move-but you have to use it very carefully, because Margit has both a jumping attack and a throwing knife that hits you quickly within range . If you know Margit’s range, you can stand outside of it, charge Beast Claws, and release before he jumps at you to cause some damage.
When you are close, don’t try to charge for this kind of attack-Margit is too fast and will fix you with a combination before you release it.
Glintstone Stars is a spell that can create three magic missiles, which will automatically target Margit. You can get it from Sorceress Salen. Once you kill the pumpkin head boss, she will appear in the Post Town Remains on the east side of the map. To find Post Town Remains, cross the bridge and look for some ruins full of large plants (look up, one of them will shoot a magic beam at you). The stairs in the ruins lead to the boss room. When casting Glintstone Stars, make sure to maintain a safe range. Once again, when you are stuck in your casting animation, you don’t want to be pinned.
Equip the Crucible armor set
The strongest and heaviest armor available in the network test will provide you with better defense than the starting equipment of most classes, especially the prophet or champion suit. The Crucible suit is easy to find, and if you add some leveling points to the strength, you will be able to wear it while maintaining a medium gear load.
To find the cauldron set, head to the east side of Limgrave and look for a carriage dragged by two giants, followed by a team of knights and undead. It’s hard to miss. Kill the followers first (drive attack while riding makes this job easy), then by hitting the giant, dodge the foot attack, and repeat until they are all dead, knocking down the giant one at a time. Then you can reach the box behind the carriage.
Margit slow with a dragon scale knife
In this early Elden Ring, one of the most powerful weapon arts was a skill called the Hail Sword, which was attached to the dragon scale blade. The Hail Sword will summon a flash of ice lightning (lightning ice?), causing the weapon to cause damage to two types of elements for approximately 20 seconds. But the important point here is that if you can hit Margit quickly enough in a row, the ice cubes will have a cold effect, significantly slowing his movement speed. Because his speed is too fast, it is difficult to succeed, but if you can do it, Margit will be easier to control in a period of time.
The Dragonscale Blade is a good weapon for building faith, because it can increase strength, agility and faith. You can get it by killing the troll leader in the Limgrave Tunnels mine, which is located at the northern end of the lake slope in the center of the map.
