From Software’s latest grueling RPG has arrived in the form of Elden Ring. Taking players on an epic quest through the Lands Between to become an Elden Lord, the game pits you against over 50 boss battles, both necessary to beat the story and just wander the open world. In this Elden Ring Boss Orders Guidewe will walk you through every boss in the game and where to find them.
How many bosses are there in Elden Ring?
There are 81 boss battles (82 if you want to count Patches, though remember not to kill him!) that you can face in The Lands Between in Elden Ring. However, keep in mind that you can beat the main story of the game without having to fight everyone.
Many of these are optional and can simply be avoided by giving them a wide berth in the open world.
All Elden Ring bosses and where to find them
Below is the list of the bosses you’ll encounter in the Elden Ring, broken down into the different areas of the Lands Between where you’ll find them. The locations are in the order you’re likely to go through them, but as we noted, because some of them are tucked away in areas you might completely miss, there’s no specific “order” in which you’ll need to take them. . .
If one gives you some trouble, just walk away, do something else to make yourself stronger, and try to deal with them again at a later time.
Editor’s Note: Some of these potholes can be found in multiple locations. We have listed them to the earliest instance that they can be found in the lists below.
