Dragonlord Placidusax

Dragonlord Placidusax has his own boss arena. To get there, start at the Beside the Great Bridge site of grace and turn around to take the elevator back down into the church. Go past the Azula Beastmen, head right and then make a left turn, and leave the church. Head straight ahead out of the church, towards the trees, and look over the cliff for a platform to drop down to. Follow the path to the end, and look for a hole on the stone floor that doesn’t have bones in it. You’ll get a prompt to ‘Lay down’, which will then teleport you to the Dragonlord’s arena.

The Dragonlord Placidusax is a formidable opponent. His weak spot, like most dragon bosses, is his head - or in this case, his multiple heads. Hitting his heads is the best way to get high damage in but this is no easy task. In addition to being a colossal boss with hard hitting bites and brutal tail swipes, he’ll also summon huge lightning bolts from the sky and breathe out green fire.

When you defeat him, you’ll earn the Remembrance of the Dragonlord.

Godskin Duo

You can find the Godskin Duo just up the stairs from the Dragon Temple Transept site of grace located in the Crumbling Farum Azula Legacy Dungeon.

This is unlike any bosses in the game so far. When you defeat one of the Godskin’s, a portion of their health bar will disappear. When you defeat the second one, they’ll respawn one at a time until the entire health bar is depleted. The Godskin Noble is the tougher to fight out of the two as its inflated rolling attacks can be awkward to dodge. The Godskin Apostle has more range due to its elongated body although both of them can hurl Black Flames at you. Head over to our guide on how to defeat the Godskin Duo for more information.

When you defeat them, you’ll earn the Ash of War: Black Flame Tornado, Smithing-Stone Miner’s Bell Bearing [4] and 170,000 Runes.

Beast Clergyman / Maliketh, the Black Blade

This is a required boss fight to progress in the main story. He can be found in the large arena like area southeast of the Beside the Great Bridge site of grace. When you first begin this fight, you’ll be fighting a Beast Clergyman but when you deplete his healthbar to 50%, he’ll become Maliketh, the Black Blade. During the Maliketh phase you’ll need to be agile enough to dodge him jumping around and slicing at you with his pretty massive sword.

When you defeat him, you’ll earn the Remembrance of the Black Blade and 220,000 Runes.

Draconic Tree Sentinel

The Lesser Draconic Tree Sentinel is found outside the arena where you’ll battle Maliketh, so just southeast of Beside the Great Bridge site of grace. You’ll have likely encountered a Draconic Tree Sentinel at Capital Outskirts, and the Draconic Tree Sentinel is a similar fight to the Tree Sentinel found in Limgrave too.

Defeating this Draconic Tree Sentinel will earn you the Malformed Dragon Set, which consists of Malformed Dragon Helm, Malformed Dragon Armor, Malformed Dragon Gauntlets and Malformed Dragon Greaves.
