Deathbird (Leyndell)

This Deathbird boss fight can be found eas of the Merchant’s Shack site of grace in Leyndell, Royal Capital. Deathbirds are a pretty common boss so you’ve probably already fought one before.

For defeating this particular Deathbird, you’ll get a Twinbird Kite Shield.

Draconic Tree Sentinel

The Draconic Tree sentinel is a huge knight that rides a horse - similar to the Tree Sentinel in Limgrave. He can be found in Capital Outskirts in Leyndell, Royal Capital.

If you defeat the Draconic Tree Sentinel, you’ll earn yourself the Dragon Greatclaw and the Dragonclaw Shield.

Dung Eater

The Dung Eater is an NPC who you can fight at the outer moat of Leyndell, northwest of the Capital Rampart site of grace. To get to this point in his NPC quest, you’ll need to choose to free the Dung Eater, at which point he’ll leave a note for you at Roundtable Hold and he’ll tell you to meet him in Leyndell.

If you defeat Dung Eater, you’ll earn the Sword of Milos.

Erdtree Avatar

Erdtree Avatar is a common boss found in various places, including Leyndell, Royal Capital. More specifically, he can be found near the Lower Capital Church site of grace in Leyndell. Upon defeating him, you’ll earn a Lord’s Rune.

Esgar, Priest of Blood

Esgar, Priest of Blood is a boss found in Leyndell Catacombs, which is an area deep beneath Leyndell. These Catacombs can be accessed via the Subterranean Shunning-Grounds. Esgar has some pesky dogs, which you’ll want to defeat before focusing your attention on Esgar. Defeating him will reward you with the Lord of Blood’s Exultation.

Esgar, Priest of Blood.

Fell Twins

The Fell Twins can be found on the bridge northwest of the Divine Tower of East Altus: Gate site of grace. This is a duo boss fight in which you’ll have to fight two Ogre-like creatures - one wields a flaming axe and one wields a flaming longsword. Also, to add to the fun - it’s pitch black! Luckily you can see them, but the rest of the area is in darkness. Upon defeating them you’ll unlock the Omenkiller Rollo summon.

Fell Twins.

Godfrey, First Elden Lord (Gold Shade)

Godfrey, First Elden Lord can be found at West Rampart Capital site of grace. He is a golden invader-like version of the physical Godfrey that you’ll fight later in the game.

This Godfrey drops a Talisman Pouch.

Godfrey, First Elden Lord (Gold Shade).

Grave Warden Duelist

Grave Warden Duelist wields a large hammer and can be found at Auriza Side Tomb in Leyndell, Royal Capital as well as Murkwater Catacombs in Limgrave. When you defeat this particular Grave Warden Duelist, he’ll drop the Soldjars of Fortune spirit ash.


Golems are huge stone elite enemies that can be found quite commonly in the late-game areas of Elden Ring. This particular Golem, found west of Divine Bridge site of grace drops a Golem’s Halberd upon being defeated.

If you’re a melee character, the best way to defeat the Golems, who are pretty tanky enemies, is to hit its ankles (the fiery parts) so that it falls over. Then, you’ll have a good few seconds to smack it in the fiery part of his chest for extra damage. On the other hand, if you have any ranged abilities, you can just hit it in the chest without incapacitating it before hand.

Lesser Black Blade Kindred

This is a lesser, unnamed version of the Black Blade Kindred boss found in Caelid and Forbidden Lands. He can be found south of West Capital Rampart. Upon defeating him, he’ll drop a Gargoyle’s Halberd.

Lesser Valiant Gargoyle

The Lesser Valiant Gargoyle is found northeast of the Outer Wall Phantom Tree site of grace. It is essentially the same boss fight as the Valiant Gargoyle (Twinblade) from the Valiant Gargoyle & Valiant Gargoyle (Twinblade) at Siofra Aqueduct. Upon being defeated, he’ll drop a Gargoyle’s Black Axe.

Mohg, the Omen

Mohg the Omen is a Great Enemy boss that is found in the Subterranean Shunning-Grounds in Leyndell, Royal Capital. The closest site of Grace is the Forsaken Depths.

Defeating him will earn you Bloodflame Talons.

Morgott, the Omen King

Morgott the Omen King is found beyond a fog gate nearby the Queen’s Bedchamber site of grace in Leyndell, Royal Capital. This is a non-optional boss as it’s vital to progressing through the main story line.

Morgott is essentially Margit, the Fell Omen but beefed up! Expect similar attacks but also be on guard as he’s stronger and faster than when you fought Margit at Stormveil Castle.

Morgott, the Omen King.

Onyx Lord

This is a non-unique boss that can be found in several places including in the Sealed Tunnel found near the West Gate of Leyndell, Royal Capital. To get into the sealed tunnel, you’ll need to head to the lakeside next to the west gate and locate the small tunnel that heads into the cliff side.

When you walk all the way into the tunnel you’ll come across what appears to be a dead end with a site of grace. Head right and you’ll find a slightly suspicious wall that you’ll be able to pass through if you walk into it. This will take you into the official sealed tunnel area. At several times through this mini dungeon you’ll find supposed dead-ends - you’ll just need to walk into the walls to reveal them and continue on your journey. At the end of this tunnel, you’ll eventually come across the Onyx Lord who will drop the Onyx Lord’s Greatsword.

Ulcerated Tree Spirit

There is an Ulcerated Tree Spirit boss south of the Outer Wall Phantom Tree site of grace. If you defeat him, he may drop a Golden Seed.

Ulcerated Tree Spirit

There is a second Ulcerated Tree Spirit in Leyndell, Royal Capital. It can be found north of Lower Capital Church site of grace and west of Leyndell, Capital Ash. This Ulcerated Tree Spirit may also drop a Golden Seed.

Vargram, the Raging Wolf

Vargram the Raging Wolf is one of the assassination targets assigned to you when you’re at Volcano Manor. You’ll need to find his invasion sign, which is found nearby the Fortified Manor, First Floor site of grace in Leyndell. This sign will be inaccessible if you’ve already defeated Maliketh or Rykard, Lord of Blasphemy - so make sure to take Vargram out before them!

Defeating Vargram, the Raging Wolf will earn you the Raging Wolf Armor set, which includes Raging Wolf Helm, Raging Wolf Armor, Raging Wolf Gauntlets and Raging Wolf Greaves.
