Morgott is waiting for you right next to the Erdtree in the capital and he can really put up a fight and expect what you don’t know. If this ruler is giving you trouble, you’ve got a few tips to make your life easier. Here’s How to beat Morgott, The Elden Ring in The Omen King.
Morgott, The Omen King for Preparing
It turns out that Morgott is actually the first major boss in the game, Margit. This means that Margit’s Shackle – a key item that you buy from Patches – can still be used to access his full moveset.
There will be a ton of messages on the ground before the fog door that leads to the fight, but make sure to look past them to find Melina’s summon sign. You can make this a three-on-one fight by using Spirit Ashes – preferably the Mimic Tear Ashes that are found in Nokron, Eternal City.
No matter which summon spirit you choose, having three ways to attack the boss is a huge help. He’ll have to split his attention between the three of you and Melina is a tank of some sort, but the fact is that she’s wearing any real armor. The Mimic Tear Ashes can be upgraded to be just as sturdy. Bloodflame Blade or Blood Loss Weapons to deal with additional damage
Morgott, The Omen King Phase 1
Since this is Margit’s true form, many of the moves are about the same as you are about to go. There are more than a few new ones out there to look out for, but the lightning hammer and sword make a return. There’s also a lightning spear around this time, and it can be any target at the thrown.
Morgott will probably open up the spear throw, then get into his regular lightning weapon antics with a new sword that comes with some deceptively wide range. You’ll have Margit’s Shackle unless you have all the usual frantic jumps in the mix.
With all that said, the first phase should be surprisingly simple to use if you have the openings provided by Melina’s powerful Incantations and the Mimic Tear’s distractions. Don’t let Morgott get off of multiple combos without retaliating, or you’ll be fighting forever. Instead, go for the massive damage caused by the go-ahead.
I used the Moonveil katana with plenty of points in the middle range for decent damage, giving me just enough time to dodge if the boss’s focus ever shifted to me.
Morgott, The Omen King Phase 2
When the second phase begins, the Omen King loses 50% of his HP. When that happens, he erupts with energy that pushes you back and causes attacks to come up from the ground. When you start this phase, you hear the screams. Your build is more range-focused if he screams as you can actually continue to get hits.
At this point, Morgott will enchant his weapon with black flames and switch between it, a lightning sword, hammer, and spear. His jumping restriction is also lifted, meaning Margit’s Shackle has done its job and outlives its usefulness.
The angles get faster and more angles from the get-go, but the Omen King’s attention shouldn’t be on you 100% of the time. If you ever need healing desperately, stand next to Melina when a golden tree forms near her – this is a healing inclusion that will help you find a tough spot.
Offensively, use blood loss effects, Sorceries, and Incantations to keep up with the pressure and even get some staggers to end the fight, as prolonging it is worse for you than for him.
