General tips

  1. During the boss fight you can summon reinforcements in form of other players or ashes.
  2. The Red Wolf deals mostly magic damage. You should equip gear increasing your resistance to magic.
  3. Watch out for its sword which it conjures while attacking. These are mainly horizontal attacks.
  4. You can block its attacks with a shield. Be careful when the boss jumps into the air. In this case dodging when it lands is much safer than blocking.

Mage build - how to fight?

Red Wolf of Radagon is a very fast and agile opponent. He rarely exposes himself to attack and keeps jumping away. He also often uses magic attacks what will follow you. Therefore, it is worth getting a relatively fast weapon and armor that will protect you not only from magic, but also from physical damage.

You should summon someone to help you first, mainly to distract the boss. The Red Wolf is very aggressive and doesn't give you much time to cast spells. Ashes which summon several units at a time will be helpful, such as the wolves or demi-humans.

During the battle you should run away to a safe distance and then cast as many spells as you can - Elden Ring: Red Wolf of Radagon - boss, how to beat? - Liurnia of the Lakes - Elden Ring Guide

During the battle you should run away to a safe distance and then cast as many spells as you can. The boss is, unfortunately, quite agile and dodges as soon as you cast a spell. This makes Magic Glintblade and the Carian Slicer/Piercer invaluable.

Watch out for the wolf's magic attacks - Elden Ring: Red Wolf of Radagon - boss, how to beat? - Liurnia of the Lakes - Elden Ring Guide

Watch out for the wolf's magic attacks. It doesn't fire them immediately after conjuring, but once the blades materialize. It often fires swords and then immediately jumps. After dodging its magic be ready to dodge again.

Melee build - how to fight?

Try to keep a moderate distance during most of the fight - Elden Ring: Red Wolf of Radagon - boss, how to beat? - Liurnia of the Lakes - Elden Ring Guide

Try to keep a moderate distance during most of the fight. The reason is that when you are far away from the boss, he will attack by jumping into the air with a sword in its teeth. Avoiding this attack is relatively easy (dodge upon landing), so you can gain a few precious seconds to attack, because the wolf will need a breather.

At this distance, however, you have to watch out for his magical attacks. If three blue clusters of spells appear near the boss, prepare to sprint sideways - this is the easiest way to avoid the triple shots. This also applies to the single projectile that the boss will also shoot.

The wolf will also often shorten the distance - Elden Ring: Red Wolf of Radagon - boss, how to beat? - Liurnia of the Lakes - Elden Ring Guide

The wolf will also often shorten the distance. In such situations, be prepared to dodge a whole series of attacks - especially bites. His attacks will throw you out of balance very quickly, so use a shield as a protection.

If possible, stay behind the boss's back - this way, the magic sword's attacks will be easier to avoid - Elden Ring: Red Wolf of Radagon - boss, how to beat? - Liurnia of the Lakes - Elden Ring Guide

If possible, stay behind the boss's back - this way, the magic sword's attacks will be easier to avoid. The same applies to the boss's biting attacks. It's best to dodge towards him, to get behind his back as often as possible.

As for the rest of the magic attacks, watch out for the one that materializes in his mouth - Elden Ring: Red Wolf of Radagon - boss, how to beat? - Liurnia of the Lakes - Elden Ring Guide

As for the rest of the magic attacks, watch out for the one that materializes in his mouth. After that, the wolf will jump into the air and release an arrow that deals high damage. You can dodge it just like the other missiles - moving quickly to the side, preferably sprinting. A well-timed dodge will, of course, also work.

If you need healing, do it after you've avoided an attack series - Elden Ring: Red Wolf of Radagon - boss, how to beat? - Liurnia of the Lakes - Elden Ring Guide

If you need healing, do it after you've avoided an attack series. If you don't feel comfortable doing it, you can also move away across a longer distance and then use the potion.
