General tips

  1. In combat, you can use the help of ghosts - they will be effective in distracting the boss.
  2. Runebear is vulnerable to bleeding, so it will pay off to use a weapon that inflicts this status. The enemy's attacks also impose such a status, so try to stop the build-up of this negative effect.
  3. Runebear is very fast and strong. Most of its attacks can be defended with a shield, but it's easy to lose balance while doing that. Therefore, we recommend dodging towards the opponent and get behind its back as often as possible.

How to defeat?

The pit where you are fighting the Runebear may seem quite large. However, you will quickly find that there is little space here. The animal is very fast and can move to the other end of the arena in a fraction of a second.

Outside of its maw attack, most of Runebear's attacks work over a specific area - Elden Ring: Runebear - boss, how to beat? - Weeping Peninsula - Elden Ring Guide

Outside of its maw attack, most of Runebear's attacks work over a specific area. Its main weapon is the front paws - the animal uses them to hit the ground. Dodge towards the boss - this way you will be able to get behind its back as often as possible. Runebear does not use its hind legs to attack.

The opponent shortens the distance very often and quickly, so you have to be ready to perform another dodge. The attack where the boss raises both paws up can be especially harmful. It may try to grab and bite you, or slam you on the ground - both moves can be fatal.

Stay behind its back and attack whenever you can - Elden Ring: Runebear - boss, how to beat? - Weeping Peninsula - Elden Ring Guide

Stay behind its back and attack whenever you can. Also, don't let yourself be led up to the wall, because it will be more difficult to dodge due to the camera. This can be particularly troublesome in this fight.

If you need to heal yourself, sprint as far away from your opponent as possible and be ready to dodge immediately - Elden Ring: Runebear - boss, how to beat? - Weeping Peninsula - Elden Ring Guide

If you need to heal yourself, sprint as far away from your opponent as possible and be ready to dodge immediately. You can use ghosts that will distract the beast, but they can die very quickly. The opponent is susceptible to bleeding, which can also make this battle much faster.
