General tips

  1. It is not recommended to summon Alexander NPC. First of all, he will prevent you from using the mount and summoning Ashes, and secondly, he won't be very good at fighting the boss.
  2. Instead, a good idea will be to defeat the boss alone or with Spirit Ashes, for example, Black Knife Tiche. He will easily dodge his attacks while constantly provoking the boss and dealing him a lot of damage.
  3. Don't use your mount in the first phase . The only exception is the very beginning of the fight to get to the boss. The Fire Giant has many attacks that you can only avoid with a precise dodge.
  4. Attack the leg that is not armored (left one). This is the weak spot of the boss. If you see the Giant's fur is falling to the ground after several attacks, you have dealt enough damage to stun him for a while.
  5. After you weaken him by attacking his leg, he will gain two new fire attacks. The first is a slowly flying fireball that follows the player. It explodes after some time.
  6. The second attack is a quick fire projectile. It is a good idea to avoid this attack on horseback.
  7. Most attacks deal tremendous damage. Use HP regenerating potion in this fight, even if it regenerates a small percentage of health. Thanks to this, you may (depending on how much HP your character has) avoid dying after one hit.
  8. It is a good idea to equip gear and accessories that protect you from fire damage.
  9. The best tactic, both for melee players and for mages, is to stay close to the boss. Thanks to this, you will make the fight much easier. Many of the boss's attacks will miss you, and you will be very close to his weak point.
  10. Ice attacks deal a lot of damage to the boss. During this fight, it is a good idea to equip weapons or spells that deal this kind of damage.
  11. The Fire Giant is quite resistant to bleeding status, but not completely. Therefore, attacks that impose this status can be useful and shorten the battle a bit. Especially in the first phase.

Mage build - how to fight?

Before the fight, it is worth investing in spells that deal frost damage. We are talking about spells such as Adula's Moonblade or Glinstone Icecrag. A weapon that deals frost damage will also be useful. It can be any weapon with the Ashes of War Hoarfrost Stomp or, for example, the Dark Moon Greatsword or the Icerind Hatchet, which automatically has the Hoarfrost Stomp.

What's more, you can also equip the Snow Witch Hat . The hat additionally strengthens the frost magic.

The moment you enter the boss arena, summon Black Knife Tiche, and then ride on your mount towards him - Elden Ring: Fire Giant - boss, how to beat? - Giant Mountain Peaks - Elden Ring Guide

The moment you enter the boss arena, summon Black Knife Tiche, and then ride on your mount towards him. In this fight, you should shorten the distance between you and the boss as quickly as possible. Thanks to this, he will not use his stronger attacks, such as stomp, which deals a lot of area damage and is very difficult to dodge.

Once you are close to him, dismount and then attack his left foot - Elden Ring: Fire Giant - boss, how to beat? - Giant Mountain Peaks - Elden Ring Guide

Once you are close to him, dismount and then attack his left foot. After a few hits or spells that deal frost damage, you should significantly deplete his health bar. Also, you will stun him for a while.

When the Fire Giant starts rolling to get away from you quickly, mount your horse and get closer to him - Elden Ring: Fire Giant - boss, how to beat? - Giant Mountain Peaks - Elden Ring Guide

When the Fire Giant starts rolling to get away from you quickly, mount your horse and get closer to him. Attack with frost spells. Adula's Moonbladee may be useful. Especially when you use it in such a way both the blade and the projectile hit the target.

Thanks to this, the boss will receive cumulative damage. You will also impose the frostbite status faster.

The second phase of the fight is characteristic - Elden Ring: Fire Giant - boss, how to beat? - Giant Mountain Peaks - Elden Ring Guide

The second phase of the fight is characteristic. First, the boss will make the ground take fire. It is a good idea to keep your distance because the damage from this attack can be lethal for you. Playing as a mage, you can mount the horse and use the Glintstone Icecrag spell until the fire goes out.

However, keep in mind that the range of this spell is not very great. Stand close to the fire while being careful that it does not reach you.

After a few seconds, the fire will extinguish, and the "second phase of attack" will begin - Elden Ring: Fire Giant - boss, how to beat? - Giant Mountain Peaks - Elden Ring Guide

After a few seconds, the fire will extinguish, and the "second phase of attack" will begin. Fire rocks will emerge from the body of the Fire Giant. It is an area attack, but it shouldn't hit you if you shorten the distance between you and the boss. Stay as close to him as possible.

This is also a right time to use Adula's Moonbladee again - Elden Ring: Fire Giant - boss, how to beat? - Giant Mountain Peaks - Elden Ring Guide

This is also a right time to use Adula's Moonbladee again. After casting a few such spells, the boss should die from attacks and frostbite. Remember that you can use this spell while on a mount.

Melee build - how to fight?

Start the fight by using your mount, but only to get close to the boss. It is impossible to dodge the giant's attacks while on horseback. The only way to avoid it is to do a roll at the right moment - when his attack is about to hit you.

For the first part of the fight, stay close to the giant's left leg and attack it as often as possible - Elden Ring: Fire Giant - boss, how to beat? - Giant Mountain Peaks - Elden Ring Guide

For the first part of the fight, stay close to the giant's left leg and attack it as often as possible. After taking about 20% HP of the boss, he will lose the bandage and stop for a moment - this will allow you to perform a series of attacks.

From now on, the enemy will use fire attacks - Elden Ring: Fire Giant - boss, how to beat? - Giant Mountain Peaks - Elden Ring Guide

From now on, the enemy will use fire attacks. The first is a fiery orb that slowly follows the player. It explodes after a while, so try to stay as far away from it as possible. The second attack is exploding pillars of fire. The places where they appear will be illuminated, so avoid them.

This is important when attacking the Giant's foot - you will be constantly surrounded by explosions, so watch your surroundings and stand in a place where you will be safe - Elden Ring: Fire Giant - boss, how to beat? - Giant Mountain Peaks - Elden Ring Guide

This is important when attacking the Giant's foot - you will be constantly surrounded by explosions, so watch your surroundings and stand in a place where you will be safe. This will allow you to attack your opponent almost constantly.

When you deplete the Giant's half of HP bar, the enemy will start to roll more often and use fire attacks - Elden Ring: Fire Giant - boss, how to beat? - Giant Mountain Peaks - Elden Ring Guide

When you deplete the Giant's half of HP bar, the enemy will start to roll more often and use fire attacks. In the second phase, it is worth using a mount, because getting closer to the boss may be troublesome.

The rest of the fight try to stay close to his right thigh - Elden Ring: Fire Giant - boss, how to beat? - Giant Mountain Peaks - Elden Ring Guide

The rest of the fight try to stay close to his right thigh. The opponent usually rolls to the left, so you will avoid a lot of potential damage thanks to this. You will also avoid fire attacks that the boss launches ahead. It may also happen that he will breathe fire - in this situation, run on your horse to the sides, slowly heading towards his right thigh. After a few such cycles, the fight should be over.
