General tips

  1. In the case of Erdtree Avatars found in open locations, you can use Torrent. This does not apply to dungeon Avatars.
  2. If you want to fight an Avatar on horseback, prepare a supply of Rowa Raisins. Hotkey this item to be able to heal Torrent whenever needed.
  3. You can use Ashes and allies in this fight.
  4. If the enemy took a lot of your HP, don't be afraid to simply back away to regenerate it, as when disengaged, the boss doesn't regenerate his health instantly.

Melee build - how to fight?

The Erdtree Avatar is a large, headless opponent armed with a huge staff. He appears in various locations of the world. Most of the time, they guard Minor Erdtrees, so when you see such an object, it means that the enemy is nearby. This battle is completely optional, but defeating them is worth it, as they leave a lot of interesting materials. The different instances do not differ much from each other, so we supplied universal tactics that apply to all of them.

Erdtree Avatars are best dealt with while on horseback. As a result, have a supply of Rowa Rasins in order to be able to heal Torrent. Set a hotkey for this item and use it if necessary. Before the battle starts, learn the layout of the arena, so you're not get blocked on a obstacle. Your biggest concern during horseback combat is the large range of the boss's staff swing. The rest of the boss's attacks are not that dangerous, or are easy to avoid by dashing.

When using Torrent, is to the best to circle around the opponent, dealing powerful or fast attacks at its back - Elden Ring: Erdtree Avatar boss battle - how to defeat? - Weeping Peninsula - Elden Ring Guide

When using Torrent, is to the best to circle around the opponent, dealing powerful or fast attacks at its back. However, you need to watch out for the aforementioned swings, as it is hard to determine from which side the enemy will attack. As a result, after a few hits of your own, retreat back to a safe distance.

If the Avatar leaps into the air, run away from it as quickly as possible - Elden Ring: Erdtree Avatar boss battle - how to defeat? - Weeping Peninsula - Elden Ring Guide

If the Avatar leaps into the air, run away from it as quickly as possible . If, on the other hand, he hits the ground with his staff, a cluster of homing golden missiles will fly in your direction. When that happens, simply stay mobile. The projectiles will miss their target and you can return to attacking the boss once animation concludes Repeat this pattern until the boss is defeated.

For melee players, the battle doesn't change much - Elden Ring: Erdtree Avatar boss battle - how to defeat? - Weeping Peninsula - Elden Ring Guide

For melee players, the battle doesn't change much. First of all, you have to watch out for the enemy's jump and missiles fired after he hits the ground with his staff. These slowly home towards you, so it is best to gain some distance and dodge as the missiles appear.

Melee combat means a lot of dodging to avoid the swings. It takes some practice, but after a while, you should learn the enemy attack patterns.

The different instances of this fight play out the same way - Elden Ring: Erdtree Avatar boss battle - how to defeat? - Weeping Peninsula - Elden Ring Guide

The different instances of this fight play out the same way. However, there are two exceptions - Erdtree Avatar from Mountaintops of the Giants and the one from Caelid. The Mountaintops one has a unique ability to create his own clone . The summoned clone shares the health bar with the boss, so it doesn't matter which target you'll choose. You only need to watch out for two attackers instead of one. Best way of dealing with this situation is to get the attention of one of them and kite him away from the other one. If you manage to kite one of the opponents far enough, the second one will disengage and return to his initial position.

Now for the Caelid Avatar - Elden Ring: Erdtree Avatar boss battle - how to defeat? - Weeping Peninsula - Elden Ring Guide

Now for the Caelid Avatar. This one has the ability to apply scarlet rot status . Watch out for it and keep your distance to avoid serious damage - the attack is telegraphed by the opponent stomping the ground and inducing a brown cloud. If that happens, stop attacking and run away. Aside from these two instances, the remaining battles take place the same.
