In Subterranean Shunning-Grounds, you can encounter Mohg the Omen, who is immune to negative statuses. Use Mohg\’s Shackle on him twice before his HP is reduced to half. To reach Subterranean Shunning-Grounds, go to Leyndell, Ashen Capital, and head southwest to find a hatch in the ground. Jump down onto the platforms to reach Forsaken Depths, where Mohg the Omen awaits. You can fight him with the help of other players or summoning ashes.

Defeating Mohg the Omen, will give you Runes (75,000) and the Bloodflame Talons incantation. You will also find Erdtree\’s Favor 1 nearby. It is an amulet that increases the maximum HP, stamina, and load capacity.

General advice

  1. If you want to defeat Mohg, the Lord of Blood, quickly, use weapons that cause bleeding. Kukri and throwing knives can also be effective.
  2. Before the boss fight, take advantage of the time you have to use various buffs and summons. Mohg will approach you slowly from the other end of the arena.
  3. To remove the curse of the Lord of Blood, use a Purifying Crystal Tear on the Flask of Wondrous Physick. You can get it after defeating Eleanor in the Second Church of Marika in the Altus Plateau.
  4. If you don\’t have a Purifying Crystal Tear, heal between the second and third Nihil to survive the curse damage.
  5. Be careful of Mohg\’s attacks, even if you dodge them. They can still cause damage from blood or fire.
  6. For mages, use the Cerulean Hidden Tear and Comet Azur to quickly get to the second phase of the fight. Mohg\’s slowness makes it possible to use this combo multiple times.
  7. Use Mohg\’s Shackle to chain him to the ground for three seconds, but only during the first phase.
  8. Although Mohg has high resistance to poison, frostbite, and scarlet rot, it is still possible to inflict damage with these attacks.
  9. Equip gear that increases your strength and resistance to physical damage before the fight, especially in the second phase.

How to Fight as a Mage?

As a mage, choose the Cerulean Hidden Tear and Purifying Crystal Tear for your Flask of Wondrous Physick before entering the arena. This will protect you from the curse and allow you to use spells for ten seconds without consuming mana. Make sure to have at least 60 points of Intelligence to use Comet Azur in the fight.

When you enter the arena, summon Spirit Ashes to make the fight easier. Black Knife Tiche and Crystalian are good options, as are Ashes of Jellyfish or Mimic Tear.

Drink the Flask of Wondrous Physick and use Comet Azur to take more than half of Mohg\’s HP bar. Hold the spell until your mana runs out or the boss gets close enough to attack you.

If you can\’t use Comet Azur, use the charged Magic Glintblade spell instead. Use as many magic arrows as possible before the boss reaches you to deal a significant amount of damage.

Mohg has several melee attacks that can reach you even if you maintain a fair distance. However, they are slow and easy to dodge. Avoid standing in front of the boss as he will cause a fiery explosion after a short while.

When the boss\’s health drops to around 50%, and you have three red circles around your character, he will start chanting the word Nihil three times. After each word, one red circle will disappear, but you will take a lot of damage. Additionally, Mohg will heal himself and recover a certain amount of HP. If you don\’t remove the curse tear, heal between the second and third Nihil to survive the attack.

In the second phase, Mohg will gain speed and rise into the air using wings. Most of his attacks will have fire and blood spray from now on. Even if you dodge the attack, there is a high chance you will take some damage. As a result, it is better not to have low HP for too long, as it may lead to your death.

If you see that the attack will leave a bloodflame spray, stay away from the boss. After a while, this flame will explode, dealing blood and fire damage. Use spells while maintaining a distance between the character and the boss instead.

Be cautious mainly of the attack where the boss rises into the air. After a while, he will approach you and attack with his weapon. Dodge forward to get behind him and keep casting spells.

Melee build – how to fight?

It is best to finish the fight with Mohg as soon as possible. Therefore, after starting the fight, reduce the distance quickly and attack. The opponent is vulnerable to bleeding, so use a weapon that inflicts this type of status. If you also use the Mimic Tear Ashes, you may be able to end the fight before moving on to the second phase.

You may notice a round seal on your character during the fight, indicating that the boss has cursed you. To protect yourself, use a Flask of Wondrous Physick with a Purifying Crystal Tear. This will make entering the second phase less challenging.

In the first phase, the enemy mainly attacks with his trident, causing physical damage. These attacks are relatively easy to avoid. Mohg swings his weapon, and the best way to avoid it is to dodge right after the enemy\’s attack. Many combos start similarly but end differently. Watch out for the attack where the enemy sticks his weapon into the ground. The boss will deal damage by pulling it out.

The Elden Ring: Mohg, Lord of Blood boss can \”spray\” fire that will cause damage to the character and build up bleeding. This attack is indicated by a ring above his head. The left side is the best position to dodge the trident\’s attacks. In the second phase, the boss will become more aggressive when his HP is reduced by half. Healing between each \”Nihil\” spoken by the opponent can help survive the curse attack. The second stage is more challenging as the opponent sprays fire all over the arena and each swing of his weapon is a dose of fire. The opponent often rises into the air, spreading bloodflame in front of him and lands with a powerful weapon swing. Dodging towards him to get behind his back or left is ideal to avoid fire and attacks with a trident. The opponent\’s charge attack is easy to avoid by dodging to the side, and it\’s essential not to stand in front of the opponent because he will also spray some fire after charge. The attack with sticking the weapon into the ground is now more dangerous than in the first phase as it will cause an explosion when the boss pulls it out.
