Everyone knows that most Elden Ring players will resort to guides to defeat the soul-crushingly difficult bosses of this game. The game is known for its stupendously difficult gameplay, accentuated by the nightmarish bosses of this game. Each boss is a megalodon-sized threat on its own, and Mohg, Lord of Blood, is no different.
There are many bosses in this game, but few come close to the difficulty of the Lord of Blood himself. If you have trouble defeating this bloodthirsty demon or want to know how to from beforehand, then start reading. Here, you will learn some interesting lore about Mohg and also learn where to find him and end him.
Who Is Mohg, Lord Of Blood?
“Dearest Miquella. You must abide alone for a while
Welcome, honored guest. To the birthplace of our dynasty!”
Mohg, Lord of Blood, is one of the late-game bosses in Elden Ring. He is known as Mohg, the Omen demigod, similar to his twin brother Morgott, the Omen King. People of the Omen kind are considered to be royal and are cursed. Unlike his twin, Mohg accepted his curse after interacting with the Formless Mother. He then gained the powers of Bloodflame magic.
Even though he is a royal Omen demigod, he can’t ascend to the throne because he is not an Empyrean. To do so, he wishes to use Miquella, making him a godlike being, and serve the throne as his consort. Miquella is the immortal twin of Malenia, Blade of Miquella, who is by far the toughest boss in Elden Ring.
How To Find Mohg, Lord Of Blood?
To find Elden Ring Mohg, you have to first reach Mohgwyn Palace, deep inside Caelid from the Consecrated Snowfields.
To get to him, there are lots of steps you need to take starting from the start of the game. This game is huge and can take more than 100+ hours to reach the final boss. However, you can reach him at around the 70% mark.
How To Beat Mohg, Lord Of Blood?
Defeating Mohg, the Lord of Blood, is not an easy task. He has high HP, and his Mohg Blood Loss bleeding effect will damage you. To defeat him, you need to think of a plan to evade all of his attacks. However, you will only be able to do so if you know how he attacks and the timing of his attacks.
When you consider Elden Ring builds, then there are two types of builds you can think of. One is the close combat melee focused, and the other is the long-range archery cum magic wielding sorcerer.
If you wish to defeat Mohg, then I have laid out the strategy for doing so for both types of builds.

The main attacks of Mohg and their counters are:
|A forward slash that explodes in your face; causes blood loss.
|Roll away at the right moment.
|Mohg jumps up and splatters Bloodflame all over the arena.
|Roll top the sides and away from the range of the attack.
|A two to three-hit horizontal spear swings.
|Roll forward behind him.
|Mohg thrusts his spear towards you. If it hits the ground, he pulls it up soon.
|Roll forward and behind him.
|Mohg holds his spear vertically above, creating a blood ring around you.
|This effect cannot be negated. Therefore, simply go behind him and hit him multiple times.
|When his health is halved, he will thrust his spear up thrice. Each time, you will lose HP due to blood loss.
|This attack is unavoidable. However, if you equip the Purifying Crystal Tear, you can greatly reduce the damage of blood loss and survive.
|Same as Bloodboon.

Best Tips And Tricks To Defeat Mohg, Lord Of Blood
Some of the most useful things to know before facing Mohg (and dying repeatedly) are:
- You can find the special item called Mohg’s Shackle in the Subterranean Shunning Grounds before entering Mohgwyn Palace. You can use this item once in the fight to stun him for some time and get some free hits on him. However, you cannot do so in the second phase of the fight.
- It’s best to mix your Wondrous Physick with Purifying Crystal Tears (received from NPC invader Eleonara) to reduce the build-up of blood loss. You will also take less damage when he does his Bloodboon Ritual countdown.
- When you reduce his health by 10%, 25%, and 40%, he will recite “Tres!”, “Dos!” And “Unus!” respectively.
- It’s best to equip heavy armor that reduces physical damage, blood loss, and even burning damage.
- You should use katanas for this fight, like the Moonveil Katana Elden Ring. Mohg is ironically susceptible to blood loss (the jokes on him) and can be staggered easily with it.
Strategy For Melee Builds
If you are a melee user, you can defeat him by:
It’s best if you have an Elden Ring Dexterity build since you need to be agile on your feet and quick with your attacks. In this phase, he will mostly have physical attacks that are mostly horizontal swipes.
Simply dodge in front of him and get behind him for free hits. Most of his attacks are telegraphed. Therefore, it is easy to memorize the patterns. However, he can sometimes mix up his attacks. This is why you must remain alert at all times and dodge away at the right window of opportunity.
Try to hit him from behind by rolling behind him during an attack and between attacks. Try to stay away from him or behind if he jumps up in the air and throws Bloodflame at you, which covers a large area.
He will do the ritual countdown thrice when his HP drops by 10%, 25%, and 40%.
This phase begins when he reaches half health. He will start by initiating his Bloodboon Ritual, which does blood loss damage three times. It’s best to chuck your Wondrous Physick with Purifying Crystal Tear between each countdown signified by Tres, Duo, Unus!
In this phase, he gets faster and attacks relentlessly. You need to be agile and constantly on your toes to make the best attacking opportunities yourself.
Strategy For Ranged And Magic Builds
If you have an Elden Ring ranged build or use lots of magic spells, you can defeat Mohg by:
In the fruit phase, stay clear and dodge his attacks one by one. When he slows down and walks menacingly, use spells like Carian Glintblade or Sling Flame. Try to play it cautiously since he attacks fast sometimes, giving you less time to cast your spells.
It’s the same here as the first phase. Simply stay clear from his attacks and dodge them on time. Heal yourself and cast spells when you get long windows of opportunity.
