How to Kill Margit the Fell Omen in Elden Ring
Margit the Fell Omen is the final boss in the game and one of the toughest opponents you will come across. This isn’t an optional boss as you need to fight them to enter the Legacy Dungeon.

You’ll need to take proper steps to prepare yourself including wearing a specific type of armor that isn’t too heavy but will also protect you from hits, like the Bloody Wolf armor. Use a decent shield like the Barricade Shield which you can get from Bloodhound Knight Darriwil. Having Consumables ready like Flasks to restore HP and materials to craft ammunition in an emergency is vital.
Attacking from behind is not too viable a strategy for this boss as they’re going to turn around as they do their spinning attack.
Use Spirits to help you in your fight as it can ge hard to take them out alone. If they can distract Margit long enough, you can get in a couple of hits. The best time to attack is during the recovery animation which occurs after their special attacks.
When they’re finally down, use your critical attack on them to finish them off.
The monster is well known for its immense reach and jump attacks. Even if you’re out of melee range, they can throw projectiles at you when you least expect them. It’s a good idea to train your reflexes to block quickly.
Especially vicious is the vertical hammer blow that takes out a large portion of your health. Avoiding this is difficult because the monster’s pace is too erratic to predict. There’s no harm in restraining the battle if you lose health too quickly.
When you finally defeat the boss you can reap the high rewards of 8000 Runes and gain entry into the castle it guards.
