Furious demigods and brutal boss battles are hiding in every corner of the map in Elden Ring. While some of them are optional, you must defeat the others in order to complete the game’s story. Players receive several runes and a unique profile for emerging victorious in these battles. Ultimately, everything helps create the type of fate each player gets.
One of the bosses players must beat to finish the game is Maliketh the Black Blade. Here is a guide on how to go over its two phases, The Black Blade and Beast Clergyman.
Defeating the Beast Clergyman in Elden Ring
- The foremost thing you need to be aware of is that level 115 and weapons with a +20 or higher are required to fight the Beast Clergyman in Elden Ring. Try to avoid applying Holy and Bleed damage on this creature, as it is immune to both
- The Beast Clergyman is the first stage of Maliketh, the Black Blade. Compared to the other boss fights in Elden Ring, it is easier than the second phase but still quite challenging. Rapid, short-ranged spells and sweeping assaults are used by the Beast Clergyman. The fact that you can deflect harmful attacks is a plus
- Heavy blows can knock the boss unconscious. However, its continual movement makes it difficult to hit with ranged assaults. But this also implies that you may easily dodge them, mainly if you do so by moving ahead rather than to the side
- The second stage of the Meliketh, referred to as The Black Blade will begin after you’ve vanquished the Beast Clergyman. For this stage, keeping in mind and applying the advice from the prior supervisor should work just fine
When you encounter The Black Blade, the primary and most crucial thing to remember is that its sword attacks deliver considerable harm and cause you to take minor damage for five seconds. Your optimal health will be reduced if he strikes you with his sword, but if you live for 20 seconds, it will be replenished.
