Morgott is a major boss in Elden Ring and the current king of the Lands Between. He’s also a foe you’ve faced before but in a different guise. Here’s how to beat Morgott the Omen King.

The Morgott boss in Elden Ring takes place shortly after the battle with the golden Godfrey as you make your way towards the foot of the Erd Tree – and the throne King Morgott presently sits on. Spoiler alert, but as you’re likely to have already figured out, Morgott the Omen King is the true identity of Margit the Fell Omen. A boss you may have already faced twice before in the game.

Morgott is the current king of the Lands Between, having beaten all his other demigod siblings to take the throne. He’s also a character you’ll already be familiar with as you will have faced Margit when you entered Stormveil Castle, but there’s also a second encounter on the battlefield of the Altus Plateau. This time, however, Morgott isn’t playing around, as the Tarnished has become a real threat to his rule, so now, he wants you out of the way. Here’s how to get to Morgott the Omen King in Elden Ring – and how to end his reign.

How to get to Morgott The Omen King in Elden Ring

Finding Morgott is easy, once you’ve defeated Godfrey, just exit his arena and turn left. You’ll see some stairs and the path will be littered with the corpses of Palm Readers, a fell omen of the battle to come.

You’ll arrive at Marika’s bed-chamber, but the Goddess is nowhere to be found. Instead, a Black Knife Assassin will attack you. This is your only threat in-between the two bosses and the assassin is devilishly fast, so don’t underestimate them.

Once you’ve dealt with the assassin, continue towards the Erd Tree and the fog gate where Morgott can be found waiting for you.

NPC summons to defeat Morgott

Before you enter the fog, look on the ground to see a summon sign for Melina — the lady who’s been guiding your quest. Melina can join you as an NPC in this fight and can make for a valuable ally.

If you’ve been following his quest, you can also summon Dung Eater to help you take down Morgott. To do so you’ll need to have completed a few steps:

  • Met Dung Eater’s Red Phantom at the Roundtable Hold and exhausted his dialogue.
  • Retrieved a Seedbed Curse and shown it to him (one can be found within the Capital City ramparts).
  • Released Dung Eater from his cell in the Subterranean Shunning Grounds.

Summon them if you fancy some backup, or don’t if you want to face Morgott alone, you can also use your Spirit Summons in this battle alongside Melina and Dung Eater for extra support.

His sword is deadly and has some new attack combos, but luckily, they follow similar patterns to before. So, dodge his attacks and punish him when he recovers.

Morgott’s new spells kick in at phase 2 of the fight.

Phase 2

The battle will progress to a second phase once Morgott reaches half health. He’ll now start summoning trees that fill the arena with lightning, but this is relatively easy to doge. It does however make it harder to get in close and finish him off.

Ranged players will need to avoid these new attacks and him but try to stay close enough to blast him with magic or arrows. Melee players can take advantage of his summoning animations to get in close and hit him hard.

If you have trouble felling Morgott the Omen King, then summon Melina and your Spirits to help draw his attention on the battlefield. Melina can hold her own against Morgott and some ranged support from a spirit summon will make the three of you a good team.

Remember the Margit’s Shackle item can also be used again here to make your life easier. You may also like to know how to take down Morgott’s twin brother, Mohg The Lord of Blood.
