Elden Ring, the winner of Game of the Year in The Game Awards 2022 and also becoming the game with the most GOTY awards passing The Last of Us Part II, is deniably one of the best games ever made. As much as the game is great, it is also challenging and hard, especially for those who haven’t played any Soulsborne games before. Mohg, The Omen, is considered one of the toughest bosses in Elden Ring, and here is how to defeat him in the game.
How to Defeat Mohg, The Omen in Elden Ring
Mohg, The Omen is considered as a Great Enemy in Elden Ring just like Omen, Lord of Blood. This boss is located at the Subterranean Shunning Grounds that is also known as Leyndell Sewers in Leyndell, Royal Capital.
The good thing about this boss is that it’s optional. Although if you want to get the Frenzied Flame Ending, you must defeat this boss. You can summon Spirit Ashes and other players to help you. This boss is weak to Physical damage and will drop 100,000 Ruins upon death along with Bloodflame Talons.
Mohg, The Omen’s attacks are basically the same as Mohg, Lord of Blood. He will use the Blood Claw, which leaves a trail of blood that will cause bleeding and heavy damage if it’s landed. The best counter is to dodge them rather than blocking.
Then there is the Trident charge attack, which is usually after he performs a Blood Claw attack. In here, what you want to do is first dodge sideways to avoid the claw attack and then dodge forward to avoid the trident attack as well. You will also get a small window to land one or two blows as well. Unlike the Lord of Blood, this boss doesn’t have a second phase.
As mentioned above, this boss is weak against Physical Damage. So if you are a melee player, you are in luck. Now that you know what moves Mohg, the Omen uses and how to dodge them, it is time to attack.
Most of the time, try to keep yourself close to this boss. So make sure you dodge sideways or forward to be close to him so you can deal damage.
As for the players who use mostly magic or ranged weapons, it is best to summon a Spirit Ash with high HP. This way the Spirit can keep Mohg, the Omen busy for longer, which gives you the window to deal damage.
Also, make sure you time your attacks with ranged weapons. Usually being trapped in a corner in Mohg, the Omen boss fight means certain death. So make sure you have time to shoot and dodge.
