In this guide, we’ll show you how to beat the Grave Warden in Elden Ring.
Grave Warden’s Location
The Grave Warden in Elden Ring is positioned deep in the Murkwater Catacombs. This dungeon is located in the northeast part of Limgrave. Players can find it by jumping down into Agheel Lake.
After facing a herd of skeletons, you’ll encounter an area filled with slugs.
You can use fire to defeat them or walk past them until you come across a door that leads to Murkwater Catacombs.
Upon entering the Catacombs, you’ll see a Site of Lost Grace similar to other Elden Ring Dungeons. This ensures that you don’t need to travel long-distance if you happen to die during the encounter.
In the Catacombs, you should head forward into a small corridor that leads to another room.
This room is also occupied by three Goblins that protect the Lever. Once you have defeated them, interact with the Lever to open the Grave Warden’s room.
Grave Warden Encounter
In general, the Grave Warden Duelist is an easy boss to fight in Elden Ring. While he’ll definitely intimidate you in your first encounter, his combat pattern is easy to understand and learn. Once he starts attacking, he will deliver up to five swings using his hammers.
When fighting the Grave Warden, you should keep in mind that he’ll stop swinging his hammer if you get too far from him.
This will also make the Warden spin his hammer and toss it across the room in your direction.
In this case, what you need to do is stay next to the Grave Warden while he is performing his attacks. Try to roll around him while avoiding his attacks and attempting to reach his back.
While the Grave Warden won’t stop attacking as you roll around him, keep in mind that his attack will always end with a strong plunge attack that will prevent him from moving for a second.
During this instance, try to deliver a backstab if you managed to get to his back.
After performing a backstab, the Warden should fall down from the critical hit. This starts an animation of him getting up, which makes him immune to all kinds of damage. Use this instance to charge your strong attack.
Once the Warden is up, deliver another massive strike to him.
