How to Beat Margit the Fell Omen in Elden Ring

Want to know how you can beat Margit in Elden Ring?

Elden Ring has tons of difficult boss fights and the first one you’ll likely encounter is Margit the Fell Omen. This encounter is a classic FromSoftware boss fight, which is extremely difficult but totally beatable.

Unless you’re a seasoned Soulsborne player, the malformed and sneering appearance of Margit will likely intimidate you. 

Well, you should be. 

Margit the Fell Omen is the first boss you’ll need to fight to advance Elden Ring’s main storyline. This boss blocks the road to Stormveil Castle and the only way through is to slay the horrible monster in front of you. 

Given that you’ll encounter Margit in the early stages of the game, fighting him is quite difficult since you haven’t upgraded your gear yet and your stats are pretty much low. 

However, this doesn’t mean that this boss is impossible to defeat. 

In this guide, we will show you everything you need to know to beat Margit the Fell Omen in Elden Ring. 

Let’s begin!

Preparing for Margit

Margit’s placement at the start of Elden Ring puts you in an awkward position. Since your gear options are limited, you have to maximize everything you can get to have the best shot against Margit the Fell Omen. 

Beast Crest Shield

The Beast Crest Heater shield is the best armor to get in the early game. This blocks physical damage coming from Margit. The damage negation of the Beast Crest Heater means that if Margit swings his weapon, you won’t take physical damage when you block it. 

However, you also need to have enough stamina and poise to absorb the blow. 

For example, if Margit’s attack deals 1000 physical damage and you blocked it with the Beast Crest Heater, you won’t take any damage. However, if you use a shield with 50% damage negation, you’ll receive 500 physical damage. 

Since Margit has an incredibly powerful attack, having a shield that can absorb all of its damage is a must. 

Keep Your HP Full

As a general rule, if your health is less than 50%, take a drink from your Flask of Crimson Tears to regenerate your HP. When fighting against Margit, assume that every direct hit from him takes half of your health. 

It’s better to consume all of your healing drinks than to repeat the entire encounter, especially if you die when Margit only has a little HP left. 

Margit Encounter Tactics

When fighting against Margit, it’s nice to have someone else attacking and doing damage. However, the primary purpose of having another character fight Margit is to distract him. This means that if Margit is attacking someone else, he’s not focused on you. 

This should give you the chance to deal some damage.

At the start of the fight, summon a Sorcerer Rogier near the entrance. You can also use Spirit Jellyfish ashes to distract Margit and build up poison. 

If the options above are not available, go to the Stormhill Shack and talk to the woman sitting there. After a few prompts, she’ll give you the items above. You can equip the items in your pouch just like flasks. 

To sum things up, summon a Sorcerer Rogier,  walk through the mist to start the fight, and use Spirit Jellyfish Ashes. 

Now, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to launch your attacks. 

Chain Your Attacks

Elden Ring has an invisible super armor break meter that builds up when you hit an enemy. When this invisible meter fills, the boss or enemy will fall to their knees, and you’ll have the opportunity to attack and even perform critical hits. 

Wielding your weapon with two hands causes more damage and builds up the super armor break meter faster. 

However, this puts you at risk as you won’t be holding any shield while swinging your weapon with two hands. 

Blood Loss Buildup

Some weapons in Elden Ring cause blood loss buildup. Every time you hit an enemy with a weapon with this effect, the invisible meter for blood loss fills. When it gets full, the blood loss debuff will take effect. 

This causes enemies to lose a significant chunk of their HP, similar to a free backstab. 

However, these types of weapons don’t do much damage and you pretty much have to rely on blood loss to take effect before you can do some serious damage. 

At the end of the day, these tips are simply here to guide you through the entire encounter. The decision whether to use them or not still depend on you and how you want to play the entire boss fight.
