How to beat the Magma Wyrm boss in Elden Ring

As the name suggests, the Magma Wyrm will regularly come at you with fire-based attacks. So before you even set foot in the boss room, be sure to use items that increase fire resistance, get sorceries or ashes of war that apply cold damage, and even equip yourself with cool damage. gear like the Flamedrake Talisman to further increase fire damage cancellation.

The Flamedrake Talisman is dropped early by Farum Azula’s Beastman in Groveside Cave in Limgrave. Frozen Armament Sorcery can be obtained from a teardrop beetle just behind the Caria Mansion, near the Three Sisters area. The Chilling Mist Ash of War can also be found by killing a beetle in Three Sisters, just south of Renna’s Rise.

Magma Wyrm boss fight

The main source of difficulty for this fight is the fact that the room is so small and the wyrm can cover the floor with magma which remains for some time. You also can’t summon a Spirit Ash in front of the door, so you’ll have to do it from the start of the fight, which gives the wyrm an opening to attack from the start.

Summon your favorite spirit ashes, then step aside immediately as the wyrm will charge at the gate. The spirits will immediately distract him, giving you the chance to get on his tail. The key to this fight is to stay on the Magma Wyrm’s tail as long as possible while dealing as much damage as possible. This is the perfect strategy for melee builds.

As for the remote builds, it might be slightly more difficult due to the confined space. Additionally, the wyrm has a sword that it can, and will, swing to cover more ground. He can also shoot fireballs, of course. Luckily, the sword slashes and fireballs are telegraphed and slow. The real danger for ranged fighters is when the Magma Wyrm rushes at you as magma falls from its mouth, dealing fire damage and leaving a trail of magma on the ground.

This is why it is important to stay close to its flank, hind legs and tail as it cannot turn around too quickly. Sometimes he’ll do a little snap as an AOE attack to deal damage to all sides of his body, but that’s easy to roll and dodge or block as well. Most of the time, if you’re behind it will try to turn slowly to face the right direction. Try spinning with him to avoid trouble.

The good news here is that there didn’t seem to be a second phase – at least not when I beat it – so keep up the pressure while dodging the wyrm’s mouth to win the fight in no time. And as a reward for your troubles, the boss will drop the Moonveil katana, which is one of the best swords in the game for Int-based builds.
