Abductor Virgins is a Field Boss in Elden Ring. These two deadly constructs are found beneath Volcano Manor. This is an optional boss as players do not have to defeat it to advance in Elden Ring.

Abductor Virgin is the normal enemy version of this boss.

Important note: If you're teleported to the area before the Abductor Virgins, you can fast travel away as soon as you rest at the Subterranean Inquisition Chamber Site of Grace.

 

Elden Ring Abductor Virgin Boss

  • This is an optional boss
  • Closest Site of Grace: Subterranean Inquisition Chamber
  • Multiplayer is allowed for this boss
  • You can summon Spirit Ashes for this boss

Elden Ring Abductor Virgins Location

The Abductor Virgins guard a passageway between Volcano Manor and Altus Plateau. From the Subterranean Inquisition Chamber Site of Grace,  jump along the pillars to the south and enter a cave. At the end of the cave, the floor will give out and drop you to a lower level. Continue southwards and you'll reach the boss door for the Abductor Virgins. [Map Link]

There are two ways to reach the Subterranean Inquisition Chamber Site of Grace:

From Raya Lucaria Academy

From the Schoolhouse Classroom Site of Grace in Raya Lucaria Academy, head west out the door and around the corner. Ride the looping elevator down to the lower floor where you'll see a normal enemy Abductor Virgin. Let it grab you (use a Sacrificial Twig or Twiggy Cracked Tear to avoid losing runes), and you'll be teleported to a special area in Volcano Manor. Hop across the lava flows and travel southeast, dropping down a few ledges along a lava waterfall until you reach the Subterranean Inquisition Chamber Site of Grace.

From Volcano Manor

Head west out the door from the Temple of Eiglay Site of Grace, down the stairs, and along the southern edge of the stone platform until you reach a corpse hanging over the side. Walk to the north side of the platform directly opposite this corpse and carefully drop to the rocky platform far below. From there, hop across the lava flows and travel southeast, dropping down a few ledges along a lava waterfall until you reach the Subterranean Inquisition Chamber Site of Grace.

Abductor Virgin Combat information

Negations (or Absorptions)

The negation numbers are the % of your damage that gets blocked. For example, if a negation is 60, 40% of that damage by that type will go through and 60% will be negated. Bigger number = less damage. A negation of 100 means no damage goes through, and a negation of -100 mean the enemy takes 2x damage from that source. 0 means damage goes pretty much as is.

Resistances

The resistance numbers are the buildup amount to trigger it. For example, if a resistance is 100 you must deal 100 points of the given buildup to trigger it. Note that these go down over time, and increase each time the effect procs.

Elden Ring Abductor Virgins Boss Guide

Abductor Virgins Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Abductor Virgins:

  • Use the Lone Wolf Ashes Ash Summons
  • Use items with Lightning
  • Use Glintstone Shard Great/Swift Spell
  • Bring Rune Arc Item
  • Suggested weapons: Dragon Halberd (STR/DEX)
  • Note: It's possible to cheese this boss by standing on an outcropped ledge where the bosses cannot hit you.

 

Melee Users

Due to there being two Abductor Virgins in the boss arena, the use of spirit ashes/ multiplayer summons is recommended, as splitting them apart makes the fight significantly easier. The wheel abductor should be killed first, due to its higher mobility and stronger move set. Additionally, the scythe abductor is easier to dodge in the 2 vs. 1 that the wheel version, so he should be your priority. Be careful not to get stuck on any things in the arena or give them an opportunity to both pin you at the same time. 

Attacking the abductors from behind is a good strategy as it prevents them from easier opening and grabbing you, which deals huge amounts of damage possibly outright killing the player. However, attacking an open abductor from the front deals additional damage, providing you are willing to take the risk. The idea is to bait one of them at a time towards you focusing on clearing one at a time as well. Most attacks can also be blocked with a shield when you are overwhelmed. If you manage to keep avoiding, reposition behind to get a few combo hits in order to stagger them. 

Magic and Ranged Users

Because of the arena size and the fact that there are double of them, ranged combat is not recommended however should you choose to deal with them in ranged combat, having a spirit summon will help a lot to split up the duo in order to focus on clearing one at a time. Like the melee strategy, ideally clear the wheel variant because of its shorter range and limited moveset. You will need to keep circling around the arena in order to not get caught in a corner and have them both trap you to the edge. Be mindful of the objects that could also get you stuck in this location. 

If using spells, use Glintstone Shard for quick attacks. Keep dodging back and circling around for a better angle and use your ranged attack in between each of his dealt attacks. Dodge away from any dashes. 

It is possible to cheese this boss by standing on a ledge on top of a rock formation. From where you enter the boss arena, go toward the right and there should be a ledge high up that you could jump up to using other rocks. From here, the bosses have difficulty hitting you. The sickle abductor virgin can still hit you with a long throw, but such attack is easily dodged. From the ledge, you can fire away ranged attack such as sorcery or projectiles.

      Was worried about this battle as I struggle against these things, but I actually beat them first try. I just summoned my Mimic and fought the scythe while my Mimic distracted the other. Yes scythe first, dumb decision but I just attacked the one that was closer without too much thinking.
      Interesting thing happened right after I killed the scythe, the wheel grabbed my Mimic and started chewing it. So I'm like "oh goody right now it can't fight back so I get free hits". But no as it turned out they cannot be damaged during the process so I had to wait until it spat my Mimic out.

        Any attack with lightning damage will do poise damage. The same amount regardless of attack, so the faster the better. They can't receive a critical hit, but they'll be stunned for a bit in a weakened state.

          This boss fight seems pretty annoying at first, bit can be made a lot more manageable with spirit ashes if you're already comfortable fighting Abductor Virgins 1v1.

          - Summon any spirit ashes you can right from the get-go, preferably something tanky, and wait until the scythe abductor is distracted. If you haven't been increasing your FP at all, then the Land Squirt ashes will do just fine (make sure to take a moment to heal up after summoning those).

          - Get as much damage done as you can to the wheel abductor, while the scythe abductor is distracted. ONLY ATTACK WHILE IT'S STUCK IN RECOVERY FRAMES. This gives you time to dodge incoming attacks, and deal substantially more damage if their doors are wide open after a failed grab (this is where most of your damage will come from if fighting in melee range). Lightning damage is a huge boon here. I do not advise using guard counters due to their numerous multi-hitting attacks.

          - If the spirit ashes die before you manage to beat the wheel abductor, keep your camera trained on both of them from this point on. The wheel abductor will charge at you at any given chance, which is why we're taking it out first. The scythe abductor, however, will prefer to attack you (quite slowly) from range. At worst you should only have to dodge a scythe throw or two at this point while finishing off the wheel abductor.

          - Once the wheel abductor is down, take as much time as you need to safely beat the scythe one. It attacks quite slowly, has abysmal recovery times between attacks, and has very telegraphed spinning attacks (watch out for returning/spinning scythe blades after they get shot out). As usual, watch out for grabs and punish failed ones.

          Pick your poison between these two or Magma Wyrm Makar for a shortcut to Altus Plateau. I'd recommend the latter instead for an extra dragon heart, unless you're going for full game completion.

            Before Leyndell I recommend using lighting grease (lighting incarnation for faith user) + tanky summon (Engvall or pumpkin head).
            After Leyndall any lighting affinity AoW will be helpful.
            In ng+ summoning upgraded Azula Beastmen ash will melt them quickly.

              I love getting chain cheesed by these bosses.

              First boss charges me with grab attack.

              Dive away,still get hit

              Survive by skin of teeth. Start rolling away and healing asap.

              Boss literally follows it up with another grab.

              Rinse and repeat literally a dozen times in a row until I run out of pots.

              What a great boss fight. Definitely not ****ing scuffed at all

                The fun fact: this is a _short_ way for low levels to Altus Plateau. So you have no Greatshield Soldiers +6 nor Mimic +10. Grab Electrify Armament or grease, buff yourself and smash the wheel one with quick R1s until it staggers. Then finish it. Repeat. If this seems hard, just go and cheese Magma Wyrm Makar.

                  I am on a no ashes run and ended up here like level 50 with weapons that are not super effective against them, problem was killing one of them first as killing the second one would be easy 1 vs 1. Hitting the one with ranged attacks got it to start the attacks where it spins its chains in place and gave me enough time to bait the other one further away and 1 vs 1 against it. Light weight helps at rolling to the side of the one that runs you down with the saws

                    Since the wheels one always rush at you its pretty easy to separate them by running into the corridor where the wheels spawn and beat the wheels one there, took a while for the scythe one to get you, just run out, rince and repeat.

                      These guys are weak to lightning, and in the boss fight, they are in pool of water, DECREASING their lightning resistance even more. Lightning spells also SPREAD when in water, so if they are next to each other, a lightning spell CAN HIT BOTH.

                        Level 30, +2 Weapons, +6 Greatshield Soldiers and used a Pulley Crossbow with Lightning Bolts and the Abductor Virgins we're nearly stunlocked the whole time. Greatshield bois distracted 1 while I zapped the first. It literally only got one attack off before death, then the second was even easier.

                            For those wondering, you have to die to its grab attack. The "YOU DIED" message will pop up and you'll be revived at the new location.
                            P.S. You will still drop your runes.

                              RNG fight. It doesn't matter how skilled or OP you are, these duo will ruin your day. Under normal circumstances in a very normal area, I would say it's a piece of cake fight, but in that cave, the way they spam charge attacks and 360 long combos at the same time when you are cornered will definitely destroy you. There is no chance surviving those attacks If you are underleveled or not overleveled.

                              For those who don't want to cheese them, deal high damage, kill one as quick as you can, then it's a guaranteed win. Leave the sickle one for the last. You will make it. Don't be ashamed to summon spirits, this isn't your typical boss fight. This fight is nowhere close to being a honorable duel. It is dumb and lazy design. This is the proof of they are running out of ideas and don't know what to do.

                                Banished Knight Engvall was an MVP for a low levelled character. He's tanky, allowing him to last a while against the sickle while the player tackles the saw.

                                • so...i think i screwed up the experience, lvl 120, +10 Knight Oleg and twin blade +19, i thought this was rykard entrance and wanted to do the asassination quest first (i was lvl 90 by that time anyways), yes i didnt read that part so when i did it, wondered what boss was at subterran inquisition... maybe im mistaken but i feel that that mf virgin at the lava grounds close to prision town church are harder than this duo

                                    Lightning Armament & Dual +6 Cleanrot Knight's Swords absolutely decimated them at level 43. I'd tried them multiple times before unlocking that incantation and was struggling to even damage them.

                                              Easy way to kill them no matter the build right here

                                              First time around with them was with my sorcerer. It was a pain, and even if I used the trick to jump on the rocks of the arena, they killed me a few times.
                                              But 5 minutes ago, I cracked it. I ran it on my blood build, but that's not the point of the cracking. The point is to get them occupied enough so that no matter the build, you wack at them good (btw, weak to lightning, so get the right ash and you can do it).
                                              The key is : Greatshield soldiers ashes.
                                              5 skeletons with greatshields. They will have a hard time killing them usually, and you can then use the Thedemodcracy rule of big bosses. Stick to that booty.

                                                • All right y'all, hear me out for this fight: Land Squirt Ashes. I've been leveling these as a joke on my character and had them at +4 for this fight and they were essential. They spawn in a cluster in one area. You just run behind them. They will aggro one or both of the virgins so you can kill the other, and they will happily tank the other one the entire time due to their high health. They did not die and got the second virgin down to like 25% on their own. They are useless 99% of the time but when it comes to this fight, Land Squirts are for the win.

I was killed instantly and my runes were irretrievable. I can't tell if this was a glitch or intentional punishment for helping somebody with this particular boss battle, but it was pretty funny. I'm assuming it was a glitch, like it was unable to respawn me in the narrow tunnel before the fog door.

                                                                    this doesn't make any sense. one says to prioritize the wheel one bc it's more dangerous, the other says prioritize the scythe one because it's easier to dodge.

                                                                    this website really sucks

Turn right and look down the lava waterfall. At the right mountain wall, theres a small ledge with a zombie. The jump is too far but there's a second ledge just a bit below. Do a sprinting jump and you can land on it, breaking your kneecaps in the process :) However, you can now reach prision town and backtrail up into volcanor manor without having to fight the 2 abductor virgins. I did the jump on the 2nd try.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        They live up to their names because the Tarnished is maidenless.

Use one another to block each other charge.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

When I quit out and started it up again, it's the same deal, so now my game is bugged out and I have to start over. The worst part is, I went here on a lark after beating Ranni's questline and getting most of the way through Leyendell, so I'm relatively close to the end (as far as I can tell). Simply amazing.

                                                                                  • I noticed they are weak to lightning because of Stormhawk Axe, which is located bellow the divine bridge right next to 2 Iron Virgins

                                                                                    I actually grabbed the axe used it agaisnt them, the weapon art and the lightning buff shredded them, not even upgraded. Great game design as always :)

                                                                                      • Anonymous

That deals massive damage. If you are willing to take a risk it can even stagger. With a bit of luck the wheel abductor dies quickly and you are left with plenty of flask charges for the other one. Once it's a 1v1 it's a piece of cake. Again, dodge the grab and swing at the open belly. Ended up beating them without summons or spirits.

Remember you were in an area (the academy) that gives you ALL the spell you might need for this fight. I returned there with 18 INT and a Demi-Human Queen's Staff +16 and the Great Glintstone Shard deals around 10% damage out of their HP pool and around 24% if you hit right into their open belly. With 24 Mind, it only took me 1 FP charge of my Cerulean Tears to fill my FP back up to finish the 2nd one once the first one was down.

Work your way through until you found a subterranean Inquistion Chamber. From there jump facing east running over 2 poles floating in lava.

Then I remembered the two knights fighting the Sickle Virgin at the plateau. Turns out it's easy as hell if you use the Knights Summon. That's a hell of a way to sneak in a hint at how to beat the boss. I love FromSoft.

Hoarfrost spam worked wondered; I summoned two Marionette Soldiers and then prayed they would be distracted enough. Take out the wheel one first, he's much more dangerous. A good shield can block most of their attacks, just be ready to roll-dodge if they go for the grab after.

                                                                                                                  This was really poor design, IMO. I love the Soulsborne series but the entire sequence leading here (grabbed by a random mob, transported here, terrible lava platforming, and then a double boss in a circle arena with basically no cover) is truly godawful. I have no doubt I wouldn't have been able to clear it if I hadn't been playing Souls games since 2009.

I powerstanced two rapiers and went to town on the ranged ones ass. They get staggered and you get time to damage the insides real good. Anyway, fck these iron maidens!
