Ancient Dragon Lansseax is a Boss in Elden Ring. This Elden Ring Ancient Dragon Lansseax Guide features boss locations, tips, strategies and videos on how to defeat Lansseax easily, as well as boss stats and lore for Lansseax.

Ancient Dragon Lansseax is a large white dragon with 4 wings and is first found close to the Abandoned Coffin Site of Grace in Altus Plateau. She is the sister of Lichdragon Fortissax and had connections to the people of the Golden Order as her brother did. Of all the dragons found in the Lands Between, she seemed to have to closest relationships with the humans, going so far as to transform into a human to communicate with the knights of the ancient dragon cult, of whom she heavily favored Vyke the Dragonspear

This is an optional boss, as players don't need to defeat it in order to advance in Elden Ring. However, doing so yields useful Items and Runes. As with most other dragon fights, it is recommended to ride Torrent during this boss fight to be able to quickly avoid her hard hitting AOEs. Consider consuming and equipping Consumables and Equipment that boost your Lightning resistance as her most powerful attacks deal this type of damage. She drops Lansseax's Glaive when defeated.

Bosses are unique and challenging Enemies that can be encountered all over the Lands Between. Great Enemy bosses can drop unique Spirit AshesWeaponsSpells, and other various Items.

 

 Lansseax was the sister of Fortissax. It is said that she took the form of a human to commune with the knights as a priestess of the ancient dragon cult.

Of all the knights, Vyke the Dragonspear was the one Lansseax loved the most.

Absorptions:

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

Resistances:

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

Ancient Dragon Lansseax Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Ancient Dragon Lansseax:

 

Melee Users

When facing this boss, do not take the lightning attacks lightly since they have the ability to one shot players. While in the air, you may see a resemblance of a weapon made with lightning. At this point you need to back up to prepare to jump over this weapon attack or dodge. Ideally stay on higher or lower ground so you can go over or under some its attacks. For greater speed, you may want to consider seeing this fight through while on Torrent so you can be quick in disengaging when needed. This way you can wait for openings and also quickly run in with Torrent for a quick hit and escape if needed. This will lessen the chances of getting stepped on than if you were to run in on foot. While on Torrent, it will also give you enough time to run away from any anticipated fire attacks or landing spaces. 

For attacks, Torrent will also be beneficial for reaching her head for attacks with his higher jumps, especially on higher ground. The main melee strategy is to keep moving and a combination of looking for openings to run in for a few hits and then running back out to repeat the process. 

Magic and Ranged Users

With ranged attack, and a big field going against a dragon with large range, it is still recommended to use Torrent for this fight to quickly cover distances either for escaping an attack or running in for a better angle.  Lots of the dragon's attack cover a large AoE. You will need to continuously disengage and move around to stay out of her line of sight and give yourself a better position to deal attacks. For range, it is a combination or circling back, stopping to get an angle and dealing an attack while anticipating her next attack and being prepared to back away. This may make it more difficult to aim with smaller ranged spells and attacks so you may still need to use Torrent to approach and get better angle to hit. 

If you keep moving, there is a chance she will constantly be trying to turn towards you and repositioning rather than dealing attacks, which will give you more opportunities to keep attacking while moving until she is eventually cleared.

 

Ancient Dragon Lansseax Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Lansseax’s Glaive (slam)

 Lansseax stands onto her hind legs and raises her left arm. A massive bolt of red lightning appears in her grip. Lansseax then slams the lightning across the ground from her right to her left, releasing waves of lightning forwards across the ground. This attack will knock you to the ground if the initial lightning bolt connects.

Note that both the slamming and sweeping glaive share the same windup animation; which attack is used is determined by how far the player is from Lansseax. The slam is used while relatively far away, while the sweep occurs if the player is too close.

 Dodge forwards through the attack and hit Lansseax's momentarily vulnerable head.

Lansseax’s Glaive (sweep)

Lansseax stands onto her hind legs and raises her left arm. A massive bolt of red lightning appears in her grip. Lansseax then sweeps the lightning across the ground from her right to her left, releasing waves of lightning forwards across the ground and jumping backwards as she does. This attack will knock you to the ground if the initial lightning bolt connects.

Note that both the slamming and sweeping glaive share the same windup animation; which attack is used is determined by how far the player is from Lansseax. The slam is used while relatively far away, while the sweep occurs if the player is too close.

 Prevent this attack from occurring by moving backwards in order to trigger the slam instead. If she does use it, roll forwards through the sweep and pursue Lansseax.
Aerial Glaive 

This attack is only used by the miniboss version in Crumbling Farum Azula.

The dragon leaps backwards into the air and raises their left hand. A massive bolt of red lightning appears in their grip. The dragon then sweeps the bolt vertically downwards beneath and in front of themself before landing.

Run diagonally forwards towards the dragon and attack their head when they land.
Ancient Dragons’ Lightning Strike

This attack is only used once by Lansseax, immediately after landing to begin the battle. The miniboss version in Crumbling Farum Azula will use it multiple times.

Lansseax raises her head and wings and roars loudly. Many glowing red patches appear on the ground around her, and a few seconds later red lightning strikes them. 

Spring forwards towards Lansseax's right claw (your left). Stand in front and slightly towards the midline of her body, and wait until she begins lowering her head. Then, begin a charged heavy attack. This will hit her snout as she lowers it, dealing bonus damage.
Claw Combo

Lansseax raises her left arm and slams it down in front of her at an angle, such that her hand passes below her chin. She then pulls it back in a swipe from her right to her left. Both attacks cause small lightning explosions along the path of the attack a few moments after it completes. This combo will knock you to the ground if it connects with one of the physical attacks. 

Follows: none

Followed by: right swipe, rearing firebreath

Roll backwards and immediately roll again to dodge the first swipe and its lightning trail, then repeat the process for the second hit. Roll early through the attacks to have time to dodge the trail, and note that if you are hit by the first swipe's trail, the second swipe's trail cannot be avoided with a roll because you will be forced to roll late on the second swing, thereby preventing you from recovering fast enough to roll again.
Right Swipe

Lansseax raises her right arm and swipes it from her right to her left, causing a trail of lightning explosions in the path of the swing moments later. This attack will knock the player to the ground if the physical portion connects.

Follows: claw combo, single bite, double bite (phase 2 only), vertical slam (phase 2 only)

Followed by: vertical slam, rearing firebreath, repositioning hop, reverse right swipe (only if standing behind Lansseax and to her right)

Dodge backwards once to dodge the swipe and then immediately do so again to dodge the trail. Prepare for the potential followup.
Vertical Slam

Lansseax rises to her hindlegs and raises her left arm above her head. After a brief delay, she falls forwards and slams her right hand into the ground, releasing a small electrical burst around the point of impact. This attack will knock the player to the ground if it connects.

Follows: right swipe

Followed by: right swipe (phase 2 only), rearing firebreath (phase 2 only), double bite (phase 2 only)

Move backwards and roll once to the left. If performed correctly, you will roll to the right side of her head (left from your perspective) and be out of range of the electrical burst. Then, attack her head, remembering that this attack can be comboed into further moves in phase 2.
Double Bite Lansseax rises to her hindlegs, arches her neck to her right and opens her mouth, then bites forward. She then repeats the process with her neck arched to her left.

Follows: vertical slam (phase 2 only)

Followed by: rearing firebreath, right swipe (phase 2 only)
Sprint out of range of the first bite, and charge a heavy attack as Lansseax bites a second time. As she finishes, release the heavy attack and hit her head. This is a safe punish in both phase 1 and phase 2 if performed properly.
Single Bite Lansseax arches her neck to her left, then bites forwards without coming off the ground.

Follows: none

Followed by: right swipe, rearing firebreath
Roll backwards and right through the bite, and prepare for the followup. Additionally, be aware of the possibility of this move; even though Lansseax does not chain into it, it has fast startup and recovery that can lead to it being used surprisingly quickly after another attack or a non-chained followup being performed earlier than expected.
Rearing Firebreath Lansseax rises onto her hind legs and arches her neck before spewing fire forwards. She then sweeps the fire under her body from her right to her left, and finishes the attack by spewing fire forwards again. This attack will knock you to the ground if it connects.

Follows: single bite, double bite, right swipe, claw combo, vertical slam (phase 2 only)

Followed by: none
Sprinting forwards or riding Torrent will allow you to reach Lansseax's tail. Stand far back along it, and attack it as she breathes fire, using thrusting attacks if available to take advantage of the counter state. If you have access to long ranged attacks, you can move backwards out of reach and attack.

Otherwise, sprint backwards and to your left. As Lansseax finishes sweeping the fire from her right to her left and transitions into the forwards gout, sprint forwards towards her head and attack it once as it lands. The timing and positioning are very tight; you may simply wish to wait the attack out, especially if there is any uneven terrain in the area.
Forward Firebreath  This attack is often used when the player is far from Lansseax and in front of her. Lansseax arches her neck slightly, then exhales a long stream of fire forwards, sweeping slightly from her right to her left. This attack will knock you to the ground if it connects.  Summon Torrent and ride diagonally forwards to your right. Note that unlike the similar looking attack from flying-dragon model enemies, this attack does not track the player.
Aerial Firebreath This is often used when the player is standing under Lansseax's chest. She crouches down, then launches backwards into flight as flame particles appear in her mouth. Lansseax then spits a gout of fire onto the ground at the player and flaps backwards to land. Run backwards out of range of the fire, then sprint forwards either on foot or Torrent to close the gap once more.
Lightning Slam This attack is often used when the player is standing under Lansseax. Lansseax rises to her hind legs and raises both arms. After a brief delay, she slams both claws into the ground under her chest, creating a large shockwave that will knock you to the ground if it connects. Waves of lightning propagate outwards from the point of impact as the shockwave dissipates. Move out from under Lansseax, then sprint back in after she slams, rolling through the waves of lightning as you do. Lansseax is vulnerable for a significant period following this attack.
Reverse Right Swipe This attack is only used if the player is standing at Lansseax's right side after she has used a right swipe. Lansseax pulls her hand backwards from her left to her right in a swipe, leaving a trail of lightning which erupts moments later as she does. This attack will knock you to the ground if it connects. Avoid standing at Lansseax's right side. If unavoidable, roll through the attack and then roll again to avoid the lightning, or sprint/roll forwards under Lansseax and out of reach.
Repositioning Claw Swipe This attack is commonly used when the player is standing at Lansseax's left side. Lansseax raises her left arm and swipes from her right to her left, turning to face the player in the process. This attack will knock the player to the ground if it connects, and leaves a trail of lightning that activates after a momentary delay. Sprint backwards and out of range of the attack, or roll early through the claw swipe in order to have enough time to roll again immediately after and dodge the lightning.
Wing Beating This attack is often used when the player is under Lansseax. Lansseax rises onto her hind legs and flaps her wings three times, staggering players caught under her. She then flaps a fourth time, knocking players to the ground if they do not dodge. This attack does not deal damage, only stuns. Move out from under Lansseax, and sprint in to attack once she flaps for a fourth time. Alternatively, dodge through each flap and attack after she completes the fourth.
Tail Swipe This attack is often used when the player is behind Lansseax. Lansseax raises her tail and bends it to her left, then swings herself counterclockwise  around to face the player, sweeping the area behind and to the side as she does. This attack will knock you to the ground if it connects. Dodge through the attack, or sprint out of range. Alternatively, jump over the attack with Torrent.
Divebomb

This attack is only used by the miniboss version found in Crumbling Faram Azula.

The dragon launches itself backwards into the air, hangs there for a moment, and then dives towards the player. This attack will knock you to the ground if it connects.

Dodge forwards through the dive and attack the dragon's hind legs.
Repositioning Hop

Lansseax leaps forwards and glides a short distance, turning around as she lands. If she happens to land on a player, it will deal heavy damage and knock them to the ground.

Follows: any attack which a rearing firebreath could

Followed by: none

Turn around and pursue Lansseax. If it looks like Lansseax might land on you, get out of the way.

Ancient Dragon Lansseax Lore, Notes & Other Trivia

  • Lansseax is the sister of Fortissax. She had posed as a human priestess for the Dragon Cult, and had developed an interest for Roundtable Knight Vyke especially.
  • Lansseax can be struck by the lightning near the Fulgurblooms on the plateau, taking 20 damage in the process.
  • Lansseax's moveset is limited compared to the miniboss variant found in Crumbling Farum Azula; she uses neither the divebomb nor the aerial lightning glaive, and will only use her Lightning Strike attack once as a scripted opener instead of throughout the battle.
  • Gransax, the dead dragon inside the Capital, is almost 9x larger than Lansseax, making it the largest dragon in FromSoft history.

    • Honestly, I'm still trying to understand why she's attacking us to begin with... the implication that she could speak with humans is disappointing enough (since she doesn't say anything), but the inexplicable, mindless ambushes are worse. Not even gonna tell me to turn back before scorching me to a crisp?

        One of the coolest bosses so far for me and probably my favorite dragon of the game. I personally had much better luck on foot for the fight. Just stay underneath it as much as possible. The lightning sword attack always one shot me so that was the main issue I faced.

          was this boss super easy for anyone else? she was very passive and didn't do much at all, i think it mustve been a bug? she barely tried to hit me when i was around her feet and just attacked forward

            Ancient Camera Lansseax. I like how the boss is deliberately designed to walk forward so that it disorients the badly implemented camera and hits you with its dumb delayed lightning attacks.

              We are truly a solo hero, in ds 3 we got firekeeper, in bb we got a doll, even vyke got this girl on his back, but us, nothing. If you think of Ranni, Ranni is our master, not partner like firekeeper or a doll. Melina?
              We still dont even know who she truly is, and she is never with us, she just come to talk from time to time

                Call me sentimental, but I wish we could have chose not to fight her and have her be an NPC. Could have also gotten more Dragon Cult and Vyke lore.

                  • I realized my second character was basically just vyke, it's a faith strength build with a big focus on frenzy and I'm gonna do the frenzy ending, I've even got his helmet on, now I just need to find a dragon to bang and it'll be perfect

                      Demi Human ashes at night. Huge help. They did their normal run around and attack everything in sight, the benefit was they took care of the sheep in a few seconds and started distracting the dragon. Allowing me to concentrate on just what I needed to, the dragon.

                            awful fight, another artificially difficult boss only because of the **** camera and is too high on its feet to fit in the screen, meaning the only reliable target to attack with a melee weapon is the feet, but it also moves a lot so it's not that easy
                            now imagine the pain trying to fight it with a short range melee weapon such as ceastus...
                            also **** the goats

                              I have one major gripe with both this gal, and Fortissax. They are constantly walking towards you, making the camera unbelievably hard to manage while dodging their melee aoe attacks. And if you decide to ankle bite, Lansseax still has some really dangerous attacks that can hit you, and Fortissax completely nullifies the strategy with his targeted lightning. The boss design is so close to being good, and I really wanna love these bosses, but I just can't.

                                I fought her couple of times and she never did that lighting catch and slam from the trailer (similar attack that fortissax does) Is that attack still in the game? or did I just get unlucky? Also in the trailer it looks like the player fights her in Caelid.

                                  Honestly, I'd like if she had her own quest. She was in love with Vyke, and Vyke ended up being corrupted by Frenzy, so maybe something stemming from that? She's one of the only "divine" beings that it would be plausible to have peaceful interactions with, plus it would be interesting to have more NPC provided insight on the Dragon Cult. It's also very engaging(?) when we get to fight a boss who we had previous friendly interactions with, like with Gideon, or Maliketh.

                                      So here's a weird detail: the crest on her head (or rather all the ancient dragons' heads) appear to be a set of eight stony fingers. Probably not functional fingers, but they definitely have knuckles.

                                        If any faith players are struggling, I just absolutely wrecked it by simply running around it and spamming Pest Threads while locked on to its head.

                                        I was really struggling to deal good damage to it before this, but it's an incredibly easy win as long as you stay close enough for Pest Threads to keep hitting. I never even took damage.

                                              Tired of camera angles and getting one shot, i found the easiest method :
                                              put strongest armor (goat guy set), got on horse so weight has no importance, equipped Rotten breath (15 faith, 12 arcane) and just circled around the dragon while speeding to avoid some larger attacks. I killed it without a hassle and no sense of danger, watching its hit point go lower and lower for three minutes until it reached zero. No satisfaction at all, but I didnt want to fight the camera any more. /Reyda

                                                    Can confirm that going beyond her aggro range once the fight has started will cause damage over time. Only occurs once the health bar disappears, but does enough damage over time for it to be a viable strat.

                                                      It’s interesting that she used to have an encounter in Calid based off the initial reveal trailer, I wonder why they removed that encounter?

                                                        This boss is bugged if you enter combat and leave combat repeatedly it looses about 5-10% health every time and no it's not the lightning hitting her in the area I think it's just scripted to loose health when u enter combat after 4 or 5 resets she was at 50% health and I done 0 damage

                                                          That lightning bolt sword has way more reach than you think it does. Best to assume it will hit you at any distance...

                                                            The fact she is weak to thrust is a cruel joke. Jumping beneath her and trying to poke with a spear or bloody helice is an absolute nightmare. How come fortissax was so easy compared to her?

                                                            • For melee users:
                                                              try attacking its hindlegs and being underneath him, im a STR/FAI greatsword build (NOT CS). i cheesed him while doing that.
                                                              Reason being is that most of his attacks can't hit you while ur under him next to his hindlegs. (atleast when i fought him)
                                                              NOTE: sometimes they may hit, i only fought him once and beat him doing this.
                                                              i reccommend:
                                                              - have enough points in vigor to not get one shotted by every attack
                                                              - do not rush him immediatly when he lands, avoid the AOE and stay calm
                                                              - when he stands up to do the sweep attack, back off. (and heal if need be (yes, u can heal up if ur fast enough and dont panic))
                                                              - if ur hit at all while under him, do a dodge toward his tail and heal.

                                                              i died the first time i did it this way, but the second time i had a very easy time.

                                                              it will require some dodging but its alot more effective for me personally

If you are up the slope, you can inch back until boss bar disappears, inch forward so it pops back up, and its health will be less. You can do it continuously until shes dead. Just happened to me on accident. Not sure how hard it is to replicate. Reply if you get it to work.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      I never survive a direct hit from this one; only the lightning wave. At least she's equally frail, and much, MUCH slower than every other dragon out there. She only got like, 4 attacks in (granted, they're all wide as heck and would probably all 1-shot me), before I killed her, and my damage has been consistently on the low side throughout the game due to stats spreading.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

Later, was not night time in my game, She appears near the Ramparthside grace site. There she kept taking damage from the lightning in the field. Close to half her remaining HP melted away while i was fighting her.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • I love the reward but I hate this boss so damn much. It deals so massive damage, it's not fun to me. I can rot it and then die to it's bs lightning strikes from everywhere. Idk man. I don't feel like she's a good fight. Jumping all across the field like crazy, always Managers to land in front of me to obliterate me with her sweep attacks.. I don't like it.

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

However - when you're coming up from the tunnel route to Altus, you need to be more or less following the road path heading up the slope. The spawn doesn't seem to trigger if you first go off to the right, then approach the wolves on the road from there.

Actively managing the camera to you can see the windup enemy attacks while landing your own is the challenge in this fight more than the boss's actual mechanics.

This could maybe be translated further as “the Polearm-wielding”, since he does drop his glaive as an incantation.
