Astel, Naturalborn of the Void is a Boss in Elden Ring. This Elden Ring Astel, Naturalborn if the Void Guide features boss locations, tips, strategies and videos on how to defeat Astel easily, as well as boss stats and lore for Astel.

Astel, Naturalborn of the Void is a strange alien lifeform comprised of many-colored star debris which landed in the Lands Between long ago, and is found in Grand CloisterLake of Rot. Astel destroyed one of the Eternal Cities and wiped out their sky. Seeing as how both the Eternal Cities of Nokron and Nokstella still have their starry night sky, it is possible that the Nameless Eternal City that the Site of Grace in Deeproot Depths was named after was Astel's unfortunate target.

This boss is optional, as players don't need to defeat it in order to advance in Elden Ring, but it is a required boss for reaching the Moonlight Altar and completing Ranni the Witch's questline. It drops the Remembrance of the Naturalborn when defeated.

Bosses are unique and challenging Enemies that can be encountered all over the Lands Between. Legend bosses drop their own unique Remembrance capable of being transformed into powerful Weapons, Spells, Ashes of War, and Talismans for the player.

 

 A malformed star born in the flightless void far away. Once destroyed an Eternal City and took away their sky.
A falling star of ill omen.

Absorptions/Defenses

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 are 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. Poise regenerates after 6 seconds without any hits or upon a poise break.

Astel, Naturalborn of the Void Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Astel, Naturalborn of the Void:

  • Use the Mimic Tear Ashes or any other tanky summon that can draw the boss's attention away.
  • When playing a more tanky or physical build and not wanting to change, Latenna's spirit ash is fairly cheap and will deal significant damage to Astel, as long as you keep its attention away. Ancestral Follower can also work well.
  • The crystalline "body" has greater defense than the hand-like limbs or head, but can be attacked while staying out of range of most attacks barring shockwaves.
  • Once it teleports, face your camera upwards to see if it's preparing to grab you.

 

Melee Users

At the start of the encounter it will likely fire a laser that can deal massive damage to you on the spot. Dodge through it and, if you want it, summon your Spirit Ashes. Dodge through its attacks up until you reach it and, by then, stay on its head while dodging every attack. It has a lot of AOE skills that might one or two-shot you so stay on a safe side and slowly chip away its HP. If you summoned your Spirit Ashes - they'll often distract him which gives you plenty of opportunities to get some attacks in.

Don't get hit by its bite attack. It'll be indicated by the mandibles glowing purple on its face. It is easily dodged but can deal massive damage if it connects.

Around 50%, Astel will teleport away and cast Meteorite of Astel on you. Dodge through them or run towards the sides, as even one of them can break through your guard and deal heavy damage. The fight itself doesn't change as its HP goes down, so if you're doing everything right, you'll have it downed in no time.

Magic and Ranged Users

Longbow users may use Poison or Rot Arrows to trigger either status effects. You must hit Astel several times in a row to proc the status ailment, missing too many shots will allow its poison or rot buildup to go down faster than you can build it. If you have enough HP to tank a few hits, the Pulley Crossbow can apply status effects very fast. The status effects can be reapplied again once they have worn off. The Ash of War: Enchanted Shot is highly recommended while using these arrows to ensure you are not missing and wasting them. While it is poisoned or rotting, you may continue to do ranged battle with regular arrows. You can also conserve FP by switching down to R1 attacks. With the Arrow's Reach Talisman, you can ensure these R1 attacks will land without damage loss due to distance, giving an acceptable chip damage if your Longbow is at least +12.

For magic users, A high-intelligence build can do a lot of damage in a short period of time. Using Comet Azur with a Flask of Wondrous Physick (Cerulean Hidden Tear + Magic-Shrouding Cracked Tear) after dodging the initial attacks is a good combination to try. After this attack, try staying at medium-long range where a sorcery like Great Glintstone Shard can hit him. If you use these types of spells, you can attack quick enough to dodge many of its attacks while still doing fairly decent damage. For lower intelligence casters, Night Maiden's Mist isn't a terrible option, although it is decently fast and can move out of it from time to time. Pairing the mist with glintstone pebble can make efficient use of your FP without needing much investment. Additionally charged Shard Spiral can deal a ton of damage provided you stay close to the boss (make sure to equip Godfrey Icon if using this strategy for 15% extra damage). 

 

Astel, Naturalborn of the Void Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Cosmic Burst Astel raises its head high, summoning a purple orb in its jaws. After a delay, it fires an extremely fast beam that deals high damage and heavy knockback. Wait for a slight second before dodging to the side. Blocking can also help.
Waves of Darkness Astel creates three orbs on its arms, before slamming it down and create shockwave that pulses three times, with a higher radius each time Run away from it or block to reduce damage. The "pulse" is too quick for Medium and Heavy builds to dodge.
Large Wave of Darkness Astel rises up high, summoning orbs on all six of its arms before slamming down, creating a larger wave that increases four times before dissipating. This attack has a very high windup. Once you see Astel fly upwards, run away immediately. 
Tail Slam Astel raises its tail high and slams it down before repeating once again. This is usually down at medium to long range. Dodge left or right. Getting close enough will avoid this attack completely.
Tail Sting Astel positions its tail above its head, indicated by the tail twitching slightly before striking the ground three times. Highly telegraphed, you can rush forward and hit its head while it is busy doing this move.
Nebula Swipes its hands in varying patterns, leaving behind an exploding cloud of stars. The entire arm of Astel becomes a hitbox, making this move hard to avoid. Dodge to the sides. Dodging backwards or forwards is ill advised.
Bite Astel clicks its mandibles and chomps down its target once or twice. Usually used when a target is close in front of it. This attack comes out very quickly and can deal high damage. Dodge toward its head to avoid it.
Teleport Astel raises its hands, forming an orb around itself. After a delay, Astel will teleport either above the player or far away. The teleport itself will also do damage. Run away from the teleportation.
In case of attack from above - watch your surroundings and prepare to dodge.
Meteorite of Astel At around half health, it will use a Teleport to get away. After that it’ll start casting a large shower of meteors to bombard the area in front of it. Run to the sides or attempt to dodge through it. The meteors can be quite inaccurate, but they hit very hard when they connect.
Reverse Gravity Astel begins charging up, and after a few seconds it will lift the player into the air before slamming them down violently. The first part of the attack is what “grabs” the player, but the second part can also damage as well. Once you see a pink glow around the boss, prepare to run away. If you time it good enough, you can dodge through the first part of the attack and get some free hits.
The “grab” portion of this attack only affects “NPCs” like the player, any summoned allies, Mimic Tear, and the Puppets (excluding Nightmaiden and Swordstress)
Diving Grab After a Teleport, Astel positions itself directly above its target and grabs them, shoving them into their massive pincers and often killing them instantly. Tilt your camera up to see if Astel teleported above, then dodge the attack.
Crushing Bite Astel's jaws glow and flash purple before biting. If the attack lands, the target will be lifted off the ground in a gravity bubble before being crushed, dealing massive damage. This attack has an obvious windup and is very short ranged, dodge forward or run away.

Astel, Naturalborn of the Void Lore, Notes & Other Trivia

  • The barrier just beyond the boss can be broken by killing the Baleful Shadow as directed by Ranni. Use the Key given to you after wards on the locked chest in the Grand Library. The barrier will disappear afterwards
  • The description of the Remembrance of the Naturalborn implies a connection between Astel and the Fallingstar Beast, both being creatures that fell from the stars. Astel is a fully grown Malformed Star and is responsible for destroying one of the Eternal Cities, possibly the one found in the Deeproot Depths.
  • An unused animation shows Astel descending from the sky while playing the sound of a roaring fire. It could've been plausible for Astel to crash-land during or after the fight with Radahn, as he had conquered the stars to prevent Astel and its spawn from arriving to the Lands Between. However, this concept never came to, and was likely reworked into Radahn's Meteor Crash attack, making them both into separate fights.
  • As of patch 1.03, there is a known bug that may disconnect players who are summoned in co-op fights.

      Anon 15th Nov 02:29 recommends the fire scorpion charm with a +10 Blasphemous blade. BB is fine but this isn't a boss to have any of the scorpion charms equipped, it hits too hard and if you are unlucky it will constantly spam AoE that can one or two shot you. The reduced damage negation is the same as giving Astel a buff to the damage it does to you.

        Helping this dude in co-op and astel’s AI literally won’t stop spamming AOEs, it’s impossible to get hits in.

        • For anyone with decent but not full INT build, meteorite staff + rock sling is very nice for this. Does good damage and staggers him quite well.

            If youre meele youre done before you go to him, he will do many absurt gravity combos even if you dodge, if youre ranged he just use his tail and laser. Very bad boss, dissappointment

                  Tip: if you stick to the edge of the arena when he teleports, it messes with his mechanic and he will not use the teleport grab, beat it 10 times doing that and he never used a single one.

                  • Anonymous

                    The grab didn't one-shot me for some weird reason, but I might have a clue that if you spam the bumper (I was on Xbox) you might survive the grab, or I got grabbed from a different attack.

                        Visually the fight is really cool. The galaxy/black hole attacks look awesome.

                        Mechanically, it sucks. There are a ton of bad camera fights in this game and Astel is one of them. Combine that with Huge AoE's and a boss that literally won't stop moving, you get a bad boss fight. Pretty sure my mimic did 90% of the work in this fight because I couldn't have gotten off more than 10 hits on him

                            I wouldn't consider this boss hard but it is easily one of the worst bosses in the entire Souls series. Have to be under the guy to hit him as melee but he has like 2 attacks that you can't avoid because the AoE is so large. Crazy that this made it into the game and I find myself constantly wondering about the game decisions for ER

                              This boss is everything that is wrong with this game. Huge arena but the camera is horrendous, attacks that you can't really see because of said camera, almost undodgeable beam attack that does about 40% of your health, teleports across the map (not to often thank goodness)

                                Me and a +10 Dung Bro Puppet waxed this guy in two tries. Poo Boy kept spaming the madness burst and I bonked his head with a +18 claymore and ate every melee attack with an Eclipse greatshield. Just point the camera slighltly upward and start running when he teleports to help spot him.

                                      Magic build, Bloodhounds step only rh + lhutel + rock sling meteorite staff lh. Took many tries and lhutel didn't help much except a little aggro once you get in closer. Had to practice bhs for the laser, tail and teleport. Roll sideways to avoid meteors. Felt great to put this bastard to bed

                                      • One of my favorite fights in the game. He does big damage but his movement is kinda slow so you can easily dodge his attacks and go for his head. I like the effects of this fight and that It feels like fighting something dreadful from space. I defeated him with the Exiled Knight´s Halberd (I think that is the name of the weapon) without much effort yet this fight still left an impression and made me feel epic.

                                            Why are all the spirit summons so useless in the fight.. they just stalk around without moving in. I have to run through the boss to get them to engage. I mean really.... I killed fortisax on the first try easy peasy, with lutel distracting. I can do 1k+ with night comet but I cant get any of mimic, oleg or luhtel to consistently attack to give me time

                                                      Astel is one of the better boss fights and a lot of fun but not easy, every attack it hit me with was for a lot of damage and the grab attack was one shotting me every time but I still enjoyed fighting it, I got a good adrenaline rush from it the same as I did with the fire giant.

                                                      If the fight is p**sing you off though and you're not enjoying it or you are past NG the dung eater puppet spirit summons will tank for you while you target its head from a safer range, this is easy mode for Astel. Omen killer Rollo won't make the fight as easy, at +9 he wasn't tanking the hits like dung he was taking a lot more damage from them I had to fight with him so he wasn't the constant focus of argo while trying not to get hit myself but I summoned Rollo for the version in yelough anix tunnels and I don't know which hits harder.

                                                      This is the legend version with the remembrance but yelough anix tunnel is in consecrated snowfield an area not accessible until much later with notoriously difficult enemies, even the mausoleum there has artillery that starts bombarding you with blue fireballs that explode when they land before you get anywhere near it and they killed me three times in a row losing me a shed load of runes. So the version of Astel there I used Rollo for might just be hitting a lot harder than Astel in grand cloister.

                                                      It's also worth remembering just like the combat information here says, both versions of Astel shoot a hard hitting beam as soon as you enter their respective boss areas. I got hit after summoning as soon as I was in the room, it did very big damage and knocked me flat on my arse at the same time.

That would allow you to dodge wave of darkness and gravity lift much more easily while also having much more convenient camera. His head is also easier to hit than most dragons as he lowers it alot

                                                                              • This boss has a lot of bullshit attacks that are made even more bullshit by the shitty camera.
                                                                                One time I died because after his attack I lost the lock on him and could no longer see what he was doing. Then I re-entered, but he two-shotted me immediately because... bullshit whip attack that gives you no time to heal, and I lost all my souls.

                                                                                I usually like to learn the moveset of each boss, trying again and again until I can beat them without using any healing at all. Not this one.

                                                                                This one annoyed me so much, I summoned Latenna and just facetanked his attacks without grace, skill and even without caring, chugging potions to out-heal his damage while me and my summon took him down.
                                                                                Then I proceded to throw away all the Runes I earned from him out of spite, and used Cheat Engine to recover the one I lost to him. Good riddance.

                                                                                    He killed me probably 6 or 7 times before I beat him. I found it helpful to stay close enough that he'd do his tail thwack (which gives an opportunity to cast something afterward), but not so close that he'd suck you up in the anti-grav slam.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

This was a decent measure against the grab attack. eleanor poleblade +3 weapon art if connected well would often stagger. very frustrating boss for sure but satisfying to beat imo.

I happened to be far enough away from him whenever he used his shockwaves to not be hit by the initial slam, which would consistently instakill me. He always used his grab and mandible instakill moves on my Lhutel, and I managed to be far enough away from him that his lift-slam attack didn't hit me, which was also an instakill. Overall, it was a little fun, but I don't really want to deal with the second copy.

Can't even fight it for half the time, i get close and then it teleports away and comes to grab. I dodge the grab and get nothing in return since it teleports away again. If you could at least use Torrent to get closer faster, but i need to run for half the field because it decides to just teleport away.

Pushing and pulling things apart and together) can be found in very close proximity to both Astel. The "Bastard's Stars" also does extra damage to "gravity type enemies". Can they have been involved in their creation somehow?

More specifically his one hit teleport grab and his meteor attack as these feel more like rng than skill, also his downsmash aoe attack just feels impossible to dodge, like whenever i see that **** i just stand still and let it happen at this point

Had to dodge around a little but Astel never really tried to target her when I summoned her by the entrance.
