Battlemage Hugues is a Boss in Elden Ring. Battlemage Hugues is a Haima Battlemage and is found in Sellia Evergaol, in central Caelid north from Sellia. This is an optional boss as players don't need to defeat it to advance in Elden Ring.

Battlemage is the normal enemy form of this boss. Battlemage Hugues can be summoned as spirits for aid in battle through Battlemage Hugues Ashes.

 

Hugues came from Sellia to study the Haima Conspectus at the academy, where he became a battlemage.

Haima scholars seek to quell conflict with cannon fire and the gavel, but Hugues developed a longing for it.

Battlemage Hugues 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. The values after the "/"s indicate the increased resistances after each successive proc.

Elden Ring Battlemage Hugues Boss Guide

Battlemage Hugues Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Battlemage Hugues:

  • For melee users, try using a heavy or colossal weapon as the mage is easily staggered.
  • Try equipping the Rock Sling spell for magic users.
  • Bring the Carian Knight's Shield to block his many magic attacks.

 

Melee Users

Once you start the battle, walk up towards the summoning area, and quickly go behind the mage to perform a backstab. You can easily circle around the mage and continue performing backstab. If you manage to screw the rotation it's fine, wait for the mage to perform the Gavel of Haima and dodge roll through the slam, you can quickly get behind him and do a backstab, or you can just get a few swings in if you prefer that.

If you're using a colossal or heavy weapon, you'll easily stagger him with just a few swings, breaking his string of attacks. Once he's on his knees, you can then perform a crit attack.

Magic and Ranged Users

If you are a magic and ranged user, it's best to have a shield that can highly negate magic damage like the Carian Knight's Shield, he will use the Glintstone Shard spell if you try to create some distance, so you can either time your dodge correctly to avoid the attack or block it. You can try baiting him in using some melee attacks then dodge roll away, then cast your spells/incantations or fire away some arrows.

Alternatively you can just use Night Maiden's Mist. Get the tree between you and the boss and shoot the mist over the tree. Hughes will automatically retaliate as long as he takes damage, effectively pining himself into the mist but you should be safe with the trunk acting as a shield. Reapply the mist before it ends to kill him effortlessly.
