Demi-Human Queen 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.


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 Demi-Human Queen Maggie Boss Guide


Demi-Human Queen Maggie Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Demi-Human Queen Maggie:


Melee Users

When dealing attacks and running within range, be aware of the rocky terrain so you don't get stuck for one of its counter attacks. It would be more beneficial for this strategy if you could lead her to flatter ground, if not just be aware of the rocks in the area. The boss has lot of similar action movesets. Basic slam sets with either her hand or staff can be avoided by rolling forward which will also put you in a better position for you next attack. If remaining in close range, she will rarely use her magic attacks. Try as much as possible to stay close to her to deal melee attack damage. A lot of her attacks will also only affect mid range but can be avoided when you stay close. Try to always circle behind her. If too close be ready to quickly roll back for her closer range smash attacks. 

Magic and Ranged Users

With longer range, she has a limited set of magic attacks. These spells she uses are basic glinstone projectile spells and can be easily avoided as soon as they are casted and you see the direction they are heading. If using magic, just be cautious because it can enrage her. You can also choose to use the same type against her, the " target="">Glintstone Shard. When choosing this method, make sure you keep circling around her and keep moving so she won't be able to target you as easily. 


Demi-Human Queen Maggie Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Staff Plunge Drag Combo Staff is plunged vertically into the ground followed by a quick drag of her staff on the ground, dealing a two direction attack combo This is her only two-hit combo where you have to watch more than one direction after the first part of the sequence is dealt. Roll away from the plunge then roll back to counter the second part. If you manage to roll close enough to her, the drag should not hit you. 
Hand Smash Hand is brought up then smashed to the ground dealing small AoE damage Roll towards her or through the attack
Staff Smash Her staff is smashed into the ground  Roll towards her or through the attack
Staff Swing Her staff is swung to the side   Roll through the swing in the opposite direction
Crystal Burst Charges from the side, before releasing many projectiles in a spread formation Back away or dodge forward
Glintstone Pebble Fires off a singular blue projectile that homes in, dealing magic damage. Dodge to the side, or use Torrent to avoid.

      I rode my magic pony on top of the next closest building and started sniping her and the glintstone guys untill she stood below and howled at me whereupon she got a faceful of night madens mist. Done.

            I cheesed this fight by riding past her and her helpers onto the rock outcrop behind her, then using Carian Retaliation to parry her spells from long range. For some reason she never tried to close the distance. After she died I rode back and saw all her backup demi-humans and sorcerers were dead too. Don’t know how that happened.

              Why are there still no resistance values on this page a quarter-year later? What the hell is this thing weak to?

              • Anonymous

                I'm surprised to see some of these comments, don't try to fight her until you have the site of grace near the primeval Azur sorcerer, if you haven't been able to get to this site of grace without maggie and the sorcerer enemies getting all agro on you, just rest at it so the enemies in the area reset. Unlike the wiki entry above, I'd recommend fighting her on the rock outcrop that allows you to jump down to Gemlir heroes grave, this is where I fought her and as long as you keep a cool head, remembering not to dodge roll or jump to your death you should be golden. I killed the Raya Lucaria sorcerer nearest to the primeval sorcerer site of grace first, maggie will alert right away and head in your direction, I hit her with frenzied burst twice before she got into melee range, then stayed near her back legs hitting her with two handed charged attacks and I was surprised how easy it was to get a critical hit on her, I recommend this way of fighting her because none of the other Raya Lucaria sorcerers or demi humans got agro with me like they would have if I'd approached from the craftsman's shack.

                  Yea, **** this fight. On top of the one shot Crystal Burst attack, I'm getting pelted with sorceries constantly by the other Sorcerers, the small Demi Humans are there, the large Demi Human, who is basically a mini boss on their own, is there for some reason. There's too much happening and too many damage sources from too many directions. You really need to take out everything else before you can even try fighting Maggie. Plus, a single slam of her staff wipes out over half my health even with 37 VIG and good armor, which is very easy to get hit by while rushing around trying to deal with everything else, largely because the damn staff also has a range of oh...10,000 miles or so? This has to be one of my least favorite bosses out of the dozens and dozens I've fought.

                    A couple other people are talking about how her Crystal Burst is one shot-ing them. Well, I'm another who this is happening to. I'm RL 90, 37 VIG. Wearing the Hierodas Glintstone Crown, Radahn's Lion Armor, Noble's Gloves and Depraved Perfumer Trousers. These all have fairly high magic defense. They're all the highest magic defense gear I have anyways. I also have on the +1 Spelldrake Talisman. All that and her Crystal Burst still one shots me from full health. That is ridiculous. I'm also thinking that every separate shard is registering as hitting at the same time. That same thing happened to me another time but I forget where. It's making this boss a nightmare, especially since I already hate boss fights where you have to also deal with multiple other enemies.

                      Serpent’s Bow with Serpent Arrows will poison her quickly. Get on a roof with Torrent, then dismount and hit her with an arrow to proc poison. Let it run its course, rinse and repeat. You can use the roof to shield yourself from her magic until she de-aggros.

                        Weird theory but i think it's possible we kill boc's mother. We find the prattling pate in the hermit village aswell. I thought about it for a bit, the way he refers to the pate as his mothers voice makes me think that maggie is boc's mother and we killed her. Granted she's prolly crazed from the shattering but yeah random thought.

                          she can easily move around those ledges and she uses that to cheese you. was not hard but so far my least favorite boss fight.

                            Her Crystal Burst may be bugged, I'm way overleveled for this boss, RL 120 with 40 vig and using the +1 Spelldrake talisman and in heavy armor and Golden Vow buffed. Her Crystal Burst literally one shot me, that doesn't make any sense any way look at it, especially when her glintstone shard attack hardly did any damage. This happened twice so I doubt it was a fluke. I best guess is that the game registered the one shard that hit me as every single shard hitting me at once. IDK, anyone else have this happen? Probably should've put on my best magic resist armor for this but alas.

                              I beat this boss first try by accidentally pulling her on sight without the sorcerers noticing, then kiting her back to the village and using houses for cover

                                A bullshit boss fight but got it at the second go. You absolutely need to kill those sorcerer adds you will probably burn through most of your flask just doing that but the boss itself isn't bad. Just those friggers spamming.

                                  A hilarious strat for this boss is to lead the headless Iron Maiden enemy (robot with grinding buzzsaw-arms) from just in front of Hermit Village all the way to the end- if you bait its charging attack where it rapidly rolls forwards on its saws/wheel, it can grind up against the boss and decimate its HP in seconds!

                                  I haven't successfully killed the boss in this way yet because the Maiden keeps killing me in the process, but I got the Maggie down to half health when the Maiden dealt 3,615 damage in less than a second!
