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

The Fire Giant, the last known survivor of the War against the Giants, is a massive humanoid with a face on its chest, and is found in the Mountaintops of the Giants. The Fire Giants worshipped the One-Eyed/Fell God and was one of the few factions Queen Marika waged war on. The Golden Order feared the 'flame of ruin' capable of burning down the Erdtree found within their forge, and so it is believed that Marika slew their god and cursed the last of the Fire Giants to guard the forge for eternity.

This is NOT an optional boss as players MUST defeat this foe in order to advance to the Forge of the Giants. The Fire Giant deals massive amounts of Fire Damage, so equipping and consuming Equipment and Items that boost your Fire resistance will help if you're struggling with this fight. He drops the Remembrance of the Fire Giant 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.

 

 The Fire Giant is a survivor of the War against the Giants. Upon realizing the flames of their forge would never die, Queen Marika marked him with a curse.
 
"O trifling giant, mayest thou tend thy flame for eternity."

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 an absorption of -100 means the enemy takes 2x damage from that source. An absorption of 0 means that the enemy will suffer the normal amount of damage. 

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.

Fire Giant Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Fire Giant:

 

Melee Users

Use Torrent to close the initial distance, using the dismount to i-frame through the giants first attack. Do not stay on Torrent in the first phase; the fire giant will constantly use swipe and jump attacks that require using I-frames to dodge, which is not possible using torrent. You can use him to safely close the distance again if needed, dismount i-framing through his attacks.

Phase 1

During this phase, the giant is somewhat mobile, and will roll to build distance if you get behind or below him for too long.
Aim for his left leg, which is wrapped in rope. Once this breaks, it reveals a weak spot. He will pause for a moment when it does, so take the opportunity to get in some free damage.

Once broken, he will always roll away. He now gains 2 new attacks:

  • A slow moving orb, which explodes once it gets close, or after a period of time. Bait the explosion, and roll away quickly from the area, as it leaves behind a field of fire. You can use Torrent to make this easier, but be wary of doing this within range of his plate swings
  • The second is a launched fireball, which is only a concern if he rolls too far away. Simply watch for the launch, and dodge.
Phase 2

For the second phase of the boss, his weakspot moves to his left forearm. However, this is a very dangerous place to be so hop on torrent and stick to his backside, as most of his attacks are to the front. Be wary of the sides as he will roll to reposition.
The boss can be staggered, allowing you to stab his eye for massive damage. Be cautious with this however, as he doesn't stay down for long, and being in front leaves you vulnerable.
There are three attacks to be concerned about here:

  • The slow fire orb from the first phase, however he now spawns them in pairs.
  • His scream fire attack; run far away as this attack will spawn heavily-damaging fire spots underneath him.
  • He will rear up, and launch volcanic rocks into the air. Stay on Torrent, and build distance whilst dodging.

This boss has a lot of hp, so be patient and keep an eye on your stamina and torrent's health.

Magic and Ranged Users

The tactics for ranged users are essentially the same as melee. It's recommended to stay close to the fire giant as this eliminates the launched fireball attack from consideration.

When you take on the Fire Giant as a sorcerer, it is best to have a particularly quick-casting, hard-hitting spell on hand (such as Stars of Ruin). You're not going to have to worry about burning through all of your FP, because like fighting a troll or the giant stone sentinels, the Fire Giant is extremely vulnerable to attacks on his weak points and we're particularly good at hitting them. Thanks to this, he can, and will, fold like a wet noodle with a little work. Some things that are extremely important to take into consideration:

  • As with melee users, it is best to avoid using your horse. Fire Giant deals an insanely high amount of damage with all attacks, and us sorcerers typically will not survive being hit by him. Fortunately, he is easy to dodge and his attacks are highly telegraphed.
  • If you have Black Knife Tiche at +6 or higher, she is definitely recommended. During phase one, Fire Giant is very mobile and has a tendency to roll away from you so you will have to close the distance. Tiche is extremely aggressive and very fast, but also good at dodging. She will almost always pull aggro when the giant rolls away from you which will allow you time to reposition and start hitting him with your spells again.
  • If you can stay under or even behind him in phase one this can be very useful. If you cannot, stay at least far enough back that you can always see his weird disk as that will be the best hint as to what attack he is using next. 
  • When phase two begins you'll be sitting a lot better than you were in phase one. It might take a try or two to get used to what he has going on, but once you do you can take advantage of his new move set. For one, he becomes almost entirely stationary, and switches to a lot of ranged attacks. Some may suggest staying close to avoid his fireball, but keeping a little distance to bait out his fireball is not a bad idea as it is extremely easy to dodge.
    • He may also use his big fire pillar AoE attack which is basically free real estate for us as we can hit him with impunity while he uses it.
  • The biggest threats from him are his ice wave attack as the animation can be easily confused for one of his sweep attacks, and the slow moving fireball he uses. It will follow you around for quite a while and just serves to be a nuisance. 

The Fire Giant is scary. He's been getting a bad rep as extremely dangerous and very difficult. Go into it expecting to lose 5-10 times, and unless you get really lucky right away take the time to learn his attacks and then just dodge him and laugh at him as he struggles to deal with you and your glorious sorceries. He's far easier than he looks at first so don't fall to the hype!

For Incantation users, a lot of the advice is similar, but additionally Rotten Breath is very effective, and Pest Threads (at close range) deals heavy damage to large targets like the giant.

 

Fire Giant Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter Phase
Avalanche The giant places the plate vertically in the ground, and launches snow at the player Dodge as the snow gets close, or get behind him before it launches. If used when approaching on horse, use dismount I-frames to avoid the attack. 1
Jump-smash The giant jumps in the air, and slams the plate into the ground Dodge as the plate lands, using i-frames to avoid damage 1
Plate Swing The giant swings the plate at the player. He may do a follow up swing Dodge through the plate 1
Stomp The giant stomps his foot, dealing high damage and stun. Dodge as the foot lands 1
Roll The giant quickly rolls forward to reposition itself. Behind the giant is safe, otherwise, dodge through it. 1&2
Giantsflame, Take Thee The giant launches a fast moving fire projectile at the player. In phase 2, he will launch two at once. Dodge as soon as the projectile leaves his hand. Torrent can easily dodge this. 1&2
Flame of the Fell God Akin to the incantation, the giant spawns a slow moving orb that tracks the player. Once it gets in range, it explodes for massive damage, and leaves a field of fire. He spawns them in pairs in phase 2 Bait the explosion if possible, and roll quickly away to avoid the field of fire 1&2
Burn, O Flame! The giant lets out a roar, and ignites his hands, before slamming them into the ground, spawning fire pillars in his vicinity Run away, or tuck in close and watch for the patches spawning 1&2
Flame, Fall Upon Them The giant’s mouth releases a mighty roar, spewing out explosive rocks from its mouth. These rocks linger on the ground before exploding. Run away, or get behind it to punish. 2
Surge, O Flame! The giant’s mouth ignites, releasing a stream of fire in front of it.  Run Away or get behind it 2
Swipe The giant swipes from either left or right with his hand at anyone in front of him Stay behind the giant, or roll through his hand 2

Fire Giant Lore, Notes & Other Trivia

  • Voice Actor: Shaun Dooley
  • During first phase, there is an additional giant under boss fight area - this version appears at the beginning of the second phase. 
  • At one point during Elden Ring’s post-launch, there was a bug related to Status Effects. If the player manage to get to 2nd phase via Poison, Scarlet Rot, Hemorrhage or Frostbite, it's effect would be multiplied. What can even "skip" the 2nd phase. 
  • The Trolls are said to have been descendants of the Giants, and have since betrayed them during the war. Some have speculated that the gaping holes in the Troll’s midsection may have been where the Fell God resided, and have since been excised when they switched sides.

      Puzzled by the article and comments talking about Torrent. You can't use Torrent in this fight, so I assume this was patched out.

        I highly recommend summoning Alexander for this fight if you don't plan on using Torrent, it makes an annoying slog of a fight considerably more tolerable, this guy does have a cool design and all, and that phase 2 cutscene is great, but in terms of the actual fight? it's just a complete slog, particularly if you aren't using bleed or something that does percentage based damage like Black Flame.

        • Anonymous

          If anyone else is having trouble with this one, your best shot I think is to try and always stand behind him. Torrent helps because when he rolls away you can close the gap faster so he doesn't mint you into a silver dollar.

            Easy enough but still a stupid boss fight. If not for the exploration I would've thrown this trash game in an active volcano.

              If it wasn't for the total bull crap hitboxes of doom and the usual one hit kills/stunlock in that massively huge area in which the attacks land, I'd actually enjoy trying to strategically fight this boss.

                IMHO coolest fight in the game (to this point- haven’t finished yet) Visually so awesome- especially since you can SEE him and appreciate the art. So many bosses are right up in your face and or in smallish spaces. Kudos to the team

                  Alexander really helps with this fight, he hurts the Fire Giant quite alot with every hit and he managed to poise break him several times, this fight for me came down to Alexander tanking the Fire Giant's attacks like the absolute king that he is while also doing some very impressive damage, while i just kept spanking the giant with the Godslayer Greatsword's weapon art.

                  • Anonymous

                    Blackflame blade is extremely effective against him. Large healthpool, large windows, you can shred him down with any fast weapon.

                    • Even if you don't like to summon, i'd recommend doing it anyway just so you can see his attacks from a distance in relation to delay and sound cues. When melee attacking him in phase one you won't see much more than feet and ankles so those sound cues come in handy when dodging. Locking on is dangerous as it throws the camera around in an idiotic and disorienting fashion.

                        I used the same strat I use for dragon bosses: HONSE.
                        Put some distance, then charge at him with torrent. Most dragons will do a breath attack. Dismount and unleash a combo on their legs. Remount, put some distance, rinse, repeat.

                          Very cool boss fight with one serious exception. His slow moving orbs pass through EVERYTHING (the quicker orbs do not). Trees, rock, whatever. Has this been patched yet? I'm considering playing ER again but was underwhelmed overall compared to previous FS games.

                            Made the mistake of summoning Alexander AND Tiche for this fight, making the giant's already massive health pool even larger... fight took way too long.

                                If we had this much trouble with just one Fire Giant with a crippled bad leg, Godfrey and his warriors must've been absolutely op as hell to take on a mountain full of these things.

                                  Man this fight is sad af, especially when you find out that he's the last of his kind cursed by marika to forever protect the forge and it gets worse when the game forces you to attack his injured leg till he rips it off himself.

                                    This fight really made me feel bad, like this guy is the last of his kind, cursed to tend the Flame of Ruin until someone finally ends his life by Marika the one who genocided his race, surrounded by the frozen long-dead bodies of his kin on his own with nothing but his hatred to keep him company, and we come strolling in and break the guy's leg and kill him, although considering how he was cursed to tend the flame eternally by Marika, i guess by killing him we are ending his suffering.

                                      I've always struggled on this guy on my first two characters (melee/faith + melee/bow). First phase is ok... but phase two is hard (for me). I don't use summons on this boss, I'm in no way pro at this game, just thinks he's easier without them.

                                      Now.. on my third character: a spellblade, it wasnt so bad. Phase one is easy, but you need to get close to him. It's more dangerous to keep range in this phase. Go for his feet and stay there. Don't bother with spells, just whack his feet with a big stick. Mount up and run to his feet when he rolls. Be wary of his fireballs. I used a Magic Godskin stitcher +25 with glintstone phalanx. This weapons running R2 have huge range and keeps you pretty mobile even on foot.

                                      Phase two: after the cutscene ends immediately pop physick potion with infite FP and magic damage boost tears. Cast Meteorite of Astel and keep pushing the button until you're out of mana. On my char (80 int) he had like 5% life left.. so I finished him with a comet. I didnt take a single point of damage during phase two... so I guess I could've cast terra magica first too.. and the he would probably have died during the meteorstorm.

                                        I can see why people hate this boss since he suffers from the issues most giant bosses have, but i thought this fight was really cool for just the sheer spectacle and the design of it, that second phase cutscene is great, oh yeah and mah boi Alexander is proly part of the reason why i liked this boss.

                                          • Others have said it, but Tiche + Rotten Breath + Alexander is a amazing combo. I used something with Bloodhound’s Step to get in and out from under his feet quickly when applying Rotten Breath, but otherwise I stayed well out of the way and let my minions do the work.

                                                    I've played all the souls games, and I am hardcore ER fanboy, but for the love of god, after the first playthrough of this boss, where its a huge and awesome spectacle, subsequent fights against him feel like such a chore. He runs away WAY too much, and due to the arena being sloped, he can easily position himself on top of a rock or hill where you have to spend another 5 seconds of time trying to get to his weakened leg. He takes extra bonus damage in his eye, but unless you're free aiming with certain incantations or spells, you will barely ever hit it.

First part Alexander and I tanked with melee, second part I joined the mimic tear in a bow party and had radahn's rain all over him from safe distance while Alexander kept close to the giant. Lion's bow is, as always, a great choice against very large, slow-moving enemies.

                                                                  This boss can be easy, but many players seem to make it harder.
                                                                  -First, DO NOT waste a decay breath on him in the 1st half. His resistance will increase if it procs on him, making it that much more difficult to proc decay on him in the 2nd half (which is more desirable due to some of his fire attacks in his 2nd half will make it more difficult to get near him).
                                                                  -Second, if you have cooperators, DO NOT let him drag you farther away from where he will “teleport”. Only the Host is teleported with him. Simply put, if you have cooperators, a lot of potential initial damage is lost, further dragging out the scuffle. It is also a great time to hit him with decay (when I join others, I make it a point to start slinging poison arrows at him, after two good chunks of damage has been done to his leg, in an effort to lead him back up the slope. It works well, but there is the occasional player who doesn’t get it and interferes with my cooperative intent).
                                                                  -Thirdly, magic users, STOP! Good gawd, when I start slinging arrows at him, I notice magical range attacks being slung at him to come up way Fn’ short. And they just keep doing it. If you’re gonna sling magic at him, ya still need to get up close to him. Pay attention to his health bar as you cast magic at him, if there is no damage done, then get closer. As nerve wracking as it may seem, magic users will need to be within the giants reach in order to effectively, and consistently, hit him.
                                                                  -Fourthly, two combination attacks work great on his leg: the bubble shower (w/ Shard of Alexander, Sacred Scorpion Charm, Envoy Crown, and Holy Shrouding Cracked Tear are needed for this) and one of the gravity spells(?). This wrecks him so fast, that he goes into the 2nd phase without ever being able to roll away. Sadly, a lot of players (even some of my own friends) are so stuck on their “build”/fight style, that they’re not willing to use anything else, no matter how much more effective it may be.
                                                                  And Fifth, please pay attention to those slow orbs of fire he conjures up in his hands and then sends them after you? Don’t go near your cooperators if that damn fireball is tracking you. Man the F up, and detonate the fireballs as quickly as possible. They can wipe everyone out in one shot!

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

Not sure what happened, but in the second phase his health just MELTED. Could've been because of frost buildup from my sword, Tiche's Blade of Death, or a combination of the two. He barely had a chance to move in the second phase.

                                                                            • Anonymous

The fire attacks aren’t that hard once you get them. The worst part is honestly how he constantly moves his wrists in phase 2. Also on the move when he flops on the ground and breathes fire out of his weird chest mouth you can just walk around and get like 6 free hits

                                                                              • Anonymous

I forgot he was still even there until I couldn't summon torrent, died then saw him standing there off in the distance like the absolute pothead he is.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                          Called my big boi Alex, but his AI just turned off on the second phase. Then I just brought the Giant near him, and when the Giant attacked him, his AI turned on again.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

Tried pure aggression on him and it worked without issues.

                                                                                                                • Sure is fun running after him for like a solid minute after he rolls a hundred meters in five seconds only to get in a single attack that deals less than five percent of his health before he just rolls off into the sunset again

Timing is a little tricky and you gotta be right next to his ankle, but it can get you into phase 2 really quickly. Then just dodge attacks and use regular comet on his hand.

During phase one stay around his his feet (use your shield to block his shield swipes as you approach) and keep hacking at the left ankle. When he does his move where he sets the ground on fire, don't run away but find a safe area between the flame patches, then resume hitting the ankle. During phase two, if you did it right both Alexander and your tank summons (e.g. Oleg) should still have more than half their life bars left. Let them attack melee while you use ranged attacks (e.g. lightning spear) to pick away at his health. Make sure to retreat when he does his volcano or flamethrower thing. You can't make any big mistakes as he can one-shot you with his shield.

                                                                                                                        • It took me 20+ tries, but I finally did it. A shield is critically important, it absorbs a lot a damage. I used a +9 Sword of Night and Flame and a shield. All flasks were health (and I am playing a mage). Also a +10 mimic and good ‘old Alexander (had to go back and complete his quest line). Defeated the Fire Giant with no Flasks Left and 1/2 health. I suck at video games, so if I can do it, anyone can. Be persistent and find the right combo of weapons, flasks, summons and talismans for you.
