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 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.

Godfrey, First Elden Lord Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Godfrey, First Elden Lord:

  • Jump to avoid his stomp attacks.
  • Mainly deals Standard Damage, so prioritize defence towards that type of damage.
  • No matter the build, during phase 1 it is important to keep close. He will otherwise dash towards you and Stomp, covering the entire area in AoE.
  • In phase 2, recognize his grapple patterns.

 

General Strategy

As one of the easier late game bosses, Godfrey is not an overly complicated fight. He hits extremely hard, but is relatively slow and telegraphs his moves way ahead of time. Given you have enough stamina, you can block most of his axe swings in phase 1, although dodging them should be your priority. 

Most of his stomp moves can be avoided simply by jumping as soon as you see him lower his leg.
The regular stomp travels in a cone in front of him, leaving him briefly vulnerable to attacks. Avoid being caught on the wider side of the cone.

Godfrey can empower his stomps. He will stand at a distance and raise his axe overhead, slowly lifting his legs. He will have a red aura while the effect lasts. Until it dissipates, the shockwaves from his stomp attacks will cover the entire arena.

Once Godfrey is brought down to about 50% HP, a cutscene will play where he sheds his armor, slays his regent Serosh, and unveils his true form as Hoarah Loux, Warrior.

As Hoarah Loux, Godfrey ditches his axe in favor of hand-to-hand grappling. The key to beating him is recognizing the patterns for his grapple moves and dodging them accordingly, as they might one-hit players with low Vigor and will go through a shield block.  The best openings to damage him are after he ends an attack chain, as well as after a leap attacks.
Thankfully, emerging as Hoarah Loux does not refill his health bar, so you only have to deal with the final half.

Melee Users

Strategy Writeup for Melee Users

Magic and Ranged Users

At the beginning of the fight, Godfrey will approach the player calmly, leaving you ample time to stage your opening move. He is neutral to Lightning Damage.

Sorcery users can start the fight with Terra Magica, followed by Rennala's Full Moon. Comet Azur can be risky, as Godfrey might open with a jump attack if the player isn't in range. Speed is more important than damage here, especially in phase 2, so good choices would be Comet/Glintstone Cometshard or Glintstone Icecrag.

As for Incantations, you can start the first phase with Ekzykes's Decay. This will provoke the First Elden Lord to perform an attack, often a stomp, but you should be safe during casting the incantation. It might be worth trying the same in the second phase, although Horah Loux's attack patterns make this risky.
During the second half of each phase, a fast spell like Lightning Spear is the best choice to chip away his health. However, Hoarah Loux may unintentionally avoid few casts, so the best opening is his jump before the massive explosion on impact.

 

Godfrey, First Elden Lord Attacks & Counters

Godfrey, First Elden Lord
Attack Description Counter
Axe Toss Leaps upwards, tossing his axe a short distance forward before quickly chasing after it. Run towards and under him to avoid the axe and subsequent slam, or dodge.
Plunging Axe Leaps upwards, then plunges the haft of his axe into the ground. Dodge as he lands on the ground.
Triple Axe Combo Swings to his right, then to his left, following up with a final slash to the left. Dodge towards the direction each attack is coming from.
Overhead Smash Performs a quick overhead smash with his axe, often followed by other moves, most commonly a 360° spin and a subsequent second overhead smash. Dodge to the side.
Fissure Briefly whirls his axe above his head before crashing it into the ground, pushing it down further after a brief delay. This creates a narrow fissure that spans the whole length of the arena. The released energy burst deals immense damage. Move out of the fissure immediately (to the side).
Stomp Raises one leg for a powerful stomp, sending a shockwave that causes a cone of rocks to burst from the ground in front of him. Often combos this with other moves. Jump as his foot lands or dodge the narrowest part of the cone at melee range.
Earth Shattering Stomp Raises his axe overhead with both hands, lifting one leg, charging up with a red aura. Then stomps the ground, releasing a shockwave spanning almost the entire arena in all directions.
As long as his aura is active, all his stomps will have an arena-wide radius.
Jump as his foot lands. Avoid follow-up combos with additional jumps.
Hoarah Loux
Attack Description Counter
Earth Shattering Stomp  Just as in phase 1, but additionally, he's smashing the ground with both hands, sending two shockwaves consecutively.  Jump as his leg hits the ground, then avoid follow-up combos with additional jumps.
Power Bomb Runs towards his target with his arms swinging high, attempting to grab them. If the attack connects, they are tossed into the air and Hoarah Loux leaps after them, slamming them back down for immense damage. He will sometimes perform a running leap to start off the move, which will be much faster than his regular running animation. Time your dodge well and dodge to the side.
Running Power Bomb Dashes towards his target with his arms crossed above his chest, performing a claw strike. If the attack connects, they are sent flying diagonally up and forward, after which Hoarah Loux leaps after them to slam them to the ground. Can be dodged just like Power Bomb, of which this is an alternate version with slightly higher damage.
Hoarah Loux’s Earthshaker A three-step move: First a roar that knocks targets down if it connects, directly followed by a leap. Upon impact, he slams his fist into the ground, creating a large shockwave. Finally, he plunges both arms into the ground, pulling them back out after a short delay. This causes energy to erupt from the ground in several places. Maintain distance during roar, time a dodge for the slam. As he is plunging his arms into the ground, clear the area of eruption.
Kick A powerful kick upwards that knocks players down. Can easily be sidestepped or dodged due to its narrow hitbox.
Choke Slam Winds up his right arm, then after a short delay attempts to grab his target. If the grab connects, he lifts them overhead with one hand and slams them back down. Dodge backwards or to the side to avoid the grab.
This attack is often used after he knocked the player down with his kick, while they are immune to be grabbed.
Claw Barrage Performs two quick swipes with his claws, followed by a delayed uppercut with his left. He will sometimes follow this up with a Choke Slam. Block; or dodge in the direction each attack comes from.

 

 

Godfrey, First Elden Lord Lore, Notes & Other Trivia

  • At the beginning of the fight, Godfrey is seen cradling the shriveled corpse of his son Morgott, slowly dissipating into golden dust. His other sons are Mohg and Godwyn.
  • Serosh is seen biting into Godfrey’s shoulder during the fight. This is synonomous with him acting as a limiter for his true nature.
  • Player will be teleported to the center of the arena for phase 2 only if they don't finish the first phase with a critical strike.
  • Lore suggests that the powerful warrior Horoah Loux was chosen by Queen Marika as her consort, making him the First Elden Lord. Due to this, he took the Beast Regent Serosh upon his back, taming his bloodthirsty and wild nature, and taking the name of Godfrey. 
    After winning many wars for the Erdtree, he was robbed of his grace, and was banished from the Lands Between, becoming the first Tarnished. 
  • His Golden Shade variant has a two-headed axe, while Godfrey only has half of the axe head left.

      his ****ing aoe attacks are so ****ing cancer all he does is spam those and they aren't hard to dodge by themselves but once he chains them 4-5 times in a row they become almost impossible to evade

      • Anonymous

        So he’s doing a groundbreaking attack at the end of his phase 1. We watch the cutscene, he and the host warp to the center, and then we get smacked by the rest of the groundbreaking attack from phase 1 lol. I guess it could make sense, but it feels odd when you just watched a whole cutscene

          As of patch 1.05 he is no longer fun to fight. It really comes down to RNG in the phases if he roars or not. If he doesn’t, hey you got an easy win. But if he does, all his AI makes him do is dash/stomp until you die or your jump button breaks. Plus his tempo will eventually hit you with those stomps. If they fix this so he doesn’t only ever use that ability once he roars it’ll be a fun fight but I have never seen a clear as of 1.05 after he roars.

            This guy was royally kicking my arse in phase two. I had phase one down, but I couldn't catch a break in phase two. He was too aggressive and I couldn't seem to dodge his attacks enough to get in any attacks or heals.

            After many many attempts, I changed up my tactic in phase two and got super aggressive. I spent less time trying to dodge and more time spamming weapon art. Ended up beating him two attempts later (using a Rivers of Blood build). So if you're struggling in phase two, try being aggressive.

                    for the second phase stay behind his left leg, most attacks will miss and gives good opportunity for stamina regen and free hits. just be careful about his AOE stomps and roar

                      Can’t help but feel bad for Godfrey, he finally comes home to see the capital covered in ash, the lands between in tatters, his ex-wife shackled and his children murdered by some random mute tarnished.

                          Yet another boss in this game that kicked my ass for an hour and then all I wanted to do after I finally beat him was fight him again. Once you understand the rhythm and timing of his attacks, he's a blast.

                          • The trick to this boss is getting a free jump attack every single time he does a stomp. Just make sure you don't jump while you're too close to him or else his leg hitbox will still hit you

                                Tanky banished knight +10 summons got his attention, so I wailed on him from behind spamming my greatsword weapon art. His health dropped so fast I didn't notice a phase two, he killed me with aoe at the last second (but I killed him too). Dual death is still a win apparently, if they die during your death animation. Not bad, especially on the first go.

                                              I absolutely adore fighting this guy as a two-handed colossal weapon user brick. Aside from it turning into the most testosterone filled showdown ever, his moveset seems built around giving the "Dance" feel they wanted with Malenia to the STR users; Jump attack to avoid his stomp, most of his followup swings whiff over you since you're still bent over, then roll or simply strafe as appropriate when you get control back. When really on fire, the only things that stop you from staying in his face is running out of stamina or his "Alright get off me for a second" glowing shockwave attacks he gives you ample warning to retreat from as long as you avoided the first normal shockwave.

                                              Gets a bit trickier in his shirtless windy phase, since his stomps can now catch you if you jump directly into his face, but still doable. Also kinda makes up for it in how often he tries to suplex you and the free hit after dodging said grabs.

                                                Here's a theory I've come up with. I'm not sure if I believe it, though. The Godfrey you fight isn't alive anymore and he hasn't even been revived by grace. Think about it. Why would the Greater Will beckon him after he was spurned? Why would he only show up now considering how strong he is? And, lastly, if the theory about grace reviving us again and again is true, wouldn't it revive him after the fight as well? Because you do see rays of grace pointing towards you when you fight him. Or do you? There's actually another thing resembling grace which is mentioned in the Helphen's Steeple description. It's called lamplight and "is similar to grace in appearance, only it is said that it can only be seen by those who met their death in battle." The last line is curious to me, as it seems oddly specific. Now if you look closely during the intro, you can see that's what happened to Godfrey. He was stabbed through the chest and something resembling grace started guiding him. Maybe it was grace, maybe it was lamplight. However, I do find the idea interesting that Godfrey is guided by something related to Death, as it opens up the possibility that his appearance is due to Godwyn's interference. That would make more sense to me, as it feels rather random right now. Anyway, like I said, I might be overthinking it and don't really believe it myself.

                                                                Fun fact, in phase 1 he's immune to the black knife/black blade max health debuff, but in phase 2 he is not

                                                                  You can tell who implemented jump attacks into their playstyles and who didn't when you see them complaining about the Aoe. I personally like that Aoe because it encourages you to jump unlike most bosses

                                                                  • Anonymous

You can just hover over all of his non-explosive stomps and arena wide slams. Great fun to counter Regal Roar or his phase 2 Earthshaker by revealing yourself not to be a lowly Tarnished Warrior, but Placidusax back for a rematch!

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        like chill bro Gwyn, Vendrick & Lorian had no in-fight dialogues ; yet they are far more famous than you are

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          And it's a bit disheartening when I'm more worried about a single buff from first phase than the entire rest of the fight.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                This man is Flamelurker on roids.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      Dammit, now I'm going to be incessantly counting syllables in NG+

Going straight from Maliketh to Gideon to Godfrey to Radagon and Elden Beast just made me exhausted to have to keep adapting my strategy. Otherwise I think I'd enjoy this fight way more. My advice then is to make sure you leave some side content for after Maliketh so you don't get burnt out.

                                                                                            At least the fight is memorable as hell.

I guess that’s edgy and cool… sudddenly remove the armor instantly! Suddenly bathe in blood! Oh so sharp and edgy! Kill an animal, very powerful man! Doesn’t need friendship at all. Doesn’t need weapon or armor!

Also he's easy to poison with darts especially in phase 2 if he's focused on nephelli or an ash.
