Godskin Noble is a Boss in Elden Ring. Godskin Nobles are humanoid enemies dressed in an armor made from voluminous flaps of skin, wielding rapiers and black flame magic. They can be encountered in multiple locations. These are optional bosses as players are not required to defeat them to advance in Elden Ring but they do provide useful items as well as Runes.

 

 An abnormally rotund creature brandishing a long and deadly thrusting sword. It uses its weapon with ease, capable of stabs and slams. One should beware if it unleashes its true potential, bloating its body to crush enemies beneath it.

Elden Ring Godskin Noble Location

Godskin Noble can be found in various locations:

  1. Spiritcaller's Cave in the Mountaintops of the Giants. Encountered in spectral form in a consecutive boss fight with a Godskin Apostle. The Noble is fought after the Apostle is defeated. Only counts as one boss fight and gives rewards once, the boss fight is called Godskin Apostle and Godskin Noble (Click on it for more info). [Elden Ring Map Link]
  2. Crumbling Farum Azula: At the main hall of the Dragon Temple, Godskin Noble is encountered in physical form alongside with Godskin Apostle as usual BUT this time they are both encountered simultaneously in a single boss fight called Godskin Duo. [Elden Ring Map Link]
  3. Volcano Manor: Located at the Temple of Eiglay (grants the Trophy / Achievement "Godskin Noble"). This temple is visible from the Prison Town Church grace, but the bridge leading to it is lowered to begin with. Instead, from the Prison Town Church grace you must trace a path around the edge of the lava lake westward over the rooftops and then south, until you can drop down to the lava lake's surface. Cross to the southern side of the lake from the west side and climb up to the area with many cages. One of the cages is an elevator. Climb up the steps after the elevator to reach the Temple of Eiglay.

  4. Carian Study Hall: One is located on the bridge between the Inverted Carian Study Hall and the Divine Tower of Liurnia after progressing Ranni the Witch's questline enough to get the Carian Inverted Statue. This enemy will drop the Godskin Noble Set. Spirit summons are not available for this fight. [Elden Ring Map Link]

 

Godskin Noble Combat Information

 

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 is 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.

Godskin Noble Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Godskin Noble:

  • Use sleep pots to put the boss to sleep. Usually one is enough and will allow you to get multiple hits in before it wakes up. Repeat as needed.
  • Alternatively, sleep arrows are very easy to craft at the point of game when players meet Noble for first time.

 

Melee Users

The Godskin Noble is fast and can deal damage or break poise rapidly through the Stab and Overhead Strike, and Stab and Backhand attacks. Generally melee users should circle around the Noble to deal damage while avoiding combo attacks, and quickly back away when the Black Flame Barrier spell is telegraphed. Parrying is difficult and not necessarily critical given the Noble does not have significant resistances to physical attack. Simply dodge rolling and avoiding physical attacks while striking occasionally is generally enough to outlast the Noble.

Bleed, poison and rot may be applied to the Noble without significant difficulty but take care when doing so with short or midrange melee weapons as the Noble does use its shove, barrier, stomp and belly roll moves to distance the player character if too much damage is done at once. The belly roll may be stopped by striking the Noble during the roll which will interrupt the attack and provide an opening for followup attacks.

Magic and Ranged Users

Strategy Writeup for Magic Users

Bridge to Divine Tower of Liurnia: Once reaching his threshold that causes his attack pattern to change, the Godskin Noble will roll at the player. When he begins rolling, you can catch him in one of the ports on the side of the bridge so he gets stuck. If you're able to make it back to the entrance, you can go to one side and when he attempts to roll up the stairs he will angle over the guard rail and fall to his death.

For Incantation users, best is to inflict one of Status Effects at the start and then attack Noble with either Lightning Spear or Swarm of Flies.

 

Godskin Noble Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Black Flame The Noble raises his left hand behind him and conjures a ball of Black Flame which he then tosses at his target.  tosses towards his target. The projectile has a rather fast travel speed and deals damage over time for a couple of seconds after a direct hit. Watch the telegraph and dodge sideways or through the projectile as soon as he tosses it. The Noble's Black Flame has a slower cast compared to the Apostle.
Black Flame Ritual The Noble holds his left hand low and to the side and then conjures pillars of black flame all around him. The flames persist for a while after, preventing melee attacks until they dissipate. Dodge away as he lowers his hand and maintain your distance.
Double Stomp The Noble fiercely stomps with his right leg twice in front of him. Deals damage in a small radius around the point of impact. Maintain distance, dodge backwards if caught in melee range, or parry.
Belly Shove The Noble shoves his target with his large belly. Does not deal damage, but can stagger targets. Dodge backwards.
Stab & Overhead Strike The Noble performs a quick jab with his rapier and then follows up with a slow overhead slash. Dodge both attacks sideways. It may be easier to just block the stab and then dodge the overhead slash.
Stab & Backhand The Noble stabs with his rapier and then performs a backhanded slap with his left hand. Dodge the stab by rolling to his right and the backhand should not hit you.
Below 60% Threshold When the Noble is brought down to 60% HP, he will cross his arms and float upwards and then slam down, releasing a shockwave in a small radius around him. This signifies the start of Phase 2 where he "unseats" the skin on his abdomen, allowing him to significantly bloat his belly, giving him a much larger hitbox for certain attacks. He also gains new attacks.
Godskin Wheel The Noble bloats up his belly and leaps up, landing on his side and then rolls around like a wheel, trampling anything in his path. Sprint to the side as soon as you see his belly increase in size. Hide behind pillars until he's done rolling.
Godskin Crusher The Noble bloats his body and floats upwards, before slamming down. Dodge in once you see him begin to descend. If you get knocked down by the initial blast, you can dodge in safely as soon as you get up.
Repeating Thrust Holds its rapier upright before unleashing a fast combo of thrusts. Dodge to his side and punish.
Noble Presence The Noble quickly thrusts his belly forward, dealing moderate damage and stunning targets in front of it. This attack is extremely fast, coming out in only 13 frames, but does not deal too much damage. There is a faint audio cue that’s similar to the casting sound of Black Flame and Black Flame Ritual but dampened. Dodge to his side.

Godskin Noble Lore, Notes & Other Trivia

  • Along with their Apostle comrades, they served the Gloam-Eyed Queen and wielded Black Flame to slay gods and carve their skin to wear for themselves. Theories suggest that the Gloam-Eyed Queen is Melina
  • One met at Divine Tower of Liurnia can be baited to roll himself of the bridge and die.

      Has anyone seen the bug where he will start the rolling then do a stab combo and immediately be in the rolling animation again? Killed most of my runs.

      • Anonymous

        When the Godskin Noble begins his wheel roll at you, roll in a direction going away from his head; the roll will go in a motion such that you are the origin of the circle he traces, if that makes sense. You can maneuver around this so that he'll just continue to roll around you and wear himself out, giving you time to heal / refill mana, select throwables etc.

          for the volcano manor one, if you manage to get him between the side wall during his spin he can be attacked through it making the fight wayyy easier

            I love this game and i love FromSoft, but this fight is just sooooo bad. So when he starts the rolling attack he has a weird bug in his code where if you arent the host he will glitch in and out of the animation until he locks onto the host and then does his roll again and this sh*t is soooo glitchy. Lol wtf

              Liurnia Tower Bridge cheese:

              Ride your horse fast past him all the way to the other side of the bridge and he'll de-aggro and turn away from you to watch in the direction of the site of grace. Carefully approach him from behind and you can get close enough to cast poison mist without aggro. Back off + wait, approach + poison. Repeat as necessary

              • Anonymous

                If you have issues with him, try focusing on rolling away from his attacks and into him back in melee range instead of to the sides. He has really good tracking to roll catch you mid roll, but he also has surprisingly mediocre direct range. The only problem is the multi-stab, but you can also roll into it and evade it that way, he will whiff the rest of his stabs. Though the roly poly and 0 frame belly thrust just suck, sorry.

                  I would recommend parrying. Why trying to guess whether he will follow-up when you can shut his combo right at start...

                    Gotta get yourself a Uchigatana with Lightning-Lightning Slash.

                    or you can just waste sleep pots on him like everyon else.

                      You can roll into him when he starts spinning. It works everytime, I am not sure why it's not mentioned as an alternative to running around him

                          You can easily avoid the Blubber Roll™ by sprinting after him as he rolls. Sing “ring around the rosie” for added effect.

                                I've just had a taste of the lesser fat-boy on the bridge before the divine tower of Liurnia on my first NG+ and it wasn't fun. There is no reliable way to not get hit again and again when te fat f**ker starts rolling around. But he will only go so far towards the west end of the bridge near the study hall use bleed arrows and dodge the fire ball and you'll be golden.

                                  "Sprint to the side as soon as you see his belly increase in size. Hide behind pillars until he's done rolling." he literally rolls through the pillars. in other words, there is no strategy outside of luck. typical fromsoft laziness.

                                    Anyone having trouble use Death's Poker on him. The L2 causes frostbite build up and L2+R1 puts a trail on the ground that procs when he walks over it. Phase two is super easy with it. Get him stuck rolling against a pillar and then spam L2+R1 and he will melt. Did it with a +6 Poker at level 41 (the first 4 somber you buy from Iji and then 5 & 6 can be gotten before Godskin in Volcano Manor, the 7th is behind the double stone key room in Volcano Manor depending how you got there you might be able to get it before the fight too. +8 is from a white dung beetle in Northern Caelid. You can have a strong weapon decently early in the game.

                                        This is a great example of Fromsoft ruining a great boss design with some of the most cheap moves in the game. Not only the endless roll but the terrible hit boxes on his sword, he’ll be stabbing over your head and you’ll take full damage.
                                        And his sword going through pillars is just sloppy

                                          Craft a couple of sleeping pots and this fight becomes super easy. In order to be able to craft the sleeping pots, you need the Fevor's Cookbook (1).

                                            It's amazing how FromSoft can make one godson enemy (the apostle) incredibly fun to fight and another (the noble) that has absolutely no redeeming qualities. Also, is there an explanation for why he is so fat?

                                              Between that idiotic rolling and the supernatural ability of his attacks to pass through pillars (which is a thing across ALL the From games), there is nothing rewarding or satisfying about fighting this thing. Just a stupefying grind.

                                                Fromsoft just couldn't resist putting another bonewheel skeleton in the game. But instead of making them boney, now they're fat. One hit from the roll and you're as good as dead cuz you'll be constantly thrown into the path of their roll to get hit again. Worst off, they're even faster than Torrent. You can't block because you'll get knocked over and then repeatedly hit until death. You can't run because they're faster than you. And on the bridge, you have no place to dodge.

                                                    I spent all this time reading guides and clever stuff... Trying to use sleep and spells and summons and incantations and stuff.

                                                    Ended up beating him solo at Volcano without healing with a light load and Bloodhound's Fang.

                                                    His only tricky dodge is the roll. Sometimes you can run right and slightly into his roll and he'll never hit you, sometimes he'll glitch on a pillar and end up locking you in a corner and rolling you to death.

                                                    The roll is a metaphorical dice roll. Don't be discouraged by that unfair death.

                                                    And Bloodhound's Fang. What else can you get this early that does so much slash damage?

                                                        Ride up to make him spawn, rot breath him and then ride right past him to the other side. One full FP will take him to more than half go at 12 Arc. He will float and not transform. One e he comes back to the ground rot breath him once again. Never got close to me.

                                                        Worst mid boss in the game, esp after 1.06 where he never stops rollling. Hope this helps!

By the time that's over his health is pretty low. His roll will get stuck on the throne and cannot get past it. When he is FINALLY done with that damn roll. Blast him again.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • In the manor, during the startup to the roll attack, just lock onto him and line up the little lockon dot with the middle of the pillars. you can buff here if you need to, since he just sits there rolling in place for around 20 seconds..

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            I have more information on his moveset, basically, if your REALLY close to him right after his phase transition, he will do the move where he jumps into the air instead of rolling. You usually have to dodge the explosion during his phase transition to get close enough for him to do this. Another thing is whenever you close the distance on him before he finishes throwing his fire ball, once he throws it, there is a 90% chance he will immediately cast black flame ritaul. The other 10% of the time he will either do his delayed hilt Stomp, or the double hilt Stomp. I think out all the 300+ times I've soloed the godskin duo, (successfully without the host dying) I've only seen him NOT do one of those 2 moves around 5 or 6 times. Also, both of these tips apply for the noble in all of his fights, including the duo. Also if you made it this far, have a good rest of your day!

                                                                            • Anonymous

The real culprit is his noble presence attack, it come out in 26 frames with little to no warning. The only thing that I've found to somewhat consistently dodge it is to turn off your music because the move has a faint audio cue that makes the same sound as a fireball being casted. Even then it requires insane reaction time and in the duo fight can easily mistaken for a fire ball being casted by te apostle. I've soloed the godskin duo for around 300 people now and this is the only move I have trouble with in both the noble and apostles moveset. Extra fact, as of recently, so many hosts have died on me when I've been soloing the duo because the noble agro's onto he host when doing the roll, and recently, for some reason the roll doesn't end once it hits and usually hits 3 times. Also if you get trapped against the wall during the roll, pray to God you can get out because 9/10 hosts die if they get trapped against the wall. I hope this helps anyone having trouble, and have a good rest of your day if you've made it this far.

I would say I feel bad but that roll, in that tight of a space, is cheap as heck. Plus he clips through pillars with every attack so it’s only fair that I can halitosis through a brick altar.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                              He spends around 15 seconds on that homing rolling that is extremely hard to dodge and even though he hits you, he just don't stop. Actually when he hits you, you're ****ed be cause by the time you get up he'll be into you face again. So it is basically enough to end the fight. Forget guides that say that just need to run in a certain way because if he gets slightly stuck on a wall or pillar, he'll turn immediately to you, ruining the diagonal run strategy. And of course, pray so he don't stun lock you on a wall when he is rolling.

I've just killed the fat coin-purse in the temple of Eiglay, on my first attempt I got five or six direct hits one after another with the sleep pots while it was focused on my spirit summons but they had no effect. And just like the previous comment he was standing in the middle of the vapour.

It's not like I missed, either, cause I was able to keep him in the cloud the whole time every time. Just gonna fight Rykard later lmao

I know I'm just tired and I'll probably get him when I come back to it, but the Volcano Manor version of this guy just pisses me off. I was doing well until the camera would decide something was in the way and make it invisible so I'd roll into what I though was an open space and instead get killed. For god's sake I can predict where he'll be if my camera is blocked but I can't play around something that is literally to my SIDE but blocks my roll. Once I lost one too many times I just started missing my parries and then it's a downward spiral. Couple the camera with only getting ONE try to find the parry timing and tell on that flurry of thrusts in phase 2 since it one shots me even if blocking and I just need a break. This just doesn't feel like a boss that deserves to give me this level of frustration.
