Loretta, Knight of the Haligtree is a Boss in Elden Ring. Not to be confused with Royal Knight Loretta, the spirit version of this boss fought in Caria Manor. This Elden Ring Loretta, Knight of the Haligtree Guide features boss locations, tips, strategies and videos on how to defeat Loretta easily, as well as boss stats and lore for Loretta, Knight of the Haligtree.

This non-spirit version of Loretta can be fought at the bottom of Miquella's Haligtree. Loretta is a proud knight, previously in service to the Carian royal family. At some point, Loretta set out on a journey to find a safehaven for the Albinauric people, until she finally came across Miquella's Haligtree. She is rumored to be an Albinauric herself, as it's shape resembles their sacred birthing droplet. The blue glintstone of the war sickle she was given for being the personal guard of the Carian family has been replaced with the unalloyed gold often attributed to the young god Miquella.  

This boss is optional as players don't have to defeat Loretta in order to advance in Elden Ring, however, it is required to gain access to Elphael, Brace of the Haligtree. Loretta's attacks are quite telegraphed and she mainly casts Carian Sorceries, making this fight relatively straightforward. Do note that some of these spells should be dodged differently, i.e. some are safer to be dodged sideways and others towards Loretta herself. You can find tips on dodging her various attacks below. She drops Loretta's Mastery and Loretta's War Sickle upon defeat.

Bosses are unique and challenging Enemies that can be encountered all over the Lands Between. Great Enemy bosses can drop unique Spirit AshesWeaponsSpells, and other various Items.

 

Loretta, once a royal Carian Knight, went on a journey in search of a haven for Albinaurics, and determined that the Haligtree was their best chance for eventual salvation.

Loretta, Knight of the Haligtree Combat Information

  • Health: NG (??), NG+ (15,400), NG++ (??), NG+3 (??), NG+4 (??), NG+5 (??), NG+6 (??), NG+7 (??)
  • Defenses do not change between phases - a firebomb will do the same damage in phase 1 as in phase 2.
  • Deals Standard Damage, Pierce Damage and Magic Damage.
  • Parriable: Yes, but cannot be riposted.
  • Can be poise broken, but can't be riposted afterwards.
  • Can be put to sleep, but reward for that is not worth the risk.

 

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.

Loretta, Knight of the Haligtree Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Loretta, Knight of the Haligtree:

  • Maintain distance when she uses sorceries.
  • Dodge under her diagonal slashes and through her horizontal sweeps.
  • Use a tanky spirit to distract her and get some hits from behind.
  • Pair Barrier of Gold with Spelldrake Talisman (+2) to make this fight much easier.
  • The Erdtree Greatshield, if you can equip it, can counter her single projectiles like her magic Greatbow. It becomes less useful in the second phase when she fires multiple projectiles at once. Otherwise, a shield with Carian Retaliation or Thops’s Barrier serves a similar purpose.
Melee Users

Loretta is a straight forward encounter with easily discernible patterns. She frequently uses glintstone sorceries which are telegraphed by the flash of a blue rune. She will frequently use Carian Phalanx which have a long delay before they fly towards her target. Use this time to create some distance between you and Loretta and then sidestep the projectiles. You can also hit her once or twice during the Phalanx summoning animation before running away. If you have plenty of stamina and the timing of Loretta's melee attacks down (see below), you can dodge both Glintblade and lance attacks at close range to keep her in stabbing distance.

When below 50% health, she will upgrade her sorceries, such as adding more swords during her Phalanx and increasing the number of shots for her Greatbow. The bow is clearly visible when she is about to use it but the attack requires precise timing to dodge. Learn to anticipate when she is about to release the arrow and then dodge to the left or right. Do not dodge backwards as the projectile explodes on impact and will catch you as you try to evade. She also uses a jumping variation of the Greatbow which can easily be evaded by running or dodging under her.

For her melee strikes, dodge under her polearm's starting position for diagonal strikes and through the horizontal sweeps. Her overhead slash has decent tracking and requires more precise dodge timings.

It may be beneficial to entice Loretta over to the confined area up the stairs to the left as you enter the arena. The central edifice can be used for cover against attacks, while offering good healing opportunity. Meanwhile, Loretta will be boxed in, helping to keep her at melee range. She will teleport around this area, if you get too far away. You can get free hits in during her teleportation animation.

Magic and Ranged Users

The strategy remains largely the same for Magic and Ranged users with the exception that you should try to maintain your distance. You may have an easier time getting hits in during her spell cast animations compared to melee users. When fighting her at range, consider using summons to distract her or else she will frequently try to close the distance and her horse makes her extremely mobile.

Incantation users should bring Lightning Spear, simply because it deals Lightning Damage and is a fast spell with high damage (reaching 1k damage per hit is doable at this point of the game).

Loretta, Knight of the Haligtree Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter Parryable?
Carian Phalanx Swings her polearm around and summons 5 glintblades which then fly towards her target after a short delay. Loretta will likely begin her next attack before the glintblades begin to fire.  Glintblades have moderate tracking.

When below 50% health, she summons 8 glintblades, which fire in 2 separate waves with a short delay between them.
Create distance between yourself and the boss and sidestep the projectiles as they fly towards you. 

When glintblades fire at the same time as Glintstone Pebble, roll forward through the blades and the pebble at the same time.
No
Glintstone Stars Basic sorcery spell fired from the butt of her polearm. 

If you are close, Loretta will jump backwards while casting this.  Otherwise, she may cast it up to 4 times in a row.

When Loretta is below 50% health, she will fire 5 shots at the same time.

Easy to sidestep as long as you are a good distance. When at close or melee range, use a dodge roll.

When Loretta is below 50% health, and is firing 5 shots, rolling towards Loretta, through the shots is a more reliable way to avoid them.

No

Loretta's Mastery Charges up her greatbow and releases a great arrow after a short delay. The arrow explodes on impact and deals immense damage.

When below 50% health, she fires 4 arrows in a vertical formation that converge on your position.

A variation has her jumping away from her target before firing.
Requires precision timing. Learn to anticipate the arrow's release and dodge sideways. If performed in the air, simply run or dodge towards Loretta.

The arrows have a slower-than-expected travel speed, and dodging too early can lead to you being damaged by the resulting explosion.  To avoid this, wait until you can see the arrow flying through the air, and then roll directly towards Loretta.
No
Polearm
Slash
Loretta does a wide, horizontal slash with her polearm from her right to her left.

If Loretta was standing still when this attack starts, it is usually followed by an overhead slash or a polearm stab.  If Loretta was charging towards you, it usually has no follow-up attacks.
Dodge under the polearm's starting position, travelling to your left.  If there are no follow-up attacks, this is a good opportunity to get some hits in.

Alternatively, parry when the polearm is at a 45 degree angle from where you are standing.
Yes
Polearm
Stab
A quick thrust forward, followed by a quick slash upwards.  This usually follows Polearm Slash and Overhead Slash, but can occasionally be used on its own. Dodge sideways when you see her pull her polearm back.  Dodging to the right will put you in front of her horse, out of the area for the follow-up slash, allowing you to deal some damage.

Alternatively, parry as soon as Loretta begins her stab.  If you fail the parry, roll away as soon as possible to avoid the follow-up attack.
Yes
Overhead
Slash
A quick downwards slash, usually following a diagonal slash. Has decent tracking. This attack has decent tracking and requires precise dodging to the side. Watch her attacking hand.

Alternatively, parry when Loretta's polearm is above you at a 30 degree angle.  If you fail the parry, roll away as soon as possible to avoid the follow-up attack.
Yes
Power
Sweep
Loretta pulls her polearm to her left side, charging up an attack. She then swings in a very wide horizontal arc. Dodge through the attack, preferably against the swinging direction. Dodging backwards or sideways increases the time your hitbox and her polearm's hitbox overlap, causing a hit. Needs Further Testing

Loretta’s
Slash

Loretta ignites the end of her polearm with magic, and performs 2 swift slashes after a brief delay, one to the right, the other to the left. As soon as you see the end of the polearm go blue, walk or roll clockwise around Loretta.  This will leave you behind her horse where you can get a hit in while Loretta recovers. Needs Further Testing
Loretta’s
Slash
(sweeping)
Loretta ignites the end of her polearm.  After a longer delay, she performs 2 clockwise circular sweeps, then jumps, followed by a slam attack. Roll opposite to the direction of the 2 sweeps to dodge them reliably.  When Loretta jumps into the air, roll towards her just before she slams back down.  This will give you a large window to do some damage while she recovers from the attack. No
Horse
Stomp
Loretta's horse rears up on its hind legs, and then stomps down forward.  Loretta only uses this attack if the player is close and in front of her horse. Roll in any direction just before the horse stomps down. No
Horse
Kick
Loretta's horse quickly kicks behind it with its back legs.  Loretta only uses this attack if the player is close and behind her horse. This is quite quick and hard to dodge.  Simply avoid staying directly behind the horse except when Loretta is recovering from one of her larger attacks. No

Loretta, Knight of the Haligtree Lore, Notes & Other Trivia

  • According to the Silver Mirrorshield, it could be hinted that she is an Albinauric (more specifically a First-Generation Albinauric). They share some similarities, such as proficiency with the bow, along with riding a steed. The fact that an Albinauric could reach the status of Royal Knight was considered absurd, due to their heretical nature. Though, this could be false, as she bleeds red blood instead of the silver blood of the Albinaurics.
  • Loretta, Knight of the Haligtree makes the same grunting sounds as a Tree Sentinel.  This is likely an oversight, as they share almost all of the same melee moves. It is fitting, though, considering she is guarding her own Tree.
  • Loretta was a former Carian Knight, which explains her spirit version in Caria Manor. She eventually left to search for a sanctuary for the Albinaurics, and eventually entered Miquella’s service, tasked with guarding the Haligtree from intruders.
    She even replaced the glintstone in her weapon with unalloyed gold, further cementing her loyalty.

      I found can cheese her with greatsword roll thrusts, high poise, and magic resistance. Here's my formula

      Lionel's Armor. Arsenal Talisman. Spelldrake Talisman. Pearldrake Talisman. Barriers of Gold. This will allow you to dodge the Glintblade spam opportunistically but you don't need to focus on it.

      Then. Godslayer's Greatsword and just spam roll thrust (dodge roll + basic attack) through her melees. Again don't worry about the Glintblade spam. If she stance breaks (likely), use Queen's Black Flame.

      (I also popped Golden Vow and using a Fire-shrouding/Fath-knot physick. This definitely helped)

        it took me 2 tries at rl 100 to kill her
        whenever she casts the phalanx and a spell afterward, you can usually run to the right or left and the spells will fly past you
        also greatshield soldier ashes work well against her
        i personally spammed fortissax's lightning spears and took her down fairly easily

          I summoned my Greatshield Bois against her, and they just pushed her into a corner and stunlocked her into oblivion, i would've proly felt alot worse about if i didn't get completely reamed by Mohg several times beforehand.

            i used to really struggle with her and now that i dont anymore my advice is to
            1. pick up the spelldrake +2 talisman
            2. dont pay any respect to the floating daggers. i used to be scared of them and play way too passively waiting for them to fire off, and she would use the distance i created to spam spells which would whittle me down or outright oneshot in the case of the bow. pretty much just stay close

                I don't know if it's a bug in her AI or what, but all she did the whole fight was swat at my summon and didn't cast any spells, barely moved from her spot once she engaged. Fight lasted maybe a minute if that, very bizarre experience compared to the Carian fight

                    Phalanx up. Summon Tiche. Dodge roll incoming Loretta. Move back so she attacks Tiche. Drink bottle and fire off azure comet. Loretta dies. I thought this would be a really tough fight and now I will never now… Over in less than a minute but I won’t complain.

                      +10 Dung Eater did his thing while I ate popcorn from a distance. Every now and again I'd toss a Rock Sling in to lend a hand. I have no regrets after the number of times I've already died (one time loosing 190k runes) in this level. Dung Eater is so OP. Complete game changer. It's made so many of these bosses so much more enjoyable for me as I simply want to enjoy the game at my age (40).

                        If you don't care to learn the timing to dodge Loretta's Mastery (it's much less forgiving than her normal bow spell as it's very likely to one-shot you), you can just tank through it using the Silver Mirror Shield.

                          Tiche did all of the hard work for me. When Loretta finally smoked her, I waded it and cleaned up. Thanks, Tiche!

                              But why no Torrent though? Fighting enemies on horseback is so much more fun when you can also mount up, this is just a boring "roll around and dodge the magic spam" fight

She should have fired rings of light like the Cleanrot Knights do, a spell Miquella actually devised.

Neither are difficult to dodge on their own but at that point I'm just choosing which magic ability I want to one shot me.When I'm dodging the knives I just roll right into the arrows lol.

                                                                Loretta fought for the Albinaurics, seeking a home for those spurned artificial humans. She finally found the Haligtree which is considered a sanctuary for the Albinaurics since Miquella is a benevolent god. However we found zero Albinaurics in Haligtree. The terrible realization when we found the Albinaurics in Mohgwyn dynasty ground. They are taken by Mohg and his nobles along with Miquella, cursed with enter all suffering in the blood lake :(((

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    • Anonymous

If you time it right, it will eat up his spell and chunk him. Directly after that I tossed in a charged Stars of Ruin spell but it could be another spell. Made this fight easier though not trivial.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                                          • Anonymous

If you got not enough FP for Tiche you can craft the Potion that gives you unlimited FP for a few sec, drink it, then summon it.

Is that intentional? Its an extremely slow slash and its a bit annoying to get 1-shot by such a slow combo

                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                    I can literally take the elevator down and walk by the wizards without them blasting me so I can start the boss in peace, it’s not invisibility so be mindful if they are staring down where you are at

                                                                                                    You can sprint, jump, roll, etc. all silently

                                                                                                    I believe the effect comes from the chest piece, tailoring it removes this effect, but I wear the full set anyways

                                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                                      Pulley now plus bleed arrows while she has scarlet rot, pretty easy method, just need to watch out for when she agros you with magic

                                                                                                      Stack the magic defense talisman with pearl drake and some magic armor and you will be fine

It one-shots and if she starts it with you near her, there's no way to dodge. She killed me three times that way now and I'm confident that I dodged in time. The second sweep always hit me

Not because of the fight itself, but because of how unreasonably tanky she is and the way leading up to the fight is just plain stupid (those two sorcerers right before the fog gate are ****ing dumb)
