Margit the Fell Omen Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Margit the Fell Omen:

  • Using the Lone Wolf Ashes can help distract Margit long enough to get some easy damage in with spells or melee attacks. The wolves work better than the Northern Mercenary for this fight because you only need them to stay alive, and it's harder to kill 3 mobile targets than 1 non-mobile one.
  • Beast Claw and Glintstone Stars both work amazingly well in this fight if you can get separation to use them. Consider bringing only 1 health flask so you can get more casts in if you do decide to use them.
  • Despite appearances, it seems like his glowing yellow blade is 100% Physical Damage, though his Staff is not.
  • Wait for him to do his leaping plunge attack with his Hammer and roll through it towards him to get in some easy damage. This is your best opening during this fight.

 

Melee Strategy

This is an exceptionally difficult fight for melee users, because Margit is extremely aggressive and has somewhat long combos making it difficult to Block the whole chain of attacks. You'll have to Block sparingly, and Dodge most of his attacks to maintain enough Stamina to still attack afterwards.

Using the Lone Wolf Ashes if you attack him quickly, between you and the wolves' attacks, you can stagger him and get a free visceral attack. Make sure you keep up the pressure early if you can to try to trigger this.

Having high HP can allow you to trade hits more easily, and you should be wearing the Crucible Set for this fight to help mitigate damage you receive. It's the tankiest Armor in the Closed Network Test, and should allow you to survive a bit longer, and still medium roll if you have enough Strength.

Bait his attacks and wait until you are sure he has stopped swinging before attacking, because he can extend certain combos into longer variants if he thinks he can hit you. You'll likely guess wrong a few times, and trade damage, but that's ok.

Look for his leaping hammer attack and roll through it towards him, and get in a shot or two while he's still in the landing animation. Don't be greedy on this Boss, you can rarely attack more than once without trading damage, and you can't do that every time of you will run out of healing.

Consider slotting Ashes of War: Carian Glintsword if you want a high damage burst attack. It's hard to land sometimes, but the damage is incredible, even with minimal investment into Intelligence.

 

Magic and Ranged Strategy

The strategy for Magic and Ranged users is somewhat easier, though Shortbow users may have a harder time due to lower damage and lack of a Shield.

Margit is usually aggressive or not, and there seems to be no in between. If you can keep separation from him until he goes into a "not aggressive" phase, then you can range him fairly easily for a short time, getting some free damage. Just make sure to watch out for his Blade Toss attack, so you don't get hit.

You should be using Beast Claw or Glintstone Stars to attack him if possible, as these are incredibly effective and efficient. Their cast times are in the mid-range, so you'll have to have proper spacing to use them, so be warned. Additionally, it's not a bad idea to use a Shield in your off-hand to Block in emergencies, or after you cast in case you cut it too close.

You can use the Lone Wolf Ashes to create a distraction that can allow you to range him down in less than a minute if you play it right. Wait for the wolves to gain his attention, and then unleash spell after spell, making sure to pause when you gain aggro, giving the wolves time to acquire it once again before continuing your barrage.

      Incredible boss. Not only does he have a wide variety of moves, but he can also chain them together creating an extremely complex moveset. Outstanding design, great music too.

        First main boss of the whole game, and he has got like 20 different attacks. One thing to note that you can parry his backhand staff attack, but this time you need to parry bosses twice to get a riposte.
