Morgott, The Omen King, also known as Morgott the Grace Given, is a Demigod Boss in Elden RingMorgott is the true identity of Margit, the Fell Omen, and the self-proclaimed "Last of All Kings". Although he and his twin brother Mohg were imprisoned deep in the Subterranean Shunning-Grounds for being born as Omen royalty, Morgott still loved the Golden Order and defended the capital when his fellow demigods invaded during the Shattering. This is not an optional boss as players must defeat him to advance in Elden Ring.

"Felled by King Morgott! Last of all kings."

Negations (or Absorptions)

The negation numbers are the % of your damage that gets blocked. For example, if a negation is 60, 40% of that damage by that type will go through and 60% will be negated. Bigger number = less damage. A negation of 100 means no damage goes through, and a negation of -100 mean the enemy takes 2x damage from that source. 0 means damage goes pretty much as is.


The resistance numbers are the buildup amount to trigger it. For example, if a resistance is 100 you must deal 100 points of the given buildup to trigger it. Note that these go down over time, and increase each time the effect procs. The values after the "/"s indicate the increased resistances after each successive proc.

Morgott, The Omen King Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Morgott, The Omen King:

  • For Melee users, stand a bit in front of his left leg from the outside, dodging behind it offers the best versatility in terms of  safety, damage and punishes
  • When Morgott spawns his Holy Hammer and goes for an Overhead Slam, put some distance between you both and roll into him, that usually forces Morgott to finish the combo with his Sword Slash, Triple Sword Holy Sword Spin into Swords Slam (Helicopter) and gives a huge punish window for tons of damage
  • Dodging behind Morgott when he does a Sword attack usually ends up with him doing a slash behind him and jumping away from the player
  • In Second Phase, weather changes to rain and arena gets covered with water making Lightning damage much better than Fire overall 
  • Suggested weapons:
  • Suggested spells:


Melee Users

At first, Morgott seems overwhelming and with no openings but knowing which attacks to punish depending on the size of the weapon and which to bait or dodge allows for optimal aggression against the boss.
Don't be scared to maintain aggression during the fight as his attacks have a delay in between that allow for punishes; the most notably punishable attacks being: After a riposte. After Morgott hops away from the player. On big recovery attacks such as the Hammer Swings, Hammer Slams if you roll behind him, The Bloodflame infused attacks in Phase 2 (All can be punished with a light attack or a charged safely depending on the weapon's speed). On Combo Finishers such as the Helicopter. Additionally Morgott also has very low poise so you can abuse the fact by casting Ash Of War: Glintblade Phalanx twice to keep staggering him and getting free damage with critical hits.

An Alternative playstyle would be maintaining distance and baiting out big attacks such as the Spear Throw which can be followed up by a huge leap with Morgott stabbing the ground with his sword and a holy spear, this attack allows for 2 charged attacks safely. Parrying is also a good option against Morgott that can synergize very nicely with dagger talisman for critical attacks.

Elemental Damage: Morgott has no Fire or Lightning damage negation. With a Strength build, you can substantially increase your damage against him by imbuing your weapon with a Fire-type Ash of War and using the Flame-Shrouding Cracked Tear. You can do the same with a Dexterity build by pairing a Lightning-type Ash of War with Lightning-Shrouding Cracked Tear.

Status Ailments: Morgott's resistances are relatively low, and if you can sneak in multiple hits between his attacks with power-stanced small weapons like Daggers or Curved Swords, you can inflict multiple status ailments very quickly. Look for Morgott's Holy Spear throw attack, and run towards his left side (your right) when he's winding it up. You won't even need to dodge, and this will give you a solid chunk chunk of unimpeded attack time. When he starts casting Holy Swords Rain, you can get up to 3 light attacks with a fast weapon before having to roll away to safety. Similarly, keep attacking him through his phase change: although he has much higher damage negation, he still builds up status effects. Roll towards him just as he starts to stand up straight to avoid being caught by his Holy blast and to buy yourself a few more seconds of attacking. Because Morgott is vulnerable to all status ailments but his resistances increase after each proc, triggering as many as possible is a good plan. For example, power-stancing a Frost Great Knife and a Scorpion's Stinger will build Frostbite, Hemorrhage, and Scarlet Rot simultaneously.


Magic and Ranged Users

 Maintaining good distance between you and Morgott is the key, he doesn't have many options when it comes to ranged attacks (Holy Daggers, Holy Spear and Holy Spear Charge or will try to walk towards you after he gets hit by a sorcery or an incantation) You can use super long ranged incantations such as Frenzied Burst and maintain a huge distance almost completely nullifying his moveset or spells that he can't react to like Night Comet (sorceries) or a non charged Lighting Spear (incantations). Drink Flasks during long wind up animations or when you're really far from the boss.

Morgott, The Omen King Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Holy Swords Rain Morgott spawns a holy sword in his left hand as well as holy swords in the air drawing a circle around himself and 5 lines each one being in fixed directions (1 in front of himself, two equally spaced out to his sides and two close ones behind him). This is a scripted attack at the 80% HP threshold This move has a big wind up so you can get a few attacks in before having to run away to safety, unlocking camera and looking a bit upwards helps with dodging the swords 
Tail Sweep When the target is behind him, Morgott will twist his tail in an attempt to hit them. Roll against the sweep direction or Jump the attack.
Cursed Explosion At the 60% HP Threshold, Attacking, Shackling, Parrying Morgott would instantly force the transition animation to second phase where Morgott stands in place with his sword stabbed to the ground, he then starts coughing for a bit before unleashing the omen curse, spawning geysers on the floor that are random and covering the arena with water You can safely attack Morgott until he begins coughing, at which point the safest strategy is to run away to avoid being hit by the blast. You can also roll towards him as soon as he begins standing up straight to push more damage. This is a good opportunity to heal or use ranged attacks to apply status ailments.
Holy Spear Throw Morgott spawns a holy spear and throws it towards you after a short delay.  When he starts pulling his arm back to throw, dodge to a side. If you're close enough you can completely dodge the attack by standing in front of his left leg.
Flying Sword Spear Stab Morgott leaps into the air stabbing the ground with his spear and sword. You can easily dodge this attack by running towards Morgott after a spear throw. You can also roll behind Morgott when he's at the apex of the jump (when he's closest to you)
Flying Hammer Slam Morgott leaps into the air spawning a holy hammer and slamming it into the ground You can outrun this attack or roll into Morgott as he's slamming to continue aggression.
Holy Spear Charge Creates a holy spear and after a second, he starts charging directly at his target

Although this attack looks like a mid/long range only attack, Morgott can actually queue it in close range too, delay the roll until he starts moving towards you if that happens to avoid getting clipped by it.
You can Roll through this attack (Forward Right),  or run away from the attack

Rolling through the spear has 2 outcomes
- If you’re in front of the boss he’ll do a Sword Attack 
- If you’re behind the boss he’ll do a Sword Hammer Horizontal Swing

Spear Poke Morgott pulls out a holy spear for a short period of time poking you before following up with a Diagonal Sword Attack if you’re within range for one or idling if you're not He pulls the spear backwards a bit before doing the attack, roll the moment he pulls it back
Holy Daggers

There are multiple instances where Morgott spawns Holy daggers: 

1: Spawns a dagger and does two quick slashes in front of him to start a combo 

2: Creates and throws three daggers in a fan formation up to two times. 

3: Can spawn a dagger, does one slash and then perform a retreating jump throwing 3 daggers forming a fan towards the player. 

4: As a punish for the players after Holy Sword Slash Vertical Sword Slam if they're standing in front of him. After a Sword Front Flip

1: Roll behind his left leg 

2: Roll through the daggers or to a side

3: Roll through the first dagger and wait for him to throw the daggers after jumping away and roll through them 

4: Roll twice behind his left leg instantly 
Holy Sword Slash Vertical Sword Slam Morgott hops to your left side or does a backhand Diagonal sword slam before spawning a holy sword in his left hand and doing a quick slash followed by a Vertical sword slam that ends the combo. Dodge the sword and move towards his left side and only attack after he slams him to avoid the oncoming sword attack. This is a good attack to punish.

Attacking before he slams the regular sword can get you hit by the sword hitbox.

Dodging the final part of the attack into Morgott will in turn make him spawn a Holy Dagger and slash twice as a punishment for the player.
Spinning Slashes Morgott Swings his sword diagonally from left to right quickly before spawning a holy sword in his left hand and doing a triple diagonal spin mid air and slamming both swords on the ground (there is a tiny delay here, Holy Sword goes down first then Regular Sword). There are multiple ways of dodging this attack; 
Either by rolling into the first sword slash, and rolling twice around Morgott (one forward left, one forward right)

Rolling away and getting back in after the slams.

Rolling the first sword slash and running around him in a counter clockwise direction for roughly one second before letting go of the sprint button

*Strafing the sword slash by going right then running left for a second and stopping the sprint (Advanced Dodge)

This attack is a combo finisher and is great for punishes
Gliding Slide Morgott dashes towards your left then performs a sword slash as he’s dashing from left to right. Time your roll when Morgott raises the sword slightly. Dodging with the attack allows for a rolling light attack on most weapons
Cartwheel Morgott does a flip and positions himself behind you, lunging for a second before jumping back through your body slashing it as he goes. To time this roll, dodge when you can’t see his right hand and when you see the sword above his shoulder.
Rolling with him will make him opt to one of 3 options, Helicopter, Sword Poke, or Bloodflame Stab (Only in Phase 2)
Rolling away from him will make him opt for  a spear throw, daggers throw, or a spear poke

Sword Hammer Horizontal Swing Morgott spawns a holy hammer and rests it on his shoulder for a second before doing a sword Slash from right to left followed simultaneously by a hammer swing. Notice when Morgott Raises his sword slightly, that’s the tell on when you should queue the roll. 
Dodging into Morgott gives one of 2 different follow ups, Overhead Hammer Slam or Any of the Sword Attacks.
You can tell this attack is going to happen if Morgott points his sword INWARDS. Not to be mistaken with the HORIZONTAL SWORD SLASH, OVERHEAD HAMMER SLAM Variation Where he points his sword OUTWARDS as they have a similar starting animation.
Horizontal Sword Slash, Overhead Hammer Slam Morgott spawns a holy hammer and rests it on his shoulder for a second before doing a sword slash from right to left followed by a delayed overhead hammer slam. Dodge in as he raises the sword then either run behind him and dodge the hammer, or perform a jumping attack on his back to dodge the shockwave and not get clipped by the hammer hitbox
Overhead Hammer Slam Morgott pulls his left arm all the way to the back before summoning a holy hammer raising it over his head and slamming the ground creating shockwave To get the maximum value of this attack, maintain a bit of distance so you can roll into him and bait out the Helicopter attack
Sword + Hammer Spin Morgott spawns a hammer in his right hand, tries to close in on you and then starts spinning twice ending it with a big hammer diagonal slam. To dodge this attack, sprint backwards and the moment you see his sword starting to move, roll away.

This attack is pretty tough to dodge depending on your position as he can do a quick hop to catch up to you before starting the animation. Thankfully it has multiple attacks that signal that it's going to happen. Most important one being the Swords Rain. As soon as you see him spawning the hammer when you’re away from him start sprinting backwards to avoid getting into these situations.

This attack can happen as a follow up to Spear Throw, out of idle (only in phase 2), or rarely after Double Daggers Throw.

If he pulls out a hammer out of idle (Melee Range) in phase 2 DO NOT GO IN, roll away twice instantly
Cursed-Blood Slice (Slam) Morgott raises his sword in the air infusing it with bloodflame before doing a heavy slam on the ground creating an exploding trail where the sword hit the ground. To get the full value of this attack; stand near his left leg and attack (preferably without lock on so you can keep your positioning), the Slam should completely miss you.
Cursed-Blood Slice (Chase) Morgott raises his sword in the air infusing it with bloodflame, but this time dashing towards the player doing a big diagonal slash in front of him followed by a small twirl and a second slash in the opposite direction of the first slash leaving bloodflame trails that explode and linger for a second or so after each slash. To Dodge this attack, wait until he starts sprinting towards you then roll twice into Morgott, with a slight delay between each roll
Cursed-Blood Thrust Morgott pulls back and infuses his sword with bloodflame before dashing towards the player doing a thrust on the way that grabs the player if caught by it, he then will raise the target in the air with his sword before throwing them to the ground. To dodge this attack, simply roll into Morgott the moment he raises his arm a bit to stab you, or if you’re close enough stick to his left side (that way you can get extra punishes without having to worry about dodging)
Rapid Armament Change Rapidly begins attacking with his sword and dagger, before switching to his holy sword, performing more attacks, and finally summoning his hammer, performing a spinning attack and slamming it on the ground. (This attack unlocks at the 30% HP threshold and can be a punish to getting guardbroken by certain attacks) You can dodge the attack by rolling behind Morgott either from the left or the right
You can dodge it by running behind Morgott then backing off

Morgott, The Omen King Lore, Notes & Other Trivia

  • Voice Actor: Anthony Howell
  • Morgott is the one of the few bosses that survive the boss battle upon defeat. After winning the battle, the player can approach Morgott (he will be either at the place of defeat or behind the Elden Throne) and listen to the Omen King. After a short monologue about the inevitable failure of the Tarnished, he falls unconscious and later dies as his body fades to gold dust during Godfrey’s introduction, likely symbolizing that he has returned to the Erdtree.
  • Morgott is the twin brother of Mohg, Lord of Blood. Morgott does not mention Mohg as a traitor, likely due to the fact that they were both imprisoned underground, and thus Mohg lacks a seat at the Elden Throne.
  • Unlike Mohg, he looks comparably more human than his Omen brother, which shows that he despised his true nature and wish to leave it behind.
  • Morgott is one of the three sons of Godfrey and Marika, but was shunned, shackled and imprisoned deep below the capital for his Omen nature. Some time during the Shattering he broke free from his underground prison, became the king of Leyndell as the Shrouded Lord and created the second identity of Margit, so he could aid the Leyndell forces in the field without revealing his Omen nature to his subjects.
  • He founded the Night's Cavalry to hunt down champions, knights and tarnished that grew too ambitious and threatened the Erdtree.
  • The Holy Weapons he summons are the Erdsteel Dagger, TreespearGiant-Crusher, and the Carian Knight's Sword.
  • If parried successfully, the Cursed-Blood Slice will not deal any damage to the player, however, Morgott’s attack animation will not be interrupted and it will not count towards the three parries that are needed to riposte him.
  • In Phase 2, the arena becomes covered in shallow water, giving both the player and Morgott +20 fire upgrades elden ring wiki guide 30Fire absorption and -20 lightning upgrades elden ring wiki guide 30Lightning absorption.
  • If the player manage to trigger change while Morgott is in air, there is some chance that phase transition will be skipped
    • Morgott will still get all 2nd phase attacks.
    • Ground retains old look, no extra dialogue, no reduced damage moment
  • To summon someone for this boss who has already defeated Maliketh, the Black Blade and therefore triggered Leyndell, Ashen Capital, the summoned player must use their Small Golden Effigy and they must have interacted with the Summoning Pool near the fog before the capital was made ashen.
  • Known as Morgott, Prince of the Omen in 1.00 version of the game
  • Bug: Sometimes, phase transition does not change how battle arena looks




Graceless Tarnished.

What is thy business with these thrones?

Ahh... Godrick the Golden. The twin prodigies, Miquella and Malenia. General Radahn. Praetor Rykard. Lunar Princess Ranni.

Wilful traitors, all.

Thy kind are all of a piece. Pillagers. Emboldened by the flame of ambition.

Have it writ upon thy meagre grave:

Felled by King Morgott! Last of all kings.

During Fight:

§Phase 2 transition:


The thrones... stained by my curse... Such shame I cannot bear.

Thy part in this shall not be forgiven.

Defeating player:

Put these foolish ambitions to rest.

During Phase 2:

May the curse seep to thy very soul.

An apt reward for thy brash ambition (1.00 version)

§After Fight:

Upon talking to Morgott once:

Tarnished, thou'rt but a fool.

The Erdtree wards off all who deign approach.

We are... we are all forsaken.

None may claim the title of Elden Lord.

Upon talking to Morgott twice:

Thy deeds shall be met with failure, just as I.

      cool boss, wish he wasn't as durable as a toothpick though. I entered the capital under leveled and this guy died to around a minute. but over all i liked the boss.

        This one is definitely not my favorite or the most spectacular fight in the game, but it is certainly one of the cleanest and most well-constructed if not the cleanest and most well-constructed.

        Morgott is fast and ferocious but it is never impossible to counterattack, regardless of the type of build you use you will always find good response windows and also many attacks have a long recovery time to allow you to recover the damage that you were perhaps unable to inflict because of the need to heal yourself.

        Plus the OST is fantastic.

        In my last attempt I used a serpent bone blade and a poisonous nagakiba, plus a few spark aromatics here and there, just to deal some elemental damage.

          "If parried successfully, the Cursed-Blood Slice will not deal any damage to the player, however, Morgott’s attack animation will not be interrupted and it will not count towards the three parries that are needed to riposte him"

          Yeah, 'bout that. Apparently, you don't actually parry the attack. Rather, the parry animation makes you duck away from the swing. This is why Morgott's attack animation is not interrupted and it doesn't counts towards three parries needed to riposte him - because you didn't parried him.

            One thing i love about this guy is his parry resistance. For all other enemies, a parry is a complete stop in their advance and pauses the fight in your favor, numbing the game down to pressing L2 and R1 constantly, but when the enemy has parry resistance, you are forced to play the game in between parries, making for a way more fun experience

              his Margit form is actually harder than this, Margit has way too many unnatural delay attacks, meanwhile he as Morgott doesn't has that many delays and didn't combo that hard.

                *Extremely loud lip smack*
                Ummm… akshually this boss is way to easy.
                *Uncomfortably long inhale*
                I beet him at level 713 which I got from farming at mogks palace using dual greatswords while my friend used comet, and…
                *Uncomfortable long inhale + lips smack*
                It was super easy. I think fromsoft should fix there game. Worst boss

                  Most of the complaints about his supposedly low HP stem from compulsive min-maxers and completionists. It's really annoying. No, the game shouldn't be balanced around your OCD. And when grinding doesn't give you an advantage, you complain anyway like you do with Mountaintops, Farum Azula and Elphael.

                    Not a very useful info probably, but his grab, dagger throws and spear throw can be jumped. Sword poke and horizontal sword swing, the one that comes from your right and Morgott's left and is strictly horizontal, also can be jumped, but only at a certain distance. You can't jump them if you are hugging Morgott, you need to be some distance away from him. The spear charge, I think you can avoid it by jumping sideways, but the timing is rather tricky apparently. Hammer + sword attacks except maybe one cannot be jumped, you'll still get hit by the hammer even if there's a way to jump the sword. I don't think that the spear poke is jumpable either. I might be wrong, maybe I just jump too late.

                    I'll probably do some more testing later. I want to test sword swing into delayed hammer attack and the spear poke, both of which Morgott refuses to do when I try to bait them out. Sword part of the swing into delayed hammer might be jumpable I imagine, but probably only at a certain distance like the horizontal swing and sword poke, and you would still have enough time to roll the hammer. Though, frankly, if it's jumpable only at a certain distance, it might as well be unjumpable. In my experience, this is sort of a gap closer move and you most usually end up hugging Morgott when he does it and you don't have enough time to gain distance before he swings. Spear poke has a good chance of being jumpable, but I constantly fail to actually test it. Not only Morgott stubbornly refuses to do it, but when he does it, I react roll that crap and have to waltz around him for another five or so minutes before he decides to do it again. There is a good chance of it being jumpable, but I do have to say that there's also a chance that it just comes out too fast for the jump i-frames to do something. But again, maybe I just jump too late. I'll try to test it further later.

                      Least bs fight in the game, i didn't get stun locked, i didn't get insta killed, it felt fun and fair, and then right after, you end up at giants' mountaintop, and there's a total of one actual new boss...

                        Morgott is different from other bosses, he's just built different. He stands his ground and does not and will not accept any enemy he will ever encounter. While other opponents the tarnished has faced (such as malenia) will acknowledge your strength skill, while does guy's last line is legit: "Thou'rt but a fool".

                          He should've had way more health, i always end up beating him super quick, which is a shame because it's one of my favorite fights.

                            God, I love how he flips around like a madman in his fight, that combined with his cloak reminds me of Yoda fighting and I’m so here for it.

                              Half the comments are complaining about him being too hard, the other half thinks he's too easy and wants him buffed.

                              Just get a +10 and crush him, he isn't good enough to waste your time before fire giant and all the other more interesting bosses.

                                'They deeds shall meet with failure' seems like a bad translation. A deed is something that is already done. I.e. it succeeded in happening. Anyone know what is said in the Japanese version?

                                  giving this guy 80 poise is a crime. with some weapons you can prevent this guy from even going phase 2 by stunlocking him.

                                    he has sh*t tracking on his attacks, so choosing to roll into his right helps tremendously in the fight. on some attacks like his bloodflame slash you can even just strafe to his right, wait until his arm stops moving, and wail away for huge damage while he hits the air like the old man he is

                                      I see that everyone loves this boss so I'm sure I'll get hate for saying this, but having beaten the game a bunch of times, including underlevelled runs, I just think he's lame. I don't like the arbitrarily slow attacks. If he can swing his weapon at escape velocity one sec there's no reason he needs to move like a rickety old man who can barely lift his stick the next second. Bro takes a whole 2 seconds to lift the hammer over his head and then slams it faster than you can react roll. It's just corny

                                        If you're around lvl ~85 with a decent +14 or so weapon this boss isn't gonna be that hard as a lot of the movesets you're probably familliar with from Margit. Bro's cool af tho

                                                  Omen's are cursed with excrement, first of all they're locked in the sewers, then there's the weird obsession with excrement in descriptions of things pertaining to Mohg, then Morgott literally releases his bowels in the middle of a fight and floods the battlefield in diarrhea in the battle with him. Covering the thrones in his curse. Finally you've got the Omen obsessed being known as dung eater. There's just way too much mention of excrement to be a coincidence.

                                                    why does the morgott cutscene no longer have the fire effect, it was a cool and the fact that he does it while he is saying "Emboldened by the flame of ambition" is kinda ironic. though if you don't know what i'm talking about look it up and come back.

                                                      I beat it on my first try with my level 130 dex character and +23 frost uchigatana But this probably happened with some luck. I hit Morgott non-stop as he moved to the second phase, and he didn't hit me until he died. I beat it before I could even see the second phase. When I read the comments, I was sad to see that it was a very fun boss fight. I wish it was a harder boss with higher health. I probably missed all the fun.

I can't see why else would the boss that has a great rune that increase hp have so low health unless it was for a lore reason. (I really hope I'm wrong and he gets a buff though)

People constantly praise Lady Maria even tho she isn't that diffucult herself and is on the same level of difficulty as Morgott it's unfair man

                                                                      • Anonymous

The flashy combos, creative attacks, the agression and flow, the lore and the history between Morgott and the Tarnished make this a top 5 boss for me. Difficulty isn't everything, people constanly praise Lady Maria even tho she isn't that hard, but they **** on Morgott for it even tho he is on the same level of difficulty as Maria. It's unfair man.

                                                                                          I beat Mohg in one try. Malenia took three tries. Morgott took me eight, the most in my run.

                                                                                          It's so weird. Everyone here thinks he's incredibly easy, but Morgott always gives me the most trouble of any boss in my NG+ playthroughs. I think it's the sheer dizzying number of combo chains he has; it just overloads my brain. I swear he finishes a gigantic 15 hit combo, I avoid it, and when I go in for a hit, he immediately follows up with a frame one combo faster than my attack animation.

                                                                                          Any advice to help me "git gud" at this boss? I don't want to cheese him, but it's getting really tempting at this point.
