Morgott, The Omen King, also known as Morgott the Grace Given, is a Boss in Elden Ring. This Elden Ring Morgott, The Omen King Guide features boss locations, tips, strategies and videos on how to defeat Morgott easily, as well as boss stats and lore for Morgott.

Morgott is the true identity of Margit, the Fell Omen, and the self-proclaimed "Last of All Kings". He is found in Leyndell, Royal Capital. When he and his twin brother Mohg were born, they were imprisoned deep in the Subterranean Shunning-Grounds for being born as Omen royalty. Despite how it treated him, Morgott still loved the Golden Order, and he defended the capital when his fellow demigods invaded during the Shattering. His loyalty was unfortunately not enough for him to be considered worthy of the Elden Throne, however.

This boss must be defeated in order to access the Mountaintops of the Giants and finish the game. Despite being under a different name, Margit's Shackle still works with Morgott as they are one and the same. Be sure to make use of the item to stun Morgott up to three times in his first phase. He drops the Remembrance of the Omen King and Morgott's Great Rune when defeated.

Bosses are unique and challenging Enemies that can be encountered all over the Lands Between. Shardbearers drop their own unique Great Rune and Remembrance capable of being transformed into powerful Weapons, Spells, Ashes of War, and Talismans for the player.

 

 Have it writ upon thy meagre grave:

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

Morgott, the Omen King Combat information

Negations (or Absorptions)

Values in brackets correspond to Phase 2.
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 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:

 

Melee Users

Melina + Jump Attack: Since Morgott is extremely mobile, he will leap around the arena and rarely be in one place for more than a few seconds. He also does not stagger easily. This makes landing successive attacks rather difficult for pure melee builds. Rather than memorizing his patterns, you can use Melina and a spirit ash with high defense (such as Skeletal Militiaman) to keep him occupied. The distraction will create openings for jumping attacks, which are doubly useful because they can help close distance. The ideal setup is power stancing two weapons and using Claw Talisman and Raptor's Black Feathers to maximize the damage of each jump attack. Since you won't have the opportunity to hit him often, make sure each attack counts.

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 Blade Rain, keep attacking him and just accept that you'll be hit by the blades. 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

SorceriesAfter entering the fog gate, Morgott will approach you slowly, which creates a good opportunity to first cast Terra Magica, and then use Renalla's Full Moon or Ranni's Dark Moon up to two times. This push him towards using Holy Blade Rain, which is a perfect time to unleash a barrage of Comets. During his phase change, you can either heal or build status ailments with ranged spells like Glintstone Icecrag.

IncantationsLightning Spear is a good choice, since its quick casting speed can keep up with Morgott's fast movement.

Morgott, The Omen King Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Holy Blade Rain A myriad of holy blades float above Morgott, before continuously raining down in a star formation, cutting off parts of the arena. Morgott will usually do this once he reaches about 80% health. The swords spread out in a cross formation centered on Morgott, so stay away from him and look up to avoid the arms of the cross. If you have ranged attacks, this is a good time to use them.
Tail Swipe When the target is behind him, Morgott will twist his tail in an attempt to hit them. Roll backwards.
Cursed Explosion At about 50% health, Morgott staggers and takes reduced damage, before yelling and releasing a powerful burst of energy. Liquid will start to erupt around the arena from the ground, causing damage. 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 Creates a holy spear and throws it forward. Has a very long windup. May follow up with a sword swing. If you're close enough, you can run underneath the arm with the spear and safely get in some attacks without needing to roll. Otherwise, roll towards the spear. If you're hit by the spear and are close to Morgott, do not roll away immediately, as you will be hit by his follow-up sword attack.
Holy Spear Creates a holy spear and charges directly at his target

Another variation has him jumping towards his target and impaling them with his spear and sword.
Roll to the sides. This attack has a late hitbox and can hit you even if you think you’ve dodged.
Holy Dagger Creates and throws three daggers in a fan formation up to two times. 
He may also use it to quickly slash and retreat during a combo. 

May initiate his Dashing Combo after throwing once or twice.
Roll forwards or to the sides. He will usually use this when you are healing.
Holy Sword Creates a holy sword, slashing once or twice before following up with slash from his sword

A variation has him rapidly slashing upwards with both swords before slamming both on the ground.
Dodge the sword and move around him to avoid the oncoming sword attack. This is a good attack to punish.
Dashing Combo Dashes to the left, slashing once, moving to the right, before slashing once again. He may also stab forward and follow up with two spinning slashes.

Another variation has him cartwheeling, slashing once while dodging, before creating a sword and performing a spinning slash with both swords.
It’s recommended to not stick close to him while he dashes, otherwise he may hit you with a follow up attack.
Holy Hammer Creates a holy hammer, slamming it on the ground. May do a follow-up attack by performing a spinning slash. Roll to either side or back away. Be careful not to get with by the sword, or else you may get stunned and hit by the hammer.
Holy Hammer Combo Creates a holy hammer, dashes towards the player, and spins while leaping into the air, then slams with both the hammer on his left hand and the sword on his right hand. Roll away. When Morgott slams, roll to the left to avoid getting hit by the sword.
Holy Hammer Slam Creates a holy hammer, jumps into the air, and slams down near the player with both the sword and the hammer. Roll forward or backward.
Cursed-Blood Slice Lifts sword above his head, conjuring it with blood, before bringing it down, creating an exploding trail of bloodflame.

If the target is too far away, he will quickly dash forward and slash around him twice, also creating exploding trails.
Get around him. This is a good chance to hit him or heal while he misses the attack. Try not to get too far away.
Cursed-Blood Thrust Conjures blood around his sword before thrusting forward, impaling the target and throwing them. Roll forward or to the sides.
Weapon-Swap Combo Rapidly begins attacking with his sword and dagger, becore switching to his holy sword, performing more attacks, and finally summoning his hammer, performing a spinning attack and slamming it on the ground. Simply get behind him or run away from this attack, as it is devastating if you get caught in it.

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 unconcious 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, shackeled 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, whom he earnestly loved.
  • 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.
  • If the player manage to trigger change while Morgott is in air, there is some chance that phase transition will be skipped
    • Strangely, Morgott will still get all 2nd phase attacks.
    • Difference: Ground retains old look, no extra dialogue, no reduced damage moment
  • Bug: Sometimes, phase transition does not change how battle arena looks

 

Dialogue

Introduction:

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:

Hrghraah!

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.

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.

          really liked fighting this dude, i died many times to morgott because i am not that good at the game but i didnt mind the design of this fight was almost perfect in my opinion

            Fought this guy twice now. Once with shield and dismounter, then with just a single bandit curved sword 2 handed. I was a faith build, that was a cold sword at a lower level than my main flame art bandit curved sword. No summons.
            This fight is far too easy.
            The spirit of godfrey, immediately outside, gave me way more trouble on both runs.
            The omens in the subteranian shunning ground are an absolute nightmare in comparison. Such a shame, i really like how they changed his moveset up, and his sass. I just wish it was something like a challenge to beat him. Next time, im gonna have to get daedicars woe before this boss fight i think.

              To the comment below me, no you didn’t my guy it’s not possible. You’re confusing getting one from Godfrey Golden Shade, with Morgott. Godfrey shade is the boss right before Morgott.

                Wish they took away Malenia's lifesteal and give it to Morgott, would have been much more enjoyable and harder fight with him, and much more fair fight with Malenia

                  Definitely a boss that becomes wayyyyy harder if trying to solo him, with his full aggro on you it can be hard to safely drink a potion even

                    Somehow had wayyy more trouble with Margit than Morgott.

                    Probably because I kind of know how the game works now. Melina and mimic tear did wonders.

                      Trying to solo him was a nightmare as a colossal user, particularly the Godslayer's Greatsword. I had to resort to mimic year and Melina like the degenerate that I am :(

                        I like to think that he injected his muscles with petroleum jelly and when you defeat him, he just deflates.

                          His resistance to Lightning damage seems to change in phase 2; Bolt of Gransax WA doing ~800 damage in phase 1, and then just over 1,000 in phase 2. I think it's because of the rain in the arena that starts during the phase transition.

                            Honestly not that bad of a boss, pretty much just margit with a few new tricks and higher damage. Your practice beating margit, who you have presumably beaten to get this far will serve you very well. the godfrey shade with infinite poise and two shot attacks was way more difficult.

                                    Faith Dex char and my strategy was:
                                    1 - Get bloodflame blade, an upgraded cross naginata, mimic and repeating thrust.
                                    2 - At the beginning, summon melina, bloodflame blade and mimic (keep the god seal on the other hand)
                                    3 - Roll Attack or light attack if you're confident avoiding his hits on the first phase.
                                    4 (IMPORTANT) - If he aggros melina or mimic, use repeating thrust as much as you can and be prepared to roll his attacks after that.
                                    5 - Make HIM BLEED. You can easily make him bleed 2 times in this fight, maybe 3 if you get consistnt hits.
                                    (If you're lucky, your mimic will also cast bloodflame bleed.)
                                    Tips: Keep your mimic alive as much as you can because he'll help alot on bleeding build up. If he summons those raining swords, go far away and attract his aggro with a spell (lightining or anything else that you can long range him). If you let him fight your summons while swords are dropping, they're likely to get killed in no time.

                                        Correct me if I’m wrong—
                                        Omens are cursed that they aren’t able to return to the Erdtree when they die and are shunned for that. If Morgott returned to the Erdtree when fading to gold dust, does that mean that he pushed through Omen nature?

                                          I think they shadow buffed him, before you needed 2 parryes to riposte him, now you need 3 and he has at least 3 punish attack variations for successful parry...

                                            I try not to read about boss battles before I do them at least once on my own. In this case, I heard about Morgott anyway, and assumed he'd be the toughest boss I'd fought yet. Instead, it was really, really easy. I'm fairly overlevelled (128) for the area. I have 33 Vigor, 33 Mind, and 80 Int. +9 Carian Regal Scepter in main hand, and switch between either Staff of Loss or Meteorite in the off-hand. Also have +10 Mimic. Yeah. I'm not bragging here, just pointing out how grossly imbalanced you can make a character here without consciously trying. I did full Sorcery in Dark Souls 3, and it didn't make any major boss this easy.

                                            I also didn't use the NPC summons.

                                            So, first thing I do is drink my invulnerability + heal over time Physick before going through the boss door. Then I summon the Mimic. Then I heal. So no attacks from me during the opening phase. I take first aggro, and get hit by some kind of ranged attack with multiple projectiles. I run and heal (only 2 heal pots left now). Mimic finally takes aggro. I start hitting Morgott with Rock Sling but found it mediocre. Switched to Night Comet, ended the fight without getting hit again. Mimic survived with about 25% HP remaining.

                                            Didn't use Terra Magica. Don't use any magic boosting armor (fashion souls only), only light armor and medium load. Talismans were Blessed Dew, Radagon Icon, and Magic Scorpion Charm.

                                              Morgott dropped a Talisman Pouch, although I defested Margit, the Fell Omen. So I got one pouch from Margit and one pouch from Morgott. :)

                                                He was worth more than 90k, why did they nerf the rune count? 120k seemed fitting for the King of Leyndell, he is worth only 10k more than Goldfrey.

                                                  Are the Omen twins somewhat related to the Crucible? Morgott has a tail like of the crucible knight incantations and Mohg during his second phase has wing like the winged misbegotten. Makes you wonder what Godwyn looked in his full glory.

                                                    Ngl think I might have accidentally over leveled for this fight. I heard he was tough as, I came in with melania and used a +9 mimic tear. Kinda wrecked him. Turns out bleed is broken against bosses that aren’t immune

                                                      Literal gigachad. Dude gets put in ugly jail for his entire life, and then his family just goes ****ing crazy. And he’s like “guess I’m free” and decides to hold down the fort while everyone is off doing stupid bullshit.

                                                        This was a really fun fight! Just beat him last night for the first time. Only sad it was over a bit too soon (or maybe that's because I'd just spent about two hours dying over and over to the Blackblade Kindred/Gargoyle outside Bestial Sanctum before finally killing it lol - meanwhile Morgott took me only four or five tries). Way more fun than the Margit fight in Stormveil for sure - probably because I have better weapons and incants now. Many good openings for attack, though the second phase can still be quite chaotic with some long combos.

                                                        Just a note: He dropped 120000 runes for me on NG, not 90000 (I fought him without summons, so I assume the 90000 is because of the "penalty" / rune reduction you get if you summon other players or NPCs like Melina? I've seen this "penalty" mentioned on other bosses like Magma Wyrm Makar).

                                                          I've only just now beat him. I had it all planned out, cerulean hidden tear and opaline hard tear in my physik and ekzykes's decay in a spell slot plan was to hit him with that for as long as the physik lasted. I crossed the fog gate and it all went out of the window. I didn't even remember to use the shackle.

                                                          It was a really good boss fight, I enjoyed it much more than at stormveil, melina and the +7 raya lucaria soldier spirit ash both lasted nearly the whole fight. This is a proper From Software boss fight, massive improvement on the ass hat boss at the bottom of the shunning grounds.

                                                            Not much point parrying him. Not only are his timings tricky even with ashes that increase your frames like Carian Retaliation of Golden Parry, he takes three of them to stagger. You'll get more damage in the same amount of time just fighting him normally.

                                                              From the trailer where he puts the crown on the Elden Throne, to us having to fight a golden shade of Godfrey before the Erdtree, you can really tell he respected and loved his dad. And as we see in the cutscene before we fight Godfrey, when he cradles his sons corpse, the feeling is reciprocal. I would like to think that he had nothing to do with his sons banishment to the sewers of Leyndell. Morgott comes off as a gnarled, bitter old man, but also intimidating, being the hardest challenge for a new tarnished faces in Limgrave. He is competent fighter, even besting Radahn, evidenced by the beginning game cutscene. But really, he is tender hearted. “Though born one of the graceless Omen, Morgott took it upon himself to become the Erdtree's protector. He loved not in return, for he was never loved, but nevertheless, love it he did”.

                                                                I was going to try fighting him fairly first, as I did all of the major bosses. Then I saw Melina's summon sign. I admit I'm a sentimental fool, but damn, there's just no way I wouldn't summon her. Also, I took notice immediately that she looks/feels very similar to Millicent, especially the one that invaded me.

Stupid huge move pool, crazy-as-hell mix ups that are hard to predict, inconsistent rhythm between strikes combined with the fact he's just so damn mobile all the time makes this fight absurdly chaotic.

                                                                  • The light sword attack is definitely not the Carian Knight Sword. The blades in the attack are straight, the Carian Knight's Sword blade angles inward near the hilt. It's more likely the base Dagger looking at the proportion of the crossguard to blade, as well as the diameter of the handle and the round parts of the crossguard. I can see how you can get Carian Knight Sword, but look a little closer and you can clearly see the blade doesn't match.

                                                                    • Anonymous

His moveset is just better in general, and i play without health, so there's little difference in damage between her and him.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            • Anonymous

The intro will be something like “ foul tarnished I live again and have you met my twin mohg yet?”

If you weapons do any status with his resistances you will proc at least once taking a large chunk out (unless you are using poison for some reason ) . With his absorption you would hit a lot harder as well and two R2 and you get a critical as well . This fight is over very quickly before he could even show most of his moves . This fight still thought if you get reckless thought but if you know what you are doing ( you should because you fought margit ) this fight becomes really easy

Forgot to summon Melania (which apparently was an option), summoned Mimic which was completely unnecessary, got him down to half health with a single Azul and used his transition animation to land the second, killing him.

                                                                                          Came here to see what I missed.

Pins him to the ground so you can hit him with your biggest attack. You can use it up to three times. Second, and most importantly, it only works in the *first* half of the fight. I used it once and was like "oh cool" then my second try was after he went in to phase 2, and he just snickered at me.

It’s just he has a very similar moveset to Margit who you’ve already fought twice by that point so you know the openings well. It’s also like a validation that you’ve gotten better at the game since fighting Margit which I find really cool personally. Because by this point you’ll have fought other tough bosses and got the combat of the game down more than at the very beginning as well.

                                                                                                That’s not to say he’s a pushover and he’s such a fun yet honest battle. I also thematically really like a big part of his battle is you showing off how far you’ve come since fighting him as Margit

                                                                                                    Get in, buff up, summon(ignore melina). Start the fight with the shackle right as rot doggo starts attacking, rather than when you're ready. Once he's down, spam him with punches, should get a bleed or two. Make sure to save the next shackle use for when he starts raining swords, as that cancels the attack and makes sure rot doggo is safe(if he doesn't do it at all and kills rot doggo, just restart).

                                                                                                    Second one should be enough to let you drop him to phase 2. After that, just run away- rot doggo will die, but he'll have dropped some scarlet rot on Morgott beforehand, which will last enough to kill him.

That speaks volumes about his complexes. I know a lot of people really like this character, but I feel like many of his actions were influenced by nothing more than sheer envy and resentment.

Could probably have done it solo with more practice except it gets REALLY hectic last 25% or so of health, with very limited opportunities to heal. Summoning a distracting ghost like the 5 shielded skeletons might be needed to get breathing space for that final bit. fun fight!

If his stagger meter fills just as he is meant to enter his second phase, The phase transition animation will not happen. He will enter the second phase but the floor will not be covered in liquid. geysers will still erupt out of nothing though.

Either parry or dodge forward or backwards instead.
