Radagon of the Golden Order is a Boss in Elden Ring. This Elden Ring Radagon of the Golden Order Guide features boss locations, tips, strategies and videos on how to defeat Radagon easily, as well as boss stats and lore for Radagon.

Radagon is a tall, fractured god wielding the hammer that shattered the Elden Ring, and is found in the Elden Throne. He was previously married to Rennala, but became Queen Marika's consort after Godfrey was exiled from the Lands Between. Completing Brother Corhyn & Goldmask's quest to a certain point reveals that he is the "other half" of Queen Marika. Despite being of one body, the two do not share the same will, as evident from Radagon attempting to repair the Elden Ring after Marika had shattered it.

This boss is NOT optional as players must defeat him to reach the end of Elden Ring. As with many endgame bosses, Weapons, Incantations, and Spirit Ashes capable of inflicting Black Flame are highly recommended as they deal damage over time based on the boss' maximum HP. Be aware that depleting his health completely immediately takes you into the cutscene leading to the final boss fight - Elden Beast. If you die to the Elden Beast, you are required to fight Radagon again before reaching it.

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.

 

 As the husband of Rennala of Caria, the red-haired Radagon studied sorcery, and as the husband of Queen Marika, he studied incantations.
Thus did the hero aspire to be complete.

Radagon of the Golden Order Combat Information

  • Health: NG (13339), NG+ (13353), NG++ (14688), NG+3 (15356), NG+4 (16023), NG+5 (17359), NG+6 (18026), NG+7 (18694)
  • Deals Strike Damage, Holy Damage.
  • Can block spells and throwable items with very high damage reduction (all damage types). Reduces status buildup as well.
    • He can use his "shield arm" to block melee attacks as well, but this will happen only on accident (if Radagon is attacked during blocking a range attack).
  • Parriable: Yes (Regular, non-charged melee attacks only. It also only provides an opportunity for riposte on every 3rd parry)
  • Can be poise broken. Poise: 120
  • Particularly affected by offensive Godskin Incanatations

 Upon defeat, a cutscene will play and the fight against the Elden Beast will begin.

 

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 are 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.

Radagon of the Golden Order Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Radagon of the Golden Order:

 

Melee Users

At the beginning of the fight, you can run toward him and safely make an attack or two (depending on weapon speed).

Radagon is vulnerable to poise damage. If you're consistent about applying it, then he can be poise broken 3 times in this fight, giving you a much-needed break to reapply buffs, drink flasks, or stack more damage. Heavy thrusting swords like Dragon King's Cragblade can guard counter quickly, which is useful since taking advantage of his openings is much more difficult with slower weapons like Bloodhound's Fang. Most of his moves have long recovery time, which will let you get in a jumping heavy attack or charged attack.

Use Godskin magics, like Black Flame Blade. As stated in the Godskin Prayerbook, Godskin incantations were created to kill Gods such as Radagon.

The biggest melee threat in Radagon's arsenal is his grab. When his arm starts glowing, he starts readying a lunge grab, which has limited tracking and a generous hitbox. In testing, this move killed from full health at 50 Vigor, using Lionel's Set and damage reduction talismans. His grab has a medium lunge that can be outrun. Begin sprinting away as he starts his grab, and it will never hit you. Alternatively, his grab can be reliably dodged by rolling into him.

Recommended talismans for melee users: Dragoncrest Greatshield Talisman, Haligdrake Talisman, Green Turtle Talisman. This combo will let you tank a few of his hits with as little chip damage as possible. He'll often hit you even if you roll past him, thanks to his backswing, so it's important to keep as much health and stamina as possible to follow up on his openings. The Crimson Seed Talisman will stretch each flask further in this marathon of a final boss.

Magic and Ranged Users

At the beginning of the fight, you can hit him with two fast- or medium-casting spells (although sometimes he parries the second), or one slow-casting spell.

When fighting Radagon at range, there are two major threats - maybe three. The first is his big ground slam. This is easily identified by him leaping into the air and hovering for a bit. Reflexes say dodge when this hits the ground but that is the last thing you want to do. It's not so much a typical AoE attack as it is a nova. So, the attack spreads out. You want to dodge after he hits. It might take a try or two to get this one figured out. The second major one is when he charges up his hammer and slams it three times in a row for big fan-shaped explosions. Much like the first, this one has some deceptiveness built in. It is not a 100% fan that hits everywhere it lights up. It actually fires out several trails, one of which goes right towards you. This becomes super easy to dodge once you realize this because all you need to do is dodge backward (or forward) at 45-60 degree angle and he'll miss with all of them.

One note about the first slam is that it might feel like a good time to get in some damage, and it is, but don't get caught with your pants down and in a big animation. Even if he looks like he might attack a spirit or friend, he has a tendency to change targets while up in the air and gives little warning!

The third major thing to watch out for is his lightning bolt. However, this one doesn't have much in the way of trickery, but getting the timing down might take a try or two. 

Once you can reliably avoid these three things the rest of it is pretty easy in terms of defense. The biggest trouble is finding the time to get the hits in. Something with a quick animation is your friend, but he is also prone to losing/switching aggro so you can hit him with something big here and there. He also seems to maintain a fairly steady tempo, so his wind-up/wind-down/recovery between attacks feels consistent and can help you get an idea for when to attack. 

As for what he is weak to? Good question! Testing would be required, but he seems to take a lot of damage from most things. Glintstone Icecrag hits him really hard, and Stars of Ruin can do some work if you need a bit more range. Hitting him with Ranni's Dark Moon when he loses aggro can give you a little boost in damage going forward thanks to its magic resistance reduction. Quite frankly, he takes a lot of damage and could even be considered fairly squishy, but he has a tendency to take you out of the fight before you can capitulate - or he'll do enough damage to you that you go into the next round without as many resources as you may need. 

One thing I did find is that Black Knife Tiche (bless her soul) is as good against him she is against most bosses. Her rot-blade or whatever nonsense she flings around can easily take 20% of his Hp by the time its DoT runs out, so she is a good one to use. She's also durable enough that she will last through both fights without issue. 

With a little luck and some good timing, you can eliminate Radagon inside a minute, if not quicker, leaving you with just the follow-up fight to deal with. As a sorcerer, that one feels like a lot bigger threat!

For incantation users, Black Flame and Lightning Spear are both effective punishers. Radagon also seems to be vulnerable to the Frenzied Flame spells. Frenzied Burst is highly recommended due to it's long range. For the second phase against Elden Beast, Pest Threads (at close range) deals heavy damage to large targets such as the Beast.

Radagon of the Golden Order Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Radagon’s
Spear
Radagon throws a large holy spear towards the player, which lingers before exploding. Jump over or dodge to the side and keep distance from the bolt until it explodes

Holy
Spear 
Fan

Radagon throws five small holy spears in front of him in a fan formation, which linger before exploding. Dodge through them.
 Grab Radagon's missing arm materializes with golden light, raising it before grabbinh the target with a shockwave, before beginning to slam them with his hammer. The timing on this one is strange the attack lags and leaves you prone to panic rolling. Wait about two and a half seconds and then roll into Radagon.  
Charge Swing Radagon charges towards the player with their hammer held out to the right. Dodge into Radagon.
Gold Breaker Radagon jumps into the air, hovers for a moment as his hammer glows, then lunges down towards the player. Dodge towards Radagon as he lunges down. This avoids the AOE pulse of the attack, making it much easier to avoid.
Elden Shattering Imbues his hammer before slamming the ground three times, the last one painting the symbol of the Elden Ring on the ground. Move away or dodge into it.
Draining Field Radagon sunmons a holy spear and slams it down, creating a field that drains health when one stands in it. Dodge and move away.
Imbued Hammer Slams Two variations, including a regular slam with an AOE, or a dragging attack, which leaves behind a damaging field which later explodes. Dodge into it.
Teleport Radagon teleports away, creating a shockwave everytime he reappears, dealing minor damage This is arguably the most irritating attack, as it can be chained quite often. Just dodge away from it.

Radagon Lore, Notes & Other Trivia

  • Upon using the Law of Regression incantation on a statue in Leyndell Royal Capital, a message will appear saying "Radagon is Marika".
  • The description for Marika's Hammer says that Marika shattered the Elden Ring, while Radagon attempted to fix it, suggesting that the two halves are in conflict with each other.
  • In the introduction to elden ring the two halves are shown, Marika shattering the Elden ring and Radagon attempting to repair it.

      At first, i really hate this boss but now when im at NG5, i find out that his boss fight is one of the best boss fights in this game, or i would say the best 1v1 boss fight in the entire game. Praise the Chadagon !

      • Anonymous

        It’s kinda hard to kill it since he will start to spam tp whenever ur trying to approach him after he reach half health

        • The type of physical damage he deals depends on the attack. Most are strike, but some do deal slash and standard.

          He may use a faster grab animation after catching a projectile; Arrows, throwing knives, spells, etc. to punish players. It does the same amount of damage as his slower grab attack, and is pure strike damage, while the little AoE it does after he slams his hand down to grab the player deals both strike (331) and holy (335).

          • Anonymous

            Just wanting to say, his grab attack is influenced by spells. Of course it’s probably already known that when he deflects spells, and then goes into the grab, it’s way faster than normal. But when he’s already in the grab windup, its speed can be influenced by projectile spells. If he gets hit by while windup the grab while be way faster than normal

            • Anonymous

              His grab attack has killed me more than any other attack. Is it just me, or is the timing on it inconsistent? I can't seem to figure out the right time to dodge it.

                Perhaps... Radagon's nature is the same as that of Shabriri. Radagon is the essence of the Golden Order - perhaps even the Greater Will. Just as Shibriri is Chaos incarnate. Marika is only the Vessel. Transformation magic. Rebirth. All these things we have seen before. That's why Marika orchestrated the shattering with Ranni - a bid to be free of Radagon and the Greater Will.

                  "Sword wrought from the remains of a god who should have lived a life eternal."
                  Is the sacred relic sword proof Radagon and Marika were initially two separate beings?

                  Upon defeating Radagon, the Elden Beast emerges from the Elden Ring seeping out of Radagon's body who then subsumes Radagon's remains underwater, and then seemingly forges a sword out of his remains.

                  Yet upon defeating the Elden Beast, the body of fractured Marika still remains in the same pose as she was while imprisoned.
                  If they truly were the same body, wouldn't she have suffered the same fate?

                  Maybe Radagon managed to ultimately overpower Marika and take full control, as he is the only one who raises a hand against us. Viciously protecting the Golden Order till the very end.

                        If you are struggling and have a +25 weapon, just put Flame of the Redmanes on it and start spamming. Three casts open Radagon for critical stabbing, four casts will stagger Elden Beast. +25 Flames deal around 900-1000 Fire damage without buffs, so the fight becomes a joke. Same with Maliketh.

                          If you parry the boss, his grab becomes way faster. There is an audible que that I'd like to use in this case that wouldn't work with the normal super long grab timing. His sfx goes like psoooo pwissshhhhhhhh. When the pwissshhh starts, you roll.

                              He and Elden Beast had to have had thier powers amplified. I've never had this much trouble with either of them. This is as of Oct 26th 2022. From did something to these guys. Had to. Buffed them or something.

                                After fighting with such bs bosses as Malenia and Maliketh, fighting with Godfrey and Radagon was really a breath of fresh air. Finally, bosses that don't oneshot you or kill with one combo. I could hit a boss more often than 1 hit per hour, and dodging their attacks was so much more enjoyable than spam rolling on Mal- prefixed bosses. And then this cosmic endosperm appears, with Elden Ring's patented genius boss designs called one hit per hour™ and spamming till dying™.

                                  92 hours of play time. Countless bosses. I finally face down a literal god, and it’s the most boring, quick boss fight I had in the entire game. Then the stage 2 is a running simulator. It’s like the ending of The Dark Tower and A Song Of Ice and Fire had an inbred baby and that baby is this games ending.

                                    Bad boss that thinks we are in Sekiro again. Not the worst offender but at least he is the "final" boss so he has somewhat of an excuse

                                      To the individuals who post here that they have a hard time with this fight. You can only blame yourself for your failure. In most cases I would bet you used the mimic to carry you through a large percentage of the boss fights that were supposed to teach you how to deal with this very fight. Take some time start fresh and fight bosses one on one at least a little before you summon help. The game is created in a manner to give you the tools needed to be able to complete this fight. Either way you get out of it what you put in and if you are still having fun, fair play. However! complaining that you are bad is not going to get you anywhere the reward in this game is overcoming the difficulty.

                                        personally I find this guy so much more difficult than elden beast…. He just spams you, with impossible to dodge moves that no matter when you jump or roll 90% of the time he will always damage you… everytime you think you have an opening to attack haha nope he just teleports and gets iframes then damages you. Meanwhile elden beast all you really do is chase around an overgrown anime monster with easy to dodge, predictable attacks. I’m on NG+6 and I still struggle with this idiot

If you're at the right distance, the grab explosion will damage you and then he'll do the grab attacks as well. If you're closer to him, the explosion won't do damage.

                                            Stop spamming heal, stop spamming spells and start to pay attention to the bosses you struggle with. He never changes the timing on his attacks, his AoEs are very well timed, easy to dodge and do not deal that much damage, unless you were a bathingsuit and have under 45 vigor. Want a pro tip to master him in melee? Use a Ultragreatsword, learn to time your dodge and boom: you will never heal more than twice in this fight. To all spell spammer: he has mastered both incants and sorceries, do you really expect to be better than the demented hero of the last 3.5k years? To people who cry "input reading": why should he let you heal for free whenever you want? at least time your heal dude.

                                            • True insanity is watching a man and his Mimic spamming Pest Threads at Radagon, only for the chunky golden rock man to spin his hand at 10K RPM and negate 98% of the damage every single time WITHOUT COOLDOWN.

                                                      Took me what felt like an eternity, but in fact it was several hours and much less time than I needed beating Malenia. The key for me was to equip the heaviest armour available to me (I used Omen Helm, rest Lionel's Armour), Rotten Winged Sword Insignia, Shard of Alexander, Dragon Crest Greatshield Talisman and Haligdrake Talisman +2. Equip only two spells, i.e. incantations, namely Lord's Heal and Lord's Divine Fortification, use Morgott's Great Rune and then summon Mimic Tear, not Tiche. Take only one weapon (the one you do most damage with, depending on your attributes and player skills) - for me, it was Moonveil. I used 7 healing flasks and 7 Focus flasks. Take the weapon in both hands (the equipped incantations are for the Mimic Tear to use mostly). Only do two weapon ults for Radagon at a time, then concentrate on evading. Repeat. If opportunity arises, hit him with a few normal hits. Chase the Elden Beast around, dealing as much damage as possible before it goes into its usual frenzies. Repeat, and prepare for a somewhat lengthy battle with the Beast. Took me around 5-10 minutes or something for the Beast alone, I believe.

                                                              There was a solid advice in comments here - just roll into most of his attacks and it will make the fight a breeze. Started doing it and finished him and the beast in three tries.

                                                                Elden Beast honestly ruins this fight, why couldn't they have just given Radagon a second phase where he changes into Marika or something like that? Radagon is a cool and fun boss, Elden Beast is just annoying and having to fight Radagon all over again after dying to the Elden Beast just made this fight get tedious very quickly, as i said, i would've preferred if Radagon simply got a second phase.

                                                                  is he the REAL radagon or just a fake copy that imitates him, hmmmm?

                                                                  • Anonymous

These completely killed and ruined the series for me. I see a lot of people defending that it's ok that Radagon and Elden Beast are together and to you I say, f*k you with the firery intense passion of a million loses because that's what it took to finish this game that tries way too hard to be unfair

                                                                    • Anonymous

But if anyone reading this page before trying the final two bosses has black flame ritual in their load out, the pillars of black flame will not stagger Radagon the way they do with most enemies he will easily pass through the flame circle to get at you. I don't know if he can do the same thing with black flame tornado.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

I don't fancy the idea of having to fight a boss with thirteen f**ing thousand HP every time the final boss kills me. I have had my money's worth out of it though so I'm not that concerned about calling it a day before the final two bosses.

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            Realism is when you go to someone to kill them, they defend themselves with everything they have, and realism is that you are not always the victor. Radagon is a God, leader of the Golden Order.

                                                                            From Soft' has no duty to allow everyone to finish the game. You knew this game was supposed to be hard. Like I'm not good enough to beat the game "Ghosts'n Goblins", but I'm not gonna complain to the developer because I'm not good enough. If you really want to win every time, there are builds for that. If you want to keep your favorite build, it's very respectable and I encourage you, and if you die too often, take breaks and breathe instead of raging.

                                                                            • Anonymous

WELL TOO BAD LOSER NO YOU HAVE TO FIGHT THE FIRST ******* ALL OVER AGAIN HAVE FUN! Tldr, Radagon is a big doodoo head and I hate him.

                                                                              • Anonymous

After 5 Soulsborne games, they decide that now is not only the time to have a double, end-to-end boss fight, but also have two almost frustratingly broken bosses on top of that? Who looked at the difficulty curve from Gideon to Godfrey to ****ING Radagon and the Elden Beast and said "Yeah, that's fine"?

Mimic Tear is MUCH better. Use a Magma Blade +10. The AOE Weapon Art MELTS this boss, even more when your copy also uses it.

Or perhaps instead of having to learn a completely different boss Radagon simply had a phase two or three? It hardly soured the whole game for me or anything, but it really turned a fight that could've been a really cool satisfying conclusion into something alot more tedious than it should've been.

It could even be input reading as another comment says. Might be less of an issue for fast weapon builds but with a colossal hammer it's annoying to say the least.

Raptor's Mist > Jump Attack by default is a pretty good move, since he'll most certainly be in your face in those attacks.

Radagon seems reluctant to shift his aggression off you if you can keep tanking his hits and poking - and a spear can carry black flame tornado for use in the Elden Beast fight. If you're willing to sink a truly disgusting amount of points into endurance and strength, a sacred affinity fingerprint great shield and a fire infused partisan can do the job here - you will need both the sanctified and red-hot whetblades for this, the first of which is missable. Just cross your fingers that the host brings the DPS for the Radagon phase.

                                                                                                        • Oh dont know i had way more fun fighting Godfrey. He at least had the guts to face you head on. This guy? Just put heavy armor on, used lord's plus alexander's talismans, buffed myself to high heavens with physical\divine defense buffs and trolled his sorry teleporting ass with lion claw on greatsword. Maybe i would consider fighting him properly if not the cluster**** that is Elden beast. At this point tbh i just wanted it to be over. Previous games had way better endgame imo.

As it’s often tricky to figure out which version he’s going to do, I suggest running away and jumping with the assumption he’s doing the faster one. At worst you will get clipped by the explosion, much better than getting caught and taking massive damage.
