Skeleton Mage is a Humanoid Enemy in Elden Ring. Skeleton Mages are Skeleton creatures with low spell-casting abilities. Their soul remains on their body for a moment after defeated, and if they receive no attack during this period, they will come back to life with full health.

 

Skeleton Mages are usually found on graveyards in the Lands Between. They rise out of the ground, often found in groups, wielding scythes and casting ghostly skulls to chase their targets.

Remember to hit them again once you defeat them so you don't let them come back to life and you will only then obtain your runes.

      3 can be found east of Mistwood Ruins that can drop scythe. Still better off farming at the Lake-Facing Cliffs grace unless you want one before then.

        you can kill them easier with holy damage then you don't need to hit them one more time to prevent resurection.

          What I find silly is that these undead are not vulnerable to the Heal spells like the Revenants and Wraiths are.

            I got two of these quickly from the gravyard just north west of the Church of Irith. You can respawn at the Lake-Facing Cliffs grace, just behind the Stormhill Castle. Theres 3 skeletons who can drop it in that graveyard.

              There's a spawn for the grave scythe next to the church of vows. You need to let them fully spawn in, then kill them in their "revival" state to get item drops. I used the silver scarab and the silver pickled fowl foot and got it in 5 minutes.

                I found a good farm for the scythe at the Snow Valley Ruins Overlook in Mountaintop of the Giants. Spawn there and head northeast along the cliff edge, about 20 steps next to tree stump will be one mage skeleton. Two snails spawn next to it so you can kill the snails or just jump off the cliff and reload. Hope this helps

                  Holy damage doesn't seem to do anything against them, they still get back up unless you hit them twice. I also killed about 270 of them while farming the Grave Scythe, all I got was 1 scythe and 9 human bone shards.

                    I think you guys got the wrong image. Those big axe skeletons most definitely don't cast spells. Although they do pack a punch and they could drop their axe, so maybe they should have their own wiki page.
