Tibia Mariner is a Field Boss in Elden Ring. These hunched skeleton dress in lace and ride a ghostly boat. It steers its vessel and attacks the player with a large horn and the aid of undead Skeletons. They are optional bosses, as players don't need to defeat them in order to advance in Elden Ring.

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.

Tibia Mariner Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Tibia Mariner:

 

 
Melee Users

Yee Haw: Stay mounted on Torrent, run in for a few hits, then run away again. The Skeletal Militiamen are slow enough that you won't need to worry about them, and the Tibia Mariner's attacks are slow enough that you probably won't get hit offten.

Slow and Steady: If you're fighting on foot, focus on damaging the TIbia Mariner itself and try to avoid getting hit by the Skeletal Militiamen. Hit the boss a few times and then dodge out of the way when it starts attacking. Keep repeating this, staying to its side or behind it if you can. The Crashing Wave attack will kill Skeletal Militiamen as well, which can help control the crowd.

Magic and Ranged Users

Stay on horseback and keep back when attacking. The Tibia Mariner moves slowly and doesn't have any way to punish ranged attacks other than its allies, which move slowly in their own right as well. If they start crowding you, run to the other side of the boss and attack from there.

 

Tibia Mariner Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Boat Slam  Slowly raises the bow of its boat, then drops it from a medium height. This attack has very good tracking and will hit you if you try to strafe Run away a few paces—this attack doesn't have a wide radius
Crashing Wave Raises its hand above its head with a green glow while the boat rises high into the air on a wave, then crashes down doing a large amount of damage to everything around it Run away and wait for the attack to finish
Horn Splash Dips its horn to one side and then whips it forward, splashing damaging water to its side Circle to the stern of the boat and keep attacking
Horn Swing Swings its horn to one side Roll towards the stern of the boat
Vertical Horn Holds its horn vertically in front of it for a long time, then brings it down in front of it. The hitbox on this attack is surprisingly small Stay towards the back of the boat and keep attacking
Teleport Will teleport to a different location after fading away. Resummons skeletons at target They can be hit while they are teleporting
Summon Allies Blows its horn flat along the boat, summoning additional skeletons to attack you This doesn't do any damage itself, so you can attack freely during it

  • Once this Tibia Mariner is killed, the giant skeletons on the ridge around it will die as well.

      These enemies, for whatever reason, don't count as undead. They don't take bonus damage from holy water pots or spells like Litany of Proper Death. Really weird. Still weak to holy and strike, though, so bonk the bastards away.

      • Anonymous

        Not that you'd ever need to, but they can be easily cheesed by simply placing Latenna somewhere high up, firing a single projectile, then just letting her take them out while you eat a sandwich

          Could this enemy be related to Helphen's Steeple lorewise? Outside of dropping it, I mean. The item description talks of a lamplight similar to grace in appearance. There's a lamp hanging above the Mariner's chair which gives off a purple glow, but instead of fire, the light seems to emanate from a long and slender object inside, looking very much like a site of grace (to my eyes at least).

              This has to be a strong contender for the dumbest and most pointless boss in the game, maybe any game. At wyndham ruins it disappeared and I was riding round in circles getting nowhere but I thought if I went higher it should be easier to see the glow that gives it away but it was right there in front of me, in the middle of a field with some sheep and not even the kind of sheep that live in death.

              The one at mountaintop of the giants is an even bigger idiot. It was down on a ledge between the large area with all the gravestones and castle sol, it wasn't anywhere near water and it didn't move from that spot, at all. I was throwing volcano pots down on it and the dumb f**ker was just sitting in the middle of their AoE taking massive DoT until it died.

                I spent 10 minutes trying to kill the giant skeleton in Altus Plateau, didn't even realise it was a summon and the boat guy spawned on the very far left, out of sight. Then he teleported on top of a hill

                  Something weird with last one of Tibia Mariners (Concecrated snowfield). I kill him, but one giant skeleton still keeps spawning right at the turn to the bridge - rest now gone. Anyone know if there is hidden summoner snail there or something like it?

                      by far the funniest boss in the game, the mountaintops fight is pretty much him struggling to maneuver the boat through the snow in a small circle (inevitably shipwrecking on some small rocks) while you spam throwables into his boat from the safety of the cliffs above. Oh and there's 2 snails chilling with him for some reason.

                            Either the page is wrong and despite being undead they are not weak to holy or the one near Castle Sol is not weak to holy. I can throw a holy pot at the death bird nearby and do over 2k dmg without hitting face but at this thing I do around 300 dmg.

All you need to do is to go from Snow Valley Ruins Overlook grace toward his position, remaining on main ledge (the one with graveyard). When you will get close to him (you will get promt from Bestial Eye), just stick to the right edge of cliff, and from there you will see him from above, and there will be ledge in mid-way on the left to let you safely jump down. All you need to do now is to remain at the top and spam him with bow, crossbow, ballista or spells with enough range, like Rock Sling. He won't aggro nor start summoning, will remain down there and swim in circles, confused, untill you finnish him.

                                                            The one in Mountaintop of the Giants hasn’t spawned for me despite killing literally everything up there and reloading dozens of times. My last needed deathroot too

                                                              The Tibia Mariner in Mountaintop of the Giants was bugged for me. Tried killing the giant kamehameha skeleton by the bridge before stargazer ruins, tried reloading the area, tried killing every enemy in that entire stretch of cliff south/southwest of Castle Sol. Never spawned in that north facing cliff spot by the castle nor did it spawn more giant skeletons after I kill the one by the bridge.

                                                                The mariner in Altus will summon an enormous skeleton to fight you. It can be killed despite it's health bar not always being visible for some reason. If you stay close it and hit it right in the head then it will have a hard time hitting you with it's swipe attacks. Luckily I had the brick hammer and the orders blade enchantment ready to go so I demolished that giant skeleton fairly easily.

                                                                    Is this a typo, mistranslation, or have i accidentally killed an important old codger?

                                                                    • Anonymous
