Tree Sentinel is a Boss in Elden Ring. Tree Sentinel is part of the Closed Network Test and is found in Limgrave, slightly north form The First Stem. This is an optional boss as players do not have to defeat it to advance to the Legacy Dungeon.


 The heavily armored and highly decorated sentinel protects the tree. Who would dare oppose him?

Tree Sentinel Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Tree Sentinel:

  • You can fight from horseback if you have a bow or magic to make this fight easier
  • His attacks have different timings, so Blocking might be easier for you than dodging depending on your Shield
  • Don't try this Boss as soon as you see him if you are new to From Software games


Melee Strategy

The best strategy when fighting the Tree Sentinel, if you're using melee weapons, is to wait for him to finish his attack and then hit him once or twice and then roll away as he usually follows up fairly quickly. A good Shield can go along way as well, as many of his attacks are erratic, and it can be hard to predict exactly when they will land, making them hard to dodge.

In phase 2 when he starts to jump into the air and he slams his Shield down, you need to stay as far away as possible. The AoE size is much larger than the animation would suggest and if it hits you it's usually a one-shot kill. For this reason, even if you don't think you're going to be struck, roll away anyway. Repeat the same strategy as before, only watching out for this attack so you don't get one-shotted.


Magic and Ranged Strategy

You can do this fight rather easily with ranged Weapons and Spells, as the Tree Sentinel has very telegraphed attacks. I suggest using a Shield in your off hand to Block if need be, and all you really need to do is keep separation and cast your Spells until he is dead. If your Spell has shorter range, like Carian Piercer or Oh, Fire! , then you'll need to play more like a melee build, and follow up his attacks with these spells. 

You can use horseback to make this fight even easier as long as your spells have any sort of range at all.
