How to Fight Radahn, Consort of Miquella in Phase 1

Radahn Consort of Miquella Phase 1 Elden Ring

As he is the hardest boss fight in the game. Use every summon you can use during this fight and even then it will be extremely hard for you to win. First, always keep at a mid-range distance so that you can sprint away to avoid attacks. Wait for Radahn to target one of the summons, before going close and hitting on its back.

Phase 1 is best fought with ranged attacks, spells, or the new throwable weapons. Your main objective during this phase is to save your Healing Flasks for Phase 2. If possible, also save your Spirit Summon, which will improve your odds of defeating him. Bleed works best on him, so try the quickest bleed proc builds you can.

Here are all his attack patterns in phase 1 and how to dodge them:

  • Spinning Lunge: This is often the first attack Radahn does after entering the boss room. He spins in the air and homes in on players with a strong impact that creates spikes from the ground. To dodge it perfectly, wait for Radahn to get close to you before side-rolling.
  • Lion’s Claw: The attack is pretty explanatory. Radahn spins in the air and slams his blades on the player. He can do this twice consecutively, or once. Dodging this attack is pretty simple, wait for him to start descending towards you and side roll to avoid the attack. Stay ready in case he does it twice.
  • Gravity Pull and Smash: This attack is similar to old Radahn’s gravity pull and smash, the difference being that the attack also raises spikes from the ground. To dodge it, wait for Radahn to charge the attack completely, and as he separates his hands to pull the player, side roll to avoid the attack.
  • Left-Right Cross Slash: During this combo attack, Radahn does a wide slash with his left arm, followed by another wide slash with his right arm. Then he charges for half a second and executes a cross-slash attack that sends spikes from the ground. To dodge this attack, always double-dodge roll to your right and towards Radahn. Dodge-rolling backward always receives a hit from either of the hands or from the ground spikes.
  • Pick up and Smash: In this attack, Radahn uses both his swords to toss up and smash the player, dealing really high damage. This attack is very slow in execution, and you will only get hit by it if you roll early. The best way to dodge it is to sprint away. You may still need to dodge roll if you cannot reach far enough to avoid the attack.
  • Meteor Throw: Radahn jumps into the air and conjures 4-5 meteors, which home in on the players. The easiest way to dodge this attack is sprinting either left or right of the attack and jumping at the last second.
  • Side Slash Combo: During this combo attack, Radahn does five wide-sweeping attacks as he moves toward the player. This combo can also have a 6th attack, so be careful while healing. To dodge this attack, it’s best to roll backward and sprint backward when you dodge the first strike.
  • Slam Slash Stomp combo: Radahn starts running towards the player and starts the combo with a slam attack from his right hand, followed by two quick wide slashes. Then he can continue the combo by smashing the swords into the ground and with a slightly delayed attack, followed by another upheaval attack that raises the spikes from the ground. To dodge this combo, time the dodge-roll for the first slam attack, and then quickly do a double side roll to avoid the following slashes. Next wait half a second and dodge roll again to the backside of Radahn, and jump during the upheaval attack.
  • Blood Flame Slash: This attack is similar to Mohg’s blood flame attacks, as he slashes with his sword to create a blood flame trail, followed by an explosive thrust attack, after which the blood flame trail explodes. This attack can be dodge easily with with timed side rolls.

How to Fight Radahn, Consort of Miquella in Phase 2


After Radahn drops below 30-40% HP, he enters the phase 2 transitions cutscene. During the phase 2 transition, his boss name changes from “Promised Consort Radahn”, to “Radahn, Consort of Miquella”. During this phase, Miquella holds on to Radahn’s back and imbues all his attacks with holy strikes. Radahn’s phase 2 is even more difficult, with Radahn being very aggressive and almost two-shotting players instantly.

During this phase, you need to be much more cautious. Most of his attacks in this phase is hard to see through, mainly due to the special effects. Keep a calm head and dodge the attacks as mentioned below to defeat Radahn, Consort of Miquella in Elden Ring.

Here are all his attack patterns in phase 2 and how to dodge them:

  • Holy Light Strike: Every attack from Radahn during phase 2 creates a Holy strike attack after wards. Be prepared to dodge twice for every attack from his phase 1, and also make sure to dodge roll sideways to avoid getting hit from the light strikes.
  • Holy Blast: The first attack Radahn does mostly in phase 2 is the holy blast, which originates on the player’s location. This attack takes a couple of seconds to charge, but has a big AoE area and can almost one-shot players. To dodge this attack, start sprinting instantly in any one direction when the attack is charging. Once you reach outside the AoE area, you will be safe. However, stay aware of the additional Holy strikes that occur randomly around the area after this attack.
  • Projected Attacks: Radahn will use Projections during this phase to confuse the players about his actual attack. Keep your eyes fixed on the real Radahn behind the projections and time the roll to dodge the attack.
  • Rings of Light: During this phase, Radahn can also shoot rings of light at the players. This has two variations, one is a small one and the other is a complete AoE originating from its body. Both can be dodged by timing the roll right before the attack reaches you.
  • Grab Attack: In this attack, Radahn lunges at the player and gives them a bear hug. This attack is fairly easy to dodge, simply wait for Radahn to get near you and then do a side roll to avoid the attack.
