All Elden Ring Shadow of The Erdtree recommended level guide: Bosses and locations

The Best Order to Fight the Bosses in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree: Explained

Embarking on a journey through Shadow of The Erdtree can be overwhelming with the plethora of new bosses and locations introduced. Much like other FromSoftware games, the map can be traversed in any order, but here’s my take on the ideal approach to tackling all the bosses in Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree.

Main Bosses Recommended Level

When progressing through the main quests of Shadow of The Erdtree, encountering these bosses is inevitable. It’s crucial to avoid skipping areas and finding yourself underleveled. Venturing to Jagged Peak and attempting to climb the mountain before reaching level 10 is not advisable. Take a look at this list to gauge your readiness for each encounter.

Mausoleum Boss Recommended Level

It’s recommended to tackle these bosses as you progress through the game. From personal experience, I found myself adequately leveled by the time I reached the areas where the Shadow of the Erdtree Mausoleum bosses were located. However, the Blackgaol Knight proved to be an exception as he is situated right at the entrance. It’s advisable to return later for this battle.

While these bosses can be bypassed, it’s essential to be adequately leveled to face the optional bosses in Shadow of The Erdtree. The challenge lies in encountering them at any point in your journey.
