How to Defeat Godskin Apostle: Phase one

In this first phase, the Godskin Apostle strikes hard and quickly. The most typical attacks to be aware of are fast strikes with the sharp end of its scythe-like weapon, which can frequently swap in two quick blows. Rolling through them is quite simple; the only thing to keep in mind is not rolling too quickly. 

Godskin Apostle may also launch a short-ranged attack. The monster will conjure a blackish sphere of energy in its palm and throw it at you. This move isn’t too difficult to cope with if you dodge when the orb is careening towards you in mid-air.

Godskin Apostle can also slowly approach you while twirling its large scythe around in a continuous strike. This attack usually lasts around three seconds, and it’s better to merely back off at this time. In fact, if you’re utilizing a ranged or magic build in Elden Ring, this is the moment to hit the monster with some ranged strikes. This is because it won’t move until it’s through with the complete spinning attack animation.

How to Defeat Godskin Apostle: Phase two

The Godskin Apostle will release a burst of black energy around itself when it reaches half health. The Godskin Apostle now behaves like a slinky, extending its midsection across the battlefield to attack any unlucky souls who venture too close to it.

The boss will regularly use its spinning scythe attack, but this time it will extend out its body towards you. After this, the boss’s upper half will slink back to its bottom half. If the boss extends itself and slashes with its scythe in one or two blows, it is preparing to draw its bottom half towards you for another attack.

The entire chain strike consists of two fast slashes followed by a large third attack that cuts across a few meters around the top half of the monster. Therefore, be prepared to dodge and roll through the last blow.

Things to keep in mind

  • Depending on your level when you face the fight in Atlus Plateau, the Godskin Apostle might be a difficult boss to defeat. For this encounter, we recommend employing Ash summons that provides you with several companions at once, like the wolves, or a summon that grants you a single powerful ally, such as Knight Oleg.
  • Stay in the middle of the fight as much as possible to give yourself time to react to the majority of his lethal attacks.
  • Bleed damage is the Godskin Apostle’s main vulnerability. We strongly recommend bringing a weapon that does Bleed damage to enemies with each hit, as well as one with range or fast attacks.
  • Break his stance with Heavy Attacks or Jumping Heavy Attacks for a critical hit. If you want to utilize your Spirit in the fight, be sure to enhance it as much as possible.
  • The Godskin Apostle moves and strikes swiftly, so you should either poke them with a spear from a long distance or come in close and hit them quickly before backing away.
