Most Annoying Boss Encounters in Elden Ring Content List
Elden Ring presents a wide range of Bosses with unique designs and skills. While fighting some bosses is quite exhilarating, certain bosses are notoriously annoying and difficult to defeat. We have compiled the list of the 10 most annoying Elden Ring Bosses according to the popular opinion of the fans.
Godskins is certainly one of the most powerful and infuriating bosses in the game. Godskins especially the Godskins duo are infamous for testing the skills, patience, and endurance of the players to extreme limits. While some players enjoy the kick of challenges brought upon by Godskins, many find them downright annoying.
While the occurrence of Lobsters is quite rare in this game, whenever they do appear, they are still mentioned as one of the most annoying enemies in Elden Ring as they are quite difficult to beat and are also capable of dishing out tremendous damage to unaware players, making quick work of them. They are seen as one of the most challenging creatures to combat in the Elden Ring.
Though Revenants are not exactly bosses, these enemies have earned their reputation as notorious enemies to beat. Revenants are quite aggressive creatures with fast speeds that can be difficult to keep up with. Revenants might sneak up on you in the most unexpected manner. The need to constantly neutralize them with magical spells also makes the combat quite annoying.
7. Misbegotten Warrior
Misbegotten Warriors are extremely aggressive bosses who are guaranteed to put your reflexes to the test. The unpredictable and swift fighting style of these warriors does not give you much time to plan a strategy. This boss uses a combination of dark magic and core strength to fight without holding back. One has to be very observant and patient while facing Misbegotten Warrior or you may have to respawn.
You know we are not exaggerating when we say that the fight with Gargoyles has led to many infuriated rage quits. The twin Gargoyles fight in particular has been voted as one of the most frustrating encounters in the game by many players. The coordinated and well-strategized attacks by this duo can take a huge toll on your patience. While one twin proceeds with a melee attack the other backs it up by spewing poison from a distance. Gargoyles bring forth some of the most challenging fights in the game.
5. Imp Statues
While Imp Statues aren’t bosses or enemies in particular, their unexpected and random appearance in the game has been tested frustrating by players. Imp Statues appear out of nowhere, blocking the passage of the player’s journey route. They might not be able to attack the player but their tricks and the entrapment they cause certainly can be deemed annoying.
4. Burial Dogs
Burial Dogs might be just another random enemy in the game but their boss-level health certainly hogs a lot of time for players. Burial Dogs inflict a lot of damage on the player, making it very challenging to fight them. The humongous amount of time dwelled in a simple opponent creature just seems unfair to the players.
3. The God-Devouring Serpent
The God-Devouring Serpent is a humongous mythical creature, and encountering it is one of the most jaw-dropping events in the game. While the fight with this gigantic serpent is an exhilarating one, devising a proper strategy is of utmost importance to secure this task or you will end up fighting this boss forever.
Many players have felt this boss is too tricky to take down and if you too are getting cold feet thinking about it, remember, all the hard work and frustration after defeating this boss as the reward will be well worth it.
2. Crucible Knights
Crucible knights are amongst one of the most skilled warriors in the Elden Ring. They handle long-reaching swords that can easily cut through your defenses with ease. There is no time to rest your eyes when you are fighting against these fast-paced Elite knights.
Crucible Knights are strong-willed and righteous characters who would not hold back when justice is impending. This group of knights is led by a charismatic leader and the knights operate from a fortress, Iron Citadel.
1. Ulcerated Tree Spirits
Lastly, Ulcerated Tree Spirits have been voted as the most annoying game boss in Elden Ring in the game and we have no reason to not wholeheartedly agree. These Spirits inhabit twisted and decaying trees of the enchanted forest. Ulcerated Tree Spirits attack in a random fashion, trapping the player in a long-lasting challenge.
What makes encounters with these boss-type creatures is that since they belong to the Spirit creature’s enemy class, they can phase in and phase out of the physical world in unpredictable Not just this, Ulcerated Tree Spirits summon random minion companions to assist them in the fight.
Like all these challenges weren’t enough, Ulcerated Tree Spirits are also able to replenish their health over time making them extremely frustrating to defeat.
