Let us describe first the types of bosses in Elden Ring. There are 3 types of Bosses in Elden Ring: (1) Field Bosses, (2) Greater Enemy Bosses (Mini-Boss), and (3) Demigods, Lords, and Legends. 

  • Field Bosses – These are the lowest-tier among the bosses. These bosses indicate an “Enemy Felled” notification when defeated.
  • Greater Enemy Bosses – These bosses grant or open-up access to important locations or drop powerful items once defeated. They are stronger than field bosses and notify “Great Enemy Felled” when slain.
  • Demigods, Lords, and Legends –  These are the most powerful bosses in the game and provide equally powerful loots such as the Great Runes or Mending Runes.
