Even though it has been over a year since the release of Elden Ring, the Gogskin Dou is still considered one of the most challenging boss fights in the game. Today, I’ve tried to create the ultimate Godskin Dou boss fight guide based on my experience with the game for the past year. You’re about to learn the secrets to making this boss battle a piece of cake.

The Godskin Duo is a two-for-one deal, as you’ll face the Godskin Apostle and the Godskin Noble in a battle in the Crumbling Farum Azula. Both are unbelievably annoying, to say the least, which is why they are trending in the Elden Ring community to this day. But don’t worry; we’ve got a trick up our sleeve that will turn the tide in your favor.

In this guide, we will focus on the latest method that will help you cheese Godskin Duo in Elden Ring.

How to Cheese Godskin Duo in Elden Ring

There is a certain glitch you can exploit in the game that will help you cheese the Godskin Duo. However, you will need some items to successfully put this off.

Firstly, you’ll need the Uchigitana with the default Ash of War unsheathed. This item can be obtained in two ways. You can either select the Samurai class as your starting class or acquire it from the Death touched catacombs located in Northern Lim grave. The second item you’ll need is the Serpent Hunter spear, which can be grabbed at the beginning of the boss fight with Reichard.

Simply walk through the boss door and it will be on your left. You don’t need to fight Reichard, so you can quit and reload after grabbing the spear. Lastly, you’ll need throwing daggers, which can be bought from Kale the merchant in the Church of Elleh, or from the twin Maiden husks at the roundtable if Kale has been killed.

It might be worth bringing a friend to help with this glitch, as having an aggro distraction while trying to master the glitch can be helpful. If you don’t have anyone to play with, I suggest finding a friend or taking to Reddit where you can find players looking to cheese and duplicate with you. This glitch is best done in PvP, so having a friend would work the best.

Firstly, make sure your throwing knives are equipped in your quick item slot and highlighted with your Uchigitana. Hold L2 to sheath your weapon, then press R1 to attack.

Don’t move your character at all. Next, go into the item menu and switch your Uchi Katana to the Serpent Hunter spear. It’s recommended to put all of your other weapons away in the chest to make the process simpler. After switching to the spear, press Circle to backstep, then begin rolling in any direction, preferably forward. The goal is to drain all of your stamina. If you accidentally walk or sprint instead of rolling, you’ll need to start over.

Once your stamina is depleted, hold forward and spam Square to use your throwing daggers. As soon as you see the animation, immediately hold L2. This is the part of the glitch that can take the most time to master, as the timing for holding L2 is crucial. However, with practice, you should be able to master it.

Once you successfully perform the glitch, you’ll have a deadly weapon that will shred anyone in just a few seconds, even if your stamina and FP are depleted. To recap, hold L2, press R1 on your Uchi Katana, switch to the Serpent Hunter spear, backstep, roll to drain stamina, spam Square, hold L2 at the right moment, and watch as you effortlessly beat the Godskin Duo.

Godskin Duo Cheese Method #2

If the above method is completed for you, they you might want to try a much easier way to chees both of these gentlemen. For this method, you need the Sleep Pots recipe which is available through Fevor’s Cookbook [1].

  • Sleep Pot Crafting Recipe: 1x Mushroom, 1x Trina’s Lily, and 1x Cracked Pot.

The recipe is for one pot and you will need at least 15 to 20 of them to beat the boss in case they dodge your throws. If you have perfect aim, then 5 sleep pot would be enough.

It’s time to put your preparations into action. Ensure that you have added the Sleep Pots to your quick select, so you won’t have to search through your menu in the heat of the moment. You can access the arena from either the Dragon Temple or the Dragon Temple Transept Site of Grace.

The Godskin Duo fight is unique compared to other duo fights in the series because both bosses share a common health bar, but they also have their individual health bars that the main health bar draws from. To defeat them completely, you must kill both bosses twice to drain all of their combined health. That’s where the Sleep Pots come in handy.

As soon as the fight begins, make sure to keep your distance from both the Godskin Noble and the Godskin Apostle. Strategically target one of them, and launch a Sleep Pot towards them. The potency of the Sleep Pot will swiftly render them unconscious.

Quickly shift your focus to the other boss and repeat the process. With both bosses slumbering, it’s the perfect chance to strike. Slip behind one of them and unleash a barrage of attacks with reckless abandon. Your goal is to unleash as much damage as possible, sapping away a substantial portion of their shared health bar before they wake up.
