Apart from the main bosses in the storyline, you can defeat some challenging optional bosses. Malenia, Blade Of Miquella is the most difficult optional boss that many players have had trouble with. In this Elden Ring guide, we go over a cheese for Malenia, which does not require any fighting. We have also included an easy way of killing her that involves fighting for those who want to fight her.

Move Swap Glitch Malenia Cheese In Elden Ring (No Fighting Required)

This glitch method is a bit tricky and requires some practice to perfect, but you do not have to fight Malenia. You simply jump off the map and fall infinitely until Malenia dies. This does count as a kill. 

WeaponsBlack Knife
Devourer’s Scepter
A weapon with Ash of War Gravitas
Rotten Staff
Spirit SummonBlack Knife Tiche
Mimic Tear

Basically, you need to head into the arena and then summon your spirit to distract your boss while you make your way to the outside edge of the arena and then fall off the map using the swap glitch. You will then fall infinitely until Malenia, Blade Of Miquella, dies. You can check out how the glitch works in the video below:

How To Legit Defeat Malenia Easily

WeaponMagma Blade

Malenia takes a lot of damage from Frost, Fire, and Bleed. Her major weakness is that she has low poise, which means that she can be staggered easily. We recommend using the Magma Blade against Malenia, which deals high fire damage and can stagger her easily. The weapon’s ability allows you to quick attacks in succession, dealing high amounts of damage and stunning her. 

Note that some attacks make Malenia’s hand turn golden. These are critical attacks that need to be dodged. Otherwise, they will deal serious damage to you. These attacks are also great for countering. Once the golden attacks are over, you can head in and land some blows. 

The Waterfowl dance attack is what most players will have an issue with. If you are far enough, you should move back to avoid most of the attack, but once she gets close enough, you need to dodge toward her and not back. Dodging backward is the main mistake that players make. For for a movement between her attacks and then dodge towards her again. This might take some practice, but once you have figured it out, you will realize that dodging toward her is the way to go. 

Second Phase

During the second phase of the encounter, wait for her to drop and then dodge back. Get to a safe enough distance and then use Dragonice. As mentioned above, she takes a lot of damage from Frost. 

An important thing to know is that she drops her armor in the second phase of the encounter, so she has little to no poise. You can stagger her pretty easily as long as she has not committed to an attack. You must be patient, but you can still hit her hard and stun her.
