The Ancestor Spirit is an optional boss in Elden Ring. This fearsome creature is immune to sleep and resistant to bleed, frost, scarlet rot, and poison. However, it is weak to slash, fire, and do holy damage. Defeating the Ancestor Spirit will drop spirit ashes, which can be used to purchase special items from vendors. Defeating this boss is unnecessary to complete the game, but doing so will reward players with valuable loot.

Defeating the Ancestor Spirit is no easy task. In order to even begin the fight, you must first light all eight torches in the area. This can be a difficult feat in and of itself, as the torches are often well-hidden and require some thoughtful platforming to reach. However, once all eight torches are lit, the real challenge begins. The Ancestor Spirit is a powerful foe that will test your combat skills to their limits. However, with perseverance and a bit of luck, you can emerge victoriously. Just remember to return to the Ancestor Spirit’s location once all eight torches are lit in order to initiate the boss fight.

Elden Ring: How to Beat Ancestor Spirit

Ancestor Spirit is a fearsome opponent in Elden Ring. Not only does it have powerful attacks that can quickly deplete your health, but it is also incredibly fast and agile. However, if you time your rolls correctly, you can avoid its attacks and land a few hits of your own. After the Ancestor Spirit stomps down or unleashes a mid-air attack, there will be a brief moment where it is vulnerable to attack. If you can take advantage of this opening, you can deal significant damage and potentially defeat this difficult boss.

The Ancestor Spirit is a powerful foe, but its attacks can be easily avoided with a little bit of effort. When fighting the boss, it’s important to keep an eye on his movements and position. The best way to do this is to lock on, which will help you avoid most of its attacks. However, it’s recommended to unlock when you want to attack for greater accuracy. This will give you a better sense of the boss’ position and allow you to hit it more easily.

One of the most effective ways to defeat the Ancestor Spirit is to exploit its elemental weaknesses. The Spirit is particularly vulnerable to fire and holy damage. Buffing with a fire or holy damage consumable can also help you gain an edge in battle. Using your weapon’s affinity to one of these elements or boosting it with a fire or holy damage consumable can give you a significant advantage in combat.
