All Liurnia boss locations in Elden Ring
By land or by lake, there be bosses.
Elden Ring is a big game, but few regions are as expansive as Liurnia of the Lakes. It also happens to have more bosses than anywhere else, but luckily we’ve found them all. Below is an alphabetical list of every boss in the area.

All boss locations in Liurnia of the Lakes
Adan, Thief of Fire
Adan is one of many bosses locked inside Evergaols, arenas that restrict you from summoning other players or Spirit Ashes. He’s at the Malefactor’s Evergaol in southern Liurnia, marked above. Beating him gets you the Flame of the Fell God incantation.
Likewise, the Alabaster Lord is found in the Royal Grave Evergaol in northern Liurnia. See the specific spot marked above.
Alecto, Black Knife Ringleader
And here’s yet another Evergaol fight. Alecto is found at the Ringleader’s Evergaol in southwestern Liurnia. She’s a tough one to defeat, and you’ll need to follow Ranni’s quest to reach her part of the map.
Bell Bearing Hunter
There are a few Bell Bearing Hunters in Elden Ring, and Liurnia’s is found at the Church of Vows. Visit it at night to make him appear, and see our boss guide to prepare for the fight.
Black Knife Assassin / Cemetery Shade
You’ll find a few Black Knife Assassins in the game too. This one is found in the Black Knife Catacombs, way up in the northeastern corner of the region. The entrance is marked above. There’s a second boss, the Cemetery Shade, found inside as well.
Another dungeon boss, this one is found at the end of the Lakeside Crystal Cave. See the location in the screenshot above. Note that the entrance is on the same level as the lake under the cliff.
Bols, Carian Knight
There’s one more Evergaol in Liurnia — the Cuckoo’s Evergaol along the central-western cliffs. You can face Bols the Carian Knight inside.
The Cleanrot Knight is the boss of Stillwater Cave, a dungeon found at the southern tip of the lake. The entrance is marked above. Here’s how to beat it when you get there.
There are a few different Crystalians in the game, but this one fights alone, making it a bit easier to beat. It’s the boss of Raya Lucaria Crystal Tunnel, a dungeon indicated above.
Crystalian (Spear) & Crystalian (Staff)
If you’re ready to take on two Crystalians at once, head to the Academy Crystal Cave. They’re the final bosses of that dungeon, pictured above. The entrance is in the lake, not the school grounds.
There’s a handful of Deathbirds flying over The Lands Between, but Liurnia’s is found in the southern half of the lake. Head to the spot marked above at night, and it will swoop in to attack you, initiating the battle.
Death Rite Bird
Death Rite Bird is a more powerful version of the Deathbird, so this one will be harder to beat. Visit the location above to have it fly in just like its cousin. It also only appears at night.
Erdtree Avatar 1
There are two Avatars to take down in Liurnia. The first guards the Minor Erdtree along the road on the western edge of the region. See our boss guide for the winning strategy, as it applies to both fights.
Erdtree Avatar 2
The second Avatar guards the Erdtree in the northeastern part of the Liurnia.
Erdtree Burial Watchdog
You’ve probably already beaten one Erdtree Burial Watchdog by the time you encounter this one, but it’s found in the Cliffbottom Catacombs. The dungeon is in the southeastern pocket of the region.
Glintstone Dragon Adula
Adula, one of Elden Ring’s many dragons, is actually found in two places. The first is at the spot marked at on the left above, at Three Sisters near Caria Manor. After losing half her health, she’ll fly away. Ranni’s quest will eventually bring you to the Cathedral of Manus Celus, where you can finish the fight against Adula near the entrance.
Glintstone Dragon Smarag
Smarag doesn’t fly away, but it still guards an important item — the Glintstone Key that opens the gate to Raya Lucaria Academy. You’ll find this dragon sleeping by a rock formation in the water west of the school.
You’ll fight a few different Godskin Nobles during the game. This one guards the bridge that connects the Carian Study Hall to the Divine Tower of Liurnia, as marked above.
Magma Wyrm Makar
There’s one last dragon in Liurnia, and it’s found as you explore the Ruin-Strewn Precipice that connects Liurnia to the Altus Plateau. You’ll have to beat Magma Wyrm Makar to finish your climb.
Night’s Cavalry 1
Just as there are two Erdtree Avatars in Liurnia, there are also two Night’s Cavalries. The first one appears near the broken bridge to Gate Town along the eastern cliffs — remember that these riders only appear at night.
Night’s Cavalry 2
The second is found in the woods just south of Bellum Church
Omenkiller is fought at the Village of Albinaurics, so remember that it’s located under the cliff surface indicated above. You’ll fight it just after crossing the big stone bridge.
Red Wolf of Radagon
You’ll encounter this canine as you make your way through the Academy of Raya Lucaria, the main dungeon in Liurnia of the Lakes. Here’s how to beat it when you get there.
Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon
Likewise, Rennala is the final boss of the academy. We have a guide on how to beat her too.
Royal Knight Loretta
Loretta guards the entrance to the Three Sisters, found at the end of Caria Manor. The manor/dungeon entrance is marked above.
You’ll encounter a few of these in Elden Ring, but this is the only one considered a true boss fight. It’s found in a hidden underground room at the Kingsrealm Ruins. Go to the spot in the screenshot and attack the floor to clear the illusory floor, revealing the stairs leading down.
There are two of these in the game, and the first is found in the Road’s End Catacombs. The dungeon entrance is marked above.
Similarly, there are a few different Tibia Mariners to beat — here’s the strategy. This particular one spawns just south of the Carian Study Hall.
