Elden Ring Shadow of Erdtree Main Boss Order

These are all the main bosses that you need to defeat in order to complete the DLC story. Considering their importance, it goes without saying that they’ll be the toughest bosses in the Land of Shadow. When it comes to first two bosses, you can face either one of them before. However, it’s after defeating them that you’ll be able to burn the Sealing Tree and reveal the Enir-Ilim.

After going into the Enir-Ilim, you’ll encounter the third boss, Needle Knight Leda and her allies. Her allies that you’ll face can change depending on the choices you made in the game. Once you defeat Leda, you’ll be able to advance through the Enir-llim. After her, you’ll reach Divine Gate Front Staircase where you’ll access the area to battle Radahn in his prime.
