How to Defeat Divine Bridge Golem in Elden Ring
We will be mentioning fight strategies for both melee and Magic and Ranged users. Ash Summons and Spells will be quite useful in this fight. So, here are all the details for fight strategy that both melee and ranged and magic users can adopt.
For melee users, it is a bit easy to defeat this boss. Once the fight begins, you should attack its legs two times with any two-handed weapon. Keep in mind that it should be a fully charged attack.
The quick attacks will make the boss fall to the ground, thus giving you a chance to hit the chest with a Critical Attack. Once you land the attack, the Divine Bridge Golem will start getting back up again. Simply target its legs again and force it to the ground for another rinse-repeat cycle.
Magic and Ranged users can make use of Rock Sling during their fight while maintaining a distance. If one can avoid attacks by staying closer to this boss, then Glintstone Pebble is the best option to smash this boss. However, with low HP in your inventory, a single misread can potentially take you out of the game.,
Another strategy can be to target the ankles with rocks to stumble the boss and make him fall. Once it falls, cast a series of spells at the chest before it stands up again.
This boss has the ability to launch attacks that can reach the players at a long range. So, stay at a big enough distance to avoid attacks and immediately run back to the range of Rock Sling when you come forward to attack this boss.
Divine Bridge Golem Drops
After defeating this boss, you will be rewarded Golem’s Halberd. You can also open the chest on the side of the arena and find Blessed Dew Talisman from it.
How to Cheese Divine Bridge Golem
The way to cheese this boss is to target its feet. Land enough damage to its feet and it will fall to the ground, giving you a long window of opportunity to get in a good amount of damage.
Make sure to wield a two-handed weapon before activating the boss. Once done, unleash hell on its feet and force it to the ground. Next, target its chest and abdominal cavity to do the maximum amount of damage.
When the boss begins to recover, wait until its back up before targeting its legs again and doing the same cycle all over until it’s dead.
