We will tell you how you can easily defeat Dragonlord Placidusax in Elden Ring.

3. Where to find Dragonlord Placidusax in Elden Ring?
Dragonlord Placidusax lives in the Crumbling Farum Azula. You can find him by reverting from the “Beside the Great Bridge” Site of Grace.
Once you reach this site, you can take the elevator down the stairs. Come out of the building and move towards the cliff. Here you would see several platforms.
You must jump down from one platform to another to reach the area where the boss fight begins.
4. What are the benefits of defeating Dragonlord Placidusax?
You must know that facing Dragonlord Placidusax is optional, so you can kill him anytime. However, defeating him has some advantages.
You can grab 280,000 Runes if you defeat Dragonlord Placidusax, which can be spent on the Boss’ remembrance.
This Remembrance can be turned into Finger Reader Enia at the Roundtable Hold for Placidusax’s Ruin (Incantation) or Dragon King’s Cragblade (Heavy Thrusting Sword). This has a very extraordinary-looking skill that does a lot of damage.
5. Strategies to defeat Dragonlord Placidusax in Elden Ring?
The weakness of Dragonlord Placidusax in Elden Ring is physical thrust damage so you can defeat him through two methods.
I. Melee Strategy
You need a thrusting weapon to execute the Melee Strategy. Scarlet Rot technique is very useful in this fight.
Remember that your dodges must be precise for the flying attacks because the boss can one-shot you with his flying lightning claw attacks.
Here is a tip for you. If you are behind the boss, you can also spam attacks while moving your camera towards him to understand his animations.
II. Ranged Strategy
If you cannot defeat the Dragonlord Placidusax through melee strategy, you can use the ranged strategy.
You can go for Mage Build by bringing Rock Sling as it deals with a lot of damage and breaks poise quicker. You may also summon Mimic Tear to split the Boss’ powers and spam him with Sorceries.
Another way is the Carian Retaliation on your staff as a Sorcery or the Ash of War version on your shield. You can buy the Sorcery by Preceptor Seluvis for 9000 Runes at Seluvis’ Rise and the Ash of War by Pidia at Caria Manor.
After getting the Carian Retaliation, you should use the Wraith Calling Bell and use your shield’s skill to reflect it. This creates three Glintstone Blades on your head which travels at a very fast speed and damages the boss. After this, you can summon and reflect another wraith to continue damaging the boss until his health reduces.
Every boss has a weakness in Elden Ring, and so does Dragonlord Placidusax. It is easier to defeat him if you use the given methods wisely.
While it is optional to take on the boss, a true Elden Ring fan would never want to miss out on it.
