ENEMIES IN THE AREA N/A
BOSSES Draconic Tree Sentinel

The Capital Outskirts is a huge area and is good for invasions in general. But in the whole Outskirts, the place where the Draconic Tree Sentinel is present is the best one. The area is free of other enemies, which makes it easier to maneuver around your opponent.

Moreover, because there is a Draconic Tree Sentinel out there, you can lure your enemy there to initiate the boss battle during the invasion. The lack of enemies in the area can help you a lot in Invasions, so this area is not much preferable. 

  • Draconic Tree Sentinel helps out a lot and can deal with your opponents easily. 
  • You can use the corridor leading to the Royal Capital in case there is no Draconic Tree Sentinel. 
  • If the opponent has already killed the Draconic Tree Sentinel, then you will have to fight them alone.
  • There are no other enemies near the area.

14. Nokron City

ENEMIES IN THE AREA Ancestral Follower, Lesser Crucible Knight, Fallen Hawks Soldier, Silver Tear, Silver Sphere, Night Maiden, Nox Swortstress
BOSSES Mimic Tear, Regal Ancestor Spirit, Valiant Gargoyle, Valiant Gargoyle (twin-blade)

The Nokron City has a very complex structure and various types of enemies in it, which makes it good for invasion. It has both open areas for 1v1 battles as well as different structures where you can hide and use stealth to defeat your opponents. The starting area has some platforming sections that can be used to drop your opponents for instant kills

Once you have entered the Ancestral Forest, you can find Ancestral Followers, which are extremely difficult enemies to deal with. They are archers and hence a great distraction for the opponent during an invasion. Moreover, the area is completely optional, and many players ignore it. 

  • Complex structure aids in hiding and stealth.
  • Diverse enemy types aid during invasions.
  • Siofra River is a superior area compared to Nokron City.
  • Ancestral Followers are less aggressive.

13. Stormveil Castle

ENEMIES IN THE AREA Exile Soldier, Troll, Omen, Living Jar, Commoner, Rotten Stray, Banished Knight, Warhawk
BOSSES Grafted Scion, Lion Guardian, Ulcerated Tree Spirited, Godrick the Grafted

The Stormveil Castle is the first dungeon in the game, but it is not to be taken lightly. The whole area is very complex, with more than a few entrances, traps, and enemies. You can easily get lost in the area and use the many different enemies to deal with your opponent. You can lead the other person from the front gate and have them face a barrage of attacks that will instantly kill them.

The newer players will fall for the traps, but they won’t amount to much as invasions are very costly because of Bloody Festring Fingers.

  • Complex dungeon layout with deadly shortcuts and adversaries.
  • Abundant traps and enemies offer a challenge, especially for newcomers.
  • Experienced players are familiar with traps and enemies.
  • People don’t visit much after finishing this area.

12. Siofra River

ENEMIES IN THE AREA Ancestral Follower, Boar, Clayman, Deer, Eagle, Giant Crab, Giant Dragonfly, Land Octopus, Giant Land Octopus, Giant Poison Flower, Rat, Sheep, Teardrop Scarab
BOSSES Ancestor Spirit, Dragonkin Soldier

The underground Siofra River is one of the best places to invade in Elden Ring. It has a huge area that you can easily get lost in. You can use the open area to your advantage as well as use the different structures to hide from opponents and stealthy kill them. You can use the open area to your advantage because of the enemies in this area. 

The Ancestral Followers are extremely powerful and can aim really well. The arrows will always hit unless you dodge at the right time. Once you have lured the other player into the open area, they can easily kill your opponent.

  • Deadly enemies and Ancestral Followers pose high-risk challenges.
  • Diverse terrain offers strategic cover against opponents.
  • Low traffic from high-level players leads to fewer rewards.
  • Strategic positioning of Ancestral Followers is crucial for success.

11. Leyndell Royal Capital

ENEMIES IN THE AREA Albinauric, Commoner, Broken Statue, Duelist, Errant Sorcerer, Fingercreeper, Giant Miranda Sprout, Guardian, High Page, Land Squirt, Large Oracle Envoy, Leonine Misbegotten, Lesser Fingercreeper, Leyndell Soldier, Leyndell Knight, Miranda Sprout, Misbegotten, Oracle Envoy, Omenkiller, Page, Perfumer, Rat, Skeletal Militiaman, Skeletal Slime, Skeletons, Skeletal Snail, Rotten Stray, Vargram, The Raging Wolf
BOSSES Divine Bridge Golem, Crucible Tree Knight, Erdtree Avatar, Ulcerated Tree Spirit, Lion Guardian, Valiant Gargoyle, Black Knife Assassin, Godfrey (Shade), Morgott, The Omen King

The Royal Capital is one of the best places to invade in Elden Ring. It is one of the largest areas as well as one of the most complex ones. You can use the terrain to drop the opponents to their deaths. Especially if you are fighting the enemy on top of the tree leading to the top of the castle, then it is even easier. 

You can also fight the opponent within the streets of the capital. There, you can lead the other player straight to the Tree Spirit Boss in one of the streets. However, once the host of the invasion has burned the Erdtree, the capital is filled with ashes and loses its former glory as a great invasion spot. 

  • Vast area with many tough enemies.
  • High places let you easily push enemies off.
  • High areas are risky for both you and your enemies.
  • Becomes less useful for invasions after Erdtree is burnt.

10. Elphael Brace Of Haligtree

ENEMIES IN THE AREA Haligtree Knight, Haligtree Soldier, Lesser Cleanrot Knight, Lesser Crystalian, Lesser Kindred of Rot, Putrid Avatar, Ulcerated Tree Spirit, Revenant
BOSSES Malenia Blade of Miquella

Once someone has defeated Loretta, you can access the Elphael Brace of Haligtree. It is a complete castle inside the Haligtree. It is very complex and isn’t a really big area. You are mostly in concealed places, and it is a very good place for close-quarter combat. The whole place can cause scarlet rot, which can be devastating for anyone.

The enemies in the area are also really tough. They can do melee as well as long-ranged combat, which makes them tough. There is also an open-world boss. You can lead your opponent there and make easy work of them. However, it is a completely optional area, so most players here are experienced.

  • Small spaces, tough foes.
  • Dangerous due to Scarlet Rot.
  • Experienced invaders as casual players avoid it.
  • Scarlet Rot is risky for you too.

9. Miquella’s Haligtree

ENEMIES IN THE AREA Battle Mage, Giant Ant, Giant Miranda Sprout, Lesser Spirit-Caller Snail, Misbegotten, Oracle Envoy, Large Orcale Envoy, Giant Oracle Envoy, Miranda Sprout, Putrid Corpse, Teardrop Scarab
BOSSES Loretta Haligtree Knight

The Haligtree, though optional, stands out as one of the best places to invade in Elden Ring. It’s a vast area with branches perfect for swiftly defeating opponents. These branches swarm with enemies, offering opportunities to end invasions quickly. Swiftly defeating opponents during invasions is key.

Even beyond the branches, you can confront invasions on the balconies. There are many aggressive Misbegotten lurks, that are useful for distracting foes and winning easily. However, there’s a crucial point about Haligtree: while it’s easy to dispatch enemies by making them fall, it’s also easy for you to fall. It’s a situation with high risks but potentially high rewards.

  • High tree branches help in causing opponents to fall.
  • Balconies host tough enemies, causing opponents to rush and potentially fall.
  • Risky for both you and your opponent due to potential falls.
  • The lower section also poses dangers.

8. Volcano Manor

ENEMIES IN THE AREA Abductor Virgin, Albinauric, Bloodhound Knight, Burning Slug, Inquisitor Ghiza, Mage-Serpent, Man-Serpent, Omenkiller, Serpent Snail, Teardrop Scarab, Wandering Nobles
BOSSES Abductor Virgins, Godskin Noble, God-Devouring Serpent, Magma Wyrm, Rykard Lord of Blasphemy

Rykard the Blasphemous House is infamous for its dangers: lava, enemies, and traps. It’s an ideal place for eliminating foes and seizing their belongings. The area attracts invasions since it’s mid-game and players possess ample runes. The sole restricted section is the front gate guarded by Tanith and other NPCs.

  • Challenging levels with strong enemies and tough bosses.
  • Lava-filled areas offer strategic advantages in battles.
  • Lava harms both foes and you, risking defeat.

7. Greyoll’s Dragonbarrow

ENEMIES IN THE AREA Blackflame Monk, Black Blade Kindred, Chanting Winged Dame, Giant Bat, Giant Rat, Lesser Dragon, Lesser Runebear, Lone Wolf, Redmane Knight, School of Graven Mages, Springhare, Vulgar Militiamen
BOSSES Battlemage Hugues, Beastman of Farum Azula (Duo), Bell Bearing Hunter, Black Blade Kindred, Cleanrot Knight (Duo), Elder Dragon Greyoll, Flying Dragon Greyll, Godskin Apostle, Night’s Cavalry, Putrid Avatar, Putrid Crystalian Trio, Putrid Tree Spirit

Caelid has many places, but Greyoll’s Dragonbarrow is one of the best places to invade in the Elden Ring. It’s swarming with tough dragons, perfect for distracting opponents. There’s also a Corrupted Tree Spirit you can use. A Dragon boss guards the bridge to the Bestial Sanctum, a prime farming spot for runes. The Black Blade Kindred boss is nearby, making it a top invasion spot.

  • Dragons are tough enemies, great for invasions.
  • Beastial Sanctum is a good rune-farming spot.
  • Few hiding spots due to the open area, challenging for stealth.

6. Liurnia of Lakes

ENEMIES IN THE AREA Abductor Virgin, Adan, Abnormal Stone Crusher, Albinauric, Ancestral Follower, Avionette Soldier, Burning Slug, Crystal Snail, Depraved Perfumer, Festering Fingerprint Vyke, Fingercreeper, Fire Monk, Flame Chariot, Frenzied Villager, Glintstone Sorcerer, Guillemot, Grafted Scion, Imp, Land Octopus, Land Squirt, Lazuli Sorcerer, Mausoleum Soldier, Mausoleum Knight, Noble Sorcerer, Omen, Preceptor Miriam, Raya Lucaria Knight, Raya Lucaria Soldier, Skeletal Militiamen, Skeleton Mage, Spirit Jellyfish, Troll Knight, Twinsage
BOSSES Adan, Thief of Fire, Alecto, Black Knife Ringleader, Bell Bearing Hunter, Bloodhound Knight, Black Knife Assassin, Bols, Carian Knight, Cleanrot Knight, Crystilian Spear and Staff, Death Rite Bird, Erdtree Avatar, Glintstone Dragon, Godskin Noble, Magma Wyrm, Night’s Cavalry, Onyx Lord, Red Wolf of Redagon, Rennala, Queen of the Full Moon, Royal Knight Loretta, Royal Revenant, Tibia Mariner

The Liurnia of Lakes is one of the largest areas in the Elden Ring and quite easily one of the best places to invade. The whole area is filled with enemies, bosses, caves, and much more. There are patches of trees, ruins, and even giant rocks.

If you are near the Walking Mausoleum in the Liurnia of Lakes, then lure your enemy to it. There is a full army of spirits right at its feet. When they are busy fighting that army, either you can kill them, or they can get stomped by the Mausoleum. You can also find a Glint-stone Dragon sitting right over the Key to Raya Lucaria.

  • Vast space with structures, caves, enemies, and a legacy dungeon.
  • Ideal for duels and sneaky rune farming.
  • Challenging for magic users who need hiding spots for spell setup.

5. First Step Of Grace

ENEMIES IN THE AREA Abnormal Stone Cluster, Godrick Knight, Godrick Soldier, Land Octopus, Godrick Foot Soldier, Eagle, Demi-human, Exile Soldier
BOSSES Tree Sentinel, Flying Dragon Agheel

Most people might undermine the first Grace in the Open World of Elden Ring. However, it can be a really good spot for invasions. The first grace has a lot of players come back to it. Most players even wait there for duels, invasions, or to help out lower-level players with bosses. 

Right in front of the Grace is the very first Tree Sentinel. On the right, you can find a Dragon in the marsh. These bosses are the best way to deal with new players. Because new players will not know of them, it will be easier to deceive them and easily take the win.

  • Nearby powerful bosses are available if the host hasn’t defeated them yet.
  • Ideal for duels, especially without Tree Sentinel around.
  • Trouble if bosses are already defeated, especially for magic users.

4. Mohgwyn’s Palace

ENEMIES IN THE AREA Albinauric, Giant Crow, Nameless White Mask, Putrid Corpse, Blistered Stray, Sanguine Noble
BOSSES Mohg, Lord of Blood

The Mohgwyn’s Palace is another optional area that many people can skip unknowingly. However, it makes up for an amazing place for invasions. It has one of the best farming locations in Elden Ring, known as the Bird Farm. That itself is reason enough to make it a really good place for invasions.

As you go deeper into Mohgwyn’s Palace, the enemies keep getting extremely tough. The layout of the Palace is also very complex, and it’s dark all over the area. You can hide inside the dark and wait for the enemy to come inside. As soon as they do, you can stealthily kill them in the dark. 

  • Good for farming; defeat enemies with lots of runes.
  • The dark area helps in dealing with opponents.
  • Darkness helps with magic; melee combat is harder.

3. Consecrated Snowfields

ENEMIES IN THE AREA Alabaster Lord, Albinauric Wolfback Archer, Anastasia, Tarnished-Eater, Crystal Snail, Cleanrot Knight, Dragonskin Solider, Kaiden Sellsword, Land Octopus, Mausoleum Knight, Mausoleum Soldier, Misbegotten, Putrid Grave Warden Duelist, Rotten Duelist, Rotten Stray, Vulgar Militiamen, Wandering Nobles
BOSSES Astel, Stars of Darkness, Death Rite Bird, Great Wyrm Theodorix, Misbegotten Crusader, Night’s Cavalry, Putrid Avatar, Putrid Grave Warden Duelist

Most of the time, open fields are only good for duels in the Elden Ring. However, the Consecrated Snowfield is the opposite of most of them. That is because it is filled to the brim with enemies. Some areas are really foggy. You can lure your opponents straight to a lot of different enemies roaming around the big open field and easily kill them as they are being distracted by them. 

There are also quite a few bosses that can be found here. The Death Rite Bird is one that many can use in invasions as they are fast and can do very heavy damage. There is also a Wyrm named Great Wrym Theodorix in the area that you can lure your opponents to.

  • Vast open space for exciting duels, with tunnels, caves, and plenty of enemies.
  • Foggy areas allow stealth kills and are the best places to invade in the Elden Ring.
  • Large open areas may lack nearby enemies, posing a problem at times.

2. Mountaintops Of Giants

ENEMIES IN THE AREA Abnormal Stone Cluster, Avionette Soldier, Bloody Finger Okina, Burning Slug, Lesser Demi-Human Chief, Fire Monk, Flame Guardian, Knight of Zamor, Lion Guardian, Marionette Soldier, Misbegotten, Living Jar, Rotten Stray, Skeletal Slime, Spirit Jellyfish, Troll
BOSSES Ancient Hero of Zamor, Borealis the Freezing Fog, Chief Guardian Arghanthy, Commander Niall, Death Rite Bird, Erdtree Avatar, Fire Giant, Godskin Apostle & Godskin Noble, Roundtable Knight Vyke

The Mountaintops of Giants make up for an amazing place for invasion. There are a lot of different areas where you can defeat your opponents. The enemies up here are some of the toughest you can fight. They can easily kill even the most experienced of players in a few hits. 

There are different structures that you can find in the area, and it helps you to be stealthy. There are a few areas with undead enemies, like the Death Rite Bird boss. You can also find Castle Sol in the Mountaintops which is a very tough dungeon as well. There are some other good places where you can defeat your invasion enemies. 

  • Tough enemies & bosses for invasion advantage.
  • Diverse structures for hiding & tactical advantage.
  • Opportunities to make opponents fall.
  • Highly skilled players make direct fights tough.
  • End-game area difficulty for combat.

1. Crumbling Farum Azula

farum azula invasion

ENEMIES IN THE AREA Azula Beastman, Banished Knight, Crucible Knight, Draconic Tree Sentinel, Farum Azula Dragon, Lesser Crucible Knight, Lesser Wormface, Rotten Stray, Recusant Bernahl, Warhawk
BOSSES Dragonlord Placidusax, Godskin Duo, Maliketh

The Crumbling Farum Azula is one of, if not the best, places to invade. It has it all in one single location. Tough enemies, extremely complex structure, and things you can use as traps against your opponents. The enemies are some of the toughest ones because the area is an end-game area. You can also find some of the toughest bosses here too.

The area itself is complex enough to make you go in circles. Many flying enemies can be very annoying during platforming. You can use them to distract the opponent and push them off a ledge. If you are lucky enough, then you can just push them off. There are a lot of other ways that you can use here, which makes it the best place to invade the Elden Ring. 

  • Best for invading with tough foes and intricate designs.
  • Sky location for easy enemy elimination.
  • Challenging open-field bosses.
  • Risk of falling to death when attacking enemies from above.

My Thoughts On The Ideal Places To Invade

I have over months of experience in Elden Ring, so with my experience, I think Crumbling Farum Azula and the Mountaintops of the Giants are the best invasion spots. Both places have tons of bosses and enemies in the area, which makes it easier for you to defeat the person whose world you are invading. Over time, like me, you can find some exploitable spots that can trick invaders, allowing for an easy kill and loot-grabbing afterward.

I don’t think invading the early-game areas is an ideal choice, as the bosses from those areas would have already been defeated. So, make sure to go to a late-game area where there are tougher enemies that could help you to win the fight.

These are all the best places to invade in Elden Ring. Before you invade anyone, you need to be well prepared for it. You need the best weapons and best armor, and if you are a mage, then you definitely need the best magic spells. Many players can be much more experienced than you, which can lead to your defeat. Invasions can be very beneficial, so you must do everything beforehand to ensure victory.
