Elden Ring: How to Beat Mohg [Cheese Method]

Fighting Mohg without the Elden Ring Mohg Cheese could be quite difficult. The previous known method was patched. Read for the new method.

Elden Ring has a plethora of bosses, and each boss is unique with their deadly attacks. Still, all are capable of making gamers frustrated as they struggle to defeat them. Mohg, The Lord of Blood is no different as gamers have struggled to beat him. With his annoying move set like the red rings and dark wings to aid him in flight, beating him can be quite the challenge. However, the painstakingly difficult fight will become child’s play with the Elden Ring Mohg, Lord of Blood Cheese that is about to be discussed.

Key Takeaways
  • Bind Mohg with Mohg Shackle 3 times before the fog wall, then attack together while counting your strikes.
  • Be cautious of stagger, as it can free Mohg.
  • If Mohg breaks free, use long-ranged weapons or spells like Comet Azur.
  • To attack continuously without staggering Mohg, use the Scarlet Rot incantation.
  • For a warrior approach, stack Golden Seeds and Sacred Tears.
  • Mix Crystal Tear and Flask of Wondrous Pysick at a site of grace to negate Mohg’s curse and heavy damage.
  • Melee builds like Vampire or Greatsword can employ Mimic Summon for a better chance against Mohg.

For the Elden Ring Mohg Cheese, you will need Mohg’s shackle to tie him down. You can easily get to the shackles from the Leyndell Catacombs Site of Grace in the Subterranean Shunning Grounds. These grounds are known to have a Rune arc as well as a Stonesword key that you can use on Imp Statues.

There is also another boss on these grounds called the Mohg, the Omen. However, that is not the boss we’re focused on, and neither does the cheese method work on him.

Regardless, once you reach Leyndell Catacombs Site of Grace, take the steps going upstairs and head left into the sewers. There will be two lobsters guarding the item, but you can run across them to the right. Mohg’s shackle will be on the floor, and you can pick it up easily.

Using the Mohg’s Shackle

Based on my experience, the easiest way to cheese Mohg is through the following steps:

  1. Obtain Mohg’s Shackle.
  2. Stand next to the fogged wall where you fought Mohg (die to him first if it’s your first encounter).
  3. Use Mohg’s Shackle three times at the wall’s edge to bind Mohg in one spot.
  4. Enter the fogged wall, and Mohg will be stationary.
  5. Attack him carefully to deplete his health, avoiding melee staggering.
  6. Consider ranged weapons or spells like Comet Azur or Rotten Breath for continuous damage.

This strategy ensures an easier encounter with Mohg in Elden Ring.

Alternate Methods

If you want a fair fight against Mohg in Elden Ring, I would recommend doing the following:

  1. Ensure ample healing resources like Golden Seeds and Sacred Tears to counter his health-draining red rings.
  2. Craft a potion using Purifying Crystal Tear from Eleonora (Second Church of Marika) to nullify the curse effect from Mohg’s attacks.
  3. Consider using summons like Mimic Summon for melee builds or spells like Comet Azur for a strong ranged approach.
  4. The Astrologer build and Comet Azur build are effective choices against Mohg, allowing you to deal significant damage as he approaches.


With the Elden Ring Mohg cheese, the boss fight should become a lot easier. You practically get to skip all the fighting and his terrible second phase with dark wings. You also won’t have to worry about his red rings that suck away your health. But if you do not want to break his character completely, then there are alternate methods that you can employ as well.

Overall, it is a great fight where you do get a great rune and 420,000 Runes. The Runes are not as effective considering the many farming methods that are out there. However, it is still good to level up your character, especially if you use the cheese on Mohg early in the game.
