Night’s Cavalry Location 

This boss appears in almost every region of Elden Ring. This includes places like Caelid, Limgrave, Consecrated Snowfield, Forbidden Lands, and many places of Liurnia. I have included all locations in the guide below. 


First Night’s cavalry encounter happens on the bridge near the Lake Agheel Sight of Lost Grace. This boss is very challenging, and since it will be your first time fighting it, ensure you are completely prepared.

A good strategy to defeat these terrifying bosses is to kill their mounts first since their horses have a separate health bar. Doing this will knock them to the ground and make them vulnerable to a critical attack.  

The Night’s Cavalry in Limgrave drops the ash of war repeating thrust and around 2400 runes. 

Weeping Peninsula  

The Night’s cavalry in the weeping peninsula will wield a different weapon than the one you encountered in Limgrave. It will spawn near Castle Morne Rampart Site of Lost Grace, next to the nomadic merchants

The hardest Night’s Cavalry will spawn here, and it will not be the only threat as there will be a lot of other enemies you will have to face as well. There are two Night’s Cavalry that will spawn here. These bosses spawn in a caravan near the Inner Consecrated Snowfield Site of Grace.

These bosses will drop Ancient Dragon Smithing Stone, which allows you to fully upgrade a weapon as well as Night’s Cavalry Armor Set.  

Strategies To Beat Night’s Cavalry Field Boss

Due to their fast-moving ability, these bosses can cover a lot of ground quickly. The Night’s Cavalry also becomes a lot harder to defeat over time. The boss duo you will have to face in the end will be the hardest one, so observe the enemy’s moveset to predict its movements. 

Spellcasters And Ranged Attack Strategies 

If you’re a spellcaster or a ranged player, this boss will give you a very hard time since this boss can easily dodge your ranged weapon attacks. 

Other than sorcery, players can use some of the best incantations dealing with Holy Damage to finish off the boss. If you are a Bow user, then you should go for a Shortbow that fires way more arrows than the other ones so that you can land more shots on this enemy.  

Melee Users Strategies 

For melee-build players, punishing the Night’s Cavalry is fairly easy, as they can parry all their attacks. Try to stay on the enemy’s left side to dodge its attacks more easily. Use some of the best weapons in your arsenal to kill the horse of Night’s Cavalry. This will help you land more critical hits on the boss. 

Night’s Cavalry Weaknesses  

There are three main weaknesses I uncovered of Night’s Cavalry:

  • Holy Damage 
  • Lightning Damage  
  • Thrusting Physical Damage
