Elden Ring Regal Ancestor Spirit Location [All Obelisks]

Regal Ancestor Spirit Location with all the pillar locations and main Regal Ancestor Spirit is mentioned in this guide.

Like many other Bosses in the Elden Ring game, Regal Ancestor Spirit is another Boss that needs to be defeated if the player wants to progress with the game. Reaching its Location can be a bit challenging. So here I have compiled all the Locations and Pillars a player needs to cover to fight with the Regal Ancestor Spirit finally. 

Key Takeaways
  • The Regal Ancestor Spirit in Elden Ring is an optional boss offering valuable items and runes.
  • Resistances: Immune to Poison, Scarlet Rot, Frostbite, and Magic. Vulnerable to Holy and Fire damage.
  • Accessing the Boss: Light up all six obelisks in the Hallowhorn Grounds of Nokstella.
  • Obelisk Locations:
    1. Near the cliff in Ancestral Woods.
    2. Next to the brick road.
    3. Westward with a nearby Shaman singing.
    4. Behind a large rock in the backside of Ancestral Woods.
    5. Northwest of Ancestral Woods, guarded by giant rats near The Submerged Ruins.
    6. Behind a deer carcass near Hallowhorn Grounds. Beware of enemy archers.

Regal Ancestor Spirit Location 

Gaining access to the the Boss is not as simple as it may seem. The player has to first light up all the six obelisks. These six obelisks are located near the upper area of Hallowhorn Grounds in Nokron. The player has to go up the stairs to find these six pillars or obelisks before finding the real Regal Ancestor Spirit Location. Here are all the Pillar locations you need to know. 

First Pillar

Once the player enters the Eternal City, Nokron, the player runs through the Ancestral Woods through a broken bridge by riding a horse. Just near the cliff’s edge on the left side is the first Pillar. The player should encounter any enemy that comes in the way. Two Ancestral followers are patrolling the roadsides; I recommend being cautious of them.

Second Pillar

After lighting up the first Pillar, the player moves towards the second pillar in the woods, right next to the brick road. The first two Pillars are hardly some distance apart.

Third Pillar

The player has to return to the brick road again. Going westward, the player might find two Ancestral followers. There is also a Shaman singing near the Third Pillar. The Shaman is also an Ancestral follower. There is one way to ignore the Shaman, and that is if the player goes down the slope behind the brazier. After that, the player can light up the third Pillar which is required to reach the boss.

Fourth Pillar

Going to the backside of the Ancestral woods, there is a huge rock and behind that is the fourth Pillar. There are many woodland creatures along the way. There is also a Shaman singing. All the enemies will become more aggressive as the player goes towards the fourth Pillar. The fourth Pillar is also on top of a cliff.

Fifth Pillar

The fifth Pillar is a bit far northwest of the Ancestral woods. It is somewhere between the submerged ruins, and the player has to run through the broken overpass. Two giant rats have guarded the Pillar. The player has to kill both the rats. 

Some more Ancestral followers will be found near the fifth Pillar, who need to be fought and killed.

Sixth Pillar

While going towards the sixth Pillar, the player will often be targeted by arrows. The player has to jump below the cliff several times. The final obelisk is present behind the deer carcass near the Hallowhorn Grounds. Have a look at this Regal Ancestor Spirit Location too.

Teleport To Boss After Lighting Up Six Pillars

After the player has lit up all six pillars, he can see a deer carcass glowing in the dark, and then the tarnished can interact with the glowing deer. Interaction with the deer can teleport the player to the area of the boss. 

Defeating Regal Ancestor Spirit In Elden Ring  

Based on my gameplay experience, the best way to defeat it is:

  • Regal Ancestral Spirit surpasses the basic Ancestral Spirit Boss with higher resistance and absorption.
  • Strong in magic absorption, it resists Hemorrhage, Scarlet Rot, Poison, and Scarlet Rot.
  • Enhanced moves and abilities include a 75% health AOE charge, hopping, jumping, and a charged glowing attack.
  • Boss heals twice, introducing more damaging attacks with each recovery.
  • I would recommend strategically positioning yourself, avoiding attacks, and overshooting for a safe battle.
