In the Elden Ring, Regal Ancestor Spirit is a Boss. It is almost the same as the Ancestor Spirit, found in the Siofra River. It’s an animated spirit made up of a glowing pale blue light. The glowing light takes the shape of a big deer. The Regal Ancestor Spirit is known to attack with all its strength and move with grace. Although this Boss is an optional one, once the player has defeated it, more useful items and Runes can be taken control of.

Regal Ancestor Spirit Boss is a Legend that can easily drain the life of many spirits and regain their health. It is stronger against Poison, Scarlet Rot, Frostbite, and Magic but weak against Holy and Fire. The main location of the Regal Ancestor Spirit is in Nokron, Eternal City, and the closest site of Grace is the Ancestral Woods. To defeat this boss, multiplayer is allowed to play, and the player can also summon some of the best Ashen Remains if playing offline.

Gaining access to the Regal Ancestor Spirit 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 Elden Ring 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; the player has to be 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

To get to the 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.

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 location guide too.

Regal Ancestor Spirit After Lighting Up Six Pillars

After the player has lit up all the 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. 

The player will still have to defeat many wild creatures that come his way. The player will climb the stairs to reach the Hallowhorn Grounds, where the glowing deer is present. This is where the real battle between the player and the Regal Ancestor Spirit will take place.

Defeating Regal Ancestor Spirit In Elden Ring  

Regal Ancestral Spirit has more power than the simple ancestral Spirit Boss and also has a better resistance and absorption level. It has a great absorption power towards magic and great resistance to Hemorrhage, Scarlet Rot, Poison, and Scarlet Rot. 

The fight is almost the same as the fight against the Ancestor Spirit. Since Regal Ancestor Spirit is powerful, it can charge itself on an AOE spell when it has 75% remaining health. This Regal Ancestor Spirit Boss will have even better moves in which he will hop and jump towards the player and charge a glowing attack on the player. 

Regal Ancestor Spirit heals himself a second time too. The more he heals, the more moves will be added to his damaging attacks. The player has to get under him and overshoot his attacks to make himself safe and fight towards the end. For the boss’ rolling attack, the player can stay on a slightly different side. Reading about these shields might help you.
