First Mini-Boss in Elden Ring 

The first mini-boss in Elden Ring is none other than the infamous Tree Sentinel, whom you encounter near the Church of Elleh. You can either fight him during your first encounter or run past him and proceed to explore other areas and battle him later.

We recommend fighting the Tree Sentinel, as he drops 3200 Runes and the Golden Halberd, a must-have early-game weapon for Strength builds who want to use Holy damage combined with physical damage to take out enemies and bosses in a few hits. 

To some of the new players, defeating Tree Sentinel might prove to be a difficult task. But don’t you worry, as we already have a handy guide on how to cheese Tree Sentinel boss fight in Elden Ring

Here, have a look at the Tree Sentinel’s damage negation and absorptions:

  • Standard: 10
  • Slash: 35
  • Strike: 10
  • Pierce: 10
  • Magic: 20
  • Fire: 40
  • Lightning: 0 (-10 while raining)
  • Holy: 40

While the Tree Sentinel is immune to critical attacks, you can always parry his physical attacks to stagger him for a short time, then attack him to deal 10% more damage.
