In the Elden Ring, Tibia Mariner is a Field Boss. These crooked skeletons are dressed in lace and are on an eerie boat. With the help of zombie Skeletons and a loud horn, it controls its boat and charges the player. They are optional bosses because defeating them won't advance players in the Elden Ring.

The negative numbers represent the percentage of your damage that is thwarted. For instance, 40% of the harm of that type will be dealt and 60% will be canceled if the negation is 60.

Boss guide of the Tibia Mariner boss


Fight strategy


  • In order to follow the Tibia Mariner more readily as it teleports, players must stay on Torrent throughout the entire encounter.
  • Players need to use a spirit ash, such as the Lone Wolf Ashes, that can assist you distract the Skeletons.


Melee users


  • Yee Haw: Remain mounted on Torrent and run in for a couple hits before reversing course. The Tibia Mariner's attacks are slow enough that you probably won't get struck often, and the Skeletons are sluggish enough that you won't need to worry about them.
  • Slow and Steady: When battling on foot, concentrate on hurting the Tibia Mariner itself while attempting to avoid getting hit by the Skeletons. When the boss begins to strike, hit it a few times before dodging out of the way. Continue doing this, if you can, staying to its side or behind it. Skeletons will also be killed by the Crashing Wave assault, which can help calm the mob.


Magic and ranged users


  • Keep to your horse and retreat when assaulting. The Tibia Mariner moves slowly and lacks any means of countering ranged strikes outside its friends, who also move slowly. If they begin to encircle you, flee to the boss's opposite side and launch an attack from there.
