After an eternity of waiting, Elden Ring was finally released on February 25, 2022. Thousands of players started their journey within its first hour of release, ready to take down menacing bosses in the dark world. Some of these foes are mandatory to beat to carry on with the gameplay, while some others are optional, like the Beastman of Farum Azula.
At the beginning of Elden Ring, the tarnished will start their journey in Limgrave. While exploring around, they might come across cave entrances like the Groveside Cave, where Beastman resides. While it may appear intimidating at first, it’s actually one of the easiest caves players can explore in Elden Ring.
Updated January 3rd, 2023 by Russ Boswell: Although players won’t find Farum Azula until much later in their game, they can do battle with a beastman from the area very early on. Finding the Beastman of Farum Azula in Elden Ring is pretty simple if players know where to look but he can pose a challenge for those who are unaware of his strengths. To better help players in how to beat the beastman of Farum Azula in Elden Ring, the following guide has been updated with a companion video.
Beastman Of Farum Azula Location In Elden Ring
Beastman of Farum Azula is hidden inside the Groveside Cave. After discovering the Site of Lost Grace in the Church of Elleh, walk further north to find the cave.
The tarnished need to be careful as there are a bunch of Nobles wandering around the area. Luckily, some of them don’t move so it’s fairly easy to backstab them and cause some serious damage. Eventually, players will encounter a Noble crouching down. To his left is the cave’s entrance that leads to Beastman of Farum Azula.
There is a Site of Lost Grace near the entrance of the boss fight. So it’s not a problem if the tarnished dies, as they will immediately respawn in the Groveside Cave.
Upon entering the cave, players will encounter several Wolves. Defeating them is fairly easy, just dodge their incoming attacks then land a few hits. Using any kind of spell is highly effective. Wolves drop some items like Thin Beast Bones and Lump of Flesh. After defeating all the enemies, head deeper into the cave until players reach Beastman of Farum Azula’s boss room.
How To Beat Beastman Of Farum Azula In Elden Ring
Upon entering, the Beastman of Farum Azula will unleash a battle cry scream and start attacking. For long-range players, approach him to trigger his attack combo, then retreat quickly.
After the enemy finishes his sequence, start attacking him with spells or arrows. Don’t stay too far from the Beastman or he will leap into the air and cause massive damage to players when caught.
As for close-range players, it will be a bit harder to beat the boss. The tarnished must also get close to the Beastman and trigger his combo. Once the boss finishes, quickly approach and retaliate. Players must keep an eye on their Stamina, otherwise, they might be unable to dodge incoming blows. Therefore, blocking should be done with moderation as the action consumes
Using Spirits Summons like the Lone Wolf Ashes can immensely help in beating this boss. Once players have killed him, his location won’t spawn a Site of Lost Grace. However, it will have a Site that will lead players back to the Graveside Cave’s entrance. As for rewards, the Beastman of Farum Azula will give the tarnished 1000 Rune and a Flamedrake Talisman.
Elden Ring is available now for PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, and Xbox One and Series X|S.
