A glitch in Elden Ring Makes Facing Mohg Easier to Manage
One Elden Ring gamer has been assisted by a helpful glitch in making the Mohg, Lord of Blood boss battle much easier. Glitches in games like this can be a bit of a toss-up about their usefulness. Occasionally, they can be considered slight bugs that won’t cause any damage to the fight overall. On the other hand, some of them can make the fight more difficult, or even make it impossible to win. Nevertheless, there are still those where players can exploit them to dodge entire sections of the battle. In this case, that’s exactly what happened.
Mohg, Lord of Blood is one of the optional adversaries the player may face in Elden Ring. This foe is the twin brother of Morgott, who has fully embraced his Omen blood and possesses the ability to manipulate blood flame magic. As a boss encounter, Mohg may not be as tough as Malenia, as a skilled Elden Ring participant can defeat him in one blow at level 1, but he can still be a nuisance due to his capacity to create areas of flames that cause a bleed. One of his chief mechanics is Blood Curse, which he builds up in the player during Phase 1 and then drains the HP of the player during Phase 2.
During one battle, a player encountered a strange glitch that quickly ended the fight. A video was posted to Reddit’s r/Eldenring which showed the glitch during the fight against Mohg, Lord of Blood. The player was avoiding the enemy’s attacks and flames of blood when suddenly Mohg flew up and dropped the fire onto the ground and dashed away, but got stuck in the air on a piece of geometry. Instead of behaving like the bugged music-loving Mohg in the Subterranean Shunning-Grounds, this one just died.

In the remarks, other Redditors shared their accounts regarding the bug, most of which related to the dragons needing to be combated in Elden Ring. They suggested that the glitch is used as a way to prevent soft locks, by deliberately destroying the stuck boss to stop any potential problems.
One glitch worked in favor of the player; however, other glitches can make things much worse. An example of this is a Black Blade Kindred glitching and stomping an Elden Ring player to death. While this can be disheartening, discovering glitches that make the battle easier can be beneficial for players who have difficulty with powerful enemies, allowing them to enjoy the game without feeling overwhelmed.
Elden Ring is accessible to the public for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and the Xbox Series X/S.
