I want to talk about how to find and beat the Iron Virgin in Elden Ring. It’s a secret set of bosses. First I want to tell you how to find the boss and all the information that leads up to it, and then I’ll explain to you the actual boss strategy.

In Liurnia of the Lakes, you’ll eventually want to find the Scenic Isle Site of Grace. There you will find Patches the Untethered. However, he will not appear here, I don’t think, unless you found him in the Murkwater Cave back in Limgrave. If he’s not here, just walk up the river where you fight Bloody Finger Nejirus and look for a cave along a side wall and you’ll find Patches there. Fight him, let him live, and then you’ll start his questline. Once you talk to him, you want to select the talk option from his dialogue menu. Then he will tell you the story that he heard of how to get closer to the Erdtree via a shortcut.

How to approach The Iron Virgin in Elden Ring

Once you have this knowledge yourself, you can just go ahead and do it. So you want to continue your adventure until you reach the Academy of Raya Lucaria. Then maybe 15 percent of the way through that area, you will see the giant water wheel in question. You can get onto it once you get near the Schoolhouse Classroom site of grace. So feel free to activate that and then backtrack to the water wheel. You just want to jump on the water wheel and take it all the way down. At the bottom, you will need to jump down, but you’ll land safely.

There is an Iron Virgin in this area. I recommend doing is running around collecting all the treasures and then you want to deliberately die to this abductor version. You need to die to it by getting caught in its arms. I don’t think just dying to the mechanical parts of it will count and I do think you need to be abducted by it. So once you do that, you’ll be transported to Volcano Manor. Then you just adventure through the cave there and eventually you will stumble upon the Abductor Virgin’s boss fight.

How To Easily Beat The Iron Virgin

I do suggest using a Rune Arc for this boss battle, because you are going to want as much health and stamina as humanly possible for you throughout this fight. This is a 2v1 fight. The first iron virgin version has the wheels, and the other one has swinging sickles. In my opinion, it is easier to take down the one with the wheels first. It is the most mobile and can chase you down really fast. But you always need to keep an ear out for the sickle one, because when it locks its hands it’s going to throw a sickle at you.

So what you want to do is when you hear its hands lock, wait like half a second or maybe one second and then roll to the side. If it’s to your right, you want to roll forward or backwards. If it’s to your left or right, you want to or if it’s in front of you, you want to roll left or right. That’s the general strategy for the 2v1 part of this. I really do not recommend trying to kill the second one first because the wheel one is always going to be chasing you down.

Iron Virgin Fight Strategy

The other thing that I really want to call out for this fight is the arena itself. You’ll notice that there are cages all around. So maybe you’re supposed to jump on top of them and then possibly deal damage to the heads. Maybe that’s a strategy. All in all, you really just want to keep your distance from the sickle one and then keep baiting the wheel virgin to come after you. It is basically going to try to chase you down, and then you want to just go for it. You don’t have to wait for the arms to be exposed to deal damage.
