You’ve probably been reminded by a friend to kill Mohg and Radahn ahead of the Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree expansion, but have you been reminded to kill the right Mohg?

So, there are two Mohgs – ‘The Omen’ and the ‘Lord of Blood.’ You will be able to find the first Mohg – Sewer Mohg – in the Subterranean Shunning-Grounds, which you will find in a chapel after the Forsaken Depths Site of Grace. Mohg is a demi-god, and also the brother of Morgott. This version – The Omen – is an illusion cast by the real Lord of Blood, and you will not have to defeat this version.

The real version, Mohg, Lord of Blood is found towards the end of the Mohgwyn Palace, and must be defeated alongside Radahn to begin the DLC. The room you find him in will be open, with the red light of the Cocoon illuminating the arena.

Defeating Mohg is one of the pre-requisites before starting the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC. In fact, you will be transported to the Realm of Shadow through the cocoon in his lair. Not too long ago, Bandai Namco shared a disclaimer that most players had not even beaten this optional boss yet – warning players that it’s a requirement.

This has followed with plenty of players desperate to defeat Morgott’s brother, though many have taken on the wrong version instead. Mohg, The Omen serves as a much less difficult version of the fight, and can be reached before the real Mohg is found. The Subterranean Shunning-Grounds is found in Leyndell, shortly after Liurnia.

This deceptive version of Mohg has been coined Sewer Mohg and Craigslist Mohg, partly due to the fact it’s a dulled-down version of the real fight. That said, it’s still incredibly difficult, and can serve as good training for the Lord of Blood.

This is a perfect example of the sense of scale that no game before Elden Ring has ever achieved. People are still discovering that the Mohg boss fight even exists in the base-game, let alone two versions that you can attempt.
