Elden Ring: How To Beat Adan, Thief Of Fire

"Elden Ring" is filled to the brim with different boss fights you can take on — some optional, some not. While the main bosses provide a tougher challenge than most of the optional bosses, some of those side bosses can be quite tricky to take down. If you aren't the type of player who is performing no-hit speedruns, you will likely need a bit of help to take down the game's toughest foes. One of the ways to take on optional boss fights is via Evergaols, gray circular areas that are scattered around the Lands Between. These Evergaols usually contain a single boss for you to fight.

Adan, Thief of Fire can be found in the Malefactor's Evergaol in the southeast part of Liurnia. This fight can be tough, since it's found early in the game and Adan wields, you guessed it, fire magic. In the lore, Adan traveled to the Mountaintops of the Giants and stole some of their fire. Here is how to take him down.

How to defeat Adan, Thief of Fire in Elden Ring

According to GameRant, Adan, Thief of Fire functions like a scripted invasion instead of a regular boss fight. This means he is roughly the same size as the player character and he can heal once in the fight. It's also important to note that you cannot summon spirit ashes for Evergaol fights, so you will have to take him down yourself. Adan wields a large flail and uses fire magic when he attacks. He has a slight resistance to fire damage, but most attacks deal plenty of damage to him.

Adan's biggest attack is a giant fireball that tracks the player. This deals massive damage but can be avoided by strafing away from it or timing a dodge roll. Outside of that, he has massive combos with his flail. While Adan doesn't have a single massive weakness to exploit, he is easily staggered. This means using a large weapon and two-handing it can result in him being staggered frequently, opening up a chance to perform critical hits. He is also susceptible to ranged attacks, since those will keep him from regaining his poise. Even throwing knives can be used to keep him staggered. As long as you can avoid the big fireball and continuously stagger him, Adan, Thief of Fire should be taken down pretty easily.
