How to Beat Inquisitor Ghiza in Elden Ring

First of all, it’s important to point out that Inquisitor Ghiza will be an opponent capable of dealing high damage with his colossal weapon, which also features a good range. To counter that, we recommend that you make use of either a fast-hitting weapon, such as a Katana, or a great/colossal class weapon, as the Katana will allow you to get the upper hand and inflict status ailments while using larger weapons will increase your reach and damage, but at the cost of mobility.

With that said, magic and ranged focused builds will have an easier time facing the enemy, as even though Ghiza is capable of dealing massive damage, he needs to slow down to perform his attacks and follow-ups, making him an easy target for projectiles and spells.

For those using melee builds, on the other hand, we recommend that you stay on your toes and only attack after he finishes his move or it’s preparing his follow-up. Using weapon skills is highly recommended for this fight, as they will be able to deal massive damage at short windows. Using the environment to your advantage is also a must, so don’t forget to stay mobile and use the table at the center if needed.

Elden Ring is currently available for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC, exclusively via Steam. You can check out our review of the From Software’s newest epic here.
