There are a ton of insanely cool spells in Elden Ring, but it’s hard enough to beat the visual spectacle of pulling out a giant magic bow and shooting a slew of arrows at your enemies. If you want to try doing it yourself, you’ll need to get your hands on Loretta’s bending. In this guide, we’ll tell you where to find the boss that drops this sorcery.
Loretta’s Mastery Explained
Loretta’s Mastery is a ritual that requires 46 Intelligence to cast. It fires four large magic arrows from a large bow and acts as a more powerful version of Loretta’s large bow, meaning it can deal solid damage, but at the cost of a little too much of your precious FP .
Loretta’s mastery item description reads:
Sorcery used by Loretta, Knight of the Haligtree. Creates a large magic bow and fires four large arrows simultaneously. Charging improves potency. Hold to keep the large arrows nocked. Developed by Loretta after her long and bloody journey in search of a place where Albinauric people could live in peace.
Where to find Loretta’s Mastery
Loretta’s Mastery can be obtained by defeating Loretta, Knight of the Haligtree in Miquella’s Haligtree. This optional late-game area requires getting a few coins from a medallion and taking a special elevator to a well-hidden biome. Fortunately, you can follow our Millicent quest guide to find everything you need and get to the Haligtree.
Once you make it to the Haligtree, you will face a daunting challenge. You’ll have to fight your way through some branches and down the tree through a series of platforms and buildings filled with difficult and sometimes cleverly placed enemies looking to stop you from descending. It’s a mostly linear descent, though, and once you reach the bottom you’ll encounter Loretta, Knight of the Haligtree.
Loretta, Knight of the Haligtree is similar to her Spectral form that you fought earlier in the game at Caria Manor. As such, she’s surprisingly easy for a late-game encounter, with highly choreographed attack patterns that can be dodged with little effort. Melee users can do short work on her by simply blocking her physical attacks and rolling through her fairly slow magic projectiles. Ranged and magic users should have an even easier time just staying mobile. When she drops, you’ll get Loretta’s bending for the trouble.
