Accompanied by a snake, Messmer presents a unique challenge to players who must navigate both his ranged and melee attacks.

Curseblade Labirith will probably be an optional boss, suggesting defeating the enemy is unnecessary to progress in the DLC.

The Ghostflame Dragon

The Ghostflame Dragon is an optional boss in the “Shadow of the Erdtree” DLC for “Elden Ring,” in the starting area of the expansion.

Moreover, the boss shares a similar model to Flying Dragon Agheel from the base game but features a skeletal appearance with mummified skin.

The enemy seems like a manageable challenge compared to other bosses. However, its dark fire attacks still offer a significant fight.
