Eldritch Council is one of the Bosses in Death's Gambit. Bosses are located through out the game and award special loot upon completion as well as drop significant Shards.



The wind carries whispers of the Crimson Court, a secret society beneath Aldwynn run by Inquisitor Holdrem. All came to eventually know the prison spire as their journey's end. Thoughts of betrayal threatened her seat as warden, and she swiftly snuffed the opposition from her council. They eventually returned, obedient and changed.

Eldritch Council Strategy

  • Four red crystals hang in the air at the start of the fight. Destroying one of the crystals will prompt the boss to summon a minion that you must defeat before the blood rises too high.
    • The first crystal spawns a minion that summons teal orbs that slowly drop from the top. Damaging them will cause them to rise back up and start their descent again. If they touch the floor, they create a large explosion that hit pretty hard.
    • The second crystal summons a minion that creates blood droplets that explode outward in a fan pattern. Just dodge through them, though they do not do much damage if you are hit by one or two.
    • The third crystal summons a minion that creates teal orbs that will pull you close to them before exploding
    • The fourth crystal summons a minion that will spawn red blobs. They are slow moving and weak but will poison you if you touch them. They have large hitboxes, so rolling through them can be difficult.
      • During these four sequences, the boss will fire whitish fireballs at you that explode when they hit the floor, split into two more fireballs that will slowly travel, then detonate, to the left and right of the original explosion. Standing where the first explosion took place is a safe spot to avoid the subsequent blasts.
  • Once the four crystals and their minions are defeated, the boss will drop down to the arena, where you can damage her.
  • Also watch the blood raising at your feet, once it reaches your character you will get damaged, as well as raising your Infection meter. It will get reset everytime you destroy a crystal, making the minion phases essentially a DPS test. You can avoid most of the damage by jumping. 



Eldritch Council Notes & Tips

  • If you have enough range damage (bow/spell), you can damage her to half health and she will come down instantly which skip some of the red orb destroyer part.

      I've been trying to defeat this on heroic and it's impossible. Been looking up guides, but all of them play on a different patch where the red projectiles don't hit the player or they use a dmg buff glitch from another boss witch is patched. It's a shame would have really wanted 100% this game but with the red dot thing patched this boss is impossible to beat, too much***** on the screen to deal with at once and not nearly enough dps to kill all the mobs before new ones spawn in let alone kill the boss while everything is happening. Have tried schyte, daggers, bow and gun all 9+ upgraded. Tips?

        This is yet another one of those wiki sites where every single article is a stub, and useless. What a shame, the lore seemed interesting.

          This boss is a giant stinky stain on this game. The normal version is not fun to fight and the heroic version is simply broken. The devs are better off scraping it from the game or remaking it from scratch because there is no fixing this. Clearly, they haven't tested this boss AT ALL.

            Absolutely impossible on heroic. Cannot be beaten. Too much crap on the screen, too much HP, too much everything.

              i have a few tips for this boss: This is a time sensitive boss as the blood below starts to rise, So DPS with DOT and CoolDowns are more than needed. You may find yourself dodging alot of projectiles this fight so a bow of fire or bleed is recommended to keep the damage going also you can shoot the boss from atop for Pre Damage before they drop down. Destroy the first crystal as the orbs that fall slowly will knock you up and away. The next crystal should be the third as that will draw you in. Again time sensitive so you want to get rid of things that are going to hinder your over movement.
