Elden Ring features a massive open world with a plethora of boss encounters scattered throughout the Lands Between. Some bosses are mandatory encounters that you must defeat to proceed further in the story; however, most are optional.
Perhaps the most compelling reason to take on optional bosses is that they offer some of the best loot in the game. In particular, the Demi-Human Queen Maggie rewards players with the Memory Stone and 13,000 runes.
This guide will explain how to beat the Demi-Human Queen Maggie boss easily and where to find her in Elden Ring.
Where to find Demi-Human Queen Maggie in Elden Ring
Firstly, the Demi-Human Queen Maggie boss can be found in Hermit's Village in Mt. Gelmir, located north of Craftman's Shack, not far from the Volcano Manor.
To reach the village, you will need to traverse around the volcano, starting from the north-facing side to the volcano's western edge. You will pass Hermit's Shack and Craftsman's Shack as you travel. You should find Demi-Human Queen Maggie northeast of the village (Thanks, Fextralife).
How to beat Demi-Human Queen Maggie in Elden Ring
The battle with Demi-Human Queen Maggie isn't that difficult to overcome, although the numerous sorcerers and other enemies swarming the arena make it downright tricky, not to mention frustrating.
However, there's a way to overcome this and make this battle incredibly easy. It would be best to first take the right path from the Stake of Marika to the boss arena.

Don't barge in from the village entrance once you awaken at the Stake of Marika. Instead, use the opening on the right as shown in the picture above and keep heading straight. Squeeze in-between the shacks and the tree and make your way to the boss arena.
Doing so won't alert the numerous enemies scattered around the Craftman's Shack and will prevent them from following you into the battlefield.
Once you enter the boss arena, we recommend using one of your Spirit Ashes as a distraction, which is essential in this battle. After summoning your favourite Spirit Ashes, let it take care of the boss while you take out all the sorcerers in the area.
There are a total of 4 sorcerers positioned at every corner of the arena. If you leave them alone, they will take you out immediately with their magic attacks. So, we recommend taking them out as soon as possible, one by one on horseback while your Spirit Ashes chip away at the boss' health.
The fight becomes a lot simpler when it's only you, your Spirit Ashes, and Demi-Human Queen Maggie on the battlefield. Unfortunately, the latter is weak to magic attacks, so we recommend either using the Sword of Night and Flame or the Rock Sling spell, which would take her out in just a couple of hits.
As for her attacks, you only have to be mindful of her Crystal Barrage spell, which fires a volley of Glintstone crystal shards. Note that getting caught in it will kill you instantly. Thankfully, its range isn't long, so you can quickly get out of its way.
Following these steps should make fighting Demi-Human Queen Maggie a lot easier. Taking her down will reward you with a Memory Stone and 13,000 runes.
