Limgrave is the first region of Elden Ring that players will get to explore. This land features rolling hills, beach access, and bosses lurking amongst the castles, ruins, and caves. Followingly, it should be no surprise that several bosses wait for you in West Limgrave, East Limgrave, and The Weeping Pennisula.
Many of these bosses are optional to fight but offer enticing and beneficial rewards, making them illicitly desirable. Some of these bosses are found in dungeons, while others are in the open-world fields. You can encounter a few of these fights in places outside of Limgrave, but they will be more challenging and offer different rewards.
