Elana, the Squalid Queen is a boss in Dark Souls II: Crown of the Sunken King.

LocationEdit

At the bottom floor of Dragon's Sanctum.

SummoningEdit

Steelheart Ellie and Benhart of Jugo can be summoned for this battle. Ellie's summon sign is just before the fog gate, but Benhart's is further back, behind some large pillars.

LoreEdit

Elana, the Squalid Queen, like Nashandra, was a fragment of Manus, Father of the Abyss, supposedly a fragment representing the trait of wrath. Regaining her form, she became Elana, and later wife of the Sunken King. It is unknown if she designed to betray the Sunken King or if she truly loved him, but one day Sir Yorgh and his Drakeblood Knights besieged Shulva, defeating the Sunken King and awakening Sinh, the Slumbering Dragon, who then let forth a toxic cloud which annihilated the whole city.

Somehow, Elana survived the siege, and became furious and vengeful for her city's destruction and possibly her husband's death. She took on her true form and now accompanies Sinh, accruing souls for the day of her vengeance.

AppearanceEdit

Being they share similar origins, both Elana and Nashandra have very similar physical traits, appearing as tall female humanoids wearing a sort of long skirt made with dead organic material, Nashandra wearing a mass of human carcasses (similar to Gravelord Nito), and Elana wearing a mass of red-colored dead branches that give the impression of being made of shreds of living flesh. Their overall designs differ most in that while Nashandra looks more like a skeleton, Elana looks more like a fresh corpse.

They both wield similar looking weapons, Nashandra holding a long scythe and Elana a halberd, and they both swing them in very similar ways, displaying almost the same movesets while attacking.

StrategyEdit

  • Elana will cast Affinity, Chaos Storm, Dark Hail, Dark Orb, Darkstorm, and Flame Swathe.
  • When close, she will attack the player with the Wrathful Axe.
  • During the fight, Elana will attempt to summon additional enemies to aid her. These include a golden version of Velstadt, The Royal Aegis, a group of golden skeletons (three if alone, plus one for each phantom), or a group of Enslaved Pigs (although this is very rare).
  • When the player is at a distance, she will cast Flame Swathe. It can either appear as a single orb or two; when there are two, they will appear on either side of the player. Rolling forward is the best way to avoid this.
  • It is best to have another player or NPC summoned during this fight to distract the enemies she summons.
  • Summoned Velstadt has less health than his boss version. However, his attacks still deal very high damage and the distraction he poses can prove to be fatal.
  • Special care must be taken as the real danger posed in this fight is Elana's tendency of being opportunistic, often teleporting behind the player and performing a devastating attack, or casting hexes and pyromancies constantly while the player is occupied dealing with other enemies.
  • While she's summoning enemies, she'll leave herself open for attack for about ten seconds (although, with increased defense).
  • Alluring Skulls can aid in distracting summoned skeletons for a moment.
  • If playing solo, it's recommended to deal with any summoned enemies as soon as they materialize, and finish them off as fast as possible.

TriviaEdit

  • Her greeting dialogue doesn't seem to be directed at the player, but at her fallen city, saying that it was not "deserving of the mire" and "forever [it] shall rot".
