The Nameless God is the endgame Boss in Salt and Sanctuary

The Lord of this island. Possesses incredible power over time and space, but is mortal, fallible, and forever cursed by insatiable greed. The candelabra he bears may indicate the thing he covets most: a candlelit spirit, unattainable to saltborn."

Combat Information

  • Attack Types: Physical charges, knockback, arcane
  • Weak vs: Strike Damage
  • Strong vs: Elements
  • Has surprisingly low poise and can be interrupted but attacks relentlessly.
  • You are forced into taking fall damage at the start (making it look like you kneel before The Nameless God), use a few red shards or a healing item to regain this after the fall.


  • Sword slashes - Does up to four slashes, depending on if you stay in range.  Can change direction to follow you.  Slight pauses before third and fourth swings which can trick you into thinking he's done.  Fourth slash is a leaping attack you can run under. 
  • Kick - Kicks, walks forward a few steps, then follows up with up to four sword slashes if player is still in range
  • Sword dash - Charges straight across the screen and swings his sword.  Pauses for a moment after missing, allowing you a window to attack.  
  • Grab dash - Charges across the screen.  If he connects he'll grab and headbutt you.  Cannot be blocked. Pauses for a moment after missing, allowing you a window to attack.  
  • Teleport sword throw - Throws sword into the air, which then teleports over your location and slams into the ground creating small shockwaves.  Sword then teleports back into the Nameless God's hand and he strikes the ground in front of him.  Attempt to roll behind him once he's thrown his sword, as you'll have an opportunity to get several hits in. 
  • Energy bolts - Screams and raises into the air surrounded by white energy, then rapidly fires a succession of projectiles that aim at your location.  You'll die quickly if you get caught in the barrage.  The shots can be blocked by a shield that has good Arcane defense (e.g. Silver Shield, Palatine Kite Shield, Ashen Effigy, etc), however if you don't have enough Stamina/Stagger Reduction to absorb them all you will still take damage.  To dodge the shots get close to the Nameless God while he is charging up the attack, then walk away from him once they begin to fire.  They'll all hit the floor where you were a moment ago.  Another method for avoiding them is shadowflipping off either wall as the bolts fire, dart-jumping back into the wall, shadowflipping again,and finally dart-jumping AGAIN, this time towards the boss. Most, if not all, of the bolts will hit the wall.

      So this dude pretty much wanted everything from kingdoms, societies and even immortality for himself?

      The Nameless King is Stingy from LazyTown confirmed?

        For mages players , all u need to do is jump and spam ur spells to lock animation (air dash if necessary for keeping distance and escape)..i find this boss along with the tree of men the easiest.

          For people on NG+, this might be quite the challenge to beat. Half a salvo of energy orbs is enough to kill anyone, no matter the armor/resistances. So in fact, on NG+, this boss is a dps race: you have to kill him before he throws an unavoidable energy bolt attack, or before you mess up trying to dodge one.

          The key to this fight as a melee character is to dodge WHILE maximizing your dps output. Dodging forever won't save you, because it (most probably) won't be forever. Learn the boss patterns, bait him into a charge, then 2-3 hit combo him into a STAGGER. The stagger is the KEY to maximize the dps.

          Try to find your sweet spot, but as a 2h scythe/spear/polearm user, my supersafe 3 hit combo into stagger was normal-uppercut-normal attack pattern. 90% of the time the boss will stagger in 2 hits, 10% with the last normal attack. DO NOT USE A PLUNGING ATTACK as 3d hit; the boss will bash your face if you do (animation frames are A LOT more than a normal attack and you won't be able to dodge the incoming kick to your face).

            I was a 2 hander. Basically put on all your + damage gear and when you attack, just JUMP. When he kicks or charges, just jump. no dodging or blocking needed.

            ITs laughably easy if you just remember to JUMP to doge or attack.

              I also beat him 1st try. But the story is a whole 'nother in NG+ with my Tachi build. Can't get him below 50% xD

                - Tachi
                - Roll dodging for days
                - Suspensful dramatic music
                - Wall jumping dodges

                This fight is anime as *****.

                  For mages with no dark magic, try static geist. This lovely lil' thunder fairy will stagger him in a few zaps, giving you enough time to burn his ass with dragonfire. I found this after dying to him like 15 times...

                    NG+ , I literally shoot him to death with my Mosaic Pistol (from Coveted Boss) + 7 and full poison ammo. I dodged his attack, shoot 3 times (confirm stagger) and repeat. Overall this final boss is not hard. Witch of the Lake in NG+ is much more difficult than him.

                      A 2h Tachi with stone charm will stagger in 3 hits and hit fast enough to chain staggers. Can easily do massive chunks of health by waiting for an opening, then chain staggering untill you are almost out of stamina and backing oiut to recuperate.

                        first try this guy was wreking me, made me eat 8 out of my 9 food, i hit him 2 times in that whole eat. then deicded id try the wall jumping/ dash then dropping attack on him. he dosnt have any reaction to it. just baited him towards a wall, he atks and misses cuz im 15 feet in the air and drop attack. killed him with 0 food left and did 7/8ths of his hp of damage with only 1 food left. idk i feel bad for kinda cheezing it but my "covetated" greataxe was just too *****ing slow to hit him, or keep him stunlocked.

                            For some reason none of the endgame bosses gave me any trouble, including this guy.

                                  No joke, I literally stun-locked him with Trinity Sceptre, and I was dealing, like, 1/8 of his health with every hit.

                                    if you are a warrior with 2 handed weapon remember this, this boss has a really bad poise and you can easily stun lock him with the stagger charm and a strong weapon, keep dodging until your stamina is full again, then go back on him

                                        Fall damage before boss fight16 Jun 2016 14:10  

                                        most people reading this probably knew already, but i only just realised it & figured I put it here for anyone who may not have thought of it yet.<br/><br/>when entering the Nameless God's arena, use a healing item immediately before making the drop - the heals are over time, so you'll fall, take the damage & have it back in a second. This way you wont need to spend a second or two healing up (and being vulnerable) inside the arena during the fight.<br/>

                                          Bug if you clinb the wall too high31 May 2016 05:15  

                                          If you climb either wall of the arena high enough (by doing wall jumps and air dashes), you get out of the boss zone long enough so that wen you fall back, it replays the opening sequence and restart the music. Useless, but funny.

                                            Killed this boss but it took 30k of my souls with him lel10 Apr 2016 03:47  

                                            Ahh youth, i said uhuh i don't need those 30k i just wanna finish the game and then farm at NG+. So i died to him, of course, because i didn't know his patterns. What really took my 30k was my over eagerness to immediately jump towards the boss. Which resulted in my salt being lost because i fell too hard. The area in itself is confusing me, it's upside down, and i keep thinking i need to go reverse logic it messes with my brain. The Area is the hardest for me, the boss was cake walk compared to me dying so many times because i wanted to kill the boss faster. I'm a heavy mage, heavy armored, rolls like a demon's souls toon, but i did it. I killed him with a staff rather than my sword. I had to practice first with light armor to know his patterns, but inevitably i mastered him that even with heavy i can roll away without ring assistance/
