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.

      Probably my favorite fight in the game The other bosses just anoyed me, the have good design, but are boring af This battle was, for me, a real skill battle, not a "i do more damage than you" battle

        Thank you, Jaws of Death. Not sure if you are strike or slash, but you worked well. A bit of Holy butter added. I pressed Y a lot.

          It's possible to get stuck in the wall where the door exiting the room is if he grabs you very close to it. He attempts to throw you across the room, but he's already in the corner, so he throws you int he wall, getting you stuck. Only a few of his sword swings can hit you here as far as I could tell, and if you manage to kill him the door opening dislodges you.

            Can confirm, Dark Swarm spam will stunlock him to death. It won't do fantastic damage to him per cast because of his arcane resist though, so using the Crystalmoat and Burning Sky rings are crucial towards maintaining that non-stop spam.

              Who knew a god was easily crushed by a big rock on a stick, pretty much five hits with the bonecrusher and 40+ strength.

                If you jump at the wall, and then wall-jump off the wall and dart-jump back towards the wall until you run out of dart jumps, you will exit and re-enter the boss room, causing the camera to zoom in on the Nameless God and the music to restart. However, his health will not change.

                  Used Dark Coil with the wand together with lightning pod for extra stagger if needed, because dark coil did sometimes (very rarely) failed to stagger him. Took some time, but killed without getting hit once. Wondering how it'd go in NG+ lol

                    For a final boss, this was like taking candy from a baby... Ripped him apart with scarfrichter or w.e. Fantastic game and theme, just wish it was more punishing.

                      if u have light armor and no shield prepare for complete bs, he attacks super fast with high damage and his only weakness is stagger. If you have a greatsword hes a piece of cake and a stone charm greatly helps, otherwise artificial difficulty

                        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

                                    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...
