Elden Ring Celebrant Combat Information


The absorption numbers are the % of your damage that gets blocked. For example, if an absorption is 60, 40% of that damage by that type will go through and 60% is absorbed. Bigger number = less damage. An absorption of 100 means no damage goes through, and a resistance of -100 mean the enemy takes 2x damage from that source. 0 means damage goes pretty much as is.


The resistance numbers are the buildup amount to trigger it. For example, if a resistance is 100 you must deal 100 points of whatever aux buildup to trigger it. Note that these go down over time, and increase each time the effect procs.

Celebrant Notes & Tips

  • Voice Actor: Mali Harries
  • They can projectile vomit blood at the player, which oddly inflicts Poison Status Effect build-up.
  • They do not drop the Celebrant's Skull.
  • A spirit in the area can been found saying:
    "Eek.. I hear a festive melody..
    No, no don't skin me.. 
    My hide is filthy, I swear..."
    Implying some aspects of the festival.

      Farming for the blue hood...

      I got multiples of every drop, including 3 rakes, before I got one blue hood. I'm going to have nightmares tonight.

      • Anonymous

        These ladies deserve to have a spirit ash. Make them dance around when you summon them and only start attacking when something enters their aggro range.

        • Anonymous

          fun fact: the celebrants are almost certainly based off of the maenads of ancient greek myth. followers of the god bacchus (they are also call bacchants), they would often dance in a frenzied intoxicated state and practice strange rites, particularly tearing apart live animals and eating them raw.

            Okay, I spent over 100 runs trying to farm this and the other 2 rare drops, each with max discovery (99 ARC, Talisman, Crowfoot) and got only one Sickle and 1 Cleaver. I went to sleep and started again next day and got 2 Sickles, 1 Cleaver, and 2 Ribrakes in only 5 Runs (same Setup).
            Incidentially, it was nighttime while I got those drops, so there may be some truth to the theory they only drop at night. Maybe they drop more at night at least

              today i spent a very, very long time slaughtering them over and over to get their equipment, and then found out it's international women's day

              • grinding for all 3 weapons guide
                ps: only do this in new game + and beyond
                what you will need: ~20 silver foul foot, silver scarab, 99 arcane or 91 and the tear mask, sacred relic sword, and gold scarab if you want i got 1.4mil after i finished so its up to you
                literally just run between the group of like 15 celebrants and the windmill village site of grace kill all of the celebrants in that group with the ash of war of the sacred relic sword then rest at the site of grace to respawn them and maintain your silver foul foot effect (do not fast travel to the grace it will deactivate the foul foot effect).
                the reasoning to only go after the large group is because its the only spawn for the blue celebrants which have the sickle and it also has the cleaver and rib rake, due to the small amount of blue celebrants even though you are passing up on different groups by the time you finally get a sickle you are bound to get a rib rake and cleaver.
                hope this helps its still gonna take like 1-2 hours due to the horribly low drop rates but this should make it faster

                  After this farm I decided to give up on arcane and play a mage, I still hear the laughs

                    they are all female, most of them wear shady cloaks, the wailing spirit at their village talks about their "skinning" habits, and the most obvious: they seem to be constantly celebrating something, like a huge, historical accomplishment from the past, and for all that, in my headcanon, these creepheads are actually retired Black Knife Assassin Veterans from the very Night of the Black Knives incident, for me, that's the only lore-wise thing that explains it all, from their unigender, to their shady cloaks to their even shadier murdering habits disguised behind their ceaseless celebration and festivity that spans in and around their village, as they still wear cleaves, ribrakes and maces crafted with skulls.

                    • For farming, just dump into arcane and spam Mohgwyn's Sacred Spear weapon art in the middle of every group while working your way up and down the hill bouncing between the graces. Once you start narrowing down what you need from their drop pool you can obviously single out the ones you need.

                      • I noticed that they don't actually vomit on you; they bite their arm and spit out their blood on you. So uh... you know.

                        Also idk if the drop rates have changed or im just lucky but after like 30-45 minutes of just farming the big group in the front I've got 2 cleavers, 2 sickles, several dresses (plus 2 altered and 1 blue), a festive hood and a blue festive hood. I'm not not really interested in farming the rake, but I imagine it helps to figure out which villager is wielding what weapon and going for those women specifically, since they only drop what they carry.

                          I think I've beaten a couple people here.
                          With 90 arcane combined between levels, the Silver Tear Mask, and Marika's Soreseal plus the Silver Scarab and the occasional Silver-Pickled Foul Foot I farmed:
                          11 celebrant cleavers
                          5 celebrant rib-rakes
                          13 festival hoods
                          12 blue festival hoods
                          23 festival garbs
                          34 altered festival garbs
                          12 blue festival garbs
                          of course hundreds of golden runes 1 and 3 and human bone shards\

                          All this to finally get ONE I repeat ONE Celebrant's Sickle.

                          In short, I've heard enough laughing to take over the role as Joker.

                            I've been hanging out in the village slaughtering these dancing ladies with Haorah's Quake while waiting to get summoned for co-op. I've been farming for at least 8-10 hours... many garbs, a few hoods, 3 cleavers. No sickles and rakes yet!

                              Having tired at the endless butchery of weird tadpole people, I have diverted my efforts to slaughtering these freaky midsomer types en masse.

                              • I straight up refuse to farm these terrifying granny corpse dancers at night and will literally change time of day to morning if needed.

                                  30 runs through the windmill village at 190 discovery earned me:

                                  3 festive hoods, 3 blue festive hoods
                                  14 festive garb
                                  1 blue festive garb

                                  1 celebrants rib rake.
                                  zero cleavers and zero sickles. Wish the weapon drop rates were higher.

                                  • I love how all 4 of these ladies each have completely different drop unique to them making it almost guaranteed your not going to get what you want without a load of farming. It's kinda sadistic.

                                      Just for fun i got rid of my runes and items related to the celebrants and decided to farm them at Windmill Village till i got a sickle.

                                      At 250 discovery after an hour and 47 minutes i had
                                      -1106877 Runes

                                      -1 Celebrant’s Sickle

                                      And surprisingly not a single Celebrant’s Rib-Rake…

                                      Making the Sickle and the Rib-Rake easily the hardest to farm items i have encountered so far in the game. Black Dumpling and dual magma blades were a cake walk compared to what it takes to get dual finance sickles.

                                      • Today I learned that these ladies have an attack that seems kind of rare. They bite their arm a few times (very quickly) and then spit/spray their blood at you with their mouth. The initial hit from their blood can actually "proc" at least three times and then it also inflicts poison build up. It happened to Marz in part 12 of her blind Elden Ring playthrough, at 1:19:39. I'll post a link to that video with that timestamp included (so it should take you to that exact moment) in a reply because sometimes I think comments with links get deleted.

                                          The Celebrants reminded me hard of the Resident Evil 4 villagers right at the start. Might look normal from afar, but don't get too close... ¡Un forastero!
