Commoner is a Humanoid Enemy in Elden Ring. The Commoner are known to be servants who are imprisoned and bound to execute domestic duties to those who within the Stormveil Castle. They wear a ragged garb and a cangue that has never been taken off, causing them to slouch. Although they appear to be slender, tall, and weak, these commoners are still able to wield a weapon and use it against intruders.


 The boards that hang from their necks depicts a sprawling tree, its roots and branches forming two holes. A self imposed shackle, that displayed their allegiance to the Erdtree.

...Only, there are no commoners remaining with their wits about them.

Commoner Notes & Tips

  • Naked Commoners in the Volcano Manor throw poison pots, fire pots, oil pots, and ruin fragments.
  • Several Commoner types carry Torchpoles and Spears, but none drop them. Both of these weapons are only dropped by the Exile Soldiers that use them.
  • A certain Commoner in the Capital Outskirts, near the craters with many giant arrows, will transform into Margit upon approach. After Margit is defeated, this Commoner will still spawn. It has an invisible sword, and drops no Runes.

      A commoner?! What filth. A creature such as that could not hope to even be noticed in my own presence. Filthy, filthy commoners, plaguing our great Lands Between. How dare they even let a single one set foot in our great, royal capital.

        Made a new character and decided I want this for the fashion souls. Didn't know a good place to farm so just ran around stormveil to maybe find a good spot, first commoner I find drops it, 9 arcane lol

          There is one commoner that gives no runes… the one in Altus that turns into Margit. After you kill Margit, it’ll keep respawning but won’t drop anything upon death.

            I want the death cultist veil so badly !! WHY fromsoft! WHY MUST YOU HURT ME LIKE THIS? the drippiest headpiece... is not available to me :(

              The naked poison pot throwing ones in Volcano Manor can be absolute bastards if you're not careful, that poison mist damage ramps up very quickly.

                I found a commoner holding a chest in his arms? Killed him, and he dropped a Golden Rune 10. Altus Plateau west of the site of grace along the cliff wall. Wasn't sure if this guy spawned every time or not but thought I'd mention it since I hadn't seen it brought up elsewhere

                  The ones with the swords can in some instances backstab the player so make sure not to face your back to them (this behavior is particularly noticeable in Leyndell and the Leyndell sewers).

                    Anyone else think they look similar to the albinaurics? They're not considering they can walk and aren't frog shaped, but just an interesting thing that they look similar

                      These should've appeared way more throughout the game, how is it that there are more nobles than commoners?

                      • Anonymous

                        I just saw a video where a guy punches one of these and then immediately sits and the commoner stops attacking him and he sits right beside him. It was the saddest thing ever.
