Elder Dragon Greyoll is a Boss in Elden Ring. This Elden Ring Elder Dragon Greyoll Guide features boss locations, tips, strategies and videos on how to defeat Greyoll easily, as well as boss stats and lore for Greyoll.

Elder Dragon Greyoll is a massive dragon, laying on the ground surrounded by five regular dragons and is found in Caelid. This dragon is said to be the mother of all dragons, and so the smaller dragons surrounding her are likely to be her offspring. When players encounter her, they will find her motionless and unable to attack.

This is an optional boss, but it is a popular one, as it can net players a large amount of Runes for the relative ease of killing her. There are two ways of defeating the boss. One is by killing all of the smaller dragons around her. Defeating each one takes off a portion of her health away from her, and defeating all five defeats this boss as well. Alternatively, you can avoid fighting all the smaller dragons and just chip away at her health by attacking her tail directly. It may take a while, but you get the same rewards no matter what method you choose to defeat her. Greyoll and her children drop five Dragon Hearts and unlock Greyoll's Roar for purchase when defeated.

Bosses are unique and challenging Enemies that can be encountered all over the Lands Between. They can drop unique Spirit AshesWeaponsSpells, and other various Items.

 

 Greyoll was the mother of all dragons, dwarfing all who stood before her like a looming mountain.

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.

Elder Dragon Greyoll Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Elder Dragon Greyoll:

  • The easiest way to kill her is by going to her left side (from a player's perspective), and hit the tail with any weapon of your choice. Neither her, nor her children will fight back.
  • Armaments that inflict Hemorrhage or/and Frostbite are incredibly useful against Greyoll, as they do a percentage of HP, and as it can proc relatively fast. It is possible to kill Greyoll from a very low level with this method.
  • Clearing the smaller dragons will also clear Greyoll, likewise clearing Greyoll will also clear the smaller dragons. 
  • Stay in behind Greyoll, near the wings and the legs to avoid aggroing any dragons or falling victim to nasty attacks. She can be easily cheesed with this method.
  • When you first ascend using the Spirit Spring (the air gusts Torrent can jump on) directly north of Church of the Plague, run directly towards Greyroll's head and summon any spirit ash (preferably a tanky one) to draw the attention of the smaller dragons. She will alert the nearby dragons who will walk towards her head. After, try to ignore as many as you can and head straight towards the right side of her tail (if looking directly at Greyroll from the front, otherwise it would be the left side of her tail if looking at her from the back), at which point you should be able to freely attack Greyroll without drawing the attention of the smaller dragons. They may investigate if they were still aggro'd on you from before, but like unlike regular dragons these do not fly around so they are easy to lose aggro on. From this spot you should be able to attack her without any interference, since she relies completely on the smaller dragons for defense and does not attack the player.
Melee Users

Add Bloody Slash ash of war to simple longsword, the hemmorage will help kill it faster. Any other Bleed attacks will speed up the attack process. Kill the small dragons in the area that appear when it roars and it will also deplete its health. Clearing them will fnish off Greyoll without actually having to face her. Likewise, clearing Greyoll herself will clear all the smaller dragons, and this is quicker. These smaller dragons move very slowly and are easy to run underneath most of the time to throw in some hits without taking damage. If you prefer, go ahead and approach Greyoll herself and throw in as many hits as you can until her HP bar depletes.

 

Magic and Ranged Users

You don't need a fancy weapon. Simply add the Bloody Slash ash of war to a basic dagger and it will do just fine. As a ranged player, this will be a easy encounter due to their slow movement. They don't run at you and your main concern may be its lunge attacks that is still very slow and easy to predict. The time before its lunge attack while in the air is also a great opportunity to deal any ranged attacks. Continue this until all dragons are cleared then Greyoll will turn to ash. 

Alternatively, if the player has no such weapon, instead of getting it he may try to kill lesser dragons with Rock Sling (while using Meteorite Staff). Headshots with rocks can deal quite a damage and poise-break them.

Any Faith build can use Ancient Dragons' Lightning Strike to cause large amounts of damage to Dragon enemies. With 70 Faith, one or two casts can kill multiple of her Dragon offspring simultaneously.

Elder Dragon Greyoll Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Greyoll's Roar This is Greyoll's only tactic, which will debilitate your stats and awaken the smaller dragons around her. You will be facing the smaller dragons instead. Killing one will deplete her health significantly. Clear the smaller dragons. Their Attacks will be found below. 
Smaller Dragon
Stomp The dragon lifts one foot and stomps down, creating a shockwave. You can watch as the dragon lifts its foot in preparation for this attack.
Wing Attack The dragon lifts one of its wings and smashes it into the ground in front of it. When it lifts a single wing, stay clear of that side.
Lunge Done after flying. The dragon flies into the air and lunges down during their landing.   Remain out of any area it will potentially land on. You'll notice it flying and begin to target you. This is when you should back away.
Tail Lash The dragon repositions to face you, whipping its tail around in an arc. This attack is triggered by behing behind it. When you see the tail lift and curl to one side, step away. 
Bite The dragon leans its head to one side, screeching, before snapping quickly in an arc in front of it. This attack is triggered by behing in front of it. When you see its head wind up for a bite, step away or under the dragon.
Charge After a scream, the dragon takes a few steps forward and does a headbut. After it screams, either dodge closer between its legs or stay away. The dragon can move quite a bit forward, so be warry of midrange.

Elder Dragon Greyoll Lore, Notes & Other Trivia

  • Greyoll can perform the same animations as the smaller dragons around her, but due to her immense size, it will often cause the game to crash.
  • When measured from head to tail, Greyoll is currently the second largest dragon in FromSoftware history, beating out the Dragon God from Demon’s Souls and the Divine Dragon from Sekiro. The Great Ancient Dragon Gransax, who's corpse lays in the Royal Capital, is the largest dragon, dwarfing even Greyoll.
    • Attempt to make this dragon act as a regular one can be achieved, but soon after game crashes due to inability of Elden Ring's game engine to handle the dragon size.
  • After killing Greyoll, player will additioanlly receive around ~20,000 Extra, as the smaller Dragons surrounding Greyoll will die along with it.

      you can endlessly farm her for ~50.000 Runes (in Basegame) if you, as soon as you see her twitching run to the Site of Grace and sit down. if you are speced for Faith the fastest way to kill her that i´ve found is use Scarlet Aeonia on her so that she is rotten and then spam Maliketh´s Black Blade Weapon Skill (meaning yes this is a late game/NG+ strategy) Maliketh´s Black Blade Weapon skill does roughly 8% of her Max HP per use, meaning to it 12 times (480 FP in total or 312 if you use Ash of War-Scarab and Carian Filigreed Crest)

      • > Kill a helpless old lady in front of her children or kill all her children as she watches to destroy her

        That's sick and twisted, what kind of scumbag lowlife would-

        > 50,000 runes

        ....*chomps gold fowl foot* I mean uh, clearly this dragon must die for the good of all. Yes.

          This boss was a free reward. On the first attempt, I simply went behind her tail and alternated between Rotten Breath & Dragonice. Used the same tactic,
          when I fought Greyll.

            After 1.06 either Fort Faroth Site of Grace bugged out for me [was unable to use it until Elder Dragon Greyoll death animation finished] or they fixed it meaning - no more rune farming. Could someone else check this out and confirm?

              i rode Torrent behind her butt and hit her with bloodhound's fang until she died. all little dragons died afterwards. they couldn't attack me because of the chest-high flaming wall, and just let me whack their mom for a solid 4-5 mins

                    • I don't know why, but in the NG+ it dropped 156,000 even using Golden Scarab + Golden Pickled Fowl. The base drop, with the 5 minor dragons, would be 134,700, with just the scarab it would be 161,640, with the Gold Pickled 175,110, and with both 210,132. I've miscalculated something? Because I even have it clipped, because I wanted to bring more data about rune drops for the page (unti noticed that this is the first go to ATM on the Lands Between).

                            I was "rewarded" for not cheesing this fight last night. I was killed by the last small dragon, but the Greyoll died in the same time. I was not awarded 50k runes, nor 5 dragon hearts or dragon incantation, but the boss disappeared. GG. :D

                              u can farm greyoll, u have to kill him then run back to the nearby site of grace just before he fades away and gives u runes , i suggest killing him while on torrent.

                                Because I'm a lazy POS, I'll ask here... Was the Greyoll glitch removed with any patches? Funny... That's EXACTLY what Patches would do, just to make your life harder.

                                  I belive the fastest way to kill Greyoll is by using the ashe of war Black flame tornado, I was testing some builds and procing bloodloss or frostbite could not keep up against how much damage black flame did, and how fast it is. It is actually a little too affective so if you want to farm her use it with care. One full charge of the ash of war was enough to deal 20K damage while under the buffs of (flaming-shrouding cracked tear and flame grant me strength). Bloodloss is like 13k and you can't buff it.

                                    For rune grinding fest I recommend not to kill Greyoll, just kill under 5 smaller half HP dragons and just keep on constantly resetting at the Grace, because it's easy to kill half HP dragons and getting quite lots of runes. I had this for a while, thankfully I kind of died when trying to kill 3rd dragon, so I just went, took back my lost runes, and kept on killing and piling up runes, and while trying I do get killed, so runes just keep on piling up until I killed all of the half HP dragons around, at least those were all I saw, and hit the big one out of curiosity, and it died from one hit...and all the farmland was gone.

                                    So heads up for anyone who happens to stumble here before, or just arriving at the location, and reading this.

                                        Unintentially killed her thinking I had two more dragons. Had no intent on killing her as I was going to use her dragons to farm runes. Which I did. It was good while it lasted. There are other places to farm dragons.

I don’t know if there actually is or not, but there was a section at the bottom of the page explaining runes saying that supposedly this dragon, or one nearby, can give you a quest, and that you should hold off on killing it.

                                                                      • Anonymous

Dont try to cry to Fromsoft just because you want to force everyone to play this game your way. It's not disappointing, it's a way to get runes. Nothing more.

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

Unlike Radahn, she doesn’t have a glorious battle at the end of her life. The runes don’t matter, it’s just 6-7 birds. Why does this have to be a trophy??? I’ll not do this again for NG+.

                                                                            • Anonymous

The dragon incantation is the only one I needed for the trophy. Over 87.5k HP and it took about 9 Destined Deaths to put this one down. Destined Death is gonna be crazy in NG+!

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                    Ok... so this was the last big enemy in Caelid that was still left for me. I was clueless about her behaviour... I just saw her, heard her mighty roar and I imagined it would be the hardest fight in the area, an epic fight against a huge elder dragon, saving it for last.

                                                                                    Teleported to the Fort, started to attack her at her tail. Hoping to get her health down a bit, before her underlings would attack me.
                                                                                    So I hacked at her tail as she roared and cried, unable to defend herself. None of her dragons came. I killed her... and I'm riding away with all my blood money and my new dragon power. Somehow this isn't how an elder dragon should go down... No epic battle, not even a fight...
                                                                                    I mean, she was suffering from the rot, so maybe it really was putting her out of her misery.

                                                                                    I still feel dirty now...

                                                                                    And as I'm riding through the lands between, looking at some weaponless zombie-aristocrats cowering in fear as I come close, remembering the whimpering albinaurics, and how many of these I've slain, I've come to question myself:

                                                                                    "Are we the baddies?" XD

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      • Anonymous

Takes 5ish minutes just smacking her. Easy and fast way to get to level 30ish on a new character

                                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                                            • Anonymous

Dunno how the hell you get near her to talk(cuz all them angy babies), but when I saw the game talking about "dragon communion" and then saw this big girl I thought I might get to talk to certain dragons...ya know commune with them. Shame this doesn't seem to be the case, i bet it was cut content for real.

                                                                                                  3. Get Poison Mist

                                                                                                  5.Go to the Church of Dragon Communion and buy the Rotten Breath

                                                                                                  1 Rotten Breath on her then press the Ash of War with the Flail and walk into her. After the Scarlet Rot has run out you apply it again and wait at the bonfire for her to die. Sit. Stand up. Repeat.

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

Break level 50 in less than 10 mins lol

                                                                                                              For a early game level boost you can just grab the teleporter behind the third church of marika & make your way towards Fort Faroth site of grace. From there just head to the dragons tail and keep swinging until it dies. This will net you 77.115 runes which should be quite a few levels depending on how early you do this. Bonus points if you pick up a gold-pickled fowl foot on the way (One is north of where sorceress sellen is, on the ground next to a cross) & use a multiplayer group in which someone kills a shardbearer right before you kill the dragon. Keep swinging until Greyoll is about 20% hp, wait until you get the popup "somebody defeated a sharbearer", use the fowl and get a quick 101.000 runes.

                                                                                                              This can be done before Margit btw if you are struggling!

Once you ''kill'' her, make a run for the grace and rest. You will notice that you got 50k runes but the dragon is still there. Sadly you can't get dragon hearts this way but it is still a good strat for early game rune farming.
