Envoy's Greathorn is a Colossal Weapon in Elden Ring. The Envoy's Greathorn scales primarily with Strength and is a good Weapon for dealing Holy damage. 

 

Fanned golden horn of the Oracle Envoys. Profoundly weighty, its blows are sure to be felt.

Originally an instrument, but one that cannot be sounded by a mere human. Or perhaps it is too early to sound the call.

 

Where to Find Envoy's Greathorn in Elden Ring

The Envoy's Greathorn weapon can be found at the following location:

  • Dropped by Giant Oracle Envoy. They are found in Miquella's Haligtree
  • Beginning at Haligtree Canopy Site of Grace, head up the branch in front of you and take a left towards the three Oracle Envoys. Immediately after passing the second Oracle Envoy, turn right and jump off the mushroom that leads to another branch containing a large Oracle Envoy. Run past this enemy until you reach a cluster of mushrooms. Jump from here, down to the large branch containing the patrolling giant ants. Sneak past or fight your way through them (if you reset the area and immediately head along through this route, once you jump down onto the large branch, you should only have to deal with one Giant Ant) and head up the branch. This will take you directly to a lone Giant Oracle Envoy.
  • Alternative route can be taken from Haligtree Town Site of Grace: go back and up the ladder, run up the wide branch, jump down from the third cluster of mushrooms onto the narrow branch to the left and then go left again to the first Envoy. Three timed rolls are needed for this part. Flask of Wondrous Physick with Opaline Hardtear and Opaline Bubbletear combined with Lord's Divine Fortification are a tremendous help. Up the branch with first Giant Oracle Envoy is the second one grouped with a Large Oracle Envoy and two Oracle Envoy's.
    • Alternative option: From the Haligtree Town Site of Grace, go back and up the ladder, run onto the wide branch and stop before the first two Scarlet Rot Miranda Sprouts (killing them helps). There should be a part of the branch that sticks up slightly right where the first sprout was, with a disc shape facing away from the Giant Oracle Envoy above. Walking into it or casting spells should not move your character from here, so casting spells with an arc and an explosion such as Cannon of Haima while aiming straight up will kill the first Envoy and prevent the stress of making it onto the same branch. Then it is trivial to kill the second Giant Oracle Envoy and its accompanying Large Oracle Envoy.

      I was able to get the Envoy's Greathorn in 6 attempts. I highly recommend using the Silver Scarab (talisman) to boost your discovery. I had discovery of 208 with the talisman equipped.

      • Anonymous

        Two colossal envoys above Haligtree Town site of grace each dropped one greathorn on the 5th try after I maxed out item discovery, and the funny thing is, I only wanted to get one. Are there other guys who never had trouble farming these rare weapons (though I had pretty painful time getting cleanrot spear)?

        Speaking about profit of the weapon, the poise damage on its AoW is criminally low.

          Does ~340 dmg r1 in pvp on 28 str, 50 fth… which is less damage than a sacred infused mace r1. The L2 hits for about 8-900dmg in pvp, which beats sacred blade by only 2-300… NOT worth the farm. Sacred mace beats this for 12str and then sacred great mace does double the r1 damage for 28str. Just saying…

            For some reason I never had problem with farming this, I just got one on NG+5 first try. Know this info will not help you to get your own greathorn, but this is insane to me. Feels like actual drop rate is 20% instead of 2%

              Honestly, a fun and over-hated weapon. Sure, it's not the Envoy Longhorn, but the bubble hits really hard (around double the damage of the Envoy Horn, averaging maybe a couple hundred below the longhorn), and it has an alright sized AoE on the bubble burst. Can be really good against stronger, but not huge enemies. It is a shame that it has less Faith scaling than both of the other horns though. Definitely could use a tiny buff though. A shame it got hit with all the other Colossal weapons, especially since it's probably once of the shortest colossal weapons.

              For huge enemies, the Longhorn's definitely the way to go. but for smaller but still beefier enemies, Greathorn all the way.

                You would think that "da big one" would at least have one or two better stats than the Envoy's Long Horn considering it's the next weapon up in a triad. Maybe a C in Faith but an A in Strength, or a C in Strength but an A in Faith.
                As it stands not only is this nightmarish to farm, but it's inferior to the Envoy's Long Horn in every way, including range and dmg. Even the spell version of Great Oracular Bubble does more damage since it got buffed!

                Funny to hit someone with though.

                  I just platinumed the game yesterday. Also completed my first ever NG+. This godamn thing is my next challenge. Probably get it around the time the dlc comes out.

                    everyone saying they took hours to farm this when i fell so fkn much off the haligree roots that i organically got it because i had to run past that one guy every time i died

                    • Anonymous

                      I've been farming it for the last day. I finally get it to drop but I killed the envoy mid-jump attack so the drop was in the air and I couldn't get it. I am now genuinely angry and the game owes me this stupid horn!

                      • After farming for 2 hours (~250 discovery) I decided that the Long Horn is better anyway and skipped this ugly abomination.
                        Both paths described above have their (dis)advantages, but with Assassin's Gambit the Haligtree Town one is faster and more secure (if you don't aggro the buried Rotten Miranda Sprouts along the way, or they will alert the Giant Oracle Envoy). On the other hand, the other path has another Long Horn Envoy, if you are farming both weapons (like I did until the Long Horn dropped). Assassin's Gambit also comes in handy for the Canopy path, so the ants and small envoys above them won't aggro.

                        I tried to get all weapons in my first playthrough, but this Greathorn is the only (farmable) one I skipped in the end. Can't be bothered. 2 Magma Blades already cost 6 hours of my life. Not again :D

                          Well after 2 hours of farming I just got 2 in a row. Got like 166 discovery with consumable item. My question is why it’s just a one bubble? I thought I’m gonna shot a little more of them

                          • Anonymous

                            Actually an easy farm, the mob has a high droprate, just kill the one just above the Haligtree Town site of grace with ranged attacks, put your Haligdrake Talisman +2 and Lord's Divine Fortification on and he won't be doing much damage to you with his bubbles. I got 2 of these within 8 kills. The scarlet rot flowers under his spawn location are a bigger pain than he is, honestly.

                            • This weapon is a huge disappointment and inferior to the Envoy's Long Horn in all possible ways:
                              - It weight twice more
                              - Consume 25% more Stamina and 50% more FP
                              - Is slower and have less reach
                              - Has a lower aoe
                              - Has the same amount of damage with regular / heavy attack (2 pts difference)
                              - The skill does 50% to 75% less damage
                              - Has a drop rate of 2% (vs 4% for long horn)

                              This weapon is in dire need for a buff.
                              Note: Poise damage was decreased in patch 1.08, rendering the weapon even more useless than it previously was

                                Takes an assload of stats, has meh scaling until endgame, has slow ash of war with little hyperarmor, is short af compared to other colossals, and has the stock cruddy moveset of all colossals. yup, this is one of the elden ring weapons of all time

                                  Pulley crossbow it's head from a safe distance on the branch below it near the Haligtree Town grace. Other ranged attacks may work.

                                    I never have this issue but I swear I can't get this thing to drop. Drop rate is way too low honestly, should've been a guaranteed drop if you kill all three in any order

                                      This weapon is just not worth it, but this is the pain you gotta go through if you want to have every single weapon in the game

                                        Figured it wasn't an item we could get until I accidentally got it on my second playthrough (as an arcane build). I feel a bit guilty seeing this comment section :/

                                          Still working on this one on my collector character. I wasn't made about it until my SL1 (full clear) character killed a couple to get to the Oracle Ashes and got this thing for the 1 dude I killed. My SL1 character also got Warhawk blade on the first bird he ever killed and Iron Sword from Lion Misbigotten. Always get the drops on the character that doesn't need them the most.

                                              Got it at a super low lvl with zero weapon upgrades by using assassins approach AoW and going behind the large oracle envoy and onto the edge of the branch behind him, then I used a pulley crossbow with bleed and cold to shoot the great envoy from far away and the bubbles would hit the branches in between us so I couldn't even get hit. You dont even need the arrow reach talisman, and the ants basically cant see you with assassins approach on so you just need to run down and see if you got it then die and try again

                                                  After thinking & searching how i would continue with my madness build in NG & going for that ending; i found a head item & this weapon in my inventory... removed the black dumpling , put on some robes.

                                                  In another way as whining about the droprate, i decided to post;

                                                  The AoW of this weapon is not buffed by the 'Roar Medalion' , eventho i fantasy that the bubble uses the breath of the character i'm controlling.

                                                  and... 'Roar Medalion' doesn't buff Howl of Shabriri .

                                                  Aber... erhm maar... erhm but... ; mais 'Howl of Shabriri' does boost the bubbles from this art of war.


                                                  By the way to make it more made; i equiped it the canon shield... so it gets more confusing to do what AoW?

                                                    How to farm for this crap.

                                                    Get the Black Bow. Get the Blue Dancer Charm. Get both of the arrow talismans. Get the Ritual Sword Talisman.

                                                    Start at the grace below it.

                                                    Kill the first 3 flowers.

                                                    Black Bow Glass Cannon Barrage!

                                                    Honestly having buffs like Golden Vow and Flame, Grant me Strength also help.

                                                    This method is far less annoying than the usual one from the canopy.

                                                            I found a way to farm it that is reasonably effective; from Haligtree town, go up the ladder and sprint to the first area on the branch that doesnt have rot sprouts, by then the first volley from the Envoy will be almost in so simply dodge into them to make short work of it, then sprint to the area near the 2 mushrooms you need to jump off from and dodge the 2nd volley in similar fashion. Jump off, be wary because a 3rd volley is coming and they tend to weasel between the branches so be ready to dodge or tank a hit or two, afterward simply sprint unto the branch that go toward the giant and youll be safe. Then stay on the junction of the branch you're on and the branch the giant is on, and it'll spam volley into the ground whithout moving, allowing for an easy kill, especially if you use the Envoy longhorn as to shoot over the branch protecting you. While I recommend just going back go grace after he is dead, if you're feeling courageous there is another giant to your right but be wary as he is protected by goons, so imo not really worth the hassle. You can even safely pop a silver pickled fowl thingie from this spot as he cannot hit you.

                                                            With 99 arcane, silver scarab and silver pickled fowl leg, I got it in less than half an hour.

It will make your life so much easier. You need 27 FTH to use; equip the two fingers talisman if you need a +5 to get there. The giant horn attacks went from one shotting me if I didn't time shield just right to being an annoyance more than anything, which I will take over deaths mid-farm any day of the week ;) Best of luck, bros and sisters.

                                                                            • Anonymous

Go up the ladder and clear out the three Miranda Roots to get space, and then dash up, turn around and just use Ranni's Dark Moon to annihilate the big Oracle. The spell not only cancels all of the bubbles that it hits, but it also draws them into it as it travels. You're completely safe this way and it is infinitely faster, because you can just run up to the branch and over as soon as that one's down. It's an absolute breeze.

I had 4 longhorns as well from killing the medium-sized fella in the way, so I handed 'em off to some random folks doing co-op at Radagon/Elden Beast lol. Share the doot

Climb the ladder, run past the rot flowers, drop down on the small branch to the left, follow the path up to the two giant oracles. You can farm all 3 with this method.

                                                                                        • This was a huge disappointment. The Longhorn weapon art does way more damage and staggers more. I was expecting to have several bubbles, not just one which can be dodged more easily than a telegraphed fireball.

                                                                                          I'm 40 STR / 80 FTH and I'm just not seeing the utility here, I regret leveling it to +10.

Sure its tedious but its not back breaking, its just a grind, as all farming is. I believe in all of you

Maybe that one has a higher drop chance?

The LH seems the better weapon from my playing around; the GH doesn't seem worth the effort of farming now that I have one.

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

I've farmed this on 3 characters now, with the first two i farmed the Town sog with the flowers run for several hours each, during several days amd nothing dropped, moved to Canopy sog and dropped within 10 tries on each character. On my third character i did the Canopy run from the start and got it after 16 tries. It seems that the Canopy run has a significantly higher droprate than the easier Town run. Good luck fellow Tarnished, i hope this helps.

That said, I have a farm method with nearly zero risk.

                                                                                                        1. Go to the Haligtree Town site of grace.
                                                                                                        2. Climb the ladder upwards, kill the two flowers directly in front of you, and turn around.
                                                                                                        3. You will be able to see the Great Oracular Envoy's head, and hit it with arrows. Because its animation goes down to doot, it won't be able to hit you if you get a good spot. You can safely kill it at now risk.
                                                                                                        4. Run a bit up the branch until you can see if it dropped anything. If the dot is white, it will be a Strip of White Flesh and should be ignored. If it is purple, it will be the Greathorn. If you're like me you'll check every white dot anyway just in case.
                                                                                                        5. Go up the branch, drop down to where the Scarab is, and up to the place you killed the Envoy to collect your item. You only have to walk around two flowers, so it is very safe.

                                                                                                        This is a completely safe route, so you can respec to 99 Arcane with no risk. You're far enough in the game to have the Silver Scarab for discovery. You can get three kills per Fowl Foot if you don't grab white dots. I recommend using the Pulley Crossbow, which you can get easily if you are this far in at the Craftsman's Shack, because it doesn't rely on stats so you can respec to 99 Arcane no problems. Bleed bolts are best; Bloodbone bolts you can get the recipe and both ingredients in a low-level spot safely, or buy them with all the Runes the Envoys will drop from the trader in the Moghwyn Dynasty Mausoleum.

                                                                                                        With the Bleed Pulley this is equally as fast as all the kill-one-Envoy routes, and only 30% slower than the one kill-two-Envoys route. More importantly, if you respect to 99 Arcane the Envoys are very dangerous in melee, and you waste time by dying. This is almost the fastest way, and you can turn off your brain and put a nice podcast or movie on to relax to, since it will still take a long time.

                                                                                                        • Anonymous

This is a route you can take to get the Oracle Envoy Ashes. From the grace go south and up the ladder. Then follow the branch until you can drop down to a branch on your left. If you're quick you only have to worry about dodging one attack from behind. If your timing is perfect you will dodge another barrage while falling. Continue to the follow the branch dodging the barrages it will fire at you. As you approach you will be safe from attack because it will be blocked off from the branches. Once you've killed him you can drop back down and use a beacon to indicate where you need to fall off to make the following runs less hectic.

Farmed for 2 hours straight with 324 discovery (99 arc + silver scarab + silver fowl foot every run). Start from Haligtree Canopy, take the way around the ants and jump from the mushroom to the branch below. as you run up this path, the first big envoy will shoot you 2 times. look to your left and dodge the bubbles. right before the first envoy there's a safe place where you can't get hit. eat your fowl foot and spam him dead. for the next group of enemies i used the sacred relic sword's weapon art with cerulean hidden tear mixed physick. it was a good way to kill them all from a distance but i still died some times due to rng. i've never used a silver fowl foot before but this drop is definitely the right one to use them for. it's not only super rare, but the farming route is literal hell.

                                                                                                                    First, from the site of grace "Haligtree Canopy" follow the path but drop down twice to where you would find Prattling Pate: My Beloved. Run past the Envoys and two will be on your left. Kill the one closest to you. Kill all the ants and at the top of the branch should be a single Giant Envoy, facing away from you. Also: try releveling your character at Renalla for 99 Arcane, and use the Silver Scarab Talisman (found past an illusory wall in the Hidden Path to the Haligtree Catacombs, on the invisible floor). I got it in 45 minutes using this. I recommend loading up an Elden Ring stream or something like that. I wish you the best of luck!
