Erdtree Avatar is a Boss in Elden Ring. Erdtree Avatar is a large, headless creature that looks like a tree stump wielding a large staff, and is found in multiple locations, guarding the Minor Erdtrees. Each avatar drops a different set of Wondrous Flask-related materials. This is an optional boss as players are not required to defeat it to advance in Elden Ring. Not to be confused with the Putrid Avatar, a variant that inflicts scarlet rot.

Elden Ring Erdtree Avatar Boss

Erdtree Avatar is a Field Boss found in multiple locations, guarding the Minor Erdtrees. 

  • They are optional Bosses.
  • Erdtree Avatars are Field Type Bosses.
  • There are usually Stakes of Marika near them, allowing for a quick respawn.
  • Multiplayer is available for this fight.
  • Spirit Summons are available for this fight.
  • Torrent is available when fought in the open world, and not inside a dungeon.

Elden Ring Erdtree Avatar Location

There are multiple Erdtree Avatar bosses that can be found in the Lands Between:

Non-boss variants of the Erdtree Avatar can also be encountered in the following locations:

Erdtree Avatar Combat Information

 

Absorptions:

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.

Resistances:

The resistance numbers is 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.

Erdtree Avatar Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Erdtree Avatar:

 

Mounted Strategy

Setup: Put a decent number of Rowa Raisins in a quick item slot. Equip enough armor to survive a staff swipe. Surviving an overhead mace smash is less important. Take a look at the environment. The tight quarters around Caelid's Minor Erdtree means you need to adjust your strategy from a circle to a forward and back flow. You can use the Avatar to kill enemies in the area, including stronger ones like minotaurs. Don't bother with ashes. The summoned NPCs die too fast, and more importantly, it's difficult to tell which direction the Avatar is swinging. It's much easier to learn how to dodge it's simple attacks instead of relying on ashes to distract it.

Circle around the Avatar to the left, slashing it in the back until it starts a windup, then move away. Go for one hit until you learn the timing better, and then start increasing the number of attacks.

If the Avatar winds up, run away. If the Avatar jumps, run away and be ready to heal Torrent. If the Avatar smashes the top of the hammer into the ground at it's feet, run around in circles at mid range until all of the holy spears pass. Repeat until the Avatar is chopped down.

Ranged Mounted should do the exact same thing, just without diving in to melee. Don't try and cast while it is swiping at you, its size allows it to close gaps much faster than expected. Burn it with fire.

 

Melee Strategy

Melee is nearly the same strategy as Mounted Melee, but you'll need to dodge its swings and jumping AOE. You should try and get some distance for the holy spear attack.

When you encounter the one at the Mountaintops of the Giants, most of its move is similar to the ones you've already fought before, except that it can summon a clone. The clone shares the same health bar as the original Erdtree Avatar, so focusing your attacks on either one of them is just fine. The strategy for this is when the clone is summoned, try separating them and focus on one Erdtree Avatar only since they share the same health bar, it doesn't matter who you attack. If you manage to separate them far away enough, the other one will de-aggro and stop following you.

The Erdtree Avatar located at Caelid is also challenging, as most of its attacks will inflict scarlet rot on you. The move you need to watch out for is the Scarlet Rot Stomp, where puddles of scarlet rot poison will scatter around the area. Don't try and attack him when the scarlet rot is still around, as it will linger for a while on the ground. Just wait for the boss to do its normal attacks, dodge accordingly and get in a few attacks in when possible to chip away its health.

Magic and Ranged Strategy

Bring your desired ash spirit. the Lone Wolf AshesMad Pumpkin Head Ashes, or Spirit Jellyfish Ashes are all good choices, since the Wolves summon three, and the Mad Pumpkin and Jellyfish are both very tanky and they can keep the Erdtree Avatar busy for quite a while. Glintstone Pebble can take him down if you have good spacing and time. Just be sure to back away when needed, and then begin your assault again.

Alternatively, you can equip the Flame Sling incantation, mount Torrent and sprint around the Boss, while hurling fireballs at them. Be sure to explore the surrounding area carefully so you don't get stuck or fall off a cliff. If the Erdtree Avatar tries attacking, just sprint back or to the side. Prepare several Flasks of Cerulean Tears so you don't run out of FP.

Only be aware of its massive staff as it deals a huge amount of damage.

 

Erdtree Avatar Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Erdtree Slam Jumps in the air and slams the ground with its whole body, dealing AoE Damage. Roll back to avoid. Roll forward with good timing or jump for extra hits.
Staff Strike Leans back and smashes the staff against the ground, can be followed up by a right to left slanted swing with the staff depending on the players distance after the initial smash. Roll to your right.
Golden Land Holds staff before slamming it on the ground, creating an AoE blast and light orbs that shoot towards you. You can just walk or run in one direction and the orbs will completely miss you, just keep in mind that the Erdtree Avatar can also swing his staff to you so you might need to create some distance before dodging the orbs.
Clone Summon Holds the staff before slamming it on the ground, summoning another Erdtree Avatar, but the clone will also share the same health bar as the original Erdtree Avatar. This move is only accessible to the one you'll encounter at the Mountaintops of the Giants Separate the two Erdtree Avatars away from each other as far as possible, until the other one de-aggros. Then you can focus on killing one, since they both share the same health bar.

Erdtree Avatar Lore, Notes & Other Trivia

  • The attacks and behaviors are very similar to the Asylum and Stray Demons of Dark Souls, including the body slam and staff attacks.
  • The homing Holy Dart attack can be used as a skill. See Ash of War: Golden Land.

      Anything that deals fire damage (yes that includes rivers ganker bois) even a little is a dramatic improvement in the damage department. As for fighting him, just circle and time your rolls to his swings and jumps. If he does that blast attack just strafe away or hide behind something. The rot variant is even easier, just circle behind him constantly as he spams the rot splat attack. It only goes out in front of him so if you stay close ur fine.

        People complain about these dudes being "Stray/Asylum Demon Reskins" but i think their fighting style and moveset is a cute nostalgic callback.

        • Anonymous

          Is no one gonna talk about how hard the theme for these big tree bois goes? These dudes have the best music of all of the Minor Bosses in my opinion.

          • Anonymous

            Am i the only one who kinda likes these dudes? They are fairly fun to fight and their reappearances make sense, considering how they are guardian spirits created by the Erdtree to protect it and the minor ones, they are hardly incredible bosses, but i would take them any day of the week over those dumb Ulcerated Tree Spirits.

              The flaming strike ash of war works incredibly well agaisnt this guy. I beat him first try by hopping on torrent when he cloned, seperating them, then spamming it until he died. Would definetely reccomend you try this.

                Alternative Strat for the one on the mountaintop of the giants:
                Use pest threads. Target one of them, and but the other one between you two. The threads will penetrate the first one to hit the one you are targeting. Because they share the same health bar, this effectively means you deal double damage with the spell. This is a pretty safe and easy strategy so long as you only do one cast at a time between dodging the strikes. The avatar in the back (the one you are targeting) will actually be pretty far away from you because the one in the middle is big and will put you out of range of most of his attacks, but pest threads can still reach.

                  The copy paste of this boss feels extra bad, they didn't even create a new monster to copy paste, they took a 10 year old model and literally copy pasted that everywhere. I would have been OK with maybe one as a reference but God are there way too many of these

                    I've had more than enough of these f**kers now. It wasn't a fun boss to fight twice in liurnia or caelid early on and it isn't fun in mountaintop of the giants now either.

                      Literally a worse designed version of the asylum demon. Almost every small-mid sized weapon, that isn't a straight-sword, can miss them at point blank with standard R1 attacks. I don't understand how the devs could make such a mistake when they got it right years ago on DS1.

                        For the one in Caelid, near Rotview Balcony, I found that if you approach the tree from the cliff above you can attack the Avatar with Loretta's Bow. The only way it'll be able to hit you is by casting Golden Land, and this is easily avoided by taking a few steps back on top of the cliff.

                          The 1 in the Weeping Peninsula was pretty easy. The 1 to the Northeast of the Lake in Liurnia can absolutely do one. I don't know why I'm struggling against him, but I'm furious about it. I try to take out his stupid ancestral followers doing that stomping first, but sometimes they stunlock me. I did switch to my Lone Wolves and they are helping better. I hate the ground slam a la Asylum Demon AoE, but I also hate that they do similar attacks to what Margit did and I struggled against him as well (Godrick, by contrast, was easy for me).

                            Be advised that in mountaintop of the giants there are actually TWO of them, the second s.o.b. ganked me while I was fighting the first. Play unfair with us huh? Rotten breath one then ride Torrent across the bridge, repeat. They must share a health bar, took three full rot breaths(121 fp) on one to take them out.

                              The specific type of avatar will matter regarding poison resistance. The putrid avatar does a huge scarlet rot AoE, and seems to be immune to scarlet rot and poison. The normal non-poisonous ones seem to take poison and scarlet rot just fine. What does work on all of them is black flame, for the putrid ones if you use the black flame incantation it works pretty well. How I got mine.

                                someone mentions fire pots, but for the avatars in leyndell, mountaintops of the giants and deeproot depths if you have the cookbook that allows you to craft them, volcano pots will do even more damage, they are a single ingredient recipe and the volcanic stones are everywhere once you pass seethwater grace in mt gelmir, you'll find a couple of hundred in no time. I don't know how they compare to the giant's flame ritual pot, but the cookbook for volcano pots will be available earlier and the stone needed to craft them is everywhere in mt gelmir. I've been using them on the omen in shunning grounds and the damage is impressive and it ticks away for a little while as well.

                                  I've noticed something on this page that I've seen on wikis for other bosses and enemies as well. the resistance info says the avatar is strong against poison and scarlet rot, but its resistance numbers for both are 154, I wouldn't call that strong against either status effect. I've recently been in leyndell catacombs, there are four or five omen in there, with more in the shunning grounds near the underground roadside grace. their page gives their resistance to poison and scarlet rot as being 227-250, compared to the info for other enemies this would make you think the omen have good resistance to poison and scarlet rot, except they don't I've used poison arrows to kill them in leyndell catacombs and the shunning grounds, the status is easily inflicted on them with maybe half a dozen poison arrows. unless resistance means the poison status doesn't last as long as it would on enemies with little to no resistance?

                                        A fairly easy strategy for some of these while using ranged attacks is to use a hit-and-run tactic while running around the tree.

                                        The tree blocks his light orbs and he will often de-aggro, allowing you to circle around and cheap-shot him in the back. Then just run back around the tree again and repeat.

                                              • The Putrid ones in Caelid, I cheesed both at range where they couldn't rot me or get to me and the holy beams hit below what I was standing on, longbow+16 and homemade fire arrows, both arrow rings Hawk, and Bow only always active Leo ring, and Lloyd's Sword Ring, in west Caelid I jumped down onto branches above him, I think there was also Rune arc somewhere in those branches he was easy 20-30 shots, in dragonbarrow I stood on the edge of the cliff North of Fort Faroth and shot down, it was a little further, and it had a ton more health, think it took a mix of about 150 fire arrows. I hadn't really been to Volcano manor at that point so I didn't have fire clutch ring, or a 4th "ring" pouch.

I found that if you roll to the left or right to get behind them, you will usually not get hit by any scarlet rot as it appears to just spread it outwards in a cone. You can do this to get a few hits in or throw a fire pot to punish.

                                                                        • Anonymous

Small mistakes are punished with tons of damage or death. You can easily get ****ed by getting stuck to terrain or falling of, if you arent aware of your surroundings, as you needs tons of space against their huge aoe attacks. Cheesing them with range or going in for one mounted attack and then get out of range is much easier.

                                                                          • Anonymous

AoE damage when they jump up to slam back into the ground, jump yourself just before they land. I never took any damage and got a good few easy hits in every time. If you're in the air as the avatar lands, you shouldn't take any damage from it.

Sad to see really but that’s the world we live in.

                                                                                                Just went horseback and rode circles around him. Most of the time he just stands still doing nothing. Occasionally he does a melee attack that has poor range and can't really hit you on horseback. His seeking missiles also all miss simply by riding that circle around him. No dodge neccessary.
                                                                                                Meanwhile you can spam throw black flames at him without ever stopping or even facing him once.

                                                                                                Dropped 90k runes for me which i was kinda shocked by. This page states 9.6k which seems more reasonable. What happened there?
                                                                                                Anyway those were the easiest 8 level-ups of my life lol.

Rather annoying, otherwise just circle, slow turn makes this fight a breeze.

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                                    Easy strategy even at SL1 with +0 weapons. It is melee, but any build can use. Tested on Caelid's rot version with prior mentioned stats.

                                                                                                    Ash Flame of Redmanes and enough Estus to cast it 9x, or less if you have upgraded weapons and better stats. I used it on a Lordsworn Longsword but you can probably even use it on your chosen critical weapon. Every 3 casts of the weapon art would cause the boss to stagger and you could riposte it from the front. It would interrupt its attack, including the jump rot attack but don't use it during the jump attack unless it is the third cast that will stagger it unless you want to risk dying.

                                                                                                    Swap to your high critical weapon like a Rapier, or what I used was a Sacred Misericorde +0 which has 140 critical and was the best option I had for my configuration since I did not have another fire based Ash. I killed it in 3 ripostes but someone not doing a challenge run might do it in far less.

                                                                                                    Choose a summon that will not die instantly and, preferably, has more than one summon or good aggro to make it even easier if you need. On average if you cast it right and depending on boss' actions you will probably have to dodge 1-3 attacks per stagger so it makes the fight trivial and clean.

                                                                                                    • Anonymous
