Erdtree Avatar is a Boss in Elden Ring. This large, headless creature looks like a tree stump wielding a large staff, and is usually found guarding Minor Erdtrees. Most avatars drop materials for improving the Flask of Wondrous Physick. This is an optional boss as players are not required to defeat it to advance in Elden Ring.

Where to Find Elden Ring Erdtree Avatar

Erdtree Avatar Combat information

Negations (or Absorptions)

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

Erdtree Avatar Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Erdtree Avatar:

  • Try to end up behind it whenever you can, as it will always turn to face you before it attacks
  • It's extremely weak to Fire damage, so Fire incantations, arrows, or Grease
  • Volcano Pot and Redmane Fire Pot also do the job, if you dont use spells
  • Fist type weapon users should attack by either jumping attacks or on the back/side. Attacking the front may cause the issue of "missing hits".

 

Melee Strategy

Avoid Ashes: Since most summons can't dodge, they'll die quickly to the Erdtree Avatar's heavy attacks. They'll also make it harder for you to predict where its attacks will go and thus harder to dodge them. It has such a small stable of moves, it's better to focus on dodging them one-on-one than trying to distract it with a summon.

Pony Ride: Because the Avatar's attacks and movement are both relatively slow, it's particularly vulnerable to mounted combat. Make sure you've got enough Rowa Raisins to keep Torrent happy and you've got enough armor to survive a single staff swipe, and start circling it clockwise. Slash its back until it starts winding up for an attack. If it does an overhead swing, you can keep circling and attacking it as long as you don't end up beneath the staff when it falls. Otherwise, ride away when the attack starts and come back once it's done. You can jump over the shockwave from Erdtree Slam if you're struggling to escape its radius in time.

Sticking Close: If you're fighting the avatar on foot, it's better to stick in close and learn the timings of its relatively few attacks so you can dodge through them and keep hitting in between. Its windups are slow and telegraphed, so this shouldn't be too hard. Try to get behind it when you can to make it waste time turning to face you, and if you can't stick to its right side where you can roll behind when it tries to stomp. The only time you should leave close quarters is when it does Golden Land.

Magic and Ranged Strategy

Tank of Ash: Choose a summon that's good at surviving, because Erdtree Avatar hits hard. 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 can keep the boss distracted for quite a while.

Circle and Strike: Keep your distance, using Torrent if possible, and keep moving around it so you don't get backed into a corner. Almost all of its attacks are close quarters, but you'll need to be wary of its hopping downward swing and its Golden Land attack. Don't get greedy: make sure you're always keeping your distance while you patiently whittle down its health.

 

Erdtree Avatar Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Swing Swings its staff in various directions These swings are all very slow and have poor tracking, so you'll usually have plenty of time to roll or just run out of the way
Stomp Raises its right leg and stomps down Roll behind it and get in a few hits while it turns to face you
Side Sweep Sweeps its staff counterclockwise along its left flank Roll clockwise into the sweep. You back be able to get in a hit before it follows up with a clockwise swing if your weapon is quick enough
Erdtree Slam Jumps in the air and slams the ground with its whole body, dealing Holy damage in a small area around it You can roll back to avoid this, but if you roll towards its back just as it starts falling you can avoid the damage, get in a few hits, and position yourself well for future attacks. You can also jump over the shockwave and land a jumping attack at the same time, but be careful to start from far enough away that you don't connect with its body as it falls
Golden Land Holds staff in the air and then slams it vertically into the ground, creating a small burst of Holy damage. A large orb of light then grows above its head and shoots Holy projectiles at you. Only used when it's below 60% health Get some distance so its melee attacks won't hit you, and then run in circles around it until the projectiles stop firing

Erdtree Avatar Lore, Notes & Other Trivia

  • The attacks and behaviors are very similar to the Asylum and Stray Demon bosses in Dark Souls, including the body slam and staff attacks.

      Leyndell Royal Capital one is false, you can summon spirit ashes for it just fine. In fact the icon pops up a ways before you encounter it

        Anyone else had the mountaintops one duplicate? I think it might have been a glitch with it returning to the tree after getting too far away but I'm not sure. I killed it and it gave regular runes and drops, and they both had the same health bar and could attack/be attacked. I don't know if it's scripted or not.

          Troll's Hammer does wonders against these guys. Huge AR, split between strike damage and fire damage, and it is buffable on top of that. It will melt those tree stumps.

            Another Erdtree Avatar in Caelid Wilds near Dragonbarrow Fork. A Greenburst Crystal Tear and Flame-Shrouding Cracked Tear are the rewards for defeating it.

              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.

                  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.

                    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?

                                            This page only mentions the regular versions without scarlet rot. Putrid Avatar is what many of you are looking for.

                                                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.

                                                    Fire damage seems to wreck them so much it feels like a cheese, you can literally just throw fire pots at them and at least mostly kill them.

                                                      Ngl, I actually really like the OST of the Boss variant of these. That rot puddle butt slam damage, however..

                                                      • 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.

                                                          There’s also one of these things by the Minor Erdtree in West Caelid. There’s considerably less space to fight it, and it has an attack that inflicts scarlet rot.

                                                              If you grab Flame of the Fell God from Adan in the Malefactor's Evergaol, you can take these things out pretty quickly from a safe distance. I killed one in three hits with this spell. It does massive damage, especially if you have high faith.

                                                                Only one I had an issue with so far was the one in Leyndell, as it dropped on my head out of nowhere, and was in a Binding of Isaac level, troll arena. I had to book it out of there and rest at the grace. I need to come at this one with a different strategy to usual... Essentially they're just Asylum Demon, spec'd into a Faith/Str build. (other than the one in Caelid that is trying out some DoT spells)

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.

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
