Erdtree Greatbow is a Greatbow in Elden Ring. The Erdtree Greatbow scales primarily with Faith and is a good Weapon for ranged combat.

 

Greatbow featuring Erdtree styling. In times of old, when faith and battle went hand in hand, this weapon was created in tandem with the Golden Great Arrow.

Scales all arrow damage with faith, revealing its true worth when used with holy-infused arrows.

 

Where to Find Erdtree Greatbow in Elden Ring

The Erdtree Greatbow weapon can be found at the following location:

  • Killing the chariot in Fringefolk Hero's Grave (requires two Stonesword Keys to access.).
  • Follow the path to where you get the Erdtree's Favor talisman, but walk off the edge before you reach the bridge, there is a platform there, then jump off again. You'll find some stairs that lead to an elevator, take the elevator up. Be careful of the dragon knight shade on the far left. once he's dealt with, go to where he was, and look to the right, there are 3 large pots suspended by 3 ropes on the ceiling. In order to get the bow, you have to kill the chariot by dropping one of the pots on it as it rolls by. I used the longbow, and timed it by 1 Mississippi after it makes contact with the wall closest to you. [Elden Ring Map here]

      "Ah, this Greatbow? I shan't need it, with no dragons to hunt... I know not if a human could even operate it, but here. Thy need outweighs mine."

        I thought this would be a good replacement for Jar Cannon on faith build (16 str, 14 dex, 60 fth), but it disappoints really. It is locked into Holy damage, which sucks for most cases in this game. It is heavily forced to be used with golden arrows, which limits it's AoE capacity when using golem arrows.

        Also, it's damage SUCKS. Really, I tested it on common soldier. Erdtree Bow +10 with Golden Arrow did measly 479 damage to him. For instance, my Cleanrot Knight Sword when 2-handed deals 499 damage to him in one light hit. It's just awful in what it's supposed to do.

          Very solid option for STR/FAI builds. Holy damage has very few ranged options, so don't sleep on this baby.

            Instead of through and through, this thing's unique skill should be firing that holy lightning bolt thing that radagon uses.

              I'm already a faith build on my main file and want to use this since it scales with faith, and I also just want to try something new. Is it worth it for PvE the whole game?

              • Anonymous

                I truly cannot speak highly enough of this baby. Complements really well with a paladin build like mine that opts to defend more than offend in co-op PvE. Damage is strong too, with arrow reach and sting talismans at 70 strength and 80 faith doing over 1100 damage on a non-buffed headshot, and around 1500 with the ash. Buffed with Golden Vow and the holy tear physic this thing is doing over 2200 to the albinaurics in Mohgwyn Palace. Love this thing to death, just wish the scaling was higher.

                  this thing really needs a buff, lowest AR of any greatbow. though i suppose it is the one that can be grabbed most early in the game, and what the game considers the "standard" greatbow is found all the way in Altus.

                    Im not sure if its a bug or not, but even when combined with holy arrows this doesnt seem to do the extra damage against undead enemies. Which kinda sucks because this thing looks absolutely swank

                      After a couple of failed attempts at getting the bow, when I teleported back to the stranded graveyard grace, I had this weird glitch happen where I heard a troll (I think) roaring and groaning. It could be heard around the grace and in the nearby dark area that leads to the tutorial cave, but it stopped as soon as i went into the poison area. It happened three times in a row and I even got some runes from something dying, then the next time I teleported back it just stopped. It creeped the hell out of me the first time and I even looked around in the chance I unlocked a secret miniboss or something but found nothing of course.

                      • At 20/47/47 STR/DEX/FTH this is worthless - it weighs more and does less damage than the basic Greatbow, even with golden arrows. On Gatefront soldier, Through and Through did 1097 with Greatbow and 963 with this. Had shard of alexander and arrow's sting talisman equipped.

                          Everyone talks about how to get it but not how they use it. Useful in boss fights? Any good in pvp? Does the range/damage make it better for afk farmers than the cannon?

                            The good: You can get this weapon early-game.
                            The bad: It splits half its damage into Holy... ( 6 enemies in the game are weak to holy)

                              Actual strength requirement is 14, as it doesn't allow you to use it without using it two-handed. As such, 13 would result in an effective strength of 19.5, just barely short, and 14 results in 21, just barely more than enough.

                                If you shoot the Dragon Knight now from one of the safe spots, he will teleport directly to you. Be careful!

                                  You can draw out the Dragon Knight at the top of the lift by shooting at him from one of the safe spot arches at the bottom of the first ramp - the one with two enemies either side of the ramp. Just shoot him with a crossbow or whatever; he'll run out, jump down and get cleaned up by the chariot.

                                    the best way ive found to do this is get in place aim at the jar on the right and as soon as the chariot hits the wall below you fire. works with bow and crossbow both and hasnt failed for me yet. literally no counting needed just shoot when you here the chariot hit the wall

                                      The Erdtree Greatbow doesn't seem to perma kill skeletons, tested with Golden Great Arrows. The smaller Erdtree Bow using Golden Arrows does perma kill them though.

                                        "I used the longbow, and timed it by 1 Mississippi" is the most american thing I have read all day hahaha
                                        Great tip for the timing tho anyway, thx!

                                          Is this thing bugged? Even when using the proper golden arrows, it deals less damage than the regular erdtree bow.

                                            You don't have to go through the whole thing. Dragon fire from the safe corner of the track (before the second ramp, below the pots) where the chariot turns around will sever the ropes too, I just got the great bow that way.

                                              what anon got after the Godfrey fight is the Erdtree Bow, whereas the Erdtree *Great*bow indeed drops as stated here

                                                I used this greatbow against the Draconic Tree Sentinel boss outside capital city.

                                                +5 Greatbow, arrow's reach and arrow's sting talismans equipped. All shots fired using Through and Through war art.
                                                31 STR, 14 DEX, 30 FAI

                                                Regular great arrows did 395-405, golden great arrows did 690-700. Range was approximately the same for each shot, fired just past the rocks looking straight down the path towards the gate.

                                                  Location of the bow seems wrong. I got it from the chest in the same room as Godfrey. After the fight climb up the root and approach the walkway to the Erdtree. Drop down the roof on the left and enter through a open window. You'll get Golden order principia (incantation spell book) and the bow.

                                                    Use a dragon breath attack aimed at the roof just when it is turning towards you from the bottom and you will get the item. If you don't have a bow.
