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]

    • 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!

                  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.
