The Giant Land Octopus is a Wildlife Creature in Elden Ring. Land Octopuses are hostile even if not attacked.

Giant Land Octopuses and the smaller Land Octopuses drop Land Octopus Ovaries; this item can be used in crafting several higher tier consumables and utility items.

 

Fast, aggressive, and deadly, these larger Land Octopuses are a force to be reckoned with. They often use their tentacles to attack, and cutting them off is often a temporary solution, as they can quickly grow it back.

Elden Ring Giant Land Octopus 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 are 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.

Notes & Tips

  • Land Octopuses take reduced damage to all areas except their beak.
  • The octopus can be staggered with a single charged heavy attack from a sufficiently heavy weapon (e.g. Pickaxe). This enables a critical hit (attack the beak area) and, if repeated, dispatches the enemy quickly with low risk.
  • Land Octopuses are very weak to Hemorrhage, any weapon that can bleed will be very effective.
  • The octopus's tentacles can be cut off, but it can regenerate them. Beware of the long reach of its forward attacks.
  • Land Octopuses will sometimes eat one of their tentacles to heal themselves, staggering them before the end of the animation will prevent the healing.

      What about all those outside highroad cave? there's four or five of them there and a better farm to get their ovary for boluses.

        There is no mention of the giant land octopus in consecrated snowfield, that's highly negligent considering how stupidly large their health pool is there. In consecrated snowfield they have more HP than a couple of the shard bearers and that isn't any kind of exaggeration, if they are target-locked the damage they take before dying is plainly visible.
        There are two worth mentioning that can cause problems one is outside the entrance to the cave of the forlorn, the cave is barred by an imp door otherwise it would be easy to lure it away and sprint past it but I don't know if its possible to use the key before it catches up to you again. The one that did cause me problems is hanging off a cliff south east of the apostate derelict and it's a major f**king headache if you want to kill the death rite bird that spawns there for the 'explosive ghostflame' sorcery it drops on defeat.
        That death rite bird won't melt from holy water pots like all the others do, it has the same weakness to holy damage but it hits a lot harder than any of the previous death rite birds, including the one in Caelid. It can quickly and easily kill a player before that weakness can be taken advantage of. There is a ledge that provides some cover to use a flask or to avoid the worst of the ghostflame and it is preferable to fighting it out in the open but that f**king octopus had to be killed from the top of the cliff first or I'd have been fighting both that and the death bird. I was using three full flasks worth of FP casting black flame down on it so I was at a disadvantage to the death rite bird every time because of my now limited FP. It doesn't help that it can heal itself almost back to full health so it has to take enough damage to outpace its healing. With 20 / 20 hindsight I should have left that death bird until I had beaten the final boss and claimed the sacred relic sword from its remembrance with Enia it would have been many times easier.

          Run up to their beak. One cast of Flame of the Redmanes. Instant stagger + reposte. These guys can be stunlocked infinitely this way.

            Sometimes they're really easy and slow, other times the instant they see you they'll immediately just throw an annoying violent flailing tantrum that makes them almost impossible to safely approach them, its rather annoying how random their behavior is.

              These things look less like Octopi and more like Shoggoths, don't think there's any breed of octopus thats this gross/weird.

              • Anonymous

                Nowhere near as scary as they look, since they're really easy to stance break particularly if you hit them in the face with some jump attacks or heavy attacks,

                  These guys are STUPIDLY weak to sleep. Two or three smacks with the Sword of St. Trina and they’re out like a lightswitch

                    If you are two-handing any Greatsword, these become super easy to deal with, as long as you attack their beak. Stagger them, crit, charge r2 to chain stagger again, crit, charge R2, crit, charge R2, crit etc. Keep doing that until it's dead. You take 0 damage because it's getting stunlocked. It doesn't even matter if your weapon is weak, it'll just take a little longer.

                      The ones in Consecrated Snowfield are just completely insane. They have like 15K HP, their limbs can't be severed, and they regenerate health almost instantly.

                        These guys are vulnerable to fire* and bleed. Bloodflame weapon wrecks them, as does Fire's Deadly Sin if you have a bleed weapon equipped. Also Jump-attacks, Guard-counters, and just about any other heavy attack, as long as you hit the beak will very quickly stance-break these creatures allowing for riposte (which does hilarious damage). *They are normally weak to fire, however standing in water or rain in Elden Ring (this applies to everything including the player) greatly increases fire resistance and greatly reduces lightning resistance, which these guys are frequently found near water so keep that in mind.

                          Mighty shot (or whatever it's called, the WA available to most longbows) works really well from far range, so long as you hit them, locked on, from the front. Works especially well with Horn Bow or other dual damage ranged weapon. But yeah, locked on from the front will hit them square in the break 90% of the time

                            So I noticed these are very resilient to most magic I tried, but Glintstone Sorceries are incredibly effective. Great Glintstone Shard will melt it quickly.

                            • Experimented a bit, the following methods were very effective for me: weapons with lighting, fire or fire art affinity (when you apply an fire/lightning ash of war). These seemed far more effective than applying fire or lightning grease. Allowed me to deal 700 damage per hit and crit for 8000 damage when staggered.
                              Another method is the Pulley crossbow (shoots 3 bolts per shot) using Bloodbone bolt, about 2500 damage per volley.

                                They also seem very weak to a crit attack with a cold affinity weapon. With my stats I did 4k against it using a cold lordsworn sword, compared to doing only 1.7k with a bleed affinity lordsworn sword. Both times the octopus was under the frostbite status effect.

                                  Is it just me, or are there some of these (in Liurnia of the Lakes, for example) whose main arms can't be severed or at least take an inordinate amount of damage to be severed?

                                  As a test, I went to one of the ones in Liurnia that I had noticed this with and kept hacking away at one of its arms, determined to keep going until it was severed.

                                  The octopus died from the damage before the arm came off.

                                    Also worth noting: they have a grab attack (because every bloody thing larger than a wiener dog has to have a grab attack, right?), and they really don’t like Lightning Spears to the face.

                                      best punching bag in the game. the one right outside cave of forlorn has like 20k+ hp and take low damage from all kind of weapon so you can test out many stuff on it.

                                        Went into a fight with one completely out of FP and HP, and I figured, "It's fine, I'll just use arrows/bolts"

                                        I poisoned them. I rotted them. Heal-heal-heal-heal.

                                        Bound to run out of healing eventually, right? No. They never run out. PoS kept healing through 7 applications of rot and poison, completely depleting all my arrows.

                                        You can do literally tens of thousands of damage to them, and they'll heal through it, over and over. So, keep that in mind if you're trying to take them down in a more leisurely/safe way (re: it probably won't work).

                                          Best way to fight these freaks is to hit their head a few times and they'll stagger. Riposte and bask in the insane damage it deals to them, watch as 70% of their health dissappears

                                            Careful these f&*#$ers can grab and eat you if the grab attack kills you (which it almost surely will).

                                                    A very safe way to fight them is to just circle around to their sides and chip away at them, as they have practically no way to attack people behind them or to their sides (other than their easily readable jump-slam) and turn slowly enough that you can consistently keep away from their head.

                                                            Charged R2 or even better something like Flame of the Redmanes weapon art will allow you to repeatedly down it in one hit to riposte it until it dies. It literally will not be able to fight back, or at least confirmed with the weapon art. Charged R2 seemed to do the same but not entirely as reliably.
