Grafted Scion is a Field Boss in Elden Ring. Grafted Scion is an amorphous mass of bodies that wields two swords and a greatshield, found in various locales, most prominently in Stormveil Castle. This is an optional boss as players don't need to defeat it to advance in the game.

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.

 Grafted Scion Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Grafted Scion:

  • Keep your distance as much as possible, wait out its combos, and only attack when it's safe
  • Avoid guarding as much as possible, since its long combos will quickly drain your stamina
  • Trigetting Sleep does not put him to Sleep, but staggers for few seconds.
  • Tanky Ashes like Engvall or speedy ones like the Warhawk are recommended. Ashes that summon multiple weak entities are less favorable, but can provide great distraction.
  • Use quick spells like Glintstone Pebble that are quick to cast.

 

Melee Strategy

Bait: Keep your distance and try to get it to use Leaping Stab, Crawling Stabs or (later in the fight) Piercing Stabs. Dodge the attack, get in a couple hits, and then back off. Don't get greedy: it will often use Scream after being damaged, and you don't want to be nearby for that. You can also watch for two consecutive clockwise slashes: this always signals the end of a combo, and you can safely get in a hit after it as well.

Magic and Ranged Strategy

Bide Your Time: Keep your distance and focus on dodging if you can and guarding if you have to. Don't attack until you know it's safe, such as during the long recovery period after Leaping Stab, Crawling Stabs, its double-sword Stab, or (later in the fight) Piercing Stabs. It has long combos and can react to being shot with moves that will close distance, so stay on your toes once it has recovered.

 

Grafted Scion Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Slash parry icon 40pxSlashes one or both of its swords in various directions Usually used as part of a combo, so dodge away and wait for the combo to finish
Rolling Slash parry icon 40pxSwings both its swords in one direction while rolling, then swings them twice again before scuttling back a bit Dodge away twice.
Stab parry icon 40pxQuickly stabs one or both of its swords forward Dodge to either side
Leaping Stab Leaps high into the air, then stabs its sword straight down into the ground Roll forward a beat after it reaches the apex of its leap as it raises its shield, then get in an attack while it recovers
Shield Slam Lifts its shield high above its head, then slams it down Roll clockwise around it as its body begins to descend and get in an attack while it recovers
Shield Bash Shoves its shield forward Roll back
Crawling Stabs Stands up higher and stabs the ground while walking forward, then leaps and slams down all its weapons Walk around it while it moves, then roll forward when its body begins to fall and get in a hit while it recovers
Retreat parry icon 40pxStabs one sword then slashes clockwise with the other while scuttling backwards Dodge back and to the side
Scream Lowers its head and screams, dealing damage to anything closeby. Roll back and keep your distance until it's done. Guarding isn't effective against this attack. If you're quick, you can get in one hit between this attack ending and it starting another combo
Golden Tempering Crosses its swords together, buffing them with Holy damage for one minute. Only used below 50% health, and only in the Chapel of Anticipation and Mt. Gelmir This attack takes almost three full seconds and doesn't do any damage, so use it as an opportunity to get in a few hits
Fencing Stance Stands up tall and holds one sword above it in a fencing stance, preparing to do a powerful attack. Only used below 60% health Try to stay far away to encourage it to use Piercing Stabs, which is easier to punish
Spinning Slash parry icon 40pxRaises up its lower sword, then spins clockwise four and a half times with swords extended. It will push its shield away from its body when the attack is about to end. Used in Fencing Stance you're nearby Run away when it raises up its lower sword and circle behind it as it spins, then move in as the attack finishes to get in a hit while it recovers
Piercing Stabs parry icon 40pxSpreads its swords wide, then stabs them forward three times, pauses briefly, stabs seven more times, pauses again, then stabs both swords across one another in front of it. Used in Fencing Stance when you're further away Move behind it when you see it spread its swords and start attacking as soon as you're not at risk of getting hit

parry icon 40px: Attack can be parried

      Scion
      - a young shoot or twig of a plant, especially one cut for grafting or rooting.
      - a descendant of a notable family.
      Grafted Scion is double meaning name which highlights the horticultural theme of the game (tree knights, mushroom enemies) and their status in nobility. They are similar to Godrick who is a scion of the direct line and the ones here are simply from an offshoot side of the family so lower in rank but similar in stature compared to him.

        the grafton monster:

        - listens to r&b
        - hates soldier of god, rick
        - invented ruin fragments
        - is best friends with the bugmaster
        - wrote all the messages that say "try fingers but hole"

        seems like a pretty cool dude

          Be aware that sometimes when it does the crawling stab n leap that it will sometimes recover faster than normal. IDK what causes this and i dont know if its only the intro scion or not.

            out of the tutorial bosses thus far in souls games, the Scion is up there in difficulty. hats off to those who can defeat it in first encounter.

              I was just thinking the grafted scion in Liurnia that is disguised as a crayfish drops a larval tear. There is no good reason for the grafted scion to be in Liurnia hidden and carrying a larval tear. I suspect this scion was making their way to Renalla for rebirth. The environmental story telling of this game is next level stuff.

                The turtle neck meat suggests that people haven't reproduce for ages.
                Perhaps the Scion isn't a child, but a woman. All female characters, unlike various males, have a youthful look to them (except for crones, celebrants, and thorn sorcerers(?)).

                • If this is the Gundyr of Elden Ring that you can't really start the game before beating it in Chapel of Anticipation, how many people will refund?

                    Hmm I got hit when healing as a confessor and even though I had HP left (the hit nulled my healing), my screen blacked out and I got transported to the graveyard...

                      The Grafted Scions seem to be conscious of the horrible state they are in.

                      At least the one near Boilprawn Shack. Think about it: Not only is it disguising itself; it was also holding a Larval Tear, used for rebirth.

                      Poor thing wanted to revert its' disfigurement...

                        I heard it say "Blessing" or "Blessed" right before I killed it. It was during an animation of some sort. Any info on this?

                          Noticed that they seem to have blue feathers underneath. I found this kind of interesting. Are there any enemies/animals in the game with bright blue feathers?

                            For new players:

                            Go vagabond, unequip the halberd, and spam the Square Off r2. Back to the shield whenever they do an animation. Might take a few tries tho.

                              The second Belfry "Precipice of Anticipation" can warp you back to the first scion at the beginning of the game for that sweet, sweet, revenge.

                              Info for the four Belfries: https://eldenring.wiki.fextralife.com/The+Four+Belfries

                              This Belfry easily has the best rewards out of all three IMO. You can only visit 1, as far as I know.

                              • This guy talk when he cast a buff. One of the lines is "Blessing of the Erdtree!" but the other is not that clear because of how low his voice is.

                                  Probably one of the worst aspects of this game is how unrewarding so many of its mini-bosses and special mobs like Revenants are. Even several of the bosses like some Crucible Knights don't give a reward short of a meager amount of runes. At least give something, even if incremental like in Sekiro.

                                      Do these guys have voicelines? I swear I heard the one at Mt. Gelmir talk when it was using an incantation

                                      • I can confirm that if you walk casually to that platform with butterflies (yes the one that leads you to death) without rolling or jumping or anything, the rune will not lose upon death. If you die anywhere else but not on that platform with butterflies you will lose rune no matter what.

                                          If you have the patience for an easy yet long battle, long distance attacks then using the lift up and down is a contact free fight at Stormveil

                                            You can use healing incantations against these guys, it usually staggers them in my experience (especially with the more powerful healing spells).

                                            The one at the beginning of the game however can't be hurt by healing spells

                                              Would it be possible for someone to try recreating its face in character creation? I very much would like to see that.

                                                Only hit it twice, so this is the worst of test cases, but

                                                It seems they have sleep resistance, I wasn't able to get a sleep crit either attempt, nor did they stay down long

                                                  Do these guys steal your runes when you kill them? I died twice to the one at Stormveil castle. I'm pretty sure I died with 1.9k runes the first time, when I picked them up I got 1.3k, died again and retrieved them, got ~970. If true that means they steal ~30% of your runes. After killing him I now have almost 3k, so if it's true and I didn't just go mad after using frenzied flame too often it would seem the stolen runes get added to their drop total. Also don't know if this is only the case for the one in SVC as I haven't fought the others yet.

                                                    If you’re within range of its scream, you’ll sustain a fair bit of damage and be staggered. There is no madness buildup, at least not from the encounter in Stormveil Castle.

                                                        4-hit combo is decently easy to parry. I usually go for the last hit in the combo since it's predictable and gives ya' time to get in on it before it's swung.

                                                                I managed to somehow kill one of the two in the Fringefolk Hero's Grave dungeon by shooting it off of the ceiling with a crossbow and it died from the fall damage. No idea how I did it or if I could ever recreate it again

                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                  It might work with other holy spells but greater heal is the only one I tried thus far.

If you're gonna fight one in melee like this than make sure you're also packing the Curverd Sword Talisman. Learned this from fighting the duo at Finger Hero's Grave

When second phase he will casting spell to his two sword, if you closer to him, you can hear he casting spell, which is pretty awesome detail IMO. I wonder why he named after grafted scion?

The first 2hits should miss as long as you move backwards. Dodge the second of the next 2 and keep moving backwards (+left or right to avoid getting cornered) and the next 2 will also miss. Moving backwards and left is optimal bit right works too. Of the final 2, again move backwards for the first but forward dodge the last and attack. 1 attack is safe but you can try a second one after getting used to it. Next up, his high jump and smash attack is easy to avoid by moving backwards and is a safe 1 to 2 attacks. You can punish the scream by dodging towards it during the final second of the attack. When it stands up and attacks the ground, wait for the second part of the attack, a heavy smash on the ground that can be punished somewhat safely (it can cancel out the final part of the recovery animation and attack but 1 attack is safe regardless). While in the buff move, it deals more damage and chips through shields but doesn't last long. When it stands up straight I always stay away cause both of its moves from there felt like oneshots so I didn't try taking advantage. In general, the Vagabond's 100% phys shield is very useful for this fight as long as you only count on it for the random attack that you failed to outspace via moving backwards and although it takes a bit, unless you mess up, this is an easy albeit a bit time consuming way to beat it. And the rewarded shield is perfect for shield users. The best place to face it is around the central ring of the arena (tutorial) since it helps you know how far away from the cliffs you are.
