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.
The resistance numbers are the buildup amount to trigger it. For example, if a resistance is 100 you must deal 100 points of the given buildup to trigger it. Note that these go down over time, and increase each time the effect procs. The values after the "/"s indicate the increased resistances after each successive proc.

Elden Ring Kindred of Rot Boss Guide
Kindred of Rot Fight Strategy
The Best Tips for Kindred of Rot:
- Use the Lone Wolves Ashes Ash Summons
- Use the Swift Glintstone Shard spell to stagger them and stops them from using their thread attack
Keep your positioning to the side of them and focus on one at a time while rolling through any pest thread attacks. If you want a quick fight, use spirit summons to clear one while you clear the other. If you have a shield, you can guard counter them and it will stun them giving you more opportunities to deliver hits. Be patient and wait for an opening before coming down at them with by spamming your melee attacks, giving you an opportunity to interrupt their following attacks until they are cleared. Anticipate their next action and roll back if it follows through. Repeat the pattern of waiting for an opening until they are cleared.
Magic and Ranged Users
Either Holy Damage or Faith Builds work when going against them. They tend to take long pauses before each action. Mages have the option to use Swift Glintstone Shard, which may interrupt their next action. If significant damage was taken, roll back and create a larger separation before healing. If this is difficult, and you are willing, use spirit summons to help you since there are two of them and may be hard to separate. Keeping your distance will give you more openings and will eventually lead to their defeat.
