Elden Ring Mad Pumpkin Head Ashes Guide

  • His summon cost is rather high.
  • His flail strikes deal bleed damage.
  • His large head is extremely resistant to all forms of damage, a trait shared with the enemy he is modeled after.
  • He will temporarily freak out if anything nearby (including himself) is inflicted with Blood Loss. This involves him smashing his head around aimlessly for a time, then looking toward the sky contemplatively for a few seconds before returning to their normal state. This tantrum is not triggered by the Blood Loss caused by the Ash of War Seppuku. The head slamming he does during this tantrum period cannot damage the player, but it can cause the player to stagger if they are struck.
  • It appears that, currently, bug enemies that are nearby do not have any noteworthy effect on this spirit, despite the description of his spirit ashes. Which would be ironic if this was caused by a bug itself.

      Spartacus got PTSD so bad he got kicked out the colosseum, had an ornate helmet placed on his head to hide his identity, and got sent to guard Saintsbridge, where he can go nuts and do no harm. Dark Souls stories rarely have happy endings.

        I think this one is a bit of a novelty spirit ash. I summoned it where I've been trying out all my spirit summons recently, the enemies there hit hard, so far this mad pumpkin head has been the worst. I don't think he lasted much more than 10 seconds. I'm not wasting glovewart on him in the hope he is better if he is upgraded.

          If he is not wandering around aimlessly, he smashes his head all over the place. Not totally useful, but he just does His thing and thats cool.

            I noticed he can't buffed by any means whether incantations or weapon skills, while other spirits can be buffed.

              I wanna love this man, and I do love this man, but gosh darn it man! Stop smacking your head on the ground and start smacking your head on the enemy!

                This dude at +10 tanked the hell out of the final boss, both phases, and helped me clinch the battle when no other ashes or summoned players could take me to the end. He still had like 25% HP left. Don't sleep on this dude, he's a massive damage sponge.

                  I noticed that I can't use blessings Boon with him. I usually summon a spirit then make them have health regen. It worked with everyone except him anyone know why?

                    He served me really well when I was focusing on spellcasting. His damage output is low, but he is a beast of a tank.

                    He's also incredibly slow, so fights against any boss that's quick require kiting them to him so he can grab aggro off of you.

                    My only significant complaint is that there are some bosses his AI just craps out on. Dragons were some of the worst because he'd get stuck on wings and would only attack if he could get to their feet - and by the time he does that, they just fly away from him. Sif was also bad since he darts around the arena constantly. Easy problem to solve, though - just keep a second Ash handy for faster bosses.

                      While I appreciate the boss design and the atmosphere, 95% of this fight was spent just trying to get in range to attack. Wasn't hard, just an extremely tedious waste of time.

                        Pretty expensive FP-wise but a solid tank Ash if you're playing something like a squishy spellcaster with the FP to spare. As long as he's not fighting something nimble to bite his buttocks his helmet will let him tank A LOT of damage from the front.

                          Not 100% sure since it's hard to test, but he started slamming his head on the ground (which DID affect me, no damage just the knockback) after he walked face first into a Swarm of Flies I cast at an enemy. Not sure if that really does freak him out like the flavor text implies, but if so that's kinda cool

                            For Bosses, this one is utterly useless against anything that hits hard and/or wide. He gets easily stunned by high numbers of critters (fall on his knew). While he deals decent damage per strike, the time it takes him to strike a boss usually ends up with costing him 1/3 of his life by then unless ranked up to the max available at that moment which... makes it maybe 1/4 instead of 1/3. He's good against caster-type bosses, but bad against combo-elites or giant bosses.

                              My word golly gosh he sucks. Real riveting trying to fight the boss while he throws a tantrum that does ****-all but send you flying.

                                Someone with a bleed build might want to test if the flavor text means bleed procs gives him a buff or changes his behavior in some way.
