Omenkiller is a Boss in Elden Ring. This Elden Ring Omenkiller Guide features boss locations, tips, strategies and videos on how to defeat Omenkillers easily, as well as boss stats and lore for the Omenkillers.

Omenkillers wield two serrated swords and may first be found at the Village of the Albinaurics, located in the Liurnia of the Lakes region. They can also be encountered later on within Altus Plains, as the boss of Perfumer's Grotto, and in Mt Gelmir's Volcano Manor. The first Omenkiller was Rollo, a perfumer whose spirit can be summoned for aid in battle by using Omenkiller Rollo Ashes. In ancient times, the horns of an Omen were praised as a sign of divinity, however in the age of the Erdtree, they are signs of impurity. Omenkillers are asigned the gruesome task of severing these horns, even those of Omen children. You may find their cleavers decorated with various Omen horns.

This is an optional boss as players don't have to defeat it to advance in Elden Ring. Omekillers hit quite hard, but are easily staggered. The main move to look out for is Twin Blade Leap where it jumps up and towards the player three times in succession and slams down with both swords after each one. This move may one-shot you if you're not prepared. Dogs may be found resting right outside the arena of some Omenkillers, so keep an eye out. Omenkillers drop the Crucible Knot Talisman, Great Omenkiller Cleaver, or Omenkiller Set when defeated.

Bosses are unique and challenging Enemies that can be encountered all over the Lands Between. Great Enemy bosses can drop unique Spirit AshesWeaponsSpells, and other various Items.

Omenkiller Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Omenkiller:

  • There are three dogs that can be cleared before the fight. First fall off the ramp side and aggro the dog near the house. After it dies, the second dog should aggro. The final dog is behind the tree to the left of the boss. Stand on the large root near the house and take it out with arrows.
  • Bring Stanching Boluses Item to account for Hemorrhage build up.
Melee Users

The most challenging part of the Omenkiller fight is the environment. Omenkiller does a double slam jump attack three times in a row, that will likelu one-shot light armor wearers, combo medium armor wearers in 2 hits, and instantly stagger all but the strongest shields. If you get caught on some of the junk lying around, you will die. So take some time to really look at the area. You will want to wear enough armor to survive at least one of his double slam jump attacks, while keeping in the medium load range.

Defensively, simply backing up is enough to avoid almost all of his attacks - as long as you don't get caught on the environment. The only one to watch out for is his jump attacks. You can back away from them, and the timing for rolls is not too difficult, but getting tagged by the first or second attack of the combo is usually death. The third attack in the combo has a deceptively long range as well, so be sure and have your shield up even if you think you won't get hit.

Omenkiller uses the fire defensively, so it's fairly easy to back away from. But you should try to push around the outside of the burning patch, because you don't want to get trapped from backing up, and being at mid range can trigger his jump attack.

Omenkiller has relatively low poise, use your strong attack and it should interrupt him. If your weapon's strong attack does not interrupt him, you should try a heavier weapon. Because of this, he is highly susceptible to guard counters, but it's recommended that you back out of the first swing and let the second hit your shield for the counter. Be sure and watch your Hemorrhage meter though, and equip some bleed preventative tools if it builds too fast for you to manage.

Magic and Ranged Users

Ranged is similar to melee. If you can equip a shield and weapon heavy enough to interrupt Omenkiller with a strong attack, you might find it easier to just fight him in melee. However, note that being near him is dangerous because his blade hits deal a lot of damage and may inflict Hemorrhage.  

Omenkiller Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Twin Blade Leap Leaps at its target up to three times, impacting the ground with both bladed Roll to either side every time the sword slams the ground, wait for the third slam, then go around and perform a backstab.
Uses its cleavers to swing, alternating from left to right. Roll away, or parry the attack, as it can be easily parried if timed correctly.
Fire Breath Spits fire from left to right. May also use this as a retreat. Move back, note that the ground will burn for a short period. 

Omenkiller Lore, Notes & Other Trivia

  • According to Omenkiller Rollo, they often used perfumes to null their senses, allowing them to kill without remorse or emotion.
  • A very obvious nod to the Capra Demon, which include many of the same attacks, along with canine companions.

          As most people have already said this is a spiritual successor to the capra demon, dual cleavers, horns (albiet on a helm instead of sprouting from head), and he's accompanied by 2 dogs

              Alternate strategy for the Omenkiller in Village of the Albinaurics: stand on the roof of the nearby shack and use ranged attacks. He can't it you and isn't smart enough to hide.

                Something interesting, if you go to Seluvis' puppet basement before killing Omenkiller at Village of the Albinaurics, the Omenkiller puppet's eyes are glowing orange. After killing Omenkiller in Village of the Albinaurics and returning, the puppets eyes are no longer glowing. What could this mean? Was this puppet body what was controlling the Omenkiller in the village, or that Seluvis sent the cursemongers who ransaked the place looking for the Secret Haligtree Medallion? It was Gideon who was seeking it from Latenna before, in any case it's interesting that the puppets eyes are lit like that if you go into that area kind of early and see it.

                  Ignore the "guide" - Mount up and pass him by with a light attack, will be an easy dodge of his attacks most of the time

                    If you orient your camera upwards, you can actually toss firebombs to kill the two dogs past the fog wall. Afterwards, go up the stairway and train him to follow. He will eventually fall, giving you a window for a plunging attack. Rinse and repeat. Be sure to open the gateway beyond the boss encounter, that will loop back to Firelink Shrine as a shortcut.

                      Idk if I was overleveled but I beat this guy first try with the skeleton ashes, Bastard's Stars, and Ice Breath. I didn't even notice the dogs down the hill until I killed him.

                        This boss is pathetic. Summon Wolves or any of the offensive fast Ash Spirit. Then climb up to one of the houses to the right of the area and barrage him with spells. He dies without even getting a hit.

                          It is true that the environtment is the greatest enemy here. Single bladed attacks are easily blocked and counterattacked, interrupting his combo, but like it is said in the article, one must avoid the double slam.

                            Somehow I did not realize that this guy was a boss. I just thought he was a strong enemy because I don't remember seeing a boss health bar while fighting him. I must have killed him though because I have the crucible knot in my inventory and Nepheli Loux's storyline continued. Has anyone else had this experience with him?

                                He wields two big cleaver like weapons, makes jump attacks and has 3 undead dogs to back him up. He's basically Capra Demon from DS1 lol

                                  Am i the only one who thinks this boss is a reference to the Kapra demon ? Double sword big guy surrounded with a few dogs in a 2 height level arena with trees ?

                                  • His damage is no joke, and his fire attacks are annoying. I killed him by killing the caster on the bridge and then drawing him out with a bow to avoid the hounds. He's easily parried, so I recommend throwing on your heaviest armor and best Parry shield. In particular, his fatal jumping slam is easily parried. Beware, every time he gets up he will do a 180 spin attack (I didn't attempt to parry it), and usually follows with a breath. Only took a couple deaths of trying to parry to kill him.

                                      In the village, there’s like a tiny ledge and if you make him jump down, his landing animation is quite long. You can use this time to get attacks him. Easily beatable by exploiting this.

                                            Reminds me a lot of the Capra Demon. The zombie dogs with him are the most dangerous part of fighting him.

                                                This should be taken off all the pages as it's absolutely poorly phrased and misleading. Whoever wrote these has a seriously tenuous grasp on the English language.

                                                  This enemy can be cheesed; further down there is a small house's roof that the player can jump on and where rhe player is safe from the Omenkiller's attacks (it's possible that his fire breath can hit you, but this should only tick away a tiny little bit of the player's overall health bar and can easily be replenished). Hit him one or twice after each combo, rinse and repeat.
