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 Omenkiller Boss Guide
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.
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.
|Swing||Swings one of its cleavers in various directions||Roll away or use the attack's telegraphed wind-up to parry it|
|Jumping Slam||Leaps forward and slams both blades to the ground||Roll to either side for each jump, and be careful not to get caught on the level geometry. It takes a long time to recover after the third jump, so use that opportunity to or land a few hits or get a backstab|
|Twirling Swing||Swings both cleavers clockwise as it turns 180°. Used when you're behind it||Roll to your right or parry the first cleaver|
|Fire Breath||Breathes fire that lingers on the ground for a short time||Move back and avoid the burning patch of ground. This is a good opportunity to use items or cast spells|
: Attack can be parried
