Revenant is a Humanoid Enemy in Elden Ring. The Revenant is a highly aggressive multi-legged creature that can travel between dimensional portals to quickly close the distance with its prey. They can frequently be found stalking ruins in the Liurnia region and are often accompanied by the Wraith Callers that worship them.

The Royal Revenant, a boss version of the Revenant can be found in the Kingsrealm Ruins

 

A grotesque amalgamation of limbs, the Revenant is a creature with the body structure of an arachnid and the face of a human. Much like a spider, it possesses many limbs that seem to have been grafted onto its body, taken from diseased humans. The Revenant is capable of traveling through portals it creates with a peculiar form of magic, swiftly emerging behind a foe to catch them off guard.

      yall need to start using healing spells in your kits, theres way too much complaining about this enemy when its like the easiest things to kill, sorcery arent the only spells in the game guys.

      • I'm on my 2nd play through, it was going good then I remembered these things exist! There's one at the bottom of the subterranean shunning ground, at the end of maze of pipes. In a dark water logged chamber, nightmare fuel. Without a heal spell, they end you fast, hope my mage can deal with them because my 1st melee character couldn't fight them.

          I am genuinely impressed that someone making a video game can come up with these. Nothing about this enemy is fun, not even remotely

            As much as I absolutely loathe these things, they really aren't even half as bad as people on this page are acting like they are. Runebears in late game with their 4 billion HP pools doing more than half your health per swing are far worse.

            The trick I've found to dealing with these guys is that you can nuke them for the entirety of the time they're first spawning out of their portals. As long as your build has reasonable damage, and you aren't in an area notably over your intended RL, you can usually kill them before, or right as they finish spawning, and if you haven't, they're typically so close to death that you won't really care.

            They also aren't that difficult to dodge, like, at all. Dodge TOWARDS them, not away from them. Their worst attack is that continual flurry, and if you dodge past them they can't turn it fast enough to continue hitting you with it so they're basically opened up to free damage. If you can't nuke them before they have a chance to start hitting you, then they're the epitome of requiring patience.

              Are they a massive pain? Yes. Yes they are. Does that sap away my joy from playing the game? No, no it does not. I actually have a love/hate thing for them. Maybe I'm just a masochist, but I like the massive challenge. The challenges aren't impossible.

              • I hate revenants, Why?
                Because they dont automatically apply madness and sleep the moment they see you and dont apply death blight for being in a 1 kilometer radius of him, smh myazaki fix the revenants

                  Was having trouble beating these shits on a pure strength build while 2 handing. Equipped a shield and they became easy. I’m convinced at this point they just aren’t beatable with a pure melee build without using a shield. They’re dumb

                    Easiest way to deal with these is to get a greatshield and counter attack them since the shield stops their constant attacks.

                      The first time I ever saw this 'thing' was at the Lunar Estate Ruins. The ruins/area looked mostly vacant, everything was pretty calm as I was exploring looking for the basement stairs for the treasure every ruins has. All of a sudden this THING appears that looks like a mini scion but still pretty big. I try to fight it since most of the enemies I had fought up until that time had been manageable... but my attacks were doing almost nothing and it's fast as hell. I'm like "screw this, I'm out of here" as I'm now almost dead and have a large amount of ruins on me that I don't want to lose.

                      I call/mount Torrent and start galloping across the field away from the ruins at full speed. This THING is teleporting behind me, like those dogs in Dark Souls 3, AND keeping up with Torrent at full speed! I was like WTF!? Even Torrent can't outrun this thing!! It had a very long distance before it 'leashed' and left me alone, but I was a long ways away from the Ruins before it finally did. I later found out it was called a Revenant. IMO, it's the hardest/scariest enemy in the game and I avoid it at almost all costs now. Screw that thing!

Cause they only fix broken **** that players can use, not **** that saps all fun out of the game that it possibly can

                                I have a question, the revenants taking a lot of damage from one of three heal incantations that have an AoE is a well known thing, but it's very rare for me to have any kind of heal incantation in a spell slot so I avoid them as much as possible but obviously I have been caught out.
                                I did know about the handful that spawn one a little further down the walkway than the last at Elpael brace of the Haligtree, I had 'lord's heal' ready and it shredded them. But afterwards I started to wonder if I had needed to use lord's heal in the first place and if either 'heal' or 'great heal' would have done the exact same thing to them for less FP.
                                Can anyone confirm if these incantations work the same way on revenants as they would if they were offensive where 'heal' does the least damage and 'lord's heal' the most?

                                  As a tip for beans fighting them in melee; doing everything you can to get behind them feels like the best strategy to me. They don't seem to have any attack they can actually do once you're there in the way some enemies/bosses do, so once you're back there they become far more predictable as they try to turn around. Fast rolling/quickstepping are good ways to achieve this, or just sprinting when you think you have an opening

                                      Tip: in Elphael, you can get them stuck at a tiny gap in the street. I can't really describe exactly where, but usually there are messages around alerting you to the opportunity. From there, just safely poke them or gun them down if you're a mage. Just stay as close so they just can't hit you to keep them aggroed. This will prevent their teleporting.

                                            I'll never forget the first Time i was making my way through Elphael.
                                            After careful exploring, i arrived in the alcove in front of the bridge where they snipe you from the right, while a Putrid Avatar and 2 strong knights with buffs are ready to bully you.
                                            After a couple of unsuccesful attemps to get there from the front, i saw a stair in front of me, but It required to jump down while sticking to the wall, in order to avoid death from fall damage.
                                            So, i get down, and i summoned the Mimic Tear because i sensed something was not right.
                                            Then, i get to the stair, i start climbing, but i hear some strange noises.
                                            I turn the camera, and FOR THE LOVE OF GOD I SEE MY COPY FIGHTING 3 OF THESE SONS OF B****ES.
                                            I frantically go up, only to be greeted by a slam dunk by the Avatar that aggroes the other two enemies.
                                            I quickly realized i had no chance to come out off this situation alive, so i started to run in search of the next site of grace.
                                            Luckily, it was just around the corner, but as soon as i activated it i was horrified to see not only the three dangerous foes i left behind me, but also ONE OF THESE TELEPORTING NIGHTMARES.
                                            I don't know how he got up there, but it scared the sh*t out of me.

                                              Strange that Elden Ring does not include a scarlet rot variant of this enemy. Hopefully the DLC can correct that oversight.

                                                So far from my experience, these ****ers only teleport towards you when both of you are in an even ground. For example:

                                                During my exploration of the Shaded Castle, when I was in the upper level where there was a wandering Cleanrot Knight I saw a Revenant below in the poison-filled courtyard, so I decided to snipe it with spells. I climbed up the walls by jumping on the barrels nearby (while trying not to destroy them instantly with my character). There I started barraging the Revenant with Loretta's Greatbow.

                                                Initially, the Revenant was aggroed, but it wasn't able to teleport towards my position. It didn't do the acid spit too, instead it just stood there looking at me, so I kept barraging it with LGB until it died. I was confused and happy at the same time.

                                                Then there came the time where I legitimately fought the Revenant without gimmicks. You know how that turned out. But that's when I noticed that they only teleport when both you and the revenant are in the same ground level.

                                                I could be wrong but this was my observation so far.

                                                  1 they are not the only enemy in the game harmed by healing, any cursed enemy is
                                                  2: Frok have stealth altered these guys recently, initially casting Heal would stun them long enough for 2 casts, now they recover & will dodge a 2nd cast

                                                  Tested this in my first character, a fait build with 30 dex & my 3rd character, an int build with 40 dex, both had Radagon's talisman equipped & both times the revenant recovered before the 2nd cast

                                                    Melenia was easier for me to fight than these abominations. Cost me 300k runes in the Haligtree! because they decided to teleport behind me when I thought I cleared all of them.

                                                    You know all those mods that just change every enemy in the game with the endgame boss and whatnot? I bet someone will make a mod like that that changes every enemy in the game with these shitstains! Including the flying mosquitoes!

                                                    And that person will have a special place in hell waiting for them!

                                                                        • Anonymous

Tried (nearly) everything and kept getting two-shotted/combine harvester mashed. Then I tried two AoE heals, just the standard "Heal" and it killed it.

                                                                                    I have the PS4 version of the game and the trio of these actually caused my game to lag from the sheer number of things moving on screen at a time. Yeah, I died.
                                                                                    I then tried it on my PC (I like mods, and the co-op one is top) and it outright crashed the game straight back to windows and even did something to my graphics card that forced me to reboot my PC entirely before ANYTHING would accept I even had a graphics card (RTX A4000, so yeah, its not some old junker). Went back, and it did it AGAIN. Took four tries until I finally didn't have their spazzing out, endless attack, cause a crash or something, and I finally managed to use a Lord's Heal to OHKO the bunch.

                                                                                    Oh yeah, and they're simply not even fun to deal with either. Mid-level or better Heal spells one-shotting them or not. If its just one of these POS mobs, then its not too bad. When its the gang of them? Screw that, your camera goes mad just trying to track them as they're all over the place. The poison spray doesn't help either.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                                      • Anonymous

Perhaps they got killed, and it was attempted to revive them using incantations, but it went wrong and they became these twisted monstrosities which could also be why they are weak to healing incantations.

                                                                                        • I genuinely from the bottom of my heart hope whoever created this enemy type never has a good night's sleep for the rest of their natural life. They're not challenging or fun to fight at all, they're an annoying hassle and nothing more. I don't learn anything from fighting them or even feel a sense of accomplishment when I kill them.

                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                              And I still have NO idea how to properly kill these on a low vit build without a shield and without overleveling.

                                                                                              • Anonymous

Drop its poise by half and lower the damage by at least 40%. Before someone comes at me with git gud I have beaten these guys plenty of times, but the fight is nor worth the runes rewarded. I basically avoid them everytime they pop up. In a game about overcoming enemies and having fun while doing so if a player avoids an enemy then you have failed as a developer to design said enemy.

Constantly try to run behind them. Their poison attack is the biggest opening to do this. Being in front of them is basically a staggering death sentence. Also try to take advantage of them when they first appear from the ground. Can get at least half their health down before the fight even starts, if your damage is good. Have fun (or not).

Once they're out and about, it becomes pure RNG whether they let you get in any damage inflicted on them at all and that RNG is *very* much stacked against you.
