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.

      Fighting these ****ers 1on1 feels like you're a geriatric trying to go up against a bloodborne boss on crack.

        Trash enemy with poor mechanics. The developers gave players a reason to cheat when the game cheats. Now it makes sense why hacks are used. The bullsh*t in this game is real..

          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.

                2 things:
                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!

                              I was calmly exploring the Liurina region when I heard that god-awful otherworldly shriek and saw one of these climb out of the ground. I though it must be one of those faithcaster guys and then I noticed it's horribly misshapen face... took a few steps back and the thing literally emerged from underground and darted at me with lightspeed.
                              I unstantly called for the horse and ran like 3 miles backwards. It's been a long time since I saw something in a game that horrified me that much as these creatures.

                                This enemy represent everything I don’t like about elden ring. Use godrick’s rune if you don’t have any faith and put on heal. This enemy should not exist.

                                  This enemy doesn't deserve an honorable fight. Don't waste your time actuallt trying to fight them and just heal them to death. If your foe cheeses you with BS, cheese them back.

                                        STR/FTH Golden Halberd type - I had a terrible time with the one down in the sewers. 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.

                                                      I have a theory, what if those are members of the Golden Lineage? 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.

                                                              It is not worth the runes and it's poise is too ****in high for the shambling makeshift creation it is. 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.

                                                                  • Anonymous

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).

                                                                    • Anonymous

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.

I do wanna try other holy types to see how that plays out. I wish i would have found out on my own instead of vaati but im sure there are tons of other stuff to uncover.

                                                                              the few times I kill them legitimately is when RNG teleports them in front. when they teleport behind and you don't find them in time, game over.

Use the Greatshield Soldier Ashes to keep them busy. Then use heal on them. It turns them into a cake walk. The soldiers are almost always guarding and take little damage and will swarm him and keep him busy while you can get a heal off. Then usually they are stunned and u can get another heal off.

                                                                                    Worst enemies in the entire game. Jumps too much and staggers a lot

                                                                                      I was doing some testing on this. It doesn't seem to matter which heal you use (as long as it has an AOE). Heal, Lord's Heal and Erdtree Heal all did exactly the same amount of damage. I don't think it's dependent on your spell buff or anything else either.

                                                                                      If you stagger them with a heal, the best thing to do is to do another heal. The riposte window is extremely short and you're more likely to get punished trying.

                                                                                      Even going back after finishing the game to test on ones in Laskyar Ruins is miserable / rage inducing.

What kind of strategy are you supposed to use for something so extremely aggressive!? It literally never stops attacking. Poison, combos, TELEPORTATION!? I have found that the AoW Lions Claw seems to be effective when used on something with high poise break...if you can land it on this bloody thing before it tears you to pieces. RoB seems effective, too.

                                                                                        Also, who has time to use a healing spell when this thing is on the loose? They take a million years to cast.

                                                                                        I groan with dread every time one appears.

It never stops attacking, has combos that can one-shot you even at a high level from full health with absolutely NO possibility to dodge roll it, spews that poison that rapidly damages you while you're standing in it, and it TELEPORTS. Nobody could have playtested this thing.

                                                                                              Every single time one shows up I just get mad. This thing is not fun. Nerf it or remove it from the game.
