Royal Revenant is a Boss in Elden Ring. Royal Revenant is a grotesque amalgamation of humanoid and arachnid, with its many grafted limbs. The Revenant is extremely aggressive and quick, utilizing its poison attacks to weaken prey. It is extremely weak to the Heal spell, despite the spell having no offensive properties. Royal Revenant can be found in the Kingsrealm Ruins and other locations. This is an optional boss, as players don't need to defeat it in order to advance in Elden Ring. However, doing so yields useful Items and Runes.

 

 An obscene and disturbing abomination, blend of a spider-like creature and human limbs resulting in a quite resourceful fighter at close range.

Royal Revenant Combat Information

  • Health: NG (??), NG+ (??), NG++ (??), NG+3 (??), NG+4 (??), NG+5 (??), NG+6 (??), NG+7 (??)
  • Defenses do not change between phases - a firebomb will do the same damage in phase 1 as in phase 2.
  • Deals Standard Damage. May also inflict Poison.
  • The area of effect from HealGreat HealLord's Heal, and Erdtree Heal damages Revenants, including this boss, for 50% of their max HP + 300 HP. In addition, the area of effect from Blessing's Boon and Blessing of the Erdtree damages them for 3% + 10 HP per second for 30 seconds. The area of effect of these healing incantations also deal significant Poise damage.
  • Parriable: No
  • Can be poise broken, which allows for a critical attack.

 

Negations (or Absorptions)

The absorption numbers are the % of your damage that gets blocked. For example, if an absorption is 60, 40% of that damage by that type will go through and 60% is absorbed. Bigger number = less damage. An absorption of 100 means no damage goes through, and a resistance of -100 mean the enemy takes 2x damage from that source. 0 means damage goes pretty much as is.

Resistances

The resistance numbers are the buildup amount to trigger it. For example, if a resistance is 100 you must deal 100 points of whatever aux buildup to trigger it. Note that these go down over time, and increase each time the effect procs.

Royal Revenant Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Royal Revenant:

  • Using Heal within range of the Royal Revenant will deal massive damage to it, as well as break its stance, allowing for an easy follow-up heal to kill it.
  • With the help of Godrick's Great Rune (+5 all stats) and the Two Fingers Heirloom (+5 Faith), any starting class is capable of using this strategy.
  • Bring a Shield if fighting melee. Barricade Shield is recommended to prevent stamina depletion 
  • Neutralizing Boluses can alleviate poison buildup
  • Lone Wolf Ashes or any other summon is recommended for ranged combat to put some separation between enemy and player.

 

Melee Users

It is not recommended to fight this enemy melee (see above/below). If you must, use your hardest hitting weapon and attempt to break its stance with jumping attacks or guard counters. Be aware of the arena too since he can be encountered in a tight space. With that in mind, the best strategy is to spend the encounter trying to circle around the enemy to get out its line of sight since most attacks are projected forward. Ideally, have a shield with you to counter its aggressive attack combos. If it disappears in to the floor, back up and get a better view of the whole arena, but remain in a space open enough where you can dodge for when it reappears and spews its poison attack. Continue to dodge to its side while blocking and attacking to eventually deplete its health. 

Magic and Ranged Users

Cast the Heal spell within the vicinity of this enemy in order to deal massive damage and break its stance, allowing for one to easily follow up with another Heal to finish it off. Ideally have a summon to help distract the enemy allowing you to also bring some separation between you and the revenant in this small arena. Much like melee in this tight space, since most attacks are dealt forward, keep circling to the side to remain out of its line of sight and avoid its attack. Roll to the side as much as possible while following up with an attack.

 

Royal Revenant Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
 Slam The revenant brings its front hands up before coming down for a ground slam.  This attack can be parried and is easily noticed from the starting animation. There is a brief pause as it lifts its body just before coming down for a slam, giving the player enough time to roll away and get out of the damage range. 
Lunge This enemy quickly lunges at players from a distances. It can use one or both of its from arms for this attack, charging forward. This attack can occur in a combo. Block this attack if plausible or side step away from this direction he faces. Due to the small arena, attempt to always be moving to the side in order to gain a better position to attack and avoid receiving damage form lunges. 
Teleport (Poison) This action is usually accompanied by a poison inflicting attack upon appearing. This enemy momentarily can disappear and reposition then respawn while immediately spewing poison forward.  Keep an eye out of the arena. This action doesn't usually take long so if you don't see it appear, odds are it could've appeared behind you. Locate it and immediate dodge to the side to anticipate its attack. 
Aggro Scratching  For this action the enemy runs at the player while aggressively clawing repeatedly. This action may end with another attack to end the combo.  A shield is recommended if players choose to fight in melee. Block these attacks while backing up.

    • I think those are Descendants of Carian royals. Thats pretty much the only Royal Family we have and theyre in Liurnia. For the ones in the Haligtree...i think the Haligtree works as a refuge for everything cursed and unwanted.

      Even so, i want their crowns.

      • Two things: This Enemy doesnt seem to be grafted, but their limbs look more Natural as If theyve grown them on their own. Godrick and the Scions' limbs are all wildly grafted together, while the bellringer and revenants have an order to them.

        Healing doesnt affect their poise, its a mechanic that goes around poise. It breaks their stance but that has nothing to do with poise.

          i wish i knew about the heal weakness the first time i fought one of these bastards. the thing killed me at least twenty times before i brought it down.

          • After fighting at least 50 of these dudes while rune farming in Elphael (don't ask me why), I gotta say, they don't suck as bad as I thought, but they still suck HARD lol.

            I found that they have two types of teleports: The one where they vanish instantly and the one where they go through the ground. When they vanish, they will often reappear and lunge out at you, so every time I see them do that attack, I would instantly roll to the side. When they go through the ground, they'll often follow up with their poison spit attack behind you. You can also cast Heal next to them which really decimates their health with an optimized build.

            I still hate them because their slam attack can true combo into another attack, and the flurry attack deals way too much damage, even with 60 vigor and high defenses (though it's also the fault of the game spiking in difficulty in the latter third). Also why does the poison spit trail deal damage when you stand in it. The poison build-up is fine as it is I guess, but then they decided that it should inflict damage too.

              I hate this absolute c**t of a boss and the lesser mob type more than any other boss or enemy in the game. I cheese or kill them at range if I cant avoid them ever since my first taste of getting poisoned then stun locked and slapped to death trying to get the frozen needle from kingsrealm ruins early in my playthrough. Two of them just spawned at the lunar estate ruins towards the end of Ranni's quest, they were the lesser type but from their crowns both were royal revenants. I saw something interesting I've never thought to try against them before and it worked very well on both, it might be useful for the late game revenants at brace of the haligtree.

              One of them spawns near the imp statue door for the cerulean amber medallion +2 and it's the more awkward of the two because of the wraith callers that spawn in the ruins. It was worth sneaking around to make them spawn and kill them so they couldn't interfere with killing the revenant, the second spawns in the same ruins but a good distance further east, that one is alone. Everything about this boss is always holy damage, how heal or great heal wrecks those encountered earliest, but with faithful's canvas talisman, two fingers heirloom and ritual sword talisman equipped and with golden vow cast before I got too close to it a full charged cast of WoG did just over eight hundred damage and didn't make a significant difference to its target locked health bar.

              When I had lost agro and I was close enough behind it, with the same talismans and golden vow cast again I hit it with ekzyke's decay, I can cast it fully charged three times with a full FP bar but I hit it with two full charged casts before using the spectral whistle for a quick getaway on torrent. Those two casts of ekzyke's decay shredded both revenants very quickly, it was much more effective than hit and run tactics with golden arrows, holy water pots or WoG.

                Killed him on my 3rd try. Don't have heal so I used Rock Sling while Banished Knight Engval face tanked him. Wasn't pretty but it worked

                  Using the skill on the Blasphemous Blade or Magma Blade (leveled up) can wreck these things in 2 hits, especially on dexterity builds.

                      this one goes on the "**** the reworked stancebreaking system" list of bullshit enemies, right next to the fallingstar beast and the magma wyrms.

                        I'm in sainted hero's grave casting poison mist at the p**ck from around the corner where it spawns. I've just had a close look at it while waiting for it to f**k off and die, does anyone know anything about the lore for these things? This one wears a crown so I assume its a royal revenant, but it has some similarities to the grafted scion and godrick the grafted. Is there any connection?

                            • For the record all Revenants including this boss version can be killed with two shots of any AoE healing Incantion. It doesn't matter which one or what level Faith or Incant scaling you have it does the same damage.

                                The devs should've given their attacks bleed build up while they were at it. Perhaps the dlc will fix this, and you get to fight them while knee deep in scarlet rot water.

                                  I get the feeling that when they were designing this enemy, they tried to do something like Malenia, only instead of trying to make the hardest boss in their series, they were trying to create the most annoying enemy, and they succeeded with utter repugnance.

                                        I'd really appreciate it if anyone who hasn't been to kingsrealm ruins at Liurnia yet, but plan on getting the frozen needle, would do a test? and try using a heal incantation that has an AoE on the royal revenant that has to be killed before you can get the sword? I don't know about the revenants at the shaded castle because I killed them with frenzied burst, I didn't go anywhere near them, But I'm 100% certain the revenant at kingsrealm ruins took zero damage from me casting a heal incantation, it wasn't too far away it was practically right on top of me when it was cast, and before anyone suggests it, I wasn't knocked out of the animation before I could finish casting. I'm curious to see what the results will be. One comment here confirms what I am saying about this particular revenant, but it seems that is not enough to convince some players. If the royal revenant at kingsrealm ruins does not in fact take any damage from a heal incantation cast near it, like I say it doesn't, then I think it should be mentioned on this page as being different.

                                          I think making them vulnerable to stance break could balance them quite a bit. You won't get a lot of openings, but when you do get one you can hit real hard.

                                            this is hands down (lmao) the worst designed enemy in the entire game, and is a perfect example of one of the biggest problems with Elden Rings boss design. Too aggressive with not nearly enough windows to react. Just use healing incantations to nuke it if you can, it's not worth fighting if you are able to cheese it.

                                              If using just melee, the only weakness to this thing appears to be is knowing where it spawns and spamming huge damage weapon arts or charged attacks. The goal is basically to kill it before it can move, because if it does, it will keep you on the defensive for a long time. If you're unlucky and one is already spawned (ehemm Haligtree) you're already in trouble lol

                                                      Landing just a single cast of the "Heal" INCANTATION, from distance, not only netted 1,924 dmg (75% BOSS HP), but it also staggers the boss.

                                                      Now, I'm playing a hybrid faith build, but I have to assume even low faith builds will net around 1,000 HP...?

                                                      All that said... This boss is tough AF without it, and the reward is likely not worth it to 85% of players.

                                                        Steps to kill this creature:

                                                        1) Look up how to kill it or suffer for several hours bashing your head against it until you stumble into success;
                                                        2) Surrender your non faith build to have points in faith, or find enough items to give you the required faith amount;
                                                        3) Two shot the monster with healing spells or play super slow with a greatshield/barricade shield;
                                                        4) ???
                                                        5) Go to the comments to claim it's a perfectly fine monster and totally a good addition to the franchise.

                                                        I'd rather fight the Nameless King while naked, THAT is what a fun challenging fight is. This isn't.
                                                        And two shotting/turtling is not fun either. Even more when the "two shotting" part is a very hidden piece of information that most players are unlikely to come across unless they look it up.

                                                          It has been shown in a recent video that it's not grafted per se. The robe was removed and showed the body has only one pair of legs. It's body is a couple of torsos connected and each torso has 1 or 2 arms that are coming out of where they normally would on the torso. Make me wonder the origin because this suggests they are more likely a mutation of something rather that something that a bunch of arm were haphazardly grafted to.

Not sure what they saw in this guy.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

You wouldn't think do to their size and aggression, but they will bounce and be open to guard counters. More FP efficient than heal and allows pure physical builds a way to deal with them.

                                                                          • Anonymous

FS loves enemies that lunge forwards while attacking to catch people rolling away. this guy is that concept x10. runebears too, except u dodge under them and not to the side. revenants become regular enemies later on, so i didn't encounter one until the Haligtree. that was a rude awakening lmao but once you learn the trick they're not so bad, just really intimidating

                                                                            • Anonymous

That was massive surprise. I hate fighting these things without a summon and at melee range.

                                                                              Another at the lower level in the Sellia

                                                                                I'm doing a sl1 run and I wanted the freezing needle, so I faced this ***** early. Yes it's kinda bullshit but it's doable with the right setup. My first 3 hours of trying were: poison him, switch to 2 hand shield and wait. wait. wait. wait again for the crazy scratch attack, roll it and use the window to poison him again. This was too slow and risky. The problem is that he sometimes starts the scratch attack outta nowhere, as a followup to other moves, without the telegraphed animation. this is the real killer imho. with all the waiting needed it was almost impossible for him not to do this at least once.

                                                                                I changed setup: regular shield with shield barricade, poison lance, freezing lance (all +3 max). When blocking an attack with shield barricade he recoils and gets staggered for a brief moment, which gives you the time to attack (with shield raised) and inflict statuses. I did it at like 3rd try with this setup. I still needed the rng for him not to do the scratch attack followup combo, but with the fight during much less it rarely happens. Btw when he does the telegraphed animation before the scratch attack, just roll forward and left/righ twice, then, if it's indeed a scratch attack run towards and behind him, this is the biggest window he gives. For other windows just watch his legs: when he finishes a combo and one of his legs is reeeeally stetched, that's a window.

                                                                                Bullshit enemy but I had fun
                                                                                Of course I know about heal, but I couldnt cast any of that at the time, and I don't know if it's even possible to reach like 24 faith at sl1. BUT if I had warming stones which I didn't, I'd have tried. Has anyone tested if warming stones work?

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  • Anonymous

Lion's Claw in general is really useful against enemies that are usually difficult to find an opening on.

Used my +5 banished knight Engall, shield, and the heal AoE spell. He tanked it and his hits actually took the boss's health down about 8% even before I looked, I did the heal and nothing happened, suddenly the boss was down to 6% total health instantly then dead. Fight took all of 15 seconds, happened so fast I was amazed. The heal AoE and summon method work great for this boss.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

As it is, I can barely see a difference between using Sacred weapons or Holy Pots vs just thwacking them with a normal weapon.

                                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                                              Still a terribly designed enemy.

                                                                                                      Didn't expect much when I first entered the Kingsrealm Ruins, but this guy absolutely wiped the floor with me at least 5 times in a row. I managed to kill it eventually without heal spell or summons by using a brass shield with a spear, but it still was a struggle.

                                                                                                      I don't recommend attacking him during his regular attacks as they are very unpredictable, but you can mostly block them without taking too much stamina damage if you mix in a couple dodges here and there.
                                                                                                      You need to watch out for his frenzy attack, as it will destroy you if you try dodging backwards or blocking it without a greatshield.
                                                                                                      He will always telegraph the attack by rearing up for a second though. Dodging into his right side when he does that will make him charge past you and he cannot turn around quickly during it's animation.
                                                                                                      This gives you an opening to rush after him and get 1-2 hits in.
                                                                                                      The poison attack also gives you a small opening for a single hit if you are close enough after his teleport. Make sure to always dodge sideways when he's about to spit.
                                                                                                      Try to keep punishing these two moves until he is dead.

                                                                                                      Overall not as bad as people make him out to be, but definitely a very hard fight for an optional boss.
                                                                                                      Just thinking about beating this guy without a shield gives me PTSD though...
