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.
- Poison: 227 / 269 / 367 / 657
- Scarlet Rot: 227 / 269 / 367 / 657
- Hemorrhage: 227 / 269 / 367 / 657
- Frostbite: 227 / 269 / 367 / 657
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.

A testament to how FromSoft has pushed boss difficulty beyond human limits. First, we had Soldier of Godrick, then Tibia Mariner. They also had to give us Scaly Misbegotten? So innovative.
The wiki's picture for him looks like one of those old Bigfoot sightings lmao
why is this a mini boss? why not like a stonedigger troll or crystallian? this just confuses me.
You're looking at the 2022 valedictorian of Margit's institute for obnoxiously delayed attacks
Why is the standard enemy version in the haligtree way the actual **** stronger than the leonine? Like that makes no sense what the **** so ever, you fight a leonine one of these and wreck its ****ing day, walk 2 steps further into the haligtree and come across 2 of these ****ers that are basically tankier than the ****ing valiant gargoyle duo? They wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy the **** overtuned the defenses on these things in haligtree, and yet every single other one in the game is a ****ing joke
This dude must be Margit's grandpa with how much goddamn ridiculous delays he does before actually swinging.
His attack delays are so comically slow that it isn't even annoying, since you can easily just wail on him before he even gets a chance to swing, you could proly land a fully charged colossal weapon heavy attack on him before he actually swings its that slow.
Could've at least switched his axe with the rusted anchor, bruh
One of the hardest bosses in the entire game
Their delayed swings are annoying. It's like their attacks were specifically designed to screw up your parry timing. It's easier to just R1 them to death, which is silly.
But what if there were two?
Guys I think I found the guy that could defeat soldier of godrick
Kill him with 30 darts. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
And the reward to the most unrealistic attack delays goes to...
Of all the bosses in elden ring, this is certainly one of them.
His attacks are so delayed that I have time to go take a dump and come back between them
How the hell is this a boss, it would lose against the rest of mobs in the mine.
I one shot this guy lol
Brah weak as
Best place to farm Arc Runes. Please keep summoning me!
It is weak to magic, but seriously, this thing is weak to a stiff breeze lol
There are harder Bosses in Elden Ring than this one!
