Spiritcaller Snail is a Boss in Elden Ring. Spiritcaller Snail is found in Road's End Catacombs and then again at the Spiritcaller's Cave. 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.

The normal enemy version is Lesser Spirit-Caller Snail. Other snail enemies are Serpent Snail, Crystal Snail, Skeletal Snail, and Lesser Spirit-Caller Snail.

 

 A strange snail-like creature that gives off a pale glow. While weak on their own, they summon forth spirits from beyond to fight on their behalf. But once the snail dies, the spirit will vanish.

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.

 Spiritcaller Snail Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Spiritcaller Snail:

  • Focus on the snail and ignore its summons
  • When the snail is invisible, look for a faint glow on the ground and attack it

Escargot: Don't bother fighting the Crucible Knight. It'll just get resummoned if it dies, and it'll vanish as soon as you kill the snail anyway. Instead, focus on finding and killing the snail. It will begin the fight in the far right corner of the room, but once you start hitting it it will teleport away. Dodge the Crucible Knight or distract it with summons as you look for a glowing spot, usually in the corners of the room. Once you see it, attack it. The snail doesn't have a lot of health, so it should die quickly once you track it down a few times.

Attack Description Counter

      I killed the Crucible Knight 7 times just to see how many time the snail can call him back.
      Then I ran out of chugs and died.

        When I fought my first one I almost died to the knight then I killed him thinking that would end that wouldn't you imagine my surprise when he came back to life

          Very cheeky little boss, they should make more of this instead of the boring watchdog(cat?). Funny fight after knowing that the boss hp doesnt goes down after hitting the summon.

            The snail in road's end catacombs isn't lit up like a christmas tree the light that gives away its position is just a little brighter than the floor around it. But using a spirit summons to keep the crucible knight occupied while you look for the snail is definitely the way to go.

              It would've been funny if the Godskin's second phase theme played when the snail appeared, just as a joke

                Someone should change the summon order for road's end catacombs. I have killed over 30 crucible knights there as a parry practice and it seems that the summoning is infinite.

                      No magic light. Just look for a slightly brighter area that looks lit up an over head light and throw mist on it and keep moving. 9/10 its the snail. It’s not just the corners- more like along the walls.
                      Just do laps around the summon.

                            The numbers provided are completely false as of today for the Road Ends Catacombs, his number of summons are limitless :
                            Silura when above 75% HP.
                            Ordovis when between 50% and 75% HP.
                            Both when under 50% HP.

                            You can test for yourself never damaging him and you can beat a thousand Siluras without a single change.

                              I just had roads end bossroom glitch on me. The first spirit summoned by the snail did a flying attack and went through the floor. Snail never summoned anyone else, I just walked around until I found him and kept swinging. He never tried to attack me or summon.

                                        Just realized these guys might not actually be snails, they have snake heads for some reason. Wonder if that's significant, considering snakes seem to symbolize sin and treachery in the Lands Between.

                                              The one in Road's End spawns spirts in this order:
                                              Crucible Knight Silura 2x
                                              Crucible Knight Ordovis 2x
                                              Both 3x
                                              After the 3rd summon of both knights it stops summoning and just stays invisible.

                                                The lore in my playthru worked out well, the snail was secretly following me around and summoning godskin duo (and all other repeat bosses) the entire time until I finally tracked it down in its home!

                                                  basically like the witches from bloodborne sep they dont bamboozle yah with second one and the snails summon is actually dangerous

                                                    the current drops for Spiritcaller Cave version are the drops for the actual Godskin Duo fight that is required(?) to progress Crumbling Farum Azula, I believe the snail drops 70k souls or thereabout

                                                      The snail in the spirit caller's cavern does not drop Smithing-Stone Miner's Bell Bearing [4]. It drops Godskin Swaddling Cloth (Successive attacks restore HP.)

                                                        I just thought the knight's name was "Spirit-Caller Snail" BUT NO it's literally a spirit calling SNAIL!!!

                                                          Lol I didn't think I could hit the snail while it was invisible. I won the fight by killing the Crucible Knights and only hitting the snail in between summons.

                                                            Skeletal Bandit Ashes Summon is OP for this fight. The Snail’s summon gets distracted and the skeleton revives after death. The boss summon doesn’t appear to use its special moves if it’s on high hp, so avoid damaging it. Snail is invisible but casts a white glow on the ground.

                                                              You don’t need to fight the boss just look for the glow of the snail. It starts in the back right corner and then moves after you do enough damage to it

                                                                The fight has a bug, when I tried to attack the snail with a sleep inducing weapon, if the snail teleports with the sleep debuff the game would simply crash.

                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                  On PC(and possibly console can't test), if you fight this boss with St Trina's Sword, or possibly any item that inflects sleep your game will crash when the snail teleports.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    If you kill the knight the slug simply summons a new one. I was really hoping there'd be multiple summons.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      Be wary when kiting the summoned knight around as it the lunge attack seems to have a short blink which means his reach is way more than you think, not sure if that's intentional or not tho. Using summoning ashes of mulitple allied is helpful to distract it, ie wolves, etc..

                                                                      • Anonymous
