Stonedigger Troll is a Boss in Elden Ring. This Elden Ring Stonedigger Troll Guide features boss locations, tips, strategies and videos on how to defeat Stonedigger Trolls easily, as well as boss stats and lore for the Stonedigger Trolls.

Trolls are tall humanoid creatures with a distinctive hole in their chests. They are descendants of the Giants, who were mortal enemies of the Erdtree, yet in the War against the Giants, they fought for the Golden Order against their brethren. Some trolls are also loyal to the Carian royal family - these Troll knights can be found carrying the Troll Knight's Sword. The stone hammer that the Stonedigger Trolls carry were ceremonial relics used in smithing, an act that was once seen as divine.

This is an optional boss, as players don't need to defeat it in order to advance. These towering creatures may have a tough exterior, but they can be easily toppled; beware of their high level of Hardness, but overcome it and they are easily staggered. Sleep is also effective for this fight due to the Troll's low resistance to the status effect. They drop the Roar Medallion and Great Club when defeated.

Bosses are unique and challenging Enemies that can be encountered all over the Lands Between. Great Enemy bosses can drop unique Spirit AshesWeaponsSpells, and other various Items.

Trolls can be found as a regular enemy in the Lands Between.

 

 Trolls are descended from the giants, and their hammers were supposedly once used as ceremonial smithing tools. In the distant past, smithing was considered divine.

Stonedigger Troll Combat information

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.

Stonedigger Troll Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Stonedigger Troll:

 

Melee Strategy

The Troll has high Hardness, so most one-handed melee attacks will rebound off it preventing you from landing chain attacks. You can prevent this by two-handing your weapon or using a weapon with higher Hardness. Also, beware of its large area-of-effect attacks and give yourself plenty of time to move out of the way or roll through them. Otherwise, the safest place to be is near his feet, and ideally behind him as well. You can still get hit by his Stomp, but follow-up moves will mostly miss you.

Stance Breaking: Since the troll has very low Stance, it doesn't take many fully-charged heavy attacks or jump attacks to get it to collapse onto the floor. Land a critical hit if you want, or just land more blows until it gets back up.

 

Magic and Ranged Strategy

The Troll is slow but hits with large area-of-affect attacks, so make sure you aren't caught in them. It's best to use a shield in one hand and your staff or seal in the other, in case you need to guard in an emergency. Bait his attacks, then roll away to create separation before casting.

 

Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Stomp Raises its leg and stomps its down. It'll continue stomping the same leg until you're out of range Roll towards the leg that didn't stomp and land a hit on it
Swing Swings its hammer either along the ground or down in front of it Roll towards a horizontal sweep or away from a vertical one, or else stay safe near its legs and land a hit
Arm Sweep Sweeps its arm along the ground Roll towards the arm
Column Slam Slams its hammer down headfirst directly into the ground in front of it, creating a shockwave Roll towards its legs
Kneeling Swing Kneels on the ground and braces itself with its hand and swings its hammer in a wide counterclockwise arc with extra reach Roll towards the hammer
Mega Slam Grabs its hammer with both hands and holds it above its head higher and longer than for a normal vertical swing, then slams it into the ground releasing a huge shockwave The safest strategy is to run away, but you can also get in a hit while it's winding up and then jump over the shockwave
Overhead Combo Lets out a furious growl and slams its hammer into the ground in front of it four times. Next, raises its left leg for a few seconds before doing one more colossal hammer slam. Finally, pulls its hammer out of the ground with a shockwave. Only does this below 60% HP This attack is strong, but it doesn't have very good tracking. Stay near its legs and you'll be fine except for the final slam, which has a wide enough shockwave that you should try to roll it if you're anywhere nearby
Roar Roars, creating a large shockwave and increasing the Troll’s damage by 20% for 15 seconds Move far away or roll through the shockwave

Elden Ring Stonedigger Troll Lore, Notes & Other Trivia

  • The Stonedigger Trolls wield the Troll's Hammer, a ceremonial smithing tool, suggesting that they used to be blacksmiths. In the distant past, smithing was considered divine. The hammer is also used by War Counselor Iji, a Troll blacksmith who used to serve the Carian royals.

      This guy must have ankles made of wet toilet paper with how easy he is to stance break, two jumping attacks or heavy attacks from a basic hammer knocks him over in no time.

      • Anonymous

        The Flame of Frenzy incantation wrecks these guys. One charged cast was staggering them for me, so I could just cast, critical, cast, critical. Two or three cycles till he was dead.

          The one I fought at Altus shot flame out of his left hand and killed me as I was running around to his left. Insta death…

            I'm on a Warrior run through and scimitars bounce off.. not mentioned on this page is a discovery I made that a torch attack messes this dude up.. a few torch attacks caused him to stagger and allowed for a huge animated critical hit.

            • Anonymous

              I feel there's no way this enemy has the Absorptions listed here. Maybe the data for the generic Troll / Troll Knight enemies got entered instead? Check for yourself and you can see that he takes more damage from Strike than from Slash.

              • Anonymous

                The Stonedigger version of these trolls is weak to strike damage, not slash. My curved swords just bounced off. He didn't go down til I switched to the whip.

                  Super easy to beat - bow and flame arrows - when you first enter, shoot the barrels closest to him - then as he advances toward you, shoot other barrels as he nears them - killed in three explosions

                    3-4 charged R2's at the legs will make most trolls including this boss fall, revealing their face for a critical hit.

                    Bow snipes and jumping attacks to the face will also cause them to stagger for a few seconds

                    • Anonymous

                      In case anyone here use a bow like I do, if you shoot at his face he will flinch for a few seconds, during which he won't fight back at all (at least, he didn't when I did). I used Mouse to aim though, so I don't know if it'll be viable for controller-user.

                      The information on his weak point is an actual item in the game by the way.

                        Sleep works awesome. The Sword of St Trina can keep most of these in a state of continuous sleep for easy kills.

                          Seems to be fairly susceptible to bleed and strike? Flail did short work of him and is easy to get early game

                            What an odd boss. Even at SL1 with the starter spell Glintstone Pebble and the first staff you can get this boss melts like it is weak, even for what would be a mini boss, despite being an actual boss. In fact, this melts the entire cave of mobs as well in about 2 casts per kill (10 int) while avoiding the melee weapon type mechanic.

                              Who wrote these tips? get the ash from miles away to do this boss near the beginning. its like saying come back later when you are level 50 or something instead of giving helpful advise.

                                Just used Magic Glintblade to kill this guy. Just sent 5 shots, drank a flask and a few more shots. Fight lasted about 6 seconds. Glintblade stuns the heck out of him.

                                  I summoned Noble Sorcerer Ashes, and used a flail. The weaker hit seemed to do pretty good damage on the troll. Just get in there enough to keep the troll's interest on you instead of the sorcerer. He won't do a crazy amount of damage, but he'll help. I didn't have any other good ashes at the time of this fight.

                                    Two-handing seems to prevent bouncing - Club in one hand bounced, in two hands it did not. Bandit's Curved Sword also bounced in one hand, but did not in two.
                                    Recommendation: Battle Hammer with Braggart's Roar; fully charged, roar-buffed two-handed attacks ruined the health bar.

                                      "Because your attacks bounce of him after one hit, this can be a frustrating fight for melee characters." My dude, use a blunt weapon like a club. Only pointed or bladed weapons bounce.
