Watchdog's Greatsword is a Colossal Sword in Elden Ring. The Watchdog's Greatsword scales primarily with Strength and is a good Weapon for cleaving many enemies at once.  

 

Stone greatsword wielded by Erdtree Burial Watchdogs.

Though decorated with the watchman's eye, the pupil was taken by graverobbers and is now hollow, leaving this sword a mere lump of stone.

 

Where to Find Watchdog's Greatsword in Elden Ring

The Watchdog's Greatsword weapon can be found at the following location:

  • Dropped by the sword wielding Watchdogs in the Mountaintops of the Giants.
  • Giants' Mountaintop Catacombs: This dungeon is located East past the Zamor Ruins grace. Follow the normal progression path until you see a group of  enemies and a Fire Prelate. Then double back to your right to find the entrance.
    Once you enter the dungeon, you will eventually come across a lift. Take the lift down, and then trigger the lift but quickly get off. Another lift will rise up from underneath and by taking that new lift down, you will enter the area with Two Watchdogs as well as other various enemies. The second Watchdog can drop it.
  • Giant-Conquering Hero's Grave: This dungeon can be reached by heading West of the Giants Grave Post site of Grace (just past the guardians garrison), and jumping over a small ravine.
    After entering the Dungeon heading down a short flight of stairs, a Fire Monk will approach from your right. Head right down the hall where the Fire Monk approached from and peer over the windows.  There will be a place to drop down. The Watchdog enemy in this room must be led into the light before defeating, but note that it enters a Vulnerable State after entering the light.
  • Consecrated Snowfield Catacombs: One sword-wielding Watchdog can be found guarding the Imp Head (Elder), which has a chance to drop the sword.

      It may be just my luck, but at 239 discovery, I could not get this thing to drop at the Giant-Conquering Hero's Grave after nearly 30 attempts.
      got it 2nd try at the Giants' Mountaintop Catacombs.

      I did some additional grinding to see if this was a fluke (on account of I have no life) and did 20 runs at each location. 0 drops at GCHG site, 3 drops at GMC.

      I have seen videos of people getting it to drop at the GCHG watchdog, but it would be cool to see someone do a deep dive to see if there is a difference between the watchdogs at these locations in terms of drop rate - or if my experience is just a statistical fluke (which I am not denying is possible.)

        Even though this scales S in HVY, I still find the Colos. Greatsword more viable in terms of DMG.
        Maybe I'm not using it correctly. Any suggestions in terms of getting the most out of this sword?

          Outshined by the greatsword in almost every way, which is a shame since I like the aesthetics of this weapon a lot.

            My brother got two of these in a row while we were playing coop giant conquering heros grave I was so mad bro

              Got it within 7 minutes with 147 discovery.
              Went to Giant-Conquering Hero's Grave and just jumped out the opening next to the fire monk.
              Pass the Watchdog, sit in the circle of light and wait for the imps to debuff, then go for the watch dog after.
              I used the memory of grace to send me back after each time instead of running back every time, saves a lot of time.

                I had one of the watchdogs chase me to an elevator and commit suicide with a plunging attack into the pit beneath it....then saw this appear in my inventory.

                Was a pleasant surprise since I didn't know it existed, especially after reading these comments...

                  Got it after about 15 kills. dat watchdong is tough, don't lose hope! Also whatchu think is the best AoW? I'm a dex focused quality build and between Chilling mist and Giant Hunt. Thoughts?

                    Fought the one in the hero's grave 30 times now with 203 discovery, no drop. More than 99% chance to have seen it by now if the 8% drop rate is accurate.

                      Guard boost values on here are wrong, it does not get 66 stability, in your sweet dreams maybe. It has lower guard than Greatsword.

                        Giants Mountaintop Catacombs is the best spot IMO, you can jump through the window right after the Fire Monk and survive the fall while landing right in front of the Watchdog. You even get a free critical from the dispelling light thingy.

                          This thing is made of stone, gets S strength scaling, and is found far later than Greatsword but doesn't catch up to its AR. It could have been this game's FUGS! But no. Just standard damage. Just an incredibly rare, incredibly lategame, worse version of the Greatsword you can get for free minutes after starting the game. Its base damage is so much lower that despite the higher scaling, it does less even at 99str 2H.

                              They should reduce the weight, so it can be preferable over the guts greatsword for different build/armor.

                                  Shame that there isn't another version of this weapon with the Glintstone jewel still inside. Could've been like the staff where it's still a pure strength weapon, but the Ash of War is something magic related.
                                  I think it would've been cool to have a special, more primal version of the Carian Greatsword weapon art, and instead of the blade being a vertical slash it could've been a horizontal sweep.

                                    On a sl1 build, can be used with just radagons seal and Godricks rune. Or starscourge heirloom in place of one of those. Or, for more damage all 3.

                                      I was farming for 2 of these to dual wield, it took about 10 minutes with 190 discovery, although I think I have dementia, either way it took just about 10 minutes with 190 discovery, I was farming for 2 of them and it took about 10 minutes with 190 discovery, either that or I have dementia.

                                        Its sad that this weapon is mostly inferior to the guts sword [while also being way more of a pain to get] cos its pretty nice looking,like it could've atleast have gotten a unique moveset to compensate but it is not worth really using over the guts sword unless you really like the look of it.

                                            Better scaling for int/str then the greatsword. Slap cold on there with 54 str and 37 int and I and 3 shot most ppl, sometime 4.

                                              Underwhelming compared to other weapons of its type, but still solid meaty damage and far from bad.

                                              Easy Farming Strat:

                                              Note: This is presuming you've cleared the dungeon and deactivated the frost pillar traps

                                              1.Head To the Giants Mountaintop Catacombs, progress and head down the large lift and then activate it again and jump off to bring up a hidden lift then head down that one.

                                              2.Once at the bottom of the secret lift you should reach a Stake of Marika up ahead you'll come across a imp atop some stairs and below a Staff Watchdog run past them and straight down past the first frost pillar trap and towards a second.

                                              3.Kill a second imp in right side alcove just before you reach the second frost pillar trap, behind the trap is the sword watchdog you need to farm. Pretty easy kill but If you're struggling to kill him you can reactivate the frost pillar trap by hitting it and kiting the watchdog into it for extra damage with good timing.

                                              4.If it dies and doesn't drop the sword, make sure you deactivate the trap if you reactivated it and then go suicide yourself into the staff watchdog you ran past, respawn at the nearby Stake of Marika the rush back and repeat 3-4 until you get the drop.

                                              Took me about 8 tries with 118 discovery.

                                                The same reach are the trolls gold and R2, super late, the only greatsword that you have to grind, and it is not a somber weapon.

                                                  The watchdogs are INSANELY weak to the "Flame of the Redmanes" ash of war. Two casts will stagger them, and can be pulled off before the watchdog can do a single attack. You can chain stun/riposte them to death without taking a single hit.

                                                              The advantage to this sword over all the other colossal swords is that you can farm up 5 of them in NG to cover all your perfect PVE and PVP affinities, and swap to them as needed without changing moveset.

                                                                  This chop puts your character in a low stance for a second that can duck under a surprising number of attacks.

                                                                  For example, vs Omens, the R2 chop can interrupt anything except their slap attacks; but it also ducks under the slap attack, making it completely safe on wake up.

                                                                  Give it a shot!

After lowering the trap behind the first Watchdog, run past it and raise the trap again. Then use a bow to aggro the second watchdog. Keep shooting at it until it is in range of the trap but then stop to prevent it from continuing to advance. Both will be dead in 9 blasts of the trap in NG.

                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                  • Anonymous

Strength scaling is B for cold and fire (not flame) so it seems like it would be good on a strength/INT of str/faith build. At +24 my cold infusion has 150 frost buildup and is freezing people with 2 hits. I think people may be sleeping on the possibilities of this weapon for now.

                                                                                                    • Anonymous

I still think this is an annoying farm but I recommend watching something on another device while farming for this thing.

                                                                                                      • Anonymous

It's also one of the few weapons that can get B scaling in lightning and fire infusion which is where it truly shines.

                                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                                          • Anonymous

Has to with the Watchca--Watchdogs swinging it all over the place."

                                                                                                            It has not only less scaling than the Greatsword which you can get in mere minutes, it has less reach too. As far as I can tell the only real benefit you receive for using the WDGS is one less weight which, let's be honest, is not going to change much at 22 units.

                                                                                                            Unless you have some Fashion Rings idea with this thing, probably best to pass on it. Way better (and lighter) options.

                                                                                                            • Anonymous

It is a bit shorter than the GUTS sword, but it gets the job done and looks really stylish coupled with the GUTS sword when dual wielding.

                                                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                                                  So I suggest you all try first Giant-Conquering Hero's Grave first before any farming

                                                                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                                                                    • Anonymous

Im currently on journey 3 and this mf are worse then any boss I have faced so far. Ice breath one shots me (full bull armor). I normally use the ruin greatsword. 0 damage. The Weapon art + 99 STR. didnt even do them 10% dmg. I legit tried every fcking build that I had (bleed; they cant bleed btw, ice, twinblades, canon shields, bow, radahns swords, every damn grease in the game and soo much more). It was pure hell for me and I regret it so much to didnt do this in my first Journey. In the end, it took me more then 70 tries (I legit died more then half the time), 12 SILVER-PICKLED FOWL FOOT and my mental health. So how did I beat them? It almost sounds stupid hpw easy it was in the end. Just equipped a greatshield and counterattacked like 4 times till I could crit (to my defense, I didnt even know u can crit them! I used so many heavy weapons and they didnt stagger once till I tried it with counter attack spam).

                                                                                                                      Hope this information helps.

                                                                                                                        The trick is to run past the first mace watchdog, aggro the sword one with a bow, so that it starts lumbering towards you, then hit the middle trap pillar(which shoots both ways) and let that kill them and do all the work for you. If the weapon doesnt drop, shoot the far end trap pillar, die to it and then just spawn at the statue of marika that is really close. Rinse and repeat.

                                                                                                                        I found this to be the easiest and fastest method of obtaining this weapon. Work smarter, not harder!

The trick is to run past the first mace wielding watchdoge, aggro the sword one with a bow and hit the middle trap pillar(which shoots in both directions), so it kills them without you needing to do any work. If it doesnt drop, raise the far end trap pillar by shooting it with a bow and die to it, then respawn at the statue of marika that is really close to them. Rinse and repeat. I found this to be the easiest and fastest method of obtaining this weapon.

The only thing this has against the greatsword is weighing ONE unit less. Very disappointing considering this is the hardest colossal sword to get.

There are 3 total Watchdogs in this dungeon; 1 at the start, and 2 below the Troll - drop over the railing, ignore the Fire Prelate, and enter any of the 2 hallways at the back of the room. 1 has a ladder and 1 has a drop - both lead to the same room though. Best luck!
