Corpse-Grub is an Enemy in Dark Souls 3.

 

Enemy Description

  • A writhing mass of maggots and decaying flesh, attached to a mindless hollow. Comes in small and large varieties.

 

 Locations

 

Combat Information

  • Uses its arms for quick swiping attacks.
  • Attacks that hit the player leave them with maggots. Maggots gradually build up Bleed and can be removed by Bonfires, Torches, Bloodred Moss Clumps or letting them apply bleed twice.
  • They hit very fast and easily stagger a player. Ready a dodge for their charge.
  • Use pyromancy, a torch, or a fire-infused weapon to stun them for a few seconds.
  • Ironically very susceptible to bleeding.

 

Notes & Trivia

Possibly a developed form of Infested corpse

 

Upon closer inspection, maggots seem to infest a body, or maybe a mutant body was formed from dark magic?(no legs, no head, big size)

    • Decent farming for echoes in moat at Cathedral of the Deep.07 Oct 2016 01:40  

      Doing slightly over 700 damage for a one shot kill using pyromancy flame +3, fire orb, and 25 intelligence. Adding Lloyd's Sword Ring does almost 800 damage, so 24 intelligence may be a one shot kill.

        There's at least one in the irithyll dungeon, which isn't listed in the article. I don't remember finding these in the smouldering lake tho...?

        • Story of the Torch +311 Jul 2016 15:12  

          So I upgraded my torch to +3 when i first started playing and my friend i was commonly playing with gave me ***** for it all the time, for 'wasting' shards on that...That same friend requested help in Cathedral of the Deep, being the nice person I am, I helped out, finding out he was having great issues with this creature, and all maggot related creatures. He knew about the torch removing maggots from his body, which was fine and well, but when he started giving me ***** for having my Torch +3 out with a shield I did not respond this time, I proceeded to run up to this pages creature, and as he yelled at me over our VOIP server "I'm not going to even try to save your dumb ass!" He immediately fell silent as I began smacking it with my torch, it screaming and burning in pain, and being quite literally 'stun locked' until dead. I stood there after killing it not saying a word, waiting, after about a minute of silence, he quietly asked over the VOIP "wtf just happened?" I calmly responded "Torches deal a bit of fire damage, and swing rather quickly with minimal stamina usage, zombies don't like fire." *uses Black Separation Crystal*

            If it infects you with maggots pull out a torch to stop it dead.<br/>Roll under it's leap, kill it quick (fire helps) then pull out torch if infected and your golden.<br/><br/>- Milton
