Deep Accursed is an Enemy in Dark Souls 3.

Enemy Description

  • The Deep Accursed is a rare and powerful enemy that resembles a large spider with a monstrous head.
  • Only two of them exist in the game, and they do not respawn after death.

Locations

Drops

Combat Information

  • The Deep Accursed in Cathedral of the Deep can be safely killed with a ranged weapon from the doorway.
  • The Deep Accursed in Anor Londo can be safely killed with a ranged weapon from the stairs on either side of the chamber.
  • The Deep Accursed in Anor Londo can also be safely killed with any weapon by baiting it back to the bonfire and standing by the spiral stairs, it will not be able to enter and will (mostly) just let you attack it.
  • Spits petrifying gas and even the simple bite attacks pile up Curse when blocked. Suit up in light, Curse-resistant clothing and dodge for your life.
  • Vulnerable to bleeding, assuming you can get hits in fast enough.
  • It's fairly easy to break its poise, by hitting it in the head, which leaves an opening for a critical attack.
  • Can be poisoned. (storytellers staff with hidden body)

Notes & Trivia

  • Its neck is lined with skulls, like it's wearing a large necklace of skulls.
  • Though they do not have hooves, the posture of their legs and feet resemble the horselike limbs of Ludwig the Accursed from Bloodborne. They can jump and attach themselves to the ceiling in a similar fashion to Ludwig as well.

      * First encounter with one of these *
      Uhm, yeah you see, I have to go find a boss to kill, so I'll come back later.

        Does the one at Anor die if the doors are opened? A couple of times I've walked by, opened the doors, and it just turns into remains immediately. I've also seen it drop and die instantly.

          Came up with a lame but safe strategy for the one in Anor Lando:

          1. Kill the deacons immediately to your left and down the stairs from when you enter on the top floor, as well as the deacons on the next lowest landing.

          2. Head back up to the top floor and to the balcony above the main entrance, where the Deep Accursed is supposed to drop down from. Look up in the direction of Aldrich's chamber, and you'll see it hanging from the ceiling, facing away from you. Shoot it with anything (I prefer Dragonslayer Greatbow), or lob a firebomb/black firebomb at it. It will descend from the ceiling to the bottom floor way below you.

          3. Head back down the steps where you killed the deacons, all the way to the last landing before reaching the ground floor. From here, the other deacons shouldn't be able to hit you with their fireballs if you didn't also kill the ones on the ground floor, and you won't have to deal with the Flesh of Aldrich enemies. Look toward the main entrance, and you should see the Deep Accursed waiting on the ground in front of the main entrance looking none the wiser, though you may have to reposition yourself to see it between all those pillars. Whip out your bow and fire a single arrow. (Aim for the face, since it's naturally the weak point.)

          4. The Deep Accursed will now approach you and try to attack you, but stand your ground. No matter what it does, it doesn't seem to be capable of hitting you from this vantage point, no matter how close you stand to the edge of the landing. Even the curse fumes and leaping attack are bound to miss. As you can guess, use this opportunity to carefully aim at it from this close range, or use some rope firebombs on it. It might move around quite a bit, but after about ten seconds of not being able to hit you, it should stop moving until you hit it again. Just be careful not to overstep your bounds and fall of the ledge, because you'll probably die instantly.

          5. Continue this method for about a minute longer, and it should drop dead pretty quickly, maybe even taking out some of the Flesh of Aldrich as it thrashes around. Congratulations! You never have to panic roll through that guy's Ludwig-esque attacks ever again!

          (It's also noteworthy that from this vantage point, you can more clearly make out the skulls lining its back, and you'll see that they're not just skulls, but full corpses fused into its hide, similarly to how the Messengers would be fused to certain enemies in Bloodborne. You can even make out frail little arms reaching out of the Deep Accursed, as if they were trying to escape being fused with this weird man-spider... Poor bastards.)

            It dropped down and died instantly, got souls and the ring and didnt know what happened :D
            what i did maybe reproducible: go through the door on the left, take the right stairs down, jump from the plateau with the corpse, use the lever to open the door, face the pyromancers, it dropped down behind me an was dead

              Can someone check if these things are Abyssal enemies? The Wolf Knight's Greatsword seems to work wonders on them - in NG+ 2 I killed the one in the Cathedral of the Deep with 4 hits, and the one in Anor Londo took only 2 blows to the head before it staggered, before a riposte killed it outright.

                Never new these were called Deep Accursed. The fact that theyre called that and look like enemies afflicted by the blood from Bloodborne gives credence to the theory that the age of the deep/ Gaels Nieces painting refer to Bloodborne

                  I've a link to a video with a "stratgy" but i'm unsure if I'm allowed to post that here because I have seen things like "don't post links if you're not on *this* list" on the site before.

                    Hits with approximately ~4 arrows to the head will stagger it and open it up for a riposte and massive damage.

                      These things terrified me so much in the cathedral of the deep part I had to stay in the short tunnel where the cathedral knight came out of and killed the spider!

                          Fire seems to work04 Jul 2016 08:46  

                          I've been playing as a caster and fire seems to work well on them. It took about 2-3 Chaos Bed Vestiges hits at 49 INT and 30 Faith. Pretty sure I heard the critical hit sound and it got stunned for a second. Haven't tested magic or lightning though.

                            Easy way to kill them22 May 2016 05:16  

                            Lure them to a doorway or other area that they can't fit through, then charge a strong attack and hit them square in the face. They should stagger and allow for an easy critical.
