Drops

Combat Information

  • The Deep Accursed in Cathedral of the Deep can be safely killed with a ranged weapon from the doorway, as it is to big to fit through. (Tested this, works.)
  • 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.

      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.

      • scary!06 Aug 2016 10:33  

        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 02:46  

          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 them21 May 2016 23:16  

            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.

              A theory of mine is that these things are related with aldrich<br/><br/>First of they have aldrichs ring<br/>Second they are in areas aldrich lives or lived cathedral and anor londo<br/><br/>Now to the theory<br/>Aldrich becomes stronger by devouring other beings. He wants to get stronger but only has limited "space in his stomach" because of that he has to split things from his body like the slime things in cod (cathedral) and anor londo and these catspiders are unlike the normal slimethings because aldrich accidently separated something more powerful than humans he devoured from his body maybe a demon spider or a ludwig like being. The rings from them are because he seperated his arms for them. Or he did it on purpose to keep him from any harm as a last guardian if the deacons and slimes wouldnt stop us. You may ask why the aldrich we fight has arms look at him and say its not gwyndolin.<br/>

              • Strength weapons work well08 May 2016 05:15  

                If you hit it once in the face with most strength weapons ( i was using demon greataxe) it will stun them in one hit allowing you to easily kill them.<br/>

                • anybody else noticed a similarity?07 May 2016 00:49  

                  has anyone else noticed how much this thing looks like a colossus from "shadow of the colossus"? I think it's cool if they based it off of that, it's face, yellow eyes, and fur all looks insanely similar to the "colossi"

                  • Aldrich connection30 Apr 2016 14:29  

                    That should be clearified. About the Bloodborn reference I'm not so sure. Heavy shields (Havel level) make this fight an easy one as long you are carefull about the poison.
