Ghru Grunt

Enemy Type Ghru
Weakness Fire
Resistances ??
Immune Poison/Toxic

Ghru Grunts are enemies in Dark Souls 3.


Enemy Description

  • Ghru Grunts come in three variations: Leaper (unclothed and unarmed), Duellist (unclothed wielding a dagger) and Spearman (clothed using a spear and shield).
  • Ghrus are descendants of the Farron guardians. Some event has turned them into goatlike demons.


Combat Information

  • Ghrus are fast and aggressive but their attacks are easily blocked.
  • All Ghru weapons increase poison buildup.
  • The shield of the Ghru does not reduce a lot of damage but they can attack while blocking.
  • The unarmed Ghru, that is standing fully erect, will jump high into the air and stomp straight down on top of the player. Dodging is the best way to avoid this. It will also leap at a lower arc and wrap its legs around the player and claw at their face to do massive damage. They like to spam this attack so try to time your rolls to evade. This will allow for windows of opportunity to attack them from behind or the side.
  • Can be affected by the Rapport Pyromancy spell.

        Good god are these things annoying. Tried rolling backward the first time I saw one winding up for an attack. Little did I know he was the cross country champion of farron keep. Or that his buddy was hiding behind a tree, waiting for me to present my back to it. Or that the unarmed ones are stronger than the soul of cinder. At least he doesn't one shot you if he gets anywhere within 20 feet of you.

          At least they don't devour you like Mimics do. Because then we could honestly say that "You got eaten by a Ghru." Most people probably won't get that reference.

            these guys can backstab you. Like, full animation, crit damage. I was backstabbed by one using a dagger in Smouldering Lake after I dropped down a hole, landing with my back right in front of one.

              Clearly Farrons guards didn't have enough females but plenty of nanny goats to go around...if you get what I mean. Lol!

                The spearmen in New Game (not New Game+) have 435 HP. The shamen in New Game also have 435 HP or thereabouts.

                    The stomp: upward slash weapon art keeps them from falling off the side of the bridge. Lothric Knight Greatsword, Zweihander, Dark Sword and Bastard Sword have this version of stomp.

                      It's pretty scary (and movie/Videogame-ish) that we know next to NOTHING about the Ghru!We don't know what it is, what it's weak to, what it's resistant to or what it is immune to!
