Monstrosity of Sin Drops

  • Dung Pie.

Monstrosity of Sin Location

Profaned Capital

  • Can be found sleeping in the Profaned Capital church, surrounded by a toxic swamp and Sewer Centipedes.
  • One can be found sleeping on the second floor of the church.
  • Three others can be found behind a wooden gate on the ground floor of the church. 

 

Monstrosity of Sin Combat Information

  • They have a lot of health and their attacks do a lot of damage, but they are rather slow, making it easier to keep proper distance.
  • They use a fighting style involving rolls, buttstomps and crawling.
  • They are very susceptible to bleed damage. Any weapon with bleed + Carthus Rouge will inflict bleed in 1 hit, making them very easy to kill. This is by far the most effective strategy when it comes to dealing with them. Kukris also cause bleeding, making them an effective alternative which can take care of them from a distance. If you'd rather not use infusions or consumable items, you can easily kill them using the Black Blade, as it only takes 2-3 hits to trigger blood loss.
  • Despite being an Abyssal creature, they are weak to dark.
  • They have a deadly grab attack after standing that results in them eating you. However, you can counter attack its eyes on its belly for a riposte. This is easy to pull off using the Armor of Thorns Set. It is even easier still from range using bows, crossbows, and magic; while locked on and with good timing, the projectile can be made to hit their vulnerable spot when they stand up to deliver their attack, setting them up for an easy, virtually risk-free riposte.
  • The two that are found asleep inside the church on the first floor can become stuck in the doorway once aggroed, due to the large size of their bodies. If you stand far enough away they'll be unable to use any of their leap, grab, or charge attacks (which have the potential to reposition them) but will continue following you, making it easy to safely pick one off with a bow or spells.
  • Their grab attack will also drain some of your collected souls. It drains 150 each second for 7 seconds total (1050 souls), but the grab can be escaped by button-mashing, allowing you to escape after 4 seconds and losing 600 souls.

 

Monstrosity of Sin Notes & Trivia

  • It has more than 5 fingers on all of its hands.
  • The growths on the palm and fingers of its "main hand" are very reminiscent of Manus.

      My name is Yoshikage Kira. I'm 33 years old. My house is in the northeast section of Morioh, where all the villas are, and I am not married. I work as an employee for the Kame Yu department stores, and I get home every day by 8 PM at the latest. I don't smoke, but I occasionally drink. I'm in bed by 11 PM, and make sure I get eight hours of sleep, no matter what. After having a glass of warm milk and doing about twenty minutes of stretches before going to bed, I usually have no problems sleeping until morning. Just like a baby, I wake up without any fatigue or stress in the morning. I was told there were no issues at my last check-up. I'm trying to explain that I'm a person who wishes to live a very quiet life. I take care not to trouble myself with any enemies, like winning and losing, that would cause me to lose sleep at night. That is how I deal with society, and I know that is what brings me happiness. Although, if I were to fight I wouldn't lose to anyone.

        After so long playing this game, it finally hit me: the swamp surrounding the temple the Monstrosities of Sin reside in is from them*****TING. Think about it: the swamp causes the toxic build up effect, like the Dung Pies they drop and the area is littered with Sewer Centipedes, who are only found there or at the lake in Irithyll, mostly around the drainage area where you find the Excretement-Covered Ashes.

            I think these dudes are resistant to Strike damage, since my Heavy Great Club +7 at 42 strength deals very little damage to them.

              Four Monstrosities of Sin.... The Eleonora description clarifies that they were once four women... Four daughters of Manus...

                I think what's most disturbing about these enemies is the body and movement is clearly modeled off of an infant/toddler that has yet to learn how to properly walk.

                  Another way of taking care of them is by using Vordt's Great Hammer, which applies frost after only 1 hit and then reset it by attacking with a torch

                    Their quick grab attack is absolute bullshit, not only does it trigger immediately, but you cannot stagger them out of it, I tried.

                      If you shoot it when they standing and about to do their grab attack, it instantly knocks them back leaving their belly eyes open for slashing.
