Giant Undead

Giant Undead

Giant Undead are an Undead foe in Dragon's Dogma

Overview

Giant Undead are bigger than even the Stout Undead and are much harder to kill than their lesser brethren. They are found in Gransys and The Everfall after slaying the Dragon even during the day. They are more common on Bitterblack Isle.

They will use their massive size to crush opponents by charging at them, knocking over anyone in their path. They are also difficult to stagger, given their large size. In some respects they are simply larger versions of the more common Undead peasants with similar weaknesses to Fire and Holy damage.

Tactics

  • Weak against Fire and Holy enchanted weapons and spells.

    Grand Scension vs 5 Giant Undead-0

    Undead enemies (such as Giant Undead) are highly vulnerable to Holy magick attacks (such as Holy Furor and Grand Scension), often slaying them instantly. Here, Grand Scension takes only 3 seconds to charge and instantly slays an entire column of Giant Undead with little effort.

  • Vulnerable to Torpor.
  • Vulnerable to Tarred, but not Blind.
  • Despite their size, they can be grabbed and thrown. Melee vocations can also grapple them to lower their defenses for other allies to strike.
  • Giant Undead attacks are typically frontal oriented and easily dodged, so attacking them from the side and rear flanks (or at range with bows) should keep the Arisen out of harm's way.
