Covetous Demon Information

 

The curved spine of the Covetous Demon is as hard as rock, and rather than slicing through flesh, this weapon seems to grind it apart.

That thing that ended up as a monstrous fiend, what was it to begin with, and why did it never leave the queen? Perhaps it was entranced by some perversion of love.

Eating is an expression of desire. There once was a man whose deep affections were unrequited. He transformed into the Covetous Demon, which only made him lonelier than before.

Strategy Tips

Melee strategy
A quick roll makes this fight significantly easier. Approach the demon to the right, hacking and strafing to maintain your position. His slash attack will not hit you from this spot and you can get in several attacks before he repositions. The demon’s belly flop and roll attacks are slow making it easy to back away from these attacks. He does have a side roll that is not as clearly telegraphed. It is possible to get 1–2 hits after a roll, but his counter-attack is very powerful. Thrusting weapons seem effective, as well as magic damage.
Do not stay in front of the demon – he has a fast grab move which is difficult to escape and causes a lot of damage.

Cheap Strategy-flexible to most builds
If you are having problems using melee, there is an easily applied alternative that is both cheap and effective. Simply have a short bow(using this only requires 7 Strength, and 12 Dexterity), a good number of wooden arrows(I had several hundreds, but 100 for one go should be more than good enough), and be able to fast roll. Once you pass through the fog gate immediately lock onto the covetous demon, fire an arrow, and then begin moving in either direction around the arena. When he attacks, move as is required to avoid his attacks, and then fire another arrow when he is open to attack. Keep moving, dodge attacks, fire an arrow, start moving again, rinse and repeat. Maintain a decent amount of distance from the demon, avoid using all of your stamina, and also take extra caution to avoid getting caught in the broken end of the stairs(off to your right when you first enter, moving left around the arena can help to avoid this). Patience is key, as this strategy takes advantage of the demon's slow speed.

Alternative fail-safe strategy viable for any build
This strategy works perfectly even if you were eaten and stripped of all your equipment. The basic idea is to have somewhere around 30-40 Throwing Knives in your inventory ready for battle. After this just wait for Boss to jump, run away from the landing point, toss 2 knives then rinse and repeat. Keep distance from boss, don't rush it and you'll kill him in no time.

Bait trick
If you have a bow you can shoot the glowing green pots above one at a time to add undead bait the demon. This makes this boss vulnerable to attacks for a short while. (You can shoot down all of the undead bait at the beginning of the fight and take your time fighting the boss while he is eating them. He will target the bait until they are all dead or eaten.) Once the demon has taken the bait shoot another glowing pot and repeat the process. Be wary though, because the demon can sometimes ignore the bait for a short while before its dropped. Try not to kill the undead bait either, they don't aggro.

Notes

  • Stick to the base of his tail on the left side and circle right around the boss as he turns, it makes it a lot harder for him to hit you with his sweeps, as long as you stay close enough to the base of the tail he will not use his tail attack.
  • On NG the demon's swallow attack will not turn you hollow, only unequip your items. (Not sure if it turns you hollow on any playthrough.)
  • After killing Covetous Demon, you cannot break the jar above the room with arrows, however, you can break the jars with Soul Arrow, and it'll drop harmless Undead Citizen.
