Amana Aberration is an enemy in Dark Souls 2 (DKS2)Amana Aberration, rat-like beings found in the Shrine of Amana, sit in water, listening to the Milfanito sisters' song. Quick in water, hard to locate without lock-on, and aggressive towards torch-wielding players, they inflict cursing and bleeding damage. Enemies have their own behavior and unique attacks, killing enemies provide various drops that reward players with items and souls.


Amana Aberration Information in Dark Souls 2

A Hollow that lived in an aquatic environment for an extended period of time and eventually adapted to its surroundings by mutating into its present form. These creatures prowl the shallow waters of the Shrine of Amana, perpetually searching for sources of fresh Souls.1

A strange, hollowed, rat-like enemy found in the Shrine of Amana who spend their time sitting in the water listening to the singing of the Milfanito sisters. Moves very quickly in the water, is very hard to locate without locking-on, and will aggressively attack players using a torch. They tend to be located near other Amana Aberrations or the casters in the area. They can inflict cursing and bleeding damage so its best to fight from range or block while in the water.

They are docile while the Milfanito is singing, evident by the fireflies surrounding them. This can be used to locate and snipe them from afar.

Possibly created from some twisted experiment in Aldia's keep, as they possess features of both Basilisks and normal hollows.

DS2 Amana Aberration Notes and Tips

  • In SotFS (needs confirmation for the original) they will have firefly-like effects around them while the Milfanito sing. They are also more docile. Perhaps this is what the Milfanito refer to when they say "When we sing, the little ones dance." 
  • Defeated Amana Aberrations will subtract 7 seconds from the length of a co-op session. See Online for more detailed information about Multiplayer Time Limits.

      I really enjoyed farming these guys + the nearby Archdrake knights. A beautiful area with some nice singing and a variety of useful drops, love it.

        I just got the clear bluestone ring and many effigies so it's still possible to get these items. I've heard you shouldn't use any items or amour that helps with item drops because it will then skip the higher % drops for the lower which would make items rarely show up, but they'd be rare or very rare drops. It's up to you what you wanna do. But I'll look right now...yup, there it is. And when I came to this enemy to check, i was like wow, that is weird these drop a plus 2 ring. Just don't use items that help with item drops!

          Who TF thinks this looks like a rat? It's clearly something reptilian or amphibious like a salamander or a gator.

            I've tried to farm human effigys with them!
            I was clothed with complete possible farming gear including (gold serpent ring +1)
            I killed over 20 of them none of them dropped anything!

            • I've never seen them do an attack that can inflict curse build up so I think the description above is wrong. There are curse jars in a few specific spots in Shrine Of Amana so maybe there was some confusion there.
