Banedigger (Mounted Overseer) Information


"From atop gigantic monstrosoties capable of exerting tremendous amounts of dark power, weak overseers watch over the Laborers of Harvest Valley. The mounts have as much in common with demonic steeds as anything humanoid.

The giant and the rider is counted as a whole piece of entity rather than two seperated entities, generally it shoots a dark orb projectile (but it isn't a hex, therefore cannot be silenced with Profound Still), if you're getting too close, it'll use melee attacks instead, oddly you can use it to break barricades, with the help of Yearn spell."






Strategy Tips

  • Try attacking from the above as they can't aim up.


Move Set

  • Dark Orb: Immune to Profound Still, due to projectile not being spell.
    • Dark Damage
    • Can be blocked.
  • Melee: Used at close range.
    • Physical Damage
    • Can be blocked/Parried.

      Is anyone interested do some Sunbro Co-op? I play on both PC (SOTFS) and on PS3 (Vanilla). I have several characters in different levels, from low ones till 17 million soul memory. My nick on PC is: King_Havel And on PS3 is: Dastiefeleid666 Praise the Sun! \o/

        It seems like getting any of the enemies who can drop sunlight medals is almost impossible before the enemy stops respawning and you need to use a bonfire ascetic

          The two drops are incredibly rare in my experience, and the "can't shoot up" thing is only true in the original version of the game. In SotFS, they can aim up at you when you're on the cliff next to the Stone Trader.

            The can't aim up thing is complete bull****. They can aim up just fine and have one-shotted me many times by doing just that whilst I was farming for Sunlight Medals for the Master of Miracles Trophy
