Ogre is an enemy in Dark Souls 2. They can first be encountered up a hidden path before the bridge leading to the Firekeepers' house in Things Betwixt


Ogre Information


"Ogres resemble a cross between a cyclops and hippopotamus, and possess a horn on their foreheads
Ogres have large amounts of HP and deal significant damage, and their attacks are relatively swift for enemies their size
Ogres can grab players and devour them, guaranteeing death for players. Ranged attacks and poison are recommended when dealing with Ogres






Strategy Tips

  • For Solo Ogres, make sure that you have light armor equipped (Enough to be around 40%) and some weapon that has a pretty strong attack that it can execute relatively quickly. Now, approach the Ogre, roll UNDER the Ogre's attacks, and otherwise try to get behind the Ogre's back without getting hurt. Now, when you are behind the enemy, take out your weapon, and wait for him to try and sit on you; if he doesn't, get behind him and try again. In essence you are trying to bait his sit attack. Once you have baited the Ogre's slam attack out, hit him. After performing this singular attack, stand behind the Ogre, and wait for him to use his move attempting sit on you once more. Rinse and repeat until his swamp is yours.
  • As stated above, you want to either bait out an Ogre's 1-2 combo followed by its toppling over during which a swift 2 strikes can be dealt safely OR you attempt to get directly behind the Ogre causing its sitting attack, which is slow and easy to dodge and leaves a window for up to 3 safe hits. The sitting attack will continue to be repeated as long as you remain directly behind the Ogre, allowing easy kills even for low level characters.
  • For Shrek & Fiona (The owners of the Transgender Coffin), it is simple. First, bait out one of the two Ogre Royals to the wooden tree-bridge. Once you've gotten an Ogre on the bridge, keep them on it with aggro management, and try to get them to attack (without hitting you). Sooner or later, said Ogre will fall off the bridge. You can now kill the other Ogre with your weapon, or you can bait the fellow (whom is most certainly mourning the loss of their better half) over the bridge, allowing them to be buried with their lover.
  • 8 poison arrows from Dragonrider Bow +5 is enough to kill them in NG+.
  • The below video demonstrates how to bait the sit attack for a solo Ogre:


Move Set

  • Swings three times
  • Swings two times and falls onto back, attempting to crush player
  • Falls onto its backside, if player is attacking from behind.
  • Grab attack: Grabs player and gnaws on head. Almost always insta-death due to its considerable affliction of the Bleed status effect.
  • Uppercut



  • The solo Ogre in Shrine of Amana can glitch and fall through the ground if you attack it from afar.

      For Shrek & Fiona I was usually baiting them to the entrance cave, since they are tall they cannot go inside but stuck at the door trying to reach me then I was killing them with hit'n'run at first levels to get extra souls for the start xD

        Old Radiant Lifegem does not drop just in the Scholar of the First Sin edition. I just got an ORL from an Aldia Keep ogre in the original PC version. Im sure it's a rare drop though. First time I've seen it drop from one, but I am wearing a Coveteous Gold ring +1 so I am sure that helped.

          DONKEY (trailing after Shrek) Oh, you both have layers. Oh. {Sniffs} You know, not everybody likes onions. Cake! Everybody loves cakes! Cakes have layers. SHREK I don't care... what everyone likes. Ogres are not like cakes.

            While farming Petrified Dragon Bones from the Acolytes in Aldia's Keep (I was wearing a Prisoner's Tatters, a Symbol of Avarice, and a Covetous Gold Serpent Ring +1, and I was also under the effects of the Rusted Coin), the three Ogres dropped a grand total of two Old Radiant Lifegems over the course of five or six (or seven?) runs. Not the regular Radiant Lifegems. I'm not sure if the inclusion of regular Radiant Lifegems is incorrect, or if the Old Radiant Lifegem drops are exclusive to Scholar. Also, the article makes mention of a video that does not appear. A mistake on someone's part? I'm willing to edit spelling, grammar, and Randomly Capitalized Letters, but not outright remove parts.

              Aldia's Keep: Go into the room that leads to the bonfire after aggroing one. Wait for it to be close enough to the door and attack. (Works especially well with the Great Sword (roll attack makes most DMG)

                Watch their grab attack because they possess mysterious force powers that can pull you into their hungry fists even if you are where you think it's "safe". TLDR: They grab you about half a roll beyond their actual hands.
