It is possible that the rift between Drangleic and the outside world is a native habitat for the monstrous Ogres, but are beasts like this simply born… or are they created?1

Attack Patterns

  • Swings - runs toward the player and swings both arms. Blockable, but high stamina damage.
  • Falling crash - spreads its arms and rushes towards the player. Once it comes within a certain range of the player, it will fall forward. Blockable, but high stamina damage.
  • Uppercut - uses a quick uppercut. Fast attack. Blockable.
  • Sit - turns away from the player and sits down. Blockable, but high stamina damage.
  • Eat - lifts both arms and pounces towards the player. If this hits, will pick up the player and chew on their head. Almost always a one-hit kill and will cause bleed. Notably bad hitbox, can hit even when its hands land in front of the player. Unblockable.

Easy melee strategy

Baiting them to perform their Sit attack gives time for two safe melee swings. A bit tricky in Aldia's Keep since there isn't a lot of room to move and you can be caught with your back against a wall.
Suggest removing heavy equipment so that rolling to safety is quicker.
