Kraekan Cyclops is a Boss in Salt and Sanctuary.


"A one-eyed behemoth of the Kraekan origin. The Kraekan are an often spoken of, scarcely seen race of ancient demons of the sea. The sea is a vast, terrifying and deadly place, and when sailors do not return, rumors abound."


  • The Watching Woods / Sunken Keep: Go down and to the right in the Watching Woods. When you enter the Sunken Keep, there's a drop down but it's easily survivable. The boss is shortly after.
  • Coordinates: {X:26734.77 Y:23051.81}
  • Boss Flags: If Kraekan Cyclops is defeated, can bypass The False Jester fight (not recommended)


Combat Information

  • Attack Types: Physical damage, aoe, knockback.
  • Weak vs: Elemental Damage
  • Strong vs: Strike Damage

Phase 1

  • Overhead and forward slashes with his weapon.
  • Slides his weapon along the ground and rests it on his shoulder, covering a very wide area. Commonly followed up with a overhead swing.
  • When the player is a distance away, the boss either does a jumping attack with a overhead swing or a jumping attack with a weapon slide.

Phase 2

  • Becomes more aggressive, and seems to be somewhat faster in his attacks.
  • His jumping attack with a weapon slide is now followed up with a second weapon slide, usually turning him around.



Player Notes


Light rolling (under 25% equip load is optimal for this fight). His attacks are incredibly hard to dodge without quick rolling. Jumping isn't effective against this boss and isn't recomended.

      Be a magic user with the spell lightning barrage, stay away from him and spam the attack. Just be carful not to become fatigued and he should be easy to kill.

        Big shields with 100% block are pretty good for this fight, but memorise those attacks and only do one swing when you get the opportunity. Blocking and letting your stamina regenerate is easy, but finding time to heal is hard!

          His attack where he slides the axe on the ground starting behind him is undodgeable. Even when nowhere near the axe itself, I take full damage and am sent flying, after which I'm given about two milliseconds to gain my bearings before this boss begins continuing it's Bloodborne-esque onslaught in this game with a protagonist slower than a Havel knight with low Vitality.

            Actually I disagree with the advice that jumping is bad. I created a paladyn and I had a problem to beat this boss at 18lvl. After dying several times in the row, I started just jumping near the boss and attack 3 times each jump - boss died easly.

              I stumbled on this boss once before defeating the Queen of Smiles. Now I can't find him again and I'm like.. what the hell is happening.
