The Coveted is a Boss in Salt and Sanctuary



A strangely sharp stone executioner's axe. As the legend tells it, a royal executioner received it as a mysterious gift, and immediately took a liking to it. Power in the kingdom shifted, and before long, the executioner had used his axe on the entire royal family. Power shifted further, and the executioner became king. But the executioner never resigned from his grisly station, and the axe was well fed, though never satisfied."

Combat Information

  • Attack Types: Physical, Knockback, Magic
  • Weak vs: Arcane Damage
  • Strong vs: Slash Damage
  • The Axe itself is the Boss and can only be hurt not the ghosts
  • The Axe Can be poisoned
  • The boss essentially consists of two invulnerable Coveting ghosts and The Coveted greataxe itself. In the beginning of the fight, one of the ghosts picks up the axe and swings in around while the other bombards you from above. Later, the axe-wielder drops The Coveted, leaving it stuck in the ground again. Both ghosts shoot at you and after a few seconds, one of them goes to retrieve the axe.
  • It is possible to separate the ghosts so that one stays in a corner of the room and loses aggro while you fight the other ghost wielding the axe.


The Axebearing Ghost

  • Pulling the axe from the ground creates a powerful shockwave. Do not stand near the axe while the ghost retrieves it.
  • Lifts the axe then does a downward slash. Very short range.
  • Lowers the axe then rapidly swings it while moving forward. Easily rolled through.
  • Flies high in the air and throws the axe (apparently, not at the character but rather at a fixed arc) leaving The Coveted stuck in the ground and exposed. Attack!


The Unarmed Ghost

  • Fires three fast, damaging, aoe projectiles (strike damage, completely blockable by Paladine Kite Shield) in a row. The ghost cannot turn around while firing, meaning that you're completely save under/behind him.
  • During the transitional phase with the axe on the ground, both ghosts fire these at you.

Player Notes

 Bugs

 If one manages to kill the boss without agro-ing both ghosts, only the agro-ed ghost will die, dropping gold and ashes. This doesnt ends the battle however. Agro-ing the second ghost after the other one is already dead ends the battle, kills the second ghost instantly and makes him drop another pile of gold and ashes.

      whats the damage type of the projectiles? I used a shield with 100 strike defense (Teuthis Shield IV) and it goes through and kills me as if im not blocking at all... but I am and I have enough stamina...

        So, apparently you can get triple the reward. I walked into the fight from the right, then stayed there spamming wraithfang.

        Axe died, get reward.

        Walk a bit, first spirit died, get reward.

        Walk a bit further, second spirit died, get reward.

        • Easy way to fight one02 Aug 2016 21:31  

          Simply access this boss from behind, by getting the Dart brand and getting into the ruined temple via the Pitchwoods! All you need to get past is 3 Spindlebeasts... sigh<br/>...

          • Bug, game ate all of my salt in 1 death02 Jul 2016 00:59  

            walked into this guy with 100k salt, died and when i come back the boss doesn't have my salt nor any spawned mobs to kill for it, essentially lost 100k to a bug...

            • Bug with The Coveted Axe20 Mar 2016 20:34  

              I Transmuted the iron butterfly axe to make the Coveted axe, and then it mysteriously disappeared from my inventory afterwords. What's up with that? I spent awhile farming up that 100,000 salt to get that thing, and i don't have a second Coveted Ashes to make another one. the axe i transumted was not upgraded, but i don't think that should matter because it allowed me to do it.

                I just had a similar experience: <br/>At first both of the spirits aggro'd normally and the fight went as expected until about 66%.<br/>At that point one of the spirits moved to the far left and deaggro'd while I was on the right side.<br/>I took the opportunity and stayed on the right until the second spirit threw the axe while being on the far right side and deaggro'd there.<br/>The remaining 50% I just stood at the axe which was about in the middle of the arena and kept hitting it without being bothered by the spirits.

                  Hey i just wanted to inform whoever, devs, and players *wink wink* you can glitch the boss by only agrro'ing the first of the two spirits, he will eventually throw the axe and remain still, the axe will we vulnerable and nobody else will be moving. after killing the axe the first spirit died and the boss bar remained empty until i walked over and aggrod the second spirit and it said vanquished.<br/><br/>(also not sure if i was supposed to receive two boss salts from it, might be part of the glitch)
