The Unspeakable Deep is a Boss in Salt and Sanctuary



A Kraekan in its most common form. Creatures like these once had a name, but sailors so feared possibly conjuring one by speaking its name that referring to them as simply the Deep became widespread. Whatever their true name is, it has since been lost to the deep, dark sea."

Combat Information

  • Attack Types: Physical, Knockback
  • Weak vs: Elements
  • Strong vs: Slash and Strike


Phase 1

  • Delayed Jump Attack - leans back and jumps, both body and landing deal damage.
  • Fist Slam - slams in front of himself with one arm.
  • Both Fists Slam - slams with both fists at once, executed faster than if with one arm.


Phase 2

  • Combos are slightly faster.

 

Strategy

The Unspeakable Deep is slow but hard hitting boss, his attack patterns are very easy to read but in most cases one hit is enough to take down whole health of your character. Equip load under 25% is advised for fast rolling behind his massive body and doing up to 1-2 attacks before switching sides and going for next attack. With careful play and patience, one can bring it down eventually.

There is only a single chance to beat him per character (cannot fight again in New Game+), if you fail to beat him you must create a new character from scratch. To get through the game intro fast, press A to skip the text and then remove enough clothing to get <25% equip load for fast roll. Jump over the first NPC, rolling past the enemies and out the door before they catch up.

Cleric is one of the easiest classes to beat him with, since not only does it start with a damaging weapon (the Mace) but it also starts with blessed pages and Mend. The cleric should remove their pants to get fast roll and they will be able to survive a single hit and heal back to full health, meaning they can get hit at least four times before dying if they can escape to heal up (but only indirectly, e.g. leaping or shockwave, getting hit by his overhead fists is an insta-kill). Utilize the blessed pages for more damage output and get next to him, rolling past him whenever he attacks or leaps and hitting him a couple times. If he gets too close to the edge you can bait him forward.

Paladin is also a good class to kill him with since it starts with five Lightvessels that do heavy damage when thrown and a powerful weapon - Morning Star.

Pauper's pitchfork does a lot of damage to him with its strong attack. 

When boss dies you will only have a couple seconds to pick up the gold before the ship sinks regardless. However, it doesn't count as a death so you will still have your Salt.

 Player Notes

  • Killing him grants one of the few Black Pearls that can be found during the game (useful for a Level 1 playthrough).
  • It actually makes sense to kill him, as it's one of the very few occasions you can get your hands on a Drowned Tome (two per cycle).
  • The Shimmering Pearl is unobtainable until late game, unless you get it from the tutorial boss.
  • While fight is long and tedious, it is worth effort for some extra gold and salt that will grant some early level ups.

          I just beat this thing after about 45 minutes of rage and I only got the salt. It didn’t give me any time to run and get the gold. Also, I have no new items in my inventory...what did I do wrong?

            this boss is cancer. they had to have updated it recently so you cant beat him or something. you literally get no chance to move or even attack. he just uses the jump attack almost immediately and you cannot avoid that no matter what. ive tried rolling through it right before he hits the ground. ive tried rolling past him before he makes the jump. its completely unavoidable. and i went through the game having almost no problems with any of the bosses. this boss is retarded.

              NOTE: YOU ARE NOT MEANT TO KILL HIM07 Oct 2016 19:33  

              You just need to get past him or slay him if you want because killing him is not part of the story. its just there if you want to slay it.

                Glitch to kill him in NG+ on PC09 Jun 2016 18:30There is a levitation glitch using a ladder that allows to get back to the ship area and kill him. Here is how it goes :1 - In the options, remap the jump and roll actions on a same button (preferably one easy to access, you will have to spam it)2 - Go to the entrance of the festering banquet3 - If you haven't yet, kick the ladder just above the entrance4 - Get onto the ladder, (preferably on the lower part)5 - Hold up, and press your roll + jump button repeatedlyYou should start ascending up and backward, and eventually reach the boat area (that is actually up in the sky). Then you can attempt to kill the unspeakable deep and leave usinc a bell of return or a calling horn.Using this method, it's possible to kill him in NG+, and he actually drops more salt!

                  Getting the Gold24 Aug 2016 15:43  

                  This boss drops exactly 8010 gold. To get them coins, start with Pauper class. When the boss gets to 1 hit from defeat, bait its one-handed slow fist slam and then kill it with the pitchfork's lunge attack (Y/Triangle) while being close to it and before it attacks. You will land exactly where the gold drops. Guaranteed ! The pitchfork's makes quick work of it (4 minutes).

                    The gold drop info is wrong.30 Jul 2016 16:12  

                    I managed to get him to jump in the right corner, and rolled into him then deliver final hit so all the gold rained on me.Got a total of 8292 when i spawned at beach, and im guessing since salt was 8120 that the 292 and 120 was from the starting enemys one encounters + the pots... so i would say a good estimate was 8000 gold and 8000 salt (maybe even 8100-8100).

                      A Shame07 Jul 2016 13:56  

                      Its a shame really that they didn't make as a "Boss you can hardly scratch in the start" to have it mop the floor with you. Only to then fight it again later on when you actually have nice gear and so forth. But that's just me being bugged when a cool Cthulu boss gets wasted in the Prologue :'c

                            Easier variant28 Mar 2016 21:22  

                            The thief seems to be the best character to do this fight.But instead of going in naked and getting OHKO if you do a mistake, undress but still keep your rogue jacket.You'll still be fast enough to run and roll around the boss, but you'll be able to take a hit.Maybe even two if you manage to heal yourself with shards.

                              Easy, but be cautious28 Mar 2016 05:02  

                              Never get greedy with this fight. Only take 1-2 swings when he's open and roll through him as he's about to attack. When he reaches his second phase, I say only take 1 swing since he can 180 you, costing you the whole run. Hope this helps a bit. Also, the clerics Blessed Pages are REALLY good, so use that.

                                Gold18 Mar 2016 16:14  

                                I've noticed after killing, it drops gold that you can't get because the game freezes your character in place. I tried again and right after killing him I managed to pick some of the gold up and got around 5K. They need to fix that so you can pick it up.
