The Cramped Casket ( Undead Amalgam) is an enemy. It is only found in Yahar'gul in two forms, ranged and melee.

Cramped Casket Information

  • The melee form will chase the player down aggressively and will use a flurry of devastating attacks.(Blunt)
  • The ranged form will shoot chunks of blood at you at range, when the player is close enough, it will attempt to melee, but will quickly go back to using ranged attacks if the player retreats.
  • One of them hides in a shaking carriage, which pops out if you approach the body in front of the carriage..



  • In Yahar'gul there are bodies that kneel tall and appear to be burning with a nearly white flame. Forcing this enemy to touch these will severely wound it, slowing it down and making it an easy kill.
  • Executioner's Gloves can easily stagger it once three projectiles connected it.
  • Melee Type - Strafe dash around them very frequently to avoid their high damage attacks and stagger combos.
  • Ranged type - Strafe while closing the distance to avoid their projectiles. They stagger easily but still hit hard, so make sure you have stamina to strafe to their side after a combo. Has extremely long range.
  • NEVER dodge backwards. This enemy has a very long ranged attack and is very easy to avoid by strafing to the backside of this enemy.

      Cramped casket's life, etc05 Jul 2016 14:53  

      This enemy appears in both yahar'gul (after blood moon) as well in chalice dungeons. At yahar'gul it has 864hp and has 16%chance to drop either a beasthunter or a Kinhunter gem. Same drop in dungeons, being the gem lvl dependant on depth. Weak to elements (not inc. Blood) and slightly less to thrust

        Question05 Jul 2016 14:53  

        These things are suppose to do something special if you make them hit the burning bodies, is that true?

          Arcane seams to be a weakness05 Jul 2016 14:53  

          I always use the Auger of the cosmos left behind daughter (cannot spell her name) and it really hurts these things. Also the Executioners Glove and Call from Beyond.

            No dodging backward?05 Jul 2016 14:53  

            Dodging backwards makes them helpless. If you bait their downward slam then jump back it completely avoids it and leaves them vulnerable. They can't do anything. I actually can't reliably dodge around to their back because of their broad sweeps and pivot attack.

              Why are they referred to by two different names on this page? I think EnB said their name is Cramped Casket.

                Found them in a Pthumeru Ihyll Chalice Dungeon. I was very surprised. 3 of them in the same room.

                  Is it possible that these creatures are a by product of the snatchers many abductions. Think about it, they have bloody sacks that they carry all the time and a mostly empty prison. I think it is possible that these creatures are a result of all their kills and the red moon bringing them life and in turn killing the kidnappers. all the dead kidnapper bodies I came across were by cramped caskets.

                    BurnING them on the bodies05 Jul 2016 14:53  

                    Is there a point to catching them on fire? You can make the bodies go out with them (or by hitting them yourself).
