        i don't think they cast Great Heal, I actually think more like Bountiful Sunlight. By the way it's coloured and the fact it gives them and other enemies passive regen. i think this is very interesting because we get Bountiful Sunlight from Rosaria's soul... this may indicate that they know of Rosaria and they serve her in way maybe but this is just speculation.

          These guys seem to have infinite stamina - two hand great sword, hack/slash AND kick without break. Jesus.

            The knights in the Gallery are Consumed King's knights, not Cathedral knights, even though they have nearly the same drops. I suppose the cathedral knights are clad in red because of their allegiance to the church. As for the Consumed King's knights, I don't think they play the same role as their cathedral counterparts, Oceiros is an abomination, but not a monster from the deep. They don't chase intruders that are attracted by the repulsiveness of the Consumed King as the cathedral knights do, I think they simply protect their king and his garden. And, while the cathedral knights seemed to prevent deep abominations to escape, Oceiros is too demented to escape. This is not a theory, just a vibe I got with these guys.

              These guys literally have infinite stamina. Two hand a Greatshield and you'll see.

              Broken ass enemy. Drakekeepers 2.0. Then everyone whined about them and ignored these guys.

                  Unfortunately, the armor that is dropped is the one worn by those in the cathedral. There are no Lothric variants of the armor/weapons. I was really hoping to get the blue cape armor plate for my STR/FTH build ;(

                    He doesn't drop Large Shards only normal ones, killed about 20 of them and only got normal shards. Not sure about Titanite Chunks though since the yare marked as extremely rare.
