Corvian Knight is an Enemy in Dark Souls 3.

 

Enemy Description

  • Dangerous knights very similar to the Boreal Outrider Knights.
  • Corvian Knights are enemies unique to the Corvian Settlement within The Painted World of Ariandel.
  • There are two variants: One wields a Rapier along some Darts (the Crow Quills weapon), and another wields one claw in each hand (the Crow Talons Weapon).

 

Combat Information

Attacks and Tips:

  • Don't be fooled by the Corvian Rapier Knight and it's darts. If you're lucky, you'll only get hit by one dart, and it doesn't do much damage. The problem is if all hit at once. His aim is very precise, and unless you roll (or hide behind a wall), you'll get hit by four darts at once, meaning almost insta-kill in less than one second. Stamina management is the key.
  •  Can be lured with Alluring Skulls. They'll be only affected if you aggro them first (e.g. Shooting them with projectiles, stand within their range of vision), otherwise they'll remain unaffected. (Still testing behavior with Aural Decoy)
  • Both variants are affected by Rapport.
  • Both variants can be backstabbed.

 

Notes & Trivia

  • Can possibly be parried mid-combo by simply attacking them for counter damage, and it can lead to a riposte, though it seems that it can only be done on the Crow Talon variant (confirmation requiered).
  • The player can later acquire the same weapons, allowing to replicate some of these enemies moveset.

      Overpowered. Nigh-unavoidable darts that almost insta kill you, timings on attacks that perfectly coincide with rolling moves, has poise, way too much health.

        I might be wrong, but does the knight with the crow quills have an attack that's exactly the same as the special Ricard's Rapier weapon art? Could this have lore implecations?

          Does killing the two knight in the house drop 102 large titanite shard per kill or is it just me? And with irithyll straight sword the claw one is so easy to kill. Literally unlimited soul right now.

            u can get their weapons but u are very disadvantaged in moveset. its like with lothric greatsword or black Knight greatsword. u see the npc do crazy moves and Combos but u can do no more then just swing it from left to right and some lame Overhead attacks

              It's also really dumb that you can't get their armor it's so badass and like since they are so similar to break knight's why can't we get Corvian knight armor?

                I know I can beat them, I already beat them, but, the only thing I don't like about dark souls is that human like enemies are doing things which we can not do. A wolf enemy is sprinting and almost flying? Why use a wolf then? Why not use a magical sprinting abomination? A corvian knight is jumping like crazy and hit from two miles silmuntanously with huge damage. Boreal outrider knights are special and non spawning and optional. I can accept them. I can beat them all yet I find this stupid. Make them some freaky creature then ok. But if a knight can hit me with its sheald while I'm standing behind, I want to be able to do the same thing with one or another way. If they can do, I need to be able to do same thing, then that feels fair. Exceptions are accepted which are also in dark souls 1 and 2. But man these human like creatures doesn't have spine. What the ***** are those movements I don't know. If it is possible for them then why not for me? They increased the only thing I don't like in souls game to make the game harder. You cant tell me git gud because I can beat them already. But if I was a corvian kight then oh god! I would dominate the world in two minutes. This means I don't actually beat them. They are stupid. I beat morons and that doesnt feel rewarded at all.

                  Here's hoping the set is in the next DLC. Seriously, the Corvian Knight set looks better than any of the actual sets that we got.

                    Cancerous enemy. Almost as bad as Outrider Knights with the infinite stamina wombo combo nonsense. Dishes out a *****load of damage with fast successive attacks. Luckily they can be stunlocked.

                      Hyperclerics eat these guys up. Even on NG+, an SL 120 hypercleric can dish out 3k+ damage fully-buffed, which will one-shot them. They were actually easier to get by than the weaker but more numerous regular mobs for my hypercleric.

                        You can parry them with ANY weapon If you manage to hit them while they are attacking or in the midst of their combos. Weapons with long range or fast moveset work very well in this case. Both the claw and sword variants can be parried (although the sword one is a bit more difficult). Can be parried with regular shields as well. Tested on the Claw Knight and Sword Knight encounter under the bridge and near the graveyard from Corvian Settlement bonfire.

                          Will somebody give me advice on how to kill these things? Like holy ***** I can only get a couple hits in before they start up another combo and kill me

                          • 29 Oct 2016 04:35  

                            Has anybody else been able to parry them by simply attacking? I've somehow managed to do it using both my Brigand Twindaggers and Crow Quills without a single parry tool even equipped.

                              They drop Large Shards, Sharp Gems (uncommon) and Chunks (very rare).
                              I've farmed the one who's hanging under the bridge next to the bonfire "Covian Settlement".
                              My strategie was 2H the Millwood Battle Axe, activate Warcry, drop down, two R1's and a follow up with an R2. This will "parry" him for a riposte.
