Creighton The Wanderer is a hostile NPC in Dark Souls 3.

 Creighton The Wanderer Information




  • On the long bridge towards the second bonfire in Irithyll of the Boreal Valley, attacking Sirris if you are summoned to her world as part of her questline.
  • Invades behind the Church of Yorshka bonfire, near a giant gravestone. Does not invade if you have already killed Pontiff Sulyvahn.



  • Souls: NG (8,000), NG+6 (102,000)
  • Weapons: Dragonslayer's Axe
  • Armor: After killing him both times, in Sirris' world and yours, the Mirrah Chain set will appear on the bridge where you fought him for the first time.


Combat Information

Creighton attacks very agressively, and will occasionally try to stagger the player with the Skill of his Dragonslayer's Axe. It also temporarily increases his attack and allows him to inflict damage through shields, so be extremely cautious when fighting him.

He will often retreat to heal with Estus if allowed, so using a Undead Hunter Charm on him before he has the chance to will greatly help in killing him faster. 

He also has 1 Divine Blessing.



  • Creighton the wanderer's return in Dark souls III subtely indicates that the Bearer of the Curse choose to kill Mild-mannered Pate and thus allowed Creighton to escape Drangleic.
  • Is using the Obscuring Ring in attempt to take the player by suprise.
  • Creighton was first introduced in Dark Souls II as part of a possible side quest, along with Mild Mannered Pate.
  • To obtain his armor set and axe, you must first kill him in Sirris' world, and then kill him again when he invades you near the giant tombstone past the Church of Yorskha bonfire. He will then drop his weapon. He can not invade you if you have already defeated the boss in the area so its recommend to proceed there immediately after assisting Sirris on the bridge. Then head back to the bridge where you helped Sirris. A corpse should be now lying on the middle of it, holding the armor set for you.

      This pisses me off, between the two of them it was CREIGHTON who canonically survived? The guy who fell into Pate's trap like a dumbass? Maybe they just didn't want two patches in DS3 at once? But i liked Pate as his own character, not just as a spiritual nod to patches... They totally could've made patches's storyline SO much cooler/funnier if they'd made a competition between the two. Maybe they end up asshole friends in one of the endings, maybe in one ending one disappears and is implied to have been taken out by the other? Though i guess it'd have to be pate that dies since Patches makes it to the ringed city? Though there isn't really any evidence that the ringed city is in the future, right? "A few trees appear when Filianore awakens!"? Ok... so maybe her illusion was covering them? Nobody assumed sunless Anor Londo was in the future when Gwyndolin's influence was removed... "everything's dust!"? Okay, the world is canonically reaching it's end at the start of our ashen adventure, maybe all the areas on the outskirts of the Kingdom of Lothric's boundaries are turning to dust? We see Lothric castle in the distance and Lothric castle is where "the lands of lords are converging", so maybe all the lands that are converging are all that's left of civilization and are PHYSICALLY being pulled towards Lothric (like entire pieces of land are moving towards a center, maybe has to do with tectonic plate movement?) while as everything on the OUTSIDE of this circle being pulled towards the center is just barren dust?

        Sirris is super weak, so you know what I did to destroy Creighton? Took my Refined Lothric Knight Greatsword and infinited him
        In case you're wondering the way to infinite thins with the LKGS is simple: fully charged 2 handed RT/R2, and then walk over to them and fully charged 2 handed RT/R2 again, repeat as many times as necessary, if done with enough time in between each attack it'll keep doing the thrust attack, and that attack knocks most enemies down, just keep repeating and their ass keeps getting put on the ground before they can even get up. Stamina is an issue though so a Chloranthy Ring and/or some Green Blossoms will certainly help, but as long as you can keep using it ASAP, you use it. I've infinite'd Havel before with this strat too, though Stamina is obviously an issue so he's gotten out of it because I backed up to regen Stamina.

          I highly recommend using some weapon that deals poison. It will it him alive, when I killed him was with poison dagger and a frostbite sword. Worked wonders.

            This son of a b**** INVADED me during the Twin Princes boss fight, killed Sirris, killed Orbeck and and let me fight the boss all alone after I finally killed him. Guess what happened then...I have no idea how, even after I've done all Sirris quest line and killed him several times, this b**** came back from the deepest hell to haunt me! So if you intend to summon Sirris for this boss fight be carefull.

              This guy... I've beat every hostile/invader npc and the last 3 or 4 bosses on the first attempt, mostly to my own surprise. But this guy, this guy has K'd my A about 5 times in a row now. I just don't get it lol. Must be Khama for backstabbing him for his armor in DS2 haha.

                I was invaded by him twice, and knocked off the edge of the cliff both times. After the second time, I couldn't get him to invade again, even after quitting and restarting the game. Finally I went to the bridge by the first Irithyll bonfire, and sure enough the body with his set was there. I took another look, and the Dragonslayer Axe was in my inventory already. I guess he fell off the cliff in the process of knocking me off - the axe was automatically given to me, and the items were placed on his body on the bridge. This might clear up why some people have had trouble getting him to invade after he kills you once...

                • This is the cheapest NPC in the game.30 Aug 2016 02:39  

                  He has boss like health. He chugs like a scrub. He uses undead hunter charms. AND WATCH OUT BECAUSE HE USES DIVINE BLESSINGS LIKE A SALTY LITTLE *****!!!

                  • Did he kill Priscilla ?20 Aug 2016 16:59  

                    The Church of Yorshka is at the exact place the painted world was before. And right next to the church, there is a giante tombstone. <br/>On this tombstone, there is a Corvian (who sometimes wield scythes to "imitate the master of the painted world") probably mourning the dead person.<br/>And guess what ? Creighton invade you right at this tombstone, wielding a DRAGONslayer's axe...<br/>Hmmmm Hmmm...

                      "It seems you have to be kindled for him to spawn here. The first time I got to the Church of Yorshka he spawned and I died. When I returned he didn't spawn until I used an Ember, and reloaded the area. " This is redundant. You need to be Embered for NPC Phantoms to invade you, so it's not only him. Please remove this redundant info.
