        It is worth noting that the Havel Knight on the roof at Great Belfry is (or at least seems to be) Immune to Toxic and Poison. Threw ten dung pies at him with no Fruition, and got three riposte's with a rotten pine reason soaked weapon in on him without causing him to get the debuff. If he isn't immune then he's sure close to it.

            I just use a UGS with thrusting charged heavy and stunlock him against the dragon. I took literally zero damage.

              He seems to have somewhat unique AI in that he has phases, like a boss. At about 60-70% health, he will use his shield's skill, then two-hand his tooth. After this, he will never, ever one hand it, although he will, amusingly, try to block with the tooth, generally getting guard broken after only a couple of hits. His lightning absorption will also drop dramatically when he uses his shield's skill (great time to use miracles or other lightning projectiles), but it will return to normal when the skill ends. Also, if you interrupt his use of the skill, he will immediately try again, and again, and again, until he succeeds, which can be exploited.

                r1 spam from light weapons stun locks him. Which is hilarious considering he's Havel. Just don't mess up the timing because his hyperarmor frames are incredibly long. Gotta get the jump on him before he starts up his attacks.

                  So you can easily cheese this guy right if you're with a friend.

                  I actually defeated him through summon first which is rare. (I got his shield and tooth however.) He is highly resistant to backstabs but if you and your pal are close, his targeting system just plain breaks. Whoever is closer is automatically agroed, so if you want to, you and your buddy can take turns backstabbing him and there is one point where he literally stands still until attacked. (Which is how I defeated him later.)

                    Kinda a lame technique, but if you sneak up behind him without argoing, you can pelt him with 5 or 6 dung pies and he still won't argue. Takes him out in about a minute or so.

                      I parried him a couple of times until he got to half health and he tried to cast the buff from his shield which made him easy to backstab, he tried to do this everytime time he recovered from the backstab which made him easy to cheese.

                        A decent strategy i found was to parry him constantly until he two handed the dragon tooth, then i recommend using something that will deal alot of damage to him in one shot, i personally used a +5 dragonslayer spear and used it's weapon skill and it finished him off fairly quickly.

                          Run away, Climb the ladder and don't stay too low. I was trying to make him climb and he plunged into the abyss.
