      One strategy I found is that if you get his attention, run to the ladder, but then keep your head poked up so he attacks you, you can make fly over the edge, causing major fall damage, he only climbs back up when your not on the ladder though.

        i was doing a 'speedrun' of the main content and i did it without dying too many times, I died maybe 7 times (noob). I finished the game and decided to try archdragon peak, i beat pretty much everything without a problem (even nameless king) but when it was time for havel I died to him 49 times fun game

          He should be the real Havel, not a comrade, as he wields his weapon and his greatshield.
          I'm not 100% sure about this, but in the original game it is said that Havel was the only one who wielded a dragon tooth.

            Because Havel's character models is based off human "player" models, I tried using Acid Surge to break his equipment.

            Sadly, this did not work. In fact, this does not seem to work on any NPCs of any sort.

              If you have a pyromancer friend (or you are one), Profaned Flame can be used to knock down Havel. Doesn't do a lot of damage but gives you roughly 3 seconds to do whatever while Havel is still down and is getting back up. Havel is also unable to get away from the spell in time when cast and therefore will always be hit if locked on.

                If you're having trouble fightng Havel as a melee build, remember Dunkey's words of advice: "Try a ranged battle". More specifically, just whittle his HP with a crossbow and roll away when he starts swinging (more often than not, he'll go into a combo, giving you more time to heal or get some distance).

                    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.
