Havel Knight is an Enemy in Dark Souls 3.

 

Enemy Description

 

Combat Information

  • High defense.
  • Can use his Shield's Skill, making him able to tank hits and raising his defense, while forcing him to fat-roll.
  • Can switch to 2-handed.
  • Can be guard-broken.
  • His shield (in his hands) doesn't seem to have the stability it used to. It can be attacked with midweight weapons (in my case Butcher Knife) without having to use it 2-handed.
  • You can lure him to follow you down the ladder. That's your chance to chain some damage (mainly as a sorcerer) on him.
  • Make him fly! If you have weapons that can launch, such as black knight great sword or wolf knight great sword, you can keep him down by spamming these. Try parry if he doesnt two hand.

      Can be cheesed by going down the ladder and staying below which will for some reason make him jump down instead of going down normally and will almost always suicide off the cliff thanks to that (just happened to me)

        Easily died with sunlight spear once went two-handed weapon.<br/><br/>Chaos bed vestiges did more damage but I decided to use some lightning because ffxiii

        • weakness20 Jul 2016 09:39

          with good bleed/poison build you can kill him faster he get 524 on with hollow corvian scythe 46 bleed<br/>or get poison or toxic spell and he just have problem

          • Easy but tedious16 Jul 2016 04:08

            He is incredibly tedious to beat especially if you are a light melee build. He is very telegraphed, hence easy to predict. During his 1H phase, just circle around him and when he attacks role towards his right and get one hit and back away again. Rinse & repeat. After he loses about 25% of his HP, he'll use rock armour (or something) and go 2H on you. This part is harder because if he gets you, you'll get staggered and stunlocked and die. But to avoid that bait him to do the jump attack on you, when he does that roll towards his right and get a hit and move away again. DO NOT hit him when he is using a non-jump attack as he'll chain the hits and stunlock you. Do the same until he's dead. If you do this correctly, you'll beat him without taking even a hit, but it takes time for this to work, especially if your weapon has low damage. Do not try to get more than one hit either, he has incredibly high poise and kill you in retaliation.

              Just keep circling! You can take the first hit and if you keep circling you'll get behind him for the second. If you keep close and circling he won't try to use Perseverance either.

              • Is Havel giving you a hard time?06 Jul 2016 03:37

                If you're a Cleric you can use force to make him fall, don't forget your Ashen Estus. Just make him go to the two-handed phase so he doesn't blocks with his Greatshield & you'll be good. <br/><br/>- Make him fall once & he will survive with a little bit of hp.<br/>- He will climb up the stairs to wreck you<br/>- Spam force again once he climbs the ladder<br/>- Taunt<br/>- Win

                • If Havel falls to his death19 Jun 2016 01:01

                  If you manage to make him fall to his death, reload the area. His shield and Dragon Tooth will be waiting for you where he stood.
