Lothric Knights are a type of Enemy in Dark Souls 3.

 

Enemy Description

Once famed and feared for their drake cavalry, the Lothric Knights fought bravely until slain, sworn faithful as one of the monarch's three pillars; for they who raise Lothric's banner are still to be feared, the cut of their blades as sweet, sudden and merciless as it ever was. These virtuous warriors have yet to cease patrolling Lothric, and will test any fighter's mettle and resolve.

 

Lothric Knights can be found from the beginning to the end and are most dangerous when their visors are raised. Blue coaks and royal armor announce the fiercest knights - felons and ill-doers - tread warily - as should any not abiding the rule of the three pillars.

 

They are proficient in sword arts, and can defend and attack in equal measure.

 

Combat Information

  • Will use a Shield Bash if fought in close proximity and when rolling behind them.
  • Breaking their guard can be effective, particularly against the greatshield variant.
  • Blue Cloak variants will increase their sword's attack with Blessed Weapon.
  • Red Cloak variant using Lothric's Knight Greatsword may buff their sword with spell giving additional Magic damage, which makes their weapon covered with crystals.
  • They are weak to Hollowslayer Greatsword, Frost and Lightning.
  • Resistant to Physical, Fire and Bleed.
  • Can be drawn by Alluring Skulls.
  • They are affected by the Rapport pyromancy.
  • Vulnerable to parrying, setup parries are especially effective due to their constant attacking.

        I remember the first time i saw one of the royal knights close to the Vordt boss fight. Took me over 3 tries just to get past the first two normal knights consistently, only to get my ash kicked by the royal guard over 5 times...
        Now every knight is a piece of cake, and i use the royal knight as a quick way to get souls. Good times, man.

          anybody know the greatshield drop rate? is it just as low as the armor piece?
          if so, then i'll have to spend another 2hours farming the spear ones

            What an awesome concept - literally heals itself WHILE you are landing hits. As if it wasn't OP enough already. This game just keeps getting better and better. Maybe the next boss will add HPs when I attack instead of subtracting them. SMH

              Somebody nerf the *****ers with the greatswords. Bull*****hitboxes, Bull*****unstaggerability, tankyness and speed that make Oceiros weep, and healer you can't kill without having 70% of your health gone in one hit.

                I'm kinda suprised and mostly sad you cannot get the blue royal guard variant of their armor. It very much should be in the game.

                  In NG, the Lothric Knight Greatsword wielding, red caped Lothric Knight next to the Sunlight altar has between 1500 and 1510 health (killed him using Poison Spores and he died on the 1510 tick).

                    The captain10 Jul 2016 17:29  

                    Dunno if anyone's noticed but in the Dancer chamber with the Priestess there are two other chairs beside her, assuming for the other two "pillars of lothric" the head sorcerer and the head knight. Anyone got any clues to who these might be?<br/>I like to believe the blue knight is the captain as he's the only one of his kind.And maybe the Logan Scroll Sorcerer in profaned is the Head sorcerer, or maybe it's even the crystal sage or sorcerer npc from Archives.

                      Grand Archives Lothric Knights can buff their weapons with Crystal magic Weapon, as opposed to the Blessed Weapon of their earlier counterparts. This may be due to their proximity to the scholars and their studies.

                        While farming for a Lothric Knight Greatsword I had the greatsword knight drop a lightning gem, if that's worth noting on the loot as well.

                          Lothric Knight UGS PVE parry18 Apr 2016 14:44  

                          While it is possible to parry most of the knight's attacks, they do have one slow overhead attack that can't be parried (tried several times with a parrying dagger, and could only ever get a partial). This makes for a very challenging enemy, seeing as the attack that -can- be parried is super fast, often causing you to react too early/late due to the threat of the slow overhead attack. It's strange that every single attack of a cathedral knight UGS can be parried, whilst this one has one that can't be.<br/><br/>Maybe I just need to git gud, but I'm pretty certain of these facts.
