Combat Information

  • It is best to sprint and roll to avoid the arrows from their Greatbows, or take cover behind the environment.
  • Blocking is not advised against their Greatbow as you'll be pushed back and likely fall down.
  • A good idea to deal with them is to also use a Greatbow of your own to harrass them from a far distance.
  • Attacks deal Thrust, Standard and Lightning Damage.
  • Weak to Dark, Frost and Thrust.
  • Resistant to Standard, Slash, Strike, Fire, Lightning, Poison/Toxic and Bleed.
  • Parrying them is effective when they swing horizontally.
  • There is a powerful red-eyed version in Anor Londo to the right of the other two Silver Knights at the top of the stairs.
  • Immune to Rapport.

Notes & Trivia

  • The three Silver Knights in the room with paintings before Pontiff Sulyvahn do not respawn when killed.
  • Despite wielding Silver Knight Straight Sword and Silver Knight Spear as seen in Dark Souls I, they cannot be obtained.

      This game has been out for a while so it's probably common knowledge, but has any one else noticed the odd glitch regarding the spear wielding silver knight at the Anor Londo bonfire, on the stairs? When the spear knight comes down the steps, and begins his long range spear charge animation, if you angle your camera down so you aren't looking at him, his spear charge won't come straight to you down the steps. Rather, the game will make his charge go more horizontal, over your head, as if he were standing on a flat surface and not an angled surface. Depending on how far up the steps he was when he initially charged, he can take a bit of fall damage upon landing. It's pretty easy to get behind him after he lands too, since he's stunned after falling. I wonder why From never fixed this...

          Seen people discussing why these Silver Knights are hostile to use and not the Deacons or going after Aldrich.
          Judging from the Red-eyed Silver Knight and the noises they make when they die and also their black blood. Sadly, I think these guys got corrupted by Aldrich or the Deacons or something...it makes sense as the last force of Anor Londo to defend it from EVERY kind of outsider.
          They either got corrupted or FromSoft got lazy. I'm betting on the latter because usually there would be a cryptic message hinting this but there's none.

          Also notice how the ones in Irithyll before Pontiff are guarding the Manor and disappear when they die as the real Silver Knights did in DS1 (while the other ones after Sulyvahn don't disappear) perhaps these Silver Knights are the non corrupted ones and are there to fight off Sulyvahn and his forces (noticed how there's dogs on patrol and no Pontiff Knights)
          That's my theory.

                  I don't have any problem with difficult or challenging enemies, but I'm sorry, I have to call bull*****on these guys. I roll so I'm literally behind the one with the long pike on the staicase at Anor Londo but STILL get hit by his charge AND lose more than half of my HP. I dodge the one with the sword and end up positioned so my shoulder is almost touching him and the 12 foot arc of my curved greatsword misses him entirely. What a load of crap. The further I get in this game the more challenging and difficult turn to cheap and unfair.

                    The greatbow knight, just before the elevator spiral staircase, switches to spear and shield when in melee range.

                        After about 10 hours of grinding with 350+ Item discovery I have gained 4 proofs, one was from one of only 4 Darkmoon Summons I got...I think From nerfed the drop rate and still has not truly fixed auto-summons.

                          Spear Dude will Fly off the Stair case, land behind or in front of you and take about an 8th of damage after prompting his charge and then running away from him and getting him off camera it's actually kinda funny =D
