Ascended Winged Knight Enemy Description

  • Winged Knights with actual, functional wings. They wear golden armor.
  • They have the same variants as the normal knights; Halberd and Twin Axes
  • They can be found atop the roof directly opposite to the room with the Twin Princes. From the Grand Archives bonfire, use the elevator, go right then circle left to reach the roof.

 

Ascended Winged Knight Combat Information

 

Ascended Winged Knight Notes & Trivia

  • Killing all of the Ascended Winged Knights nets a Titanite Slab, but only one per playthrough.
  • Drops Large Titanite Shards, Titanite ChunksBlessed Gems, and their respective weapons.
  • Using the Shield of Want, Symbol of Avarice, and Covetous Silver Serpent Ring, repeatedly killing the three knights can net you souls at a very fast rate. After 2-3 runs you can buy enough upgrade materials to take a weapon from base strength to +9.
  • The trio in the Grand Archives are great for soul farming.  One fast and low risk strategy is to attune Hidden Body and Rapport and equip the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring (or use Spook, though it is cumbersome to keep casting). From the Grand Archives use the elevator, go right then circle left to reach the roof.  Run up the stairs and head slightly left near the doorway to the building. This will trigger to the trio to drop down, once they trigger, cast Hidden Body.  They will land and you should be between the group of 2 on one side and the single Knight on the other side. Cast Rapport right away on one of the two grouped together before the roaming one walks off and they will start fighting. Depending on your placement and timing, this will typically trigger the single knight to join the fray as well. If the single knight doesn't join, you can cast a spell to lure him over to the two knights that are fighting. Refresh Hidden Body and watch the trio destroy each other. Keep up Hidden Body and re-cast Rapport on the knights as needed. Once the knights have killed each other and only one is left, re-cast Rapport on him and you can freely attack him with your weapon to finish him off.  If you are having troubles getting the third knight to join the fight,  then just let the two duke it out together, finishing off whichever one wins. Then, cast Hidden Body and Rapport the single knight, freely attacking him with your weapon to kill him. Then, cast Homeward or use your Coiled Sword Fragment to start over. 
  • An easy strategy is to simply walk straight up the long stairway until you reach the final arch before the tower the knights drop down from. Carefully walk forward while watching the top of the tower and as soon as they jump down, back up to behind the arch. Slowly creep up towards the double axe knight. If done correctly, only he should aggro you and you can lead him down the stairway to fight him alone (if he's too close to the other halberd knight just hit him with a throwing knife or similar item). Once he's dealt with, go up that same stairway and fight the halberd knight in front of you. As long as you don't get too close to the third knight on your left he will not aggro (if you're worried about accidentally aggroing the third Knight just bait the second knight down the stairs like the first one). Finally finish off the lone third knight.
  • For melee builds, the best strategy is to immediately rush to the stairs on the right side of the roof, then wait for the twin axes-wielding Knight to distance himself from the other two. He is the only one that patrols the area, so it is recommended that you take him out first to avoid being swarmed. Like with regular Winged Knights, it is recommended that you keep close distance when fighting them while constantly moving to their side.
  • Using a greatbow, it's possible to lure each Knight one by one to the area at the bottom of the stairs. Fire the greatbow from the first dome roof, starting from the right most Knight. Once hit, the Knight will jump down and approach the archway to the stairs. From there, lure it again with a spell/bomb/knife and it will come down the stairs to fight.
  • I've found a good strategy is to rush immediately into the interior of the tower at the lowest entrance. The Knights will jump down once you get inside, and the double-axe wielder will begin patrolling from the left (once you've turned around and are facing back out the door). I like to cast Spook, or you can use the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring, and walk out of the building and backstab the right-most halberd knight. With a decent weapon you can dispatch this Knight reasonably quickly, in time to meet the axe wielder as he comes around. Once he has been defeated, recast spook and backstab the other halberd Knight and fight him in much the same way as the others. No luring required and you get clean 1-on-1 fights. The only downside I've found, is that if you get unlucky and die, it's quite hard to regain your souls without them leaping down onto your head and ganging up on you. 
  • Onyx Blade decimates these Knights. Use the Hornet Ring and bait their slow moves, circle back, backstab = win. Symbol of Avarice, Covetous Silver Serpent Ring +3, Mendicant's Staff and Shield of Want combo nets you 75,816 souls PER Knight on NG+.
  • The Ascended Winged Knight likely pays homage to Father Mozgus' band of executioners.

      The strategy section doesn't mention it, but they don't aggro if you approach the tower by going around the right side. If you go around just enough to pop them and then back up slightly, you should be able to aggro them one at a time with little problem. As long as you don't circle backwards too far, you have plenty of room to dispatch them one at a time.

          The ones with halberds can get immediately into the large spinning attack sometimes. Like no charge, not even a tenth of a second reaction time.

            2 Questions. 1st is this the best soul farming spot in the game to get the most amount of souls? (If so how long would it take to get to the max soul level by farming them ? Plz let me know i am trying to get to that level, and wanna know if it is do able in a couple of Days. "Like atleast
            in 2 weeks of farming them to get to that level. )

            2nd question. If this isn't the most reliable way to get to the max level as fast as possible, than plz tell me what or where i should go or do, to farm enough to get to the max level the fastest way possible.

              Noob question here. Can I beat them with a faith build, sunlight ss+4 (want the slab for the +5) Spirit crest tree shield? They get so in frenzy sometimes like damn boi, what stamina, poise is this? :O

              • Anonymous

                the winged knights on the roof in grand archives give me only 17'550 per kill. does this happen to you guys too or do you still gain 33'000 souls per kill?

                  Do they have to be able to swing their 2-shot stunlock death combos in about 1/3 the time it takes for a roll animation to start? It at least feels like

                    Even with wings, I'm just surprised that they can fly. If they stored less souls in their body, I reckon they could fly freely.

                      If you dont have rapport, just use +9 deep dagger with hornet ring is enough to kill esch of them in 2 backstap(1293 dmg) which is easy since they have slow attack and recover animation, plus you usually have shield of wants(100%physical defense and weapon skill) so you can just shield up and circling around or use dagger WA to dodge.

                      • >I use rapport on one of the knights
                        >He and every other knight immediately turn around and beat the **** out of me
                        >Get trapped in a small space with 2 of them
                        >Die

                        • The Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring helps if you're looking to just get through or get the slab, because they seem to forget about you pretty easily to resume their post/patrol. Masking your sounds makes it pretty easy to get up on one, attack the back, then run enough away that they just lose sight of you.

                            My grind strategy with utmost efficiency:

                            Equipment: Rapport, scholar ring, sage ring, lingering dragoncrest ring, silver serpent ring, Pyro flame, mendicant staff, Dragonslayer greataxe, shield of want, symbol of avarice

                            1. When you reach the building, run directly to the third knight (the other 2 should not aggro you)
                            2. Rapport 3rd knight (spell should end just after he hits the ground) (easier with sage ring)
                            3. Rapport the other halberd knight quickly, so he starts fighting with the twinaxe guy
                            4. Switch pyro flame to shield of want
                            5. Quickly kill the first knight you Rapported (1 backstabbing + 2x WA with dragonslayer greataxe works best for me)
                            6. the moment you land the finishing blow, switch your axe to mendicant's, so you get maximum value (avarice + covetous + shield + staff)
                            7. If you did things right, 2 knights should die at generally the same time, giving about 70k souls
                            8. Kill the last one standing with any method you see fit (usually twinaxes)
                            9. Teleport to bonfire
                            10. Repeat
                            11. Moneybags ahead

                              Quick Farming tip: Equip SoA, CSSR+3, Mendicant's Staff, SoW and Pyro glove. Run halfway out on roof, let 2 knights jump down, cast rapport on the one with twinaxes, let them fight a bit, switch to staff (mendicant's) cast crystal soul spear to speed things along while they're aggro is on each other. After they die go to the one off to the side with a halberd, cast rapport, switch to staff and cast CSS until dead, use coiled sword fragment to return to Grand Archives bonfire. Repeat.

                                They aren't hard at all to kill, farmed something like 10 million souls on these big bois. Just fight them melee, at range, or right up backstab them.

                                  Farming strat- Just run half way out on the roof and run back to the top of the stairs to let them drop, rapport twinaxe, and immediate go left and get into range of solo halberd, rapport him, then backstab to death while the other two duke it out, then finish off the winner of the battle - 225k souls in under 2 minutes NG+1

                                    If you are like me and only play PvE with no soullevel cap and want to farm these guys, here are some tips. Get a Dagger with Dark Infusion and 60 in all stats. Equip slumbering dragoncrest ring, hornet ring and Silver serpent ring. Left hand shield of want right hand Dark Dagger and Medicants staff. I'm currently on NG+6 and a +9 Dark Dagger is able to twoshot them with two backstabs. Rinse and repeat and hafe fun.

                                      Does anyone know how many souls they give on NG+7? I'm on NG+, and with silver serpent +3, the shield and avarice they give 63k souls each. I also don't have a mendicant staff yet

                                        Secret; if you have at least 30 faith and use the "prayer" gesture close to these winged knights, for 30 sec, you will be lifted by them to a secret area with Gertrude and unique dialouge plus the winged ring, boosts jumping distance.

                                          Too easy, i mean they are ascended and all thats new is attacks from the sky (and the sick pimp armor), hurray... all it takes to defeat them is just rolling a couple of times waiting for the pillar of light to come and backstabing... no grapple attack, no quick attack. smh disappointin.

                                            Pyromancer farm build: sacred flame with swamp ring, witch ring, fire clutch. Hold right hand mendicant staff (Dark Edge or Soul Greatsword), left hand flame and shield of want as secondary Use sacred flame twice, fast switch to the shield, then use Dark Edge/Soul GS to finish him off. Repeat two more times.

                                                Great for Farming Souls, there are issues that it can cause glitches when you're using Rapport. Kinda risky without the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring and I'm not even using Hidden Body spell because I'm conserving FP.

                                                  Rush into the building, wait for them to drop down, cast Hidden Body, cast Rapport on the Halberd knight to the left, make sure you have the Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring equipped, then run away to spectate from a safe distance. It's fun to put a bet on which knight comes out victorious. In my farming runs, Twinaxes usually wins the fight and resumes his patrol, though it does occur that Halberd beats him. And in rare cases they die at the same time when one uses Divine Pillars. It is possible to get the furthest Halberd to join as well, though that relies on sheer luck. Be careful when Halberd wins, because sometimes he will end up closer to his Halberd friend then he originally was. Attacking the surviving Halberd may therefore aggro the other one.

                                                    Rapport is going to be your best friend when farming them. Have 2 fight each other and take out the weakened one. Rapport final one and take him out before he turns hostile. Easy farming.

                                                      Help! I've spent the last hour farming these guys in NG+ for souls to level up and buy Titanite scales. I think I might have a problem.

                                                        Between about NG through NG+++: Dark Clutch Ring, Hornet Ring, Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring, Covetous Silver Ring, Dark Dagger. Run up the stairs and to the left behind the solo knight. Thanks to the Dragoncrest ring, he won't even notice you behind him. Just casually walk up behind him, stab his butt, one-shot the guy. Wait a moment for axebro to wander around the corner, OHKO-butt-stab the second halberd knight, then run right up to the axebro and ruin his day, too. None of them ever even react to you before they've been stabbed and one-shot. Once you reach around NG+4 or so, the setup can't OHKO them anymore, so just bring any dark weapon to smack their butt as they get up from being stabbed. Assuming your STR/DEX/INT/FTH are all in the 50-60 range, Dark Exile Greatsword should easily deal enough damage with a normal attack to carve that last bit of health out until around NG+7. At NG+8, throw a Deep Protection on before going in. The extra 5% should keep the above paragraph working. Around NG+9 to about NG+11, Deep Protection and Sacred Oath before going in. Around NG+12 and NG+13, Sacred Oath and Power Within. Don't bother with Deep Protection, as it's only a 5% damage buff and doesn't stack with Power Within, which is 20%. Around NG+14 or 15, you might actually have to, GASP, use a HEAVY attack with Exile to finish them off! About time. Using varying strengths of heavy attacks with Exile should be able to carry this method up to around NG+17 or 19 before even the heavy attack won't fully take care of their health, at which point you simply tack on one more normal attack.

All 3 will drop down and wont aggro, the third one with the axes will patrol around let him get close (or aggro him with a bow/knives) and you can fight him without the others aggroing, rince and repeat.

                                                              My Strategie to kill all three of them relatively easy is: Run to the place they are at when you reach the gateframe to the roof they are at, run through the gateframe and run until you reach the middle of the roof (not the actual middle meaning the tower with the open door, if you go in there you are pretty much screwed!!) after you reached the middle immediately back through the frame and run down the stairs to the doorframe halfways. They will now drop down. One of the Knights (the one with the twin axes) will always run around in circles across the roof. Let that one pass. After that one has passed the spiral staircase leading up the tower in the middle, grap your hardest critical weapon and another strong weapon ( in my case it´s my Sharp Dagger +10 and my Sharp Uchigatana +10 or my Ringed Knight Paired Greatwords) and SNEAK up to the one standing right infront of you using the Slumbering dragoncrest ring, Spook or just slightly pushing your Controller button up (as long as your going along the inner side of the Wall he won´t notice you) and backstap him. Depending on the Damage you deal roll around him when he attacks (all his attacks, even the "Divine Pillars of Light" Miracle can be easiely avoided through rolling. For dodging the Miracle you don´t need to roll in a specific way, just roll around in any way you like, but rolling backwards is what i recommend to get a bit away from him so you have time and space to regain your stamina) and backstab him twice. If he is not dead after two backstabs, run down the stairs immediately after you knocked him down with the second backstab as fast as you can, because the twin axe wielding Knight will have finished his first route and come from behind (the Kight you attacked shouldn´t follow you if you ran fast enough, he will return to his previous position after a while). Once the Twin Axe Knight has passed again rinse and repeat until the first halberd whielding Knight is down ( All of the three knights have a spin attack, which can be avoided by rolling far away from him. You can see them starting the Spin when they are holding their weapon far behind their back and hold in for a moment. THE SPIN ATTACK OF THE HALBERD KNIGHTS HAVE A MUCH FURTHER REACH THEN THE HALBERD IS ACTUALLY LONG!) After the First Halberd Knight is down, wait for the Axe Knight to return and let him pass the spiral staircase and then run after him and do as the Halberd Knight (Just without the part of running down the stairs :D ). You want to let him pass the Staircase to prevent the last Winged Knight from noticing you and joining the fight as well. You don´t need to sneak up on the axe Knight, run up to him. Once he is dead focus on the last knight. If you run up on him or sneak up on him doesn´t really matter, but i prefer sneaking up so you can get the first damage in at him before the real fight starts.

                                                                Rapported is good as well they fight each other instead of you so in this case it would be just as safe. If there's one left you can use horent ring and the Flynn ring( if you use this take all your gear off sense you won't be fighting)

                                                                            I've found the Irithyll Rapier to be very good against these knights. Frostbite procs on two (2) consecutive hits. This also allows followup hits to do more damage (neg abs), as well as taking off a chunk of their health, and they are weak to thrust to boot. Stamina debuff doesn't really seem to affect them, and haven't played around with the weapon art much, but it might? stagger them. Regular flurry attacks do not stagger, but it's the fastest proc.

                                                                            • Anonymous

                                                                              A (somewhat) easy way to deal with these as a melee build is to go clockwise (to the left), first to the lone halberd knight, then the axe knight, then the other halberd knight. This way you will face the knights one at a time (word of warning, running after the knights have landed may attract the attention of the other halberd knight).

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                tbh I feel like Spook, Aural Decoy, and Rapport are just overkill. I just move toward the back of the central tower near the bottom of the curved stairway and approach the entrance to the tower very carefully. Once I hear them jump, I quickly move back toward the curved stairway, moving past it toward the back of the tower (sometimes I even hide IN the tower). This sets the twin axe knight on patrol, and you can fight him 1-on-1 on the rear portion of the dome, or lure him to the area with the Estus Shard. Then you just have to back-stab one of the two halberd knights and lead them away from their buddy, kill them, and then take on the last dude.

                                                                                It should also be noted that like 90% of your attacks should be back-stabs. It's typically pretty easy to move around these guys without getting hurt, especially when they do their flying attacks or their Pillars of Light. The biggest danger is the halberd users' spin attack, which can easily erode a shield user's stamina and catch a roll-master with the final swing, since the attack terminates using the full range of the halberd.

                                                                                We're all counting on you, good luck.

Use rapport, ignore him, use rapport on one of the other knights to the side, go back to the first Knight, either backstab or Black Flame till he's dead. And then rapport the Knight who survived on the other side and repeat. Takes about 1 minute from the first Rapport till they're all dead.

                                                                                  • Circle back? Terrible strategy. These guys are extremely vigilant and have infinite poise and stamina i.e they'll constantly hit you if you try to circle back. The halberd users are especially hard to beat.

Do the same for the second halberd knight afterwards. Then move to the double-axe wielder.

The halberd knights should die before they can attack if you keep at least approximately the maximum auto-aim distance. You will probably have to dodge the double-axe wielder's attack once after the second Great Soul Dregs cast.

In NG++ with Symbol of Avarice, Covetous Silver Serpent +3 and double Shield of Want I can get 83,397 souls per knight. That's 250,191 souls every run through! (If you're wondering about the double Shield of Want, as a melee class you can switch to the shield mid-attack, so you can hold the shield in one hand, your weapon in the other, and switch from the weapon you're using mid-attack so you can be holding two shields just before the knight dies. I know most people know this, but it's here in case someone doesn't.)

You can trigger them dropping down and lure the twin axe one out by back out towards where you came from and then go beside the stairs. You can hit him and back off when he attacks so you don't take damage.

I don't know how to insert the link into the wiki article but if someone else can do that it would be great

Run up to where they normally drop down. 2.) Immediately run back behind the arch to the stairs before they hit the ground. 3.) Target the double-axe wielding knight and kite him down the stairs with your ranged weapon. 4.) Beat his ass. 5.) Walk up and beat up the last two individually where they stand.

                                                                                                      Only the double-axe dude patrols around, so as long as you get him out of the way first, you won't get ganged up on unless you wander towards the third dude and aggro him.

                                                                                                            • Anonymous

Then you use Rapport on the one to the right, and then the one to the left. The one to left will start fighting the other one and you can kill the one to the right with zero hassle. :)

                                                                                                                The following takes a while, and I'm not proud to admit I did this, but it's pretty safe and just thought I would add it case someone else was having a hard time beating three of them in a row.On the roof where you lure them too, there is an opening in the back right corner that leads to a platform, from that platform you can drop to where you fought the three NPC's. Lure the winged knights one at a time, down to the opening and jump to the first platform. Usually, they will jump all the way down.From here there are a couple of options, you can either start using projectiles until you kill them. Or, you can wait till they are under you so you can get a high damage plunging attack. Then run away as fast you can back up to this spot (they will stay below) and do it again. Sometimes, they will walk into the building all the way to where the two handed lothric knight is standing. If this happens, it is possible to slowly walk up to them until you're behind for a critical. Run back outside the building (as this will aggro the lothric night as well), wait for them to reset and do it over again. If they reset in a manner that faces you, throw a projectile, run away and wait for them to reset again. They usually reset in a manner that will let you critical attack them without fear of aggro.Again, not proud I had to do this, but it was easy and safe and didn't require any estus.

In dark souls 2 they did a thing were they gave stuff to players before their release of a dlc, and the last thing they gave was a weapon already in the game, but blue. Why not do the same with the golden weapons of the winged knights.
