Grave Wardens are an Enemy in Dark Souls 3.
Grave Warden Background
Grave Wardens are found in the Cemetery of Ash and Firelink Shrine, the game's beginning areas, and as such are rather weak. They wear dark-coloured robes and cloaks, appearing sluggish and disinterested in their surroundings. They wield various weapons, including: Light Crossbows with Exploding Bolts, Broken Straight Swords, Shortswords, Spears, and Bandit's Knives (only in the Untended Graves).
Some Wardens appear docile and listless; they sit on the pathway, or lean against the mountainous walls adorning the graveyards and the arena. However, they will still attack the player once in proximity, and mindfulness is advised.
Grave Warden Combat Information
Grave Wardens wielding weapons such as spears or swords will promptly attack the player with the weapon's basic moveset. For instance, those armed with a shortsword will slash or lunge at the player, while light crossbow enemies will simply fire bolts. Their attacks and behavior are identical to many of the enemies found in the next area, but they usually have lower health and defenses, making them a good warm-up for the High Wall of Lothric.
Grave Warden Notes & Trivia
- These enemies are part of the tutorial area. They are ideal targets for new players who are unfamiliar with the game's mechanics.
- Judging by the fact that these enemies drop the Cleric's Sacred Chime, they were likely once clerics themselves before going Hollow.
- Not to be confused with the much stronger Cathedral Grave Warden found in the Cathedral of the Deep and the Untended Graves.
