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.

      Some notes about the spear-wielding versions of these guys... Spear hitbox comes out very early so parrying them is ass. Siderolling doesn't work very well because of the nonexistent recovery, they can just shieldbash you during recovery. If they walk up on you when you're at a wall it's actually possible for you to get clipped inside of them, which is very bad because they will continuously shieldbash you and your attacks will whiff them. Drop rate on long spear is really high. I got three of them in 40 minutes off the one by Emma.

        Okay, but what are the drop rates/chances of dropping items? This wiki is terrible about being informative.

          At first they're you're enemy, then they become your dance partner, as you both spin around each other with raised shields, fishing for backstabs and openings.

            My first character got the lothric straight sword after 3 rounds of farming. Second character rolls around. Been 30 runs boys. I have 4 full sets of armour but no sword...

              For Lothric Castle the greatsword red eye variety also drop lightning gems and the spear/greatshield red eye variety also drop refined gems

                High Wall ones are pretty good enemies for practice parrying against straight swords, given they deal low damage (in comparison to the rest of the game), and the fact they use the Lothric Knight Sword.

                  The normie knights at High Wall of Lothric can also drop an ember. Just gone one at the Tower on the Wall Knight.

                    Not to be a whiner; but can we get rid of the move where the Greatsword ones can take about 12 freaking steps before dealing ~1000 damage with an R2?

                      The one next to lothric castle bonfire is the best way to farm souls... in ng+ he drops 10k souls with symbol of avarice and the +3 ring and he is just sitting 5 meters away from the bonfire...of course it is easier with casters.. I two shot him with sunlight spear reload and repeat.. takes me 5 to 7 seconds to do it.. could work with other spells too I guess

                        Greatshield links misspell Lothric (as Lothic), so use this link or correct the link (by adding a R) to get to the page.

                          I’ve killed about 30 of these chumps with 477 item discovery, and not one sunlight medal. I’m mostly killing the one right by the sunlight statue/altar. Those are the right ones, right?

                            They were my bane, in my first playthrough (along with the *****ing Jailers) but eventually I got good enough with parrying....now they're my *****es
