Lothric Knight 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 blade 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.

      Shields : 4%
      Large Titanite Shard : 100%
      Titanite Chunk : 5%
      Ember : 2%


      100 kills (I died 6 times :/) (with Silver Serpent Ring +0, 275'000 souls)
      9 armor pieces (300 souls each)
      10 swords (500 souls each)

          Amazing to farm after defeating Vortd of the boreal valley. red knights give you about 300 souls and blue cloak gives you 1300 with coveteus silver ring. Using a claymore to 3 shot them at 2+ would take even less hits with higher reinforcement.

            They are not hard but annoying to fight against due to their high poise and instant switch between normal state and hyperarmor.

              They are not weak against lightning, thats actually their highest resistance. But dark works very well of course. Fire is ok as well

                "Lord Lothric may have been based on Berserk's Griffith"
                This has nothing to do with the subject of the article, the Lothric Knights, and his name isn't Lord Lothric, it's Prince Lothric. Can we ****ing stop making names up?

                  If someone is planing on farming Sunlight medal/Ember, go to the lothric castle bonfire, equip Great chaos fire orb with great swamp ring and witch's ring with all the stuff (SoA, Cgsr +2/3 Sage rapier, rusted coin) and 2-4 shot them

                    I'm pretty casul, I've only a few days of experience with dark souls 3 and I've honestly got to admit that I didn't see the fuss with these guys until lothric castle (which, then, it definitely made sense), albeit the ones in high wall are more along the lines of simply something you have to be cautious around, not try to go ham on it, because that's a good way to get yourself killed. They're actually really fun challenges that tests the player against a new enemy variant with a changed up moveset vs. the usual broken sword hollows and knife tossing hollows.

                    I like these guys, in other words

                      Coolest enemy in the dark dark souls series. Hell Artorias ain’t even as cool as these fellas.

                      They are only second to the Cathedral Knights though. They brawl like badasses.

                      Srs tho. Really cool enemy. The lore, the mettle they wear. Truly an awesome enemy.

                        Everybody gangsta until lothric knight takes his stance. Seriously though the thrust comes so fast it's not reflex but luck if you will dodge it.

                            My first encounter with them on the High Wall was devastating. On first seeing the knight I thought- oh this must be this games variant of the Black Knight from Dark Souls 1, and tried following my tried and true strategy of backstabs and parries. The moment the Knight lunged back and bashed his shield behind him, breaking my guard was when I realized just how naive I was. Being used to the slower and much weightier combat of DS1, I couldn't parry a single attack either lol.

                              The day I stopped expecting from enemies and creatures to behave with the same rules and limitations of a player character was the day I fell in love with these guys.

                              They do have infinite stamina, yes but they also have limitations like 1)no passive poise, 2)parriable VS the player which by that time in the game is a living arsenal of destruction(resins, infusions, magic, items of all kind, etc).

                                All the Lothric knight Weapons Scale with Dex, (except the crossbow), Winged knight weapons scale with Strength, Hundreds of Lothric knight corpses all over HW and LC, only 1 WK corpse at highwall, Conclusion, STR > DEX

                                  Even tho I killed the thousand of times, they are still my most hated enemies, Imo hardest knight except Outriders... But that makes them kinda cool... But the range of that WA thrust is pure bs cmon :D Also the fact that on the beggining of the game, damn you WANT to be that guy so much, but Mr. M made their armor super heavy, sword req. 18 dex, shield 18 str, so you just cry, coz you really can just run in armor and deserter pants acting like you look so dope XD

                                    My favorite thing to do is cosplay as a lothric knight with the war banner, with my two buddies and have a trio of lothric knights destroy everything and everyone
