      Don't think I've ever been killed by one, but the amount of times I've hit a wall while trying to fend one off and knocked myself off a cliff is painfully high.

        I don't know if this is the right page, but the skeleton at the beginning of the catacombs dropped a vertebra shackle. Did this happen for anyone else or just me?

          The headless ones will auto-parry when they are "blocking". Two-handed ultra weapons will still be unparryable, though. These "crownless parry kings" are a good way to test if an attack is parryable.

            Both Faron Greatsword and the Wolf Knight Greatsword do no act as blessed weapons. White eyed skeletons will still resurrect when using this weapon. These weapons do +20% damage vs. Abysal type enemies though.

              I was going through the catacombs to check for anything I missed before I headed into ng+, and was surprised that the headless falchion skels can parry and riposte. There wasn't a windup or anything, it just parried me

                Anyone else get parried by the headless, one-armed skeletons? Seems a bit silly to me, since they hardly have any stance change when they do.
