Moaning Knight

General Info
Health Souls Location Drops
???? 16,272 The Ringed City Blindfold Mask


Moaning Knight is an invading NPC in Dark Souls 3.

Moaning Knight Information

  • Can be killed.
  • Invades in the spiral tower protected by Darkeater Midir known as the Shared Grave.

 

Location

  • The Moaning Knight appears in the Ringed City DLC area, near the Shared Grave bonfire. He is after the bridge protected by Darkeater Midir inside the spiral tower. When entering the tower go left. You'll see a lizard. Going after the lizard will cause you to fall when the stairs collapse, where he will invade you shortly afterward. Video Location
  • He will invade your world regardless of whether or not you are embered.  If you decide to run from him, you will stand near the edge of the collapsed stairway.  You can easily kill him from the other side with bows, firebombs, etc, which will likely be necessary since he'll prevent you from resting at the nearby bonfire.  There are likewise multiple spots on the staircase where it is possible to knock him off with Wrath of The Gods, a backstab, or a kick, but beware as his weapon art can do the same.

 

Drops

  • Souls: NG (16,272), NG+ (??), NG++ (??), NG+3 (??), NG+6 (??), NG+9 (??)
  • Blindfold Mask

Combat Information

  • Use Morne's Great Hammer (RH) and Moaning Shield (LH).
  • Weak to Lightning Damage.
  • Should the fight enter the staircase, it would be wise to bring a spear class weapon or any weapon good for tight spots due to the narrowness.

 

 

Trivia

  • Judging by his equipment, the Moaning Knight appears to be a Knight of Carim. However, since he possesses and is named after The Moaning Shield, which is stated in its item description to be modeled on Eygon of Carim's sister, it is very likely Eygon, or perhaps another of his siblings.
  • The mask that the Moaning Knight drops appeared in Dark Souls II previously as the Black Witch Domino Mask, an item associated with Zullie the Witch, whose equipment can be found throughout the Ringed City and who is a phantom summoned by the Adjucator Giants.

      got currently problems with my internet provider, my internet disconnects randomly. So i was doing a playthrough in offline mode or otherwise i would resume to the main menu everytime my internet cuts off. Dont know if this is true for all invaders, but this guy did not invade when i was cut off the internet + offline mode. When my internet connection came back he instantly invaded (game was still in offline mode though).

          Cheesed this guy easily by using the Millwood Greatbow weapon art. Just wait near the tower entrance until he begins walking through one of the open corridors, then you can aim a well placed shot towards a wall; he will get near the arrow warily for a few seconds, then BOOM, arrow explodes, throws him off the ledge and u got ez souls. Top kek.

          Take into account that the arrows take a while to explode; there is also the time it takes for the arrow to reach and hit the wall and the speed of this guy walking, so factor that in if you wanna try this out. Use a 'Slumbering Dragon Crest' ring for best results, so he doesnt hear nor notice you as you move and position yourself around the stairs.

            he never wanted or atleast didnt believe that Irina could be a firekeeper ... we find last book in lothric castle that make Irina firekeeper last place of eygon questline, when u do this eygon finish his duty by helping u with dragonslayer after this u find him hollowed some where else (ringed city ) then u find him dead in the cell but he still didnt give Irina fire keeper mask ... he is a mad spirit or inavder as hollow so he come back to give u the mask or he is hollowed and come back to kill and when u kill him u see t he mask that he naver gave it to Irina ...... overall invading us was befor dying in the cell and the mask meant to be given to Irina . eygon was never meant to be bad . by help of us (if u dont be dark) we make Irina firekeeper and finish his duty i think he is best NPC i have ever knew and most powerful

              Tips to people having trouble beating him due to the limited area: Easiest way to kill him is to use Unfaltering Force boosted Force near the ledge as it'll throw him off LOL OR bait him outside and let Midir roast him (you can drop off the ledge on the other side to the cliff under you to be safe).

                This goes for all 3 Invaders in the dlc. If you have Judicator dead they wont spawn so, go to the purging monument spend that nice souls that it wants you to for the king's decree to revive Judicator and after that all 3 invaders will be spawning again. TLDR: Judicator has to be alive for the invaders to spawn.

                  He appeared for me under these conditions:
                  1) not embered
                  2) have only killed the twin dragon
                  3)spoke to Lapp and told him where the shrine is.

                  Spawned as soon as I fell down the hole by the lizard.

                    im almost 90% sure that it wont appear if you are invaded, same goes with any other npc in the dlc. ones you are walked past hem he wont reappear. this happened for me 2 times. one time i was invaded by someone and the second time because the invade glitch where the game wont notice you that you are invaded. other times where i wasnt embered and walked here he appeared normally so i HIGHLY recommend you not to be in ember mode if you want to make sure that he appears.

                      I cant get the moaning knight or any of the three npc invaders to show up, even when embered. I dont know if I messed anything up.
                      Met and killed the Judicator 3 times(Start area), swamp, and Humanity puzzle.
                      Pushed Midir down on the bridge
                      Killed dragonslayer armour(Or Ornstein?)
                      Opened the door to Halflight Boss but did not start the fight.
                      Anyone have any idea? Thanks.

                        I just accidentally cheesed the guy. Using the Millwood Greatbow I used the WA on the wall he just walked by and it blew him off the walkway

                          I believe this is actually the spirit of Morne. Maybe the reason that he drops the Blindfold Mask is that the mask belongs to Caitha, Goddess of Tears. She has a dark chime, so it would be quite fitting if she wore a mask to amplify its power.

                          Perhaps the tale of Morne and Caitha and the tale of Eygon and Irina parallel each other as a lot Dark Souls lore is rather cyclical. It's just a thought.

                              Just have him spawn, walk out into Midir's range. BLOCK fire (with a decent shield you take tiny chip damage). The dragon will kill him for you~ Or ya know, just push him off into the pit.... that works too.

                                I successfully avoided him the first time through this area, went through again and got killed by him, then after completing the DLC went back for the mask, and he's not spawning any more - running all up and down the tower, embered or not. This isn't a complaint at all, I just think it's interesting and I wonder what exactly the trigger is. Midir or Gael or both, I'm assuming, just wanted to give y'all a heads up that if you use dark and want the mask, you shouldn't wait too long to kill this NPC, unless I'm totally overlooking something.

                                  The Moaning Knight can't be anybody else but Eygon.
                                  In the ringed city we get invaded by Alva again. But pay attention: he's not named Alva anymore, he's just "Seeker of the Spurned".
                                  But we know it can't be anybody else but Alva, because he uses his weapons and armor and Alva was the Seeker of the Spurned after all.

                                  Its the same case with Moaning Knight. His name is forgotten. But it is Eygon!
                                  Yes, the hammer and the armor is standart issue weaponry of Carim knights.
                                  BUT! The shield is EXCLUSIVE to Eygon. The shield is made after his sister, if description of the shield to be believed, so only Eygon can have it.
                                  So it is 100% him.

                                  What's even weirder - the mosquito creep mentions Eygon and Irina in one of his monologue ramblings.
                                  I don't know why Eygon invades you, but it is him.

                                  What's more questionable though: why does he drops that mask? In Dark Souls 3 it says its somewhat similiar to firekeeper's crown (and Irina was meant to become one).
                                  However here's the thing: in Dark Souls 2 this mask belonged to Zullie - Alva's lover. Its exactly the same mask, but descriptions are completely different.

                                  I have no idea what any of this means, but its *****ign fascinating!
