Ringed City Slave Combat Information

  • Sets traps (e.g. play dead) and attacks from above. 
  • Regular uses lightning spells: Lightning Stake and Spear. May also attack with their stake. Can also break player attack by pushing him or perform a critical strike on him.
  • Cursed one, despite weilding stake, will not attack with it. They try to stay as close as possible to player.
  • Weak to Slash Damage, Frostbite and Bleed.
  • Resistant to Lightning Damage, Poison and Toxic.
  • Can be lured.
  • Can be rapported.
  • Bows and crossbows are helpful while facing cursed one. If player fight them at close range, cursebite ring is recommended.
  • Using Slumbering Dragoncrest Ring and Hidden Body at the same time DO NOT prevent player from aggroing them. However, they often appear near the Harald Legion Knights, which seems to ignore the player if equipped with mentioned ring and under influence of Hidden Body, so using them both will make some fights easier.

        "Lightning Gem (very rare)" and "Hollow Gem(rare)"

        I've gotten more of both off of these lads than I got all game, and I didn't farm them. I don't even use those infusions on my character XD

          This is false, personally tested and confirmed both work, but they seem to have a larger than normal "detection range"

            I think Pygmy ***** Punchers would have been a better name. In fact, anything at all would be a better and more fitting name than "Lothric Thief" considering they're neither from Lothric nor are they thieves. At least my suggestion alludes to the fact that they stagger you with 2 hand ****/vag punches. It must be genital jabs. FromSoft wouldn't make a little old push attack from a midget the most poise breaking thing in the game. It must be a creative new mechanic like nut thumping. If not, I'd have to say that's absolute BS. I don't wanna do that. I love making unreasonable and nonsensical excuses for FromSoft

              I just got one-shot by one of these guys ONLY by the pushing. LVL 120, FULL health, FULL Lothric Knight armor.

              One shot by pushing (didn't fall or anyuthing). ****ING BULL****,.

                Hey team, I just did get a Hollow gem drop from one of the cursed guys, so that can be added in their drops list :D

                • Where did whoever wrote this get the "Lothric thief" or "Undead Cleric" name from? They are never named in game, and the concept art book calls them "Ringed City Hollow".

                      So many different names could work here. Pygmy Cleric. Pygmy Rogue. Hollow Pygmy. Cursed Pygmy. Undead Pygmy. Pygmy of The Ringed City. Lothric Thief, however, is a complete misnomer.

                        These things are SOOOO freaking annoying. Damn gnats. Oh, you want to push me into Midir's fire? Too bad, you missed and now you burn instead. You want to yeet me off the edge of a cliff? How about I yeet you off the cliff instead.

                          Their enemy type should be hollow and they weak to Hollowslayer GS. The Wolf Knight's GS (551 attack) deal 541 damage and The Hollowslayer GS(539 attack) deal 632 damage. The damage is increase significantly. Also they drop hollow gem so they should be hollow.

                            Not gonna lie their little shove that can stagger you hard is the stupidest thing ever, we can block and dodge a bosses strong attack but a little tiny hollow gives us a tiny push and we’re staggered like a drunken hobo

                              "Lothric Thief" makes me think of the hollows on the Lothric High Wall who wear the thief set and use daggers and throwing knives, or even the hooded thralls (who can also be seen as thief-like and are found in Lothric.) Very misleading name to give to a red-robed, lightning-bolt-throwing enemy type not found anywhere in Lothric...

                                40 Strength 40 Intelligence 45 Faith I think they are resistant to Dark and weak to Fire damage. It took 3 hits to kill with a Dark man-serpent hatchet +9 and only 2 with the Chaos man-serpent hatchet +9. Haven't tested yet with the Heavy serpent hatchet +9

                                  This enemy should really be renamed on this wiki. While they don't have an official name, "Lothric Thief" is entirely misleading, since there's nothing tying them to Lothric, and their only ties to thievery are their agile moveset and dagger/stake weapon. "Pygmy Citizen", "Pygmy Cleric", "Pygmy Monk", or "Red-Robed Pygmy" are all much better names that don't bring up images of the Thralls.

                                    Wait, how are those Lothric Thieves? I thought these where Pigmy citizens. Eh well, just splitting hairs.

                                    Also they drop hollow gems fairly often. Before the DLC, I had to farm Corvians for hours on nd to get one or two hollow gems, after playing The ringed City, I literaly drown in hollow gems.
