      Those two silver knights after the first anor londo bonfire makes for great soul farming. equip shield of want and mimic head and each silver knight gives 4500 souls, 9k souls ez in a minute.

          I sure has some fun in the catacombs/tomb of giants with that silver knight's such a shame they didn't include it on be able to see it in action, it's so close to grasp, but will forever be out of hand's reach...

            You can get their shield, bow, and armor set, but not the sword or spear? I feel like Fromsoft is taunting us.

              2018 and I still (rightfully) whine about not beeing allowed to get their weapons. QQ
              Have to continue using Sunlight Straight Sword as a replacement.

                Staggered by three 1H R1 attacks of a straightsword, this only took two when the weapon was two-handed. Be warned that they may also have hyper-armor.

                  This game has been out for a while so it's probably common knowledge, but has any one else noticed the odd glitch regarding the spear wielding silver knight at the Anor Londo bonfire, on the stairs? When the spear knight comes down the steps, and begins his long range spear charge animation, if you angle your camera down so you aren't looking at him, his spear charge won't come straight to you down the steps. Rather, the game will make his charge go more horizontal, over your head, as if he were standing on a flat surface and not an angled surface. Depending on how far up the steps he was when he initially charged, he can take a bit of fall damage upon landing. It's pretty easy to get behind him after he lands too, since he's stunned after falling. I wonder why From never fixed this...

                      Seen people discussing why these Silver Knights are hostile to use and not the Deacons or going after Aldrich.
                      Judging from the Red-eyed Silver Knight and the noises they make when they die and also their black blood. Sadly, I think these guys got corrupted by Aldrich or the Deacons or makes sense as the last force of Anor Londo to defend it from EVERY kind of outsider.
                      They either got corrupted or FromSoft got lazy. I'm betting on the latter because usually there would be a cryptic message hinting this but there's none.

                      Also notice how the ones in Irithyll before Pontiff are guarding the Manor and disappear when they die as the real Silver Knights did in DS1 (while the other ones after Sulyvahn don't disappear) perhaps these Silver Knights are the non corrupted ones and are there to fight off Sulyvahn and his forces (noticed how there's dogs on patrol and no Pontiff Knights)
                      That's my theory.

                        I dont get why I can farm all the Black Knight weapons, but not the Silver. Like why? I just want the spear....
