      you can also get a hidden blessing! I got mine from a knight in the manor, the one staring at the Gwynevere painting

      • you can buy rusted coins from the shrine handmaid if you offer her old womans ashes to increase item discovery. Also in my case i get around 6000 souls per kill with soul boosting items (symbol of avarice, shield of want and serpent ring.) thats around 2 or 3 gold coins every knight. Best of luck in getting proof of concords

          I have a theory: these are not real silver knights, but silver knight armors filled with Aldrich sludge. First of all their corpses do not disappear (like the black knights) but remain after death. Second: their blood is black, it leaves black stains on the floor when you attack them. Maybe it would explain why they defend Anor Londo even though it has been overrun by the Deep. Because Aldrich's flesh posessed them, kinda like Plaga posessed armor from Resident Evil 4. This is just a theory, so I might be wrong.

            there is a mod for the pc version of this game where you get a chance to show these silver knights who the real boss is

                OMG I HATE THESE GUY'S FOR ONE REASON! THERE FU**ING LOW COVENANT ITEM DROP!?!?!

                THE HOURS OF FARMING THESE GUY'S WAS HORRIBLE! EVEN WITH MAX ITEM DISCOVERY IT TOOK FOREVER TO GET ENOUGH FOR THE STUPID COVENANT!?!?

                the knights them selfs are not that bad of an enemy, and not too annoying to deal with. BUT EVERYTIME I SEE THESE GUY'S I AM REMINDED OF THESE FU**ING HOURS OF ATTEMPTS, TO GET THE COVENANT ITEM'S TO 30 FROM THEM.

                I HAVE PTSD NOW FROM HOW MANY TIMES I KILLED THESE KNIGHTS WITHOUT GETTING THE COVENANT ITEM FROM THEM!!?!?!?!?

                            i tried to backstab one of them twice in a row and my character just did the backstab animation and the knight just turned 180° and blocked the attack and he just oneshot me while i was staggered
                            wtf, make them non backstabbable instead of this bullshit

                                  sometimes while I'm farming ears in anor londo I like to watch the corpses of these guys slowly, but gracefully, roll down the stairs.

                                      Load your weapon with lighting and they Will take much more damage. Never tried spellcasting on them, so I don't know about that, but they are definitely not resistant to lightning buffed weapons. My sword cuts em like butter when I buff it.

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...

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                  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 something...it 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.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

I roll so I'm literally behind the one with the long pike on the staicase at Anor Londo but STILL get hit by his charge AND lose more than half of my HP. I dodge the one with the sword and end up positioned so my shoulder is almost touching him and the 12 foot arc of my curved greatsword misses him entirely. What a load of crap. The further I get in this game the more challenging and difficult turn to cheap and unfair.
