Crystal Knight is an Enemy in Dark Souls.

Crystal Knight

The Crystal Knight is an enemy found within the Duke's Archives directly before the first encounter with Seath the Scaleless. Just after going up the elevator leading to Seath there will be a narrow hallway which this enemy stands in. It stands in the way of progress and wears the Crystalline Set, wields the Crystal Greatsword, and a Crystal Shield.

Drops

Attacks

  • Horizontal Swing, can be parried, can be blocked. (Greatsword move set, standard swing)
  • Overhead Slam, can be parried, can be blocked. (Crystal Greatsword move set, strong attack)
  • Rolling Attack, can be parried, can be blocked. (Greatsword move set, rolling attack)
  • Riposte, if parried this foe may riposte you. It deals increased damage.

 

Strategy

The Crystal Knight can be blocked quite easily due to the fact that he only deals physical damage. It is advised to pull him out of the hall and into the more open room that houses the elevator. His attacks are somewhat slow and predictable making him easy to parry. One should not simply attack him repeatedly since the Crystal Knight can parry and riposte causing a great deal of damage to the player. He moves at a slow speed, fat rolling to dodge, this makes him an easy foe to back stab. It is also quite simple to nuke him with spells since the Crystal Knight is not very capable at dodging attacks.
