Knight Kirk

Knight Kirk is an NPC Phantom in Dark Souls

 

Knight Kirk Information

Kirk, also known as the Knight of Thorns, is an infamous knight belonging to the Darkwraith faction (Although in reality he is actually a Chaos Servant which was released in an interview; this is why after his 3 defeats the body can be found in the same room as the Fair Lady.)

He has only one goal in life, apart from stealing Humanity, which is to make his prey bleed from nasty cuts inflicted by his gnarly weapons and armor

Beware of his dodge/roll, or utilize it once you have obtained the armor.

          He wasn't invading me in the Depths even though I was human and boss was alive.
          I walked away from his spawn trigger and reloaded (save/quit + continue) and he invaded.
          Not sure if walking away is even necessary but figured I'd add it in.

            So usually he invades me before I reach the Demon Firesage, this time he invaded me before the bed of chaos, immediately after I defeated the pyromancer does anyone know why this happened?

              Is it normal for him to invade you in the Kiln of the First Flame? I was invaded by him there, didn’t manage to kill him though.

                I was standing by his invasion spot and he wasn't invading (boss was still alive, I was human, nobody else was in my world) so I started looking up reasons why he might not show up. After about 5 minutes of waiting - while standing completely still - he invaded out of nowhere. This game is weird.

                  I thought he was a real player because I ran away from him and then spammed my shield to which he stopped walked away and then returned home do you have any idea why that happened?

                    I got invaded by him in the depths. My noob ass didn't know there WERE npc invaders. Thought he was a real guy and was really confused as to why i was able to beat him really easily. Thought maybe 'pvp in this game isn't so hard' big LOL.

                      So I killed Kirk in The Depths and right before the Bed Of Chaos but I missed him on the second encounter right before the Demon Firesage, does this mean I have to wait until NG+ to get his armor? Or can I somehow still get it?

                        Io non riesco a farmi invadere alle rovine del demone, l'ho già ucciso a lost izalith e alle profondità. Sono umano, sono nel posto giusto, ho già messo il ricettacolo dei lord ma lui non mi invade. Suggerimenti?

                          Shoutout: I did NOT kill Kirk in Depths, but killed him in both Demon Ruins and Lost Izalith, and his corpse with loot was in the room with the Fair Lady afterwards, not sure why but it happened.

                            I was invaded by Kirk in Anor Londo, but he was banished because I was going in to O&S's fight. I came here to see if it was an actual scripted invasion, or if some jerk is running around cosplaying.

                                So apparently if you parry him and kick him of the ledge near the bonfire past the capra demons he won't die.

                                  Does the fair lady still need to be alive for me to loot his body in that room? I killed her and ate her soul.

                                    I hate the depths so I just take the short cut through new Londo ruins then go to valley of drakes then bam, depths and half of dumbtown skipped!

                                      Anyone on Switch have a spare set of this armor you could drop for me? I forgot to fight him in the Depths :(

                                        Remastered on PS4. I’ve been invaden by Kirk in Lost Izalith even I did not fight him before in Depths or Demon Ruins (Gaping Dragon and Demon Firesage already defeated ). But no armor back in Fair Lady’s room as the wiki says (just defeated him once). Anyway I’m posting because I wrongly assumed you couldn’t face him if you had missed previous encounters, but you can.

                                          He invaded me at the Demon Ruins and before I could even see him, he died (I still have no clue how)... probably missed the loot

                                            If you defeat him in one area and don't defeat the boss of that area, will he invade again if you return to that area in human form?

                                              Will Kirk not invade you if you have a summon with you? For some reason he didn't invade me and that's the only reason I can think of why he didn't, and yes I hadn't killed the Gaping Dragon yet.

                                                I was hollow all through demon ruins and killed Demon Firesage hollow, so I didn’t fight him there. Can I still fight him in Izalith and get his armor?

                                                  You can't invade Kirk. Kirk invades you.

                                                  If you have "Reversed Hollowing" at a bonfire and walk around the area the article mentions, you will get a message saying Kirk is invading you.

                                                  You have to do them in order though.
