Undead Crystal Soldier

A weak crystal encrusted soldier with quite strong attacks.




  • Jump Attack
  • Downward Strike
  • Slash
  • Shoulder Bash



  • Aggro them one at a time if possible; they become a pain in groups.
  • Don't use magic weapons on them, as they are quite resistant to magic damage.
  • If you have a strong enough weapon, they are easily staggered to death.
  • They move quite slowly and it's simple to just backstab them after you dodge one of their slow moving attacks.
  • Watch out for signs of them being buffed by a Channeler, because then they can deal serious damage.
  • Don't forget about any Crystal Archers that are nearby; lure them away from the arrows to a safer battleground.
  • They are weak to thrust and lightning attacks. This means weapons such as rapiers and spears would be ideal. Especially the lightning spear you may have recieved from Sens Fortress.

        Can you not riposte them? I keep parrying them, but no matter what I try, it won't trigger a riposte. Not holding my shield up. I don't use one.

          when i first encountered these pricks, i thought to myself "hey, crystal golumes are weak to strike, and these guys are mostly crystal" but i didn't have any strike weapons, so ya know what i do? i equip an unupgraded black knight shield in my right hand and start beating the sh*t out of them, i died needless to say

          • This article warns against using magic attacks on the crystal golems, explaining "they are quite resistant to magic damage." It later goes on to explain that they are weak to lightning attacks. However, the crystal golems magic and lightning defense appear to be equal, both totaling 333. From what I understand then, shouldn't they be equally damaged by both lightning and magic attacks?
