The Pyro variant's Fire Whip is extremely deadly, will instantly kill you if you don't get out of the way in time.

Don't give up skeleton. But no seriously, they are stupid. Even with leveled adp they sometimes hit you with their back after you fully dodge a thrust attack, they are VERY resistant, have a lot of health, and can be incredibly agressive. The weapon i found working the best was fume straight sword as it staggers them more consistently. Also the idea that the soul drops aren't guaranteed and you have to join CoC is stupid. Only tips i have are:

-Don't kill the Ivory king, get aged feather first and bail out every time he spawns, it makes it far easier

If you killed him also try these:

-If you have decent amount of estus left don't leave, when they spawn it makes it easier to spawn pick one of them
-Don't even bother with trying to hit multiple at once it will almost never works
-Buff your weapon when you fall down, you need every second of extra damage
-Targeting pyromancer is generaly a bad idea in my experience, he rarely stays close enough to hit when you punish and melee knights will activate demon mode second you press any button
-Don't bother trying to use magic or anything they are too resistant to it, and need 2+ spells to get stuned usually
-Since you will be wearing prisoner rags and symbol of avarice get smelter demon legs and hands they give very good phys resist it's even worth that **** runback
-If 3 of them spawn as melee bail just downright bail it's not worth the effort, pyromancer is still dumb bot 3 melee spamming enemies with high health and VERY high damage are dumber
-use dried root so as not to get ****ed over with health drain from symbol of avarice
-if you use magic drink crimson water inbeetwen them spawning
-always assume they will perform 3 hit combo
-never ever try healing if you are not at least beyond pyromancers range, you will get hit
-you might want to get mentaly ready, it's really boring and unfair, so try not to worry about it too much

This is so ****ing stupid.

they def get stronger after the boss is defeated.

More likely you're in Covenant of Champions after the boss is defeated so that they'll infinitely respawn in The Old Chaos (instead of only spawning 12 times each, 36 times for all 3 combined). Champions makes enemies hit harder and take less damage.

Alexa, play BFG Division

In my experience they target the player over the allied Loyce Knights so be weary when healing as several if not all of the Charred Loyce Knights will start to charge towards you and can easily stun-lock you to death

If I was good at the game I'd regret not trying to kill more of these guys for their drops, but since I suck so much and die to the king every time, I dont have to worry about not being able to farm them.
By Anonymous
so only way to farm them is at the boss fight? wtf? how would you ever get 50 Souls?

Homeward bone when boss spawns rinse repeat

You can come back after the fight. They still respawn even after the king's death.
