I'm presently playing a no-magic build. Just a rapier, parry shield, short bow, consumables. Crucible Knights went from being my least favorite fights to fights I seek out even when there's no reward like that Tree Crucible before Valiant Gargoyles. The reach on that spear thrust is so easy to mis-judge but it feels so nice to parry them and take them down.
I was at one time entirely incapable of parrying anything. Pages, Soldiers, and Crucible Knights are a great way to learn. It feels great turning what was once a slog into a "4 parries and they're dead" fight.
I'm thinking when I take this character to NG+ she's coming back as a Crucible Knight.
