The bewitching branch works, I've used it but only from an unseen approach. Some of the comments here make it sound like you can stroll up to the knight powerstancing greatswords who'll wait politely for you to poke him with a branch while Niall and the other one have a chat about the football.
That wasn't my experience in my first NG+ no, instead all three were battering me at the same time, they killed me three times very quickly before I stopped trying and equipped ekzykes's decay. That did work dissolved the spectral nights in one cast and proc'd Niall, good beans. Also, 'waves of darkness' on a +25 zweihander works very well against commander Niall. It isn't difficult to catch him with all three waves and the optional follow up, with a weapon like zweihander that follow up attack does impressive damage, with the possibility of doing even more if you cast blackflame blade on the sword before using WoD all three waves slamming down take on the DoT characteristics of the blackflame.
