Curious that they're weak to lightning?
They're covered head to toe in metal armor...
Seems they're weak to Dark, also, I'm shredding them with the deep battle axe you get from the mimic
If You're planning on farming Sunlight Medals the Hollowslayer Greatsword is the way to go, stunlock with 2H works just fine.
every time i see this guy all i can think of is the, oh mywamu mu shidaharu meme
O ma e wa mo, shin de i ru....breeeeeee! Haha
Everyone remembers the first time you see this guy walk out of the building next to the dragon and just s*** yourself
I ran...
And for good f*ckin' reason. These guys can often 2-shot low-level characters. They remain a threat until SL 30,and even then they can kill you if you make a wrong move.
I didn't do that at all. I thought to myself "I can take him..." then he proceeded to reck my***** up.
Idk man, i ran in there and killed him, even though my health and estus were basically gone; i then got throwing knived by the hollow inside
Little tip they have very poor poise and can be stun lock by weapons with descent knockback
So things like axes, great swords, hammers all that jazz
I did my heavy enemy parry training on these knights, as one of there attacks is very easy to parry for the critical hit, especially effective using one of the shields with the extended parry frames as well as equipping the hornet ring, and you can riposte the hell out of these guys for major damage, and using a sword that they are weak to is really great as well. Even at new game +3, I am able to two hit the red eyed knights and one hit the normal lothric knights using the blessed target shield to parry, the hornet ring and then quickly switching to the chaos dagger for the critical hit, makes these guys kinda a joke as long as it's a one on one fight. Although I do not recommend trying to parry the knights that rock the great shield and spear. Instead us a weapon that does a guard break and after a few hours of practice, you will never have an issue with these guys ever again, useless you get double teamed or you are just not that gud at the game.
I got a blessed gem from one of them
Sword users have very telegraphed stab/running attacks, and the rest are easy to time with practice. THE SPEAR GUYS HOWEVER
the spear guys get easier if you study their moves and don't take one look at them and think "ah welp this is unkillable"
have over 300 hours in game and I now feel comfortable fighting all of them with almost any weapon type, spear guys and red eye dude outside dancer are tough fights but good for practice and for testing out weapons. These enemies demonstrate the importance of a guard breaking weapon art or some kind of CC like Unleash Dragon. Weapons like the basic club can stun lock them until you run out of stamina due to the high stamina damage it does.

I use the spear knight as the final test for whether or not a weapon is worth keeping or tossing in the trash. If it can't kill them as fast or faster than a regular straight sword with no upgrades, then it's probably a garbage weapon.
i think i will just use hidden body spook and run through them
The wording makes it sound as if the Blues are the only ones to use Blessed Weapons even though I watched a Red Greatsword wielder buff his weapon and slap my friend back to the bridge. To clarify, it also wasn't a red-eye variant.
