Primal_Knight.png

Giant mastadon-like knights. These heavy armor brutes comes in two variants: the Golden ones in Drangleic Castle and the decayed rusted ones in Doors of Pharros. They are all armed with giant Halberds.

One of the original Primal Knights, this ragged creature went Hollow long ago and now wanders mindlessly with its equipment in tatters from long years of neglect. First created through a dark and forbidden ritual in ages past, the Primal Knights are artificial creatures contrived by a twisted and power-hungry mind. Their susceptibility to the Undead Curse, a trait they share with humans, raises foreboding questions about the rituals through which they were given life...



Strategy tips


  • Primal knights are very weak to successful parry. Unlike medium-sized enemies, they can't get up after being parried , and they can't retaliate while lying on the ground.
  • They also have a special attack animation if you do a plunging attack on them.
