      Obnoxious ****ing enemies, why do they have infinite super armor while they're attacking to the point they can eat a 2-handed Great Hammer R2 (Even the Smelter Hammer which normally sends humanoid enemies like these dudes flying like wet towels and pancakes them with most of it's attacks with ease including heavily armored characters with high poise, struggles to even consistently stagger these bastards) without even ****ing flinching? The absolutely bullshit amounts of poise these douchebags have would make goddamn Havel jealous

        How do these mofos just face-tank an Ultra Greatsword 2h heavy attack and not even flinch?

        Seriously, how are these regular-ass knights complete poise-monsters who'll tank ultra Greatsword and Great Hammer/axe power slams to the face better than Havel ever could?
        I swear this particular DLC has a raging hard-on for regular mobs being complete poise-monsters for absolutely no reason other than to be an annoying and cheap way to make them "hard"

          I find it hilarious that they fat roll. It's very rare to see that. My advice is to put on the Stone ring and use something like a Large Club or a Gyrm Axe to pancake them. I personally used a Curved Dragon Greatsword +3, which doesn't flatten them, but it's poise breaks them and does huge damage.

            as long as you're able to break their stance and stun them for a bit, you should be able to follow up in some hits and take some chunks of their health off.
            bait their heavy and rolling attacks then go for a crit if you're being careful
            and keep in mind there are multiple drakebloods in the dragon sanctum, don't get overwhelmed or you'll die

            in other words, Try two-handing and using the stone ring

              I am very suspicious that the drakeblood knights wear a shield just like targray does when you consider the implication that the two orders of knights could have a common origin.

                I died to that one guy in a room with two spinning doors more than from most of bosses excluding smelter demon and pursuer o.O
                They are lightning fast, agressive, very hard to dodge ( probably due to location ) and it comes down to luck in beating them...
