Charred Loyce Knight is an enemy in Dark Souls 2. 


Charred Loyce Knight Information

Corrupted Loyce Knights of the Ivory King, they cast themselves into the Old Chaos in order to seal-off the Flame of Chaos for their dearest Alsanna, the only good Child of the Dark.

They wield various melee weapons as well as pyromancy, fight as a squad, and tend to spawn infinitely until the gates are sealed by the three out of four good Loyce Knights. Once the Burnt Ivory King is defeated, they respawn continueously for the armor set as well as Loyce Soul. Eventually they'll despawn, approx 45 times. The only way to save them is to retrieve their souls and let Alsanna to calm them with her embrace.





Strategy Tips

  • If you are summoned into another player's world as a white phantom to assist with the Burnt Ivory King, the Charred Loyce Knights will still be capable of dropping their entire armor set as well as Loyce souls. This makes it quite easy to farm the set and the souls while still engaging in Jolly Cooperation.
  • Focus on the Pyromancer Knight whenever possible, and always keep moving. The pyromancer tends to separate itself from the pack, but getting swarmed by the melee knights can easily kill you.
  • Time your rolls well and always know where the pyromancer is.

      ok, i was trying to farm the charred loyce knights before the bossfight because they despawn if i kill the Ivory King they despawn after 12 but they started having bullshit targeting.
      When they spawn they go straight for me ignoring the normal loyce knights and if i am like half arena away from them they go for me.
      The normal knights are straight up useless dealing low damge and they barely have any aggro.
      Then charred kinght start piling up and you die because you just get hit by somethign you can't see or by 5 greataxes hittign you while you are healing.

      This is not just because i suck (i know i suck) but even one of you proplayers that completed the entire soulsborn series first try no damage with broken straight sword SL1 blindfolded with no hands can go to the ivory bossfight and test the targeting of the charred knights

        Idk what hurts the most for them in our ugs ripostes: the ugs slash or the punch in the ****.

        You open them to ripostes with attacks that would send other enemies flying backwards, like an ugs r2.

          I did some math, and I have a rough estimate of 4% drop rate for the loyce souls. Pretty bull**** if you ask me. By the time I had 5 loyce souls, I already had 2 charred loyce shields, 2 charred loyce greatswords, 3 charred loyce helms, 1 charred loyce armor, 1 charred loyce gauntlet, and 2 charred loyce leggings. At least I got some amount of stuff from it. This is without any discovery increase buffs, rings, or armor.

            I am fairly sure that without any item discovery buffs (gold serpent ring, coins, etc.) the loyce souls have a 4% drop rate, based on what I can tell

              Those pyromancer ones can kill you with a single stream of fire if you get too close. Kind of BS if you ask me.

                I found Red Iron Twinblade to work amazingly on them. Every hit stunlocks them, wich can result in almost 4 hit combo kill, with just one-hit hp left with RIT+10 and 40 STR

                  If you log out while in the old chaos arena area, then log back in, the Charred Loyce Knights will double spawn. At least, this happened to me.
