Heide Knights are enemies in Dark Souls II. They are first encountered after climbing a ladder beyond the The Crestfallen's Retreat bonfire.
  • Heide Knights served as protectors for the ancient Heide kingdom. However, their land sunk into the sea long ago, and only time distortion could explain their presence in Drangleic.
  • Heide Knights' equipment is made of a special alloy that is incredibly durable. Even after thousands of years, weapons and armors found in game have not deteriorated.
  • Heide Knights are non-hostile until attacked by players.
  • Heide Knights have high HP, swift attacks and movement, and deal significant damage. They can surprise and stagger players with their combos.
  • Heide Knights, although proficient in close ranged combat, have no ranged attacks. They can also be parried and backstabbed.

In Scholar of the First Sin, they appear in Heide's tower, and, while generally non-hostile to begin with, some do attack on sight, and the rest will become hostile and roam the area after the Dragon Rider is killed. They no longer have a 100% drop.
