Sanctum Knight Information

Invisible knights wandering in the sanctum seemly immune to physical attack, often carry dual swords or dual crossbows, the source of their invisibility is the statues with glowing red aura which look identical to their armors, break them to render them visible so you can attack them with physical attacks. Statues do not reset until NG+ or burnt Bonfire Ascetic.

"The Sactum Knights renounced their own flesh to eternally guard the sactum from Sir Yorgh and his Drakeblood Knights." - Sanctum Knight Set description.
