Stone Knight is an enemy in Dark Souls 2.
Stone Knight Information
Knights in the service of sir Velstadt, the Royal Aegis. When Velstadt left with Vendrick through the King's Passage the men under his command dutifully remained at their posts, awaiting his return for so long that they eventually turned to stone.1
Wearing heavy armor and a helmet resembling the head of a horse, these sleeping statues which won't activate until approached or attacked (from range). When activated, Stone Kights have glowing red eyes and wield twinblades. Even though the gear looks heavy, they are still very agile. They attack with combos which involve turns, jumps and kicks. They can be "destroyed" before they get up to attack, in which case they have less than half of their regular health, do not drop items and can be distinguished from actual statues by being the only ones with heads. They are found in King's Passage.
- Stone Twinblade
- Titanite Slab
- Stone Parma
- Llewellyn set
- Clear Bluestone Ring +2
- Souls: NG: 1,000 NG+: 2,000 NG+7: 4,000
These guys are really cool enemies for being random not-particularly-hard mobs that you only find in one very specific zone in Drangleic Castle, they have very stylish movesets and a cool design.
The horse one can break your guard and does what looks dancing moves
easy to take out using a heavy curved greatsword. make sure to apply a magic buff too, as they are very weak to it. i like to behead the first sleeping knight, body the second, and wait until the third and fourth ones are both in my swing range. then, 2 hits will clear them out easy peasy.
cool kids trying to be badass be like:
I wish we could get their armor
On a linear path NG, 60 Int and +4 MSW only does 75-80% hp. I even killed 3 Persuers to get the titanite to upgrade the staff and not much difference. Tried Firestorm, Chaos, Fog, poison and run. I beat the first one with my mace then run until they chill and pull them one at a time. Coming from battlemage with Drangelic Shield and +10 Magic Mace, which can do the job one on one with these freak ninjas
I know i'm years behind, but they seem to be particulary vulnerable to magic, as I could kill them in a single swing of Soul Greatsword
Wait is says these guys can drop a Clear Bluestone Ring +2? This is an error right?
The Stone Knights can also drop awestones (at least on sotfs edition)
I don't fully get how you're supposed to fight these melee. They're easy to deal with by just luring them to their max tether range/a corridor and dealing with them 1 v 1, but they all wake up at once so fighting them 1 v 4 when they are so agile doesn't make much sense.
The stone knights are also a blueish tint compared to the normal statues.
