      This is bar far the worst of the “high level” summons. Can’t hold agro at all. Just tested on 2 bosses and it didn’t not hold agro the whole fight. I do not recommend.

        This dude is my hero <3 He just eats hits from bosses, shocked me with how much damage he took from Tree Sentinel at +2

        • Anonymous

          He is very good but I often end up shouting ENGVALL, as he always ends up stalking the boss instead of attacking it.

            Why’d they give both of them the exact same version of the Banished Knight set? Seems like a missed opportunity to have the other one wear either the cloaked hood or the unaltered chest piece.

              I’ve fought with this man in many many fights. He was my first +10 ash. He can also solo smaller dungeon bosses as well all by himself. I consider him pretty much a friend at this point lol.

                Engvall tanks like a champ. I use him as my primary spirit ash in boss fights, but sometimes the mimic all depending. Engvall will *follow* you, just know this, so if you get too far away from him he'll stop fighting and run to you. Not good of course in the middle of a fight. But he hits like a truck and is always ready for action, I'll let him watch my back any day.

                  Honestly my favorite of all the summons. It's so satisfying to stunlock bosses with him and watch as they get face planted if they haven't already been poise broken. Really enjoy just releasing him onto a field of enemies and just watching from the sidelines. 11/10 would absolutely recommend with the highest degree

                    the lone wolves spirit summons even with no upgrades, make getting this from the grave warden boss and lhutel headless from the cemetery shade a triviality even for very low levelled players just getting started.

                      This guy has major "getting compared to your cool big brother" syndrome. In my experience he's a more defensive version of the two with way more stagger in exchange for quite a but less damage output. Sometimes he's just what you need. I prefer him to Oleg when I don't need help with doing enough damage, just need something in between me and the boss. Engvall does that job very well. Plus you can get him like 10 minutes into the game without doing the damn chariot dungeon

                      • So what exactly makes him better than Oleg? He's not a bad summon but he just seems outclassed (which is a problem with a LOT of summons in this game but whatever) by his counterpart which costs the same fp and is way more aggressive and much better at staggering bosses. I don't see any, if at all, difference in their health and even then Oleg still worked better on the gatefront test. The only true advantage I'm seeing is that the grave warden in Murkwater Catacombs isn't the walking stomach ulcer in Fringefolk Hero's Grave so he's easier to get.

                          Used this guy pretty much the entire game. Might be top 5 tankiest summons and will pretty much never die in any fight. The damage is not great but he does high poise damage and knocks down very often. If summoned at the start of the Malenia fight, he will make her eat dirt before she gets any attacks in and you can do over 30% of her health right there.
                          No ranged weapons though he has a strong mid-range storm jump attack. Don't use it vs bosses that fly or move a lot (like dragons or Ainsel).
                          Will keep any boss busy for as long as you need. Worth the 100 FP for sure.

                            Weird how he's explicitly called the "Hero of the Fringes" in his description yet he's not the Banished Knight you get in the Fringefolk Hero's Grave. It's like his and Oleg's location was switched.

                                I wonder why this dude wasn’t in the Fringefolk Grave. Is it because the Grace Given Lord (likely Morgott) tried to invite him to serve him, but he refused? It’s said that Oleg accepted the Lord’s offer, maybe that’s why he got to be buried in a nice grave instead of Engvall, got only got the regular catacombs. Engvall was likely the true hero of the fringes, but was never granted the opportunity to rest in a special grave because he refused the Lord’s offer.

                                  Are you summoning a big ass ghost knight with a halberd?
                                  No he's my grandpa, he died on the way to the renaissance festival. Here's your sign. (big points if you get that joke)

                                    He is the easiest elite ash you can get and can really impact early game’s difficulty. He is in a small dungeon with a somewhat weak boss close to the beginning of the game. Just pick the wolf ashes and you can probably kill him on the first try.

                                      A real bro summon. Has great AI - at least 3 times in "multiboss" or "boss with ads" fights, he focused the target that I did not focus, lightening my load. Quite aggressive, has good pathing. His damage is not OP, he won't solo most of the bosses, he lets you participate in the game, like a true bro. He is tanky. You get him early, and he does not require big investments in Mind (literally).

                                        Can someone explain why this ash is given from the Murkwater Catacombs, but is described as "gaining renown as a hero of the fringes.", and then the other Banished Knight, Oleg comes from... the Fringefolk Hero's Grave?! Such a strange choice lorewise.

                                          A key point to note about using Engvall vs. Oleg is they have a big difference in fighting multiple enemies in somewhere like Sellia (where I like to test all the summons to get a feel for how they aggro and generally function). Oleg will sheathe both of his swords any time that combat isn't active, meaning that he has to draw them again when an enemy appears, which takes him a longer time to engage new enemies, and why his DPS is slightly higher. Engvall on the other hand always has his halberd in-hand, and will whirlwind attack in order to engage if he's too far back, so he is MUCH faster to leap in and defend you from hidden enemies. As such, Oleg is better under constant aggression, but Engvall will serve better under intermittent combat. Hopefully that helps sort out how to best prioritize playstyle if you're using them in Ruins or other locations aside from just boss fights.

                                            That boi helps veggie players like myself enjoy that game. Offline OP buddy, who will tank bosses so you can backstab/spellcast/shoot them to death.
                                            I've upgraded mine to 3+ and he face-tanked dragon in Liruna and Magma Wyrm with no issues.
                                            What a BRO.

                                            Definitely worth getting early points into mana pool, even as melee player, to summon him.

                                              My knight in shining banishment takes all the aggro and carries me big time. Just you wait Engvall I'll be strong enough to have your back in no time...

                                                  Seems like Oleg has slightly better dps while Engvall has slightly better at surviving. The difference is minor enough that they are pretty interchangeable. So really its all down to which one you think is cooler.

                                                    Wish you could fuse both banished knights into like a super summon. Of course they'd have to cost a lot of FP but it would kick ass to have both Oleg and Engvall to curb-stomp baddies

                                                        Did some tests with this and the oleg variant vs a giant or some godrick soldiers . After a few tries oleg does more dps and staggers enemies a lot but he is less tanky and doesn't have a jump attack which also helps engvall tank more by jumping over attacks. My view on these two is generally oleg is better unless you are vsing large amounts of enemies as then engvall's massive swinging attacks and survivability will generate more value.

                                                                  Until someone confirms and finds out where they moved that hammer, I will assume this to be the case.

It murders hordes of enemies with massive swing combos (I saw 5 swings in a row as he did the wind up stagger thing that banished knights do) has great poise and has great stagger potential. Better than lhutel the headless for sure at the very least in the testing I did in both survivability and damage.

                                                                                C) Something else I haven't thought of XD

                                                                                                          This time I was playing as a sorcerer. I'm not sure if that made any difference.

                                                                                                            Before the 1.03 update, this boss dropped the Battle Hammer weapon. Now he drops the summon instead.
