Cleanrot Knights are Bosses in Elden Ring. This Elden Ring Cleanrot Knight Guide features boss locations, tips, strategies and videos on how to defeat the Cleanrot Knights easily, as well as boss stats and lore for the Cleanrot Knights.

Cleanrot Knights are tall warriors clad in golden armor with distinct tufts of decorative crimson fur. They wield a thrusting sword, alongside a spear or a scythe and are found as bosses in multiple locations. The Cleanrot Knights are serve Malenia, Blade of Miquella, and fought with her against General Radahn's army during the Shattering. They remain loyal to her despite knowing that they will eventually succumb to the scarlet rot.

This is an optional boss, as players don't need to defeat it in order to advance in Elden Ring. However, doing so yields useful Items and Runes. Their most significant attacks are greatly telegraphed and have long windups - use this to your advantage to get some hits in and possibly land critical hits. Beware of the range and size of the AOEs of their attacks, especially if you find yourself fighting against them in a small room. They drop the Winged Sword Insignia, Cleanrot Knight's Sword, or Gold Scarab depending on which one was defeated.

Bosses are unique and challenging Enemies that can be encountered all over the Lands Between. They can drop unique Spirit AshesWeaponsSpells, and other various Items.

Lesser Cleanrot Knight is the normal enemy form of this boss.

The spirit of a particular Cleanrot Knight, Finlay, can be summoned for aid in battle by using the Cleanrot Knight Finlay Ashes.

 

 The Cleanrot Knights vowed to fight alongside Malenia, despite the inevitable, if gradual, putrefaction of their flesh. Their acceptance of their fate made these battles fiercest of all.

Cleanrot Knight Combat Information

  • Health: NG (??), NG+ (??), NG++ (??), NG+3 (??), NG+4 (??), NG+5 (??), NG+6 (??), NG+7 (??)
  • Defenses do not change between phases - a firebomb will do the same damage in phase 1 as in phase 2.
  • The one in the Stillwater Cave will gain an attack boost if it lands many attacks, similar to the Winged Sword Insignia it drops.
  • Deals Standard Damage, Pierce Damage and Holy Damage. Can inflict Scarlet Rot with its grab attack.
  • Parriable: Yes. Can be riposted afterwards
  • Can be poise broken, which allows for a critical attack.

 

Absorptions:

The absorption numbers are the % of your damage that gets blocked. For example if an absorption is 60. 40% of that damage by that type will go through and 60% is absorbed. Bigger number= less damage. An absorption of 100 means no damage goes through, and a resistance of -100 mean the enemy takes 2x damage from that source. 0 means damage goes pretty much as is.

Resistances:

The resistance numbers is the buildup amount to trigger it. For example if a resistance is 100 you must deal 100 points of whatever aux buildup to trigger it. Note that these go down over time, and increase each time the effect procs.

Cleanrot Knight Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Cleanrot Knight:

  • Use any summons to distract them and keep them off you.
  • Beware when they raise their spear and it glows - they are about to impale you.
  • Constant attacks will cause them to shove you and leave you open to attacks.
  • Fish for backstabs. Their long windups and attack animations leave them vulnerable to backstabs.
  • Take out the Cleanrot Knight that wields a Sickle first before taking on the one that wields a Sword and Spear at the Abandoned Cave.

 

Melee Users

The most dangerous move in the Cleanrot Knight's repertoire is their Impale attack. They can use this attack from quite a good distance and it happens very quickly, dealing massive amounts of damage and inflicting Scarlet Rot. However, being a spear thrust move, the attack has a very narrow hitbox and can be avoided by dodging sideways. Melee players should beware of attacking the knight too constantly as they can shove you, kicking you out of your combo and rendering you vulnerable to attacks. This is signified by the knight crossing its weapons to block your attacks. After a few hits, the knight's spear will glow gold and they will shove you to interrupt your attacks.

Try to rotate around them, and bait their attacks and then backstab. Many of the attacks have long animations allowing you to get behind and backstab if you are close by.

If you encounter the Cleanrot Knights at the Abandoned Cave, there will be two of them. The first one is similar to the one at Stillwater Cave, wielding a spear and a sword, the other one wields a sickle. The one with the sickle is the one focused on doing the ranged attacks, so it is recommended that you take out the long ranged Knight first, you can use a spirit summon to make the fight easier and to distract either one of them.

Magic and Ranged Users

Magic and Ranged users should not underestimate the knight's range. Their spear attacks are very good gap closers and they can quickly pummel you to death with their sword. The impale move is especially dangerous for lighter-armored players. If it connects, it will take out a very large chunk of your health. Consider using spirit summons and take potshots at the knight while they are distracted.

If you encounter the Cleanrot Knights at the Abandoned Cave, it is recommended that you take out the one with the sickle first, spirit ashes are always helpful in a duo boss situation.

 

Cleanrot Knight Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Rushdown The Cleanrot Knight raises its spear as it is covered in a golden sheen. It will then make a mad dash toward you. If the attack connects, it raises you in the air and stabs you, inflicting heavy Scarlet Rot buildup. Dodge to the side as soon as you see the yellow glow.
Shoving Counter The Knight crosses its sword and spear, blocking attacks. Shortly after, it will shove its weapon forward, flashing a golden glow, leaving you open to follow-ups. Refrain from long, repeated combos when his guard is up.
Sacred Phalanx Spear Variant:
The Knight drags its spear along the ground, sending out a row of golden spears in front of it.
You will see a yellow glowing light indicating where the golden spears will appear, try to move away from it to avoid getting hit.
Sword Thrusts Performs multiple quick sword thrusts. You can try to circle around or dodge roll away when it starts performing the combo. 
Miquella's Ring of Light Scythe Variant:
While at a distance, the Knight will use its scythe to fire off holy rings that home in on enemies.
Dodge forward or to the sides.
Repeating Thrust Uses the spear for the first thrust, then both the sword and spear for the second thrust. You can block the first thrust, then dodge roll through the second one, you may be able to land a backstab afterwards, or just land a few hits to be safe. 

Cleanrot Knight Lore, Notes & Other Trivia

  • They first appeared in a trailer back in E3 2019, seen stabbing Radahn with their spears.
  • Alternatively known as Noble Rot Knight in other languages.
  • Spear Variants are more aggressive than their Scythe wielding counterparts, often being the ones charging their opponents.

      Why is the spear grab's rot buildup infinite, and not just absurdly high... BTW the only other attack with infinite status buildup is mohg's nihil

      • Anonymous

        For the love of god do not ignore the spear ones for even a second, they love spamming that stupid impale grab the moment you take your eyes off of them, unless you like feeling like a shiskebab.

        • Anonymous

          I don't know why but almost everytime an enemy hits me with a grab attack, i take it really personally and do everything in my power to murk their ass out of spite.

          • Anonymous

            You've got to admire the resilience of the Tarnished, they can take a plate armored valkyrie knight charging into them and impaling them on a spear before stabbing them in the face with a scarlet rot covered rapier and yeeting them like a wet towel yet they can just get casually get back up from that as if it was nothing more than a little flesh wound (unless they haven't leveled Vigor enough ofc).

              I love how the Scythe one's scarlet rot attack is that he pukes at you, while the Spear one just procs rot from the grab lol

              • Anonymous

                Not very hard since they stunlock pretty easily if you focus them down and aren't too tanky, but can be very annoying if you give them even a second of breathing room partially due to that lunging instant scarlet rot proc grab that the spear wielding ones like to perform on you.

                  best knight enemy in the series imo, managable health pool and aggressive moveset which still leaves openings, no Havel Poise, and they don't hide behind greatshields. Actually fun to fight when not parrying unlike most older knight enemies

                    Giant Hunt throws them around like ragdolls, it's so satisfying to get payback for all the times they hit me with that impale attack

                      Cleanrot spear ONLY DROPS FROM THE CLEANROT KNIGHTS THAT EMERGE FROM THE GROUND AND ARE HOLDING THE SPEAR! Simply go to Aeonia Swamp Shore grace and head SW past the mushrooms. There should be one that spawns a couple islands down on the north side of the island. Kill him and then head north east and look around that area, there are about 7 or 8 that spawn and they are likely marked by players messages.

                        Their Scarlet Rot breath attack is missing. I think it's just a rarer attack. Unless I'm dumb, and it doesn't even exist.

                          If you're farming their gear, I recommend right next to the heart of aeonia grace, they seem to have better drop rates for me there, there are plenty, and you can take them on one by one.

                            Seems to not be mentioned in here, but the sickle version in the Abandoned Cave will heal both of them over time. Either interrupt the cast or be aggressive against the sickle one.

                              Has anyone seen them do their own version of Golden Vow? I've only seen it once. THe knight seems to spin his weapon, while a white incantation circle appears in font of him. Idk what happens next.

                                I just noticed something about them today, they are all left-handed it seems. Their backup sword is in their right hand while their main weapon is in the left, which is kind of neat. Could be because Malenia would have been left-handed before she got a prosthetic arm and they miniced this. The only problem with this is that my roleplay as a cleanrot knight will require me to left hand the main weapons, so I cannot use their weapon arts without two handing them and the sword cannot use the 'no skill' weapon art, while also the shield on the spear is pointing the wrong way -.-

                                  If you’re having trouble, try using greatshield soldier ashes and firepots. While your summons distract them just keep lobbing pots from out of range. Melted them really quickly.

                                    The spear ones are so annoying because they LOVE spamming that damn grab and they love doing it from offscreen when you're focused on something else even more.

                                      If you want to farm these guys early do the dragon burnt ruins teleport. You can summon Pollyanna from the Commander O'Neill bossfight arena and help you farm. She can also beat Millicent when she invades to punish you for being in the swamp too early like the naughty player you are.

                                          These guys really hate fire. Black flame spells are particularly vicious against them since the % based damage seems to get 20% extra dmg as well. Like 4 black fireballs with a +13 godslayer seal and 28 faith was all each one took to kill.

                                          Their movesets are very easy except for a very annoying golden disc spell from the second one. Gotta roll towards it to get through, panic rolling away or sideways will get you caught every time.

                                            Noble rot wine is 貴腐ワイン(noble rot wine) in Japanese, so the exact translation of "Cleanrot Knight" 貴腐騎士 would be "Noble rot Knight

                                              I think the greaves might have a higher chance of dropping. I spent over an hour grinding and got 11 greaves, 4 helms, 4 chest pieces and 3 gauntlets. might just be luck

                                                  Are they called cleanrot knights because they clean up the rot, or because when they get rot, their rot is clean (they get sick but don't die-are carriers)?

Those 3 Ghost cleanrot knight continiously fight Raddan's Ghsot soldiers. All of them respawn after 5 sec of killing them. They drop lots of runes and items as well.

The hawk can probably solo him. I only got like, 4-5 attacks in, and the hawk didn't even lose 1/3 of its health (Mine was +2).

Trina's Lily description says they signify faith in Trina, whereas Miquella's lily description says that they signify faith in the haligtree. Pretty neat little detail.

Once killing the ones you need the items from, just head back to the grace on horseback since teleporting seems to remove the silver-pickled owl foot status effect. seems like you kill all of them in under 45-50~ seconds depending your weapon.

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

                                                                            They definitely do exist tho.

                                                                              • Anonymous

I got all of it there.

                                                                                • Anonymous

You can dodge roll and strafe a few of them. Parrying is likely effective. Amusingly, I got poisoned after a backstab on him, despite both of us being on land.
