Cleanrot Knights are Field Bosses in Elden Ring. These tall warriors are 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. 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.

The Cleanrot Knights 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.

Lesser Cleanrot Knight is the normal enemy form of this boss. The spirit of a Cleanrot Knight can be summoned for aid in battle using 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.

Negations (or Absorptions)

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

Cleanrot Knight Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Cleanrot Knight:

  • Don't just keep attacking over and over—once it uses Spear Guard, back off or it'll counter-attack.
  • Use Fire Pots. It's very weak to fire and has low health to begin with, so a single pot will do a lot of damage even at low levels
  • Long windups and attack animations leave it very vulnerable to backstabs

 

Melee Users

Baiting: Stay close and towards its left to tempt it into using Spear Stab, Impale, or Sacred Phalanx. When it starts winding up one of these slow attacks, circle around behind it and get a backstab critical.

Magic and Ranged Users

Waiting Game: Don't underestimate the Cleanrot Knight's range. It may not have any ranged attacks, but Rushdown is very good at closing distance and Impale will do a lot of damage if it connects. If your spells take a while to cast, either make sure you're across the arena or it's distracted by your summons.

 

Cleanrot Knight Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Slash parry icon 40pxSwings the sword in its right hand Block, roll backwards, or roll in the direction of the swing
Jab parry icon 40pxPulls back its right arm, then quickly stabs forward with its sword Roll to either side when you see its right arm pull back

Spear Variant
Spear Stab parry icon 40pxPulls its spear back for a second, then stabs it forward Roll to either side as you see its spear pass its head. If you have a quick weapon, you can get in a hit while it winds up
Twin Stab parry icon 40pxHolds both its swords and spear pointing forward for a second, then stabs them both together in front of it This doesn't have a lot of forward range, so you can easily move away during its long windup
Rushdown Brings its spear level with the ground and glowing golden, then runs forward with it extended. This is usually followed up with Impale. Roll to either side as soon as you see the spear start glowing
Impale parry icon 40pxPulls back its spear, then thrusts the spear forward and up. If this hits, it will impale you and instantly inflict Scarlet Rot Roll to either side when you see it pull back its spear, and avoid getting hit by Rushdown
Spear Guard Crosses its spear and sword in front of its chest, blocking attacks from the front Keep your distance and wait for it to put its guard down before attacking again
Golden Shove Crosses its spear and sword if they aren't already. They glow with golden light as it shoves them forward Roll away when you see it cross its sword and spear
Sacred Phalanx Lets its spear fall down behind it to its left, then drags it forward, leaving a golden glow on the ground that erupts into holy spears in a straight line. Roll around it clockwise, as its right flank is unprotected during this attack. Make sure to avoid the golden glow on the ground
Retreating Phalanx Extends its spear forward and to its right, then drags it counterclockwise behind it while it steps backwards, leaving a golden glow on the ground that erupts into holy spears Keep back and avoid the golden glow on the ground, then close back in once the holy spears have vanished

      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).

            • Anonymous

              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.

                                          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.

                                                            Ok, help, I can NOT beat these guys in the abandoned cave. I'm sure its my gaming skills. I have my lone wolf ashes and flame of the redmanes. I get in, summon my wolves and just cant get any hits in before I get hit. Any other advice? I'm like level 50 and just cannot beat these guys. Thanks in advance

                                                                There are 3 Ghsot Cleanrot knights at the end of Raddans location, secrect cave. 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. You can keep farming them without running forth and back!

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).

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    One of the people saying they drop trina's lily says this happened in the heart of aeonia, which is where you find Trina's tomb (at least I assume it's trina's tomb, you find trina's sword in that area) so probably there's lore implications to the drop. 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.

                                                                    • Anonymous

                                                                      Two of the Crucible Knight Bosses are named Ordovis and Siluria.
                                                                      It's a shame there's no named Cleanrot Knight Boss encounter.
                                                                      ... At least we got Cleanrot Knight Finlay for summoning, but it's not quite the same, you know...

                                                                      • Anonymous

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
