Crucible Knight is a Field Boss in Elden Ring. These heavily-armored warriors take patience and practice to defeat. This is an optional boss as players don't need to defeat it to advance in Elden Ring.

Other Crucible Knights appear in the Crucible Knight and Misbegotten Warrior, Tanith's Knight, Crucible Knight Ordovis, and Crucible Knight Siluria boss fights. Two  Crucible Knight spirits can also be summoned by the Spirit-Caller Snail boss of the the Road's End Catacombs.

The Crucible Knight Set states there used to be exactly 16 Crucible Knights and indeed, exactly 16 of them can be fought around the Lands Between, though two of them have evidently died and can only be fought post mortem in spirit form.

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.

Crucible Knight (Sword) Fight Strategy

The Best Tips for Crucible Knight:

 

Melee Users

Crucible Knight's attacks are slow and easy to predict, but hit very hard when they land. Take your time, don't panic, and don't go for more attacks than you have time for—trading damage is not the way to win this fight. Dodge multiple times until its combo is done, then counterattack. Don't be afraid to dodge forward through attacks, as this can put you in better position. Be particularly careful of its Seismic Wave attack, which hits a wide area but can easily be jumped and (with more difficulty) rolled.

Parrying: Because its attacks are quite easy to predict, Parrying is a great way to get in damage consistently. Most of its Phase 1 attacks are parriable and you can often parry several in a row, but be prepared to roll if you see it preparing to do a Shield Bash or Seismic Wave.

Avoid Status: Not only does Crucible Knight have high resistance to all status ailments, its aggressive attack patterns make it hard to land frequent hits. This makes status ailments a poor strategy. It's much better to use a weapon that does a high amount of raw damage than one whose power comes from building up Poison or Hemorrhage.

Magic and Ranged Users

Roll directly away from its attacks to keep your distance. Seismic Wave is the most challenging, because it's hard to reliably dodge by rolling away; you can instead jump away to avoid this, or roll to either side.

Chip Away: Although the Crucible Knight's shield will block many magic spells, it'll still take chip damage. You can whittle away its health very effectively by spamming spells if you have enough Cerulean Flasks. In addition to the chip damage through the shield, you'll be able to get some full hits in when its guard is down during an attack or recovery.

Crucible Knight (Sword) Attacks & Counters

Attack Description Counter
Swing parry icon 40pxSwings its sword in various directions Dodge diagonally forward to avoid follow-ups, then land a hit if you're in a safe location
Lunging Stab parry icon 40pxRuns towards you then stabs its sword straight ahead. This attack has a surprisingly long hitbox Dodge to your left so you can counterattack on the side without the shield
Running Slash parry icon 40pxRuns towards you with its sword held against its left shoulder, then swings clockwise Dodge diagonally forward to prevent its follow-up, then land a hit if you're in a safe location
Shield Bash Hunches down behind its shield and takes a few steps towards you before lifting it up in the air Dodge into or around its shield, then attack back during the long recovery period
Grinding Swing parry icon 40pxDrags its sword along the ground to its left sending up sparks, then slashes it upwards Dodge in any direction
Seismic Wave Raises its left knee with its sword out to one side, then stomps creating a shockwave along the ground Jumping is the most reliable way to avoid this, but can take some practice if you're used to rolling. Rolling left, right, or forwards also works, but rolling backwards has much tighter timing and is not recommended.
Seismic Combo parry icon 40pxHolds its sword aloft while doing a Seismic Wave, then slams it down in front. Finally, spins clockwise slashing twice with its sword It's safest to jump backwards and get out of range for the rest of the combo, but you can also dodge once to the side and then again backwards. Only the sword swings are parriable
Ordovis's Vortex parry icon 40pxSpins its greatsword behind its head and then slams it down, causing a small explosion. Only Crucible Knight Ordovis and Tanith's Knight can do this move. Run back during the long windup. If you time it correctly, you can dodge around them to get in a hit or two.
Phase 2
Phase Transition Raises its right knee and stomps, releasing a small blast of holy energy. This is always the first attack it does in Phase 2, and always followed by a Flying Dive. Walk backwards, or roll if you're wanting to be careful, and prepare for a Flying Dive.
Flying Dive Grows a pair of golden wings and leaps into the sky, then dives towards you with sword outstretched Roll towards it once its sword is level with the ground. This attack can be jumped over
Tail Spin Grows a small golden tail and swings it in a circle counterclockwise. Usually used when you're by its back Roll to your right
Great Tail Spin Grows a large golden tail and swings it in a circle clockwise. The tail then gets even larger and spins in another circle. Only used below 40% health Roll to your right to dodge each swing. If you think you're out of range of the second swing, you probably aren't
Fire Breath Grows a large throat sac and walks forward while breathing fire in a conical area in front of it. Run away when you see the bag on its throat inflate.
Fire Breath Retreat It will grow a large throat sac, jump backwards, and breathes a short-ranged burst of fire. Roll away when you see it jump back.

The Best Tips for Crucible Knight:

  • Use Rock Sling (3-4 hits will break its stance)

 

Melee Users

The fight against this boss is hard but very well balanced, it makes quick heavy attacks and moves around the field very quickly. But your advantage is that it does not have a great pool of Health. When you face a spear knight with melee, try to keep close and stay behind. You can summon spirit ashes if you choose to.  Keep circling to avoid their line of sight, therefore avoiding their hit range making it easier for you to parry or roll through any attacks. This will also put you in a better position to attack. 

With the knights,  it is recommended to parry their attacks rather than avoid due to their poise and stamina. At mid range, make sure to back up and roll away from these hits. If it performs a stab, block it with your shield if you brought one with you. It is possible to interrupt some of its attacks. If given a window, deal a critical hit then when they are down, follow up with a series of attacks. Their hp should deplete quickly due to their smaller health pool. 

Use a combination of baiting and waiting for these windows while parrying other attacks and dodging into another position until its hp its depleted. If it comes in for a grab attack, avoid it to refrain from taking a great a mount of damage. 

Magic and Ranged Users

The Knight can be attacked from a far distance before it comes into battle. Ride your mount. Keep distance, reload and drink mana potions while keeping distance. This boss takes a lot of damage against Spells. Use your heavy handed spells and continue to circle and reposition behind it. If you want to keep a further distance, there is a roof nearby where you can position yourself where it can't reach you. You can continue to deal any kind of ranged attacks from here. 

If not, be weary of its quick lunges and dashes that are quick actions. Be ready to dash back and continue to attack until its health bar is depleted. 

Crucible Knight (Spear) Attacks & Counters

Swing parry icon 40pxSwings its spear in various directions Dodge diagonally forward to avoid follow-ups, then land a hit if you're in a safe location; or guard and attack back quickly before it combos
Thrust parry icon 40pxThrusts its spear forward Dodge to the side

Double Strike parry icon 40pxSwings its spear clockwise into the ground, kicking up dirt, and then counterclockwise back out again Dodge towards its right side and land a hit while it's still locked into the attack
Seismic Wave Raises its left knee with its sword out to one side, then stomps creating a shockwave along the ground Jumping is the most reliable way to avoid this, but can take some practice if you're used to rolling. Rolling left, right, or forwards also works, but rolling backwards has much tighter timing and is not recommended.
Siluria's Woe parry icon 40pxHolds up its spear and starts spinning it, creating a cone of holy energy, then thrusts it forward shooting an energy spiral. This is usually limited to Phase 2, but can be used in response to item use in Phase 1 Roll as soon as it begins to step forward.
Phase 2
Phase Transition Raises its right knee and stomps, releasing a small blast of holy energy. This is always the first attack it does in Phase 2, and always followed by a Flying Dash Walk backwards, or roll if you're nervous, and prepare for a Flying Dash
Flying Dash Grows a pair of golden wings and leaps into the sky with holy energy whirling around its spear, then quickly dives forward and creates an explosion where it lands Roll forward as you see its wings become vertical
Horn Impale Summons a long horn of holy light on its hand and swings it forward, impaling you if it hits. Since this is a grab attack, it cannot be blocked. Dodge back and to your left. This attack can come out very quickly and deals a lot of damage.
Horn Shoulder Charge Summons horns on its shoulder and shoves them towards you, dashing to cover distance if necessary. Dodge forward and to your right when you see it start to move

Elden Ring Crucible Knight (Stormveil Castle)

  • This enemy does not have a boss bar, but it will not respawn when killed
  • Closest Site of Grace: Rampart Tower
  • Multiplayer is allowed for this boss
  • You can summon Spirit Ashes for this boss

Elden Ring Crucible Knight Location

This Crucible Knight is at the top of a seaside cliff in a hidden corner of Stormveil Castle. From the Rampart Tower Site of Grace, head northwest along the ramparts until you see a small area to your left where a Warhawk comes from. Drop off this to a ledge below and follow the route until you reach a ledge overlooking the sea. This should crumble beneath your feet; if it doesn't, roll or swing your weapon to trigger it. Once you fall down, you should see the Crucible Knight. Note that there's a lift back to the Rampart Tower Site of Grace immediately after this Knight, which may be worth activating so you can return more easily if you die. This lift can also be used to instantly defeat the Cruicible Knight by luring it towards it and then either riding the lift upwards so the Knight will perform a sword lunge into the resulting bottomless pit beneath it, or sending the knight itself upwards, which will cause it to walk off the platform and die.

      "Hey! What if we took Black Knights, cranked them full of crack and steroids, made them immune to backstabs, made them unstaggerable, and generally made them infinitely more annoying to fight in every way? Oh and make sure they drop nothing but a poor amount of runes and no other worthwhile drops!" Is how i imagine the conversation the designers of these enemies had went, if your gonna make an enemy that strong, atleast make them drop something that makes taking the time to kill them worth the trouble. They did that with the Black Knights from the Souls trilogy, why not these?

      • Anonymous

        The one in stormhill is by far stronger than ANY of the others in the game. Its the only one that actually ever gave me trouble. Its so strong, but the rune reward for it SUCKS. Such a weird super boss

        • Anonymous

          Fought one that drops Crucible Hornshield in Siofra Aqueduct. After a few attempts I started to beat him really good, but he flew to his doom into the abyss. Bastard didn't want to give me satisfying victory.

          • Anonymous

            You can cheese the first phase of the Stormhill one. When you hit their shield, they almost always go for a shield bash attack. Just move sideways while locked on to them, and if you do it properly you dodge the attack. You then get 2-3 free hits, after which point you hit the shield again and repeat.

            This still kinda works in the second phase but you have far fewer opportunities to execute it.

            • This is peak enemy design, absolutely well designed enemy that even tops revenants in quality, everytime theres a crucible knight i am absolutely joyfull to fight them because of how fantastic and fun they are to fight. They shouldve made Crucible Knights respawn and everytime you die to them they should have their stats doubled

              • This page says there is lore about there being exactly 16 crucible knights mentioned in the armor set, but, none of the armor pieces have this info on them? Where is the source of info that lore-wise there are 16 of them. (I am well aware there are 16 crucible knights in the game, but the page says that matches lore, and I cannot find that lore)

                  Neither Crucible Knight encounter in Crumbling Farum Azula allows spirit summoning, contrary to what is said here.

                    The first Crucible Knight in CFA does NOT allow spirit summons, contrary to what it says here. I suspect the same is true of the second.

                      The worst part about the fight against this dude paired with the Leonine Misbegotten in Redmane Castle is the amount of crap strewn all over the arena that's there just to **** you over by getting you stuck on stupid furniture that you can't break by rolling through for some stupid reason.

                      • Anonymous

                        I used to think that the reason why their thrust attack has so much range was because of dumb hitboxes, but i noticed that the real reason why thats the case is because the moment he executes the attack he does a cheeky little lunge to catch you for thinking he's too far to hit you, these guys are such cheeky bastards.

                        • Anonymous

                          I swear breaking these guys stance is impossible. I hit them with 3 fully charged great club R2s and they just shrug it off. Maybe their poise just regens insanely fast or they're immune to stance breaks but I've never seen it happen.

                            One of my best moments in this game is when i lured one of these dudes in Stormveil Castle onto an ascending elevator, and seeing him faceplant onto the floor right next to me Looney Tunes style, getting trashed by the bastard in the Stormhill Evergaol made that moment even funnier for me.

                            • Anonymous

                              At Stormhill baiting his thrust attack, rolling away, and punishing with stomp worked for me. On the second stage of the fight, roll back immediately after staggering him cause he'll try to tail swipe.

                                    Storm hill Castle: I accidentally cheesed it by running onto the elevator. It did a combo and fell down the elevator shaft

                                    My first time meeting them in Siofra Aqueduct, I accidentally cheesed both of them by dodging their wings flying attacks. They both flew off and fell to their deaths.

                                    Elden ring is my first fromsoft game and my first video game in general (not including browser games). so I’m a noob, but I found that Stamp, Upward Cut AOW is really easy to use and effective, at least for the Siofra/Belfries one.

                                      Ancient Death Rancor + 9 mana pots = hilarity. Just keep spamming and it works wonders on the shield knights. Eventually they get knocked down. Don't bother charging them, just keep spamming. Cheese the cheese. Extra large cheese with a side of cheese. Insanely satisfying.

                                        Absolutely hate these pieces of sh!t. Infinite poise, infinite stamina, insane damage all around, they literally have no weakness and parrying them does jack sh!t. **** you Fromsoft.

                                        • how does sleep affect them? is it like the godskins where they effectively go into a coma or is it like players where they just get stunned for half a second.

                                            They are very easy to parry and a good teacher to learn the skill. If you want an easy way to kill them, basically a cheese, use Flame of the Redmanes skill on any weapon. Two uses will stagger them for riposte every time.

                                              The amount of poise these dudes have would make Havel seem like a scrawny twig by comparison, They can facetank a dual-wielded colossal sword jump attack to the face without even flinching.

                                                Near the end of the game, yet i still dread these dudes, if you are fighting these dudes be careful to time your flasks well, or else you'll get a 8ft long greatsword jab right into you likely before you could even sip, and try parrying, even as someone who is very bad at parrying (probably because i barely ever use it) it really helps against these bastards, especially a buckler or a shield with golden parry on it.

                                                  I hate how parrying is literally their only weakness because they're almost always grade A douchebags otherwise, obnoxiously long reach on almost every attack, always punishes you for even daring to so much as think about healing, eats almost everything you throw at him without even so much as flinching, pretty much never stops attacking, resistant to everything, can't be backstabbed, annoying bs grab, hits like a freight train, just screw these aholes, you can get used to them but they never stop being unfun and annoying as hell to fight without having a shield to parry them with.

                                                    I wouldn't call these guys unfair but they are kind of unfun. The shield really limits your creativity in how you approach the fight. You just dodge his attack chain and get like two hits worth of scratch damage in and rinse and repeat until he's dead. Parrying's also an option but it's still pretty repetitive.

                                                        I just found two cheese spots at Redmane castle at NG+ to kill him before fighting the Leonine Misbegotten. The bridge above the boss fog is the better one.
                                                        I jumped onto the wall where the indestructible lantern was and walked along it to where I could see the knight. After that I do a jump trick(jump straight up, then hold run in midair, which allows you to do a long jump from standstill when you land) to get onto another lantern for a much better angle.
                                                        All arrows will do damage, just in case you run out of poison/rot arrows. I didn't try a great bow, but I'm sure that'll do more damage as long as it doesn't move him out of sight.

Also protect yourself with a shield from the stomp attacks. If he goes up, go down, run like a coward and go back on the rock. Not proud, but this boss war just no fun for me.

                                                                      • Anonymous

                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                          • Anonymous

Absurd health and damage, high mobility and reach, attacks that can go through shields (sometimes they do, sometimes they don't, it's never ****ing consistent), inconsistent and unpredictable (mostly) attacks, immunity or extremely high resistances to status effects, high defense, large heath pool...

                                                                            Like I said, NOTHING about them is remotely fair.

Based on some half-assed calculations, his health should be around 2550, which would make sense considering he is much bulkier than his counterpart on Stormveil castle (who according to his page has 1391hp).

                                                                              • Anonymous

                                                                                  In the earlier games when you "git gud" I could run through the game with varied builds and always find new answers to the same problems, but against Crucible knight no matter what I end up playing by his rules and defeat them by knowing as the player what his intentional counters are.
                                                                                  And moreso the whole game feels the same way on multiple characters, no matter if I'm running Pyromancy, Dragon Incants, Pure melee, Occult or whatever, every time I turn a corner I do it in the exact same way, never do I really use my character's abilities in creative ways anymore since the game usually responds with "so you have chosen death" any time I try to go off-script and play with the new tools the game gives us.

                                                                                  • Anonymous

After his lunge, shield bash or any other longer recovery combo, you use determination just charge your stabbing R2. It aligns perfectly as he starts his next swing for you, which means that you counter attack him for like 1.5k damage or so, ending him in 2-3 hits based on version. **** this guy.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

Make sure you're at the same elevation though, if the CK is higher up than you, you can still get nailed trying to jump the second swipe.

                                                                                        • Anonymous

                                                                                              (also has anyone else noticed that your hand clips really bad when you 2 hand siluria's tree?)

                                                                                                I don’t wanna be a pussy saying I need an easy moveset. I like it. However, it really just forces me to use a ranged attack on him, or be so overleveled that I can trade with him. But all’s well, lots of enemies don’t require ranged attacks.

                                                                                                • Anonymous

Stay close to them - this makes the AI think the generic sword thrusts are the best move they can do - and just constantly sidestep their attacks and hit them in the back, simply don't get greedy.

Rotten breath helps shorten the fight, then just stay away and pelt them with spells (I prefer Ancient Death Rancor, but other things work). Still need to do a fair amount of dodging.

Some enemies like Revenants that move fast as **** and never stop attacking are a chore to fight with the limited mobility, but these knights are balanced perfectly in my opinion. Tough, but fair.

Easy to parry and combo's well with the assasin's crimson dagger talisman especially if you are trading blows and need to replenish your health. I did notice however, maybe it's just me but when their phase 2 starts I feel the parry timings change, smaller window and delayed slightly to pull it off but nontheless they taught me to be patient and not to be affraid to parry other enemies in the game.

                                                                                                                  • For the one in Farum Azula I went left and kept one of those fallen stones/dragon parts between us as a barrier. It severely reduced his mobility as he was stuck behind it. Some of his attacks can still hit through it absurdly, but it made it so I was able to beat him. Second stage wasn't too bad either since I'd dodge his flying swoop pretty easily and just go to the other side of the barrier.

                                                                                                                    • Anonymous

I just repeatedly Lion's Claw and heal when needed, so it turns into a slugging match with both of us trading hits. If you're a beefy mother****er, try giving these pricks a taste of their own medicine. It's incredibly satisfying.

Only experience with the Sword and Shields and not the Spear but hopefully it'll work even better considering no Shield to block the Gavel.

You just have to watch for one particular attack where he flies up in the air and then swoops at you, roll away from that and from the subsequent 'tail swipe' thing he does after and you should be fine
