Haligtree Knight is a Humanoid Enemy in Elden Ring Haligtree Knights are the elite defenders of Miquella's Haligtree. They are the heavier counterparts of the Haligtree Soldiers and are typically found in smaller numbers but are nonetheless more deadly.

 

Knights who have vowed to serve Miquella's Haligtree. They are skilled in using both magical and holy skills, loyally protecting the rotted Haligtree to the very end.

 

Haligtree Knight Locations in Elden Ring

Haligtree Knights can be found in Elphael, Brace of the Haligtree at the following locations:

  • Two standing on either side of the Putrid Avatar  guarding the passage near the Elphael Inner Wall Site of Grace. Neither of these drop Haligtree Crest Greatshields, despite one of the knights using one, although further testing could prove otherwise. See the Haligtree Crest Greatshield page for more information.
  • Several in the graveyard next to the church, below the Drainage Channel Site of Grace.

      My +10 mimic easily survives and beats two of these knights (where the avatar was) at the same time without my help. It’s how I farmed their armor set.

      My build was 50%+ physical def from armor and talismans, power-stanced heavy Great Stars hammers, Prayerful Strike for healing, Blood Lord exultation and rotten wing insignia for extra damage. Consumables: boiled crab, physick with opaline tear.

      Summon and stay away, watch the show. As a bonus, this mimic can also solo kill Malenia who is nearby.

        I have a theory that all of these knights are actually a greater god that was split apart for being too powerful. It's the only explanation for these guys! Even Soldier of God, Rick would tremble before them.

          BORDERLINE artifical diffuclty. HO LY ****. Not even +10 mimic survives them. **** ton of health and they just two shot me with 60 vigor. And they can fully restore their health. If youre playing dex character I suggest you just run past them. Whoever designed and balanced them, I hope you step on a lego.

              They seem to be immune to the bewitching branch, I tried on one and he just turned around and attacked me.

                My way of killing them quick is powerstancing two big weapons and jump attacking until they stagger, critical, etc. Problem is, it's only good for 1vs1. Do it fast enough and they can't even heal but give them time to breathe and they're 100% health again.

                They sure as hell didn't skip training. Holy ****.

                  Probably worth noting that the Haligtree Crest Greatshield does not drop from knights wielding the spear or greatbow (even though they can switch to the greatsword). So if you want to farm that you need to do the ones in the roots, not the ones at the inner wall site.

                    I've found my Royal Greatsword +10 to be incredibly effective, even against two at once. It breaks their poise every hit, and I only have 30 str and 22 int

                      Farming the greatshield from only one Knight was just a pure **** move on Miyazaki's part. The knight can drop his full set, arrows or Miquella's Lily. What on gods green ****in earth does he drop a Lily? That can be found in dozens on places. Who in their right mind would farm it from an enemy when it can be picked up off the ground in MULTIPLE locations. It unnecessarily makes getting the shield harder. Because between the other items he can drop potentially 7 including the shield. Been farming for 4 days now with over 200 discovery and not once has he dropped the shield. Seriously **** you Miyazaki.

                        I've found that a good way of quickly killing them is to equip the Giant Hunt Ash. This can work if you're fighting two at once, but it will obviously be WAY harder. Fighting two of these with any strat is a nightmare. Anyways. Time it so that your Giant Hunt hits them after they've started an attack so that their shield is down. If timed right, Giant Hunt will do it's thing and they will be having a great chat with the ceiling...then the floor will give them a hard reality check. As they're on the ground and starting to get back up, hit Giant Attack again and you'll launch them back into the air before they can bring their shield up again. Repeat. Once you get it down this will go very quickly. Not a very honorable way to fight, but if you're just farming trying to get the shield, honor means nothing.

                          IMO these guys are the real bosses of elden ring. Forget Malenia and gimmicks, these guys will just pound the **** outta ya.

                            For farming the shield, I used Blasphemous blade art to knock him down when he is using his buff skill at the start then a second follow up to kill. Alternatively, You could use and big bonk with Royal Knights resolve and you should be able to two shot him with no problem.

                              as a mage, this probably the hardest enemy I fight until now, way harder then any boss. you only encounter 5 or 6 of these in the entire haligtree area, but they r a nightmare to deal with. they can self flask to full health in 1 drink and have insane damage output along with incantation and heavy shield that will make u cry if u fight them head on. with 41 vigor I still die to these bastard in 3 shot if I get hit. certain build like bleed/frost might do better against these type of enemy, as they seem to be very weak against fast rapid attack/guard break.

                                Any absorb stats for this guy? It must be fairly high for both fire and slashing, because my blasphemous blade barely tickles them relative to what it does for other enemies.

                                    I don't know why these guys are so damn tanky compared to most other elite enemies, but Dragonscale Blade seems pretty effective. You get your frost procs + lightning damage weakness + fast attack speed

                                      These knights need a nerf, big-time. They're regenerating themselves over time as well, not just the 100% heal by flask, so if you're more strategic instead of brute force, they'll have healed some of the damage you just did. Thankfully there aren't many, but they make the DS black and silver knights look like a joke.

                                        These guys suck so hard, only a couple weapons seem to be able to handle them well, otherwise you are going to get guard countered so hard.

                                          blasphemous blade’s weapon art (tested with +9, 42 faith) paired with flame grant me strength and golden vow, fire scorpion charm and shard of alexander will kill them in 2-3 hits, (a good hit does 2341) plus the weapon art heals a portion of HP when you hit them. makes them loads easier to farm

                                            I say these guys should get the ability to fly and shoot lasers from huge distance. They are clearly underpowered.

                                              I can confirm that after two hours, the church night near the root grace dropped it with 228 item discovery. Frustrating! The other two knights I farmed for about 1.5 hours earlier and never dropped it.

                                                here is an insta kill tactic
                                                use a twinblade or a polearm with black flame tornado ash of war, crouch and approach the left one from his back and use the skill, one more time, done. Do it on the other one too.

                                                you can also use the wondrous flask to buff fire damage and poise just in case, ALSO, use shard of alexander for more dmg.

                                                tada, insta kills with 0 effort. gl farming.

                                                  Alternatively, at the Elphael Inner Wall site of grace, if you don't want to use summons, you can lure the left one out by shooting it and draw it back in, near the site of grace, but it will take a while longer. Try to make sure that when his hp is getting low, that there is a wall behind him so that you can keep hitting him and he doesn't jump away to heal.

                                                  You can position the knight in a way that they are in the corner of one of the pillars inside as well, while keeping pressure. That way it can't get away either.

                                                    Can be farmed at elphael inner wall. You can spawn a mimic tear or something else to distract one knight and the other, when hitting him the right way, can be backed into a small opening, meaning you can pummel it and when it tries to heal it won't be able to get away. Then when you're done, the second won't be able to heal because of the barrage of attacks between you and your summon.

                                                    You can kill both of them and get about 12-13k runes in under a min if you do it right.

                                                      They're just too strong. Too much damage, too much HP, they cast sorceries, buff themselves, use 100% healing flasks at low health, use greatbows, use spears that close large distances quickly. They make the Silver/Black knights from DS3 look like pansy boys. They went too far with these guys, they are mini bosses disguised as regular enemies.

                                                                These knights heal at low health, cast sorceries, use buffs, in addition to using great bows. They use spear, or sword, along with the shield. And have a similar move set to other knights, they seem to be resistant to fire, holy, and lighting. I haven’t tried other effects yet. Apparently they drop the knights set except the helm, which increases faith.
