Festering Fingerprint Vyke, also known as Vyke, Knight of the Roundtable is an enemy Invader and Boss in Elden Ring. The Invader version of Vyke is called Festering Fingerprint Vyke and will invade on the path towards the Church of Inhibition, wielding his notable War Spear. The Boss version of Vyke is known as Roundtable Knight Vyke, and is the boss within the Lord Contender's Evergaol.

 

 No other Tarnished was closer to the throne of the Elden Lord than Vyke. But without announcement, Vyke traveled far below the capital, and was scorched by the flame of frenzy.

Did he make his choice for his maiden, or did some other force lure him with suggestion?

    • Serious question:
      Why we, as a player, get this thing called "poise" which is basically non existent. And we have to fight things that have actual poise which works as intended. What is the ****ing point?

        I did manage to inflict rot on him with the dragon incantation, but it doesn't last long, just enough to get him to spend his flask

          boss version is immune to everything...except getting smashed in the face by my giant throbbing purple stones.

          this dude was a chump against rock sling, took him out in no time from across the evergoal. he staggers easy, so he never even had a chance to fight back.

          • I don’t know if it was just good luck or something but spamming lion’s claw on a +18 Greatsword completely destroyed the evergaol version of this guy

              Vyke as a Boss has an unique version of his spear that can be buffed. he uses the "Vyke's Dragonbot" meaning that he will be weak to lightning dmg

              • If you're a mage, you can easily bully him by spamming Stars of Ruin (at least you can with the Evergaol version, don't know about the other one). All he'll be able to do is try and fail to dodge them until he's dead.

                • Anonymous

                  For the evergaol
                  He's very susceptible to poise damage so I'd recommend using the Nightrider's Glaive.
                  After each hit he is very likely to panic roll so by stepping in between each swing and resetting the combo you will be able to chain rollcatch him until you run out of stamina.

                  There are several points in the fight were he will give you free hits to start rollcatching him such as when he spawns, whenever he tries to buff, and when he tries to drink a flask. The flask and buff especially are repeatable and can be interrupted causing him to try and cast them again giving you even more free hits.

                  His AI also seems to get confused by throwables and will roll as you throw them not when they're about to hit him allowing you to use Gravity Stone Fans to open him up to rollcatching too.

                  I wouldn't recommend trying to interrupt any of his WA, Incantations, or spells as they seem to give him alot of hyper armour and are likely to oneshot you with <40 vigor.

                  Every build should be able to use this especially with a strength talisman to meet the weapon requirements, though using your stat specific high poise damaging weapon would probably make this easier.

                    Unless you're a parry god the easiest way to beat him in Liurnia Lakes is with spells or incantations, just glintstone pebble or uncharged lightning spear will work, just keep backing away from him and quick casting. He's much easier at the Evergaol as he's not building up a ton of madness with every little hit, just make sure you check your lightning dam negation, put on the boltdrake talisman, use a lightningproof dried liver etc

                      Can confirm the Roundtable version deals some kind of damage through guard with no buffs. If I had to guess it looks like he is dealing the Fire damage from his Festering version.

                      • Anonymous

                        The Roundtable version will try to buff in the beginning of the fight, I suggest don't let him. At 1/2 health he gains hyper armor and increased casting speed so he will buff himself regardless of what you do by that point, but it makes the first 1/2 easier. I just took him to 1/2 health by interrupting his casts and staying in his face. At 1/2 health he just ignored the poise damage and cast through me hitting him 2-3 times, so the AI will "cheat" when you are winning.

                          Trash design boss fight. Artificially stated out the ass and immune to status effects. Also gets semi-hyper armor for most of his interactions, you need a strong attack to stop anything he is doing. And God be with you, cause if you can't break his animations he'll blow you up. I suggest cheats/hacks, turn this guy into a joke.

                            I use grave scythe and if you pair that with a parry shield, you can get a full combo off on him after parries whilst he gets back up (assuming he rolls sideways instead of backwards)

                            just bare in mind that when you get his health around below half he just starts spamming spells

                            • Anonymous

                              Why is he summoned as an "NPC" type with no white ghost effect yet totally immune to bleed? Can FROM be consistent in their rule bending at least?

                                So who put him in the evergaol, and why is that version of him seemingly from before he got madness (he’s using his Dragon Cult abilities).
                                If he got put in because of his madness and has reformed himself, why does he invade you using said madness skills??

                                  weird how this guy and Millicent gets unique versions of weapons, he get a no madness version of his spear with a storm ash and Millicent gets shamshir with water fowl dance.

                                    Found this guy after giving up on Alecto, and he was a holiday in comparison.

                                    Back off from his specials, and jump-attack over his spear attacks. Actually, you can pretty much jump over every spear attack in the game.

                                        Impossible to kill except with extremely specialized builds, like half the bosses in this game. Garbage.

                                          Another tip for people struggling, if you can manage 17 faith Lightning Spear absolutely wrecks him. Don't charge it, and he will never dodge the uncharged attack. As a bonus his self buffing incant makes him weaker to lightning damage, and his low poise means the spear will always stagger him. If you don't have the faith, you can use faith knot tear in your physick, the fight should be over before it runs out.

                                            Fromsoft devs be like: "hmmm, this boss feels kindda weak to the zone he's at. Maybe I should spend some time to enhance it's battle AI?? Nah, I'll just give him estus, lightning spells that can one-shot and immunity to all status effects. That'll do it."

                                              Storm stomp into heavy claymore attack can be spammed(he gets stunlocked), until you run out of stamina, pretty funny

                                                Crazy theory here, but I think I know why he uses madness outside the evergoal, but not within it. The frenzied flame doesn't occupy bodies as shabriri leads you to believe. It instead clones tarnished to use as puppets. Normally it arranges to have the originals killed as it did with Yura and Irina so that they can't interfere with their clones Shabriri and Hyetta. Vyke however proved too powerful to kill, so the three fingers imprisoned him in the evergoal instead. Somewhere out there your original tarnished is locked away, and after getting molested by the three fingers you then progress the game as an empty clone husk.

                                                • Fixed on 1.04, he invades at the church (just like Edgar invades at the revenger's shack) - I cleared all of Liurnia btw so no issue with that

                                                    so I guess like dungeater you can invade from evergaols but are limited in the things you can actually do. But why is he using his regular skills in the evergaol and his frenzy skills as an invader. I wonder if you kill Vyke in the Evergaol first if he'll still invade near the frenzied village.

                                                      Vyke reach the throne, thorn blocked the throne. His maiden offer to burn the erdtree for him to become the lord.
                                                      On the way to the mountaintops, there he met Shabriri, whom Frenzy God sent to lure Vyke to inherit Frenzy Flame, like what it said to us.
                                                      Vyke choose to save his maiden, went to seek three finger, with his armor on. Three finger grapped him, print the mark all over Vyke's armor.
                                                      Neither they know, although Frenzy Flame did infect Vyke, but it's not inherited, Vyke can't envision the flame, he can't lit the forge.

                                                      So after this fail attempt, Frenzy God learned. In its 2nd attempt, it got us a maiden, which is also the girl who died beneath our very eyes, to play with our guilt even more, so that we can't resist to help her. And that's why when we did get to the three finger this time, we're requested to get naked.

                                                      Vyke action was found, and jailed in evergaol. His maiden failed her mission of guiding tarnished Vyke, soon her life was taken away from her.
                                                      Vyke still protecting his maiden, so he invaded us when we reach the church of inhibition, where his maiden lies.

                                                        anyone else think it's strange he's immune to status? I also think it's weird his evergoal version is basically a entirely different person then the invader using lightning abilities and no frenzy at all despite clearly being the same person.

                                                          he appears to be immune to scarlet rot for some bizarre reason. That or my 100 pokes with a antspur rapier that killed him just wasn't enough to rot him somehow.

He won't dodge it, doesn't see it coming, and it'll interrupt when he tries to heal. He didn't even manage to make it up to be close enough to attack before he bit the dust when I fought him. I initially started using it to deal with the enemies in Zamor Ruins, but this spell is absolutely monstrous against anything that wants to make calculated dodges.

His spear also mentions that he is tormented by the flame, while the frenzied flame disciples seem quite happy to get it.

                                                                                          • Anonymous

It's said that he was close to the dragon waifu Lansseax, migh have been one of the main folks of the ancient dragon cult, considering there's a dragon-lightining miracle named after him. And it's said that he was the Tarnished to get the closest to the Elden Lord title...
                                                                                            But now he seems to be the currrent (or former) leader of this Frenzied Flame cult. I hope there's more to it, he seems to be a rather interesting character

                                                                                                        Then I accidentially rolled off a high cliff whilst backing off and this fool just yote himself after me, with both of us dying from fall damage.

                                                                                                        Now, I'm not saying I deserved that win, but he most definitely deserved that death. Such an annoying enemy.

Tested on about 40 faith with +17 godskin seal. I knew it oneshots tarnished, but didn't expect for it to work on a boss tier one :)
