  • Drop rate of items is extremely low. Players will likely have to temporarily join the Company of Champions or use several Bonfire Ascetics if they want to collect each item.
  • Be aware that their health is very high and can withstand a single hard blow attack, it is advised to lure one at a time.
  • Note that the Dragon Knights are very similar to players in intelligence and will parry you, guard break you, roll dodge attacks, leap attack you, and even heal themselves.
  • In Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, they will bow to you and remain non-hostile unless you avoid killing the Drakekeepers or run past the glowing Dragon Knight near the end of the shrine. They will also turn hostile if you summon an npc like Bashful Ray(not in the newest version 2.02)
  • In Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin, they will turn hostile if you summon a player phantom or shade, or use a Seed of a Tree of Giants.
