Dark Souls II
Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin
  • In Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin: numerous Dragon Knights are present. They are non-aggressive and will bow to you. They will attack you if you pass the Drakekeepers without defeating them. The Dragon Knight with the Greatsword(s) always will attack.
  • The Dragon Knights will remain passive if you do not attack any of them, if you do not skip (therefore defeat) every Drakekeeper, and defeat the Dragon Knight at the end of the long staircase powerstancing the two great swords.
  • The Dragon Knights may attack you if you summon a white or gold phantom, including NPC phantoms, but this has supposedly been patched.
